Treatment or Not

Has anyone ever asked themselves this question?  Were you alone in your decision making? How did you finally decide?

Hi Sickntired,

My point of view: Any illness calls for a treatment response - but the dilemma, especially around cancer, is what kind of treatment? From your profile I see that you have gone the mainline route as, understandably, many people do.

But there are alternatives. I resolved that, if ever I received a cancer diagnosis, I would stay away from surgery, radiation and chemo'therapy'. As a child I experienced my mother being 'treated' for leukaemia. She died in 1957. I believe that the quality of her dying was severely compromised by the treatment she received - and that's putting it mildly. I believe that it is more likely the radiation and chemicals that killed her rather than the cancer itself.

I've only been faced with the treatment question once. Like you I had a melanoma on my back. Fortunately my doctor noticed it by chance. He recommended that it be surgically removed - cut out. I instead stood my ground and went through a course of bloodroot/black salve treatment that did a nice clean job of drawing the cancer out. The large hole healed itself in a matter of months. I also refused a biopsy. Black salve is inactive unless cancer cells are present. Clearly there was a large area of cancer once the job had been done - much of it had been under the surface skin.

A decision to go a non-medical route usually encounters a lot of opposition. I had two doctors who tried to convince me I was mad. The web site of our New Zealand Health Authority has a section on black salve with a warning not to use it under any circumstances. There are horrific photos to back up the warning! Sure - like many treatments, care needs to be taken. In my case I found a qualified medical doctor who was prepared to supervise the treatment. I don't recommend the use of black salve without professional medical supervision.

So please decide to treat your situation. But please look at the alternatives - and there are alternative ways to deal with cancer, including cancer in the lung. The Cancer Tutor web site is a good place to start if you decide to go that route. You will need to devote a lot of time to your treatment including the likelihood of a complete change of nutrition and lifestyle. You will need courage. If you can find a Holistic Medical Practitioner then that would be a very worthwhile support. And even if you die, which I believe we all need to do at some stage, then it will be a better death than one whereby you submitted your body and soul to the 'system' and its ways - as helpful as these ways may appear to be for some people.

I send you my best wishes,

Rev Kev

If you have a death wish, forget treatment.

If you want to live, get treatment ASAP.  I mean mainstream medical treatment.  My wife is now in remission after 4.5 years of Stage 4 lung cancer, treated with Opdivo.  Former president Carter is doing well after treatment of metastatic melanoma brain tumors at over 90 years of age, treated with Keytruda.  My friend is in remission from leukemia by a top oncologist in Seattle.  I could go on and on.  Many significant advances have been made over the last 5-10 years especailly with targeted drugs and the new immunology drugs.  We are at the leading of improving advanced cancer survival.

Ignore the avalanche of phoney claims for supplimetns, special foods, miracle juices, vitamins, Mexican miracle clinics, holistic/homeopathic quacks and on and on with the seamingly honest testamonials.  They are all missleading you and many are making lots of money off you.  Ignore posts like from the mad poster above.  Comparing leukemia trearment from 1957, 60 yeras ago is nonsense. 

There is hope.  Go to the best canecr treatment center near you, usually in a large metro cancer clinic many times connected with a large hospital and/or medical school.
