Changing Perspective: Choosing Alternative Treatment

perspective 1.jpg

Today we would like to address one of the most frequent conversations that arises when we first come in contact with potential patients. Oftentimes, we are the introduction to alternative cancer treatment because we are usually contacted after a potential patient has undergone traditional therapies such as chemotherapy or radiation.

We have found that the people we talk to about coming to CMN have a tendency to feel pressure: from their families, to make a traditional medicine-based decision… from their insurance, to choose a cost-effective program… and from their cancer, to make a decision fast. We are writing this blog in the hopes of reassuring you and removing the anxiety of choice. We know and understand how intimidating the unknown can be, and we want this to be a supportive resource you can turn to that reaffirms your power: you know yourself better than anyone else, and you are in complete control of your body and health. Alternative cancer treatment is a credible option and one that you should genuinely consider. We are going to break down the science that explains how we learn to adapt to new perspectives, and how science affirms the validity of our alternative cancer treatments.

The Science of Adapting to Change

We change daily, and oftentimes without notice. We may leave the house a minute later than intended because we subconsciously check our appearance in the mirror one last time; we may decide to rearrange the order of our daily chores, or that we no longer like the taste of a certain dish. These changes seem to go on relatively swiftly, and without protest. However, there are also changes that occur in our life that we struggle to adapt to.

For example, we may experience nervousness when we move out of our parents’ house for the first time, or when we are contemplating the decision to go against tradition and engage in alternative cancer treatments. Our reasoning for moving out, or abandoning traditional medicine are rooted in logic: we want to grow up and mature, and the traditional treatments aren’t working. The phenomenon that describes how we change our minds in these types of circumstances is known as brain plasticity. “Brain plasticity, also known as neuroplasticity, is a term that refers to the brain's ability to change and adapt as a result of experience. When people say that the brain possesses plasticity, they are not suggesting that the brain is similar to plastic. Neuro represents neurons, the nerve cells that are the building blocks of the brain and nervous system, and plasticity refers to the brain's malleability.”[1]

To further break this down, recall that “the human brain is composed of approximately 86 billion neurons;” plasticity allows our brain to renew and reorganize the structure of neurons indefinitely. 1This validates the claim that we are evolving human beings with the remarkable ability to change in response to life experiences as well as internal and external stimuli. 

Relating this back to choosing alternative cancer treatment over traditional medicine, research supports the notion that we are consistently evolving, but change isn’t effortless. Major decisions and the changes that they bring about require us to be mindful and trusting; there needs to be a period of time for you to adapt to the ‘new.’ Allow yourself the time you need, and rely on your support system; they are truly there for you and want to support you in the decisions that you make. Have faith in the fact that you know yourself best. You want what is best, not only for you but for the people around you, and just because something is not traditional does not mean that it is invalid or lacks credibility. 

Alternative Cancer Treatment: How We’re Different

CMN has posted extensively about our treatments: you can view our treatment summary here

CMN works hard in order to stay on top of the newest research and medical advances that help fight your cancer aggressively. We see health for the whole picture: rather than just fighting the cancer cells, we also incorporate treatments that stimulate your own body’s healing powers. We incorporate science that has been proven consistently for decades. For example, the immune system fights off disease; as such, we incorporate Vitamin C into our treatments in a way that boosts your immunity and helps your body fight the cancer alongside our other therapies. 

What makes us different, and a leader in alternative cancer treatment, is that we do not just target the disease: we stand by comprehensive care that helps you heal and grow emotionally and mentally as well. Our doctors and nursing staff see you as an individual, not a medical chart. We stand by our ability to treat you with the utmost level of respect, professionalism, and kindness, but we go further: because we know how important your support system is, we make ourselves available for you to lean on, talk to, and grow with. We are there for you every step of the way, and we are consistently working to cultivate the strongest doctor-patient bond possible. You are the leader of your health, and the captain of this team, and we want to help you get your health back!
