Robert Eslinger, DO, HMD, or Dr. Bob, as those in his practice fondly call him, finished his formal medical training in 1978 (clinic website). He has been in clinical practice for over thirty years. He is certified in Family Practice, Osteopathic Manipulation and Homeopathy. In November, 2008, he was appointed by the governor of Nevada to sit on the Board of Homeopathic Medical Examiners for the state of Nevada; a board that supervises not just homeopathic practice, but all of alternative medicine. Dr. Eslinger currently practices at the Reno Integrative Medical Center in Reno, NV.
For thirteen years prior to coming to Reno, Dr. Eslinger was the Medical Director of Cascade Medical Center in Cascade, Idaho. Before concentrating in the area of alternative/integrative medicine, Dr. Eslinger developed a broad background in traditional medical disciplines. His work involved everything from being stationed on a remote Indian reservation in the Public Health Service to establishing a private practice and spending years working in clinics and emergency rooms. He has been on a lifelong quest to find the treatments that work best for his patients. He has many hours of training in homeopathic and alternative medicine and is a compassionate physician who takes time to listen to his patients’ needs. He brings an abundance of life and professional experience to his practice.
He presently focuses on a specialty known as biological medicine, which combines older and more natural traditional treatments with modern technology and uses therapeutic measures to strengthen and balance the body. The primary goal of biological medicine is to support or restore the body’s systems to promote maximum self-healing. It involves methods of diagnosis and therapy that are guided by the principles of maintenance and furtherance of the human bio-system and its regulatory mechanisms. Biological medicine is holistic because it’s based upon the supposition that the body is a matrix of interconnectedness; physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.
What Cancer Is and What Causes It
I don’t believe that cancer is some alien life form that invades the body with the sole purpose of trying to kill it. The body has infinite wisdom, which sometimes surpasses our conscious minds, but things can run “amok” in it at times. So in many ways, cancers are really just adaptations to different stressors that people experience in their lives, either early on or within approximately two years prior to their developing a tumor. So cancer is driven by the subconscious mind, and it’s the body’s attempt to adapt to something. Of course, it can also be triggered by various toxins, genetic abnormalities, and infectious organisms.
I don’t accept any theory 100 percent, but in my experience of treating cancer patients, I have witnessed what Douglas Brodie, MD (the founder of this clinic and a renowned cancer treatment physician) calls “cancer personalities.” There are basically two kinds of personalities that he observed to be preponderant in those with cancer. In over half a century of medical practice, Dr. Brodie saw that cancer tended to happen either to people who had long-suppressed bitterness and anger deep within themselves, or to those who were martyrs—the kind of people who would do things for everyone but themselves.
Another doctor, Ryke Geerd Hamer, MD, who was an oncologist from Germany and the head of the main chemotherapy program in Munich in the 1980s, had a son who was shot and killed. Dr. Hamer subsequently developed testicular cancer, which caused him to wonder if there was a connection between his son’s death and the development of his cancer, because he had never been sick a day in his life. So he started asking his cancer patients questions, and learned that the vast majority of them had specific stressors—conflict shocks, he called them—which were blows to their psychological, mental, and emotional wellbeing, and which had happened to them within two years prior to their diagnoses. His findings were so specific that he was able to develop a map which correlated particular types of cancer with specific stressors.
For example, he believed that a particular type of lung cancer called adenocarcinoma resulted from people experiencing a threat to their lives. He thought that this death threat triggered the subconscious mind to want to grow more lung tissue to help to prevent death in the future, because breathing is the most basal reflex in the body. Humans have a strong drive to breathe, and if something impinges on that, then Dr. Hamer believed that the subconscious mind would trigger more lung tissue to grow in order to avoid strangulation; hence, the cancer.
I have observed a strong correlation between specific emotional traumas and the development of specific cancers in many of my patients. Once, I was explaining to a liver cancer patient the connection between the body, mind and psyche, and Dr. Hamer’s theories. I said to him, “Take pancreatic cancer, for example. Dr. Hamer believes that pancreatic cancer develops from conflicts surrounding family inheritances, or frustrated entitlements.” And the man almost fell out of his chair, He said, “My sister just died of pancreatic cancer!” Then he proceeded to tell me that his mother had died, and that he wanted to keep his mom’s wedding ring, and had told his sister that he wanted the wedding ring but that she could have their mother’s engagement rings. She said to him, “No I want both rings!” and she fought him, even up until a court battle, which she lost. Six months later, she developed pancreatic cancer.
I notice that these kinds of specific associations happen often. I’m not ready to say that cancer is caused purely by psychological factors, but they play a large role in its development. What is interesting about Dr. Hamer’s work is that if you ask any oncologist where cancer most commonly spreads to in the body, from any other organ and no matter the cancer, they will always say that it’s the lungs. Lung metastases are the most common type of metastases. So Dr. Hamer would say that lung metastases are due to doctors delivering cancer diagnoses to their patients, which causes immediate death fright in the patients and in turn triggers tumor growth in their lungs. These little associations have made me wonder. Another interesting theory of Dr. Hamer’s is that cancer doesn’t spread through the blood. Instead, every new location where it shows up in the body is an entirely new cancer.
