Immune System and Cancer
Synopsis: This article describes the importance of the immune system in fighting cancer and the damage done to the immune system by conventional medical treatments
Man used to be the hopeless victim of his circumstance. When Louis Pasteur developed the idea that bacteria cause disease and chemicals can kill bacteria, modern medicine was born. Ever since that day, we have struggled to develop chemicals in order to enhance our health.
I do not wish to discredit the excellent work done by medical researchers in developing effective medicines. I remember in the 1920's and 1930's when mastoid infections were rampant and children were routinely given the disfiguring "mastoid operation" which left one ear laid back over the hole where the porous mastoid bone had been scraped out of the skull. One could scarcely go shopping without seeing one of these little boys or girls with one side of their skull caved in behind their ear. Chemical intervention by the means of antibiotics has delivered society from this scourge.
However, there is a philosophy which says that we live in an ocean of bacteria and
viruses. It is not the microorganisms that cause disease, it is an inefficient immune system. We see the evidence of this truth constantly around us. One person in an office gets a very bad cold. The one sitting next to him doesn't get a sniffle. Certainly both were exposed to the same microorganisms. What is the difference? It is in the differences between their immune systems, isn't it? That's why we get a flu shot, to build up our immune system against the infection. The immune system destroys cells foreign to the body.
A popular expression in one area of the alternative medical treatment of cancer is this; "All cancer is the result of an immune system that didn't destroy mutant cells" Obviously, cancer cells are foreign to the body. The immune system of a healthy person destroys "10,000" mutated (cancer) cells every day. When this defense ceases, the cancer can multiply and become a clinical case of cancer.
An AMAS test (Covered elsewhere in this series) measures the level of this normal activity by measuring the waste products of the action of the immune system against these cancer cells as this waste is found and measured in the blood serum.
Conventional medical practice knows that their treatments of chemotherapy and radiation are devastating to the already weakened immune system, but they have very little in their black bag of surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy to deal with the problem. The chemotherapy agents that were used on me actually cause cancer. It says so right on the label. Conventional medicine makes the best trade off that they can with what they have, so they damage the body in their attempt to damage the cancer cells.
Sometimes this system works and a patient recovers and lives, cancer free, for a long time. Usually, the cancer will recur in five or six years and then conventional medicine has nothing to do but to try to make the patient comfortable and to extend the patient's life as long as they can. They can not effectively treat recurrent cancer.
Now, suppose that instead of damaging the body's only defense against cancer with chemicals and radiation, we focus on strengthening the immune system so it will do it's job? This is exactly what a large segment of alternative cancer treatment does.
First, we must identify the cause of the distress to the immune system. Sadly, it is no secret. The biggest cause is in the way that we eat. We destroy the enzymes in our food by cooking. The pancreas can double it's size in trying to keep up with the demand and then it quits in exhaustion, severely compromising our immune system and establishing a climate that is vulnerable to the formation of a clinical case of cancer.
