There is a chemistry of life. And there is a chemistry of death. The development and progression of cancer is the chemistry of death. It's a cell gone wild. It's an immune system unable to stop it. It's one biochemical trigger after another. All of which work independent of our thinking. But the human spirit can trigger an equally unstoppable chain reaction. A progression of chemical responses that can compete with cancer cells. This is the chemistry of life. It is a potent means of fighting cancer naturally. It is more than mind over matter. It is mind, no matter. It's the ability of our brains to initiate chemical reactions that are as powerful as the cancer cells that do their dirty work independent of what we think, or say, or do. I'm not proposing that how we think or that what we do with our lives from one day to the next can stop the progression of cancer. But what we think, and say, and do can create chemical reactions that get in the way of that progression. Because the chemistry of life is the chemistry of the human spirit. We are driven to do, to accomplish, to create, to be. When we lose that drive, the cancer cells have a clear path. When we retain that drive, our bodies have no choice but to produce the chemistry of life. The chemistry that enables us to finish a project. And to start another one. To fulfill a dream. And nurture another one. It's powerful chemistry. The driving force of the human spirit. Not more powerful than the chemistry of death. But powerful enough to give you time. To keep you going. To stay one human endeavor ahead of physical deterioration. To slow the mindless progression of disease with a flood of endorphins and peptides and whatever else our brains produce that allows us to finish what we start.
