I am fed up. We have a thief and a murderer running loose in our society and not many people are sincerely trying to stop it. It robs you of your dreams, your future, your passion, your dignity, your will and ultimately it kills. Its name is CANCER. Supposedly for many years now, “there is a cure just around the corner”, mainstream medicine says. But I and many others who grieve this devastating disease know all to well that that is just simply not true.
My beautiful angelic Mother had faith in that statement and in that system two years ago when she was diagnosed with breast cancer and today we sit and wait and pray (My family appreciates all prayers for her) that God has mercy as the cancer has metastasized and spread into the lymph, the blood, the liver, and the lungs and the best they can say now is, “Maybe three months, if your lucky”. It has nothing to do with luck! And I am 100% sure that their cure will not be coming around the corner anytime within that 3 months and probably not even in three years or three decades.
As I grieve for my precious Mother, my best friend, I find myself going through many emotions. Shock, disbelief, sympathy for her, and for us, intense love, anger at the system, yet serene peace when I hold her in my arms and thank God for each precious moment I have with her and as I lay my head on her heart to hear it beat as long as I possibly can I feel overwhelming heartache.
I think to myself, if only she had taken a different path and put her trust in her bodies own ability to heal, but their words froze her in fear and she complied to everything they asked her to do, while they earned over $200,000 dollars from her illness and now at the end they still want more and she is in such pain that she refuses all forms of treatment, allopathic and natural. Unfortunately her faith went to a system that grosses over a trillion dollars a year, prescribes over 2 billion dollars worth of medications per year, harms 1.4 million people a year to medical mistakes while killing approximately 186,000 of our precious loved ones. Is this truly the system to believe in I ask you? Due to circumstances in my Mothers case she unfortunately may be one of the 186,000 and I hear this quite frequently from others. This is criminal! But even more so, the companies that are allowed to produce toxic waste in our society called food should also be put to a stop. The garbage we eat on a daily basis sets us up for an early death.
Modern medicine is a business and many doctors and hospital administrators are business people. Not all but many. Finding a cure would put an end to hundreds of thousands of jobs throughout the world and humanity would rather sacrifice our loved ones than choose a new career.
The American Cancer Society has had trillions of dollars and all too many decades to find a cure. How is it that we are smart enough to put a man on the moon, invent high tech computers and machinery, clone a sheep, reattach limbs and many other amazing feats over the past few decades but we cannot heal a diseased body.
Oh but we can…but when we try to teach others how to do this our small voices and our efforts are squelched and hushed. “You are not real doctors; you are off the wall“. I have heard statements like this many times. Our forefather of medicine, hypocrites said “You do not have to be hurt to be healed”. He knew this but somewhere along the way men and women in white coats decided to play God. My life’s work is to teach what I know and let individuals take responsibility for their health while I support them through the healing process. I too suffered disease over 14 years ago and by the grace of God chose to heal naturally and I am a testament that rebuilding the body works.
I will fight against disease until the day I lay to rest. It is really so simple. Bring the body back to an alkaline PH state and you bring the body back to health. Cancer cannot live in an alkaline state; cancer is anaerobic and cannot live in oxygen. Over the course of one year every cell in our body is replaced and we have a completely new body and by giving it the right nutrients those new cells will stay strong, healthy and energized as the old cancer cells die off. Cancer is fed by sugar, yeast, vinegars, fermented foods and other foods so it CAN be starved out of the body while giving the body wonderful healing nutrients to survive and rebuild. The answer is to rebuild the immune system so that it can naturally destroy the cancer cells.
Each and everyone of us has cancer cells in our body, it is just whether or not our immune system is strong enough to fight against it or whether we happened to get tested and they found it. Many times in our lives we have the cancer but no significant symptoms and our immune system just took care of it for us. It is through the stresses of life and the toxicity in our world that our immunity is weakened and that is what needs strengthened.
Rather than aggressively going after the cancer by cutting, burning and pouring toxic chemicals into our loved ones we need to rebuild their immune system so the body will take care of the cancer on its own. People are too fearful of cancer and sadly, what we fear the most shows up in our life. We manifest what we think (positive or negative) and fear. Rebuilding does take some time but with lifestyle changes and proper health and wellness care our bodies can be free of cancer rather than in remission, which is a fearful place to be in if your a pending cancer survivor. That is a place of bondage. It is time for all of us to get FED (properly with nutrients) rather than get FED UP with cancer. Join the fight against cancer and for truth in healing and begin your journey into DISCOVERING WELLNESS.
When faced with the decision to start taking chemotherapy it is important that you understand the consequences of this decision. Chemotherapy is not a cure and has never been. If it was, the medical field would be shouting from the roof tops – Cancer cure!
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.
BUSULFAN: (Myleran) Bone Marrow suppression, lung damage, loss of appetite, weight loss, skin pigmentation, nausea, vomiting.
BCNU (Carmustine) – Bone marrow suppression, nausea,vomiting, liver damage, kidney damage.
CCNU (Lomustine) – Bone marrow suppression, nausea,vomiting, hair loss, renal damage, mouth soreness.
CIS-PLATIUM – Bone marrow suppression, severe nausea, vomiting, nerve damage, kidney damage, hearing loss.
CHORABUCIL (Leukerant) – Bone marrow suppression, lung damage, nausea.
CYCLOPHOSPHAMIDE (Cytoxan) – Bone marrow suppression, bladder damage, hair loss, lung and liver damage, sterility.
CYTARABINE – Bone marrow suppression, skin rash, fever, mouth ulcers, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and liver damage
DACARBAZINE (DTIC) – Bone marrow suppression, nausea, vomiting, flu like syndrome, liver damage, hair loss.
DACTINOMYCIN (Actinomycin) – Bone marrow suppression, nausea, ulcers, mouth ulcers, skin changes, vomiting.
DAUONOMYCIN (Daunorubicin) Bone marrow suppression, hair loss, heart damage, ulcers at injection site, mouth ulcers.
ETOPOSIDE (Vesesid/VP) – Bone marrow suppression, low blood pressure, allergic reactions, hair loss, abdominal pain.
FLUOROURACIL (5FU) – Bone marrow suppression, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, mouth ulcers, hair loss.
HYDROXYUREA (Hydrea) – Bone marrow suppression, nausea, vomiting, skin rashes, kidney damage.
L-ASPARAGINASE – Allergic reaction with shock, nerve damage, pancreas damage, bleeding, elevated blood sugar, vomiting.
MECHLORETHAMINE (Nitrogen Mustard) Bone marrow suppression,nausea, vomiting, hearing loss, skin ulcers.
METHOTREXATE – Bone marrow suppression, mouth ulcers, liver damage, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea.
MITHRAMYCIN – (Mithracin) – Bone marrow suppression, flushing, bleeding, nausea, vomiting, skin changes, liver damage, kidney damage, mouth ulcers, irritability and low calcium.
MITOXANTHRONE – (Novantrone) Bone marrow suppression,flushing, bleeding, nausea, heart damage, blue discoloration of skin and urine.
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?
DRUGS, DRUGS, and MORE DRUGS…I saw a client who was desperate for help. She was on the following medications:
Pro Cardia – high blood pressure, 60 mg, 2 X day
Mavic – 2 mg 1 X day
Fero Folic – 500 mg 1 X day
Mylan – Ranitidine – 150 mg -2 X day
Flextra DS – 500 mg for fibromyalgia
Duradrin – 1 X day
Relafen – 500 mg 1 – 2 times a day for pain in foot
Ziac – 10 mg, 1 daily
Glucophage – 500 mg, 2 – 3x day
Glipizide – 10 mg, 2 x day
Axid – 150 mg 1- 2 x day
Trazodone – 100 mg 1/3 tab – for depression!
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.
What is cancer? Cancer is essentially abnormal cell growth that is mutating and growing out of control. The mutation is caused by a vast array of pathogens and excessive toxicity invading and taking over the cells. A cancerous tumor grows, and its cells gradually invade and destroy other tissues. Cancerous cells can also travel through the blood stream and lymphatic system to other parts of the body where they form secondary tumors. Left unchecked it tends to over stress other functions in the body until death can be caused from:
A. Organ failure. i.e. The filters shut down.
B. Infection, i.e. pneumonia because the immune system is weakened.
C. Malnutrition, because the cancer shifts the host’s metabolism into high gear through inefficient use of fuel while also inducing a loss of appetite.
The only way to provide long-lasting relief in any disease is to reverse the basic cause of the disease. Cancer seems to be caused by a collection of lifestyle, environmental, and emotional factors that accumulate over many years. For example: Pathogens, toxic overload, distress, poor nutrition, lack of exercise and oxygenation of the tissues, and also blocked chi or life force.
Listed here are some very effective therapies and treatments for those who choose to use an alternative approach in healing.
1. Essiac 4-Herb Tea: Essiac is made from Sheep Sorrel which aids in the destruction of cancer cells. Slippery Elm, Turkish Rhubarb, and Burdock Root which are all blood purifiers. They stimulate the liver secretions to aid in elimination of toxic build up, and strengthen the vital organs with nutrients. This is the difference between chemical drug therapies and natural medicine. The chemical therapies and symptom therapies provide the body with absolutely NO nutrients to boost the immune system to help fight the disease. In addition, these four herbs also elevate the enzyme system, hormonal system, and the immune system.
2. Yew Tips:Have been proven through research in Mexico to be very helpful. Shown to have anti-cancer, anti-viral, ant-inflammatory and immune stimulant qualities. Research has found it to be particularly effective in breast, lung, prostate and ovarian cancer.
3. Asparagus Extract: Asparagus extract prevents the cancer from metastasizing (spreading) in the middle and late stages of the disease. It promotes white blood cell growth, which improves the bodies immune system, and also flushes and detoxifies the kidneys, which aids in the elimination of toxins.
4. Shark Cartilage: Shark Cartilage acts as an angiogenesis inhibitor which suppresses the development of new blood vessels. When these new blood vessels are created they carry blood and nourishment to the tumors and allow them to grow. Shark Cartilage prevents the blood vessels from forming, therefore starves the tumor and causes it to diminish. This should not however, be taken right after surgery because it can interfere with the mending process.
5.Colon And Intestinal Cleansing And Enhancing: This should be utilized if you are NOT having at least 2-3 normal bowel movements every day. THIS IS VITAL!!! Toxic waste can decay and cause irritation in the bowel structure for many years before it pollutes the entire body, in many instances it is where original pathogenic activity starts. Cleaning out the bowels will lower the re-absorption factor of toxins and will aid in assimilation of nutrients. YOU MUST RID THE BODY OF TOXINS TO REGAIN HEALTH. I recommend getting the colon cleaned out and working properly and cleansing out the mucus and debris caught in the creases and pockets of the intestines. This fecal matter can be caught in the intestines for years and begins fermentation and that is what leads to colon cancer. One needs to heal and tone the intestines and colon.
6. CoQ10 With Hawthorn: CoQ10 can prevent and reduce the spreading of cancer. It will improve aerobic metabolism. Improves immune functions and protects and strengthens the heart and cardiovascular system which is needed especially for those on chemotherapy or radiation treatments as both weaken and/or can blow out the heart muscle.
7. Anti-Oxidants: These will help fight off free radicals. Free radicals are atoms formed by exposure to radiation and toxic chemicals and they cause damage to the immune system, which in turn leads to disease. IN MY OPINION chemotherapy, radiation, and allopathic drugs are free radicals and can do much harm to the body and vital organs. If you choose to continue use of these treatments, you can still use them in conjunction with natural remedies with no harm. You will however, obtain better results from the natural therapies if you are not weakening the body and vital organs with allopathic methods. YOU are in charge of your own healing, so it is YOURchoice! I recommend you go with whatever your inner voice (intuition) tells you when making that choice. Listen carefully to your gut feelings.
8. proteolytic Enzymes: Enzymes are needed to aid the white blood cells and to clean up the debris from the blood system.They also have anti-inflammatory properties.
9. Maitake & Shiitake: These mushrooms prevent carcinogenesis. They inhibit the growth of cancerous tumors and aid in the activity of t-helper cells.
10. Nutrition: Nutrition is extremely important when fighting disease. A high protein (low animal protein) and vegetable diet with no sugar is necessary. Sugar has been proven to feed tumors and cancer cells and therefore accelerate growth. Avoiding sugar will selectively starve the cancer cells. The cancer is fueled by blood glucose and can be controlled by minimizing rises in blood sugar. Iron, salt, and omega 6 fats, such as corn oil are being studied and show that they too may also accelerate growth. Dairy products (except for plain yogurt), processed foods and white flour products should be avoided. Eat a diet that includes nuts, grains, seeds, brown rice, cruciferous, yellow and deep orange vegetables. Chickpeas, lentils, and red beans. Eat onions and garlic. Eat 10 raw almonds everyday or Apricot Kernals (natural source of laetrile, which is a natual cyanide that destroys cancer cells). Fresh beet, carrot, cabbage, and asparagus juice, also grape, black cherry and other dark colored fruit juices. Eat apples, cantaloupe, plums, purple grapes and cherries. Drink purified water ONLY (one-half your body weight in ounces a day to flush toxins out of the body). Use sea salt instead of table salt. Stevia instead of sugar, it is a natural alternative to sugar extracted from the Stevia Rebaudiana plant. Real butter instead of margarine. Eat whole wheat, rye, or oat bread instead of white. Eat amaranth, oat, and bran cereals. Avoid alcohol, caffeine and teas, except for herbal teas. Do not take iron supplements, the body naturally with-holds iron from cancer cells to inhibit their growth. Never eat hotdogs, lunchmeat, cured or smoked meats, these contain carcinogenics. Stay away from anything that contains nitrates, sulfates, food colorings and additives. Eat whole natural foods. Broiled fish three times a week if possible. Avoid micro-waving your food. Eat at least 50% raw foods daily. Always keep in mind, LIVE FOODS BRING LIFE, DEAD FOODS BRING DEATH!
11. GUA SHA TREATMENTS: Gua meaning to extract; Sha meaning toxins. This will stimulate the lymphatic system, the circulatory system, unblock stagnation and draw out toxicity and congestion from the body. THIS TREATMENT IS AMAZING for all dis-eases and ailments.
There are also therapies for healing associated illnesses such as infections, pneumonia, etc…, if this is the case you and your Naturopath should address these issues. Every cancer patient in my opinion should be treated for systemic yeast (Candidiasis) and also be put on a anti-parasitic formula. 85% of individuals with cancer are infested with both and both can be a precursor to cancer.
It is crucial that the filters in the body are working properly, therefore, you may need to do some cleansing. Our bodies have no other way to rid toxins except through the filters, i.e. liver, kidneys, lymph system, bowels and skin (our 3rd lung).
Environmental detoxing may also apply and need to be addressed. Therapeutic touch and gentle massage will aid in the healing process greatly and acupressurecan stimulate the flow of energy (chi). Live blood and dry layer cell analysis can give you an in-depth visual picture and report of which pathogens and toxins are impacting your health and what region of the body is critically stressed and diseased. Bach flower remedies and emotional release therapy can be used to address issues of depression, stress, anxiety, anger, etc… Finally, BREATHE DEEPLY!!! Feed your body as much oxygen as you can. Cancer is an anaerobic cell, fermenting rather than metabolizing food and living in the absence of oxygen. Cancer can arise from oxygen in a normal cell being replaced by fermented sugar in the cell. Cancer can also be over-developed yeast cells, in which sugar feeds yeast and cancer. Cancer has the ability to shrink when oxygenated.
Attitudes must be POSITIVE (your attitude and those who love and support you). Disease is often caused by emotions and those associated with cancer can be of deep hurt, long-standing resentments or anger and unresolved grief that has been bottled up for many years. You can change your reality, simply by changing your outlook and perspective. NEVER LOSE HOPE. NEVER LOSE FAITH. Dig deep into your soul, and release fear, hate, and anger and begin the path to forgiveness. Fear paralyzes, hate kills, and anger consumes. Life energy becomes restricted and renders us less effective when we are filled with these emotions. If you believe in God or a higher power, PRAY! Prayer can bring about miracles. Never underestimate the power of God (This is solely my opinion and my belief). Also DO NOT allow any doctor to tell you how long you have to live. DO NOT take on the belief system of another, they are not God and should not be allowed to play that role. This is where the countdown begins and your quality and quantity of life starts to deplete. DO NOT accept a death sentence. Believe in your own ability to heal. Believe in yourself. Love yourself!
If you have been diagnosed with any form of cancer, do not see it as a death sentence. See it, feel it and get acquainted with it and find out what it is telling you about your body physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. You have cancer at this point in your life for a reason and IT wants you to slow down and recognize what aspects of your life are not working for you while living the way that you have been up until this point. YOU have within you the power to reverse it! Fight back by loving yourself back to a healthy state and beginning your journey to DISCOVERING WELLNESS.
NOTE* This information was carefully written and intended for all people and all belief systems, you may personally not agree with all of its contents, i.e God, chi, harmful effects of allopathic medicine, etc…and that is ok. This is solely my opinion. Therapies and doses should only be used after consulting with a natural healthcare professional.
