A Natural Treatment For Cancer
Finding reliable information about a natural treatment for cancer requires a lot of careful research. This is not because there are so few available, but because there are so many. Furthermore, your research efforts will be complicated by what I call the “hidden agenda” of some sources of information. I know this from first hand experience. Cancer treatment is one of the most controversial topics within the field of healthcare, and the battle lines have not shifted significantly in the last 100 years.
First of all, why would you want a natural treatment for cancer? Don’t the mainstream medical treatments work effectively? Well, that depends on whom you choose to believe. According to mainstream medical sources, cancer is a disease that is not yet fully understood, and, to date cannot be cured. It can, however, be “managed” by some combination of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, especially if detected early and treated promptly.
Alternative health researchers tell a much different story, however. They say that the current authorized treatments are not only ineffective, they are often dangerous. For example, Prof. Hardin Jones, Ph.D. asserts, “My studies have proved conclusively that untreated cancer victims live up to four times longer than treated individuals. If one has cancer and opts to do nothing at all, he will live longer and feel better than if he undergoes radiation, chemotherapy or surgery, other than when used in immediate life-threatening situations.” (1956 Transactions of the N.Y. Academy of Medical Sciences, vol. 6.)
I told you this is a controversial subject, especially for those who face the choice of which treatment to undergo. So, here is something to consider. What treatment do you think an oncologist would choose for his or her own personal treatment? Researchers at McGill Cancer Center (Canada) surveyed 118 doctors, all experts on lung cancer, to determine the level of trust they had in the therapies that they were recommending for their patients. For the survey, the doctors were told to imagine that they themselves had been diagnosed with lung cancer. They were asked which of the six current experimental therapies they would choose.
Sixty-four of the seventy-nine doctors who returned the survey (+75%) said that they would not consent to undergo any treatment containing cis-platinum, which is one of the common chemotherapy drugs they use on their patients. Furthermore, fifty-eight of the respondents believed that all of the experimental therapies mentioned in the survey were not acceptable because of their ineffectiveness and the elevated level of toxicity of chemotherapy. (Reported by Philip Day in his book, Cancer: Why We’re Still Dying To Know The Truth, Credence Publications, 2000)
What do these doctors know that they are not telling their patients? Perhaps they have done their own research and discovered the same thing that Dr. Allen Levin learned. “The majority of the cancer patients in this country die because of chemotherapy, which does not cure breast, colon or lung cancer. This has been documented for over a decade and nevertheless doctors still utilize chemotherapy to fight these tumors.” (The Healing of Cancer by Allen Levin, MD, UCSF, Marcus Books, 1990).
If the standard protocols are in fact dangerous to your health, what options do you have? Well fortunately, today, because of the Internet, you can find a great deal of information that had been suppressed for many years. You can now learn about the lives of many brave pioneers in the field of medicine, who explored alternatives outside the mainstream, industry funded confines, and discovered natural treatments and effective cures for cancer.
However, I must warn you that you will need to dig deep to get the real story, because many of these men, and women, have been censured and discredited because their work poses a threat to the pharmaceutical industry’s patented treatments. In fact, in deciding upon any treatment for cancer, you’ll need to sort the facts from the hype on both sides.
Some of the most effective natural cancer treatments are based on the research of Otto Warburg, who won the Nobel Prize in 1931 for his groundbreaking discovery of the role of oxygen in curing cancer. He is quoted as saying in his lectures, “All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen – a rule without exception.” He also warned, “Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous.”
This breakthrough greatly expanded the field of oxygen therapy that goes back to the early nineteenth century. However, proponents of oxygen therapy face many obstacles to providing this effective treatment for cancer in the US. The biggest obstacle is the restrictive control of the medical profession, that insists on prohibitively expensive clinical trials before any therapy is approved. Of course every proposed therapy needs to be evaluated carefully. However, the costs of the currently required trials, which can amount to hundreds of millions of dollars, ensure that only patented pharmaceutical treatments will ever receive the necessary funding for approval.
For this reason, you need to look to countries that allow more freedom in healthcare choices to discover how oxygen therapies are being used with great success. For example, “At Hospital Santa Monica (in Mexico) we have pioneered in the administration of hydrogen peroxide to treat cancer and other conditions. Our doctors have administered over 40,000 infusions of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) intravenously and have treated thousands of patients with oral doses. Other clinics offering alternative cancer treatment are now using hydrogen peroxide routinely, and some physicians in the U.S. are experimenting with it.” (Alternatives In Cancer Therapy, by Ross Pelton, Ph.D.)
For those who must choose a cancer treatment within a restrictive regulatory environment, the good news is that some forms of oxygen therapy can be self administered at home without the need for a prescription. There are sources of information that can provide guidance and support for those who choose to explore this well documented, and time tested, natural treatment for cancer.
