The solution lies mainly with prevention, which means following a nutritional balancing program completely.
Real prevention means living, eating and taking certain steps to keep cancer of all kinds far away from you. These are all contained in a complete nutritional balancing program. Any other nutritional or other preventive program, in my experience, is not nearly as good.
The program includes a diet for one’s oxidation type, about 8 or 9 targeted supplements based on a hair mineral analysis, the proper amount and type of drinking water, and about 5 detoxification and healing procedures. Nutritional Balancing Science is a powerful preventive method that can enable most women to avoid ever having to think about breast cancer.
Early Detection - Screening for Breast Cancer
Monthly Breast Self-Exams
Basically, once a month or so, lie in bed and begin by pressing firmly on the outer part of each breast. Slowly move in circles inward toward the nipple. You must press firmly and sense any changes in the texture or even the temperature of the tissue. Also, when you are dressing, look in the mirror with both breasts uncovered to see if the shape or way the breasts sit has changed in any way. This is all there is to it.
The only drawbacks are 1) some women forget to do it, and 2) it is a little harder to do well if you have larger breasts, very lumpy breasts or perhaps if they are very small. However, it can be done by anyone at any age. First thing in the morning on the first of every month is a very good schedule.
Of course, women can also have breast exams at a clinic or doctor’s office, although they are rarely scheduled more than once a year, which is not enough.
While it will detect some types of abnormalities, it is not considered very good. It also requires an expert to properly read the sonogram, as it is called. However, it is non-invasive, non-toxic and does not damage a woman’s breasts, as do mammograms.
2. Mammograms expose one to too much radiation if done on a regular basis.
3. Mammograms have many false positive results. This causes stress on many women, leads to more invasive surgeries that may not be needed, and is costly.
4. Damage to the breasts. Mammograms require that the breasts be pressed hard against the x-ray unit. This actually damages the breasts. In some women, their breasts are literally tender for days after a mammogram.
This technique has been around for many years. It is slowly gaining in popularity. I am not sure why it is not used more. It is as good as mammography in many ways, without the x-rays and without damaging the breasts. Some authorities maintain that thermography is actually much better than mammography and can detect changes in the breast years before cancer even develops.
Biopsies usually follow after detection of a breast lump. The problem with breast biopsies is that they can cause cancer cells to be moved into the bloodstream, and this can spread the cancer.
Another problem with breast biopsies is they can produce false negative and false positive results. A false negative means that the pathologist or doctor who views the tissue sample misses the cancer cells for some reason. He or she may just have looked at the wrong piece of tissue, and this is common. A false positive means that the doctors reports that you have cancer, when you do not. This also occurs, at times, and can lead to unnecessary surgery, drug treatments and more.
Other Methods of Breast Screening
Today, doctors offer various tests for genetic predisposition to some types of breast cancer, and more tests are likely in the future.
What to Do If You Find a Breast Lump
Doctors also say if you can move the lump around it is better than if it seems fixed to the breast and cannot be moved around by your finger. However, this is not always true. If you detect a lump, I suggest going to a competent doctor for further testing. This might include a breast exam, a mammogram and/or a breast biopsy.
Conventional Breast Cancer Therapy
The success rate with conventional therapies varies with the type and stage of cancer. If you are researching it, you must always ask about the chances of success, side effects of treatment, cost, and other things, perhaps, such as if you will lose your hair or have other nasty effects of treatment. Beware that doctors use a five-year survival rate to rate their success. This means that if they tell you that your chances of recovery are 80%, for example, it only means that after five years, 80% of the people are still alive. If a patient dies one day after 5 years, the person is counted as “cured”, even though the person died.
I think this system of rating the outcome of cancer therapy is false and totally outrageous. I would use a 20-year survival rate. If this were done, the real and dismal failure of conventional cancer therapies would become much more obvious, and people would turn to natural approaches much sooner.
I would definitely warn against the use of conventional cancer therapies. They are quite toxic, costly, have side effects, and are not needed. They do not nourish and rebuild the body. Instead, they make the body more toxic and more ill, even if they appear to stop the cancer temporarily or permanently.
Natural approaches. In my experience of more than 30 years, I can only recommend two natural methods. These are 1) the Kelley metabolic cancer therapy, and only when supervised by Pamela McDougle, and 2) a remedy called Protocel or Cantron, plus a complete nutritional balancing program with it. Note that the maker of Protocel does not recommend a supplement program, but a nutritional balancing program seems only to enhance the effect of the remedy.
Other natural cancer therapies. I would warn readers against using other cancer therapies. These include intravenous vitamin C, IPT, cesium, medicinal mushrooms, various herbs, chelation, natural hormones and hormone blockers, and others. They may work for a while, but I do not think they are nearly as effective as the two methods mentioned in the paragraph above.
Also, be very careful whom you work with. Most doctors, naturopaths, chiropractors, and nutritionists are not sufficiently experienced with cancer and this can be fatal. Many change the therapies based on insufficient research and this, too, can be fatal.
