Other Kinds Of Cancer
Category: The Analysis of Disease States: Helping the Body Recover
Source: How And When To Be Your Own Doctor
There seem to be many other kinds of cancer, at least if you believe
the medical doctors. They divide up cancers and their treatments by
their location in the body and by the type of cancer cells present.
I do not see it that way. To me, a cancer is a cancer is a cancer,
and there is only one kind: it is an immune system collapse,
consequence of the deadly triangle of weak spleen, thymus and liver,
plus a toxic large intestine and weak pancreas. That organ profile
is found in skin cancer, prostate cancer, leukemia, brain cancer,
cancer of what have you. How fast or how slowly the cells multiply
or spread, where they are located, what the cancer cells look like
in a microscope, these are irrelevant factors compared to the body's
ability to conquer the disease. Or die from it.
If the body's immune system can stop the growth of the cancers and
begin to turn them back before the cancer cells impinge
catastrophically on some vital function, the person can usually
survive. Even if the body cannot completely eliminate all the cancer
cells, but regains enough immune function to keep the existing
cancers in permanent check, a person can survive many years with an
existing, stable cancer without undue pain or discomfort. Still
having a non-growing tumor after a long fast indicates that a person
is a lot better than they were before fasting.
I believe that virtually everyone has cancer cells in their body,
just like viruses and bacteria. But most people do not develop
cancer as a disease because their immune function is strong so these
misbehaving cells are destroyed as fast as they appear. Mutated,
freely-multiplying cells are caused by peroxidized fats, by free
radicals in the body, by radiation (there has always been background
radiation on Earth), by chance mutation. There are naturally
occurring highly carcinogenic substances in ordinary foods that are
unavoidable. In fact some of these naturally occurring substances
are far more dangerous than the toxic residues of pesticides in our
foods. The body is supposed to deal with all these things; they are
all called insults. It is rarely the insult, but the failure of the
body to eliminate cancerous cells promptly that causes the disease
called cancer. So the treatment I recommend for cancer in general is
the same as the one described for breast cancer cases. Restore the
However, as much as I lack respect for conventional medical cancer
therapies, I do think surgery can have a useful place in cancer
treatment along with hygienic methods. Some people just cannot
confront the lump(s). Or they are so terrified of having a cancer in
their body that their emotions suppresses their own immune function.
Even though surgery prompts a cancer to spread more rapidly, without
their lumps some cancer patients feel more positive. If surgery is
done in conjunction with rebuilding the immune system, the body will
prevent new cancers from forming.
Removal of a large mass of cancer cells can also lighten the immune
system's task. Not having to kill off and reabsorb all those cells
one-by-one from a huge cancer mass, the body can better conquer
smaller groups of cancer cells. And the die-off of large cancers
produces a lot of toxins, burdening the organs of elimination. This
is an argument for the potential benefit of a lumpectomy. However, I
do not support mastectomies, or the type of surgery that cause
massive damage to the body in a foolish attempt to remove every last
cancer cell, as though the cells themselves were the disease.
Sometimes cancer tumors are well-encapsulated, walled off and can be
easily removed without prompting metastasis. This type of tumor may
not be completely reabsorbed by the body in any case; though the
immune system may have killed it, an empty shell remains, like a
peanut shell. Sometimes the judgment calls about surgery can get
dicey. When surgery involves removing an organ. I oppose the loss of
useful body parts.
I have also known and helped people who believed they couldn't
recover without radiation and chemotherapy. What people believe is,
is. The emotions generated when a personal reality is suppressed,
ignored or invalidated will overwhelm an immune system. I always
tell those people who sincerely believe in it to go ahead with
standard medical treatment (while I'm privately praying the doctors
won't cause too much damage). However, when I am supporting a body
with supplements and dietary reform, have put that body on a
raw-food cleansing diet or even a raw food diet with nuts and grains
that hardly detoxifies, and then the person has had chemotherapy and
radiation, the medical doctors in attendance are inevitably amazed
that the side effects are much milder than anticipated, or
non-existent. And fewer courses of chemotherapy are needed than the
For example, I worked with a little boy with leukemia. His mother
brought him to me while trying to resolve a conflict with her
ex-husband about the boy's treatment. The father demanded the
standard medical route; the mother was for natural therapy.
Eventually the father won in court, but I had the boy on my program
for three months before the doctors got their hands on him. Even
during chemotherapy and radiation the mother kept the boy on my
program. Throughout the doctors' treatment he had so few bad side
effects that he was able to continue in school and play with the
other children; he did not lose his hair (which would have made him
feel like a freak). He recovered. I don't mind that the medical
doctors took credit, but to my thinking, he recovered despite their
