As a homoeopath and an individual who was sent home to die with Hodgkin's some 25 years ago (I declined), I found your recent Cancer Conference interesting and thought provoking.
There was insufficient time to ask the question I wanted to ask, so might I now ask my question here?
It is simply this: While any form of oxygen therapy is both logical and wooing, given the nature of the reaction of cells of different types to oxygen, and while all of the relatively hi tech treatments outlined at the conference seem to make a great deal of sense, why is the obvious and low tech solution not being applied either alongside, or instead of?
The body has an in built mechanism of getting oxygen to cells it's called breathing. Given the oxygen depleted air that we breathe and, most importantly, the fact that the majority of people hypoventilate, why not simply teach people how to breathe correctly, perhaps with the use of biofeedback to break old breathing habits? It would have the additional benefit of helping to bring back the correct pH balance to the body, so woefully lacking in many people.
Equally important, it would involve the patient very personally in his own climb back to health through readily obtainable, non invasive and non toxic means. Frank Meredith, The Health Consultancy, Brixham, Devon,....
