Chemotherapy in many cases knocks back infection (# 1 cause of cancer) and alters the test results for a more positive outlook. However, it does tremendous damage to the overall condition of the body and this is something you must look at, and work at overcoming, if you do decide to do chemotherapy.
Statistics are not good on the treatment rate for long term survival and here is why. This information is taken from the sheet that was provided by the National Naval Medical Center to a chemotherapy patient. Chemotherapy for malignancies poses significant potential risks, some of which are well defined and relatively common. Bone marrow depression with the resulting development of anemia (low red count) on occasion requiring transfusion, low white count (immune response) resulting in a predisposition to infection and low platelet count (blood clotting) resulting in abnormal bleeding among the most common side effects. Such side effects occur in the vast majority of the drugs and at times may be life threatening. Other common side effects are nausea, vomiting, hair loss, sterility and the development of a secondary malignancy. Some of the Drugs used:
BLEOMYCIN- lung damage, fever, shock, allergic reactions,skin rashes, nausea, vomiting, hair loss.

There are plenty more drugs used…you have the idea.
This form of treatment is in complete opposition to the natural medicine approach. It is obvious that the traditional medical system in this country needs some serious alterations in its approach to healing malignancies. The first thing they had better realize is that by toxifying the body and ruining vital organs with these drugs, they are never going to find a cure. The mainstream medical system in this country is literally torturing people, doing irreparable long term damage, all for a quick fix on a test to show immediate improvement, so they can say they are helping and cash in on the huge profits that are reaped from medical expenses.
I have spoken to thousands of people over the years who have been treated by conventional medicine using chemotherapy and radiation, and even though they had been told after these treatments that they were in complete remission (according to their tests) within a year or two the cancer was back, but this time ravaging a different area of the body. The medical field does not openly address this connection and calls it a different cancer so as not to upset their statistical numbers for remissions. For instance, your thyroid cancer was cured, but now you have liver cancer. The truth is the cancer cells were never gone from the body and the cancer went systemic in many cases due to the toxic drugs. Also, radiation toxicity is a known cause of cancer and it is simply insane to use radiation in an attempt to cure mutating cancer cells. It ruins healthy cells.
I have always been outspoken with my views and since I am a direct descendant of Horace Greeley (editor of the New York Times and famous for “Go West Young Man go West”), I guess I get it honestly as history shows he was very outspoken and liked to print his views. Freedom of expression has always been cherished in the United States. My lineage is constantly testing it!
It is my opinion that the chemical therapies and radiation treatments should be the LAST therapy that you should consider, not the first. Natural medicine does help in many cases, not all, but many do and with the testing that is available for you from your doctors,you can utilize both. Give the natural medicine a try for a month or two and have the tests run again. If there are no changes, then keep at it. Don’t be intimidated into unnecessary surgery and chemotherapy if your tests are holding or getting better. If your doctor will not go along with you on this, then get a new doctor! Natural medicine will not cause the damage that the chemical therapies do, and it is much harder to get your body to respond after you have had all these toxic drugs.
If you have survived chemotherapy it is important that you NOW work diligently to clean out your liver and kidneys, restore the balance of nutrition and strengthen your heart. This can all be done safely with natural supplements. 4-HERB tea is a wonderful liver cleansing product, Asparagus Extract – super for the kidneys and spleen, COQ10 enzyme for the heart, daily natural vitamins and good antioxidants and immune system boosters like Beta Glucans are very important to help with any free radical damage you may have.
It is also important that you work at getting rid of any systemic yeast infection you may have due to the use of chemotherapy’s. I have documented systemic fungal infections in 100% of all cancer patients I have seen and in my opinion, if you have had chemotherapy or large rounds of any antibiotics, you need to detox for fungals. For instance, everyone knows that the use of antibiotics can cause a woman to have a vaginal yeast infection. Men, get the infection too, it just doesn’t come out of the body, which makes it really worse for men. Why the fungal infections? Two reasons: One, the antibiotic kills off the natural fungal fighting flora in the body, and two, the antibiotics are made from fungals. Penicillin is a mold, remember?

4 different doctors – all prescription drugs. How do you think you would feel on all these for life? How can you assist a body in rebalancing and finding a cure, when this many drugs are being ingested everyday? You can’t. Medical doctors are making people into drug addicts for life. It not only costs you dearly in financial areas, but it costs you in the long run with your health. These drugs are not cures, they are drugs designed to suppress symptoms. Each drug also comes with a long list of contraindications and side effects as well.
A DRUG FREE AMERICA. It is my hope that someday we will truly see an end to this insane drugging of our citizens, but it really all starts with you and your willingness to take control of your life. Take responsibility for yourself, your actions and your health. You are responsible for your health and you can control what happens to you. You are not a victim of random disease that mysteriously just manifests. There is a cause for every ailment and there is a cure, but it is up to you to search out the cause that has contributed to your ill health. Many times it is simple. Overeating, the sin of gluttony, is responsible for so much suffering and illness. In my opinion it ranks number one in contributing to failing organs, diabetes, heart disease and cancers.
Many ailments, especially cancers can be caused by the use of toxic pesticides, garden fungicides, and other environmental poisons like polyurethane paints and many cosmetics. Toxic chemicals added to your foods, food dyes, MSG, Aspartame and hundreds of other additives all contribute to failing health. Are you still spraying your lawns with these carcinogenic agents? Are you dying your hair with products that carry warning labels about possible blindness? Are you poisoning yourself and your home with toxic termite sprays? Are you using tampons that warn they may cause Toxic Shock Syndrome? Are you eating foods that carry ingredient labels of chemicals you can’t even pronounce? Then who is to blame for your illness? You are. You bought and used them. Simple. You have to learn to stop poisoning yourself and find alternatives that are safe for you and your environment if you want to remain healthy and drug free.
You cannot rely on any government assurance of safety, as they have lied to protect industrial profits. DDT, Thalidomide, leaded paints, now banned pesticides, radiation testing, ad nauseum… were all approved at one time as completely safe.
