Cancer Prevention: According to the American Cancer Society 95% of cancers are NOT genetic. But the false belief that most cancers are genetically based is the reason why most people believe that they can not prevent cancer; it is also the reason why people accept today’s dismal success-rate for conventional cancer treatment.

In general, cancer would have to develop over many years to eventually be diagnosed as cancer. All that time can be used productively by taking actions for cancer prevention, but is usually wasted without any cancer prevention strategy.

Your entry-point for any prevention… gets delayed!

Waiting until it can finally be diagnosed as cancer is the problem. Is it a disease yet? Is it treatable yet by chemo or radiation? Do you have cancer? If the answer to any of these is “no,” the treatment would be the same: no treatment. Just wait and watch until one of those answers is “yes.” This is an obsolete “wait, then treat” road-map. Your entry point for any prevention intervention would get delayed until cancer would become established. Can you understand how this is a huge problem?

A sad fact is that a significant percentage of the people with a cancer diagnosis are killed by the cancer treatment itself. Why is this acceptable? The wait, then treat paradigm used by cancer doctors —waiting until it is diagnosable, followed by killing cancer cells— is still believed to be the only choice available. Cancer survivors (5 years of survival after cancer treatment, or just 1 year after lung cancer treatment) are considered to be heroes of surviving the treatment.

“Epidemiological, clinical, and laboratory investigations provide rather convincing evidence that dietary habits can modify cancer risk.” (1)

What we need is a measure of how far a person is from cancer, not how close. These are not the same thing. After taking your health history and discussing your present condition, we can use a unique blood test called a serum nagalase test, and integrate other non-invasive alternative types tests that we do in-office, to give us deep insight and guidance on the best prevention starting points. Keeping cancer far away is far superior to, and not the same as conventionally waiting for cancer to be present, while doing nothing until it appears.

Is There a “Cancer Prevention Doctor?”

Steps to preventing cancer can be taken now, instead of waiting to see if you have cancer first. Cancer prevention is not cancer treatment. Cancer prevention includes a group of lifestyle choices; keeping your body systems functioning at an optimally healthy level.

Your first obstacle is to stop believing the voice of your thoughts that you hear right now, telling you that none of this matters anyway, because cancer is genetic. That is just not true! Except for only 3 to 5% of all cancers, most cancers do not have a genetic cause. For those 5%, The American Cancer Society doesn’t even use the word “genetic” Instead, they call it: “a strong familial component.” NOT “genetic!” False beliefs are what lead to the unfortunate situation we have today: the wait for destructive cancer treatment.

Once you get past your own first obstacle, which is based on false beliefs about genetics and cancer, your next obstacle is to accept that the prevention of cancer is possible. Can you accept this idea? Can any of your friends and family? False beliefs have a very strong hold on people, and some here in Los Angeles would rather die than change their minds. Really! My advice to you is to depreciate the dogma of “there’s nothing you can do.”. Most cancer is not genetic and it doesn’t just come out of nowhere. Cancer prevention is possible. I hope you will be able to accept this concept, because it will help you to take control over your own health. So many people never give themselves this possibility, because they get stuck by those first two obstacles.

Your third obstacle is to take the appropriate action: to do something based on this new possibility of ttaking control over your own health. Something like metabolic therapy is not a do-it-yourself endeavor. Would you do it yourself if you had some other disease? Of course not. Accept the right professional guidance from someone who works with this and practices it daily. We can order your blood tests, including nagalase, or the galleri test, holistically interpret the results, and address what you need to start with; including many things that may have never even dawned upon you.

To prevent cancer in Los Angeles is to make positive lifestyle choices: it is not a treatment for cancer. It is not a treatment for a diagnosable disease, either. Instead, it is a based on optimal function, and the steps you need to take for optimal function to be more present in your own body systems. This is possible because in the overwhelming majority of cases, cancer is not caused by genetics. An optimal functioning body does not develop progressive cancer.
