In this issue we take a bold step and address the subject of cancer, presenting a number of holistic, alternative therapies to this disease of modern civilization. We are not alleging to provide “cures.” That would constitute an irresponsible claim. Nevertheless, many people do “recover” using holistic alternatives, sometimes used in conjunction with conventional treatments, but more often on their own.
It is the person diagnosed with cancer who must make the decision as to the type of treatment he or she thinks best. No one else can make this decision. All that friends and family members can do after a diagnosis of cancer is provide information. Unfortunately, accurate information on alternative treatments is hard to come by, and most doctors put great pressure on the frightened patient to adhere to the allopathic treatments of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. We hope that the information contained in this issue will provide the cancer patient with a better platform on which to base a decision.
A diagnosis of cancer often serves as a wake-up call, an alarm bell that urges the patient and his family to reconsider every aspect of their lifestyle—diet, therapies, environment, work, relationships, daily schedule and even thinking patterns. Our focus is on the diet, showing the need for whole, clean foods, properly prepared, and helping people obtain these foods. The nutrient-dense Wise Traditions diet should be the first defense against all disease, but especially cancer; non-toxic therapies added to this diet make for powerful medicine.
The hows and whys of nutrient-dense food will be the focus of our upcoming conference, the 18th annual Wise Traditions conference, held in Minneapolis. In addition to your favorite returning speakers—such as Natasha Campbell-McBride, Chris Masterjohn, Stephanie Seneff and Tom Cowan—offering 16 new talks, this conference boasts 19 new speakers. We look forward to presenting really cutting-edge information on hormone health—our main theme—and many other topics, including fertility, dental health, nutrition for the eyes and brain, digestive health, diabetes and weight loss, as well as more practical topics such as food preparation, farming and gardening.
For those needing to watch their budgets, we have many options, from one-day tickets to passes without meals to work scholarships. We can help you arrange room shares and ride shares. As always, we provide a children’s program and of course, delicious, nutritious meals. For further information and to register, visit wisetraditions.org.
One more thing: Fall is the time for our annual fundraising campaign. WAPF does a lot with a little and does not accept any funding from corporations or the government, but we do need extra help to keep all our programs going. We welcome donations of any size. See page 45 for a fundraising envelope.
