Does Curing Cancer Kill Patients?
In researching my mom’s cancer, I’m constantly surprised by the number of alternative treatment methodologies. I’m not talking about a nutraceutical approach. Researchers are now openly asking if our quest for a cure actually makes the cancer stronger and more resistant.
Cancer treatment deserves some new lifeblood. From my perspective as a trainer, there’s been precious little (if any) support to my mom about proper nutrition, managing side effects, and the importance of light exercise, even in an immuno-compromised state. And she is receiving the best care in the state where she lives. (Thank God she has health insurance; her brother was not so lucky).
I wonder: what if cancer were managed more like a chronic illness? Maybe our loved ones would have longer lives with fewer bad side effects? Instead of killing cancer cells through chemotherapy, what if we re-educated the body’s own immune system to attack cancer cells? I think Bronson and I ought to buy some stock in this company.
