About Cancer


Cancer – How It Works

By definition, Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells. First, you must separate “cancer” the disease from “cancer” the tumor. In most cases, cancer the disease is a 12 year cycle. Tumor formation occurs in year number 8. If, during the four years between year 8 and year 12, the tumor goes unabated and unattended, the tumor doubles in size every 90 days. Once the amount of blood taken by the tumor exceeds the ability of the host organ to feed both itself and the tumor, the host dies.

We now know there are four major causes of cancer: toxins 70-75%, viruses 20-25%, electromagnetic frequencies-less than 5% and genetics- less than5%. Toxins are obviously the major player.

Loss of Normal Growth ControlA toxin enters the cell and crosses the double-lipid bond on the mitochondria. The mitochondria acts like an oven, trying to combust the toxin. The mitochondria’s toxin combustion is incomplete, thus causing a by-product of oxygen as a free radical. This is the first step in the Cancer Cascade™. That oxygen then attacks the RNA/DNA. RNA/DNA in its simplest terms looks like a 6-foot long sideways Z. Imagine that you compress this Z to a millionth of a millimeter. The oxidative stress comes along and hits pretty much the same spot. The part that it hits is the switch that controls the on/off mechanism-the apoptosis switch. So, more toxins cause more oxidative stress which causes more damage to the RNA/DNA. Normally, our immune system produces enzymes to repair the damage to the RNA/DNA to keep the damage-repair process under control.

When a normal cell death cycle occurs, one healthy cell dies and two new ones replace it. One dies immediately and the other replaces the original cell and lives its normal life cycle. So, when the apoptosis switch is damaged half-way through their death cycle, they start making bad copies of themselves. This creates uncontrolled reproduction of these abnormal cells which have no apoptosis switch. These cells are called “oncocells”.

According to the latest Japanese study, we have 75 million cancer cells in our body at any given time. Normally, our immune system keeps these cancer cells in check. The greatest single way to affect the immune system is emotional stress. This will shut it down faster than anything else. As the immune system is compromised from emotional stress, heavy metals, viral loads, or other stressors, the total number of cancer cells increase. This is part of the 12 year progression. By the time the cascade is at its eighth year, the cancer cells number reaches one billion and a tumor has formed. Fortunately, there are many things that can happen during those eight years that can help prevent the Cancer Cascade™ from progressing, for example, taking in less toxins and taking massive amounts of anti-oxidants. However, the vast majority of cases do not even know they have entered into the Cancer Cascade™.

When the oncocells are born, they enter the bloodstream and, normally, the immune system detects it as not belonging and kills it. But when the immune system is suppressed, you have more production of oncocells and fewer ways to kill them. The oncocells now begin to coat themselves with fibrinogen glue and phlegm. They create 15 layers of coating around themselves. The immune system cannot recognize these coated cells, so they start sticking together and form a colony. Then, the colony attaches to a smooth muscle wall and drills a small hole in order to get their blood supply. This is how a tumor forms.

Since a healthy cell has two receptor sites for glucose and an oncocell has 43 receptors, a tumor is a glucose burning plant. That means that oncocells only feed themselves with glucose. It is like a factory for burning excess sugar. This situation continues until the tumor kills the host organ. The organ dies because it is deprived by it own blood supply.

Cancer only grows in an acidic environment. Cancer cells release hydrogen ions which bind with potassium and magnesium and create a microenvironment around the tumor. This environment has a pH of 2.1 to 2.4. This acidic environment kills neighboring cells, creating more food for the tumor. That is why we must shift the body into an alkalize state.

We cannot cure cancer, but we can stop the progression of the disease, and then assist the body as it restores the damage and returns to normal health. Cancer is a many-faceted disease and requires a comprehensive approach to restoring the body back to health. The concept of Integrative Oncology includes adverse program working on each aspect of the Cancer Cascade™.

Enhancing Resistance to Cancer

With billions of dollars being spent each year on cancer treatments and research, it is horrifying to realize that the incidence of cancer is on the rise. Along with whatever conventional treatment is chosen, there is much that can be done to strengthen the body’s natural resistance forces to cancer. The system most responsible for this is the immune system.

Drs. Burnett and Thomas of the Sloan Kettering Cancer Institute, as early as 1973 reported that “In addition to protecting the body from invaders, the immune system has the duty to police cell growth and prevent the survival or replication of abnormal or ‘outlaw’ cells. When the defense mechanism is weakened, it fails to do away with the errant cells, either because it cannot recognize them or because it is incapable of attacking them.”

Strengthening the Immune System

The therapy used to strengthen the immune system is multi-faceted. It includes eliminating environmental poisons, correcting vitamin and mineral deficiencies, addressing functional digestive problems, utilizing a non-toxic and immune stimulating diet, reinforcing the immune system through the use of nutrients and spinal adjustments, prescribing animal and vegetable enzymes to de-shield and destroy cancer cells, employing methods to detoxify the body from cancer cell poisons and finally, emphasizing a positive mental attitude toward overcoming the cancer.

Each patient’s general constitution is different, so each must be fully assessed before the specifics of any therapy are prescribed. These scientifically proven therapies can be used for either prevention or treatment. If applied properly with follow-up assessments to mark progress, the patient has a far better chance of beating the cancer than by using conventional treatment alone.
