|Screen grab from video below of 11 year old First Nations girl who replaced chemotherapy with unproven alternative therapies.|
(I'm not linking to that particular post because of a publication ban on the girl's name.)
The commenter linked to a January 16th update -- by Hippocrates graduate Jane Schweitzer -- announcing that the girl has been cured of her cancer. Here's the Google video version along with update text:
Such wonderful news...This family had to endure so much, the doctors said she would die if she did not have chemo, then they had the audacity to scoff at alternative medicine, then they had the audacity to try to take away this precious child from her family, then they made it a political issue, then the media started spreading lies to further their own agenda. Well people, this family did what it took to get Jada better including having to hide out in the USA for quite a period of time for fear of apprehension. Have the media checked in to see how she is doing? You can bet they would be all over this, if Jada's health was grave....but do you think they will report good news? The answer is abundantly clear, BIG PHARMA cannot make money off of natural medicine, so they will bury the info, or twist the info, and do whatever it takes to CONTROL you. Take your health into your own hands people.I've been checking on their condition and I'm all over this. If Hippocrates Institute is truly capable of curing some forms of leukemia, I think we should all know.
An article in Two Row Times has a little more background:
The 11 year old Kanienkeha’ka girl from Six Nations who was under threat to be removed from her territory and forced back into chemo has undergone testing which reveals she has no visible signs of cancer.
The child, who cannot be named due to a publication ban, went to an Ontario hospital earlier this week for a biopsy. Her family pursued the testing and received a call from doctors Thursday night giving preliminary results that showed both her bone marrow and spinal fluid to be free of cancer.
Specimens from the biopsy are being fully analyzed at another clinic in the United States for further analysis and the child will pursue the current indigenous medicine and alternative therapies protocol for another 2 years to ensure that she remains in remission.I've never had any ill will for this child. I'm happy to hear the results of this test! If this is a spontaneous remission, then this is fantastic news! Hopefully, the cancer will continue to not be present with subsequent tests.
Even if this is spontaneous remission, the odds are some 1/100,000 for this, while the odds of positive outcome with chemo were over 85%. Chemo has been shown scientifically to work. This was still an irresponsible action that could have -- and may very well still -- lead to grave consequences.
I also have some questions about whether what little chemo she did get -- some 10 days, I believe -- might have also somehow contributed to her present condition.
On the other hand, for the past 100 years almost all cancer patients have been treated in one way or the other, such that the influence of treatment cannot always be excluded.Whatever the situation, here's hoping the girl continues to be well.
