Tumor Cells Improvise– If We Let Them. However, some brilliant doctors found ways to “not let them” several decades ago and basically we must make sure cells receive sufficient oxygen supply and we keep our body chemistry slightly alkaline. Here I’m sharing some excerpted information from my book, Slam the Door on Cancer and Lock It Out of Your Life. We have control over our body acidity/alkalinity through lifestyle. We have control over assuring our body cells receive the oxygen supply they require again through lifestyle. I realize this post is a bit technical. It is so important, I implore you to read through it more than once if necessary.
In a Nobel Speech, Dr. Otto Warburg said, “. . .The prime cause of cancer is the replacement of respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by fermentation of sugar.”
Dr. Warburg said he found fermentation (burning glucose without oxygen) in every cancer cell he examined. The fermentation Warburg references, however, is within a cascade of events that actually begins with either or both a physical and emotional “insult” sending the body into a persistent inflammatory mode eventually interrupting normal life processes – first at the cellular level and then at the whole body level. Part of this “mode” is acidic body chemistry. We won’t delve into the cascade of events that includes blocked oxidation here, but you can find it expanded in Appendix Five of my book, Slam the Door on Cancer and Lock It Out of Your Life.
Dr. Johanna Budwig explained Warburg’s point further saying: “Otto Warburg, in thorough work, determined that all tissue in the living organism, wherever a tumor can be formed, is characterized by the fact that it can no longer absorb oxygen.”
Here, we need to consider the direct link between cell membrane integrity and the blockage of oxygen that forces the fermentation. Why be concerned with cell membrane health? Oxygen must enter the cell through our cell membranes, period. When body cells are struggling against sustained inflammation from reaction to damaging lifestyle, chronic “insult”, or other trauma, the oxygen delivery to these cells is interrupted forcing them into abnormal “survival mode” which includes anaerobic fermentation rather than normal “respiration”. Cells improvise to stay alive but fermentation cannot support normal healthy life functions indefinitely.
There are “pump mechanisms”in cell membranes that require oxygen to generate electrical energy for the cell and for the body. Realizing that getting oxygen to cells was critical to avoid tumor-enhancing fermentation, Dr.Warburg searched for high-energy fatty acids that are essential for cellular energy generation. He tried some saturated fats that didn’t work (we now know) because of the electron type and arrangement within the fat molecules. [Note: You can search Youtube videos for “sodium-potassium pump” and see demonstrations of these energy generating pump mechanisms simulated. ]
As quantum physics arose, scientists realized that photon rich unsaturated fatty acids provide the energy for transporting oxygen in and out of cells. Unsaturated fats let their electrons easily jump back and forth between molecules thereby generating energy not unlike the way a solar panel works to generate energy. All life processes ultimately depend on sunlight because sunlight transforms into electrons, photons, and particles called “pi-electrons”. Solar particles (photons) come to us in plant-based food through the process of photosynthesis (a chemical process using chlorophyll and sunlight). Photons are to light what electrons are to matter and Einstein showed that photons can be energy waves and particles at the same time. I point this fact out to help us realize the necessity of a plant based diet. We need the photons and electrons from eating plants. And, if we eat animals, we benefit from eating only those animals that have been fed properly grown plants (grasses) rather than “engineered feeds”.
Dr. Johanna Budwig followed Warburg’s work concluding: “The electrons in our food serve as
the resonance system for the sun’s energy. The electrons in our food are truly the element of life.” Budwig realized cell membranes were basically “tarred over” by lifeless dietary saturated fats and especially by hydrogenated margarines and nut butters. Impaired cell membranes exacerbate “blocked oxygen” and other issues. Also, cell membranes are largely made of certain fats and we must have these in our diets to keep life pumping properly at the cellular level (where cancer is an opportunist when we deprive our cells of photon rich foods). Persistent tiredness and fatigue are “red flags” for the presence of tumor formation in our bodies.
“Energy generation” depends on electrons absorbing photons through the process of vibration (resonance), which is the basic energy of everything.
When electrons absorb photons they increase their energy levels. Electrons can also give off photons, which involves a great deal of energy and is part of every change of substance in the universe. Dr. Warburg looked for an edible source of this dynamic exchange and didn’t find it as we noted earlier. Later, Dr. Budwig found that “essential fatty acids” or EFA’s possess the particular electron arrangement and type of chemical bonds to transfer tremendous amounts of energy. [See earlier posts on “The Budwig Protocol” on this blog.]
We now know that the electron configuration found in flax seed (oil), walnuts, carotene, and other plant substances provide the energy for oxidation to overcome the anaerobic fermentation in cancerous cells. Wild coldwater fish that ingest plankton also provide EFA’s. Now, we have a deeper realization of the critical importance of “blocked oxygenation” in the cascade of events resulting in the “disease state” that a sustained inflammatory response initiates. Pain is also a result of blocked oxidation.
These highly unsaturated fats Dr. Budwig used are called “essential fatty acids” because they can ONLY come from God manufactured food and NOT from humanly processed food. I hope you are starting to realize we are designed to eat fresh raw vegetables in which photosynthesis has occurred as a way of “eating sunshine”. [Note: The term fatty acids does not mean these foods push cellular acidity. Quite the opposite,]
We have photons in every healthy body cell . . . We have light in us. After all, Jesus called us “the light of the world.” (Matthew 5:14) “According to the computable findings of modern physicists, the quantum biologists, there is no entity in nature, in life, which has a higher concentration of solar electrons than man. It then follows that man has a true rapport with sunlight. Physicists today are recognizing more and more that “Let there be light!” at the outset of Creation is becoming physically ever clearer to our minds, as the TRUTH.” [Quoted from Dr. Budwig]
