The foundation of cancer treatment at East Valley Naturopathic Doctors is based on the profound research of Otto Warburg. Otto Warburg, M.D.,Ph.D., proved that a 35% reduction in oxygen caused any cell to either die or turn cancerous. Cancer is the body, at the cellular level, attempting to survive by reverting to a primitive survival mechanism. Surprisingly, it’s that simple. Most normal healthy cells get their energy by using oxygen in a process called “respiration.” This can be contrasted with the way cells utilize energy without sufficient oxygen, called “fermentation.” Fermentation of sugar provides a way for cells to keep going even in the presence of partial oxygen deprivation. In the presence of oxygen deficiency, cells that can’t obtain enough energy through fermentation perish. But the cells which succeed in utilizing fermentation exhibit their innate will to survive; these are the ones that don’t die from the oxygen deficiency.
