If lack of oxygen is a
key driver of cancer growth
so is low CO2, pH and
depressed cell voltage.
Cancer cells possess different electrical and chemical properties
than normal cells.
In cancerous tissue the electrical potential of
cell membranes is maintained at a lower level than that of healthy
cells. Dr. Jerry Tennant says that at +30 millivolts we get cancer,
a level of voltage where the polarity has shifted from negative to
Dr. Merrill Garnett reports that all cancer cells have abnormal
electron transfer systems and that normal cell development involves
normal energy flows.
Dr. Steve Haltiwanger says,
"What is known is
that in cancer changes in cell membrane structure, changes in
membrane function, changes in cell concentrations of minerals,
changes in cell membrane potential, changes in the electrical
connections within the cells and between cells, and changes in
cellular energy production all occur."
Heavy metals and chemical toxins are capable of causing cancerous
transformations because they affect the structure and function of
the cell membrane and the
mitochondria - disrupting the electrical
potential of cell membranes and the structure of mitochondrial
membranes, which ends up deactivating the electron transport chain
and disturbing oxygen-dependent energy production.
Cells will then
revert to fermentation, which is a less efficient primeval form of
The German cancer researcher Dr. Paul Gerhard Seeger found that
cancer cells utilize only between 5 and 50% of the oxygen of normal
cells. The virulence of cancer cells is directly proportional to
their loss of oxygen utilization, and with this to the degree of
blockage of the respiratory chain.
In 1957 Seeger successfully
transformed normal cells into cancer cells within a few days by
introducing chemicals that blocked the respiratory chain.
Seeger demonstrated in 1938 that in most
cases cancer starts in the
cytoplasm, the jelly-like outer part of
the cell, and especially in the energy-producing mitochondria. Here
food fragments are normally oxidized in a series of enzymatic steps
called the 'respiratory chain'.
Seeger showed that in cancer cells
this respiratory chain was more or less blocked, especially at the
site of the important enzyme cytochrome oxidase. Without it the cell
produce energy only anaerobically like a fungal cell.
very inefficient and the resulting overproduction of lactic acid
makes the cell and the whole body overly acidic.
Cancer tumors not only have a low
voltage but they go beyond that into a range that it is so low that
they are stealing
electrons from the surrounding tissues thus lowering their voltage-pulling
them down into cancer as well.
A plus sign in front of the voltage
number means that they have crossed a threshold, they have reversed
polarity and have thus become the enemies of the healthy cells of
the body. When our voltage goes down too far (even when still on the
healthy negative side) we start to experience pain and sickness.
reading of -15, -10, or even -5 can be experienced (as increasing
pain) but it is not until they go down below zero and beyond to a
+30, that cancer occurs.
A plus sign means they are
stealing, hungry for electrons whereas a negative sign (normal)
means cells have energy and electrons to give. The negative sign of
the membrane potential indicates that the inside surface of the cell
membrane is relatively more negative than the than the immediate
exterior surface of the cell membrane. (1)
According to Seeger cancer cells become
more electronegative as their membrane degenerate.
In the initial
carcinogenesis, the external cell membrane weakens and then
the inner mitochondrial membrane, which alters the energy producing
capacity forcing the cell into fermentation as an alternative source
The degenerative changes in the inner membrane of the
mitochondria causes loss of anchorage of critical mitochondrial
enzymes. The mitochondria in cancer cells degenerate and die off in
When we add voltage to cells we improve
cell membrane potentials and increase mitochondrial production of
ATP, cell membrane permeability, production of proteins and as well
as increase absorption of nutrients and elimination of cellular
pH, Voltage and Oxygen
Voltage circuits run through the nervous
system and heart.
Body fluids, vessels, fascia and other connective
tissues conduct electrical energy. When we have enough voltage,
enough energy our body transports oxygen efficiently. All cells need
a steady supply of oxygen to power their mitochondria, where more
electrons are generated.
We can raise voltage in the body by
directly imputing electrons to facilitate oxygen delivery, which of
course raises energy levels and the health of all cells.
from the Cancer Research UK-MRC Gray Institute for Radiation Oncology &
Biology at the University of Oxford have discovered that
oxygen makes cancer cells weak and less resistant to treatment.
Previously scientists have tried to cut off the blood (thus oxygen)
thought to be fueling tumor growth.
The idea has been to starve and
kill the tumor. When we use oxygen as a treatment it actually
improves the blood vessels within the tumors thus increasing the
concentration of oxygen present.
The external pH of solid tumors is
acidic as a consequence of increased metabolism of glucose and poor
Acid pH has been shown to stimulate tumor cell invasion and
metastasis in vitro and in cells in vivo.
That is the same as saying low voltage
stimulates tumor cell invasion and metastasis.
Sodium Bicarbonate, which increases
tumor pH, inhibits spontaneous metastases. Basic scientific research

Julian Whitaker and Mark McCarty write,
"The degree to which
pH is depressed in tumors - as mirrored by their lactate levels -
tends to correlate with prognosis, the
more acidic tumors
being associated with poorer outcome.
In part, this
phenomenon may reflect the fact that tumor acidity is serving as a
HIF-1 activation, which works in a variety of
complementary ways to boost tumor capacity for invasion, metastasis,
angiogenesis, and chemo-resistance.
However, there is increasing
evidence that extracellular acidity
per se contributes to the aggressiveness of cancer cells,
boosting extracellular proteolytic activities, expression of pro-angiogenic
factors, and metastatic capacity."
Genes directly experience external
Cancer cells have a lower voltage and a lower pH than surrounding
tissues. Our body's pH and voltage will control the activity of
every metabolic function happening in our body.
pH is behind the
body's electrical system and intracellular activity as well as the
way our bodies utilize enzymes, minerals, and vitamins.
History of Voltage in
Medical Physics website, we read the history of voltage in
The link between voltage and cancer goes back to the late
1930s, when Dr. Harold Saxton Burr used a new-fangled device called
a voltmeter to show that tumor tissue has different electrical
properties from normal tissue.
In the early 1970s Dr. Clarence Cone, a
biophysicist at NASA's Langley Research Center in Virginia, traced
this difference to a disparity in cell polarization, or how much
more negatively charged the inside of a cell is compared with its
Tumor cells, Cone found, are less polarized than normal
cells, and he suggested that electric polarization might somehow be
a regulator of cancer and other cell proliferation.
Tumorous cells (highlighted in red) have
consistently lower voltages
than healthy cells.
Michael Levin at Tufts University in Medford, MA, and doctoral
Brook Chernet have in recent years found persuasive evidence
that Cone was right.
In their experiment, they injected messenger
RNA that encodes human oncogenes - genes that can transform normal
cells into tumor cells - into tadpoles. Next, they soaked the frog
larvae in fluorescent dye.
This dye was voltage-sensitive,
fluorescing more brightly when the cell polarization was greater.
Levin and Chernet did not know which
tadpoles would develop tumors. However, as soon as a tadpole
exhibited a dark patch of low fluorescence, indicating lowered cell
polarization, the researchers segregated it from the others to
They found that, over several days, such patches of
lowered polarization nearly always developed into tumors, confirming
the link between cell polarization and cancer.
Stop Cancer by
Increasing Polarization of the Cells
Dr. Jerry Tennant says,
"We do not treat
cancer. We do support patients with cancer to help get their
nutrition, minerals, acid-base balance, etc. in as good a condition
He also says,
"The reversal of polarity occurs in a
battery in a circuit and the accompanying loss of oxygen with low
voltage tells local stem cells to make a placenta (cancer) to
attempt to correct the low voltage and oxygen via fermentation since
there is inadequate oxygen to keep that organ functional.
switch for cancer is an accumulation of electron stealers in an
acupuncture circuit; the off switch for cancer is removing the
causes of low voltage and inserting enough electrons to reverse the
polarity back to normal."
According to researchers at Tufts
University, the two phenomena - lowered polarization and tumor
development - are connected by a straightforward chain of events.
Cells become polarized when there is an imbalance of the positive
and negative ions that flow in and out of cells through channels in
Polarization itself regulates the
operation of so-called transporter proteins, which pump signaling
molecules through the channels.
Through their experiments, Levin and Chernet have found that a lowered polarization inhibits the function
of a transporter protein that draws in the signaling molecule
butyrate, which, through various enzymes, controls the expression of
With less butyrate in the cell, these genes are free
to instigate abnormally high, cancerous growth.
Levin is encouraging scientists to
consider the possibility that tumor cells are not irrevocably
damaged, at least not all of them, and other researchers have
suggested the same.

Treating Cancer with...
Voltage, Alkalinity and Oxygen
by Mark Sircus
December 16, 2016
Treating cancer with the triad of voltage, alkalinity and oxygen
is an interesting new approach because it treats the fundamental
reasons cancer cells form and get aggressive.
What is most
interesting is that voltage, alkalinity and oxygen levels track
each other. They all increase or decrease together yet we can
use treatment approaches that focus on each of the triads arms.
Electrons can be used to increase
voltage directly. Sodium
and potassium bicarbonates can increase alkalinity
chemically. And oxygen can be provided in several
ways and importantly with

simultaneously increasing cellular voltage.

Dr. Otto Warburg, also a Nobel Prize
recipient, in 1931 and 1944, said,
internal environment was changed from an acidic
oxygen deprived environment to an alkaline
environment full of oxygen, viruses, bacteria
and fungus cannot live."
The position of the
oxygen disassociation curve (ODC) is influenced
directly by pH, core body temperature and carbon
According to Warburg, it
is the increased amounts of carcinogens, toxicity
and pollution that cause cells to be unable to
uptake oxygen efficiently. This is connected with
over-acidity, which itself is created principally
under low oxygen conditions.

rather than succumbing to gently hypoxic conditions, the
lack of oxygen commonly created as a tumor outgrows its blood
supply signals a tumor to grow and metastasize in search of new
oxygen sources - for example, hypoxic bladder cancers are
likely to metastasize to the lungs, which is frequently deadly."
A team of researchers lead by Dr.
Bradly Wouters, at the University of Toronto, Canada assert that
tumors with large areas with low levels of oxygen (areas known
as hypoxic regions) are associated with
poor prognosis and treatment response.
Not all the regions of a tumor are equal in terms of their
oxygen levels. One clinically important implication of this is

The coordination of information by the

of cellular functions and cell growth. It takes energy to

are no longer regulated by the normal control mechanisms.
Communication breaks down because there is not enough voltage

particular the metabolism of every single cell are based on
their voltage and electromagnetic frequency.

reported inducing apoptosis in cancer cells with electric pulses
Using needle electrodes, they zapped tumors with a
series of electric pulses 300 nanoseconds long and 60 kilovolts
per centimeter in magnitude. They found that treated tumors grew
only 50 to 60 percent as big as the untreated tumor, with many
cells dying by apoptosis.

In layman's terms:
pulses create a brief, intense voltage around each cell. The
mitochondria within the cell grab some of this energy. This, in
turn, makes the cell more efficient at producing ATP and
delivering oxygen throughout the body.
Using micro-current is a
more direct way of bathing cells with voltage boosting ATP

faster the cancer spreads. If cancer cells get enough oxygen,
they will die (cancer cells are anaerobic).
