The Cancer Answer
by Leo Roy,
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.
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.
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!)
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.
ideas do not come from medical science or knowledge.
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.
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
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
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
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.
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

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

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
