Surviving the cancer microbe

Oral surgeon Dr Pieter Dahler explains how a tribe of Latin Americans kept the cancer microbe at bay.
In the February issue of The Scavenger via a very informative article by my colleague Dr Alan Cantwell, you were introduced to the concept that bacteria could cause cancer.
I personally benefited from this awareness in 1978. A lesson with cancer then was helped by the late Dr Virginia Livingston, MD, for me to overcome it. She was one of the four principal researchers of this understanding.
I was 36 at the time. She gave me her time to study her protocols.
For 31 years I have taken daily appropriate actions to successfully keep this cancer microbe in check.
Since the February article stated that the germ is “indestructible”, and Dr Livingston proposed that it lives in everyone, I would like to share with you information based on my research.
First understand that there are more germs in and on your body than there are trillions of cells of you.
The fact that we can live to a ripe and productive old age without serious illness is evidence that our cells and germs can live together in harmony.
With my medical-dental Foundation serving 150,000 native people in Latin America, the 470 volunteer doctors and I have learned that there are a few basics in lifestyle that keep everything functioning smoothly in the body. These native people have learned to keep the cancer microbe in check.
When I first began to study and serve isolated tribes in 1971, their life-expectancy was short. Their jungle and desert environments are dangerous. They did not have the knowledge to protect themselves immunologically.
Their foods were primitive in choices. The land was not very fertile and enough water was often lacking, and what water they had was full of parasites.
As the Foundation grew we repeatedly saw that within a few years these natives can acquire healthy soil and be healthy themselves..
What is of relevant interest here is in how we measured their levels of, and progress towards health.
When you go to a doctor s/he likely orders blood tests. The results are then routinely “read” in a manner of being “within normal limits”, meaning between a low and a high value. If you fit within them you are considered OK.
I had learned in 1978, however, from a Dr Donald Kelley that such a method overlooks the finer nuances of the interrelationships between the 24 or more bio-chemical blood markers in such tests, and the true meanings they have to one’s health.
He had developed a method of using one (1) number as a “Kelley Norm” for each marker. He had studied 300,000-some “Western” people to come to such health-averages. Any deviation, higher or lower, meant that perfect/optimum health was deteriorating.
He was adamant that no blood marker stood alone for diagnostic purposes. Everything works together in the body.
In my own case, studying my blood tests at 36, he observed that I had a serious case of cancer and a deteriorating heart condition. Comparing that test with one taken at age 26, it was noticeable that I already had these conditions growing then…may be I already had them even longer.
Back to the native people of Latin America to tie this all together.
Since 1971, just out of dental college at UC San Francisco, I began to gather yearly blood and urine samples from native newborns and from different age groups. I recorded their health signs and symptoms, locations, lifestyle, type of work in the tribe, etc.
Over the years many moved to civilization. We would try to stay in contact with them and do follow-ups.
We also instituted many health-enhancing, culturally-sensitive minded, lifestyle, agricultural and hydrology practices. As my 1978 diagnosis of cancer pointed out, I had to practice more than I preached.
In 1979 a statistician joined the Foundation and she began to make sense of the numbers.
What we saw was very relevant to this bacteria-cancer concept, as well as naturally to overall health.
The 1971 babies who stayed in their tribes had blood test values that stayed close to the “Kelley Norms”. These growing-up people very rarely developed any illnesses. And if they did they recovered remarkably quickly. They were always upbeat, friendly, comfortable, productive, fit and eagerly smart.
The other age groups who stayed in their tribes had their less-than-ideal initial blood tests slowly reach these norms. Their signs and symptoms changed to optimal subjective and objective observations.
We at first did read many cancers and serious other diseases in these blood tests. With health-rebuilding protocols established in the early 1900s by a Dr Royal Lee, we were able to improve their glands’, organs’ and systems’ performances to build a solid immunological foundation. This allowed them to safely and productively live in their dangerous environments.
Those who went away and then returned for 3 to 5 years had their blood markers also changed to norms. However, this happened slower than in those who had not been somehow damaged by the influences of Western foods and manners. It was remarkable how quickly these people’s blood values changed when they left their tribes.
I particularly wanted to see how the white blood cell count, which measures infections, were reading as we offered the natives the health-protective protocols.
We also did dark-field microscope observations on highly suspicious readings. But they were generally inconclusive because the cancer microbe is pleomorphic, meaning it takes on many forms. You could see many forms at the same time.
Even so, the fact that nobody in the tribes we are honored to serve, developed cancer, heart disease, TB, allergies, dental problems, and other degenerative diseases, is evidence that our work has resulted in people having developed strong immunological defenses that do not allow them acquiring these illnesses.
What can we learn from this?
No matter where we live, no matter what we are doing to ourselves with Western (white man’s) lifestyle practices and abuses, we can be and stay healthy.
We can recover from illnesses, and whatever their source of breakdown of the body parts, we can institute health-recovery protocols that do not need to involve invasive medical practices. With the natives we never used drugs. We do minor surgery where needed, or major surgery in case of an accident.
Next month in The Scavenger I will cover the ways and means isolated people stay healthy using modern nutritional and metabolic practices by which you can also use to try to ward off the cancer microbe.
Pieter Dahler, DDS, MD, ND (hon), PhD was born in 1942 in Indonesia and lived in a jungle setting until 1947. He emigrated to the USA in 1962. In 1971 he graduated from the University of California, San Francisco, Dental School, as a Dentist and in 1974 from the US Navy Post Graduate School in Oral Surgery and Medical Anesthesiology. He was in private dental practice until 1991. Between 1969-1991, he spent vacations in Mexico taking care of a volunteer medical-dental project with a growing force of doctors and volunteers.
He has undertaken three PhDs in subjects related to nutritional-cultural-sociology, from Latin America and in 2002 organized the Foundation for the Development of Healthy Teeth in a Healthy Body, Mexico. The Foundation has a research department for doing and compiling comprehensive native and western population studies. To date, 470 Latin American doctors and thousands of volunteers give their time to 150,000 natives.
