What Are The Fundamental Differences Between Vaccines, Antibiotics, Chemo Therapy, And Radiation?

Postby Leonides » Mon Oct 02, 2017 1:55 am

Regarding the mechanism of how these treatments work, it seems that antibiotics and vaccines both utilize the bodies natural defenses, and chemo and radiation try to go around the immune system and put more stress on the bodies natural defenses.
Is that correct? How on earth can these cancer treatments be effective at all? Are there any cancer treatments that actually work harmoniously with the body?

What Are The Fundamental Differences Between Vaccines, Antibiotics, Chemo Therapy, And Radiation?

There is a clinical trial in the Methodist Cancer Research Hospital Houston combining taxotere chemotherapy with TROVAX immune therapy. Each used alone, not combined with anything else, has an impact on prostate and other cancers. Combined, they work better. The trial is measuring that improved combined edge. I know about this because I may be entering that trial this year if my condition gets worse.


There are a lot of clinical trials combining multiple treatments with success including radiation + experimental drugs. I cannot explain why multiple combined treatments work better in most cases. I even saw one trial of two different vaccines that claimed shrinkage of tumors.

Antibiotics do not treat cancer and I have not seen any treatment using antibiotics. Vaccines are not antibiotics. Vaccines for cancer treatments are experimental blood treatments to boost your immune to help fight cancer. There are over a dozen drug companies trying to develop this and get it to the market, including Provenge, the most popular one that got a disappointing denial last year by the FDA because they say there they wanted more data and testing.

Anti Biotic Anti - antagonistic to Bio - existence. Antibiotics strive against antagonistic to existence. Antibiotics are used antagonistic to infections of viruses and micro organism. Vaccines are the truly virus or micro organism crippled so as that once given to someone the man can live on it and then be prepared to strive against off the completed virus or micro organism it really is uncrippled. some viruses we've vaccines for and some we do not.

Antibiotics kill the bacteria.
Vaccines introduce the virus to your immune system at very low levels so that your body knows how to deal with the virus.
Chemo uses a cocktail of toxic medications to kill cancer.
Radiation uses toxic energy waves.

You cant use something like anti biotics or vaccines against cancer because cancer isnt a bacteria or a virus.
Can be caused by viruses in certain cases, but in and of it self is not one.

THere are no 'natural' remedies that have been proven to heal cure or prevent cancer.
There are several things that can help with side effects of treatment and make it more pleasant though.

The problem with finding a natural or non toxic cure or prevention is that we dont totally understand how all cancers work.
To current medical knowledge, these toxic things are the only things that statistically have good chances of fighting the cancer.

Some measures of prevention (just measures, not a gauruntee) though are to eat organic, avoid carcinogens (like cigs..
that are a risk factor of EVERY type of cancer, not just lung).


BTW, anitbiotics, anti virals, anti fungals, vaccines, and med really that are typically safe all have the possibility of becoming toxic depending on the individual, dosage, or reaction to other meds or issues.
