A Must Read About Cancer

I just got a call today from my mother. Apparently my 41 year old aunt died today of cancer. She was so young and she died so quickly. I am actually angry at the doctors who have been treating her, filling her with radiation, chemo therapy and experimental drugs. I think she would have lived much longer had she not gone through all of that.

If only my aunt knew about alternative cancer treatments. She didn't want to listen to me or anyone else for that matter about health because she believed the chemo and experimental drugs from her doctors would cure her tumor.

This evening has been very hard on me emotionally. I feel more anger at the way cancer is treated in our society more so than anything else. Why do people put their fate so blindly in allopathic medicine, but doubt natural cures?

I feel as though I need to educate people that there is a cure for cancer. I doubt many will listen though, just like my aunt who refused to hear any of it.

If there is ever any one book that everyone should read on cancer. It is When Healing Becomes a Crime: The Amazing Story of the Hoxsey Cancer Clinics and the Return of Alternative Therapies.

This book changed my whole view on conventional medicine and the way it treats cancer. The American Medical Association has known there was a cure for cancer for many many years and because they couldn't commericalize and capitalize on it, they tried to get rid of it. If you know anyone who has cancer, please read that book! You can probably find it at your local library.

hi Amy. I'm sorry for your loss. (((((((((((Jesus, may your Aunt rest in peace. Amen.)))))))))))))))))))) So right about cancer, raw food diet is one thing to use. Also look up Quantum touch energy healings. Those work for me but my illness is more mental.

I am so sorry to hear about your aunt. I completely agree with you about cancer treatment. I am working on getting my master's in acupuncture which addresses issues like this. My prayers are with you during this difficult time.

I am in total agreement with you. If I had cancer, I would definitely go to a healing retreat somewhere and pray and try to heal it with God's medicine. It is a crime that all of the illnesses are just drugged and the body isn't even given a chance to try and heal itself. I will keep you in my prayers.

Amy, I'm so sorry for your loss. I have also lost several close relatives to cancer and I know how painful it can be to see someone you love go through that. I agree with you though, that there has to be much better, more natural ways to deal with cancer than pumping the body full of poisonous toxins. I hope someday soon the medical professionals will open their minds to alternative, gentler forms of treatment. Again, I am so very sorry for your loss and you and your family will be in my prayers.

I'm sorry for the loss of your aunt! My mom has cancer, and also isn't interested in pursuing anything natural. She instead chose chemo, radiation, and surgery. It's sad. She'll never be the same. Maybe if the symptoms return, she'll be more open to natural healing. It's hard to support someone hurting themselves.

I am very sorry for your loss. Cancer is a horrible thing to go through. I hope that your Aunt has found peace and that you can have peace with the memories of times that you shared with her.

Sorry for your loss. Just so you know, I had a friend with cancer and she DID try the alternative treatments and still lost her battle. So I don't believe at this point there IS a cure for cancer.

I'm so sorry you are hurting. But don't be mad at the 'medical establishment' for your aunt's death. That would be like blaming your bank because your business went under.

In all truth much more money(much of it government money) is spent on research of cancer drugs and cancer treatments than on natural remedies - whether that is a good thing is up for debate, of course.

This is the main issue that I, and anyone working in medicine has. There is tried and true research to support current treatment and the research for natural treatments falls INCREDIBLY short. I would not feel comfortable advocating natural treatments, especially of this magnitude - life and death are at stake, in a case such as this.

I do believe natural remedies have a place in society. I use a chiropractor weekly and have a D.O. for my primary care physician. But issues of life and death - research is all that matters.

When I was a child I had friend who's older sister had leukemia (which is treated with very high success now). She wasn't doing well and her parents sent her to a homeopathic center in Mexico, where she died a rather painful death. If she was going to die the least that could be done is pain management.

Again, I am very sorry for your loss but I think your anger is misdirected.

To those who said they do not beleive there is a cure for cancer or that there is more science supporting convetioanl treatments, you have a lot of research to do.

Firstly there is no science at all that can show any real benefit of any conventional cancer treatment, all studies are done by the manufacturers of the drugs and setup in such a way that even diet coke would be "proven" to cure cancer. All independant studies show very little or not benefit whatsoever, at best there is a few months in extra survival time. Even with all the falsifications, only 3% of cancer patients are "cured" by conventional medicine, but their frauds don't end there. Their definition of "cure" means surviving 5 years, so if you die at 5 years and 2 weeks, you're entered in their records as having been "cured" event hough you died of the disease they claim you were cured of.

By addressing the cause of cancer (poor diet, stress, toxins, nutritional deficiencies), the cure (real cure) rate is around 90% compared to a 3% 5 year survival with the fraudulent and murderous conventional "treatments" that have no purpose other than to make unimaginable profits at the cost of millions of lives.

Also, to the one who said she didnt beleive there is a cure for cancer because someone she knew used an alternative and died: There are not only quacks in conventional medicine, many alternative doctors are quacks also (although in conventional doctors 99.99% are quacks [their "education" teaches them nothing but quackery], in alternative I assume less than 5% are quacks).

The way to cure cancer is not by taking drugs or supplements, it is by eliminating the cause of the disease (poor diet, stress, dehydration, excess toxins, nutritional deficiencies, etc.). When you address all those causes, your body will cure itself of cancer.

Hi
I am so sorry. I lost my aunt a year ago from prob. cancer related illness. I also suggested natural healing at the time to some, but I think she was too far gone anyway. It is true though medicine these days just blankets over general cures. Each body is so delicate and there is so much we do not know. The touch of anyone can be really healing. I know I feel better just when someone is with me when I'm sick. I don't know a ton about it but natural healing can be just as bad, there have been many whom have tried this option and not make it. My aunt did chemo, recovered but passed about ten years later. If she denied chemo, she may not have made it at all and wouldn't have had those extra 10 years. Its hard for anyone to say, unless we continue to study science and the body. I have lost many people recently and in some ways I do feel it was their time as the say. I think their best qualities leave behind an amazing presence, which you will find binding to your own life. I hope Peace and love be with you and your family.

I probably know EXACTLY how you feel with this. I went through it with my mother. Fortunately in the end she DID go for natural healing, at the Hippocrates Health Institute, but unfortunately, her body had already been irreprably damaged, in some ways...
She got lightheaded one night in her treatment, and blacked out for a second, hitting her head hard on a table then on a hard tiled floor.
It caused hemmorhaging in her brain, and her kidneys failed trying to deal with all the detox from years of chemo and drugs, then she slipped into a coma, and passed away. Not before saying *I Love You* to me tho...
She came to me in a dream a week later...telling me how proud of me she was, and that she was moving on, and very happy too!
Its hard, watching people you love not take care of themselves, and be put in the hands of an industry that has been brainwashed, and out of fear, kills people with the treatments that are supposed to help!
My whole life now is dedicated to educating, and helping people heal.
Its my lifes work.

*Big hugs and abundant blessings of Healing energy*

Just one last thing...one of the most important things Im learning, is that, you cant force people to change, and you cant take away their fear or years of brainwashing. You can only extend a helping, loving hand, and its up to them whether or not to take it.

Blessed Be

I completely sympathize with your situation. I lost my 40 year old sister on Dec. 26th from terminal cancer - she was diagnosed in August last year. She was in denial and believed that the chemo was going to give her another year or two. The doctors and other family members allowed her to believe this too. After the chemo, she went downhill so quickly. I really wish she would have avoided the chemo and lived her life for those last 6-months the way she would have wanted to live, but unfortunately you can't tell people how to die. It is very difficult to watch a loved one die from cancer.

I really hope you are able to find peace with her death and you are able to enlighten and educate others on alternative treatments.
