Challenge Cancer | Avoid Chemotherapy | Mohanan Vaidyar

Cancer is not a big issue, says Mohanan Vaidyar. When you fear cancer then it becomes a problem that cannot be solved. Our mind is very powerful, so don’t lose your mind power when you hear that you or your relatives are affected by cancer because the positive thought itself can cure the disease.

Choosing right treatment for cancer is very important. Before going for a treatment it is good to investigate about that treatment. The treatments for cancer available in Allopathy system surely have side effects. You should be aware of those side effects before selecting that treatment because if something happens to you after the treatment then the authorities will not be responsible. They will already make you sign concern papers that you are the only one who is responsible for all the health related problems after the treatment.
