Acupuncture & other Natural Cancer Treatments – Rebalance Acupuncture

According to the Canadian cancer society, about 1 in 2 Canadians will develop cancer in their lifetimes and 1 in 4 will die of the disease. Although cancer diagnosis in many cases is connected in our mind to “a death row sentence,” 60% of Canadians diagnosed with cancer will survive at least 5 years after their diagnosis. In this article we aim to explore some effective natural cancer treatment options, such as using Acupuncture for treating Cancer or Recall Healing. We will also discuss how to best receive a cancer diagnosis, and a natural way of dealing with the side effects of the medical treatment for cancer.

A disclaimer is needed to be said, that we do not encourage to stop or replace any medical protocol, treatment or advice given by your physician. All of our suggestions are recommended in addition to the conventional medicine and not instead of it.

What is the Emotional Reason Behind Cancer?

Many ask what is the cause of cancer? This is a very important question.

Cancer natural treatment

Here are some of the common answers:

– Unhealthy diet, especially processed foods
– Genetic reasons
– Radiation
– Carcinogenic Chemicals
– Hormones
– Unhealthy lifestyle: Lack of exercise and sleep, excess stress

Not much is being said about the underlying emotional conflicts in our subconscious that may cause cancer. In Recall healing we can relate different emotional conflicts to different kinds of cancer. The approach in Recall Healing suggests that cancer is not a mistake or a malfunctioning of the body, but a built-in, natural response to biological conflicts that our brain may perceive as a risk for our survival. (This will be explored later in the article in more detail).

A Biological Conflict vs. a Psychological Conflict

It is important to understand the difference between a biological conflict according to Recall Healing and a psychological conflict. A biological conflict may, if not solved, be creating a disease while an emotional conflict will create uncomfortable emotions. A biological conflict is a state in which a person (or animal) faces a danger of survival to themselves and their offspring and can’t do anything to solve it.

For example, there is a difference between the psychological mental or emotional pattern of “My mother doesn’t love me,” which is potentially unpleasant, and the biological conflict of “My mother doesn’t love me and I won’t have any protection and food, therefore I’ll die.”

How Can a Biological Conflict Cause Cancer?

The biological conflict goes straight into our survival brain, which must come up with an immediate solution. For instance, an example for that is the biological reason for certain type of breast cancer. A female wolf is worried for her cubs because of many predators coming close to her den. This creates a conflict of survival to her cubs, and to assist her, her brain will multiply the cells of her milk glands to produce more milk for her cubs. So with this innate survival mechanism, they can grow faster and have a greater chance of survival in overcoming the threat (by safely leaving the den). From a medical-point-of-view, she has a breast cancer (Lobular Carcinoma), but from her biological brain-point-of-view, she is maximising the possibility of saving her cubs. Other types of breast cancer have different conflicts.

In humans, the biological conflict can be real, imaginary or symbolic. A mother’s need to protect her child can be one cause for Lobular Carcinoma breast cancer, but it can also be projected as worry for her husband, pet or her parents, that she symbolically wants to protect. Because of the complex human mind, it can also be related to something that is very important to the woman that is “like a child for her,” for example, her business.

How to Heal the Emotional Cause of Cancer

Healing the emotional root cause of the cancer from the subconscious level, according to the Recall Healing Method, is allowing the body to stop the creation of the disease and start the self-healing. As mentioned before, this process is not instead of any medical procedure, and can be combined with other methods of natural cancer care. In Recall Healing, to find the source of the conflict in the subconscious, we examine these three significant areas in the patient’s life:

 “The Iceberg Model” – the subconscious emotional causes for cancer (all right reserved to Gilbert Renaud)

1. Major events in the person’s life: Usually, the life of every person ischaracterized by a mathematical cyclicality that is linked to an illness or event. Traumas and major positive events or changes are taken into consideration.

2. The “Project Purpose”: The time period starting nine months before conception, the duration of the pregnancy and up until one year old. Everything that happens to the baby or his or her parents, in particularly the mother, will be considered. Most people are surprised to see the root of their disease is linked to this early stage of their life.

3. Genealogy – The Family Tree: We usually check three generations back for any possible memories that are related to the conflict of the specific cancer. The logic behind it is that descendants might be carrying the need to solve problems that their lineage has not been able to overcome. This is the ability to adjust to difficulties and evolution on the level of the family clan.

These factors reside in our subconscious which accounts for more than 90% of our brain as well as our behavior, thoughts and feelings. Most of them are hidden from us – just like the greater part of an iceberg which is submerged underwater, revealing only its tip.

Recall Healing for the Emotional Reason of Cancer

The Recall healing is conducted through a conversation between the facilitator and the patient. After completing an extensive questionnaire, the patient is guided precisely to the circumstances in his or her life that are related to the conflict of his or her cancer. It is important to have a precise diagnosis, since every type of cancer has a different, underlying subconscious conflict. It is better to start with the Recall Healing as soon as possible. Since the body is the healer, the stronger the body is, the better the chance to heal.

Recall Healing can also be done remotely through video mediums such as Skype or Zoom. Usually between three to six sessions is enough to go to the emotional cause of the disease. Some patients come for Recall Healing sessions as a preventative measure so the cancer will not return, after they had a surgery and chemotherapy. Even though the cancer is not present in their body from a medical point of view, they understand they need to disable the inner emotional mechanism that created the cancer. Recall Healing can support and promote any other treatment, medical and natural, and can be done simultaneously.

The Emotional Conflict Behind Most Common Types of Cancer

In Canada the most common types of cancer are lung cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer and colorectal cancer. Together they account for more than 50% of all instances of cancer (there are around 100 types of cancers). In this article we will give a short introduction to each and the emotional conflict related by the Recall Healing Method. It is important to note that statistics are good for doctors and for planning the treatment and measuring prevalence. However, every human being diagnosed with cancer is unique and has the possibility to heal and to reach optimum health.

Lung Cancer Natural Treatment

This  type of cancer is mostly connected to smoking, although we must ask ourselves how it is that 15 % of the people who get lung cancer have never been smokers. 35 % of lung cancer sufferers are past smokers, and yet some people including chain smokers never suffer from lung cancer. The body’s function of multiplying the cells of the lung is to get more air, more life and more space. The main emotional conflict that is related to the lung is “fear of death for myself or for another.” In this you can see that the warnings about the danger from smoking are actually contributing to the conflict. There are a few other conflicts that are related to lung cancer.

Breast Cancer Natural Treatment

The biological meaning of the breast is to take care of my home/nest.
It is a very feminine aspect, to feed and protect my loved ones. The conflict of breast cancer will be related to her children, husband, parents and other important relationships. In breast cancer it is important to know the tissue involved in the breast:

Milk duct cancer – (Invasive Ductal Carcinoma) – this is 80% of the breast cancer. The biological conflict is related to a separation in the home/nest.
Milk gland cancer- (Lobular Carcinoma) – The conflict will be related to a danger in the home /nest.

The location of the tumor on the breast itself and the side of the body affected can also give us more details about the conflict. The same principles refer to the biological conflict of benign tumors in the breast.

In some types of cancer, the tumor will grow while the conflict is present in the person’s life, and in other types, the cancer will start developing after the stress is already gone! It is not uncommon to hear from patients who are describing the time before the diagnosis as the best time in their life, in their relationship, etc.

Prostate Cancer Natural Treatment

The prostate function in a man’s body is to create the prostate fluid which is one of ingredients of semen. This fluid function is to create a healthy environment for the sperm to reach the uterus and reproduce.
Thus, the biological conflict related to the prostate are:
1. Worry for the descendants – children and grandchildren.
2. Conflict in sexuality.
3. Conflict in the relationship.

Prostate Cancer is usually not violent and the man has time to treat the emotional causes of his condition and to use natural medicine. The same principle is used to treat prostate enlargement or prostatitis.

Colorectal Cancer Natural Treatment

This is the last stop of the digestive track. Different types of cancer in the digestive system have different conflicts. The main conflict of the large intestine is related to letting go of some “garbage or something unpleasant.” “I can’t understand/digest something that was done to me or that I did.” Another conflict will be that “I cannot let go of the past, or of someone who died.” Holding on to objects, relationships or anything in the past is against the nature of the colon. The multiplication of the cells that happens in cancer is the brain’s way of helping you to flush out what you don’t need anymore. Although it can be very painful emotionally, letting go will be good in most cases.

Using the Right Knowledge to Heal the Emotional Conflict

In the Recall Healing session, we will look to find the conflicts related to the cancer in the person’s life cycles, in his very early childhood and during time of his or her mother’s pregnancy, as well as and in the family history. If you just approach a sick person with the information about the conflict underlying their illness, it will not give him or her the right tools and information to heal the conflict. One needs to connect directly with the specific events, traumas and beliefs of the conflict which manifested the illness in his or her life.

When the connection between a disease + conflict + event is made, there can be a feeling of some emotion or of clarity. This means that the conflict that was in the subconscious is now in the conscious mind. When this happens, the patient’s brain understands that the conflict is “taken care of” and that it can be now released from the body.

What is Important to Know About Cancer Diagnosis?

The time of the diagnosis is very important, particularly in life threatening diseases. When one gets the diagnosis that he or she has cancer, it is a shock. Most people will have some conscious and subconscious beliefs and reaction to the diagnosis of cancer:
– “I am going to die”
– “I’m going to suffer from the pain”
– “I am going to suffer from the treatments”
– “I’m part of the statistics”
– “What is going to happen to my children?”
– Worries about work, money, and any other practical aspects.

These reactions are obviously beliefs, based on the persons mind and are highly influenced by the way the doctor gives the diagnosis.

Diagnosis for cancer

Because it is so dramatic news, there is a great chance for a negative or positive placebo effect. It is not uncommon to see people who become very sick after the diagnosis was given. This is also influenced by the way the person’s family and friends are reacting, and a big factor is the person’s state of mind. In Recall Healing this is called the “Conflict of Diagnosis”. The conflict of diagnosis can highly influence the person’s ability to heal and to recover. In extreme cases, the conflict of diagnosis can create another type of cancer or metastasis.

For example: A women is diagnosed with breast cancer. After the diagnosis she had extreme financial worries for her family since she was the primary supporter of the family and since her husband’s business was suffering a lot of financial debt. This eventually led to metastasis in the liver. One of the main conflicts of liver cancer is related to financial worries. So, it is important to unravel the inner thoughts and emotions of the person who was diagnosed, to allow him or her to heal better.

Natural Treatments for Cancer

The conventional medicine treatments for cancer can have in many cases, very harsh side effects. This is a cost vs benefit analysis that every oncologist doctor must do with their patients. Natural medicine can assist with healing the person by clearing the emotion and mental state, strengthening the body and immune system, and clearing the side effects of the medical treatment as much as possible. We will cover some of the main natural healing methods for cancer care.

Acupuncture for Cancer

Naturopathy for Cancer

Naturopathy is widely used in cancer care. The Naturopath Doctor can assist in different ways:
– Nutrition: This can be very effective as part of the treatment. It is important to take out carcinogenic food from the menu, foods that cause allergy and inflammation. There are many theories about nutrition, from vegan to keto. No one is technically proven better than the other, and it is wise to find the one that is right for you and your body.
– Intravenous Therapy: High doses of vitamin C and Mistle toe Therapy.
– Ozone and UV Therapy.
– Detoxification: Clearing toxins from the medical treatments and consumption of unhealthy food and pollution.
– Herbal therapy and vitamin and supplements: The best results are seen when supplements are taken after a professional diagnosis from a Naturopathic Doctor.

How to Deal with Side Effects of Chemotherapy and Radiation


Herbal therapy Cancer 

The conventional medical treatments for cancer are, generally speaking, aiming to kill the cancer cells. Unfortunately, in doing so the rest of the cells in the body are damaged. Our main goal in this process from a natural cancer care point of view, is to make the body as strong as possible and allow the body functions to eliminate all the waste that is created.

As mentioned above, acupuncture, herbal therapy, nutrition and naturopathy are very effective in this. The age, the physical and mental configurations are also playing an important part. If possible it is recommended to receive the natural treatments before, during and after the medical treatments.

It is important not to create a negative opinion towards the medical treatments for cancer. If the patient believes that the treatment is bad, toxic and is going to “kill me,” it will be harder for him or her to deal with the side effects. It is better to decide with your Medical Doctor about the best course of treatment and then to see it as a good and organic part of your healing.

Cancer Detox – is it Healthy?

It is common to look at detoxification as something healthy. According to Chinese Medicine, detoxification can create damage if the person’s constitution is poor. It can actually weaken the patient’s body and impede healing. For the body, an extreme diet causes a lot of stress, especially if there is lack of nutrients. In this case it is not “the more the better” and therefore, detoxification should be done with care and with a proper diagnosis and follow-up.

We hope that this article will help you to find a natural approach to add to your cancer treatment, and help you to heal.
