Good evening everybody welcome to this particular webinar this evening on Do I Need to Detox In Order To Prevent and Treat Cancer. My name Dick Tom. I am the co-founder and medical director at the American Centre for Biological Medicine here in Scottsdale Arizona where we have a beautiful day.
What we’re going to be taking about this evening is a variety of things. This will be quite fast past .I already given you an overview of detoxification and the need for detoxification as its happening. So we are going to be talking about what is health , what is disease, why do people get sick , what is detoxification , what is cleansing , why would one need to detoxify , who should detoxify , how do we detoxify and what does the detoxification treatment plan look like .
So the origins of detoxification of course have been used for thousands of years, in fact fasting is one of the oldest therapeutic practise of medicine. Hippocrates the ancient great father of western medicine 500 BC recommended fasting as a way to improve health. It’s nothing that is new, it’s is something that has been recognised and certainly has been done for an extremely long period of time. Amravati medicine with roots in India is certainly a traditionally healing system also that utilises detoxification methods for the management of the chronic diseases.
Look at what health is and if we had the ability for interaction we would write down and say what do you think health means to you and we can look at what the World Health Organisation have said, what they have said this and this and this is not new it was written in 1948 and they really haven’t changed it since then It this state of complete physical , mental and social wellbeing and merely the absence of disease or infirmity .
What we need to look at is as is statute of balance. The word that has been coined is the words that is homeostasis. It was coined in the 1800s by a physician and we need to look at own what are the things in the body that we need to look at in order to try and maintain homeostasis. We are just going to briefly touch on 5 important principles that if they are not imbalanced it is going to be very difficult to be health. One is the correct concentration of oxygen and carbon dioxide. So obviously we are well aware of we breathe throughout the day 12- 15 times per minute day in, day out and as we are breathing in we are also breathing out and so we breathe in life giving oxygen and we breathe out carbon dioxide. If there is not a proper balance in that and in my experience many patients who have a chronic illness there is not, we are finding often in cancer patients that they have a lower than ideal oxygen concentration in their blood and as we try to increase their oxygen concentration they struggle because of circulatory problems and a number in of their type of issues.
That’s a very unfortunate thing because cancer cells do quite well in an anaerobic or low oxygen consecration and so one of the therapies for cancer is to increase the amount of oxygen that you can get in, at the same time trying to get out carbon dioxide. Many of you are probably familiar with the whole concept of alkaline acid base. We have water alkalises now with the idea to try and make the system a little closer to being alkaline. Many patients with chronic illness we find that their tissue h state ted to be more an impassive state and so that’s a function of trying to get the metabolism correctly.
So it’s one thing to have the correct diet but you have to get the food in. So what is the actual concentration and nutrients to gets to the cell where they are actually utilized and not just a function of eating them to see if they are able to get what we they need bit we also have to remove also the waste product. Everybody think of salt as being bad but we should really look at it as extremely important electrolytes.
The sodium in chloride are important electrolytes in your body as well as potassium and other electrolytes and any improper imbalance of those I am almost sure that you would have some type of variety signs or systems that are problematic. The of course we need to keep the proper volume of fluid and pressure within our system otherwise swell up or otherwise we get very thin. These are the internal aspects when we are looking at the internal components of homeostasis.
Now we look at health therefore as this continuous balancing act. What you have inherited from your parents as a component that relates to it. The lifestyle that we have will it relate to it which of course relates to what you eat , what you do and the job that you do and how much sleep you get and how water you drink and those are both interplayed by something called epigenetics which we touch on in just a sec. In contrast to what is health we can ask what is a disease and if we break the word up into two it simple is di-ease. It is a dis-ease at any level, not just the physical level. it can be an emotional , mental , spiritual or the physical level of course and verse health which is a continuous balance unfortunately dis-ease is a continuous imbalance and the body is never quite able to balance out the important factors.
We can look at and we often do at our patient population and ask when does a chronic disease start? You know people might say I have end sic for weeks m, months in some cases they may say years. Most people don’t realise that most chronic disease however starts a very long time ago. In fact we now have the knowledge that the chronic disease starts at pre conception from an energetic imbalance and this obviously occurs long before there is any detectable signs or symptoms. A couple of years ago Time Magazine published an article, Why Your DA Isn’t Your Destiny. We used think that what we know about genetics is everything and if you were fortunate enough to have parents who live through 100 years old the likelihood that you could live through a 100 was much better than if your parents didn’t like to that age , in fact may have died much more prematurely of some type of a chronic illness.
In fact we knew know that that so not necessarily true and then time published this one a couple of years ago with the idea that the pregnancy itself has an impact on the rest of your life which means it’s not just about mom it’s also how much does dad play a role in this aspect . Then news week published this in 2010 The Sins of Your Grandfathers: What happens In Vegas Can Affect Your Offspring and in fact we know that’s true because of this whole idea of epigenetics and there’s a pretty big study done in Europe a number of years ago and just looking at one factor only and that’s the birth weight . Low birth rate for a full term pregnancy basically by the time the person grows up and gets to their 7th decade of life , without any other risk factors, we don’t talk about cholesterol , we don’t have to about what they have to eat , we don’t have to talk about their blood pressure just the fact that they were low . Low meaning less than 5.5 pounds they have a 2-3 times increase risk of cardio vascular disease.
The same can be said for cancer, specifically breast cancer. It’s know that Lowe birth weight girls below 5.5 pounds or alternatively high birth weight about 8.5 pounds have a n increase risk of breast cancer later on in their lives. So birth weight have a great deal to do with it. We have this idea that problems start long ago as an energetic problem , eventually they may show up as a functional problem when you go to your doctor and he says look we don’t find anything wrong and everything seems ok but yet you have these symptoms and if you await long enough you end up with this regional or something we can find on a lab test over all .
This is the whole idea of epigenetics that we are able to show and prove that what happens as your cells are dividing , as your genes are replicating , what is going on can have a huge impact on what happens later on line life including your future generations . This particular research was done in Penn State in 2000-20011 where they observed poor childhood health increase the morbidity later on in life of having cancer, lung diseases , cardio vascular conditions and arthritis . So it is indeed true that the health of a child pretty much determines what type of conditions that they are going to have later in life . So we should ask why somebody get ill. We can look at a number of common ones and I have asked this question in enough presentations and seminars that I have done over the years so I have sort of collected this bit of information . Some people would say of course the body is breaking down like a cavity or just [Inaudible] or we get an obstruction , a kidney stone , that is obviously very painful or blocked arteries , they are well known to cause strokes and heart disease and injury of some form having motor vehicle accidents certainly and an imbalance of hormones, too much , too little and not enough of the right one .
Malnutrition plays a role. One of the most common ones that people are familiar with are of course microbes. Particcualr viruses. We are just going through the flu season so we hear a lot about flu and clods and that kind of things. Anybody who has young children in day care invariably they find that the child is not in day care for too long and they will have a an ear ach or they have a cold or runny nose or they have diahorrea as these organisms get past around and then the one we are going to talk about is toxins themselves and then it is now known that stress pretty much contributes , there is a contributing hector to virtually all types of chronic diseases and then of course we have the life style choices that people will make that can be a problem , When they will say bite are they really the cause or are they just a trigger of what the problems is .
