THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MAINSTREAM (ORTHODOX) CANCER DOCTOR AND AN ALTERNATIVE (HERETIC) HOLISTIC HEALTH HEALER'S APPROACH
"The popularity of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is considerable: the one year prevalence of CAM usage is 42 percent in the United States” (Eisenberg David et al, Trends in alternative medicine use in the United States. JAMA 1998:280:1569-75
One of the primary differences between conventional and alternative medicine is in how cancer is defined. Conventional doctors see a malignant growth in the body and call that the cancer. Consequently, their treatments consist primarily of attacks against the tumor. Their preferred choices are surgery (cut out the tumor), radiation (burn the tumor), or chemotherapy (poison the tumor). If the tumor is removed or even reduced in this fashion, the doctor pronounces that the therapy is a success, and we often hear such reassuring statements as "We got it all." All-too-often, however, the malignancy returns either to the same location or spreads to another, and another, and yet another. At that point, we are told that the cancer has returned, and the attack against the new tumors is repeated as before.
By contrast, practitioners of alternative medicine do not consider the tumor to be the cancer, but merely the symptom of the cancer. They are more concerned with what caused the tumor to grow in the first place. They reason that it is more logical to fix the cause of the tumors than to attack the tumors themselves. If they can accomplish that, then the malignancies will stop growing, become harmless lumps, and eventually be re-absorbed and discarded by the body.
When a farmer sees black spots on the leaves of his corn crop, does he run around the corn field cutting the spots out of the leaves? Usually not, because he knows that the spots are caused by tiny organisms called blight. Even if he could succeed in cutting out all the spots, by the next day, they would be back on other parts of the leaves and there would be twice as many as the day before. The only way to get rid of the spots is to treat his entire crop to get rid of the organism that causes them. This is the approach of alternative medicine. Under microscopic examination, malignant growths usually appear to be quite different from each other, depending on their location and maturity. Since doctors of orthodox medicine think that these growths are cancer, they conclude that there are many different types of cancer. They give them distinctive names and often have a different approach for the treatment of each of them.
The doctor of alternative medicine, however, sees all malignancies as merely different manifestations of the same disease. What makes them appear different is that they take on some of the characteristics of the organs in which they grow. However, the more malignant the growth, the less they resemble their host organs and the more they resemble each other. The most malignant growths of all are practically indistinguishable from each other. They are, for all practical purposes, the same.
The healer of alternative medicine, therefore, views cancer as a general, systemic disease rather than a localized, organ-related disease. Consequently, the treatment is aimed primarily at strengthening the patient's natural defense mechanisms and assisting the whole body to overcome the malignancy, including, but not limited to detox.
In some cases, especially those where a malignancy has become life-threatening due to its proximity to a vital organ – such as the heart or brain – most doctors of alternative medicine will prescribe surgery to remove the immediate threat. But they do not consider that to be treatment of the disease. It is merely a procedure to buy valuable time in which to apply the slower-acting therapies of re-building the natural defenses.
WHAT DO WE MEAN BY HOLISTIC
Holistic is derived from a Greek word ‘holos’, which is the origin of words such as ‘heal’, ‘health’, ‘holy’, ‘whole’, including body, mind and spirit. ’Holistic Medicine’ is used often synonymously with ‘alternative medicine’ or integrative medicine. Alternative Medicine means simply an alternative way to Western mainstreamMedicine.The Holistic Way of living is to understand that we are both a part of and a microcosm of the universe. We are sustained by the universe and nature by being in harmony with them and following their law. That is the essence of Holistic Medicine.
WHY ARE ENZYMES IMPORTANT FOR HEALTH AND BEATING CANCER MALIGNANCY ?
Close to 100 years ago, John Beard, DSc, of Edinburgh, Scotland and other scientists have made impressive claims concerning the effectiveness of enzyme threrapy in the treatment of cancer. Again, recently, Dr. Novak made intriguing findings in his Bucknell laboratory on the behavior of metastatic cells in the presence of proenzymes. Cf. Proenzyme Therapy of Cancer. Anticancer Research 2005;25:1157-1178. Another study published in the journal Pancreas suggests the effectiveness of pancreatic enzymes against cancer in mice. This form of nutritional cancer therapy has been used by Nicholas Gonzalez, M.D. in his medical practice in New York City. Gonzalez is one of the authors of the study, "Pancreatic Enzyme Extract Improves Survival in Murine Pancreatic Cancer" (Pancreas. 2004 May;28(4):401-12). In Europe, enzyme therapy is massively given to cancer patients. FOR MORE DETAILS, CLICK HERE

2. EXPERT TESTIMONY TWO: Dr Sporn, in Lancet
"Failture to appreciate that local invasion and distant metastasis rather then cell proliferation itself are lethal, obsession with cure of advanced disease rather than prevention of early disease, and neglect of the need to arrest pre-neoplastic lesions may all have served to make victory elusive".

“I suddenly had this vision about all of us being a bit like the orchestra on the Titanic, pretending everything's okay for our patients, putting on a front for the patients, but I think the ship's about to go under. (…) Insufficient coverage meant staff had less time with individual patients, had to forgo lunch and breaks, work late and had little or limited time for other professional activities, such as education or research, which they saw as necessary for regeneration" Dr. Eva Grunfeld, a researcher at Dalhousie University and the Nova Scotia Cancer Centre Grunfeld E.

6 & 7. EXPERT TESTIMONIES FROM DRS DIAMOND AND COWDEN
"To the cancer establishment, a cancer patient is a profit center. The actual clinical and scientific evidence does not support the claims of the cancer industry. Conventional cancer treatments are in place as the law of the land because they pay, not heal, the best. Decades of the politics-of-cancer-as-usual have kept you from knowing this, and will continue to do so unless you wake up to their reality."

14. EXPERT EYE-WITNESS DR EPSTEIN:
Dr. Samuel Epstein is professor emeritus of environmental medicine at the University of Illinois School of Public Health, and Chairman of the Cancer Prevention Coalition (www.preventcancer.com). He has published some 260 peer reviewed articles, and authored or co-authored 10 books. In this testimony, he talks about common "chemo" agents.
First of all, animal and dairy products are highly contaminated with a wide range of pesticides and other industrial, chemical carcinogens. Take meat for instance. Apart from the pesticides and industrial carcinogens, you have the sex hormones. Because cattle in feedlots, 100 days to slaughter, are implanted with sex hormones such as estradiol in their ear, and from which high residues are left in the meat that you eat. These are very important risk factors for reproductive cancers—testicular cancers in men, breast cancers in women, and leukemia in children.
Children love hotdogs. Hotdogs are dyed pink and red with nitrite, and the nitrite reacts with certain amines—chemicals naturally present in food—to produce highly potent carcinogens, known as nitrosamines. We have the chemical data showing that nitrosamines are found in nitrite-dyed hot dogs, and we also have what’s called epidemiological studies on children showing that children who eat nitrite in their dyed hotdogs—which are the standard hotdog—have up to about a three- to four-fold increased incidence of brain cancer, and about a six to seven-fold increase incidence of leukemia. Apart from that, most of the milk in the country is contaminated. It comes from cows that have been injected with a genetically engineered growth hormone to increase their production of milk, and this hormone increases levels of a natural growth factor, known as IGF1. So the milk becomes supercharged by this growth factor, which in high levels has been clearly associated with breast cancer, prostate cancer, and colon cancer".
SO THE NEXT QUESTION IS WHY DO ONCOLOGISTS STILL PRESCRIBE TOXIC AND DUBIOUS CHEMOTHERAPY ?
THE ANSWER: THE CLASSIC TRIO: IGNORANCE, GREED ET FRAUD
The January 1, 2001 issue of the Journal of Clinical Oncology confirmed that in 1999 the average annual income of oncologists in private practice was $253,000. By comparison, oncologists in academic medicine earned "only" $142,000. Where does the bulk of a private oncologist's income come from? The Journal of the National Cancer Institute (JNCI) commented that "private-practice oncologists typically derive two-thirds of their income from selling chemotherapy" (JNCI 2001;93:491).
However, in academic hospitals, this "chemotherapy concession" ( to quote the JNCI) "is not held by the individual physician; revenues go instead to the institution."
And this conflict of interest continues notwithstanding the evidence that chemo is both futile and nefarious for the majority of cancers. As stated Upton Sinclair: "It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it."
AND WHAT DO THE GOVERNMENT EXPERTS SAY ?

An interview with Campbell in April 22, 1994, see "Good Medicine": 1994; 3:11-14 Likewise for cancer, "....all animal food consumption, even fish and chicken, raises the rates of cancer" quoting from Dr Fuhrman (ibid., page 33), who supports this piece of allegation with over tweny years of medical practice and key studies, such as the ones orchestrated by Chen, Campbell, Peto, entitled: "A a study of diet nutrition and disease in the People's republic of China, Published by University of Oxford Press, Cornel University Press, China Publishing Hosue in 1988.

A FEW EXEMPLES OF "SUPERFOODS"
GARLIC: When crushed or finely chopped it yields allicin, a powerful antibiotic and anti-fungal compound. It also contains alliin, ajoene, enzymes, vitamine B, minerals (including selenium and germaniun), quercetin, rutin, p-coumaric acids, zinc among other components.
"A host of studies provide compelling evidence that garlic and its organic allyl sulfur components are effective inhibitors of the cancer process. These studies reveal that the benefits of garlic are not limited to a specific species, to a particular tissue, or to a specific carcinogen. Of 37 observational studies in humans using garlic and related allyl sulfur components, 28 studies showed some cancer preventive effect. The evidence is particularly strong for a link between garlic and prevention of prostate and stomach cancers". (National Cancer Institute, 11.27.02).
TOMATOES: ONCE DEEMED A POISON
A thorough review of scientific literature strengthens the evidence that eating tomatoes and tomato-based products can provide powerful protection against many kinds of cancer. Dr. Edward Giovannucci, a leading cancer researcher at Harvard Medical School, reached this conclusion after analyzing the results of 72 studies on the health effects of tomatoes. "The antioxidant properties of lycopene, a carotenoid found primarily in tomatoes, have raised interest in the tomato as a food with potential anticancer properties," says Dr. Giovannucci, whose research review appeared in the February 17, 1999, issue of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Some studies examined dietary differences between cancer patients and people free of the disease, while others measured lycopene levels in blood plasma. A total of 57 studies present convincing evidence of a relationship between tomato consumption or blood lycopene level and the risk of cancer. The data are strongest for cancers of the prostate gland, lung and stomach, but also extend to several other kinds, including breast, pancreatic, colorectal, esophageal, oral and cervical cancers. According to Dr. Giovannucci, these benefits were observed whether the diets contained fresh or processed tomatos. Researchers believe that lycopene neutralizes harmful free radicals that can damage cells and trigger cancer. But researchers believe that cancer protection most likely comes from a complex interaction between lycopene and other phytochemicals and nutrients present in tomatoes. The author advises that current recommendations should emphasize the health benefits of diets rich in a variety of fruits and vegetables, including tomatoes and tomato-based products. Though there is strong evidence connecting lycopene and cancer protection, researchers are not in agreement about how this occurs.
THE GLORIOUS BROCCOLI
JOHNS HOPKINS SCIENTISTS have found a new and highly concentrated source of sulforaphane, a compound they identified in 1992 that helps mobilize the body's natural cancer-fighting resources and reduces risk of developing cancer."Three-day-old broccoli sprouts consistently contain 20 to 50 times the amount of chemoprotective compounds found in mature broccoli heads, and may offer a simple, dietary means of chemically reducing cancer risk," says Paul Talalay, M.D., J.J. Abel Distinguished Service Professor of Pharmacology. Talalay's research team fed extracts of the sprouts to groups of 20 female rats for five days, and exposed them and a control group that had not received the extracts to a carcinogen, dimethylbenzanthracene. The rats that received the extracts developed fewer tumors, and those that did get tumors had smaller growths that took longer to develop. In a paper published in tomorrow's issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Talalay and his coworkers describe their successful efforts to build on their 1992 discovery of sulforaphane's chemoprotective properties. Work described in the study is the subject of issued and pending patents. A systematic search for dietary sources of compounds that increase resistance to cancer-causing agents led the Hopkins group to focus on naturally occurring compounds in edible plants that mobilize Phase 2 detoxification enzymes. These enzymes neutralize highly reactive, dangerous forms of cancer-causing chemicals before they can damage DNA and promote cancer. Sulforaphane "is a very potent promoter of Phase 2 enzymes," says Jed Fahey, plant physiologist and manager of the Brassica Chemoprotection Laboratory at Hopkins, and broccoli contains unusually high levels of glucoraphanin, the naturally-occurring precursor of sulforaphane."

EXPERT TESTIMONY FROM THE FOUNDER OF ONE OF THE BEST EUROPEAN CAM CANCER CENTER. IN 1940'S, DR KRISTINE NOLFI CURED HERSELF OF A BREAST CANCER VIA RAW FOODS AND OTHER TECHNIQUES TAUGHT BY THE EUROPEAN TRADITION FROM HYPOCRATES, GALEN, AVICENNES, SENECA, KHUN, KNEIP, THE MUESLI SWISS DOCTORS KRISH-BERCHNER, BREUSS, CARTON AND MANY OTHERS.
By Dr. KIRSTINE NOLFI (Denmark)
Originally published around 1950
"BEFORE I realized the actual importance of raw vegetable food, my attitude was exactly the same as that of other doctors -- to treat the symptoms of the disease without thinking of preventing it. It ought to be the duty of the medical profession in future to find means of preventing to a much higher degree than now, instead of having to cure later on. That I, as a doctor, went in for exclusively raw vegetable food is due to the fact that I became ill, even seriously ill, myself. I developed cancer of the breast. The disease had, of course, been preceded by wrong nourishment and wrong habits in the course of my twelve years of hospital training, when I suffered from sluggish digestion and catarrh of the stomach all the time, disorders which are still of quite common occurrence among hospital staff members. Since that time, no change of the hospital diet has taken place in Denmark in this very important domain. On one occasion I was in a dying condition because of a bleeding gastric ulcer. This made me abandon meat and fish, and I became a vegetarian. Later, I took to eating a good deal of raw vegetable food. In this manner my digestion became regulated, and I felt better, though not completely well. In the winter of 1940 to 1941, I was exceptionally tired and dull, but I was unable to ascertain any specific disease. At that time I did not understand what was wrong with me, but in the course of the Spring I discovered a small node in my right breast.
Tired and dull as I was, I did not pay any attention to it until, five weeks later, I discovered that the node was the size of a hen’s egg. It had grown into the skin, a thing only cancer does. As a doctor, I had seen enough to be unwilling to submit to the treatment of cancer generally employed. I consulted my good friend, Dr. M. Hindhede, who dissuaded a trial microscopy. It would open up the blood streams and the cancer would spread; so I gave it up. And then I felt it as quite a natural thing that I would have to carry through a one hundred per cent raw vegetable diet.
I went in search of nature and lived for a time on a small island in the Kattegat, took sun-baths from four to five hours daily, slept in a tent, bathed several times a day, and lived exclusively on a raw vegetable diet. Later I introduced this habit of life at the sanatorium "Humlegarden."

CANCER AND BOTANICALS
Seventy percent of the plants identified as having anti-cancer characteristics by the US National Cancer Institute are found only in tropical rainforests. Some examples of rainforest plants responsible for 25 percent of the drugs used by Western medicine are quinine (cinchona tree, to treat malaria), novacaine as an anesthetic, (from coca), cortisone (wild yam), vincristine and vinblastine (rosy periwinkle, used to fight leukemia and Hodgkin’s disease). Hereinunder some additional anti cancer medicinal plants and flowers.
BLOODROOT: Native Americans, early settlers and herbal practitioners have prescribed Bloodroot for myriad medical conditions from skin cancers to sore throats. Its most persistent and possibly valid use takes advantage of the flesh destroying properties of the root juice or powered root for treating conditions of the skin such as ringworm, warts, polyps, fungal growths and the like. One of the constitutents of bloodroot is sanguinarine, it is showing results as an anesthetic, antibacterial, anti-cholinesterase, anti-edemic, anti-gingivitic, anti-inflammatory, anti-neoplastic, antioxidant, anti-periodontic, anti-plaque, antiseptic, diuretic, emetic, expectorant, fungicide, gastrocontractant, hypertensive, pesticide, respiratory stimulant and more. Another important constituent is Berberine (also found in Goldenseal, Oregon Grape and Honeysuckle) which is showing promise in fighting brain tumors and many other cancers. Bloodroot is used in alternative medicine in very small doses, mainly for bronchial problems and severe throat infections. The root is used in many pharmaceuticals, mixed with other compounds to treat heart problems, dental applications (to inhibit plaque), and to treat migraines. Bloodroot paste is used externally for skin diseases, warts, and tumors.
RED CLOVER: has also shown anticancer activity, poultices of the herb have been used as local applications to cancerous growths. Internally, the Red Clover plant is used as an alternative medicine for skin complaints such as eczema and psoriasis, cancers of the breast, ovaries and lymphatic system, chronic degenerative diseases, gout, whooping cough and dry coughs.Different anti-cancer formulas such as the Hoxsey formulas use this plant.
MISTLETOE: A KEY EUROPEAN CANCER BOTANICAL. The first "Anthroposophical mistletoe medicines" were made by a Dr. Ita Wegman in 1917. Working with a pharmacist, she developed an injectible form of mistletoe. Scientific papers were presented at an Anthroposophical conference in 1920 and then in 1935. (Dr. Wegman established the Society for Cancer Research in Arlesheim). Laboratory studies have found that mistletoe destroys cancer cells and stimulates the immune system and has been incorporated into the care of cancer patients in Europe for over 80 years. The use of mistletoe to treat cancer has been studied in Europe in more than 30 clinical trials and mistletoe therapy is thought to be the most commonly used complementary cancer treatment in Europe today. Improvements in survival and quality of life have been reported. But the FDA and its federal agents have raised doubts about the effectiveness of this plant and have up to now not recognized its anti-cancer therapeutic effects, and can not be used outside of clinical trials. When they exist. To date and to our knowledge, the only one is sponsored by by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) which is part of the National Institutes of Health. In this framework, a clinical cancer trial of mistletoe, given in combination with the drug gemcitabine has been approved. However, American mistletoe is biologically different from European mistletoe.
Turmeric holds a high place in Ayurvedic medicine as a "cleanser of the body" and today science is finding a growing list of diseased conditions which turmeric's active ingredient heals. According to University of Chicago scientists, curcumin inhibits a cancer-provoking bacteria (H. Pylor) associated with gastric and colon cancer (Magad GB). In Madurai, this yellow powder proved to be healthy in blocking the growth of melanoma tumor cells. In this part of the world, there is a tradition that whereby mothers put this yellow powder on the shaved heads of children doing their puja to prevent skin-cancer. The University of Texas Cancer center is examining the basis of this observation (July 2005).Curcumin is the active ingredient of the Indian curry spice turmeric. It is a polyphenol with a molecular formula C21H20O6. Curcumin acts as a free radical scavenger and antioxidant, inhibiting lipid peroxidation and oxidative DNA damage. For the last few decades, extensive work has been done to establish the biological activities and pharmacological actions of curcumin. Its anticancer effects stem from its ability to induce apoptosis in cancer cells without cytotoxic effects on healthy cells.
The dandelion is a perennial, herbaceous plant with long, lance-shaped leaves. They're so deeply toothed, they are called Dent-de-lion (= " lion's tooth" in French). Dandelion roots help to detox.

LES FAITS AU NIVEAU DE LA RECHERCHE FONDAMENTALE:
Au lieu de produire leur energie dans les mitochondries, les cellules cancereuses produisent leur energie via glycolyse dans un mileu quasi-anaerobique et anarchique. (travaux de Warburg, prix Nobel, 1933). Ce procédé de dysfonctionnement consomme énormement de glucose et épuise, à terme, l'ensemble de l'organisme. Or, jusqu'à present, la Science orthodoxe n'avait retenu qu'une hypothèse ( élévée au rang du dogme), à savoir que la mitochondrie des cellules cancereuses etait irremediablement atteintes, qu'il n'y avait aucun espoir de résusciter une production soutenable de cette énergie dite "atp".
Toutefois, l'hérésie et l'honneteté scientifique ont coroboré que les mitochondries des cellules cancéreuses peuvent etre ranimées. La preuve est que tant in vitro que in vivo, la mitochondrie d'une cellule cancéreuse peut etre ranimée. Graçe à quoi l'apoptose redemarre et la cellule cancereuse meurt d'une mort naturellement programmée, laissant par là même la place aux cellules différenciées saines.
Parallèlement, l'on savait depuis longtemps que le processus de la glycolyse produit aussi de l'acide lactique, comme l'insuffisance de respiration cellulaire. Or, cet épiphénomère du processus de la cancérogénèse casse la matrice de collagène qui lie les cellules entre elles. Du coup, l'harmonie de l'ensemble, les "inter-cellular signaling paths" sont court-circuités. Un mecanisme qui favorise la métastase. Le Dr Linus Pauling, hérétique scientifique de haut niveau (et deux fois couronné du prix Nobel) avait démontré que la vitamine C pouvait réduire ce nécro-épiphénomène. Toutefois, l'orthodoxie mainstream avait choisi de ne pas mettre en cause la présomption ou le dogme que c'est non le metabolisme, mais la mécanique génétique (i.e. l'altération de l'adn = mutation) qui provoque le processus malin, d'ou le choix des traitements violents, (chimio-radio-couteau), traitements très onéreux.
Or, cette correlation n'est pas causale. Entre la mutation et la formation de loci cancéreux il y a un maillon manquant. Le métabolisme. Et pour cause. Pas besoin de milliards de drogue pour rafistoler le metabolisme défectueux. Le paradigme qui consiste à privilégier le métabolisme sur la génétique fonde l'approche de la médecine holistique et alternative qui n'est rien d'autre que la continuité des découvertes des anciens (Hippocrates, Galen, Kneipp, Khun, Tilden et al), et dont la thérapeutique se fonde sur une amelioration du metabolisme, un accroissement d'oxygene, une amélioration de la respiration cellulaire et un changement du mode de vie allant dans la sense de la désintoxication des cellules et du renforcement des systèmes immunitaires et enzymatiques. Nous allons donc dans le sense du progrès, de la santé publique et de la liberté. Voir le lien SCIENCE ET CANCER.
