Understanding Cancer

Naivety came from my mother’s sentiments from how some medical experts are unable to cure problems by settling for prescription drugs instead of getting to the route of problems and giving advice on how to resolve health issues naturally. Misdiagnosis is also common!

During my upbringing she cited several cases which have brought me to my own conclusions. Additionally, my own personal experiences have brought me to doubt about some medical advice and the methods used to cure ailments.


I believe we are much more than we are living. By this statement I mean we should be aiming to prevent potential health issues by doing whatever it takes to stay healthy. Moreover, if we have a history of specific illnesses in our family and past generations then precautions are necessary and should be an area of personal research. Yes, the available science is our bible to turn to for knowledge, however, we can also learn from studying good advice and new ways to overcome sicknesses.


My immediate family is lucky as there is no hereditary cancer within my father and mother’s side apart from an uncle who in his eighties developed prostate cancer which was undetected by a general practitioner (GP) who told him his symptoms were nothing to worry about. A year later it spread, so when he went back to the same GP, he was told it was too late and he only had a few months to live. It is enough to make anybody annoyed while cautious about what professionals say, and it leads to the need to take action.

Cancer is a disease in which some of the body's cells grow uncontrollably and spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can start almost anywhere in the human body, which is made up of trillions of cells. Cancer is the second-leading cause of death in the world. But survival rates are improving for many types of cancer, thanks to improvements in cancer screening, treatment and prevention.


Cancer is one of the biggest health care issues all over the world, and there is a great need to adopt better and effective strategies for its cure and treatment with more emphases on early detection and prevention. The available studies indicate that fasting (starvation) greatly reduces the side effects of chemotherapy and starvation-based differential chemotherapy is a safe, feasible and an effective option in cancer treatment.


When I mention my own studies on preventative measures and fasting to help cancer victims it seems my naivety has got the better of me, however, what seems like naivety is not always the case, as personal experience creates wisdom. In such a case, what appears to be naivety is in the eyes of the inexperienced.


Take care!
