CHRONIC DEHYDRATION Part 11: Setting the Stage for Cancer

Oxygen and water the two prime elements for life.

Oxygen and water the two prime elements for life.

Without oxygen you can survive for only a few minutes.
Without water, survival is limited to a few weeks or even days.
But you can go several months without food.

This makes oxygen and water the two prime elements for life. No one has to tell us to breathe oxygen because the autonomic nervous system makes us do it. But drinking water is a conscious decision we must all make to keep our bodies healthy and cancer-free when we add salt and potassium to prevent dehydration.

Normal body cells function by bringing in nutrients and flushing out toxins, grow old, and then die so young cells can replace them. They have personality, culture, and are members of the team. Cancer cells are dangerous because they have lost their social skills, are primitive, selfish, invasive, have uncontrolled growth and reproduction, disrupt normal body functions, and monopolize the body’s resources.

It has long been established that cancer thrives in a low-oxygen and acidic environment. Dr. Otto Warburg was nominated an unprecedented three times for the Nobel prize for different researches, and won in 1931. In 1924 he concluded that cancer cells grow due to anaerobic (without oxygen) respiration and use sugar fermentation for energy whereas healthy cells thrive in an aerobic (with oxygen) environment using protein for energy.

Dr. Warburg could cause or cure cancer by changing the oxygen-carrying ability of the blood by using acid to force out oxygen, or alkalinity to force in oxygen. Due to fermentation, he reported cancer cells maintain a pH level as low as 6.0 (acidic) due to lactic acid production and elevated CO2.

His proposal to prevent cancer was to keep the speed of the blood so high that it contained sufficient oxygen (enough water = blood volume = speed through the body and oxygen capacity) to keep the hemoglobin (protein + iron) in the blood. This also keeps the vessels dilated so the blood flows freely.

Keith Brewer, PhD, describes cancer tumors as a thin layer of rapidly growing cells surrounding a mass of dead normal cells killed by acid buildup. This acid leaks from the tumor and poisons the cancer patient, resulting in the pain associated with the disease.

Brewer says that an alkaline environment with a pH slightly above 7.4, cancer cells become dormant. At 8.5 these cells will die while healthy ones will live on. The closely related minerals potassium, rubidium, and especially cesium are most efficiently absorbed by cancer cells even down to an acidic pH of 6.5, and raise their alkalinity to kill the disease and neutralize the tumor’s acid toxins.

In tests of 30 humans by Brewer using cesium and rubidium, all their tumors disappeared. Also all pains and effects associated with cancer disappeared within 12-36 hours. H.D. Sartori has used Cesium Chloride to treat 50 cancer patients and had a 50% survival rate.

Dr. Leonard Coldwell also relies on alkalinity for curing cancer. His mother was given six months to live due to Hepatitis C, liver cirrhosis, and liver cancer. Forty-two years later she is still alive due to her son’s cancer protocol. Studies have proven Dr. Coldwell has a 92.3% cancer cure rate of over 35,000 cancer patients. His eleven-point program includes body alkalinity with a pH of 7.36, whole-body detoxification, supplements, eliminating stress, and killing Candida (yeast) overgrowth. The National Institute of Health reports that among leukemia patients, a significant number of deaths are due to Candida infection that plays havoc with the immune system.

There exist pockets of humanity across the globe who have low incidences of cancer. Such a group is the Hopi Indians of Arizona who have 1 cancer case in 1,000 as compared to 1 in 4 for the USA as a whole. Hopi food is very high in potassium and exceptionally high in rubidium. Since the soil is volcanic, it must also be very rich in cesium.

Cancer is virtually unknown among the Hunza of Northern Pakistan. They drink at least 4 liters of mineral spring water which is very rich in cesium, rubidium and potassium. The Indians of Central America, Peru, and Ecuador enjoy low incidence of cancer also. Area soil is volcanic so their fruit is very high in rubidium and cesium. Cases have been reliably reported that people with advanced inoperable cancer who have lived with these Indians have had their tumors disappear within a few months.

Rather than having to endure any cancer treatment, the better plan is not to let the body cells become anaerobic and acidic to begin with. Dr. Feredoon Batmanghelidj provides answers to the question of how the body (environment ) becomes this way for cancer growth in the first place. This medical doctor blames chronic dehydration for the anaerobic and acidic condition of the body.

He saysthere are four events leading to the environment cancer needs to develop and thrive. Event # 1 is when chronic dehydration means there is not enough water, thereby causing a failure to rid the body of toxins created by its own survival processes and brought in from the outside world. Toxins are normally washed away by water; insufficient water means these toxins buildup in the body. and describe cancer as damage to the genetic material(DNA). Dr. Batmanghelidj lists Event #2 as damage to the cells’ DNA repair system which is initiated by the toxin buildup, and is exacerbated by a state of acidity caused by a lack of water and salt. This acid eats at the cells’ delicate structure causing DNA damage so reproduction is not normal.

Amino acids are used as antioxidants against the effects of this acidity and are necessary for DNA quality control and repair, especially the amino acids tryptophan, tyrosine, and lysine.

Event #3 involves the destruction of cell receptors which receive messages from the body regarding how to grow, reproduce, and then die. Without water as its prime source of energy, the dehydrated body looks for another source of energy in its own protein. Cell receptors are protein so they are sacrificed for the greater good. Without message reception, the cells are on their own to become autonomous and lose all conception of their proper space and boundaries. Therefore cells grow into large and irregular masses called benign tumors. If even more energy protein is required by the body, more cell receptors are cannibalized and all communication with the area is lost. These isolated cells regress to their earlier, primitive form without sophistication and an integrated position in the cell community. They are now obedient to their selfish genetic drive to survive and reproduce their mutated selves at any cost.

Dr Batmanghelidj’s Cause #4 is when excess histamine is released because it is the body’s water manager during dehydration. But histamine also sends the immune system into over-drive. So histamine has to cause an immune system shutdown because there is no need for it: the problem is water shortage, not foreign invasion. To shutdown the immune system, histamine sets off a chain reaction: more vasopressin sparks more production of cortisone which in turn causes extra production of Interleukin 1 (ILK-1). The chain reaction continues as ILK-1 inhibits the immune system and depresses ILK-2 which would stimulate the immune system. Then histamine also shuts down bone marrow production of white cells needed to destroy abnormal cells. This immune system suppression means there is nothing to halt the cancer progression. These abnormal cells are free to travel to other body localities and new cancer colonies can develop elsewhere.

Dr. Batmanghelidj believes unintended chronic dehydration is the root cause of all disease, including cancer. He says water is a prime source of energy for the body. He describes salt as a strong natural antihistamine that is vital for the generation of hydro-electrical energy in all body cells, is vital for the kidneys to clear excess acidity and toxins and pass them out through urine, is necessary for intercellular communication, and is a potent anti-stress element. In short, he maintains that water and salt to re-establish a hydrated state reverses the acidic and anaerobic environment, plus reverses Causes #1, #2, #3, and #4.

Lorraine Day, M.D. was considered one of mainstream medicine’s most highly qualified physicians–qualified enough to mold the minds of emerging doctors when she taught thousands of them at the top three medical schools in America.Yet when she was diagnosed with a fast growing breast cancer in 1992.

She “refused chemotherapy, radiation, and mutilating surgery because, as a medical doctor with years of experience, I saw thousands of cancer patients die, not from their cancer, but from the painful, maiming, destructive treatments we doctors give them!” Because of Dr. Batmanghelidj’s research with water, eight months after adding it to her newly adopted healthy diet, she was pronounced cancer-free and has been for the past 17 years.

With an infected cut on your hand, altering the environment to kill the bacteria can be done by soaking it in warm salt water a few times. It could be preventing and killing cancer cells is as easy as making its environment (your body) inhospitable for cancer by providing the re-hydration components of water plus minerals including the electrolytes salt and potassium which help distribute oxygen and create an alkaline pH.
