There are millions of options and many natural and alternative therapies that are proven to be very effective. There are many treatments available that have been effectively used by many people with cancer, but not the one magic cure everybody has been lead to believe there is.
As a cancer survivor who now dedicates much of my time to giving cancer support, I am often asked if there is a definitive cure for cancer.
"There are millions of options and many natural and alternative therapies that are proven to be very effective. There are many treatments available that have been effectively used by many people with cancer, but not the one magic cure everybody has been lead to believe there is. Heal one step at a time. I used many complementary and alternative treatments for my stage 4 cancer and I am cancer free today."
An understanding and acceptance of the body-mind-spirit interconnection and the use of alternative, complementary, and integrative medicine all played vital roles in my healing from cancer. There is no magic formula that works every time for every cancer, but there are many treatment options to use.
Ironically, there are some medical experts and researchers today who feel the odds are great that the cure for cancer has already been discovered and lost because of the absurd extremes of much of modern civilization's way of testing out new drugs before they are allowed to be marketed. For instance, they say, if a cancer curing compound were found that would have worked in human beings, but when it gets tested in lab mice it doesn't work or does them harm, the regulatory bodies won't allow further development of that compound into a drug for people. This is exactly what some researchers believe has already happened.
But other researchers insist that cancer can be virtually cured and removed from society because it is really an unnatural manifestation. Ingredients in certain foods, poor lifestyle habits, and the use of tobacco and our toxic environment could all be done away with and cancer would just about completely disappear, they say. Given the fact that while it existed, cancer was extremely rare before the early 20th century in the developed world (some people have linked the beginning of its dramatic rise to greatly increased incidence of smoking and the use of hydrogenated vegetable oils in place of "fattening" butter), there seems to be a lot of merit in this argument, too.
Both arguments are likely to be right or largely right.
Among those health researchers and medical experts who regard the latter argument above to be the right one, they point to modern societal traits like synthetic toxins such as crop pesticides, high levels of pollutants, the wide array of new and high-level stresses that modern people are subjected to, food low in nutritional value but very high in refined sugars and Omega-6 fats, lifestyles that rob people of sufficient sleep, and areas of poor air quality as all contributing to the parabolic rise of incidences of cancer in the last 50 years. They would insist that if a person does the right things to alter their internal environment in such a way that they don't have a body that is conducive to the runaway growth of cancer cells, that person simply cannot get or sustain cancer.
These researchers also grow more and more frustrated with a medical care industry that insists cancer needs to be treated and defined in strictly "classical" and conventional medicine terms and is full of scientists who turn deaf ears on arguments for the mind-body-spirit matrix or any alternative treatments for cancer. The orthodox medical establishment insists cancer's beginnings in a person are largely a mystery, that one who doesn't get cancer is "just lucky", and a cure can only attempted once the signs of cancer have already manifested--and then there are no natural cancer treatments, they insist, but concoctions of potent synthesized drugs or radiation doses have to be used. Cancer prevention apart from not smoking or not getting too much direct exposure to the sun is out of the question to them.
Their efforts are bolstered by the ignorance of the general public which demands their kind of "cure" for cancer and thus creates a profitable market for their well-intentioned but largely delusional methods. Cancer speakers, and advocates around the world do what they do to try to get the public to demand something new and practice new ways of cancer prevention.
One instance of a new physical compound that people who are suffering from cancer should start demanding, because in research experiments it has been proven to be highly and dramatically effective, is Zeolite. This unique volcanic mineral is a powerful detoxifier, and it improves the alkalinity of the body (cancer patients have bodies that have become more acidic than they should be). Zeolite liquids and powders have also been shown to activate the P21 gene which signals a cancer cell to die.
The concerted use of alternative, complementary, and integrative medicine of physical, attitudinal, and mental natures is what we need to cure cancer.
