According to the AmericanInstitute for Cancer Research, 7.6 million deaths per year worldwide were caused by cancer.  The cost of “treating” (killing and mutilating) cancer patients in the United States alone is over 100 billion dollars a year.

Causes of Cancer:

Many factors have been associated with cancer.  Tobacco, alcohol, pollution, an unhealthy work environment, food additives, pesticides, drugs, emotional stress and dietary habits have been cited as the most common factors causing cancer.

 Dietary Factors:

According to Doll and Peto, the estimated percentage of cancer deaths caused by tobacco was 30%, while that by diet was 35%!  Excess dietary fat has been identified as an important contributing factor to colon, liver, gallbladder, breast and endometrial cancers.  Ingestion of saccharin and sodium nitrite (food preservatives) have also been associated with cancer.  Birth control pills have been reported to contribute to cancers in  the female reproductive system.

In more than three decades of practice, I have found that the same dietarity habit which causes the overgrowth of yeasts and parasites also causes cancer!  For example, I have noticed that a high incidence of stomach and esophageal cancers among Asian populations is associated with a high intake of fermented, yeast-loaded pickles.

Dr. Otto Warburg, a Nobel Prize winner in Science in 1931, demonstrates that a cancer cell has the metabolism of a plant cell.  He describes the process as “fermentation.”  A plant cell thrives on carbon dioxide and gives off oxygen as its waste product.  This is opposite to the function of  “normal cells.”

Dr. Gaston Naessens, a renowned Canadian biologist in his research for a cancer solution, developed an advanced microscope capable of magnifying 30,000 times (standard microscopes are capable of magnifying 1,800 times).  This enabled him to carefully observe an important phenomenon called polymorphism (the ability to change form).  This is also known as the process of fermentation.

When the fermentation process takes place, a cell reverts itself to a more primitive state.  This results in more rapid growth and chaos.  Moreover, this fermentation process changes the biochemical codes or sensors of the cell.

The weakened immune system cannot identify the invader and start the normal battle to get rid of this invader.  In fact, a weakened immunity may even adopt the identity of the foe (a fermented cancer cell) and attack a normal cell.  Some health practitioners call this autoimmune disease.

Psychological Factors:

Many researchers assert that we all have cancer genes (oncogenes) in our body.  The reason why some get cancer but others don’t, is due to the way we handle stressors in our life.  After dealing with numerous cancer clients, I have found that there is symbolic meaning in each type of cancer.  For example, women who have breast cancer are usually givers or care-takers.  They had been busy giving love and care to others but had not received the nurturing they needed.  In some cases, they craved love and nurturing but did not get it because their husbands had extramarital affairs.  Another example is that when a woman has uterine cancer, usually she has unfinished issues regarding sexuality such as sexual molestation or rape.  A person who has throat or thyroid cancer usually has unexpressed rage.

In the next article, I will discuss natural remedies for cancer.  Stay tuned!

According to the western medical establishment, the cause of cancer is unknown. Some researchers assert that we all have cancer genes (oncogenes) in our body.  The reason why some people get cancer but others don’t is due to the way we handle stressors in our life. 

 

After dealing with numerous cancer clients in the past three decades, I have found that there is symbolic meaning in each type of cancer.  For example, women who have breast cancer are usually givers or care-takers.  Breasts symbolize love and nurturing.  They had been busy giving love and care to others but had not received the nurturing they themselves needed.  In some cases, they craved love and nurturing but did not get it because their husbands had extramarital affairs. 

 

Another example is that when a woman has uterine cancer, usually she has unfinished issues regarding sexuality such as sexual molestation or rape.  A person who has throat or thyroid cancer usually has unexpressed rage. 

 

As I indicated in previous articles, poor dietary habits such as the Standard American Diet (SAD) that is loaded with sugar, dairy, wheat, yeasts, caffeine, alcohol, and chemicals create an incubator for cancer cells to ferment.   Psychological stress, either chronic or acute, weakens the immunity, and facilitates this fermentation process. Therefore, the best way to treat or prevent cancer is to deal with the body and mind simultaneously. 

 

Cancer is a life-threatening illness and an extremely traumatic experience.  You can allow the illness to consume you or you can take the bull by the horns and fight back!  Many people are able to exercise their informed freedom of choice and are able to create a “permanent remission.” If you refuse to see cancer as a permanent sentence, but instead see it as a new beginning, chances are you can win the battle and claim victory.

 

Dr. Bernie Siegel, in his book, Peace, Love & Healing (1989), advocates “self-induced healing.” He believes that feelings are natural chemicals that can heal or kill.  As a medical doctor, he chooses to help his cancer patients use these natural chemicals to cure and heal themselves.  “Anything that offers hope has the potential to heal, including thoughts, suggestions, symbols and placebos.” As a result of this firm belief, he has helped countless cancer patients create miracle cures!

 

The late Norman Cousins, in his book, Anatomy of an Illness (1985), suggested that if you have a highly developed purpose, a strong will to live and a creative way of living, you will have a potent healing force!  By exercising this healing force, together with laughter, courage and tenacity, he successfully fought against a crippling disease and increased his longevity.

 

In my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, I offer a few tools for you to effectively manage stress.  They include: meditation, affirmation, prayers, releasing negative emotions, and writing letters in a proper format to finish “unfinished business”.  Both hard-copy and e-books are available.  Please visit: www.drjsbest.com.

Potassium iodine (KI) is good to prevent thyroid cancer only if there is radioactive iodine in the radiation.  Also, radioactive iodine loses its radiation power after a few days.   So, KI is only needed within the first few days of exposure to radiation.  Stocking up on a bottle or two can be more than enough to fight against this type of radiation damage.  A bottle is good for a 30-day supply, and the shelf life is from five to seven years.

Because of the frenzy of stocking up on KI, some retailers take advantage of the situation by increasing their prices from less than $ 50 a bottle to $ 500 or even $1,500 a bottle.  Is it necessary to pay for KI at such a high price?  I don’t believe so, and the following is the reason why (be aware that KI is only good to prevent thyroid cancer right after the exposure to radiation, but not other types of cancer such as leukemia).

Can you get iodine from a natural source?  Of course you can!  Sea vegetables like kelp provide an abundance of iodine.  One table spoon of kelp provides approximately 12 mg of iodine, while daily recommended dosage is only 150 mcg (1 mg = 1,000 mcg).  Therefore, it would make more sense to stock up on dry sea vegetables like kelp.  If you eat sea vegetables regularly, then you have no need to stock KI.

What is Acute Radiation Syndrome (ARS)?

ARS occurs when individuals are exposed to a large amount of radiation in a very short period of time.  According to earthquake experts, 6 G (gray is a measurement of radiation exposure) is a lethal dosage.  Individuals exposed to more than 6 Gy of radiation will die within days or weeks.  Why is radiation so lethal? Radiation burns and kills.  It destroys DNA in white blood cells, and thus destroys the immune system. 

Symptoms of ARS:

Within two to three days of radiation exposure, if a cluster symptoms of nausea, vomiting, fever, diarrhea, skin burns, confusion, etc. occur, that’s an indication of ARS. 

Treatment for ARS:

According to the Mayo clinic, treatment for ARS is geared towards symptom relief.  If there is radioactive iodine in the radiation, the patient is also given Iodine potassium (KI) to prevent thyroid cancer.  However, KI will not prevent other types of cancer such as leukemia.

Should we be worried about ARS?

Unless you are exposed to a large dosage of radiation within a short period of time, you will not suffer from Acute Radiation Syndrome.  The fallout of the radiation diffuses the radiation power after “travelling” a distance.  Some people in the U. S. are very concerned about the impact of the nuclear power plant damage after the earthquake and tsunami in Fukushima, Japan.  However, what we really should be concerned about is chronic radiation sickness.

In future posts, I will elaborate on the symptoms of chronic radiation sickness and the role of yeast-free living in the prevention and treatment of this serious public health issue.
