All our lives we have heard, "consult your physician before taking any treatment." Although this sounds like good advice, it is actually promotion for conventional medical treatment. There are many other types of medicine, but most people don't know much about them. With the right approach you can change that, interest someone in alternative medicine, and possibly save their life.
What Happened to Good Medicine? How plant based medicine was shut down. Why conventional doctors can't prescribe alternative treatments.
It is difficult to convince someone, verbally, that their doctor does not have the best medicine. Written information is usually more convincing than conversation. However, giving a patient a long printout and saying "Read this" can seem dismissive. Consider this approach instead:
- Show your friend or relative that conventional medicine is not the only type of viable medicine, it is simply the only type that conventional doctors can prescribe. Print out the printer-friendly version of What Happened to Good Medicine?* (only four pages). Print in color if you can, the last page contains the color-coded Comparison Table.
- Demonstrate your desire to actively participate and support their use of alternative treatments. Do something active such as taking them to a presentation on any type of alternative medicine just to show that it is a thriving practice.
If you have a friend or loved one read the Conventional Treatments page, they will learn:
- Operations and chemo spread cancer
- Radiation causes cancer
- Chemo interferes with alternative cancer treatments
- Conventional treatment have a very low success rate
- Going the dangerous side effect route first does not make sense
If you are going to try and convince a person that conventional cancer treatments should be abandoned for alternative treatments by pointing out the poor performance and terrible side effects of conventional treatments, you must consider the effect of belief. In medicine, belief has a powerful effect on outcome. If a person has strong belief in their doctor's ability to cure them, their chance of survival goes up 20%. This is the well know placebo effect.
If a person does not have any belief in alternative cancer treatments, the verification step used in Test Kit Proof can boost their belief. But, if they are not even willing to give that test a try, consider how much belief a person has in conventional treatments before you say something that may destroy it.
Finding the Right Treatment is Usually Done Wrong
Everyone’s body chemistry is different. The key to surviving cancer is to find the treatment or treatments to which you best respond. Finding those treatments may sound difficult, but it can be done in a few minutes using a method promoted by people like Dr. Wayne Dyer.

Conventional Treatment Selection Is No Selection at All
During the past ten or twenty years there has been a number of “new treatments” for almost every condition. All of those treatments worked pretty well. But, new treatments are usually just a little better than the old. It would make sense for your doctor to test all the old and new treatments on you to see which one would be the most effective (if he knew a quick test method). However, in most cases, you are automatically given the newest treatment. Prescribing older treatments makes doctors appear to be uninformed.
Finding Your Best Treatments
If a patient believes in a treatment because it worked for a friend, it is reasonable for the patient to take that treatment. Many studies have shown significant, positive effects from believing in a treatment even when the "treatment" was a sugar pill. Taking an additional treatment because the patient’s research showed that it is the best treatment is also reasonable, but neither of these approaches help a patient find the most effective treatment based on his or her body. Only neurofeedback can.
How Many Treatments
It is reasonable to combine two or three treatments, it increases the odds of survival. However, if you take multiple treatments, check for compatibility using either the Compatibility column on the Comparison Table or the test kit.
Talking to Doctors
This section has two parts:
Check Out You Doctor
Before talking to your doctor, you may want to read what other patients have to say about him or her. You can use the pay-for-service web site Health Grades.
Before you give a conventional doctor complete authority over your treatment selection, consider how narrow their education was. Most doctors only know pharmaceuticals. After all these years without a decent cancer treatment it is clear that pharmaceuticals are not the likely answer.
Many parts of modern medicine are complicated, but treatment selection is not. You only need to ask your doctor these six questions about the treatment he or she is recommending and you will know enough to make an informed decision.
- What are the chances of this removing all the tumors and preventing their return?
- If the tumors return, do you test for Multiple Drug Resistant (MDR) cells? Chemo cannot kill MDR cells. Some alternative cancer treatments do. Returning tumors can be all MDR cells making chemo ill-advised. If you are getting a biopsy, a test for the percentage of MDR cells will tell you the percentage of the tumor upon which chemo will have no effect.
- What are the side effects and what percentage of patients experience each side-effect? If side affects are known the percentage is also known.
- What medications are usually prescribed as a result of each of those side effects?
- What are the side effects of those medications?
- Understanding that chemo often causes fatal complications such as pneumonia or kidney failure. And that death due to these complications is usually not credited to chemo. What in your estimation is the actual fatality rate for the treatment you are recommending?
You will find that doctors do not want you to know this information. The reason is that they want you to have the most positive attitude towards the treatments they recommend. However, if you are considering alternative cancer treatments you must learn the reality of the recommended conventional treatments in order to compare them to alternatives.
Before discussing alternatives with your doctor, realize that your doctor has received disinformation about alternative treatments. There are many books on this subject, but the best is "The Cancer Industry" by Ralph Moss. If you read such books you will learn that your doctor:
- Has completely distorted information about alternatives due to the pharmaceutical controlled medical establishment.
- Can not tell you about contradictions between alternatives and conventional medicine.
- Will most likely get upset at you and insist that you not take the alternatives even though he or she does not know about alternatives.
If you want to discuss alternative cancer treatments with your doctor, consider that your doctor should give you at least as much control over "repair decisions" as your automobile mechanic. If you want to give your doctor an example of the hypocrisy of his sources of information, print out the printer-friendly version of the NCI Test Fraud results* page.
If your doctor agrees that NCI tried to deceive, then your doctor should realize that there are other viable treatments than the ones he or she knows about. Therefore, you might be able to discuss alternatives without your doctor trying to intimidate you with anger and threats to discontinue care. These are typical tools doctors use to persuade you to continue to come to them for treatment. They cannot morally refuse to see you and you do not have to do not have to take what they tell you to take.
Many doctors appear to have an open mind about alternatives and then try and convince you to take conventional treatments first. Taking conventional treatments, which tend to spread and cause cancer* before taking safe alternative treatments may not be the best way to go.
The Best Way to Make the Treatment Decision
The best way to make the treatment decision is to make that decision at home with all the information you have collected at your fingertips. The doctors office is the worst place to make this decision. You may not be able to understand how different treatments work, but you can easily understand the risks and effectiveness of different treatments if your doctor is willing to tell you. If you agree to make the decision at home, then you will know that the decision was yours.
Finding an Alternative Doctor or Practitioner
Probably the best type of practitioner to help you find a safe cancer treatment are Naturopaths. Use the ByRegion network to find naturopaths and other types of alternative practitioner. First find your region then the type of practitioner you need.
Having trouble? If you are having trouble finding a practitioner:
- Visit the International Holistic Periodicals Directory** for practitioners that advertise in your area.
- Send Paul Winter an email including your state, town, and nearest large town. You should receive an instant reply asking you to verify that you are a real person and not a spam auto-sender.
Finding a Supportive Conventional Doctor
You can't ask a conventional doctor to recommend alternative cancer treatment. They can be sued or even imprisoned for recommending unconventional treatments. However, you can find a doctor that will support you while you use alternatives. And:
you can do a better job of finding your own treatments than most doctors.
To understand why that apparently outrageous statement is correct, read the "Finding the Right Treatment is Usually Done Wrong" section near the top of this page.
To find a supportive doctor, you can send something like the following letter to the oncologists in the hospital where you want to have your progress monitored:
I feel I should be able to control what is put into my body. Therefore, I am looking for a doctor who will not force me to take a treatment I do not believe in and will not threaten to withhold testing and evaluation if I decide to take something else. If I cannot find such a doctor, I will have to seek help completely outside of conventional medical care. Please let me know if you are able to support me in this manner.
Without a doubt the best present you can give a cancer patient is a spontaneous remission, consider learning more about hypnosis CDs and spontaneous remissions, click the CD.
