According to the National Cancer Institute an estimated 1,685,210 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in the United States in 2016, and 595,690 people will die from the disease. Approximately 39.6 percent of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetimes (based on 2010-2012 data).
For me, it took a diagnosis of bladder cancer (in February 2015) at the age of 70 to wake me up to the realization that my lifestyle was out of harmony with a natural and well-balanced life. My doctor wanted to immediately start me on chemo and schedule a surgery to remove my bladder. That is the "standard" treatment protocol. There was never any discussion about what may have caused the cancer, and what we could do to support the body's natural defense mechanism - the immune system. Rather, the wisdom of drug-based medicine is to destroy the immune system with chemo and radiation, which has a dismal 5% projection of living beyond 5 years after treatment. "A tumor is a symptom of cancer, and generally does not threaten the life of a patient. It is the spreading of the cancer that causes life-threatening situations. Neither surgery, chemotherapy nor radiation stop the spreading of cancer. Only the immune system can stop the spreading of cancer." - Cancer Tutor
So why are doctors still prescribing chemo therapy rather than focusing on a holistic approach to strengthen the immune system ? As they say, "follow the money." Note this recent report in the Wall Street Journal: "...a new report finds that global spending on oncology treatments reached $100 billion last year, which represented a 10.3% increase from the previous year and a substantial rise from $75 billion spent five years ago... In the U.S., patient out-of-pocket costs associated with intravenous cancer drugs rose sharply. Between 2012 and 2013, out of pocket costs for IV cancer drugs grew by 71%..." Now that is what I call a "growth industry."
Having been an advocate of natural health for many years, my gut instinct told me that chemo was not a wise decision. But this is the dilemma many people face: family and friends will tell you the best thing to do is follow the advice of your doctor and hope for the best. That "sound medical advice" almost always means to undergo chemo therapy and surgery. Disclaimer: I strongly advise you to find and work with a Holistic Doctor who will help guide your treatment, and do the lab work needed to track your progress. So I refused chemo and began some serious research to educate myself on the subject. And this is my advice to you: do your own due diligence, and invest the time to educate yourself so that you can make an informed decision. This is seldom an immediate life or death decision - you have time to research and consider your options. It was time for me to make a decision and take responsibility for my health. Below is an excerpt from my doctor's report:
"Will see (me) back after his CT (scan) to discuss resection of his bladder tumor. He is interested in having the tumor resected (removing the tumor), but not cystectomy, chemo or radiation. We have discussed that his use of alternative medicine in stage 2 bladder cancer is not optimal, but he is certainly capable of making his own decisions."
As you can see, I rejected undergoing chemo and radiation therapy. But I did elect to undergo a surgical procedure called resection where a scope and tool is inserted up the urinary tract and the tumor is scrapped from the muscle wall. I felt this was non-invasive and allowed me to keep my bladder, which they wanted to remove. What did my doctor mean by the statement that my use of "alternative medicine in stage 2 bladder cancer is not optimal"? He meant that if I did not undergo chemo that I would likely not survive the cancer - he gave me 12 to 18 months to live if untreated - and that was almost 18 months ago (3/15 to 9/16)! The full torso scan showed no METs (tumor mass growths) outside of the bladder. This aggressive cancer had not spread, and I know this is because I began researching and using very effective nutritional products. In my last exam on September 2016 he was "surprised" to see some visual evidence of tumor size reduction and that I was not experiencing any expected symptoms. I was surprised that he showed no interest in what my alternative treatments were that produced these good results. But after watching this video I am no longer surprised - like I said - "follow the money..."
Wow! Well, in case you think this doctor is just promoting book sales, here is an excerpt from an NPR interview of Dr. Ayalew Tefferi of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, himself a respected Oncologist:
"The downfall arguably started with the Flexner Report giving birth to “Rockefeller medicine” which effectively stomped out true natural cures. From there the roots of an industrial-corporate-medical monopoly manifested as the German company IG Farben and then later morphing into several multinational drug company monopolies. The “crisis” Dr. Tefferi describes won’t end through the adjustment of a few cancer drug prices. The nature of monopolies is control, and at their core, abuse of power. In addition to having effectively captured regulatory agencies long ago, pharmaceutical companies have annual profits dwarfing most states and some countries. To play in their system is to lose. The fact will always remain that nature cannot be patented and thus, natural cures are the mortal enemy of drug companies whose lifeblood is profits. The legal rap sheets of pharmaceutical companies are further proof of their lack of empathy and profits-over-people directives."
Dr. Tefferi goes on to state that the average annual cost of cancer treatment exceeds $100,000. When you factor in patient co-pay, the annual out of pocket expense is at least $20,000. So this brings us full-circle to look at the "mortal enemy of drug companies" - plant based homeopathic treatments. And this, my friends, is the focus of this blog and the research I post here. I have sifted through tons of natural remedies and supplements in my personal search to cure myself of cancer. One of the important lessons I have learned is be careful about buying cheaper products. There is a reason they are cheaper. The keywords here are bio-availability (nutrient absorption that reaches systemic circulation), chelation, fermentation, synergistic, trans-brain barrier, and carrier compounds, to name just a few. The products that I am now taking, and listed on this site, all meet these requirements to ensure that your body actually absorbs them to derive maximum benefit at the cellular level where all the magic happens. There is no cost-benefit to saving a few dollars to buy inferior products when it comes to your health. All the products here are 1st in their respective class. The name of the game is feeding your cells what they need to do their job.

How Preventing Cancer is Like… Growing A Garden
If you have gotten this far, then you either have an inquiring mind, and/or, you are beginning to suspect that you have not been told the truth about preventing cancer - even curing it! So let's shift our focus to what is actually working for 10,000's who have taken the road less traveled - natural cures. This next video is by Ty Bollinger who has a life mission to promote the truth about cancer to millions and to save thousands of lives through education.
So would you like to learn more about these selective natural treatments for cancer? Thought so... This is really about educating yourself so that you can make wise and informed decisions about your health. Perhaps you already know much or all of what is presented on this site. But the odds are that someone you care about has learned that they have cancer, and they are overwhelmed not knowing what to do about it. Hopefully the information on this site will provide a sound basis for further research, and also give hope in the face of uncertainty. Here you go...
