Those two words conjure up images of the Grim Reaper tapping on your door with his scythe.
That’s when you might be tempted to panic… telling your doc to do EVERYHING he can… and as FAST as he can.
Of course — because you want to make sure you squeeze every last second out of life.
Do yourself a favor: Slow down, take a deep breath, and look at ALL your options.
Because new research shows once again how FAST action isn’t always the BEST action — even in cases of deadly, advanced cancers.
And if you’ve got advanced kidney cancer, quick action could lead to some quick side effects and a whole lot of misery –in many cases, without adding so much as an extra SECOND to your life.
Many kidney cancers progress very slowly, and the new study finds that’s true even after they start spreading.
Instead of treating a slow-growing advanced cancer immediately, patients who choose “active surveillance” and delay for an average of 15 months STILL manage to survive this supposedly fatal advanced cancer… for nearly FOUR YEARS.
Some people can delay treatment longer — even indefinitely — and many live well past those four years.
One cancer doc commenting on the study to the UPI news agency said he uses the watch-and-wait approach himself — and he’s got an advanced kidney cancer patient who’s still alive SEVEN YEARS LATER, despite no treatment and despite the fact that the disease has spread to the lung.
That’s not just extra years of living with cancer. It’s extra years of living WITHOUT the toxic life-ruining side effects of chemo, radiation, drugs, and surgery.
Obviously, since every cancer is different, there’s no one-size-fits-all formula of what to do if you’re diagnosed with the disease in any stage. But it’s pretty clear that you DO have options, even when you might THINK you don’t.
So take some time to sort it all out and go over every possibility with your doc.
If it looks like you can delay treatment, consider that your window of opportunity to look at OTHER options — especially natural therapies. Intravenous vitamin C, for example, can slow some tumors down so you can delay or avoid treatment. In some cases, it can even wipe the disease out.
You won’t hear about these safe and proven options from a chemo-pushing mainstream doc… but you will from a naturopathic medical doctor.
I recommend working closely with an experienced member of the American College for Advancement in Medicine.
Do it right, and you can tell that cloaked, grim villain to go knock on some other door!
