"Most cancer patients in this country die of chemotherapy. It does not eliminate breast, colon or lung cancer. This fact has been known for over a decade. Women with breast cancer are likely to die faster with chemotherapy than without it." Dr. Lana Levi
"The American public is being sold a nasty bill of goods about cancer. While they're being told about cancer cures, the cure rate has not improved even 1%." Dr. James Watson, co-discover of DNA.
"The cause of cancer is unknown. A drug to cure cancer is unknown. In spite of all the efforts of researchers, in spite of all the doctors, surgeons, and hospitals, it may be said that we are still totally in the dark about cancer. ...The cancer industry is blissfully content pursuing blind alleys in cancer research and is fixated on mutilating surgery, burning radiation, and poisonous chemicals as would-be cures. The sad fact is that most of these 'cures' leave the patient in worse shape than the disease." K.A. Laska, M.D.
"After analyzing cancer survival statistics for several decades, Dr. Hardin Jones, a professor at the University of California, concluded...'patients are as well, or better off, untreated.' Jones' disturbing assessment has never been refuted." Walter Last, M.D.
"Breast cancer has no known cause or prevention. It is usually charaterized as a lump or thickening in the breast. A cancerous lump is called malignant." American Cancer Society It just happens!? If they don't know what causes it, how do they know how to treat it--that surgery or a toxic chemical is necessary to cure it? Something has to be causing it.
"A quack is one who leads his patients to believe he has medical resources which, in fact, he does not possess; who fosters in them all sorts of superstition (about drugs)... If 90% of our patients would recover anyhow without any medication or in spite of our improper treatments, are we not quacks to the extend of 90%?" Richard Cabot, M.D., who discovered at the autopsy department of Massachusetts General Hospital that 49% of the diagnoses were incorrect.
The cause of cancer is still unknown. It is an epidemic in which the medical community doesn't know the cause, the cure, nor how to stop it. One in three people get cancer. Each year 154,000 Canadians get cancer and nearly half die from it. 38% of women will develop cancer in their lifetimes and 44% of men. One out of three Americans have cancer, and one out of five will die of it. None of the prevailing therapies have impacted significantly on long-term cancer survival rates. Perhaps it is time to take a novel approach to healing cancer?
Imagine the energy required to continually repress emotional, physical or psychological pain. Ryke Hamer, a German physician, believes the true cause of all diseases, including cancer, is an unanticipated shock trauma which the person cannot deal with emotionally. This "Shock-Conflict" triggers the body to turn on a specific emergency program, which we call disease, for a biological threat. Dr. Hamer asserts that cancer is not cured by drugs, natural foods, cleanses, traditional psychiatry (utilizing tranquilizers), or a healthy lifestyle. The ill person needs to turn off the shock-conflict. In every single case of lung cancer he finds the shock-conflict is a fear of dying or suffocation; arthritis-- a brutal separation; testes & ovaries-- loss conflict; osteoporosis-- inferiority; melanoma-- feeling defiled; colon-- ugly incident, and so on. Dr. Hamer can examine a CT scan of the brain, note the lesions imprinted on it from the trauma, identify where in the body the cancer is located (the track from the traumatic event to the brain which is passed onto a particular organ) and the basic emotional cause of it. The emotional conflict can be resolved through counseling, rest and relaxation, and a product or treatment one really believes will work. What is the shock-conflict behind your ailment?
Author Norman Cousins observed, "Indiscriminate and extensive use of medication is making psychological cripples and chronic ailers out of millions of people. The unremitting barrage of advertising for pain-killing drugs-- in print, on radio, on TV, and conversation-- has set the stage for mass anxiety neurosis. ... Is it ethical or wise for a doctor to nourish the patientís mystical belief in drugs?" Americans consume over 25 million pounds of aspirin a year.
Pain tells us: When there is disorder or a harmful force in the body.
That a Shock Conflict needs to be resolved.
When we are tired and need to rest.
When there is underlying emotional pain.
That we need a change.
When we are angry, resistant, or self-punishing
When we are tense and overly stressing the brain
"Unrelieved stress is the cause of all disease." Dr. Hans Seyle
disSTRESS is mental or physical tension, pressure or strain. It is a response to a mentally or emotionally upsetting, or adverse external condition which is characterized by an increase in heart rate, blood pressure, muscular tension, irritability and depression= SHOCK. Dr. Hans Seyle, the father of stress research, defined stress as, "The non-specific response of the body to any demand made upon it." He also said that, "Without stress, there would be no life." Whether stress is good or bad is determined by how we handle it. Starting a new job that excites us is "good stress." Beginning a new day in prison would be "bad stress." Jogging physically stresses the body of a fit person and a slow, short walk may stress an unfit person. The athlete thrives on it but it may cause a heart attack in the weaker person. One survey revealed that many police officers find filling out paperwork more stressful than dealing with criminals on the street.
Why has the World Health Organization declared stress to be a "World Wide Epidemic" and United Nations to proclaim job stress "The 20th Century Disease"? Appleton's American Year Book states, "Disease is much more prevalent at the present time than ever before in the history of the world." The greatest health problem today may be the strain of the modern world. Our prisons and mental institutions are over flowing. One out of ten people have serious mental problems. Americans spend $50 billion a year on alcohol and tobacco, and $10 billion on tranquilizers.
What is creating this prolonged, chronic, unrelieved stress causing us to be continually focused outward, ever ready to defend or survive? Isolation, violence, crime, fast food, pollution, corruption, entertainment madness, congested traffic, terrorism, disease, drug culture, crushing debt, unfettered spending, deadlines, technology crazed, financial insecurity, daycare, and immediate gratification are symptoms of our inner stress. It is our reaction to the environment. It is internal because stress ultimately depends on how we interpret external events. The fact that we react differently to situations show that stress is derived from within us.
The primary cause of stress is a disconnection between the mind and the heart (the left and right brain); that is, thinking and feeling. As a result, many people have become unconscious and are operating on autopilot. It almost feels as if we are becoming zombies.††This is why Sara Paddison, in her book, The Hidden Power of the Heart, wrote that "Your DNA structure is designed so the choice to function in love is the only choice that brings you fulfillment. Stress is inner biofeedback, signaling you that frequencies are fighting within your system. The purpose of stress isn't to hurt you, but to let you know it's time to go back to the heart and start loving." It also alerts you to the amount of compatibility in your life (see below).
Health Psychology published a study involving 774 men that showed that hostility and pessimism were harder on our hearts than drinking, smoking, and obesity!
From the novel Dr. Zhivago by Boris Pasternak:
"Your health is bound to be affected, if, day after day, you say the opposite of what you feel, if you grovel before what you dislike and rejoice at what brings you nothing but misfortune. Our nervous system isnít just a fiction; itís a part of our physical body, and our soul exists in space, and is inside us, like the teeth in our mouth. It canít be forever violated without impunity... when you told us how you were re-educated and became mature in jail, it was like listening to a horse describing how it broke itself in." Are we broken-in spirit and emotional beings?
"Positive thinking" is ineffective without feeling-- expressing the creative, intuitive, and joyful part of ourselves. Of course, it is great to think positively, but you also must factor in the collective consciousness in which you're operating. A Buddhist monk may not have much success gathering followers in Mormon Church.
"If drugs cure disease, why does anyone die except of old age?" Charles Ketching, M.D
"Man is the only species that ingests medicines, a proclivity that seems to grow each year. William Osler, M.D.
"Suppression of disease, by masking symptoms with powerful drugs, is not a cure but only a delayed aggravation of the same malady or a worse malady." Samuel Hahnermann, M.D.
"Believe it or not, our health problems are not being caused by some drug deficiency. Drugs mask the symptoms of a problem, but 99 times out of 100, they will cause other problems wither immediately or further down he road." David Williams, M.D. E.g., is a normal blood pressure an absence of medication?
"The patient who takes medicine must recover twice; once form the disease and once from the medicine. The only drugs that are worth an oyster-sucker's oath, are those that smell good, taste good, and are harmless." William Osler, MD
"Drugs never cure disease. They merely hush the voice of Nature's protest, and pull down the danger signals she erects along the pathway of transgression. Any poison taken into the system has to be reckoned with later on even though it palliates present symptoms. Pain may disappear but the patient is left in a worse condition, though unconscious of it at the time." Daniel Kress, M.D.
When we are separated from our Spiritual selves, and our hearts, we move down to our lower level of brain function. The three levels of the brain (neo-cortex/ human, limbic/Mammalian, and Brain Stem/Reptilian) become desynchronized and dysfunctional. Then we are locked into the brain stem (Locus Coeruleus) and into survival mode where we are primarily dealing with the four Fs: feeding, fornicating, fight or flight.
When the brain is stressed, we focalize in our dominant hemisphere. The side of the overly passive brain becomes tense. The other side becomes weak from the dominant, overly active brain. The body twists and pulls one hip higher than the other causing the spine to become misaligned and the leg shortens. A half inch hip imbalance can create 3-9 spinal stress areas which pinch off vital nerve passages, affecting organs.
L-Brain dominance= high left shoulder. High right hip and shorter leg.
R-Brain dominance= high Right shoulder. High left hip and shorter leg.

Future Shock is the shattering stress and disorientation that we induce in individuals by subjecting them to too much change in too short of a time." (Alvin Toffler)
The soul of our fragile planet is dying because people have nothing much to believe in. Materialism bought sadness and debt. Fundamentalism bought ware and nastiness." Stuart Wilde
The American Stress Institute has labeled stress as the number one health problem in the U.S. According to the Harvard Business Review, an estimated 75-90% of all visits to primary care physicians are the result of illnesses due to stress.
Are You In Shock?
The body responds to shock through the Autonomic Nervous System located in the Brain Stem. When we are subjected to trauma, which can be generated by something as simple as being yelled at, taking a test, bad news, a frightening movie, or personal rejection to severe injury, danger, or an accident, the Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS) switches on and we enter into a state of "fight or flight" because we must act! The heart rate quickens, blood pressure goes up, breathing becomes rapid, pupils dilate and sweating increases. Fat, cholesterol and sugar are dumped into the bloodstream. It takes very little stress to impede fat digestion, which may be why so many Americans are overweight.
There are three responses to trauma: fight, flee, or freeze. The degree of shock felt depends on the survivorís interpretation of the trauma. What is traumatic to some, such as giving a speech or a dental visit, is not disturbing to others. You may have a high tolerance to stress and feel stable, but then you must deal with the collective shock of society. Many Americans havenít recovered from the World Trade Center tragedy and citizens are imperiled by an undefined and never-ending "war on terrorism." This is on top of America's colossal violent crime rate. Perhaps even more frightening to Americans is occupational insecurity. The day before the Twin Towers collapsed, a report stated that "More than one million Americans lost their jobs this year, 83% higher than last year's total."
A 1990 government report found that U.S. employees put in more work hours than those of any other industrialized nation with an average of 47 hours a week and 20% working 49 hours a week. 40% of job turnover is due to stress and another 40% feel that job stress more adversely affects their health than financial or family problems (Bureau of National Affairs). One survey of 300 companies found that absenteeism due to illness amongst employees had tripled in 4 years, and 60% of these absences were caused by job stress. The average depressed worker costs their employer $3,000 per year (Journal of Clinical Psychiatry). "At least 45% of American managers suffer too much stress and are becoming abusive, intolerant, and dictatorial (Business Week). This may help to explain why many workers describe their office environment as "most like a real life survivor program." 60-80% of accidents on the job are stress related (Medical World News). The total health and productivity cost of worker stress to American business is estimated at $50-150 billion a year (American Psychologist).
Staying in the SNS is extremely exhausting, so when the danger has passed, the car accident is over, the bill collector gone, or the punishment has ceased, the Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS) of rest and relaxation is activated to restore equilibrium. The heart rate slows, breathing is deeper and relaxed, pupils constrict and the blood pressure lowers. The Sympathetic speeds up and the Parasympathetic calms down.
The symptoms of a prolonged SNS state include: feeling cold, aggressive, tense, blaming others, hyperactive, flighty, or extroversion. When walking down a dark alley at night and hearing footsteps behind us, we might become hypervigilant, muscles tense, dissociate (leave the body), or freeze (helplessness), suddenly flee, or choose to fight. PNS symptoms are feeling hot, passive, relaxed, blaming one-self, melancholy, guarded, or introverted. Bouncing between the two systems may cause mania on the SNS side and depression on the PNS, resulting in a "bipolar" condition. Some people who have experienced trauma in their childhood become EXPRESSERS (SNS) of their emotional pain. These criminals or abusers re-enact their emotional injuries on others. The REPRESSORS (PNS) tend to suppress and recreate the emotional trauma they suffered by allowing others to abuse them. Both of these groups are struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), wherein they are continuously compelled to locate and identify the source of a threat by constantly looking for the enemy (a soldier, parent, rapist, thief, critic, etc.) They unconsciously prefer to re-enact a painful situation, because going inside of themselves to discharge the energy of fear is even more threatening. Chronic depression occurs when a person becomes locked into PNS shock. It is the most common mental illness in Western society and accounts for most of long-term workers' disability.
Cravings and Addictions
If the threat of punishment, the fear of another car accident, of being robbed, rejected, or failing, continues, we may become addicted to a habit or substance to help relieve our system from the effects of trauma by decreasing the pain through feeling pleasure. The SNS fast addictions ("distractions") of stimulants, sugar, shopping, speeding, gambling, video games, caffeine, rage, excessive work or overexercizing, may give us a shaky sense of power, but they often escalate and end up controlling the addict. The PNS slow distractions of depressants, TV, pain, tobacco, alcohol, marijuana, overeating, compulsions, daydreaming or lengthy meditation, also aid in repressing or disrupting the flow of difficult emotions.

DRUGS can help to calm us, but getting a quick fix with them doesnít teach us about our emotions and doesnít empower us in a positive way. In the U.S. there are over 200,000 over-the-counter drugs; 2.4 billion prescriptions written in a year (averages 13 per patients a year); the average family has 29 different drugs in their medicine cabinet. Medical research always supports drug usage. Is promoting drug use a science or a trade? Often the side effect becomes the illness. "A drug without side effect is not a drug at all." Eli Lilly drug company. 102 out of 198 drugs approved by the FDA between 1978 and 1986 had "serious post-approval risks such as heart failure, convulsions, kidney and liver failure, birth defects and blindness" (as reported by the General Accounting Office). Canadians spend over $15 billion on drugs each year which is %15 of the total spent on health care. Drugs only treat symptoms and not the causes, and all drugs have adverse side effects, which means they produce other problems than the ones they were supposed to cure.
Gravitational Stress-imbalance Factor
Weíve been told that we only use 10% of our brain. Noble Prize recipient, Dr. Roger Sperry discovered, "Better than 90% of the energy output of the brain is used in relating the physical body in its gravitational field. The more mechanically distorted a person is, the less energy available for thinking, metabolism, and healing." The more we're out of alignment, the more energy we exhaust on fighting gravity. When car wheels are unbalanced and the steering out of alignment, the tires erode a lot faster which may result in a blowout! Our bodies are the same way.
While in a state of chronic stress (shock), when your brain, and hence, your body is out of alignment........
It doesnít matter............ if you exercise........... How you meditate........... What you take or eat .............
What you do............ If the chakras are centered............. How you think.............. Even how you feel
The fuel used, type or condition of your car wonít make much difference in the speed or smoothness of your journey if the road is crooked and coarse. If you are out of balance, very tense and weak, you are overly stressed and separated from your Source. The more stress (emotional, mental, chemical, physical) you are under, the greater the forces of imbalance are, the stronger the need is for a remedy, and the greater the muscular adjustment needed. Feeling good or fit does not mean you are healthy. In fact, symptoms generally appear after a disease as been progressing for years, which explains why someone can suddenly develop heart problems or cancer. The more we're out of alignment, the stressed and unhealthier we are.
Most people gravely underestimate the consequences of "unrelieved stress" and the extent has affected them. Nearly one-half of Americans are unaware of having one or more chronic health problems and 25% are seriously ill. Only three million children are truly healthy according to the US Public Health Service. Within 50 years, heart disease has increased 300%; cancer by 308%; kidney disease by 600%; and diabetes by 1800%. Do we even know what normal health is anymore? It is absurd that Americans spend more on health care than the rest of the world combined ($800 billion a year), and remain the most disease dominated people on the planet. This is especially puzzling when one considers that numerous studies have shown that 80% illnesses are self-limiting, which mean people heal on their own. If modern medical treatment affects the outcome of only 20% of diseases, and therefore, is mostly a placebo effect, then the origin of most diseases must be related to drug usage and stress, depending on the strength of an individual's constitution.
"Doctor, no medicine! We are machines made to live, organized expressly for that purpose. Such is our nature. Do not counteract the living principle. Leave it at liberty to defend itself, and it will do better than your drugs." Napoleon Bonaparte
"Medical science asks the wrong questions and generates useless answers, while 'alternative' medicine labors under gross misconceptions and half truths that fail to produce long term results." John Thomas, who researched every aspect of health and aging for 29 years.
"Physicians are brain-washed to believe: 1) That they, and they alone, are qualified to make health decisions for others: 2) that laymen are too ignorant to know what's good for them; 3) that the toxic drugs, invasive surgeries and high-tech gadgets of modern medicine are the only solution to illness and disease; 4) that those who refuse orthodox medical treatments or question a physician's authority are mentally sick; 5) That if a physician breaks with medical orthodoxy, he will be ostracized and lose his ability to make money.... Medical researchers admit: That 85% of medical interventions are not supported by solid evidence; That only 1% of the articles in medical journals are scientifically sound; that 75% of the medications prescribed each year are worthless; and that the physician's diagnosis is wrong 68% of the time." Dr. Virgil Chrane
A mortality study by the American Medical Association of 250,000 physicians found that their average life expectancy was did not exceed 62 years. The average American lives to be 75.5 years old.
