I’m almost afraid to write a post about natural skin cancer treatments. Some may say I’m being irresponsible. That I’m encouraging people to take their lives into their own hands.
But honestly, we’re talking about our own bodies, our precious health, and we need to take an active interest in our own welfare: ask the hard questions, educate ourselves, and insist on the best answers.
We Can’t Afford To Just Do What We’re Told
The truth is that conventional cancer treatments make people sick, kill healthy cells right along with diseased ones, and don’t guarantee that cancer won’t return in the future.
Of course, you shouldn’t try to diagnose yourself. If you have a worrisome skin growth, such as a mole that changes or becomes painful, you should consult with your doctor.
But know this: If a biopsy comes back positive for cancer, or even if it is inconclusive (meaning the doctor doesn’t know if it’s cancer or not) he or she will likely want to pursue conventional treatment either way.
Conventional treatment for skin cancer involves toxic chemicals that poison our bodies, often doing more harm than good.
It’s Time to Explore All the Possibilities
I am a person who looks for alternatives in any situation. The internet, for example, is great for that. It is truly empowering.
Online, you can find the whole gamut of doctors, researchers, and patients looking at sickness and health from a variety of perspectives. Many are people who respect modern medicine and science, but who also greatly value age-old remedies that have helped mankind heal for millennia. Remedies that can lift modern medicine to unimagined levels of expertise.
I want a doctor who looks at everything; who respects the best of both old and new. Doctors like Josh Axe and Joseph Mercola, who have the humility to believe that medical science still has a lot to learn and that all healing traditions have enormous value to contribute to this ongoing pursuit.
To be fair, I have met a few physicians in my own backyard who are open-minded and innovative. But even the most fair-minded doctors are often overwhelmed by the demands of their practice, and often don’t have the resources to investigate new therapies and ideas as much as they would like.
Serious Research is Happening Now!
Online we have the whole world at your fingertips, and it’s our responsibility to learn as much as we can.
When it comes to something like skin cancer, we need to know our true options. Many people are diagnosed and submit to conventional treatment just because they don’t know anything else exists. Or they see anything that’s unconventional immediately dismissed as “quack” medicine, so they just go along with what they are told without question.
I have seen friends die after they went along with standard cancer treatment and didn’t even know there were other possibilities.
Innovative physicians like Mercola, Axe and others are introducing exciting research to the public through their websites. Powerful medicinal plants, foods, and herbs are finally the subject of the serious scientific study they deserve.
Nature’s Remedies Outshine Our Manmade Efforts
Unfortunately, most pharmaceutical companies aren’t interested in this research, because they aren’t going to make a lot of money if people start using things like eggplant cream or black raspberry seed oil or frankincense and myrrh oil to treat skin cancer.
But it should interest us very much. These are not expensive treatments. We can buy them and use them ourselves. They will not kill our healthy cells or make us sick with side effects.
And they work. Scores of studies now show the potential of these substances. Frankincense oil, for instance, has 17 active agents that researchers are studying. They have discovered that each one targets particular cancer cells in unique ways, offering enormous healing potential.
These are nature’s remedies, chemicals more varied and complex than anything man can create in a laboratory. It is time we respect them and allow them to broaden the way before us. Anything less is gross ingratitude.
