Gentle, Non-toxic Healing Of Cancer Is Not Only Possible
The incidence of breast cancer is raising and the numbers are really appalling. National Cancer institute has estimated that around 300,000 women are diagnosed with this disease every year. The incidence has gone from 1 in 30 before 50 years to 1 in 8 now. Conventional medicine despite the huge hype surrounding it has not done anything much to successfully prevent or treat breast cancer. If you get this disease today you will get far more treatment than what you would have got 50 years ago. You and your insurance company will pay a lot of money and may gain few years of life that will invariably of very poor quality.
It is now established that conventional methods of treatment like radiation, chemotherapy and tamoxifen are not really working in the long run. They are being used because the conventional medical field and oncologists do not know what else to do. If you have an invasive or nonlocal breast cancer your chances of death are one in three exactly the same ratio that was prevalent 50 years ago. So what is left for the medical doctor to do? The same old choice of surgical removal of cancer they were doing before 50 years.
The incidence of breast cancer which is around 300,000 per year as of 2008 is all set to grow to 350,000 a year by 2015. This is one growth rate that should strike fear in all of us. The key to reducing the incidence of breast cancer is prevention. But the prevention of this ailment by alternative methods is dismissed as unscientific by medical professionals. Conventional medical therapies do not suggest anything beyond chemotherapy, radiation, and tamoxifen.
No one talks about prevention of breast cancer including National Cancer Institute. But the logic is when we know what causes this disease we should of course know what prevents it. To put it briefly a healthy diet can surely reduce the chances of getting this disease. But again all the healthy diet, right type of physical activity and lifestyle cannot undo the damage done to the breast tissue caused by years of estrogen dominance and heavy exposure to pesticides and solvents.
