I have been lurking, reading and deleting. I am a Herbalist of over 10 years and 2 years ago I was diagnosed with testicular cancer. I refused surgery/chemo/radiation and have been taking 714X, Hoxsey formula, Vitamin C and following a healthy Diet (And exploring new possibilities).
The largest the cancer was recorded by ultrasound was 3.4cm my last ultrasound (In February) the cancer was 1.9 cm, that is a 1.5 cm difference. The Urolgist told me I'd be dead within a year if I don't go for surgery. I am ALIVE and healthier than I have ever been (execpt I have cancer:-) Helen the white willow (Salix alba) is the tree you are thinking of. Salix, is classical Latin for willow. The primary healing agent in willow is salicin, an intermediate form of salicylic acid.
(Salicin was offically listed in the United States Pharmacopoeia from 1882 to 1926. ) Today Americans consume over 200 million asprin tablets daily. Commercial asprin, acetyl-saliclic acid, is chemically synthesized in a process involving sodium hydroxide and phenol. Side effects of commercial aspirin range from minor stomach bleeding (each time a tablet is taken) to asthma, rashes, dizzines, and death. (About 2000 people die a year from aspirin in Britan alone).
But we are living in an age where drug companies fund almost half of all medical research. Any info that runs contrary to the drugs manufactured is often squlched and is never published. Did you read the study in British Journal of Cancer (Jan. 7, 2002) exlporing the risks of tricyclic antidepressants. Those shown to more than double breast-cancer risk include:amoxapine (brand name Asendin), clomipramine (Anafranil), desipramine(Norpramin) and trimipramine (Surmontil and Rhotrimine). For those in the study who took tricyclic medications, Breast Cancer did not show up until 11 to 15 years afterword. I think it is safe today to say drugs tend to cause cancer. Prevention of Breast Cancer may also be the cure. Whole foods diet, positive mental attitude, healthy exercising , nurturing relationships, cleansing, and supplements may just be the answer to this riddle. In pill form, CoQ10, a good multi vitamin and mineral and some healthy oils. Green tea, clean water, coffee (I wish), and juices offer protection.
"The Uncommon Touch" by Tom Harpur is a great book. I just finished it.
Here is a quote:
"The most carefully documented results of bioenergy healing that I have seen personally were presented at the Doctor-Healer Conference in London in 1992 by a former colleague of Wirkus from Warsaw, Poland.
Stefania Szantyr-Powolny, M.D., who in addition to being a doctor has been practicing bioenergy healing foe twelve years, said that bioenergy therapy began to be accepted in Poland around 1978 and was given official approval as a supplement to conventional medicine in 1982. Since then she has been dividing her time between the Medical Scientific Institute in Warsaw and the bioenergy section of a Polish institute known as the Psychotronic Society, which was formed in the early 1980s to organize training and examine the abilities of bioenergy healers.
Part of Dr. Szantyr-Powolny’s practice has included the clinic of the Society for Deaf Children in Warsaw. A clinic in which Mietek Wirkus also spent much of his time before emigrating to the United States. Describing the team approach used at the clinic, she said that it was the best example of co-operation between medical staff and healers she had ever encountered.
Specialists examined and treated the children, using all the latest technology, and then referred them for bioenergy treatments. After several sessions of therapy, the children were tested with audiometers and other relevant devices. In this way, the specialists were able to make objective assessments of the results.
The doctor then described the case histories of children of various ages and with a wide range of diagnoses. The slides and audiograms of the before and after tests revealed some major, well-nigh miraculous improvements. There was a case of a six-year-old girl who was born deaf. Five months after the doctor began her bioenergy treatments, the child had gained near-normal levels of healing. Another case involved a young man whose hearing had been almost totally destroyed by excessive amounts of streptomycin administered when he was only two years old. She said, ‘On his fourth visit for bioenergy therapy I was truly moved when he came in and told me, ‘Doctor, I can hear again! I can hear water running in the bathroom; I can hear my mother making dinner; I can hear dogs barking.’
Could anything be more atisfying and rewarding?"
Bioenergy healing, and the above healthy tools will replace the present disease care system ~ it's a matter of time.
If you have read all of this so far maybe you can help me conduct a healing study. If you pray or do Bioenergy healing like Reiki , Chi Gong or Therapeutic Touch and are willing to help heal cancer.
The study starts May 1st 2003 all willing particpants email me. You will receive a confirmation with instructions (at any time you can pull out of the study) and you must be willing to document your time invested in this Bioenergy healing study.After the 3 months I'll (try;) and publish the results.
