Searching for the Root Causes of Cancer

Biochemist Dr. Otto Warburg received the Nobel Prize in Physiology in 1931 for his pioneering research on the potential origins of cancer. Dr. Warburg was director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute (now Max Planck Institute) for Cell Physiology in Berlin. He investigated the metabolism of tumors and the respiration of cells, particularly cancer cells. Below are some quotes from Dr. Warburg during medical lectures in which he was the keynote speaker:

"Cancerous tissues are acidic, whereas healthy tissues are alkaline. Water splits into H+ and OH- ions. If there is an excess of H+ ions, it is acidic; if there is an excess of OH- ions, then it is alkaline."

"All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen - a rule without exception."

"Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous."

In his work, The Metabolism of Tumours, Dr. Warburg demonstrated that all forms of cancer are characterized by two basic conditions: acidosis (a condition in which there is too much acid in the body fluids) and hypoxia (lack of oxygen). Lack of oxygen and acidosis are two sides of the same coin: where you have one, you have the other.

Dr. Warburg hypothesized that the primary cause of cancer is oxygen deficiency (brought about by toxemia). He discovered that cancer cells are anaerobic (do not breathe oxygen) and cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen.

You Need Different Water

For years clients have been asking me what water to use in their enemas, and until now I've resisted an in-depth answer, simply recommending reverse osmosis water or saying that whatever water is accessible is fine. The truth of the matter is that there is a lot of information to sort through to really understand what constitutes quality drinking water and quality colon cleanse water.

I want to apologize to all my customers who have asked about drinking water, water filtration, and water for the colon cleanse, and received incomplete or inaccurate advice from me. The water you drink and the water you use in your colon is crucial to your optimal health, and I am now prepared to speak to this issue in more detail.

In May of 2014 some clients in California approached me about Enagic's Kangen Water Ionizers, which led me to research issues of water quality in more depth. Now, after 8 months of closer study, I am in shock to discover that almost all of us are deeply settling in terms of water. We all know good water is crucial to good health, yet most of us truly aren't locating quality water. Think of the organics movement in the USA 40 years ago! Kangen water is as close as most of us will get to "organic" water at this time in history. I can't recommend it enough for drinking and for cleansing the colon.

In Japan, water ionizers are used in the majority of homes. In the US, current usage is much, much lower. Think about sharing this therapeutic water with your local community. Also we need to get this water into local businesses like cooperatives, Whole Foods, chiropractic offices, etc. All of these places may be unaware that they are contributing to the "water problem" by not offering truly healthy water. For instance, Madison's Willy Street Cooperative offers two types of water that aren't optimal for human use: bottled water and reverse osmosis water. Plastic water bottles pollute the planet and much of bottled water is no healthier than tap water, often at 2,000 times the cost. Reverse osmosis water is "pure" water, but is also dead water. In other words, reverse osmosis water is water without healthy minerals, without antioxidants, and without the ability to optimally hydrate.

You can also use one type of Kangen water for cleaning your enema equipment without the use of detergents. Acidic water, which is one of the 5 waters created by Kangen Water Ionizers, is used in hospitals in Japan as a sterilizer for surgical equipment. The water can be used this way because the pH value of the water is 2.5 or less, an acidity which kills germs and viruses.

Learn more about the healing benefits of Kangen water

Kangen Water® is delicious water created from Enagic's innovative water technology. Not only does this device filter your tap water, but it also produces ionized alkaline and acidic waters through electrolysis. These waters are optimal when taking enemas and for optimal hydration.

When taking enemas, the type of water you use is crucial.

The Optimal Health Network now offers this powerful Enagic water-ionizing machine, which produces up to 5 different types of water. You will be amazed at the versatility of this remarkable, cutting-edge product.

TYPES OF WATER:

Kangen Water® (pH 8.5 - 9.5)

Kangen water at 9.0 is optimal to use for preparing the coffee enema to balance out the natural acidity of coffee.

Additionally, this water is perfect for drinking, cooking, gardening, and so much more! Drink a minimum of a 1/2 ounce of Kangen water for each pound of body weight. Even more water is better for optimal health. Do you want to take our water challenge? Drink 100-120 ounces of Kangen water by drinking 1/2 cup every 30 minutes.

Neutral Water (pH 7.0)

Free of chlorine, rust, and cloudiness, neutral water is ideal for taking the first two enemas in the enema series.

Slightly Acidic Water (pH 4.0 - 6.0)

Slightly acidic water is recognized for its astringent effects. It is terrific to use for gentle cleaning, hygienic, and beauty care, and even keeping frozen food full of flavor!

Strong Acidic Water (pH 2.5)

This water has excellent cleaning properties. Use strong acidic water to sanitize kitchen utensils and countertops to keep areas safe and clean.

The Enema Series and Healing


Testimonial:
"I was diagnosed with Lyme disease in early 2014. Severe headaches plague me most mornings upon waking. How grateful I am for discovering Optimal Health and Kristina's protocol for colon cleansing through the 3-enema series. I devote the first 2 hours of every day to this. After that, life is tolerable. I even have some pretty good days with a lot of energy and no pain. Thanks, Kristina, you're a life saver!" ~ Julie H.

There are many ways to heal. And, there are many ways to heal from any individual set of symptoms, which is what diseases like Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, prostatitis, and irritable bowel syndrome are – a set of symptoms that commonly occur together and are thus labeled as a disease state in order to help the medical community come up with solutions for healing.

enema soap
As Julie states, the Optimal Health Network's enema series is a way that one person is alleviating her symptoms called Lyme disease. We often hear stories like Julie's and it is these stories that, for us, truly back up the little science that has been done around the enema, the colon cleanse, and using therapeutics, such as essential oils, in the colon.

In this article, Butyrate-Induced Transcriptional Changes in Human Colonic Mucosa, published by PLOS ONE**, an international, peer-reviewed, non-profit online journal, researchers report that the enema is "a safe and reliable way to deliver a specific amount of substrate to the distal [descending/sigmoid] colon" and that "other techniques, such as oral intake of dietary fibers or encapsulated butyrate, do not allow to accurately target the distal colon." The study goes on to say that the enema was chosen as a delivery method of the butyrate intervention since "the incidence of carcinomas and diseases... of the colon is rising."

Due to science like the article above, and the healing stories of hundreds and hundreds of OHN clients over a 17-year period, we have developed products and enema protocols to deliver therapeutic substances such as butyrate (which is in our made-for-enema goat milk soaps) in order to optimize the health of the colon, as well as to help the body heal the myriad aches and pains and less-than-optimal functioning that we experience by simply being alive.

Here is the outline of another customer's therapeutic program:

Female
Age 61

Physical struggles:
  • Lyme disease diagnosis
  • Mold toxicity
  • Chronic pain
  • Bloating/gas
  • Chemical sensitivities
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Heartburn
  • Heart palpitations
  • Intense intermittent muscle pain since childhood

3-DAY SUPPOSITORY ROTATION:

Day 1: Melrose Essential Oil Blend, 5-6 drops

Day 2: ImmuPower Essential Oil Blend, 8-10 drops

Day 3: OHN Candida Essential Oil Blend, 8-10 drops

Note: You can make a variety of essential oil suppositories as essential oils are best used in rotation. In other words, alternate oils from day to day. For example, this client used Melrose one night, ImmuPower the next night, and OHN Candida Essential Oil Blend the third night. This cycle is then repeated as long as is needed.

This client uses a suppository tray to make her suppositories.


DAILY ENEMA SERIES:

This client also did a two-day rotation with her enema series to maximize the benefits and to avoid causing her body to sensitize to any single therapeutic.

Day One:
Day Two:
This client uses 3-Quart Silicone Easy Enema Kit with Flex Tip for her enema series


TOXIN BINDERS:

Take 5 to 10 Chlorophyll Complex™ perles at the start of your enema series each day.

Chlorophyll Complex™ binds toxins tightly. Once coffee stimulates your gallbladder to contract and release toxin-laden bile into the small intestine, you want something where the bile duct enters the intestine to bind the toxins so tightly they will not be reabsorbed through the intestinal wall. Take a handful (about 5 to 10 perles) of Standard Process's Chlorophyll Complex, timed to precede the start of the enema by about 30 minutes. To order Chlorophyll Complex, contact the Optimal Health Network.

If you have a moment, please share your own healing story with us, and with those around you. Health is the best gift we can give at any time of the year!

Meeting

Kathleen Westcott and Kristina Amelong have decided to share their healing journey in hopes that others may find their own healing. Of course, you know Kristina. To learn more about Kathleen, read her biography.

By Kathleen Westcott

Kristina and I met in a break-out group with the Thomas Hubel Transparent Communication teleconference series in February of 2014. There were meant to be three to four participants in these discussion groups; it turned out to be just the two of us. Our connection and resonance was immediate. We quickly stated our goals, reviewed our trauma history and proceeded to discover that we were a match in regard to listening and being heard by one another. Since that initial meeting, I have deepened my capacity to trust myself and others and my personal sense of self-regard has become effortlessly ferocious. I attribute this to the fact that in our exchanges, Kristina simply does not ever engage in interpreting, interrupting, analyzing, advising, correcting, or labeling. Kristina celebrates, with much aplomb, my own language and courage in speaking the truth! We have truly created a sanctuary space for one another in which we are held and respected; we do not violate or abandon each other in our conversations. The opportunity for taking risk, revealing myself and actually hearing myself, while listening deeply and while being listened to, feels unlimited.

This is the foundation that we established on the phone. Then just two weeks ago, we came together in person. Kristina traveled the distance from her home in Madison, Wisconsin to my home in the Arrowhead Region of Minnesota, the Boreal Forest. Kristina arrived Friday evening for dinner and departed Monday late morning for home. She drove eight hours each way!

Kristina resided in our tiny camper. In our kitchen, she unpacked an explosion of the healthiest food on the planet: fresh vegetables, kombucha, bacon, fresh blueberries, to which we added venison, more bacon, wild rice, frozen blueberries and raspberries, and much more! We were gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free with low carbs, and the best protein, for the whole of her visit.

Reading to each other, going for walks, preparing beautiful meals - this was our foundation, the container that held the movement of the Kind-Hearted Great Mystery as she moved through us, revealing herself through every manner of feeling, sensation, play of plant, light, water as rain, mist, and wild rushing river falls, color, smell AND technology! Not to mention the presence of my beloved grandson on all but one of the days.

Now I must tell you something, describe something to you, that is to me wondrous and blessed and the answer to a long-held question/inquiry for myself. Kristina and I go for a walk on her last morning here. It is an ordinary walk; we do not have a plan, an intention, a focus. We nearly return to the house, walking over a small railroad tie bridge that spans a trickle of a creek where the brush of red willow, high bush cranberry and alder hang dense and low to the water, creating a thin, cool surface just above the creek, where the light filtering through is dappled - as when light filters through a lace curtain. Quite suddenly Kristina becomes  aware of an insect that she sees clearly, and I am barely able to see.

"Have you ever seen this one? Look how delicate, how beautiful!"

She is drawn by this insect to leaves which are about shoulder-high, then leaves near her knees, then at the level of the bridge. Now she is on her knees, hanging over the bridge, her upper body suspended right there on the cool, light-filtered surface of the water as its slow trickle moves around large stones partially covered with moss.

"Look, there are so many! One, two, three, four, five, six..."

I walk away now, saying, "...seven, eight, nine..." in my head and reflecting on the pristine quality of that cool, light-filtered surface, on that first delicate bug almost not visible except when its many feet touch the water and create shadow. And, I notice the intimacy of the insects' conversation with Kristina. This is between her and them. I am sure of this.

I want to call her dog to come with me, to leave them be - dogs are not allowed in ceremony spaces. I want to ask her not to take out her camera. Yet, I surrender these thoughts, knowing that to do so could disrupt Kristina's attention/awareness and possibly snap her into her logical mind. "Why?" About 20 feet closer to home, Kristina's little dog joins me! We walk home together. I just can't wait to hear her report when she returns from the creek and the insects.

In the days that follow, after Kristina makes that long drive back to her home, what happened at the creek begins to reveal itself to me. She e-mails to say that on a walk in a park the next day she discovers that her perception of the trees and plants has shifted - it is not as she has ever experienced them. I attribute this to the bug people and to those moments of her being suspended above the water in a manner similar to how the bug people live there. Then it begins to sink in. So obvious, yet not so obvious.
For an entire lifetime, it has been a mystery to me. Why is it that my grandfather decided to "work" with me and not his other grandchildren? (There were many.) Why did he tell me those stories, take me into the woods, teach me to listen to other life forms - plants, rocks, water, animals, birds? Why did he celebrate the most simple interests and curiosities that I had, value my dreams, listen deeply to my child chatter while I made mud pies and turned sticks and stones into full-blown creatures of nature? Here in those moments with Kristina, I witnessed the natural world CHOOSE her, call out to her. And I witnessed Kristina HEAR them, the bug people. She heard them. Not for one moment did she doubt what she heard. She moved toward them, dropped into her inherently innocent nature, joined them in their innocence, their wisdom, their uninhibited capacity to be fully who they are - suspended beauty, fully present.

This is one of the most endearing moments I have witnessed: creatures bathed in love, bathed in mutual regard, Kristina's acknowledgement of kinship, her acceptance, her trust of the unknown, her no-fear response, no hesitation; she moved with instant willingness and intuition to drop the activity of the mind and follow, join, merge.

So, you see, there is this profound gift of witnessing Kristina engaged with a spirit being, soul to soul, essential nature to essential nature. There is also the gift of realizing that this is likely what informed my grandfather, leading to his "working" with me. Most likely he witnessed my own porous nature, my capacity to receive, to be imprinted by the mystery as it is embodied in the natural world, to listen, to trust, to follow.

The unconditional opening of my heart toward Kristina, of her heart opening to the natural world through this delicate insect timelessly revealed the unconditional opening of my grandfather's heart to me at a time when I could not have felt more unworthy, more unlovable, isolated, fragmented; yet, precisely that timing and those circumstances rendered me accessible.

And here, in this delicate insect, is a power propelling itself to spin, silently and continuously whirling, wings colliding into one another yet never altering the flow of its flight. Catching Kristina's awareness of these insects, with their unfathomable silence combined with the living power of their wings then gathering, resting on water and rock, to appear as ordinary mosquitoes when not in flight. This subtle, aerodynamic vitality reaches into and catches Kristina's awareness, accessing her in her vulnerable emotional unraveling.

Surely this must be how it works, with masterful dexterity: the Kind-Hearted Great Mystery embodied in the natural world finds us through the openings created in our vulnerability, our woundedness. The magnetism of LOVE, the central principle of natural law, finds us.

On rare occasions, we are witnessed by another human, being found!
