Things I have noticed over the years....
As a retired RN...if it is your time...your gonna check out...no matter what you do or not. Cancer therapies are crude, poisonous and radiation is liable to weaken the entire body even if it shrinks a local cancer. You might get rid of that particular cancer and quickly succumb to something else.
Cancer patients often have spontaneous remissions...kick themselves off the morphine...and resume life...many times the cancer will return and very quickly kill them. They should be grateful for extra bit of life...but dying is just a transition to another life (maybe with Jesus if we want it)...in my humble opinion.
What therapy to do is a personal choice...if the cancer is local and easily reached...do the surgery. But disease starts in the subtle body and mind/feelings...homeopathy, radionics, the right herbs and life style changes, diet can be a tremendous help.
Some among us are natural healers...even without trying or even knowing it...our presence, our touch may help restore the balance in another's body and mind. Some doctors are among the blessed that way...most are not. But everybody checks out when the lease is up...even the healers and holy.
I studied acupuncture at the San Francisco college of the same....although I never finished the course...it changed my thinking or expanded it. For years I have had a German made electric acupuncture machine...it works on batteries and sounds similar to the other devices talked about here. I always drag it out from under the bed when I feel the need. Someone also sold me a 'zapper' 20 years ago. It generates a square wave I believe with a 9 volt...no dials or knobs...just two copper strips on a plastic box that holds the simply circularity. I keep it near the computer and place it on my gradually enlarging stomach on occasion.
Does it help...? I don't know but I am reasonably healthy. But I also use herbal tonics that I make for my entire family and we eat healthy and cook from scratch...and meditate and pray daily and don't worry much. And I am respective of doctors but try to stay away from them.
Speaking of hope....'providing false hope'...how does one do that? I mean either we have hope or we are perhaps hopeless, but how can an intangible quality called hope, be false?
