Cancer has three main characteristics; all cancer cells are acidic in nature as the double Nobel Prize Laureate Otto Warburg discovered way back in 1931; all cancer cells are hypoxic in nature ie. the lack of oxygen getting to the cells turning them into an acidic environment; and toxicity is the key to propagation of cancer cells into tumours which can also be considered a precursor to acidosis and hypoxia.
The way some cancer-related NGOs and the medical insurance system is structured seems to suggest that there is no real interest in finding a cure for cancer.
There seems to be a whole industry tied to the treatment rather than the cure for cancer. Did you know that even the simple PAP smear was opposed and left largely unused for some 25 years, as this inexpensive test would infringe on profits?
Once the PAP smear finally did come into widespread use, mortality rates from cervical cancer dropped dramatically.
And so, the battle to suppress innovation rages on.
Today, there are a number of alternative cancer treatments that are vehemently suppressed and opposed, while talk continues about “doing everything we can to find a cure for cancer.”
For example, there are multiple ways of keeping the body alkaline. The reason it’s not available as an approved treatment for cancer is because it costs merely pennies a day, so no drug company wants to touch it.
You probably couldn’t even break even after paying the US$1 billion or so to get the approval… and this is the primary problem with the current cancer paradigm: Only patents make money, and if you can’t patent it because it’s a natural product, or if the treatment is not going to be exceedingly profitable, it will never see the light of day. Nor will it be part of the standard of care.
In the previous article on balancing nutrition, we highlighted the importance of addressing mineral deficiency. We addressed an example of the need for magnesium for more than 300 enzyme actions.
A mineral of such importance clearly illustrates that it will be needed in every aspect of health and requires proper balancing to eliminate diseases and that includes eliminating cancer as well. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.
I have listed three fundamental cancer facts above. In order to deal with cancer, one has to realise the implications of these fundamentals and many others.
Typical blood tests for tumours are only about 70 per cent accurate, which means that there is a high chance of false positives and false negatives. They are not meant to be diagnostic and yet most medical practitioners will use these bio markers for such a purpose. Even if these markers accurately shows up as real positive, it’s already at Stage 3 or 4 tumours.
Another fact is that all cancer tumours begin with a single cell. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion.
There are much more accurate methods of testing available overseas which can detect tumours at a much earlier stage as well but hardly any practitioner uses that due to lack of enthusiasm or simply ignorance.
When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached a detectable size.
In the same way, standard tests designed for tumours do NOT mean there are no cancer cells. This also means that when standard blood test or scans shows the absence of any tumours, it does not mean that there are no cancer cells present.
There was a 72-year-old man who came to see me with end stage prostate cancer. We embarked on a journey of detoxification and nutrition since even his doctor had ruled out chemotherapy.
After the nutrition and lifestyle intervention, he showed remarkable improvement after six months. Today, he is still alive and mobile. This is a typical example of “reject patients” relegated to the most fundamental of needs — detox and nutrition — when they should be the first line of health care.
Not all cancers require the same approach but this illustrates that typically patients are left with only time-tested nutrition and lifestyle options when they have nowhere else to turn to. Imagine what the statistics would be if such time-tested approaches were adopted as a first approach rather than last resort.
After more than half century of war on cancer, that is where we are today. We will highlight the standard of care treatment typically available next.
