Modern Medicine Versus Nature in Treating Cancer
In contrast to at least 6000 years of the practice of natural medicine, Western
medicine treats the body as a collection of parts instead of as a synergistic
organism. When it comes to treating broken bones and injured body parts,
mainstream Western medicine is unequaled. When this same approach is used to
treat illness and disease - fixing or repairing the parts where the symptoms of
underlying illnesses manifest themselves, modern medicine fails miserably.
In the instance of cancer, instead of addressing the causes of cancer - toxins
and a weakened immune system - we see instead treatments that either slash, burn
or poison away the tumors and cancer cells, which further weakens an immune
system cancer has already defeated and only worsens the conditions that led to
cancer to begin with.
Even if initially successful at getting rid of existing cancer cells and tumors,
the end result is a weakened body which may have major organ damage and which is
more susceptible to the reappearance of the original cancer, as well as other
forms of cancer and diseases.
Profit plays a huge role in Western medicine and, because nature cannot be
patented, there is no profit in conducting studies on natural remedies for
cancer and illness. In fact, if studies were to prove the effectiveness of
natural alternatives and those alternatives were to be approved for use in
treating cancer and other illnesses, the result would be to admit cheaper, safer
and more effective competition into a fiercely guarded market.
Instead, such alternatives are heavily suppressed, discredited and passed off as
"snake oil" and "voodoo medicine". A better plan for maintaining and increasing
profit is to continue to bring new drugs into the market place which treat only
symptoms and have serious side effects that lead to still more drugs in a never
ending cycle. A good model for profit, but a horrible one for humanity.
We now have over 15,000 patented and approved drugs, 95 percent of which have
significant side effects. What exactly has this mountain of medicine actually
cured in the past half century? Certainly not cancer!
By far the most effective way to beat and avoid cancer is to remove the causes
of cancer and to make your body as inhospitable to cancer and illness as
possible. To understand what steps we should and can take, we should understand
what we know about cancer:
We know that:
The development of cancer indicates that our natural first line of defense,
our immune system, has been defeated and that the presence of either toxins and
pathogens, or some imbalance in our bodies have led to the development of cancer
and enabled it to gain an upper hand.
