Polyps and Cancer Cells are Immortal

Polyps and Cancer Cells are Immortal
September 27, 2015 Patrick Nemechek, D.O.

Polyps and CancerUnlike normal healthy cells, cancer cells never die. This is an essential component of cancer.

The majority of our cells live only a few days or weeks. They are designed by nature to routinely die off in a process called apoptosis.

When cells die off they are replaced with healthier cells. These new cells help the body function day after day, year after year.

So how does a mass of cells survive in someoneā€™s lung, liver, or breast for months without dying off like they are programmed? The cells have learned to become immortal.

Cells become unhealthy and function abnormally because of stressors such as metabolic inflammation, endoplasmic reticular stress, and oxidative stress within the mitochondria.

The abnormal cells transform and they learn to overcome their programmed death and live for months. Cells start becoming immortal in the precancerous stage.

Achieving cellular immortality is critical for the final transformation to cancer. One example is found in the cells lining the colon. These cells should only live two weeks and then be replaced with new cells.

But when cell programming does not work, the body may develop a colon polyp. A polyp is a finger-like projection of tissue that grows into the lumen of the colon.

It is like an internal skin tag of cells that should not have lived long enough to grow outwards. A polyp is evidence that the cells are learning to become immortal.

This abnormal growth process applies to the skin, gallbladder, nasal cavity, bladder, and stomach. Not all polyps turn into cancer but the important point is that if someone has had a polyp anywhere, their metabolism is broken to the point where cells may become cancerous in other locations.

If someone gets a colonoscopy and has polyps removed, they should not assume everything is fine. Cutting something off does not mean they ā€œgot it allā€.

The same metabolic disturbance causing cells in the colon to become immortal is still present and may start acting on the cells in the breast, lung, or skin.

And if someone has already been treated for cancer, this metabolic derangement is still active and can trigger a relapse or a new type of cancer.

A broad-based approach to reverse insulin resistance and lower metabolic inflammation is required to allow cells to naturally die off as planned and not turn into one of the cancers that are epidemic today. This often involves critical Autonomic Nervous System dysfunction repair.

Disease reversal begins when we do not merely focus on the bad things cancer cells do after they become immortal (tissue invasion, metastasis, blood vessel growth), but when we understand the natural cell cycles and we become motivated to turn off the metabolic inflammation that gives these cells their sinister power.

    Thank You

    Thank you. May be I phrased the sentence wrong. What would be metabolic inflammatory load? Tried looking online.

      Try searching for inflammaging or inflamm-aging or metabolic inflammation along with the term ‘pubmed’. That will restrict the search to peer-reviewed literature from the library of congress.

    Thank you so much. How can one check metabolic inflammatory load?

      There is no good way to do it at present.

      The bottom line is that everyone is suffering from it and everyone needs to just go ahead and start working towards lowering it.

    Dear Dr. Nemechek, firstly thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with the world. I owe all my recent improvements to you. šŸ™‚ Would like to know what you think of supplements like coenzyme A (By coenzyme A technologies)? While I have intolerances to dairy, soy etc. ; I have problems with citric acid and acetic acid metabolism. This lead me think of probable issues with my krebs cycle, hence a need to improve mitochondrial activity. Was thinking of trying out Conenzyme A as many people have reported relief with citric acid intolerances and I am hoping it would crank up the mitochondria. Would like to hear your opinion.

      I would look at your metabolic inflammatory load and intestinal bacterial balance instead of the Krebs cycle in order to resolve your problem

    Hi Dr. Nemechek,
    I would like to thank you for healing my son. God bless you! My question is not about him and it’s about me. I am taking Tamoxifen for abnormal cells found in my breast. Is it ok if I take Rifaximin with it?

      I think so but be sure to ask your prescribing doctor.
