My Tryst with Cancer

I have been reading some books on Cancer Survivors – Anup Kumar (The Joy of Cancer) and Sean Swarner (Keep Climbing).  While I am not mentioning the author names, due credit goes to them in capturing the intricacies involved in the life of a cancer patient and their fight against the same.

The Epiphany was somewhat startling about these two real life incidents. Imagining about conquering of  bad cancerous cells by good cells using Visualization techniques was far more interesting than anything else. I am deliberately ignoring the numerous side effects described in these respective books. It does not necessarily mean that all of those who apply the visualization technique succeed. Some do and some don’t and it could be like a dream sequence metaphorically speaking and it always helps.  The essence is to separate your body and mind while you let the mind conquer the cellular process that involves destruction of the harmful cells and let them out of your system regardless of the crankiness of the body (sounds easier said than done right..)

In the year 1997 and earlier, Cancer was a sure automatic death in India and I personally witnessed my dad’s death due to a type of Cancer called ‘Acute Myeloid Non-Lymphocytic Leukaemia’. It was a late diagnosis and the Chemo resulted in Sepsis. The ordeal was for 2-3 months from the time of diagnosis. Today, while we say that most of the cancers are curable, the fact of the matter is that a timely diagnosis via regular health check-up is of utmost importance.  In most of the developing countries, Cancer means guaranteed death and again this depends on the type of Cancer. Awareness while not a panacea, is at-least helping several cancer types such as Breast Cancer in India. Thanks to many a Celebrities who have won their battles against Cancer, some visibility is available for rare types such as Multiple Myeloma  and Hodgkin’s etc…

Now that we have the required arsenal in the form of Alternative Medicine, Chemotherapy or Stem Cell Therapy, the key to an early detection via diagnostic tests (CBP, MRI and blah…) is of paramount importance for your entire family.

    I will also like to express that most individuals who find themselves without the need of health insurance are normally students, self-employed and people who are without a job. More than half of those uninsured are really under the age of Thirty-five. They do not experience they are in need of health insurance simply because they’re young and healthy. Their particular income is frequently spent on homes, food, plus entertainment. Some people that do work either complete or part time are not given insurance by means of their jobs so they go without owing to the rising price of health insurance in the United States. Thanks for the strategies you discuss through this blog.
