I "think" certain cancer patients have to take medicine that makes them feel nausea. Hopefully, there will be improvements in the medicine.

And how the physical body has to adjust to the medicine and disease. -(in the phases of cancer treatment)-

The cannabinoid will transform the way we treat cancer.
That and the implementation of certain practices.

The problem with cancer is that it is essentially you. These rebel cells no longer take direction from your body. Unlike most other forms of disease what is deadly to cancer is almost equally as deadly to you.

McMaster released some findings this week that the anti psychotic drug thioridazine killed cancer stem cells. It has been used since 1959 to treat schizophrenia. In Tantric medicine both mental afflictions and cancer can be caused by malevolent entities. It can also kill the naga diseases tuberculosis and MRSA. I took some sulfa based meds this winter and was very impressed with their similarity to alchemical medicines I took from India years ago. Thioridazine is another sulfa based compound.

Cancer rates will start to go down when we start focusing on prevention and causes ( chemicals in our food for instance ) instead on spending billions on developing machines to treat a disease once it has already become deadly (of course they are also useful but should not be the only recipient of funding ).

The new cancer treatments that have become available over the past several years have not lived up to expectations. Which is disappointing, because they are less toxic than traditional chemotherapy. The sticking point seems to be cancer cells' ability to adapt and develop immunity to treatment. I don't know anything in the pipeline that looks more promising. The best treatment is prevention, lead a healthy and sane lifestyle and where possible avoid the poisons the chemical industry pours into the environment. If you do get cancer, please see a trained naturopath for supportive care along with a conventional doctor.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if there was some new treatment for cancer, one that doesn't actually hurt and harm us while healing us.

You are right in that cancer has the uncanny ability to mutate and form immunity to certain drugs. In addition and what I find hardest to deal with is that the medication that is available to cancer patients almost kills you while killing the cancer cells. In many cases it is the medication that makes one so ill. The cancer itself, while causing pain and other symtoms is not necessarily the thing that makes you feel so ill, which is why many people have cancer long before it is diagnosed as it doesn't necessarily make them feel so desperately ill. However, once you start the treatment you feel sicker and more desperate than you have ever felt before.

The chemo (be in IV or oral or radiation) makes you develop mouth sores, suffer from nausea, destroys lining in your stomach, destroys healthy cells, and many other side effects ( hair loss, depression to name a few) which then means one has to take more medication to help those symptoms - they cycle seems never ending.

Yes, prevention is always better than cure, but sadly that is too late for some.

I pray for an improved medication in the future and, for now, I pray that those who suffer all the indignities that go with this type of illness, strength to fight it, the courage to face another day, another treatment, and the peace to go through it all without losing themselves and their sense of humour.

There have been breakthroughs, but there media attention depends on multiple factors, including profitability.

Alberta university recently discovered last year Dichloroacetic acid possible curing several forms of cancer, a pretty cheap cure.

Cannabis and Cannabis Oil particularly are becoming more popular in treatment for cancer, canniboids aid in inhibiting cell growth, inducing cell death, and inhibiting tumor metastasis.
