Cure for cancer??

Okay, this may sound stupid and whatnot. but just last night my friend and i were having a huge discussion on whether there is a cure for cancer or not. he says there is a cure for cancer, and that what he's studying say there is. I say technically speaking, there is no cure for cancer. sure it can be treated and suppressed, but never FULLY cured. cancer is a genetic defect, you cant really cure it right?? yes i agree that depending on the stage and area the cancer has affected it can be removed, but as of today 8-14-08 there is no cure for cancer right??? i dont mind if i'm wrong... but i cant get a direct answer... cancer is pretty broad. to say that there is a cure for cancer would be a bit much.. or am i just stupid?? i thought it depended on what type, what stage, the area affected.. etc. it can be treated and suppressed and removed... but never FULLY cured. or am i wrong?

Hi. You are right when you say that the potential for curing cancer depends on the type of cancer and the stage of the disease.  But it is incorrect to say that there is no cure for cancer, and that it can only be treated and suppressed but not fully cured.  In fact, certain types of cancer, such as basal cell skin cancer or testicular cancer, are eminently curable.  Certain cancer types, such as breast and colorectal cancer, can be cured when treated at the early stages.  With the advancement in cancer medicine over the last five years, we now have a lot more options for effecting cures in cancer types which previously were untreatable.  However, with certain cancers, like pancreatic or lung cancer, treatment is still far from satisfactory.

I say cancer can be cured/supressed, provided this pranayam is continued for rest of life, to stop cancer from recurring. You do this pranayam and come back to report what you feel after after 9 days. So simple and yet so powerful. One day you will be able to help someone, as you will have experienced the health benefit, even if you think you are healthy.
This is the free alternative to chemotherapy for cancer patients.Do it and you will know from the future test results.You can also do it alongside any medical treatment.
Cancer hates oxygen and cannot live in a high-oxygen environment.If you want to supplement the medical treatment you receive(or not receive) with some alternative therapy then this is for you. You need to help your body to build up your immune system.The breathing exercises - pranayam is a holistic approach creating extra oxygen supply in the body and will slowly help with the health problem.Do the pranayam to see the benefits.Build up your timing slowly and after four weeks at the suggested maximum duration you will start to notice benefits gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy,stop and resume later.
What is known: pranayam helps the body heal itself. How it works in the body is not known – but people may build their own theory. You have to do it yourself for your benefit.
The small print: Keep doing pranayam after you are better for minimum 30 minutes a day for rest of life to maintain health.

People who have been treated successfully, should do pranayam as well, as there is a chance of recurrence.


The pranayam techniques:
Bhastrika - Take a long deep breath into the lungs(chest not tummy) via the nose and then completely breathe out through the nose.Duration upto 5 minutes.

Kapalbhati -(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second. Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and do for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day.(Max 60 min/day) Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently.

Anulom Vilom - Close your right nostril with thumb and deep breath-in through left nostril  
then – close left nostril with two fingers and breath-out through right nostril  
then -keeping the left nostril closed  deep breath-in through right nostril
then - close your right nostril with thumb and breath-out through left nostril.
This is one cycle of anulom vilom.
Repeat this cycle for 20 to 30  minutes twice a day(maximum 60 minutes in one day).
You can do this before breakfast/lunch/dinner or before bedtime or in bed.Remember to take deep long breaths into the lungs.You can do this while sitting on floor or chair or lying in bed.

Bhramri Pranayam -Close eyes. Close ears with thumb, index finger on forehead, and rest three fingers on base of nose touching eyes. Breathe in through nose. And now breathe out through nose while humming like a bee.
Duration : 5 to 10 times

Only by doing you will benefit and will feel good that you can do something to help the body.Copy and print this to improve your technique and stay focused.This is  simplified pranayam for everyone and you do not have to go to classes to learn. This is for life, unlike short term classes where you do it in the class then stop when classes are over.
