Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Otto Warburg, discovered that he could produce cancer almost at will by lowering the oxygen level of tissues by 35 %. Tissues with low oxygen content are acidotic and raising the ph with alkalinizing therapy greatly increases the oxygen content of the tissue causing cancer to disappear. As we age our ability to keep our tissues well oxygenated gradually fails making the appearance of a malignancy more likely.

Living coral polyps absorb minerals (calcium, magnesium). Digestion by the living polyp converts these minerals from an inorganic poorly absorbed form to an organic readily absorbed form. When a coral product is taken the absorption of these alkaline minerals raises the ph and increases the oxygen content of tissues. The rising oxygen levels in tissues containing cancer cells makes it difficult for these malignant cells to survive. We think that taking 3 to 9 capsules of coral calcium daily is a good idea as the person who returns their saliva ph to 7.4 or close to that value should have an improved chance of killing their cancer cells and thus recovering. For this reason persons choosing CoQ 10, flax oil and cottage cheese, Essiac, Noni, artemisin, carnivora, graviola or some other alternative therapy for malignancy may wish to add coral calcium or another alkalinizing therapy to their therapy..

Specific Measures To Increase Your Chance For Survival From Malignancies:

  • Avoid chemotherapy and radiation as these therapies injure the immune system and impair your chances of recovery.

  • Eat only organic produce. Initially subsist on fruit and vegetables until it is clear you are improving (better appetite and strength with weight gain). These can be juiced or raw but should not be cooked because cooking destroys the food enzymes. Have 3 glasses of carrot juice daily. Cold salads with flax oil and Bragg’s raw apple cider vinegar are delicious. When you add cooked food (fish, grazed beef without hormones, chicken free of hormones), be sure to cook with virgin olive oil, unrefined coconut oil or butter. Eat no white bread, white rice, or white sugar. Our immune phagocytic cells are unable to kill tumor cells or bacteria for 8 hours after sugar is eaten. Avoid all sugar containing processed food from supermarkets by eating only organic food that will spoil. Eating only vegetables and fruit initially contributes to alkalinizing the body.

  • Drink only filtered water so you do not have the problems of petrochemical residue, pesticides, herbicides, chlorine, fluoride, and heavy metals in drinking water hindering your effort to recover.

  • Exercise regularly as this improves oxygenation of the body. Walking is fine (1 ½ miles daily) at least 6 days weekly.

  • Eliminate stress from your life. Many authorities think that stress plays a major role in initiating cancer. When we are stressed our adrenal glands steadily secrete large amounts of cortisone. Persons who endure prolonged stress develop a state of immunosuppression where the body’s immune system becomes less able to kill tumor cells. Prolonged damage to the immune system actually leads to death of nerve cells. Vietnam veterans have been found to have 8 to 15 % atrophy of their hippocampus the part of the brain involved in memory.

  • Be sure you are taking a good multivitamin, mineral and nutrient supplement. You need 200 mcg. of selenium, at least 2 grams of vitamin C with bioflavinoids, Vitamin D 800 or more units daily, zinc, copper, B complex, vitamin E 400 units, lycopene, carotene, magnesium, boron, manganese, etc.

  • Take Wobenzyme, a German special enzyme preparation, that is well absorbed. Many cancers are able to survive because they contain a fibrin coat up to 15 times normal that shields cancer cells from killer lymphocytes and immune surveillance. This fibrin mesh will slowly become dissolved with Wobenzyme. Wobenzyme alone has been found able to cure about 35 % of pancreatic cancers. Up to 60 to 90 capsules daily may be needed. Wobenzyme is found in health food stores.

  • Give your immune system a break. You must terminate alcohol, cigarettes, and recreational drugs as all three of these damage the immune system making recovery less likely.

  • Strongly consider raising your saliva ph close to 7.4 with coral calcium or some other alkalinizing substance as this makes it difficult for cancer cells to survive.

  • All persons in developed nations are exposed to toxic substances on a daily basis (heavy metals fluoride, mercury from amalgams, aluminum, cadmium from cigarette smoke, excess estrogen from hydrocarbons in the air, plastics, pesticides, herbicides, dioxins, and hormones used in animals to increase growth rate, transfats from processed food, margarine, salad oils, cooking oils, etc).

  • These toxic substances can be decreased by oral chelation. NDF uses nanonized chlorella and nutrients to chelate metals and remove toxic substances. The removal of metals by chelation from sites where they are stored underneath the endothelium (lining) of the arterioles greatly improves oxygenation and general health. A good oral chelator, Essential Daily Defense, can be obtained from Longevity Plus, Payson, Az. 800-580-473-1813. NDF is available from BioRay Inc.Los Angeles, Ca. 1-310-473-1813...Both substances are carried by 1-800-416-2806.

  • Get up to an hour of sunlight daily without sunscreens or sun glasses. This will help restore ultraviolet light, a critical nutrient, to the body and thus raise vitamin D levels so more alkaline minerals are absorbed.

  • Be sure you are taking flaxseed or oil, fish oil or perilla oil as 90 % of U. S. citizens are seriously depleted of omega 3 fatty acids which are absent from processed foods. When we lack omega 3 fatty acids our bodies are forced to use synthetic transfats to build the membranes that surround each cell. This forced use of the wrong oils creates flawed cell membranes leading to Type 2 diabetes, arteriosclerosis, obesity and malignancies.
