I have heard that being diagnosed with cancer is like having your hair on fire… when your hair is on fire, the only thing you are concerned about is putting the blaze out.
But if your hair is on fire, chance are you will quickly figure out how to extinguish the flames. Cancer, on the other hand, is not so easily wiped out.
So where does one go to even begin to learn how to beat cancer?
If you are like most people, your first stop is an oncologist; someone who specializes in treating people with cancer. Typically they will use chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery to fight cancer. The oncologist doesn’t have much to offer outside of these three treatments.
Oncologists often work with an oncology nutritionist. But the focus of the cancer nutritionist is usually to maintain the weight of the patient and doesn’t have much to do with strengthening the immune system against cancer. Consider this Oncology Nutritionist that recommends “Ice cream with bananas, chocolate syrup, caramel and sprinkles” for her patients.
I am not saying that the medical route has nothing to offer. However, for those solely choosing the medical route, the 5 year survival statistics are not favorable for most cancers. Therefore it makes sense to look into lifestyle changes and adjunctive therapies that may improve your chances of beating cancer.
One resource that I trust is “The Annie Appleseed Project“. Ann Fonfa, Founder and President of the organization is herself a more than 20 year cancer survivor. Under her leadership, the Annie Appleseed Project continues to explore the latest and greatest Complementary And Alternative Medicine (CAM) treatments and helps increase awareness on the most promising advancements.
An annual Conference is held near the end of Winter every year in West Palm Beach, Florida. The location provides a warm weather vacation getaway where you can expect to learn and be inspired to take control of your health. The best part is you won’t have to abandon your current healthcare professionals.
