This is fairly typical for this department. Their current Secretary has been a party and state loyalist for decades. This agency will go to great lengths to protect the agency long before it will admit wrong doing and make any corrective changes. It is little different than Washington state’s Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) or other agency for that matter. In 1998 the then governor issued an executive order addressing the lack of proper investigative acumen in state agencies. Clearly WA DOH ignored this over the past decade and more.
Look at the recent attack on Phil Werschler, MD of Spokane.
Look back many years at the attack on Glenn Warner, MD of Seattle. He was a champion of the people, especially those with cancer, and years ahead of this time.
CANCER SURVIVAL and WELLNESS
The Philosophy of Dr. Glenn A. Warner, M.D. (1919-2000)
“I learned many lessons during my years of practice, the most important being: * Cancer is a carcinogenic process within the body that can be reversed, * The healing process is entirely up to you, * Reversing the carcinogenic process and becoming a long term survivor requires you to take control of your life, make informed choices about treatment, and select the therapies best suited to your healing process.”
THE PROCESS OF HEALING “Self empowerment is the key to a healthy life. Simply put, it means you must take charge of the things you do in your life in order to create and maintain the health you want. If you suffer a life threatening illness, you are fully capable of making the choices and changes necessary to help your body heal. It’s up to you and you alone; no one else can do it for you. Healing and maintaining your health is your responsibility, not the doctor’s. The doctors job is to help you buy time to heal.” Use this time well and begin planning now what you want your life to be after you recover!
What do we know about cancer? The majority, if not all of us, live with cancer cells in our bodies all the time. Our immune system keeps these cells under control until events occur in our lives that prevent it from doing its job of keeping cancer cells at bay. The process of degeneration usually starts with a trauma to the body, mind or emotions. In my clinical practice I found it takes 10-15 years for cancer to develop to a stage where it becomes a problem for the individual. Toward the end of this period a key event or trigger in the individual’s life will accelerate the cancer growth; usually one year prior to the development of the malignant stage.
What do we know about the immune system? * It’s your body’s primary cancer fighter, it can be strengthened. * Depression, fear, anxiety and stress suppress it. * Chemotherapy and radiation can destroy it. * Raw natural foods strengthen it. * Poor quality foods and malnutrition are the main causes of immune system deficiency (example: sugar can shut off the immune system and inactivates white blood cells for up to 24 hours after ingestion).
TAKE CONTROL + BUILD IMMUNE SYSTEM + AGGRESSIVE THERAPY + MAINTAIN HEALTH = LONG TERM SURVIVAL
1-Take control Do not rush to treatment; it’s no time to panic. – Learn everything about your disease – Understand how you heal from illness – Research all therapies available – Research treatment clinics and doctors – Research support groups Find a doctor to work with you (2-4 opinions) – Who has an immuno therapy background – Who will answer all your questions – Who communicates well – Who welcomes your input and offers hope – Who will give 5 referrals of 5 year survivors Explore your reasons and purpose to live – Ask questions about your life and future – Ask what lifestyle changes you must make
2-Build immune system Work with a physician and natural care practitioner Ensure high quality Nutrition – Juice raw vegetables and fruits – Eliminate sugar, alcohol, and caffeine – Eliminate red meat – Use high quality vitamins and minerals Detoxify your Body – Test for and eliminate toxins in the body – Replace dental amalgams and root canals – Keep blood pH levels alkaline Lose weight if overweight Eliminate Stress – Simplify your life – Eliminate negative environments/thoughts – Develop a positive attitude – Explore art, music, and meditation Exercise – At least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week – 5-6 hours before bedtime Sleep a minimum of 8 “quality” hours nightly – Consult a sleep clinic if you have problems
3-Aggressive therapy Immuno Therapy Proven Safest-Most Effective Evaluate merits of chemotherapy and radiation – Can suppress or destroy your immune system – Reduces quality of life and longevity – Recovery can take years – Use fractional doses as a last resort Use minimal surgery to reduce/eliminate tumor Pursue your choice of therapy aggressively – Combination of treatments most effective – Choose a program that fits your beliefs – Believe in the program you choose Make body a hostile environment for disease – Totally eliminate stress; get plenty of rest – Juice, detox, exercise, and meditate Believe in your body’s ability to heal itself – Learn to visualize your body as healthy – Explore and develop your spiritual nature – Believe in the power of prayer – Dedicate everything you do to wellness
4-Maintain health Maintain total control of your healing process Change your lifestyle to support your healing Ensure regular checkups and tests Continue learning about your disease Maintain a strong immune system Continue spiritual development Continue developing a positive attitude Avoid stress, resolve conflict, and meditate Maintain quality rest and sleep cycles Maintain a high quality nutritional program Maintain a detoxification program Continue daily exercise program Attend support group meetings Trust the healing process and “Live Life Well!”
WHAT CHOICES WILL YOU MAKE? If you are reading these words, you are looking for a way to better health and overcoming disease. Dr. Warner’s approach to cancer therapy developed over 40 years of observing what he saw as the failure of conventional medical treatments (chemotherapy and radiation) to prolong life or provide quality of life. Surviving cancer and living life well is a process of: * Taking Control of Your Life * Building Your Immune System * Aggressive Therapy * Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle
It’s our birthright to live life free of disease. We come into this world with the physical blueprint to live 150 years. What we do to ourselves cuts this time in half and, for many, much more. Through lifestyle modification you, with a supportive physician, can reverse the carcinogenic process. It can be as simple as changing your diet or as complex as a combination of selective surgery, immunotherapy, diet and exercise. Your personal belief system will determine the choices you make. With knowledge and the right attitude you can make the choices necessary to improve your condition and live the healthy life you want.
Success however, is based on two fundamental questions you must answer: Are you willing to accept responsibility for your healing? Will you put into practice the choices you make in order to create a positive outcome?
