First I want to say sorry that your mother has been diagnosed with something such as this. I could not possibly understand what you are going through in your current situation. I have been studying alternative medicines against prescription drugs and therapies. The idea is that chemical medication breakdown the immune system while alternatives are supposed to be natural and help the body overcome illness. I think the natural therapies mentioned in the book could help in your mother's case. I also think the condition has be attacked from all sides. Wellness, as I have studied it, is defined as a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. A person needs to have social wellness, emotional wellness, spiritual wellness, environmental wellness, occupational wellness, intellectual wellness, and physical wellness. All of these things need to be in tune with one another in order to achieve overall wellness. I hope things get better soon.

The benefits of an alternative treatment may be affected by the stage of diagnosis of the cancer and general health of the patient. Unfortunately not everyone has time to try alternatives. Having a good treatment team who consider the patient's situation in a holistic manner may provide the most appropriate direction for individuals.

I lost my mother a few years ago to cancer. Seeing what the treatments did to her was heartbreaking. Since I have been looking into alternative treatments for various aliments, including cancer. I can't help but shake the idea that if I would have done more research when she was first diagnosed, that something could have been done to help her more. At the very least I hope to offer others a layman's advice when they are in pain or sick. Having options to explore is a good idea.

Cancer is really horrible that even scientific curable methods do not give 100% chances that the patient will be okay but as well though traditional medicines do work to cure cancer.

I too have had first hand experience with cancer. My husband of 32 years had stage 4 colorectal cancer, which took his life after 4 year battle. He did not do chemo due to the low 8% survival rate that was given. He chose the natural approach which put him in remission for a year. When the cancer returned he started Natural but the cancer's dictations were to intense for him so he gave in to pharmaceutical medicine for pain management. I believe that choice was what took his life, seeing the changes taking place from the use of Pharmaceuticals, should he stuck with the road less traveled Natural alternatives I believe he would still be here today.

I do not really think that there is any alternative for cancer. There medical mafia included in this. In my opinion the international medical association has purposely not invented any affordable treatment for cancer. The only reason for not inventng an alternative medicine is that to earn money from patients.

I don't really know anyone that has opted for non-conventional ways to treat cancer but I think the methods in this book are worth a try.

As seen on some research, alternatives do take a longer time and some people don't have that. So I agree with you.

I am very sorry about your mother's situation. I wish her well. Concerning alternative medicines, I am positive that they deliver a lot more than expected at times. All you need is to get hold of the tried and tested medicines and apply them. You know, my grandmother just celebrated her 130th birthday,(a whole century on top of my current age) and as long as I can remember there are only two times when she used conventional treatments. She has been doing what we call traditional methods (here in Africa) to cure all sorts of ailments and she is still strong. She has never suffered cancer though. So yes, alternative medicines do work.

Based on the evidence provided in the book, the natural plant extract seem to work best in tandem with chemotherapy and radiation therapy. I don't have personal experience with either of the solutions presented in the book, unfortunately. The best thing I can recommend is to eat healthy and exercise. My mom often tells me to eat a lot of ginger. I eat it a lot when I get sick and it seems to help me. I hope your mother gets better soon!!!

I have always trusted natural remedies for any disease I encounter. So I do believe that somewhere somehow, there is a cure for cancer. With scientists coming up with new remedies every now and then, there will finally be a cure.

I think that if I had cancer I would use traditional cancer treatments first such as radiation and chemotherapy. Alternative medicines would be tried only if the traditional treatments were not effective.

I agree with this. Exercise could really help the body and cells healthy. Eating healthy is also an important thing - avoid or lessen foods that are carcinogenic. Also, my mom boils ginger for me to drink! And I can also say it's effective sometimes! Glad to know someone is also using ginger as medicine sometimes. :tiphat:

chemotherapy causes people to become infertile so I cannot recommend that anyone uses this treatment. I think in America there are a lot of alternative ways to treat cancer.
