When I first began studying natural healing several years ago, a visiting lecturer who was also a health practitioner said to the class, “Look at the person to the right of you, and look at the person on the left. Twenty years from now, one out of three people will be diagnosed with cancer. Out of you three, who is it going to be?”
As it turns out, the practitioner was right on target. Our cancer rates are growing at an astronomical rate. Alone in my family those statistics have proved spot on and the world statistics are staggering.
Every time I hear the news of another death, the cause is usually cancer.
In the span of one week, David Bowie died from liver cancer, Alan Rickman died from pancreatic cancer and Celine Dion’s husband and her brother both died of complications with throat cancer.
I’m sure in your own life you know someone right now that has been diagnosed with cancer.
According to the American Cancer Society below are some statistics for 2016:
From the orthodox healthcare perspective, cancer needs to be eradicated by cutting it out, burning it with radiation or poisoning it with toxic chemotherapy. All of that treatment inevitably cuts, burns and poisons the host of the cancer as well.
From a natural healthcare perspective, cancer is viewed as stagnation. Either physical, emotional, energetic, or spiritual, the blood is not flowing properly within the body. (Creating dirty blood, an acidic environment.)
One of the ways to work with cancer is to support the body with diet and lifestyle improvements to get the blood cleaned and flowing properly, which will help clear the disease from the system.
Where natural medicine excels is in the area of prevention. I use the seven natural doctors, which are NEW START:
I’m not saying that if you take precautions with your health, diet and lifestyle that you won’t get cancer. The truth is you probably have cancer cells in your system right now. We all do. But, when the body and its organs are nourished and flowing, there is less risk that those cancer cells will accumulate to become problematic.
The interesting thing about cancer is that it is cells that have gone awry. Cells are born and cells die: cancer cells refuse to die. Cancer certainly is a very difficult subject, and it can bring up a LOT of anger. Which is understandable. But, on the emotional level of healing, suppressed anger can damage physical cells and stop them from functioning properly.
So don’t suppress your anger. Get angry, but use that negative energy in a healthy way to promote healing for you. Go and take a run; go for a long walk in nature; get a soothing massage. The idea is to relax you and activate your parasympathetic nervous system, which will increase vitality and facilitate your body’s own healing process. Don’t wait for your statistical turn with cancer, or any other disease for that matter. Do everything possible that you can to prevent cancer from taking up permanent residence in your body.
