An interesting experiment was done some years ago at Ohio State Penitentiary. Volunteer convicts were purposely injected with cancer cells. The scientists wanted to see if they could promote cancer in an apparently healthy person. They found that those men who had a history of cancer, began to develop cancer again as a result of the implanted cancer cells. Tumors actively began to grow in these subjects and they had to be surgically removed from the convicts. Those results were not particularly surprising. What did come as a surprise to the researchers was that healthy prisoners, with no history of cancer did not develop cancer after the implantation of cancer cells. Within a few weeks every trace of cancer was gone. Their bodies apparently killed off all the cancer cells. A conclusion that could be drawn from this study is that the human body has the ability to destroy cancer cells within the body whether they are manufactured there are or introduced.
Next they did something even more interesting. In those patients who had fought off the cancer cells, they introduced more. Their thinking was that while the body had fought off the first “dose”, it was now weakened and more susceptible and perhaps they could grow a tumor in those individuals on the second try. To their surprise, the patients’ bodies got rid of the second group of cancer cells even faster than the first! The body was better at fighting cancer from the experience of having done it before.
There are a few important lessons that we can learn from this and we had better learn these lessons because despite the research and emphasis upon cancer detection and treatment, the disease is becoming more and more common. The first lesson is that the body has an inborn ability to resist cancer. Rather than developing treatments for cancer, like harmful radiation and powerful drugs that have many side effects, we should be trying to develop ways to boost people’s immunity and resistance to cancer. In actuality, the body’s immune system doesn’t need boosting.
It is perfect to begin with and its resistance is high enough to start with. Perhaps we need to remove interferences to its perfect expression. Most cancers develop late in life. Is that a coincidence or is it because we have spent a lifetime interfering with the body’s ability to be resistant to cancer and destroying the immune system? Maybe carcinogens, those substances we take into our body that supposedly cause cancer aren’t really “carcinogenic” or cancer-causing after all. Maybe they help break down the body’s inborn resistance to the disease. Possibly the greatest destroyers of the body’s resistance to disease are all the drugs and medications that people take.
Maybe vaccinations break down the body’s immune system by not giving it a chance to work as it should. Or perhaps it is something else or a number of things. Perhaps, it is an interference in the nerve system due to a vertebral subluxation that causes the glands and cells that produce the chemicals to kill cancer cells to not work properly.
Whatever it is, it is apparent that the cause comes from within. More than likely, it is a combination of a number of factors that lead to a breakdown in the body’s ability to attack and kill cancer cells when they occur. But rest assured that these factors are all within the body and treatment and cures that come from outside the body are not the answer. The answer is in staying healthy, and chiropractic should be an important part of any program to help you stay healthy
