Alternative Treatments For Cancer

Cancer has become a localized disease. An orthodox doctor in a traditional way aggressively attacks cancer by cutting out the tumor and flooding the body with toxic drugs. Their belief is that this is the best way to destroy the tumor. But often the cancer is still present and spreads everywhere. They fail to understand that cancer is a systemic disease and it spreads all over the body. Tumor is just the symptom for cancer and there are various alternative treatments/therapies focus on rebuilding the natural immunity of the body. By rebuilding the natural immunities, the ability to destroy cancer cells on its own gets strengthened.
