(based on the work of Otto Warburg, Nobel Prize winner)
The ultimate human sickness, cancer, has countless secondary causes. Almost anything can cause cancer. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. The prime cause of a healthy cell becoming cancerous is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen for the fermentation of sugar.
All normal body cells meet their energy needs by respiration of oxygen. Oxygen, the donor of energy in all plants and animals, is dethroned in the cancerous cell and replaced by the energy yielding reaction of the lowest living forms, the fungal fermentation of sugar. Therefore cancer can be seen as a kind of fungus or mould that breeds inside the human body under favourable conditions.
From a nutritional standpoint, cancerous cells thrive on acidifying foods (foods which are deficient in alkaline minerals such as magnesium, iron, sodium, potassium, etc.) Mineral deficient foods create an acidic inner environment which literally encourages illness to occur. This is because the more acidic the blood pH is, the less oxygen it is able to carry around the body. The more alkaline the blood pH is, the more oxygen it can carry. Therefore, heavy, cooked foods, (especially fried food), animal protein, all processed food and most significantly, sugar are the worst culprits for creating an acidic inner environment. Why? Because cancer is opposite to life, and the human body thrives on oxygen. Cancerous cells thrive in an oxygen deficient (acidic) environment, and all the above foods actually deprive the body of oxygen, while SUGAR ACTIVELY STEALS OXYGEN FOR ITS OWN METABOLIZATION.
Cancerous cells are constantly on the verge of starvation and thus constantly asking the body to feed them, so if their nutritional food supply is stopped the cancerous cells begin to receed. When we give more attention to feeding the healthy cells of our body with alkaline, mineral-rich, oxygen-rich, vibrant and vital nutrition, we strengthen them and simultaneously lessen any power that the denatured cancer cells may have obtained.
All fresh raw vegetables, watery fruits, sprouts and greens, especially fresh wheatgrass juice and Spirulina, have an abundance of oxygen and alkaline minerals contained within. When we eat or drink the juice of these foods, our blood supply of oxygen increases, as does the blood's capacity to carry more oxygen.
The use of wheatgrass juice is central to the rejuvenation process and the reversal of disease. The juice of wheatgrass is a perfectly complete food in itself, with just one ounce of juice being the nutritional equivalent of 22 ounces of green, chlorophyll-rich vegetables. Chlorophyll is the "blood" of the plant. It is the protein in plant life that gives it its distinctive green color, and when compared to a molecule of hemoglobin, the oxygen carrier in human blood, chlorophyll is almost identical. One of chlorophyll's most important functions is to oxygenate the blood stream.
The issue of oxygen deprivation is more than just nutritional though, because our food compulsions are not the only way which we deny our body the oxygen on which it depends. Our compulsion to engage in non-creative thought processes literally starves our body of attention and oxygen, by creating an irregular and shallow breathing pattern which barely sustains the levels which a healthy body depends upon. The way we respond to the emotional movement created by thought within our stomach (the seat of emotion) again either allows or inhibits the flow of oxygen to the cells of our body.
The holding-in of emotions such as sadness and anger establishes contraction deep in the tissues of the body, and thus inhibits the flow of blood and oxygen to whichever part is contracted in tension. Conversely, when emotion is expressed, the body's powerful life-force is allowed to flow unrestricted and the build-up of internal pressure is either relieved, or prevented. Wherever there is ease in the body, the blood flows freely, delivering oxygen more readily.
Therefore it is the human desire to not fully feel and the habitual repression of mental and emotional activity which conditions the human mind and body into patterns of tension and, thus, oxygen deprivation. Coupled with the oxygen-depriving foods that we unconsciously reach for in emotional times to avoid feeling (i.e. chocolate, cakes, ice-cream, bread, cheese, alcohol) the perfect breeding ground for cancerous cells is created.
Whatever is responsible for encouraging cancerous growth also has the power to end it. Once a person becomes more aware of the part they are playing in creating such an inner environment, the power begins to shift back into their hands.
One thing is for certain: Because cancer itself is ultimately the physical manifestation of a deep inner conflict between the desire to fully feel and the desire to avoid fully feeling, it cannot be 'fought' or 'beaten' or 'battled' against. Healing is actually a passive process which best occurs when there is deep mental, physical and emotional rest. The deeper we rest, the faster we heal.
Therefore we must ask ourselves: Do we want to remain in conflict, or begin healing ?
