The Roots of Health – Healing Cancer with Biological Medicine
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells, and the American Cancer Society suggests that it can be treated with things like surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, immune therapy, and targeted therapy – or drugs that interfere with cancer cell growth. These are the primary options that are presented to us in America. These treatments are designed to target and kill the cancer as if it was an isolated unit in our body. And none of these treatments are without side effects, which are often worse than housing the cancer itself.
Today I wanted to introduce to you an alternate approach to healing cancer. Biological medicine is not some new-age-woo-woo philosophy, it’s a real science and it’s based on the biology and physiology of the human being down to the cellular level. It is understanding that we are nature, that all of our systems are interconnected, that we’re unique individuals, that we each have our own story, and therefore our own unique healing journey.
Last week, I interviewed Dayna Baumeister of Biomimicry 3.8 and organization that looks to nature to solve modern human problems (listen here). During my conversation with Dayna, I found out that she was diagnosed with breast cancer 2 years ago. Dayna, using a biomimicy approach, had the insight to ask nature how she would solve this problem… this is the story about how Dayna successfully healed her body using Biological Medicine.
Her story covers her visit with her oncologist, her decision to choose a biological approach to heal her cancer rather than a conventional (or industrial – as she calls it) approach, what happened to her during her 3-week healing journey, and what has changed about how she lives her life today.
Ultimately – you should be aware that your body is designed by nature to heal itself… and biological medicine is an approach that characterizes your unique, interdependent human body for the purposes of designing an individualized healing program for you.
