We’ve often told our readers that a doctor can lose his license for recommending alternative cancer treatments, or virtually any natural treatment. I personally know of at least four cases of doctors who were arrested and tried for practicing natural medicine in the United States.
One went to jail, one saw his internationally famous clinic closed, and two of them got off after spending a huge amount of money on legal bills. And I know a fifth doctor who was not arrested but was hauled before his medical board and had his license taken away.
Then a sixth doctor wrote to tell me he got fired for the same “offense.”
It makes for interesting reading, especially if you STILL think “my doctor would tell me about alternative treatments if they really worked.” That might be true if your doctor is also planning to go into another line of work. Keep reading. . .
To protect his privacy, we’ll call him “Doctor M.” He was a medical doctor who worked as a radiologist performing mammograms, ultrasounds, biopsies, and other diagnostic procedures.
Breast radiologists like Dr. M interpret these body images to diagnose and treat medical conditions, including breast cancer. You can imagine that he had many opportunities to deliver both good and bad news about what he saw.
Dr. M felt that an important part of his professional responsibility was to give sound advice on preventive strategies to help reduce his patients’ risk for breast cancer. He found some great websites that he was eager to share with patients—and that’s what he did on a regular basis.
But his fellow practitioners didn’t agree…
Dr. M said other clinicians objected to his sharing tips on nutrition and supplements to help battle breast cancer. They often felt uncomfortable when patients asked questions based on information Dr. M shared with them.
What’s more, it makes me wonder — if people listened to his advice and tried some of the cancer-prevention strategies…the medical establishment might not have as many cancer patients to pay for their traditional treatments!
So how do you solve a problem like Dr. M? You FIRE him!
Take a look at some of the “subversive”
information he was spreading…
By now you must be wondering, “What on earth was Dr. M telling people?”
For starters, he was telling them about iodine. This nutrient is found in abundance in the ocean. But it’s not as plentiful in the soil that grows most of the foods we eat.
Many people know that an iodine deficiency can produce thyroid problems. In fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends 165 mg of iodine to prevent thyroid cancer in the event of a radiation emergency. But you might not know how iodine can play a key role in maintaining healthy breasts, too.
Breast tissue and breast milk actually have higher concentrations of iodine than your thyroid. This is because iodine is critical for the healthy development of a newborn infant’s brain. Little wonder that several scientific studies have shown iodine helps prevent or treat breast cancer. We’ve written about this several times in the past.
In one study, scientists found iodine deactivates genes that promote cancer—and turns on genes that promote cancer cell apoptosis (natural cell death).
Iodine also helps regulate your cortisone levels and normalize your immune system. When cortisol levels are out of whack—you may face a higher risk of breast cancer and fibrocystic breast disease.
But the cancer industry would prefer that you not know any of this since they can’t patent iodine. And remember… no patent equals no profit!
Dr. M even told patients how to find out
which foods influence breast cancer risk –for better or worse
This rogue radiologist went as far as sharing a website that, by its own admission, contains: “…information on how various foods and other factors affect breast cancer risk, prevention and prognosis. The findings are drawn exclusively from scientific studies and updated as new research becomes available.”
The site is called Food for Breast Cancer (www.foodforbreastcancer.com). It’s one of the many now available with the goal to provide information that helps breast cancer patients, those at risk of breast cancer, and survivors prevent and reverse this terrifying disease.
This site even provides articles on what to eat based on a specific type of breast cancer you may be battling. I guess Dr. M’s colleagues were shocked that he’d steer patients to articles like these listed on the site:
- What should breast cancer patients and survivors eat during tamoxifen treatment?
- What should triple negative breast cancer patients and survivors eat?
- Does Type 2 diabetes increase the risk of breast cancer?
- Red wine: Should breast cancer patients and those at high risk drink it?
By searching this site, I found out which oils and condiments made the list of recommended foods. I even learned why avocados and papayas made the list of foods to avoid. But I think the most shocking thing I saw were the links to dozens of scientific studies to support these food recommendations! My, that Dr. M had a nerve!
Dr. M’s colleagues thought he was out of line to share this information with people who were seeking solutions for a possible cancer diagnosis. But Dr. M didn’t stop there. He also told patients about…
Supplements to help them
LIVE AS LONG AS POSSIBLE!
Dr. M shared scientific information like we share here in this newsletter on vitamins, nutrients, and supplements to address cancer and many of the other diseases that wreck people’s health. He directed them to articles like ours that reveal the pros and cons of traditional cancer therapies as well as alternative cancer therapies.
What’s important to point out is that Dr M wasn’t forcing people’s hands like many conventional doctors do when they counsel people with cancer. Instead, he was giving them information so that they could investigate for themselves and make the treatment choices that are right for their individual situations.
A study performed at The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center reported that out of the 99.3 percent of patients who’d heard of alternative medicine, about 75 percent (i.e. nearly all of them) wanted more information about these options. And about one-half of those participating in the survey wanted the information to come from their own physician team!
I can only hope that one day Dr. M’s former colleagues and the rest of the conventional medical establishment will bend to the will of the people and begin to provide this helpful knowledge. Until then, you can count on us here at Cancer Defeated to tell you about the alternative therapies and treatments your doctor avoids or doesn’t even know about.
