What is the Cause of
Following my partner, Glenn’s,
diagnosis with an aggressive form of cancer, my hours of
research led me to discover a series of medical researchers
who have come to the conclusion that cancer is a metabolic
A metabolic disease is one that develops as a result of
our metabolism becoming corrupted. Simply put – metabolism
is “the chemical processes occurring within a living cell or
organism that are necessary for the maintenance of life.”
The medical researchers suggest that the metabolism
becomes corrupted because the raw ingredients, that is the
nutritional elements, required for the chemical processes
are either missing or not available in sufficient quantity.
Their assertion is that what we call “illness” is simply
a result of the body’s survival response “gone wrong” caused
by our body not having the nutritional elements to continue
life or to heal itself in a healthy manner.
History is full of examples of diseases cured by
increasing certain nutritional elements:
. Scurvy which is prevented and reversed by increasing
. Pellagra prevented and treated with Vitamin B3 (that is
. Beriberi prevented and treated with Vitamin B1 or
. Pernicious anaemia which is treated with Vitamin B12
So what about Cancer?
The researchers say that when we suffer an injury, either
internal or external, the body goes in to a healing process
that becomes corrupted.
The mechanics of this are that oestrogen in the body
triggers certain cells to become trophoblastic i.e. to
multiply faster than normal, to heal the wound. We actually
see this happen whenever we suffer a cut to our skin.
Normally this accelerated cell production is terminated
when the wound is healed. However if certain elements are
not present in the body, specifically pancreatic enzymes,
then the cells continue to multiply, creating a mass or
tumour, which we call cancer.
If the body finally catches up and stops the
trophoblastic cells, the mass is found to be benign or no
longer active. If the cells are still proliferating we call
This research indicates therefore, that cancer is simply
an unterminated healing process caused by the lack of the
basic nutritional elements the body uses to create
This is also the explanation given as to why, so often,
surgery to remove cancer actually results in it spreading
faster. Obviously, the surgery creates more wound sites,
which trigger (and release) yet more uncontrolled
trophoblastic cells that result in more cancer.
Take it a step further by looking at the common medical
treatments of radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
Radiation therapy (a form of burning) simply creates even
more wound sites and yet more opportunities for further
corrupted healing processes.
Chemotherapy impacts drastically on the body’s immune
system, reducing even further the body’s natural ability to
All of which of course, simply increases the chances of
more cancer, usually of the more virulent types known as

Marilyn's partner Glenn was diagnosed with an aggressive
cancer, which lead to her researching extensively for
answers. She and Glenn have always had a keen interest in
natural health, and this article summarises the answers they
found as to how cancer develops.
