Immune System Support For Cancer

Cancer does not develop for some unknown reason. Once you understand why and how it develops, and learn how to support your body so that it may more effectively fight cancer, it may never be too late to get healthy again. (No matter what type, they have the same underlying causes.) Cancer is a natural process where, to put it simply, an overworked and weakened immune system cannot kill it as fast as it is multiplying. Toxins, carcinogens, radiation, even viruses, combined with an unhealthy internal environment, and in conjunction with a weakened immune system, cause more cells to turn cancerous, and allows them to thrive.

What you will be reading in this report isnít about a cure for cancer. It isnít medical advice. Nor is it in conflict with what your doctor may be telling you to do. Chemotherapy or radiation or whatever, doesnít seem to reduce their benefits. So work with your doctors. And consider the information here as something additional to do, that may improve your chances of recovery. That wonít interfere with whatever course of treatment you choose to do. Itís about how to make your body more healthy so that it has a much better chance of fighting the cancer. Sort of like saying if you eat more broccoli, or more servings of fresh fruits and vegetable, youíll be giving your body nutrients that will possibly make you healthier and thus better able to deal with or prevent cancer. More specifically, this report is about what you can do to create healthy internal environment in your body.

If you change your internal environment to one where cancer cannot thrive, it has a much harder time surviving. Just as we couldnít live on Mars with no oxygen, cancer canít exist in cells where there is enough oxygen. Unfortunately, all too often our cells are low in oxygen. Fortunately it is possible to increase the levels of oxygen in cells. Making your bodyís internal environment a place where cancer canít easily survive. Doing this in conjunction with strengthening the immune system, naturally supporting the fight against cancer and correcting other aspects of the internal environment, can strengthen the body and weaken the cancer to the point where the cancer dies off.

This is a safe, effective and intuitive approach to regaining health if you have cancer, or to prevent cancer from forming in the first place. Because it is supporting the body, it has the possibility of helping no matter how far advanced a particular cancer is.

This is not a medical decision. It is not a choice of following a natural program or a medical model. It is in addition to whatever medical treatments you do. Like eating and drinking healthier food and water, with these being super-potent foods and waters. A person can do whatever their doctor recommends to treat cancer and still use these supplements. Generally side-effects of chemotherapy or radiation therapy will be reduced. And recovery is faster after surgery.

How did I get to writing this report?

For years it had seemed to me that cancer was a dread disease only a lucky few survived. That sort of just happened to you, and there wasnít too much to do about it if it was too far along. Then a few years ago I was chatting with a friend.

He mentioned his motherís battle with cancer. She had had tumors throughout her body, several on her spine, in her legs and more. Her doctors said her cancer was terminal, and sent her home with a couple of weeks or so to live. However, a person who had himself recovered from terminal cancer by taking large quantities of a wild edible blue green algae talked her into eating it. A huge amount of it. She worked up to taking 60 capsules a day. A few months later, when she went in for a cat scan, the tumors were gone.

Later on, because I was intrigued as it turned my notions of cancer upside down, I asked him if he knew of anyone else who had used this algae with their cancer. He told me about a lady hospitalized with cancer who had heard about his momís recovery. This lady had already been eating this algae, about six capsules a day. She was very bad off. Wasted away and dying. In fact her doctors had said they had never seen a person still alive with as much cancer in her body as she had. (I suppose it could be that the small amount she was taking was helping to keep her alive a bit longer.) Her family started giving her 60 capsules a day of this algae. She improved and became cancer free.

There are lots of stories of people naturally recovering from cancer. In all sorts of different ways. The trick is to find what is the most effective support for the body that helps most often. These stories were the first I had heard. They made me realize that advanced cancer isnít necessarily a death sentence, and that it is never too late.

I asked my friend how often did this seem to work? (From what he had seen. Nothing scientific here.) What the numbers were? He thought a bit, and said that of the 14 or so people diagnosed with terminal cancer he knew of who took this algae in large quantities, all had regained their health. I donít know how many, but several if not all of them, were also using other natural products that also supported the body in its fight with cancer. However it was the algae that seemed to be of primary importance. He mentioned that other people had heard about this and had chosen not to use it or only tried it in small amounts. Understandably, as eating algae sounds pretty strange to us here in the West. And it is a bit costly. Unfortunately, as their cancers were terminal, they died. (Made me a believer in the big gun theory of cancer. If itís not something that is going to harm the body, but is really only supporting the health of the body, the more you take the better. You canít take too much, only too little. Well, thatís my theory at any rate.)

Over the years I have heard about many other things that helped with cancer. The area that attracted my attention was how oxygen effects cancer. Not only because I heard of a wide range of successes. Stories of a cancer clinic in Taiwan that was getting 80% remissions using an oxygen and hydrogen supplement that oxygenated cells. Again using massive doses, five times the normal amount. Or of people zipping up in pressurized oxygen suits and saturating their body with oxygen and the cancer disappearing. But I was also intrigued because it made sense. Iíll explain why in a minute.

Ed McCabe, a noted oxygen researcher, in an article in Well Being Journal gives some examples of how oxygen seems to help with cancer.

ďDallas TV 11 had to repeat the Francis Guido story because there was so much demand for it by viewers. Francis loves to garden. One day she ďNo longer felt good.Ē Pancreatic Cancer. Blood work and CAT scans every 4 months confirmed its continuing growth for a year and a half. Finally her doctor told her there was ďnothing more they could do,Ē and sent her home to die. She had no energy, couldnít get out of bed, or brush her teeth. Food would stick in her throat. She prayed over her dilemma, and the name of a local Naturopath popped into her mind. By this time her throat was so closed off she stopped drinking water. Dr. Revis helped her to drink an 8-ounce glass of water with drops of the supplement ďHydroxygen PlusĒ in it. Over a month she worked up to 72 drops per day. She started eating and drinking again. When she returned to her medical doctors they scanned all of her organs and bones, from head to toe, and couldnít find any trace of Cancer! A year and one half later, she looks so much younger, alive and vital, no one recognizes her at the supermarket. She reports: ďIím not dying! The Hydroxygen works, but you have to want to live, and continue doing it.Ē

He continues, ďLetís take the case of Joe Ritter, 66, from Fallbrook, California. Throat Cancer and surgery combined with 40 radiation treatments left him burnt and scarred inside. He heard about and started taking the Hydroxygen supplement, and when I interviewed him he was working out at the gym 4 hours a day, and considering himself way ahead of others who had the same surgery and radiation a year ago. He has the blood pressure of a 20 year old, the lowest his has ever been.

ďFor a variety of reasons not everyone gets the same results with any supplement, but itís hard to pass by another of my interviews, this one was with William Lee. Heís 69, he loves fishing, hunting, yardwork, and working with flowers in South Dakota. He had 4 heart attacks, and after a stressful period his Cancer of 6 years ago flared up in his colon, stomach, blood, and prostate. His Naturopath guided him, working him up to taking high dosages of the Hydroxygen, several times a day for the past 7 months. He had the usual classic cleansing reactions as the body finally had the building block raw materials needed to purge itself of unwanted diseased tissue. He reported lumps of foul smelling substances that looked like ďrotten hamburgerĒ flushing out of his colon, his urine was strong and dark, and he had occasional headaches. As he said, ďThe Hydroxygen is doing its job!Ē His doctor reports heís free from the Cancer, his heart is improving tremendously, and all previous heart pains have disappeared. William concludes: ďItís a fantastic product.Ē

Again, this isnít about a cure for cancer. It is about supporting the body in the strongest possible way so that it can heal itself. I consider testimonies to be an indication that a particular way of supporting the immune system seems to work for some people so it may be worth investigating to see if it makes sense. It doesnít mean that a particular product is a cure for cancer or that it will work for you or anyone you know. This is educational information about cancer which may help you make a more informed decision as to whether there is any way to support the immune system and the health of the body that may increase your likely of surviving cancer.

I donít feel there is such actually such a thing as a cure for cancer. No more than there is a cure for obesity. Cancer is a perfectly natural process. A very small percentage of cells in every person who has ever lived turn cancerous. And the body usually got rid of those cancerous cells before they did harm. This process has been going on for eons. It is only when more cancer cells are being created then the body can get rid of that the problem comes. And that problem certainly has come in the last 50 years as the amount of toxins, carcinogens and possibly cancer causing viruses have dramatically increased while our immune systems have become significantly overworked and weakened.

Carcinogens, toxins and viruses may actually be, in a sense, secondary causes of cancer. The underlying cause of all cancers, no matter what type, may have been discovered by Otto Warburg over 50 years ago. He actually won two Nobel Prizes for discovering the clues to why cancer develops. His later research, and the research of other cancer investigators, back up his contention. Cancer development seems to be connected to...

Cellular Oxygen Levels

Lack of cellular oxygenation may be the prime factor leading to cancer.

In 1931 Dr. Warburg won his first Nobel Prize for work proving cancer is caused by a lack of oxygen respiration in cells. He stated in "The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer" that the cause of  cancer is no longer a mystery, we know it occurs whenever any cell is denied 60% of its oxygen requirements.

ďCancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar. All normal body cells meet their energy needs by respiration of oxygen, whereas cancer cells meet their energy needs in great part by fermentation. All normal body cells are thus obligate aerobes, whereas all cancer cells are partial anaerobes.Ē

Lack of oxygen can be caused through a buildup of carcinogens and other toxins within and around cells, which blocks and then damages the cellular oxygen respiration mechanism. Clumping up of red blood cells slows down the bloodstream and restricts flow into capillaries. Which also causes poor oxygenation. Even lack of the proper building blocks for cell walls, essential fatty acids, restricts oxygen exchange.

What Warburg and other researchers found was that the respiratory enzymes in cells, used to make energy aerobically, die when cellular oxygen levels drop. When this happens, the cell can no longer produce energy aerobically. So, if the cell is to live, it must, at least partially, ferment sugars. Cells that produce energy by fermenting sugars can become cancerous. According to Warburg, oxygen respiration is required for cells to function properly.

Cells that must switch to producing energy anaerobically because of low oxygen levels and death of their respiratory enzymes, lose their functionality if oxygen levels drop too low. Fermentation allows these cells to survive, but they can no longer perform any functions in the body or communicate with the body. Consequently, they are only able to multiply and grow. And become cancerous. Or perhaps it would be better to say, they are cancer. Fundamentally, cancer cells may indeed just be cells that are trying to survive when they lack enough oxygen to produce energy aerobically.

I went online to research what Dr. Warburg was actually saying. It seemed like most every oxygen site was quoting a sentence of two from him, but I thought I should find out what he was really saying. Thatís where I learned the above information. It turns out that some researchers at the National Cancer Institute, Dean Burn and Mark Woods, (Dean actually translated some of Warburgís speeches.) decades ago if I am not mistaken, conducted a series of experiments where they measured the fermentation rate of cancers that grew at different speeds. What they found supported Dr. Warburgís theory. Because the cancers with the highest growth rates had the highest fermentation rates. The slower a cancer grew, the less it used fermentation to produce energy.

There were some researchers who claimed that this theory was not valid because they had measured a particularly slow growing cancer, and found no fermentation at all. And if cancer could grow with no fermentation, then fermentation and lack of oxygen respiration was not the cause of cancer. Dean Burn and Mark Woods went back to the lab, and reevaluated the results. Using more sophisticated equipment, they determined that the test these researchers used to measure fermentation levels was not accurate enough to catch the fermentation at these low levels. The new test using the more accurate equipment showed fermentation was still being used, albeit at very low levels.

This was confirmed by Pietro Gullino, also of the National Cancer Institute, who devised a test which showed that this slow growing cancer always produced fermentation lactic acid. Silvio Fiala, a biochemist from the University of Southern California, also found that this slow growing cancer produced lactic acid, and that itís oxygen respiration was reduced.

This theory and research is very interesting. It explains why there is never cancer of the heart. You see, the body does not allow heart cells to produce energy anaerobically. If anaerobic fermentation were to take place in heart muscles, lactic acid would build up in the heart. This could shut down the heart, just as if you were having a heart attack, and you die. So the body doesnít allow heart muscles to produce energy through anaerobic fermentation. Heart cells just stop working when they canít produce energy using oxygen. Consequently, they donít get cancer because the cells cannot product energy through fermentation so they canít lose their functionality and grow in an uncontrolled manner, turning into cancer. In a sense, they may lose their functionality, but they cannot grow so they donít turn into cancer.

(The heart can get congestive heart failure when enough of its cells are not able to produce energy aerobically. Because every cell must just sit there doing nothing. Which is one reason CoEnzyme Q10 is so important for this situation. Cells cannot produce energy using oxygen respiration if they are out of CoQ10. It may also be the reason why CoQ10 has proved to be of help for breast and several other types of cancer.)

Further research proved that by turning down oxygen levels, cells began to produce energy anaerobically, and ultimately became cancerous if levels went low enough. It took a reduction of 35% in oxygen levels for this to happen.

J.B. Kizer, a biochemist and physicist at Gungnir Research in Portsmith, Ohio explained, ďSince Warburg's discovery, this difference in respiration has remained the most fundamental (and some say, only) physiological difference consistently found between normal and cancer cells. Using cell culture studies, I decided to examine the differential responses of normal and cancer cells to changes in the oxygen environment.

"The results that I found were rather remarkable. I found that... "high 02 tensions were lethal to cancer tissue, 95 percent being very toxic, whereas in general, normal tissues were not harmed by high oxygen tensions. Indeed, some normal tissues were found to require high 02 tensions. It does seem to demonstrate the possibility that if the 02 tensions in cancer tissues can be elevated, then the cancer tissue may be able to be killed selectively, as it seems that the cancer cells are incapable of handing the 02 in a high 02 environment."

I bring up all this research because there are scientists and others who deny that Warburgís theory is valid because of this originally inaccurate measurement of the amount of fermentation in slow growing cancer. In fact I went to Quackwatch and found a scientist saying there was no research at all supporting Warburgís theory. While in fact, according to what I read, in the past researchers at the National Cancer Institute, and other scientists, had done research which supports this theory.

Research Implications

Probably the main implication is that an effective way to support the bodyís fight against cancer may be to get as much oxygen as you can into the cells. At the very least increase oxygen could possibly help slow down the growth of cancer cells. Which could give the body more time to kill them off. Raising the oxygen levels of still normal cells might also help prevent them from becoming cancerous. And it could possibly help kill the cancerous cells.

A nurse who works in medical research said, ďItís so simple. I donít know why I never thought of it before. When weíre working with cell cultures in the lab, if we want the cells to mutate, we turn down the oxygen. to stop them, we turn the oxygen back up

Ma Lan, MD and Joel Wallach DVD, point out that one type of white blood cells kills cancer cells by injecting oxygen creating hydrogen peroxide into the cells.

If you remember, according to Warburg, it is increased amounts of carcinogens, toxicity and pollution that leads to this breakdown of cellular respiration. Which is exactly what we have been experiencing over the last 50 or 60 years.

Looking at cancer in this light, it makes sense to drastically increase cellular oxygen levels and to detoxify the body so that more cells stay oxygenated. And there is something else to consider.

Acidity and Alkalinity

Cancer thrives in an acidic environment, not an alkaline environment. Cancer cells, by nature of the lactic acid produced by fermentation, are highly acidic. The majority of the foods and drinks we consume are acidic, with colas and other soft drinks being highly acidic. So unless you are eating a special diet, your body is way too acidic. Helping to make it a good environment for cancer.

According to Keiichi Morishita in his book, Hidden Truth of Cancer, if blood starts to become acidic, then the body deposits the excess acidic substances in cells so that the blood will be able to maintain an alkaline condition. This causes those cells to become more acidic, and also causes a decrease in their oxygen levels.

Over time, he theorizes, these cells increase in acidity and some die. These dead cells themselves turn into acids. However, some of these acidified cells may adapt in that environment. In other words, instead of dying - as normal cells do in an acid environment - some cells survive by becoming abnormal cells. These abnormal cells are called malignant cells. Malignant cells do not correspond with brain function nor with our own DNS memory code. Therefore, malignant cells grow indefinitely and without order. This is cancer.

As you can see, what he seems to be describing, though from a different point of view, is the process by which low oxygen levels turns some cells cancerous.

Looking at cancer from the point of view of oxygen levels and acidity, letís see what was it about the oxygen supplement and the algae that seemed to work so effectively against cancer.

Dr. Whittaker points out, quite rightly, that liquid oxygen supplements donít work because they donít get oxygen into the cells. He explains that a delivery mechanism is needed to get the oxygen into the cells. And that getting oxygen into the stomach or even the blood wonít get it into the cells. The body uses hemoglobin to get oxygen into the cells. I agree with him entirely.

The supplement that first opened my eyes to the power of oxygen on cancer was not a liquid oxygen supplement. It contained almost no oxygen. Rather, it interacted with water to split water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. And contained ionic minerals that could take it across cell walls. So that it could get into cells. Where it then could produce oxygen in the cell when it interacted with water molecules and trace minerals. Thereby increasing oxygen levels inside the cells.

And apparently, when taking high doses of this supplement, enough cells became oxygenated so that either the oxygen by itself or the body and the oxygen together are able to deal with the cancer. Simple and straightforward.

The blue green algae worked in a variety of ways. It helped to alkalinize the body which permitted cells to become better oxygenated. It was a very potent detoxifier, which also would help increase cellular oxygenation. Some people say that chlorophyll can help increase oxygenation because it is very similar to hemoglobin, and thus can transport oxygen to the cells. I donít know if this is possible. Chlorophyll certainly is not the same as hemoglobin. So I doubt that it does this, but no one is really sure what goes on in this case. This algae contained very high levels of chlorophyll. It contained the full spectrum of trace minerals. All of which are needed for enzymes to work. And as respiratory enzymes are either dead or not functioning well in cancerous cells, increased levels of trace minerals possibly helped them work better.

Even more interesting is the possibility that this algae may have provided enzymes to replace the respiratory enzymes damaged by low oxygen levels. The enzymes in the algae were very similar to the enzymes in the mitochondria. The mitochondria is the energy production center of our cells, and contains the damaged respiratory enzymes found in cancer. So the enzymes in the algae could possibly have been used by the body to replace or repair those damaged respiratory enzymes.

In addition, the algae contained high quality essential fatty acids. Cell walls cannot exchange oxygen properly when the walls are deficient in essential fatty acids. So if the cell wall is not made with enough essential fatty acids, that oxygen exchange cannot take place. And the cells become poorly oxygenated. (It can also be very valuable to take extra flax seed oil or Marine Lipids (fish oil) for cancer for this reason.)

There was an article in a major Chicago paper a few years back, (canít find the article though Iíve looked through my old files) talking about how researchers, I think it was at the University of Hawaii, found phytonutrients in blue green algae that were able to kill cancer cells in test tubes. So it could be that some of the phytonutrients in this algae were able to destroy cancerous cells.

Because this algae was low temperature freeze-dried processed, it contained active sterols and sterolins. There has been a lot of research over the last decade on how sterols and sterolins boost the immune system. Increasing the number of Natural Killer Cells, T- Cells, even Tumor Necrosis Factor which causes apoptosis or cancer cell death. In one study, Dr. Atif Awad, at the University at Buffalo, New York, found that B-sitosterol appears to play an important role in inhibiting the growth of human prostate cancer cells.

And finally, researchers found that this type of algae increased the migration of Natural Killer Cells into the body. 40% of them migrated within 2 hours. The value of this for cancer fighting is that Natural Killer Cells naturally kill cancer cells. That is one of their jobs. And they have to travel into the body from the blood to do so.

And finally, it may have helped in a way that I hadnít realized until I came across an article which explained that one of the reasons people died of cancer was because of protein starvation. Changes cancer causes in the body make it harder to synthesize and utilize protein. Consequently, a person with cancer literally can waste away and starve to death. The algae may have provided an additional benefit as it was a source of a low molecular weight, high quality protein that was very easy to assimilate and utilize. So it may be that taken in high doses, it provided enough protein to the protein starved body to make a real difference.


One thing that may be obvious from this report, but is so important I want to point it out again, is that for therapeutic endeavors, such as for boosting the immune system and changing oxygen and pH levels in the body, large quantities or high doses seem to work the best.

Cancer is not something to play around with. The more you have to overcome, the more you have to do. The key to getting rid of cancer may be to move your bodyís internal environment towards health and away from an environment conducive to the growth of cancer. It doesnít matter what kind of cancer. This isnít about curing a particular cancer with a particular treatment. Or curing cancer at all. It is about making your body so healthy it no longer gives a home to cancer and can fight it off more effectively.

From what I have heard, it may never be too late to strengthen your body to fight cancer. The more cancer you have, the more nutrients and energy youíll need, to move the body back to a state of health. The greater your action will have to be.
