  1. Okay, thanks for the clarification and encouragement. As I explained yesterday, a lot has happened since we learned about my wife's breast cancer back in early March of this year. It was - and, of course, still is - quite a journey we're on. Maybe you're right and somebody might benefit from our experience. As soon as my time allows, I will put something together describing what we did and why we did it that way. I got to be careful, though, and I guess you figured that by now : I'm not a native English speaker and therefore my choice of words, the structure of my phrasing plus the general lack of eloquence sometimes lead to misunderstandings. Anyway, I'll give it a shot once I get to free up some time. Precisely - I couldn't agree more. Thank you for the wishes. Thank you very much - greatly appreciated.

  3. Thanks for the all comments to my posting from earlier today. I think an internet forum such as this one (which was created for another purposes) is the wrong place to elaborate in depth about all the pros and cons coming with either approach. I will therefore not continue to post here. Just a very last comment, because I don't want to be misunderstood: I completely agree with your statements saying that there is no universal solution to this problem. What might work for one person, does not necessarily work for another one. My general point was, that I think that it's very important to make an educated decision - whatever that may be. Thank you both for the positive wishes.
  4. Hi there, I understand that this topic was mainly created for women and it is not my intention to bother anybody with my beliefs. However, maybe I can contribute a little bit to the discussion surrounding breast cancer which took place at the beginning of this thread. My wife and I were taken completely by surprise when we learned about her breast cancer diagnosis earlier this year. Nobody can relate to the kind of helplessness you feel when confronted with something like that, unless you actually had to experience it yourself. There was no family history of any kind of cancer in my wife's family. She has been living a rather healthy lifestyle (vegetarian, non-smoker, moderate alcohol consumption, etc.), yet, she got breast cancer. It was detected through her annual mammo, then followed by a biopsy and the pathology report. We immediately started researching. The internet is a curse and a blessing at the same time, but it was a great source of information to us, in addition of the loads of books we went through ever since we learned about the diagnosis. It is not my intention to convince people and try to tell them what they should do or not - nor do I claim that our approach to tackle the situation is the ultima ratio to the problem. However, as a result of our studying and the countless discussions with doctors across all camps and backgrounds, we do strongly believe, that there is a link between what you put into your body (and what you expose your body to) and the development of cancer, or for that matter, the cure of the disease. We are now on a mainly raw food diet, cut out any processed food ("processed" does include cooking, too), a lot of juicing and green drinks, high doses of Vit C IV and B17, and so forth. Well, the results are simply amazing. But no matter what: as a general advice, for a cancer patient (or family member/friend), I do believe that it is of paramount importance to educate yourself and become your own "doctor". And please don't mistake me: I am not saying you shouldn't see a doctor and take it on yourself, not at all. I think you should actually put a team of HCPs together, consisting of conventional and alternative doctors AND nutritionists. And when I say alternative, it's needless to say that I don't refer to anyone who wants to sell you a "wonder-herb" claiming that this will cure you of your disease. There are a lot of legitimate and licensed alternative MDs out there. A treatment plan, for instance, could be a combination of both, traditional chemo and complementary alternative treatments. But again, my point is, get as much information together as possible before you jump to any conclusions or make any premature decisions. It is your life, your body and ultimately you have responsibility for that - and more importantly, you are in control! Best wishes.

  6. Hi and thanks, Deborah. Yeah, I figured that already by browsing through the threads - a wealth of knowledge and interesting people, indeed. I was also hoping to meet some "old friends" here I used to hang out with online in a Zeppelin chat room back ten years ago or so. Unfortunately, the chat-room was shut down for reasons unbeknownst to me. Well, we shall se...

  8. "The China Study". Not necessarily an eye-opener to me, but finally a book that brings substantial scientific evidence to the table in order to support the idea that there is a strong link between the most common diseases we suffer from, and the stuff we put into our bodies, typically referred to as "food".
