Learning to Give Back

Our expert took an interesting approach to curing cancer. First, he began eliminating stress from his life was part of a self-devised plan to cure himself from cancer, after he became disillusioned with traditional Western cancer treatment protocol. “I was in the process of rehabilitating the kitchen and two bathrooms in my home,” he recalls. “Obviously, I love to travel, and have been to 87 different countries so far,” he says.

“My goal is to have left the world a better place when I depart this life through good deeds, good karma, and a constant positive attitude,” he says. Our expert is a retired dentist who now makes his home in Florida, where he is involved with the Presbyterian Church of Pompano Beach Missions Committee. He also detoxified his body, and severed all ties with people he considered negative. And he is now dedicated to giving back to society, and remaining a positive person. He tried to laugh every day, began making regular visits to a massage therapist, and saw a chiropractor who helped him get free of all pain.
Barely one year later he was cancer-free, and remains so to this day. That includes his continuing missionary work in Southeast Asia, where he has been involved in building schools, and medical and dental clinics in Thailand, Cambodia, and South Vietnam.

Dr Arthur Kanev says that he has always been handy with tools, and has built many new houses and rehabilitated five older homes. “I was doing all of the work by myself and this was obviously very stressful. Through his church he has worked on twenty-eight different missions, both locally and internationally. But a diagnosis of cancer in 2009 led to some radical changes in his life, one of which was setting down his tools, at least temporarily.

Dr Arthur Kanev – Helping the Homeless

Giving back to others is one of the most important things you can do as a person. Our own expert has been a volunteer at the Saint Laurence Chapel Homeless Shelter, and a volunteer at the Broward County Outreach Center, where homeless people receive help and hope in a non-judgmental environment. Four percent were part of a homeless family, and two percent were unaccompanied minors. They say that a much better indicator of the size of the problem is the number of people who experience homelessness at one time or another.

Most studies of the homeless population are limited to counting how many people are staying in homeless shelters, or can be counted as they live on the streets, according to the Coalition. Putting a number to how many people are homeless in the United States is a difficult proposition. On a survey of twenty-three cities, conducted by the U.S. The very nature of being without a fixed address makes an accurate headcount all but impossible, and experts say that the very question of how many people are homeless is a misleading one.

Experts at the National Coalition for the Homeless say that in most cases, homelessness is a temporary condition, not a permanent one, and so the numbers constantly fluctuate. People are often turned away from shelters because they fill up so quickly.  Of those who were in emergency shelters, seventy percent were single adults and twenty-nine percent were part of a family, while one percent were unaccompanied minors. In spite of what any statistics say, there is no denying that homelessness is a serious social problem, not just in the United States but all over the world. In any case, there are figures that are generally accepted. Conference of Mayors, ninety-four percent of people living on the street were single adults.

Dr Arthur Kanev – Partners for World Health

Partners for World Health is an American non-profit organization that is committed to reducing the amount of medical waste, while at the same time improving global health.

Partners for World Health runs a medical mission program that gives doctors, nurses, and other professionals the chance to volunteer their skills in developing countries, with the goal of having a positive impact on the environment, to bring awareness to the level of surplus of medical supplies that often ends up discarded, and providing people with access to urgently needed health care to the poorest of the poor in the developing world. They serve primarily in Southeast Asia and Africa.

As one illustration of how medical supplies are used inefficiently, even wasted in the United States , Partners for World Health states that after a patient has been discharged from a hospital room or nursing home room, all of the medical supplies left in the room are discarded, even if they have not been opened. This is something that happens at facilities all across the country. The mission of Partners for World Health Care is to develop strategies and partnerships that ensure that unopened medical supplies are instead recycled and put to good use.

According to the World Health Organization the general state of the global health landscape is improving, and looks better than ever before. The average life expectancy globally is seventy years for a baby born in 2012: sixty-two years in low-income countries, and seventy-nine years in high-income countries.

Dr Arthur Kanev is a member and supporter of Partners for World Health Care.

Dr Arthur Kanev – Maxillofacial Surgery

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is specialty of dentistry that combines dental, medical, and surgical knowledge and skills. It refers to the facial skeleton, and includes the bones of the forehead, the cheekbone, the face, and the jaws, as well as the soft tissues in those areas.

Dr Arthur Kanev

Dentists who have been trained in maxillo-facial surgery are oral surgeons who specialize in the diagnosis and surgical management of oral and facial conditions such as epithelial diseases and mesenchymal disorders. They are able to perform various surgeries, including the extraction of teeth, uncovering the teeth for orthodontic traction, and surgically remove the soft tissue and bony tumors of the jaw.

Dr Arthur Kanev is a retired dentist who did his residency in Maxillo-Facial Surgery, and practiced that specialty for more than twenty years. It was this background that made him realize he had a serious health issue after detecting a suspicious lesion along his eyebrow in 2009. The diagnosis confirmed his suspicion, more a certainty, that he had melanoma, or skin cancer. A biopsy showed that the lesion was malignant. His doctor recommended an aggressive treatment of surgically removing the legions, along with radiation and chemotherapy treatment. “I said yes to the surgery,” he later wrote, “but no to the radiation and chemotherapy.”

Around that same time Dr Arthur Kanev was diagnosed with three additional cancers, and the treatment was roughly the same. It disturbed him that the doctors he questioned each said that they would not opt for the radiation and chemo if they were the patient; yet they routinely recommended that treatment for their patients. He educated himself about cancer and developed a successful treatment of his own, that did not rely on what has been termed the “cut, burn and poison” approach, and today is cancer free.

Dr Arthur Kanev – Non-Traditional Cancer Treatment

Dr Arthur Kanev is a retired dentist and a cancer survivor who was diagnosed with malignant melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, in 2009. He was surprised to learn that none of his doctors would personally undergo the radiation therapy and chemotherapy that they routinely urged their patients to undergo.

Around the time of that initial diagnosed he learned that he also had three other cancers. It set him on a path of self-education about cancer and led him to develop his own non-traditional approach to treatment. “Without using the standard, Western medical protocol of ‘cut, burn and poison,’ I successfully cured myself of four deadly types of cancer in about one year,” he says. “Since 2010, I have been totally cancer-free.”

The statistics vary, but every year approximately seven to seven and a half million people worldwide die from cancer. In the United States alone, cancer deaths are at more than half a million each year. That makes cancer the second leading cause of death in the U.S., behind heart disease.

From his research, Dr Arthur Kanev concluded that the human body is bombarded with pollutants, toxins and contaminants every single day. The principle causes of this bombardment are the environments in which we live, and the food and water that we consume. And he says that his approach to treating himself involved cleansing his system and improving his living environment. “We must do everything in our power to remove pollutants, toxins and contaminants from our environment.”

And it worked: when he went back to his original doctors a year later tests showed that he was cancer free, and he has remained that way. He now advocates tirelessly for non-traditional treatments for cancer.
