Two of my close friends are fighting cancer now. One of them has surviving rates very high, even if her life will be a little bit complicated. For my other friend doctors cannot promise long life. Both are looking for a way to surprise the world and stay with their beloved families as long as they possibly can. I promise to do research to find ways to fight and prevent return of cancer. These are my latest findings.
Treating a cut as a localized injury is fine, but cancer is not localized health problem. The tumor is not “the cancer.” The tumor is a symptom of a process that has gone wrong. Cancer is not a thing-that is, it’s not something that one can see or touch. Cancer is a malfunctioning process that produces tumor symptoms.
The focus needs to be on putting out the fire that is, doing things to halt the underlying process that produced the tumor. That process is fueled by:
- A weak immune system and, often, excessive inflammation.
- A deficiency of oxygen and digestive enzymes in the body.
- Overall body chemistry that’s acidic (as opposed to alkaline).
Let us stop responding to cancer as if it were an isolated medical problem. Cancer calls on us to respond holistically by drastically changing the environment within our body so that the underlying process that produces tumor symptoms cannot proceed. To be sure, it’s about how we nourish our body and live out life each day.
