The “Cure for Cancer”
“Cancer Cures” in the Pacific Sun dated May, 1994
Letter to the Editor From Da VidMD
In the 1930’s, Dr. Otto Warburg was awarded a Nobel Prize for discovering the “cure”
for cancer. He discovered that lack of oxygen (ischaemia) was responsible for the
transmutation of healthy cells into cancerous ones. On a biochemical level, the cure
for cancer is related to the proper oxygenation of cells, along with the efficient
elimination of toxins. Any or all processes which decrease the oxygen flow to tissues
and/or increase the build-up of toxins will, over a period of time, lead to cellular
degeneration... Dis-ease... Cancer and/or “Death”...
Speaking on a spiritual and/or psychological level, the root cause of all dis-ease
is fear (unaccommodated stress). Unaccommodated stress creates a decreased flow of
oxygen to the tissues; as well as the excessive build-up of free radicals, which
further serve to destroy the integrity of the cell. The wholistic medical model,
which defines wo/man as a psycho-physiological being, animated by spirit, sees cancer
as a classic auto-immune dis-ease.
I am in complete agreement with Mr. Lerner’s statement in THE PACIFIC SUN cover story
“Cancer Cures” (April, 1994) that one must differentiate “cure” from “healing.” As
Mr. Lerner clearly states, “Healing is essentially an inner process of becoming whole,
which has physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions.” In addition, he
states his belief, “that every human being must find their own unique path in their
efforts to recover from cancer.” As a wholistic Physician, and Medical Director of
The San Francisco Medical Research Foundation, I am of the understanding that aging,
degeneration and dis-ease are processes which through knowledge may be understood,
controlled and reversed... Healing is the art and/or science of positively effecting
a transformation of mind. Real healing leads to self-actualization, a spiritual experience,
which allows for the progressive expression and manifestation of our infinite potential.
In response to Mr. Lerner’s conclusions that, “ ...there is no clear cut cure for
cancer among the complementary therapies” we emphatically disagree. There is a wealth
of scientific material which clearly demonstrate, through various non- allopathic
approaches, that cancer is an eminently reversible and treatable condition. The same
is also true of AIDS, arthritis, heart dis-ease and other degenerative auto-immune
A recent book, “Alternative Medicine - The Definitive Guide” (Future Medicine Publishing,
Tiburon, CA) is a compilation of 350 leading edge physicians who clearly explain
their effective treatments for a wide variety of conditions, including cancer. Any
and all treatments which encourage hope, increase the oxygen capacity of the blood,
provide optimal nutrition to the cells and serve to eliminate excessive toxins from
the system are effective in improving the quality of life.
Dis-ease (cancer) is not something to be feared, but to be understood. The Good News
is that the cure for cancer already exists! It exists within ourselves (our cells).
It is my understanding that as we grow in the understanding of ourselves (our cells),
in our relationship with nature, in our appreciation and gratitude for life, and
in the implementation of safe, effective and inexpensive wholistic protocols, we
will individually and collectively realize and experience our Freedom from Dis-ease.
