I want to extend a warm welcome to you as a potential client of
The Moss Report on Colon and Rectum Cancer. For over 35 years, it has been my
mission to educate and empower patients, including many with these types of
gastrointestinal cancer. I would be
honored to be part of your healing journey.
are several kinds of colon and rectum cancer. This report includes a discussion
of the main varieties, as classified by the World Health Organization (WHO) and
other agencies. These are classified by (a) cellular origin and (b) how those
cells behave—ranging from the least aggressive (benign) to the most malignant.
Adenocarcinoma is the most common form, but there are also two subtypes,
mucinous and signet ring cell.
tumors are then assigned a grade that ranging from least malignant to most
malignant. The classification and grade of a tumor may be used to predict its
likely behavior. In colon and rectum cancer, this is based on the microscopic
appearance of the tumor tissue as derived from a biopsy (often following a
Over the years, my thinking about the overall category of colon
and rectal cancer has evolved considerably. I would like to share with you some
of the core beliefs I have developed about this type of cancer and the recovery
In the Moss
Report on Colon and Rectum Cancer we fully deal with the conventional
treatments of this disease category. What are these? They include various types
of surgery, radiotherapy (including external beam, brachytherapy or radioactive
seeds, and proton beam therapy), and
various types of chemotherapy. We
also discuss the issue of “watchful waiting” in colon and rectal cancer. When,
if ever, might this be appropriate as an option?
We are not allied with any doctor, hospital or agency that
administers such treatments. This gives us the unusual ability to assess the
effectiveness of these treatments without any prejudice created by how we earn
our living. We combine this with a detailed knowledge of how these treatments
are actually administered and what they are likely to deliver.
conventional colon and rectum cancer treatments definitely have their place,
and may be essential for a cure, I also believe that there are new treatments
that offer hope to colon and rectum cancer patients. Some of these include the
use of anti-angiogenic agents.
There also are scientifically valid treatments that come from
outside conventional Western medicine. These treatments offer hope of real and
substantial benefit to colon and rectum cancer patients, even those with
advanced disease. In this Moss report I will discuss the ones that I believe
are most promising and relevant. Some of the most promising involve the medical
use of electricity, nanotechnology, immunology and virology.
Keep in mind that some of what are called “alternative treatments”
in the United States are accepted and used in other countries. Some colon and
rectal cancer treatments are so embroiled in controversy that it is difficult
to arrive at objective information about their effectiveness. I have done my
best to reach a realistic judgment on many of these. Yet other treatments and
approaches appear worthless or even dangerous.
My goal is to
provide you with information as well as to convey a way of looking at these questions
that you can apply to other treatments. I hope to give you a compass with which
to evaluate the many conflicting treatment claims in the colon and rectum
cancer field and to help you formulate a winning plan for yourself. Let my
knowledge, objectivity, and experience help guide your journey!
I believe that reversing colon and rectal cancer and remaining
well is more than just a physical process. Of course, medical treatments, such
as surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, as well as more natural therapies, have
their place in the treatment of this disease, and you need scientific
information to make rational decisions about them all. But there is another
dimension to the cancer problem. As one long-term survivor put it, “Returning
to a state of health is not just about having treatment; it means dealing with
the mental, emotional and the spiritual issues that tend to manifest
physically. It means asking, ‘Am I on the path that I want to be on?’
This Moss Report is dedicated to helping you to repair the breach
that colon and rectal cancer has created in your life. To do so, you need to
seek emotional healing as well. The attention you give these less tangible
areas can speed healing and enhance the effectiveness of your physical
treatments. But it can also serve as a profound source of strength, peace, and
inspiration for you. What we call body, mind, and spirit are interwoven strands
that form the whole person.
