The Organ of Specific Cancer Treatments

Organ specific cancer treatments

Certain advanced cancer hospitals manage cancer in an organ specific way, and accordingly oncologists are reserved for treating cancers affecting specific organs only. Accordingly, oncologists have successfully treated breast cancer, head and neck cancer, gynecological cancer, orthopedic cancer, lung cancer, neuro cancer, and liver cancer.

Understanding each organ specific cancer and the treatment available for it

Breast Cancer

It is the commonest of cancers affecting women, and it is believed to be the cancer that has caused the most mortality among women next to lung cancer. The mortality has been the highest among women whose ages were between 45 and 55. Breast cancer is curable if it is diagnosed at an early stage, and if the necessary treatments are carried out immediately following its detection. Breast cancer is growth of breast cells in an uncontrolled manner.

Breast cancer diagnosis

Abnormal presence of a lump

This diagnosis can be carried out by the patient, and the doctor too looks for the presence of abnormally looking lumps through physical breast examinations. Other than a lump, the changes in the breast that doctors look forward to finding is skin dimpling, unusual changes in the size, and or shape of the breast, pulled in nipples as against it being pointed outward when normal, and discoloration of the breast’s skin.

Mammography

Radiologists use mammograms to seek out abnormalities in the breasts. Mammograms are x-ray photographs of the breast that are usually taken by keeping the breasts in a compressed position.

Ultrasound imaging of breasts

Ultrasound imaging is used to examine the breasts, and this technique of using sound waves helps in distinguishing whether a lump that has been noticed in a breast is either a cyst filled with fluid, or a solid one.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging, or MRI

The MRI of a breast is taken using a strong magnetic field. MRI of the breast becomes necessary in certain situations to properly diagnose breast cancer.

Biopsy

The biopsy of the breast becomes necessary when the oncologist has a strong suspicion of cancer being present. A core needle biopsy is performed on the suspect area of the breast to either confirm the disease, or rule it out.

The benefit of early breast cancer detection

Detection of breast cancer can be made at an early stage through screening. Screening refers to the various tests and examinations that are carried out on the breasts of a person to detect the disease at the earliest, even before the actual symptoms of the disease starts to show. Usually breast cancers that can be felt and detected are cancers that have grown larger in size and that which in usual cases has spread to regions outside the breast. The treatment in such cases is very complex. Breast cancers can be treated successfully if it is detected very early, and before the actual cancer symptoms starts to show.

Breast cancer treatment

Breast cancer is treated either through local treatment or systemic treatment.

Local treatment of breast cancer involves removal, destruction, or controlling the growth of cancerous cells in the breast. Local treatment by surgery is also known by the names mastectomy, and it is also referred to as lumpectomy. This is a breast preserving therapy. The other local treatment is the use of radiation therapy. Radiation therapy involves use of a high energy radiation beam to destroy the cancer cells. Advanced equipment like LINAC helps in focusing the radiation beam on to the cancer cells, and minimizes, or avoids causing damage to the surrounding healthy cells.

Systemic treatment becomes necessary if the breast cancer has spread to other parts of the body. This treatment is therefore used to control and destroy cancer cells across the body. The various therapies that are used in this treatment include chemotherapy, hormone therapy, and biological therapy.

Chemotherapy involves the use of drugs to kill or control cancer cells. Hormone therapy involves use of certain drugs that inhibit production of certain hormones in the body, like estrogen, which can aid in the revival of cancerous breast cells that manage to remain in the body post the surgery of the breast. Biological therapy involves use of the body’s immune system in fighting and destroying cancerous cells.

Thus cancer hospitals that offer breast cancer treatments are equipped with a robust team of breast surgeons, plastic surgeons, medical oncologists and other associated staff, they have with them advanced machinery for diagnosis and treatment, and they also have the facilities of advanced ICUs for apt patient management and recovery.

Lung cancer

Lung cancer is associated with uncontrolled growth of cells in either one, or both of the lungs. These cells do not develop into healthy lung tissue, but rather becomes abnormal cells which further continue to divide forming lumps of tissues which are identified as tumors.

Diagnosis

The symptom that is commonly associated with lung cancer is shortness of breath and presence of wheezing. Certain other symptoms like chest pain, fatigue, appetite loss, presence of blood in the sputum while coughing, persistent cough, unanticipated loss of weight, and coughing out blood, are also associated with lung cancer. Presence of these symptoms together with reports from many other procedures will be used by physicians in diagnosing the presence or absence of lung cancer. Imaging techniques like X-Rays of chest, bronchoscopy, MRI, CT, and PET scans, are also used to diagnose lung cancer. Further, the patient is also subject to a physical examination by the physician, and an analysis of the patient’s sputum is also made. All these examinations and procedures will reveal the presence of lung cancer, and also the location of the tumor, and also information about the presence or absence of the disease anywhere else in the body.

Lung cancer treatment

There are many factors which influence lung cancer treatment, and the factors on which lung cancer treatment is dependent on includes, the type of the cancer, the stage or how far the cancer has spread, the age of the patient, his or her health status, and many other personal characteristics of the patient. There is no particular treatment for lung cancer, and patients often receive treatment which is a combination of palliative care and multiple therapies. The foremost of lung cancer treatment therapies include surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. The patient will also be exposed to therapies that have been recently developed which include gene therapy, hormone therapy, and also immunotherapy.

The treating team comprises of radiation oncologists, thoracic surgeons, medical oncologists, onco medical social workers, and so forth.

Orthopedic cancer

Orthopedic cancer involves musculoskeletal tumors that affect the pelvis, limbs, and spine. Orthopedic cancerous tumors that are usually seen in children and adolescents are Ewings sarcoma and Osteosarcoma. Cancerous tumors that are more common among adults are chondrosarcoma, metastasis, and multiple myeloma. These tumors are considered to be rare, and the exact cause that leads to their formation has remained a mystery till date.

Patients who are affected with these tumors have persistent pain in their back or limbs, and this pain will not subside with medications or rest. Paralysis and hand or foot weaknesses are symptoms patients with spine tumors usually present with.

Orthopedic cancer diagnosis

Clinical examination by a specialist and further investigations becomes necessary to diagnose orthopedic cancer; mere physical examinations of bone and soft tissue swellings will never reveal the presence of orthopedic cancerous tumor. The investigations that are usually carried out include X-Ray, MRI, PET, CT, and Bone scan. Biopsy is necessary to confirm the diagnosis.

Orthopedic cancer treatment

Tumors like Ewings sarcoma and Osteosarcoma needs a combination of treatment therapies which starts with chemotherapy, which is then followed by surgery, and eventually involves radiotherapy. Surgical treatments become necessary to treat benign tumors, and tumors like chondrosarcoma. The quality of life of patients suffering from bone metastasis can be considerably improved by subjecting them to palliative surgeries. Procedures are customized in accordance with patients when limbs or arms need to be saved from amputation. Cancer hospitals make the necessary provisions for prosthetic substitutions when amputation surgeries become necessary.

There are no known methods to prevent the occurrence of musculoskeletal tumors, and these tumors are considerably rare. Since prevention is ruled out, early detection alone can lead to proper treatment. Further, advancements in technology in the recent times has brought forward the possibility of liberating patients from definite limb or arm amputations when they are affected with bone cancers. But, amputation can be avoided only when the cancer is detected at an early stage. Numerous patients have been treated and were rehabilitated, and they are now in a position to lead a normal life; these patients have benefited from the advancements made in technology, which has made complex surgeries simpler.

Cancer hospitals use advanced technologies for soft tissue sarcoma tumor excisions including Brachytherapy, and also use of LINAC for external radiation therapy.

The orthopedic cancer treatment team of cancer hospitals comprises of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, physiotherapists, and so forth.

Patients seeking treatment for musculoskeletal tumors can also benefit from numerous services including, limb salvaging surgery while being treated for malignant tumors, benign bone tumor management, pelvic and spine tumor surgery, treatment for skin malignancy, soft tissue sarcoma treatment, and so forth.

Head and Neck Cancer

Head and Neck Cancer are cancers affecting the Upper Aero Digestive Tract, or UADT, cancers that affect the region between the collar-bone and the brain, and cancers that originate at glands like thyroid and parotid.

Diagnosis

A good physical examination under the hands of a competent oncologist will reveal the presence of head and neck cancer. Biopsy of the affected region will give an accurate confirmation. Lumps are explored by means of a Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology, or FNAC.

Head and Neck cancer treatment

The head and neck area is associated with the personality of a person. Further, the various important functional areas, which also involve a person’s senses like sight, smell, auditory, taste, speech, and swallowing, are present in this region. Hence, the treatment of cancers affecting the head and neck area needs to be a balanced one, the treatment should not compromise the aesthetics, or the functions of the sensory organs, but concurrently the treatment should be effective in containing the cancer. Thus, the most advanced of head and neck cancer treatments that are carried out is aimed at preserving the functions of the sensory organs and simultaneously controlling cancer in an effective way. Either surgery or radiation therapy is sufficient during the early stages of the onset of head and neck cancer. But, surgery combined with radiation therapy becomes necessary during the advanced stages of head and neck cancer. Chemotherapy too is used along with radiotherapy to enhance the potentiality of radiotherapy.

Further, head and neck cancer treatments also benefits from the advancements made in the domain of reconstructive surgery. These advancements has made it possible to preserve the functionality of vital sensory organs, and thereby improving the quality of life of the affected individual. Some of the surgery advancements that have aided head and neck cancer treatments include micro vascular tissue transfer, functional neck surgery, jaw preserving surgery, and so forth. Further, advanced machinery for external radiotherapy like LINACs has made it possible to deliver high intensity radiations in a precise way to tumors that are deep-seated, and also sparing vital anatomy in the vicinity of the tumor. LINACs have greatly reduced the treatment duration too.

The additional conservative services that a patient can also benefit from while being treated for head and neck cancer includes head and neck surgery, cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, preservation of voice, restoration of speech, micro-vascular regeneration, speech rehabilitation, faciomaxillary surgery, prosthodontic treatments, and so forth.

Liver Cancer

All cancers and tumors affecting the liver have come to be known as liver cancer, and this includes primary liver tumors, and secondary liver tumors also. Primary liver tumors are liver tumors that emanate within the liver, and secondary liver tumors are tumors that have spread to the liver from other cancer affected sites of the body.

Liver cancer diagnosis

Imaging techniques including ultrasound, PET, and, or CT scan is required. Biopsy will or will not be required to establish liver cancer.

Liver cancer treatment

When liver cancer is detected in the early stage, it is usually treated by surgically removing the tumor, or destroying the tumor cells using targeted chemotherapy, which is also known as TACE, or by liver transplantation. There are numerous other factors which also determines the treatment that needs to be undertaken including the condition of the liver, the size of the liver, location, tumor count, the age of the affected person, and the person’s overall health. Further, the risks and the benefits associated with a particular mode of treatment is also dependent on the extension the tumor has achieved, the condition of the liver, and also the health condition of the affected person. In the usual cases, a treatment plan is tailor-made in accordance with the condition of the person being treated.

Patients undergoing liver cancer treatment at advanced cancer hospitals have the benefit of receiving chemotherapy, surgery, and radiotherapy under one roof. Further, these cancer hospitals have liver transplantation programs, and in accordance with these programs certain patients affected with liver cancer have the benefit of undergoing a liver transplant at the hospital they are being treated.

The cancer hospitals treating liver cancer have doctors in their team from various disciplines including hepatobiliary surgery, radiology, oncology, hepatology, pathology, and so forth. The entire team is well-trained and experienced in liver cancer management, and they work in unison at solving complex liver cancer problems.

Gynecological Cancer

Cancers affecting the female reproductive organs have been grouped under gynecological cancer. The cancers included under gynecological cancer include cervical cancer, vaginal cancer, ovarian cancer, vulvar cancer, and uterian cancer.

Gynecological cancer diagnosis

The symptoms that are usually associated with gynecological cancer includes vaginal bleeding that is not normal, swelling or bloating that is persistent in the abdominal region, gain in weight or loss that is questionable, persistent diarrhea, or constipation. Gynecological cancer is diagnosed only after thorough gynecological and clinical examinations. Imaging techniques like ultrasound, CT, and PET/CT scans are also used for accurate diagnosis. Biopsy may or may not be used in the diagnosis procedure.

Gynecological cancer treatment

The treatment is based on the extent of the spread of the cancer, and also on the type of cancer present. The treatment is usually a combination of surgery, chemotherapy, and may or may not use radiotherapy. Surgery involves excision of cancerous cells from the affected area. Chemotherapy is the use of drugs to stop, or control the growth of cancer cells in the affected area. The drugs are administered into the body either in the form of pills, or through Intra Venous, or IV injections. Radiotherapy involves the use of high energy radiation beams to kill the cancer cells, or preventing them from spreading further.

Gynecological cancer treatment which spares fertility have been successfully carried out. Ovarian choriocarcinoma which was in stage IV has been successfully treated by sparing fertility using a combination of surgery and chemotherapy.

The services and treatments patients can expect for Gynecological cancer from cancer hospitals includes

· Diagnostic services like hysteroscopy, biopsy, laproscopy, colposcopy, and so forth,

· Ultra-radical and radical surgeries like Wertheim’s hysterectomy, radical vagino-abdominal surgery, and Japanese radical surgery for cancer at stage II B, are carried out to treat uterine cervix cancer. Para-aortic and pelvic lymphadenectomy are also carried out as part of the procedure.

· Intraperitoneal chemotherapy,

· Cytoreductive surgery for ovarian tumor management is done, and this also involves hysterectomy, omentectomy, lymphadenectomy, and diaphragmatic stripping. Intraperitoneal chemotherapy is offered to patients requiring chemotherapy, and this has a good survival rate.

· Typel hysterecotmy is used in treating endometrial cancer. Pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy is also used. Progesterone therapy in high doses in undertaken to treat certain cases when fertility sparing becomes necessary.

· Radical vulvectomy, partial vaginectomy, and also partial urethrectomy with dissection of groin node is carried out in the treatment of vulval cancer.

· Surgical treatments are done to treat vaginal cancer and also fallopian tube cancers.

· Chemotherapy and hysterectomy is used in treatment of choriocarcinoma. Fertility sparing tumor excisions are also carried out in certain cases.

· Neo-vagina creation, urethral stricture treatment, vaginal dryness treatment, and so forth

· Adjuvant radiotherapy, and chemotherapy too is provided on a patient basis, as need be.

Neuro Cancer

Tumors affecting the brain, spinal cord, and the peripheral nerves are treated as Neuro cancers. Abnormal growth of cells in the brain leads to brain tumor. Likewise, abnormal cell growth in the spinal cord, and peripheral nerves leads to spinal cord tumors and peripheral nerve tumors, respectively.

Symptoms

Blurred vision, neurological defects, vomiting, persistent headaches, seizures, and so forth, are symptoms associated with brain tumors.

Back pain, disturbances in the bowels and bladder, pain in the limbs and arms, weakness associated with limbs and arms, and so forth are some of the symptoms associated with spinal cord cancer.

Swelling, feeling of weakness, pain, and so forth are symptoms associated with peripheral nerve tumors.

Neuro cancer diagnosis and treatment

Imaging techniques including CT, MRI, PET/CT scans are used for diagnosis.

The foremost technique of tackling neuro cancers is surgery. Tumors of the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves are surgically removed. A thorough histological diagnosis can be achieved of the tumor, as a result of this surgical intervention. Further, physical removal of the tumor also relieves the affected person of the cancer symptoms. The surgery also paves the way for a brisk recovery. The surgery can be followed by other treatment methods such as chemotherapy, and radiotherapy.

Any person affected with neuro cancer becomes eligible for neuro cancer treatment. But, early detection of neuro cancer helps annihilate the disease entirely. Tumors of the brain, spinal cord, or the peripheral nerves need immediate treatment, and if they are left untreated they can become life threatening at a later date. With advancements in technology, neuro cancer treatment has become significantly safe and manageable. Further, the treatment time, and thereby the required days of stay in the hospital has been considerably reduced.

Advanced cancer hospitals use numerous top-notch techniques in the treatment of neuro cancers including stem cell therapy, cerebral micro dialysis, and so forth. Advanced cancer hospitals have the required technology to conduct microneurosurgery, neuro surgery using navigation, neuro surgery that is guided by endoscopy, neuro surgery that is guided by imagery, and so forth.

Further, advanced cancer hospitals are also equipped with advanced top-notch operation theaters that are designed to handle neuro cancer cases, they also have advanced neuro ICUs and other associated infrastructure that helps a neuro cancer patient recover in a safe and monitored environment.

Cancer Treatment Without Drugs

Cancer is undoubtedly the disease that the majority of people fear the most.

Are you one of those?

Why?

Is it because a friend or a loved one has cancer or has died of cancer after a debilitating period of excruciating pain, loss of dignity, unbelievable suffering and finally a premature death?

Is it because so many people have one or other type of cancer and that the death rate of cancer patients is so high?

Or is it because most of us don’t understand the true facts about cancer and all of the treatment options available to us to successfully treat cancer, or the true survival rates of these various options?

Confusion and Misinformation

It’s all of these things, but one other thing that is for sure, there is a lot of confusion and misinformation around all aspects of cancer and specifically cancer treatments and survival rates.

I hope that some of the facts in this short article will help you to minimise the confusion and give you some guidance on what causes cancer, how you can prevent getting it as well as understanding the various credible and proven natural treatment options that are available to you.

So where do you start?

“Awareness and Knowledge” are the best medicine. The first thing you need to do is take control of your own healthcare and that of your family. Then you need to become fully aware of all the cancer treatment options available to you. Only once you have this knowledge are you empowered to make the best treatment choice when you or a family member gets cancer. This should include both the devastating “modern medicine” treatments that most people are forced into and the highly successful alternative treatments that very few people are aware of. Only then will you be able to make an informed decision and realise that Cancer does NOT have to be a “Death Sentence.”

What is Cancer?

Lets start by defining cancer and looking at some of the statistics and the inevitable possibility of you or a family member getting cancer.

Cancer is a generic term for a large group of diseases that can affect any part of the body and is often referred to as “malignant tumours”. The main feature of cancer is the rapid creation of abnormal cells that grow beyond their usual boundaries, forming malignant tumours. These tumours invariably invade adjoining parts of the body and metastasise (spread) to other organs, which is usually the cause of death.

There are about 10.9 million new incidences of cancer every year worldwide and about 6.7 million deaths a year from cancer. There is still an upward trend in most of the western countries where people live a “Modern Lifestyle”, with 1 in 4 adults expected to get some form of cancer in their lifetime.

Are you or one of your loved ones a cancer candidate?

We all have Cancer!

Did you know that every one of us has cancer cells in our body, but most of us aren’t even aware of it. That is because of the bodies amazing Immune System that continuously patrols our body and eliminates foreign invaders, including the newly forming cancer cells. However if the immune system gets compromised in any way, then it can’t control the cancer cells and they become established usually resulting in one form of cancer or another. Often the cancer may have been developing over many years before it is identified.

However, many doctors use this threat of urgency to rush you into a specific cancer treatment regimen of their choice, which may not be the best treatment for you. Unfortunately, most of us are unaware of the various treatment options available and blindly trust our doctors, oncologists and specialists to make the choice for us.

Regrettably, a very good friend of mine did that when his wife was diagnosed with Liver Cancer, and she suffered devastating pain, uncontrollable nausea, loss of hair and other bodily functions, and eventually died prematurely from the chemotherapy. He knows now that he could have prevented that and she could have regained her health and wellness if he had been aware of the available “natural cancer treatments”.

Once you have the “Awareness and Knowledge” about Cancer and the available treatments then you can participate in that decision, after all it’s YOUR LIFE.

So what is the main reason for our Immune Systems being compromised?

The “Modern Lifestyles” most of us live!

Main Cause of Cancer

Cancer is a “Modern Lifestyle” disease that is mainly caused by the stressful and toxic lifestyles we live.

It’s an undeniable fact that in this modern era that we are living in, everyone of us is exposed to a toxic and acidic onslaught, every moment of our lives. Most of us are exposed to toxic air and water pollution, fast fried fatty foods, processed foods, carcinogenic filled groceries, sugar filled foods and drinks, fruit and vegetables grown in pesticide poisoned soil; alcohol, smoking, lack of exercise, prescription and recreational drugs to mention the main culprits. This is exacerbated by the huge stress levels that most people are suffering from, which result in an acidic inner terrain.

In addition we are also faced with toxic products in our homes, with some household cleansers, personal care and cosmetic products having carcinogenic ingredients, and what we eat and drink is significantly acidic, with most “processed” and “convenience” foods containing toxic additives.

Very few of the modern day degenerative diseases, including cancer, were common just a hundred years ago and are unquestionably caused by our modern lifestyles. As a matter of fact the cancer rate 100 years ago was one in 8,000 while today it is one out of every four adult persons. This correlates directly with the increase in the use of acidic foods and toxic chemicals and pollution.

Carcinogens – the Cancer Curse

It is a proven fact that “carcinogens” cause cancer. So the question is, “How exposed are we to these cancer causing chemicals?”

The following statement is off the scorecard.org website who monitor air pollution in the US. “Over 4 billion pounds of toxic chemicals are released by industry into the nation’s environment each year, including 72 million pounds of recognized carcinogens”.

Friends of the Earth’s analysis of the Environment Agency’s Pollution Inventory shows that Britain’s biggest factories are still releasing over 10,000 tonnes of cancer-causing chemicals into the air every year.

The Chemical Industry in a Bottle

The Environmental Working Group have researched Personal Care products to establish their safety for five years now, and have published their findings.

Here are just 2 of the ways that we are continually exposed to these nasty chemicals.

Industrial chemicals are basic ingredients in personal care products.

• There are about 10,500 unique chemical ingredients in these products that contain carcinogens, pesticides, reproductive toxins, endocrine disruptors, plasticizers, degreasers, and surfactants, which equates to about one out of every eight of the 82,000 chemicals registered for use in Personal Care products in the US

• One of every five adults are potentially exposed every day to all of the top seven carcinogenic impurities common to personal care product ingredients – hydroquinone, ethylene dioxide, 1,4-dioxane, formaldehyde, nitrosamines, PAHs, and acrylamide.

The real damage is done by what we eat and drink.

In recent years, thanks to extensive research into food additives, it has been established that the main “additive killers” are “excitotoxins”.

Through a pathological process caused primarily by eating and drinking excess glutamate, aspartate and l-cysteine, powerful excitotoxins that over-activate receptors in the body, cause nerve cells to mutate or be damaged and killed.

Put in layman’s terms, excitotoxins “excite your brain cells to death!” and have been found to dramatically promote cancer growth and metastasis. When you increase the glutamate level, cancer just grows like wildfire, however when you block glutamate, it dramatically slows the growth of the cancer.

So, if nothing else, you must understand which additives are excitotoxins, what the consequences are of consuming them, and how you identify foods that generally have excitotoxins in them.

Although there are about 70 excitotoxins, Nitrosamines (Sodium Nitrite), Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) and Aspartame are the most dangerous, and are the main “additive killers” responsible for cancer and other degenerative diseases.

Nitrosamines – Sodium Nitrite is added to meat as a preservative, specifically to prevent the growth of the bacterium that causes botulism and to give it a cosmetic reddish look. When sodium nitrite is added to meat, it combines with the “amines” already present in the meat to form “nitrosamines”. These are highly carcinogenic chemical compounds which can increase your odds of getting brain tumours, leukaemia and certain forms of cancer.

MSG – Is the most widely used “flavour enhancer” in the world. It is used in processed food, fast foods, canned, packaged and frozen foods, soups, sauces and in Chinese food.

MSG has been linked to cancer, migraines, asthma, neurodegenerative diseases, ADHD, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS, heart irregularities and more recently to obesity.

Babies and children are most susceptible. Behavioural and physical problems as well as attention deficit disorder (ADD), have been diagnosed and successfully treated as MSG disorders.

Aspartame – Is an artificial sweetener and an “excitotoxin” with a significant history and dubious track record. Aspartame is found in more than 4,000 products and has poisoned and damaged millions of people worldwide over the last decade.

The damage also affects pregnant women, unborn babies and newborns. It can produce changes in the brain that are irreversible, depending on when it is stopped. It has been found to re-programme the wiring of the brain, particularly the hypothalamus, so it doesn’t function normally. Children absorbing large volumes of Aspartame are abnormal for the rest of their lives in terms of their physiological function.

You should also be aware that these three excitotoxins, significantly compromise the Immune System. A diet drink that includes Aspartame can disable the immune system for up to 6 hours. During this time cancer cells get the opportunity to run amuck and start taking control of certain cells.

Wow! That’s a lot of cancer for our Immune Systems to successfully process and keep our bodies “Cancer Free”, so it is no wonder that so many people get cancer.

Cancer Treatments

Hopefully you have a better idea of what causes cancer and what you need to avoid, to prevent cancer. Unfortunately not everyone is able to prevent getting cancer so let’s look at the cancer treatment options that are available to you if you or a family member are diagnosed with cancer.

The first thing to remember is that cancer is not a “Death Sentence” and can be successfully treated, especially if it’s detected early.

“Early Detection”

Obviously prevention is the main goal but “early detection” is the next best alternative. There is an excellent Cancer test that can detect cancer long before the symptoms become apparent, and significantly improve the chances of a successful recovery. The test is called the HCG Urine Cancer Test, and utilises the “abnormally dividing cells” concept that can tell you the relative number or level of these cells regardless of where they are in your body or where they started.

This test is also very useful to track the progress of any cancer treatment that you might be undergoing, to see if it is successfully treating the disease or not.

Conventional Treatment (Orthodox / Modern Medicine)

In the US and most other developed countries around the world that practice “modern medicine”, they have adopted a “standard cancer treatment” regimen that all conventional doctors, oncologists and other cancer carers must adhere to and administer.

This entails three treatments that are often used in conjunction.

• Surgery, to cut out tumours

• Radiation, to burn the tumours

• Chemotherapy, to poison and kill the cancer cells (and unfortunately – healthy cells)

I suggest you do your own research on these treatments to enable you to assess their efficacy and success rates, however here are some pointers from credible doctors and cancer researchers to start your research process.

It is important to note that cancer is the biggest and most lucrative “Disease Business” in the world, primarily controlled by “BigPharma”, estimated to be more that a $trillion a year.

Consider this. IN 2001 ALONE, AstraZeneca made $630 million on the sale of Nolvadex (a.k.a. tamoxifen), a breast cancer drug. They made $728 million on the sale of Zoladex, a prostate/breast cancer drug. They made another $569 million on Casodex, another prostate cancer drug. Within two years, says Forbes, this company’s sales of cancer fighter drugs alone will top $2.5 billion a year.

An article in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) recently stated that oncologists (cancer doctors) make an average of $253,000 a year, of which 75% is profit from chemotherapy drugs administered in their offices.

Here is what others had to say:

“As a chemist trained to interpret data, it is incomprehensible to me that physicians can ignore the clear evidence that chemotherapy does much, much more harm than good.”

Alan C. Nixon, Ph.D., Past President, American Chemical Society

“As a matter of fact there is evidence that the long term survival rate of cancer patients treated with Chemotherapy is between 3% and 6% whereas most of the best alternative treatments have a proven survival rate of between 50% and 70% when used alone, however using combinations of these alternative therapies that you will get access to in Bill Henderson’s book, “Cancer Free”-Your Guide to Gentle Non-toxic Healing”, boosts survival rates to an amazing 90%.”

This is how Ty Bolinger, author of “Cancer – Step Outside the Box” defines chemotherapy.

“Chemotherapy is toxic, carcinogenic (causes cancer), destroys red blood cells, devastates the immune system, and kills vital organs. How toxic is chemotherapy? Think about it… your hair falls out, your immune system is destroyed, you are constantly nauseated, you get sick and vomit, you are constantly dizzy, and you have severe headaches.”

It is “mindboggling” and unbelievable to accept that cancer can be treated with “carcinogens”, that are known to cause cancer? Obviously the oncologists in Montreal believe so too.

“A recent survey of the 64 oncologists on the staff at McGill Cancer Therapy Center in Montreal found that 58 of them (91%) said they would not take chemotherapy or allow their family members to take it for cancer treatment. Why not? Too toxic and not effective. Today, 75% of cancer patients are administered chemotherapy.”

Then the final word comes from the highly respected and experienced Dr Glenn Warner.

Dr. Glenn Warner is a board certified oncologist and one of the most highly qualified cancer specialist in the Seattle area. He uses alternative treatments on his cancer patients with great success. He has over 1,000 surviving cancer patients. On the treatment of cancer in this country he said: “We have a multi-billion dollar industry that is killing people, right and left, just for financial gain. Their idea of research is to see whether two doses of this poison is better than three doses of that poison.”

So lets look at some of the “Alternative Treatment” options mentioned by Dr Glenn Warner.

Alternative Treatments

Contrary to current medical rhetoric and “modern medicines” perverted claims, the cause of cancer is easy to understand and is readily preventable and reversible without the dangerous “modern medicine” therapies used as standard treatments in most countries – surgery (slash), radiation (burn) and chemotherapy (poison).

“It is pretty clear from all the research I have done that most cancers can be prevented by proper diet, supplements and exercise.” – Bill Henderson in his book “Cancer Cure – Your Guide to Gentle Non-Toxic Healing”.

Nobel Prize Winner Dr Otto Warburg, established in his research during the 1930’s that cancer only lives in an “acidic” (low oxygen) environment, like most other bacteria. Every time Otto Warburg lowered the oxygen level by 35% in a healthy cell, it became cancerous.

Why is this not common knowledge that cancer cannot exist in an “alkaline body”?

Simply put – “Power, Lies, Greed and Profit”.

Natural Cancer Treatments

Most successful “natural cancer treatments” involve 5 main activities:

• Assess the patients “Lifestyle Choices” and make the appropriate changes (stop smoking, as an example)

• Detox and cleanse the body of heavy metals and poisonous toxins

• Adopt a Diet that results in establishing a slightly “alkaline” inner body terrain

• Establish a “natural nutrient” supplementation programme that includes all of the necessary nutrients that the body needs on a daily basis to function at its peak

• Boosting the Immune System to perform at its peak at all times

Webster Kehr of the Independent Cancer Research Foundation, Inc, established the Cancer Tutor website in 2003. This is undoubtedly the best source of knowledge covering every aspect of Cancer and Cancer Treatments. It is considered to be among the most important websites on the Internet on the subject of alternative / natural cancer treatments.

Here are a few pointers from the Cancer Tutor to start you out on your “Natural Cancer Treatment” Journey.

“Mother Nature knows how to CURE cancer (i.e. restore the balance)!! In fact, Mother Nature has put more than 400 different ways to cure cancer on this planet!!

That is precisely why many people have no fear of cancer. They know exactly what to do if they get cancer.”

Webster covers most of the 400 natural cancer treatments in detail on his web site, with special focus on the Stage III and Stage IV cancer treatments. The latter have even been successful in severe cases where “conventional” doctors and oncologists have sent the patient home to die as there is no hope for the patient to recover. As he will show you many did recover using “natural cancer treatments”.

“Alternative cancer treatments have cured many, many cancer patients, including many advanced cancer patients!! But even those who do not survive can have a higher quality of life, their life can be extended significantly, they can be in less pain, and so on.”

“As an example of the effectiveness of alternative cancer treatments consider that the late Dr. William D. Kelley, a dentist by training, used alternative cancer treatments to treat more than 33,000 cancer patients. He used special diets, proteolytic enzymes, and other natural substances. He was able to cure more than 90% of the newly diagnosed cancer patients who went to him first.

Now consider that the alternative cancer treatments of today are far stronger than the Kelley protocol because Dr. Kelley did not have access to many of the products which are now available.”
