In order to understand human capacity to defeat this disease, let’s start from the end, that is, from the consequence. Today cancer is still believed to occur as a consequence of physical, chemical, and biological factors.
Moreover, medical experts believe cancer development is also rooted in people’s individual features. Specifically, the list of traits includes the following:
- dietary habits
- bad habits
- race and ethnicity
- hereditary genetic predisposition
- excess weight
- diseases associated with pathologies in the immune system
- and finally, pregnancy.
And now, pay really close attention to my reasoning.
Medical experts claim that existence one of the aforementioned factors or features increases the probability of cancer. The disease, meanwhile, can have various zones of focalization (location) and therefore also various symptoms (manifestation). Yet common to all types of cancer is the appearance of malignant cells. This is the consequence evident to both the doctors and the patients.
At first glance it seems really simple: there are causes (factors and features) and there is an effect of these causes, cancer. It follows that by eliminating the cause one could eliminate the effect. But in most cases that is impossible to do. How would one eliminate physical, chemical, and biological factors, which, today, are practically omnipresent? How would one change one’s age, race and ethnicity, and genetic predispositions? The interesting thing is that there is no need to do any of that. We all live under roughly the same external conditions, but only a very small fraction of the world’s population get cancer. So, it’s not a matter of external conditions or individual features, but instead it has to do with something else.
Few understand and attach importance to the fact that one’s genetic cancer program is adjusted throughout one’s life under the influence of one’s mindset and mentality. Hence the conclusion: it is the mindset and mentality that are the primary cause, which determines the quality of life and thus the health of each of us. Interestingly, these two elements can be corrected, but neither modern psychology nor medicine is capable of effecting this correction using currently available methods. The reason for this is that both medicine and psychology only focus on the problems that have already manifested, without affecting their systemic cause at all.
It is abundantly clear that only a systemic correction of one’s mindset and mentality can affect the genetic cancer program and thus eliminate the root cause of the disease. And when there is no cause, there is no effect. Unfortunately, it is difficult for people to do something if they don’t even know the way it should be done. This is why it is crucial to find a specialist who possesses the knowledge and skills in solving such problems.
