Cancer --- A New Paradigm by Mauris Emeka June 2010

“Your food shall be your remedies, and your remedies shall be your food.” --Hippocrates

There are frequent attempts to show that significant progress is being made in the battle against cancer. But regardless of how the numbers are presented, the bottom line is that cancer (in all of its forms) is fast overtaking heart related diseases as the leading cause of death in America. One hundred years ago one out of 33 people were diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Today one person out of three will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, and that ratio continues to grow. Cancer is affecting more and more people and at ever younger ages. The malignant tumor mass that’s commonly referred to as cancer is in reality a symptom (or indication) of cancer. Cancer itself is the malfunctioning process that causes tumor symptoms to appear. The malignant tumor symptom is NOT “the cancer”. Smoke that comes from a fire is not “the fire”; it is an indication of a fire. Simply removing the tumor through surgery, chemotherapy or radiation does not rid the body of cancer process any more than eliminating smoke puts out a fire. With cancer, it is not enough to merely manage its symptoms. It’s time for a fundamental change in how we think about this disease. A paradigm shift is in order.

Consider the following as a starting point: I. Change the environment in our body to make it a lot less acidic and more alkaline. Cancer thrives in an acid environment; and on the other hand our body functions best when our blood and most of our internal organs are slightly alkaline. Remember to drink enough water during the day, and drink water that is slightly alkaline as opposed to slightly acidic. II. Eat less cooked foods and a lot more live plant-based foods, especially a variety of deeply colored fruits and vegetables. In addition to excellent nutrition they are high in fiber, rich in enzymes that facilitate digestion, and they insure a healthy acid/alkaline pH balance. Give less preference animal products. III. Make an effort to greatly strengthen the immune system, because it is our primary defense against cancer. IV. Remember to consume some foods each day that reduce inflammation, because inflammation adversely affects the immune system as well as the acid/alkaline balance in the body. Turmeric spice, aloe vera gel fresh from the aloe leaf, and fermented soy -- these are excellent anti-inflammatory foods. V. Do things that cause more oxygen to be introduced into your body at the cellular level, because cancer cannot thrive where there is an abundance of oxygen. (Dr. Otto Warburg, a German scientist, won the Nobel prize in 1931 for discovering that cancer cells are anaerobic, meaning that they generate energy without the need for oxygen). On the other hand, healthy cells thrive on oxygen, and deep breathing is one way to bring in more oxygen into the body. Also, eat raw green vegetables, and drink fresh squeezed juice from deep green leafy vegetables (like collards, kale, and Swiss chard greens). These greens are rich in chlorophyll, and chlorophyll enhances oxygen circulation. VI. Cleanse your body. Make a serious effort to detoxify, because it greatly enhances your body’s ability to heal itself. Coffee enemas and ESSIAC tea are especially helpful if one is already challenged with cancer. VII. Take steps to reduce stress. Meditation, prayer, and moderate exercise -- all are very helpful. In essence, eat primitive – that is, eat a high percentage of raw foods and whole foods. An important side benefit is that it insures better bowel regularity (stimulating 3 to 4 movements daily). Otherwise, bowel sluggishness contributes to increased acidic body chemistry. In closing, it's time we stop thinking of cancer as some sort of localized disease, like a skinned knee, and thinking that if we simply discover and treat the tumor symptom early enough then the problem is solved. Merely managing the symptoms of this dreaded illness is not the answer. Let us foster an environment in our body that does not allow the underlying process of cancer to thrive. We are dealing here with a chronic metabolic disease that cries out for a holistic response that includes fundamental changes in our diet and lifestyle. The bottom line: each of us must commit to taking greater personal responsibility for our health and wellness. ______________________________
