Living Upward – Never Look Back & Never Give Up Hope.

Leave a comment


My personal belief is that it is a great crime to take away hope. No matter how dire the situation seems to be. We should be realistic about he seriousness of a situation, but we should never take hope away from a patient. It is often times the only thing they have left after a dire diagnosis.  Check out this article published in the Sarcoma journal in 2008.

This article sites “spontaneous remission” of angiosarcoma of the breast with lung metastasis. It also sites references reporting spontaneous remission of osteosarcoma with lung metastasis and endometrial stromal sarcoma.

Let’s talk a little bit about how spontaneous remission is defined in medical literature. Spontaneous remission DOES NOT mean that the patient did not undergo treatment. The article defines Spontaneous regression (SR) of cancer as “a partial or complete disappearance of a malignant tumour in the absence of medical treatment or in the presence of treatment which is considered to be inadequate to produce a significant influence on tumour regression.”

Rather than focus on the negative aspects of how these semantics can mislead the general public, let’s focus on the positive.  There are many people every day who choose to treat their various diseases conservatively. Does it always work? No, of course not. But there is an underlying philosophy of health that is beautifully articulated by an alternative cancer treatment doctor in Mesa, AZ named Dr. Lodi. He is a medical doctor who has chosen to approach health in a much different way than he was taught in medical school.  Listen for yourself:

At Upward Living Chiropractic Wellness, we promote the off-label benefits of chiropractic care. Your Upward Living doctor will truly care for you as an individual.  When this happens, the effects of the chiropractic adjustment are as far-reaching as the powers that hold together the fabric of the universe.  That is because the same powers that maintain matter in existence are also responsible for the human body’s regenerative processes. That regenerative process is mediated by the nervous system. The primary intention of the Upward Living doctor is to measure, track & restore the higher level functioning of the nervous system.  When approached from this philosophy, chiropractic care suddenly becomes a necessary part of any health care regimen, instead of a simple therapy for back and neck pain.

However, we do take your pain very seriously because we know that your pain is intimately tied to your health. This signal is often pointing to a different problem.  We take the time to figure out where your pain is coming from and we nurture you toward health.  That is the true nature of healthcare.  That is what you can expect at Upward Living Chiropractic Wellness.
