  1. Breast cancer patients rejecting chemo

    Why women are refusing to be wrecked by this treatment

    Here's a "Me Too" story you WON'T hear from the mainstream media.

    Women across the country have been out-and-out abused by modern medicine. They've been put through poisonous, dangerous, and even downright deadly treatments they never needed for a cancer that never would've hurt them.

    Now, new research shows how women are finding out, catching on, and taking action.

    They're REJECTING a common cancer treatment.

    Just four years ago, more than 1 in 3 women had toxic chemotherapy for early-stage breast cancer, or tumors that are often best given minimal treatment or even left alone.

    Today, it's down to just 1 in 5 women, according to a study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

    It's as if they're lining up and saying "Me Too!" on this critical issue that can have a direct impact not only on health... but also the all-important quality of life.

    Expect that number to keep dropping as mainstream cancer doctors realize that chemo is a risky "preventative treatment."

    Back in 2013, 45 percent of cancer docs were pushing this therapy.

    Today, that number is down to a third and likely dropping further, since there's a pretty good reason that women are rejecting chemo.

    The short-term side effects can leave you fatigued and miserable, leaving you battling nausea, memory loss, and anemia. It can also lay waste to your immune system, making you more prone to infection.

    And even when the treatment is over... long after those side effects fade... chemo isn't done with you yet.

    Over the long run, it can increase your risk of far more serious health problems.

    One study earlier this year found that 1 in 200 women treated with chemo and/or radiation for early-stage breast cancers will develop leukemia in the years that follow.

    All from a "treatment" that many of them never even needed!

    Breast cancer in the very earliest stages often does not need chemo. Often, it doesn't need any kind of treatment at all other than a doc who can keep tabs on the tumor.

    When you do need treatment, a localized surgery will usually do the job with no need for a full mastectomy, risky drugs, or toxic chemo.

    If you happen to need more aggressive treatment, there are ways to limit the damage, ease the side effects, and prevent further damage by working closely with a holistic medical doctor on natural detoxifying therapies.

  2. Breast cancer treatment eased with acupuncture

    Fight off the worst side effects of breast cancer treatment

    It's not how you pictured it.

    When you first get hit with a cancer diagnosis, you imagine that beating the disease would be cause for celebration.

    And certainly, you should celebrate a victory over this deadly disease.

    The problem is that you're often in no mood for a party. Treatment can leave you feeling run-down, beat-up, and sick as a dog.

    Celebrate??? You can barely stand up straight!

    Now, the latest research reveals one way to battle the toxic side effects of a common class of cancer drug, so you bounce back feeling better than ever.

    It finds that older women with breast cancer can fight off the agonizing joint pain that often comes from treatment with the help of acupuncture, a time-tested natural therapy already proven to ease dozens of other common forms of pain.

    The new study focused specifically on women given aromatase inhibitors, drugs for early-stage breast cancer that are notorious for making your joints feel as if they're trying to bust out of your body.

    Some of the women were given real acupuncture, while some were given a fake version of acupuncture in which the needles were put in the wrong places. A third set of women weren't given either.

    After six weeks, the women who got the real acupuncture were enjoying big-time pain relief, compared to those in the other two groups.

    The study focused on that infamously agonizing joint pain, but earlier research has found that acupuncture can also help deliver relief from other forms of pain caused by cancer treatment as well as ease symptoms such as nausea and fatigue.

    Naturally, there's a downside to the new study.

    Anyone with even half a brain would know the REAL problem isn't the pain itself. It's the CAUSE of that pain. It's the drugs that make cancer patients so miserable that some of them would rather battle the disease alone than keep taking the meds.

    The real solution should be to shift patients off of the drugs as quickly as possible and get them onto safer and less toxic alternatives.

    But that's not what they're saying about this one.

    Nope.

    The mainstream is throwing a celebration of its own, thinking that using acupuncture to deliver pain relief means that it can keep patients on these joint-ripping drugs for longer periods of time!

    Here's a better idea: Let's get patients onto treatments that work better and have LESS pain to begin with.

    Sure, there are times you might need toxic meds. But in many cases, patients can do with shorter courses or skip them altogether -- especially women with early-stage breast cancer.
