At the same time that I was listening to the final video in Series Two of “The Truth About Cancer”, an email arrived with the “alarming findings” that a drug that is commonly recommended for patients with chemotherapy induced anemia actually causes cancer.
The article ends by saying the cancer causing treatment for anemia in cancer patients is “still a viable alternative” as long as patients are told that the drug causes cancer.
For a doctor to reason that a cancer causing treatment is a viable recommendation for someone with cancer is almost too confusing to wrap your mind around.
The Hippocratic Oath is not “It’s o.k. to do harm if you first inform your patient.”
The Truth About Cancer series gives viable alternatives for cancer treatments that are based in natural remedies. Most of the interviews are with medical and health professionals but there are many interviews with patients who share their stories of struggling through chemo and radiation before turning to natural healing.
It’s absolutely riveting to hear these patients describe the life changes that their cancer diagnosis brought, the debilitating effects of chemo and radiation, their great joy in living and and conquering cancer when they switched to natural healing, and their immense appreciation for the healers who helped them back to health.
Many of the natural treatments include Chinese herbs that have a long history of building your own immune system in the treatment of severe disease.
Cordyseps Mushroom: Dong Chong
Angelica: Dong Gui
Astragalus: Huang Qi
And all of the natural treatment programs include a diet rich in foods that aid the digestive system in the form of pre-biotics, probiotics, and detoxing agents.
Dark Greens: Parsley, kale, dandelion greens
Fruits: apples, lime, lemon, carrots
Root Vegetables: beets, burdock root, parsnips, ginger
Herbs: garlic, curcumin, cinnamon
It’s fascinating to listen to the wealth of knowledge that is readily available for natural treatments, and it’s easy to incorporate these immune system treatments into your daily life before you get a devastating diagnosis!
