Cancer is an energy

Written by Simon Mitchell

Einstein, a genius scientist ofrepparttar 20th century, and central torepparttar 147229 new energy physics, stated that 'a problem cannot be solved byrepparttar 147230 same mind set that created it'. Cancer is a case in point. Cancer is a dis-ease that stems partly fromrepparttar 147231 products ofrepparttar 147232 mechanistic, anthropomorphic and exploitative philosophy atrepparttar 147233 heart of our culture, which we tend to ignore. Its effective treatment demands that we see ourselves in a different light and act accordingly.

Medicine is extremely slow to move from a mechanistic and physical philosophy to a more energetic model, likerepparttar 147234 Gaian paradigm that values all life forms as connected. A philosophy of medicine that is over-reliant on logic and limited mainly to drugs and surgery is fundamental flawed. Acts of logic always rely on analysis, that is breaking down a 'whole' into its constituent parts, and examining each minutely. Reductionist approaches fail to seerepparttar 147235 connectivity and relatedness of all things. As a result this philosophy is offering us 'cures' to cancer that are often as dangerous and destructive asrepparttar 147236 disease itself.

Nobel prize-winner Carlo Rubbia maintains that only a billionth ofrepparttar 147237 world is actually made of matter andrepparttar 147238 rest is made of energy. The new sciences are challengingrepparttar 147239 way we perceiverepparttar 147240 world and as a resultrepparttar 147241 way we relate to our bodies. Dr. K. Scott-Mumby is author of Virtual Medicine and an allergy specialist inrepparttar 147242 UK writes:

Science is proving that we exist as regulated and informed energy. Disease can now be redefined as a disruption, cessation or distortion inrepparttar 147243 information and energy fields. Its time for medical practitioners to joinrepparttar 147244 party.

Classical science has reachedrepparttar 147245 end of what it can explain in reductionist terms. Issues such as whether light is a particle or a wave, or whether or not water has a memory (an issue central torepparttar 147246 'proof' of homeopathy), are moving modern science to a quantum level that deals with fields of energy. Medical science is still stuck in a very physical universe, whererepparttar 147247 objective is to 'exciserepparttar 147248 lump' almost regardless of where it came from and individual conditions ofrepparttar 147249 patient and their experiences.

New sciences such asrepparttar 147250 chaos theories point a way forward into handlingrepparttar 147251 complexities of whole systems that work together, in synergy. Unfortunately our medical systems and practises are still too often based on philosophy formulated in medieval times.

Because all interventions in a medical process have to been 'proven' as workable (using scientific double-blind testing methods) before doctors will recognise their validity (if they then dorepparttar 147252 research), medical science mostly marginalises or ignores healing alternatives that can provide only 'anecdotal evidence'. Multiple simultaneous treatments of different types and 'levels' tuned for one patient are un-testable by a reductionist philosophy and therefore ignored by mainstream medicine. In addition to this regulatory pressures force researchers and companies to test their drugs on patients with advanced cancer - whenrepparttar 147253 dis-ease is much more difficult to treat and whenrepparttar 147254 chances of success are modest - this means that potentially useful treatments are discarded as worthless.

Orthodox cancer treatment

Written by Simon Mitchell

Diagnosis is a strength of Western scientific medicine because of its dependence on analytical procedures and processes of elimination. Modern technology has given us many ways to see intorepparttar body for effective diagnosis of dis-ease. Nowhere is scientific Western medicine so advanced than inrepparttar 147228 fields of diagnosis. Althoughrepparttar 147229 philosophy of Western medicine often comes in for criticism, modern science has produced many ways in which we can examine and image organisms internally and take samples of tissue in hard to reach places.

1. Diagnosis A qualified doctor should always berepparttar 147230 first point of contact for serious disease as they have a good chance of getting you a correct diagnosis. Self-diagnosis is not a good idea except for very minor ailments. If you can, always get a second opinion on any diagnosis. Inrepparttar 147231 UK you are urged to start orthodox cancer treatments within a month of diagnosis.

Diagnosis for cancer uses careful clinical assessment and advanced investigative techniques such as:

endoscopy: an endoscope is a tube-like viewing instrument with lenses and lights or video cameras that is inserted into a body orifice for investigating and treating disorders. If gives doctorsrepparttar 147232 ability to see insiderepparttar 147233 body and even remove small pieces of tissue for examination (biopsy).

imaging: This process allows doctors to produce images of structures withinrepparttar 147234 body that are otherwise difficult to see. For example short-wave, electromagnetic waves such as X-rays are passed throughrepparttar 147235 body. Some are absorbed and others pass throughrepparttar 147236 tissues to produce a shadow image that is projected onto a film or screen. In x-ray imagesrepparttar 147237 bones show up clearly, making it an excellent tool for seeing problems associated with bones or hard objects withinrepparttar 147238 body.

Inrepparttar 147239 1920's radiologists discovered that certain substances are opaque to radiation and they began to use them as 'contrast media'. When these media are introduced intorepparttar 147240 body they create an outline shape ofrepparttar 147241 cavities they fill, which helps to identify problem areas.

Ultrasound scanning projects high-frequency sound waves throughrepparttar 147242 body, using a transducer againstrepparttar 147243 skin. The waves are reflected back andrepparttar 147244 pattern of echoes produces an image. Computers are used to create better images. C.T. scanning (Computed Tomography) takes x-rays from different angles and usesrepparttar 147245 computer to create cross sections or three-dimensional images.
