The word chemo means chemical, it is a chemical therapy or a man-made substance therapy. Chemotherapy is used today in many of the treatments for cancer because it targets rapidly dividing cells within the body. Most forms of cancer cells are rapidly dividing cells but unfortunately there are many natural body cells that are also rapidly dividing as well and that’s why chemotherapy has side effects. |
Chemotherapy was discovered near the end of the last world war after a ship that was carrying a nerve gas, which was mustard gas was bombed and many of the sailors died from exposure to the gas. It was found when autopsies were preformed that the rapidly dividing cells of the sailors who died had been affected. The connection between the chemical and cancer was made knowing that most cancer cells are also rapidly dividing. In 1946 the first chemotherapy agent was introduced and it was called nitrogen mustard.
Now days there are many other chemotherapy drugs in use, some used in combination as oncologists try to get better results. They are all designed to target any foreign growths with the hope of killing the bad cells and leaving the body’s natural cells unharmed. Unfortunately these drugs cannot and do not distinguish between good cells and bad cells within the body and that’s why people lose their hair and suffer from nausea and vomiting along with other serious side effects. These chemicals also depress the body’s immune system which is our self repair system.
It is not difficult to get rid of cancer; the problem is to stop it coming back or spreading because that’s when it becomes life threatening. Cancer in all cases is a disease of a weak immune system so how can it be cured by a therapy that further weakens the immune system? People today are dying not from the cancer but from the treatments, chemo destroys cells indiscriminately both good ones and bad ones. It’s a poison and an expensive one.
There are many problems with introducing a foreign substance within the body and there are some serious side effects that most people are not being made aware of. For instance if someone who has undergone this treatment with chemotherapy survives for long enough, they could or will develop independent cancers that are a direct result from those earlier treatments. It is a fact that more cancer is a side effect of chemotherapy.
For most patients, chemotherapy represents a serious decrease in their quality of life due to the toxicity of most of the drugs used. Also, even for the common cancers where chemotherapy does have an effect the actual survival benefits are measured in weeks or months, not years. Also some of the side effects they experience can be life threatening.
There will never be a miracle cure for cancer but there has always been a way to overcome the disease. As mentioned earlier it is a disease of the immune system in all cases so common sense should tell someone that the key to surviving cancer is to focus on strengthening this system.
Cancer has many natural cures but none of them involve putting a poison in your body. Treating cancer now days is a multi billion dollar industry and it’s booming. Look whose making money out of it. Researchers have been searching for a drug that will cure cancer for nearly 40 years but they will never find one. Only nature has a cure and that means you have to turn to nature to solve the problem.
Understanding cancer and getting to the root cause of the problem makes much more sense than using a poison. A genuine cure for cancer has to come from within the body, not from someone applying a chemical treatment from outside the body.
