If you or someone you know and love is faced with cancer or another life threatening or debilitating illness, and the information shared here and on our cancer page connects with you, please reach out to us through our contact page to learn more about how to implement this strategy as our family did.
It’s been said that the most powerful weapons that a cancer patient possesses in their fight are information and an open mind. Unfortunately, we along with nearly all new patients diagnosed with cancer didn’t have a chance to use these weapons. I think back to sitting in the oncologist’s office when my wife was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in October of 2012, and in a neurologist’s office for my son’s glioma (brain tumor) diagnosis in July of 2013, and having the fear of God put into us. There is no time for gathering information and keeping an open mind to alternative treatments when dealing with the medical establishement. Their answer is “immediately start our prescribed treatment plan, or certain death awaits”. After the initial shock of hearing this, we immediately began treatment as nearly everyone who has the shock of hearing “you have cancer” does.
That treatment plan will consist of either chemotherapy, surgery, or radiation, but most likely a combination of more than one of these options. Throughout my wife’s brutal battle including all three of these and two prolonged hospital stays, followed by watching my son nearly lose his life to chemotherapy and then losing half of his eyesight from surgery, the fear of losing them led to hundreds of hours researching these three chosen modalities of the cancer industry in great detail. Here’s what I’ve gathered after doing so.
First, I believe that the cancer industry’s understanding of the disease and how to attack it is misguided. The proliferation of cancer in the body is not something to “be attacked”, but a warning sign put out by the body that something is wrong and needs to be addressed. It’s typically a build up of toxins after a severe drop in our immune systems. This can be brought on by a variety of issues including continually eating the wrong foods, using products with known carcinogens in them, lack of proper hydration, and a number of other environmental factors, but the most important and overlooked factor is stress in ones life. In the majority of cancer patients, something stressful was happening in their lives in the months and years leading up to their diagnosis that needs to be addressed and changed if it is to be beaten and stay in remission.
