Lot many seekers face this dilemma of whether to take any chronic ailment as a ‘karmic payback’ or otherwise. The most healers prefer to keep such ailment in the category of something which we ‘manifested’ due to mismanagement of emotions or energies in this life itself however that doesn’t explain the cases wherein little kids are found to be suffering with some dreaded ailments in their early years. Here only explanation possible by linking such a state to past-karma only. Yet there is another category which is again man-made type wherein people exposed to harmful radiations, contamination of food, water or habitat develop some chronic diseases like the one I am discussing here – The Cancer. Whatever be the cause, Lets face it, the cases of cancer are on the rise in general and the most common are uterine, prostate, breast and blood cancer and medical fraternity and researchers seem to be almost unsure as yet about how this disease is triggered.
Lot many theories and hypothesis have been given by them including mutation of genes, external factors and so on however it will be ignorant on our part if we do not approach this condition holistically including the questions like how it gets manifested, whether ‘karma-theory’ can be applied in such cases, if there is any possibility of ‘self-healing’ etc. And whether external factors, our ‘self-management’ has to do anything with the triggering of Cancer or not.
The Karma principle is infallible :
Whether a child develops a disease or an adult suffers in this physical realm – all the suffering is always linked to karma by all means. For a child the accumulated karma is getting just ripe to get manifested and for the adult it is due to karmic baggage that the situations are created. It is not just ‘a chance’ that you are placed in such a situation where external factors affect you… howsoever you may blame the government or the world super powers for dumping the nuclear waste.. it is karma unfolding. Yet that should not leave one (never in life) feeling handicapped in taking right decisions (at least best to one’s ability) and engage ourselves in ‘fresh karma’ effect of which might ward off/alter the consequences of presented ‘karmic situations’. Self-healing, medication, managing our responses and choosing right attitude are all constituents of that ‘fresh karma’ for which human race has always been granted a ‘free will’.
Some visible causes responsible for triggering Cancer –
Since there is lot of information available about almost all of these factors, I shall try to stay brief and at the same time trusting your intelligence that you shall be able to derive the actionables out of this discussion e.g. when it is said that heavy metals like mercury can trigger the disease it simply leads to actionable – identify the sources of mercury in your system and stay off those. Hope that makes sense. Coming back to causes..
Exposure to nuclear radiations, excessive X-rays, Microwaves etc. have been linked with the cancer and many studies have been published to prove the point. Excessive exposure to radiation has also been found responsible for male-infertility and also ‘only girl child’ issue. Although you can not completely isolate yourself from radiations in the current modern-age setup yet can reduce it by making certain well-weighed choices.
The association of mercury to chronic diseases (even leading to cancer) is well documented in the didactic scientific literature. The association between mercury and cancer is well researched topic. The major source of mercury has been identified as amalgamated tooth fillings and also root canal treatment. Mercury from amalgam-fillings has been shown to be neurotoxic, embryotoxic, mutagenic, teratogenic, immunotoxic and clastogenic. It is also capable of causing immune dysfunction and autoimmune diseases. Interestingly many un-diagnosed inflammatory conditions of body vanish when the body is detoxed of heavy metals especially mercury and these fillings are removed.
Interestingly Cancer changes normal oxygen dependent cells of our body to non-oxygen dependent types. Scientists say that this is the primary cause of cancer. In fact, all inflammatory, autoimmune, and neuro-degenerative disorders are caused by the dysfunctional utilization of oxygen caused by toxicity in the cells. But how do you recognize your body cells are having toxicity?
It is important to know about mercury toxicity (the most common one) is that in such a case your body may try to compensate for the lack of oxygen in the tissues by increasing the production of hemoglobin. This means that the individual may present with many of the signs of anemia such as fatigue, weakness, a rapid heart rate and shortness of breath, but have an elevated red blood cell count. This is one of the major signs of mercury toxicity. So you can check yourself for this however don’t relate everything to cell-toxicity.. it may happen so that your breathing pattern itself is not capable of supplying you enough oxygen. Take a deep breath 🙂
Voluntary consumption of tobacco, smoking, liquor and excess use of some ‘rasas’ (most of the Ayurvedic medicines used for libido management or erectile dysfunction etc.) and vitamin pills combined with over-eating (especially junk food) and sedentary lifestyle where you eat to your heart’s content and sweat a little (or don’t sweat at all) can also cause some chronic conditions in the body later becoming incurable diseases including cancer.
Pesticides in the farming, preservatives, mosquito and home pest killing agents, excessive use of disinfectants at homes can also cause some of the chronic conditions in your body. So its better to curb your killer instinct and find a golden middle path for living.
Although you can’t avoid few things completely however going organic and a natural living (at least as much close to nature as it can be), eating fresh and breathing fresh air has the potential to change the over all health quotient. Following Tattva Shakti Vigyaan’s basic principles about clean energy (sun energy is the cleanest.. unlike atomic), clean air, uncontaminated water and earth, akasha (space) free of pollutants (radiations and radio-noise etc.)
I shall focus on the invisible causes of cancer next time.
