Your Beliefs - A Matter Of Life & Death

Apr 27, 2008
In his book, the psycho-biology of mind body healing, Dr. Ernest Rossi reports on a ground breaking case which showed the effects of beliefs on a drug in controlling a person's immune system. It was the case of this person called Mr. Rai who suffered the advanced cancer of the lymph-nodes, called lympho-sarcoma.

And he was at such an advance state of cancer that he developed resistance to all known treatments. Nothing could so called cure his cancer. He had huge tumor masses the size of oranges in his neck, his groin, his chest and his abdomen.

His thoracic duct was obstructed, and between one to two liters of milky fluid had to be drawn out of his chest every other day. He was taking oxygen via a mask frequently and he was in the terminal stage, almost ready to die. But in spite of all these, Mr. Rai had not given up hope, although all his doctors had given up hope on him.

The reason was because of a new drug that he had expected to come along and cure him. And this drug had finally been reported to be ready for trial use. This drug was called Krebiozen.

But, initially Mr. Rai was not able to qualify to be used for the drug trials, as patients had to have a life expectancy of at least three to six months to qualify. But Mr. Rai, at that point of time, was given only less than two weeks to live. But Mr. Rai believed so much that this drug would cure him that he kept begging for the opportunity, that he asked his doctors, "Please give me the drug!" Eventually, his physician, Dr. Philip West decided to go against the rules and to give him the drug. Injections were to be given three times weekly.

And Mr. Rai had received his first injections on a Friday. When the doctors came back on Monday, they expected to see the patient in his bed half dead. But, instead the doctor found him walking around the ward and chatting with everyone around him. Immediately, the doctor went on to check on the other cancer patients who have been receiving the same drug.

But, he saw no change or no changes. In fact, some of them changed for the worse. Strangely, only in Mr. Rai was there a brilliant improvement in his condition after the drug was given. The doctor found out that his tumor masses have melted into half their original size in a few days.

So, because of this, the doctor continued giving him the injection, continued to give him the medication. Within ten days, Mr. Rai was discharged from hospital, breathing normally and fully active. This unbelievable situation began just at the beginning of the drug trials.

However, within two months, reports started coming out saying that all the testing clinics reported no results from the drug and it was probably ineffective as a drug for cancer. When Mr. Rai heard about these reports after he recovered, guess what happened? He loses faith. After two months of having practically perfect health, he relapsed into his original condition. The cancer came back. He became extremely miserable. He was readmitted into hospital. His doctors wanted to further investigate if his initial cure was the result of a placebo effect or the result of Krebiozen.

So, the doctor lied to him, and said that he had now heard that there was a super refine double strength formula that was about to arrive the next day. Immediately upon hearing the news, Mr. Rai regained his optimism and his beliefs in this cure. The next day, the doctor injected him with the new double strength formula. But, in actual fact, the doctor injected him with nothing but fresh water. This time the cure was even more dramatic than the first.

The tumor masses melted, the chest fluids vanished, and he recovered fully and was discharged from hospital again. He then remained symptom free for two whole months.

And this time, the American Medical Association finally announced in the press, that nationwide tests showed that Krebiozen was a worthless drug in the treatment of cancer. Unfortunately, within a few days of this report, Mr. Rai, after reading this report, was readmitted into hospital again. This time, his belief and faith were totally gone. In less than two days, he succumbed to the disease and he passed away.
