Almost everyone on the planet fears death. Some more than others, of course, but no one is going headlong into it saying “Whoo Hoo! Death, yeah, that’s for me!”
You can turn away from it, you can try not to think about it, you can avoid it right up until the grim reaper is smiling in your face, but the truth of the matter is…you will die. So will I. So will everyone on this earth.
Nature is a harsh mother and she honestly doesn’t care if you find a way to survive or not.
She knows that the fittest will survive and the stupid don’t and she likes it that way.
Modern day science, while aware that they can’t fight nature or death, tries their best to keep that old bastard death at bay for as long as possible. In any way possible. They aren’t always able to but sometimes they can kick death to the curb for another 30 years. Other times, all they can buy you is a few weeks, but either way, they are doing their best to fight back against the lord of death.
Let’s be honest here. No one has ever become cancer free ( or free from any other type of terminal illness such as rheumatoid arthritis or smallpox) by “natural” means.
Wishing, wanting, and hoping to be cured “naturally” is completely understandable. Seriously, who wants to spend weeks or months in a hospital being cut open, tubes stuck in every orifice, losing your hair or puking for hours on end?
No one wants to die or go through that, so they look for a “natural” way to fix things. Things such as teas, essential oils, a raw or vegetarian diet, taking huge quantities of vitamins, minerals, or the extracts from a wide assortment of plants.
The problem is, these solutions never work. NEVER.
Oh yes, you could go on, talking about how a friend of a friend of your second cousin’s sister in law was saved from breast cancer by drinking three gallons of raw juice each day, but without evidence, this is just another old wives tale. That meme making the rounds on FB? The one with black man who says he beat cancer with raw foods and juice? What that meme doesn’t say is that he had surgery and chemo FIRST, before turning to a raw food diet.
Of course, we understand that, for those facing a diagnosis of Stage 4 cancer, you are pretty much willing at that point to try just about anything.We are torn because while we support your right to try whatever to try to save your life, on the other hand, this only feeds the “woo” fire that causes people to believe that “natural” cures actually work.
When you look at the truth: 1. You are going to die and have limited time. 2. NO NATURAL PRODUCT HAS EVER CURED ANYONE; it become pretty clear that your money and time would be better suited to taking a nice vacation with your family and loved ones, rather than believing some documentary that has no truth in it whatsoever.
Another popular, seemingly never ending story is that vitamin B17, sometimes called laetrile, is a true “cure” for cancer, the government knows it, but has banned it because, you know, money. Keep in mind that not one person who has ever used this vitamin, has had their life extended nor their cancer (or any other disease) cured by it. If these stories about laetrile stopping cancer were true, American’s would be flocking to Mexico by the thousands and you would hear about it. Laetrile is still available for sale there, yet, remarkably, people in Mexico still die of cancer daily.
Those words “natural” and “organic” have come to mean a whole lot of nothing. Most people believe that their “organic” food is grown without a drop of pesticides, but this isn’t true. And the word “natural”? It’s nothing more than a marketing ploy to get you to think that what you are using is somehow better because it came from nature. A product only needs one ingredient (such as water) to claim that it is “made from natural ingredients”.
To top it all off, you pay extra for those “natural” ingredients, some of which, while they might be natural, can kill you or cause you serious harm.
The mistake many people make is in thinking that natural is synonymous with harmless. Bears are certainly natural, but we wouldn’t go so far as to say that they were harmless. The same is true of arsenic, falling rocks, bee stings if you have an allergy, or even many herbs. Herbs such as comfrey and kava kava, often sold as “natural” products to treat insomnia or anxiety, contain compounds that can cause liver failure or liver damage.
It’s time for people to take a hard look at so called “natural” remedies and realize that, like everything else in this world, there is good and bad to be found. There are good pharmaceuticals that will improve your life, extend your life, and even save your life. There are bad ones that get found out about later on when people are injured or killed, true, but the same is true of so called natural remedies (B17).
If drinking a cup of chamomile tea in the evenings helps you to sleep, that sounds terrific! However, if you think that drinking tea from moringa oleifera trees will kill cancer, you are a victim of a con artist.
