Suspect Colorectal Cancer – No Medical Intervention Please!

"I have great respect for western medicine – but for cancer, I do not have much confidence in western medicine. The end results were not encouraging, in fact many cases ended up in disaster. I wanted to try the herbs. I was not hopeless or helpless. " These were words of Dr. Daniel (not real name), a member of the medical profession.

Daniel came from a family of 11 siblings but currently only two of them (he and his younger brother) are still alive, the rest passed away. Three of his brothers and a sister had cancer.

In September 2003, Daniel started to have "stomach winds." He lost weight and his bowel habits changed. He brushed off this problem as insignificant and took "deworming" medication, hoping that the problem would go away. Unfortunately the problem became more serious. He came to seek our help in March 2004, and was started on herbs coupled changing to a healthy diet. His health improved and he has been on this healing path for the past three years.

Being medically trained, we find it strange that from the beginning he flatly refused to seek medical help, even declining to go for a colonoscopy or blood test.

On 9 November 2006, we had a frank talk with Dr. Daniel. The following are excerpts of our conversation.

Question: How old are you now?

Answer by Daniel: I am now 75 years plus.

Q: Could you tell us how your problem started?

A: Basically my blood pressure was okay – 120/80 or sometimes 110/70. Both my sugar and cholesterol levels were okay too. Before my retirement (from a government job, heading a division in the health services) I could eat anything I liked. I ate but I did not put on weight. When I was about 70/71 years old, I found it a bit hard to sleep. When I was 72 years old (that is 3 years ago), I started to have stomach problem. It was like indigestion and winds. In the beginning the problem was not so bad. On certain days I was alright but on certain days I had winds. My stools were either loose or watery and sometimes foamy.

Q: Any blood?

A: No, blood – so far no blood.

Q: Basically, your bowel movements and habits changed?

A: Yes, before that it was natural despite sometimes I had constipation.

Q: How often did you have this stomach winds?

A: From March 2004 onwards the winds became more frequent and that was the time I came to see you. Actually from September 2003, I already started to have winds but it was not so bad, even though it was not like before. In the earlier years I could eat anything I like. I liked to go for hawkers' food. But in September 2003, my problem started. Before this time I had no problem taking any kind of food – there was no wind problem.

Q: You said at the beginning it was not bad, but in March 2004, it became more serious?

A: From March 2004, the problem became more often. Sometimes, I would have diarrhea for the whole day. Then I was okay for a day or two and then had dirrhea again.

Q: In March 2004, you said you did not feel good – what did you do then?

Wife: He came to see you but the daughter (who is a medical specialist) told him to go for a scope.
A: I talked to my daughter about this problem. She asked me to go for a colonoscopy and see what could be the problem. It could be due to polyps. I did not want to do that. I knew about your herbs, since many people have been coming to see you and it appeared the herbs helped. So I came to see you but I did not tell my daughter about this.

Q: Did you do any blood test?

A: So far, only once. At first my daughter suspected the problem was due to worms because the eosinophil was elevated – which could indicate worm infection. I took deworming medication but the problem persisted. So when I came to see you, you gave me Capsule A, GI 1 and GI 2.

Q: Knowing that you were medically trained and so was your daughter – now that you have encountered a problem like this which is not a good sign – by right, it is good to go for medical treatment, for example a colonoscopy, etc ., Etc. But you declined to do all these. Tell us frankly and honestly, the reasons why you did not want to go and see the doctors?

A: It was not because I did not want to do it. I have heard about your herbal treatment and also some cases of recovery and the results were encouraging. On the other hand, in western medicine for cancer – for other diseases it is different, I have great respect for western medicine – as far as I can see it, so many cases the end results were not encouraging, in fact many cases Ended up in disaster, even after going through those treatment like chemotherapy. Because of that I wanted to try the herbs and may be it will work for me.

Q: Before you knew us and had seen what we have done, did you ever believe in the herbs?

A: No, never. I would go for western medicine. But based on my experience with my brothers, they died of cancer. Then, I had a cousin who was a retired matron of a hospital. She too died of cancer after undergoing two operations for her colon cancer and had chemotherapy. So as for cancer, I did not have much confidence in western medicine.

Q: In March 2004, you came to us and were started on the herbs. Now it is November 2006 – it has been 2 years and 8 months now.

Wife: Yes and he is as strong as before.
A: Yes, I feel good. I can now take more kinds of food without any problem. My appetite is better.

Q: Taking every thing together, after being on the herbs for 2 plus years, are you better off or worse off?

A: Yes, I am better off. My stamina is better. I can swim – like breast strokes, even one mile would be no problem.
Wife: He can swim non-stop!
Q: In September 2003, when you started to have this problem, could you swim like that?

A: I could also swim but the stamina was not that good.

Q: What about your weight?

A: It has increased by 1 to 2 pounds since the past two plus years. There was no loss in weight. Between September 2003 and March 2004 (before taking the herbs) I was losing weight, besides my stamina was going down.

Comments: Gurdjieff wrote: "The wise man is not educated, and the educated man is not wise." This saying seems to be often true in life. It would be wonderful indeed if the educated man is also wise – it makes the world a better place to live in! In this story, Dr. Daniel is an educated man and he is also a wise man – and the result? He made a sensible decision that perhaps had "saved" his life.

Dr. Daniel is schooled in the medical tradition. He was taught that a drug has to go a placebo-controlled double blind clinical study before evidence of efficiency is acceptable. Anything short of this requirement is "bunked off" as unacceptable or quackery. Anecdotal evidence, no matter how true and relevant, is never acceptable or taken seriously as evidence. Perhaps such hard-line thinking only belong to the educated man? For him to defend the "turf" or protect his "rice bowl"?

Dr. Daniel saw for himself what had happened to his loved ones after they had undergone treatment for their cancers using the so-called FDA-approved and "proven" drugs. Yet they died. When his turn came to make a decision about his own treatment, Dr. Daniel did not have confidence in modern medicine! He relied on his own wisdom and saw for himself what was going around him. He said: "I have heard about your herbal treatment and also some cases of recovery and the results were encouraging. On the other hand, in western medicine for cancer – as far as I can see it, for so many cases the end results were Not encouraging, in fact many cases ended up in disaster. Because of that I wanted to try the herbs and may be it will work for me. " In short, Dr. Daniel believed in anecdotal evidence.

I read a news report somewhere, sometime ago, about an oncologist in a renovated hospital in the US, who started to advocate complementary therapy for his patients after his wife who had breast cancer benefited from such unorthodox therapy. Indeed, personal experience makes a wise man. I tend to wonder if those hard-line proponents of this double blind study ever have their own loved ones suffering from cancer. If they do, after the "battle", I wonder if they ever reflect and question the ratione of what is going on. Is there any wisdom in what is being done? There is a saying: "None are so blind as those who have eyes and see not, and none are so deaf as those who have ears and hear not."
