When it comes to cancer, most people don’t know that when a tumor is big enough to be detected, it has taken 10-12 years to get there! That means cancer been has been growing in your body for that long, only now it’s suddenly showing. So, when oncologists want to rush you into surgery right away, the urgency is not real.
You may indeed want to relieve the body of the tumor burden at some point, but it’s taken a decade for that malignancy to surface, so you can afford to wait a few weeks, get a second or third opinion, and do some research about your best options.
OTHER SUCCESSFUL APPROACHES
Today, there are several other successful methods for shrinking tumors that do not require surgery. Unfortunately, in conventional circles, a cancer patient generates about one million dollars in revenue, so the fear marketing employed by doctors to push you to do surgery, chemo and radiation can be aggressive and sometimes, downright ruthless. Cancer is big business!
Frequently, oncologists warn patients not to do their own research because it will “frighten” them. How ironic that they feel it’s OK for them to scare you with their diagnosis. The truth is that they know if you spend some time researching, you may discover other more effective and less expensive options…and you might slip from their grip.
When my husband was diagnosed with bladder cancer, the news devastated us as a cancer diagnosis always does. As we sat trembling and vulnerable, we were given the typical doomsday scenario and, petrified, we agreed to having surgery the next week. It was only after the post surgery care was not well handled that we began to do our research, get other opinions, and what we learned changed out lives forever– for the better!
OUTWARD SIGNS OF INNER TROUBLE
In addition to what I just shared, we learned that tumors are simply outward signs of cancer. Tumor removal is simply that—tumor extraction, not cancer healing. Even though the doctor says “we got it all,” whatever caused the cancer still lurks in the body—environmental toxins, a bad diet, stress, lack of exercise, substance abuse, negative relationships, trauma, unforgiveness, lack of sleep, combinations of these, or other potential triggers.
Despite tumor removal, unless the cause of the cancer is treated and reversed, the circulating cancer cells will sooner or later birth more tumors elsewhere, which is why we so often hear of the cancer coming back even after someone has gone through and grueling surgery, chemo and radiation. The truth is that chemotherapy is in itself a carcinogen with a very low success rate of healing, and it does devastating damage to the immune system at a time when one needs it the most.
In our case, after rigorous research and a lot of prayer, we learned of and pursued more alternative approaches with great success. Despite being told by conventional doctors that his case was hopeless, my husband has been cancer free now for over four years. He feels and looks terrific and lives a very full and happy life.
