Senior Naturopath David Holden offers ten things to think about if you have been diagnosed with cancer.
- Change your diet – cut out all sugars from processed & packaged foods, fizzy drinks, milk chocolate and any form of added sugar as it feeds cancer cells directly and is the #1 dietary intervention for ALL types of cancer. You can use Stevia safely instead but all other sweeteners need to be used very sparingly if you are serious about reversing cancer!
- Unload your emotional / mental stresses by using various Mind-Body techniques like Meditation, Prayer, Tai Chi, Yoga, Qi Gung, Massage, etc. We have experts that can help you with this well trained in a wide variety of Mind-Body techniques just ask! Learn Meditation: visit www.fragrantheart.com and do their FREE 5 day email “how to meditate course”.
- Take several specific high quality dietary supplements that will support, boost and activate your immune competence quickly like Vit C, Vit D3, Selenium, Zinc, ALA, NAC and a wide variety of Medicinal Herbal Medicines that need to be tailor made specifically for your case, there is NO one size fits all with cancer!
- Ask for professional help! You wouldn’t try and fix a complex modern motor vehicle that needs to be hooked up to a sophisticated diagnostic computer1 as you wouldn’t have the equipment or the knowledge. Go to reputable well qualified and experienced practitioners who know what they are talking about and have a proven track record of help with your specific type of cancer. If in doubt, ASK!
- Start exercising if you aren’t already. Research clearly shows that women who have had a brush with breast cancer can reduce their reoccurrence by 40% on average with just 45 mins of Cardio exercise DAILY. Why isn’t this taught in Medical Oncology wards throughout the world? Because no money can be made from it or any exercises patented for profit that’s why! Watch and learn about HIIT on YouTube
- Get real about the side effects of conventional Medical Oncology treatments as most are very toxic and will shorten life. Chemotherapy is extremely profitable for drug companies and money is a very strong motivator to use it and many doctors pressure patients to have it with no other options offered. This is an insult to our intelligence as unfortunately chemo on its own is largely ineffective according to a 5 year Meta-Analysis done by Dr Ralph Moss and like antibiotics is overused by Oncologists world-wide for a wide range of reasons too detailed to go into here. This does NOT include the new Immuno-Therapy drugs (e.g. Keytruda for Melanoma and lung cancer) that are proven performers and do save and lengthen life significantly at a price. Most are well into 5 figures for a month’s supply so unless you have comprehensive health insurance or a fat bank account these therapies are largely unaffordable by most people, unless funded by the tax payer which more and more are. If in doubt, ASK your Medical Oncologist!
- Balance your pH as cancer thrives in an acid environment. We have sophisticated testing strips and pleasant and safe tasting Alkalising powders and sachets that work well and quickly to help until lifestyle interventions kick in reducing the need for these in many cases with the appropriate repeat testing and measuring.
- Do explore the wide range of Alternative and Complementary therapies that are out there for cancer as many are very effective at symptom control and management and many will help stimulate a remission in many cases if the cancer is treated in the early stages (1 & 2). Those most effective according the WHO are TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture), Hypnotherapy / Mind-Body Medicine and Dietary, Nutrition and Naturopathic Lifestyle interventions as most of these broach the causes of the cancer not just treat the symptoms.
- Detoxification is a vital part of a Holistic Treatment Regime with all types of cancer. Many cancers are caused by Xenobiotic toxins like Pesticides, Insecticides, Heavy Metals, Solvents, Exhaust fumes and the myriad of over 4.7 Billion other toxic chemicals that are all too common in our modern 21st Century environment. Most exposures are preventable or at least treatable but unfortunately are largely ignored by Western Medical Oncology. These can be accurately detected and removed with sophisticated testing and treatment in expert hands. This is what we do best at Holden HealthCare!
- Get specific Naturopathic Oncology & Integrative Medical Treatments for cancer that have a scientific evidence base and are proven to work like Mega dose IVC & Vit D3 / GSH / GcMAF / Medicinal Cannabis / Ozone / B17 Laetrile / Salvesterols / Artemesin / TBL-12 / MMS, etc. Every case is different and needs expert help to tailor make a program for you and your specific case. If you don’t know about these you owe it to yourself to educate yourself about them as most Medical Oncologists have no idea how effective these treatments are because they are not trained in their use unfortunately!
