Effectiveness of Chemotherapy
In 1985, a professor of microbiology at the Harvard University School of Public Health, John Cairns, M.D. published a seminal article on the war on cancer in Scientific American in which he showed that chemotherapy was able to save the life of only 2 to 3% of cancer patients. Despite the overwhelming investment the medical community had made in Chemotherapy, he said, it was not capable of defeating any of the common cancers. Chemo is a systemic poison, it affects every cell and tissue of the entire body.
The next year John C. Bailar III, M.D. Ph.D published a landmark study in the New England Journal of Medicine Dr. Bailar was held in extremely high regard in medical circles, as he was the former editor of The Journal of the National Cancer Institute and was now the Department of Biostatistics at the Harvard School of Public Health. Simply looking hard and long at the data Dr. Bailar said, had compelled him to loose faith in chemotherapy, and indeed in the entire war on cancer. “Some 35 years of intense and growing efforts to improve the treatment of cancer has not had much overall effect on the most fundamental measure of clinical outcome – death. Overall the effort to control cancer has failed, so far, to attain its objectives”.
In 1990 another ranking member of the cancer establishment Dr. Ulrich Abel, biostatistician at the Institute for Epidemiology and Biometry at the University of Heidelberg, Germany went a step further. While Cairns and Bailar had shown that chemotherapy could do nothing to cure most forms of cancer, many in the cancer community believed the chemo drugs extended life. Abel had for years studied the effectiveness of chemotherapy and his attitude had been basically sympathetic. But now, in the most comprehensive study ever undertaken of cancer chemotherapy he stated “A sober and unprejudiced analysis of the literature has rarely revealed any therapeutic success …. There is no evidence for the vast majority of cancers that treatment with these drugs exerts any positive influence on survival or quality of life.” This notoriously toxic and expensive treatment he said was not only rarely a cure but in the vast majority of cases actually had no beneficial effect whatsoever on a patient’s outcome.
Ivan IIIich – Medical Nemesis “There is little evidence of effective treatment of most cancers. The 5 year survival of breast cancer cases is 50% regardless of the frequency of medical check ups and treatments used. Nor is there evidence that the rate differs from the that amongst untreated women. Although practicing doctors and the publicists of the medical establishment stress the importance of early detection and treatment of this and several other types of cancer, epidemiologists have begun to doubt that early intervention can alter the rate of survival. Studies show untreated cancer sufferers live up to 4 times longer than treated individuals.
In 1981 an article in These Times by Ellen Cantarow states chemo drugs are highly toxic to bone marrow, lungs, kidneys, heart and stomach. They cause horrible nausea and erode the lining of the mouth and throat.
What Causes Cancer
The main cause of Cancer is Carcinogens in the Environment such as: Tobacco, Alcohol, Processed Foods, Toxins in Drugs (eg. extended use of Benzodiazepines and other central nervous system depressants increase your risk of brain, colorectal and lung cancers), X-Rays, Dyes, Food Colourings, Pesticides etc. Other factors include Genetics and Stress.
All the commonly used alkylating agents including the nitrogen mustards HN2 and HN3, treatamine (TFM) chlorambucil, sacrolysin and melphalan and busulphan (byleran) can induce cancer when given in animal studies.
If we accumulate carcinogenic toxins in our body without any correction a state of inflammation will take place which goes through 7 stages. The final 7th stage is Cancer.
Sometimes removing the cause, can be a cure.
Cancer is a very old disease, it existed several million years ago, a dinosaur was found in Wyoming and they discovered cancer in the bones. Also around 500 BC Arsenic pastes were used to treat cancerous growths.
Chemotherapy was first used on 27th August 1942. The first chemo drug was Nitrogen Mustard, the compound used to make Mustard Gas, the first patient was quite ill with advanced cancer and died 6 months later.
If the cancer has advanced well into the 7th stage it may not be possible to reverse. Fasting and following an alkaline or raw unprocessed diet will halt and slow the progression of the cancer. The individual will feel more comfortable with little or no pain.
Fasting and Raw Food diet is an effective means to restore health along with following the Health Laws of Life: Rest, Sunshine, Fresh Air, Relaxation, Exercise, Nature, Diet, Sleep, Water, Managing Stress.
The body creates an autolytic process when fasting which removes dead and useless tissues. It can also build and destroy tissue. Tumors are flesh, blood and bone Frances Carter Wood “Fasting can and does remove tumors.”
When the human body is hungry, it eats itself, it does a cleansing process, removing all sick cells, cancer, aging cells and Alzheimers. Keeping young and fighting diabetes. Making special proteins that only form under certain circumstances. And when they are made, the body selectively gathers around dead cancer cells, dissolves them and restores the state from which the organism benefits. This is what recycling looks like. Scientists have found through long and specialized research that the process of autophagy requires atypical conditions that force the body to do this process. These conditions consist of abstaining from eating or drinking for 16 hours (cycle 8/16). A human should function normally during this period. This process should be repeated for some time to reach the body for maximum use and not let sick cells reactivate. It is recommended to do this 2 or 3 days per week. In 2016 Yoshinori Ohsumi won the Nobel Prize in medicine for discovering autophagy is switched on via nutrient deprivation. During this time, macrophage activity increases. Macrophages engulf and destroy bacteria and other foreign substances but they also ingest worn-out or abnormal body cells.
Dr. Otto H. F. Buchinger has supervised 70,000 fasts and states “Fasting is a royal road to healing for anyone who agrees to take it for the recovery and regeneration of the body.”
Fasting gives the glandular, digestive, circulatory, respiratory and nervous systems a rest. When you abstain from food the glands of the mouth and stomach, the liver and pancreas rest. This rest is an opportunity for your body to do for itself what it cannot do under conditions of full activity.
A 24 hour fast just taking water and no food is beneficial to you:
- To lower blood pressure
- To lower your cholesterol level
- To clean out your body
- To give your digestive system a rest
- To give your body time to heal itself
- To relieve nervousness and tension
- To sleep better
- To regulate your bowels providing better elimination
- To make you more alert
