Don't Get Cancer

Written by Simon Mitchell

One antidote to cancer is information In general our responses to cancer are converging, but very slowly. Presently all cancer authorities are agreed on only one thing:

cancer cannot take hold in a healthy immune system

The World Health Organisation (W.H.O.) is promoting prevention as a better option than treatment and particularly targeting smoking asrepparttar highest recogniseable risk area. The Cancer Research Institute (C.R.I.) is seeking vaccines that supportrepparttar 147230 body's own ability to heal. Alternative and holistic approaches seek to dorepparttar 147231 same with diet, nutrition, lifestyle and other choices.

Different philosophies of medicine achieve 'immune support' in various ways not considered by orthodox Western medicine, which concentrates mainly on 'drugs and surgery' as an afterthought to disease, often just adding more toxins and stress to an overloaded system. Alternative treatments take many forms to supportrepparttar 147232 body in its own healing process. Although we have constant new biological treatments promised, they usually only apply to a small percentage of cancer types. Change in this field is agonisingly slow and in some cases utterly stuck. Medical science is failing to adapt torepparttar 147233 new 'quantum theory' sciences that seerepparttar 147234 human body from an energy or 'vibrational' perspective. Western 'allopathic' medicine continues to refuse integration with other, older medical philosophies such as Chinese, Ayurvedic, Tibetan, Homeopathy, Herbalism or vibrational treatment.

In truth we don't even have a research methodology that will cope with assessing different treatment forms and levels tuned to an individual patient. So far it is much easier forrepparttar 147235 orthodox to just denyrepparttar 147236 effectiveness of alternative ways of healing because they do not make rational scientific sense, than it is to extend their model to include other healing models. The fiscal interest of pharmaceutical companies is also a factor in our lack of access to holistic treatments

The complex cancer situation effects us all directly. One in three people inrepparttar 147237 'West' now gets cancer at some point. Many factors are combining to aggravate acute degenerative disorders such as cancer or heart disease,repparttar 147238 two top killers inrepparttar 147239 Western World. These exposerepparttar 147240 unwary to dangers and this includesrepparttar 147241 toxic side-effects of allopathic treatments - it is emerging thatrepparttar 147242 third biggest killer may be 'allopathic medicine' itself !

The Cancer Research Industry Research shows that in UK every year somewhere between 450 to 500 million is spent on cancer research byrepparttar 147243 pharmaceutical industries, charitable organisations and government. In US an estimated $14 billion dollars (7.72 billion) are spent. A hard-hitting report published in March 2004 by Fortune, an American business magazine and written by Cliff Leaf, himself a cancer survivor, suggests that for several reasons much of this funding and research is misdirected. He claims that despite a total of $200 billion spent on cancer research since 1971 that mortality rates are basically unchanged. The report was all but ignored by mainstream media.

What if he's right? What is much of this money is wasted? What ifrepparttar 147244 research is misdirected? What if much ofrepparttar 147245 work serves no real purpose beyondrepparttar 147246 generation of profit? That would mean thatrepparttar 147247 cancer research industry is one ofrepparttar 147248 biggest bandwagons ever. Despite many more billions spent world-wide on cancer research there seems very little to show for it. After seeing friends and family cut down in their prime by cancer, and its allopathic treatments, this researcher believes that there is something seriously wrong with accepted wisdom on cancer treatment. The author's local health authority has a twelve million pound overspend this year -repparttar 147249 major expenditure? The cost of cancer drugs. Several situations are combining to make cancer a big risk for us all at this time, despiterepparttar 147250 hard work of many dedicated health service professionals.

Cancer and Orthodox Medical Science Although medical science has created miracles in dealing with infectious diseases, solving many ofrepparttar 147251 medical problems ofrepparttar 147252 1940's and 50's,repparttar 147253 new weapons against acute degenerative disorders are not yet ready. Genetic testing and counselling, gene therapy, nutrigenomics, advanced (subtle and tuned) radiotherapies, cell therapies, therapuetic cloning, cancer vaccines and even anti-aging therapies are a seemingly constant 10 - 15 years away. This isrepparttar 147254 21st century and we are still getting 20th century treatments. This leaves us atrepparttar 147255 moment in a time of high cancer risk with treatments that are oftenrepparttar 147256 medical equivalent of cracking a nut with a sledgehammer. The orthodox treatment of cancer is too often as dangerous asrepparttar 147257 disease itself.

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.
