Would you get chemotherapy?
90% of Doctors would refuse chemotherapy as a treatment because of its low success rate, and with all the free cures: Raw Beets, Baking Soda, Calcium, Colloidal Silver why would you choose chemotherapy as an option or why not?
I had stage III colon cancer at age 42. I trusted my doctors. I had radiation, chemo and then surgery. Followed by more chemo. 14 years later, I am still cancer free and qualify for the highest rating for life insurance. I had a few side effects, but nothing serious and was given a good prognosis if I participated in the therapy.
It was the right choice for me, for the right cancer, at the right time in my life. If I had a different cancer (such as pancreatic cancer), I may have refused the therapy. If my prognosis was grim even with aggressive therapy, I would not do it. If it was something like a chemo that can change your 6 month survival from 15% to 25%. I think I would go to Disney instead.
Everyone is different, every cancer is different. You get all of the information you can and make the best choice for you and your family. Sometimes you stay in the game, sometimes you have to recognize the inevitable and know when to fold.
No, I'd never accept chemo. It's poison. It kills more patients than it cures. And chemo has been proven effective on only a small number of rare cancers.
I would go for the alternative therapies. I don't trust anything that is created by Big Pharma.
For a short-term, quick fix, I'd go to a doctor. But for long term health maintenance, I would be crazy to trust the Rockefeller funded school type of doctor.
Big Pharma has one purpose -- increase profits -- and cures are not part of that business model.
