One of my sources for herbs and natural products is Hope For Health. I purchased some green clay from them once and have been receiving their newsletter ever since. In their newsletter is a section titled "Cancer Quotes." This section was so amazing that I contacted them and asked them if I could copy the whole section and post it. As with many natural healing sources, they were more than happy to oblige. They just want to get the word out to anyone who will listen. Here are the quotes:
Polls and questionnaires show that three doctors out of four (75 percent) would refuse any chemotherapy because of its ineffectiveness against the disease and its devastating effects on the entire human organism. This is what many doctors and scientists have to say about chemotherapy:
"The majority of the cancer patients in this country die because of chemotherapy, which does not cure breast, colon or lung cancer. This has been documented for over a decade and nevertheless doctors still utilize chemotherapy to fight these tumors." (Allen Levin, MD, UCSF, "The Healing of Cancer", Marcus Books, 1990).
"If I were to contact cancer, I would never turn to a certain standard for the therapy of this disease. Cancer patients who stay away from these centers have some chance to make it. (Prof. Gorge Mathe, "Scientific Medicine Stymied", Medicines Nouvelles, Paris 1989
"Dr. Hardin Jones, lecturer at the University of California, after having analyzed for many decades statistics on cancer survival, has come to this conclusion: '...when not treated, the patients do not get worse or they even get better'. The unsettling conclusions of Dr. Jones have never been refuted". (Walter Last, "The Ecologist", Vol. 28, no. 2, March-April 1998)
Many Oncologists recommend chemotherapy for almost any type of cancer, with a faith that is unshaken by the almost constant failures". (Albert Braverman, MD, "Medical Oncology in the 90's", Lancet, 1991, Vol. 337, p.
"Our most efficacious regimens are loaded with risks, side effects and practical problems; and after all the patients we have treated have paid the toll, only a miniscule percentage of them is paid off with an ephemeral period of tumoral regression and generally a partial one" (Edward G. Griffin World Without Cancer ", American Media Publications, 1996)
"After all, and for the overwhelming majority of the cases, there is no proof whatsoever that chemotherapy prolongs survival expectations. And this is the great lie about this therapy, that there is a correlation between the reduction of cancer and the extension of the life of the patient". (Phillip Day, "Cancer: Why We're Still Dying to Know the Truth" Credence Publications, 2000)
"Several full-time scientists at the McGill Cancer center sent to 118 doctors, all experts on lung cancer, a questionnaire to determine the level of trust they had in the therapies they were applying; they were asked to imagine that they themselves had contracted the disease and which of the six current experimental therapies they would choose. 79 doctors answered, 64 of them said that they would not consent to undergo any treatment containing cis-platinum - one of the common chemotherapy drugs they used - while 58 out of 79 believed that all the experimental therapies above were not accepted because of the ineffectiveness and the elevated level of toxicity of chemotherapy." (Philip Day, "Cancer: Why We're Still Dying to Know the Truth", Credence Publication, 2000
"Doctor Ulrich Able, a German epidemiologist of the Heidelberg Manheim Tumor Clinic, has exhaustively analyzed and reviewed all the main studies and clinical experiments ever performed on chemotherapy... Able discovered that the comprehensive world rate of positive outcomes because of chemotherapy was frightening, because, simply, nowhere was scientific evidence available demonstrating that chemotherapy is able to 'prolong in any appreciable way the life of patients affected by the most common type of organ cancer.' Able highlights that rarely can chemotherapy improve the quality of life, and he describes it as a scientific squalor while maintaining that at least 80 percent of chemotherapy administered in the world is worthless. Even if there is no scientific proof whatsoever that chemotherapy works, neither doctors nor patients are prepared to give it up (Lancet, Aug. 10 1991). None of the main media has ever mentioned this exhaustive study: it has been completely buried" ( Tim O'Shea, "Chemotherapy- An Unproven Procedure")
"According to medical associations, the notorious and dangerous side effects of drugs have become the fourth main cause of death after infarction, cancer and apoplexy" (Journal of the American Medical Association, April 15, 1998)
Think about it. Natural methods for healing include detoxifying, building the immune system and allowing the body to do the healing using plants and foods that are provided for us in abundance in nature. Modern Medicine's approach to cancer is never to detoxify, but on the other hand, to douse the body with incalculable amounts of carcinogenic toxicity. Am I the only one who thinks that this is incredibly backwards? I side with the naturopaths, nutritionists and enlightened, responsible doctors who firmly believe that the human body can and will heal itself if it is given the right tools and conditions. I love this recent post by Celebrity Nutritionist Kimberly Snyder - it's a must read! Here's a quote from a brilliant man who was far ahead of his time: "Leave your drugs in the chemist's pot if you can cure the patient with food." - Hippocrates. Just some food for thought.
