Introduction to pH Therapy as a Cure for Disease
The pH therapies can be used along with a cancer diet that advocates for low or no animal proteins since animal proteins substantially increase the acidity of the body (always take a vitamin B12 supplement if you are not eating animal proteins). All of the cancer diets require strict avoidance of all refined sugars which also increase the acidity of the body. (NOTE: Following a cancer diet is good for people who suffer from any chronic disease.) By following a cancer diet such as the Binzel Diet or the China Study Diet, patients can increase their pH (to become more alkaline) and stabilize their pH to make their bodies uninhabitable by cancer cells. Understanding pH therapies in general can help you make sense of how and why a number of the natural cancer cures work. Even Biomagnetism and other vibrational therapies make use of pH changes to cure cancer and other diseases; pH, after all, plays a role in the electricity of the body’s cells and tissues and their general health and well-being.
The pH (power of Hydrogen) scale is used to measure the alkalinity and acidity of a water-based solution. Solutions that don’t contain water can’t be measured on the pH scale. You can’t, for example, measure the pH of vegetable oil because vegetable oil doesn’t contain water. The human body, of course, is made up of 70% water and all of the chemical reactions in the body take place in water. The liquid part of blood, the plasma, is made up of 92% water. The brain and heart are made up of about 73% water. So pH levels are extremely relevant to human health. The pH of water determines how many nutrients can be dissolved in the water and it also determines the degree to which heavy metals are soluble. Heavy metals, for example, tend to be more toxic in a lower pH (acidic) environment because they’re more soluble.
The normal pH of a cell is 7.4 (which is slightly alkaline). The normal pH of blood is between 7.35 and 7.45 (also slightly alkaline). The only cells that have an acidic pH between 6.5 and 5.5 are cancer cells and pathogens (infectious organisms). Only cancer cells have this acidic pH because the acidity of their internal environment melts the DNA in the nucleus of the cell, which is the cell’s control center; the DNA tells the cell when to stop reproducing and when to die. When a cell loses its control center, it reproduction continues unabated, which leads to the development of a tumor and an acidic pH.
The acidic pH of cancer cells was discovered in the 1920’s by Otto Heinrich Warburg, a German physiologist and medical doctor. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology for discovering the nature and mode of respiration in the cancer cell. What he discovered was that cancer cells ferment glucose as a form of energy metabolism, which causes them to develop an acidic pH. Healthy cells, in contrast, do not ferment glucose. The acidity of cancer cells and their fermentation-based metabolism makes them vulnerable to an alkaline pH. This vulnerability of cancer cells to an alkaline pH has been targeted by several different treatment approaches that have been developed by various scientists over the years.
Some cancer cells rely exclusively on glucose fermentation in order to produce energy while others breathe a little bit of oxygen like normal, healthy cells. But in all cases, the fermentation process leads to the degradation of DNA in the nucleus of cancer cells. Bombarding cancer cells with an alkaline environment makes it impossible for the cell to continue to ferment glucose. Often, higher alkalinity in the body also relieves the pain associated with cancer.
pH Cancer Therapies
NOTE: Only one pH therapy should be used at one time. Combining pH therapies can, in some cases, cancel out the effects of both, or worse, cause alkalosis or acidosis.
There are a number of pH therapies that can be used to cure cancer. One of the most powerful is the Bob Wright Protocol, which bases its methods around killing the cancer-causing microorganism that has been identified by many cancer researchers throughout history including Drs. Livingston-Wheeler, Rife, Goiz, and Naessens. According to the Bob Wright theory, pH therapies stop cancer growth and cause sick cancer cells to revert back into healthy normal cells by either 1) killing the cancer-causing microorganism or 2) causing the cancer-causing microorganism to revert back into a healthy cell.
The China Study, the largest nutritional study ever undertaken, was able to demonstrate that by not eating animal products, cancer patients could literally “switch off” their cancer. The scientists working on the China Study were baffled by the results. Eating a diet of less than 5% animals products made cancer “stop” and regress. The scientists weren’t able to determine why this was the case, but research done by other researchers and Somatidian Theory can explain the phenomena. By not eating animal products or refined sugars, patients’ bodies become more alkaline which causes the cancer-causing microorganism to revert back to a healthy type of cell.
The cancer-causing microorganism (the somatid) reliably comes out of dormancy every 6 months. In healthy patients, this isn’t a problem. The somatid cycles through several shapes that stimulate the immune system to increase the patient’s immunity before going back to a dormant state. But patients who are not following an alkaline diet at this time may see their cancer return. This is one of the reasons why Dr. Binzel and other cancer treatment experts believed that cancer patients needed to stick to a cancer diet for life . Dr. Binzel believed that cancer could be managed but that cancer patients always needed to be vigilant about following a healthy diet.
High pH and Low pH Therapy
How is it possible that both high pH therapy and low pH therapy could work on the same disease? The answer is simple: cancer cells thrive at a pH somewhere between 6.5 and 5.5. If you’re trying to cure an infection, the same principle applies: if the pathogens thrives at a certain pH and you make your pH lower or higher than the pH the pathogen prefers, the pathogen becomes fragile. Changing the pH of a cancer cell can render it fragile and susceptible to things like high temperature (which is used in Low pH Therapy), or it can kill the cancer cell by depriving it of an acidic environment in which to thrive (as in High pH Therapy). By changing the pH of the environment surrounding the cancer cell, the pH of the cancer cell itself is altered. And by changing the pH of the cancer cell, you can disrupt its delicate internal balance. The same thing applies to pathogenic microorganisms that cause infections like influenza or colds. If you change your pH to a level that’s still healthy for you as a human, but that makes your body chemistry inhospitable to the pathogen, the pathogen will die.
Both of the high and low pH treatments need supervision by someone who’s knowledgeable in working with them. That’s because if you’re working to alter your body’s pH (in order to alter the cancer cell’s pH), you need to be mindful of possible pitfalls and have someone who knows how to take care of you to provide guidance. Indeed, Low pH Therapy involves not just an alteration in the body’s pH levels, but also the careful application of high levels of heat using high-frequency electrical currents to kill the cancer cells. For this, you need the help of a knowledgeable healer or doctor who works with this type of treatment on a regular basis.
One of the important things that pH therapies have demonstrated is that cancer cells don’t breathe like healthy cells do. Instead of using oxygen to breathe and make energy like healthy cells, cancer cells ferment sugar (in the form of glucose). Indeed, cancer cells love sugar. (or rather, for those who ascribe to the Somatidian Theory of cancer—the microorganisms infecting the cell loves sugar). Their favorite type of sugar is refined sugar, but any type of sugar can be used to feed cancer cells. Actually, cancer cells don’t just love sugar, they absolutely require it in order to survive.
A scientist and Nobel laureate, named Otto Warburg first demonstrated that cancer cells don’t breathe oxygen, but instead ferment glucose. This discovery was important for a number of reasons. For one thing, it helped to explain why cancer cells can move or “metastasize” to other parts of the body easily. Cancer cells don’t need a constant supply of oxygen so they don’t have to remain stationary. The cancer cell’s ability to ferment glucose is a poor use of materials in comparison with healthy cells. For each unit of glucose it consumes, the cancer cell can only produce 1/18th of the energy packets that a healthy cell can produce by transporting oxygen into the cell. But while cancer can’t ferment as many energy packets from one unit of glucose as a healthy cell, it can produce energy packets much faster. In other words, the cancer cell eats a lot of sugar and produces all kinds of energy really fast so that it can build more and more and more cells quickly (thus, the growth of a tumor).
Everyone knows what metastasis is, but many patients describe the phenomenon of reverse metastasis when they are recovering from cancer or candida or other types of infection. Their symptoms cycle backward historically. Patients re-experience disease states they’ve had in the past or the original tumor will get bigger before it goes away as cancerous cells from other metastasized tumors gather at the original site of infection. Essiac is a treatment that’s known for causing a reverse metastasis. When a cancer patient takes Essiac, the tumor at the original site grows bigger before it begins to disintegrate and fall apart. Somatidian theory can explain this phenomenon. Somatids go through two cycles of development: a healthy cycle, and an abnormal, extended cycle. The healthy cycle stimulates the patient’s immune system. The abnormal, extended cycle involves the development of somatid-forms that infect the body. In order to restore health, some cancer treatments cause the somatid to cycle backward toward dormancy. In doing so, the patient experiences symptoms of infections they’ve had in the past and sometimes, original tumors grow larger (before crumbling into pieces and being discarded from the body). Essiac is not recommended for patients with organ cancer or brain cancer for this reason because growing tumors located inside organs can put a squeeze on the blood supply or other important functional components of the body which can lead to death before the cancer is cured.
The reason why pH therapy works is because cancer cells don’t need oxygen to survive. By changing the pH of the environment surrounding the cancer cell, the cell’s ability to ferment glucose (which requires an acidic environment) is seriously impaired. Fermentation requires that the cell maintain an acidic pH somewhere between 5.5 and 6.5. At pH 5.5, the cell becomes fragile and vulnerable to heat. At pH levels above 6.5, the fermentation process can’t continue. The cancer cell loses its ability to manufacture energy from glucose which means that it can’t sustain itself anymore. Tumor growth stops and the cancer cells either die or revert back to normal, healthy cells.
Cesium Therapy, for example, works because Cesium and Potassium share certain chemical characteristics. Cesium sits in the same column, two rows below Potassium on the periodic table. This is significant because when elements are located in the same column on the periodic table, they often share similar characteristics. The Alkali Metals (which is the name of the column that includes Hydrogen, Lithium, Sodium, Potassium, Rubidium, Cesium, and Francium), are especially famous for sharing physical and chemical characteristics. Because Cesium and Potassium share chemical characteristics, the cell, which regularly transports Potassium across the membrane, now eagerly transports Cesium across the cell membrane. But unlike Potassium, Cesium doesn’t transport glucose into the cells. So the cancer cell that admits Cesium across its membrane can’t continue the fermentation process. And on top of that, Cesium allows Oxygen to enter the cell which raises its pH level. The cell, as a result, becomes more alkaline and then it either dies or becomes healthy again.
High pH Therapy (Cesium Therapy) is often combined with high-dose vitamin and mineral supplements along with Laetrile (also known as vitamin B17) in order to kill the cancer cells and at the same time enhance the patient’s immunity by addressing nutritional deficiencies. Though there are many moving pieces in the cancer-puzzle, a number of integrative medicine experts today view cancer as a deficiency of vitamin B17 (Laetrile). When a person is deficient in this essential vitamin (which is almost non-existent in the American diet), a chain reaction of events can lead to cancer and other major disease states. Cesium can kill cancer cells and make them vulnerable while Laetrile can fortify the immune system and rebuild the body’s defenses to effect a complete cure of the disease.
Low pH therapy can be physiologically more uncomfortable and challenging because it involves creating a highly acidic environment in the body coupled with exposure to high temperatures. As such, this treatment method is more risky and requires more vigilant supervision by a doctor or healer than Low pH Therapy. Low pH Therapy is a viable choice however, for patients who feel drawn to this type of therapy. For example, there are a number of Low pH Therapy treatment facilities in Germany, so patients who are located in that region of the world may choose to use this treatment method because it’s accessible to them.
Entelev (also known as Protocel, CanCell, Sheridan’s Formula, Jim’s Juice, etc.), is a pH-oriented cancer treatment that works to normalize cancer cell metabolism using similar chemistry basics. The formula inhibits the production of ATP (energy packets) in cancer cells, similar to High-pH Therapy.
Entelev should NOT be used with any other type of cancer treatment, however. It is a strictly stand-alone treatment method and using it in combination with other cancer treatments can diminish its medicinal properties.
The pH therapies give patients the opportunity to consider how the chemistry of the body as a whole on the atomic and ionic level can have an impact on cellular health. Our ability as humans to change our pH levels (the acidity and alkalinity of our bodies) by changing what we eat is an important thing to consider after a cancer diagnosis or if you’re struggling to overcome an infection that’s resistant to other types of therapy. The pH of a cell is related to (and an expression of) its electrical charge. In other blog posts, we present a variety of treatments that exploit these electrical charges to either find or destroy the cancer cells / infectious organisms. Since electro-medicine is new to a lot of people, but pH is not, it can be helpful to make this connection and better understand how much of a role electricity plays in cellular biology. Also, the fact that various treatment modalities have been developed to target pH and the electrical charge of cancer cells lends credibility to their value in treating cancer.
