Chemotherapy (Chemo) for cancer treatment should be considered a crime. There is such a misunderstanding among the general public of what chemotherapy is and the long term (negative) effects it has on our bodies. The chemicals used in chemotherapy should be considered highly toxic – they also have devastating side effects when introduced to the body. A few of these chemicals include:
- Fluorouracil – Side effects include fatigue, ulcerations of the lining of the mouth, anemia and reduced immune function.
- Paclitaxel – Side effects include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of hair and mouth ulcers.
- Cisplatin – Side effects include nausea, vomiting and hair loss.
All of these chemical share a common characteristic. They all either prevent cells from replicating or kill the ones that do.
Key phrase here is “…prevent cells from replicating or kill that ones that do.” There is a big problem with this, and this is where chemotherapy turns deadly. Chemotherapy (chemo) for cancer treatment not only prevents cancer cells from replicating or dividing, it prevents ALL fast-dividing cells from replicating – healthy ones included. These cells can be found in:
- Digestive System
- Bone Marrow
- Immune system in general (white blood cells)
An important fact to remember, is that cancer cells are present in everyone. Yes, that includes both you and I. We all have cancer cells circulating throughout our bodies. Fortunately, our healthy immune systems can take care of these cancer cells before they can cause any serious harm to our bodies (tumors).
When our immune systems weaken, they no longer have the ability to prevent these cancer cells from replicating and forming into tumors. Chemotherapy, for the most part, targets these tumors and cancer cells, but it also targets healthy cells as well. While the chemo treatment may be killing the cancer cells, it is also weakening the immune system as well.
Infections within the body can arise and you may become devastatingly sick. Unfortunately, because the chemotherapy has destroyed your immune system, it can no longer fight the infection and sickness. So, what do doctors do? They give you even more drugs to fight the infection. It’s a vicious circle folks – don’t fall into the same trap that so many others diagnosed with cancer have.
And, it doesn’t stop there.
Let’s say the chemotherapy was successful in eliminating the targeted cancer tumor. The doctor tells you you’re all better and you’ll be back to normal in no time. All is fine and dandy, right? Not always the case unfortunately.
In most cases, the cancer will return. Why is this? The chemotherapy has not solved the core issue here. The issue is, when it comes to cancer:
“Cancer tumors form when the immune system can no longer prevent the cancer cells in the body from replicating and forming tumors within the body.”
What does chemotherapy (chemo) for cancer do? It weakens the immune system. Interestingly enough, that’s how cancer tumors form in the first place! Chemotherapy is only compromising it further – which is why most chemotherapy patients will only become even sicker (with even more health issues) and eventually die. They keep returning for chemo treatments until they simple fade away…after spending tens, even hundreds of thousands of dollars on treatments that are doing the opposite of what doctors are telling them.
If you or a loved one is diagnosed with a cancer tumor, it would be advisable to avoid chemotherapy (chemo) for cancer treatments at all costs. Instead, focus on changing your diet regimen which should include a vast amount of nutrients and herbs that quickly build and repair the immune system. Scale back on the intake of sugar and saturated fats, and stay active. You’d be surprised at what you can do by simply changing your diet and lifestyle!
