Never Fear Cancer Again: How to Prevent and Reverse Cancer

Overview

Most cancer research dollars have been wasted by asking the wrong questions, looking in the wrong places, and recycling the same failed approaches while expecting different results. Conventional cancer treatments damage health, cause new cancers, lower the quality of life, and decrease the chances of survival. In fact, most people who die from cancer are not dying from cancer, but from their treatments!

Overview

Most cancer research dollars have been wasted by asking the wrong questions, looking in the wrong places, and recycling the same failed approaches while expecting different results. Conventional cancer treatments damage health, cause new cancers, lower the quality of life, and decrease the chances of survival. In fact, most people who die from cancer are not dying from cancer, but from their treatments!

That's the bad news. Here's the good news: We can end the cancer epidemic. In Never Fear Cancer Again, readers will gain a revolutionary new understanding of health and disease and will come to understand that cancer is a biological process that can be turned on and off, not something that can be surgically removed or destroyed with radiation or toxic chemicals. So whether cancer has already been diagnosed or if prevention is the concern, it is possible to turn off the wayward production of these malfunctioning cells once and for all by reading this book and implementing its strategies.

The key to any disease has one simple cause: malfunctioning cells that are created by either deficiency or toxicity. By switching off the malfunctioning cells, you switch off the cancer. Never Fear Cancer Again guides readers along six pathways that cause deficiency or toxicity at the cellular level: nutritional path, genetic path, medical path, toxin path, physical path, and the psychological path. By making key lifestyle changes, people truly have the power to take control of cancer and transform their health. This radically different, yet holistic approach restored author Raymond Francis back to health just as it has helped thousands of others, many of whom were told they had no other options or that their cancer was incurable. Take back your health with this book and never fear cancer again.

Editorial Reviews

Net Galley - Jackie Hepton

What an inspiring book! I have thought for many years that the chemicals we have introduced to our foods have been the major source of today's epidemic of ill-health and this author confirms it.

This is a comprehensive explanation of how our bodies work and what they need. It details the things we need to do to keep them in optimal health. Everything contained in this book makes sense and full marks to Raymond Francis for being outspoken against the people and corporations who are undermining the public health.

-Jackie Hepton (contributor to Librarything)

"The simplicity of the Beyond Health model makes it very attractive, and certainly for those of us who are interested in staying well and avoiding diseases of all kinds the advice in this book is easy to accept and very worthwhile. Eating less junk food and more fresh vegetables and fruit and raw healthy grains, sprouts and nuts can only do us good, as can reducing our exposure to toxins and perhaps supplementing with a good multi-vitamin and fish oil at least."

1 AN OVERVIEW OF CANCER

Cancer is potentially the most preventable and
most curable of the major life-threatening diseases facing humankind.
—Dr. John R. Seffrin, CEO American Cancer Society

Most cancer patients in this country die of chemotherapy. . . .
Chemotherapy does not eliminate breast, colon, or lung cancers. . . .
Yet doctors still use chemotherapy for these tumors. . . .
Women with breast cancer are likely to die faster with chemo than without it.
—Alan Levin, M.D., Clinical Ecologist, San Francisco

'You have cancer.' These are some of the most terrifying words you will ever hear. They will change your life in an instant, turning your world upside down. Cancer is officially the second leading cause of death in the United States, and is on its way to becoming the leading cause of death—but you don't have to live in fear. Most cancer occurs needlessly, and can be turned off like a light switch.

People fear cancer for the same reason children fear the dark. It is not the darkness itself that is feared, but the uncertainty of not knowing what is there, and imagining what might be there. Cancer is scary, especially when hearing the diagnosis for the first time. It causes large uncertainties: how long will you live, how will it affect your family, your job, and so forth? This book shines light into that darkness with knowledge that reveals what cancer is, how it is caused, and how to reverse it. Eliminate the darkness of ignorance and you will never have to fear cancer again.

Preventing and Reversing Cancer

The truth is cancer cells are always being produced in the body. It is an ongoing process; some researchers estimate that we all produce from several hundred to several thousand cancer cells per day. Historically, this hasn't been a problem because our immune systems were designed to seek these cells out and destroy them. However, beginning in the mid-twentieth century we started to dramatically increase the number of cancer cells we are producing. What is driving this explosion? Our junk-food diets, living in a sea of manmade toxins and electromagnetic fields, high-stress lifestyles, lack of exercise, exposure to artificial light, and health-damaging medical ­treatments.

All the above have impaired our immune systems, and we are now creating more cancer cells than our overworked and depleted immune systems can destroy. These same factors also shift the body's internal environment to one that promotes the growth of cancer. This is why almost all of us, especially those over age fifty, now have small clusters of cancer cells throughout our bodies. The chances are, if you are over age fifty, you already have cancer! Fortunately, these cancer cells won't bother you—unless you switch them on and drive them to grow and metastasize—and you have control over whether this happens. You don't have to be a helpless victim. If you can turn cancer on, you can turn cancer off.

We have to remind ourselves that historically cancer was a rare disease. It is only since the early part of the twentieth century, and especially over the last half century in the industrialized nations, that cancer has increased dramatically. Why is this happening? What have we changed?

We have changed what we eat and how we live. What we call 'modern civilization' has fundamentally changed our diet, our environment, and our lifestyle. These changes have reduced the amount of essential nutrients available to our cells, filled our bodies with toxins, exposed us to radiation, caused massive disruption to our normal biorhythms, and impaired our bodies' internal communication, self-regulation, and self-repair—that's a lot of change.

Changes in farming, food distribution, food processing, and an-imal management have reduced the nutritional content of our food, altered the ratios of critical nutrients, changed the chemistry of the fats and oils in our diet, and added thousands of unnatural, manmade chemicals. Large quantities of refined sugar and refined oils have been added to our diet. In fact, more than half our calories now come from foods that didn't even exist when our genes were developing. These are: refined sugar, bleached flour, and processed oils. We are now consuming a diet filled with low quality food that is woefully deficient in life-supporting nutrients while being loaded with toxins.

We live in an invisible sea of toxic chemicals, most of which didn't exist prior to World War II, and our bodies are absorbing these chemicals like sponges. Hundreds of them are bioaccumu-lating in our cells and tissues, building up to levels that cause serious malfunction, weakening our immune systems, and making us sick. Once sick, we are treated with drugs made of toxic synthetic chemicals, which make our bodies even more toxic and therefore sicker.

Our lifestyles expose us to unprecedented amounts of radia-tion; we live sedentary lives, have disrupted our sleep patterns, don't get enough sunlight, and are chronically stressed. When you think about it, it's amazing we are functioning as well as we are, but then more than three out of four of all Americans suffer from at least one diagnosable chronic disease.

To make sense of our unprecedented epidemic of chronic and degenerative disease, you have to understand that, in a relatively short period of time, we have fundamentally changed the parameters of human existence—our diet, environment, and lifestyle. These changes are having a catastrophic impact on our ability to maintain health. The reality is this: We are now eating a diet, functioning in an environment, and living a lifestyle that promotes cancer. Cancer has become normal given the way we live! Fortunately, all we need to do is remove the conditions that allow it to develop in the first place.

Problems get solved when you address the cause. If you want to end cancer, at least in your own body, you have to reverse the conditions that allowed your cancer to develop by making differ-ent choices. You must change your internal environment into one that supports health rather than one that promotes cancer. You must learn how to give your cells the nutrients they need, how to reduce your toxic load, and how to live a lifestyle that supports health rather than disease.
Nobody knows everything there is to know about cancer, and most likely, a lot of what we think we know is wrong. However, we don't need to know everything to prevent cancer or make it go away. What we already know is sufficient. Science has already provided a good understanding of what makes cancer grow and metastasize, so you can learn how to make choices in your daily living that prevent cancer from growing and metastasizing. We really don't need to spend billions more trying to find a cure for cancer.

To help you make the right choices, I have created a simple model of health, which I call the Beyond Health Model, based on the concept of One Disease, Two Causes, and Six Pathways. I also use a simple analogy between driving your car and driving cancer. Take your foot off the accelerator, apply the brake, turn the ignition switch off, and your car stops. In much the same way, you can stop cancer.

Martha's Experience

In 2006, Martha was diagnosed with a malignant lump growing in her neck that was affecting her facial nerves. Doctors surgically removed the lump and deemed the operation a success, but as usual with conventional treatment, the patient wasn't cured. A little more than a year later, Martha was diagnosed with five lesions in her lungs and a lesion on one arm. Her cancer had metastasized. She knew how much trouble she was in. Martha had already learned enough on her own to know that she would not survive if she continued to pursue conventional treatments with her metastasized cancer. She decided to help herself by choosing to get well. She took personal responsibility for her health, and learned how to turn her cancer switches off and to stop driving her cancer.

After reading Never Be Sick Again, Martha contacted me for help to get on the best diet and supplement program. She ­eliminated ­sugars, grains, processed oils, dairy, and animal pro-tein. She added fresh organic fruits as well as large quantities of vegetables in the form of juices. She also started on a program of high-quality, anticancer supplements. After only a few weeks, Martha went for her scheduled surgery to have her lung removed, but after repeated scans on her lungs, the doctors couldn't find any lesions. They thought there was something wrong with the machine. In disbelief, they sent her home. The doctor who was supposed to remove the cancer on her arm kept calling, wanting to schedule surgery to remove the lesion that was no longer there, even though he had been told it was gone.

Martha is far from alone with such an experience. Her cure was not miraculous, nor was it an isolated, random incident without a cause. Martha's experience has been shared by countless other individuals who have had more faith in the body's ability to heal itself than in conventional medicine's toxic treatments. Cancer can be prevented and reversed by addressing the underlying causes. Martha now understands that the changes she made to reverse her cancer were the very same ones that could have prevented it in the first place. She has now permanently changed her diet and lifestyle to make sure the cancer never returns—she is choosing health instead of disease.

Even better than reversing cancer is preventing it. Prevention is the ultimate answer to cancer. It is far easier to prevent cancer than to fix it after it happens. Dr. Samuel Broder, former director of the National Cancer Institute, once said, 'Each time a patient comes in and needs cancer therapy, you could say it was a failure of prevention.' The most promising approach to controlling our cancer epidemic is a commitment to prevention—anyone can make this commitment.

    Readers beware that the book Never Fear Cancer Again offers unso

    Readers beware that the book Never Fear Cancer Again offers unsound health advice, is very misleading, and is potentially dangerous.  Even the title is misleading because the book actually causes readers to fear getting cancer, even if you are and live completely healthy.  This is due to the claims that most of our diets and lifestyles promote cancer.  If you have cancer, the book is more dangerous since it recklessly states that doctors poison patients with conventional medical treatments, which are ultimately “useless” treatments.  The bottom line is beware that the book promotes alternative medicine (meant to substitute mainstream care) and not complementary medicine (which is used only to supplement mainstream medical care).  The distinction is essential.




    There is an excellent article online from 9/2014 titled Mythbusters: Complementary and Alternative Treatments in Cancer.  This article reviews clearly treatments which are proven beneficial, those that are not, and gives sound nutritional advice.  It also warns that a “major problem is there are still quacks claiming alternative cures”, which is relevant to the advice in Never Fear Cancer Again.  Alternative practitioners prey on the vulnerability of people to try “safer” alternative treatments, especially those who have difficulty with conventional medical treatments.  Note, if someone has truly failed traditional medicine, a trial of alternative medicine may be an option.  Unfortunately, some people are mislead (as with this book) into using alternative treatments from the start, and thus delay potential lifesaving medical care.




    Alternative practitioners often focus on trying to discredit traditional medical care, and the book’s author is no different.  He claims that cancer specialists (including oncologists and researchers) purposely don’t cure cancer since their livelihoods would be gone.  We are suppose to believe these professionals want people to get cancer and die from it, including themselves and their families (?)  This just doesn’t hold up to rational thinking.  Moreover, the author tries to prove that modern medicine is stuck in the 1950’s.  Unfortunately for the author, most people are well aware of the advances in medical care and cancer research.  Even more compelling is that most people have experienced this benefit either in their lives or the lives of people close to them.




    The book’s author tries to misguide readers to believe in his diet and life protocol, which he claims first cured his own medication-induced liver disease.  It is unfortunate if he (or anyone) had side effects from medicine, including liver injury.  But fortunately our bodies (and livers) can regenerate and heal.  There is no magical cure the author discovered, and this certainly makes him no expert on health and longevity.




    Overall, the author goes through a lot of trouble to try and convince readers of the science behind his advice on diet and lifestyle.  Unfortunately, many of his explanations of cellular physiology have no scientific basis (termed pseudoscience by another astute reviewer).  He then tries to get people to purchase his supplements, in spite of many studies showing that multiple supplements do not reduce the risk of cancer, and may actually increase the risk of dying from cancer.  (Oregon State University has the Linus Pauling online site with excellent information on vitamins and supplements).




    Hopefully people will realize if someone has truly found a cure for disease and/or cancer, we will all know.  What person would not want to know?  You don’t have to search obscure books for the answer.  Lastly, the longest-lived and cancer-free people are not vegetarians, as the book may lead you to believe.  The longest-lived and cancer-free people have good, well balanced diets, and aren’t taking a bunch of supplements.  Save your time and money.  Read the Mythbusters article, exercise, eat well, and enjoy life.  Focus on health, and not cancer or alternative fads.
