Learn How Metabolic Medicine Attacks Cancer Cells And Not Healthy Cells.
I’d like to talk about metabolic medicine and the approach to working with cancer. This is a very relevant and important concept to understand because the conventional modus operandi that the conventional way of working with cancer is a military approach. Basically what happens is that the doctor becomes the general, the tumor’s the enemy, the nurses and technicians are the soldiers and there’s a battle fought. And unfortunately, that battle is the human body, the battleground and so the collateral damage is what we see, which is absolutely tragic and most people die from the treatment.
The metabolic approach is different in that we use substances from nature, not synthetic, but from nature that challenge the cancer cells based on their metabolic limitations and capabilities. For example, when a cell becomes cancerous what happens is that it loses the ability to use oxygen. That’s a fundamental thing that happens in the mitochondria.
When it does happen then there’s no longer any oxygen coming in and then you’re not having what’s called oxidative byproducts. As a result, the cell down-regulates and stops producing antioxidant enzymes. If you put the cells in this situation where it needs those antioxidant enzymes and it doesn’t have them, they will die.
This is exactly the situation we want because healthy cells have those antioxidant enzymes. As an example, let’s look at vitamin C. It’s well documented by The National Institute of Health, The National Cancer Institute, and the FDA has published studies showing one of the things that happen with high dose intravenous Vitamin C is the production of peroxides and tissues. Cancer cells do not have catalase and superoxide dismutase so they cannot convert those peroxides into water and oxygen the way healthy cells do and they die. They’re basically targeted in a metabolic way rather than a military way.
Metabolic Medicine Attacks Cancer Cells In A Natural Way And Not With A Military Approach
And there are lots of different metabolic therapies that are based on botanicals or substances from nature. It’s important to remember that when we talk about traditional care, we’ve got to understand that traditional care is the ayurvedic physicians, it’s traditional Chinese physicians, it’s the American and European botanical physicians. This is traditional medicine. We often mistakenly say that about traditional chemotherapy.
Anything that’s done today by white coats and hospitals is not traditional; it’s conventional. Traditionally, humans were more aligned with nature, and we used natural substances. That just needs to be understood. So, when we use natural substances that the body can handle and the cancer cells can’t, we are metabolically challenging or metabolically dealing with cancer.
These are the interventions we like to use in what’s called “integrative oncology“, what’s called “alternative cancer care”, etc. It’s using this approach that is in line with nature and metabolically challenging the cancer cells and only the cancer cells while the healthy cells are thriving. Now there are other aspects to it metabolic medicine which I will discuss in future blog posts.
