Cancer is embedded deep in human consciousness, it is estimated that 8 million people worldwide die of the disease each year, the word cancer can strike deep into our psyche and play on our fears of the illness and the cures.
Until recently being diagnosed with cancer was normally terminal for the patient as the medical profession was still at a loss to know how to keep the disease under control. Cancer starts when the cells start to grow out of control all cancers start this way and the cells become abnormal, in most cases the body will produce a tumour, in leukaemia it will develop in the blood. There is another school of thought it suggests that cancer is a fungus caused by Candida which is thought to be a yeast like substance in the body.
A healthy body starts with a good diet, to keep the body well your diet should consist of 60% alkaline food and 40% acid forming, in today’s society we consume far too much refined sugars and processed food, with aspartame being the most toxic to the body, Some examples of alkaline food are mushrooms, watercress, tomatoes and garlic. It is worth investigating this school of thought and the internet has some great articles about this subject.
Although billions of pounds are poured into research to help find a cure we still use chemotherapy which is an invasive method of attempting to kill the cancer cells. Chemotherapy destroys the cancer but also has a devastating effect on the immune system. What we are given is in actual fact a poison to our body, the pharmaceutical companies make billions of pounds from the drugs.
Many people are waking up to the idea that there may be other alternatives to the problem, holistic practitioners know the connection between mind and body, many people change to a macrobiotic diet this allows the body to become more alkaline as cancer cannot survive in those conditions.
I have included below a brief synopsis written by one of my clients the day she received the news about having cancer and how she decided to take control of her situation, with the help of medical, healer, holistic and spiritual she is now clear of Cancer……..
Whilst attending an ultrasound appointment to look at what I thought was a breast cyst (I already had a few) I was told I needed a biopsy because the lump looked ‘suspicious’. I’d decided to go to the appointment on my own so was given the option to wait until my husband could attend, but decided to go ahead, although I was extremely distressed. A few days later it was confirmed, despite me quietly hoping otherwise that it was a cancer. My husband was with me but said nothing as the specialist gave me the diagnosis of a fairly rare, aggressive breast cancer.
I went into a kind of short but intense shock as I was told, forgetting to breathe for a few moments. After feeling like I was going to faint and putting my head between my knees I suddenly experienced an enormous surge of strength and went into an almost business-like state, taking control of the appointment. I remember walking over to an examination bed which made me physically higher that my husband and the doctor, sitting down on it and starting to direct proceedings.
After I left the hospital I went home and phoned everyone I knew, going into a sort of trance as I had the same conversation over and over. I spent the next week or so talking virtually all day every day, releasing the stress as I went. Although without a conscious plan, I was assembling a ‘team’, a homeopath, healer, best buddy, surgeon and several extra mums. I had a sense that somehow this experience had a purpose and a positive side and I lurched from intense feelings of panic and terror to inspiration and optimism until the fear reduced.
There are some brilliant and brave people in the world working and challenging the norm to bring cures for this disease, as statistics show by the year 2030 it is set to rise to twelve million worldwide. There are some amazing books on the market about this subject and they are well worth reading.
