Cancer. A simple voicing of the word can ignite one or more of a plethora of emotions. What is this affliction? Why does it remain a leading cause of death despite modern medicine’s supposed advancedness? And why does it remain so enigmatic, so seemingly unsolvable? My intention with this work is to assist the unraveling of cancer’s mystery. And as I believe you will soon see my friend, there are many more answers than questions residing in the sphere of truth that have been kept away from the public eye for a very long time. The axis mundi of this sphere of truth has been immutably anchored by money and the power that comes with it. Some of what I will be revealing in this text you’re likely to find disgusting and deplorable. Yet what else should we expect from the powers that be who see human life as nothing more than cogs in the giant wheel that continually feeds their endless bank accounts. Cancer, as a disease, has become a tool, an instrument of tyranny that has pushed countless lives into subjugation. My hope is that the information presented here will spark a turning of the tide and place the power back into the hands of the people. As we leap headfirst into the Aquarian Age, may cancer disappear into the rearview.
In initiating this short treatise, I’d like to examine, as thoroughly as I feel is necessary, the physiological schematics of cancer’s exhibition in the body. Although, I want to express from the outset that the physical body, being an extension of the mind, is always amenable to the will of the spirit or to the metaphysical elements of one’s self. Therefore, despite the discussion we’re about to delve into, please know that I am not inferring that the body is immutably fixed, unchangeable to the divinity of one’s being. Rather, my apprehension is that the corporeal form is a vehicle for the experiencing of the physical world, and the creations we bring into its borders. Additionally, please know that by no means will I be insinuating any kind of disrespect or insensitivity as I talk about the curriculum comprising this work. I only wish to speak openly, but in speaking openly I must speak frankly at times. With that out of the way, why don’t we go ahead and jump down the rabbit hole?
To begin, let’s return to one of our original questions: “What is cancer?” Well, aside from being the fourth sign of the zodiac, cancer is usually defined as being a collection of diseases in which there is a displaying of unchecked growth of one or more groups of cells, with the condition being able to spread throughout the body. This definition is acceptable, but constitutes more of an observation than a classification, and I believe the ambiguity is intentional. The interests behind the medical establishment prefer that the layfolk continue to perceive cancer as a conundrum for if there were robust understanding among the commonwealth, the “cancer research” funds would quickly dwindle, and the conventional therapies currently dominating would be seen for the barbarism they are. As we make our way through the rest of this e-book, a more accurate picture of cancer will emerge, but for now we can say that an indication of this condition is the abnormal proliferation of cells, frequently in the form of a neoplasm or tumor. To provide some perspective, a neoplasm can contain roughly one million cells while being no larger than a pinhead [Figure 1.1]. At around a billion cells, a tumor can assume the size of a small grape where it may be palpated 1.
Figure 1.1 – Melanoma tumor cells.
Despite the typical definitions ascribed to the terms ‘benign’ and ‘malignant,’ benign tumors are not necessarily harmless. Not only can benign growths significantly interfere with the functionality of adjacent tissue, but they may also represent the product of a cancerous imbalance that has not yet evolved to a malignant classification. The conventional paradigm of simply removing or attacking cancerous cells does nothing (and often worsens) the imbalance(s) that led to the formation of such cells in the first place. Hence, there is no such thing as “curative surgery” in the realm of cancer, despite this label’s use. Cancer, as an affliction, is not the culprit, it is the law-abiding result of sustained irregularity, imbalance, and/or damage (speaking simplistically and generally). With some accuracy, we can say that cancer characterizes the cells’ final maneuver to perpetuate their existence in the face of ceaseless stress (again speaking generally).
While cancer is commonly stigmatized as a “genetic disease,” this is not the case as genes do not function as dictators, they are suppliers of information. How selections are made and then utilized from this pool of supplied information is guided by epigenetic factors such as thoughts, beliefs, toxicants, nutrients, and electromagnetic radiation. However, faults established within the genome can certainly increase one’s proneness to cancerous formations, so we need to investigate these faults. To give the first example, genetic irregularities may be inherited from a parent or induced during DNA replication. Mistakes or aberrations yielded during cell division can often be corrected at the various “way stations” encountered during replication, but if such corrections are not made, the dividing cell can either undergo apoptosis (programmed cell death) or remain as a carrier for the mistake or mutation 2. Mutations like these can then lead to cancer development as the DNA’s physical blueprint becomes more and more muddled 3. With a muddled blueprint, cells can lose their identity and “forget” their programming, sometimes reverting into an undifferentiated form (this fact is pivotal and we’ll come back to it later).
Next, predispositions for cancer development can be inherited through the passing on of oncogenes (proto-oncogenes that have acquired a mutation) which can increase an individual’s susceptibility to malignant tumor growth 4. Oncogenes can exert their maleficence by driving the unchecked proliferation of cells or blocking apoptosis, for example 5. It’s important to note that oncogenes can also arise from the exchanging of genetic material between a human and a virus in which a proto-oncogene from the human is incorporated into the virus’s genome, transforming the proto-oncogene into an oncogene and creating a highly oncogenic (cancer-promoting) virus [Figure 1.2] 6. This pathway stands as one mechanism through which viral infection or proliferation (involving such species as Epstein-Barr virus, Hepatitis B virus, and Human Papillomavirus) can contribute to cancer. Predispositions can also stem from the inheritance of mutated ‘tumor suppressor genes,’ genes involved in the protection against inappropriate cell division and growth, the stimulation of apoptosis in faulty cells, and the repairing of DNA 7. One tumor suppressor gene in particular, P53, has been shown to be faulty in roughly half of all known human cancers 8.
Figure 1.2 – Viral replication.
Relatedly, the activation of oncogenes and the inactivation of tumor suppressor genes can also arise from aberrant actions of DNA methylation, which can destabilize the genome and promote tumor formation 9. DNA methylation stands as a primary mechanism for the epigenetic regulation of gene activity, so a simple lack of methyl donors could greatly hamper this regulation. Methylation capacity can also be greatly impaired because of an inherited mutation or defect in the MTHFR gene, which codes for the MTHFR (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase) enzyme. The MTHFR enzyme is responsible for transforming ‘5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate’ to ‘5-methyltetrahydrofolate,’ the active and usable form of folate (vitamin B9). 5-methyltetrahydrofolate is needed to convert homocysteine into methionine, so a lack of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate creates an accumulation of homocysteine, which is associated with a higher risk for developing cancer (vitamin B12 is also needed for the homocysteine-methionine conversion, so a deficiency in this nutrient is equally bad news) 10. Furthermore, a disturbance in the synthesis of folate and methionine metabolites can also negatively impact the repair and expression of DNA 11.
Many carcinogens, whether they are taken into the body through the mouth, nose, or skin, exert their ill-effects by directly attaching to and modifying the structure of DNA, which increases the likelihood of mutations arising during replication 12. Additionally, many carcinogens can also upregulate pathways associated with cell division (making affected cells divide faster than usual) as well as embed themselves within cell membranes (distorting communication and the gateway-chaperoning of ligands and nutrients). In the absence of carcinogens, inflammation of cell membranes from other sources like microbial infection/overgrowth, toxicity, mechanical stress, etc., can disrupt the instruction provided to cells by proliferative hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. This disruption can then lead to unintended cell growth and/or division (especially in cells harboring a genetic defect or mutation) as well as insulin resistance. Insulin resistance, by itself, is another large problem with concern to cancer as insulin and the insulin-like growth factors are heavily involved in cell proliferation and apoptosis 13. High insulin levels in the blood can also reduce the concentration of sex hormone-binding globulin, which can then lead to higher levels of unbound estrogen – possibly increasing one’s risk of breast cancer 14, 15. Relatedly, leptin, a hormone produced by adipocytes (fat cells) that chiefly signals satiety after eating, can also inappropriately promote cell growth, the migration of cancer cells, and the ignoring of apoptosis commands 16. Furthermore, high levels of leptin output (from excessive adiposity) may exacerbate the etiology of cancerous conditions in which estrogen is involved by increasing the production of estrogen by adipocytes and other cells (especially when cell membranes have been upset and/or there is insulin resistance) 17.
Turning our attention away from DNA, let’s now look at the living matrix and its relevance to our interests. The living matrix can be incompletely described as the physical web of connective tissue and molecular components that links all of the systems of the body together to form a singular unit (more detailed information on the living matrix can be found in my other e-books). Adequate health and integrity of the living matrix is crucial in defending against cancer development for many reasons, with one of them being the role played by the glycocalyx piece of the matrix in maintaining the behavior of ‘contact inhibition,’ where cells detect the presence of other cells encroaching on their “personal bubble” so that collision can be avoided [Figure 1.3] 18. The avoidance of such contact is desirable because it could interfere with the cells’ motility and normal operation, but if contact does take place, usually a signal will be relayed to brake the proliferation of the coalesced cells. If cellular communication channels break down (due to ill-health or toxicity of the extracellular space for example), then the contact inhibition behavior mediated by the glycocalyx can fail and cells can grow and divide into large clumps where a survival-of-the-fittest pit fight takes place. This act is a hallmark of cancerous growths and paves the way for their infiltration of other tissues’ territory where they ignore (or don’t receive) commands for apoptosis and activate the formation of new blood vessels to supply them with nutrients and oxygen 19.
Figure 1.3 – The glycocalyx.
In combating the takeover of tissue territory, a healthy extracellular space will help to sustain clear communication and the highways through which immune cells can ultimately destroy growths that could get out of hand. Looking more deeply, another reason why the integrity of the living matrix is so important is due to the action of ‘cadherins’ – transmembrane proteins that help bind cells of a tissue together, improve cell recognition, and maintain tissue architecture (cadherins couple with cytoskeletons to form part of the functionally contiguous scaffolding that is the living matrix) 20. Defects or mutations in the genes that code for cadherins (or toxins in the extracellular space) can cause a weakening in cell-cell adhesion that makes it easier for the cells of a tumor to break off and travel to another part of the body. Therefore, having robust cadherins can aid in deflecting metastasis 21. Although, it needs to be stated that the spread of cancer within the body doesn’t have to be linear, that is, cancer cells do not need to break off from a primary tumor and then be transported away via the blood or lymph in order for another growth to appear elsewhere in the body (as is typically thought). We will go over the work of Dr. Wilhelm Reich later on, but a quote of his is apt here: “It is not necessary to assume that cancer cells are transported in the blood. Since the processes of shrinking and putrefaction are general, local tumors can form here or there, sooner or later, at any place in the organism. The case I described earlier…disclosed the fact that the location of metastases is determined by local spasms and disturbances of biological functioning. A cancer tumor may first appear in the breast as a result of a chronic spasm of the pectoralis muscle, and be followed somewhat later by a second tumor in the ribs or the spine as a result of local spasms in the diaphragm. Muscle contractions are evidence of a biopathic dysfunction and represent the general tendency of the organism toward contraction and shrinking” 22.
Let’s now move on to an introductory conversation on nutrition and hypoxia (deficiency in tissue oxygen) in the pouring of cancer’s foundation. I’d prefer to keep this talk introductory so that it remains within my intended scope for this e-book, and because I feel I’ve adequately covered nutrition’s criticality in my other works (mainly Vis medicatrix naturae: An introduction to nutrition for the mind, body, and spirit; Briefs in Clinical Nutrition; and Low-back pain: A holistic understanding of its prevention and resolution). Even though proper nutrition is absolutely imperative for the prevention of physical disease, I want to suggest that one’s diet not be approached from a place of fear. We don’t want our bodies to think that we mistrust their infinite wisdom and that we will definitely conjure illness if our diet is not perfect. Instead, we want to supply our bodies with the high-quality nourishment they deserve from a place of love and appreciation. This idea reminds me of something one of my basketball coaches used to tell my team and I, “Play to win, don’t play not to lose.” In this physical reality of ours, might I advise that we live to be healthy and free, rather than live to not be unhealthy – for equilibrated wellness is our natural state of being. Much of what a healthy diet can provide to us for our concerns is the maintenance of appropriate pH or acid-base levels and protection against oxidative damage. For instance, an oft-ignored avenue in the etiology of cancerous conditions is that of protein putrefaction within the colon that paves the way for intestinal dysbiosis (a negative change to the population of microbial life), an overwhelming of the liver’s detox duties, a poisoning of the lymphatic system, and a widespread disruption to pH levels 23. Secondly, oxidative stress from free radicals can be terribly damaging to the body and easily promote tumor formation through a number of means such as: weakening the integrity of cellular and nuclear membranes, direct damage to DNA and organelles, inactivating enzymes, blocking cellular communication, and decreasing ATP output from mitochondria 24.
More concretely, the formation of cancer cells stands as one possible but commonly experienced consequence of sustained oxygen deprivation – which could arise from a number of issues (like impaired breathing patterns due to poor posture or myofascial adhesions, toxicity of the extracellular space, patent foramen ovale (a birth defect involving a hole in the atrial septum), porphyria, iron deficiency, etc.). In the biochemic system of medicine, Kali Sulphuricum (potassium sulphate) and Ferrum Phosphoricum (iron phosphate) were commonly used in the treatment of cancer largely to counteract the suffocation of cells 25. Dr. Otto Warburg’s superb work in the early half of the twentieth century clearly demonstrated ‘tissue asphyxiation’ (and the buildup of carbon dioxide and hydrogen ions) as being strongly dispositive to cancer formation 26. One way in which cells can adapt to this tissue asphyxiation or a low-oxygen environment is to basically shut down or decrease mitochondrial respiration and shift to a greater reliance upon glycolysis 27. This shifting away from mitochondrial energy production may enhance the resistance of tumorous cells to mitochondrial apoptosis 28. Because mitochondria play key parts in the ‘intrinsic pathway’ of apoptosis activation in human cells, damage to or dysfunction within mitochondria can interrupt cell death signaling 29. Mitochondrial dysfunction can be invoked by pharmaceutical use, free radicals, mutations within mitochondrial DNA, nutrient deficiencies, various toxins, and electromagnetic radiation (among others) 30. However, apoptosis can also be switched on via the ‘extrinsic pathway’ in which ligands from outside a cell bind to surface receptors and initiate what is known as the ‘death-inducing signaling complex’ or a similar cascade 31.
Continuing, many cancer cells can functionally sidestep hypoxia’s threat and continue to survive by engaging a metabolic pathway that employs the amino acid glutamine in synthesizing lipids, rather than relying on glucose 32. This ability of neoplastic cells to avoid the danger of hypoxia leans stiffly upon the enterprise of ‘hypoxia-inducible factors’ in managing oxygen homeostasis and maintaining an environment in which tumor growth can continue 33. Oxygen deprivation promotes the assumption of stem cell-like states in cancer cell lines that facilitate sustained growth despite the lack of oxygen, but this state is reliant upon the roles played by hypoxia-inducible factors 34. Cancer cells that assume this plastic, stem cell-like condition are termed ‘cancer stem cells,’ but it’s important to understand that this condition is more of an archetype that cells can transform into to help ensure their survival. By this I mean that cancer stem cells are more the result of a cancer-favorable environment than the culprit in cancer development, as they are often viewed within the drug targeting paradigm.
With that being said, some naturally-occurring dietary compounds have been shown to exert either direct or indirect effects upon the self-renewal pathways of cancer stem cells, so utilizing the foods containing these compounds certainly wouldn’t hurt an anti-cancer program. Some examples of these nutrients include: curcumin from turmeric (seriously, is there anything turmeric isn’t good for?), piperine from black pepper, sulforaphane from cruciferous veggies, resveratrol from grapes and berries, quercetin from onions and apples, and lycopene from tomatoes and watermelon 35, 36, 37, 38, 39. Speaking of cruciferous vegetables (such as cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, bok choy, and Brussels sprouts), these foods are rich sources of sulfur-containing glucosinolates, compounds which can be metabolized into derivatives like phenylisothiocyanate and the sulforaphane just mentioned that can act as powerful cancer fighters 40, 41, 42. A few other foods which can be remarkably valuable for a cancer patient include asparagus, avocado, and walnuts 43, 44, 45. A paramount point that needs to be made is that many of the microbes that are capable of infecting or overwhelming the body thrive in oxygen-poor and acidic environments, and such environments within the body attract and nurture these microbes – which brings us to our next subject…
We’ve now come to (arguably) the most important content of this text – that of pleomorphism and its role in the formation of cancerous tissue. The true notion of pleomorphism, the capability of microorganisms to effectively transform into different species, is not typically accepted in conventional microbiology, which still clings to the invalidated B.S. of Louis Pasteur and Robert Koch. Pleomorphic transformation of microorganisms has been irrefutably demonstrated for a good century, yet continues to be ignored or tryingly discredited because its acceptance confutes much of allopathic medicine’s template. Just for your information, the existence of naturally-occurring, pleomorphic bacteria in the blood of ‘clinically healthy human subjects’ has been definitively demonstrated and reported in the medical literature as far back as 1969 by Tedeschi et al. (this is to my knowledge, but even further back is possible), and more recently (2002) by McLaughlin et al. 46, 47. Again though, outside of reporting in the medical literature (or outside of reports having been removed from or unaccepted by research journals), numerous researchers have revealed the pleomorphic ability of microscopic life. Gaining some comprehension of the nature of Mother Earth’s recycling methodology will be very beneficial in highlighting some of the true functionality of the human organism. Even though I’ve covered pleomorphism and ‘somatids’ (defined in a bit) in my free e-book on clinical nutrition, I need to repeat some of the material here, so let me begin with a basic overview.
The tightness of my historical outline here won’t be impressive, as our interests are going to pivot around the discovery and presentation of what have come to be known as the fundamental units of life and their centrality in cancer as well as health in general. One of the earliest researchers to observe these fundamental units and their activity was Dr. Antoine Bechamp (October 16, 1816 – April 15, 1908). A rival to Pasteur, Dr. Bechamp identified what he referred to as tiny granulations while experimenting with fungi and fermentation. Antoine named these granulations ‘microzymas’ and found that not only were they indestructible, but that they could morph into single-celled bacteria. After extensive analysis, Dr. Bechamp concluded that “the microzyma is at the commencement of all organization. And the microzymas of the destroyed bacteria being also living, it follows that these microzymas are the living end of all organization. The microzymas are surely then living beings of a special category without analogue” 48. During the same period of time, a like-minded neurologist by the name of Henry Charlton Bastian ideated or perhaps furthered from Aristotle the notion of heterogenesis (also known as xenogenesis or spontaneous generation), which describes the birth of living organisms from dissimilar parents or even non-living matter 49. Dominantly, Bastian argued that many of the microorganisms in the human body were more correctly viewed as offspring of disease rather than progenitors. The gravity of this conception will soon become more clear.
Going forward in time, the excellent work of the German zoologist, Dr. Gunther Enderlein, considerably bolstered the assertions of pleomorphism and the purpose of what Enderlein called ‘protits’ (Bechamp’s microzymas). Gunther superbly elucidated the symbiotic relationship humans share with many microorganisms and the cyclogeny (progression through a cell cycle) of the protits utilizing darkfield microscopy. Dr. Enderlein observed that protits cycle through a series of stages in which they become more pathogenic or more representative of disease/deterioration according to changes in the internal milieu. Chiefly, in shifts toward a more acidic environment (from whatever source), protits were seen to morph into variations of bacterial and fungal species. Enderlein also recognized that his protits were necessary for the maintenance and regeneration of tissue, as well as being more foundational to life than cells. In retelling the work of Dr. Enderlein, Christopher Bird explains, “He unequivocally asserted, while different types of micro-organisms normally live within the body in a mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship, with severe deterioration of the body’s environment they develop into disease-producing (!!) forms to create what he called dysbiosis, or “a fault in the life process.” Their action, said Enderlein, was not due to any perverse intent on the microbes part to harm it, but to their urge to survive at its expense! In their early development phases they lived in the blood to perform functions beneficial to health, in the later ones, they abandoned that role to assure their preservation” 50. Momentarily fast-forwarding a bit, Dr. Virginia Livingston laid down a very similar description of protits and their microbial manifestations in her research concerning the etiology of cancer. Livingston tagged Gunther’s protits as ‘Progenitor cryptocides,’ but it’s quite clear that much of her positions were influenced by curricula published by Dr. Wilhelm Reich, who we’ll talk about shortly 51.
Getting back on track with our timeline, the next major figure in the scene of pleomorphism and cancer was Dr. Royal Rife, a scientific savant who was ultimately poisoned (Dr. William F. Koch was poisoned similarly via arsenic injected into his toothpaste) by decree of the American Medical Association for his incontrovertible success with correcting cancerous conditions. In the early 1900s, Dr. Rife invented multiple gadgets including the Universal Microscope which allowed him to view living specimens without having to stain or kill any of the present organisms. Royal’s research led him to the identification of microbial entities that could be extracted from tumors and then implanted within healthy subjects (using experimental animals) to induce neoplastic growth. These entities were recognized as being pleomorphic and were seen to shift between four different forms. The four forms were labeled Bacillus X (virus or virus-like), Bacillus Y (also virus or virus-like), Monococcoid (bacterium), and Crytomyces pleomorphia (fungus) 52. Dr. Rife named the collective entity (encompassing all of its forms) Cryptocides primordiales, and I think it’s fair to say that Dr. Virginia Livingston, who frequented Rife’s laboratory in San Diego, simply made a slight change in coming up with her Progenitor cryptocides.
According to Barry Lynes, the author of The Cancer Cure That Worked!, Royal stated: “Any of these forms [the four forms of Cryptocides primordiales] can be changed back to “BX” within a period of 36 hours and will produce in the experimental animal a typical tumour with all the pathology of true neoplastic tissue, from which we can again recover the “BX” micro-organism. This complete process has been duplicated over 300 times with identical and positive results…In reality, it is not the bacteria themselves that produce the disease, but the chemical constituents of these micro-organisms enacting upon the unbalanced cell metabolism of the human body that in actuality produce the disease. We also believe if the metabolism of the human body is perfectly balanced or poised, it is susceptible to no disease” 53. Once again we see emphasis placed on the pathogenicity of microorganisms being primarily dependent upon the health of the human. Most profound however, is the fact that Dr. Rife developed instrumentation that was capable of eradicating pathogens by matching their “mortal oscillatory rate,” and it is through this means that Royal was able to resolve cancerous states in numerous patients. According to Drunvalo Melchizedek’s chat regarding Dr. Rife’s work in his book The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life, there exist 26 polyhedral geometries which “are the key to all the harmonics of the Reality” 54. Because the physical structure of a virus must be based on one of these 26 templates, a specifically tuned waveform can be used to eliminate any existent virus (or bacterium). In this way, viruses can either be exploded via an EMF harmonic, matched vibrationally and neutralized, or mirrored vibrationally so as to dematerialize (shown as examples #1, #2, and #3 in Figure 3.1) 55. Royal’s instruments were very effective at this kind of elimination, and contemporary versions using similar technology have grown to become wondrously helpful in the healing of a variety of disease states and conditions of ill-health.
Figure 3.1 – Waveform destruction of pathogens.
Moving on to another genius who greatly advanced our understanding of cancer, Dr. Wilhelm Reich (March 24, 1897 – November 3, 1957), working mostly during the first half of the 20th century, contributed heaps to multiple fields of study and not only was much of his literature and equipment destroyed by agents of the Food and Drug Administration, but he was also murdered by governmental pawns (he did not die of a heart attack as is commonly claimed). Wilhelm’s early research revolved around the development of neurosis and ill-health due to the suppression of life-force energy and one’s natural expression of sexuality (or to use his own words, the “physiological anchoring of libidinal conflicts”) 56. Dr. Reich’s intense examination over many years eventually lead him to an “unearthing” of the cosmic, vitalizing radiation he termed ‘orgone.’ In my words, Reich believed that orgone energy is what breathes life into living matter, and, using a sophisticated microscope, he discerned miniscule vesicles in living and non-living matter which he conceived as being “the elemental functioning unit of all living matter” 57. Wilhelm, having identified the microzymas of Bechamp and the protits of Enderlein, called these elemental units ‘bions,’ and deduced that they represent a transitional phase between the assumptions of animate and inanimate material (remember the heterogenesis of Henry Bastian). These bions were understood as being paramount in the bearing and distribution of orgone in the body, along with the regeneration and recycling of tissue components. Orgone, being the immaterial “lifeblood” of all organisms, cyclically charges the body and maintains its vitality. The body’s orgonotic cycle provides for the sustainment of health while shifts are continually made between phases or activities of anabolism and catabolism. Put another way, orgone might be regarded as the fulcrum between regeneration and degeneration, or more broadly, between life and death.
Dr. Reich realized that an imbalance instilled within this seesaw could set the stage for the development of cancer by inciting sympathetic dominance (dominance of the fight or flight branch of the autonomic nervous system) and persistent contraction of the physical body. Physiologically, such contraction interferes with oxygen delivery and waste removal (as well as mechanical disruption of tissue function), and this interference can then snowball into global dysfunction and breakdown. Metaphysically, contraction dominance constrains orgonotic charging of the body, resulting in a drop in the physical form’s life-force energy. An imbalance between physical contraction and expansion can stem from a number of sources such as the repression of emotion, psychological scarring from past trauma, toxicity issues, nutrient deficiencies, and the unhealthy banning of sexual expression. As a quick side note in special reference to sexual repression, Dr. Tien-Sheng Hsu, a Chinese family physician and psychiatrist, has made this statement from his own clinical observations: “…in Chinese society many women still think of sex as something to please men. Generally, they dare not open their mouths to ask for sex, and dare not face the desire for sex. This is especially obvious in cervical cancer patients” 58.
Reich divided the cellular environment into two main elements that reflected the efforts of expansion and contraction – these were the nucleus and cytoplasm. In explaining the onset of neoplastic growth, the doctor stated the following: “The affected cell nuclei attempt to compensate for the failure of the total organism by taking over the function of orgone energy discharge, which the total organism is no longer able to carry out due to orgastic impotence and contraction of the plasm system. At the deepest biological level, energy discharge, in the form of lumination and division of the nuclei, replaces the natural orgastic convulsions of the total plasm system. The profusion of cell divisions (mitoses) in cancer tissue thus becomes easily understandable. Since these divisions can no longer proceed in a normal, physiological manner, the nuclei vary in size. And since the plasm is severely disturbed, the formation of the nucleus must also ultimately suffer. It disintegrates into individual, strongly radiating bions. This bionous disintegration affects the total cell, and even extends to neighboring cells, reducing them to a formless mass of bionous vesicles…It is from this bion mass, which is spurred by the orgone energy that no longer functions harmoniously within the organism, that the protozoa called “cancer cells” now develop. The metazoan ceases to function, while the protozoan flourishes, as in a stagnant pond where energy metabolism no longer exists. Life sinks back and functions at the lowest biological level, for, where a metazoal organism can no longer survive, a protozoan and certainly a bion can still function. The cancer tumor thus is merely a late, palpable manifestation of a severe disturbance of the orgonotic equilibrium and unitary function of the organism. It is the result of a rebellion of the affected cell nuclei against the processes of suffocation and shrinking in the plasm. It is this rebellion that generates the “wild cell growth”” 59.
Wilhelm’s atavistic model of regular but weakened cells reverting into primitive, protozoal likenesses through the bion gateway was profound, and excellently illustrated the technique utilized by Mother Earth in recycling and perpetuating life on this planet. In my opinion, the dedifferentiation or devolution employed in the cancer pathology clearly shows a natural reaction or attempt at adaptation to imposed stress. Also highlighted here is the simplified means through which cancer can be prevented – holding relative equilibrium between the orgonotic poles of building up and breaking down. A healthy and vital body possesses the strength and resources to deter catabolic cascading, the “bionous disintegration” of tissue, and the final birthing of tumors. Adding another piece to the picture, Dr. Reich’s research revealed a prominent bacterial identity of his bions which appear in weakened, degenerating tissue; and according to his experimentation, these ‘T-bacilli’ could be extracted from all kinds of cancerous tissue, including precancerous tissue and the blood of cancer patients 60. In fact, after this revelation a highly informative blood test was developed for gauging one’s level of orgonotic charge and erythrocyte health, which made possible a quite accurate determination of the presence of cancer forerunning before the stage of tumor formation was reached. So much for the Susan G. Komen® Foundation’s propagandizing of cancer-promoting mammography, but I digress.
Reich’s T-bacilli, like the bacterial forms seen by the scientists previously mentioned, render embodiments that can be assumed by primal bions in a cancer-favorable environment. That is to say that the microbial characters we’ve talked about in this chapter are not the cause of cancer, but more the product of an unhealthy body that has invited their “setting up shop.” In treating cancer patients and helping to correct their etiologies, Wilhelm often applied individualized psychotherapy in addition to a rather simple device known as an ‘orgone accumulator,’ the latter being used to help the patient draw in extra orgone in order to vivify the blood and the rest of the body. While Reich reported notable achievement with the use of his orgone accumulators (many modern examples of which now exist and can be crafted on one’s own), I would advise being a little careful with this modality and wielding it as a supplementary therapy should you choose to try it.
The last stop on our overview of pleomorphism brings us to the work of Dr. Gaston Naessens, a French-born naturopathic physician and medical researcher. Exploiting the power of his invented Somatoscope, Dr. Naessens followed in the footsteps of his predecessors and detected the same pleomorphic, fundamental units of life which he christened ‘somatids.’ Gaston believes these somatids to be the primordial spark of manifested life derived from the cosmos that serve as the “tollbooth” through which light condenses into what is perceived as physical matter. Somatids are understood as holding responsibility in the division, differentiation, and dedifferentiation of cells, and under normal, healthy conditions, only cycle through three basic stages. This limiting of the somatids’ cyclogeny is apparently kept in check by what are known as ‘trephone inhibitors’ naturally present in the blood 61. These inhibitors prevent the proliferative hormone trephone, produced by the somatids, from facilitating progression through the rest of a sixteen-stage cycle where various microbial forms are assumed [Figure 3.2]. When the body becomes overly stressed or weakened (especially the immune system) from sources like electromagnetic pollution, inadequate nutrition, psychological trauma, etc., the level of trephone inhibitors in the blood falls, and the road is laid for the spurring of degenerative disease, including cancer. The specific spurring of cancer is enabled by the exaggerated levels of trephone convincing affected cells to revert into simpler, more primitive species 62.
Figure 3.2 – Somatid pleomorphic cycle.
Part two of the major cancer pathology has been labeled ‘cocancerization’ by Naessens, who explains it thus: “If the immune system is somewhat deficient and the new entity has been able to reach a certain proportion, it then attains a “critical mass” of cells in anarchic proliferation. This entity that has been able to escape from the immune system needs an enormous quantity of nitrogen for subsistence (the cells of this entity are moreover named nitrogen traps). It then emits a substance that allows it to withdraw nitrogen derivatives from the organism and that, at the same time, paralyzes the immune system. We have called this substance Cocancerogenic K Factor (CKF). The paralyzing action of CKF against the immune system appears only when the critical mass of cells in anarchic proliferation is reached. From this moment, the organism finds itself without defense against this new entity that can develop at will and progressively invade its host. We can conclude from this analysis that:
1. The cancerization, or initiation, phase is linked to the reduction of sanguine inhibitors and a weakness of the immune system.
2. The cocancerization, or promotion, phase is the direct consequence of a paralyzed immune system provoked by a substance called CKF. This substance is elaborated by anarchic cells in order to withdraw, from the organism, nitrogen derivatives necessary for proliferation. An understating of this process makes it possible to propose a therapy leading to the suppression of CKF. As a matter of fact, if the latter is neutralized, the immune system can regain its initial activity and consider each anarchic cell composing the tumors as a foreign body to be rejected” 63.
From this citation you can see that Dr. Naessens’ approach to the correction of cancer is not aimed at the neoplasm itself, but at the body’s own healing potential via the immune system. Having worked with thousands of cancer patients, Gaston’s main treatment constituent is the compound devised by himself referred to as 714-X (chemical name: trimethylbicyclonitramineoheptane chloride), which is essentially a derivative of camphor that is administered interlymphatically and operates by addressing the body’s white blood cells to modulate the immune system’s appropriate level of activity and cytokine release 64. Evidently, improved cellular communication is achieved through activation of monocytes and macrophages by way of the present camphor terpenoid’s shuttling of nitrogen. Inflammation can then be allayed, allowing for cellular repair processes to be jump-started. Stepping back a bit, it should now be fairly lucid that cancer, as a dis-ease, does not sit as some uncrackable mystery, but instead is “…nothing other than a premature and accelerated but “normal” dying-off of the organism” (this quote is of course a bit too absolute, but its accuracy makes it worthy of inclusion) 65. It should also now be very plain that the adherence to chemotherapy and radiation therapy by conventional oncology is not only incredibly stupid, but perfectly indicative of the field’s appalling pseudoscience and quackery. As only truth is eternal, I suggest the Cabal members defending the interests of the Rockefeller, Rothschild, and J.P. Morgan families pull their heads out and board the right train before they’re swung into oblivion by the winds of change (which are well on their way).
Shifting perspectives, I’d now like to open our awareness to the extent that we begin looking at the presentation of cancer, or disease in general, as an opportunity – an opportunity to reevaluate our beliefs and dispositions toward our lives. Being diagnosed with this malady certainly rings a very loud alarm, and may very well be the attention-getter that the body desperately reaches for in order to force a change in one’s focus. I feel it’s fair to say that after the appearance of cancer, one cannot help but to bring their awareness back into the physical body, and this may tender a sense of groundedness that either their cellular consciousness or some aspect of their identity was yearning for 66. Similarly, the illness may be surfacing to ask, “Why are you not pursuing your dream?” Or perhaps, “Why have you allowed for meaning to be removed from your life?” Does the arrival of cancer not firmly plant one on a road that inevitably involves meeting face-to-face with that which has been buried away (usually out of fear)? If so, this question brings us to another that the individual may have entertained, “Is death the best way out of my suffering?” Please know that I am trying to be very respectful here, but concealed desires for death or moving on can easily kick-start the etiology of physical disease (if they are genuine desires and not just fantasies being explored).
But that is not to say that basic fantasies have no power, for they may be stemming from some kind of root that will need to be pulled if the individual is to revise their dominant thoughts of a negative nature. As a tiny offshoot, this is one reason why a psychologist can end up being of far greater help in the healing of a cancer patient than an oncologist – for the body is not a machine, it is a material mirror of the mind and the thoughts, beliefs, and expectations traveling through it. This statement illuminates the fallacious model of the orthodoxy in their attacking of the cancer and their neglecting of the human. If only symptoms are addressed, the core is left to grow and find another outlet. And how many times has a cancer patient experienced a relapse after a period of “remission” when conventional treatment was used? Very frequently, yet why? Because nothing has been done to correct the source! Just so we’re on the same page, I’m yelling at the physicians who should know better, not at the innocent patients. The higher-dimensional entity known as Seth has spoken of these concepts in the past and I’d like to include a relevant citation of his here: “If you are sick, for example, there is a reason. To recover thoroughly without taking on new symptoms, you must discover the reason. You may dislike your illness, but it is a course you have decided upon. While you are convinced that the course is necessary you will keep the symptoms. Now these may be the result of one specific belief, or caused by a complex of beliefs held together. The beliefs of course will be accepted by you not as beliefs, but as reality. Once you understand that you form your reality, then you must begin to examine these beliefs by letting the conscious mind freely examine its own contents” 67.
So, the mind may need to be freed if extant dysfunctional beliefs are to be removed or reformatted into comprehensions of the nature of the reality one has created for themselves. If an individual truly wishes to detach themselves from their present incarnation and move on to another state, they have the right to choose so. However, if their desire is being clouded or masked by perceptions of helplessness and despair, then the underlying beliefs must be addressed so that the individual may gain a clear lens to see their life through. In this way, a rekindling of the passion for life can be immeasurably influential in the rewriting of cell programming and the unleashing of the body’s intrinsic healing faculties. Accordingly, perhaps, at least for some, the diagnosis of cancer can be looked at as a metaphorical traffic sign that indicates an approaching “T” intersection. And this intersection does not permit straight travel, a redirection to either the right or left must be made. These alternate paths do not exist as destinies, but as blank canvases upon which the individual may paint their wishes and experience the freedom, love, and abundance that is theirs by divine right if they choose to accept.
Probing these notions more closely, self-loathing, hate, or a lack of self-love can break down cellular communication to the extent that cells no longer ascribe to expressing the innate genetic blueprint and this can give rise to cancerous growths. Going further, insecurity or a foggy perception of what one is deserving of can create a desire for attention/caring from others (often as an offshoot of self-victimization) that serves to please and comfort the insecurity and/or continue distracting one from taking the reins in their life. Thus, self-acceptance and self-love are incredibly important for not only maintaining the integrity and clarity of communication networks, but also for ensuring that the information shared through such networks is reflective of love, harmony, and divinity. Thoughts or patterns of thought that are limiting or of a negative essence may crystallize within the tissues of the physical body and instill a kind of thorn that can fertilize decay through a strangling of life-force energy 68. This strangling can prevent the cell nuclei from being renewed to the point that there is death of the affected cells 69. For corroboration, the late Dr. Edward Shook, a well-esteemed naturopathic and chiropractic physician, has stated the following in regard to the use of Irish moss (or Chondrus crispus) in the treatment of cancer: “Chondrus is heavily laden with sulphates, all of them in soluble form. Its calcium sulphate does wonderful work in the organism, through its power to clean out any accumulation of heteroplasm or abnormal growths in the interstices of normal tissue. It causes the infiltrated parts to discharge their contents readily, so that they may not lay dormant, and slowly decay. This is the main cause of cancer, which feeds on decaying organic matter. Epithelial cells cannot remain healthy without calcium sulphate in sufficient quantity for their need” 70.
Emotional products can crystallize within the body in the same way as mental products and lead to the same problems. In fact, Dr. Tien-Sheng Hsu has taught that neoplasms can be materialized masses of blocked emotions 71. Moreover, Manly P. Hall, one of the greatest esotericists of all time, has gifted us with this apt passage of commendable insight: “Chronic dispositional tendencies result in chronic physical ailments. The peculiarities of disposition, as we nurse them through the years, set in upon us as bodily ailments, afflicting our later years with innumerable misfortunes which destroy our happiness and peace of mind. Nowhere throughout nature is the working of the law of cause and effect more evident than in problems of physical health. Take cancer for example. I have been able to assemble a large number of case histories which indicate that cancer is a grief disease. It is most likely to arise in the individual who has locked his disappointments, sorrows, and hurts within himself. Grief eats up the normal optimism of human nature, producing in the consciousness a condition identical with that which cancer sets up in the body. As women are more likely to nourish in silence the grieving of their hearts, the ailment is particularly prevalent among them. In three cases that I know of, a deep self-censoring remorse was followed within a year by cancer of the breast, and in each case history no cancer was known in the heredity” 72.
To offer another real-world account, Dr. Maurice Doreal, in his work Divine Healing, retells the following story: “Another lady came to me with a cancer and the doctor gave her six months to live. She had been in terrible pain for a long time. She had had one operation and it had been of no avail…Finally I found out she had been in love with her sister’s husband for about sixteen years…She had never let that out and she would have cut off her arm before she would have let anyone know about it, but it finally slipped out and I said, “There is one way you can cure that cancer. Go to your brother-in-law and let your sister be there to hear it and tell them all about it.” It took me about a week. She said she would rather die, but the fear of doing that was not quite as strong as the fear of dying, so one day she said, “When I get my nerve up I am going to do it,” and about an hour later she called me and said, “I came home and my brother-in-law was here and I began to tell him and before I got half-way through, it seemed as if scales began to fall off my eyes. Before I got half-way through I saw him differently, as the fat, funny little bald-headed man that he is,” and she said, “I do not know what I ever did see in him.” She was in love with a memory and had repressed that and holding it so tightly, a thought-form was created and cancer started. Seven days later the cancer had disappeared, that was seven years ago and she still has no sign of cancer” 73.
This account excellently illustrates the tangibility of thought and emotion, but also hints at the potential for “spontaneous remission” or spontaneous healing. I go over the major mechanism involved in spontaneous healing in my e-book Know Thyself, but this kind of event undeniably showcases the magic of the corporeal form. Many books have recorded cases of spontaneous remission taking place in cancer patients, but what is the process that accompanies instantaneous healing? A quote from Ramtha explains the answer beautifully: “What are miraculous healings after all, those that happen instantaneously? A miraculous healing is the reception – absolute reception – of physical transcendence. That means the thought [the thought of divine health and wholeness] is received pure in its context and the body is transcended immediately. An instantaneous physical miracle comes upon you when the thought has been pure, unlimited, and the aspects of unworthiness, self-denial, anger, and victimization have been eliminated. When the thought emerges pure and whole and held in that state is when the miracle happens” 74. We cannot forget the fact that we are spiritual creatures toying in a physical sandbox, so-called miracles are little more than reflections of the profound power that is always available to us.
In this final chapter, we will explore an assembly of modalities and medicinal proxies that hold value in the remedying of cancerous illness. Although, despite me just using the root remedy, none of the subsequent agents should be regarded as “cures,” but as aides that can be fruitful in bringing the body back into a state of balance. Of course, an abundance of misinformation and complete falsity can be found surrounding these aides which has been fabricated and propagandized by the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute, as well as individual asshats prostituting their imbecility to make a quick buck. While the main purpose of this chapter is to offer you a resource that you can rely upon, you’re obviously welcome to conduct your own research, just please be very careful and very thorough with that research. To start things off, there are a few things I want to say regarding the true medical establishment and the governmental agencies who perform its dirty work. While it is certainly not the focus of this text to fully expose the sophisticated schemas of the Zionist and Illuminatus powers as they appertain to human disease, I can’t help but to give you a taste via direct quotation from William Cooper’s book Behold a Pale Horse (an incredible treatise that I highly recommend): “It is a matter of public record that investigations into cover-ups of radioactive leaks into the atmosphere and into ground water have revealed that some leaks were not accidental but were purposeful. Some areas of the country now have such a high rate of cancer that virtually everyone who lives in these areas will die other than a natural death. The true extent of radioactive gases, waste, and toxic material, especially cesium-137, strontium-90, uranium-mine and -mill tailings, thorium-230, radium-226, and radon-222 that has leaked or has been purposely planted in the atmosphere, soil, and ground water is far beyond anything you or I can imagine. Every investigation has revealed that the true figures regarding radioactive leakage are much larger than official figures and the real numbers may never be known. Cover-up has become SOP (standard operating procedure) at all levels and in all departments of government” 75.
Cooper continues with the following: “According to Dr. Eva Snead, the San Francisco Bay area has one of the highest cancer rates in the world. The San Francisco Bay area has been revealed as one of the primary test locations of the Central Intelligence Agency’s biological and chemical programs. You may recall that Legionnaire’s disease was an experimental bacteria released into the wind on the San Francisco Bay from a government-operated boat. San Francisco is also one of the six known inoculation sites for the CIA Project MK-NAOMI (AIDS). The Bay area was headquarters for Dr. Timothy Leary, who introduced the drug culture to American youth under CIA Project MK-ULTRA. It is suspected that the San Francisco Bay area was also subjected to large doses of radiation to test the effects upon a population over a prolonged period of time. Why do they hate San Francisco? The answer is that the largest homosexual population in America lives in San Francisco and they have been targeted for extermination” 76.
Turning our attention to the demonic American Cancer Society and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, let me first state that these two organizations are nothing more than puppeteered playthings for the Rockefeller Medical Monopoly. They exist as two of multiple organizational instruments of barely-fathomable regimes of murder, torture, and criminality. If this revelation is news to you, let me extend a couple citations from a work of Eustace Mullins entitled Murder by Injection: The Story of the Medical Conspiracy Against America (another book I strongly recommend) simply to give you a tiny introduction to the war for cancer: “Critics have pointed out that Memorial Sloan Kettering had done practically no research on the prevention of cancer, only on its favored modes of “treatment.” The basic premise of its researchers, that the cell is solely responsible for the multiplication of cancer cells, is probably erroneous; however, it is the basis for all of their work, including their promotion of chemotherapy. In fact, the cell is probably reacting to outside infection or pressures, and the fault is not in the cell. The Sloan-Kettering approach dangles the promise of a “Magic Bullet,” which will bring the cell back to a healthy regimen through medication, or chemotherapy. The chemotherapy drugs include alkylating agents which actually inhibit cell growth. They are alkaloids, which hinder cell mitosis or cell division. Sloan-Kettering also bypasses the possibility of stimulating the immune system to respond to cancer growth, which is the normal method which the body uses to fight disease. This institution receives $70 million a year from various tax exempt foundations, including the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, which means that the American taxpayer is subsidizing all of this research. One hundred and thirty full-time scientists are doing research at the Center; all 345 physicians at the Center are also heavily involved in research. And what are the results of all this activity? A continued reliance on the now antiquated “cut, slash and burn” techniques still redolent of the “mad doctor” practices of the late Doctors J. Marvin Sims and James Ewing, dead these many years. While wedded to the ritual observance of these expensive, painful and futile procedures, the “Scientists” at Sloan-Kettering maintain a resolute phalanx of opinion denouncing various wholistic procedures which rely on diet, nutrition and vitamins” 77.
Mullins goes on to say: “Because “the fight against cancer” is totally controlled by the Rockefeller Medical Monopoly, grants are routinely awarded which are nothing more than rip-offs. One wag claims the ACS [American Cancer Society] will award a research grant only if the recipient signs a paper swearing he will not find a cure for cancer. Although only the tip of the iceberg has been revealed, there have been numerous exposes attesting that most of the “cancer research” is bogus, replete with faked results. In one of the more publicized incidents, the National Cancer Institute gave $980,000 to a researcher at Boston University, who was forced to resign after charges that he had falsified his research data…” 78. Of course, what I have relayed here is merely a small taste of the evil behind the medical industrial complex, but I feel it has served well-enough to shine some light on the truth.
Anthroposophical medicine and mistletoe
Let’s now get into the modalities, beginning with the contribution from the founder of Anthroposophical medicine. Dr. Rudolf Steiner’s system of Anthroposophical medicine houses an insightful explanation of cancer’s maturation in the human body and how the mistletoe plant can be used in correcting this condition. An introduction to Steiner’s system can be found in my e-books The Art and Science of Healing and Aromatherapy: A Satori Institute introduction, so here I’m going to dive right in to the relevant content. Anthroposophy sees the creation of neoplasms as mostly being the result of excessive activity in the astral body and I-being which partially drives the ‘sensory-nervous’ complex into the ‘metabolic-limb’ complex 79. According to Anthroposophical medicine, the astral body governs one’s senses and emotions in addition to carrying one’s spiritual sentience, while the I-being supplies the medium for self-reflection and identity consciousness. Next, the sensory-nervous complex is centered in the physical nervous system and basically allows for the awareness of the waking state. The metabolic-limb complex is centered in the limbs as well as the organs of digestion and reproduction and serves as an instrument for the will in circulating fluids and the formative force.
Rudolf has explained that mistletoe can aid in the resolution of malignant tumors by counteracting the patient’s “exaggerated earthly forces” and strengthening their astral body 80. This mechanism is powered by mistletoe’s etheric excess that is sapped from the tree to which it has parasitically attached itself 81. Essentially, the prescription of carefully-prepared mistletoe induces a balancing of the astral and etheric forces in a patient, which can contribute to tumor disintegration. Despite my short description, Dr. Steiner understood the condition of cancer as being a dis-ease of the organism as a whole, while emphasizing the health of the extracellular space and the tissue-molding role of the mesenchyme. For your reference, more information on the mesenchymal theory of carcinoma and the therapeutic use of mistletoe can be found in an excellent booklet accessible via the following link: . From a biochemical stance, evidence exists for the components of the mistletoe plant to be beneficial in preventing proliferation of cancer cells, obstructing angiogenesis provoked by cancer cells, and positively manipulating apoptosis pathways 82, 83, 84. Additionally, improvements in white blood cell action have been seen upon administration of a mistletoe extract 85. I’d also like to mention that the Gallic Druids held mistletoe in great veneration and viewed the plant as being potently medicinal (mostly because of its ability to attract and focus the “cosmic fire” or astral light).
I’d now like to spend some time discussing the use of essential oils in the treatment of cancer, though my intention is to tender information concerning their therapeutic value as adjunctive agents, rather than stand-alone “remedies.” Also, I only wish to confer a brief outline of aromatherapy’s rightful place in helping to correct cancerous conditions, as a thorough treatise is far outside of this e-book’s scope. For a more in-depth examination, I recommend consulting Essential Oils and Cancer: Proceedings of the 4th Wholistic Aromatherapy Conference, San Francisco, Nov 10-12, 2000, which may be purchased here: . There is no doubt that essential oils can act as powerful operatives in assisting the body’s return to equilibrium through a variety of avenues, and their healing power has been well-documented for a myriad of disease states. Focusing on cancer, many constituents of different essential oils have demonstrated strong abilities in positively influencing apoptosis and the arrest of cell cycles, blockading metastasis and angiogenesis, increasing the availability of antimicrobial reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, repairing DNA, aiding detoxification, and bolstering the actions of tumor suppressor proteins and transcription factors 86. While much of the research pertaining to essential oils and anti-cancer effects revolves around their concomitant use with chemotherapy and radiation therapy, I cannot condone this practice. Greatly poisoning and weakening the body through such cancer treatments not only debilitates the body’s own healing powers, but also notably pulls the rug out from underneath any essential oil administered. Put another way, aromatherapy is best utilized in supplementation with natural interventions aimed at strengthening, repairing, and cleansing the physical and/or subtle bodies (if you’re interested in more information on aromatherapy in general, you’re welcome to take a look at my free e-book Aromatherapy).
One of the major mechanisms through which essential oils can retard tumor formation is their effect upon the HMG-CoA reductase enzyme. HMG-CoA is an intermediate in the mevalonate pathway which is used in the manufacturing of a wide variety of products such as cholesterol, Coenzyme Q10, heme, and the steroid hormones; and HMG-CoA reductase is a rate-limiting enzyme in this pathway. Normally, a feedback loop is operational that ceases the production of additional cholesterol through the mevalonate pathway once a sufficient amount of cholesterol for the body’s current needs has been made 87. Yet in cancer cells, HMG-CoA reductase is typically ‘sterol-insensitive,’ which means that it does not fully respond to signals to turn-off isoprenoid production 88. Coming to the rescue, some terpenes found within various essential oils can functionally force the insensitive HMG-CoA reductase to turn-off, inhibiting the capacity of tumor cells to reproduce 89.
Moving on to a listing of some specific essential oils that may be beneficial in the resolution of cancer, here are a few great options with their relevant properties:
Sandalwood = apoptosis inducing and activating to tumor-suppressing proteins 90.
Lemongrass = apoptosis inducing 91.
Basil = antioxidant, DNA protectant, and anti-proliferative 92.
Rosemary = antioxidant and anti-proliferative 93.
Frankincense = apoptosis inducing 94.
Chamomile = anti-inflammatory, apoptosis inducing, and anti-proliferative 95.
Myrrh = draining of the kidneys and apoptosis inducing 96.
Lavender = anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and anti-proliferative 97.
Ravintsara = antiviral and immune response augmenting 98.
Niaouli = antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and cellular immunity augmenting 99.
Peppermint = antiviral and antifungal 100.
Lemon = antibacterial, antiviral, and antioxidant 101.
Ginger = antimicrobial, antioxidant, and stimulating to the phase II detox pathway in the liver 102.
Cardamom = anti-inflammatory and immune response augmenting 103.
Amygdalin (vitamin B17)
Amygdalin (sometimes referred to as vitamin B17) is a glycoside that is present, at least to a small degree, in a wide variety of whole foods. Amygdalin can be found in the highest concentration within the seeds of apricot, apple, peach, plum, and pear, with lower concentrations being found in most wild berries, macadamia nuts, walnuts, chia seeds, and flax seeds. Though it seems the best and most functional source of amygdalin is apricot seeds. The label ‘Laetrile’ refers to a patented, semisynthetic version of amygdalin, though ‘Laetrile’ and ‘amygdalin’ are often used interchangeably. Amygdalin is comprised of glucose, benzaldehyde, and cyanide, with the chemical name ‘D(1)-mandelonitrile-b-D-glucosido-6-b-D-glucoside.’ The glycoside’s exact mechanism(s) of action in regard to anti-cancer potential has been disputed for decades, but below I will attempt a concise outlining of what we know to be the case.
Evidently, hydrogen cyanide withdrawn from amygdalin is capable of destroying mutated cells (by effecting histotoxic anoxia), but it seems that the benzaldehyde product created upon contact with the enzyme beta-glucosidase is the main disruptor of cancer cells – for benzaldehyde has been shown to be carcinostatic (inhibiting to the growth of tumors) and selectively cytotoxic to tumor cells 104, 105, 106. Beta-glucosidase (which is mostly present in cancerous tissue, but also can be found in small concentrations in non-cancerous tissue) catalyzes the ultimate conversion of amygdalin into two molecules of glucose, one molecule of benzaldehyde, and one molecule of hydrogen cyanide, and is therefore responsible for unlocking the cyanide and benzaldehyde contained within amygdalin so that they may attack cancer cells 107. While normal cells typically exhibit low levels of the enzyme beta-glucosidase, many exhibit high levels of the enzyme rhodanese 108. This is important because rhodanese helps to neutralize any free cyanide molecules which could damage normal cells by converting hydrocyanic acid into thiocyanate (which also possesses anti-cancer activity) 109. So, tumors are very vulnerable to the compounds present in amygdalin, yet other mechanisms of action have also been elucidated – most of which revolve around impeding cell cycle progression and evoking apoptosis 110, 111, 112, 113, 114, 115, 116, 117, 118.
In conclusion, despite the erroneous claims of pro-cancer organizations as well as paid off libelers and perjurers, amygdalin’s efficacy has been well-documented. Having said that, neither amygdalin nor Laetrile should be mistaken for a “cure,” especially since amygdalin/Laetrile administration is not intended to be used as a stand-alone therapy. Proponents emphasize that Laetrile’s effectiveness is heavily dependent upon a healthy diet and possible supplementation (depending upon the patient’s nutrient status) with proteolytic enzymes (such as papain, amylase, and bromelain) as well as the micronutrients zinc, magnesium, manganese, selenium, vitamin C, vitamin A, and vitamins B6, B9, and B12 (with potential others). Lastly, amygdalin and Laetrile are usually administered therapeutically through an IV, therefore consulting with a knowledgeable physician is strongly suggested before their use is considered.
Dr. Johanna Budwig’s protocol
Dr. Johanna Budwig (September 30, 1908 – May 19, 2003) was a German pharmacologist who held a doctorate degree in both physics and chemistry and developed a highly efficacious protocol for the treatment of cancer. Dr. Budwig’s protocol consisted chiefly of a wholly natural diet that emphasized vegetable juice, clean water, some organic meat, and lentils, with the highlight being a mixture of flax seed oil and quark – a dairy product related to cottage cheese. Acidophilus-cultured, organic yogurt made from raw milk (cow’s or goat’s) can be used as a substitute for either quark or cottage cheese (also, a sprinkling of cayenne pepper, red pepper, and garlic can be added to the mixture too). Johanna explained that the combining of flax seed oil with a high-quality, sulphurated protein source allowed for the present fatty acids to achieve water solubility within the fluids of the body, and held that the electron-rich fatty acids (especially alpha-linolenic acid) were crucial for powering the life processes of the physical body 119. Alpha-linolenic acid is indeed a jack of many trades and is involved in such affairs as epigenetic modulation, cell membrane integrity, oxygen transport, and intracellular waste removal 120.
With specific regard to cell membrane integrity, Dr. Budwig underlined the dipolarity found between normal cells’ positively-charged nuclei and negatively-charged membranes 121. The ingestion of healthy fats helps to maintain this electric polarity, while the ingestion of unhealthy fats (e.g. hydrogenated oils) can be warping to it (more info on the body’s electric polarity can be found in my e-book The Art and Science of Healing). Although, omega-3 fatty acids (like those found in flax seed oil) are capable of displacing trans fatty acids that have inserted themselves within phospholipid membranes. Johanna saw the polyunsaturated fatty acids of seed oils with their pi-electrons (electrons exhibiting an overlapping kind of covalent bond) as prominent receptacles for the photons emitted by our sun, thus enabling seed oils in particular to operate as powerful donors of ordering and restorative solar energy 122. So, in my words, the core premise of Dr. Budwig’s approach is the repairing of communication channels, the cleansing of the blood and lymph, and the oxygenation of tissues – all of which can only be beneficial to a cancer patient.
Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski’s antineoplastons
Stanislaw Burzynski, MD, PhD is a Polish-born physician and biochemist who established the Burzynski Clinic in Houston, Texas in 1977. While in graduate school, Burzynski examined a collection of naturally-occurring protein compounds in the blood and urine of healthy subjects that, evidently, had not been previously identified or discussed in the medical literature. He later discovered that these compounds exist in much lower quantities in cancer patients and posited their involvement in anti-tumor activity, eventually naming the compounds ‘antineoplastons.’ Originally, Dr. Burzynski extracted antineoplastons from either the blood or urine of healthy donors, but now manufactures the employed antineoplastons in-house at the Burzynski Research Institute in Stafford, Texas (with phenylacetylglutamine, phenylacetic acid, and phenylacetylisoglutamine standing as the active ingredients in this manufacturing). Stanislaw suggests that a kind of secondary immune system exists in the body (called the ‘biochemical defense system’) which primarily acts to protect the body from the dangers of defective cells by regulating the expression of oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes 123. The soldiers used in this secondary immune system are the antineoplastons, hence the contention behind Burzynski’s therapy lies in the bolstering of natural defenses and in the reprogramming of defective cells by way of antineoplaston administration.
Despite the false and ridiculously lazy assertions aimed at discrediting the efficacy of antineoplaston therapy, a large assembly of research papers have clearly illustrated the value of Dr. Burzynski’s approach. The predominant mechanisms of action with antineoplaston therapy include: apoptosis induction, upregulation of tumor suppressor genes (one being the P53 gene mentioned earlier), impeding cell proliferation, decreasing metabolism of cancer cells, and obstructing protein isoprenylation (which can basically help turn-off oncogenes) 124, 125, 126, 127. Major side effects have not been demonstrated with the use of antineoplastons, yet a small fraction of recipients have reported such side effects as mild nausea, dizziness, and a small rise in blood pressure 128, 129. In the future (perhaps near future) antineoplaston therapy may be more widely accessible, but as of right now, the most realistic options consist of either visiting the Burzynski Clinic or seeking treatment outside the United States. I believe the Burzynski Clinic will provide you with a list of locations outside the U.S. where antineoplastons are currently being offered if you contact them directly with this inquiry.
Rene Caisse’s Essiac
Rene Caisse (1888 – 1978) was a Canadian-born woman who worked as the Head Nurse at Sisters of Providence Hospital in Haileybury, Ontario in the early 1900s. In 1922, while conversing with a female patient who had previously developed breast cancer, Caisse learned of an herbal formula prescribed for the patient by an Ojibwa medicine man (supposedly). This formula, now freely known, consists of a decoction using Burdock root, Slippery Elm inner bark, Sheep Sorrel (stem, leaf, and root preferably), and Turkey Rhubarb root. Rene later applied the label of ‘Essiac’ (Caisse spelt backward) to this formula and ultimately utilized it successfully in the treatment of a large number of cancer patients. The rest of Essiac’s history is pretty standard for any modality which challenges conventional approaches – the orthodoxy stated that it had no value and the unorthodoxy embraced its effectiveness.
The properties of the individual herbs comprising Essiac used in a stand-alone fashion have been well-established, but the exact properties of the formula as a whole are more difficult to elucidate. We must also remember that the aggregate action of administered herbal medicines depends on the energetic profile of the herbs used, and not merely the presence of “active components.” For the best results, growing the necessary herbs yourself is definitely a great idea. Collectively, the herbs which make up the Essiac formula have been shown to elicit anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-tumor effects in general. More specifically, Essiac has displayed significant increases in granulocyte phagocytosis (the gobbling up of damaged cells or pathogens by white blood cells), tumor-specific cytotoxicity, and CD8+ T-cell activation (these are killer T-cells used by the immune system to combat dangers like cancer cells and viruses) 130. Essiac has also exhibited potent scavenging of hydroxyl and superoxide radicals, as well as protection against lipid peroxidation (which can damage cell membranes) 131. Lastly, the herbs used in the Essiac formula exist as rich sources of quite a few vitamins and minerals, and together they can help to cleanse the blood and liver. Note that some caution should be employed if you are a Type 1 diabetic, have had your gallbladder removed, or have high blood iron. Additionally, other contraindications may be in place so please speak to a knowledgeable physician if you have any concerns before using Essiac.
If you’d rather not grow your own herbs, an Essiac tea blend that can be bought in bulk and has been recommended by others can be found here: as well as here: . Once you have the required fixings, Essiac tea can be prepared by following the instructions below:
Purportedly, the appropriate dosage for this tea equates to 1 fluid ounce (or 30 mL) diluted with 2 fluid ounces (or 60 mL) of hot water per serving, but I feel some flexibility is fine here.
- 6 and 1/2 cups (or about 120 grams) of Burdock root (cut into small, pea-sized pieces).
- 1 pound (or about 80 grams) of powdered Sheep Sorrel (stem, leaf, and root preferably).
- 1/4 cup (or about 20 grams) of powdered Slippery Elm inner bark.
- 1 ounce (or about 5 grams) of powdered Turkey Rhubarb root.
1. Mix the ingredients together thoroughly to create the blend you’ll use each time you prepare the decoction (if you aren’t using a pre-blended mixture).
2. Using a ceramic-coated non-stick or stainless steel pot, boil 1/2 cup of the Essiac mixture in about a gallon of clean water for a good ten minutes with the pot covered.
3. Next, turn the heat off and allow the tea to steep at room temperature for roughly twelve hours.
4. Reheat the tea to a steaming temperature (without boiling) and then let the tea set for a few minutes so that the herbs can sink to the bottom of the pot.
5. Finally, strain the spent herbs and pour the tea into glass jars. You can recycle the spent herbs as compost if you’d like.
6. Refrigerate the finished tea.
1-3 servings of Essiac per day are generally suggested, with the tea being consumed at bedtime an hour or more after your last meal for the day.
To conclude this text, I hope that the information I have written here has been, or will end up being, of some value to you as a cancer patient, a cancer researcher, or a healthcare practitioner. I haven’t much left to say other than it is also my hope that you find the best of success in the healing of yourself or the healing of another facing the window of cancer. May your God-self shine brightly and assist you fully in the direction you steer it. Godspeed my friend.
“Grant yourselves permission and grant yourselves the right to create life, as you desire it to be, for you have the ability to create it that way. All you need to do is remind yourself that your ability to conceive of that idea is, in and of itself, the indication of your ability to create that idea.” – Bashar

The primary intention behind the writing of this e-book was to offer a truthful, correct, and accurate resource regarding the etiology of cancer and the appropriate approaches for its correction. I have attempted to provide a thorough and comprehensive curriculum while keeping the discussions concise and accessible (though I must say much of the physiological content is oriented more toward healthcare providers or those with some background in the workings of the body). The bulk of the material presented in this text is crucial for understanding the mechanisms through which cancer may manifest in the body and reaches far beyond the embarrassing comprehensions of conventional oncology. Relatedly, a brief talk on the efforts to suppress truthful information and beneficial therapies concerning cancer by such organizations as the American Cancer Society and the American Medical Association is contained within. The text concludes with an examination of a collection of therapeutics for cancer that includes: Anthroposophical medicine's use of mistletoe; essential oils; amygdalin (also known as vitamin B17); Dr. Johanna Budwig’s protocol; Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski’s antineoplastons; and Rene Caisse’s Essiac. I sincerely hope that this e-book will be of at least some use to you either as an individual facing cancer or as a healthcare practitioner who may work with those facing cancer.
