How scary is a urinary tract infection for women? How scary is a prostate infection for men? Both conditions are experienced often in our world and, although painful and exhausting, do not put the fear of death in most of our minds. They shouldn’t under normal conditions. They are diseases that occur when our body’s immune system is unable to combat foreign “invaders.” Let’s add the word CANCER to our list of diseases and see if the response by the public becomes more fearful. Why? I believe more people associate the word cancer with death than urinary tract infections. My mother had both of these conditions. Can you guess which one caused her life to end? It wasn’t cancer! The point is, any disease including cancer can become fatal if the body’s immune system is compromised.
Understanding the environment needed within our bodies to allow healthy cells to become diseased cancer cells is a story worth understanding. It is a preventable condition in many cases and reversible in others if people are willing to begin living a lifestyle that provides the essentials needed to restore healthy function. IF, I am correct, treating cancer would become less feared and considered just another form of disease rather than a death sentence. Follow me, as I take you on a tour that provides an easy to understand explanation of CANCER.
The human cell (for most of us) is PERFECT. It is self regulating and has all the components necessary to function, multiply and “die a happy death.” These cells need us to provide sustainable support to allow the body to reproduce over five hundred thousand new cells every day. When a “hiccup” occurs in the process, our immune systems are called in to “clean up” the debris. Only healthy cells recognized by the immune system are permitted to remain. This system works non stop 24/7. Although most of us do not give it a second thought, good health is the NATURAL state for the human body and disease is the aberration.
As infants, we are provided regular feedings, regular sleep and regular playtime. We are nurtured; provided emotional “sustenance” also known as love. Under these conditions most infants thrive and develop into toddlers then children. Notice all the work required to become a healthy child. An infant, in most cases, would still develop and grow into becoming a child without all this work, but their system would likely function at sub par levels. This would typically go unnoticed analogous to the reduced brightness of a halogen lamp with a dimmer switch. The lamp may produce enough light to see, however, the intensity (maximal function) is impeded by the dimmer (limiting the potential for electrical flow.) We limit the human potential and impede our bodies capabilities when we engage in behaviors destructive to our needs. This is what makes us more susceptible to diseases including cancer. The cells in our bodies begin to lose the energy needed to replicate. This loss of energy weakens the structures inside our cells as well as the membrane surrounding the cell that acts as a protective barrier regulating what is permitted to enter and exit. Foreign matter (microbes, bacteria, viruses, etc…) begins to penetrate these cells interfering with the final process of cell life known as apoptosis (cellular death.) As the foreign matter’s DNA combines with our cell’s DNA it alters the health of the next generation of cells. Weak older cells continue to poorly function as new stronger unhealthy cells begin to reproduce. We call this process, CANCER.
Since we have established that our bodies under normal conditions are well designed to prevent disease including cancer, which approach makes more sense to return the body to a healthy state:
Chemotherapy Treatment vs. Radiation vs. Infra Red Sauna
injecting toxic chemicals (chemotherapy) into the body causing severe damage to the immune system needed to fight off disease.
subjecting the body to ionizing radiation (radiation therapy) that destroys both healthy and unhealthy cells with the potential side effect, CANCER.
providing the body with therapies that support healthy cell development while creating a hostile environment for cancerous cells. This HEALTHY approach would include therapeutic examples such as:
supporting a weakened immune system with vitamins, minerals, and herbs.
detoxifying the body to REMOVE ROOT CAUSE factors interfering with the normal process of cell development, reproduction and normal cellular death. It is important to remember that the process of detoxification is designed to rid PHYSICAL toxicities of the BODY as well as EMOTIONAL toxicities of the MIND.
removing processed sugar from the diet which cancer cells thrive on at a rate of approximately 16:1. This means that 16 cancer cells are provided a source of “food” to every 1 healthy cell. This is why cancer patients lose so much weight; cancer starves the body’s healthy cells.
alkalizing the body’s environment (with fruits and vegetables- The Gerson Diet) which becomes a toxic environment to cancer cells. Cancer cells need an acidic environment to survive.
oxygenate the body using hyperbaric chambers to increase intracellular oxygen levels. (cancer is anaerobic and cannot survive an oxygen rich environment)
infra red saunas, sono-photo dynamic therapy and the list goes on.
Choosing the 3rd option provides an approach that treats the body in a healthy manner with the ability to MAINTAIN QUALITY LIVING. Its approach is consistent with revitalizing and rebuilding health within the body on a cellular level using supportive techniques to enhance (not destroy) our immune systems.
Some may question, if this option works, why hasn’t the medical community jumped on board to offer these therapies?
ANSWER: Their training does not include any of the above choices. How can you recommend something you have never been trained in? They know drugs, chemotherapy and radiation. They will provide (with the best of intentions) the only methods they know to combat disease. Where is the proof that their methods are the best and most effective? We, out of FEAR, ASSUME that chemo and radiation are our only options. Those, willing to open their eyes and ears to new perspectives are witnessing many successful treatments that address cancer effectively and more humanely.
I leave you with one final thought. If fear is used as an approach by any healthcare provider to obtain compliance for ANY treatment recommendation, you may want to reconsider the members on YOUR HEALTH TEAM. A doctor should be supportive, compassionate caring and maintain patience with their patients. They should be open and responsive to ANYTHING that improves the outcome of ANY CONDITION including cancer. Those unwilling to respect your input may not be worthy of YOUR TIME.
Cancer, like any disease, (in most cases) is very treatable. The option you choose is important because it can determine the outcome of the quality of your life for as long as you live.
