PERSPECTIVE— 

Doc and Dr. Jenn Simmons discuss A Different Perspective on breast cancer, mammograms, and mastectomies. Are they really as helpful as we’re led to believe? 

  • The tumor is not the problem. It is the symptom of the problem. 
  • Why does a person get breast cancer? 
  • Cancer is a normal response to an abnormal environment. 
  • Not everyone wants to help themselves because they don’t want to blame themselves if it doesn’t work. It’s so much easier to blame the system that failed you.  

The way breast cancer is handled often leads to chronic conditions. 

  • There are several different breast cancers, but they’re all treated the same—aggressively. 
  • The medical field uses fear to have people undergo therapies that all have long-term adverse effects and no long-term gain. 
  • Chemotherapy, anti-hormonal therapy, and radiation all accelerate cardiovascular disease — the #1 threat to a woman’s life. The number of people who die from cardiovascular disease dwarfs the deaths from breast cancer. 
  • Curing one problem and creating another: 
    • Cardiovascular disease  
    • Neurological disease 
    • Increases Alzheimer’s and dementia  
    • Depression 
    • Anxiety 
    • Pathological fractures 

The intent is always fantastic. That’s not enough. 

  • The only thing that saves lives is living better. 
  • Most of the risk factors given for breast cancer are not true. 
  • Medicine, even if it’s life-saving, is still a toxin. 
  • What’s changed in the past few generations—DNA or the environment? 
  • Everyone gets a treatment plan; what everyone needs is a health plan. 
  • Cancer isn’t due to a chemo or radiation deficiency. 
  • You have to mop the floor (radiation, chemo), but why is your sink overflowing? Let’s figure out how to turn off the faucet.
