The Cancer Answer

by Leo Roy, M.D., N.D.

 

According to the way our minds have been con­ditioned, we believe there’s nothing that can be done for cancer except to kill the cancer cells and tumors.

We have been taught to see cancer as a formi­dable, mysterious, insidious disease — a diabolical enemy. We have been taught to accept that cancer is a force that has no face other than a tumor; that our body is ignorant and helpless; that there is noth­ing we as a patient can do; that our body has no wis­dom of its own in guiding us back to health.

We have been given a message: “Don’t think for yourself. Be a gentle and compliant soul. Whatever can be done, must be done for us by doctors and hospitals. Go along with every treatment that our sincere, good-hearted family physician, aided by the brilliant oncologist, has to offer.” Even if it kills us. (And it might!)

 

Medical Misguidance

Western medicine has maintained that cancer is an invasion of the body from inside by cells that have gone wild. Cancer cells are formed throughout life, but are normally detected and routinely de­stroyed by the immune system. Cancer will develop when this system fails. Treatment consists of efforts to remove or destroy cancerous cells through sur­gery, radiation or drugs.

Such ideas do not come from medical science or knowledge.

I no longer believe in the helplessness and inad­equacy the medical profession offers to its cancer patients. There are answers to our fears, anxieties, frustrations and suffering. Just understanding the na­ture of cancer, and understanding why and how it developed within the body, will lift the emotional burden from life and make the months ahead much easier to face.

There are five positive principles that form a ba­sic starting point. Read them carefully. Digest them. Learn to appreciate them. Keep these principles foremost in your beliefs. Then use them. They are powerful weapons of healing.

Cancer does not mean you have to die. It means you have to take your life in your own hands and care for it.
 

It is not possible for disease and health to co­exist in a body. If your total health is restored, your disease must disappear.
 

Your body knows infinitely more about healing itself than any scientist, doctor or healing pro­fessional. Only your body knows what it needs for healing. For the secret remedy, look to your body not to the ignorance of the past, not to books, not to someone else’s body or to remedies that were ben­eficial to, and effective for, somebody else. Don’t succumb to treatment which destroys tumors, but does nothing to get rid of the causes or rebuild re­sistance, healing and health.
 

Your body alone has the capacity to heal. Doc­tors don’t. Find out which of your body’s healing mechanisms have been compromised — what nutri­ents, enzymes, proteins, minerals, vitamins, oils and life-forces are missing. Provide your body with everything it needs. It is also essential to break down and eliminate any barriers to healing. Believe in your body’s ability to replace sick and dying cells with healthy cells. This is healing.
 

Free will is integral to human nature. Nothing can interfere or override this prerogative. If we don't want to take hold of our lives, no one can make us. Of course, when what is required for health and joy in life is depleted, destroyed or blocked, we may not want to live. That is the problem.

The ideas I offer come from three sources: re­search into personal experience, understanding the world of the living cell, and knowing many patients who experienced permanent cures and have subse­quently enjoyed years of health, free of disease.

Conquering cancer is achieved through enhanc­ing immunity and resistance to disease while find­ing and eliminating all possible causes that may have created health problems. I have also seen those less fortunate, who have not been blessed with to­tal cures. Yet, none of these people lived out the rest of their days with more than a minimum of distress, almost no pain and none of the tortures usually as­sociated with cancer.

 

We’re Poisoning Ourselves

From our parents and ancestors, and through the life stages — pregnancy, birth, childhood and adult­hood — we continually allow abnormal influences and forces into our lives and bodies. We pile stone upon stone until we have built our own tombstone. The overload breaks down the body’s protective and healing abilities until we finally succumb to the on­slaught of disease.

We constantly poison ourselves unconsciously, insidiously and daily. We prolong the stagnation and retention of food, year after year, through constipa­tion and inadequate elimination of body wastes and toxins. The toxic supersaturation of the body in­creases with each day that we eliminate less than what we have eaten.

Each one of the billions of cells that die every­day is a toxin — the equivalent of a micro-cadaver, a rotting carcass. To some degree, this process in­volves the poisoning of the body every single minute of the day.

Accept that your body, as healthy as it may feel, is continually battling these poisons.

Unless you detoxify and eliminate daily, there is no way that you can escape the effects of toxins. It can take up to two years to detoxify the body, espe­cially under the ecologically dangerous conditions many of us live in.

Every body needs diligent detoxification.

 

Understanding Detoxification

Any good health-restoring regimen will release a flood of toxins into the blood and body fluids. Toxic substances are transported by the blood di­rectly to the liver. The liver is the main detoxifying organ equipped to handle, neutralize and eliminate most body poisons. As long as the liver is healthy and fulfilling its multitude of tasks, healing can progress. Essential in supporting the liver’s function are the actions of the other organs of detoxification: colon, kidneys, lungs, skin and the lymphatic sys­tem.

It is possible to heal too fast — to eliminate too many body poisons at any one time. Going on pro­longed fasts or taking large amounts of detoxifying remedies can free too many stored poisons too quickly. These poisons then overload and swell the liver — like sewage “plugging up a sponge.” They can saturate and exhaust the liver and the organs of detoxification and elimination. This excessive detoxification will leave you feeling as if your treat­ment is acting adversely. You may fear that your treatment is doing you harm. Not really. Your body is merely ridding itself of toxins at a rate faster than your organs of detoxification and elimination can handle. What you experience at such times is a toxin “hangover.” This is a normal process, like the body ridding itself of alcohol after a horrible binge. Take enemas repeatedly, often enough to completely eliminate the poisons that cause the “hangover.” You may need 5 or 10 enemas or whatever it takes for relief.

 

Essential Enzymes

There are over 25 million cells dying every minute — one and a half billion every hour — and over 36 billion dead cells to handle every day. The cell cadavers are made up of dead, burned-out, cell biochemicals. The process of cell disintegration is the same as a cadaver rotting. The body must handle and neutralize every cell molecule, flushing them out through its organs of elimination. If not, the cell cadavers will form toxic wastes — the accumulation of harmful substances.

The breaking down of all cell substances is done by enzymes. There are hundreds of thousands of en­zymes in the body performing an equal number of functions. There are enzymes which digest all cells and foods. They are manufactured in and by the stomach and the pancreas. Enzymes will digest cells everywhere in the body. They attack and destroy all cells that are worn out, dying and abnormal. They destroy every cell that is not a part of our healthy body structure; amazingly enough, enzymes “know” to attack only these.

The enzymes are not destroyed in this process, nor will they touch the normal cells.

Enzymes are essential in the fight against can­cer. Cancer cells are denatured enough that they are no longer recognizable as part of our bodies. They, too, fall under the axe of the digestive enzymes. But not always. Sometimes abnormal cells accumulate and form tumors.

Maintaining a vibrant immune system and good host resistance will seek out these abnormal cells as foreign substances and eliminate them.
