Default Biography Says Steve Jobs Tried Exotic Treatments For Cancer

http://www.cnbc.com/id/44988348



"
Quote:
His early decision to put off surgery and rely instead on fruit juices, acupuncture, herbal remedies and other treatments some of which he found on the Internet infuriated and distressed his family, friends and physicians, the book says."
We don't know all the details of what he tried, but I remember hearing someone say, fruit juice cleanses, vegetable juice nurishes. They don't mention vegetable juice. This seems to be a shot at alternative medicine. Personally, I believe that most cancer is probably 100% curable with food. Otherwise, people like Dr. Leonard Coldwell and other medical doctors would not have such success using different formulations of baking soda/maple syrup and other raw juicing. I figure, everyone on this forum probably agrees with the above statement that most if not all cancer is probably 100% curable with food. And I'm sure, most of you are more knowledgeable about it than I am.

No guarentee this herb or that herb will help, but chemotherapy will definitely kill you. If I had cancer: it would be herbal, macrobiotics etc, No chemo or radiation. Also, very few survive pancreatic cancer, it was not the herbs that hurt him

I do not think that all cancer is curable with food alone. I have seen too many people try and fail. You need to somehow boost the immune system to recognise the particular microbe involved to kill it or you have to take some kind of herb or other medicine that will do it or directly kill that pathogen, or an medicine that will cut off the ciruclation to the tumor... as in angiotensis.. is that the right word?

Andrew Weil says you have to activate the heling system, and although food can definitely help, supplements, activity and especially an great attitude are vital to this.

all that and more... in most cases.

He was so wealthy, he could have had the best of clinics in Germany. They cure more cancer there than any other country on the planet... such a shame. He was so ill advised.

I like the part : For the price of a new car, german doctors will make you better and in the US for the price of 10 new cars, they will poison and burn you to death

Yes, in general that is true but he was suppose to have a slower growing type, still they wanted the surgery sooner than 7 months. In germany he still may have had the surgery. They don't fool around there but the alternatives selected may have been more effective and he would have had the best of integrative medicine

The only thing that can cure cancer is the immune system. Alternative doctors understand that while conventional doctor's do not. That is why diet is such an important tool in battling cancer, but is only one spoke in the wheel.

The immune system can't function properly if the body is toxic, as pointed out by Charlotte Gerson, thus the need to detoxify.

The immune system can't kill cancer cells if they mimic ordinary cells, and health cannot be achived unless balance is restored, which means all the necessary vitamins, minerals, and trace minerals must be made available in optimal amounts.

Quick killer yes. Typically two years. But he went from 2003 to 2011, or 8 years! Maybe he was doing something right.

Hulga Clark in her book, "The Cure for All Cancers" stresses the urgency to kill parasites and remove toxins that are in the body such as propylene glycol (often found in lotions and body care) and PCB's found in laundry detergent. One toxin that surprised me was Benzene. She said it was often in cold cereals and some bottled waters.

Cancer is complex but if you can get to the root cause whether from nutrient deficiencies or toxicities such as too much iron, parasites, or chemical toxins there is a good chance that your body's immune system will do what it needs to do.

Good point! The MSM didn't point that out on the news. They just said that if he opted for surgery as opposed to alternatives, then the outcome might've been different.

From some of the reading I have done the success rate with surgery for the rare type of pancreatic cancer that he had was very high. Seems he did not perhaps weigh that into his decision... Im still trying to find out more about it.
His was not the usual pancreatic cancer that kills most. Apparrently by the time he had surgery on the pancreas it had already spread to the liver and they noted cancer cells around the pancreas also invading other tissues.. so already it was to late except for a fight.. Then he had a liver transplant... but alas, it had already spread to other parts before that.

One cannot help but wonder if ozone therapy could have helped, or mms or a multitude of other things out there... but those are things I wonder about will all cancers in all people.

Liver transplant means immune surpressing drugs which allow cancers to spread quicker.

yes, but by the time your at that level of disease.. its already too late in most cases, even with alternative medicine. Stage 3 and 4 a very difficult...not impossible with alternatives but....he would have had to been at some of the best clinics in the world to get the help he needed and it seems that did not happen. Of course the liver transplant was the final nail in the coffin for help with alternative medicine which he didn't really seem to have adequate access to anyway
