There are many instances where people have survived in spite of having been diagnosed with fatal cancers. The reasons behind this are many. Many people are trying alternative treatments for combating cancer. The radiation and chemotherapy which is the usual treatment routine for cancer patients is emotionally and physically draining.

Most of the alternative treatments available are based on the fact that cancer is a physical symptom of imbalance in emotional, spiritual, mental and physical well being. Bringing all these back into balance would treat the cancer affecting you.

1-The first step is to heal emotions and eliminate stress. Emotional stress leads to increased production of adrenalin which culminates in high blood sugar, low levels of oxygen therefore fermentation and mutation of cells leading to cancer. Hence healing these negative emotions is critical for treatment. The usual modes adopted are hypnotherapy, counseling etc.

2-The next step is avoiding stress. Any kind of stress will enhance the cancer cells and thus have to be avoided. Jobs can be changed; residence can be shifted etc with the aim of keeping stress at bay.

3-Reducing stress calms the autonomous nervous system and hence the cortisol levels in the body decrease. Yoga, aromatherapy, meditation, relaxation techniques help in this. Laughter therapy is very commonly used for this purpose. Laughter lowers blood pressure, and boosts immune system which kills the cancer cells.

4-Melatonin levels have to be increased since this is responsible for inhibiting cancer cell growth and the regulation of the immune system. Daily sessions of meditation have increased melatonin levels for the desired affect.

5-Many natural products are seen to possess immune system boosting properties. Recovery from cancer should support the immune system and its components. Wheat germ extract has been found to be very effective in this regard.

6-The body has to be cleansed of viruses, bacteria and fungi. These organisms are responsible for causing disruptions in the Krebs cycle leading to cell mutation and cancer. The parasites have to be de-wormed from the body.

7-Toxins like mycotoxins, chemicals, alcohol, antibiotics etc have to be thrown out of the body. The detoxification has to extend to other organs like gall bladder, colon and the kidneys.

8-The body pH has to be re-alkanized. Smoking, alcohol consumption should be stopped. A healthy diet rich in anti oxidants to be followed. The diet should be rich in anti cancer foods which aid in getting the body rid of cancerous cells. Cancer cells cannot survive in alkaline environment.

9-The inner belief that cancer can be cured has to take deep roots. This confidence in the system would aid in treatment by enhancing progress.

10-Believing that God would help is very calming to the mind and body. Faith in God is proven to increase confidence levels and bring about good health and mental well being.

11-While preparing to start alternative treatment it is better to be prepared for change in a big way like, diet, system, routine etc. The flexibility would make healing faster.
