Causes of Cancer
Overview of all Healing Cancer Naturally's sections and pages related to suggested, suspected, known and "proven" causes of cancer, including emotional, mental, spiritual and energetic factors.
The genesis of cancer seems to be multi-causal, and - at least in naturopathic circles - cancer itself is frequently defined as not just a specific localized condition, which a specific drug, herb or other treatment will counteract but a manifestation of systemic disease (Dr. Johanna Budwig, Dr. Johannes Kuhl, Dr. Paul Seeger, and many others). There may be multiple exceptions such as cancers developing after exposure to noxious radiation and carcinogens, cancers developing in an “energetically weak or blocked spot” (see Energetics) etc.
The following listing also includes some of the frequently neglected areas and points to links both “on site” and “out site” for further study of possible, probable, “known” and suspected causes of cancer.
Special note: None of the purported or "proven" cancer causes discussed in these pages are meant to create fear, guilt or other negative feelings in the reader. If you should have any such response, I would advise to study Healing Cancer Naturally’s “Mind over Matter” and related pages first, such as Healing Cancer & The Power of Your Mind, Creating and handling fear when dealing with cancer (On mind power & avoiding negative vs nurturing positive influences), Energetics, Emotions and Spirituality.
