Intro to Cancer: Causes and Treatments

What is Cancer?

Cancer is a survival mechanism that occurs only when all other protective measures have failed. A cancer cell is a normal, healthy cell that undergoes genetic mutation in response to an environmental change. When there is a drastic reduction or shutdown of vital nutrients and accumulation of toxic, metabolic wastes, then a cancerous tumor will form. Cancer cells are able to survive and provide energy to the surrounding tissues in an acidic environment lacking oxygen. They thrive on fermenting metabolic wastes, such as lactic acid. If cancer cells did not remove lactic acid from the cell environment, then the accumulation of this strong acid would lead to the fatal condition, acidosis—a condition that involves the destruction of healthy cells due to high level of acidity. Without cancer cells, lactic acid and other waste material would enter into the bloodstream and cause septic shock and consequent death.

It is important to note that a cancerous tumor is neither the cause of progressive destruction nor does it actually lead to the death of the body. To be able to heal the body of cancer, you must first acknowledge and trust in your body’s innate healing wisdom and ability.

What Causes Cancer?

Cancer only strikes when a part of the body is no longer alive physically, emotionally, and spiritually. It develops when channels of circulation and elimination have been consistently blocked for a long time. Anything that prevent nutrients, such as oxygen, water, and glucose, from reaching cells can cause cancer. This primarily includes the thickening of the blood capillary walls and the congestion of the lymphatic ducts.

Research shows a diet high in animal products greatly increases the risk for developing cancer. The biological mechanism for processing excessive dietary protein leads to the thickening of blood and the lymphatic system. With regular consumption of animal proteins (meat, poultry, fish, eggs, cheese, and milk) intrahepatic stones form in the liver. These stones decrease the liver’s ability to breakdown protein, so the level of protein in the blood increases. When these acid-forming and blood thickening proteins circulate the blood, the body thins the blood by depositing these proteins in the fluid surrounding the cells (intracellular fluid). The thinning of the blood prevent imminent dangers, such as heart attack and stroke, but hinders the ability of nutrients to flow from the blood to the cells. The reduction in nutrients increases the risk for cellular starvation. To prevent cellular starvation, the body removes these proteins from the intracellular fluid and coverts them to collagen fiber that is used to build the basal membrane of blood vessel walls. First, the capillaries thicken, then the blood vessel thicken, and ultimately, the arteries thicken. This thickening action blocks nutrients from reaching the cells and increases metabolic waste production.

The ducts and nodes of the lymphatic system are designed to remove or detoxify normal amounts of metabolic waste products, which includes 30 million worn-out cells daily. These old cells are composed of proteins, so additional dietary protein may overtax the lymphatic system by reducing lymph flow and increasing fluid retention. This increases the concentration of metabolic waste products in the intracellular fluid and leads to a phenomenon called a toxicity crisis.

In very simple terms, there are two broad components that cause cancer: nutritional deficiencies and toxicities. The following list includes a wide variety of lifestyle factors that may lead to cancer by decreasing nutritional availability or increasing cellular toxicity.

How to Successfully Treat Cancer?

The cause of cancer is specific to each individual. Therefore, it is up to you to become mindful and aware of your personal lifestyle factors that could have led to the development of a cancerous tumor. As you become more in tune with your body, you will find an understanding of what it needs to properly heal and recover.

The first place to start is adjusting your perspective and attitude. Dr. Andreas Moritz kindly reminds us that “Healing is accepting, allowing, and supporting, not fighting or resisting. This is how spontaneous remissions occur. The body uses its maximum healing capacity when it is not reoccupied with a fight or flight response which occurs when you are under stress or feel threatened.” Be patient, kind, and loving to yourself.

Choose to spend your time, money, and energy on therapies that support the healing process through nutrition and detoxification. Remove as many negative and stressful energies from your life as possible. Let your intuition shine. You are in control of your healing journey. Doctors, family, and friends may be there to guide and support you, but ultimately the decision is yours. Choose wisely and listen to your heart.
