Biological Therapies The Most Popular Alternative Therapy Option For Breast Cancer Patients

February 19, 2010 by  

Biological therapies the most popular alternative therapy option for breast cancer patientsThe most popular complementary and alternative (CAM) medicines for women suffering from breast cancer are biologically based therapies, such as vitamins or dietary supplements, a Michigan State University (MSU) researcher has found.

Gwen Wyatt of MSU’s College of Nursing, who is working to create a support intervention program for women recovering from breast cancer, looked at the five major categories of alternative therapies, including biological, mind-body, manipulative and body, energy and alternative medical systems.

After biologically based therapies, the second most popular CAM treatment option were mind-body therapies, which involve the use of audio tapes, video and music therapy.

Wyatt also discovered that the majority of women recovering from breast cancer surgery are using CAM methods without the full knowledge of their benefits.

"Women are using these therapies, but they have little education about safety and efficacy," said Wyatt. "They could really benefit from information on how to make a wise decision and choose the best therapies."

Women recovering from breast cancer who are interested in alternative therapies should consult their physician.

    Don’t forget to include bioidentical hormone therapy. It is safe, it is is PROVEN and it works. The FDA and the AMA have ignored scientific proof and responsible for wasted lives and money in America.
    Arm yourselves with documented evidence available from many sources, starting with this web site. Buy a copy of FDA: Fraud, Deception, Abuse. America, the FDA, the AMA [and Big Pharma] are NOT your friends. Big Pharma, the FDA and the AMA do not give a royal damn about us. How many people have to die before you understand and admit what is going on? Chickens guarded by foxes get a better deal than the American people. WAKE UP!

    Folks I had cancer in my nasal passages I am not 100% sure this will work on Breast cancer.
    But it cured me in about 4 months.

    But please do keep in mind that I have also done two other things that I feel their effect would have been limited but helped to cure me faster.

    #1, Don’t intake any “processed sugar’s” use than natural honey from where you live,
    #2, More steamed foods, “no processed foods at all.”{ No fried foods.}
    All the people I have spoken with that have gone with these and the HEMP OIL / Paste have been cured in about six months on the far end.

    Please google; Run from the cure, the Rick Simpson story.
    From that there are many other sights you can find.

    Its easy to make the oil / paste it taste like yuck, but it works.

    For women who visit this web site, PLEASE get a second or a third opinion before you commit to any breast cancer protocol. The FDA doesn’t hesitate to control medical information (this is documented), and as long as it denies access to therapies that offer safer options, women will find themselves potential victims of the agency that supposedly ‘protects’ us but does not.
    Sadly, the FDA is mostly all talk, short on action (unless it denies the right to choose one’s options), and in effect amounts to an agency that takes special pains to mirror concentration camp approaches. Arm yourselves with knowledge that the FDA doesn’t want you to know, people. Your health is in peril, and the FDA will protect drug companies first.
    It is no accident that a functional FDA would by itself solve
    America’s so-called health care “crisis.”
    Either arm yourselves with the knowledge that you need, or learn to enjoy living in a country where drug profits are more important than lives. This is war, people, and death by government-approved, criminal incompetence is the price of losing this war.

    Women need to be able to get the bioidentical hormone therapy easy. Most can’t travel a long way to get it. With all that is known about it, I can’t understand why it is so hard to find. I won’t go for the mammograms because they can be dangerous and will never take premarin or anything else they are trying to put off on us. If we have what our bodies need, we wouldn’t have to worry. Not having hormones makes your life miserable.
