Alternative Cures Melanoma Cancer

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Any experience with flax oil curing diseases like cancer, arthritis?
    A friend with melanoma is lucking for alternative cures, she is in the 4th stage.

    • ANSWER:
      Her oncologist can recommend a clinical trial.

  2. QUESTION:
    Has any one had success with an alternative treatment for melamona?
    I have just been diagnosed and am in the early stages. I have been reading about some alternative
    treatments and a few testimonies of people who tried them. But The Dr. says don't waste my time there is no alternative cure.

    • ANSWER:
      Your doctor is correct; there is no alternative cure - and certainly not massage, bloody hell!

      Treatments are only called 'alternative' when they have not been proven to work, or when they have been proven not to work.

      'Alternative medicine' that has been proven to work is called 'medicine'.

      Of course you'll find online testimonials from people claiming to have been cured - alternative medicine is big business and they're after your money.

      For early stage melanoma removal of the melanoma and surrounding tissue is usually all the treatment that is needed.

      If you are tempted by an alternative, do a search on this website before investing money, hope and (potentially most dangerous of all for a cancer patient) TIME in an ineffective and possibly dangerous 'cure'.

      If you rely on alternative, unproven treatments, your condition will in fact be untreated, and it won't be in the early stages for long.

  3. QUESTION:
    Are there cures for cancer that have been drowned out by the AMA and other economic interests?
    Hoxsey maybe. There are many people who don't want to believe there are cures. Make sure you scroll down to find other points of view. Don't give up on your search just because the FDA or AMA says there are none.

    • ANSWER:
      Absolutely there are. Instead of the cure we were promised within a few years of the commencement of the War on Cancer and the annual announcements of breakthroughs and imminent cures, cancer has become a bloated 0 Billion plus industry whose continued survival and profits depend on NOT finding a cure.

      Despite all the gerrymandering of statistics, more people come down with cancer and die of cancer every year. At the turn of the 20th century, fewer than 1 in 100 people were expected to develop cancer and when the War on Cancer was declared about 1 in 40 were expected to develop cancer. Today, 1 in every 2 men and 1 in every 3 women are expected to develop cancer. There is still no emphasis on prevention, little attention given to diet and lifestyle or nutrition, a virtual cover up of the role toxins play, and a continued failed emphasis on trying to cut out, poison out or burn out the mere symptoms of cancer instead of addressing the root causes, actually curing the cancer and restoring the liver and immune system to prevent it's return. There is also plenty of suppression of alternative therapies which mainstream medicine does not control and profit from.

      For an excellent article on Harry Hoxsey, and how he was attacked by the AMA and the evil Morris Fishbein who headed up the AMA, see:

      http://www.naturalnews.com/027020_cancer_the_AMA_medicine.html

      As the article states, Hoxsey's personal physician insisted he died from heart failure due to a weakened liver, but his physicican was not available to sign the death certificate and another one put down the cause of death as "prostate melanoma". Liver failure is common among cancer sufferers and is the number one cause of death by chemo. It can also be caused by natural and alternative therapies if measures are not taken to protect, rebuild and cleanse the liver and to keep the bile ducts open and flowing. The late great cancer pioneer Max Gerson (another person who was harassed and whose treatments were suppressed) observed that he never found a single cancer patient who did not also have an impaired liver. He also lost half of his first patients to liver failure because of the success his juiced vegetables therapy had in killing cancer cells due to the increased toxic loads on already impaired livers. As a result, he began demanding regular coffee enemas and other measures and had virtually no liver failures thereafter.

      To find out just what lengths mainstream medicine has gone to in order to suppress therapies which they do not control and harass those who developed them, take a look at the book by former New York State Assemblyman Dan Haley:

      Politics in Healing: The suppression and manipulation of American Medicine
      http://www.politicsinhealing.com/

      It is shameful beyond belief! But it is also in keeping with the dark history of mainstream medicine and their suppression of any items or therapies they do not control and profit from, as I detailed in my article:

      "Modern Medicine: How Healing Illness became Managing Illness"
      http://www.tbyil.com/Managed_Illness_Bare.htm

      It isn't what is taught in medical school or reported in the controlled mainstream media that depends on hundreds of millions of dollars in advertising from mainstream medicine, and it certainly isn't what the mainstreamers here would want you to find out, but it is hard to argue with facts and history.

      As an example of alternative therapies that work: I manage a Yahoo group about cancer with over 1700 members and it has been around for over 5 years. - and we emphasize a natural approach that incorporates diet, nutrition, elimination of toxins from the body and environment, proper liver care and key supplements. A great many members join the group after mainstream medicine has failed them, including my own 86 year old uncle who is now cancer free. In all that time, less than a dozen people I am aware of are not still alive - and every one of those had prior surgery, chemo and/or radiation. Similarly, a naturopathic PhD who uses the same basic protocol and who developed the oleander extract Sutherlandia OPC reports that out of over 1000 users he has kept tabs on, the success rates are over 95% for those who had stage 1 and 2 cancers and about 85% for those with stage 3 and 4 cancers.

      Must have been the placebo effect, huh?

  4. QUESTION:
    Do you find yourself cutting out people from your life that keep talking about alternative medicine?
    I mean I get tired of their ignorance.

    I have been fighting cancer for three years and each year it has gotten worse.

    I beg of you, please do not forward cancer patients links of crap that you did not take the time research yourself.

    Inoperable stage IV melanoma.
    Clyde, the Acia juice and how wheat grass cures cancer. Articles that have no scientific basis just hearsay.

    I find out soon if I need to find a drug trial so am I not against trying something new.

    • ANSWER:
      I don't, because those people in my family or among my friends who still have warm fuzzy feelings about alternative medicine (the most you can have, in the absence of proof) know better now than to try and preach it to me.

      But when I was first diagnosed with stage 3 cancer, I can't count the number of people (mostly well-meaning, but of course completely ignorant of cancer) who pressed their alternative treatment of choice on me.

      I have to admit I was something of an alternatives enthusiast myself at the time, so I was determined there must be some other way than harsh conventional treatment, and I explored every avenue. My frantic research led me to the conclusion that not one case of cancer has been successfully treated by any unproven alternative 'treatment', ever. Reluctantly, I went with the treatments recommended by my oncologist. I have now been in remission for over 5 years and I'm fit and well.

      What the alties don't seem to understand is that we KNOW conventional cancer treatments aren't perfect; we just also know, because they have been tested and proven in double blind clinical trials, that they save a lot of lives and prolong may, many more, and so are our best chance.

      You're right about people forwarding links they haven't read or researched themselves. What's disturbing about alternative medicine believers is that they are so ready and willing to believe, they believe ANYTHING that anyone claims is an effective alternative treatment. As long as it's 'natural', it must be effective.

      Can't be said often enough: Q. What do you call alternative medicine that's been proven to work? A. Medicine.

      Funniest thing about the people pressing alternatives on me after my diagnosis was the by far the biggest group were urging me to read Jane Plant's book, Your Life In Your Hands, and follow the diet therein. Plant argues that breast cancer is caused by dairy, and urges a dairy-free diet for both prevention and cure.

      Now, I'd been a vegan - no animal products of any kind, so definitely no dairy - for several years before my diagnosis of advanced, aggressive breast cancer. And the really odd thing was that without exception the people pressing this book on me already knew that...

  5. QUESTION:
    Do you think there exists a cure for Cancer?
    I have heard it said that we have a cure for cancer, but the powers keep it hidden for the simple reason of massive overpopulation. Why is there no cancer in the royal family?

    • ANSWER:
      Asking a question like this is to invite all the alternative treatment and religous miracle people out to peddle their "cure". The trolls are out in force for this one. With the wide variety of "treatments" with no proven efficacy, do you honest believe any of these work?

      You would not be asking such a question if you understood a little bit about cancer biology.

      Cancer is not a curable disease. It's not one disease. It is a collection of diseases each defined by a specific set of genetic mutations and the cell type. So, each cancer would require a different treatment.

      The common cold has no cure either. There are thousands maybe more different viruses that cause the cold. There is no medicine to cure the common cold. There is just medicine to alleviate/mask the symptoms. The immune system does the rest to get rid of the foreign invader (cold virus).

      In cancer, the problem is much more complex. There is no foreign invader. The problem is our own cells have had their genes mutated. Some of those mutations involve controlling growth (cell division).

      We have developed some treatments against certain viruses. Those drugs specifically target the virus by their surface signature (antigens). Cancer cells are derived from normal cells. Their surface signature is the almost the same as normal cells. There are some therapies that take advantage of the subtle differences for certain cancers (MABs for lymphomas, cancer vaccines for melanoma, brain tumors, pancreatic cancer, etc.) However, even those therapies lose their effectiveness because cancer cells mutate. Every cell division is an opportunity to introduce more mutations to its offspring. Often times, those mutations provide survival benefit to their offspring (evolution).

      Most approaches to treating cancer (even the purported approach of alternative therapies) involves killing cancer cells not combating the genetic defect or associated protein product produced. There currently is no way to fix genetic mutations.

      Hereditary diseases such as Down's syndrome, cyctic fibrosis, etc., are caused by mutations to one or more genes. There are no cures to these diseases or any hereditary disease. There is NO current way to fix the genome. These diseases involve a mutated but mostly static genome (like a still target). In cancer, genetic instability and further mutations is common in advanced stages (like moving target).

      There has been progress in combatting cancer at the genetic level by drugs which bind to the protein produced by the mutated gene. The protein is like an instruction. Binding to the protein is like preventing the (bad) instruction from getting delivered. Some of these targeted therapies currently on the market are Gleevec, Sprycel and, Tasigna for the protein product of the Abl-Bcr oncogene in most CML, some ALL and, GIST. So, some progress has been made but, it is a very slow progress.

      Hopefully, this will give you some insight as to why cancer will NOT be cured by one drug. Each different cancer must be treated differently. It is quite a complex problem with thousands of people studying the many different aspects of cancer.

  6. QUESTION:
    Malignant (very harmfull) Melanoma is a dangerous skin cancer. Despite many years of intensive laboratory and?
    clinical research, the greatest chance of cure is in the early surgical resection of thin tumors, in allopathic treatment. But anybody is there who has reliable knowledge of alternative system of treatment to cure this ailment?

    • ANSWER:
      If there was an alternative treatment that worked it would not be alternative.

  7. QUESTION:
    Is there any cure for cancer vthat works?What about the claims of HSI,Health Science Institute?
    I have a friend dying from melanoma cancer. thanks nev

    • ANSWER:
      Unfortunately surgery performed at an eary stage is the only effective treatment for melanoma we have. Trials are ongoing to develop treatment of metastatic melanoma, but we are not where we want to be yet.

      Unfortunately the Gerson regimen suggested by katkatkat is useless too. No controlled studies have been done - only some case series. And even Gerson’s own highly profiled 50 cases are really not that convincing upon scrutiny: http://www.users.on.net/~pmoran/cancer/Gerson.htm The idea that Coffee enemas could be useful as treatment of disease was not all that revolutionary when Gerson developed his idea. It had been in use in conventional medicine since 1917, and was still in use in the early 1970s.

      One study is sometimes presented as one showing positive effect of Gerson Therapy for malignant melanoma: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9359807 Some even say that the only thing this study needs is replication by an independent research team. First of all most patients had undergone surgery, so the study is not about the effect of the Gerson therapy as the only treatment. And if one takes a closer look at the full paper, biases in favour of the therapy become apparent:

      1) Of 235 patients follow up was only possible in 153 patients. How many of the untraceable 82 were dead?
      2) The proportion of stage III patients who had stage IIIC (Very high mortality rate) were not given.
      3) None of their stage IVB patients survived, making their stage IV 5-year survival approximately 7% (It is around 10% in large conventional studies)
      4) An undisclosed number of patients were recruited through newspaper advertisements. No need to explain what that does to the reported survival rate.

      In short: Even the best studies do not support any effect of the Gerson therapy.

      Some proponents claim that this is a perfectly safe therapy. This is also wrong. Most complications are related to the coffee enemas, but also the diet can be a problem: http://www.cancerhelp.org.uk/about-cancer/treatment/complementary-alternative/therapies/gerson-therapy#sfx

      It has been compared to chemotherapy in the palliative setting: http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJM199104253241706#t=article
      The patients who received the Gerson therapy had a poorer quality of life.
      And in this study: http://jco.ascopubs.org/content/28/12/2058.full the researcers looked at the survival in patients with stage III and IV pancreas cancer who had either conventional chemotherapy or Gonzales therapy, which is similar to Gerson therapy. The patients who had the Gonzales treatment lived shorter, and had a poorer quality of life.

  8. QUESTION:
    What is the medicine Protocel that might have promise in regard to cancer?

    • ANSWER:
      The Protocel cancer treatment is an alternative method that some people have used since the 1930s to treat various types of cancers.

      A Brief History of Protocel
      In 1936, American chemist Jim Sheridan developed a non-toxic liquid formula that he purported treats cancer and certain viral infections as well as speeds up the healing process for those suffering with devastating illnesses. For several decades, Sheridan continued to test his formula on lab mice with tumors to study its effects and success rate before attempting to get it approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in human cancer patients. It was first called Entelev and then later was renamed Cancell when modifications were made to the formula to improve its effects. Unfortunately, as of 1989, Protocel is not approved for use in the United States in the treatment of cancers and viruses.

      How protocel works
      The Protocel formula reportedly works by targeting the anaerobic cell respiration of cancer and virus cells. In other words, it interferes with the strength of cancer and viral cell growth by essentially suffocating these harmful cells and weakening their affect on other healthy cells. Protocel has also been tested on other harmful cells with limited success. The idea with Protocel is that if the cancer or viral cells can be disabled, the growth and strength of viruses, cancerous tumors and other forms of malignant cells can be reduced, giving other forms of cancer and virus treatment such as chemotherapy and anti-viral medications the chance to work. This is in contrast with traditional cancer treatments which kill all cells, healthy and cancerous. The Protocel works just on the cancer cells directly to disable them and destroy their effect on the body as a whole.

      However miraculous Protocel may sound, it has not been legally approved by the FDA for use in cancer patients in the United States. Protocel is not a magic cure as it will not treat all forms of cancer, such as ovarian cancer, internal melanomas and desmoid tumors, nor should it be used on any cancers of the brain. Protocel can also cause negative reactions in patients using other forms of cancer therapies. Just as in any type of medical treatment, Protocel should not be used in pregnant or nursing patients as the effects on the unborn are not known at this time. Protocel has been shown to have many dietary counter-indications as well. However, there is hope that with further research and development, Protocel may be another promising tool that medical science can use to treat incurable or difficult cancers in the future.
      http://www.cancershield.net/id56.html

      PROTOCEL AND CANTRON
      A second approach to healing cancer naturally is the use of a relatively inexpensive, liquid remedy called Protocel. At this time, Protocel is available via the internet. The cost is about .00 per month or so. A variant on Protocel is called Cantron. It may not be quite as strong, but reports indicates that it is helpful, and it is even less expensive.

      Origins of Protocel. Protocel was developed almost 50 years ago by Jim Sheridan, a chemist by training. Sheridan lived in the Detroit, Michigan area. He originally called the formula Entelev and later it was called Cancell. Protocel is the latest and the best version of it. Cantron is very similar and seems to work okay, too. Jim Sheridan worked closely with William Koch, MD. Koch was a brilliant doctor who, for a time, was the head of the Detroit Women’s Hospital. Dr. Koch was an amazing doctor and wrote a series of books that are mentioned at the end of this article. His case histories of cancer cures are unique in my experience. He, too, knew that most cancer is trophoblast. He wrote an entire book about what he called “the cancer parasite”.

      How Protocel Works. Protocel works by a distinct method not unlike pancreatic enzymes, but different in a few respects. Protocel disables the energy-producing mechanism of the trophoblast, and only the trophoblast. This is an anaerobic, glucose-based metabolism that is subject to disruption by Protocel and this product alone. In contrast, pancreatic enzymes seem to disable the trophoblast by a different mechanism having to do with catalase, hydrogen peroxide and cell destruction.

  9. QUESTION:
    how to convince dad on nutritional medicine gerson therapy?
    my dad is a skeptical person and i want to convince him of nutritional medicine but i don't know how with talking to him. I know about the gerson therapy and how it can treat cancer and depression and other diseases he says i have to convince him and he is a little angry because his dad died from some heart disease and my moms dad died from cancer. The thing is i did not have this information about the therapy. Surely enough they went with the traditional route of chemotherapy and surgery and they both got worse and died. my dad does not believe that you can use nutrients to cure diseases any suggestions of how to do it?

    • ANSWER:
      It is you who need to learn why we know that Gerson therapy is useless.

  10. QUESTION:
    What about this healing power of sun?
    3 years ago, I had 2 basal cell cancers removed, then I learned about the healing power of the sun by Dr. Liberman. His website states.. "Jacobs Liberman, O.D., Ph.D., challenges the modem myth that the sun is dangerous to our well-being. The sun was once used as a general tonic to heal almost everything and man has run nacked on this planet under the sun for centuries. The sun provides the basis for all life on earth. The sun is the source of energy for all plants, and indirectly, for all animals. If the sun causes cancer, man wouldn't be here today. Contrary to popular belief, sunbathing actually helps heal cancer of the skin while sunblock increases cancer risk."

    I have spent all my time in the sun and been avoiding sunblock, like ordered, but since i've had 2 more basal cell cancers removed and have a lesion that looks like melanoma. is it possible that this alternative medicine guru could be wrong? How?

    • ANSWER:
      that is insane. when was it used as a cure? when there was a much thicker ozone layer? when people knew nothing about cancer or science and died at 35? if you spend time in the sun you will get wrinkles and melanoma (skin cancer.) no doubt about it. completely, definetly. this person is CRAZY! do not do this.

  11. QUESTION:
    If I only put sunscreen on moles?
    I have band camp from 9am-10pm and am aquiring an impressive tan/sunburn(s). But I'm worried about skin cancer. If I put 50+ sunscreen just on moles will it reduce the risk or am I being foolish? And what are some safe alternatives that parents would approve of? Thank you so much!

    • ANSWER:
      No prudent parent can approve Ur actions. Why because, U r driving Urself towards fast illness.

      Moles*-identification marks-are birth marks given by the God to most of the human beings. Unless and until U note any change in the size, color and shape; nothing to be panicky. I'm 63+ “young” with all the organs intact and functioning up to optimum levels. I have more than 100 moles on my body, covering every organ, since birth. Prudent to take it easy and forget. As per Indian sentiment, a person with moles on gonads is blessed with lot of libido; which is totally satiated for life.

      When the sun shines on bare skin, your body makes its own vitamin D. This is the major source of vitamin D, but it's not enough for many people. Fair-skinned people might get enough in 5-10 minutes on a sunny day, a few times a week. But cloudy days, the low light of winter, and the use of sun block (important to avoid skin cancer) all interfere. Older people and those with darker skin tones don’t make as much from sun exposure. Experts say it's better to rely on food and supplements. Tanning drives U towards melanoma, skin cancers, etc..

      How to prevent Sunburn* & scope for consequential skin cancer, Melanoma, etc: Expose Ur body and or the affected parts within 90 minutes from sunrise & within 60 minutes before sunset. During strong winds, no exposure to sunlight, please. Any extra exposure shall be @ Ur own risk for skin cancer/melanoma..

      OR

      Much before, it is too late, prudent* to see a general surgeon/local homeopath/dermatologist for physical examination, relevant investigations, accurate diagnosis and permanent cure by medication and or surgical interference.

  13. QUESTION:
    I have been diagnosed with multiple melanoma. Anyone out there with any advice?
    The reason that I am asking for advice is becasue I've had already two bone marrow tests performed on me (which are very painful) yet the doctor's tell me that since this is a slow growing cancer, all I can do for now is be monitered (blood work/24 hr urine) until the disease progresses. What should I do? There is no cure for this disease.

    • ANSWER:
      I am truly sorry that you have this disease. I watched my mother-in-law struggle for 7 years. She subjected herself to all the chemical cocktails they had to offer and was miserable most of the time. I suggest that you live your life to the fullest right now. Do what you want to do and find out who you are. Any goofy thing you have wanted to do, go and do. I would also look for an alternative health practitioner who will have many herbal treatments and other suggestions for dealing with this disease without chemical cocktails. I never found that the chemical cocktails helped my mother in law. Multiple myloma tends to have long periods of remission and I believe these remissions are due to our state of mind. If you feel good and generate this feeling throughout your body, the remission can be longer.

  14. QUESTION:
    cases of remission without treatment?
    There are stories of people who claim that their alternative treatment/lifestyle/religion had "cured" them of cancer, even though this is not established by clinical studies. I'd like to consider the null hypothesis: is there typically a percentage of patients whose bodies, after a diagnosis of cancer, are apparently able to suppress or even reverse the progression of the disease despite a lack of traditional treatment such as chemotherapy?

    • ANSWER:
      Spontaneous resolution of malignancies is well-described for a number of cancers (like melanoma and lymphoma). It is uncommon, unpredictable, but very interesting.

  15. QUESTION:
    Any alternative Melanoma cures?
    Time is running out.

    • ANSWER:
      There absolutely are natural and alternative therapies which can beat melanoma, although you must understand that there is no cure which works 100% of the time for all people or all cancers. However, oleander extract (which is available as a herbal supplement, Sutherlandia OPC, as well as a patented medicine which is in FDA trials and avialable by FDA exception rule) has had wonderful success against melanoma - particularly when combined with an overall cancer fighting protocol that includes other important elements such as diet, lifestyle, other cancer fighting and immune boosting supplements and removal of stress.

      There are many alternative protocols which work well against cancer. The one I suggest based on my own research and experience can be found here:

      "Healing Illness - A Natural Anti-Cancer Protocol"
      http://www.naturalnews.com/022808_cancer_health_immune_system.html

      I might also add that the non-commercial Yahoo health group I host has almost1400 members and is over 5 years old now. Virtually everyone I know who has joined the group with at least a few months of estimated survival left and who has not had their organs and natural immune systems too heavily damaged by prior chemo and/or radiation is still alive and most are doing well.

  16. QUESTION:
    Can melanoma be cured?
    I just need to know if anyone has ever cured themselves of melanoma?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes It can!
      “People are often sceptical when I tell my story. Four years ago I was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma (the final and almost-always fatal kind). I chose to treat it solely with alternative therapies and powerful positive thinking.
      Now, four years later, I'm cancer-free."

  17. QUESTION:
    Anyone had a local wide incision for a stage 1 melanoma?
    I have to get it done next week and was wondering how big of a scar I can expect to have on my shoulder as a result??

      Hi Muzman

      I realize this is not the answer you're looking for, but this could be valuable information in the future for you.

      Natural Cures

      Aromatherapy: Should sunburn occur, spray the affected area with lavender and chamomile. To prevent blistering, also massage two to three drops of lavender oil directly into the affected area.

      Flower Essences: Rescue Remedy Cream® applied topically helps soothe pain and quicken healing time.

      Herbs: Apply cool aloe vera gel liberally to the sunburnt area. If you are badly sunburnt, apply a salve made with St. John`s wort and calendula flowers.

      Homeopathy: Natrum mur. is a useful homeopathic remedy for preventing sunburn, while Urtica Urens and Rhus tox can help speed recovery after sunburn occurs. Calendula lotion applied topically is also helpful.

      Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment. We suggest several at-home hydrotherapy treatments. Please seek the advice of your alternative health care practitioner before undergoing these procedures to make sure they are appropriate for you.
      *Purified water is essential for any hydrotherapy treatment. Remedies for Treating Chlorinated Bath Water offers clear instructions and recommendations.

      Juice Therapy: Carrot juice can help speed recovery.

      Lifestyle: The best treatment of sunburn is prevention. Your initial exposure to sun in the summer should be limited to 30 minutes during midday sun. The best time to be out in the sun is before 11 a.m. and after 3 p.m. being outside on cloudy summer days and foggy winter days, especially at higher altitudes, carries a greater risk of sunburn due to the same amount of ultraviolet exposure. Sunlight reflecting off of water, metal, snow, sand, and silvery objects can increase the risk of sunburn. Repeated overexposure to the sun and sunburns increases aging of the skin and increases risk of skin cancers.

      Nutritional Supplementation: Mix the following together: vitamin A, vitamin E, essential fatty acids, zinc oxide, and aloe gel, and apply topically to the affected area. The following nurtrients taken orally can also be helpful: vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, and potassium.

      Sunscreens: Although sunscreens have for years been touted as a preventive measure to protect against melanoma (skin cancer), new research indicates that sunscreens themselves can be instrumental in causing melanoma because of how they prevent the skin from producing vitamin D, an essential hormone-like nutrient that helps to inhibit the growth of melanoma and other cancers. The new research debunks the claim that sunscreens prevent cancer in humans. All they do is prevent sunburn. Moreover, research also shows that the rise in melanoma rates have been directly proportional to the sales rates of sunscreens. A more protective method is to avoid direct sunlight around an hour before and three hours after noon and/or to wear protective head gear (hats, visors, scarves, etc.) when outdoors.

      Topical Treatment: Apply a mixture of two parts apple cider vinegar and one part extra virgin olive oil to the affected area. This will help soothe the pain and hasten the healing process. PABA cream applied topically can also be helpful, as can the gel from a feshly cut aloe vera leaf.

      Alternative Professional Care
      If your symptoms persist despite the above measures, seek the help of a qualified health professional. The following professional care therapies have all been shown to be useful for treating sunburn: Naturopathic Medicine, Oxygen Therapy (external Ozone Therapy), and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

      Best of health to you.

      Cheers

  18. QUESTION:
    Cures for cancer?
    my mum has melanoma, skin cancer, so i was just wondering if anyone knows any cures for it, other than praying cos we're doing that already and surgery cos shes had that about three times before and it came bak anyway. bt if anyone knows anything else i would rly apreciate it!
    thanks
    she was going to have sergery again but the docters found out that the cancer is already in 3 different organs, so they can't do anything for her

    • ANSWER:
      Traditional or conventional treatment options may include surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, and immunotherapy.

      The terms "complementary" and "alternative" are often used interchangeably, when in fact they are two different therapies. Complementary therapies such as acupuncture, aromatherapy, art therapy, counseling, massage, meditation, etc. are therapies which are given alongside conventional cancer treatments. The former, however, does not replace the latter. They play a supportive role and are only used in addition to standard treatments. Some commonly used methods of complementary therapy include mind-body control interventions such as visualization or relaxation; manual healing, including acupressure and massage; homeopathy; vitamins or herbal products; and acupuncture. Alternative therapies, on the other hand, are used instead of conventional treatments. Electromagnetic therapy, essiac (a mixture of herbs), iscador (mistletoe extract) and gerson therapy are some examples of alternative treatments.

  19. QUESTION:
    My sister-in-law is throwing a beef-n-beer benefit in my honor. Do I go?
    I was diagnosed with stage 3 melanoma in June of '05. I went through surgery to remove the involved lymph nodes and 3 rounds of bio-chemotherapy. I returned to work, then found out that the cancer had returned, had metastized (sp?) to my brain and bone, and that it is now stage 4. I did Gamma Knife radiation to the three tumors in my brain, then radiation to my brain, spine & rib cage. I also did one round of chemotherapy that breaks the blood brain barrier. I am also taking some alternative approaches to "curing" myself. So, my sister-in-law is throwing a beef-n-beer to help my husband & I with mt medical bills. Do I attend?

    • ANSWER:
      Being in the medical field, my answer to you would be go if you feel you can attend. The party is given to you in your honor of being a strong person. And hopefully raise money for your expenses. Others will understand if you are unable to go. At this point you need to take care of youself. Appreciate the fact you have people who truely care!! The ones that just want food and a party are not worthy of even a thank you note.

      My name is Kim.The best of luck to you. Please let me know how you are really doing, I'd love to hear from you.

  21. QUESTION:
    Metastatic Melanoma patients chance of survival through BioChemotherapy?
    My dad has Metastatic Melanoma stage four, and is currently being treated. Something called Biochemotherapy. I read a medical document stating patients taking this treatment will live longer. Stats: Overall response rates in phase II trials are 40% to 60% with complete responses of 10% to 20% and median survivals in the 11- to 12-month range. Modifications of concurrent biochemotherapy regimens have maintained efficacy and reduced toxicity. Small phase III trials suggest a survival advantage of biochemotherapy (P=.05).
    His doctor says he will live two to six months, but I want to help him out by finding an alternative cure that will extend his life span. please tell me taht Chemobiotherapy works for ALL patients...

    • ANSWER:
      Anyone that tells you any treatment works in all situations is not telling you the truth. There is no alternative cure for metastatic melanoma. Your father has an aggressive cancer but it appears he is receiving cutting edge treatment for it. Hopefully he will be in the percentile that responds. That is the best you can hope for and that is the truth. good luck to you both

  22. QUESTION:
    I have stage 4 metastatic melanoma. In my lungs. If you've had, any treatments to try?

    • ANSWER:
      there are many things that can cure cancer but doctor do not tell about them. my advice to u is to read by yourself through the net and to take the advice of doctors who believe in alternative medicine.and take second and third and forth opinions ( remember polite patients always lose ) Be careful not to enroll in any trial. simply because they most of the time have two groups. one use the medicine and the other placebo. you will not know which one is yours. you may spend the time using nothing. i read things about co q 10 in high doses, and about noni juice . but the most amazing thing is vitamin B17.there are many sites which write about it as a treatment for all cancers. Just write B17 in the search engine and you will find thousands sites talk about it. also during this time

      CONSUME

      a lot of garlic, ginger, cabbage , grapes , oranges , onions , olive oil, honey, dates , broccoli, melon, boiled or baked potatoes, sweet potatoes, yellow melon, dark chocolate( without sugar), a lot of water, green tea, flax seed noni juice and supplements as selenium, co q 10 , vitamin C, A , B , Magnesium,

      AVOID
      smoking
      sweets
      white floor, white rice
      meat, eggs, cheese, yogurt, chickens
      fried food
      oils except ( olive oil, coconut oil and sesame

      Still the most important thing is praying

      good luck

  23. QUESTION:
    Recurring melanoma?
    My mom has recurring melanoma. She had a lump removed just above ankle. The doctor said there is more cancer around "lump" area but it is difficult to remove. She is seeing a specialist next week. A PET Scan said the rest of her body was clear of cancer. The info on WebMD.com does not seem vey promising for recurring melanoma, yet the negative PET scan gives us hope. Any suggestions from those of you having dealt with similar situation? Thanks in Advance.

    • ANSWER:
      Also in the alternative medicine arena--

      In 1990, I had Hodgkin's Lymphoma, stage 3-B, but I've survived. My doctors were great people, but they really couldn't tell me squat about cancer. During the year in treatment, I started learning about alternative medicine.

      Here's what I've figured out--FIRST, somebody--probably connected to the AMA--is getting my answers deleted as 'not a question or an answer', because they don't want you to know about this. So if you want to keep this information, you need to copy it to a wordpad document quickly, before it disappears. Hopefully, they'll give up and stop that nonsense soon, but I wouldn't count on it. Now, here goes--

      Cancer is caused by poor nutrition (including oxygen), which leads to a compromised immune system, and by stressors. Stressors can be environmental, like heavy metals, pesticides, food additives, electromagnetic waves or pollution. They can be internal things like emotional or job stress, or poisonous people in our lives. Aging and lack of exercise are also contributing factors.

      Our bodies have 60 trillion--yes, trillion--cells, and there are always some mutating into cancer cells, but a healthy immune system kills them before they have a chance to get a foothold in the body.
      It takes a LONG time, usually, or an exrtaordinary amount of stressors, to degrade the immune system to the point where it won't do its job, but once cancer has formed, it will generally spread rapidly.

      THIS IS IMPORTANT! There are ways to BEAT cancer that the AMA is keeping from the American public, that are currently being used in Europe and around the world! Here are some great books on the subject that is getting hard to find--

      "The Cure for All Cancers", ISBN 0963632825
      "A Cancer Therapy", ISBN 0882681052
      "Oxygen Therapies", ISBN 0962052701
      "Hydrogen Peroxide--Medical Miracle", ISBN 1885236077
      "The Natural Cure for Cancer--Germanium", ISBN 0533071410
      "Killing Cancer", ISBN 0705000966

      Type 'used books' into your browser and find a good site, then type in the ISBN numbers and get some great help cheap.

      I know of people whose cancer has 'spontaneously remitted' (WENT AWAY for no known reason) after they went on programs of herbs and nutrition that restart our immune systems.

      The American Medical Association (AMA) and the pharmaceutical companies control medical law and the FDA in this country with a revolving door policy and heavy lobbying. In 2004, medicine was a 1.1 TRILLION dollar business--about 1/4th of the total economy. That's just too big to care about individuals. You and your family must look out for yourselves to stand a chance of being healthy.

      This is not a joke, and I'm not selling anything. Look into it. Best of luck

  24. QUESTION:
    Is there really a cure for cancer?
    I just find it really hard to believe that as advanced as we are that there is no cure for cancer. Some people believe its population control. They make billions of dollars from cancer not having a cure. Has anyone heard of the Garson institute. I saw a documentary on it on netflix. It's illegal in the states so their institute is right over the Mexican border. What's funny is they fight cancer by eating all organic and natrual things. They do not use medication or chemo or radiology. They help strengthen the immune system to make it able to fight the cancer. Because your immune system is what controls cancer. ( and yes it has saved lives!) people that were given a few months to live that went to the garson instituted beat it and have been alive for years after giving a death sentence in months. So why is this illegal in America it's all natrual. Just doesn't make sense.

    http://www.gerson.org/
    Haha you ask me If I'm unintelligent much. Listen to your judmental self! Talking about my God and here you are judging people. I asked a question I was just curiouser about this because I have a very dear friend dying of cancer she's not expected to make it past this weekend. Some people were discussing this topic and I was just wondering what other people thought. I didn't come on here for your childish judgement I came on Here to get some input to educate myself a little more about all of this. Thank you to the very first answer you wernt judmental and tried to educated me more on all of this. I will be giving you 10 points. have a wonderful day.

    • ANSWER:
      Cancer is a collective term for approximately 200 different diseases. Every cell type in your body can (in principle) develop into its own type of cancer. On top of that individual cancer cells in every cancer are also different from one another. On top of that, the cancer cells interact in very complex ways with the surrounding cells. So it is not all that surprising that we don't have, and most likely won’t find a single cure for all cancers.

      On the internet there are many claims of miraculous "natural" cancer cures that are being suppressed. Here some of them are listed, with links to sites explaining what is wrong with them: http://anaximperator.wordpress.com/2011/02/25/suppressed-by-scientists-and-big-pharma-the-hidden-cancer-cure-but-which-one/

      The Gerson therapy is not the miracle cure that the persuasive video claims. No controlled studies have been done - only some case series. And even Gerson’s own highly profiled 50 cases are really not that convincing upon scrutiny: http://www.users.on.net/~pmoran/cancer/Gerson.htm The idea that Coffee enemas could be useful as treatment of disease was not all that revolutionary when Gerson developed his idea. It had been in use in conventional medicine since 1917, and was still in use in the early 1970s.

      One study is sometimes presented as one showing positive effect of Gerson Therapy for malignant melanoma: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9359807 Some even say that the only thing this study needs is replication by an independent research team. First of all most patients had undergone surgery, so the study is not about the effect of the Gerson therapy as the only treatment. And if one takes a closer look at the full paper, biases in favour of the therapy become apparent:

      1) Of 235 patients follow up was only possible in 153 patients. How many of the untraceable 82 were dead?
      2) The proportion of stage III patients who had stage IIIC (Very high mortality rate) were not given.
      3) None of their stage IVB patients survived, making their stage IV 5-year survival approximately 7% (It is around 10% in large conventional studies).

      In short: Even the best studies do not support any effect of the Gerson therapy.

      Some proponents claim that this is a perfectly safe therapy. This is also wrong. Most complications are related to the coffee enemas, but also the diet can be a problem: http://www.cancerhelp.org.uk/about-cancer/treatment/complementary-alternative/therapies/gerson-therapy#sfx

      It has been compared to chemotherapy in the palliative setting: http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJM199104253241706#t=article
      The patients who received the Gerson therapy had a poorer quality of life.

  25. QUESTION:
    Is cancer a chronic metabolic disease which can be cured, but is perpetuated by our health /drugs industry?
    Cancer is a chronic metabolic dicease, it is a nutrional problem linked to our typical westernized diet.. Are science & the medical associations, perpetuating the problem because there is big money to be made from death and expensive drug treatments.
    Certain, grasses, seeds, and kernels contain in nitrylocide (viatmin b17) which is anti cancerous- it is toxic to cancer only and controls the bodies self healing mechanism using estrogen. All cancer starts in muccus mebranes- due to a malifunction of that cell. But the body has a complex anti cancer mechanism but only works when you eat the right stuff.
    Are we supposed to eat the bitter seeds as well as the fruit flesh, skin. and plith. Longevitity is in the apricot seed/salmon berry, many jungle tribes and eskimos dont get cancer!
    Over the last 50 years there is less B17 in the meat we eat (because the animal eats less natural grass), and the cancer rate has risen.

    http://video.google.co.uk/videoplay?docid=4312930190281243507
    TinyMe thats a very quick conclusion, i'm afraid you are totally wrong. If you are in the medical profession you may be part of the problem.
    i'd ask you to sign you prozac sponsored post it note and start again.
    Every cancer you deal with is more or less a secondary one (afetr it has spread from a specific site) primary cancers always start in a muccus membrane first.
    Socially,narcissistic. Thank You, i'm glad you are not the type to have your eyes wide shut. I have the expertise of genetic scienistst and leading alternative helath practitioners plus my own personal experince in the NHS to understand the huge level of corruption in this sector.
    Pammy please watch the video in my link- its an hour long, drink lots of pure water too, if you bless before you drink it also it takes on healing properties it takes the impression your projected thought. (yes sounds crazy but its another secret- water is a living crystalline form- yes H2O-the ash of burning Hyrdogen in oxygen )

    B17 can be found in mosts bitter seeds-esecially Apricot seeds.Unfortunatley the AMA and BMA (/British medical Association) have outlawed its prescription and destroyed the careers of renegade GP's who have sung its praises.

    There is big money to be made in the NHS if you can run it like a business-but it only works if you can forecast the life expectancy and death of individuals in that system.

    This is why the associated companies benefit from this relationship.
    Alex are siting secondary cancers? surely! The thorax has muccus mebranes too. Its all interlinked. its like saying the pistons of a car is not part of the engine. You need a holistic approach to medicine not a study of one specialism in isolation.
    POSITION OF THE CANCER CELL
    IN THE LIFE-CYCLE
    In accounting for the nature and origin of the single cell type comprising the constant malignant component in the varying morphological exhibitions of cancer, we find one of two alternatives open. The definitively malignant cell either has its normal counterpart in the life-cycle or the malignant cell is without a normal cellular counterpart and, therefore, arises as a spontaneous generation.
    Since spontaneous generation is an untenable postulate, the only alternative is that the malignant cell has its counterpart in the life-cycle. The question then arises whether this counterpart is a relatively developed cell or the most primitive cell in the life-cycle. Since the primitivity of the cancer cell is a commonplace, in looking for its cellular counterpart in the life-cycle we turn to the most primitive cell in this cycle. This is the trophoblast cell. Then as a logical corollary of the unitarian thesis, we should find the trophoblast as the constant malignant component in all exhibitions of cancer: the malignancy of the cancer varying directly with its concentration of trophoblast cells and inversely with its concentration of somatic cells.
    If the unitarian thesis is valid, then the most malignant exhibition of cancer possible should be comprised almost completely of frank trophoblast cells; and, in being so comprised, should epitomize the cellular and other phenomena shared by exhibitions of a lesser malignancy. The most highly malignant exhibitions of cancer known are the chorionepitheliomascomprised of frank trophoblast cells, cytologically, endocrinologically and otherwise indistinguishable from normal pregnancy trophoblast cells. If cancer is an unitarian phenomenon whose malignancy is a function of the concentration of trophoblast cells within a given tissue, then the greater the concentration of such cells within a tissue the higher the malignancy
    of the tissue and the more profound its cytological deviation from the cytology normal to the tissue. If the unitarian thesis is valid, then the single exception to this generalization would comprise the most malignant of all exhibitions of cancer: that involving the pathologic exhibition of the normally or "physiologically" malignant pregnancy trophoblast. It is, therefore, most significant that when pregnancy trophoblast is malignantly exhibited as primary uterine chorionepithelioma there is no ascertainable cytological, endocrinological or other intrinsic change whatever from the normal trophoblast cell. As Boyd has phrased it, "microscopically the chorionepithelioma is an exaggeration of the condition normally found in pregnancy."23 All other tumors represent an attenuation of the condition of their normal tissue of origin.
    PROPERTIES OF THE TROPHOBLAST CELL
    But if cancer is, as an unitarian phenomenon, trophoblastic then we should expect to find occasionally in the male---where trophoblast never normally exists---at least some cases in which the failure in somatic resistance to the definitive malignant cell (trophoblast cell) is so complete that the trophoblast is frankly exhibited as such in the fiercely malignant testicular or primary extra-genital chorionepitheliomas.24, 25, 26, 27, 28 The chorionepitheliomas are unquestionably the most malignant tumors in either sex, and the degree of their malignancy is routinely determined by measuring the gonadotrophin their trophoblast cells excrete.29, 30, 31
    If the trophoblast cell, presented outside the normal canalization or checks of pregnancy, is truly the cancer cell, then it must be impossible for the trophoblast cell or its hormone---"chorionic" gonadotrophin---ever to be found in the male or, aside from the canalization of normal pregnancy, in the female except in a malignant fashion. Neither the trophoblast cell nor its hormone has ever been so found except as cancer. And whenever the trophoblast cell or its hormone has been found in the male or the non-pregnant female, the associated malignancy is observed to vary directly with the urinary excretion of trophoblast cell-produced gonadotrophin.
    Even a superficial examination of the trophoblast cell indicates that it possesses such properties of the cancer cell as invasiveness, erosiveness, autonomy and ability to metastasize throughout the organs of the host.32, 33 Indeed, though normally canalized to physiological ends, the pregnancy trophoblast in carrying the conceptus from anatomically outside of the maternal host to implantation within the uterine wall must behave in a profoundly malignant fashion. No malignant cellinvades any tissue any more rapidly and completely than the pregnancy trophoblast does the human uterus in he first few weeks of gestation.
    If the trophoblast cell, then, is instrinsically malignant, this malignancy should become especially apparent when the trophoblast is removed from the normal extrinsic checks and controls surrounding it in its normal canalization of pregnancy. Maximov is among those who have observed normal pregnancy trophoblast in tissue culture pari passu non-tropho-
    blast.34 He describes as follows a tissue culture preparation of a normal rabbit embryo plus the contiguous trophoblast:
    "From the very first moment of their formation in vitro, the trophoblastic elements, whose function under normal conditions is to destroy, resorb, and penetrate into the uterine mucosa, attack the growing embryonic tissues. They glide between cells through the intercellular spaces, along blood vessels, gnaw large holes in epithelial sheets....Wherever they appear they dissolve, destroy and resorb everything surrounding them. The picture sometimes bears a striking resemblance to chorionepithelioma malignum. As in vitro there is no maternal tissue, the destructive tendencies of the trophoblast are directed toward the net and only available---the embryonic tissue itself. This is rapidly destroyed and totally used up for the nutrition and growth of the trophoblast."
    Maximov's description of the nutritive utilization by the trophoblast of somatic or embryonic tissue in vitro bears a striking parallelism to the following observation of Greenstein35 on the nutritive behavior of the cancer cell:
    "It is, indeed, astonishing that a tumor can thus attach itself to an organism already running downhill in negative nitrogen balance and subsequently grow at the host's further expense."
    Parasitization is eloquently clear in the description given by Maximov and it is implicit in Greenstein's observation. Normal pregnancy trophoblast represents, of course, a parasitization of cells of one genetic constitution by those of another. If cancer is an unitarian and thereby a trophoblastic phenomenon, its parasitic behavior is very easy to understand.
    Were pregnancy trophoblast in vivo or in situ to lack the humorally mediated checking influences that are lacking in vitro then such tissue would expectedly behave as it does in vitro and be exhibited in the fiercely malignant fashion of primary uterine chorionepithelioma.
    Rather than pause here to review in further detail the points of identity between the cancer cell and the trophoblast cell, of which the senior author in a review of over 17,000 papers has been able to catalogue 43, let it suffice to say that we have been unable to find a single point of dissimilarity between the cancer cell and the trophoblast cell. The points of identity, of course, are those shared exclusively by the cancer cell and the trophoblast cell and not shared by any somatic cell.
    Oh and did anybody tell you what happens to the male human
    if you have synthetic female birth control (hormonal contraceptives) in the drinking water?
    He gets hormone imbalances, more Estrogen and in some cases feminization, and testical trouble, icluding lumps and high cancer rates.
    Albert Einstein said he came up with the thery of relativity by imagining himself to be a partical of light travelling through the universe.
    Perhaps we should go right to the very genesis of the cancer cell, and look at the processes from its perspective.

    Too often scientists have the logic on a fixed path- but not the lateral thought and imagination to shed light visulaize something very complex - problems are opportunities, get our heads together and collective intelligence will crack it

    • ANSWER:
      If all cancer starts in mucous membranes, explain Leukaemia (cancer of leukocytes - blood cells), Mesothelioma (cancer of the lining of the thorax), Melanoma (cancer of the skin), Osteosarcoma (cancer of the cells in bone), and tumours such as Myeloma which affect the brain - These are all primary cancers, not metastases or secondaries, and none of these have mucous membranes. Equally, many other cancers such as Lung Ca have various types - Small Cell Cancer, Basal Cell Carcinoma, etc - not all these cells are in the "mucous membrane". Same thing applies to, for example, Bladder Cancer....there's Small and non-Small Cell Ca. of the Bladder, TCC (Transitional Cell Carcinoma), yada yada yada. I could go on.

      I think perhaps you should read up on your subject - at the very least perhaps read up on a definition of "Mucous Membranes" - and the biogenesis of malignant tumours. As I've said, NOT all cancers start in the Mucous Membranes of any organ. Equally, NOT all cancers respond to B-vitamins. It depends on the type of cancer, the location, and varius other factors. Really, you might want to read around the subject a bit before making such sweeping and frankly dangerous generalisations. There's certainly a place for a holistic approach to nutrition, along with complementary and alternative therapies in Oncology (that's cancer medicine), but to lay the blame FOR cancers at the door of medicine/pharmaceutical companies is at best naive and ill-informed, and at worst extremely counter-productive and dangerous. Perhaps you should read a few more books on the subject, and watch less video clips?

  26. QUESTION:
    I have Fibromyalgia and have had cancer 2X. Why do I have joint pain and popping?
    Since I had breast cancer and melanoma and was on Tamoxifen for 5 years, I have had a lot of discomfort all over with pain. Joint pain and popping. I am on several drugs. Cymbalta, Maxide, Synthyroid, Neurotin, Trazadone, Flexiril, and Vicoden - Way too many drugs. The viocdin is for Fibromyalgia. I get 60/mth. The vicodin does very little for my joint pain. I think I might have Carpel Tunnel Syndrome in my left arm. Is it just old age or what?

    • ANSWER:
      Let’s approach the idea from the perspective of a chronic fibromyalgia patient. The fibromyalgia disease is one of the most misunderstood medical issues a person could have the misfortune of being diagnosed with. One of the biggest challenges involved is being diagnosed in the first place. It is characterized by serious pain and chronic fatigue, along with other issues involving depression, anxiety, and a loss of concentration on the mental level. The tough part about this condition is that people with fibromyalgia look completely healthy and this leads to friends, family, and other people looking at the fibromyalgia patient as if they are overreacting or lying about their condition. For someone in constant pain and misery, this cavalier attitude is very upsetting. Here is a bit of a closer look at this still mysterious illness.

      * Causes of fibromyalgia
      * Symptoms of fibromyalgia
      * The treatment of fibromyalgia

      Imagine having a condition that caused severe pain and fatigue along with all kinds of other not so fun symptoms, and then be told that there is no known cause for it. You didn’t do anything to “catch” it and the best doctors in the country can’t even tell you why it is trying to ruin your life. Some experts think fibromyalgia is associated with sleep disorders, while others are convinced that injury to the upper spinal cord is to blame. Researchers are also tossing a few other ideas around as well. Finding a cure for fibromyalgia will be much simpler when someone figures out where it comes from in the first place.

      The most famous symptoms of fibromyalgia are chronic fatigue and pain. Even with a full night’s rest, people with fibromyalgia still feel exhausted and it impacts their daily tasks as well as their relationships both on a personal and professional level. The pain is most often centered in the back of the head, the neck and shoulders, as well as the upper back and chest. Many of the body’s joints are affected as well. The symptoms of fibromyalgia mimic other diseases, making it difficult to diagnose. This means people can suffer for years before finding the correct answer to the problem.

      Chronic fibromyalgia is usually treated with several different types of medications and therapies. Antidepressants are used to combat the lack of quality rest and treat depression if the patient has those symptoms. Over the counter pain relievers are common as well, though they aren’t effective without the other forms of fibromyalgia medications. Many people also use alternative fibromyalgia treatments to help relieve their symptoms as well.

  27. QUESTION:
    A cure for all diseases: Prevention ?
    The Health Care System Lie.

    Half way in the middle of Canada lies the Sleeping Giant, a natural rock formation, a monument to itself, and if you know the story, a story of betrayal and maybe someday a monument to deceptive half-truths, where truths can lie. As the legend goes the truth of the mine of silver was betrayed.

    On June 7th, the Canadian Cancer society announced 'research" indicated that vitamin D can help prevent some 60% of cancers. For decades alternative scientists have suggested that basic and simple methods exist to deal with the cancer problem, however mainstream science in North America has been motivated in finding a patent able profitable treatment, expensive molecular research and expensive treatments; another classic half-truth. Some people don't see prevention as a cure, believing in a cure is treating people with a cancer. But if we prevent cancers, is that not the simplest, and best of possible cures ?

    • ANSWER:
      Your conclusion is sooooooooo right! I couldn't say it better! For almost 5 years I worked for Advanced Viral Research of Canada, and I was in charge of developing protocols for cancer patients and also of supervising patients put under treatment using their biological "drug"--modified high-grade colostrum--, Reticulose, injectable. Though the results were most of the times stoundings, I knew of far better ways to deal with the cancer phenomenom without having to push the patient to pay for such unaffordable treatments.

      For instance, I know some patients of mine and from other colleagues that overcame their cancers--melanomas, glioblastomas, carcinomas--just by fasting on plain water, and some on a combination of selective juicing and water for 3 weeks. Of course, we all know not everybody will have the same outcome, but it amazes me the innate ability of the body to recode the DNA, repair cell damages, regenerate physiological and biochemical paths to the cell's nucleus, and to re-arrange molecular sequences in substances already altered by the course of disease within a given body or organism.

      When a pharmaceutical company "discover" or create a new drug, a chain of beaurocratic steps toward the aceptence and implementaion of the drug will take place where every body involved will get a piece of the cake, except the patient. It is more also about pride, achievement of human genius, recognition, and high-tech capitalism. But we, the consumers, will pay a high price for it: abject ignorance (we're never taught that most diseases are due to a compromised immune system thanks to our false lifestyle), sinful dependance on high-tech medicine to only get symptoms alliviated--in most cases--, no real solutions for the unstoppable train of biological degeneration in the human body, etc.

      Yes, most chronic diseases are treatable with very inexpensive methods of rational and scientific natural treatments. But I am not implying here the false idea that in order to get results one has to keep bying natural products or supplements most of them of very low quality. The idea is understanding how disease evolves out of continuous violations to the biological laws that govern our bodies. And once the casue is traced, then it will be wise to remove it, and use non-invasive and natural procedures to assist the body to re-organize its jeopardized biology.

      In my course of more than 20 years of practise as a Naturopathic Practitioner and Orthomolecular Nutritionist, I have seen countless cases of people assisted by practitioners like me, and whose health conditions improved dramatically after been told by conventional physicians that their diseases had no ways to be reversed.

      I do see a need to have conventional medicine hanging around, for emergency, or course. But there is not healing in the current system of medicine. They do not believe in a biological approach to health and disease. Tech-medicine is more appealing for many reasons I will not delve in right here and now.

      Thank you!

      Good luck! :)

  28. QUESTION:
    bowel cancer? can it cure itself?
    I have a Christain friend who has bowel cancer, he's not going to go for an operation as he said that he is going to pray to God to cure him, and that God will answer his prays,,, I think that he is taking a huge chance.. But,, true story.. our pastor was diagnosed with bowel cancer, and he prayed to God to cure him with the other pastors and he was cured... he definitely had bowel cancer and i can remember his own son ( a good friend of mine) distraught that his father would not go for an operation, until of course it cured itself...!!

    My other Christain friend is using the Pastor as an example of how God can cure cancer, using this excuse not to have an operation himself,,,

    What i need to know is can bowel cancer cure itself naturally ( without God) , have there being any cases of this recorded?

    My opinion is that what happened our Pastor was a fluke, and it just happened that he prayed to GOD at the same time.
    I need evidence to suggest to my friend this possibility

    • ANSWER:
      Spontaneous remission does happen, but it's very rare indeed.

      William Boyd, a pathologist, documented a large number of such instances in a book he published in 1961. He estimated that approx one in every 100,000 cases of cancer will show spontaneous remission.

      In his documentation collected from data extending over 100 years, more than half the proven cases of spontaneous remission came from four types of tumour: renal-cell cancer, melanoma, neuroblastoma and choriocarcinoma. In the other half of the cases, there were one or two examples in almost every type of cancer.

      So it's possible, but unlikely, that your pastor's cancer went into remission on its own.

      Other possibilities exist; he may have been misdiagnosed; he may have self-diagnosed (some people do) and not had cancer. Or he may have been having some form of treatment; I'm not suggesting he's dishonest, but it often happens that people credit alternative treatments, or prayer, for their remission, and actually forget they have had SOME sort of conventional treatment which has helped.

      If praying was all it took, no believer would die of cancer, and millions do. An atheist like me wouldn't be fit and well almost five years after treatment for advanced, aggressive cancer - I promise you, I didn't say a single prayer.

  30. QUESTION:
    Where can I find scholarly articles online referring to marijuana and cannabis?
    I am writing a research paper and I need to cite my sources. I am having trouble locating studies that have been done to determine that marijuana is in fact not a dangerous drug, especially from scholarly sources. My paper is about synthetic legal drugs like bath salts, inhalants, spice, plus alcohol and tobacco - all of which have killed millions. This argument will support my argument that marijuana SHOULD be legal, for safety reasons, to boost the economy, and because it is the lesser of almost ALL evils regarding the drug world. It's because of the prohibition of cannabis, an essentially safe drug when used moderately, that kids are forced to pursue these kinds of dangerous legal highs Help is appreciated. 10 points to the best answer!

    • ANSWER:
      For your section about synthetic marijuana, and how its nothing like real marijuana, and how its sending scores people to the hospitals... use http://www.k2info.org/. it's a good resource on that kind of information. You can probably write your whole paper using the articles that site sources.

      Marijuana has never killed a single person, but until its legalized people will always try to find an alternative.

      Marijuana has been known to directly cure melanomas and other skin cancers... Google that and you will find a ton of information.

  31. QUESTION:
    Vertebral compression fractures?
    I had an x-ray done on July 2, this year. It said that I had anterior wedging of several mid thoracic vertebral bodies, the most severely affected having lost 35% height anteriorly, consistent with a mild wedge compression fracture. I am in severe, chronic pain, and I'm unable to do ANY physical exercise or physiotherapy. I am basically immobilized/bedridden due to malignant degenerative pain, despite painkillers.. My question is: If I simply "do nothing", will I keep losing height of the fractured vertebrae? It was 35% loss on July 2, will it be 40% on September 2? How rapidly will it lose height? I cannot "do" anything. It just keeps degenerating. With each month going by, how much height will I be losing? By January 2 2013, could I lose 50%? I'm worried because they say that they have to put you in traction if it gets that bad. Is this true? Thanks for your time.
