On Healing Cancer (1)
Inspirational, Encouraging, Helpful or Empowering Quotes for Cancer Patients and Others in Search of Healing
Also take a look at the testimonials page where among many healing reports, you’ll find some amazing cases of “instant” and “miraculous” healing of cancer, often lightly shrugged off as spontaneous remission...! And please take note of the very important warning: Cancer “over-diagnosing” and “over-treatment”: Do be aware!.
On cancer and centenarians
...just recently (I think in yahoo news) I came across the statistics that almost a third of people that lived beyond a hundred years old had earlier in their lives... cancer. I think it's beyond positive and optimistic information to know especially for the current cancer patients.
Here is the link to a study that also shows some optimistic results. The statistics is not as great, but still indicates that one can become a centenarian even if he/she has had cancer earlier in life.
A.M. in a correspondence with Healing Cancer Naturally, March 2010
Don’t say your world stopped [following a cancer diagnosis], you can make the choice today to turn it around so that your world will only just begin. It is a good experience to learn how to overcome a cancer diagnosis and to be in charge of your body rather than a victim. Laugh often - it is good medicine.

Cancer victory after having been sent home to die...
"Ethyl had large tumors taking over the breast, sticking out from her skull, and protruding from her body in general. The largest was the one in the left breast which was the size of a big man’s fist.
She did have one crucial thing going for her, Ethyl was a feisty Irish redhead who still had a will to live, and a reason to do so.
[After following a naturopathic detox regime] her eyesight returned, at first seeing only outlines, and then details. ... All the tumors had been reabsorbed by her body and were no longer visible, her heart was able to support normal activity such as walking, and nonstrenuous household chores, and her diabetes had corrected itself to the point that she no longer required insulin and was able to control her blood sugar with diet."
For this most spectacular “terminal” cancer cure achieved via a modified fast using wheatgrass juice implants etc. (the patient was unable to hold any food down), see Terminal breast cancer cure “against all odds”.
I don't trust any doctor anymore.
Vanessa T., my best friend's mother and the inspiration for this website, the last time I spoke to her on the phone a few months before she died in October 2003 after undergoing 2 years of conventional cancer treatment for colon cancer which later metastasized to the liver. Her treatment included original surgery, renewed surgery (something was botched up the first time) followed by rounds of chemo, then “a new experimental” chemo and finally hospice, and of course her oncologist's initial stentorian pronouncement: "I GIVE YOU TWO YEARS."
Contrast this with Allan’s experience quoted and linked above, Dennis’ recovery from “terminal” metastasized colon cancer via a natural, holistic, nutritional approach featured at A rebel’s story, Gerson Fresh Juice Diet & Therapy: Colon Cancer Healing Testimonial and Raw Food Colon Cancer Healing Testimonial.
Everything that happens in your life, and everything that happens in your body, begins with something happening in your consciousness. ... the causes of symptoms are within. While it's true that germs cause disease and accidents cause injuries, it is also true that this happens in accord with what is happening in the consciousness of the person involved. Germs are everywhere. Why are some people affected and not others? Something different is happening in their consciousness. ... If our consciousness is directing how we develop symptoms, it can also direct how we release these same symptoms. If our consciousness can make our body ill, our consciousness can make our body well. ...You have the ability to love wherever there was a perception of a lack of love, or a call for love. Love heals. You have in your consciousness the potential and ability to heal anything, on any level, in yourself as well as in any other Being, since it's all just love and energy. What remains is for you to realize this fully and actualize that potential. ... Anything can be healed.
Martin Brofman, Ph.D. who healed himself of terminal cancer through a consciousness shift
I find it tragic that I must experience almost daily that cancer patients spend more time thinking about how many, and which, tablets they should take instead of dealing with personal changes.
Alternative cancer treatment researcher Lothar Hirneise on change necessary for cancer patients
It is generally agreed among psychiatrists that voodoo can actually kill. A voodoo priest can actually cause the death of a person, provided that both the priest and the subject were born and raised in the culture. In this case, the power of belief is ultimate and will win out over the body’s defense mechanisms. The question has been asked, "What is the modern equivalent of voodoo that some oncologists use to kill their patients?" And the answer has been given, "Those damn statistics". Emotions can suppress the immune system. These would include fear, grief, disappointment, stress, frustration, unresolved conflict and the list goes on. Admitting that the mind can kill, the question becomes one of the equal and opposite ability to cure.

We are continually faced with great opportunities which are brilliantly disguised as unsolvable problems.
Dr. Deepak Chopra in most of his teachings mentions that radioactive isotope studies reveal that we replace nearly 98% of all the atoms in our body within a year. This means that you replace your stomach lining in 5 days, new skin every 30 days, a new liver in 6 weeks, a new bone skeleton in 6 months, and even every brain cell that was there last year, is not there this year. Scientists will tell you that 99% of your body is actually empty space at the nuclear level.
It has long been known that dissections of cadavers dying of natural causes reveal many have had cancer several times during their lifetime resulting in "spontaneous remissions" generally without their knowledge and without ever visiting a doctor.

Recently, results of the Human Genome Project have shattered one of Science's fundamental core beliefs, the concept of genetic determinism. We have been led to believe that our genes determine the character of our lives, yet new research surprisingly reveals that it is the character of our lives that controls our genes. Rather than being victims of our heredity, we are actually masters of our genome.

Victory-a matter of staying power.
Elbert Hubbard, editor
It is a simple thing to be healed of cancer. It is the body that does the work, not my head. I only furnish it with the tools needed to obtain good health. ... My journey was interesting and I still claim that cancer was the best thing that ever happened to me. It woke me up out of my passivity and gave me focus and energy and an awareness of my character. ... Cancer good or bad it is, as all of life, in how you look at it. For me it was very good and taught me much about myself. After all, it matters to have an end to journey towards, but it is the journey that matters in the end. ... I always say it is about the journey not the cancer.

Cancer is the easiest of the degenerative conditions to reverse.
Quoting from a well-known alternative cancer treatment advisor’s book
Your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing.
Abraham Lincoln, 16th U.S. president
To be complete, a healing system must be able to cover the entire field of human experiences-physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Any system which denies any part of this trinity fails in its attempt to heal to the same extent to which it denies any part or parts.
Stanley Burroughs, author of The Master Cleanser
When I discovered I had cancer a few years later it was the emotional equivalent of being hit by a train.
I had stage 3 non Hodgkins lymphoma which meant that the cancer had spread to several groups of lymph nodes. Conventional medicine regards this as incurable.
Everybody reacts to a crisis in a different way and everyone has his or her own method of coping. With me I was in a state of shock for a few months but this gradually began to give way to a desire or an obsession to find out as much information as I could.
So as I began to gather information this led to what many people regard as the second shock of having cancer.
At no stage in the process did anyone inform me that the success rates for conventional treatment, that is chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery, are not all that good and in fact are quite poor. Secondly, after all the medical professionals I consulted during my testing, not one of them even mentioned that there are alternative treatment methods.
... when it came to cancer I was very much left with the feeling that I had been deceived. I felt like I had been treated like a number and kept in the dark and the poor success rates for the chemotherapy I was being offered were kept from me. It was only when I took the trouble to find out the facts myself that the real picture began to emerge.
...remember, nothing works all by itself! You must look at healing in a holistic way! Much literature exists on this interesting subject. Again - no therapy is either effective nor valid all by itself without considering a change in diet, life style and emotional outlook on life. You can’t eat like food is going out of style, hate and criticize all of Nature’s creation and take a couple of herbs and hope to heal in 24 hours or less! Nature takes a long time to break down and takes a long time to heal 100%. Absence of symptoms does not necessarily mean a complete return to health!

The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person’s determination.
Tommy Lasorda, baseball manager
I am NOW a firm believer in the fact that you have to change your lifestyle to give your body time to heal. ... When you are diagnosed with Cancer you should treat it as though you have just been told that you have a week to live ... and yet we don't all seem to take it that seriously.
What people need is 'tough Love' and you should approach their care like a trainer training an athlete. ... So change lifestyle or accept the consequences.
THE CANCER CHANT, I WILL RANT.
A poem contributed by a visitor of Healing Cancer Naturally
Cancer I did not give you the right,
To invade my body and take a bite.
This is my body and with all my might,
I will prevail with one hell of a fight.
To the cancer inside, I will battle and kill.
For that is my body's God-given will.
To my cancer, these words I do send.
Your life is short and near the end.
(For Lucy & all those fighting cancer)

I suggest that all those who find it necessary to add other protocols or to add supplements to it have not even given the Budwig Protocol half a chance. They just don't look beyond the flaxoil/cottage cheese part. There is much more to it than that. It is a scientifically well thought out, all natural approach to health, that has a tremendous rate of success and track record... and it costs next to nothing. I think that if it were very expensive and much money could be made on it, it would be much more popular because it would be pushed by business. But as it stands, it doesn't lend itself to it. So you have to take it at practically no cost or go for some other high priced methods.
Wilhelm H, speaking on Dr. Johanna Budwig’s healing diet & protocol
...it is not so much a problem of getting rid of cancer, but of having the patient take responsibility- for his or her health, to continue to follow the instructions from the health practitioner, and to maintain the changes in diet and lifestyle for the rest of their lives. Otherwise, almost inexorably, another degenerative disease, if not the same cancer, will develop and manifest and invariably shorten the patient's life span.
Dr. A., a naturopathic physician
...success demands discipline and effort. It demands that the patient get moving, become active, develop a constructive fighting attitude. Most people choose the easy way: chemotherapy, radiation or an operation.
People say: "What do you mean the easy way? Do you know how horrible chemotherapy is?" Of course chemotherapy is no fun, but a radical change in your diet and lifestyle is more difficult.
Eminent holistic cancer cure researcher Lothar Hirneise
As I tell my friends, Cancer is the best thing that ever happened to me: it put me on the right path: both physically and spiritually.
Author (who treats himself for Hodgkin’s disease) known to Healing Cancer Naturally
Truly I am very grateful for ... this whole experience - it has utterly changed my life - for the better.

Note by Healing Cancer Naturally: The above two quotes of course do not constitute an obvious attitude to take and are certainly not meant to belittle the feelings of those who (at least after the initial diagnosis) feel devastated, particularly when exposed to the doom-and-gloom attitude of conventional doctors/oncologists and/or battling with pain issues. But in cancer, as with other difficult-seeming challenges, nurturing hope, a positive attitude and a belief in an ultimately beneficial outcome seem essential, truly central and ultimately fully warranted to me. Compare “Cancer stands for Change” in the Thoughts on Healing.
Your doctor is trying to provide the best treatment for you within his or her knowledge. But doctors are not taught about health in medical school - only about disease. Most doctors do not receive even ONE HOUR of training in nutrition during their four years of medical school. The pharmaceutical industry is a multi-billion dollar industry. It provides much of the funding for research in medical schools and nearly all of the advertising in medical journals. It's the old GOLDEN RULE: he who has the gold - rules! So doctors learn ONLY about drugs!
Lorraine Day, M.D. one of those women who cured themselves of breast cancer naturally
Most cancers are not found until autopsy. That's because they never caused any symptoms. For example 30 - 40 times as many cases of thyroid, pancreatic, and prostate cancer are found in autopsy than ever presented to the doctor. According to a study cited in top British medical journal Lancet 13 Feb 93, early screening often leads to unnecessary treatment: 33% of autopsies show prostate cancer but only 1% die from it. After age 75, half of males may have prostate cancer, but only 2% die from it. This means simply that the immune system can hold many problems in check, as long as it is not compromised by powerful procedures. Guess which system is the most important to you at this time, more than it's ever been before in your whole life. Right - the immune system. Guess which system suffers most from chemotherapy and radiation. Right again. So the one time in your life you most need it, your immune system will be weakened by those therapies. If you're one of the few cancer patients who's refused standard treatment from the get-go - good, but your immune system still needs all the help you can give it.
A 1992 study in Journal of the American Medical Association of 223 patients concluded that no treatment at all for prostate cancer actually was better than any standard chemotherapy, radiation or surgical procedure. (Johansson)

Sometimes in our lives we reach rock bottom. We experience what we call HELL. For each of us it’s dressed up differently, but for all of us it is dark, tough and devastating. This HELL can be our awakening. Some people call it a breakdown; I believe it is a breakthrough.

Any disease can be healed - but not every person.
Spiritual healer Bruno Groening translated by Healing Cancer Naturally
(This refers to two things in my view: the fact that there are many factors determining a person’s health [environmental, physical/nutritional, emotional, mental, spiritual, energetic etc.] and the fact that not everyone is willing to expend the effort required to change their life in a way conducive to reestablishing health.)
I do NOT pronounce the word "disease" the way most of the world does, as in "duh-zeeze." I pronounce it "diss-ease," as in "lack of physical/mental ease," or "disrespect for the physical/mental ease" of one's person. The former, "duh-zeeze," makes an illness sound like something mysterious, puzzling, uneasy to think about or to get a handle on. The latter immediately gets one to thinking of HOW one might be sabotaging one's own physical or mental health, and can lead to significantly therapeutic solutions.
... The author of "The Cancer Conqueror," (a man who survived lung cancer after being given only a few weeks to live by his doctors), stopped saying he had cancer, and began saying he was "cancering." He then examined all the ways he might have been "cancering" and proceeded to change those behaviors and beliefs. "I have cancer" was static and death-dealing. "I have been cancering" was dynamic and life-giving.

If you clean your body, your diet, your thoughts, your mind, your spirit, and your closest environment, your body naturally cures cancer.

Winston Churchill, British prime minister
Whenever I've asked a cancer patient who came to see me whether there was a part of him or her which wanted to die, the answer invariably was "yes". They would tell me a number of reasons why dying would indeed be an easy way out. In such cases it's worth asking under what conditions the patient could wholeheartedly start embracing their life again. The therapist's task is to show the patient ways to arrange their life in such a fashion as to make living worthwhile again.

Approximately 1500 people (in Germany only) die each day from cancer, treated to death in an atrocious manner with chemo and morphine ... According to the official statistics published by the German research centre on cancer in Heidelberg (Professor Abel), 98% of patients treated with chemo die within 7 years; 95% ... within 5 years. With the Germanische Neue Medizin however, 98% of those patients who did not previously receive treatments with chemo and morphine, survive. To deprive our patients of a 98% chance of survival is not worthy of medicine and criminal!
Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer, founder of German New Medicine®
No healing method that focuses only on the "physical" body will ever have a significant curing rate of any cancer. My definition of CURE is that you are cured when your cancer or some other serious disease or serious accident will NEVER happen again. NO person, I REPEAT, NO person who only addresses the curing of the "physical" body will EVER reach this level of cure... I have read over 1000 testimonials of people who at least once cured their cancer, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s, psoriasis, CFS, AIDS ... and all but a single one of those who addressed ONLY the health of the "physical" body, later experienced other serious life problems, either the same type of disease or being a victim of an accident, or...

When a patient is found to have a tumor, the only thing the doctor discusses with that patient is what he intends to do about the tumor. If a patient with a tumor is receiving radiation or chemotherapy, the only question that is asked is, "How is the tumor doing?" No one ever asks how the patient is doing. In my medical training, I remember well seeing patients who were getting radiation and/or chemotherapy. The tumor would get smaller and smaller, but the patient would be getting sicker and sicker. At autopsy we would hear, "Isn't that marvelous! The tumor is gone!" Yes, it was, but so was the patient. How many millions of times are we going to have to repeat these scenarios before we realize that we are treating the wrong thing?
In primary cancer, with only a few exceptions, the tumor is neither health-endangering nor life-threatening. I am going to repeat that statement. In primary cancer, with few exceptions, the tumor is neither health-endangering nor life-threatening. What is health-endangering and life-threatening is the spread of that disease through the rest of the body.
There is nothing in surgery that will prevent the spread of cancer. There is nothing in radiation that will prevent the spread of the disease. There is nothing in chemotherapy that will prevent the spread of the disease. How do we know? Just look at the statistics! There is a statistic known as "survival time." Survival time is defined as that interval of time between when the diagnosis of cancer is first made in a given patient and when that patient dies from his disease. ... the survival time of the cancer patient today is no greater than it was fifty years ago. What does this mean? It obviously means that we are treating the wrong thing!
