Today is the vote on Trumpcare.

March 24, 2017

Trump will probably win the “Yes” vote by one or two votes today. It’s in his book, “The Art of the Deal.” I voted for him and I don’t regret it – yet? I had cancer and I was scheduled for chemotherapy. I went to Germany instead and paid for private immunotherapy. Today I am cured of 2 Stage IV cancers. What if I couldn’t afford to pay for my immunotherapy there? I’d be probably dead because my California teacher insurance or my Canada wife insurance probably wouldn’t cover immunotherapy because immunotherapy is natural-holistic, too fancy to be covered by insurance companies in most countries (The 10% Rule). The democrats and the republicans in Congress do not have a clue or a clause in their today’s Trumpcare bill that should say, “This bill provides the best treatment available for cancer patients at the best price possible.” If they wrote that into the bill I would be surprised. Politicians by definition are not capable of passing any A+ bill.

Plan B says, “Pass the Trumpcare and get to work on improving it by 2020.”  If that is what Trump is aiming to do, then my vote for him was not wasted. I have to think and care about all the people who do not have the money to pay for immunotherapy in Germany. You see, the US treasury owes 20 trillion dollars debt because of Obama’s Socialism bug for 8 years and Bush Iraq bug for his 8 years. A quarter of the 20 trillion bucks could have given us the best Trumpcare in the world – wishful thinking! The US Constitution doesn’t guarantee an A+ CEO for the country. Trump is better than Bush and Obama but he is not the best. The best never run for office, who likes to deal with C+ colleagues who can’t come up with at least a B+ Bill?

Summary of my cancer presentation at the ISSS convention in Berlin, August 2015.

July 31, 2015

I am presenting a new yin/Yang cancer treatment system guided within a greater framework of a 3000 years divine book of I Ching, the book of change from the Chinese Zhou Dynasty. Change from a disorganized state to an organized state required holistic transformation. The outcome must be greater than the sum of treatments.  This successful case study from 2002 to 2015 can form a global fundamental shift in cancer management because the treatment model is all-encompassing, ccomprehensive orderly, integrative, balanced, an integration of holistic and reductionist systems.

Cancer as other models of treatment consider it is a “disorganized” group of body cells that metastasize. Translating the above to Yin/Yang action system we added to the treatment of physical cancer also the eradication of cancer of the mind and cancer of the spirit. That means an approach greater than an  ordinary holistic approach.

To achieve the above success, System 1 and System 2 decision-making process, as described by professor Daniel Kahneman, a 2002 Nobel Prise winner, is implemented, including effective treatments that are usually not a part of any cancer protocol, such as Chi imagery, Prana breathing, mime, Chi gong, a daily lemon slice, facial expressions,Turmeric, Ginger and many more elements that cleanse the inner environment and can change a cancer life style.

To be able to regulate all treatment orders effectively, the new system requires an Yin/Yang trained advocacy. Such a person will know how to implement allopathic/holistic integration, research and how to apply liaison skills and be an expert in the art and science of making changes. Needless to say that social skills, personality, warmth and strength of character to face skeptics are needed for effective cancer advocacy.

And , finally, the new yin/Yang cancer treatment system must be comprehensive and balanced. We as care givers can not by-pass the best cancer treatments because they are not part of the zeitgeist and are ignored inadvertently today all over the world. I call it neglecting the 10% Rule. Cancer is a systemic disease and we cannot any more over look the best 10% of all treatments, such an immunotherapy, hyperthermia, tai chi, vitamins, special foods, effective exercises, different counseling, meditation, dendritic therapy, etc.

A human being in the I-Ching book is more than the sum of a few major Yang treatments. He/she are divine healers.

 

Behavioral medicine: The essence of a culture of health.

March 15, 2013

I am a behavioral economist. The discipline is a newly born financial baby. Behavioral medicine as a discipline does not exist yet on earth. My experience is probably a harbinger of what is yet to come. I had a Stage IV prostate cancer in 2011 that metastasized to my thoracic region and lodged a long tumor between 4 vertebrae bones. I lost sensation down to my toes and motor control. I had hormone therapy, photon radiation therapy and surgery, all free in Canada where I live. I had Proton radiation therapy in California where I worked all my life, paid for by my insurance company. In Germany, I paid myself for the dendritic immunotherapy treatment in Cologne where I traveled to in order to avoid a last resort chemotherapy treatment to extend my life by a few months or years (with unwanted side effects). Back in Canada from the Medical Center Cologne (MCC) in February 2012, on my last day at the beautiful clinic in Cologne, Germany, I asked the director what were my chances of survival. Dr. Robert Gorter looked at me, smiled, and said, “Elior, you are good at least till 88.” I am 76 and his response not only felt good, but also endeared me this renowned expert in immunology for his reassuring confidence in his treatment. You see, contrary to public sentiment against prophecies, there are a few doctors you could trust when they make life and death predictions. I  think Robert is one of them.

Now, why am I telling you all these personal things? Well, moving from Stage VI cancer to cancer in remission was such a smooth and awesome experience that I wish other cancer patients wake up to new treatment possibilities in the world. My success has created a dilemma for me as the director of http://www.cancer-VCRC.org, a small non-profit cancer information centre in a small Canadian city. Canada does not allow private cancer clinics. Even the recent desire of a few Canadians to start plasma clinics for pay is thwarted by government regardless of the fact that there is shortage in blood donations in Canada! Dr. Gorter’s clinic would have no chance of getting approval to open this incredible immunotherapy private clinic in Canada, like he had done in Holland, Turkey and other countries.

Well, the new board of VCRC discussed the idea of inviting Dr. Gorter and Dr. Hudi to speak at UBC, UVIC or other Canadian Universities, to be organized by Canadian individuals, doctors, cancer clinics, important patients… I wish to find a way to incorporate Dendritic immunotherapy for cancer with the conventional treatments offered free by cancer agencies in Canada. I hate to think that such a wonderful combination to reduce cancer deaths in Canada would fall on death ears!

I am not happy that Canadian cancer patients cannot afford the best treatments, but for now those cancer patients who can afford it can do what I did – fly to Germany, in addition to the great treatments they get at home! I have added all the information on our website http://www.cancer-vcrc.org and on my blog http://www.drelior.wordpress.com. Cancer patients: Hillel said: if there is a will, there is a way. Good luck.
