Detoxification or Cleansing of the Body
By Norman Fritz

Detoxification is an important part of the therapy advocated by many researchers who report good percentages of recovery from advanced internal, metastasized cancer. A brief discussion of detoxification is presented here....

A number of researchers have stated that the cancer patient's body has reduced ability to eliminate its own waste materials and any other poisons brought into the body through foods and water, or from the environment. All of the organs of elimination may be involved the liver, kidneys, lungs, intestinal tract, skin, mucous surfaces, etc.

Many people have experienced a high enough level of toxins when constipated, causing them to suffer headaches, nausea, etc. Another example of excessive body toxicity is uremic poisoning when urinary poisons are not adequately eliminated.

Many researchers state that the surgery, radiation, and chemical poisons used on cancer patients will usually kill millions of normal cells and add to the eliminating problem. The large amount of waste material from these dead cells must be eliminated in addition to the other toxins and waste materials the body is already overloaded with.

Some of these same researchers state that in early cancer, some of the nontoxic therapies may be quite successful without a detoxification program. They say, however, that as the cancer progresses, the patient's body becomes less able to eliminate toxins and that the amount of toxins increases. In addition, they say that although the malignant cells are destroyed by the nontoxic program, the body often cannot handle the additional waste materials coining from the dead cancer cells. They say that patients with advanced cancer who use the nontoxic system but do not use a detoxification program will have a much lower percentage of recovery. Therefore, these researchers are convinced that the "better safe than sorry" approach of helping the body to eliminate its poisons in every reasonable way possible is desirable. They feel the additional effort is justified even though some patients might get by without it. They say the patient will be better off anyway because his health will be improved in other ways than just eliminating the cancer.

Most researchers reporting high percentages of recovery for patients with advanced internal, metastasized cancer are those who advocate:

  1. A program to destroy the malignant cells without damaging normal cells.
  2. An intensive nutrition program to provide all of the raw materials the body needs.
  3. An intensive detoxification program to eliminate toxins that interfere with body functions.

The methods of detoxification as proposed by the different researchers vary somewhat, although their objectives are similar. Most of these methods emphasize a cleansing of the intestinal tract. Foods and dietary factors are used to stimulate many of the eliminative functions. Laxatives and enemas are often used. Herbal eliminates are sometimes used. Other approaches emphasize the elimination of toxins by oxidation, sometimes by the use of enzymes or catalysts such as those presented by Dr. Koch in his books.
