This month we will cover two sides of mesothelioma: the legal elements and the medical elements. Each side of this disease can be heavily daunting. One side of the coin gives you a diagnosis that in a large majority of the cases is fatal within 2 years. There are many obstacles to cover to prolong life and protect and preserve the quality of life that remains. The other side of the coin represents the law and the illegal exposure to asbestos that was the cause of your deadly illness. Most will want to legally pursue options to hold the parties of this exposure responsible and go after monetary compensation.
Your first inclination about asbestos-related illness will come from a medical diagnosis. Most people are devastated and do not know exactly where to begin. Finding a medical professional or specialist near you will be your first priority. Your next priority will be understanding the legal implications of the negligence of others afflicting you with a deadly disease and you will want to take legal recourse.
Both sides of this coin represent a battle – each with specific steps and understandings you must comprehend and master in order to win the war. This months’ blogs will help to empower you with information to cover both fronts.
Keep Your Options Open – Alternative Mesothelioma Treatment
Traditional western doctors are likely to give a very poor prognosis to those considering alternative mesothelioma treatment. As it is today, traditional mesothelioma cancer treatments have a very low rate of success for curing patients. Thus, one could argue, that it is advisable to search out other methods and see a holistic health practitioner with experience treating your specific cancer. There are natural treatment options that have shown success in some patients.
There are names and survival stories of many mesothelioma survivors on accredited websites online. The accredited sites are not necessarily advocating alternative medicines even though many of the survivors listed attribute their recovery to alternative and natural cures. Nearly all alternative mesothelioma treatment practices mentioned by survivors include: nutrition, antioxidants, holistic treatments, meditation, mind-body therapy, massage therapy, homeopathy and herbal therapy. Of course, victims of mesothelioma that have used all of the traditional medicine options and have none left can feel hope when hearing of the success stories of other mesothelioma survivors. They become encouraged and gain the knowledge that the natural treatment of this cancer is not only possible but a valid option.
There is a particular alternative mesothelioma treatment called, “The Healing Code”, that has garnered the attention of some scholars of asbestos-related illnesses. One aspect of this code is that all too often the mental aspect of it goes unnoticed. After receiving a mesothelioma diagnosis, using the subconscious is considered vitally important in defeating any form of disease. The Healing Code, a bestselling book by Dr. Alex Loyd and Dr. Ben Johnson, delivers the tools that assist the mind to defeat disease. Understanding this book is an important level towards healing. Only once the mind has reached an enlightened state can the body begin to heal.
