(NaturalNews) What you are about to read may rock or even dismantle the very foundation of your beliefs about your body, health and healing. The title, Cancer Is Not a Disease, may be unsettling for many, provocative to some, but encouraging for all. This book will serve as a life-altering revelation for those who are sufficiently open-minded to consider the possibility that cancer is not an actual disease. Instead, they will begin to view cancer to be a profoundly elaborate and final attempt by the body to heal itself and stay alive for as long as circumstances permit; circumstances that, as you will discover, are most likely in your control.
It will perhaps astound you to learn that if you are afflicted with any of the root causes of cancer (which constitute the real illness) you would most likely die quickly unless your body actually grew cancer cells. In this work, I propose the understanding that cancer is a healing process that we ought to support, not suppress or fight. I provide evidence that this rather unorthodox approach to healing cancer is far more effective than the methods that involve destroying it.
I further claim that cancer – the body’s final healing mechanism – will only kick in after the body’s main waste removal and detoxification mechanisms have already been rendered inefficient.
In extreme circumstances, exposure to large amounts of cancer-producing agents (carcinogens) can bring about a collapse of the body’s defenses within several weeks or months, which may subsequently require a rapid and aggressive growth of a cancerous tumor to deal with it. By and large, though, it takes many years, or even decades, for so-called ‘malignant’ tumors to form and become diagnostically noticeable.
Unfortunately, basic misconceptions or complete lack of awareness about the true reasons behind malignant tumor growth have turned misaligned cells into vicious monsters that indiscriminately attempt to kill us, perhaps in retaliation for our sins or abusing the body. However, as you are about to find out, cancer is on our side, not against us. Unless we change our perception of what cancer really is, it will most likely resist treatment, particularly the most advanced and commonly applied methods. If you have cancer, and cancer is indeed part of the body’s complex survival responses and not a disease, as I claim it is, you must find answers to the following important questions:
- What reasons coerce your body into developing cancer cells?
- Once you have identified these reasons, how will you need to deal with them to allow your body to heal?
- What determines the type and severity of cancer with which you are afflicted?
- If cancer is indeed a healing mechanism, what will you need to do to avoid the body having to employ such extreme measures of self-preservation in the future?
- Since the body’s original genetic design always favors the continuance of life and protection against adversities of any kind, how then could the body possibly permit a genetic change to occur that causes its own demise?
- Why do almost all cancers disappear by themselves, without medical intervention?
- Do radiation, chemotherapy and surgery actually cure cancer in some people, or do cancer patients heal themselves, in spite of these radical, side-effect-loaded treatments?
- What roles do fear, frustration, low self-worth and repressed anger play in the origination and outcome of cancer?
- Why do so many children develop brain tumors or leukemia?
To deal with and heal the root causes of cancer, you ought to find satisfying and practical answers to the above questions. If you feel the inner urge to make sense of this life-changing event (cancer, that is), you will greatly benefit from continuing to read this book. Cancer can be your greatest opportunity to help restore balance to all aspects of your life, but it can also be the harbinger of severe trauma and suffering if you perceive it as a threat to your life.
Either way, you will discover that you are always in control of your body. To live in a human body, you must have access to a certain amount of life-sustaining energy. You may either use this inherent energy for nourishing and healing the body or waste it on fighting a battle against a disease that medical theory believes is out to kill you. The choice is ultimately yours.
In case you consciously or unconsciously choose negligence of, or going into battle against, your body over loving attention and self-respect, it will likely end up having to fight for its life. Bottom line, the main issue in question is not whether you have cancer but how you perceive it and what you are going to do about it.
Cancer is but one of the many possible ways the body forces you to alter the way you see and treat yourself, including your physical body. You may either make out cancer to be something dreadful that leaves you victimized and powerless or see it as an opportunity to stand up for yourself, your values, and self-respect. This inevitably brings up the subject of spiritual health, which I believe plays at least as important a role in cancer as physical and emotional reasons do.
Cancer appears to be a highly confusing and unpredictable disorder. It seems to strike the very happy and the very sad, the rich and the poor, the smokers and the non-smokers, the very healthy and the not so healthy. And although cancer occurrence among children used to be extremely rare, it is not rare anymore.
People from all backgrounds and occupations can have cancer. However, if you dare look behind the mask of its physical symptoms, such as the type, appearance and behavior of a cancerous tumor, you will find that cancer is not as coincidental or unpredictable as it seems to be.
What makes 50% of the American population so prone to developing cancer, when the other half has no risk at all? Blaming the genes for that is but an excuse to cover up ignorance of the real causes or lure people afflicted with cancer into costly treatment and prevention programs.
Later in the book, I will discuss the most recent research done on possible genetic inheritance factors in relation to cancers of the breast, lungs, and many others. You will be astounded to find out that genes have little, if anything, to do when members from several generations of the same family develop the same types of cancer. In fact, top genetic researchers now affirm that gene-behavior is ultimately determined by the way we eat, think, emote and live our lives. Genes don’t just accidentally malfunction one day and cause cancer in everyone related to them (family members).
Cancer has always been an extremely rare illness, except in industrialized nations during the past 50-60 years. However, human genes have not significantly changed for thousands of years. Why would they change so drastically now, and suddenly decide to attack and destroy the bodies of nearly half of the population? The answer to this question, which I will further elaborate on in this book, is amazingly simple: Although genes may be undergoing mutation for reasons discussed later, even if they became damaged or faulty, they still would not be able to kill anyone.
It is important to know that cancer rarely causes someone to die, although it undeniable that many people afflicted with cancer also die. Nonetheless, unless a tumor causes a major mechanical obstruction in a vital organ or severely impedes the blood flow to it, or the lymph drainage from it, a cancer patient is much more likely to die from the reasons that lead to cell mutation and tumor growth than from the cancer itself.
Every cancer therapy should be focused on the root causes of cancer, yet most oncologists typically ignore them. For example, a diet consisting of junk foods that are typically deprived of any nutritional value and real energy causes chaotic, traumatic conditions in the body that are identical to those experienced during physical starvation. In this book, I will elaborate on how such a process of self-destruction is bound to require a major healing response on behalf of the body.
It is becoming increasingly evident that almost all cancers are preceded by some kind of traumatic event in the past, such as a divorce, the death of a loved one, an accident, the loss of a job or possessions, or an ongoing conflict with a boss or relative. The body has no other choice than to respond to such profound stress factors with predictable biological survival or coping mechanisms that may involve temporary abnormal cell growth. That most doctors agree with the theory that the resulting tumor is a disease, not a healing mechanism, doesn’t mean it is true.
Cancerous tumors are merely symptoms of disease that are caused by something else that may not be obvious at first. It is clear, though; they don’t just pop up for no reason. For one thing, constant emotional conflicts, resentment, guilt and shame can easily suppress the body’s immune system, digestive functions and basic metabolic processes, and thereby create the conditions for the occurrence of a cancerous tumor.
Fortunately, the psychological stress/cancer-connection no longer lingers in the realm of fiction and uncertainty. Supported by ample scientific evidence, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) make this important statement on their web site: “Intensive and prolonged stress can lead to a variety of short- and long-term negative health effects. It can disrupt early brain development and compromise functioning of the nervous and immune systems. In addition, childhood stress can lead to health problems later in life including alcoholism, depression, eating disorders, heart disease, cancer, and other chronic diseases.”
In spite of the undeniable evidence that backs up the CDC’s claims, most medical doctors rarely acknowledge or attempt to treat these root causes of disease but instead focus on eradicating its symptoms. Perhaps, this crucial, potentially fatal, flaw permeating almost the entire medical field is rooted in the complete absence of the stress/disease connection; the mind/body relationship is certainly not taught at medical schools.
After having seen thousands of cancer patients over a period of three decades, I began to recognize a certain pattern of thinking, believing and feeling that was common to most of them. To be more specific, I have yet to meet a cancer patient who does not feel burdened by some poor self-image, unresolved conflict and worries, or past emotional conflict/trauma that still lingers in his subconscious mind and cellular memories. I believe that cancer, the physical disease, cannot occur unless there is a strong undercurrent of emotional uneasiness and deep-seated frustration.
Cancer patients typically suffer from lack of self-respect or worthiness, and often have what I call an unfinished business in their life. Cancer can actually be a way of revealing the source of such an unresolved, inner conflict. Furthermore, cancer can help them come to terms with such a conflict, and even heal it altogether. The way to take out weeds is to pull them out along with their roots. This is how we ought to treat cancer; otherwise, it may recur eventually.
I often hear the argument that the emotional stress/cancer connection may apply to adults but certainly cannot apply to young children who have fallen ill with leukemia or brain cancer. I tend to disagree, and the CDC’s position in this matter confirms my understanding. Childhood stress can lead to cancer, according to the CDC. And, “human beings experience stress early, even before they are born,” say the CDC on their web site.
It is a scientific fact that some of the most powerful influences that a child a can experience occur while it is still in the mother’s womb. It has been clearly demonstrated that what a mother goes through emotionally and physically has a strong impact on the emotional and physical health of her child. My book Timeless Secrets of Health and Rejuvenation describes in greater detail how strongly fetuses react to ultrasounds and that this can lead to developmental problems later on.
There is further evidence that not having a normal childbirth but being born by Cesarean section can have traumatic effects on babies. In addition, not breastfeeding a baby and keeping a baby in a separate room from the mother can cause a biological separation conflict which can even cause crib death. Not sensing and feeling the heartbeat of the mother turns out to be anxiety-provoking for an infant. Prematurely born babies are particularly traumatized by separation anxiety.
Furthermore, vaccinations cause biological shocks, similar to mini strokes, besides exposing the baby to numerous carcinogenic toxins contained in vaccines. The pain of the injection and the resulting healing response may also have trauma-evoking consequences.
Absence of breastfeeding is well known to cause psychological, emotional, and developmental problems to a young child.
Direct exposure to the radiation emanated by cell phones while in the womb and thereafter can profoundly affect the health of children, according to recent research.
An inadequate diet that includes sugar, cow’s milk, animal proteins, and fried foods, and other junk foods, greatly affects children, too. And if mothers drink alcohol, eat junk food or take medication during pregnancy, or were vaccinated themselves, this also has a detrimental effect on the baby’s health.
Babies treated for infection with antibiotics is severely damaging to their growing immune systems.
It has been shown recently that babies have as many as 250 chemicals in their blood, many of which are highly carcinogenic. Mothers, who are not in good health and still breastfeed their babies, actually contaminate them. In series of studies, the poison fluoride, added to the municipal drink water in the United States and other countries, has been clearly linked to causing cancer of the bone (osteosarcoma), and other types of cancer. The good news is that after having endorsed fluoride in drinking water for decades, in January 2011, the CDC issued an urgent warning that the current levels of fluoride in drinking water can cause serious harm to children.
Clamping the umbilical cord too early, instead of the required 40-60 minutes after birth, can reduce the oxygenation of the blood in the baby by over 40%, and prevent filtering toxins out of the blood through the placenta. This relatively new practice is found to have severely negative effect on the growth of children. Whatever affects a child physically, also affects it emotionally and psychologically. In other words, one doesn’t need to be a grown up to be gripped by emotional trauma.
Research findings also demonstrate that childhood stress can impact adult health. One of the largest studies of its kind, the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study, demonstrates a link between specific 1) violence-related stress, including child abuse, neglect, and repeated exposure to intimate partner violence, and 2) risky behaviors and health problems in adulthood.
The ACE Study, a collaboration between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Kaiser Permanente’s Health Appraisal Clinic in San Diego, covered over 17,000 adults participating in the research from 1995 to 1997. It collected and analyzed detailed information on the participants’ past history of abuse, neglect, and family dysfunction as well as their current behaviors and health status.
The ACE Study findings have been published in more than 30 scientific articles. They revealed that childhood abuse, neglect, and exposure to other adverse experiences are common. Almost two-thirds of study participants reported at least one ACE, and more than one in five reported three or more. The ACE Study findings suggest that certain experiences are major risk factors for the main causes of illness and death, as well as poor quality of life in the United States.
Remember, prolonged emotional stress can compromise the immune system and thereby render the body susceptible to virtually every type of illness, including cancer. I will return to his important subject later.
The first chapter of this book provides you with profound insights into what cancer really is and stands for, seen from a physical perspective. It is an understanding of cancer you may never have come across before. This new and yet timeless comprehension of cancer allows for new approaches targeted at actually healing the causes of cancer instead of merely fixing its symptomatic manifestations.
You will also learn about the astonishing discoveries made by leading cancer researchers that prove cancer is not caused by cell mutation alone but requires the support and participation of the entire organism. Furthermore, check out the new findings that show why so many diagnosed cancerous tumors are actually completely harmless and disappear on their own.
Chapters Two and Three deal with the physical and emotional/spiritual causes, respectively. For clarity sake, I have tried to separate these categories, although I am very much aware that such a division is arbitrary and non-existent. I have done this for one purpose only: to emphasize that healing the causes of cancer must include restoring one’s physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
Leaving out just one of these factors would undermine the chances of full recovery and eventually lead to the recurrence of cancer (most medically treated cancers reoccur). At least, such an incomplete approach would seriously affect one’s mental and physical health and, foremost of all, one’s state of happiness and self-worth.
The following statement, which runs like a red thread through the entire book, is very important in the consideration of cancer: “Cancer does not cause a person to be sick; it is the sickness of the person that causes the cancer.” And I will add to this statement that “Once a cancer has occurred, its main purpose is to return the sick person to a balanced condition of mind, body and spirit.”
This is so contradictory to what conventional medicine and the media want you to believe, that it may sound outrageous to you. Yet whether cancer heals you or leads to your demise has actually more to do with what is going in your personal life than with the cancer itself, that is, how aggressive it is, or how early it is being detected.
Take David, for example. At age 58, he was diagnosed with lung cancer during a routine health checkup. Although, he never felt bad before the diagnosis, his health declined rapidly during the following two weeks. He lost his appetite, he couldn’t sleep anymore, his breathing became very shallow and he suffered severe panic attacks and chest pain. He died 20 days after the diagnosis. The death certificate said he died from lung cancer, but it is clear that without the cancer diagnosis, none of these overwhelming stress-induced effects would have occurred.
There is no doubt (anymore) that emotional stress can shut down your immune system and not only prevent your body from healing, but actually make you very ill. There is medical evidence to show that during severe stress, people can die from a massive heart attack without any prior heart condition or clogged arteries.
Your ability to recover your health requires you to become and feel whole again on all levels of body, mind and spirit. Once the cancer causes and other impediments to feeling whole have been properly identified, it will become apparent what needs to be done to achieve complete recovery. This is the subject matter of Chapter Four.
It is a medical fact that every person has millions of cancer cells in the body at all times in his life. This is not an indication that there is something wrong with us. On the contrary, as we shall see, this forms an essential part of maintaining the body’s healthy equilibrium.
These millions of cancer cells remain undetectable through standard tests. However, they show up as tumors once they have multiplied to several billion. When doctors announce to their cancer patients that the treatments they prescribed had successfully eliminated all cancer cells, they merely refer to tests that are able to identify the detectable size of cancer tumors.
Standard cancer treatments may lower the number of cancer cells to an undetectable level, but this certainly cannot eradicate all cancer cells. As long as the causes of tumor growth remain intact, cancer may redevelop at any time, in any part of the body, and at any speed.
Curing cancer has little to do with getting rid of a group of detectable cancer cells. Treatments like chemotherapy and radiation are certainly capable of poisoning or burning many cancer cells, but they also destroy healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract, liver, kidneys, heart, lungs, etc., which often leads to permanent irreparable damage of entire organs and systems in the body.
The toxic chemicals contained in chemotherapy drugs alone can cause such severe inflammation in every cell of the body that even the hair follicles can no longer hold on to the strands of hair.
A real cure of cancer does not come at the expense of destroying other vital parts of the body. It is achievable only when the causes of excessive growth of cancer cells have been addressed and the body is being properly supported through its healing process. Cancer is the healing process that the body may choose to reestablish homeostasis. Not recognizing cancer as a healing mechanism can turn out to be fatal, and it often is.
This book is dedicated to dealing with the causes of cancer, not with its symptoms. Treating cancer as if it were a disease is a trap that millions of people have fallen into and they have paid a high price for not attending to its root causes.
While I strongly believe that cancer is a final healing phase, not a disease, I am fully aware that most people consider cancer to be a dreaded disease. I make no claims that my understanding of cancer is the only correct one, but I propose it is one of many correct ones.
The old saying, “Knowledge is different in different states of consciousness,” reveals ‘truth’ to be a subjective projection of the mind, conscious or subconscious. In other words, if you insist that cancer is a terrible disease that may take your life, this death-fright belief of yours is likely going to fulfill your dreaded expectation. Remember, emotional trauma suppresses the immune system and prevents healing. Likewise, if you perceive cancer to be a healing phase that deals with an underlying imbalance, your truth is also going to help you achieve a positive outcome of your uplifting expectation.
It is unfortunate that the medical profession has by and large discouraged patients to participate in, or affect, their own cures. Patients are rarely included in the process of healing. Instead, medical treatments are now propagated to be the sole remedy for today’s ills. In truth, whether a person heals or doesn’t is largely controlled by the state of the body, mind and spirit of the person. Accepting this as fact can have enormous self-empowering effects which I consider essential for healing to occur and be effective.
