What Is Cancer?

What Is Cancer?

Here’s a comprehensive answer to everyone’s question “What is Cancer”?

It is provided by our Internationally renowned cancer specialist Dr. Thomas Lodi, MD(H), FICT, DAARFM, CNS.

When cells lose 40-60% of their mitochondrial function, they must resort to the process of fermentation in order to produce energy or they will die.  Mitochondria are the organelles within cells that are designed to make energy from glucose and oxygen.

This is called, “oxidative phosphorylation” and it is very efficient since one glucose molecule can produce 38 ATP (energy molecules).  This high-efficiency process occurs because the energy in the oxygen molecule is combined with the energy in the glucose molecule.

Fermentation is a very archaic method that cells use (especially many microorganisms) to make energy and because oxygen is not involved in this process, one glucose molecule can only produce 2 ATP.

Once the cell must rely on fermentation to produce energy, this signals the DNA to turn on certain genes and turn off certain genes in order to accommodate this new metabolic requirement.  The genes that are turned on are called oncogenes.

What is Cancer, explained by Dr. Thomas Lodi

Oncogenes, therefore are not the cause but rather are the mechanism whereby the cell adapts to this new situation where oxygen cannot be used to make energy from glucose. Oncogenes are genes that previously were not expressed because they were not necessary but are now being expressed because they are necessary.

No matter where in the body these fermenting cells are located, they are all the same. The only differences between any cancer is where it begins (location) and the cell type.

Cells that begin in glands are called adenocarcinoma and those that begin in muscles or bones are called sarcomas, however, the same process is happening. There is no other difference.

Chronically fermenting cells are what are known as cancer cells
Cancer = Fermenting Cells
That’s all!
Nothing more and nothing less

Genes are turned on and off in order to accommodate the needs of the cell and those needs of the cell are determined by the environment in which the cell lives. That environment is the extracellular fluid that surrounds the cell. It is the fluid in which the cells live and swim.  

For example, if the extracellular fluid has too much glucose, the genes that produce insulin receptors are changed so that the cell becomes insulin resistant because the wisdom of the body knows that too much glucose will kill the cells.

Insulin resistance, therefore, is an example of how the DNA of the cells is signaled by the membrane (skin) of the cell to change and to adapt.

This is called homeostasis

How Do We Get Cancer?

Cancer is simply a cell that has lost its’ ability to produce energy normally. It cannot use oxygen and must ferment glucose (sugar) to stay alive. This chronically fermenting cell adapts its genetic expression and activities to accommodate this new metabolic requirement…that is cancer! Nothing more and nothing less.

How do we get cancer and get into this position where cancer develops?

When 40-60% of the mitochondria are inactivated or destroyed, fermentation becomes necessary.  So, any and all conditions that damage mitochondria or oxygen availability are what contribute to this development. 

What contributes to the damaging of the mitochondria or oxygen availability are any or all of the following. All toxins in food, air, and water. Ineffective waste removal including poor sleep habits, constipation, non-fibrous foods, and lack of exercise.

This also includes stress-induced hormonal and nervous system modifications. EMF radiation causes damage to mitochondria from all sources including microwaves, cell phones, Wi-Fi, etc.

Lifestyle, relationships, physical environment are all contributors.

How We Treat Cancer

We treat cancer by changing the body’s biochemistry through detoxification, diet, lymphatic work, exercise, sleeping properly, meditation, and hormone balancing. Additionally, we target and eliminate the cancer cells by putting them into a position where they cannot function, and this does absolutely no harm to healthy cells.

This is called metabolic therapies. Finally, we “wake up” and then enhance the immune system, particularly those parts of the immune system that kill cancer.

Dr. Thomas Lodi is a true believer in integrative medicine and its amazing positive effects on cancer.  He has educated thousands of doctors worldwide to follow his Stop Making Cancer philosophy. His motto: “Health is our greatest treasure; It must be guarded more preciously than gold”. Dr. Thomas Lodi pioneered what has now become the definitive route for those unsatisfied with the modern cancer treatment system.
