What You Need to Know about Cancer’s History, Treatment, and Prevention
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) “Cancer is a leading cause of death and disability globally, impacting more than 14 million people each year.” Consequently, prevention is the best option available for these noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) era.
The Truth about Cancer is the attempt of Ty Bollinger to cope with losing several relatives, including his parents to cancer; he realized “the idea that our modern medical system is actually trying to cure disease and keep people healthy is nothing but smoke and mirrors.”
Part I of The Truth about Cancer explains the history of medicine and the politics of cancer. Ty Bollinger presents “the true and lost history of medicine and the ways in which this former art form was hijacked by special interests and turned into a profit-generating machine.”
Part II of The Truth about Cancer deals with cancer diagnosis, detection, causes, and prevention.
What’s cancer? “Cancer, in essence, can be summed up as a failure of the immune system to eradicate abnormal cells before they take root and become full-blown cancer.” Moreover, Dr. Leonard Coldwell explains “Cancer is the cure. People don’t understand that. Cancer is there to save your life. When your body is so toxic that you are going to die of the poison, the body builds a bag and stuff all the poison in there and locks it up-the tumor.”
The approach to prevent and/or reverse disease deals with different aspects as: “minimizing exposure to toxins; eating a clean diet*; exercising (and sweating!) regularly; minimizing stress; and maintaining healthy relationships.”
Bollinger gathered treatments that differ from the standard procedure of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery so anyone can make a choice after knowing all the different protocols available, and create a personalized treatment with their physicians according to their needs. For example:
Thermograms are “a safe, side effect-free alternative to mammograms” using infrared heat to “detect physiological abnormalities indicative of a possible breast cancer diagnosis.”
Human Chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) urine immunoassay, “Thousands of cancer survivors have used this test over the years to keep track of their treatments(s) success and check the status of their remission.”
ONCOblog test “is capable of revealing a cancer’s organ(s) of origin with about 96 percent of accuracy.”
Part III of The Truth about Cancer covers treatment protocols, such as:
- Herbal remedies, Detoxification, and Diet.
- Sound, light, electricity, Frequency and Heat.
- Bio-oxidative therapies.
- Treating Cancer with Viruses and Essential Oils.
- Enzyme and metabolic/mitochondrial therapy.
Ty Bollinger message is to “adopt a holistic, anticancer lifestyle that supports the health of the three primary components that make up a human being: mind, body, and spirit.” However, the book focuses mainly on body treatments.
The documentary The Truth about Cancer: A Global Quest covers more information, and the visuals make it more powerful than the book, but still the book is useful as a quick reference guide.
The Truth about Cancer has a Facebook account and a web page for more information.
*Considering a clean diet, besides what the book presents, my first resource about diet is from Dr. John McDougall, Dr. Neal Barnard, and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.
