If You Know Anyone Who Has Cancer Please Read And Pass On

Posted in Health on September 24th, 2012 by Sandy – Be the first to comment

There are jillions of articles promising some new or better way to do something usually attached to a product or service. I have survived cancer and when this came across my e-mail it said read and pass along. It is written by a doctor who has cancer for the third time. It will be worth your time.

Subject: Shocking Cancer Information…worth reading…
Written by a doctor who suffers from cancer and he uses alternative rather than conventional medicine that involves chemo, etc.

Good to share with family and friends.

Cancer treatment is about making money… - provoking thoughts
I posted this article, which may have some provoking thoughts:

The below is absolutely 100% true and as a doctor I have been telling people this for 15 years now.  No one wants to listen. Folks need to wake up.  Cancer treatment is about making money.  It is a 120 billion dollar a year industry in the United States alone and estimated to be a 600 billion dollar a year industry worldwide.

A successful cancer case according to the American Cancer Society and the American College of Oncology and Hematology means that the person survives for 5 years.  Both the American Cancer Society and the American College of Oncology and Hematology admit that a person is likely to survive cancer for 7 to 10 years even if they do absolutely NOTHING.  Of course, only the doctors get those magazines – not you, the cancer patient.

Alternative medicine’s track record of curing cancer is 10 times higher than that of conventional medicine.  Note that I say CURE.

Remember another thing.  A TUMOR is just a symptom.  It is not the cause of cancer.

Science is cause and effect.  Remove the cause and the effect disappears.

I am in my third battle with cancer right now.  I have not done any chemotherapy or radiation or surgery for any of my bouts with cancer.  I survived leukemia, I survived Non Hodgkins Lymphoma and now I have Glioblastoma which is supposedly an incurable form of brain cancer.  I was given two months to live 5 months ago. read more »

Another Way To Think About The Value of Art

Posted in Discoveries, Health, Thinking Patterns, travel on September 4th, 2012 by Sandy – Be the first to comment

I have just returned from Seattle where I spent a couple of hours in the mind blowing exhibits of Dale Chihuly, the artist who has redefined what is possible in the medium of glass. The permanent exhibition of the Garden and Glass museum is stunning.  As I wandered through it I thought about how inspirational it is to see the “best.” While art, music, and the performing arts often seemed to be scrapped as the economy falters, the one unknown is what kind of impression good art makes in helping our own creativity blossom, and of course the payoffs for that.

Poking my head in the theatre complex I caught the part of the film talking about how a Chihuly exhibit in Jerusalem had attracted over a million Israelis and Palestinians. For what ever their differences the power of the art seemed seemed to set aside those differences for a higher calling.

I remember being in a seminar with Terence Mckenna once in which he was paraphrasing Plato’s observations that truth, beauty and goodness were one in the same.  From Terence’s point of view,  truth and beauty were difficult to determine, but beauty seemed to be apparent . So perhaps art at some cellular level connects with archetypal patterns that are part of  our deeper wisdom.  Sure seems like we could use that today.

I certainly felt better for having been immersed in this display.
