In the United Kingdom, it would be illegal for anyone other than a medically qualified oncologist to treat cancer. Nevertheless, some adults opt for self-administered naturopathic treatment ‘since chemotherapy, with all its cruel and degrading side effects, is remarkably ineffective, contributing only about 2% to the five-year cancer survival rate, which amounts to only about an extra five weeks of life over a five-year period’ (1).
Cancer is associated with impaired immune system function and consequent biological inability to naturally destroy cancer cells as they develop (apoptosis). This is why conventional research designed to further impair immune system function is such questionable science.
The immune system is liable to be compromised by stress factors such as psychological stress, dental mercury poisoning, cadmium poisoning from traffic fumes, harmful electromagnetic radiation and by environmental chemical pollution (endocrine disruption).
There are many authenticated case histories in which naturopathic treatment to support the immune system in cancer patients, has resulted in so-called ‘spontaneous recovery’.
