This site has many subdirectories,
each devoted to a specific area of life. Most patients feel
the urgency of their physical situations and want to be sure that
the measures they are taking to beat cancer are effective and likely
to succeed. In the beginning, emphasis is usually put on
the medical modalities, but as the magnitude of the challenge is
better understood, many realize that additional effort may be useful. On
the physical level, the scope of action often embraces food and
nutrition, dietary supplements and herbs, geopathic stress and
pollutants in the home and work space, exercise and perhaps martial
arts practices that aid concentration, and/or specific physiotherapy
such as manual lymphatic drainage or osteopathy. Because
of the wide range of options here, I have created separate directories
for the main areas of interest.
There is probably very little consensus
as to what would constitute an appropriate cancer diet, but most
people may agree that fresh food is better than food that has been
packaged and stored a long time. Usually, experts favor organic
food over commercially grown and genetically modified food. In
this section, you will find some essays
on the energetics of food, links to Kitchen
Doctor and Dosha
Balance, and recipes.
Most patients need to know that they
are fighting cancer adequately. In some instances, this means
conventional therapy, but sometimes reliance is placed on herbs
and supplements. Understanding the various formulas and what
is antitumoral versus immune
enhancing or detoxifying is
helpful. Because my expertise does not really encompass supplements,
this section is really about herbs. Please note that there is some
overlap between this section and the ones entitled purification and regeneration.
and Work Place
In this section, I will discuss everything
from soaps and shampoos to electromagnetic pollution and mold. More
and more studies are identifying very specific carcinogens that
are commonplace: underwire bras, dry cleaning agents, mercury
preservatives in medications, propyl alcohol in cosmetics, and
estrogenic compounds in plastics, including many composite fillings
and bonding agents used in dentistry.
While we may feel powerless in the
face of global environmental crises and pollution, it is nevertheless
important to understand what the risks are and how some of the
exposure can be managed and the hazards minimized.
Please note that emotional and spiritual
issues are also addressed on this web site, but in separate
sections which their own directories.
