Did you know that there are over 250 volatile compounds (VOC) released in the breath from cancer cells? Linus Pauling investigated this phenomenon years ago. Today, scientists are currently developing new tests for breath analysis. They have discovered that a simple analysis of our breath can determine if we have cancer.
Although there are variations depending on the stage and type of cancer, among other factors, the main point is that numerous VOCs can be measured in our breath. It is surprising to learn that there are alkanes, ketones, aldehydes, alcohols, and more present. Even acetone, which is found in nail polish remover, is elevated in the breath of cancer patients. This realization emphasizes the importance of each breath, not only for staying alive but for continuing to be alive. Therefore, we should make a conscious effort to focus on our breathing every day.
Deep and concentrated breathing has the ability to alter the body’s acid-base balance. Organized deep breathing raises our pH to a safe alkaline level. In cancer patients, the pH is usually acidic due to the release of lactic acid and various other toxins by tumor cells.
Additionally, deep breathing can lower cortisol levels, which are detrimental to the immune system. When we panic, our breath becomes shallow, resembling the panting of a fearful wild animal. This acidic state negatively affects our immune system.
It is not surprising that practices such as Yoga, meditation, and Qigong, which emphasize breathing techniques, can assist patients in improving their health and aiding in the healing of cancer. Even the word “inspiration” means to breathe in. While we typically associate inspiration with creativity, it actually signifies life itself. I often tell my patients to “relax” and believe that they can be healed, as their mental state plays a crucial role in the healing process.
With each breath, visualize your body healing, your stress levels decreasing, and your immune system strengthening to transform your entire body and reverse your cancer. This journey towards healing takes time and involves relearning in various areas to guide your body towards wellness.
Let go of the stress that burdened you before and return to the simplest action you can take: deep breathing. Learn to trust in your own body and its ability to help you regain your health, allowing you to move towards a future of well-being.
