CANCER IS A DISEASE OF COMPROMISED IMMUNITY
“Cancer is a Disease of Compromised Immunity. Systemic Total Body Detoxification is a required cleansing process for a healthy life style and crucially necessary in order to increase the body’s immunity before, during and after any type of cancer treatment.”
Marcel M. Cohen, ME, P.Eng.,
Basics of the Immune System
The immune system is a system of many biological structures and processes within an organism that protects against disease.
To function properly, an immune system must be able to recognize the native cells of its host as ‘self’, and therefore, distinguish them from all abnormal or foreign cells and structures which gain access to, or are present in the body, in order to stage appropriate defensive maneuvers. These foreign structures include all types of infecting pathogens as well as cancerous tumor cells.
The immune system comprises multiple organs, including the spleen, bone marrow, and thymus. However, elements of the immune system are present in all tissues, such as Kupffer cells (immobilized macrophages) which line the sinusoids of the liver, or Langerhans cells, immune cells interspersed among the keratinocytes of the skin.
The immune system consists of many different types of cells:
- Natural killer cells
- Dendritic cells
- Monocytes /Macrophages
- Innate lymphoid cells
- Red blood cells
There are 2 different type of immunity:
- Innate Immunity (non-specific immunity)
- Adaptive Immunity (specific or acquired immunity)
Innate immunity involves a number of broad functions:
- Recruitment of immune cells to an infection site through production of chemical factors or mediators (cytokines) at the damage site
- The complement cascade is activated, which identifies pathogens, activates immune cells, promotes clearance of antibody complexes and dead cells
- Identifies and removes foreign substances in tissues, organs, lymph and blood, via specialized white blood cells
- Activated the adaptive immune system via the process of Antigen Presentation
- Acts as a physical barrier (epithelium) against infectious agents
Adaptive or acquired immunity takes advantage of the immune system’s ability to demonstrate memory once exposed to a pathogen which has specific identifying markers associated with it. Initial exposure will require a much longer period of time by your body to eliminate the invaders (approximately 4-8 days, or longer depending on the condition of the immune system and other factors). The second attempt by identical invading pathogens will involve much swifter processing by your immune system, and the host may not even know that there was an infection present. This is the basis behind the immunization process, and the properties of memory, which the adaptive aspect of the immune system possesses.
Optimizing the immune system is crucial and a must in maintaining a DISEASE FREE LONG LIFE. It is common knowledge that a weakened immune system leaves the host vulnerable to infection, and to other diseases including cancer. Cancer is a disease of Compromised Immunity.
An opportunistic infection is an infection caused by a pathogen which takes advantage of a host with a weakened or compromised immune system (or an altered microbiota, such as a diminished gut flora, post treatment with antibiotics). Many of these pathogens do not cause disease in a healthy host who has a normal immune system. Often, gut flora cannot be restored by the body to its prior levels before the use of antibiotics. Simply, antibiotics compromise body’s immunity. Prolonged use of antibiotics reduces the body’s inherent immunity as such increases the risk of cancer.
The same pattern can be described of tumor formation. Therefore, it can be restated, that an optimized (or amplified) immune system must be capable of destroying invading pathogens as well as suppressing the development of tumors in its host, and will continue to do so, as long as the health of the immune system is maintained.
So how do we optimize and maintain the health of our immune system?
We start with an aggressive detoxification process named “Rerum Detox Protocol” and we maintain a toxin free life style.
And especially we adopt Exitotoxins free life style which deteriorate our brains. For example at all cost we avoid Glutamate of MSG (Mono Sodium Glutamate) which destroys brain cells.
Detoxification is a set of processes which clears the body of accumulated, harmful chemicals and effects, which are broadly referred to as toxins. This is done by removing impurities from the blood in the liver, where toxins are taken, and processed for elimination. The body eliminates toxins through the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymph and skin. All six parts must perform impeccably to detox the body.
However, when this system is compromised, impurities aren’t properly filtered and will accumulate. Every cell in the body is adversely affected. Hence the start of compromising body’s immunity.
There are innumerable impurities found in food, water and air. Radiation and stress also have adverse effects. In food, many chemicals which we intend to consume, such as ethanol, are considered toxins, but there are other chemicals such as preservatives, dyes, flavorings, antibiotics, hormones, pesticides and various pollutants, which find their way into our bodies through the foods we consume, which must be considered as harsh toxins for the immunity.
Today, with more toxins in the environment than ever, it’s critical to detox, for symptoms such as:
- Unexplained fatigue
- Sluggish elimination
- Skin irritation
- Low-grade infections
- Periorbital puffiness (eye bags)
- Menstrual problems
- Mental confusion
A detox program can help to cleanse the body by:
- Resting the organs through fasting or drinking a strategic meal substitute
- Stimulating the liver to drive toxins from the body
- Promoting elimination through the intestines, kidneys, lungs and skin
- Improving circulation of blood
- Refueling the body with healthy nutrients
Nutritionists will recommend that we should detox at least once a year. At Rerum North America, we recommend that many elements of a strategic detox plan remain in effect daily. However, caution should be exercised in the case of nursing mothers, children, and patients with certain diseases.
How do you start detoxification?
First, lighten your toxin load. Try to Eliminate:
- Refined sugars
- Processed foods
- Carbohydrates (during ketogenic diet cycle);
These act as toxins in the body and are obstacles to your healing process. Also, eliminate or minimize use of chemical-based household cleaners (especially in aerosol format).
Another deterrent to good health is stress, which triggers your body to release stress hormones into your system. In large amounts they create toxins, slow down detox enzymes in the liver, and suppress the immune system. Exercise, yoga and meditation are simple and effective ways to relieve stress.
So, you have started by limiting the ingestion of ‘social toxins’, and you have taken steps to reduce stress, and the damage which occurs as a result. Let’s move onto the issue of detoxifying the body and optimizing the immune system.
For Our Cancer patients and those who are not diagnosed with any disease but interested in Disease Free Long Life we provide an Intensive Detox Process based on a demanding schedule; that is a continuous detox process lasting three weeks, every day of the week, five-hour long detox sessions, lasting actually until the body is entirely free of toxins. This is based on our Proprietary Rerum Detox Protocol and Rerum Detox Processes. For more information, submit your information blow.
In addition, for our Cancer patients and those who are not diagnosed with any disease and interested in Disease Free Long Life we provide a Proprietary Diet Process based on Rerum Ketogenic Diet.
As well we provide proprietary Detoxification process, Modified Ketogenic Diet, Rerum Dietary Supplement, Specialized Probiotics and Supplements for couples planning to have a family.
What follows are generic Detoxification Processes One can follow.
- Exercise – cardio, resistance training, jump-roping are all good. They increase sweat to remove toxins, and reduce stress, thereby improving immune strength.
Exercise is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. Exercising helps to reduce body fat, and to get rid of toxins through perspiration. Exercise also helps with digestion, circulation, organ health and function.
If you opt to make exercise a regular function in your life, then you can assist the body in the cleansing process on a regular basis. So sweat it out at the gym, not only because it makes you feel good and releases the best.
A good form of exercise, helps to meditate and reduces stress, which results in a decrease in the release of some harmful hormones, such as cortisol, which is a corticosteroid produced in the adrenal cortex. Cortisol is released in response to stress and /or low blood-glucose concentration. It increases blood sugars through gluconeogenesis, a metabolic pathway which generates glucose from non-carbohydrate substrates (some amino acids, glycerol, lactate, pyruvate). Cortisol also suppresses the immune system, and decreases bone mineralization.
Exercise and a positive general outlook are 2 methods of minimizing stress and the presence of stress hormones in the blood. Stress can result in weight gain, poorly functioning immune system which increases risk of infections, cancer and other illnesses, and a complete lack of energy.
- Detox drink recipes can assist in ridding your body of toxins and bringing it back into healthy balance. There are many of these, such as:
Lemon consists of ascorbic acid, vitamin C, elevates glutathione and assists in the cleansing process.
2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice, 2 teaspoons of pure maple syrup and one-tenth teaspoon of cayenne pepper in 8 ounces of water.
Dandelions are a great source of vitamin A, potassium, iron and calcium. Dandelion detox tea is a diuretic that will eliminate bodily toxins through your liver and kidneys.
4 tablespoons of fresh dandelion per cups of boiling water. Let brew 10 min.
According to Mayo Clinic, there is some evidence to suggest that drinking cranberry juice may help prevent urinary tract infections and ulcers in healthy individuals. Cranberry juice also contains vitamin C, manganese and antioxidants. Cranberry juice is a commonly used for detoxification.
These are only a few example of the hundreds of drinks which can represent a one-meal substitute during a detox program. Most of the detox elements outlined, can be maintained on a daily basis. By optimizing the removal of wastes and management of stress on a day to day basis, the immune system strength will be maximized.
Here are some recommendations to ensure that, moving forward, your toxins will not get out of control:
- Use organic foods:
Minimizes the ingestion of pesticides, preservatives, antibiotics, hormones, and other toxins.
- Have regular, intense massages:
It is a good way of detoxifying the body, an intense deep tissue massage that focuses greatly on the pressure points within the body.
- Drink far more water:
2-3 liters per day at minimum, will flush out your system naturally and routinely, contributing to clearer skin, properly functioning organs, and a more effective circulatory, respiratory, and digestive system.
- Replace coffee with green tea:
A little caffeine is okay, and green tea contains important antioxidants that our body needs. It helps to naturally detoxify and supplies some important anti-cancer factors.
Acupuncture helps to naturally heal many health problems, while also helping you to cleanse blockages of toxins in the body. This holistic approach been around for centuries and is an excellent cleansing method.
- Eat more fiber:
Fiber chelates bile, which is a substance produced by your liver, which is stored in the gallbladder until needed. Bile is an emulsifier for rich, fatty food. Removal if bile in the GI tract by dietary fiber, forces your liver to extract cholesterol from the blood (reduces blood cholesterol levels) to replace the lost bile. Fiber also pulls water from the blood stream (reduces blood volume and thus blood pressure) and provides nutrients for gut flora in the colon. These bacteria digest the nutrients to produce small chain fatty acids which help to reduce polyp development in the colon, and therefore, decrease the risk of colorectal cancer. Fiber also helps to loosen toxins and solids which remain in the GI tract. It allows rapid elimination, again reducing the risk of toxic reactions with the endothelium of the gut, and the risk of cancer.
- Sufficient sleep:
Without proper sleep you can gain weight, you will have a compromised immune system, and of course you lack natural energy. The body wears down, and you get sick more easily.
- Avoid obvious environmental toxins:
Avoid smog, diminished air quality, second hand smoke and industrial fumes as much as possible.
- Turn to probiotics to get rid of the bad bacteria and welcome in the good This complements fiber to ensure the content of flora is optimal, and the bad microbes are eradicated.
- Learn to incorporate superfoods into each meal:
Superfoods contain important nutrients and antioxidants which our bodies need to fight off infections, cancers and harmful toxins and substances that may compromise our immune system and our overall health.
Superfoods are a delicious and nutritious group of foods including foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants, like:
Salmon, Tuna, Avocado, Walnuts, Almonds, Olive Oil, Flax Seeds, Blueberries, Raspberries, Spinach, Kale, Tomatoes
Some of the herbs that offer great cleansing in the body include: Dandelion, Turmeric, Milk Thistle, Cypress, Hydrangea Root, Gravel Root, Garlic, Onion, basil
- Cut out simple carbohydrates, white sugar and flour:
Rice, pasta, bread, potatoes and any simple sugar need to be out now! Consequences of starches and simple sugars are a major component of the very toxins that build up in your digestive system, for which detoxification is required.
- Turn to home remedies to treat illness rather than antibiotics:
Antibiotics contribute to toxins in the body, kills off normal flora and weakens the immune system, which will pave the way for opportunistic pathogens and drug resistant organisms to enter your gut, proliferate, and produce toxins.
- Use ginger, garlic, other natural herbs which will speed up recovery by enhancing natural defense mechanisms.
Garlic contains multiple active compounds and minerals which have a positive effect on the body. Those will only be listed here – please follow the in-depth discussion on Garlic and Its Properties – For a Disease Free Long Life, which will follow in 2016.
Garlic contains innumerable active ingredients and trace minerals:
Allicin, Allicinase, Ajoene, Diallyl disulphide, S-Allylcysteine, Thiacremonone, Copper, Iron, Zinc, Tin, Calcium, Manganese, Aluminium, Germanium, Selenium,
Therefore, garlic exhibits many properties:
Natural antibiotic properties; Anti-viral and anti-fungal; Anti-cancer, especially stomach, colon, esophageal, pancreatic and breast cancers; Prevents cancer-causing agents from binding to cells in the human breast; Produces h2s (hydrogen sulfide) in the body which attacks breast, prostate and colon cancers; 12% reduction in blood cholesterol levels; Detoxifies the body by stimulating the liver to produce more detox enzymes; Strengthens the immune system; An effective anticoagulant; Reduces allergic airway inflammation; Has anti-arthritic properties; Reduces the inflammatory aspects of obesity
- Other natural foods which provide natural infection control:
- Coconut oil – MCT has antibacterial properties
- Ginger – contains gingerol, which fights infections in the mouth mainly
