Guest Blog by @cheekiweeki Driving in the car this morning and listened to 5Live. Very interesting. You can play it and listenat this link http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b07z3z98 . Emma interviewed a lady in the studio who was diagnosed with cancer in May 2016 with Stage 4. She was offered palliative care by the NHS who told her that they could do no more for her. She had cancer of the stomach and this soon went to her lungs and liver. She sold her house and car and headed for Germany where she started treatment. Today she says that the cancer is gone from her stomach and lungs but there is still a little left in the liver. She goes back to Germany in two weeks for further treatment that, hopefully, will result in her liver being clear too. Listen to her story which is one of many. Emma also talked to a cancer specialist 'Karol Sikora (http://bit.ly/2e4bq3k) who seems to back the NHS/chemo and said that 'these people can't open in the UK because of the Act of 1939 which prevents them from making claims that they can cure cancer." Whilst I agree totally that it is right not to let 'anybody' open a clinic and make false claims, I also feel that it is wrong to prohibit people, suffering from this terrible illness, from having an alternative treatment to chemotherapy. I understand that in the USA it is illegal for a doctor to advise a patient to have any other treatment except chemotherapy. I personally know several people in that country, who had cancer and they were virtually bullied and harassed that if they didn't sign up for chemo immediately, they would die. Neither did, one was under advisement to have a mastectomy. She took advice from two other sources, discovered that not only did she not need a mastectomy, but that she didn't even have cancer. Four years have passed and she is still alive and well. Lots of homework has to be done, check with others who have used certain clinics that deal with similar cancer as the patient has. Check the numbers of people who recovered. Cancers are different, people are different, what works for one may not work for another, but given similar circumstances, itwould seem to me that one would have a good chance of recovery. Karol also said that at one time the those in the medical profession were not even allowed to use the word 'Cancer' to their patients. Now with the Internet, this word is commonly used because people canread all about it so freely. This comment is such a perfect example of how those who think themselves superior to the common man, make decisions to keep them 'in the dark' for their own good. We, the common men and women of this world are kept in the dark concerning lots of things, UFOs for one. Thank goodness for the Internet - maybe this is truly the age of enlightenment.
