Inflammation, Parasites, Heavy Metals and Autoimmunity – Addressing Key Underlying Conditions That Lead To Cancer

What Causes Cancer: Root Causes and How to Prevent Them

Cancer has become such a common health problem in modern society that most of us view it as inevitable. But this doesn’t have to be the case.

Functional and holistic doctors work to identify the root causes behind diseases such as cancer. By working out the root cause behind an issue, they can provide lasting solutions. In this summit, which tackles the question, “What causes cancer?” Jonathan Otto discusses three root causes of cancer and how they can be prevented and reversed. 

#1: Heavy Metal Toxicity Can Cause Cancer

In the “What Causes Cancer?” summit, Jonathan Otto discusses the prevalence of heavy metals and how they’re linked to diseases such as cancer. Over his long career as a filmmaker and investigative journalist, he’s unearthed many shocking truths about toxins that most people have never heard. 

Out of all toxins, heavy metals are one of the most concerning. The body doesn’t have a way of naturally filtering out these chemicals like it does for normal viruses or bacteria. When heavy metals build up in the body, it’s extremely difficult for the body to catch up and completely get rid of them. 

Heavy metals lead to a variety of health issues, from infertility to mental illness to cancer. When the body is already worn down from processing heavy metal toxins, it’s unable to properly defend against invasive bacteria or out-of-control cancer cells.

In the summit, Jonathan mentions Dr. Patrick Kingsley, a UK doctor who treats multiple sclerosis (MS). Out of the 4,000 MS he’s treated, only five of them haven’t had heavy metals in their systems. Doctors such as Kingsley are seeing the evidence that heavy metals are correlated to cancer in patients all over the world.

#2 Parasites May Lead to Cancer

When you think about what causes cancer, chances are that parasites don’t come to mind. But according to Jonathan Otto, parasites have been known to cause cancer in some individuals.

Parasites normally conjure images of freaky creatures you contract after traveling to a foreign country or landscape. But anytime you step foot in a different environment, you’re exposed to different kinds of microorganisms—including parasites. 

Every parasite has ideal conditions that allow it to multiply and overthrow the host. Parasites will infect the host and cause changes in habits and behaviors in order to maintain an ideal environment for multiplying.

For example, a parasite may cause its host to start craving excessive amounts of meat, which it feeds off. If a human responds to these cravings by eating more and more meat, the parasite only grows stronger. It’s a vicious cycle, according to Jonathan Otto. 

Without stopping these behaviors, such as appetite cravings, we’re only benefiting a destructive parasite. Just like with heavy metals, a body that’s already under attack from a parasite has a lower immune system and is unable to stop cancer cells from multiplying.

Thankfully, the effects of these parasites can be reversed and stopped before too much damage is done. Doctors use natural herbs, habit changes, and nutrition plans to help their patients detox from parasites.

#3 Inflammation is a Root Cause of Cancer

Chronic inflammation is one of the biggest causes of health problems, from autoimmune disease to chronic illness to cancer. 

When the body becomes inflamed, it expends extra energy to reduce inflammation and heal damaged tissue. Chronic inflammation occurs when the body continues to become inflamed, and the cells are unable to keep up. 

During this cycle of repair followed by more inflammation, cells mutate and become cancerous. Without a properly functioning immune system, the body can’t rid itself of the cancer cells. After months or years of this cycle, the cancer cells grow and multiply until they’re out of control.

Preventing and Reversing Cancer

A cancer diagnosis doesn’t happen overnight. Months and years of heavy metal exposure, parasite infection, inflammation, and lifestyle habits such as poor diet and exercise snowball into this devastating disease.

But there’s good news. Cancer is a gradual process that can be stopped and reversed before it becomes too serious. The lifestyle changes required may feel drastic and overwhelming, but Jonathan Otto breaks it down in the What Causes Cancer summit.

Binding agents are effective in flushing heavy metals out of the body. Fulvic acid, humic acid, dandelion roots, and milk thistle help the body get rid of these toxic metals and start healing.

When it comes to ridding the body of parasites, there are a large array of foods and supplements available. Pumpkin seeds, papaya seeds, turmeric, ginger, and bitter herbs or roots are anti-parasitic and can be incorporated in your diet or a supplement. 

Mimosa Pudica Seed and ParaPurify are more fantastic supplements that remove parasites. Carriers like Triphala are often used by doctors to flush toxins into the GI tract, which are removed from the body. However, it’s important to take supplements with the guidance of a doctor, as they can damage essential gut bacteria. 

Toxicity, parasites, and inflammation damage the gut bacteria, so it’s essential to focus on healing the gut. Dietary changes are a great place to start, as well as taking supplements, exercising regularly, and managing stress. Cancer is too common in our highly-toxic lives. It’s time we took a look at the evidence and became proactive in preventing cancer cells from spreading through our bodies.
