Chemotherapy is not the answer to cancer
by Dr. Keith Nemec
(NaturalNews) Chemotherapy will never be the cure of cancer. Cancer will only heal when the toxic load is decreased and an internal biochemical environment is achieved that only produces health and not disease. When you get the chemicals and toxins out of the body and the proper nutrients in, along with living a lifestyle of seven basic steps to total health (which include proper oxygen, water, food, sleep, exercise, fasting/detoxification and learning to live fully in the moment), then cancer and all disease can heal.
Is chemotherapy the best choice when you are diagnosed with cancer? To answer this you must look at what chemotherapy's success rate has been. In an Australian study, researchers stated: "in lung cancer, the median survival has increased by only 2 months during the past 20 years and an overall survival benefit of less than 5 percent has been achieved in the treatment of breast, colon and head and neck cancers." This study showed that chemotherapy's 5-year survival in adults was 2.1 percent in the USA.
So if chemotherapy is not the cancer cure, what is? The answer is not found in curing the disease but in increasing the level of health in the body, so it can do what it was designed to do, which is heal. To heal cancer you must treat the cause and not the effect. You must balance all the systems of the body naturally instead of targeting one organ or gland with toxic medication that negatively affects all other systems of the body.
According to the homotoxicology model of cancer formation, cancer is the end result of toxic buildup in the cells which causes them to dedifferentiate into cancer stem cells in order to survive in a toxic environment. The nucleus of the cell is where the DNA and genetic material are made. When toxins enter into the nucleus, the cell has one final attempt to survive: it dedifferentiates into a stem cell to try to adapt to this toxic environment. The stem cell can change into any cell type and grow very rapidly.
Toxic chemotherapy cannot heal cancer, but instead it only increases the toxic load in the cells more, which causes the cells to produce even more resistant cancer stem cells. The term in cancer therapy is MDR or multiple drug resistance. When these cancer stem cells are exposed to chemotherapy, they become resistant and even more aggressive in order to survive.
The dilemma arises when you keep putting more chemicals in the body to try to cure cancer and these very same chemicals cause cancer stem cells to become more aggressive. This is seen repeatedly with people that undergo chemotherapy; they see tumor shrinkage, but then the tumors grows back even more aggressively later. The reason this occurs is because chemotherapy does not kill cancer stem cells but only the outer core of the tumor, which is made of non-stem cell cancer cells. When cancer stem cells are exposed to these toxic chemicals, it simply makes them more aggressive and they produce more cancer cells, and the cancer will spread.
The only answer to cancer is found in bringing balance and homeostasis to each system of the body along with balancing the biochemical and mental/emotional states. When this is achieved, then healing will naturally occur, and the cancer stem cells will no longer have to produce more cancer cells because there will no longer be any toxicity in the body causing the cells to dedifferentiate into cancer stem cells. Alternative cancer treatment must focus on changing the internal environment instead of trying to kill cancer cells.
