“No doctor has ever healed anyone of anything in the history of the world. The human immune system heals. And that’s the only thing that heals.” – Bob Wright, Author, Researcher, American Anti-Cancer Institute in the Truth About Cancer video
Whether a cancer patient is treated with conventional or alternative methods, the immune system is what ultimately heals cancer and allows the patient to remain in remission or cancer-free. It’s not surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy. It’s the immune system.
Last fall, my friend Ty Bollinger interviewed a number of prestigious, expertly-trained cancer physicians and scientists who all recognize that the only way to prevent and heal cancer is to start with the immune system. You can hear what these physicians and scientists have to say in Ty’s The Quest for the Cures…Continued Episode 2 video, which focuses on the immune system.
I encourage you to watch this video to learn more about how enhancing the immune system is key to the success of any cancer treatment plan. You will hear testimony from me as well as many experts including: Bob Wright; Ben Johnson, MD, NMD, DO; Sunil Pai, MD; David Brownstein, MD; Patrick Quillin, PhD, RD, CNS; Veronique Desaulniers, MD; Chris Wark; and more.
The Ultimate Protector
The immune system is our body’s super hero. It takes care of colds, flus, cancer, and everything in between. A normal, healthy immune system mounts an attack on viruses and bacteria with fever and inflammation. It also regularly keeps cells that become cancerous in check. But when the immune system is compromised, those normal reactions are less effective or not present at all.
“The immune system is powerful. It’s the first line of defense against cancer cells… 80 percent of your immune system is in the mucosal lining of your intestinal track so if you don’t have a healthy intestinal system and are feeding yourself a lot of junk… the Sad American Diet… then your immune system is going to be compromised.” – Veronique Desaulniers, MD, Truth About Cancer video
Many years ago, when I first recognized that cancer was a “disease of the immune system,” it changed how I approached treating it. Personally, I have never evaluated a cancer patient who did not also have a compromised immune system. This is why Hope4Cancer’s treatment protocols are focused on repairing and stimulating the immune system as well as targeting cancer cells.
I take note when I hear new patients tell me they “never get sick.” In fact, many report that they have not had a cold or flu in years. While that sounds like they are healthy, it’s actually a sign that their immune systems are not functioning — allowing cancer cells to grow unabated. Their defenses are down.
“Every cancer patient has a compromised immune system. Patients will not survive if their immune system is not stimulated.” – Ben Johnson, MD, NMD, DO, Truth About Cancer video
Role of Cancer Stem Cells
We know that in 1 cubic centimeter of a cancer mass, there are approximately 1 billion cancer cells. And of all those cancer cells, only 1 percent are cancer stem cells, with the other 99 percent being non-stem cells. This is important to understand because cancer stem cells reproduce themselves and sustain cancer, much as normal stem cells renew and sustain our organs and tissues. Non-stem cells cannot sustain an attack on our bodies over the long-term nor can they survive in the bloodstream to spread cancer to other areas of the body. Only cancer stem cells can spread cancer.
Yet conventional therapies like radiation and chemotherapy are only able to target the non-stem cells, which form the bulk of the cancerous tumors we see. This form of eradication can be quite effective at reducing a tumor size, but it’s not effective against cancer stem cells.
The irony is that when cancer patients see a reduction or perhaps elimination in the size of their tumor with conventional therapies, they are led to believe that they have gotten rid of the cancer. But we know that unless the immune system is stimulated, the cancer stem cells go on living. In many cases, they become more active and aggressive, leading to recurrence and metastases.
The further irony is that when patients are treated with chemotherapy and radiation, their immune systems are further suppressed. This gives cancer stem cells an opportunity to continue their work. Plus, these types of cancer cells are really good at hiding from the immune system, especially when it is compromised.
The good news is that there are many ways to enhance the immune system and eradicate those cancer stem cells. Our Sono-Photo Dynamic Therapy, and Hyperthermia destroy cancer cells, but at the same time have a secondary effect of stimulating the attention of the immune system. Our AARSOTA therapy is another immune booster, as is our nutritional system. We are constantly searching for natural substances in our nutritional program that have been shown to attack cancer stem cells and bolster the immune system, such as green tea extract and ellagic acid in raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries.
“Nutrition gives your immune system the fire power it needs to keep you well. Without nutrition, you are fighting with no weapons. Without your immune system, you are fighting with no army. Chemotherapy destroys your army – your immune system.“ — Chris Wark, Truth About Cancer video
Healing Without Compromising
At Hope4Cancer, we help our patients restore their immune systems so that their bodies can heal their cancer. Our non-toxic therapies target cancer cells and enhance the immune system, unlike chemotherapy and radiation. We know that if the immune system isn’t an active participant in ridding the body of cancer stem cells and non-stem cells, we have little chance of helping our cancer patients heal.
