Cancer is Not a Disease?

Kidney cancer cells

Some Nasty Cancer Cells! What can you do?

Since my diagnosis with Stage IV Colon cancer, I’ve been on a journey to learn about the source or cause of this mysterious and scary thing called cancer.

Turns out it’s not something that you can catch from a toilet seat or a door nob. It’s not a virus or a bacteria. It’s not contagious.

If Cancer is not a disease, what is Cancer?

Let’s think about our bodies for a minute. A beautifully complex biological machine, evolved over millennia to be in harmony with the environment. Specifically, to be in harmony with naturally occurring food sources. Our bodies knew how to process the berries and roots, the occasional piece of meat, the whole grains. The ultimate green machine.

Over the last hundred years, the blink of an evolutionary eye, we started to learn how to alter our natural environment. We quickly learned how to engineer our surroundings at the chemical, atomic and subatomic levels.

It took our bodies thousands of years, generation after generation, to adapt to natures slow, glacial pace. It takes humanity a mere blink of a historical eye to make sweeping, radical changes all around us, while our bodies keep functioning like nothing has happened.

Imagine for a minute, your incredible body all of a sudden surrounded by unfamiliar situations, strange electromagnetic fields, foods that contain chemicals, enzymes and proteins that our bodies do not know how to process, and oceans of information and constant mental stimuli.

Our complex bodies had learned how do protect and defend themselves from the threats it was used to for thousands of years. But since our bodies can not change and evolve as quickly as the changes we are making to our environment, our bodies will still try to protect themselves as best as possible.

Cancer is our body dealing with all this change as best as it can.

If you look at the incidence of cancer in the world, the more “advanced” the country, the higher the cancer rates.

Typically, when our bodies are younger, our immune systems are stronger and able to deal with more systemic stresses and irritants. Cancer was pushed off till older ages. But now, cancer is showing up in younger and younger ages.

Why is this happening?

Pimples

This is an oversimplification, to be sure, but let’s just go with it. What does our skin do when some impurity gets unto a pore or under our skin? Our skin packages it up and creates pimples. Pimples are neatly packaged impurities that eventually pop out of the skin, disposing of the problem. Got a splinter? Your white blood cells will begin eating it up, it gets packaged up, and eventually pushed out.

Tumors

Since birth, our bodies have used our immune systems to dispose of our own cells when they do not divide properly or are damaged in some way. They are packaged up and excreted in some way.

But when our bodies just can’t handle the onslaught any more, those damaged cells circulate around our bodies and may wind up somewhere they don’t belong. When we don’t get exercise and get enough oxygen, those cells can learn to survive without it. They learn to ferment glucose (sugar) to survive. They change their aerobic nature and grow protein coatings making them harder for our immune system to identify. These cancer cells are also just trying to survive in a hostile environment – our own immune system.

Not only do cancer cells camouflage themselves, they also fake the body into treating them like a fresh wound that needs healing with new capillaries for a blood source. This causes the body to provide them with blood sources so they can grow (angiogenesis). The other problem is that they become “undifferentiated.” That means that they don’t know what exactly they should become – so they just grow and grow as blobs of cells that we call tumors.

But Why? Why is our immune system not killing these cancer cells like it used to? It’s packaging them up, but using a mechanism designed to repair damage in our bodies that does not kill them – it makes them stronger!

Isn’t that odd? It seems we have a systemic problem brought about by the gradual breakdown of our bodies ability to deal with our environment, our lifestyles, our diet, our stress. We have a problem brought about by the breakdown and weakening of our natural immune systems.

Cancer, Not a Disease.

Clearly, cancer is not caused by invading foreign bacteria or viruses. Therefore, chicken soup or antibiotics will not work to remedy the problem.

Modern medicine’s solution is to either cut it out (Surgery), poison the cells (Chemotherapy) or burn the offending cells to death (Radiation). The problem with this is twofold. First, the Chemo and Radiation kill both bad and  good cells. Second, these treatments only deal with the symptoms and not the underlying cause of the cancer. It’s a temporary solution, at best.

The cause of cancer is a perfect storm of irritants that are simply overwhelming our body’s natural immune system processes. Therefore, the solution has to be a restoring and re-balancing of our natural body chemistry by reducing as many of the irritants that we were not born to deal with.

The Cure to Cancer is in Your Hands

Find a Healthy, Balanced Lifestyle

Find a Healthy, Balanced Lifestyle

You have it within your own self to make the changes you need to help your body cure your cancer. I know that this is hard to reconcile against all the messages you see on TV from the cancer centers and hospitals. They tell you they can cure you and you want to believe them. In a sense, they are not 100% lying. They do kill cancer cells in your body. When the cancer cells are all dead, they declare you cured… for the time being.

They don’t tell you to change your life. They just tell you they will monitor you to make sure it doesn’t come back. Oh, and if it does come back, they can do the surgery/chemo/radiation again!

That’s right, they don’t treat your cancer’s cause, they deal with the symptom and expect it to come back. Hence the 5 year cure rate I’ve spoken about.

 

Making Better Choices

Healthy Living helps Prevent and Cure Cancer

Healthy Living helps Prevent and Cure Cancer

Regardless if you are doing chemo/radiation or not, if you want to deal with the cause of your cancer, you have to make better choices. What kind of choices do you need to make? Re-balancing your body calls for an entire systemic makeover. Here are the areas you need to look at for making better choices:

  • Reduce Stress
  • Remove Toxins
  • Eat Foods that are Natural to the Body.
  • Supplement as Needed to Strengthen your Immune System
  • Learn about Nutrition and Vegetarian, plant strong eating
  • Adopt a Healthy Lifestyle
  • Exercise

Since Cancer is not a disease, it’s up to you. Doctors can not cure cancer. Doctors can only provide temporary (and dangerous) help. Only you can get your cancer under control. If you adopt a Lifestyle that Re-Balances your body, your body can heal itself of cancer. It’s that simple. Make better choices every day to live cancer free for the rest of your life.

5 Keys to a Cancer-Killing Immune System

Immune-System-500w Last weeks post mentioned the 5 Keys to a Healthy, Cancer-Killing Immune system.  This week, we’ll expand on each of the 5 keys. If you followed last weeks post, you know that you must choose to live, choose to change your lifestyle, and learn what that means in terms of the specifics. I.e., you need to know what to eat and what to not eat, for example.

1 Eat Organic, Natural Vegetarian Food

Before I even knew anything else, I knew that a vegetarian diet was best for us. Funny how I knew that, but didn’t act on it until I was diagnosed with cancer?  It is said that most people only really change when they are too afraid not to.

People only really Change when they are too afraid not to.

Guilty as charged. Immediately after surgery, I started eating a vegetarian diet. I went vegan and cut out all meat and diary, and minimized all forms of sugar and glutenous flour. That means I eat mostly Fruits, Vegetables, Nuts and Legumes. You might think that’s boring. But there are some rather tasty spices that are also chock full of anti-cancer ingredients that makes it all taste great! Among the most important spices are Turmeric, Cumin, Oregano, and many others. Juicing of veggies is also a major part of most healthy diets. Alternative cancer treatments start with some form of vegetarian diet as a base and build on top of it. There is a wonderful website you can check to research this more called CancerTutor.com.  Take a look and you’ll see just how essential it is to cut out the meat and diary.

Most important, avoid sugar – and the taste of sugar (sweet) – like the plague. Anything that metabolizes into

2 Alkalize your body

Most people eating a typically western diet suffer from acidosis. Acidosis is an acidic ph balance in the blood and throughout the body. It is widely recognized that disease and especially cancer likes to to live in an acidic body. The opposite is also true. Cancer can not live in an alkaline body. Take a look at the recently posted PH Food Chart and look at the right side columns to see what foods promote a healthy alkaline PH in your body. Acidic bodies are also lower in oxygen vs. Alkaline bodies which are higher in oxygen. Cancer cells are anaerobic and hate oxygen. This is why you don’t see “Heart Cancer” because the heart is the most oxygenated organ in the body getting oxygen directly from the lungs and then sending  it to the rest of the body.

3 Lower your stress

Stress is more detrimental to your health than you think. Half of the US population suffers from stress related ailments. Psychological stress causes your body to generate chemicals that have adverse impact on your health overall. Cortisol is one of those chemicals that can cause all kinds of problems.  Read about Cortisol  it here.

Areas to look to reduce stress are:

  • Your Environment. Look around you. Do you like your room? Is it a mess? How about your apartment or home? Is it conducive to relaxing and being safe and comfortable? Could you use aroma therapy like diffusing essential oils to help you relax?
  • Your Job. Do you like your job? Is your job stressing you out? Can you get a job that you might enjoy more?
  • Your Relationships. Surround yourself with people with positive attitudes. You don’t need to have people around you talking about negative or upsetting topics while you are recovering from cancer.
  • The Nightly News. Do you really need to fill your mind with negative stories about the horrors of daily life? ‘nough said.
  • Exercise.  See below. Exercise is essential
  • Spirituality. Whatever you believe, there are some essential concepts that you need to consider. Forgiveness is one. Grudges. Hating. Being Angry. Find a way to forgive and let it go. If you are holding onto a old offense or hurt, let it go. You don’t need it and it’s killing you, however slowly. If you pray, then speak to your God. If you don’t, then do what you need to do to find peace.

Overall, do whatever you can to reduce stress in every area of your life. Every little bit counts! Just do it.

4 Take Natural Supplements

Augment your immune system with the Immune System strengthening and supporting natural supplements that you need for your body. I know that there are literally thousands of supplements out there at the local vitamin shop or GNC store. But there are certain things that you simply must have and you may have to supplement to get it. For example, if you don’t get a lot of sun, you will need to take vitamin D. Many reportedly effective alternative cancer treatments make use of well chosen supplements to help you heal and boost your immune system.

Supplements simply can not be ignored in a cancer therapy. With Cancer, your immune system is compromised (or you would not have grown cancer). You need to mend your immune system as quickly as possible. You can only eat so much food at a time. No matter how good the food, you will need MORE nutrients than you can get from the food to initially stem the tide of cancer in your body.

I’m following the supplement regimen recommended by Bill Henderson in his book, Cancer-Free.  All I can say is, it’s working for me.  It’s cost effective and extremely potent.

5 EXERCISE

That’s right, Exercise…and do it for the rest of your life!  I read a great book called, “Younger Next Year,” by Chris Crowley. In Younger Next Year, the authors assert that you need to do something aerobic 4 times a week and strength training like [preferably] lift free weights twice a week – for the rest of your life.

That may sound brash, but it’s true. Remember the old adage, “Use it or lose it.”  If you don’t exercise, you will soon BE an “old adage.” Seriously, though, cancer cells are “anaerobic.” That means a cancer cell’s metabolism does not require oxygen, nor do they like it. Cancer cells “eat” glucose. The more sugar you consume, the better your cancer cells like it.  This is exactly why I suggested above that you avoid sugar and sweeteners like the plague, unless you want to feed your cancer.

What we are talking about is not just a few minor changes in your life, but a complete overhaul of your lifestyle. But it means you have a choice. You can choose to change your life and live happily for a long, long time, or do the standard chemo/radiation and be on the 2-5 year “cure” plan?

That is the question, as Hamlet put it so concisely. In my next article,  I’ll expand on the 5 Keys to a Healthy, Cancer-Killing Immune System.

Again, I ask you, What are you going to do?

For all those that love you. For yourself. For all the people in your life whose lives you can be part of, I implore you to Choose Life! Carpe Diem. Seize the day.

It’s clear. You are the cure to your own cancer. It’s all you.

That may be scary. You might rather that there really was a magic pill. But there is not. You simply must choose to nurture and cure yourself.

This is what it really means to change your mindset and your lifestyle. As I said previously, I’m here to help you. I’ll publish as much as I can to help you find your own healing path. Living with cancer requires you start making better choices right now, and every now for the rest of your life.

Remember… To be or not to be. It’s your choice. Start by making one better choice for life, today!

Your Immune System is Your Cancer Cure

the-matrix-neo-stops-bullets

When I was first diagnosed on January 10, 2014, I knew what most people know about cancer. I knew that it’s bad – very bad. I knew that people died horrible deaths from it after some very unpleasant treatment that made your hair fall out.

Scary? Oh yeah. There’s nothing scarier than a death sentence of an unknown duration. It’s how someone on death row feels.

Fortunately, I was informed that I could not start chemo therapy until I had healed from the surgery. You don’t want to doubly stress the body from surgical healing + chemo at the same time. Best to let the surgery heal first.

This healing time turned out to be a great gift. I spent the next 6 weeks researching cancer and cancer treatments. It was a period of stunning revelation, to say the least.

I originally thought, “I guess I’ll do chemo and  anything else that’s good for me.”  After several weeks of research, however, it was quite clear there was no way I was going to allow my first course of treatment to be chemo.

Just the Facts

The research showed me there are basically two lines of thinking on the subject of non-mainstream cancer treatments. One is political and economic. The other is health and biology based.

The political and economic argument reads like a rant which I will spare you the details of for another time. The short version is that the cancer industry and the current available treatments (slash-poison-burn) form a massive and profitable segment of our economy providing millions of jobs and hundreds of billions of dollars in cash flow. Anything that would disrupt this segment of the economy is not to be tolerated. This argument, while compelling, does not explain what cures cancer. It only explains why you should not take the word of the medical establishment as the final word on cancer treatment.

The health and biology argument is at least as compelling and offers excellent cancer-fighting approaches.

Lessons Learned

Almost immediately, I learned that no matter what else I did, I needed to start eating a vegetarian diet. Initially, I didn’t know much else, but that was a good start. So, I went vegan and cut out meat and diary, and minimized all forms of sugar and glutenous flour. I did this part while I was healing from the surgery.

OK, I’m a vegan. The next question was, do I trust chemo to “kill” my cancer (along with most of my immune system), or, do I do something else?

Answering this last question was the magic. I learned that our bodies have all been killing cancer all our lives. We’ve been doing it all along with our immune systems. The problem is that our immune system is compromised and cancer is growing.

So, what happened? When did my immune system stop working?

More important, can I get my immune system to start working again? Can I repair my immune system so it will do what chemo does – kill the cancer in my body?

This was the key insight. It’s my immune system, DOH! Repair my immune system and I’ll live a long life.

But how?

How to Repair Your Immune System

Immune-System-500w

Here’s what I learned about repairing your immune system. Here are the 5 Keys to a Healthy, Cancer-Killing Immune System:

  1. Eat natures own Organic, Natural Food – Fruits, Vegetables, Nuts and Legumes
  2. Alkalize your body (Most westerners suffer from acidosis, an acidic ph)
  3. Lower your stress – all kinds of stress.
  4. Augment your immune system with Natural Supplements
  5. EXERCISE…for the rest of your life!

This clearly means not just a few minor changes in your life, but a complete overhaul of your lifestyle.

It also means you have a choice. You can choose to change your life and live happily for a long time, or do the standard chemo/radiation and be on the 2-3 years left plan?

That is the question, as Hamlet put it so concisely.

In my next article,  I’ll expand on the 5 Keys to a Healthy, Cancer-Killing Immune System.

Your Biggest Mindset Challenges

“Won’t people think I’m crazy for not doing what ‘medical science’ wants me to do. What will my family say?”

This is the first mindset shift needed when changing your lifestyle. Friends and family, doctors, will meaning people who want you go get well but know only what you see on TV and what your doctors tell you: Surgery-Chemo-Radiation.

“It’s hard to eat well. I can’t buy this supposedly good food in restaurants. I don’t know how to eat well – nobody taught me.”

This is the second level of resistance that your own mind will try to pull over on you. It’s fear based. The mind looks for evidence in all the wrong places when faced with change and fear. You have to suppress your fear so you can think clearly and see through the fear fog.

good-choice-bad-choice-sign

What are you going to do?

Chose to to live. Carpe Diem. Choose to stand up in the face of other people’s, as well as your own doubts. Learning to eat well. Find mentors, read books, research for hours-on-end on the Internet, read articles and watch videos.

This is what it really means to change your mindset and your lifestyle. For a cancer patient, it’s change or die.

I’m here to help you. I’ll publish as much as I can to help you find your own healing path. Living with cancer requires you start making better choices right now, and every now for the rest of your life. But first…

To be or not to be. That’s your choice.

Cancer Diet: PH Food Chart

Alkalizing the body is probably the best thing that a person can do to ensure good health and well being. There is a direct relationship between a person’s pH and the oxygen content of his blood, and a tiny change in pH can have dramatic effects upon a person’s oxygen intake. An alkaline body pH will prevent diseases, and will cure existing ones by exponentially boosting a body’s oxygen intake. As a general rule, pathogens and cancers cannot survive in an oxygen-rich, alkaline environment.

The Real Cancer Cure is an Inside Job

ShockingEveryone Has Cancer.

Yep, you read that right.  Everyone has Cancer. From the day your are born, till the day you die, your body creates potential “cancer cells.”  And you know what?  It’s perfectly OK. Your immune system has always known how to dispose of the imperfectly formed cells which happen every day as part of our body’s cell replacement process. Your immune system has always been the only real cancer cure. So, let’s discuss it.  Let’s talk about what cancer is NOT. Cancer is not something you catch off a toilet seat or a door knob.  It’s not some virus. You can not catch it from another person. As to treatments, cancer can NOT be cured by treating the symptoms.  Most tumors do not themselves kill.  You can’t kill enough cancer cells to survive cancer – not with chemotherapy, not with radiation, not by any external means.

Curing Cancer – an Inside Job

Hence, curing cancer is an inside job! Inside your body is the secret to curing cancer – it’s your immune system.  Sadly, this is one of the inconvenient truths that modern medical science does not really want to discuss. If curing cancer is an inside job and only your immune system can do the job, then what’s chemotherapy and radiation for? Chemotherapy attacks, weakens and can destroy cancer cells and your immune system. Radiation can only kill a symptom, perhaps burning a tumor – and surrounding good tissue. In both cases, nothing is done to prevent the growth of new tumors or boost our immune system’s ability to throw out the invading cancer cells and other metastases.

From the Mouth of Babes

My nephew, Jake, is a high school junior.  He’s top of his class taking all AP courses while lettering in 3 sports!  When he heard about my cancer diagnosis, he went to his computer and started researching cancer.  After reading up on how cancer actually works in the body, Jake went downstairs to speak to his mother, my sister, Jackie.  Jackie told me that Jake said to her something like, “Mom, if cancer is the result of a weakened immune system and various other stresses and irritations that suppress the system over time allowing the growth of cancer in the body, then what the heck is chemotherapy for?” a-brilliant-idea-2What a brilliant insight for a high school senior!  Jake gets it. You can’t cure anything if you don’t use the mechanism originally designed to solve the problem – the immune system!  And you certainly can’t cure cancer if you weaken, damage or destroy that immune system. When you follow this idea to it’s logical conclusion, it becomes easier to understand why modern medicine has to redefine the word “cure” to win.  Let me explain using Jake’s favorite game – Football.

The Cancer Playing Field

Think of a football field.  Team Chemo has to receive the ball and typically bring it 50-80 yards back to your goal line to score (and hopefully, to win.)  For a cancer patient, the goal line is a completely healed and healthy person who will never get cancer again.  The problem is that Team Chemo almost never seems to win.  They can’t seem to reach the goal line – a real CURE.

paper-football-goal-post

Team Chemo’s solution?  They move the goal line to the 5 year line.  If Team Chemo gets you 5 years down the field, THEY WIN!  Even if YOU LOSE by dying on the first day of year 6, they still win!

Doesn’t seem like much of a win to me! Especially considering that Team Chemo only has a 3% average “cure rate” even with the goal post at the 5 year line! What makes matters worse is that Team Chemo only makes money if they are playing the game – even if they can’t really win.  Not even if they shorten the playing field to 5 years!  They and their patients don’t really win. What this looks like in the real world is a playing field for a game worth Multi-Hundreds of Billions of dollars.  A game in which thousands of medical practitioners, drug companies, government agencies and countless other people depend on playing the game…or none of them make any money. It’s even worse when you realize that the drug companies supplying the chemotherapy chemicals can ONLY make money on them when they SELL these chemicals.  They Must play the game, or they die!  And for the game to be played, they need Cancer patients. Sadly, only the symptoms can be treated which means that cancer patients will eventually die of the untreated causes.

CancerCures-MatrixThe Brutal Truth About Cancer Treatment

A real Cancer Cure doesn’t make any money for Team Chemo: Big Pharma, Oncologists, Radiologists, Hospitals.  The fact is, Team Chemo does not make money if we can cure cancer naturally. Big Pharma can not patent natures medicine that really bolsters the immune system.  Medicines like vegetables, food supplements and oils from naturally occurring plants and other sources can not be patented and owned by a company.  No patents = no drugs.  No drugs = nothing to prescribe.  No drugs = nothing for oncologists to use to kill cancer cells and immune systems.  No drugs and no prescriptions = no money. Finally, government does not like unemployment – it’s bad for business…and votes.  So government agencies tend to favor the status quo with the current game and the current players.  Change (real cancer cures) are, in this case, bad for business.

The Bottom Line

Today’s Cancer Industry is a jobs program for Team Chemo. Plain and simple.  It is not about curing cancer. It’s about perpetuating jobs using the tools they have whether or not they cure cancer. Having said that, just like in the movie, The Matrix, the people with jobs in the cancer game do not know this.  They truly believe they are doing their best to really cure cancer.  They have been trained by medical schools with thinking designed to play on the field with Team Chemo.  Same with cancer patients.  All they know is that doctors are good and are the only ones who can cure illness.  So patients willingly play the game.

“We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them” ~ Albert Einstein 
Einstein said that you can’t solve problems using the same thinking that created the problem.  That’s just like the definition of insanity – doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.

You Have the Real Cancer Cure Inside You

The real cancer cure is to play a whole new game. What would it look like for people and patients it we treated the real causes of cancer, rather than the symptoms?  A world where people ate food that was really good for them?  A world where people did not abuse their own immune systems and rarely got cancer, diabetes, or stress related illnesses and syndromes.

matrix-blue-pill

The good news is that you live in that world right NOW!  There is nothing stopping you from waking up and quitting Team Chemo’s game, changing your lifestyle and healing and strengthening your immune system. Only YOU can truly prevent or cure your Cancer.  Your immune system has been doing it all your life.  The trick is to help it keep doing it.

And that’s the new game. Join me in playing the new game and joining a new team.  Be proactive with your health and join me on Team Healthy Lifestyle. Taking care of your health and your immune system is the true Cancer Cure.

Book Review: Anticancer, A New Way of Life

Anticancer-a-new-way-of-lifeAnticancer, A New Way of Life by David Servan-Schreiber, MD PhD

“This book is part memoir, part science, and part advice book. Servan-Schreiber, a psychiatrist was conducting an experiment. When his subject didn’t show up for a brain scan, he volunteered to be scanned and discovered a tumor in his brain that was malignant. He describes his treatment for brain cancer and how he was told that there was nothing he could do to improve his prognosis other than just getting through the treatment. But he researched and found many studies that show that there are many ways that people can decrease their likelihood of getting cancer or improve their outcome if they have cancer. Filled with data and great recommendations, this is a book that should be read by everyone. ”

I really like this book. Recommended.
