One of the worst diagnoses you can receive is that of having cancer. There are a number of reasons why such a diagnosis is hard to take but the most salient one is the fact that there isn’t (at least officially) a cure.
The main treatments (i.e., “conventional cancer treatment” or CCT) offered by the American medical establishment fall almost exclusively under the categories of radiation, surgery, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, and immunotherapy. These options, at best, supposedly buy people time but, in most cases, quality of life is negatively impacted, sometimes in painful, hard-to-tolerate ways.
It is safe to say, in fact, that those diagnosed with cancer will die from cancer, unless they die from other causes before the cancer comes back. Furthermore, fatalities from cancer may actually be much higher than the figures put out by the government. Someone, for example, who dies in a car accident (who may also be suffering from cancer) isn’t counted as a cancer fatality although he/she would have been, had they not succumbed to such an unpredictable, sudden death before cancer had its way.
Is a Cancer Diagnosis, Then, a Hopeless Situation?
Being told you have cancer is very bad news but, take heart, it may not necessarily be as inescapable and hopeless as it seems to be for many people.
For the record, there are a number of things you need to consider and do before you let such news drag you down–things that may, if not alleviate, then sometimes remove such an unwelcome burden from your unsuspecting shoulders.
Start by realizing that there is some cancer misinformation out there–some of it coming from people with apparently-promising but scientifically-unconfirmed theories, treatments and cures, but much of it also coming from medical professionals who are incestuously (metaphorically speaking) dependent on or connected to the profit-driven (oftentimes, apparently deliberately overlooking what’s best for patients) pharmaceutical and CCT industries.
For example, some experts claim that there are alternative cancer treatments out there that cannot only prevent cancer but cure it. This article will not delve too deeply into that aspect except to say that many of those treatment options (which mostly have to do with nutritional treatments options, as in the case of laetrile) have not been adequately tested so that they can either be approved outright or completely condemned. The majority of them have been rejected based on the personal opinions of medical/scientific experts too flagrantly connected or financially benefiting from the conventional cancer treatment industries.
Should these treatment options ever be subjected to appropriate clinical studies (using human beings, controls, and adequate time periods of 3, 5 or more years, in order to be statistically significant), we might then find out that we already have cures for cancer that have been summarily rejected simply because the CCT cartels couldn’t bear the competition or didn’t want to experience reductions or elimination of their otherwise huge profit margins and lucrative career opportunities.
Then again, such studies may also conclusively prove that these alternative options don’t work but the point is that, until such studies are conducted, no one should discount them.
This alone should give you some hope–the fact that there may already be out there treatment options that work and may eventually be offered to the public (unless it’s already being offered), regardless of any objections voiced by people more focused on keeping their jobs, protecting their industries or standing up for profits, instead of upholding what is ethically/morally correct, the rights of patients and what is in the best interest of public health.
Beyond this knowledge, you can also take comfort from the following steps, each of which offers a special type of peace of mind of its own…
Getting a diagnosis of cancer need not be the end. At the highest end of the spectrum of optimism are stories of people who reportedly beat cancer using natural or non-traditional treatment options. Don’t just dismiss these stories with the same kind of presumptuous arrogance that mainstream media journalists do, after having used their magic crystal balls to determine that these reports were simply not true.
Instead, do your own objective, unbiased research. What if these stories turn out to be 100% true?
The important thing to remember is that there are options out there beyond those offered by conventional cancer treatment. It may even be true that cancer cures exist outside the profit-motivated, government-authorized American medical establishment–and would that really surprise you?
