Cancer is developed by an inefficient immune system

Nothing causes cancer. However, an inefficient immune system or lymphatic system allows cancer to develop.


The American Cancer society Cancer Book reads “Only when the immune system is incapable of destroying these malignant cells will cancer develop” (page X!X 1986 edition).


Cancer is not a disease. It is a symptom of an inefficient immune system, and a signal to you to detoxify your body and build your immune system through nourishment.


Treating cancer alternatively discusses in detail alternative, natural defense treatment options that you are able to do in the confines of your own home. Take action now, for indeed we are in control of our health. For more information see the e-book - “So Why do You Get Cancer


The immune system, which is made up of special cells, proteins, tissues, and organs, defends people against germs and microorganisms every day.


In most cases, the immune system does a great job of keeping people healthy and preventing infections. But sometimes problems with the immune system can lead to cancer, illness and many other infections.


A reversal for cancer is to make sure the immune system or lymphatic system is strong and active, and it will send internal “missiles” to kill off any and all cancer cells through detoxification. No wonder it has taken medical scientists so long to discover the cancer virus. There isn’t one! 


The breakthrough in cancer will come in the strengthening of the immune system.


Cancer signals a breakdown of the immune system. To fight it let us strengthen the immune system, not destroy it even more with chemo, radiation and surgery.


Rather than cut and mutilate the body, let’s arm the lymphatic system and increase their production through proper nourishment. There is so much we can do working within our natural defense system, rather than wreaking havoc on it form outside.


What is the immune system?


The immune system is a network of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to defend the body against attacks by “foreign” invaders.


These are primarily microbes—tiny organisms such as bacteria, parasites, and fungi that can cause infections. Viruses also cause infections, but are too primitive to be classified as living organisms.


The human body provides an ideal environment for many microbes.

It is the immune system’s job to keep them out or, failing that, to seek out and destroy them.


When the immune system hits the wrong target, however, it can unleash a torrent of disorders, including allergic diseases, arthritis, and a form of diabetes. If the immune system is crippled, other kinds of diseases result including cancer.


The purpose of treating cancer alternatively is to strengthen the immune system, thereby beginning to reverse the development of cancer.


The immune system is amazingly complex. It can recognize and remember millions of different enemies, and it can produce secretions (release of fluids) and cells to match up with and wipe out nearly all of them.


The secret to its success is an elaborate and dynamic communications network. Millions and millions of cells, organized into sets and subsets, gather like clouds of bees swarming around a hive and pass information back and forth in response to an infection.


Once immune cells receive the alarm, they become activated and begin to produce powerful chemicals. These substances allow the cells to regulate their own growth and behavior, enlist other immune cells, and direct the new recruits to trouble spots.


Although scientists have learned much about the immune system, they continue to study how the body launches attacks that destroy invading microbes, infected cells, and tumors while ignoring healthy tissues.


New technologies for identifying individual immune cells are now allowing scientists to determine quickly which targets are triggering an immune response. Improvements in microscopy are permitting the first-ever observations of living B cells, T cells, and other cells as they interact within lymph nodes and other body tissues.


In addition, scientists are rapidly unraveling the genetic blueprints that direct the human immune response, as well as those that dictate the biology of bacteria, viruses, and parasites. The combination of new technology and expanded genetic information will no doubt reveal even more about how the body protects itself from disease.


Yet at the same time have you noticed that medical authorities have decided that various key parts of the body’s lymphatic system are not really necessary and they often cut them out? This includes;


·        the tonsils and adenoids,

·        the lymph nodes,

·        the appendix and

·        the spleen.


Say good-bye to your immune system. A bit scary, isn’t it.


By the way, before scientists can conduct experiments on mice to find new ways of externally poisoning the mouse’s mutated (cancerous) cells, they must first breed a strain of mice which has no immune system.


We can not have the body’s natural defense system messing up our experiments and healing itself naturally!  Amazing how scientists seem to want to ignore what the body can do for itself and turn to chemicals and other pharmaceuticals to do what a strengthened immune system could do for itself.


Dr. Max Gerson puts it this way.  “Cancer is an extraordinary symptom when the underlying cause is to be found in the poisoning of the liver.”


He continues:


“after more than 25 years of cancer work I can draw the following conclusions:


  1. Cancer is not a local but a general disease, caused chiefly by the poisoning of food stuffs prepared by modern farming and the food industry. Medicine must be able to adapt its therapeutic methods to the damages of the processes of our modern civilization.


  1. A method is created to detoxify the body, kill the tumor masses and to absorb and eliminate them. This is the restoration of the healing power of the immune system.


  1. A natural alternative way has been found to restore the liver and the immune system if not too far destroyed and repair the destruction caused by the tumor masses.”


I want to say it over and over again. The bottom line is that degenerative diseases including cancer and the ageing process itself can be slowed, halted, and even reversed by doing three simple things:


1.    detoxifying the body;

2.    strengthening the immune system; and

3.    nourishing your cells.


This is true because the growth of mutated cells causes degenerative disease including cancer and the aging process.


A strong lymphatic system or immune system eats up and destroys mutated cells before they can multiply into cancer growths, diseases and aging symptoms.


Healthy nourishment provides you with a healthy immune system and a healthy body.


Therefore, everything heals by doing at least one of three things;


1.    It detoxifies the body

2.    It builds the immune system

3.    It nourishes the body.


Be constantly aware of how you are doing these things.


Things that detoxify the body:



Things with strengthen the immune system:


  • Eating a wide variety of primarily organic fruits and vegetables

  • Prayer for healing

  • Being healed of past emotional traumas

  • Living in a spirit of faith, hope and love

  • Exercising

  • Taking organic whole food vitamins and minerals supplements

  • Using herbs wisely

  • Pycnogenol

  • Co-enzyme Q10


Things which Nourish the cells:


  • Eating a wide variety of primarily organic fruits and vegetables Breathing pure air

  • Taking organic whole food vitamins and minerals supplements

  • Drinking lots of pure water

  • Co-enzyme Q10


Dr. Max Gerson lists six steps in the development of cancer and or degenerative diseases in general.


See the table below to describe the difference between a healthy immune system versus and unhealthy immune system.


Healthy Immune System

Unhealthy Immune System (Cancer)

Maintenance of the normal metabolism, its regulations and products of hormones, enzymes, co-enzymes, etc.  absorption and elimination power


Slow intoxication and alteration of the whole body, especially the liver.

Maintaining the prevalence of the potassium (K) group in vital organs and Na-group (sodium) mainly outside in the fluids and some tissues.


Invasion of the Na group (sodium), loss of K-group (potassium), followed by tissue edema.

Keeping the positive electrical potentials of the cells high as the basis for energy and function, simultaneously as a defense against invasion of the Na-group and the formation of edema.


Lower electrical potentials in vital organs, ore edema, accumulation of poisons, loss of tension, tonus, reduce ed re-activation and oxidation power, dedifferentiation of some cells.

Maintenance of circulation, tonus, storage capacity, reserves

Cancer starts --- general poisoning increases, vital functions and energies decrease – cancer increases.


Re-activation power of vital substances, especially enzymes

Further destruction of the metabolism and liver parenchyma – cancer rules – is acting, spreading.


Defense and healing power

Loss of last defense – hepatic coma – death.



Most people would agree it is wise to provide our bodies with the purest water, purest air and purest food we possibly can.


I believe our bodies will operate best in this environment. Obviously, the more air, food, and water we consume which is contaminated with pollutants, the more our bodies must struggle to cleanse our mutated cells which become damaged by these pollutants.


When we take in a heavy load of toxins through food, water and air, we put an excessive cleansing responsibility on our body’s immune system. Our immune system is responsible to keep our insides free of damaged and mutated cancer cells before they begin multiplying.


The immune system can become overwhelmed, allowing cancer or other degenerative diseases to develop.  Or, our immune system can break down, and environmental sickness can be the result. 


Therefore, anything we can do to reduce the load of toxins we take will ultimately improve our health.


It is pretty well accepted in America that the toxic chemicals in cigarette smoke pollute our bodies with chemical poisons and cause them to break down with cancer. It is for the same reason that we also avoid many other toxic chemicals.


What the Immune System Does


The immune system is the body's defense against infectious organisms and other invaders.


Through a series of steps called the immune response, the immune system attacks organisms and substances that invade our systems and cause disease.


The immune system is made up of a network of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to protect the body.


The cells that are part of this defense system are white blood cells, or leukocytes. They come in two basic types (more on these below), which combine to seek out and destroy the organisms or substances that cause disease.


Leukocytes are produced or stored in many locations throughout the body, including the thymus, spleen, and bone marrow. For this reason, they are called the lymphoid organs.


There are also clumps of lymphoid tissue throughout the body, primarily in the form of lymph nodes that house the leukocytes.


The leukocytes circulate through the body between the organs and nodes by means of the lymphatic vessels.


Leukocytes can also circulate through the blood vessels. In this way, the immune system works in a coordinated manner to monitor the body for germs or substances that might cause problems.


The two basic types of leukocytes are:


1.    phagocytes, cells that chew up invading organisms

2.    lymphocytes, cells that allow the body to remember and recognize previous invaders and help the body destroy them.


A number of different cells are considered phagocytes. The most common type is the neutrophil, which primarily fights bacteria. If doctors are worried about a bacterial infection, they might order a blood test to see if a patient has an increased number of neutrophils triggered by the infection.


Other types of phagocytes have their own jobs to make sure that the body responds appropriately to a specific type of invader.


The organs of your immune system are positioned throughout your body.


They are called lymphoid organs because they are home to lymphocytes--the white blood cells that are key operatives of the immune system. Within these organs, the lymphocytes grow, develop, and are deployed.


Bone marrow, the soft tissue in the hollow center of bones, is the ultimate source of all blood cells, including the immune cells.


The thymus is an organ that lies behind the breastbone; lymphocytes known as T lymphocytes, or just T cells, mature there.


The spleen is a flattened organ at the upper left of the abdomen. Like the lymph nodes, the spleen contains specialized compartments where immune cells gather and confront antigens.


In addition to these organs, clumps of lymphoid tissue are found in many parts of the body, especially in the linings of the digestive tract and the airways and lungs--gateways to the body. These tissues include the tonsils, adenoids, and appendix.


The organs of your immune system are connected with one another and with other organs of the body by a network of lymphatic vessels.


Lymphocytes can travel throughout the body using the blood vessels. The cells can also travel through a system of lymphatic vessels that closely parallels the body's veins and arteries.


Cells and fluids are exchanged between blood and lymphatic vessels, enabling the lymphatic system to monitor the body for invading microbes.


The lymphatic vessels carry lymph, a clear fluid that bathes the body's tissues.


There are two kinds of lymphocytes:


  • B lymphocytes

  • T lymphocytes.


Lymphocytes start out in the bone marrow and either stays there and mature into B cells, or they leave for the thymus gland, where they mature into T cells.


B lymphocytes and T lymphocytes have separate jobs to do:


  • B lymphocytes are like the body's military intelligence system, seeking out their targets and sending defenses to lock onto them.


  • T cells are like the soldiers, destroying the invaders that the intelligence system has identified. Here's how it works.


    • Antigens are foreign substances that invade the body. When an antigen is detected, several types of cells work together to recognize and respond to it. These cells trigger the B lymphocytes to produce antibodies, specialized proteins that lock onto specific antigens. Antibodies and antigens fit together like a key and a lock.


    • Once the B lymphocytes have produced antibodies, these antibodies continue to exist in a person's body, so that if the same antigen is presented to the immune system again, the antibodies are already there to do their job.


    • That's why if someone gets sick with a certain disease, like chickenpox, that person typically doesn't get sick from it again.


    • This is also why we use immunizations to prevent getting certain diseases. The immunization introduces the body to the antigen in a way that doesn't make a person sick, but it does allow the body to produce antibodies that will then protect that person from future attack by the germ or substance that produces that particular disease.


Although antibodies can recognize an antigen and lock onto it, they are not capable of destroying it without help. That is the job of the T cells.


The T cells are part of the system that destroys antigens that have been tagged by antibodies or cells that have been infected or somehow changed. (There are actually T cells that are called "killer cells.") T cells are also involved in helping signal other cells (like phagocytes) to do their jobs.


Antibodies can also neutralize toxins (poisonous or damaging substances) produced by different organisms. Lastly, antibodies can activate a group of proteins called complement that are also part of the immune system. Complement assists in killing bacteria, viruses, or infected cells.


All of these specialized cells and parts of the immune system offer the body protection against disease including cancer. This protection is called immunity.


Things That Can Go Wrong With the Immune System


Disorders of the immune system can be broken down into four main categories:


1.    immunodeficiency disorders (primary or acquired)


2.    autoimmune disorders (in which the body's own immune system attacks its own tissue as foreign matter)


3.    allergic disorders (in which the immune system overreacts in response to an antigen)


4.    cancers of the immune system


I want to say it over and over again. The bottom line is that degenerative diseases including cancer and the ageing process itself can be slowed, halted, and even reversed by doing three simple things:


·        detoxifying the body

·        strengthening the immune system; and

·        nourishing your cells.


Strengthening the immune system involves


  • Eating a wide variety of primarily organic fruits and vegetables

  • Organic juicing

  • Detoxing

  • Prayer for healing

  • Being healed of past emotional traumas

  • Reducing stress

  • Rest

  • Living in a spirit of faith, hope and love

  • Exercising

  • Taking organic whole food vitamins and minerals supplements

  • Using herb wisely

  • Pycnogenol

  • Co-enzyme Q10


Begin taking steps to strengthen your immune system and you will discover that your body will begin a wonderful process of restoration.


This and more will be discussed in the e-book, “So Why Do You Get Cancer”.  The e-book encourages you to understand the causes of cancer and see what steps to take in restoring and healing your body.
