How This Helps

Media and drug companies make us believe that cancer cannot be cured. But the truth is not exactly what we are being told. Alternative medicine practitioners and natural healers stick to the  belief  that  meaningful  and successful  treatments  to fight  cancer  have  been  discovered several years ago, but the ideas were not popular enough simply for the enormous monetary factor related to the pharmaceutical companies all over the world.
It is true that generally known treatments like surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy have a positive effect in bringing remission to cancer but without proper maintenance and nutritional support, the condition is most likely to relapse and even increase in intensity.
