So what is it that you have, that qualifies you to declare alternative medicines as spells and voodoo?
Just because all you have been taught is that american medicine is the only treatment doesn't make it so. There are plenty of holistic treatments out
there that work for many different ailments. Cancer is no exception.
The fact is, there is NO cure for cancer. PERIOD. Any treatment has about as good a chance of improving your status as the next one.
There is plenty of documentation that shows that Chemo is far from a proper solution. Organ failure, serious pain, its extremely debilitating, costs
unbelievable amounts of money. There are plenty more reasons not to use Chemo.
On the pro side there is very little. About a 5% chance that the cancer will recede due to the treatments. Even if it does, the damage that the chemo
has caused often renders people incapacitated anyway.
I've known several people that have used Chemotherapy and form what i have seen, i would NEVER take it.
Not wanting to take a debilitating treatment is no a suicide wish. If i was faced with the challenge of being a cancer patient, given the fact that
the overwhelming majority barely even extend their life expectancy, i would rather spend my time doing things i want to do, rather than spend my time
in pain, in bed, spending every penny i have.
My grandfather suffered from pancreatic cancer and skin cancer. He lived with both those conditions for nearly a decade. Once the doctors suggested
chemo was the way to go, his health deteriorated from being fully functional to completely bed ridden within a couple of months. In his case, i am
100% convinced that Chemo killed him much faster than the cancer ever was.
so basically to sum this up: Illuminatus1. You are wrong. You have no credentials that put you in a position to state with any accuracy that the
treatments that this family were seeking in mexico will work or not. Therefore you should stay out of peoples business.
It is not child abuse to explore other alternatives. As was stated by many people here, Chemo is a poison and should not be forced upon anyone.
especially a child, and especially by the government.
Here is a very good article that sums up very well the exact reason that I believe that Chemo is the worst possible solution to cancer.
How toxic Chemotherapy kills both cancer cell and cancer patients
Edited to add quote
alternative therapies may pose a serious threat when a patient, if swayed toward alternatives, loses the opportunity to receive the (extremely)
effective orthodox treatment? Run that by me again. Time and time again it has been confirmed that the proven medical treatments are not only
ineffective but dangerous. The vast majority of patients with cancer live longer and better if left without the orthodox treatments. Oncologists will
not accept these treatments for themselves. No scientific research is needed to prove that fresh vegetables, fruit, juices, medicinal herbs, vitamins,
minerals, fiber, etc. are not harmful to the body. It would be nice if there were proof that surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy were not harmful.
