I get emails every day from people asking me advice about cancer, treatment, and getting healthy. And much to the shock of many, I have mentioned that I would not have the same cancer treatment if I were to go back in time and do it all again. With what I know now, I would not have done chemotherapy or surgery to combat breast cancer. And I’m thrilled that I turned down radiation when presented with that option. What I would have done instead is, have my toxic root canal removed, switch to a more plant-based, organic diet, and start taking the proper supplements in order to balance my body’s chemistry.
I can already feel a lot of people say, “Oh my God! That’s a terrible idea! Doctors know what they’re doing; you have to trust them!” And here is my explanation of why I feel the way I do.
Let’s start with another example currently happening in the world, Super Weeds. According to the University of Nebraska Agriculture Biosafety Weed Science Department, “A super weed, as it has been suggested by the popular press, is a weed that has become resistant to a particular herbicide…Weeds have developed resistance to herbicides as early as the 1950s, long before herbicide-resistant biotech crops were on the market. It is possible that the application of herbicides to biotech crops could increase populations of herbicide-resistant weeds.”
What that is saying, and what we are now hearing in the news is, we are creating weeds that resist chemicals designed to kill them. Instead of dying, they are becoming Super Weeds. It is not a sustainable way to control weeds in food crops.
Here is another example, Super Bugs. You’ve heard of that right? According to the National Institute of Health, “In recent decades, antibiotics have been losing their punch against some types of bacteria. In fact, certain bacteria are now unbeatable with today’s medicines. Sadly, the way we’ve been using antibiotics is helping to create new drug-resistant “superbugs.”Superbugs are strains of bacteria that are resistant to several types of antibiotics. Each year these drug-resistant bacteria infect more than 2 million people nationwide and kill at least 23,000, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Drug-resistant forms of tuberculosis, gonorrhea, and staph infections are just a few of the dangers we now face.”
What this is saying, and what we are now hearing in the news is, we are creating bacteria that resist chemicals designed to kill them. Instead of dying, they are becoming Super Bugs. It is not a sustainable way to control bacteria in the body.
So, now we discuss cancer. Science has always focused on killing cancer by force, just like killing weeds and bacteria. We are prescribed poison to kill fast growing cancer cells, and then we burn the cells with radiation. Does it kill them? Yes, most of the time. But there are more than one type of cancer cell in a tumor, and process does not stop when the fast cells are killed.
Cancer patients do their treatment, think they are done, and they return to their regularly scheduled programming (assuming they survive the treatment). In the background, unbeknownst to the cancer patient, two things are happening. One, those slow-growing Cancer Stem Cells that weren’t targeted with Chemotherapy or Radiation are still hanging around. They are smart and cunning, and have the ability to self-renew and alter their DNA to be resistant to the chemicals and radiation thrown at it.
Second, the cancer patient’s body is now in a weakened condition, with a compromised immune system. If their body chemistry was inadequately balanced prior to treatment, allowing cancer to grow in the first place, then that has worsened the condition by poisoning and burning their body. It is even harder now for the body to fight off any recurrence of cancer, especially the now resistant tumors.
And consider this. If a person is treated with chemotherapy and radiation for cancer, then that means the doctor is throwing the best thing he has in his arsenal at cancer. Let’s say it kills all the fast growing cells and life returns to normal. When the Cancer Stem Cells that remain start creating their resistant tumor, and the cancer patient returns a year later with resistant cancer that has now spread, the doctor no longer has the best thing in his arsenal to use anymore. The cancer is now resistant to that treatment. So what’s next?… the second best treatment he has to give. And the cycle continues, with cancer eventually winning, because they are more resistant, and the treatments are less and less effective. It’s a death spiral.
So how do we combat the Super Weeds, the Super Bugs, and the Super Tumors? We do it with what Nature gave us. Everything we have to win is already all around us. Organic farmers do not have resistant weeds. And doctors are learning natural ways to combat resistant bacteria. For example, they have already found that Cannabis oil successfully treats and cures MRSA. And scientists are currently trying to find ways to combat Cancer Stem Cells. But there is nothing yet. Doctors don’t have the best treatments to address cancer. Science doesn’t have the answer.
Not only that, but there are natural ways to gently heal from cancer. There are ways to rid the body of the toxins that began cancer, and ways to build the immune system to fight it naturally. If history has shown us anything, it’s that the more we try to control and force something, the harder and stronger it will fight back. Eventually, the scale tips and we will lose the fight. The only way to succeed is through understanding how and why things happen, and finding a way to peacefully solve the problems.
