Prelude: The Unholy Business of Health Care
Could it be that the most respected of industries is actually the most corrupt of all? Decades ago, the medical establishment went to war to silence a purported quackery of holistic medicine and chiropractors. The purported perversion of medicine which the establishment fought so viciously to quell was the contention that vitamin C is beneficial. It has become a conveniently forgotten history, but more importantly, a rewritten history. The new history is that the allopathic establishment discovered the benefits of vitamin C, and it totally never tried to destroy alternative researchers who were reporting its benefits. It is still spoken of as little as possible.
While some practicing doctors may be honorable people who seek to help others, their schools, organizations, and governmental agencies are all controlled by pharmaceutical companies which have less noble intentions. It is best for them if diseases are treated, but never cured. The trend is unmistakable. How many decades has it been since any honest effort was made at developing a cure for any disease? Was it polio? How long ago was that?
Alternative medicine continues to eliminate supposedly incurable illnesses on a regular basis. Where would the extremely influential pharmaceutical industry be if their biggest profit illness, namely cancer, were curable quickly, cheaply, and easily? They would use their influence in government and with media corporations to make certain that alternative medicine was either discredited, or simply given no mention.
It is exactly what has happened. In the United States, nothing can be cited or advertised as being medically useful by any company that is lacking official approval. This is regardless of how safe, effective, or natural its products may be. In practice, this approval may only be obtained from the pharmaceutical cartel that the Food and Drug Administration closely partners with. Since safe, effective, and natural cures cannot be patented by these groups for their maximum capitalization, the natural and significantly cheaper remedies are never given approval. Without approval, cures can neither be marketed nor labeled for what they really do. Producers may be imprisoned for making "unapproved medical claims" if they honestly describe what they sell, and it has happened plenty of times. It is how Big Medicine has traditionally destroyed competing alternatives, but the Internet is beginning to change the rules.
Silence The Cherry Growers! Send U.S. Marshals!
In 2005, certain cherry farmers boasted of cherry's health benefits on their websites, and this required the swift intervention of the Food and Drug Administration. The uninitiated farmers were not aware of the great threat that nutrition is to the lucrative disease management industry, until 29 of them received threatening letters from the F.D.A. Their unforgivable offense was posting the results of scientific studies to the Internet that concerned how cherries naturally eliminate many types of inflammation better and faster than all known drugs, with the possible exception of certain potent steroid compounds. It was found that cherry concentrate in supplement form is more effective in neutralizing arthritis pain than the most expensive medications, with absolutely no risks or side effects. A month's supply of such pain-relieving cherry supplements costs about $12.00, which is a discomforting fact for a U.S. arthritis industry that makes over 11 billion dollars per year in maintaining patients' risky drug addictions. An uninsured patient must pay between $1,000 and $3,000 per month for these drugs, without counting the doctor fees. The cherry farmers had to be silenced. The farmers were told that if they continued citing the scientific findings, then the F.D.A. would reclassify cherries as an unapproved drug, and ban their sale in the United States. The F.D.A. actually stated that the use of cherries has never been proven "safe and effective". What follows is a copy of the F.D.A. threat letter.
The Crime: Telling The Truth
The cherry farmers had been informing people via the Internet that multiple studies had proven that cherries work better than pharmaceuticals for certain conditions, and in particular, arthritis pain. Publicly speaking about this threat to the F.D.A.'s pharmaceutical empire was their only crime, as admitted by the F.D.A. in its own paper trail. The letter contended that, "articles intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment or prevention of disease in man are drugs". Thus, the F.D.A will reclassify any threat to the industry as a "drug" to give itself authority to ban or regulate it -- even cherries. Cherry farmers were banned from telling us that their product could save us from them.
It is noteworthy that the F.D.A. promised that without the farmer's "compliance" it would begin enforcement action without further notice, and without any judicial oversight. Make no mistake about what was meant by "enforcement", for their history makes it painfully clear. They would have convened upon those farms in the middle of the night with a small army of U.S. Marshals in full S.W.A.T. gear, and they would have held those farmers' families at gunpoint as their cherry crops were stolen or destroyed. The agents would have referred to this as confiscating drug paraphernalia (cherries), for the cherries having been an unapproved drug. The farmers knew the real threat was that they would be financially wiped-out, and it was a very legitimate concern.
As journalists, we can report that concentrated cherry supplements do actually work better than the most expensive medicines for arthritis pain. The F.D.A. was willing to shut down the entire U.S. cherry industry to keep the public ignorant and dependent on bankrupting drugs.
The Scam of Heartburn and Indigestion
Almost everything you have been told about heartburn, indigestion, and common stomach ailments is a lie. Indigestion is not caused by excess acid in the stomach, nor is acid reflux. In fact, the worst treatment for either is taking an antacid, whether prescribed or not. Being acidic is the natural, healthy state of the stomach, so there is no such thing as an excess of acid or acid build-up in regards to the stomach. It is like claiming that the lungs suffer from excess oxygen.
Attempting to neutralize stomach acid to treat an uneasy stomach is as wise as treating an excess of blood cells with blood letting, but they both mirror the methodology of standard allopathic medicine. Both cases would be demonstrations of using poor medicine to treat only the symptoms of relatively non-existent health conditions, of which the establishment either cannot accurately diagnose, or finds it too unprofitable to do so.
A healthy human stomach contains one of the most powerful acids in existence: hydrochloric acid. This highly destructive acid is the core fuel of the stomach; and in its most concentrated form, it will tear through titanium like a hot knife cutting through butter. The truth about most stomach disorders is one of not having enough acid, so the industry has made fools out of most of us. The true reason behind acid reflux and indigestion is that whenever the stomach acid is weak, it must churn violently to make better use of its limited acid, which in-turn induces pressure and causes back flows of the existing acid. Antacids seem to work because they render the acid being spewed by the churning stomach into the esophagus as less potent, and therefore less painful.
In the rare cases when acid is being over-produced by the stomach, it is usually the body attempting to over-compensate for antacids having been routinely administered. The effects of taking antacids snowballs, preventing proper digestion, and eventually causing the very excess acid problem for which the treatments had originally been meant to stop. In order to recreate stomach acid which has been neutralized, the body must carry out a set of chemical reactions which cause the rest of the body to become more acidic.
The next time that you experience indigestion problems, try the experiment of giving your stomach the acid that it needs. Take one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, and optionally follow it with a glass of water. Your stomach churning and pain will subside within minutes, unless the problem is ulcers. The result is likely to amaze you, especially if you have been suckered for years by antacid advertisers and doctors. Of course, no pharmaceutical company will make billions from this, and none of them will ever be able to become the gate keeper of this remedy by getting a patent to monopolize apple cider vinegar. Likewise, regulatory agencies will not be able to get funding from this either, so do not expect to read about this in the medical journals, or hear it reported in the regular media. You will see whatever is good for maintaining the current business model: antacids.
How Antacids Destroy Health
"There are two main consequences of low stomach acid: 1. You become protein malnourished. When your stomach acid is low, you are not able to digest protein. Improper digestion of protein creates toxins in your intestines that can set the stage for illness and disease. Improper digestion of protein also creates acidic blood, since protein is by nature acidic. 2. You become mineral deficient. As your blood becomes more acidic, it will look for minerals from anywhere in your body, in order to get your blood to its more ideal alkaline state. Acidic blood robs your body of minerals, even taking minerals from your bones (which is important to know if you want to prevent osteoporosis).
"Low stomach acid eventually creates a vicious cycle: low stomach acid = low minerals = acidic blood. This cycle continues because acidic blood further creates low minerals and low stomach acid. Once this vicious cycle has started, there is a cascade of consequences: You could eat plenty of protein and still be protein malnourished. This raises cortisol levels [stress hormones], thereby raising your blood glucose (blood sugar levels). Elevated cortisol adversely affects your behavior and temperament. Eventually, your adrenals become depleted (adrenal fatigue) and DHEA, the youth hormone, is suppressed, leading to premature aging. Low DHEA and high cortisol affect your brain and behavior, but that's not all. The vicious cycle of low stomach acid affects your inner ecosystem too. Low stomach acid can lead to more bad guys (pathogenic bacteria, candida and viruses) than good guys (healthy microflora), thus lowering your immunity.
"Here are some of the common symptoms and disorders caused by low stomach acid: bloating, belching, and flatulence immediately after meals, heartburn (often thought to be caused by too much stomach acid), indigestion, diarrhea, or constipation, undigested food in stools, acne, rectal itching, chronic candida, hair loss in women, multiple food allergies, iron deficiency, weak, peeling, or cracked fingernails, chronic fatigue, adrenal fatigue, dry skin, various 'autoimmune'..diseases."
-- Donna Gates (bodyecology.com)
Pharmaceuticals are inherently toxic to the human body, because they are specifically designed to disable systems of the body, for the sake of symptom suppression; and thus the toxic-by-design drugs cause disruptions in the gastrointestinal tract. Drugs routinely cause the stomach itself to poorly digest foods, which results in additional malnourishment. The resultant lack of absorbed minerals disrupts the pH balance of the body, which causes a snowballing effect in which a body is less able to utilize its other nutrients, such as vitamins. In this typical state of semi-starvation, the body is more vulnerable to sickness and cancers. Meanwhile obesity or wasting away is occurring for most individuals to some degree, which is ironically due to the malnutrition from our processed foods, and the drugs that we believe will compensate for the subsequent self-inflicted diseases. The inevitable health tailspin is like being chained to a treadmill that keeps getting faster and faster, while hoping that we can continue running fast enough. Thus, malnutrition may be a bigger problem for the industrialized nations than the so-called 'poor nations', because of the chemical industry.
The Link Between Body pH and Diseases
The origin of the word disease is dis - ease: to not be at ease and harmony. Most medical practitioners have forgotten this, and they merely participate in what is essentially chemical warfare against the symptoms of bodies at dis-ease.
Times have changed much over the eons to place our health at dis-ease. Nowadays our diet hardly mimics the flora of Eden. Even when we try to eat well, our foods are saturated with insecticides, growth hormones, raised in deficient soils, have so-called "flavor enhancer" chemicals, and are genetically modified -- usually without any warning labels. Regulations have even been rewritten to redefine what can be presented as "all natural" on food labeling, so that the term "natural" is now routinely used to hide chemically engineered ingredients that would be far from what any reasonable human being would call "natural". Take for instance, certain genetically engineered yeast products that were made in unsupervised Chinese factories are often labeled as natural ingredients.
The goal of the involved powers-that-be is to engineer cheap, mass-producible foods, that are highly addictive; and to keep us ignorant of it. These foods line the aisles of typical grocery stores. Even colorings have been altered from being natural, and in some cases, they are petroleum based.
In the tap water, we have chlorine and fluoride, in addition to hundreds of other toxins. Some of these are poisonous heavy metals which accumulate over years, since they are never naturally flushed by the body. Even when not consumed orally, these still enter our bodies through absorption into our skin, and into our lungs via the water mist of showers -- both direct paths into the blood.
The end result of our accumulated toxicity and everything mentioned previously is that our body chemistry has been altered to become acidic. The relationship between an acidic body and illness has long been established, and the medical term for this condition is "acidosis". Acidosis ironically leads to an acid deficiency in the only organ requiring acid: the stomach. There is an inverse relationship between the pH of the stomach and the rest of the body, so whenever a stomach is not as acidic as it ought to be, then the rest of the body becomes acidic. The toxicity of the majority of foods in a typical diet causes the body to become more acidic during digestion, and this includes most tap water. An acidic body (most bodies nowadays) destroys its own cells, has a weakened immune system, ages rapidly, experiences skin and hair problems, has metabolic and weight regulation problems, is disease prone, is prone to allergies, cannot effectively absorb nutrients, cannot effectively flush toxins, cannot properly cope with cholesterol, cannot properly regulate minerals such as calcium, and most importantly, cannot maintain high levels of oxygen.
The opposite of being acidic is being alkaline. Chemicals (and blood) which are alkaline readily absorb oxygen. Most pathogens and cancers cannot survive in an oxygen-rich, alkaline environment. For instance, oxygenated water (hydrogen peroxide) is an effective infection killer, because harmful microorganisms consistently die in the presence of anything highly oxygenated.
Our typically acidic bodies cannot retain enough oxygen to function properly or fight infections. When a body reaches a pH level of 7.4 (alkaline instead of acidic), cancers become dormant, and at 7.6, all cancers die rapidly, along with every type of invader.
"Drugs, medications and toxic chemicals have the effect of lowering the pH of the body, that is the reason why there are side effects to drugs and none of them effect a cure. When body pH drops below 6.4, enzymes are deactivated, digestion does not work properly, vitamins, minerals and food supplements cannot effectively assimilate. Acid decreases energy production in the cells, the ability to repair damaged cells, the ability to detoxify heavy metals, and makes the body more susceptible to fatigue and illness. Your body pH affects everything. Research has proven that disease cannot survive in an alkaline state, and that, viruses, bacteria, yeast, mold, fungus, candida and cancer cells thrive in an acidic, low oxygen, low pH environment. An acidic pH can result from an acid forming diet, emotional stress, toxic overload, and immune reactions or any process that deprives the cells of oxygen and other nutrients. The body will try to compensate for acid by utilizing alkaline mineral reserves, like sodium from the stomach, and calcium from the bones. This is a primary cause of osteoporosis and a number of other diseases. If there are not enough minerals in the diet to compensate, acid build-up in the cells will occur, resulting in symptoms like pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, MS, and lupus. Cancer is not compatible in a healthy pH environment full of oxygen. For example, cancer of the heart doesn't exist. This is because blood flowing from the lungs into the heart are at the highest pH and oxygen levels within the entire body. As the blood travels through the lungs, acidic toxins are thrown out of the system leaving it rich with oxygen and a high blood pH. In the absence of oxygen, glucose undergoes fermentation to lactic acid. This causes the pH of the cell to drop even lower. Urine and saliva pH of terminal cancer patients almost always runs between 4.0 and 5.5. When the cancer goes into metastases the pH drops even lower.
"In 1964, only 1 person in 214 contracted cancer. Today it is 1 in 3 females and 1 in 2 males. The determining factor between health and disease is pH. It is not uncommon for the average American to test between 4 pH and 5 pH."
-- Keiichi Morishita, Hidden Truth of Cancer
Potential hydrogen (pH) is the measurement of hydrogen ion concentration in any solution. The higher the pH reading, the more alkaline it is, and the more oxygen rich the fluid may become. A lower pH reading indicates that a solution is more acidic and oxygen resistant. The pH scale is from 0 to 14 with 7.0 being neutral. Anything above 7.0 is considered to be alkaline, and anything below 7.0 is acidic. For curing cancer, that $1.23 bottle of liquidized oxygen (hydrogen peroxide) is considerably safer and more effective than the $300,000.00 chemotherapy regimen that a doctor would recommend.
Dr. Otto Warburg (pictured left) was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1931, but his discoveries have been suppressed by the medical establishment so successfully that only alternative medicine researchers ever learn of them, or of him. The Nobel Foundation explained why it awarded Dr. Warburg the Nobel Prize by writing, "For his discovery of the nature and mode of action of the respiratory enzyme, the Nobel Prize has been awarded to him in 1931. This discovery has opened up new ways in the fields of cellular metabolism and cellular respiration. He has shown, among other things, that cancerous cells can live and develop, even in the absence of oxygen".
Dr. Warburg discovered that cancer cells are not fueled by oxygen as normal cells are. The high levels of oxygen that are found in healthy, alkaline bodies are toxic to cancers. He found that cancers get their energy from sugars and a process of fermentation in acidic environments. He proved empirically the relationship between cancers, acidic body pH, and cellular oxygen starvation. His findings demonstrated that cancers are merely a symptom of acidosis, and therefore it is impossible to truly cure any cancer without first curing the underlying acidosis.
Standard cancer care now means almost certainly dying from either the cancer, or more likely, the treatment itself. Cancer deaths usually result from the toxic effects of mainstream cancer treatments. These increase a body's acidity, virtually guaranteeing that cancer symptoms will return elsewhere, even if the initial tumors are destroyed. Thus, the dismal lifetime failure rate of standard cancer medicine is a jaw-dropping 96%. They call it medicine and claim that it is scientifically validated, but it only works 4% of the time. Doing nothing is a more effective treatment for cancers than standard therapies. To manipulate the statistics, any patient who does not die within 5 years is reported to have had a successful treatment. The treatments stimulate the acidic conditions that originally caused the cancers, because they damage the same immune system that is needed to fight cancer cells, and the treatments randomly damage the organs throughout a body. Therefore, cancers tend to spread rapidly following standard treatments.
"But nobody today can say that one does not know what cancer and its prime cause be. On the contrary, there is no disease whose prime cause is better known, so that today ignorance is no longer an excuse that one cannot do more about prevention. That prevention of cancer will come there is no doubt, for man wishes to survive. But how long prevention will be avoided depends on how long the prophets of agnosticism will succeed in inhibiting the application of scientific knowledge in the cancer field. In the meantime, millions of men must die of cancer unnecessarily."

"Everyone should know that the war on cancer is largely a fraud."
-- Dr. Linus Pauling, two time
"To the cancer establishment, a cancer patient is a profit center. The actual clinical and scientific evidence does not support the claims of the cancer industry. Conventional cancer treatments are in place as the law of the land because they pay, not heal, the best. Decades of the politics-of-cancer-as-usual have kept you from knowing this, and will continue to do so unless you wake up to their reality."
-- John Diamond, M.D.
"Chemotherapy is an incredibly lucrative business for doctors, hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies. The medical establishment wants everyone to follow the same exact protocol. They don't want to see the chemotherapy industry go under, and that's the number one obstacle to any progress in oncology."
-- Glen Warner, M.D.
"You wouldn't believe how many FDA officials or relatives or acquaintances of FDA officials come to see me as patients in Hanover. You wouldn't believe this, or directors of the AMA, or ACA, or the presidents of orthodox cancer institutes."
-- Hans Nieper, M.D.,
"When Dr. Hamer was arrested in 1997 for having given three people medical advice without a medical license, the police confiscated his patients' files and had them analyzed. Subsequently, one public prosecutor was forced to admit during the trial that, after five years, 6,000 out of 6,500 patients with mostly 'terminal cancer' were still alive. With conventional treatment the figures are generally just the reverse."
-- Dr. Caroline Markolin, Ph.D.
"As a chemist trained to interpret data, it is incomprehensible to me that physicians can ignore the clear evidence that chemotherapy does much, much more harm than good."
-- Alan Nixon, Ph.D., Past President
"Two to 4% of cancers respond to chemotherapy."
-- Ralph Moss, Ph.D
"The FDA protects the big drug companies, and is subsequently rewarded, and using the government's police powers, they attack those who threaten the big drug companies. The thing that bugs me is that the people think the FDA is protecting them. It isn't. What the FDA is doing, and what the public thinks it is doing are as different as night and day."

"In point of fact, fluoride causes more human cancer deaths, and causes it faster, than any other chemical."
-- Dean Burke, Former Chief Chemist Emeritus,
"Most cancer patients in this country die of chemotherapy. Chemotherapy does not eliminate breast, colon or lung cancers. This fact has been documented for over a decade. Yet doctors still use chemotherapy for these tumors. Women with breast cancer are likely to die faster with chemo than without it."
-- Alan Levin, M.D.
"When a patient is found to have a tumor, the only thing the doctor discusses with that patient is what he intends to do about the tumor. If a patient with a tumor is receiving radiation or chemotherapy, the only question that is asked is, 'How is the tumor doing'? No one ever asks how the patient is doing. In my medical training, I remember well seeing patients who were getting radiation and/or chemotherapy. The tumor would get smaller and smaller, but the patient would be getting sicker and sicker. At autopsy we would hear, 'Isn't that marvelous! The tumor is gone!' Yes, it was, but so was the patient. How many millions of times are we going to have to repeat these scenarios before we realize that we are treating the wrong thing?"
-- Dr. Philip Binzel
Cancer Cells are Normal -- Acidosis Is Not
Every person who takes breath on this Earth has cancer. Cancer cells are a normal part of existence. A healthy body with a healthy immune system will eliminate these cancer cells at roughly the same rate that they are spawned. The human body eliminates thousands, and perhaps millions of cancer cells every day, to ensure that it is clean of these mutated cells. It is how things are supposed to work. As tissues and cells die, such as those of killed cancer cells, the decaying tissues ferment to make the body somewhat more acidic and toxic. With the very active participation of the liver and kidneys, the body's regulatory and immune systems simultaneously trigger the chemical reactions to shift the blood from being slightly acidic back to alkaline by harnessing key minerals. This is how a healthy body cures itself of cancer every day, and all of this is a testament to the wonder of God's creation.
If a body is made too acidic by diet, toxins, or a suppressed immune system, then things no longer work as they are supposed to. Excessive acidity impairs the immune system which is the core of life itself. When the immune system is compromised, the body loses its ability to alkalize itself, and then the body loses its ability to absorb oxygen effectively.
With the low amounts of oxygen that are seen with extreme acidosis, cells must use fermentation for energy, and this transforms healthy cells into cancer cells. The transition into cells that live from energy that is derived from fermentation is actually part of a survival response. Whenever there is oxygen depletion, there may be an excess of cancer cells that may form into tumors. This cancer is no disease in itself, but merely a troubling symptom that the body's immune system can no longer regulate itself because external forces have overwhelmed it. The cause may be vitamin and mineral depletion, illnesses, extreme stress, chemical carcinogens, unhealthy (chemically altered) fats and oils, pharmaceuticals, or a lack of omega-3 oils. Diet usually plays a huge role in making a person acidic, and therefore oxygen depleted; especially the synthesized food products that are ironically marketed as healthy alternatives to natural fats and oils.
"After one recent survey, two pathologists reported that after carrying out 400 postmortem examinations, they had found that in more than half the patients the wrong diagnosis had been made. This presumably also means that in more than half the patients the wrong treatment had been given. And since so many modern treatments are undeniably powerful, it also presumably means that a large proportion of those patients died because of their treatment. The two pathologists reported that potentially treatable disease was missed in one in seven patients. They found that 65 out of 134 cases of pneumonia had gone unrecognized, while out of 51 patients who had suffered heart attacks, doctors had failed to diagnose the problem in 18 cases."
-- Dr. Vernon Coleman
Acidosis is a byproduct of an over-taxed immune system, for it is known that in sickness, the human body is always acidic. The orthodox establishment considers acidosis to be a symptom of whatever disease happens to be present, instead of considering that acidosis could be the root cause of multiple disease states. The utter lack of success in curing cancers may be due in part to a fundamental misunderstanding of these relationships.
Cancer is one of the many symptoms of acidosis: albeit one of the worst. Therefore, tumors are not really a symptom of cancers, but of acidosis. Cancer cells are normal in even healthy bodies, after all. To the orthodox schools, the tumors are treated like they are the disease, and this mysterious disease is believed to be caused by another mysterious force called "cancer". It does not require 12 years of intensive college study to immediately see the glaring flaws in logic. One only needs to holistically look at the big picture to see it. Given that acidosis is known to appear at the onset of most serious diseases, including cancers, and all general infections, it is apparent that acidosis is not merely a coincidental symptom of hundreds of unrelated diseases. It is a core cause of disease.
Cancers have been cured countless times with alternative therapies designed to adjust patients' pH (and thereby oxygen intake). People have been literally saved with food-grade hydrogen peroxide. Of course, there are much better methods available, and virtually all alternative therapies are more reliable, safer, quicker, and cheaper than standard treatments. Remember that orthodox cancer doctors can only boast of a 4% lifetime cure rate for their best treatments, and "survival" has been redefined to mean just 5 years of life after diagnosis -- to cook their own statistics. We would do very little bragging if 96% of our patients died from our treatments. The orthodox cancer industry is nothing short of a system of genocide.
