Article 1 of 8 on cancer.
Last time I referred to cancer as being a ‘wake-up call’. What do you think I mean by that?
In my belief system cancer is just a message telling you that you are abusing your body.
Now hold on a minute before you close this post in disgust.
I’m not alone in this belief, there are countless medical doctors around the world who hold the same opinion.
In fact, every double-blind study conducted controls for the ‘placebo’ effect.
The placebo effect is a positive outcome based on the patient’s belief in the doctor or the medicine – in this case, a sugar pill.
Watch just the first four and a half minutes of this video for a startling example of it:
Dr Lissa Rankin
The opposite of the placebo effect is the ‘nocebo effect’ – the negative result of a doctor’s careless pronouncement.
Watch the rest of Dr Rankin’s video to find out more.
Components of chronic degenerative disease
As mentioned last time, there are several components to chronic degenerative disease:
– Physical (usually metabolic or diet related)
– Mental/emotional (mind/belief related)
– Spiritual (disconnection from the Divine)
– Energetic (disruption in the energy system of the body)
If you’ve watched Dr Rankin’s video, you’ve seen how powerful your mind is in controlling your body – positively and negatively.
So doing due diligence (researching thoroughly) prior to starting any treatment can have a huge impact on the outcome.
In 1995 I lost a close friend to cancer and decided to educate myself on it. I was shocked and angry about what I learned.
And if you have a friend or a loved one facing a cancer challenge, I urge you to firstly educate yourself, then them.
Here’s a good starting place:
9 part documentary series
In this series, medical doctors and professionals from around the world are interviewed about contemporary and alternative cancer treatments.
It’s about giving you enough information to be able to make a value judgement as to the best course for you.
And if you do choose the ‘standard of care’ (surgery/chemo/radiation) you will have powerful options to reduce the side effects.
For me, the most uplifting part is the people who have conquered cancer sharing their stories. It gives a real sense of hope.
Cancer reflects a weakened immune system
Cancer is just one of many chronic degenerative diseases that reflect a weakened immune system and the principles shared in the series can be applied to most of them.
Dr Terry Wahls (see the last post) is one of the many doctors that are now recognising the pivotal role diet plays in health.
And probably most important of all, the series teaches you how to be proactive in taking responsibility for your own health and wellbeing.
No, cancer is not a death sentence. It’s an opportunity to do some serious self-reflection/education then take appropriate action.
Physics tells us that you can’t have an effect without a cause. Your responsibility is the find the cause rather than just treat the symptoms.
Once you know what causes cancer you are empowered to do something about it. And no one else can do it for you.
I could go on and on but it’s a big subject. In fact, this is the first in an eight-part series on cancer.
What are your thoughts/beliefs? Do you agree or disagree?
I’d love to hear from you – please leave a comment below.
Until next time, may you enjoy a life of health and happiness.
