Cancer and the Leaky Pipe

| October 12, 2013 | 0 Comments

The biggest mis­take you can make is to assume that your clin­i­cian or oncol­o­gist will under­stand every­thing that it will take to keep you alive. They may do their best, but you can­not make that assump­tion. Con­ven­tional doc­tors are there to treat your can­cer; they do so with surgery, chemother­apy and radi­a­tion. Yet, these tools do noth­ing to change the envi­ron­ment in which our can­cer was per­mit­ted to grow. I like to com­pare it to a leaky pipe. A leaky pipe leaves an ugly stain on your ceil­ing. Do you paint the stain and ignore the pipe? Of course not, so why treat a can­cer with­out address­ing the root cause of it? What made the pipe leak? Nutri­tional defi­cien­cies, envi­ron­men­tal tox­ins, inflam­ma­tion, viruses, and mind-body issues such as chronic stress all con­tribute to breast can­cer. You need to be your own lead researcher and advo­cate. Work with an inte­gra­tive physi­cian or a Natur­o­pathic doc­tor who spe­cial­izes in can­cer, or find a coach to guide you. Find and cor­rect the source of your leak. Do every­thing you need to do to enhance your sur­vival and your qual­ity of life.
