We can cure cancer by blocking glycolysis with oxygen. This forces mitochondria to become active again and use the Krebs Cycle for energy so that the cells can stop being cancerous and regain apoptosis. The chemical dichloroacetic acid (DCA), which increases the chemical reactions of the Krebs cycle in mitochondria, has been shown to kill cancer cells in laboratory tests and in animals. I never put DCA in the Natural Allopathic protocol because some very severe adverse effects such as encephalopathies, liver problems and severe peripheral neuropathies can occur.
Essentially the Krebs cycle (also known as the citric acid cycle) involves a series of enzymatic reactions that transform proteins (in the form of their constituent amino acids), fats (as their constituent fatty acids) and carbohydrates (as glucose) into intermediate substances. These intermediates are then passed into the electron transport chain where they undergo a further series of reactions – receiving and donating electrons down the chain – to produce energy, in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), CO2 and water. The presence of sufficient oxygen within the cells is essential to the success of this entire procedure, as the term oxidation itself indicates. If insufficient oxygen is delivered to the cells, this entire enterprise will be compromised.
Research published in June 2013 by researchers from the University of South Florida and Boston College using mice models reported that a “Ketogenic Diet alone significantly decreased blood glucose, slowed tumor progression and increased mean survival time by 56.7% in mice with systemic metastatic cancer. While Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy alone did not influence cancer progression, combining the Ketogenic Diet with Hyperbaric Oxygen elicited a significant decrease in blood glucose, tumor growth rate and a 77% increase in mean survival times compared to the controls.
The Gerson Therapy treats the causes of cancer, degenerative diseases, toxicity and nutritional deficiency by flooding the body with nutrients from about 15-20 pounds of organically grown fruits and vegetables daily. Most is used to make fresh raw juice, up to one glass every hour, up to 13 times per day mostly from raw carrot, apple and green-leaf juices. Raw and cooked solid foods are generously consumed. Oxygenation is usually more than doubled.
The German cancer researcher Dr. Paul Gerhard Seeger demonstrated in 1938 that in most cases cancer starts in the cytoplasm, the jelly-like outer part of the cell, and especially in the energy-producing mitochondria. Here food fragments are normally oxidized in a series of enzymatic steps called the ‘respiratory chain.’Seeger showed that in cancer cells this respiratory chain was more or less blocked, especially at the site of the important enzyme cytochrome oxidase. Without it the cell can produce energy only anaerobically like a fungal cell. This is very inefficient and the resulting overproduction of lactic acid makes the cell and the whole body overly acidic.
Seeger and others found that cancer cells utilize only between 5 and 50% of the oxygen of normal cells. The virulence of cancer cells is directly proportional to their loss of oxygen utilization, and with this to the degree of blockage of the respiratory chain. In 1957 Seeger successfully transformed normal cells into cancer cells within a few days by introducing chemicals that blocked the respiratory chain.
Seeger’s most important discovery was the certainty that that certain nutrients, mainly from the vegetable kingdom, could restore cellular respiration in low-virulence cancer cells and, with this, transform them back into normal cells.
Seeger’s finding that cancer originates in the cytoplasm and not in the nucleus was confirmed by other researchers. Between 1975 and 1977 they repeated an experiment 93 times in which they replaced the nucleus of a fertilized mouse egg with the nucleus of a cancer cell. In each case the egg developed into a healthy, cancer-free mouse and even the offspring remained cancer-free. Similar results were achieved with frog eggs.
Mitochondria are continually confronted with factors that can jeopardize how well they function. These factors include: hypoxic (low oxygen conditions), chronic stress and deep emotional shock, chronic sleep disturbances, hyperglycemia, pharmaceutical drugs and antibiotics, organic pollutants like pesticides, fungicides, heavy metals like mercury and other environmental toxins. These factors all cause mitochondrial dysfunction. Mercury is a mitochondrial poison. Data suggest that moderate levels of mercury administered over an 8 week period can affect adversely the integrity of mitochondrial membranes.
If too many mitochondria fail, there is nothing that can be
done to prevent death. Any successful treatment can
only prevent too many mitochondria from failing.
Dr. Majid Ali says, “Injured mitochondria mutate at much higher rates. Damaged mitochondria are exhausted mitochondria. Exhausted mitochondria cannot produce sufficient ATP molecules. An insufficient supply of ATP molecules means insufficient energy. Insufficient molecular energy means clinical chronic fatigue.”
