When a MD or DO doctor tries to tell me that NDs aren’t “real medical doctors”

I say…

We were and still are the original form of medicine using nature as our primary tools to facilitate healing. Quit acting “brand new” and honor your roots! This world will be a much better place if we all learn to respect and honor one another (and our respective career fields) versus placing judgement and harsh criticism which stems from ignorance and not truth. AMEN!

A New Alternative to KILLER (ahem…I mean) CHEMOtherapy

Thermotherapy alternative to chemotherapy uses heat, not poison, to kill tumors.

The above link is a natural news article about using the newer technique of¬†hyperthermia aka “thermotherapy” as a better and more natural approach than traditional chemotherapy. A brief summary, thermotherapy is a form of heat therapy where they inject tumors and cancer cells with a special fluid to isolate them via magnetism before applying heat to kill them. These scientists have found a way to use heat, instead of poison and toxins to not only kill cancer but also preserve the patient’s healthy cells, tissues, and overall immunity. Chemotherapy, on the other hand, involves killing EVERYTHING (healthy & cancerous tissues and cells) in order to kill off the cancer.

It is unfortunate that many patients who receive chemotherapy as cancer treatment suffer and die from the effects of the chemo toxins rather than from cancer itself. People deserve to know there are other more natural and less harmful alternatives available for cancer treatment. While this form of thermotherapy is still in clinical trials, there are still other alternatives.

Despite popular notion, cancer can be CURED and I know this from my own experience. The human body is an amazing dynamic healing mechanism, and it can even heal itself from cancer. If you decide to embark on natural methodologies to heal from cancer, then you first need to find a doctor who will truly listen to your concerns, questions, and preferences. You still will need medical monitoring during this process, but you will probably be better off going this route than relying on chemo and radiation alone. Below are a few of the methods I used during my own experience.


1.) NUTRITION: YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT! Nutrition is a powerful tool used by naturopaths for healing. Research found that people who eat and drink excessively with junk food, meats, sodas, processed juices, etc create an acidic environment in their bodies that is ideal for cancer cells to grow. However, a daily diet of fresh raw produce, sprouted grains, fresh juices, filtered water and nutritionally fortified foods create an alkaline environment in which cancer CANNOT thrive.

2.) ELIMINATE SMOKING & ALCOHOL: Whether you are a chain smoker or live with one, you need to avoid cigarettes and the smoke as much as possible. Even second-hand smoke is detrimental to your success in healing. Furthermore, alcohol needs to be eliminated from your diet as well. Alcohol is highly acidic and it is a depressant, both cancer-friendly properties.

3.) BOOST IMMUNE SYSTEM: There is a plethora of herbs, vitamins, and botanicals that have incredible cancer-fighting properties. If you have been reading my blog, you already know vitamin C and D are two key vitamins to boosting immunity health. But there is more…much more. For example, cooked tomatoes are an excellent source of lycopene (a major cancer-fighting carotenoid). Some other cancer fighters/immune boosters are astragalus, garlic, echinacea, chlorophyll, and vitamin B complex. The list goes on and on, but it is best to seek advisement from your doctor to determine which deficiencies you have in order to best supplement for them.

4.) MEDITATION: This is not just a practice for monks! There are various ways to meditate, and it is one of the best methods for nurturing and healing your mind and spirit. Yes, thinking like a Negative Nancy and staying stressed is BAD for your health. To beat cancer, both your body and mind need to be in tune and at peace. BALANCE…it is a¬†necessity for activating your body’s healing response.

Finally, cancer does not have to be an instant death sentence. You can fight it and win if you utilize all the tools available to your disposal. In addition, please take the time to seek a physician who can truly help you actualize this fact without killing your body.
