“No problem can be solved with the same level of consciousness that created it.” – Albert Einstein

On 23 December 1971, 47 years ago today, President Nixon Declared a “War On Cancer.” Have you ever wondered why we don’t appear to be winning this so called war? Despite billions spent on cancer research since then, one in two American men and one in three American women are expected to get cancer in their lifetimes. This is mirrored throughout Europe and in the Western world. 

So if the current method of “war on cancer” and “fighting cancer” and “beating cancer.” often accompanied by the increasingly popular hashtag #f**kcancer, clearly isn’t working, maybe it’s time to for us all to shift our consciousness – our thinking - around what cancer actually is. Maybe it’s time to redefine it away from what the mainstream leads us to believe that it is. And maybe it’s time to actually take a little look inside the medical industry and do a little digging to see what’s really happening here. 

Between 2015 and 2016, I lost three friends to cancer. Friends of mine have lost friends or partners since. As you might imagine, this lit a fire in me to investigate. Already in the health and wellness space, I went on a quest to figure out what this whole cancer thing was really about. Much like the quest I went on to figure out why my father suffered a stroke, unnecessarily. When I say I lost three friends to cancer, what I really mean is that they died - and we are led to believe that they died from cancer.

What am I talking about? This quote from the phenomenal The Truth About Cancer really got me thinking.

 “It is NOT actually the cancer that kills people. Statistically, 42 to 46 per cent of patients who have cancer will die of cachexia. This is the wasting away of protein. They essentially lose all their lean body mass. The remaining percentage die from…the TREATMENT.” – Dr Buttar

If he is correct, this means my friends died from either the treatment or the wasting away of protein – not the cancer itself. And if my maths serves me correctly, 54-58% die from the treatment.

 “When a patient’s immune system is suppressed and they develop cancer, it is an organ failure that actually takes them. It might be liver failure, kidney failure, pneumonia, sepsis or anything else. [To add insult to injury]…all of these things are usually associated with the person receiving chemo and radiation.”

So if no one dies from cancer, what exactly is it? Let’s pretend we’re Einstein for a minute, and shift our level of consciousness and see if it might not actually be, what we are led to believe that it is.

What if cancer is actually trying to tell us something?

Why is that people who have healed their bodies from cancer the holistic way, often say; “Cancer saved my life?”

I aim to answer these questions in this podcast so you feel more empowered around your own health and how powerful your body is in healing itself.
