How Stress Causes Cancer At The Cellular Level

Cancer occurs when the body’s cells become depleted of adrenaline, high in sugar and low in oxygen due to “prolonged stress”. This leads to a breaking of the cells ‘oxygen krebs cycle’ causing cell mutation. There are a number of factors that create stress on the body’s cells.

Psychological stresses include (and are not limited to): inescapable shock, repressed emotional pain and anger, depression, isolation, poor sleep, emotional trauma, and external life stress. Physiological stresses include (and are not limited to): poor nutrition, chemicals, toxins, EMF radiation, parasites, liver or colon or kidney disease, and lack of exercise.

In the vast majority of those with cancer, there exists both a combination of psychological as well as physiological stresses that have contributed to the formation of cancer within the body.

We have simplified into five separate phases, how cancer forms within the body at the cellular level over an 18-24 month period.

Phase 1 – Inescapable Shock / Trauma Experienced

This initial phase occurs approximately 2 years ‘prior’ to the cancer diagnosis.  This is where the individual experiences an “inescapable shock” or emotional trauma, affecting deep sleep and the production of melatonin within the body.  Melatonin is necessary for inhibiting cancer cell growth and is the primary hormone responsible for regulating the immune system.

During this phase a part of the emotional reflex centre in the brain slowly breaks down due to the ’emotional trauma’. Each part of the emotional reflex centre controls and is connected to a different organ of the body, and when this emotion centre starts to break down, so does the organ of the body it controls, to later form cancer. This occurs through a direct suppression of the immune system, as outlined below.

Phase 2 – Stress Suppresses The Immune System

During this second phase, the immune system is suppressed by elevated stress hormone cortisol levels and by a subconscious wanting to die.  An individual experiencing “inescapable shock” and severe prolonged emotional stress often feels tired of life and deep down wants out of the never-ending struggle and pain of life, sending subliminal messages to the immune system to shut down. See: The Cancer Death Wish.

This causes somatids to react.  Somatids are tiny living organisms (necessary for life) that live in our blood. In a healthy organism, where the immune system is functioning properly, these somatids are limited to 3 stages in their life cycle – somatid, spore, double spore.  When the immune system is impaired or suppressed, somatids pleomorphise (or change) into a further 13 stages (16 altogether).

These further 13 stages are pathogenic (harmful) to the body and include viral, bacterial, and yeast-like fungus forms. Professor Gaston Naessens, who discovered the somatid after inventing the world’s smallest microscope (the Somatoscope) in the 1950’s, discovered that these further 13 stages always progressed over an 18-24 month time frame when the body was under severe immunicological stress, which manifested as all types of chronic illness, notably cancer. Below: The Somatid 16 stage Cycle – Professor Gaston Naessens


Phase 3 – Stress Causes Cell Glucose Levels to Rise

During this third phase, high stress hormone cortisol levels cause adrenaline levels to be depleted within the body. There are only limited reserves of adrenaline in the body, and when the a person is under “continual stress”, these reserves are depleted very quickly. This causes glucose (sugar) levels to rise within normal cells in the following way:

The main purpose of adrenaline is to remove and convert glucose from cells for energy for the body, just as it is the main purpose of insulin to transport glucose into cells.  When the adrenaline reserves are depleted, glucose (sugar) levels increase sharply within the cells – leaving little room for oxygen.  This is why so many cancer patients are weak and lethargic, because they have no adrenaline left (or very little) to convert the glucose in their cells into energy for the body and their cells subsequently have very little room left to accept oxygen from passing blood.

Phase 4 – Fungus Enter Cells to Feed on Glucose

During this fourth phase, pathogenic microbes (virus-bacteria-fungus) that have pleomorphised and established themselves in a weakened part of the body, enter normal cells to feed on these high glucose levels. This fermentation of glucose causes “mycotoxins” (a highly acidic waste product) to be released, which 1) breaks the Krebs Cycle of the cell (a process that uses oxygen as part of cellular respiration), and 2) breaks the Electron Transport Chain of the cell, meaning the number of ATP molecules drops dramatically. (ATP molecules provide energy to the cell.) This lack of oxygen and cell energy means normal cells mutate during the dividing process – creating new rogue cancer cells.

The body’s tissue and cells become highly acidic (low pH) due to the waste by-products caused by these viral-bacterial-yeast-like fungus.  Over-acidification of the body also occurs due to fermentation of excess stress hormones in the body, poor diet (low pH value foods), and lack of exercise.  Viruses, bacteria, yeast, mould, fungus, candida and cancer cells thrive in a low pH acidic environment.

Phase 5 – Fungus and Cancer Form Symbiotic Relationship

During this fifth phase viral-bacterial-yeast-like fungus form a symbiotic relationship with newly created cancer/tumor cells.  Yeast-like fungus is symbiotic in nature and feeds on the high levels of glucose to use for energy for reproduction of new somatids.  The yeast-like fungus provides a natural fermentation process and ferments the glucose within the cancer/tumor cell, providing energy and a natural growth factor in return.

The yeast-like fungus uses the cancer/tumor cells as a host or house for their rich reserves of glucose, and stimulates these cancer/tumor cells to propagate more houses.  The result is a mass of tumor cells, or tumor sites.

Yeast-like fungus prevent cancer / tumor cells reverting back into normal healthy cells (re-establishing their Krebs Cycle), as they continue to cause “mycotoxins” to be released (a highly acidic waste product), meaning cancer / tumor cells in a sense are held hostage to the yeast-like fungus that inhabit them.

Phase 6 – Stress Stimulates Tumor Cell Growth / Metastases

During this final phase elevated stress hormone norepinephrine and epinephine levels, stimulate tumor cells to produce three (3) compounds: MMP-2 and MMP-9 (both martix metalloproteinases) and the growth compound VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor).

Tumor cells make receptors for these stress hormones on their surface, to stimulate these three compounds.  MMP-2 and MMP-9 breakdown the scaffolding of tumor cell walls making it easier for them to travel to other parts of the body, a process known as metastasis.  VEGF causes blood vessels to grow in new tumor cells, so that they can grow and spread more rapidly.


News of cancer at this stage, often becomes a further “inescapable shock” and the cycle begins again with secondary tumor sites forming in different parts or organs of the body.

Use the following three tools to remove internal emotional stress that is causing your cancer: The Mind-Body Self Hypnosis Cancer CD (to heal emotions at the subconscious level) EFT for cancer (to heal emotions at the meridian energy level) and the free Cancer Healing Guide (to heal emotions at the conscious level). Each tool targets and heals the emotions differently, so each is recommended.

Lothar Hirneise: Cancer Cannot Exist Without Stress

For Lothar Hirneise, world-renowned cancer researcher: “Cancer cannot exist without stress.  One hundred percent impossible!  There are a lot of debates on types of stress – physical and psychological – but for a cell it doesn’t matter where the stress comes from.  Every cancer patient has a sugar problem.  Insulin transports sugar to cells.  Adrenaline takes it away.  You have an excess of adrenaline initially when under stress, however, long-term stress results in adrenaline shortages.  That’s what you see in cancer patients.”

According to Lothar Hirneise: “A tumour forms because someone is no longer producing adrenaline, which is needed to break down sugar. An excess of sugar is dangerous, so the body produces tumours.

Tumours ferment — burn — sugar. They also use a lot of energy — sugar — due to the fast division of cells. That’s why some tumours grow so fast. Cancer cells function like liver cells, only much more efficiently. So the tumour helps you to rid your body of poisons. Without the tumour you would be really ill. I always tell people: ‘The tumour is not your problem. A tumour is an incredibly ingenious solution on the part of the body.’ When you get healthy, the tumour disappears on its own, which is why you shouldn’t immediately operate to remove it. First detoxify yourself. If the tumour continues to grow — which is almost never the case — you can always operate later.”
