Cancer...who's had it and did you cure it naturally?

People don't want to know that cancer is curable. Most just trust their doctors to tell them the truth. Most would think that you're a nut if you believe cancer is curable without radiation and chemotherapy.

Does anyone have any testimonials of having gone through cancer treatment (whether conventionally or naturally)?

that's not true, he had a form that had a high cure rate.

This question, as it is, is very argumentative and will be closed unless it is re-worded.

some cancers cannot be vanquished by chemo and radiation, pancreatic is a good example. You might live a few years if you're lucky, but it gets you in the end. If Steve Jobs had taken the conventional medical route, he might have had more time. But a cure? doubtful.

"Cancer" is a whole lot of different diseases. Not all cancers respond to chemo. Not all cancers respond to radiation. It makes me uncomfortable and even a little angry to see it referred to, en mass, as curable. Sorry for going off topic, PH'ers, but the implication in the first paragraph here just chaps me. Plenty of people are absolutely beyond the reach of fixing any other way than modern chemical and radiological assault. It's horrible but true. And some people can heal themselves. But it has very little to do with effort or belief. Ben, am I misunderstanding you?

The idea that people don't want to know that cancer is curable is beyond insane. Pretty much everyone on this planet has had friends and family die because of cancer. DIE. Families are willing to bankrupt themselves to stop it. And if they turn to homeopathy or some other bullshit to cure it, their loved ones still die, except sometimes faster than they would have otherwise with more effective interventions.

I'd love to see some hard evidence about cancer being curable. If that cure was eating horse shit, fine, still love to see the evidence. But it had better be damn good evidence, because otherwise you're just misleading people who are stressed to hell and who don't need to deal with horse shit.

Inasmuch as there is anything we can do about cancer, it's not get it in the first place, and then you're talking basic paleo dogmas: less cancer observed in primitive populations, don't eat too much sugar, and so forth. That's all well and good. But if you end up getting it anyway, don't screw around.

I highly recommend "Anticancer" by David Servan-Scrieber. It was very helpful to my family as my dad was dying of pancreatic cancer. He makes the case that we all harbor cancer cells. He emphasizes the "terrain" - the background state of the body, in a description of some of the things we can do to prevent these cells from developing into an out-of-control tumor and metastatic cancer. In this way of looking at cancer, which I happen to agree with, cancer is not something that you can eradicate or cure. It's something you live with.

But remember that there are many factors involved in the development of this terrain - genetics, environment, lifestyle, - some we can control and some we can't. And he also emphasizes that conventional medical treatment is an essential component. He died recently after a long struggle with brain cancer.

Well, I don't know. Pretty much any cancer prognosis is better when (a) caught sooner rather than later, and (b) eradicated as quickly as possible when detected.

Can it be cured w/o chemo and/or radiation? Sure. Will it? Maybe, maybe not.

But I've heard that Steve Jobs regretted seeking out alternative therapies first when he was diagnosed.

I see natural interventions as beneficial in conjunction with the modern ones and/or when all else fails. But if I were diagnosed tomorrow, get it out and gone ASAP.
