Why Do Different Cancer Therapies Work? : Exclusive Renegade Health Article

There might be more than one legitimate way to get this sucker.

I’ve heard a ton of stories about people healing cancer naturally…

It’s an amazing thing to listen to them. They all share the same result — someone’s life is now longer and more fulfilled because they were able to get better without extensive damage to their bodies (See: most general Western cancer treatments.)

As you may know, my family has its own stories about cancer. For one, the result was a positive. For the other, it wasn’t.

My mother survived breast cancer, chemotherapy and surgery. My father did not survive his brain cancer treatment and died when I was 2. (I don’t question how they were treated, by the way. I don’t think there’s any good in doing so.)

These two personal stories have lead me to dig deeper into natural cancer research.

I’ve interviewed and visited some of the best natural cancer doctors in the U.S. Hopefully, I’ll visit more from other countries as the years go on.

I’ve produced the Healing Cancer World Summit — where over 50,000 people listened in to hear the most cutting edge research on natural cancer therapies. This is the largest natural cancer forum in the world — and we’re doing it again in 2012 (stay tuned!)

I’ve also read countless books on the subject.

For me, it’s been something of a passion project for you and for me. I don’t want you to lose a loved one like I did and I also — more personally — want to protect myself and my family from more stories like we’ve already had.

One thing that stands out the most…

Throughout my own personal study, I have to say the most intriguing thing I’ve discovered is this:

While the end result of these survival stories is the same, the means or method of getting there can be totally different.

I’ve talked to people who used the Gerson Therapy. I’ve talked to people who have worked with Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez. I’ve heard stories from Hippocrates, from Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy, from Dr. Francisco Contreras — from practically every center there is at least one story.

This is fantastic, since it seems to indicate that there are multiple ways to be successful, but it’s confusing for the same reason — there are multiple ways to be successful.

When you’re given an “apparent” closing time for your life (diagnosis of cancer), it would be much easier just to get the manual to learn how to keep the lights on for longer — but when there are so many ways to do this, it’s hard to keep focus, or even know where to start.

Since I understand this potential predicament that a cancer patient who is massively confused could be in, I’ve been working to try to figure out how I could look into the similarities within the differences. My mind usually works in ways to try to make these types of connections, so I’m good that this — but I’ve also enlisted the experts to help me too.

What I’ve come up with is 5 reasons why — outside of specific treatments — people may heal from cancer (and likely other diseases.)

Here we go…

1. Attitude Rules.

I was sitting with Annmarie and Dr. Gonzalez at a cafe in New York City and I asked him this question…

“How much does attitude play into healing cancer.”

He said it was everything.

I was on the phone with Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy.

I asked her this question…

“How much does attitude play into healing cancer.”

One of the most important things, she told me.

Dr. Francisco Contreras?

He explained improving attitude is essential.

I think you get it.

The attitude of the patient seems to me, to be one of the most important inductors of potential success or failure of the treatment.

Go in thinking you can win, and your chances increase — regardless of the actual protocol.

2. All the natural protocols take out the bad stuff.

It doesn’t matter if the program includes juicing, or vitamin C therapy, or flax oil, or enzymes, or anything else — every natural cancer therapy that is successful removes these items:

  • Processed Foods
  • Processed Sugar
  • Alcohol
  • Drugs
  • Cigarettes

Removing these factors may likely be more valuable than some of the treatments added. (Though, I’d be cautious to just remove those things and hope for the best.)

Taking them away simply allows the body to repair without further interference from substances that could further break it down.

3. There are different reasons for inflammation.

Inflammation has been noted as the main cause of disease. This is great to know, but it’s rather ambiguous.

The reason why is because if we don’t know the cause of inflammation then we can’t stop it.

The good news is that we know some sources.

These include the list above under #2, plus…

  • Pesticides
  • Environmental toxins
  • Household toxins
  • Stress
  • Bad relationships
  • Meaningless job
  • Excessive exercise
  • Bad attitude
  • EMFs and other electrical frequencies
  • Radiation in the environment

This is a partial list and I’m sure you can add a dozen or two more, but the reason I bring this up is because when someone is going through treatment they may or may not eliminate some of these items — without even knowing it.

What if their treatment caused them to take leave from their job that they hate? Stress = inflammation.

What if their treatment causes them to move away from a place that was physically toxic — their home, their community, etc. Toxins = inflammation.

What if they completely changed their attitude once they got cancer? Bad attitude = inflammation.

So outside of the protocol given to them, something else may change that can improve their chances of survival.

4. We do have different genetics.

Despite what some doctors will tell you, some of our bodies do respond differently to different diets.

For example, some people gain massive weight when they eat carbs, others stay trim.

Dr. Gonzalez has a very specific way of identifying which diet works best for the patient — based on their metabolic type.

Matching a diet to your metabolic type, very well, could increase your healing potential. It could also account for why some people just seem to respond to different treatments that have wildly different diets.

5. Commitment can sometimes be just as important as the treatment.

This is a smaller factor and more slippery, but I think it’s worth mentioning.

Commitment to something — or more importantly “trust” — can be a factor that influences who heals and who doesn’t.

So, it’s not exactly the particular treatment that completely works, it’s a combination of the therapy, plus your attitude, plus your trust in the process.

Would you jump if you knew your parachute wouldn’t open? Of course not.

So when you pick a protocol, knowing as much about the successes and your chances is essential for you to build trust in the process — and possibly increase your chances of survival.

To make this even more simple…

Basically, to simplify this even more, I think the essential point I’m trying to make is to let you know that there may be more factors that we can account for in the healing process. The more we set ourselves up for success, the more likely we will succeed in our own healing journeys.

Want to learn about this protocol?

Over the years, I’ve heard about a lot of different options. One of them is the Budwig Protocol.

This is a unique protocol that some people have told me that they’ve used successfully.

One of the first places I learned about it is here.

This is a book that you can purchase that will give you the exact protocol that Bill Henderson used to heal his own cancer.

I love books like this since they give real world stories and they include tangible information that you can introduce to your health coach — particularly if you’re working to heal cancer naturally.

If you’d like to learn more about the Budwig Protocol, you can do so here in this book:


A note from Kev on the page: You’ll see there is a lot of hyped-up marketing. If I were you, I wouldn’t look too deeply into it or let it influence your opinion on the content of the book. Just like the Encyclopedia of Medical Breakthroughs and Cancer Step Outside the Box, this book is totally worth the value — regardless of the somewhat over the top marketing. This book, has also sold tens of thousands of copies — maybe more over the years — so its staying power indicates its value!

Your question of the day: Why do you think more than one cancer treatment may be able to work?

Live Awesome!

He started seriously researching personal and preventative natural health therapies in 2002 when he was struck with the reality that cancer ran deep in his family and if he didn’t change the way he was living — he might go down that same path. Since then, he’s written and edited 6 books on the subject of natural health, diet and fitness. During this time, he’s constantly been humbled by what experts claim they know and what actually is true. This has led him to experiment with many diets and protocols — including vegan, raw food, fasting, medical treatments and more — to find out what is myth and what really works in the real world.

Kevin has also traveled around the world searching for the best protocols, foods, medicines and clinics around and bringing them to the readers of his blog RenegadeHealth.com — which is one of the most widely read natural health blogs in the world with hundreds of thousands of visitors a month from over 150 countries around the world.
