Lung Cancer: Perspectives of Medical Science and Holistic Healing

Lung Cancer: Perspectives of Medical Science and Holistic Healing

Lung Cancer
Perspectives of Medical Science and Holistic Healing
Lung cancer is the second most common cancer that we have encountered.  In this book the author documented some the cases irrespective of their responses to the herbs.  Perhaps there are positive or negative lessons that we all can learn from.

Most of the patients who come and seek our help have seen their doctors and have received the necessary treatments.  They now seek another alternative as a last resort.

Man is not just a machine.  He is also a spiritual being.  To achieve complete healing we need to heal the whole body – the physical, the mind and the spirit.  If we cannot heal the mind we cannot heal the body.  When the mind and the spirit are at peace, then physical healing starts within us.  Taking herbs is no magic unto itself – herbs cannot heal us until we have the frame of mind that wants to be healed.

I believe that the challenge of human society today is to be open-minded enough to accept the healing wisdom of both the Western world and the traditions of our Eastern forefathers.  Learn and benefit from them.  To me, it does not matter whether it is the medicine of the West or the East that brings about healing.  The most important is the treatment helps and heals.

. . . I present you with as much information as possible regarding lung cancer. . . . what I say here is based on  my readings of medical literature.  These are what the medical experts have to say about lung cancer. . . .
All of us have the privilege to seek knowledge and truth.  Only on the basis of such knowledge can we make wise decisions.  It is for this very purpose that I write this book.

The comments on the current medical treatments for lung cancer may seem to be direct, harsh etc.  . . . The medical experts themselves express their opinion . . . I also advise cancer patients to make decisions wisely, after having considered informed opinions. . . . Most of us should know and be aware that medical science and any healing systems have both strengths and weaknesses, and there is that much they can do and no  more.

Chapter 6  The Medical Treatment of Lung Cancer
A newspaper report When Radiation Therapy may Prove Harmful (New Straits Times, 9 August 1998) carried this message: The practice of exposing lung cancer patients to radiation therapy after surgery to remove tumours may do more harm than good.  It should not be used routinely.  This comment was based on a research report in The Lancet Vol. 352:25July 1998, which stated that the role of post-operative radiotherapy in those patients with completely resected non-small cell lng cancer remains unclear.  The study showed . . .

The word chemotherapy strikes dread in the hearts and minds of most cancer patients.  The most commonly asked question is: Should I go for chemotherapy or not? . . .  It is worthy noting that shrinkage of tumour does not in any way mean a cure.  Also depending on physical conditions, some cancer patients can die as a result of the treatment rather than from the cancer itself.

Chapter 7  The Herbal Treatment of Lung Cancer
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the lungs are delicate organs.  They require moistening and are prone to attacks by pathogenic factors. . . . it is important that they are moistened and their Qi reinforced.
