Wellness in the War on Cancer

Modern Science has made tremendous progress with Cancer.
We have made progress in creating cancer and in killing cancer, in researching cancer, in finding cancer early and hopefully in preventing cancer.
We are even beginning to think about Wellness in the War on Cancer.

We are very experienced with Cancer, all kinds of cancers, even though there hardly ever was a case of Cancer a few hundred years ago; we now have all kinds of experience with cancer.

When traditional medicine was being practiced extensively and exclusively, when traditional medicine was at it’s wisdom peak, people simply weren’t getting all that many cancers. So a traditional cure for cancer wasn’t developed way back then because there was no need to treat a disease that wasn’t around, that hadn’t arrived or occurred.

Cancer is a modern disease and we rely upon a modern cure. We have made great progress with our War on Cancer adapting the science of war, its techniques, its strategies, and its weapons as part and parcel of modern medicine. Chemical weapons similar to those banned by the Geneva Convention are used in modern medicine. We call that chemotherapy. Chemical poisons given with skill and compassion. Radiation is radiation, nuclear weapons applied with skill and compassion. Surgery removes what they can with skill and compassion. Skill developed on basic medical science and scientific clinical studies and the development of protocols.

In the War on Cancer the battlefield is your own precious human body. The cancer is the enemy and the collateral damage, that’s all your, your own precious human body.

The difference being that war is done with meanness out of aversion, hatred of an enemy and fear; whereas medicine is done with compassion out of aversion, hatred for a disease and fear. Every type of cancer has its own protocol.

Even the survivors are asking where is the Wellness in the War on Cancer?

Particularly for the survivors of cancer, the cancer is gone but they still are not 100% better. Just as soon as you stop the poison your body starts healing, but its injured and poisoned. The burn from the radiation burns for days but when the fire is out your body starts healing, but its been injured. Same is true for surgery.

Where is the wellness, where is the rehab?

Wellness can take many forms. Usually people will think of Diet and Exercise. Others will add psychological methods, yoga or meditation. Mostly everyone becomes more spiritual—whatever spiritual tradition they may embrace even if it is none. Western people look to Oriental Medicine, Acupuncture, herbs, yoga and meditation; Easter people look to Western medical science. The NIH, US government National Institute of Health, has begun to investigate Alternative and Complementary Medicine. Drug Companies are investigating non-toxic immune therapies and the FDA is cooperating.

To date, many people have claimed but nobody has proclaimed any magic bullet for Cancer.

I’m not that foolish to claim anything but I would like to share a few thoughts on possibilities and strategies and what modern science finds even before these finding may find themselves in a protocol or clinical study. It takes 10 to 15 years for basic science to get into the text books, longer to get into a study, clinical study and even longer to get into a protocol.
