Thoughts On The Cure For Cancer

A short time ago, a visiting relative asked my wife and me what we thought about the idea that the cure for cancer was already established, but was being hidden from the general public for various reasons. Being a pharmaceutical sales representative, her idea of the cure for cancer was a drug or procedural treatment that could be received from a doctor, and used right away to experience a complete recovery from cancer.

Her question was an important reminder for me, as I usually do not focus on the reality that a good number of people in our society -- perhaps the vast majority -- believe in cures that come in expensive packaging or from skilled hands in the operating room.

Please take a moment to consider the many fund-raising campaigns that exist to support doctors and scientists who are working on cures to many different types of cancer and other chronic, degenerative health challenges. I'm not questioning the sincerity and motives of such doctors and scientists, as I have no doubt that some of them are passionate about discovering cures to different health conditions. I'm only pointing out that a belief in quick-fix cures exists in virtually all pockets of society.

Here is the gist of what I shared with our visiting relative:

There is no such thing as a cure for any health condition, or if there are cures for specific diseases, then these cures cannot last for more than the few seconds that it takes for you to have a thought or to feel anything.

This is because each of the trillions of cells that make up your body is constantly changing in its health status according to your ongoing thoughts and emotions. If this reality is difficult for you to believe or comprehend, or if you feel that your thoughts and emotions do not have significant influence over your physical health, then please consider the following examples of the ability that your thoughts and emotions have to produce real physical change in your body:

  • Tiny hairs on your arms and neck rising when you are suddenly frightened
  • Blushing when you feel shy or embarrassed
  • Salivating when you think about eating something tasty or bitter
  • Bodily changes associated with modified blood flow when aroused by thoughts of being physically intimate with your partner, the most obvious ones being engorgement of a man's penis and a woman's clitoris

Just as your thoughts and/or emotions in the examples above lead to physical change in your body, every thought and emotion that you have as you go about your daily activities is making a contribution to the health state of each of your cells. This is why Dr. Deepak Chopra says that your body is never the exact same at two different moments in time - your body is constantly changing. Dr. Chopra likens this dynamic, ever-changing state to the idea that you can never step into the same river twice because a single point in a river is never composed of the same molecules of water at two moments in time.

So let's imagine that "the cure" for breast cancer is discovered today. From the very first second after a man or woman's breast cancer is cured, his or her cells will continue to be influenced by the thought and emotional patterns that were in place when the breast cancer was originally created. Unless the cured person understands this and works hard to choose thought and emotional patterns that support rather than deteriorate health, chances are good that the breast cancer will return, or that some other degenerative disease will develop in its place.

Please remember that the moment-to-moment choices that you make on which foods to put into your body, how much rest to get, how much physical activity to engage in, how much fresh air and sunlight you are exposed to, and what types of personal care and household products you use act along with your ongoing thoughts and emotions to determine how healthy each of your cells are. So any cure that you experience with cancer or another health condition will last only as long as all of your choices support optimal health.

All of the above can be summarized in this way: your body is designed to produce perfectly appropriate consequences to every choice that you make in life. Each of your choices -- including the thought and emotional patterns that you choose to engage in -- are creating the health or health challenge(s) that you experience each day.

I find this principle of there being perfectly appropriate consequences to every choice that we make to be incredibly empowering, as it reminds me that I am the chief architect of my own health and life. There may be times when I feel that my circumstances and genetics are daunting and unfair, but every new moment in front of me is a golden opportunity to think or behave in a way that will help to make the vision that I have for my health and life a reality.

Ultimately, I suppose that I believe that the cure for cancer and every other health challenge involves doing the best that we can to take care of our health on a daily basis. No other "cure" can provide as much peace of mind over the short or long term. And isn't peace of mind the best cure that any of us can hope to experience?

I think what the question really entails was quite simple. Yes it is a question of balance but are there cures for the extreme imbalance of cancers? You will not ever find them coming from the pharmaceutical industry or the AMA or any of their supporting moneybaggers such as American Cancer Society etc. The pharmaceutical industry is for profit not for health, allopathic medicine should only be an exception and not the NORM, it is a deadly practice by and large. The pharmaceutical industry are the only alchemists who truly learned how to turn substances into gold, the gold they line their pockets with while you are dying from their Food and Drugs Administered to you once you get their cancers. If you want to cure cancer, stay out of the drug stores and doctors office, stop poisoning your body every chance you get, as the toxins start to leave your body, your brain cells will be replaced with healthier ones that will make your thinking and emotional being more balanced and better able to detox what you cannot control. There are holistic practices available that can greatly assist you in restoring the body from the ravage of cancer and YES those practices are being suppressed even attacked by the pharmaceutical industry (legalized drug cartel) and their henchmen, but too many people are afraid to tell the truth about it while millions of our families and friends die needlessly. The pharmaceutical industry doesn't loose money over those deaths, think about it. Stop funding the war on cancer people, they are killing you with the proceeds.

An excelent brief on the topic. I encourage you to go further on the connection of the diferent emotions afecting diferent organs specificaly. Anger- the liver (adversly), Grief-the lungs, etc. Thank you for the enlightening News Letter

I really just want to get the word out to everyone that your options should be weighed before you listen to your oncologist, who will just pump your veins full of yet another deadly toxin. If my family and I had done our research when my mother was diagnosed with cancer, I know she'd be a live today. If not, then I know the chemo significantly added to her quick death. She wasn't even having symptoms when they diagnosed her!! Four months later, she's gone??? Doctors are not Gods, nor the authority figures of America. Please stop putting them on pedestals and letting them control your decisions. They're getting paid too, as drug pushers. It's all about the money. ----And does anyone REALLY think the American Cancer Society wants a cure for cancer??? They'd all be broke and out of jobs!! --

I just want to comment on this report and I agree 100% with this lady. By all means Doctors are not God's nor authority figures and they make way too much money promoting their drugs. This is why Dr Donsbach and Dr Mark Sircus have clinics outside of the United States, because if they even remotely suggest that cancer is curable they will have their licenses revoked and clinics closed down. It is so sad that the American public is unaware of this. Keep up the good word and continue to voice your knowledge. I sure will. Evelyn Davila

I am a huge believer in cause and effect. I practice this philosophy every day. So in fact, I think there is a huge correlation between one's choices and their outcome. However, I would be very careful to not "blame the victim." People who are ill with cancer did not cause the cancer and is not their fault if they cannot "cure" it.

I have been reading about cancer and other ailments for many years now and recently came across a certain Dr. Tullio Simoncini, who claims to cure cancer by infiltrating the affected tissues with sodium bicarbonate (Bicarbonate of Soda; Soda Bic.; baking soda). He suggests that cancer is caused by Candida Albicans, which requires an acidic environment in which to survive and flourish.

Many years ago I stopped believing what my doctors told me, the first instance was when, after three weeks of intensive hospital treatment, for the bite of an Egyptian cobra, with antibiotics and Betadine, my right thumb was condemned to be amputated. Despite warnings that I could lose, in sequence, my right hand, arm and even my life, I chose to go home instead. I poured honey on my very necrotic thumb, wrapped it in plastic film and secured it all with gauze bandage. I left it for 48 hours and then removed the dressing, with no further treatment, I simply poured more honey on it, wrapped it up again and left it for another 48 hours. The result? I still have my thumb and the professor who was in charge of my case was so impressed that she demanded to know how I had done it. I told her and later reports indicated that she had put it to the test and used nothing but honey on any form of necrosis. It is the best treatment for burns, too, despite anything anyone in the medical profession will tell you.
I threw away my asthma medication eight years ago and refuse to take angina pectoris medication because it gives me splitting headaches. Instead, I have gone completely against suggested dietary regimens and eat more fat in a day than most people eat in a month! I use no vegetable oils or margarine, very little sugar (perhaps two tablespoons per month) and eat lots of meat. I have had four slight chest cramps in the past six years, which I combat by breathing deeply until I feel dizzy. That gets rid of it in a hurry.
