Man Refuses Chemotherapy While He Has Colon Cancer

Being all different, from our morphology to our way of thinking, the diseases that affect us and the way we fight them will depend on our strength of spirit and our health. In particular, when it comes to fighting a serious disease such as cancer.

Cancer affects a large part of the French population. The most frequent cancers are prostate, breast, colon-rectum and lung cancer. The National Cancer Institute estimates that the second leading cause of cancer death in France is colorectal cancer, accounting for nearly 12% of all deaths caused by cancer, especially among people aged 65 and over.

Colorectal cancer

Colorectal cancer refers to a malignant tumor occurring in cells in the colon or rectum. The latter are part of the large intestine and the digestive tract.

Many factors favor the transformation of an adenoma, that is to say a benign tumor, into a cancerous tumor such as:
  • Age, from age 50
  • Overweight and Obesity
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Smoking
  • Meat-rich food
  • Family history
  • Inflammatory Bowel Diseases

Different stages of the disease exist from stage 0 to 4, knowing that starting from stage 3, the cancer is no longer limited only to the colon.

The onset of symptoms of colorectal cancer occurs when the disease is advanced and varies depending on the size and location of the tumor. There is constipation or diarrhea, narrow or twisted stools indicating the presence of an obstacle during their passage, abdominal cramps, blood in the stool, unexplained weight loss, nausea and vomiting, flatulence and Bloating and lethargy.

Several treatments exist including surgery (laparotomy or laparoscopy), which consists in removing the segment of the colon where the tumor is located, as well as the fatty tissues, the blood vessels and the ganglions connected to this segment; And chemotherapy which is characterized by a cure of anticancer drugs whose risks of side effects are frequent.

However, in view of the uniqueness of the disease and the person, alternative remedies are possible as is the case of this young man. Discover its history!

The incredible story of Chris Wark

In 2003, 26-year-old Chris Wark discovered he was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer. The tumor is the size of a golf ball and is located in its large intestine.

Chris first underwent surgery to remove the tumor. Oncologists then propose chemotherapy but, contrary to the opinion of his family and his medical entourage, he refuses and prefers to turn to an alternative method.

In fact, Chris has decided to change his diet to offer his body the elements he needs to fight cancer. In order to improve his immune system and detoxify and regenerate his body, Chris went on a diet. It suppressed industrialized products from its diet, reduced animal proteins and favored fruits and vegetables as well as fresh fruit juices and smoothies. Thanks to this change in diet, Chris has overcome cancer and has not suffered any recurrences for 13 years now.

In order to share his story and his food, Chris created a blog named "chrisbeatcancer". He said that this healthier lifestyle change is also beneficial in the prevention of various ailments.
