I responded recently to a friend about her cancer and her future. I strongly suggested that once a tumor has been removed the likelihood of recurrence is high if you don’t change anything in your lifestyle. Something caused a cancer to grow. We all have cancer seeds in our bodies. It’s the environment we give them that allows them to grow or die.
What are causes? The primary causes that I’ve researched are stress, toxins, radiation, infection, inflammation, diet and expectations. Ask an oncologist what causes cancer and you will most likely not get an answer. The same with a radiologist. They treat the symptoms of cancer, but not the cause. Yet, there are a lot of articles in many medical journals highlighting potential causes of cancer.
Yet, when asked about our immune system and how it helps us fight disease, doctors will agree that we need to keep our immune system as strong as possible. Yet, they won’t/don’t give any advice on exactly what to do. I’ve been through this on a personal basis with my wife’s cancer treatments.
Removing a tumor doesn’t mean that you automatically get a free ‘get out of jail’ card for future cancers. It’s interesting that a tumor exerts control over other cancer seeds and prevents them from growing. Removing the tumor takes the brakes away from other cancer seeds and opens the door for future cancers to grow – many times in vastly different areas of the body (metastasis).
You must do something to change what caused the cancer to minimize the risk of future cancer. My wife and I discussed what potentially caused her breast cancer and decided that it was most likely a combination of stress, toxins, inflammation and diet. All four of these are very treatable.
Sugar provides a growth medium for most cancers. So do acidic conditions within the body. Both of these are controllable. As with any enemy you are trying to destroy, you must know your enemy’s strengths and weaknesses. Then you exploit both to defeat any existing or future tumors. And, these personal options can be used in conjunction with surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
Note: I am not a medical doctor and do not prescribe or treat any disease. I research what’s available in the fitness, health, wellness and medical worlds and tell people what is there. I specifically look for cause and effect relationships. Doctors treat symptoms, not causes. Arm yourself with the right questions to ask your doctor to help you survive your cancer (disease) better than blindly accepting treatments for symptoms only.
