Treating Cancer Holistically
Dr Eva Hill, who practiced natural medicine in curing cancer in New Zealand, wrote a wonderful little book entitled “Why Be Scared Of Cancer? (1979, G.W. Moore Ltd, Auckland, N.Z.)
This title, “WHY BE SCARED OF CANCER’, says it all: It IS possible to cure yourself of cancer using alternative and natural methods, just as Dr Eva Hill, Dr Max Gerson, Dr Ann Wigmore, Walter Last, and many other doctors have affirmed.
If you have cancer, and you want to recover, it is important to understand that a lifestyle change is going to be in order. Cancer does not develop in people without a cause. Degenerative diseases such as cancer usually take many years to develop to the stage where they can be diagnosed.
Merrilyn’s new book is available on Amazon:
If you have cancer, or any other degenerative disease, it can sometimes be very difficult to find a practitioner who will help you to treat the disease by alternative methods. This is one of many posts I have put up on the possible alternative treatments for cancer, the aim being to disseminate as much information as possible, so that people might get some idea about the different therapies which have worked for some people. Of course, you must judge for yourself, with the help of a qualified health practitioner, what course of action you need to take.
First and foremost, a positive attitude is necessary in order to beat any disease. Destructive habits must all be ruled out with the decision made that you will do everything necessary to bring your body back to a state of health. This means time for meditation and reflection, and light exercise too.
Your whole lifestyle must be examined: It is very important to have enough relaxation time, yoga nidra practice, meditation time, to rejuvenate the body’s defence systems and to give you the time to reflect on the positive aspects of getting well, and the value of your life.
Doctors are generally not allowed to use natural methods for treating cancer: They often feel that they might be targeted by their piers, and the drug companies, if they try anything unorthodox. If they try anything that is not approved by the drug companies or the FDA and their equivalents, then they can get into deep trouble. Max Finkel says “Yet in the face of continued failure on the part of orthodox medicine in the area of cancer, great efforts are made to insure that no medical doctor or natural therapist is able to use any treatment which is not approved by the medical hierarchy.”
Drug companies who profit from selling their drugs are at the top of the pecking order, unfortunately.
Just look at the recent controversy over using Intravenous Vitamin C Treatment for Swine Flu: There are some wonderful medical specialists in the field, but these doctors are given a very low profile. Vitamin C is a PROVEN remedy for swine flu, yet our hospitals here in New Zealand will not endorse the use of simple Vitamin C therapy, which has CURED people of swine flu. Why such resistance? Because the drug companies do not want Vitamin C, a relatively cheap and uncomplicated remedy, to interfere with their monopoly on their costly medicines. Vitamin C therapy is known to inhibiit cancer and other degenerative disease as well, so it is a threat to drug companies. There will be no money in Vitamin C therapy – unless they manage to patent Vitamin C and claim it for their own, when it will become another costly treatment.
Naturopaths and other alternative healers are at the bottom of this pecking order: By law, they are not supposed to treat people with cancer, along with people suffering transmittable diseases and a few other conditions. They are meant to refer people to doctors if they have cancer. Naturopaths and other alternative healers will be damned for life with the possible threat of a law suit if they are treating a patient and the patient dies. This is simply not fair: Doctors treat people every day, every week, who die because of failed orthodox treatments. Which they have authorized. Yet they get off scott free, at least in New Zealand. People simply accept that you might die while undergoing orthodox treatment for cancer.
Even in America, doctors are protected to a greater extent, when their treatments fail, whereas natural practitioners have a history of being hounded by the FDA and the drug companies, even when they are obviously having a great deal of success. But God forbid if someone dies whilst under the care of a holistic healer. He will be blamed, for sure.
Dr Max Gerson, who treated people in America originally, was forced out of America by the FDA and drug companies. These authorities did not like his practice of healing people naturally, without the use of the expensive drugs and treatments which the drug companies produced for sale. Dr Max Gerson went, eventually, to Mexico, where he set up a clinic which successfully treated hundreds of people over the time he operated there. Of course, not everybody recovered, but many did. He maintained that the quality of life was improved for many of his patients, because they had not been subjected to damaging and debilitating radiation and chemotherapy: Even if they did not recover, they were spared the extra suffering often caused by these ‘therapies’.
Max Gerson’s book tells about 50 cases which he outlines for the benefit of the reader. The book by Maurice Finkel, published by Health Science Press, Bradford, Holsworthy, N. Devon, England, 1978, gives a precis of the Gerson therapy and therapies of other famous practitioners.
There are many different alternative approaches to curing cancer. Usually, a combination of different techniques will be used to combat the cancer. For instance, the Gerson therapy does not just use diet alone: It uses an intensive detoxification method which includes castor oil taken every second day, with enemas taken on a daily basis. This is so that the poisons in the body, all those things which have accumulated and brought about a cancerous condition, can be eliminated very quickly.
Generally speaking, people who have developed secondary growths do not have a good prognosis using orthodox treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation. Maurice Finkel says in his preface to his book “Fresh Hope In Cancer”:
“Once internal metastes become established, there is little traditional medicine can do to prevent death by cancer within a five year period. In America, fantastic sums of money are spent in cancer research and have been spent for many years not with no real hope evolving for cancer victims as a result of such expenditure. In America it costs a fabulous amount of money each year for cancer victims to die from this disease.”
So what can you do?…….First, understand that It is important to detoxify as QUICKLY as you can, – One has to try to beat the cancer, and stop it growing for a start. This is why DETOXIFICATION is so essential. One must hurry up the elimination of poisons from the body so that the cancer, which thrives on toxic material, gets stunted and starved.
This is why castor oil is used in many cancer therapies, why enemas are used on a daily basis to begin with, and why large amounts of raw food and juices are taken: These all have a cleansing effect on the body and help to eliminate poisons quickly. Two tablespoons of castor oil are taken every second day in the Gerson method for treating cancer and other degenerative disease.
A special cleansing diet must be adopted: The other important reason for eating huge amounts of raw food is that the body requires large amounts of nutrients and enzymes in order to overcome the cancer and stop it growing. A large salad should be eaten at every meal, plus the juices of fruits and vegetables. A glass of vegetable juice, freshly pressed, should be taken every hour through the day.
