The Venezuelan President is dead at age 58 from cancer. He was a controversial figure steeped in conspiracy theories. But did he die prematurely because of using alternative cancer treatments?
Hugo Chavez received Mayan cosmic energies, says Rigoberta Menchu. But it didn’t help.
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez was sent strong Mayan cosmic energies and will overcome all obstacles, according to Rigoberta Menchu.
Menchu, and another 20 “wise men” are gathered in Caracas since Thursday, to work on helping Chavez’s health improve by performing Mayan healing ceremonies.
“I am absolutely positive President Hugo Chavez received cosmic energy because our medicine comes from the deepest places of Mother Earth,” Menchu said during an official event
Back in December 2011, when his cancer was announced, he wondered if the US was infecting world leaders with cancer. Last March, his prognosis looked poor but it was rumored he was rejecting intensive conventional treatment.
In mid-February, as he was out of the public eye during treatment. This story suggests he was undergoing alternative treatments.
Through all the media speculation, the truth regarding President Hugo Chavez’s condition has been kept quiet. He eventually started receiving all medical treatment in Cuba where his medical records could be kept private.
At this point in time, all accounts indicate Chavez is still alive and recovering, but as to what particular form of alternative treatment he is receiving, no one knows.
So, we don’t really know if he was getting conventional treatment and supplementing with these alternatives or if he eschewed certain treatment for homeopathy or other unproven and non-scientific treatment. It’s likely we WON’T ever know if he could have lived longer if he had chosen differently.
Here is a rundown on the current conspiracies going around regarding his death.
Did he actually die in Cuba? Did he die last month or under suspicious circumstances? The U.S. rejects the absurd claims that America had something to do with giving him cancer. And, there is the obligatory idea that he still lives.
As has been the norm for the past several newsworthy events, conspiracies swirl immediately and blur fact and fiction.
