SUBJECT: WHAT CAUSES CANCER?
As far as the official medical "party line" goes, the absolute cause of cancer remains unknown, although numerous cancer-causing agents have been identified, from chemicals to viruses. There are a number of theories out there, however, that have a basis in documented fact. There may be many causes, not just one, and many effective avenues of treatment, particularly if anecdotal cases are considered.
Harold Dick, N.D., Naturopathic Pioneer
Of course, that would presume that a healthy terrain could be arrived at before an entire organ or system had lost it's function in the process. If the entire body or even a large enough area becomes an unlivable internal terrain, then it must perish.
Dr. Dick treated many cancer patients, which he divided into two groups: Those who came to his clinic for treatment instead of submitting to "conventional medical treatment" and those who came to him as a last resort after orthodox medicine failed them.
Of the first group, he cured virtually every patient who stuck with the healing process. Of the "terminal" group, his rule of thumb was, "If they can walk through the door on their own, they have a chance. If they come in on a stretcher, probably not, but I can take the pain and mind-numbing drugs away and make death easier."
His diagnostic methods involved blood analysis by observation (he was able to photograph a blood sample with a camera attached to a microscope), the O.G. Carroll Food Intolerance test, which also determines primary tissue (cell) salt deficiencies, Iridology, homeopathic diagnostics, observation of physical symptoms, and any other means he could come up with to diagnose underlying causes of disease.
He then went about fixing the problem with nutritional counseling to establish a nutritional healing diet, nutritional supplements, glandular protomorphogens to heal sick or weakened glands themselves rather than providing hormone replacement which could further damage normal glandular function, herbal medicines for digestion, elimination, detoxification, etc., and herbal salves for different purposes.
Aside from correcting the diet and eliminating often life-threatening food poisons--the most powerful healing agents he had were the in-house therapeutic treatments for "jump-starting" the immune system and blood circulation.
Constitutional hydrotherapy combined with electrotherapy treatments at his clinic involved the scientific application of alternating hot and cold packs to stimulate blood circulation, coupled with electrical current applied over the vital organs of the body (no shocks, it comes from pads hooked up to a machine and feels like a deep, pulsating massage) to rev up the activity of the organs such as liver, kidneys, bladder, etc. had almost miraculous healing affects. He used to say that 15 such treatments could do in 3 weeks what the diet could do in a year. Also, there were times when the body of a sick person simply lacked the vitality to heal itself without these treatments learned from the mentor he interned with, the great Dr. O.G. Carroll.
However, as conventional medicine became increasingly invasive and drug suppression of symptoms more powerful, it began to take more and more treatments to undo the damage done by "orthodox" medicine to those who went there first, and to get the patient well.
He was also a licensed chiropractor who occasionally used manipulation when needed, and a licensed homeopath (considered a medical license in some states) who used homeopathic remedies, particularly in cases where the patient was unable to stay in town for treatment.
All of his treatments were aimed at bringing the patient to a state of "cleansing crisis" (also referred to as "reaction" and "detoxification") when the body is able to throw off it's toxic load and resume normal or improved function with the proper healing and rebuilding materials now provided.
He believed "emotional stress" becomes a non-issue in a healthy body, which possesses the "tools" to handle enormous amounts of stress when followed by periods of recovery, but that unrelieved stress of any kind, including nutritional stress from wrong foods, becomes a different matter and can lead to a loss of nerve energy (enervation) and a resulting state of toxemia, the underlying cause of most diseases.
His cure rate for cancer and other diseases proved anecdotally that he had answers far beyond that provided by so-called modern medicine. As they say, "The proof's in the pudding" and his "pudding" was a rich and nourishing feast to those hungry for healing.
(Anecdotal cures are those that occur on an individual basis without the "scientific" proof of classic double-blind studies to back them up.)
Ingrid Naiman, author of the definitive book an Cancer Salves and it's corresponding website, cancersalves.com, researcher, writer, therapist, speaker, and visionary claims to have had a vision or dream of cancer cells explaining themselves as sick, suffering cells surrounded by a killing sludge made of cell wastes and toxins, in need of cleansing ...a mystical version of Dr. Dick's more intellectual vision.
Both opinions are supported in part by a large body of scientific material.
She reasoned that if cancer is a deficiency disease involving a lack of EFA then feeding patients a diet high in EFAs should alleviate some of their problems. When she fed flax oil high in LNA and LA along with sulfur-rich skim milk protein to cancer patients whom traditional cancer therapy had failed the yellow-green pigment slowly disappeared; tumors receded and patients recuperated. It took about three months and during this time symptoms of diabetes and liver disease also disappeared.
Dr. Budwig has used her oil-protein combination therapy to successfully treat cancers of the brain, breast, liver, lymph and stomach; leukemia; melanoma; CVD; diabetes; acne and other skin conditions; weak vision and hearing; dry skin; menstrual problems like cramps and breast pain; glandular atrophy; fatty liver; gall stones; pancreas malfunction; kidney degeneration; immune deficiency; low vitality and many other ailments including arthritic conditions.
Dr. Budwig ran afoul of the FOCs when she discovered that fatty substances in soft tumors contained polymerized fats of marine animal origin. These polymers are formed when highly unsaturated fish and whale oils are heated to very high temperatures. She knew these oils were used to make margarine, a partially hydrogenated fat that cannot be made without high temperatures.
The director of the institute where she worked had financial interests in margarine. He held patents on its manufacture including the hydrogenation processes that produced the toxic polymers she had found in tumors. He was afraid her discoveries would ruin margarine sales. He offered her money and ownership of a drugstore to keep her quiet. Dr. Budwig refused to be bribed, and in her official capacity made public statements warning people of the possible health hazards from consuming margarine.
Access to her laboratory was cut off. She was prevented from using research facilities at other institutes, and she could not get any more of her papers published in the fat research journals. This was astonishing because she had worked in collaboration with several hospitals, plus she held a high government post. It was her official responsibility to monitor the effects of drugs and processed foods on health.
Dr. Budwig courageously fulfilled her public duty in the face of FOC opposition and threats to her career. She left the government position in 1953 and opened the clinic where she has successfully treated cancer patients by nutritional therapy. Because this great woman was blackballed by FOC greed, EFA research has been slowed for over 30 years. Current investigations are merely following in her footsteps.
Cardiovascular disease and cancer are the greatest killers in modern society because we have become obese and malnourished. It's an insane paradox that most of the foods offered in the commercial marketplace ultimately fatten us up while our strength and vitality slowly shrivel and wane.
We eat too much junk food loaded with empty calories from starch, sugar, saturated animal fat and refined vegetable fat. Few would defend the nutritional value of junk foods. They're simply convenient.
A great deal of the foods we eat come from ingredients conveniently available at the supermarket. You buy wheat flour by the five-pound sack. It's refined and bleached white. That means the protein, vitamins and fiber have been refined out of the grain; the starch remains. The human body is built with protein not starch. It can't make disease-fighting antibodies with starch. In fact, you can live without starch or any other carbohydrates including sugar. Excess carbohydrates your body can't burn outright or store as glycogen in the liver are converted into sticky fats that can clog up your arteries. But sugar is delicious and a sweet tooth is fun to feed. If you're health conscious and concerned about what you eat, you have to look long and hard or go somewhere else to find any stone-ground whole-grain flour on the supermarket shelf.
You will have to go on a crusade not unlike the quest for the Holy Grail if you want to find food oils rich in cs-polyunsaturated fatty acids. Food oil companies don't make cold pressed raw vegetable oils because the cs-fatty acids - the EFAs - they contain are too unstable. Our bodies utilize that very instability - that sensitivity to light and oxygen - to enable the energy of life to flow through each of us. The high percentage of trans-polyunsaturated fatty acids in refined vegetable oils dampen the flow-of-life energy through our bodies, causing short circuits and brown-outs that eventually manifest as one or more of the degenerative symptoms of cardiovascular disease and cancer.
When I contacted Procter and Gamble to ask about the nutritional value and chemical content of the food oils and shortenings they manufacture, my call was immediately transferred to product nutrition information. However, the spokesperson was unable to answer any questions about the essential fatty acid content of their food oil products. Instead she offered to send me the free Procter & Gamble official product nutrition brochure.
Procter & Gamble's "Helpful Guide to Understanding Dietary Fats" says polyunsaturated fats are "Fatty acids with two or more double bonds, such as the essential fatty acids linoleic and alpha-linolenic acids. Previous studies showed that polyunsaturates can have the beneficial effect of lowering serum cholesterol. Recent studies suggest that moderation in consumption of polyunsaturates is desirable."
Proctor & Gamble recognizes that LA and LNA are essential fatty acids, yet they make no distinction between EFAs and trans-polyunsaturates in their fats and oils products. Instead they divide fat and oil content into three categories: polyunsaturated, monounsaturated and saturated. They downplay the issue by suggesting moderation. Of course, common sense says moderation is desirable when consuming any food. But trans-fatty acids are not food; they're artificially-altered unnatural vegetable fats and oils.
Like the tobacco companies, the FOC nutrition think tanks are very guarded when it comes to questions about the health value of their products.
I contacted the FDA to see if the government could shed some light on the nutritional value of vegetable oils. John Wallingford from the FDA's clinical nutrition division said the FDA has established no minimum daily requirements for LA and LNA. When I asked if the FDA considered LA and LNA to be essential to human nutrition, he replied by stating the FDA does not take a position on whether one type of food is essential to the diet, but prefers to consider nutritional value from the standpoint of a balanced diet.
"Is the FDA aware of the electro-chemical difference between the cs- and trans- forms of LA and LNA?"
"Yes," he answered, and went on to say FDA clinical nutrition scientists had completed extensive analysis of the European research papers on fatty acid value to human health.
"And what did they find?"
"The results were inconclusive."
Dr. Budwig's clinical reports and research papers are published in German. Europeans are way ahead of the US in realizing that bigger is not always better. They're turning away from the unnatural trans-polyunsaturates refined by the FOCs. The flax oil cottage industry in Europe is making a big comeback using the old cold press methods that make fresh, unrefined, nutritious oils. This trend is slow in coming to the US because most of the European studies haven't
been published in English. Our ignorance is fading now, and the FOCs are worried after seeing European trends in food oil consumption change, adversely affecting refined oil sales.
The energy of life is in the whole seed. And we should eat more whole seeds to insure we get enough essential amino acids and essential fatty acids, to build strong bodies and immune systems, and to maintain vitality and health. You can get the most of both by adding hempseed to your diet.
The amino acids in hempseed are complete and easy to digest. The EFAs in hempseed are in the optimum ratio for human nutrition, two-and-one-half parts LA to one part LNA. Hempseed can abundantly supply the human body with these essential nutrients. And the seed's outer shell safely protects the vital oils and vitamins within from spoilage. It's a perfect food in a perfectly edible container.
Ground hempseed has a taste similar to peanut butter only more delicate. And even more wholesome foods are being created from it by the new George Washington Carvers of hempseed, who like the original, work quietly out of the way, getting no respect from conventional wisdom. http://www.cancerdecisions.com here

Tranfusion Link to Cancer
Dr. Burton says it works something like this...
"A tumor, in its natural drive to sustain its own life, secretes compounds, called blocking factors, which prevent the body‘s natural defense system from destroying it. He warns that blood from supposedly normal, healthy people often shows a higher level of blocking factor than known cancer patients.
On one hand, this further substantiates my data that many people have undiagnosed cancer. On the other, when you give a transfusion, you pass on the blood donor‘s blocking factors. This can suppress the recipient‘s own immune system sufficiently to allow a tumor to develop. Then, this new tumor, in turn, secretes its own blocking factor, which inhibits the immune system further.
So, while cancer is not contagious, its blocking factors can be transmitted. In this way, a blood transfusion may destroy your resistance to cancer."--from an interview between researcher Sam Bizer and Dr. Kelly sambizer.com
According to Dr. Eck, diabetes is a precursor to cancer because they are both associated with anaerobic metabolism, which is a type of metabolism that occurs without oxygen. Aerobic metabolism is "oxidative metabolism" which requires oxygen to be completed. He claims that our bodies use both kinds, depending on what is being digested.
explains that sugar is burned by anaerobic metabolism in a process called
glycosis, which doesn't require oxygen for energy to be produced. On the
other hand, he says that proteins and fats require oxidative metabolism.
