Information on lots more alternative treatments

There are many possibilities. Here are more to look into. We do not yet know what works for each individual. Sometimes choices can be made by:

1) How the treatment fits your lifestyle 2) How easily the treatment can be done 3)Assessing how much you are willing to change in your life 4)It feels right-intuition is an unexplored area in human behavior, but it is probably very valuable

We have begun to think about the effectiveness of the drugs we have to fight cancer. We have heard many conference speakers refer to the small increments of success. Each new drug takes us only a little further on the road to helping people with cancer.

Our studies and treatments are based on large groups NOT individuals. Something is wrong.

What should be done? We propose that researchers spend time trying to discover how to tell the difference between the population of people who will benefit, from the people who cannot. Of course, one barrier to this information is who is going to pay for it? No drug company would be interested in reducing their market share by 70%. We, as patients need to keep in mind that fighting cancer is a big business. It is in our best interests to discover the differences between the groups, those who do benefit and those who do not.

As always, we recommend that we ask NCI (possibly through our Congressional representatives) to support research into the areas outlined above as well as the exploration of natural, non-toxic "alternatives" to current conventional therapies. We need government supported research when there is no financial gain expected.

There are currently books on the market discussing the value of nutrition, supplements and vitamins in preventing cancer. They are an important adjunct to any cancer patient’s recovery as we want to prevent more cancer. We encourage the use of organic foods, juicing, detoxification and vitamins/supplements. Studies show they are effective and relatively safe. Find out for yourself by reading Dr. Mitchell Gaynor’s Cancer Prevention Book; The Strang Cancer Center Cookbook; Dr. Charles Simone's Cancer and Nutrition; and Patrick Quillan's Beating Cancer With Nutrition. There are more good ones.

It’s not our only defense but it cannot hurt to explore the natural, non-toxic whole substances area. Eat fruits and vegetables. Consider a diet low in fat (olive oil and flax seed oil are good), low in salt, high in fiber. It’s good for you heart and can help hypertension and diabetes too. As with treatment this information is based on a combination of epidemiological studies and animal, in vitro and a few in vivo studies.

Encourage human studies in this area.
