“We don’t believe in looking at life through rose tinted spectacles, but equally we refuse to look at life through fear smear glasses. For us, it’s about facts, about balance; and balance can only come when fear is resolved and facts are revealed”.
Cancer is one of the most misunderstood, hyped diseases that is laden with fear. Often the fear is so great that it leaves ittle or no room for facts. It is the almost palpable fear that takes over. It is the fear that does great damage. Even when you survive the physical symptoms
you still can’t seem to live a life. For many, in the instant of
"Sorry… it’s cancer …"
that’s it, life over. Though you see the statistics and despite the facts that for your type of cancer there is a proven high recovery rate, you still believe it's going to 'get you'.
Why is it that you see yourself as the unlucky one who is going to die? What makes you stop thinking that you could be one of the so called "lucky" few who truly get rid of it once and for all? Why can’t you be the one who fully recovers from cancer? For the majority of other diseases,
once you have been told you have a good chance of recovery you believe your doctor, so why is cancer different?
Science-wise it is one of the most frustrating areas, with many apparently contradictory papers and published data. Most people only get to hear the headline and have no means of accessing the exact experimental data and conditions – which fuels this whole thick “fog” of confusion. The
relay of advice at times seems so contradictory and confusing that it often results in inaction, or worse, apathy.
Often the Media does not help, with dramatic and fear laden headlines. The result is that Science is turned into a fearful affair that takes away your power. The true purpose of Science is to empower and enrich your life, not be the vehicle and means to induce impossible levels of fear,
frustration and confusion; knowledge is power: but little knowledge out of context, just like ignorance, can cost lives.
We also seem to live in very divided times where it is an “either / or” approach; You either go down the Orthodox route or the Alternative. What we seem to lack and what we really need is a joined up approach.
What really makes us at NakedGJ really “mad as hell” is that so many want to “prove” their theories – whether it is ego that gets in the way, or some other reason behind the “Evangelism”, many forget that there is a human being in the middle; and their life is at stake. Patients can actually
end up feeling guilty – as if they have to take sides and actually in doing so they miss out some of the things that can really benefit them – not to mention the guilt they feel and the frustration of not knowing which road to take. They are faced with a choice that at times seems an impossible
one to make. The stress that this causes – considering what we already know in terms of stress and its role in recovery, can undo the efforts they have been trying to put in.
We tend to ditch the old knowledge in favour of the “new” – there is a wealth of information there, that could be extremely useful. If we combine it with the technology that is available to us now and with what we know from our “new” science, we can make something that is much bigger than the
sum of its parts.
Why throw the baby out with the bath water? Why not take the parts that work forward and leave the parts that don’t behind? Unfortunately, we get hung up on rigid “in the box” territorial theories and practices when history tells us that often the best discoveries in science have been the result
of thinking “outside the box”. We are trying to ask questions that fit in an existing theory.
"True Science is about making observations and making new theories and then setting out to ask questions to test the theory – not to ask the questions to only prove an already foregone conclusion."
But in the current climate and the current funding situation, new ideas that don’t have a predictable outcome don’t receive the funding that they need. So we end up asking the same old questions and doing things the same old way so we don’t make progress in these areas. Maybe it is simply the
matter of asking different questions.
Orthodox medicine works for some of the people some of the time, as shown by the many medical trials proving the varied efficacy of numerous medicines, treatments and therapies. And now there is a whole new field of science moving towards individual healthcare from individual DNA chips to you
name it… because we recognise that every persons biochemistry and tolerance to drugs is different. Even though we are all supposed to have the same genetic makeup – with the exception of disease susceptibility, we know that environment and the external signals affect our gene expression. So, there
are factors other than the genetic material we are born with that affect the final outcome.
We also know that some complementary therapies work for some people and not others and some Alternative treatments have been reported to have worked in certain circumstances. They are less studied in the context of orthodox medicine and science (as we practice it now), but never the less,
they have worked for some people, yet we dismiss them outright for their lack of scientific evidence.
Perhaps we are asking the wrong questions? Perhaps we don’t yet have the technology to test these in the way that we test other things?
...Perhaps more importantly this whole area of research is underfunded.
We need to move away from simply asking whether any of these categorically work or not. We need to find out for whom they work, when they work, under what conditions they work and then ask how they work. There are lots of suggestions, you only have to type “cancer treatment” into Google search
and there is a raft of treatments that people swear by. You will find powerful advocates of many theories, processes and regimes, but what you have to realise is that every cancer is different, every person is different and depending on what stage of illness you are at, your body reacts differently.
So something that has worked for someone else may or may not work for you.
Trying to figure out what to choose amongst literally thousands of different things offered to you is hugely stressful and loaded with guilt, anxiety and the fear of getting it wrong. After all, your life is at stake. In all of this, one of the biggest and probably most important issues get
left behind – and that is the matter of...
... how do you deal with the mental, psychological and emotional welfare and how do you deal with the relationship that you have with cancer, how it is affecting you, your family, your life, the fear of “it” and dreading the outcome.
You are forever looking over your shoulder and you wonder whether it is going to come back. For most people it is just not enough to be told to “think positively”, in fact it drives people to despair. It also makes you feel guilty on the days you don’t actively think about “thinking positively”.
On the one hand you are robbed of every single bit of hope – and it starts on the day you meet your consultant and you are told the statistics. Much of what you read on the internet and watch on TV reaffirms your own negative perceptions and beliefs and adds to your sense of hopelessness. On the
other hand you are being asked to wade your way through this “tar pit / treacle” of negativity and stay positive.
You may have gone to counselling and had some other psychological treatment. Many of them require you to put in so much effort at a conscious level – just to keep your head above water. Many require you to be logical when the issues often have nothing to do with logic. In fact, most people know
logically the answers to their problems – it is their irrational thoughts and fears that are the causes of their negativity and it is this that they really battle with.
...What you want is hope and positivity that is based on facts and in order to do that, you need to remove the fear.You want that positivity to come naturally and easily because you truly believe it.
Once the fear is gone and you begin to combine the understanding of how the mind and body works, with techniques that allow you to harness your natural resources to bring about change, you massively improve your emotional, mental and psychological health and potentially increase your chances or recovery.
Fear, perception and belief are directly linked to the stress response. Your stress response reacts to emotional, psychological and mental issues in the same way as it does to real physical danger. Your body is naturally hard-wired to react to stress in a way originally meant to protect you against
mainly physical threats. Whereas physical danger used to pass quickly, modern day stresses tend to be prolonged and as such keep your body in a dangerous state of alert for unhealthy periods of time. This adversely affects the functioning of various systems, organs and tissues throughout the body.
Because of this,
it is important to take conscious and proactive steps to deal with stresses, fears and limiting perceptions.
When you understand your body and your organs, in the context of their evolutionary purpose and how your mind affects them, you begin to understand what makes it weaker and how to strengthen it in a way that is compatible with its function.
Most of our modern stresses stem from these emotional, psychological and mental triggers and your perception of threats has a direct impact on how you react both at a conscious and subconscious level. The perception of cancer induces such high levels of stress and fear, that it triggers panic induced
changes in lifestyle and behaviour. Many Cancer patients, upon diagnosis feel they have to take drastic measures and often embark on extreme treatments in the hope that it will increase their chances of recovery – even when they don’t fully believe it will work for them.
It is a profound need to take back control and play an active role in their recovery. The thing about extreme measures is that they stress the body and whilst as a short term measure they might be beneficial, the long term effect might go against the evolutionary function of the different organs. Simply
put, too much of a “good” thing can be just as damaging as too much of a “bad” thing. A classic demonstration of this is Liver damage due to sustained Vitamin overdose; the intention is positive, the results are not.
Perhaps more importantly, the extreme route takes over. Life can be filled with daily rituals and routines so far removed from any sense of normality - Cancer totally takes over life. Not only does the person with Cancer have to fight the negative thoughts and keep the emotional turmoil under wraps, every
waking minute is now spent on something to do with “fighting” Cancer. Perhaps it’s no wonder then, that in spite of the many proactive efforts many patients take, they still feel totally powerless, overwhelmed and still don’t have the sense of control they so desperately need. Moreover, the failure to stick
to the unrealistic treatments regimes, diets, etc often adds another layer of misery and negative emotions, delivered so effectively as the double-charge of guilt and a sense of failure.
Orthodox, Alternative or Complementary treatments might or might not work. It is not black and white. There ARE many shades of grey in-between. What we want to do is to turn these grey areas into Golden Opportunities that are our most effective treatment in the context of cancer.
We need an all encompassing Integrative Approach that takes the best from all the efforts, technologies, processes and methodologies that are available, in a suitable context that is relevant to the individual.
In the process, taking away the fear, anger, frustrations and stresses, would also boost your immune system. The final outcome is not only better emotional, psychological and mental health, but a much better quality of life and a life that you want to live. You can get on with the business of living rather
than being a victimised survivor with a quality of life that you barely recognise as living.
Here in the UK we are lucky to have a health system that though operating within huge constraints and enormous pressures does its best to support those with Cancer. But these limitations do mean that there are some big holes in what it can and cannot provide. Some of these holes are filled by numerous Cancer
Charities, large and small, but many holes still remain. In spite of their best efforts, needs of many patients are not met and this is why many look for other treatment options. The thick fog of confusion that they experience in analysing which treatments are appropriate for them is fuelled by the often black
and white attitudes of the various ‘Camps'. Furthermore, each camp seems to only want to deal with one aspect of the patient, often forgetting that there is a whole, real human being for whom everything is connected.
We are more than the sum of our parts, physical, emotional, mental, psychological, social, spiritual and environmental factors all play their parts and they feed into each other. So why insist on only treating the most obvious parts? It’s not just about “fixing” the body, nor is it just about having a 'positive mind'.
We are like gemstones: If you want the Diamond to truly shine, it is simply not enough to polish a single facet; you have to polish every side. Only then does the Gem truly come alive.
The present system is not conducive to optimal recovery. The stresses, traumas and shocks that you experience throughout your “journey” have a profound impact upon the Biochemistry, Neurology and more importantly the Immune System. There is a vast body of published scientific research linking the effects of
stress on hampering cancer recovery and more recently new data on the causal effect of stress.
Moreover, there is a wealth of scientific publications linking psychological and subconscious studies to physical symptoms. The field of Neuroimmunopsychology demonstrates a profound link between the workings of the mind and the body.
Attention to this mind-body connection is one of the keystones in the recovery from Cancer and it is this that we focus on at The Naked Gene Juggler
