RE THINKING CANCER
What is cancer
-Cancer is a class of disease identified by its uncontrollable cell growth.
-There are over 100 different types of cancer.
-Cancer harms the body when damaged cells divide uncontrollable and form a mass or lumps. called cancer tumors
Cancer gets more dangerous when:
a. The cancer cells move throughout the body by ways of the blood or lymph, destroying healthy tissues in the process.
b. The cancer cell manages to divide and makes its own blood vessels to feed itself.
-When the cancer spreads to different parts of the body it is a serious condition and is difficult to treat.
However if a way is found to stop the cancer cells from sticking to a new site by interfering with its cell growth, the disease may be halted and stop the growth of secondary tumors .
-A normal body cell is programmed to live for a specific period of time and then dies. In the case of cancer the programmed gets mixed up some how and cells keep on multiplying and do not die .
What causes cancer
Genes: Carcinogens: Other Factors:
Genes: a . Cancer can be the result of a genetic predisposition. It is inherited from family members
b. DNA :The DNA type may be damaged. There are 4 types of cells genes programming
1. tells cells when not to divide. 2. Tells cell when to divide
3. Tells cells when to repair itself. 4.Tells cells when to kill itself
Cancer occurs during the cell genes mutation making the cell unable to correct the DNA damage.
2. Carcinogens: These are classes of substances that are responsible for damaging the cell’s DNA. Example tobacco ,arsenic, X-ray, sun, compounds from car exhaust,and formaldehyde etc. They create. Free radicals which damage cells.
3. Other Factors: Infectious agents: such as
a. Infectious Viruses. hepatitis B, ( Liver cancer)
human-papipllomavirus, (cervical cancer)
b. Infectious bacteria; Helicobacter- pylori. (Stomach cancer)
c. Infectious Parasites : Liver flukes (cancer of the bile duct)
d. Immune suppressants : Any thing that weakens the immune HIV, stress etc.
TYPES Of TREATMENT FOR CANCER
Surgery. Radiation: Chemotherapy : Immune therapy: Hormone therapy:
A surgery : Removal of lump or organ by cutting. (New)Use of sniff knife to and remove affected tissues
Radiation: Destroys cell with high radiation -damage good one too
Chemotherapy Is a class of drugs used to tell the DNA in to cells to kill itself. Sometime they kills other good cells too
Immune therapy: strengthen the system to fight the invading cancer cells.this entails Cleaning and building the immune system with nutrition, herbs , enema, and hydrotherapy , giving it a fighting chance. This is the one most naturalist use
Hormone therapy: Given to alter the body’s hormone and is mostly used for hormone driven cancers like prostrate, breast and uterine cancers
Genes Therapy: This is the method that replaces damage genes with a good copy of the cell. Aimed at making the cancer attack itself and die
Do These Therapies Work? There are many factors that can go for or against.
1-It is dependent on the stage of the cancer,
2-How many organ it has invaded
3-The age of the individual
4-The health status, of the individual
5-Other personal characteristics.(positive or negative attitudes plays a great part)
5- Individual’s finances and family support
As a believer in the perfect blood, perfect health philosophy.
And like many other herbalist I would want to suggest immune therapy.
However sometimes one method alone does not work effectively. Physical ,psychological and financial support is crucial for the individual fighting cancer,
Whichever method one chooses to use it rest entirely with the individual Immune therapy is slow and expensive and it rest with the suffer to stick to the treatment protocols. One has to be discipline and have lots of guts.
However of all the therapies. its the one that does the least damage to other cells
What does immune therapy entails? just to mention a few
Body detoxification –Cleansing of blood , lymph and colon
Eating 90% raw foods
Drinking lots of herb tea, and herbal chemo
Drinking lots of green juices,
Taking lots of nutritional supplements
Taking at least 3 enema weekly,
Doing at least 2 steam bath weekly,
Taking salt glow bath,
Removing flesh from your diet forever
Removing dairy products and other things you dearly loved from your diet
Lots and lots of prayer and faith; enough not to break when all others around
you have lost all faith in the treatment.
Yes the cost is high but it can extend your life with all your body organs and mind intact. Are willing to pay that price to live. Others have ,so why can’t you.?
