Accentuating the Positive

While we cannot precisely control our thoughts, a cancer patient must make a drastic attempt to avoid negative feelings and enhance and concentrate on positive reflections. Our immune system is what we depend on to prevent and destroy cancer. Stress depresses the immune system. Thoughts can create or eradicate stress. Many of us believe that positive thoughts can even enhance the immune system. Continue Reading…

Choices

I have thought how devastating it must be for an oncologist to give a horribly toxic treatment to a seemingly strong patient, totally destroying the quality of their life, only to find it ineffective and watch the patient die. That physician not only has my sympathy, but my admiration, providing the treatment was given with the patient’s complete understanding and at the patient’s request. Continue Reading…

Commitment

Dear Fellow Cancer Patient:

No one likes to read a lengthy letter, but maybe this will help you have a better chance of conquering your cancer and improving the quality of your life. I’m Dick Bloch. In March, 1978 I was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and given 3 months to live by an outstanding doctor. I am now healthy, cancer free, and devoting myself along with my wife, Annette, to helping the next person with cancer have the best chance of beating it. I’m not saying you can have the same success I did, but if you try, you have a chance. Continue Reading…

Fears

What is life? Without a decent quality of life or the prospect of one, life certainly is not worth living. Health, happiness, money, friends, family and numerous other aspects all go into making up quality of life, but the overall feeling is far more important than any single factor. For cancer patients, one component that often totally destroys quality of life is the fear of death. Continue Reading…

Stimulating your Immune System

The will to live is in itself an energy. It is a desire to fight for life because there is honestly something to live for. The shock and uncertainty of diagnosis causes many people to lose this and suspend living for a few weeks. The will to live will be stronger in patients who find their lives enjoyable and who have things in their lives they honestly look forward to. Continue Reading…

Increasing the Odds

It has been felt for many years that there is a relationship between the patient’s mental attitude and successful cancer treatment. A great deal of effort has been put into scientifically proving this relationship with very little definitive results. Continue Reading…

Knowledge Heals – Ignorance Destroys

Being diagnosed with cancer is the most traumatic event that can happen to an individual. Someone who has not been there cannot possibly appreciate the gravity of this event. Normally, the diagnosis comes from a visit to a physician for a supposedly innocuous illness while the patient feels relatively healthy. All of a sudden they are told it is malignant which conjures up a vision Continue Reading…

Positive Mental Attitude

A shapely 21 year old blond walking through a slum neighborhood alone at 3 am in a bikini believing she will not be molested is not a positive mental attitude.

With the disease of cancer, a positive mental attitude is not just closing your eyes to all the facts and factors and saying, “Hey, I’m going to get well.” That is wishful thinking Continue Reading…

Emergency!

For years we have preached to cancer patients to find a qualified oncologist who believed he could successfully treat you. Now, more than ever, those words are vital! Curable individuals are being told, “There is nothing that can be done” or “The treatments are worse than death.” It is terrible to believe that individuals might be dying unnecessarily Continue Reading…

Meditations to Extend and Improve Life

The following thoughts, to be read daily by a cancer patient:

  • I realize the power within me is greater for me than the power of another. That I have the power to control my thoughts and that my thoughts control my feelings and the way I see the world around me.
  • I realize that negative thoughts create negative experiences and positive thoughts create positive experiences. Therefore I now decide Continue Reading…
