It can be alarming to hear the "C" word, as Wen puts it. But, we all are most likely going to deal with it at some point.
I was trying to find the post where I had asked you not long ago, about taking salt while going through the cancer stuff myself. I remembered from when I was doing the high doses of Vitamin C/salt for Lyme, that you had mentioned to me about salt making cancer cells swell.
The last post when I asked you about it, you also said something on the order of..
"which isn't a problem, unless it's in a confined area, like the brain"...which you've experienced for yourself.
I did find a Gerson post of your's about it though..
all the juices people have to drink on the Gerson therapy, probably provides alot of potassium.
We succeeded in excluding the nutritional allergies by adding large doses of potassium and simultaneously applying a strictly saltless diet." (page 139) coffee enemas
and castor oil treatments were also part of this approach.
Gerson was very interested in the potassium group of minerals versus the sodium group. He favored the potassium group for treating cancer and his diet absolutely forbid adding any salt to foods. The ratio of potassium to sodium was something he emphasized several times. This, in spite of the fact that some of his contemporaries came to a different conclusion about salt. He probably talked about potassium more than any other single subject. He was also interested in other minerals as well, along with some vitamins.
Gerson was also aware of the electical component of cancer. "All investigators found that malignant tumors are characterized by a considerable electronegativity in the tissues and fluids." (page 106) In fact, this is one reason why he was so interested in potassium and other minerals. "The late G.W. Crile, and his collaborators, M. Telkes and A.F. Rowland, found a decreased electrical polarization and an increased electric conductivity in malignant tumors which may be caused, in my opinion, by the greater sodium content in the growing part of the tumor." (page 107)
