Why are you looking at Mexico? Do you live there? There are some excellent cancer reasearch hospitals in the US. Beware of miracle cures and apricot seeds. If it sounds too good to be true, then it is. If hospitals in Mexico where turning out scores of cancer surivivors, then don't you think the secret would be out?

Good question. Seems interesting that folks like Magic Johnson whose HIV never got worse but rumored to have Ozone Therapy, Eddie Van Halen who smoked and drank his way to tounge cancer, and who still smokes by the way, was treated outside the country with "an illegal treatment that I'd be arrested for if I talk about it" and Keith Richards with his notorius lifestlye is still around after having blood cleaning treatments in Europe.

You don't think medicine is big business? Doctors who have tried to help patients with treatments that work have been threatened, had thier licenses ripped away and run out of the country. Read John Robbin's book "Reclaiming Our Health: Exploding the Medical Myth and Embracing the Sources of True Healing" for a taste of what is happening behind the scenes. I have a feeling there is a better way and I really hope I can find it before it is too late for Mark.

That question deserves another answer. I find it very odd that when my cholesterol was through the ceiling (236), the doctor didn't seem alarmed (now that "normal" cholesterol is around 200) but said he'd be happy to give me statins. First I asked why he wasn't concerned - people on both sides of my family have had heart disease, diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure, etc. "You don't have any other health issues." Not yet!!

Fast foward eight weeks after eliminating all dairy, fries (developed a habit of snacking on In And Out fries) and chocolates. I was already a vegetarian so my cholesteral was high without eating animal products. Cholesteral now 144. Next visit to the doctor he is blase about the drop. "Would you like to know how I did that?" I ask. "I guess" he replies. "I read this book ("12 Days to Dynamic Health", Dr. John McDougall), went on a vegan diet and cut all the crap out. It works!" "Well, keep doing what you're doing".

That's it?? That's all he had to say when half his patients are on blood pressure meds and statins with multiple side effects on the verge of heart attacks? "Most people wouldn't change their diet" he says. Well maybe if they knew how dramatically their life's would change, how they could avoid these expensive and dangerous drugs and how much better they would feel they would choose that route. Instead, the doctor prescribes drugs they will most likely be on for life. Isn't that a cover-up? Isnt' that a lie, a "secret"?

I have a beef with the Arthritis Association that barely has info on their site about diet. Many kinds of arthritis can be avoided and turned around simply by diet alone. Why don't they mention that on their site? Drug companies are making billions and people are in agonizing pain but this small bit of helpful information is under wraps.

What about the American Heart Association with their crappy, fatty diet for heart patients to follow that will barely make a dent in their condition? They were finally forced (by McDougall's persistance) to admit that a plant based diet is essential in lowering cholesetrol and, NEWSFLASH, that the protein in vegetables is as good as that in animal products (actually it is absorbed much more efficiently but this is an improvement) "You don't need to eat foods from animals to have enough protein in your diet. Plant proteins alone can provide enough of the essential and non-essential amino acids." This can be done without combining foods which they mistakenly suggest. http://www.americanheart.org/presenter. ... ifier=4777

The Diabetes Association - eliminating fat would basicaly cure all type II diabetes. A plant based diet would help type I's feel much better.

The American Cancer Society - don't get me started...

The American public is being snowed everyday. The Dairy Association, the Cattlemen's Association, the USDA - all these organizations make money at the expense of our health by pertetuating myths about what we should consume. And the drug companies - three words: Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). Need I say more.

I will always be suspicious of an industry that throws drugs at people in lieu of talking them into a change of lifestyle.

alternative treatments

Well said, Musiclover! I would llke to add that the Cancer Control Society has a list of names (including addresses and phone numbers) of people that have been cured of their cancer by using alternative medicine, and I'm certain alternative medicine, like conventional, will not work for every cancer patient, it would be nice if more options are given to patients at the time of diagnosis. And unfortunately, most insurance companies will only pay for conventional treatments, even though in most cases alternative treatments are less costly. There are cancer clinics in Arizona and Georgia (and probably other places as well) that use a combination of conventional and alternative treatments, and I think we will see a lot more of this in the future. Mexican cancer clinics are a great option for people that want to try treatments that are not yet available in the U.S. or Canada, and I have spoken with several people that have had amazing success after going this route. I think the most important point is that people need to keep an open mind and try to find the best treatment or treatments available for their own particular case.

IRF

Hi Rodney,

The clinic I was referring to is the Immune Recovery Foundation. http://immunerecovery.net/

There are a few others in the Atlanta area, but IRF is the one we visited and had a consultation/examination there. I first heard about it by reading posts from Tony (Glimmerofhope) on the CSN and he was pleased with the treatments he received there.

Hope this helps.

Jane
