The conventional position is that cancer cells are abnormal cells that grow and divide uncontrollably. How does that mesh with NH’s position that cancer is nothing more than toxic waste safely enveloped by the body in a protective sac?
The medical industry takes a wide range of symptoms and labels all of them as cancer. They do not delineate between different symptoms or the progression of the condition other than to say that Cancer is in stages 1-4. In Natural Hygiene or Life Science, the medical diagnosis of cancer falls into both the sixth stage of disease and the seventh stage of disease depending on the exact conditions. The sixth stage is the body putting the toxic material into a specific area, as opposed to it being circulated around the body.
I would clarify that “toxic waste safely enveloped by the body in a protective sac” is not quite an accurate description of how natural hygiene explains cancer. The backlog of waste is never safe for the tissues. It remains problematic until the body has been freed of it. However, the body isolates that material in one area to protect the rest of the cells in the body from the toxic materials. This is what I mean when I say the body is intelligently encapsulating the waste. Not that the material is safe, but the body is making the best of a bad situation by isolating the materials in one area. The cells in that localized area though are continuing to be injured. If the causes of disease are not removed the area will continue to grow and spread as the amount of waste in the system continues to grow. Eventually, this will result in the failure of the person to survive the toxic conditions present in their body.
Natural Hygiene agrees with medicine that cancer cells are abnormal cells and at some point what the medical industry calls Cancer will progress to a state where the individual cells grow and divide uncontrollably. However, the majority of Cancer diagnoses will fall in Stage 6 of disease, induration, rather than stage 7. In stage 6, the body creates tumorous tissue (scar tissue) to bridge the lost tissue which occurs in Stage 5 ulceration and encapsulates the poisonous materials that destroy the tissue. The ulcer (stage 5) and the toxic material in that area are encapsulated by the hardening of the tissue around them.
If at this point the causes of disease are not remedied then the body will enter Stage 7, Cancer, where body vitality is at a very low energy, cells are no longer under the control of the body’s master control system and the cells begin to multiply and grow abnormally.
This is due to 2 malfunctions occurring in the cell. In normal cells, there is a process called contact inhibition, whereby the normal cell continues to grow until it touches or comes in contact with the neighboring cell, at which point its growth stops. In a cancerous cell, the conditions surrounding the cell cause malfunction that results in the contact inhibition being faulty and the cell continues to grow past the point of contact.
The second malfunction is in the lifespan of a cell. In a normal cell, there is a limited lifespan of the cell and when the cell is no longer functioning optimally the cell is recycled.
“…normal cell divides in two at a constant rate, then the two daughter cells into four, and so on, but along the road of reproduction some of the cells die at a constant rate equal to the rate of reproduction. Balance is therefore maintained. But not so for cancer cells. They do not have a finite life span. Nor do they die in the same proportion as those that reproduce.” – T.C. Fry, Life Science Course, Lesson 75
Natural hygiene recognizes that the abnormally growing and multiplying cancer cell has reverted to a simpler form and become disconnected from the network of cells. In a normal healthy body, all cells are coordinating and working together for the greater organism. In an abnormal cell, the conditions surrounding the cell are so toxic that the cell can no longer operate in coordination with other cells. Its functions then become simplified to the basic survival of the individual cell, as opposed to the survival of the entire body. The cell focuses only on its own needs instead of being tied to the other cells and coordinating its actions.
Where natural hygiene diverges with medicine is in how we respond to this information and what steps are taken to remedy the malfunction. Medicine treats its various collections of symptoms as unique, separate, and individual diseases. Natural hygiene recognizes that disease is a progressive condition, starting with the first cries of discomfort of the infant, building into the first colds the child experiences, and progressing steadily over years and decades as we fail to provide for the needs of the body and fail to allow the body adequate energy and materials to maintain its internal conditions.
Medicine says, the cancer cell is a virus that is attacking the body, while natural hygiene says, the cancer cell is the result of repeatedly damaging a normal cell through the repeated ingestion of toxic materials. In the medical narrative, the solution to a virus is the application of poison to the body to kill the invading force. Meanwhile, the natural hygiene explanation says to remove the causes of injury and the body will stop being injured.
Medicine seeks to cut, poison, or burn the malfunctioning cells out of the body. This causes injury to the healthy cells along the way and forces the body further into the upper levels of disease. Medicine approaches the abnormally functioning cells with the idea that they can apply poison to the body to correct the abnormality. The poisoning of a healthy cell would result in disease, but in medicine applying poison to a malfunctioning cell will return the cell to normal function.
Alternatively, the natural hygiene approach is to remove the causes of injury that led to the cells behaving abnormally and provide the conditions of health to allow the disease conditions to progress in the opposite direction.
Cancer is stage 6 or 7 of disease and medicine wants to add to the causes of progressive disease, keeping the body in stage 6 or pushing it to stage 7 while removing the symptoms which are the warning bells and whistles. Natural hygiene wants you to listen to the warning bells and whistles and move your body from stage 6 or 7 back to stage 5, then 4, then 3, and onward until you return fully to completely normal operation of all cells.
