Cure for Cancer:
on the Cure for Cancer
Dr. Ben Kim
short time ago, a visiting relative asked my wife and me what we thought about
the idea that the cure for cancer was already established, but was being hidden
from the general public for various reasons. Being a pharmaceutical sales representative,
her idea of the cure for cancer was a drug or procedural treatment that could
be received from a doctor, and used right away to experience a complete recovery
question was an important reminder for me, as I usually do not focus on the reality
that a good number of people in our society -- perhaps the vast majority -- believe
in cures that come in expensive packaging or from skilled hands in the operating
take a moment to consider the many fund-raising campaigns that exist to support
doctors and scientists who are working on cures to many different types of cancer
and other chronic, degenerative health challenges. I'm not questioning the sincerity
and motives of such doctors and scientists, as I have no doubt that some of them
are passionate about discovering cures to different health conditions. I'm only
pointing out that a belief in quick-fix cures exists in virtually all pockets
is the gist of what I shared with our visiting relative:
is no such thing as a cure for any health condition, or if there are cures for
specific diseases, then these cures cannot last for more than the few seconds
that it takes for you to have a thought or to feel anything.
is because each of the trillions of cells that make up your body is constantly
changing in its health status according to your ongoing thoughts and emotions.
If this reality is difficult for you to believe or comprehend, or if you feel
that your thoughts and emotions do not have significant influence over your physical
health, then please consider the following examples of the ability that your thoughts
and emotions have to produce real physical change in your body:
- Tiny hairs on
your arms and neck rising when you are suddenly frightened
when you feel shy or embarrassed
when you think about eating something tasty or bitter
changes associated with modified blood flow when aroused by thoughts of being
physically intimate with your partner, the most obvious ones being engorgement
of a man's penis and a woman's clitoris
as your thoughts and/or emotions in the examples above lead to physical change
in your body, every thought and emotion that you have as you go about your daily
activities is making a contribution to the health state of each of your cells.
This is why Dr. Deepak Chopra says that your body is never the exact same at two
different moments in time - your body is constantly changing. Dr. Chopra likens
this dynamic, ever-changing state to the idea that you can never step into the
same river twice because a single point in a river is never composed of the same
molecules of water at two moments in time.
let's imagine that "the cure" for breast cancer is discovered today. From the
very first second after a man or woman's breast cancer is cured, his or her cells
will continue to be influenced by the thought and emotional patterns that were
in place when the breast cancer was originally created. Unless the cured person
understands this and works hard to choose thought and emotional patterns that
support rather than deteriorate health, chances are good that the breast cancer
will return, or that some other degenerative disease will develop in its place.
remember that the moment-to-moment choices that you make on which foods to put
into your body, how much rest to get, how much physical activity to engage in,
how much fresh air and sunlight you are exposed to, and what types of personal
care and household products you use act along with your ongoing
thoughts and emotions to determine how healthy each of your cells are. So any
cure that you experience with cancer or another health condition will last only
as long as all of your choices support optimal health.
of the above can be summarized in this way: your body is designed to produce
perfectly appropriate consequences to every choice that you make in life.
Each of your choices -- including the thought and emotional patterns that you
choose to engage in -- are creating the health or health challenge(s) that you
experience each day.
find this principle of there being perfectly appropriate consequences to every
choice that we make to be incredibly empowering, as it reminds me that I am the
chief architect of my own health and life. There may be times when I feel that
my circumstances and genetics are daunting and unfair, but every new moment in
front of me is a golden opportunity to think or behave in a way that will help
to make the vision that I have for my health and life a reality.
I suppose that I believe that the cure for cancer and every other health challenge
involves doing the best that we can to take care of our health on a daily basis.
No other "cure" can provide as much peace of mind over the short or long term.
And isn't peace of mind the best cure that any of us can hope to experience?
