Cancer is a Metabolic Disease

[fa icon="calendar'] Oct 22, 2016 4:52:06 AM / by Isadora Guggenheim & Winter Ninivaggi



Cancer is a metabolic disease that damages mitochondrial function.


More evidence is mounting that cancer is a metabolic disease that involves disturbances in energy production through respiration and fermentation. Genomic instability observed in tumor cells and all other recognized hallmarks of cancer are considered "downstream epiphenomena of the initial disturbance of cellular energy metabolism".

The disturbances in the tumor cell energy metabolism can be linked to abnormalities in the mitochondria where you produce energy. Cancer growth and progression can be managed following a whole body transition from fermentable metabolites, primarily glucose and glutamine to respiratory metabolites - ketone bodies. That is why the ketogenic diet is being tested in the oncology world. The point is not to feed cancer cells.

Ozone therapy gets right to the cells delivering oxygen directly to them. We just a call yesterday from one of our patients with stage 3 esophageal cancer. This patient did a short round of chemo and then stopped. He continued on with I.V. Ozone saline and recently switched to the 10 pass method. Current imaging and labs show that the tumor originally shrunk from 4.9 to 2.2 so we have more work to do, but we are definitely headed in the right direction. The patient feels great, has his hair and is able to function normally.

To keep your mitochondria healthy, I recommend Xymogen's Mitochondrial Renewal. Order Xymogen
