Western Medicine Cancer Treatment:

Cancer Cure !  generally speaking a western doctor will never say that the cancer has been cured.  They are more likley to say that the cancer is in remission.  There is no way to find out if every single cancer cell has been destroyed or removed.  They can accuratley see if the cancer cells are decreasing in number !  Remission !


Cancer and Emotions:

it has been found that in a very high percentage of patients sufering from cancer that they experienced a very emotional trying time before the onset of the cancer symptoms.  High levels of stress, depression or anxiety would all fit into this category.


The 5 Emotioinal Responses when Diagnosed with Cancer:

1. Denial - will not accept diagnosis and goes in for 2nd or 3rd opinion

2. Anger - frustrated, irritated and confused, not sure of their next step

3. Agreement - aknowledge their position and try to find information, reading and researching

4. Depression - not wanting to deal with the cancer,extremely depressed

5. Acceptance - able to focuss on a treatment or method and able to accept help from others. 


Cancer and Diet Treatment:

There are so many types of diets out there which confuse us to what is healthy and what is not.  With cancer, switching to a diet which is high in quality and low in quantity can help.  As cancer cels absorb nutrients quickly, a small diet in anti-cancer foods can be beneficial.   Eating a diet large enough to keep the bodies metabolism at a healthy rate but not too much to allow for excess.  Trying to keep an alkaline diet and decreasing acidic foods will help establish a healthier environment which cancer will not live in as easily.
