In the United States there are only two approved treatments for cancer;these include radiation treatment and chemotherapy. This is a shame given the fact that a number of people are having success using alternative treatments. Despite that fact, this type of route for cancer treatment is still very shunned by the mainstream medical community, but it doesn’t make much sense as to why.
It doesn’t make sense because chemotherapy statistics show that it’s only 2 (approximate) percent effective towards 5 year survival. It’s been known for a very long time that that Oncologists, doctors who recommend cancer treatments, have varied in their willingness to undergo cancer therapies, as illustrated in a study published by the British Journal of Medicine (source) more than a decade ago. In 1985, a survey found that only about one-third of physicians and oncology nurses would have consented to chemotherapy for non-small-cell lung cancer. Today, willingness to undergo cancer treatment by doctors who prescribe it is still lacking, although a decent percentage would undergo treatment, many have still stated that they would not, but there is not much research available since the studies that were conducted many years ago.
These doctors are not alone in their thoughts, as the increase in patients refusing traditional cancer treatment continues to increase. (source) A very recent study showing that approximately 90 percent of doctors would refuse cancer treatment if they were terminally ill, meaning that their disease is perceived as incurable and they were expected to pass away. (source)
As mentioned above, although chemotherapy has saved lives, it’s also done the opposite, and it has an extremely low success rate. The medical community continues to ignore other available treatments that people are having success with. If we look at these treatments and the statistics for them, we won’t find anything. If a study was done examining the success rate of alternative treatments, it would no doubt, in my opinion, be higher than the success rate of chemotherapy. This type of statistic would absolutely destroy the cancer industry.
The idea that conventional cancer treatment is rarely effective and exists primarily for the benefit of the cancer industry itself is not far fetched. It’s hard on the body, and in many cases cancer stem cells are generated by the therapy itself, which are resistant to conventional therapy. In breast cancer, radiation treatment just drives breast cancer cells into greater malignancy and can make them up to 30 times more malignant. (source)
When it comes to actual cancer research, Ph.d, and two time Nobel Prize winner in chemistry, Linus Pauling said it best when he stated that “everyone should know that most cancer research is largely a fraud, and that the major cancer research organizations are derelict in their duties to the people who support them. (source)
Here is another great quote to get my point across, this time from Ralph Moss, Ph.D., as quoted by John Diamond, M.D., and Lee Cowden, M.D. in Alternative Medicine, in their book: The Definitive Guide To Cancer
The field of U.S. cancer care is organized around a medical monopoly that ensures a continuous flow of money to the pharmaceutical companies, medical technology firms, research institutes, and government agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the National Cancer institute (NCI) and quasi-public organizations such as the American Cancer Society (ACD)
As mentioned earlier, despite the fact that many doctors would refuse conventional treatment, when confronted with a cancer patient they have no choice but to offer it, regardless of their beliefs, which they do not share. Not recommending these treatments could lead to a lawsuit and a loss of medical license. Doesn’t seem quite right does it?
Lorraine Jeanette day is one example out of many, a former orthopaedic trauma surgeon and Chief of Orthopaedic Surgery at San Francisco. She did her research, used alternative treatment and now is a heavy promoter of alternative cancer treatments.
The list goes on and on, whether it’s specific constituents within cannabis, which have shown to annihilate cancer cells for decades, or something else, these treatments have been working for some people, but not all. Just as with chemotherapy, people can pass away by selecting the alternative route. But ask yourself this, if so many other substances, like cannabis, have shown to have tremendous antitumoral properties, why aren’t there any clinical trials being conducted? When a pharmaceutical drug shows half as much promise, clinical trials are set up right away.
These are few things to thing about when it comes to cancer treatment in general, and despite the constant ridicule by the mainstream medical industry about ‘alternative’ cancer treatments, they do show promise, and I believe, much more promise than chemotherapy. Below is a great video by Kimberly Carter Gamble that illustrates what many people are feeling today.
12 Essential Oils That Can Help Fight Cancer, Boost Immunity and Improve Feelings Of Well-Being.
***Some of the studies cited here are in vivo, others are in vitro. We need to talk more about cancer prevention, and it’s well established in scientific literature that there are certain dietary changed you can make to drastically reduce your chances of contracting cancer. These measures including incorporating more cancer killing organic fruits and vegetables into your diet on a daily basis, exercise, and more. Below is a list of nine essential oils you can also use, but it requires much more and you need to do your research.
Numerous studies have pointed out how more people are turning towards these methods for cancer prevention and treatment, which is why, although they show promise, much more research is needed to find out more about different cancer, dosages, etc.
Here is a great publication to illustrate what I mean:
When peper was tested independently, in was shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anticancer activities in cell studies. Research has also found that pipeline in combination with green tea (polyphenol epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), it increases the bioavailability of EGCG.
According to Joshua Lambert, PhD, Associate Professor of Food Science at Penn State University and lead researcher in the study, they found that when they gave mice EGCG together with pepper, they could increase the amount of compound that got into the blood and into some of the tissues compared to just giving them EGCG alone.They have a study going on right now that AICR funded where they are studying human subjects looking at the same bioavailability markers and they are seeing improved bioavailability in people. (source)
The pepper dose used was 230 mg, just one-eight of a teaspoon of black pepper.
Dozens of papers have been published outlining cinnamaldehyde’s ability to inhibit tumour cell death and cancer cell apoptosis. This number could be in the hundreds. A simple google search of scholarly articles and publications regarding cinnamon and its anti-cancer properties will make this clear.
One study points out how “spices, active ingredients of Indian cooking, may play important roles in prevention and treatment of various cancers.” It’s not the only one to do so, and this is well established in scientific literature. Clove oil actually contains up to 30 x more anti-oxidants than blueberries, which helps reduce free radical damage. Another study showed how “clove has different capacity to cause cell death in various cancerous cell lines of human origin.” (source)
Oregano extract has been shown to “lead to growth arrest and cell death in a dose- and time-dependent manner” in colon cancer cells. A phytochemical in oregano, carnosol, has also been “evaluated for anti-cancer property in prostate, breast, skin, leukemia, and colon cancer with promising results.” Oregano extract has also been shown to have anti-timor effects on metazoic breast cancer cells lines. (source)(source)
It also provides antioxidants that boost the immune system, and has one of the highest antioxidant activity ratings, with 42 time more than that of an apple .
Here is a good publication that has a section of Cardamom, it outline several health benefits from inhibiting chemical carcinogenesis to its known antioxidant properties. It’s also been shown to have anti-cancer properties as well, which is illustrated by multiple studies. Here is one of them.
A plant-based herb whose bulb doubles as a vegetable packed with nutritional value. As an herb, fennel has been used for decades both as a spice in the preparation of various meals and even medicinally as a cure for various ailments. Combined with its use as a vegetable fennel has been linked to help with respiratory disorders, menstrual disorders, colic, indigestion and eye care just to name a few.
One study pointed out how the extract showed “remarkable anticancer potential against a breast cancer cell line and liver cancer cell line. It also showed strong free radical-scavenging activity.” (source)
Another outlines how “compiled data indicate their efficacy in several in vitro and in vivo pharmacological properties such as antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antimutagenic, antinociceptive, antipyretic, antispasmodic, antithrombotic, apoptotic, cardiovascular, chemomodulatory, antitumor, hepatoprotective, hypoglycemic, hypolipidemic, and memory enhancing property.” (source)
Frankincense has been shown to kill bladder, breast, and skin cancer cells.
One study found that:
“Frankincense essential oils prepared by hydrodistillation of gum resins from Boswellia species contain complex chemical constituents and possess anti-cancer activity. Frankincense essential oil activates arrays of genes and pathways that suppress the growth and induce the apoptosis of established human cancer cell lines of different tissue origins. Besides boswellic acids, frankincense essential oil-induced anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic activities in tumour cells may result from high-molecular-weight compound.”
Wild thyme has been used to induce cell death in breast cancer cells. After 72 hours of treatment, thyme essential oil killed 98 percent of human breast cancer cells, with researchers concluding wild thyme “may be a promising candidate in the development of novel therapeutic drugs for breast cancer treatment.” This is one example of a study where thyme has shown anti-tumoral properties. (source)
Research has shown that rosemary can help prevent cancer and other age-related diseases. It has caffein acid and rosemarinic acid, which are moth powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents. They help protect the body’s cells from damage by free radicals, as do the the substances mentioned above. It’s also rich in carnosol, which has been found to detoxify substance that can initiate the breast=cancer process. It’s also very rich in vitamin E. (source)
Clary sage has been shown anticancer effects against breast cancer cells lines, lung cancer cell lines, and prostate cancer cell lines. (source). It also causes direct anti-cancer cytotoxicity in subcutaneous tumour bearing mice. (source)
Family Constellation Therapy & It’s Role In Healing Autism
- The Facts:
Trans-generational traumas add to our toxic burden and predispose us to illness. Misfortune or unresolved conflict in our ancestry can create disturbances which filter down into the psyche, nervous system and metabolic functioning.
- Reflect On:
What conflict exists in your ancestry? Could it be impacting your family's health?
Family Constellation Therapy, sometimes known as Systemic Constellations, was created by Bert Hellinger, a German psychotherapist. This amazing method is used to uncover the source of chronic conditions, illnesses and emotional difficulties that may have roots in the inter-generational family systems, rather than the individual, and may be connected to a key stress event.
Could resolving past family trauma help unlock the symptoms known as autism? Sadly, some form of autism is now observed in 1 in 55 children and is growing at a rate of more than 1,100 percent. Western medicine focuses on medication to suppress symptoms and alternative approaches focus on treating the underlying biomedical, physical, psychological and environmental causes of autism.
However, illness not only originates in our physical body, but can also originate in our energetic and spiritual body as well. So, it becomes imperative that we treat the entire person for a fuller recovery.
“Autism spectrum disorders can only be fully healed by restoring the self-regulation of the system and making it fully functional.” – Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt
This moving and powerful work in the family’s energetic field is also referred to as “the knowing field.” And, is used to examine the emotional factors connected to conditions such as illness, allergies, alcoholism, ADHD and autism. Some parents of children on the autism spectrum have experienced profound transformations as a result of this work for themselves, as well as for their families.
These children are often the recipients of unhealed trans-generational family issues because of their extraordinary energetic sensitivities. This perpetuates their illness.
Family constellation therapy work, focuses deeper on the ancestral family blueprint – the family soul. Our souls carry information from one lifetime to the next and from one generation to the next.
Children often hold the energetic field of their ancestors. This appears especially true with children with autism, because they are super-sensitive and spiritual souls. Who, often become unconsciously entangled with others in their family in the name of belonging or wanting to help restore balance in their family system. The purpose of a Family Constellation therapy session is to reveal that hidden dynamic and point the way toward resolution. And, there are often magical improvements in these children when we resolve issues in the family history.
The Forgotten One
One of the participants in a group “Michelle,” has a brother with severe autism who couldn’t speak and was very self-destructive. She was afraid that he could never live a more “normal” life because he refused all biomedical treatment and other therapies offered to him. In the initial set-up, the facilitator had Michelle, her brother, and both parents of her family represented in “the field.”
The participant representing her brother was hiding under a nearby chair and was rocking back and forth. Both parents were standing in the field, seemingly disinterested in what was going on. The sister (Michelle) kept looking down at the floor. Later in the set-up, it was revealed that the sister was looking down at a baby—a baby who had died of birth defects three generations ago. This baby hadn’t been properly acknowledged or mourned.
In essence, the brother with autism had taken the place of the “forgotten” baby. Representatives for the great-grandparents (the forgotten baby’s parents) were brought into “the field.” Then, the baby was embraced by the parents and a short dialogue was exchanged. The baby reported that he felt more at ease, relaxed and became more comfortable. A healing took place that was so profound. A year later, “Michelle” reported that her brother was starting to take a more active role in his recovery and was beginning to accept treatment.
War and Mental Illness
“Andrew,” a man in his twenties who was diagnosed with Asperger’s, participated in my group. He claimed that mental illness and psychosis ran in his family. He cried as he explained that he was taking multiple medications for bi-polar disorder. He claimed it was difficult for him to hold down a job. He often felt very alone. He stated that he did not have a good relationship with his parents. He said that his mom was “crazy.” The parents divorced when he was very small and he blames himself and his issues for why they split.
In the initial set-up of “his field,” Andrew was represented along with mental illness and his parents. As it unfolded, it became more obvious that something profound had happened in the past. Mental illness began taking on characteristics of a war and hidden dynamics were revealing themselves.
Later in the set-up, Andrew’s representative started choking, like he was trying to catch his breath. He was mumbling, “I deserve death because I have killed others.”
It was uncovered that his great-great grandfather was in World War I and was killed during a mustard gas attack. Andrew was doing service to the family out of deep love. He took on the feelings of the victim and the perpetrator, which caused him deep inner conflict. Hence, he was carrying the burden of mental illness and autism. In doing this soul work, Andrew was able to find resolution for himself as well as all the members of his family.
In conclusion, trans-generational traumas add to our toxic burden and predispose us to illness. Misfortune or unresolved conflict in our ancestry can create disturbances in the family field, which filter down into the psyche, nervous system and metabolic functioning. Children with health issues are particularly sensitive to such disturbances.
Therapy and biomedical interventions may even succeed better after a healing Family Constellation session with an experienced facilitator. Fortunately, it is never too late to heal wounds from the past. Constellation work is unique in that any living family member can do this intervention for the benefit of all.

What If Everything We Know About Depression Was Wrong? [Video]
- The Facts:
There is a lot more to depression than currently meets the eye. If it is a chemical imbalance in the brain, then there is still something that is causing it. It's time to dig deeper and shed some light on this issue that affects millions worldwide.
- Reflect On:
Why are we more depressed now more than ever? Our current society isn't set up for us all to have a fair chance of living the best possible life imaginable.
It is no secret, the amount of people who are suffering from mild to severe depression is astronomical, at an all-time high. In fact, the World Health Organization estimates that over 300 Million people around the world have some form of depression. Not to mention many sufferers go undiagnosed. What is going on here? Science tells us that depression is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain, but why are we seeing the rise illness at such alarming rates? Perhaps, it’s time to rethink what we think we know about depression.
Is it possible that it is not our brains that are causing us to be depressed, but rather our society? We do not have our basic needs met, we have to work hard to afford to live, often doing jobs in which we have no passion for. We have debt that keeps us completely enslaved to this whole never-ending cycle, and through all this, we are expected to be feel good?
Whether we are working a job with a 6-figure salary or a minimum wage job, many of us are still depressed. Money won’t make us happy, although this is what we are often led to believe. Even those pulling in large salaries find it difficult to find the time to spend with their families, or do something that they are passionate about or brings them joy.
Why are we the only species on the planet that has to pay for our food, water, and shelter? This is such a simple question that is rarely asked.
Now this isn’t to say we blame our society for how we feel, because ultimately WE have control over how we feel. It’s simply that our environment makes it no easier. True peace, is found within, yet our society is pushed to be so distracted that we find little time to go within and find that peace. Instead we’re in constant survival mode.
Opening Up The Dialogue
The video below is a brilliant explanation by author, Johann Hari. He describes an alternate view of what is really causing us to be so depressed in the first place. He has suffered from depression as well and was convinced that this issue was all in his head — the chemical imbalance we hear so much about. He felt it was a sign of weakness and was ashamed of his condition.
After being prescribed anti-depressant medication and being on the highest dose possible, Hari was still suffering. This is what led him to realize that there had to be more to this issue than a chemical imbalance. After all, what kept causing these feelings to reemerge?
Check out the video below to hear the insight he’s gained after years of studying the true causes of depression.
Where Do We Go From Here?
By talking about this issue, in-depth, and opening up this dialogue, perhaps we can gain new insight in regards to what we can actually do to begin to try and solve this problem. We don’t have to live a life of despair and hopelessness, there are solutions to this issue and at the very least it’s worth a shot, especially when it seems as though all else has failed.
If there is a chemical imbalance within the brain, something has caused that, and as said in the video, there are a number of different things that may be contributing to that. Lack of nature, connection, purpose, holding on to grief, shame, and trauma. As mentioned, we also spend little time turning within and truly reflecting on self. This is probably the greatest relief found in moving beyond depression.
Can we find out what is truly ailing us in order to let it go so we can move on with our lives and thrive as we were meant to?
U.S. Hesitates To Approve Resolution To Promote Breastfeeding In Order To Protect Corporate Interests
- The Facts:
At a World Health Organization meeting, The U. S. Delegation was the sole objector to a resolution to encourage breast-feeding, in favor of corporate interests.
- Reflect On:
When will we, as a collective, be able to take our power back from corporations so that they can no longer have a negative influence on the health and well-being of humanity?
Let me know if you’ve seen this playing out in the geopolitical arena before:
- A proposal is made to a large governing body that is in the interests of humanity
- A state power objects because the proposal is not in the particular interests of corporate sponsors of that state power
- A battle ensues, where the virtually self-evident truths of what is of interest to humanity are countered by arguments of cunning deceptive pretense
- Whoever is most powerful wins the battle regardless of the cogency or sincerity of their respective arguments
Familiar? Sure it is. It plays out weekly in the headlines, across a swath of issues of human concern: our health, safety, freedom, and prosperity. Let’s take a look at the latest example concerning a breastfeeding resolution made recently to the World Health Organization.
1. The Proposal
According to this New York Times article, a resolution to encourage breast-feeding was expected to be approved quickly and easily by the hundreds of government delegates who gathered this spring in Geneva for the United Nations-affiliated World Health Assembly. Based on decades of research, the resolution says that mother’s milk is healthiest for children and countries should strive to limit the inaccurate or misleading marketing of breast milk substitutes.
Elisabeth Sterken, director of the Infant Feeding Action Coalition in Canada, said four decades of research have established the importance of breast milk, which provides essential nutrients as well as hormones and antibodies that protect newborns against infectious disease.
A 2016 study in The Lancet found that universal breast-feeding would prevent 800,000 child deaths a year across the globe and yield $300 billion in savings from reduced health care costs and improved economic outcomes for those reared on breast milk.
It is a matter of debate whether the World Health Organization is fundamentally working on behalf of humanity, but in the case of this resolution, it appears that its passing would clearly have both health and economic benefits for the people of the planet.
2. The Objection
Before the resolution was brought to the floor the United States delegation, embracing the interests of infant formula manufacturers, upended the deliberations. American officials sought to water down the resolution by removing language that called on governments to “protect, promote and support breast-feeding” and another passage that called on policymakers to restrict the promotion of food products that many experts say can have deleterious effects on young children.
The State Department declined to respond to questions, saying it could not discuss private diplomatic conversations. However the Department of Health and Human Services, the lead agency in the effort to modify the resolution, explained in an email that,
“The resolution as originally drafted placed unnecessary hurdles for mothers seeking to provide nutrition to their children. We recognize not all women are able to breast-feed for a variety of reasons. These women should have the choice and access to alternatives for the health of their babies, and not be stigmatized for the ways in which they are able to do so.”
Ah, the care and concern over human welfare by the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services is heart-warming, especially as an organization so fastidiously sucking the golden teet of large corporations.
3. The Battle
Ecuador, which had planned to introduce the measure, was first confronted by the American delegation. If Ecuador refused to drop the resolution, Washington would unleash punishing trade measures and withdraw crucial military aid. In addition to the trade threats, Todd C. Chapman, the United States ambassador to Ecuador, suggested in meetings with officials in Quito, the Ecuadorean capital, that the Trump administration might also retaliate by withdrawing the military assistance it has been providing in northern Ecuador, a region wracked by violence spilling across the border from Colombia, according to an Ecuadorean government official who took part in the meeting.
The Ecuadorean government quickly acquiesced. The showdown over the issue was recounted by more than a dozen participants from several countries, many of whom requested anonymity because they feared retaliation from the United States. Health advocates scrambled to find another sponsor for the resolution, but at least a dozen countries, most of them poor nations in Africa and Latin America, backed off, citing fears of retaliation, according to officials from Uruguay, Mexico, and the United States.
During the deliberations, some American delegates even suggested the United States might cut its contribution to the W.H.O., several negotiators said. Washington is the single largest contributor to the health organization, providing $845 million, or roughly 15 percent of its budget, last year.
“We were astonished, appalled and also saddened,” said Patti Rundall, the policy director of the British advocacy group Baby Milk Action, who has attended meetings of the assembly, the decision-making body of the World Health Organization, since the late 1980s. “What happened was tantamount to blackmail, with the U.S. holding the world hostage and trying to overturn nearly 40 years of consensus on the best way to protect infant and young child health,” she said.
4. The Outcome
In the end, the Americans’ efforts were mostly unsuccessful. It was the Russians who ultimately stepped in to introduce the measure — and the Americans did not threaten them. A Russian delegate said the decision to introduce the breast-feeding resolution was a matter of principle.
“We’re not trying to be a hero here, but we feel that it is wrong when a big country tries to push around some very small countries, especially on an issue that is really important for the rest of the world,” said the delegate, who asked not to be identified because he was not authorized to speak to the media.
He said the United States did not directly pressure Moscow to back away from the measure. Nevertheless, the American delegation sought to wear down the other participants through procedural maneuvers in a series of meetings that stretched on for two days, an unexpectedly long period.
The final resolution preserved most of the original wording, though American negotiators did get language removed that called on the W.H.O. to provide technical support to member states seeking to halt “inappropriate promotion of foods for infants and young children.” The United States also insisted that the words “evidence-based” accompany references to long-established initiatives that promote breast-feeding, which critics described as a ploy that could be used to undermine programs that provide parents with feeding advice and support.
Theatre Of The Absurd
It is worth reading the New York Times article itself to see that, while it does clearly lay out the egregious abuse of power that corporations can bring to the political area, the main purpose of the article was to blame Donald Trump for the entire arsenal of strong-arm tactics, even framing the corporations fundamentally as bystanders.
If you are able to disentangle the anti-Trump rhetoric, what you will find underneath is a kind of ‘Theatre of the Absurd’ playing out in front of our eyes, again and again, where there is a clash between good (in the interests of humanity) and evil (in the interests of the few). I can’t help but think that at some transcendent level, this drama continues to play over and over again in the media to somehow wake us up to this reality we have been condoning; that we as a collective have been willing to give our power over to corporations to act against the best interests of humanity simply for their own profit.
If so, it’s time for us, as individuals and as a collective, to take our power back and create a world where large corporate entities are dissolved or stripped of the power to continue to negatively impact the health and well-being of humanity.
