Please support The Michigan Holistic Nurses Association if you live in Michigan. They are a wonderful resource, and my having had a holistic hospice nurse probably contributed to my getting kicked out of hospice almost 4 years ago!

    You probably know some of this information, but considering the conformational bias of the mainstream health authorities you may not have been exposed to all of these facts:

    Angiogenesis is how tumors grow. Turns out most of us have hundreds of small groups of cancer cells but we do not show symptoms until there is 70% degradation of an organ.

    Watch this ted-talk by Dr. William Li, especially if your job is to administer medications and treatments for patients sick with cancer: Go here for information on Anti-angiogenesis:

    Dr. Leonard Coldwell:

    Dr. Peter Glidden cites a recent study that concludes better than 97% of the time, chemotherapy does not work. However, it is one of the leading treatments in the fight against cancer. Dr. Glidden explains why it is still the case. It was the study of a 12-year program that led him to this conclusion: Did you hear that? The only clinical trial for chemo was one patient that died two months later anyway! Please stop giving cancer patients chemotherapy and Targeted radiation treatment.

    The era of cancer chemotherapy began in the 1940s with the first use of nitrogen mustards and folic acid antagonist drugs. At the same time doctors were advertizing cigarettes on TV as being healthy. The process has developed over time to include targeted radiology, a carcinogen; all in the pursuit of killing cancer cells but the result is the poisoning of the host along with the cancer tumor. Also any level of radiation will cause the corresponding amount of damage (any amount has an effect). Examination when necessary is probably worth the risk.

    “Targeted radiation oncology or XRT or DXT uses ionizing radiation (that is: High-energy radiation capable of producing ionization in substances through which it passes. It includes nonparticulate radiation, such as x-rays, and radiation produced by energetic charged particles, such as alpha and beta rays, and by neutrons)… When ionizing radiation is emitted by or absorbed by an atom, it can liberate an atomic particle (typically an electron, proton, or neutron, but sometimes an entire nucleus) from the atom. Such an event can alter chemical bonds and produce ions, usually in ion-pairs, that are especially chemically reactive…. Ionizing radiation works by damaging the DNA of exposed tissue leading to cellular death.”

    Instead, try starving these “Vampire-Zombie” tumor cells by inhibiting the growth of blood vessels by isolating the compounds in cancer fighting herbs and plants that are anti-angiogenic, extracting them, and then administering those compounds to people sick with cancer; or just feed them the whole foods and herb oils.

    Cancers are caused by: a mistake during mitosis, a type of virus {new info: It might also (all) be a fungus} and are caused by carcinogenic: air, water, and food molecules; plus certain frequencies of communication radiation around electronics that are all coming into contact with the DNA or RNA and changing their shape (and/or quantum color) and therefore the function of the Nucleotides. Unfortunately most commercial produce is irradiated to prolong it’s decay for a longer shelf life and radiation from cell phones and towers are everywhere.

    Be aware of the molecules, particles, and energy waves that bond with our bodies. Every atom in your body (except some in the brain) get totally exchanged with the environment every 5 to 7 years or so and the subatomic-particles that make up the Newtonian partials in those atoms are in a constant state of flux with the other matter/energy around it. Those atoms make up molecules that are also constantly being interchanged by the body in chemical reactions like oxygenation of hemoglobin, digestion, ketosis, etc.

    How about preventative action:

    Avoid damage to your atoms by, if at all possible, not being near: a cell tower, high-voltage power-line, operational cell phone, or WiFi emitter (ask electro-sensitive people about this). The amplitude of the electromagnetic energy waves do diminish in intensity exponentially with distance. {A tin foil hat sound pretty good right about now}

    And stay far away from these cancer/illness causing foods like GMO’s, burned food, microwaved food or water {my own conjecture is: microwaves mess with the leptons and quarks of exposed matter}(why did Russia ban microwaves in 1976?) , unwashed/irradiated store bought veggies and fruits, conventional corn-fed meat with antibiotics and hormones added, anything with artificial: dyes, sweeteners, flavouring, [starch, or purified: glucose or fructose (having a glycation effect)]. Did you know our liver can produce its own glucose for the only type of cell that needs it; the red blood cells? Of course, always buy fresh, organic, and local. Only consume wild or grass-fed meat and pesticide free plants.

    Dr. Berzinky’s non-toxic treatment: preview Movie:

    Here try this cheap drug suppressed by the pharmaceutical industry (Sodium dichloroacetate): It’s cheap. It works. Just because the drug manufacturers won’t patent it, that does not mean you cannot use it. What is your job; to heal sick people or make profit for corporations and their shareholders?

    Cancer patients should be eating lots of these foods: But almost none of them are.

    Over the past 60 years, thousands of people have used the Gerson Therapy to recover from so-called “incurable” diseases, including: Cancer (including melanoma, breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, lymphoma, pancreatic cancer and many others) Diabetes, Heart disease, Arthritis, Autoimmune disorders, and many others.

    Tommy Chong is living proof that Cannabis and diet is an effective solution to cancer:

    Diet-related disease causing death is over 60%. Are you what you eat? I say yes; you are what you eat, breath, (touching permeable chemicals through skin) and drink; because how could your body consist of any other molecules than those you consume.

    Why do we feed bland food with low levels of nutrients to sick people while at hospitals? This is illogical. Why is there a disconnect between nutrition and medicine? Lets change the way we do things. Remember, what you resist persists; especially when you treat the illness with the very thing that causes the illness (Carcinogens). Instead of being anti-cancer/illness try thinking differently and be pro-health.

    I would suggest everyone read this information about optimum nutrition by Dr. Nora Gedgaudas: Her book cites several studies that contradict the current general understanding by the world population of proper eating habits; due to old dogma perpetuated by the status quo and of criminals in the position of control over what foods and medicines that are allowed to be sold and consumed.

    “I am told that, before the food was privatized, the food was much better. At RJH each floor had a chef making fresh food for the patients. What they bring now mostly looks like vomit on a plate.”-recent hospital patient in Victoria Canada.

    Hey, why not put copious amounts of beautiful plants all around the patient’s beds while you’re at it.

    I just thought of four new occupations. A hospital chef: for cooking healthy fresh meals as medicine; a hospital patient room gardener/florist: to maintain the beautiful plants around the beds of the patients; a herbal botanist: to make certain combinations of herbs tinctures. They are all perfect to compliment the new field of medicine called nutritional oncology. Have a garden of herbs, veggies, and fruits right at, or near, the hospital.

    For more insights on cancer watch these other 4 Ted Talks here:

    Set aside your ego before reading this:
    The Hippocratic oath you probably took states: “I will apply dietetic measures for the benefit of the sick according to my ability and judgement; I will keep them from harm and injustice.” and “I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody if asked for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect” I am sorry but when I look around I do not see the effects of this ideology pertaining to cancer treatment. Although I do not accuse you of any intentional wrongdoing. It is not your fault. Blame the doctors and medical scientists from 70 years ago. Is that why they call it the Hippocratic oath? Hypocrisy by definition considering what happens in real life. Powerful toxic man-made chemical compounds and doses of radiation are NOT dietetic measures. Please, first do no harm. Treat the root cause not the symptoms.

    Prescription drugs kill more people in the US than cocaine and heroin combined. Nobody ever died of Cannabis or Turmeric. Where do you get your chemo drugs and radiology machines from? Beware of disinformation from the industries and regulatory bodies involved.

    17% of all chemo nurses are exposed to the toxins on the job while “medicating”. Why do I have to say the word toxin when describing “medicine”? If you are a nurse you have the right to refuse unsafe and ineffective treatment. “The right to know means that employers must inform nurses about hazards within their workplaces. Nurses should be trained to recognize hazards and informed about their rights under the law. Where hazards exist, employers must create safe work procedures, and train staff to ensure their health and safety is protected… The key to resolving the right to refuse unsafe work situations is to be involved in real-time solutions and discussion with the goal of delivering safe patient care.”-MNU Front Lines Magazine.

    PS: If you know about the placebo effect then why do you not use that technique all the time? When you tell a patient their (low) chances of survival, from treatment, that is causing the opposite nocebo effect.

    Thank you for your time.

    Be Pro Good Not Anti Bad.
