Oxygen and Cancer
We can live a long time without food, a couple of days without drinking, but life without breath is measured in minutes. Something so essential deserves our full attention but rarely gets it unless you are a yoga practitioner.
The makeup of the human body is largely composed oxygen (O2) water (H2O), carbon, bicarbonate and CO2 (Oxygen’s necessary twin gas), magnesium, sulphur and then a host of other important substances like iodine and selenium and all the basic amino acids etc. We need all the basic building blocks of life and even the absence of just one vitamin can make us sick.
We need carbon and oxygen every moment of everyday or we will die. Our lives are fed second to second from the twin gases of O2 and CO2.
The prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the use of oxygen in normal body cells by fermentation of sugar/glucose.
Oxygen levels are sensitive to many influences:
- Emotional stress,
- Physical trauma,
- Reduction of atmospheric oxygen,
- Nutritional status,
- Lack of exercise,
- Improper breathing
All of which will affect the oxygen levels in our bodies.
Any element that threatens the oxygen carrying capacity of the human body will promote cancer growth.
Likewise any therapy that improves the oxygen function can be expected to enhance the body’s defences against cancer.
In order for cancer to ‘establish’ a foothold in the body it has to be deprived of oxygen and become acidic.
If these two conditions can be reversed cancer could theoretically, not only be slowed down, but it could actually be overturned.
Oxygen is one of the sources of health. Oxygen is essential to the human body, extending effects beyond breathing.
For example,not enough oxygen to the brain is the main cause of memory loss, inability to find the right words, getting words mixed up and not being able to speak in sentences.
In the 1920s Dr Otto Warburg carried out a great deal of work on cancer’s basic mechanism and was awarded a Nobel Prize in 1932. Warburg’s work clearly demonstrated that cancer is, fundamentally, a relatively simple disease where cell oxygen levels fall to a level sufficiently low enough for the cell to change in nature. Without a dependable supply of oxygen, the cells in our bodies cannot function properly. Nutrients in our diets must have oxygen present to convert their potential energy into usable energy. In order for new cells to be formed, hundreds of amino acids must link together using oxygen as the source of their energy.
All normal body cells meet their energy needs by respiration of oxygen, whereas cancer cells meet their energy needs in great part by fermentation in an acidic, anaerobic environment.
Poor oxygenation comes from a build-up of carcinogens and other toxins within and around cells, which blocks and then damages the cellular oxygen respiration mechanism. As more acid wastes back up, a chronically over acidic body pH corrodes body tissue.
Cancer needs anaerobic – airless – conditions to grow and spread.
In 1966, after his efforts had been ignored by the cancer industry for over thirty years, Warburg addressed a group of fellow Nobel Laureates, reiterating his views and concluded, “Nobody today can say that one does not know what cancer and its prime cause be. On the contrary, there is no disease whose prime cause is better known.”
Dr Warburg’s work has never been refuted but it certainly has been avoided by orthodox oncology.
Medical scientists are excited to have uncovered what they thought was a brand new approach to cancer treatment. Because they never paid Warburg any attention they thought that by increasing an oxygen supply to tumour cells they would help them grow. But actually by oxygenating the cell they found the opposite and were able to do a better job of killing them.
A healthy cell breathes oxygen for energy. A cancer cell shuns oxygen and ferments sugar instead for its energy requirements.
Lack of oxygen is followed by fermentation of sugar in cells, which then leads to the primary condition upon which cancer, infectious and inflammatory processes feed.
Viruses are “anaerobic” creatures which thrive in the absence of oxygen. Yeast, mould and fungus live in an anaerobic environment. Most strains of harmful bacteria (and cancer cells) are anaerobic and are not comfortable in the presence of higher oxygen levels so doctors will find cancer cells easier to kill when oxygen levels are increased.
What they did not guess at is that O2 levels can be dramatically increased by the simple administration of sodium bicarbonate. Increasing Co2 levels through the use of sodium bicarbonate is good in cancer treatment because bicarbonate drives up CO2 levels in the blood, which increases oxygenation to the cells.
Sodium bicarbonate is safe when taken with appropriate caution and knowledge, extremely inexpensive and effective when it comes to reducing cancer tissues. It’s an irresistible chemical, cyanide to cancer cells for it hits the cancer cells with a shock wave of alkalinity, which allows much more oxygen into the cancer cells than they can tolerate. Cancer cells do not survive well in the presence of higher levels of oxygen.
Oncologist Dr. Tullio Simoncini, the founder of the bicarbonate approach to cancer, believes that only several types of cancer can be approached through oral application of bicarbonate. He suggests expensive and hard to get (meaning hardly any physician will do them in any country) medical procedures (placement of catheters) and IVs to get the bicarbonate as close to the tumours as possible.
Dr. Simoncini never realized that when bicarbonate is taken orally the full body pH is shifted dramatically higher affecting all tissues including the brain and bones. He does not understand that oral administration is actually a superior method for all cancers because higher pH and oxygen levels can be maintained 24 hours a day constantly wearing down tumours and individual cancer cells wherever they might be. The different in costs between oral and transdermal dosing with bicarbonate and catheters and IVs is enormous with the oral weighing in at pennies a day. That alone can make the difference between life and death for millions of people who could not get and cannot afford expensive treatments.
Just as there are many ways to skin a cat there are many important ways to approach cancer and the task of increasing O2 to all the bodies’ tissues. Other doctors have concentrated on :
- hydrogen peroxide,
- hyperbaric oxygen chambers.
- proper breathing (which is very important) and
- magnesium supplements
