Getting It Right
Knowing the Truth Can Change Your Mindset and Set You Free
My Guiding Light
This is book is NOT about criticising medicine. Medicine has indeed helped mankind in many ways in the past and it is going to do the same in the future. But medicine does has its limit – particularly so in handling chronic diseases.
This book is about truth. It provides facts as I know them – documented in established medical journals and books by medical experts themselves. In writing this book, I would like to be as fair and objective as possible. I have read, researched and observed cancer patients for a decade now. I need not have to offer my own opinions at all. I have read widely and what I need to say or see happening, have all been written by medical experts themselves. Hence, this is a book of quotations based on my reading of medical journals and books. Take for example the advice by John Lee et al. found in their book that is available from the local bookstore: What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Breast Cancer. The authors wrote:
· Some chemotherapy does prolong life for a few months, but generally at the high price of devastating side effects. The use of chemotherapy is purely a gamble, and we don’t think it’s worth taking. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t and sometimes it makes things worse. Chemotherapy is an attempt to poison the body just short of death in the hope of killing the cancer before the entire body is killed. Most of the time it doesn’t work.
Dr. Jeffrey Tobias is a cancer specialist at University College, London. He trained in Cambridge, U.K. as well as the Harvard Medical School, USA. In his book, Living with Cancer, Tobias wrote:
· There is no use pretending that brain tumours are truly curable.
Dr. Tobias should know better. It appears that when it comes to brain cancer, undergoing surgery gives almost always the same sad story of recurrence.
