My heart is always cheered when I read research investigating the mode of anti-cancer action of a natural substance so was very interested in the research update by Shitaba et al from Osaka Health Science University, Osaka Japan regarding the antitumour growth and antimetastatic activities of alpha-mangostin, from the mangosteen fruit, which has a long history of medicinal use in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine.

As we are poised on the brink of moving into the new year 2013, this Issue 202 of Positive Health PH Online similarly bridges many of the gaps which certain forces believe to separate complementary / alternative medicine from conventional / orthodox healthcare. As long time, devoted readers of PH Online realize, I do not subscribe to the notion that various techniques / disciplines of healthcare constitute separate worldviews of medicine. I have long been an advocate of the vision that healthcare is multi-faceted and that there are a multitude of various disciplines and techniques, practised by different practitioners. Hence, I don’t see the sense of considering that osteopathic practitioners are alternative, but that physiotherapists are conventional, or that nutritionists are alternative but dieticians are orthodox.

Positive Health PH Online readers appreciate how, in healthcare as in all other endeavours, our treatment approaches are influenced by our worldview - our education, training, beliefs, i.e. how we perceive and understand illness and how to optimize health. Evidently, how we have been brought up, how we view the world, what type of training and profession we have followed, will all ‘colour’ our worldview. This also extends to our every domain - politics, religion, economics, architecture, entertainment.

As if it is not enough to be assailed nightly by bad economic forecasts, pointless murders and killings at home and abroad, and the hideous, shocking wars being played out across so many corners of the globe.

Integrated Cancer Treatment today is a total misnomer. Physicians are prevented from proposing or administering any treatments other than surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy in view of the stranglehold of the 1939 Cancer Act, and in a de facto catch-22 situation, because these are the only treatments acknowledged and recognized by the medical profession and the law, these same treatments are the only approaches for which evidence is recognized.
