Cancer patients need LIGHT!
According to a scientific article in “Health & Diet Times” (June/July 1982 issue) written by Lee de Vries, MD, cancer cells self-destruct within minutes after exposure to strong intense light. What happens is that the cancerous PLANT cell changes its formaldehyde into a plant sugar molecule giving off oxygen-ozone in the process and it is this element combination of O2 and O3 which causes the disintegration of the cancer cell. If you can’t get enough sunshine, make absolutely sure that you obtain enough of the essential fatty acids (LA and LNA) …so that your organism can produce the important prostaglandins, the precursors of hormones.
… Get as much exposure to sunlight and fresh air as you possibly can and watch your tumors and cancers shrink away.*
Dr. Jürgen Buche
Healing with light and color in my eyes will be among the great healing modalities of the future, as they have been in the past – since we ARE “children of the light”. Read here about the enormous healing power of sunlight (yes!), the strong influence of different light sources on cancer incidence and healing, “man as an antenna for sunlight” as well as about Photodynamic Therapy and healing cancer with UV light (Photoluminescence Therapy). As you will see from the articles featured here, many erudite authors have arrived at a similar conclusion: the sun, used wisely and with discrimination, is one of our greatest healing boons, including the prevention and healing of cancer, and our gradual alienation from the sun, particularly over the course of the previous centuries, is one central contributing factor in the epidemic of cancer and other diseases which we are currently witnessing. It may also hold one of the major keys to stem the dismal tide and to allow health – rather than disease – to become the norm again.
A personal advice would be to get as much sunlight (without wearing glasses or sunscreen) as you can and as feels comfortable (i.e. without burning your skin) while avoiding certain artifical light sources such as fluorescent lighting. If you are “new” to sunbathing, I’d start with small doses and only gradually build up the exposure to the extent that feels good and doesn’t irritate your skin. In this context, make sure to learn about Dr. Johanna Budwig’s natural cure protocol in which sunlight exposure is one of the essential healing factors*. Two extracts from her book Flax Oil as a True Aid highlight the vital importance she assigned to sunlight as a crucial healing and health maintenance factor and why the “electrons in our food [from essential Omega3 fatty acids] serve as the resonance system for the sun’s energy”. In this love for the sun, of course, she is far from alone as other naturopaths, including famous natural hygiene proponent Dr. Herbert Shelton, also hold the sun in high esteem and assign it an important (even central) role in health maintenance and recovery from illness.
*Additional note by Healing Cancer Naturally: There are a number of testimonials by persons reporting dramatically improved tolerance for sunshine as they adopt the Budwig diet. As mentioned, if you have avoided the sun for years, increase exposure gradually – preferably after starting on the Budwig or other healthy diet rich in easily available omega3 fatty acids – making sure you don’t get burned and feel comfortable.
Sunlight and cancer incidence – can sunlight prevent cancer?
excerpted from BBC News
A small amount of sunshine can help reduce the risk of breast, colon and prostate cancers, according to US scientists.
Sunlight is a key source of vitamin D, and scientists told the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual meeting in Boston the vitamin plays a crucial role in regulating the production of cells, a mechanism which is absent in cancer…
Dr William Grant, an independent researcher from Virginia, has examined the difference in cancer rates dependent on where people live.
Dr Grant’s US work, using data from the Atlas of Cancer Mortality, found death rates for breast, colon and ovarian cancers in Boston and New England were almost twice as high as they were in the southwest from 1950 to 1994.
He found the same link, with varying increased risk, for 13 cancers including bladder, kidney, stomach and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
He estimates there have been 23,000 deaths from cancer per year – taking the difference in UV radiation between northern and southern states – which could have been prevented if people had had enough vitamin D [created by exposure of skin to sunlight’s UV-B fraction]. He suggests this year, the figure could be 30,000.
Based on his US findings, he estimates a quarter of breast cancer deaths in the UK are a result of vitamin D deficiency.
He told BBC News Online: “I believe my research should be considered a clarion call for more investigation by the health establishment on the benefits of solar radiation and UV B.”
