Hi all, in this page, I’ve gathered bits and pieces from the web about cancer research, cures and treatments. I confess that it is more holistic orientated than allopathic. Although I appreciate the efforts conventional medicine and science put into finding fast and efficient ways to treat diseases, I don’t agree with their philosophy where a disease is identified by its symptoms and treated with pharmaceutical drugs, mutilation or ablation with disregard of the causes of this illness or any possible natural alternative. Also, because doctors are limited by their field of expertise, they only know what’s been taught to them at med school and even if they take the initiative to broaden their knowledge, they are bound to use the official approach toward healthcare that has been established by institutions otherwise they would just lose their licence. It is obvious to me that conventional doctors have their hands tied. Their license looks more like an injunction to do as they’re told than the right to heal people! And if one wants a natural or alternative approach towards treating or curing ones sickness, one would most of the time have to become literally outlaw to get it.
I have come to realise and believe that between the education system, medical boards of doctors, the World Health Organisation, heads of pharmaceutical companies, petro-chemical industries and private banks, there was a very small handful of people connected to one another by their wallets. It is a wonder how the conflicts of interests haven’t been picked up on by the mainstream media yet… Unless those very media are also financed by the above and this then explain a lot! But what do I know, hey? I could speculate for as long as I wish, no proof, no crime.
Which is why I am creating this special cancer page, hoping that these videos, articles and documents below would get you CURE-YOU-S enough to want to go and look further into the matter. What I present below is smoke. I know that I am no figure of authority and have no expertise in any field whatsoever since I don’t have any certificates to back up what I bring up although I don’t believe that the diploma makes the man, but the experience does! So I just put my faith in your curiosity and your will to find out where the fire is and hope that the information you find that corroborates mine will spread like a disease!
♣rBGH Hormone & CANCER
This 01:18 “Breast Cancer Action” VIDEO below is from the “Think before you pink” blog on “Current TV” website. It basically claims that the pharmaceutical industry that provides with cancer treatment also provide with carcinogenic substances in food market. So before we go buy the pink ribbon, we ought to find out who is really behind it!
Excerpts from the “Think Before You Pink”:
Regarding the “Connection Between rBGH and Breast Cancer”: “Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH), also known as Recombinant Bovine Somatotropin (rBST), is injected into cows so they will produce more milk. Research suggests that a number of health concerns, including breast cancer, are associated with the consumption of dairy products from cows treated with rBGH.”
Regarding Eli Lilly pharmaceutical: “Eli Lilly is a pharmaceutical company that claims to “care for our communities.” But the company is responsible for the cancer and infertility causing DES (diethylstilbestrol), for the illegal marketing of the schizophrenia drug Zyprexa and for the illegal marketing of its osteoporosis drug Evista as a breast cancer “preventive.” And now it’s Eli Lilly & rBGH.”
Connection betweenE.Lilly, the hormone and Monsanto: “rBGH belonged to Monsato before it sold it to Eli Lilly. Monsanto happens to be the company that generates all sorts of GMO’s and food additives and presses authorities to basically forbid us, people, to buy or grow natural food!!!”
See my “Hell is just around the corner” post in this blog for more links and details about Monsanto.
♣CANCER CURES HAVE NO SPACE IN A CAPITALIST WORLD…
The following videos relate to potential cure for cancer. They are natural cures therefore they cannot be patented. That means they cannot be profited from by the pharmaceutical industry who strive on maintaining a drug market monopoly. Strangely, natural cures, let alone cure itself, are very rare. You might have noticed. Yet we can’t help but wonder why in this day and age of technology, scientific research and great advances, there are practically no cure for any chronic disease or serious illness?? Drug administration offices don’t allow the sale of natural or plant based medicines for safety reasons. That’s the official version. The reality is much sinister than that: they are not profitable for drug companies as anyone can grow plants in their garden! Here are some witness accounts and reports. Enjoy while they are still there available for viewing or reading. It will not surprise me that you can no longer watch some of them for they will have been removed due to some violations of fair use or whatever excuse they can come up with…
DiChloroacetic Acid (or DCA. Wikimedia info here) is an odourless, colourless, inexpensive, relatively non-toxic, small molecule. And researchers at the University of Alberta believe it may soon be used as an effective treatment for many forms of cancer. However, because the compound is not patented, you may never see it on the market as Drug companies can not profit from it as it is naturally and profusely available.
HOW TO CURE CANCER & HIV? 1/13 (Video) This is a rare video (in 13 parts), taken in 1996 at Ventura College, of Dr Robert (Bob) Beck. A genius in the field of magnetism and electricity, he focused the last decade of his life on using micro currents to render all known virus, bacterial and parasites (including HIV!) powerless. This video seriously challenges current drug/chemical-fueled approach western science takes towards the treatment of disease.
RUN FROM THE [cannabis] CURE (Video) Learn about Rick Simpson, the man who rediscovered the cure for cancer and shared it with as many people as he could. Recently while traveling from Canada Rick had his house raided again for the third time, and while Rick always admitted with pride that he had grown medicinal hemp and cured people with it. The police fabricated this “raid” and found no marijuana and actually stole other things from the property, and all without producing a warrant. The police force that broke into Rick’s home and destroyed the inside stole the very security cameras that proves what they were doing. Full video (Run from the cure) on Chrychek’s youtube channel or here.
CANNABIS TO CURE CANCER? (Video) On this video filmed in 2006, Dr. Robert Melamede, Professor of Biology at the University of Colorado, explains how the body’s Endo-Cannabinoid system (and plant-based Cannabinoids as supplement) kills cancer cells and inhibits tumor growth. Referring to 1974 U.S.government-sponsored study when THC was found to slow growth of cancer cells.
MEDICAL CANNABIS: its impact on human health (Video) In this myth shattering, information packed documentary, learn from physicians and leading researchers about medicinal cannabis and its demonstrated effects on human health. This game-changing movie presents the most comprehensive synopsis to date of the real science surrounding the world’s most controversial plant.

Coupled with the bureaucratic demands of the tax act, the practice of physicians prescribing cannabis for therapeutic purposes in such an environment became subject to great scrutiny and therefore unwise.

6th February 2010
In previous links I posted on my profile (see above links), I was commenting how pharmaceutical drugs were not designed to heal or cure but to relieve symptoms of an illness or dis-ease, and to relieve pain. Now, they are very effective indeed. Yet the problem with them in the long-term is that they damage the body by affecting the important parts such as liver, kidneys, bladder, basically anything that’s involved in the breaking down and processing the manmade chemicals.
On the other hand/end, I commented that natural remedies, when prepared adequately, were taking longer to work but most were beneficial in the long-term as no foreign substances where going through the body to damage it. By foreign substance I mean compounds that are naturally meant to be assimilated by the body, not synthetics fabricated by man. See, the good thing I see about alternative medicine is that healers look for the cause of your symptoms and offer a cure that would rid the cause and a remedy that would relieve the symptoms altogether.
I have found out that at some point the ultimate purpose of giant drug companies was to manufacture drugs for profit (see “Hell is just around the corner” Blog Entry). This means that as long as there are sick people out there, there will be profit for the big corporate pharma. This means that it is in the interest of the big corporate pharmaceutical to ensure that there are sick people out there. This means that if there is a cure for a disease, they shall not sell it nor make the world aware of it. Instead, they will keep on selling relieving drugs, making people feel better and getting them addicted to it to keep the monetary system running.
If you read carefully the leaflets of the drugs you buy from the pharmacist, you will notice that they all warn you about the possible side effects and of the fact that a long term taking will get your body accustomed and immune to the drug. This simply means that if taken for a long period of time, the drug will no longer be effective and your body will have become addicted to it somewhat.
As for the cause of the symptoms, best thing the body of medicine can come up with, is cutting you open and removing the bit that’s causing all the trouble without considering any alternative! This should be treated as a last resort option; instead, it is a systematic answer to most problems that could well be approach alternatively. The reason for these procedures is more political than economical or even medical, and is way too long and twisted for me to bring it into this ranting of mine here.
But enough about the big pharma and their financial contracts with the medical authorities. Let’s talk about me for a minute. Ego is craving for attention and sympathy here.
I feel I need to apology to all the drug users out there that I used to call names for not being able to get off the drugs let alone starting on them in the first place. I have for the first time in my life experienced feel good with pharma drugs and I understand now what they are going through. Sorryyyyy!
After being in moderate but bearable pain for a couple of months, there came a day where I was in such a state, even lifting my arm was torturous. I was then admitted to the ER for examination. I refused to take pain killers in the ambulance, though morphine was offered to me, which is natural, isn’t it? Well maybe not the version I was being offered! I was just too paranoid, thinking that this one dose was going to get me hooked, silly me. I soon regretted being so proud and stupid as I realised I just missed a nice opportunity to get a taste of Mother Nature’s relief, if hers it was!!
I still refused to take pain killers while waiting to be seen by a doctor because this time, it was a pink pill and definitely not natural looking to my paranoid standards. Yet, I managed to cut a deal with the ambulance guy who promised me never to go to eat at McDonald’s again if I was to take that pink pill (fortunately, my tongue was functioning at full potential, and though in pain, I managed to try to brainwash the ambulance staff, who were really deviating my pain by getting me to talk…big mistake!!) That I did (taking the pill, finally). Whether he kept his promise, I’ll never know for sure.
When it was time for me to see the doctor, I felt better. In fact, my muscles were so relaxed, I didn’t feel much pain anymore.
Now, what kind of intelligence is this to make me take pain killers and then ask me “does it hurt when I do this?”?? I felt so stupid for feeling better; I almost thought the doctor was going to diagnose me as a hypochondriac. All I was saying was “no”, “well it’s not hurting now! “Luckily” the pain remained in the back of me so the doctor not being totally retarded suggested I had a problem, my private chiropractor I was seeing for 3 weeks now, also suggested I had: disk infringement.
Since my crisis happened when I got to work, my boss called the ambulance against all my protestations; went to the ER along with me, told the doctor about all my bad healthy habits and my visit to a chiropractor, which doctor didn’t seem to be very happy about and told me I should stop seeing him for he could make my spine worse by manipulating it.
Now, I found this very insulting for my chiro for 1: he is a professional specialised in muscles and spine problems; and 2: he would know better not to manipulate my spine should it cause more damage to it for I was yet to get a scan of it (MRI). 3: he came up with the same diagnosis before I so the doctor. Unless of course he’s a crook and only after my money. There is always a chance of that happening after all.
Anyway, after prescribing me with strong (I insist on the strength) anti inflammatory and pain killers, that boss of mine made sure I actually went to the hospital pharmacy to get them as I instead offered to make our way back to work. It seemed I was not going to get away with this.
As we came back to work, I must admit I felt much better and my movements were a lot more comfortable for before, pulling a door open was an excruciating mission.
When I got home, managed to cook something to eat and went to bed, sleeping like a baby. I did not feel this comfortable for months; I almost forgot how it actually felt like… That’s when I cursed myself for having taken these meds and feeling good.
Before, I was in pain, just bearing with it and waiting for it to go away. Only it wouldn’t. Now, I have taken those meds and while I am under the influence, I feel better and normal again. Here’s the thing: if I don’t take those pills regularly, there WILL be a time when they will wear off. And that’s when the pain comes back. For some reasons I feel the pain is stronger but I suppose it is only because I was ok just before the med wore off.
Now, the two reasons I don’t want to take those pain killers are those: 1. It will make me feel better, but then, when they wear off I will be face with two choices, keep hurting or take some more, and when you’ve experience feel good and it’s right there staring at you, there is no way in hell you will just go and say: sorry, I think I’ll suffer for a while instead, but thank you!”. 2, when people are under pain killers, they are putting themselves at risk of worsening their problem for they are bound to do the things they wouldn’t do if they were in pain, even unintentionally.
At the end of the day, isn’t it the point of being in pain to stop us from doing the things that are making our problem worse? As far as I understood how the body works, when there is a problem, the brain sends signals for the body to produce those chemicals that will make the nerve’s ends more sensitive and make us scream like hell every time we do the wrong move so we don’t make ourself worse.
Doesn’t this mean that the pain killers, though they make you more comfortable with bearing the pain, they expose you and make you prone to worsen your problem? Having said that, I am sure it is down to common sense to ensure one doesn’t go for a jog when ones leg is broken just because one is high and can do it!
So yeah, I have succumbed to the meds and crossed over to the other side. I always say, pharmaceutical drugs should be used as a last resort. Is it my last resort now? I am not proud. I had my close friend yelling at me telling me to go and see a doc, and I wouldn’t go. It took a day where I was totally broken to go and see one. Yet it is a very financially challenging one that doesn’t offer me pain relief but problem fixing. Yet again, since the ER episode, the meds became inevitable. So I am now getting both artificial pain relief, and natural problem fixing. As for natural pain relief, apart from relaxing massages, MSN (though I’m not sure about its efficiency) and a special diet (once again, that’s long run issue not short), there isn’t much I managed to find that act faster and healthily.
So this is an appeal to all of you nature lovers, if you know of quick and effective natural pain reliefs, by all means, share with the world so dr Evil can finally be overthrown and Mother Nature put back where she belongs!
Epilogue: Well, shit happens. Circumstances change. I was already planning my next trip to S.America for March… Looks like it ain’t gonna happen anytime soon. And now that I have to pay for a private doctor, I am stuck; back into the Matrix I was so glad of getting myself out of before. In a word, I have to enslave myself to full-time work again. But this isn’t what stopping me from ranting on facebook, my being crippled was. Now that I am high and all drugged up, as you can see from this never-ending story, that there is no more stopping me. Godamn you Dr Evil!!!
Final thoughts: What an irony though, I can’t go backpacking for now because of a trauma caused by some heavy backpacking in the recent past. At least I have learnt to travel light(er) in the future *sigh*.
And remember all, we tend to take out health for granted, so bend your knees, not your back!
There, off my chest. Feeling better already :)
28th March 2010
Oh yeah, turns out, it’s second grade breast cancer with metastases spread out pretty much everywhere in the lung, liver, bones… That kind of explains a lot, doesn’t it?
I’m still in London. I had the pleasure of having a professor, 2 consultants, a doctor, a social service assistant and 2 students to break it to me! I can tell you I felt very special that evening. My dearest friend Al was there with me. She’s the one who was crying. I was more pragmatic about it. It did occur to me that I might have something going on since I felt stuff growing and multiplying in my breast. Since March the previous year. But I was willfully ignoring it, thinking it would disappear or that it might just not be cancer at all. Turns out, that pain in my back was a consequence of the cancer that spread down to the bones in my vertebrae. Who would have thought? Hadn’t it been for that back pain, I’d never have shown up to the hospital and get myself checked up. Yes, I took the opportunity to talk about my lumps while I was there getting my back check…
The professor said I’d have a few weeks left to live if I didn’t start the treatment right away. By treatment he meant 4: Hormone therapy, chemotherapy, bone strengthening and something for my liver. Each with its own side effects. Hmmmm, yummy!! I then thought it’d be a good idea to fly out to France and say “hi” to mama…
To be continued…
