Cancer can be cured if you are willing to try a combination of therapies, work on your mind, adopt an optimisticattitude, and have faith in the Divine, says Shivi Verma
|A graphic representation of how the cancer cell forms and mutates|
I used to admire a tall and dusky woman who I met every day on my suburban train commute. Many times we exchanged smiles and pleasantries. Suddenly, she stopped coming. On enquiring I discovered that she was in hospital and was being treated for cancer. She succumbed to the disease a few months later. I still miss her prominent presence at the station, and find it unbelievable that someone so young, attractive and healthy looking could pass away so abruptly.
This seems to be a reality that more and more are confronting. Suddenly, unexpectedly, the dreaded disease swoops down and bears away a friend here, a relation there, and often enough, one’s own self, but not before it torments and tortures its prey. If the diagnosis of cancer strikes terror in people’s hearts, no less traumatizing is the mainstream line of treatment: surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Add to it the high cost of the treatment, and horrifying side-effects, and patients begin to feel that dying from cancer is a better option than treating it.
Fortunately, there are many alternative techniques and therapies that adopt a strikingly different methodology in treating cancer. Instead of killing the cancer cells (in the process destroying the healthy ones too), these techniques work on detoxifying the body, nourishing it with the right diet, healing the emotions and mind, and finally raising the immunity of the body, thereby empowering it to fight and defeat the cancer cells on its own. Instead of fighting with darkness, these techniques focus on turning on the light.
Perhaps one of the many reasons cancer has come into the world is to show us the limitations of mainstream medicine, and to fastforward the movement of an alternative approach. But the basics first.

Cancer cells can spread to other parts of the body through the blood and lymph systems. Cancer is not just one disease, but
