I am sure you know someone with cancer. It’s almost impossible not to now-a-days. My wife had breast cancer about three years ago. She had surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. There are other people she knows who have had been treated for cancer and the cancer returned a year or two later.
One woman my wife knows (also treated for breast cancer during the same time as my wife) has been diagnosed with endometrial cancer recently. Another woman, similar circumstances, passed away a year ago – almost half my wife’s age. My wife, by the way, recovered totally (as totally as one can expect from cancer). She walked 500 miles across northern Spain as a pilgrimage of thanksgiving a few months ago.
Why do some people get cancer and recover and others don’t? I am not a doctor, nor have I worked in the medical field. I am a researcher. I analyze causes and effect relationships at the cellular level looking for the causes of disease.
I have found some interesting ‘causes’ of cancer – untreated stress, exposure to toxins, exposure to radiation, infection, inflammation, dietary choices and even expectations. By causes, I mean that something causes the DNA to mutate and produce a cell that can develop into a cancer cell. The ‘causes’ I listed above have been identified by researchers as highly probably candidates for DNA mutation.
Most likely it is not a single cause that contributes to the growth and spread of cancer. I believe we all have cancer seeds alive and well in our bodies waiting for that chance to escape dormancy and begin growing. Our immune systems them and keep many other things under control.
In my wife’s case, we figured that the main causes of her cancer were stress and dietary choices. Since her treatment, we have concentrated on addressing those two primarily; and, all the others as a preventive treatment.
Ask a doctor what causes cancer and he/she will tell you that the medical industry doesn’t know. Ask a doctor what to do after successful completion of chemotherapy and radiation and he/she will not be very definitive. They don’t study these areas. They treat the disease, not the cause of the disease, nor the cause of metastasis.
Doesn’t it make sense that if something caused something you should do something so it doesn’t cause it again. If, for instance, that a cancer was caused by toxins, dietary choices and stress that you should avoid those things as much as possible?
Again, I am not a physician. Don’t go to the bank and begin a new treatment based on my research. Just reporting what I believe to be an option for some who do their research. I am sharing what I know and worked for us.
