was the title of a recent instructive success story book written by Jessica Richards who, after being diagnosed with cancer, decided to follow her instincts and logic and use natural healing methods rather than allow herself to be funneled down the conventional treatment route.
This article is written, not to dissuade patients away from conventional diagnosis or treatment, but to offer a wider range of possibilities that can be used in conjunction with treatment, or as a preventative, so that you no longer have to live in fear of cancer.
The topic of cancer is a very thorny subject, one could say a taboo subject that no health professional, apart from those serving the pharmaceutical industry is allowed to have an opinion on or give information about in mainstream media. So much so, the November 2013 special cancer edition of “What Doctors Don’t Tell You” magazine was sought to be banned by Dr Simon Singh and the pharma-serving Nightingale collaboration. One could however argue, that if the conventional treatments were so great, then why has the incidence of cancer multiplied over the last 40 year from one in 10 in the 1970’s to one in three, rising to one in two today? The official line is that we are living longer – but frankly the statistics do not stack up!
As a result, most of the population are unaware or mistrustful of the many viable alternatives to surgery, radiation and chemotherapy that have been discovered and developed by doctors, medical researchers and natural therapists. I would like to summarise many of the discoveries and findings into a simple insight about why we and animals kept in captivity or as pets succumb to cancer:
Too many toxins (oxidants) in our body create an acidic, anaerobic environment in certain parts of our body, in which normal cells cannot survive. What then happens is that the body goes into ‘plan B’ survival mode, by creating cancer cells that are non-differentiated stem cells that can survive the lack of oxygen, which have a special protein on them, instructing the immune system: “Do not eliminate me, I have a special dispensation to access all areas and am not subject to the normal rules and regulations that cells have to abide be in this body, because I have to help this body survive in these toxic circumstances”. Like the ‘A’ team – they may have unconventional methods but they are actually the Good Guys!
The conventional interpretation of this activity is that the DNA is faulty and that is the disease to be eliminated. Let me remind you, however, all that DNA is the cells software enabling it to adapt to changing circumstances – nature never makes mistakes, it only adapts. When you know the full story behind cancer, then it all makes sense.
So a more effective way to tackle cancer is not to remove the resultant tumour as this is only an indicator that there is something wrong with the body’s internal environment (see Are you treating the cause of your illness) but by improving that environment in order to makes us better. This can be done in the following ways:
1. Through an alkalising diet, cutting out red meat, reducing other meats, wheat and diary primarily and introducing raw fruit and veg. In the case of cats and dogs the primary cause of cancer is manufactured pet foods which contain padding agent such as cereals, which their digestive system cannot tolerate. Instead give them raw foods.
Dr Simonichi, an oncologist in Italy scanned cancer patients and discovered that the localised area where tumours were growing were too acidic. He then developed a therapy using baking soda to alkalise the body.
2. Eliminate chemicals from the environment and diet.
3. Most importantly for humans, is resolving mental and emotional traumas.
Dr Hamer, a German doctor contracted cancer after the death of his son. He made investigations and discovered a lesion in the brain that corresponds to the cancer. He found that after resolving his issue that he should have saved his son’s life by talking to his wife, the cancer went into remission. He then treated 7,000 cancer patients in this way, as the theory he proved was that all cancer patients had had some kind of trauma, but did not discuss it with anyone in order to resolve it. Out of the 7000 patients, 6,000 are still alive after 20 years of the treatment. When the mind is ‘chewing over’ unfinished business the ‘mental food’ i.e. thoughts remain undigested and just like undigested food in the digestive tract, it will ferment and start to be a source of toxicity. Toxic thoughts lead to a toxic body. This is also where homeopathy can help.
The work that I do with patients is to help them resolve past traumas with a remedy that matches how they see things. By doing so, we can start to see things from a better viewpoint which enables us to resolve our internal conflicts.
One of the typical scenarios in cancer patients is feeling hurt, aggrieved and indignant by past events and people, including in childhood. Here are some of the many symptoms I would use to find the remedy that would resolve this way of being:
Ailments from Grief
Dwelling on past disagreeable occurrences
Ailments from wounded honour
Ailments from anger with silent grief
Ailments from anger with indignation
Hatred of those who have offended them
When the patient takes the remedy that best matches their internal dialogue, it helps them get out of this state and they can start to see the bigger picture more clearly. They are able to see things from the other persons point of view, in particular the perpetrator of their wounds. It will become more obvious that in those situations actions were done by others out of ignorance, usually due to their conditioning, rather wanting to willfully do harm to them.
