According to the National Cancer Center at the National Institute of Health, the word cancer is “a term used for diseases in which abnormal cells divide uncontrollably and are able to invade other tissues.” We all know the rest of the story… thousands of lives lost from breast cancer alone and billions of dollars wasted in the drive to “find a cure.” Despite all this, surgery, chemo, and radiation are still the only conventional options available. But what if conventional cancer research and the treatment plans that stem from them, have been asking the wrong questions?
The Cancer-Fungus Connection
“[The terms] ‘tumor’ and ‘cancer’ are formal descriptions. They do not say anything at all,” says Dr. Tullio Simoncini, a trained physician based in Rome, Italy who specializes in oncology, diabetes and metabolic disorders. His book, Cancer Is A Fungus, examines the causes of rogue cells dividing to form malignant tumors. His conclusion: “Cancer is a fungus that will do what all fungi do − form colonies and spread throughout the host area.”
He first made this “out-of-the-box” connection after he noticed the milky-white appearance inside the cancer tumors in his patients. As any woman who has suffered through a yeast infection can confirm, this is similar to how surface-area outbreaks such as candida albicans often appear.
Another link between fungi and cancer is their relationship with sugar. Healthy cells in our bodies use glucose and oxygen to produce ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the main source of energy for cell function. Cancer cells, on the other hand, use fermentation to produce ATP. Fermentation does not use oxygen and is, in general, a very inefficient way to produce energy. Cancer cells must consume large amounts of sugar in order to survive and grow.
Cancer cells love sugar and so do fungi. What is the first thing you do when candida gets out of control? That’s right − lay off the sugar and simple carbs like bread and pasta. Sugar feeds cancer and it feeds fungal growth as well.
In addition, growing fungi produce chemicals called mycotoxins, which have played some part in the development of cancer in humans according to experimental data. The connection between mycotoxins and cancer lies in its ability to effect the protein production within cells. For example, it can effect protein 53 (p53), a protein that, when healthy, can activate other proteins that repair DNA. According to Dr. Lynn Jennings, family practitioner and medical writer: “A defective p53 protein could allow abnormal cells to proliferate, resulting in cancer. As many as 50% of all human tumors contain p53 mutations.”
If Cancer is a Fungus, Then Treat it Like a Fungus
Dr. A.V. Constantini, retired head of the World Health Organization’s center for mycotoxins in food, believes that an anti-fungal cancer medication may be just over the horizon. Over the last decades, there has been some anecdotal evidence to support this prediction. Dr. Simoncini, on the other hand, is more doubtful because of the basic nature of fungi itself. “They are social elements,” he says. “They network and they will adapt.”
Dr. Simoncini’s solution to heal cancer naturally is simple. It adheres to the basic principles of natural cancer therapies and to my 7 Essentials ™ System, an evidence-based approach to support and heal the body naturally: change the internal environment in the body from one of acidity (which cancer cells love) to alkalinity.
Dr. Simoncini recommends the use of simple baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate therapy. Because the most effective way to shrink tumors is through direct contact with the sodium bicarbonate, in most cases a catheter is used to go through the arteries to the organs within the body. For some cancers, including breast cancer, a simple local infiltration or injection can be used instead. Dr. Simoncini himself claims that this method carries a 99% success rate for healing breast cancer without surgery.
One can also enjoy an alkaline Baking Soda drink every day. In a glass of purified water, add the juice of ½ lemon and 1 teaspoon baking soda. Stir and enjoy. Because this is such an alkaline drink, always consume it 30 minutes before and at least two hours after a meal. Proper digestion requires an acidic pH in the stomach.
In order to prevent breast cancer naturally, be aware of breast cancer signs, and follow a healthy anti-cancer regime that includes the “7 Essentials” of an anti-cancer diet, herbal supplementation, detoxing, emotional healing, biological dentistry, energy balancing and early detection. Maintaining the proper alkaline balance in your body is key to keeping fungal growth − and breast cancer − at bay.
