  2. The General Mental Health Forum is now a Read Only Forum. As we had two large areas making it difficult for many to find, we decided to combine the Mental Health & the Recovery sections of the forum into Mental Health & Recovery as a whole. Physical Health still remains as it's own area within the entire Recovery area.

    If you are having struggles, need support in a particular area that you aren't finding a specific recovery area forum, you may find the General Struggles forum a great place to post. Any any that is related to emotions, self-esteem, insomnia, anger, relationship dynamics due to mental health and recovery and other issues that don't fit better in another forum would be examples of topics that might go there.

    If you have spiritual issues related to a mental health and recovery issue, please use the Recovery Related Spiritual Advice forum. This forum is designed to be like Christian Advice, only for recovery type of issues. Recovery being like a family in many ways, allows us to support one another together. May you be blessed today and each day.

    Hi,

    I recently found some websites that may be helpful to those who have cancer:

    For cancer fighting strategies specifically:

    Cancer Killers - The Most Effective Supplements For Killing Cancer

    Here is another one that may help too (more about diet that may promote reduction of cancers and other diseases):

    Cancer Testimonies – Raw Food and Green Smoothies | Raw Family

    Obviously, it is recommended to gather information on any strategies described. This post is not meant to serve as medical advice, but as a resource to options that exist.

    God bless.

    I'm sorry but no, realistically these sites cannot be helpful, in fact they are quite dangerous, because they are yet more examples of site full of "alternative cure" gibberish, making the same old tired claims (cure cancer by lowering your pH, magical supplements which kill cancer cells, don't do chemo or radiation, blah blah blah) which are at best unproven or at worst utter nonsense.

    I strongly urge people to keep this in mind. Your life or that of someone you love may hang in the balance. Don't believe that just because something sounds "natural" or "safe" or otherwise warm and fuzzy. Don't believe something is true just because you want it to be true. Go in with both eyes open.

    The biggest thing I have seen in fighting cancer is attitude. It is all about attitude. My Mother was diagnosed with cervical cancer and given 4 months. She thought about it for less than a minute then looked at the Dr and said "nope. I have kids to raise. I refuse!" and she did refuse. She cooked things for her tastes and made sure she always ate.

    Even when chemo and radiation made her sick. She always ate. it didnt matter if it was just ice cream she always ate and gained 4 lbs and didnt lose a lb. They gave her 4 months and she was still going strong growing up her kids for 10 more years.

    After my little brother was married and in his own house she said she told God that she was ready anytime He wanted her. She was then diagnosed with brain cancer with no surgery option. She refused chemo again and radiation this time.

    She died a few months after that quietly at night after saying goodbye to her husband. She was Catholic but I led her to Christ myself and know she is waiting in heaven.

    She said she had to wait to make sure her kids were going to be OK. Call it love or call it attitude but she decided not to quit.

    That to me will always be the way to fight. Take the chemo or radiation if you have to, but never ever give up and get mad if you have to!

    And be sure to eat!

    I've been told to opt for alternative medicines by friends and family, but I have never dared to venture into alternate therapy.

    Here are few tips which you could use

    1. Exercise : No matter what stage of your cancer, exercise at least for 20-30 minutes a day (Brisk walk)

    2. Eat Healthy Food: Quit red meat, Sugar, and "WHITE FLOUR" Products (Highlighting white flour, kindly google why white flour is bad for you)

    3. Stay Positive: Pray, and believe that You can make it.

    4. Do NOT compare your cancer with other people battling cancer, there are 120 types of cancer, not everyone responds to chemotherapy the same way (even if it the same type/stage of cancer)

    5. Keep away from emotional people in your family, make sure there is no room for negative vibes (or people) until you are out of cancer.

    Good advice there, though I think diet is more a question of eating healthy in general vs avoiding a particular food or ingredient.

    I would also add ALWAYS ALWAYS get (at least) a second opinion. Doctors are not the evil "in cahoots with pharmacies" demons that those addicted to conspiracy theories and wearing tinfoil hats would have you believe, but they are also not perfect and can make mistakes or just be plain wrong...though some act otherwise. Keep that in mind, no matter how much you "like" your doctor. Sometimes there is a clear and proven path that tends to work for a given cancer, but sometimes, ie with the cancers that are more aggressive or rarer, the best treatment is not so obvious.

    Absolutely :thumbsup:

    I just suggest you go in with both eyes wide open and be wary of buying into treatments which make a lot of unproven claims which sound "natural" and all warm n fuzzy (etc etc). That doesn't mean they work. Best to you!

    Sorry, no. It's not like you eat something that's "sugary" and it magically bypasses you entire bodily system and goes right to the cancer cells.

    That said, it is a good idea to minimize your sugar intake for general health reasons.

    PS: that article is largely nonsense made by a totally unqualified fool. People like that are dangerous and disgust me in no small way.

    I haven't looked at the links, but no one should be so naive to think that only an oncologist can tell you what can work for cancer. People should do research and take responsibility for their own health.

    Doctors in the US have cured people from their cancer using alternative treatments and were imprisoned and lost their licence because of it. Unless a cancer cure can generate big money for big pharma it would be ignored and pushed aside and the law is on their side.

    Dr Joel Wallach had to sue the FDA three times and won, just to be able to say in public that the trace mineral selenium can cure cancer after providing years upon years of clinical evidence.

    Cancer treatments are a big money generating industry and people need to get it in their heads that when it comes to big money, people tend not to care about your life.

    as opposed to......who? Some "natural health" advocate who can claim anything they want on the internet without having to actually back it up? Believing someone like that, THAT is naive. And dangerous.

    No argument there.

    No, that is utter and glaring nonsense. Many have CLAIMED to - but they are only that: empty claims, and not one has panned out. Repeat: not a single one.

    Gee I wonder why. Could it be they were committing fraud and costing people their lives with their fraudulent claims?

    Oh surprise, the "evil big pharmacy conspiracy" silliness - something else which is utterly unproven and the stuff of movies, not reality.

    More disinformation if not outright lies. Here are the facts (which anyone can google for themselves):

    - He is a VETERINARIAN. Is that who you want to go to for advice on cancer for yourself or a loved one? Your pet parakeet, maybe.....

    - He claims most diseases are the result of mineral deficiencies and promotes the sale of "collodial minerals." He has no independently verified evidence (or even sound logic) to back this up mind you, but that won't stop people from blindly buying into it.

    - He has a long history of involvement in dubious healthcare schemes, such laetrile treatment for cancer (thoroughly debunked decades ago), as well as chelation and hydrogen peroxide therapies for coronary artery disease.

    In short, he is a quack who delights in making money off of naive fools who will believe almost anything if a "doctor" says it. Scary. And sad.


    Ask yourself this: who do you think stands to make more money: someone providing treatments that work less, or someone providing treatments that work better?

    In other words, if any of these "alternative methods" were legit, the so-called big pharmacy companies would be all over them and marketing them like crazy. Yet they aren't. Hmmmm

    Finally, here is a statement from WallachOnline | Welcome...

    "The statements made on this page have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease."

    I am not even going to both with you and your arrogant know it all attitude. People like you are perfect to be establishment pawns.

    However, i would just like to clear up something for other people who still have their brain cells in tact and might be reading this thread. Dr Joel Wallach started as a Veterinarian and Nutritionish then later on became a Pathologist and Naturopathic Physician. Dr Wallach has done tons and tons of research and if this quack who calls everyone else who does not agree with him quacks does proper research, instead of just looking for ways to discredit anyone who disagrees with his establishment message, he would know that Dr Wallach has done thousands of autopsies and analysis of both animal and humans as funded by the National Institute of Health and is not just some guy with a made up theory who came out of the bushes.

    The reason for bringing up Dr Wallach was to demonstrate how the medical establishment and pharmaceutical industry is not interested in any cure for cancer that they cannot patent and make money of on, which is why they will NEVER put in any time or money into conducting experiments and testing any naturally occurring substance that they cannot patent and make money of. So then this guy above will feel comfortable ignoring the results of thousands of people because his beloved Pharmaceutical industry has not released a study to back any of these alternative treatments up.

    To those of you who are reading, my only advise to you is to take my words with a grain of salt but an open mind and do some research. Take his words with a grain of salt and do some research. Research cancer and its root cause. Just like I started doing month ago and I guarentee you, that you will be very enlightened.
