Doll made of liver cancer cells

Many proponents of alternative medicine claim that surgical removal of cancer is very dangerous because it will cause the cancer to spread. Therefore, they strongly advise against any kind of surgery in case of cancer.

On Tony Isaacs’s Curezone, a forum member is asking advice on how to treat advanced liver cancer. The patient in question – the forum member’s mother – has previously undergone surgery. But according to Tony Isaacs it is precisely surgery that causes cancer to metastasize:

Statutory Regulation Of Alternative Medicine: What Good Will It Do?

registrationIn the UK, statutory regulation of practitioners of herbal medicine and acupuncture has been advocated by a House of Lords’ Select Committee and by three subsequent Dartment of Health (DH) working groups as well as the vast majority of respondents to a previous DH consultation on this subject (the Pittilo consultation and report). The NIMH is strongly in support of statutory regulation of this sector. They feel that only statutory regulation of this sector can enable the public to identify qualified practitioners and maintain the availability of a full range of herbal medicines in herbal practice. The same discussion is going on in other countries, the Netherlands for example. For our Dutch readers: click here.

Is it true that statutory regulation will protect the public against the risks of alternative medicine?  Many people think not and we agree with them. The pitfalls and downsides of the suggested regulations have been aptly described in a submission that was sent to the Pittilo consultation. You can read it here. There is a summary on DC’s Improbable Science, as well as extensive information on the Pittilo consultation.

Corinne Thos, Victim of Hamer’s German New Medicine, Dies at 41

In 2003, at 41, dance teacher Corinne Thos was diagnosed with breast cancer.

She underwent  a few cycles of chemotherapy, but then decided to stop all standard treatments on the advice of a psychotherapist who frequented her dance school and with whom she had become friendly. He convinced her to put her fate in the hands of the ‘Nouvelle Medécine’ – the French version of the German New Medicine of Ryke Geerd Hamer – which claims it can cure cancer without any form of standard treatment. Sadly, this proved fatal.
