If you were to judge by television advertising and news reports, it would seem that the”war on cancer” is all but won. What are the weapons being heralded? Drugs, research, tests and exams. They miss the point. Really. That also misses the point. Can it be “avoidance” if you call 911 when you come home and watch smoke billowing from all of your windows?
Do we just live with a carpe diem philosophy and await your doctor to tell us we have a bulge in our breast or a bloated nodular prostate? Is the cause of cancer a deficiency of one of the newest cancer drugs? Is the cause of cancer really unknown, requiring unlimited research? First, allow me to put to rest the propaganda that the war has been won. Since President Nixon declared the war (1971) and after over 200 billion dollars are spent on research (remember, one billion is a million million), more Americans will die of cancer in the next 14 months than have died in all U.S.
Where are the protest marches? Soon, cancer will overtake heart disease as the number one killer. Decades ago, early in the war, there have been some dramatic successes for example with Hodgkin’s disease and some types of childhood leukemia. There can be little doubt that debunking (surgical removal) of cancers brings advantages. But the big killers like colorectal, lung, breast and prostate cancer remain as threatening as ever. Survival gains are measured primarily in extra months (not years) added to life, not in cures.
The placebo effect is by and large ignored. A proportion of people may experience remissions spontaneously and from simple lifestyle adjustments, but the cancer treatment is always credited with the treatment. Investigations, “Placebo Learning: The Placebo Effect as a Conditioned Response,” 1985; 2(1):23. O’Regan B, et al. 1993. Spontaneous Remission: An Annotated Bibliography. Sausalito, CA. Talbot M. 1991. The Holographic Universe. New York. Harper Collins Publishers. Statistics can always be massaged to make the result desired. This practice is rampant in cancer research.
Animal models (euphemism for actual living and feeling caged critters being tortured by the millions) don’t prove effectiveness across species boundaries to individuals. Neither do laboratory cell lines. That’s why all of the “breakthroughs” based on tumor shrinkage never pan out. For-profit drug companies and National Cancer Institute grant-based research dismiss metastases (the spreading cells of cancer throughout the body) in their favorable reports. Twelve new “improved” drugs introduced in Europe between 1995 and 2000 were no better than the drugs they replaced. But the prices were higher, in one case by a factor of 350 times.
Let’s understand it
One new “revolutionary” drug, Erbitux(TM), found to “shrink” tumors but not extend the lives of patients at all costs $2,400 a week. Avastin(TM), another expensive chemotherapeutic, by the ideal calculation, extended the lives of 400 colorectal patients by 4.7 months. Tamoxifin(TM) is demonstrated to be effective in reducing breast cancer. Are these results worth the financial devastation and miserable life that chemotherapy, radiation and surgery impose? Is that the best way to invest one’s remaining days? If such treatment does add a few months, are those few months actually worth the poking, prodding, pain, unrelenting nausea, disfiguring, destruction of the immune system and increased susceptibility to other diseases?
In the face of a cancer diagnosis most people just throw up their hands in terror and surrender to the traditional cancer treatment death procedure. The feeling is that something has to be done, and, since “doctors know best,” one must begin the “fight” by following the advice of the physician. But fighting doesn’t mean surrendering to the will of another man that has their own private agenda and narrowed field of view dictated by the club they belong to. That misses the point.
You have to do something.
- Prevention means fixing your life at this time so you are living in tune with your design. Cancer is, quite simply, the reaction of cells exposed long enough to an environment they aren’t designed for. The genetic device loses its bearings, becomes insane, if you will, and regresses to embryonic infancy and just starts multiplying recklessly. What is the correct environment? It’s that air, food, water and lifestyle you are genetically designed for. The correct healthy preventive living context is encapsulated from the Wysong Optimal Health Program(TM).
- If you get cancer, do not panic. 1 advice. Learn. Gather as much information as possible from all sources, not just what the medical institution supplies. We try to collect such information for you in The Wysong Directory of Alternative Resources.
- Consider what’s happened in your life which has led to the disease. It’s caused, it doesn’t just happen.
- You take charge of your body and you make the choices. Determine to set right what is wrong and get it done. Taking control is vital to not feeling like a helpless victim and sinking into hopeless despair – a certain mindset to accelerate the disease along.
- Think long and hard before submitting to unproven cancer treatments. If the doctor can’t prove effectiveness (at least prove you will be better off using the treatment than without) and if you’re not inclined to take the possibility of all of the contraindications, then do not submit as you think that it is “all that can be accomplished.” It isn’t.
All good things in life are tough. In our contemporary world, decent health requires effort and attention. Preventing and reversing disease also takes effort – your own effort. Begin today to take control of your health and be the best you can be. Most chronic degenerative diseases have long latency periods, the time between when the disease starts and it manifests in overt symptoms. Most everyone reading this has this disorder brewing in at this very moment. So take advantage of this window of opportunity and give your body a chance by living the life you were created to live. That won’t only prevent disease from gaining a foothold, but reverse disease that’s incubating within.
