Recently many people I know have been affected by cancer, either has having gotten a diagnosis or having a loved one be diagnosed with cancer. Many of those have since passed away and it causes me much sadness for those left behind. When a friend of mine posted a sign-up link to a nine part internet documentary on cancer cures around the world I just had to sign up to view them. The documentary both validated opinions I already held and provided justification for those opinions. Now, I am aware that the majority, if not all, of oncologist using traditional treatments for cancer view alternative treatments as quackery. However, with the number of testimonials that I listened to, alternatives do exist that are more effective with fewer side effects than the traditional chemotherapy and radiation treatments (2) currently considered the standard of care for treating cancer.
One of the treatments that impressed me most is a viral treatment (1) for cancer that is fully approved by the government of Lithuania. The virus, Rigvir, targets just the cancer cells to destroy them without harming healthy cells. The efficacy of this treatment is quite high even in cases of stage 4 cancers.
There are a number of other therapies around the world and some that are even promoted as self-administered treatments. Almost all of the natural therapies include a detoxification of the body (3) and boosting the immune system primarily through diet.(4) Most natural treatments also include exercise and many use some method of increasing oxygen to the cells. Cancer cell thrive in an anaerobic environment and increased oxygen is harmful to cancer cells whereas healthy cells thrive in an oxygen rich environment. (5)
Traditional cancer treatment, primarily chemotherapy and radiation are the only treatments covered by insurance companies in the US and most countries around the world follow the same traditional therapies. State sponsored treatment almost always only covers the traditional treatment and not alternative treatments. Alternative treatments, regardless of efficacy are suppressed by the drug companies, government agencies and medical industry. Why? Because cancer is big business and a cure that is all natural isn’t profitable. (6)
I have thought for a long time that the traditional methods of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy are worse than the disease. When my father was going to have a surgery on his heart the doctor opened his chest and closed him back up without doing the surgery. He was given two years at most to live. He lived six years. There was no official diagnosis of cancer, however, the things that happened when he died were not indicative of the official cause of death, atherosclerosis (7), rather were more indicative of cancer metastasis throughout the body. Just prior to death many of his major organs ruptured and he expired when his lungs filled with blood a second time after the doctors had drained them the first time. That sounded more like lung cancer to me, the fact my dad smoked all his life and for most of his life had a truckers diet from many greasy spoon cafes, convinced me that his actual cause of death was really cancer. Because he died in the hospital, no autopsy was done and he would not have wanted one done. If the doctor had officially diagnosed him with cancer and he had gone through the typical chemotherapy and radiation I’m sure he would not have lived as long as he did. I can’t prove any of that, but it is my opinion. Because of this, I decided for myself that should I ever get such a diagnosis I will not be subjecting myself to the traditional treatments that actually reduce quality of life (8) and may even shorten lifespan somewhat. I may opt for alternative treatment.
What I should do now is change my lifestyle. I know what I do and have done to my body that increases my risk of getting cancer and other diseases as well. It is a matter of making up my mind and doing those things that reduce my risk, even now, after so many years of abuse through an unhealthy diet, failing to get enough exercise, and smoking for many years of my adult life.
With so many natural treatments for cancer and other diseases humanity should not be dependent upon the drug companies for treatments. A healthy lifestyle with a healthy diet, plenty of exercise, rest and relaxation we could improve the health, quality of life and length of life of most people. Please take time to do some research on your own. There is a lot of information available. Make up your own mind on the validity of what I’ve discussed and learn to live life to it’s fullest.
Blessings to all,
