Cancer was a relatively rare disease at the start of the 20th century and has become an epidemic and the leading cause of death in most countries around the world.
a. Finding a Malignant Tumor
Many patients describe the moment they physically felt a lump in their body, one that after testing was diagnosed as a malignant tumor. With other patients, the lump is not palpated but is detected in imaging tests (CT, PET, sonar, etc.) as a mass on the various organs, such as a mass in the intestines, a mass on the lungs, a mass in the liver, etc.
Patients describe the moment they first felt or saw the cancerous growth as though they had been hit upside the head.
b. The Significance of a Malignant Tumor
The significance of detecting a malignant tumor in the body is obvious to most anyone these days nowadays. It initially means that the diagnosed patient is going to face a difficult period: undergoing treatments such as surgeries, radiation, chemotherapy, and more. During this period, the patient puts behind their daily lifestyle, work, family life, recreational activities, etc. in order to dedicate their time to fighting the cancer so that the malignant tumor growth can be stopped, reduced in size and eventually eliminated.
Malignant tumors require great sacrifice both on the part of the patient and their family members and friends, whose support they need most during difficult times, harsh treatments and bad news.
C. Complementary Cancer Therapy
Cancer treatment currently consists of conventional treatments usually administered in the hospital. Surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, immunotherapy, biological treatments, etc. have in recent years improved cancer patient survival rates. But, in a significant number of patients the cancer is resistant to treatments, and will not be eliminated and might even continue to progress.
That is why today over 80% of patients combine additional treatment methods, alternative cancer treatments, as an integrated and in-separated part of their course of treatments. These methods include body cleansing and detox, getting rid of some of the factors connected with cancer formation that interfere with other adjunctive therapies. Dietary treatments allow the patient to avoid foods that promote cancer cell activity and instead consume foods containing anti-cancer chemicals.
An important aspect of cancer treatment is changing our habits. Smokers must quit smoking, those consuming alcohol must reduce their consumption or stop drinking altogether, and overweight patients must lose weight. Regular physical activity is recommended for the duration of treatments and thereafter.
Reducing stress, improving sleep quality, meditation, etc. also affect the immune system through the mind-body system.
Food supplements such as vitamins, minerals, medicinal herbs and other substances also directly affect the immune system and cancer cells activity.
Other treatments, such as hyperthermia, galvanotherapy, intravenous administration of high concentration dose vitamins and medicinal herbs, B17 treatments (amygdalin), Iscador, and other substances considered to affect malignant tumors, have all become accepted treatments currently administered around the world in special medical centers and are also called adjunctive complementary cancer treatments.
d. Cancerous Mass
The diagnosis of a cancerous mass is not the end of the road. Wise use of all treatment methods together with patient resolve, family support, determination, the support of physicians and all medical personnel, are all a must and constitute the only way to overcome this difficult disease and changing its course and intentions.
