PAGET’S DISEASE: BREAST, NIPPLE, FEAR AND SCALPEL
TO BE OPERATED OR NOT TO BE OPERATED
Dear Valdo, a friend of mine’s fiancé was diagnosed with Paget’s disease of the breast. By the end of the month she has to decide whether to have the operation or to follow some other therapy. I await your reflections on the matter. Also, what would Scaffidi advise?
L.B from Parma.
PERSONAL REFLECTIONS ON THE SUBJECT
Dear Luigi, first of all I’m not in competion with Scaffidi, quite the contrary we are very close both as friends as well as collaborators. However as you have solicited my personal opinion, I will not disappoint you. I’m also attaching some articles on this specific subject which I wrote in the last 2 years including “The female Calvary of the breast lump” from 01/01/11, whose title makes it only too clear what we are talking about.
AN UNPRECEDENTED TERRORIST CAMPAIGN
Tumoural and swellings similar to tumours of the breast, are very common.
There are about thirty thousand cases a year in England, and annually they constantly increase. More or less the same situation exists in Italy. However 90% of cases are benign, which means they can be resolved without operations.
The health reccomendations which are to have monthly check-ups, to have a biopsy of the tissues analyzed, and to be cured immediately (with the partial of total breast removal) are part of a world-wide campaign intended to terrorize women and make them insecure, vulnerable and doctor-dependent. In such campaigns they donìt spend a word to say that diets high in fat, high in protein, low in carbo-hydrates, high in sodium and low in potasium – similar to the Zone diet, the Atkins diet and even the Mediterranean diet, are the principle causes of all breast cancers, Paget and non-Paget.
A SITE THAT IS ANYTHING EXCEPT RELAXING
The most curious news I’ve collected is on a website paradoxically called LET’S RELAX FORUM, which has as its symbol, good old Donald duck, snoozing placidly in a hammock. Except that rather than relaxing, the prankster or sarcastic author of the piece, who signs himself as Cloud, lets rip with spurs dug in, and a terrorist scowl like you never before, because, he says, a new kind of clearly malignant breast cancer has appeared. I cite this fact because it mirrors the medical way of presenting things.
A ROLL ON THE DRUMS DIRECTED TO ALL WOMEN OF THE WORLD
“Transmit this message to all the women you know. To your mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts and girl friends. Be on high alert!” And it goes on to describe in great detail the story of a woman who after having been cured of a cutaneous eruption on the breast with anitbiotics, (the initial mammograph was negative) continued to feel bad, and only after a second mammograph, followed by a biopsy, did she discovered that the tumefazione (swelling) was hiding a very malign tumour called Paget’s disease.
A FUNEREAL AND INSTRUCTIVE STORY
The same woman, after a cycle of chemotherapy to reduce the size of the tumour, undergoes a mastectomy (complete removal of the breast) followed by more chemotherapy and also radiotherapy. During 9 minths of treatment the tumour vanishes (medical triumphalism). The next year the woman lives every day to the full (you’ll understand what kind of full – with one breast missing). But the tumour reappears around the liver. She is subjected to 4 more treatments and then decides not to undergo another chemotherapy, as it make her life impossible. She enjoys another 5 months, with the use of morphine to reduce the pain, and then she leaves for the next world, loaded with honours.
A TESTIMONY PERFECTLY IN LINE WITH THE POLITICS OF HEALTH
As if this weren’t enough, the medical establishment then plucks from its hand a message cum testimony asking that it be transmitted to the whole feminine universe. “Women, be very careful if you notice anything abnormal in your breasts. Insist on immediate treatment. Paget’s disease attacks the nipple. It’s a rare form of breast tumour which appears externally between the nipple and the areola. It appears as a cutaneous erruption which transforms into a lesion which forms a crust which can be painful and itchy, but nothing more. Almost insignificant symptoms such as a persistent redness, a strong sensation of burning and sweating. I underwent mega doses of chemotherapy, 28 radiotherapy treatments, as well as a cure based on Tamoxifene. If my breast tumour had been diagnosed more rapidly, maybe it woudn’t have spread”.
A BLOOD-CURDLING HYMN TO DISABLEMENT
Why do I report this story? Do even I want to create panic and insane medical terrorism? Do even I want to contest the dying wishes of a poor woman who was subjected all that torture just to end up in the worst state possible on morphine? It could well be that the message is authentic. The description of her illness is precise, detailed and reliable. The woman who passed away however was certainly not speaking with her own mind and her own tongue, but rather with the brains of the doctors who were close by, above all in her therapeutic considerations. Never in her life did she think or hear that other than surgery there even exists hygienism and natural cures, just to mention one of them.
Not a word about food and life style, but only a horrifying invitation to play in anticipation, at letting herself be mutilated at the dawn of evil.
TECHNICAL DEFINITION OF PAGET DISEASE OF THE BREAST
Let’s leave this extremely sad event and get back to ourselves. The Englishman James Paget (1814-1899) is considered together with Rudolf Virchow as one of the founders of medical pathology. He is remembered for oncological research into breast (or rather nipple) cancer, also called Paget’s disease. The alteration consists of a tumour of the infiltrating ducts which develops from the principal ductal structures, and then infiltrates and grows progressively under the skin of the nipple and the areola, while the surroundinnng breast tissue is characterized by oedema and congestion. A purulent, or lymphatic exudation is also often present, with the excretion of a bloody serum from the nipple. Clinically the lesion is similar to an eczema of the areola-nipple complex, or even similar to an encrusted, flaking ulcer. It seems like a cutaneous eruption, but in reality we are dealing with a rare and insidious form of tumour. What causes the disease? Unknown, idiopathic, perhaps iatrogenous, say the doctors.
BEING OPERATED MEANS PHARMACEUTICALS BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER THE OPERATION. BEING OPERATED IS OFTEN A VIOLATION OF THE BODY, OTHER THAN THE FAILURE OF MEDICINE.
As a hygienist instructor, what message can I give a young woman who finds herself at the crossroads between being operated, and not being operated, between medical cures or hygiene type solutions? A man can’t easily put himself into a woman’s shoes. But if it was me, I would absolutely never ever allow the operation.
Surgical interventions make sense exclusively in the most serious emergencies. And I’d say the same even if I didn’t know that the hygiene fasting culture existed. Even reading the initial story signed Cloud, would be enough to make me impervious to any surgical solution.
THE ENORMOUS ADVANTAGES OF NATURAL METHODS
“Cancer (if it is really cancer we are dealing with) wherever it makes its appearance in the body, is very difficult to treat. Success depends largely on the patient. Magical solutions don’t exist, and neither are there treatments which are infallible and without serious collateral consequences.
All we know is that in terms of results, natural methods are by far superior to the interventions of surgical removal with the relative pharmaceutical and chemo-radiological therapies.
The enormous advantage lies in the fact that they don’t create collareral effects”. This is the authoritative opinion of Stan Malstrom, an American doctor and author of the famous best seller “Own Your Own Body”.
THE FUNDAMENTAL IMPORTANCE OF RAW FOOD IN ANTI-CANCER CURES
As for cures, Malstrom, perfectly in line with oncologist Max Gerson and the famous Max Bircher-Brenner (personal doctor to the Zars of Russia) proposes a drastic raw food diet, which starts with melons or grape juice for breakfast, and uses all possible kind of raw vegetables as first courses between lunch and dinner, while also inserting generous quantities of fruit mid mornigs and mid afternoons, alternated with juices made from carrots, celery, pinapple and other similar combinations (with tubers mixed with apples, pineapple and pawpaw, the only fruits which don’t ferment rapidly)
BREAT OPERATIONS AREN’T A WALK IN THE PARK
My personal opinions are contained in 2 articles called “Zone Tumour and Zone Cancer” (18-01-09) and “Lipotoxaemia and Haemoviscosity, also called Cancer” (19-01-10). However I don’t hesitate to repeat here the position and the precious experience of people like Graham, Trall, Tilden and Shelton, synthesizing a classic text called “Tumours and Cancers – Their natural disappearance by self absorption”. Breast operations are by no means simple and without risks, as surgical medicine would have us believe. They frequently have extremely serious consequences. Often the tumours return. If one breast is removed, a tumour appears in the other. Also the pain provoked by these disabilities is so intense that very soon the patients become slaves to narcotics, just to have some relief.
SYSTEMATIC LIES ABOUT RELAPSES ARE NOT LACKING
The surgeons never think about what causes tumours.
They treat the mass if it were idiopathic i.e. with no known cause, without a context or framework, without precursors and an evolutive history.
Not thousands, but tens and hundreds of thousands of signs exist that every year simple encrustions are cut out, because doctors are obsessed and see cancers everywhere, even when they don’t exist.
One encrusted breast is removed and a few months later the other becomes encrusted as well.
Doctors assure the patient that chemo-radiotherapy treatment will impede the recurrence, even though they know well that this is an illusion, or rather a farce.
PROPAGANDA AND INFORMATION ARE VERY DIFFERENT THINGS
Medical-surgical propaganda makes us believe several things that are not at all true:
1) It makes us believe that just having an inflamed lymphatic gland (in the breast or anywhere) is
enough to talk about tumours or cancer (so that the patient has no more peace till the gland is
removed, whereas mostly the inflammation is not a tumour and no operation is needed).
2) It makes us believe that, by partly or completely removing a breast, the crisis is resolved and
Everything stops there, while a few months later relapses occur either in the operated area or somewhere else.
3) It makes us believe that the operation is needed to make a person (who was probably only suffering
of an innocent cyst or a purely defensive and easily dissolvable tumour) feel better, while every
operation actually transforms itself into a veritable physical, psychological and emotional battering,
in what is always a blow for the woman and for her family.
4) It makes us believe that the operation is needed to resolve and eradicate an eventual carcinoma,
potentially and effectively cancerogenous and malignant, while if this were really the case (and often
pathologists do make mistakes) the operation can do nothing except hasten the death of the patient
(American statistics on cancer in general prove that males and females, who have undergone
operations, survive on average, for 3 years, while those who have not been operated survive for 11
LIVING IN THE FEAR AND ANXIETY OF AN ILLNESS MEANS ACTUALLY GETTING ILL
The reality is that contrary to what is predicted, taught and practised in medicine, swellings, cysts and tumours mostly disappear without any need for mammographs and medical cures. What is extremely wrong (and damaging) is living in anxiety and terror.
The swelling and the encrustation of one of the glands or the canals of the breast of a woman who is breast-feeding, the swelling and the encrustation that can appear during the mestruation of a sexually active young woman, and even the same symptoms in one who is less jaunty, should all be confronted with complete serenity, and certainly not with anxiety alarm, like on stand-by, seeing that emotional traumas are themselves factors that cause neoplasia.
LET’S LEARN TO DETOXIFY OURSELVES AND LIVE IN HARMONY WITH OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
Swelling and pain in the breasts come and go with every menstruation, according to the individual amount of toxaemia and personal sensitivity to touch, which can range from slightly to acutely painful. But it also disappears easily.
There is no such thing as healthy women and cancerous women.
There exist women who become ill because their immune system has been undermined, and women who heal themselves with the strength of their efficient immune systems.
LIPOTOXIC BLOOD AND DISBIOTIC INTESTINE: THE PRIME CAUSES OF SWOLLEN BREASTS
More than talking about Paget’s disease, with reference to a typical, standard model of pathology, it is more appropriate to talk about the serious lack of metabolic equilibrium which needs no other urgent cure than a radical modification in one’s life-style, and a correct and sober diet.
More than terrorist talk of Paget’s disease, lets think of a drastic suppression of cooking salt and supplements, chewing gum and cigarettes, commercial ice creams and cocktails, tea and coffee, colas and alcohol. More than talking about Paget, let’s impose an essential less-stressful regimen based on deep breathing, on enthusiasm and vitality, and on physical and aerobic movement.
An immediate and drastic correction in life-style means inexorabley closing all poisonous taps, thereby putting an end both to the serious toxification presently underway (poisoning of the blood) as well as to the serious disbiosis (intoxication of the intestine) which are the prime provocatory causes of swellings of breasts and nipples.
WITHOUT A HYGIENE CULTURE PEOPLE NO LONGER KNOW HOW TO DEFEND THEMSELVES
In any case it is necessary to say that doctors are partially correct in their scepticism and their thinking that self-healing is a pipe dream, and that people who do not undergo any kind of cure will not fare well. They are correct because too often people are uneducated and disorientated, and don’t know how to look after themselves. In this bullying and fraudulent society of ours, held up by multinationals who deal in meat and milk, colossuses of dead food and tinned drinks, and the giants of the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, there is no place for an uncomfortable and (for them) highly awkward culture like that of hygienism. The medical culture, on the other hand, is defending itself with swords drawn, itself having been collaborators with power and with Big Pharma for decades.
EXCESS OF CHLORINE AND SODIUM, AND SCARCITY OF ORGANIC POTASSIUM AND MAGNESIUM
Excess infatuation with ham and parmesan cheese, sweets and salty snacks, delicacies and milk products, mints and liquorice, fizzy drinks and colas, tea and coffee, alcoholic and digestive drinks.
Too much sodium and too much chlorine in our diet, which contains an over-abundance of sodium chloride (inorganic cooking salt), chlorides of magnesium and potassium (inorganic mineral supplements) with an inorganic sodium content quadrupled with respect to 50 years ago, and a dangerous reduction in the quota of organic potassium, magnesium and boron (fruit and vegetables).
THE EQUILIBRIUM OF WATER AND MINERALS
The presence of potassium is fundamental to regulating the sodium content and the equilibrium of the minerals in the cells, in the blood and in the urine; in reducing hypertension, in constipation, in cramps and muscular pains, in vomiting and diarrhoea, in allergies, in diabetes, in nephritis and thyroid problems, in auto-immune diseases and in Paget and non- Paget breast cancers. Organic potassium stimulates the bio-synthesis of aldosterone and the secretions of the suprarenal glands; it increases diuresis eliminating excess sodium, regulates the the water balance and combats water retention. Organic boron is important for reproductive health, and magnesium is fundamental to metabolic processes.
THE HUGE LIMITATIONS OF CHEMICAL CRUTCHES
The consumption of prescribed and over the counter pharmaceuticals, like aspirin, laxatives, cortisone and steroids, statins and tachipirene, antacids and anti-depressives, antibiotics and vaccines represent a lethal attack on our already reduced presence of potassium. Doctors found out about this and try to resolve it by using chemical crutches, regularly prescribing magnesium and potassium chloride. Obviously we are dealing with inorganic supplements which in the short term act as cardiac accelerators, pretending to solve the problem, whereas in the long run they fail. The chlorides cited above, are only ever inorganic salts and therfore weapons which cut both ways; thus they are poisons which cause dispepsia, burning in the stomach, heartburn, gastric and intestinal ulcers, high blood pressure, nephritis and cardio-vascular crises.
THE NON-CURE MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY RIGOROUS HYGIENISTIC CHOICES
So is it right to doubt the non-cure as doctors do? Partly yes. If the patient’s daily habits, those that are causing the swelling and the encrustation of the breast, are not corrected rapidly, and if drastic provisions are not taken to detoxify the blood and the colon (pure water fasting and complete rest followed by a completely rawfood diet and thereafter a vegan but still decidedly decidedly raw food diet) the situation will deteriorate even if you keep well away from the operating room. If the hardening and other abnormal phenomena of the breast do not disappear after the menstrual detoxification cycle, but rather tend to augment and become even more painful to the touch, doctors call it cancer without bothering too much and advise its immediate ablation.
BE STRONG. YOU HAVE A CANCER TO GET RID OF!
Telling a woman that she has cancer, little does it matter if it’s done coldly and brutally or with circling diplomatic words, means taking a hammer and hitting her on the head; it means throwing her into an abyss of fear, anxiety and depression. I means wiping her out psychologically, and transforming her into an abandoned and desperate creature. Only women who have undergone such debasement, remaining alive only thanks to their hard exterior, are able to express what they felt. Just telling a woman she has a cancer, a cercinoma, a potentially malignant and incurable tumour, means taking her to selfdestruction and an accelerated end.
GLANDS EXIST IN ORDER TO INFLAME AND DISINFLAME
However let’s get back to a common, banal case of a woman with an inflamed mammary gland, perhaps even one on a list waiting to have her breasts, the symbol of her femminility, massacred. No surgeon in the world ever asks himself a question as simple as it’s fundamental: “Why ever does she have an inflamed gland?” The fact that the patient has eaten protein (proteins, ‘noble’ only in name) rich food for years, and has also eaten beyond her own capacity to digest and assimilate, and that she has become chronically poisoned by such excesses and abuse, is of no professional interest to surgeons.
SURGEONS HAVE TO DO THEIR JOB
The fact that during every menstruation breasts become painful to touch, and that such a state has become chronic through uncaring food habits, is completly foreign to their thinking. The surgeons have in hand a report from the pathologist, while what they see is just a suspected swelling (tumefaction) to be removed. Their responsibility is that of opening, cutting, removing and sewing up again – things they know how to do perfectly. And yet revealing symptoms are not lacking.
IT IS FORBIDDEN TO MAKE WOMEN FAST, IT WOULD BE A WAR-ATTACK AGAINST MEDICINE
This woman is so choc-a-block with accumulated detritus that from her breath, and the other products she excretes, there emanates a fetid odour. But doctors normally smoke and drink coffee, due to which they no longer sniff, as good doctors used to do once upon a time. In practice, if they made such a woman go on a fast until the complete disappearance of all that stench, her glandular inflammation and her enctrustations would also disappear, and there would be no need to cut anything away. However there is a but… if a hospital doctor dared to act in this way, the hospital would dismess him completely for incorrect and anti-corporate behaviour. A surgeon’s function is to cut and sutture. And that is that.
AS LONG AS THERE IS BLOOD FLOWING, THERE IS HOPE
John Tilden, one of the classic masters of hygienism, wrote: “If the tumour has not reached such a hardened state that it impedes the blood circulation from cleansing its centre, it means that the tumour is disintegratable and self-healable”. Therefore as long as a tumour is not isolated from the blood circula-tion, and has not yet undergone a systematic decomposition, salvation is near, on condition that the patient undergoes immediate detoxification and completely changes his or her life style.
THE DESPERATION OF CACHEXIA AND METASTASIS
However when the centre of the tumour remains without metabolic liquid (of the blood which feeds and cleans it) it enters into a phase of structural decomposition. At that stage the passage of the purulent material into the rst of the organism, produces a rapid cachexia (complete general debilitation). Cachexia is desperation. When any disease reaches this state, unfortunately no hope remains. The more you cut it, the more it just grows again in different parts of the body. We are in the phase of generalized metastasis. Yet the body never goes against itself. It sends out abundant red light signals. Nature does not send out warnings uselessly. If we don’t know how to listen to them and interpret them; if we don’t love our own selves, we have only ourselves to blame.
THE GREAT MAJORITY OF BREAT TUMOURS DISAPPEAR WITH FASTING
And despite this official medicine obstinately refuses to study the original pathological conditions, those that lead to tumours and cancer. “When a breast cancer disappears by fasting, in a space of time which could comprise between 3 days to 2 weeks, and I have often seen it happen, it means that it wasn’t a cancer”, writes Herbert Shelton. The fact is that in a great majority of cases, patients are operated on when it was not necessary to do so. Innumerable people have died from wrong and useless operations. If one were to do an accurate, independent research of the statistics, a whole host of stuff would emerge.
EATING TOO MUCH PROTEIN MEANS CANCER
Cancer does not have a separate identity; it is not an independent body, but a process that evolves coherently inside the body. Eating too much protein is a typical precursor of cancer. Perverting ones own pH level and ones creative design, means putting oneself onto the road towards cancer. Statistics offer us the proof. But even animals help us to understand. For many vegan animals such as monkeys, horses, donkeys, cattle, and rabbits, cancer is a problem which is unknown, whilst cats, dogs, eagles and condors, who are avid meat eaters, are regularly harrassed by it.
WEAKENING, IRRITATING, INFLAMING AND ULCERATING MEANS TUMOURIZING
The continuous irritation of the breasts, the ovaries, the uterus, the kidneys, the liver and other organs, as a result of intense and prolonged toxaemia, is without the shadow of a doubt, a cancerogenous factor of the utmost importance.
Every incorrect choice in life, and as such something that can emotionally and biochemically alter the state of health of an individual, can contribute to the onset of the tumour forming process.
For doctors a tumour is a disease, and this already puts them off the right track. Instead, the tumour is the outcome of of a pathological process, whose starting line can go back to early childhood, or even beyond.
WE NEED PREVENTION. WE NEED 36O° HYGIENE CHOICES
Adopting easy solutions, such as surgery and chemo-radiotherapy, without taking into account all the elements which constellate the present and past life of the patient, cannot resolve the problem at all.
No last minute surgery can ever be of use.
What is needed, even more than remedies and corrective means, is prevention.
Prevention is simple and banal. It means making hygienistic choices in all directions.
ONLY THE STUPIDEST ASS CAN THINK CERTAIN THINGS
Only the most stupid ass could think that an illness is cured and gone forever when only the terminal, visible part of the disease is removed.
Removing a tumour does not mean removing the cause of the tumour.
The causes of cancer are as unknown to the doctors of today as they were to those of 50 or 500 years ago.
And then if in the middle there is also the aggravating factor of not wanting to understand the real causes, one understands how medicine continues to fumble around in the dark.
DETOXIFYING ONESELF BY MEANS OF FEVERS AND INFLUENZA, THIS IS SALVATION
Every bad mental and physical habit reduces the reserves of nervous energy, bringing about a slowdown of the eliminative functions, and therefore the pathological accumulation and retention of the cellular residues of the organism, which accompanying toxaemia, acidification and increased viscosity and lipo-toxicity of the blood. When this toxaemia goes beyond the limits of tolerance, it produces a crisis in the organism, a fever or influenza. At this point the body coming to a halt is heaven-sent, and it is needed to mobilize all the physical energies to eliminate the excess garbage. But people, badly advised by their doctors, combat illnesses and refuse to accept this process of detoxification.
DIFFICULT DIGESTION PRODUCES TOXIC BLOOD AND CONSTIPATED INTESTINE
At this point we have a process of obvious organic weaknes and enervation (process 1). As long as the causes of toxaemia are not eliminated, one crisis succeeds another until from being acute, the symptoms become chronic. Now in the organism, the process of irritation takes over (process 2). Irritation builds on top of irritation and the tissues become inflamed (process 3) which, in the great majority of acute diseases, gives rise to so-called “itis” (gastritis, colitis, tonsilitis, vasculitis, otitis, etc.).
FROM INFLAMMATIONS TO THE TUMOUR
Continuing with the inflammations, uselessly taking anti-inflammatory medicines rather than changing track and life-style, inevitably one arrives at a perforation of the inflamed tissues, in other words a process of ulceration (process 4). At this point the immune system does everything it can to repair things, and to patch things up with a process of hardening (process 5), where more layers of skin are made to cover the ulcerous tear. However as the perversion and the heating up of the surrounding tissue continues around the hardened epithelial layers, a swelling starts, the creation of a tumour capable of collecting the excess toxicity (process 6) and, from ignoring the tumour to cancerization (process 7) can easily be a brief step.
OCCLUSION OF BLOOD VESSELS
Cancer is a pathological state also characterized by the gradual restriction of blood vessels, a phenomenon which can end with the complete occlusion of the vessels in the area, causing cellular asphyxia, a general decline in health and metastasis. A neoplasma which starts to grow in the breast, and degenerates into the horrible putrescent mass called cancer, has, as we’ve seen, its origin in something very banal called difficult digestion, together with a state of lipotoxaemia of the blood. When a tumour has a thick, resistent encapsulation, its content tends to reach such a density that the capillaries and the little arteries end up being completely obstructed. At this point he tumour finds itself cut off from the rest of the blood circulation, and ends up failing as a reparative neoformation, and dies asphyxiated.
SEPTIC POISONING OF THE BLOOD
The nucleus of the tumour, no longer fed and cleansed by the blood, stops growing and starts decomposing and producing pus. This brings about blood poisoning, a chronic septicemia which causes a complete general decline in health.
When the process described above, happens in any tumour, it deserves to be called cancer. But medicine now defines even a simple, innocent verruca, as cancer
The transformation of an innocent, benign and reversable tumour into a malignant tunour, starts with the obstruction of the blood circulation and the resulting celular asphyxiation. The hardening of the lymphatic glands around the tumour, constitutes the first sign of the malignant evolution. “That cancer is mortal and terminal, is not particularly strange or incomprehensible”, writes Tilden. “Cancer is nothing other than sepsis, the mortally virulent product of the putrefaction of the tissues that one finds in infected wounds and in appendicitis which is not properly attended to”.
MAX GERSON’S MIRACLES
In general it is legitimate to say that when a benign tumour becomes malignant or cancerous, healing is impossible, even though in certain extreme cases Dr. Max Gerson managed to recuperate terminal cancer patients with 100% fruit diets. All the palliatives, all the medicines, all the operations, the chemo-therapy and other types of medical cure concocted round about these patients, are to be considered cruel and inhuman, in other words authentic cases of therapeutic cruelty.
EVERYTHING IS CANCER, EVERYTHING IS SUSCEPTIBLE TO BECOMING CANCER
The tendency of modern medicine is not at all to distinguish between cancers, but rather to kind of flatten them out and consider them all to be malignant. It’s well known that in America, the world leader in health tendencies, they don’t use terms like, tumefaction, cyst and swelling, but call everything by the unified name, cancer, or by the term ‘neoformations’ susceptible to transform themselves into cancer. And we’re not talking about terminological trivialities. Calling anything cancer, means simply giving oneself a sanitary alibi to remove and destroy tumours on the basis of a simple suspicion.
THE HEROD MENTALITY
The medical mentality is like the Herod mentality. Not knowing for sure which tumours are malignant and which are benign, destroy them all, in the hope that amongst them we find that at least 5% were actually malignant. And for this reason these terrorist campaigns in favour of mammographies, and monthly controls to immediately discover some abnormal state, exist. Immediate discovery, for the doctors, certainly does not mean changing the diet and other good advice, but only immediate operations, immediate cauterizations and immediate chemotherapy.
OPERATIONS SHORTEN OUR LIFE SPAN
These terroristic campaigns cause a growing number of women to undergo operations without there being the least necessity, except precisely that of removing a breast as an aberrant act of anticipated prudence (as for example the case in the article “Spine-chilling, preventative breast removal” of 26-02-2011). If they want to fill hospitals with desperate women, and if they want to give more work to under-takers, this is the reality of the facts. “For at least 50 years surgeons have known that operations shorten lives, and that whoever does not undergo any treatment, lives four times longer” concludes Shelton.
TUMOURAL GROWTHS ARE THE FIRST TO DISINTEGRATE
Dr. Russell Thacker Trall emphasises that all abnormal growths possess a vitality that is inferior to that of normal body tissues, and therefore they are more easy to destroy.
Tumoural growths are not furnished with reserves of blood and nerves. This lack of suppport makes them vulnerable to the body’s autolytic and detoxification processes, and they can be disintegrated through total physiological rest, with hygenistic fasting and rigid alimentary confinement to air and water, or to sun, air and water, if the climate permits.
GETTING RID OF TUMOURS, CYSTS AND SWELLINGS THROUGH FASTING
The autolytic process is of great practical use for getting rid of tumours, cysts and swellings. Tumours are made of flesh, blood and sometimes even bone. An osteoma is constituted of bone tissue, a mioma of muscular tissue, a neuroma of nervous tissue, a fibroma of fibrous tissue, and a lipoma of fatty tissue. Phenomena of this kind are technically called neoplasmas (new growths) to distinguish them from simple inflammations, hypertrophies or from tumefactions.
INFLAMED GLANDS ONLY MEANS AN EXCESS OF TOXINS IN THE BODY
A large mass in the breast can derive from a simple swelling of the lymphatic mammary glands. Such an alteration, even though sometimes it is very irritating and painful, can very well have nothing to do with a neoplasma. Glands are instruments of the immune system, and are constructed precisely to swell up when an intoxicating process exists.
REDUCTION AND TOTAL DISAPPEARANCE OF TUMOUTAL GROWTHS
Being constituted of tissues, tumours are subjected to autolytic disintegration like most normal tissues.
As fasting reduces the quantity of body fat and the volume of inflated muscles, so it is also able to reduce the dimensions of a tumour, or to bring about its total and definative disappearance. There is nothing that changes the metabolism as profoundly as a fast. The rapidity of the disintegration and re-absorption of tumours, varies according to known and unknown factors, which constitute the general state of the patient: the age, the amount of internal toxicity, the hardness of the tumour and its location. Swollen breasts, resembling tumours, have dimensions which vary from that of a pea to that of a goose’s egg, and they regularly disintegrate in a short time that varies from 3 days to 3 weeks.
A BILLIARD BALL DISINTEGRATED IN A THREE DAY FAST
A noteworthy and instructive case amongst many that are quoted, is that of a young, 21 year old American girl with a hard swelling the size of a billiard ball, in the right breast. First she consulted one doctor, then a second one, then a third and a fourth. All four were in complete agreement about the diagnosis of cancer and about the immediate removal operation. The girl also wanted to hear Shelton’s opinion. This healthy and reactive young woman fasted, breathed deeply, and rested completely drinking only water. After just 3 days the “cancer” and all the pain disappeared into thin air. 23 years after the episode, the same woman went and embraced Dr. Shelton, still as healthy as a fish, and without any relapse.
TOO OFTEN THE CANCERS THAT ARE REMOVED ARE NEITHER TUMOURS NOR CANCERS
“Thousands of similar cases have convinced me that many of the tumours and cancers that doctors remove, are neither tumours nor cancers. Not all of them disappear. Warts in general do, but moles don’t.
A difficult tumour can require two or three fasting sessions before it is autolysed completely” concludes Shelton. American hygienistic clinics however don’t accept patients with tumours that have metastased. In these cases, fasting abbreviates the intensity of suffering but shortens also their life.
IF IT’S INCAPABLE OF METASTASING, IT’S NOT CANCER
Dr. Giuseppe Nacci, in his text “Become Your Own Doctor”, quotes an incredible testimony of a New York doctor called Irvin Brass (from the volume “Cancer: if you want life, prepare for the truth” by Phillip Day). When a pathologist diagnoses a lesion like an “initial stage breast cancer”, in 50% or more cases he makes a clamorous error, in that it isn’t at all a breast tumour, even though through a microscope it resembles a tumour and cancer. Enormous possibilities exist that such a tumour does not have the capacity to form metastases, typical of cancer true and proper.
THE DEEP GULF THAT SEPARATES MEDICINE AND NATURAL HYGIENE
It is not easy to be an oncologist, nor is it easy to be a surgeon. But it is even less easy to put oneself on the waiting list for an intervention in the operating theatre. This article isn’t meant to demonize anyone, notwithstanding how hard and polemical its position appears to be. I have tried to synthesize the position of natural hygiene on these very delicate arguments, not to accentuate the gulf that divides the medical and the hygienistic positions, but to objectively highlight some of their aspects and try to form some composition, in the interests of both medicine, as well as patients. What is fundamental in every case, is prevention, the life-saving choices that we make on a daily basis.
THIS IS ONLY A PRESENTATION OF HYGIENISM
The option of fasting definitely represents an extreme, revolutionary and almost implacable alternative to actual medical cures. Introducing the concept of no scalpels and no pharmaceuticals into a hospital complex, would, for too many people and too many interests, be comparable to allowing a horned devil into the sacristy. However on the other hand someone who has to decide whether to go for an operation or not, has the right to do so with the greatest possible liberty, and with the full consciousness and knowledge of the various prospectives that are available, without anxiety and without being pressurised psychologically in any way, they alone should freely take all responsability.
The writer is not a doctor and is not a healer. He only works as a free and independent popularizer of natural hygiene.
