CANCERKnowing your enemy
We all produce new cells every day, many millions of them each week. All our bones, fluids and tissues are made of cells that are regularly checked and replaced. Some of the replacement cells are defective due to different influences from inside and outside of the body. However, if our immune system works properly, unwanted cells are killed by the defence system before they begin to grow and threaten our health. All living human beings cure themselves of cancer over and over again as their immune system locates and deals with cancerous cells in the body. Our immune system already knows how to cure cancer, and it has done so for decades.
Cancer gets diagnosed in our body when the immune system is not able to do its job properly. It can’t keep up with destroying defective cells anymore. This can be because the immunity is weakened or because the workload is too high, there are too many defective, old, damaged or foreign cells to deal with. Usually cancer is a problem of both, the vitality of the immune system, and of its workload caused by increasing number of unhealthy cells in the body.
If we want to understand how the cells become unhealthy and damaged, we can compare our body to a farming field. Before a farmer plants his seed, he needs to be concerned with the balance of the soil in which he is going to plant. One of the primary things the farmer looks at is the soils pH balance, the mineral balance, hydration level, healthy bacteria levels and other factors that give him an idea of the environment in which that seed is going to grow. If the terrain is unbalanced, that little seed is going to have a much harder time growing into a big strong plant. As it grows, uptake of nutrients from the soil can be diminished leaving the plant with a poor "immune system" and it becomes more susceptible to disease, competing foliage and parasites in the environment.
Our body's cells are similar to that little seed. The soil for our cells is our internal bodily environment. To maintain health and strength, our cells need their own balanced environment. And here also we are concerned with pH balance, mineral balance, hydration levels, good bacteria in the gut and other items of importance. Very simply, when these things are off balance the body is off balance as well and becomes more susceptible to diseases, including cancer.
One of the factors posing a continuous threat to our internal environment are free radicals. Free radicals are unstable toxic compounds, created by oxidation and the loss of an electron during normal activities and processes taking place in our body. Unstable free radicals do everything they can to get another electron and become stable again. The problem is that they want to steal an electron from normal cells in the body. This can cause serious damage to the normal cells. Many diseases, including cancer are linked to free radicals damage.
Despite how dangerous free radicals are, we wouldn’t be able to live without them. Free radicals don’t discriminate, they attack normal cells but they also attack germs. Free radicals can also help in terms of energy production. So, as with almost everything in our body, it is all about achieving the proper balance. We don't want to eliminate free radicals, we just need to keep them in check. The key to this are antioxidants.
All antioxidants have one thing in common, they give up electrons easier than our cells, but they give them up at different levels, i.e. vitamin C is an antioxidant, but when it gives up its electron to protect the cells, it becomes an oxidized vitamin C, also a free radical. Now it wants to steal an electron from the cells so another free radical fighter like pycnogenol comes along and donates its electron to the vitamin C and then it becomes a free radical. The circle continues, vitamin E donates to it and it becomes a free radical, though not as harmful as the original vitamin C, and so forth. This is called the “electron cascade”, which is why we need a broad spectrum of antioxidants in our body. We need all of these antioxidants as vitamins C, E, selenium, pycnogenol, carotenoids. All of them help to protect our body.
In an effort to develop the most potent antioxidant possible, the world-renowned scientific teams looked at all the elements. They realized that the smallest one of all, hydrogen, could provide the most concentrated source of antioxidant power. Each tiny hydrogen atom can carry and give up an extra electron, creating the same power as each of the huge antioxidant molecules. After giving up the electron, it only burns oxygen and forms water, it never becomes a free radical. It is the only antioxidant that will do that and therefore it is the most powerful antioxidant. A study of another team of scientists lead by Ikuroh Ohsawa proved that ‘hydrogen can be used as an effective antioxidant owing to its ability to rapidly diffuse across membranes. It can reach and react with cytotoxic reactive oxygen species and thus protect against oxidative damage.’
Doctor Vincent’s work is also showing the importance of hydrogen. He explored the relationship between the water of the French cities and the number of deaths due to cancer, heart attack and other diseases. In some villages he found people very sickly with no energy and in other villages he found people vibrantly healthy and happy. He measured the waters, did statistical research and found direct correlations between the water and their state of health. He measured not only the pH of water, but also rH, relative hydrogen, H-. This tests the amount of hydrogen in the water. In the scale, which goes from 42 - via 28 - to 0, above 28 is highly oxidized with virtually no electrons available and below 28 there is an abundance of electrons.
The healthiest villages had water with an rH of 22 and the unhealthy ones had an rH way up towards 42. You'd have to drink a million glasses in the higher range to get the same number of electrons as in one glass of rH 22 water.
Fresh organic produce also contains lots of hydrogen. But we have to eat a great deal of it to get sufficient amount of hydrogen. Also, cooking removes most of the negative ions and metal pans and metal cutlery discharge the electrons. This results in insufficiency of electrons in most of us. A machine called the BTA or Biological Terrain Analyser developed by doctor Morrell which tests blood, saliva and urine for hydrogen, H+, H- and minerals found that virtually almost all people are low in hydrogen, H-, especially as they get older.
Let’s say our biological terrain is altered so that the microbes can gain a foothold. The first thing they do is start emitting toxins which causes the body to use up all its electrons hence altering the biological terrain to being less in favour of cells and more in favour of the toxic organisms. According to research of Dr. Vincent, the healthy person has an rH of 21 meaning he or she has plenty of electrons in the body. A person becomes pre-cancerous as the cancer cells in the body start emitting toxins and cause the body to lose its electrons, which are dumped into the urine, hence the blood becomes oxidized. Cancer is changing the biological terrain in its favour by emitting toxins in the body that are causing it to get rid of its electrons so the cancer can survive.
Dr. Morrell in France showed that cancer cells have no hydrogen in them at all. They are the only cells in the body that don’t have it and hydrogen may be the factor that helps to control cellular growth and proliferation. Hence with lots of electrons, it is easier for the body to reverse cancer. Increasing the electrons in the body makes an environment where the attacking organisms can't live, improves the immune system and removes free radicals, poisons and toxins.
