Rethinking Cancer Newsletter #67

According to a recent major international study, many women with early-stage breast cancer, who are being prescribed chemotherapy under current medical standards, do not need it!

While this sounds like a breakthrough and will, no doubt, allow thousands of patients to avoid devastating toxic protocols, it is, by no means, to use a familiar phrase, “rethinking cancer.” For well over a century, conventional orthodoxy has defined cancer as the tumor which simply appears for some unknowable reason. Therefore, the answer to cancer has been, and remains, the destruction of the mass using procedures, such as chemotherapy and radiation, which, indeed, kill cancer cells, but can severely harm healthy cells and impair normal body function. These treatments have no intrinsic healing properties. They can buy some time, but the damage can be permanent and, too often, the cancer returns because the body’s natural healing capacity has been so compromised.

The Biorepair approach views cancer as a systemic problem. The tumor is a symptom of a biochemical breakdown which has resulted in the production of abnormal cells. This can be corrected with a comprehensive, non-toxic metabolic program which re-balances and strengthens all body functions in order to produce healthy cells and restore well being. Without correcting the cause of the problem, you can annihilate all cancer cells at any given time, but the body will continue producing abnormal cells. It becomes a game of whack-a-mole.

So, yes, it’s good that early stage breast cancers, which would likely never develop into serious disease, will not longer be treated with chemo, though Tamoxifen and other hormone treatments will continue and have their own problems. Sadly, in all cases, the primary goal of conventional cancer treatment remains the destruction of cancer cells, instead of the repair of the whole body.

To your health!

Why a Little Bitter Is Better

Most people are naturally drawn to the taste off sweet. Perhaps this sends a message to the brain that you will get energy to carry on. But a bitter taste emits a very different signal — on guard, this could be poison! Here’s the bitter truth: bitter foods in small doses have tremendous health benefits. READ MORE

Roasted Radishes & Leeks with Thyme

Here’s a pleasant way to get your bitters:

2 bunches radishes (approx. 1 lb.), cut in half if small, or quartered, if large
2 tablespoons butter from grass-fed animals — let soften at room temperature
½ teaspoon unrefined salt (seasalt, Celtic, Himalayan)
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 large leek, white and light green part — halved and sliced thin
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped fine or ¼ teaspoon dried

  1. Preheat oven to 450° F.
  2. Mix radishes, 1 tablespoon butter, salt and pepper in a bowl, then spread out on a large roasting pan.
  3. Roast for 10 minutes, then stir in the leek slices.
  4. Continue roasting about 10-15 minutes more — until the radishes are lightly browned and tender.
  5. Transfer to a serving dish. Stir in the thyme and remaining tablespoon of butter.
  6. Serve warm as an appetizer or side dish.
