Andreas Moritz took charge of his own healthcare when he was young in order to cope with severe illnesses he was experiencing. He studied nutrition and natural healing. In 1991 he became a qualified practitioner of Ayurveda, which, incidentally, Wikipedia characterizes as "pseudoscientific." But I'm reading his book Cancer Is Not a Disease - It's a Survival Mechanism now, and I would say his background in Ayurveda has equipped him to make much more sense than mainstream Western medicine. Here is his biography: About Andreas.

My understanding of the reasoning behind the statement that cancer is a survival mechanism is that the cause of the cancer is severe congestion in the body from toxins and waste products that have not been properly eliminated, and that an emergency coping mechanism is needed to prevent the death of the person from these toxins and waste products. The tumor is there to give the toxins and waste products a place to go to keep them out of the bloodstream where they would cause death. The cancer is an attempt by the body to prolong life as long as possible. The cure for the cancer is not to kill the tumor but to rid the body of toxins and waste products via. natural treatments and an overhaul in life style and emotional self-awareness. Then the cause of the cancer will be removed.

This is pseudo science because anyone who has the bare minimum of understanding about how cancer works knows that cancer is ALWAYS caused by a mutation of one type of cell. Not because a congestion from toxins.

For example the exposure to ionizing rays or even to the sun can cause mutations leading to cancer without any involvement of toxins. Sometimes it's even simply a case of bad luck since mutations happen all the time in our body.


I'm all in favor of holistic medicine, self-awareness and naturopathy, but some people should stay far away from giving advices about cancer because all they are doing is spreading disinformation and leading people to uninformed decisions.



Also seriously, the body is perfectly able to excrete toxins via a wide variety of ways. It doesn't need "tumors" to store these toxins that's one of the most ridiculous claims I have ever read about tumors.

Tumors don't "store". Tumors are cells that reproduce anarchically. ALL the cells of a tumor are the clones of one initial cell which mutated to become immortal by the alteration of 10 to 20 key genes.

So by this statement you recommend months or years of chemo or "traditional medicine" to "cure" the mutation of the cells?

I have no idea where you read that from my post. I think you are assuming wildly.

Actually I specifically said:

"I'm all in favor of holistic medicine, self-awareness and naturopathy"



I'm just calling the theory of this book for what it is: pseudo scientific BS.

I believe in the book he talks about the mutation of the cell as nature's way of coping with the toxicity crisis.

I'm out.

He practices iridology.
And this.

I believe that he also coined the saying "If you repeat the word gullible enough it sounds like you're saying oranges".

Well he's wrong because such mutations happen all the time in non-toxic environment.

Each time a cell is replicating its DNA gets damaged a bit. Sometimes the body can repair it (when we are still young it's easier), and sometimes it can't and the mutation remains.

The cause is the mutation.

The cause isn't toxins.

Mutation can be caused by tons of different things:

- carcinogens
- ionizing rays
- cellular reproduction

etc...



By putting a focus on toxins he is actually narrowing his views and ignoring the broader picture.




But I suppose "toxins" sounds cool and that it helps to claim all you need to heal cancer is to "detox" your body.

Can there not be more than one scenario for a mutation to happen?

Don't forget to the the disclaimer on his website.

This is actually explained in my post above???

It's that book claiming all cancers are caused by toxins. Not me.

I claimed it's much more complicated and includes multiple scenarios. And that he puts the focus on the wrong cause (toxins instead of mutation)

So simple. This is a major step up from the concept that stress causes disease.
Poisons stored--not very safely--to "protect" the body but yet fail.
Who would have thought it?

My late wife is somewhere laughing.

What would be this man's advice to someone with a perfectly healthy and clean body who unfortunately caught a skin cancer from exposures to UV?

Let's see:

The cure for the cancer is not to kill the tumor but to rid the body of toxins and waste products via. natural treatments and an overhaul in life style and emotional self-awareness. Then the cause of the cancer will be removed.


But that guy had no toxins, no waste product, and was emotionally well and self-aware!!!

The cause of the cancer was the sun!!!

Should that guy remove the sun to treat his cancer?

This is the kind of garbage this book seems to be suggesting!

My soon to be ex wife has been an Oncology RN for 20 years and has seen the effects first hand of these types of "cures". People who come to the hospital as a last resort, when all their healthy diet, exercise and snake oils didn't work. She has to be the one to hold their hand,wipe their ass and try to comfort them while they scream in pain, all because some guy said "Here, read my book and you'll be ok".
Modern medicine may not know everything, but give me chemo over a carrot any day.

His focus is on toxins, yes, but he also says that the mind-body connection is very important. From a book excerpt posted on Natural News:


After having seen thousands of cancer patients over a period of three decades, I began to recognize a certain pattern of thinking, believing and feeling that was common to most of them. To be more specific, I have yet to meet a cancer patient who does not feel burdened by some poor self-image, unresolved conflict and worries, or past emotional conflict/trauma that still lingers in his subconscious mind and cellular memories. I believe that cancer, the physical disease, cannot occur unless there is a strong undercurrent of emotional uneasiness and deep-seated frustration.

So when Pancreatic cancer kills it's host, that's a survival mechanism?

I believe the track record on chemo is abysmal.

Additionally, the mind-body connection re. being in touch with our emotional state is just as important as the carrot.

The death is caused by the toxicity and/or mainstream cancer treatment, not the cancer.

But a tumor can cause death if it's blocking a major organ.

It might come as a surprise to you but many if not most doctors also agree with that. Your state of mind, your mood, your stress level plays a big role in your health in general and the capacity of your body to heal itself. They will recommend to work on these issues as well as following a treatment.


But in no way it means:

- toxins and past-emotional traumas are the cause and explanation of cancer
- getting rid of toxins and working on yourself is sufficent to get rid of a tumor.



If you can't see how flawed this logic is then of course you will fall for the BS claimed by that man.

Is he aware of neonatal cancer?
