One-in-three people in the USA will develop cancer in their lifetime, which will soon become one-in-two. If you do not have cancer or know someone who does, prepare yourself. The biggest problem with a cancer diagnosis is fear. Being prepared dramatically reduces the level of fear.
There are several essential books on holistic treatment of cancer. Anyone with cancer, or with loved ones with cancer, should read these. Some of these books are still in print, but all are available through inter-library loan.
= “Cancer Therapy: The Results of Fifty Cases” by Max Gerson, MD focuses on his dietary cure.
= “Cancer: A New Breakthrough,” and “The Conquest of Cancer,” are both by Virginia Livingston, MD. Her clinic in California treats people with cancer by making a treatment using the patient’s tumor.
= A British physician and surgeon wrote “The Topic of Cancer,” a valuable and truly remarkable work.
= “One Answer to Cancer” by William Kelley, DDS, discusses the use of high doses of pancreatic enzymes, first proven as a cancer cure by John Beard, MD, a few years before Madame Curie started the use of x-radiation as a therapy. Once the hospitals invested millions of dollars in expensive equipment, Beard’s inexpensive cure had to be abandoned to make the hospitals profitable.
= “Metabolic Ecology: A Way to Win the Cancer War” by Fred Rohe is an update of Dr. Kelley’s book.
In dealing with cancer, it is helpful to have the guidance of a physician or other person who knows holistic treatments in order to see the big picture and keep the treatment on track. It is possible to train your physician if she is willing to study these texts.
Most naturopathic practitioners treating people with chronic illnesses, such as cancer, seek to create balance in the body. They treat individual people, not the cancer diagnosis. Tumors are a result of an imbalanced condition in the body. When the imbalance is corrected, the tumor is no longer needed by the body, so it may either be walled off by the body, or it disappears.
Unfortunately much of orthodox conventional allopathic medicine damages the body more and makes the body more imbalanced. That is why most people undergoing conventional treatment for advanced cancers have miserable deaths. By the time a person has developed advanced cancer, their body is already in a weakened state. Conventional treatment weakens it further.
Holistic practitioners may still have a chance at creating balance, but it becomes increasingly difficult. Maintaining hope and the desire to live can allow a sick person to overcome tremendous odds.
Note: We are a Naturopathic office in Washington State; treating cancer is outside of our scope of practice.
