Very well said my friend. There are too
many people out there that would gladly accept your hard earned money on a
product the would produce no results. I think I am one of the knuckleheads
that bought into some of the miracle drug stuff. Have you ever heard of
Noni Juice? It had alot of rave reviews on it but I myself have not seen
any changes since I started taking it. $50.00 a bottle - one month
supply. When you think of what you pay for other medications this is just
a drop in the bucket except for the fact if it is just a placebo.
Also, I would be much appreciative if you could send me the
info on the SRS or Missile Therapy for brain cancer.
I am late in reponding to your response because my computer
was in the shop for a few days.
I believe that some alternative therapies
are beneficial to our desease and work well with traditional
therapies. However; before I would enter any program, or use an
alternative therapy, I would walk in the wind of caution.
The MD. Anderson site show's the trials and
results to alternative therapies and also list some 10 other hospitals that
are doing alternative therapy trials. There is also the Dr. Quack site
that has some opinions on various alternative therapies and they are not all
negative. Infact it gives quite a bit of very valuable
Yes, the arugment lends that if some
one believes it will cure them, then so be it; but I would stand on the side
that would say "why not an alternative that helps, it is just as easy
to believe in?" As a two time cancer survivor and not as young as
I used to be, I have seen many fad alternatives come and go.
There is mega money to be made in
alternative as there is in traditional therapies. We can not permit
ourselves to be nieve, we must educate ourselves and not count on others to
do it for us. We must also realize that what works for one, may well
not work for another.
I agree that when we are put into a
situation where our lives or our love one's life is in danger, that we tend
to grasp at straws. To try anything to make this all work out to our
wills, we are desperate; this is understandable. However; I beg you to
educate yourselves before going into anything blindly. I ask each and
every person on this journey to do this and in doing so, I ask you out of
love as a fellow cancer friend. lillian
