It has been estimated
that mainstream medicine, with it's tremendous technology, resources and
profits, has at best a 3% overall cure rate (and they define a cure as merely 5
year survival). So far I have only what I have learned and my heart to
guide me, and make almost no money, but I am batting about 1000. And no
amount of money could buy the joy and satisfaction that brings.
Yes, bottom line is you have to live with yourself. But your statistics
are very skewed. Below is a table for survival rates from 1973 to
1998. You will note that even the lowest survivor rate at 5 years is
pancreatic cancer, and it is higher than the number you quote. The
majority of survival rates at 5 years listed below exceed 50% - many over
80%. Survival is much, much, better than what many on this forum attribute
to allopathic medicine, and today the survival years have improved over and
above the 1973 to 1998 numbers.
Any choice a person makes is their own, and one has to respect their choice
regardless of the outcome.
