Welcome, I’m Grace Gawler; Cancer Navigator, Cancer Strategist & Patient Advocate.
It’s really a tragedy that although I’m very experienced in Botanical & Nutritional Cancer Medicine, I spend too much of my time rehabilitating people from the damage caused by alternative cancer treatment experiments – sadly some are beyond help.
That’s why I know that the information below may save your life. So please read carefully…. slowly…
As one of Australia’s most senior cancer naturopaths (42 years cancer service), I have a different perspective to most naturopaths.
What sets me apart is that I work closely with leading oncologists around the world.
As patient advocate I’ve sat in their consulting rooms with patients & families, I prepare patient medical reports for them. I’m in regular contact with researchers.
As such, I have a unique perspective on cancer healing from many levels. My lens is very much wider than my naturopathic colleagues.
I know the limits of naturopathy in cancer health. I’m committed to the truth of ‘what works’ for health restoration – I certainly know what doesn’t work.
But patients who don’t have my perspective fall prey to alternative medicine promises and propaganda.
It’s a very unique Perspective: Really – I’m in a privileged position – for 3 decades I’ve seen patients trying all the latest cancer cure’ fads. I’ve worked in German Cancer Clinics for 3 years.
Patients tend to come to me when other naturopaths and integrative doctors have failed them.
I’m in a position where I check the scans and medical reports of patients who visited ‘reputed’ cancer experts such as – naturopaths & integrated GPs, where they spent massive $$$ on regimes I’ve never seen work – not in almost 20,000 patients.
Had they asked me first I could have saved them a lot of money.
My perspective might confront your ideological leanings but they are simply my observations and my experience from 4 decades at the cancer coalface.
Further down the page I will also try to instil you with hope and possibility – concrete hope based on real experience & credible sources and availability of new proven therapies like cancer vaccines, immune timing cycle treatment and so on.
It is frustrating to me because with my guidance I could have helped them avoid the common traps and attain great outcomes. My desire is to prevent you from making the mistakes we observe being made by so many.
Increasingly – Cancer patients are turning to Dr Google.
The treatment choices they make are often based on bogus information and pseudo-science.
But they have an emotional investment in this information being true even when credible evidence says otherwise – almost like a hypnosis
The result is much confusion, suffering and even premature death
For most patients Dr Google can be misleading. Dr Google never works personally with patients, does not attend their medical appointments nor support them through every stage of their cancer journey, including hospice & dying. Working one on one with patients & their families for 40-yrs I observe a very different reality
Three examples out of hundreds (or 1000s)are presented in the following columns
Example 1. Black Salve: With millions of Google results praising and extolling the use of black salve for all types of cancer, many patients could be excused for thinking it is a miracle ‘natural’ treatment.
Some articles claim it has ‘intelligence’ and only attacks cancer cells while not harming healthy cells. Articles describe black salve as an escharotic which can “draw out” cancers from underneath the skin.
Google also says Black Salves have been around for a very long time, and some go back a thousand years or more with the Native American Indians. There are claims it protected them from cancer.
Example 2. Gerson Diet: Dr Google produced 468,000 results. Articles claim “The Gerson Therapy is a natural treatment that activates the body’s extraordinary ability to heal itself through an organic, plant-based diet, raw juices, coffee enemas and natural supplements.
With its whole-body approach to healing, the Gerson Therapy naturally reactivates your body’s magnificent ability to heal itself – with no damaging side effects.
This a powerful, natural treatment boosts the body’s own immune system to heal cancer, arthritis, heart disease, allergies, and many other degenerative diseases.
Rather than treating only the symptoms of a particular disease, the Gerson Therapy treats the causes of most degenerative diseases: toxicity and nutritional deficiency. ”
Example 3. Common Cancer Healing Beliefs (Myths)
Myth 1: Cancer is a man-made, modern disease
Myth 2: Superfoods prevent cancer
Myth 3: ‘Acidic’ diets cause cancer
Myth 4: Cancer has a sweet tooth
Myth 5: Cancer is a fungus – and sodium bicarbonate is the cure
Myth 6: There’s a miracle cancer cure…
Myth 7: …And Big Pharma are suppressing it
Myth 8: Cancer treatment kills more than it cures
Myth 9: We’ve made no progress in fighting cancer
Myth 10: Sharks don’t get cancer
Example 4. Chemotherapy is only 2-3% effective
Many alt/med sites promote a Sydney based study suggesting the above
1. Black Salve the Reality: Many patients come to me having used black salve. Without exception the results have been horrific! Some of these patients have been beyond help. Some are now dead some in excruciating pain.
A medical colleague showed us a photo where black salve had been applied to a boy’s scalp by his mother. It had burnt through the skin, tissue and bone exposing the brain. Such examples are not uncommon.
The Reality: It is not safe or even natural. A mixture of bloodroot and zinc chloride – it burns holes in skin, tissue and bone just as any caustic agent like bleach would do.
2. Gerson Diet the Reality: With distinctions in naturopathy and herbal medicine you might think I was in favour of such regimes. However I have never seen a positive result in thousands of cancer patients over 40-yrs, who tried Gerson.
I took my own husband (bone cancer) off the regime when he suffered massive weight loss. The rapid weight loss in many patients on Gerson are often mistaken by doctors for cachexia requiring harsher treatments.
In contrast to Dr Google I have seen many damaging side effects in patients following Gerson. These include dehydration and electrolyte imbalances, bowel issues associated with coffee enemas, malabsorption of nutrients. A false sense of hope based on Google Hype. Finally there are multiple other causes of cancer than toxicity and nutritional deficiency as stated by Gerson.
