Please think of cancer as a house on fire that is being fed by gas pipes attached to the gas reserves of the city. Mainstream medicine comes to the fire and just sees the fire, pouring thousands of gallons of water on it to no avail. At Utopia Wellness, we arrive at the same fire and look first to identify what is causing the fire. We see the gas lines feeding the fire and shut them off, then we proceed to put out the fire.
Since 1950, cancer rates for the general population (excluding lung and stomach cancer – see note) have risen at a rate of about 1.2 percent per year, with extraordinary increases in certain cancers, including cancers of male and female sexual organs, notably the breast (up 52%), prostate (up 134%), and testis (up 125%). Additionally, kidney (up 116%), liver (up 88%), brain (up 74%), and thyroid (up 102%), as well as non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas (up 172%) and multiple myelomas (up 183%) (Miller et al. 1993).
Clearly, mainstream medicine has failed in the area of cancer prevention. We must not confuse diagnostic procedures such as colonoscopy, mammograms, PSA tests, and the like with prevention. These procedures are designed to identify or confirm the presence of a disease process already developed. Prevention, on the other hand, is a therapeutic process that reduces and/or eliminates the contributing factors to the disease process in order to maintain health and wellness.
Traditional mainstream medicine is aimed at intervention after a problem develops. The model is akin to: use it, abuse it, break it and then go to the doctor to prescribe a pill or procedure that will fix it. There is no emphasis placed on understanding why it occurred and instructing the patient on how to prevent a recurrence.
In my opinion, mainstream medicine does not understand how cancer develops, how to treat it, and how to reduce the incidence of cancer. For nearly a century, Chemotherapy has been their treatment of choice. Yet, as stated in the first paragraph, the incidence of cancer continues to grow at alarming rates. Several years ago, I came across a published article that demonstrates that chemotherapy does little to improve survival rates www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15630849. Additionally, an insight into accepted pharmaceutical statistics are best explained in: “Not credible: a subversion of science by the pharmaceutical industry”. I encourage all of you to read these!
Utopia Wellness’s approach to cancer is developing a treatment plan specifically tailored for each patient. We use natural compounds designed to fortify the patient’s immune system, oxygenate the body, alkalize the body through dietary changes and detoxification and most importantly identify what is fueling cancer. At Utopia Wellness we understand that cancer is not the problem but the symptom.
In my 25 years of experience and education in the field of alternative cancer treatments, I have determined that there are numerous contributors to cancer development including toxins, lifestyle choices, and diet. However, I believe there are two primary causes for any cancer:
- Dental issues such as root canal-filled teeth, incorrectly extracted teeth resulting in cavitations or part of the root system left behind abscesses, and a history of poor dentition.
- Emotional issues: I believe it is fair to say that everyone diagnosed with cancer is somewhat traumatized emotionally, i.e. anger, fear, why me and others. Ryke Geerd Hamer, M.D. as well as Louise Hay studied the association between one’s emotions and their effect on our health and well-being. The notion that your emotions may result in cancer or other chronic illness is frequently overlooked, ignored, and/or refuted by mainstream medicine.
If the practitioner does not identify the root cause of cancer, then no one should be surprised that the patient has a recurrence or never goes into remission, forget about thinking of the cure. Information that the patient diagnosed with pancreatic or other cancer should be aware:
- Jaundice – results from an inability to excrete the bile from the liver.
Your primary care doctor will refer you to a gastrointestinal (G.I.) doctor who most likely will do an endoscopic examination to evaluate the ampulla of VaterThis is a one-way valve that allows bile and pancreatic enzymes to be released after the food contents have been released by the stomach
If you have jaundice, most likely, your ampulla of Vater is compromised
The mainstream treatment of choice is to insert a stent. It is important that you understand the difference between a metallic versus a plastic stent. The plastic stent is replaceable. The metallic stent is permanent and not replaceable
It is just a matter of time before the stent becomes compromised with a plastic stent, it is replaced.
With a metallic stent, replacement is not an option, because the liver tissue will adhere to the imperfections of the metal.
When I talk to the G.I. doctors they have told me that they place metallic stents when they feel the patient is terminal.
- Staging – this is an artificial or manmade scaleOnce a person has a biopsy of any kind, I consider that person stage iv
- BiopsyWhen one has a biopsy, the cancer is disseminated or spread
- Lymphatic SystemOnce your lymphatic system is involved, your cancer has access to your entire body, thus I consider that stage iv.
Many of you have heard of the arterial system in the venous system. Both of these systems have access to your entire body. The arterial system brings oxygenated blood and nutrients to all your cells. Your cells generate waste which is eliminated through the venous system. However, the venous system is not 100% perfect, thus the waste that is left behind, 1- 3%, is transported via the lymphatic system, which parallels the venous system and accesses your entire body.
Whereas many think that 1-3% is a relatively insignificant amount of fluid that is carried by the lymphatic system, when your lymphatic system is compromised through surgical or radiation intervention, the patient may develop lymphedema. Illustrations of lymphedema can be found here.
Thus, if your lymphatic system is compromised with cancer, i.e. a cancerous lymph node, your entire body is at risk for lymphatic spread of cancer.
As for lymphatic lymph node biopsies, the assumption made by the layperson is that there is someone who sections each lymph node as one would slice a loaf of bread. The reality is that if there is an abnormality in color or texture, that area is most likely biopsied. However, if there are no abnormalities then a random sample of that lymph node is taken and it is assumed that is representative of what is to be found within the rest of the lymph node.
Notes: These statistics were not included due to the fact that most of the increase in lung cancer is due to smoking and most of the decrease in stomach cancer is due to improved diet, made possible by refrigeration.
