A Rational Theory of Cancer

by Dr. Marc Swanepoel

(The Best Years in Life) The orthodox theory of cancer is that it results from the mutations in the genes of normal cells which, in turn, are caused by various factors including environmental carcinogens. The problem with this theory is that there is lots of research showing that gene mutation is neither necessary nor sufficient to bring about cancer. However, Nobel Prize winner Otto Warburg already showed as early as 1924 that in cancer cells the production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) better known as cellular energy is disrupted. He incorrectly concluded that it was due to a STRUCTURAL defect in cellular mitochondria, the main source of ATP production. It took another 60 years before it was shown that cancer was due to a FUNCTIONAL defect in the mitochondria. This change in the function of the mitochondria is most likely due to the depletion of the main antioxidant in the body – glutathione – as a result of lifestyle situations and toxins.

Under normal conditions (e.g. 200 years ago), our glutathione levels were adequate to handle the toxins that we encountered on a daily basis. Today, however, we are bombarded with hundreds of thousands of environmental toxins which, combined with the products of our own metabolic processes (including stress), can deplete our glutathione levels over time. The cells then suffer a situation known as 'oxidative stress'. Chronic oxidative stress leads to a defence mechanism of affected cells which convert from mitochondrial production of ATP to the less efficient production of ATP in the cytoplasm. This is known as 'cancer'. Subsequently, gene mutations in some cells can take place (which led to the incorrect orthodox theory of cancer as a process of chance mutations).

A further consequence of glutathione depletion and chronic oxidative stress is that the hydrogen bonds that connect the base pairs (thymine-adenine or cytosine-guanine) in the double helical DNA 'ladder' become weakened and allows certain enzymes to initiate the split of the DNA that then leads to the consequent cell division - a characteristic of cancer. The initial discovery of the weak hydrogen bonds was made by Dr Mirko Beljanski, a Yugoslavian researcher who worked at the Pasteur Institute in France for nearly 30 years and for a number of years thereafter at a private laboratory. He also discovered that the alkaloids in certain botanicals could strengthen the weakened hydrogen bonds. The two herbal substances discovered by Beljanski that contain the required alkaloids are Pau Pereira* and Rauwolfia Vomitoria**.


In order to reverse the cancer process, TWO steps are thus necessary:

(1) To increase the depleted glutathione levels that caused the 'oxidative stress' situation in the first place.
(2) To strengthen the weakened hydrogen bonds in the DNA double helix structure which are responsible for the rapid cell division in cancer.

No (1) above can be achieved by taking the oleander mixtures plus some additional N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC). One’s body can use cysteine to synthesize glutathione. There is also a possibility that the oleander strengthens the Hydrogen bonds of the DNA in cancer cells. This will explain some of its anti-cancer action. The oleander mixtures are available on my web site

No (2) above can be achieved by taking Pao Pereira and/or Rauwolfia vomitoria. I will have a oleander/Pao Pereira mixture as well as pure Pao Pereira on my web site shortly. You can also order the two herbs from

*Pao Pereira (Geissospermum vellosii) is an indigenous tree from the Amazon rainforest. The extract from the inner bark seems to effectively suppress the proliferation of HIV, herpes viruses, cancer and leukemia cells.  Alkaloids from the stem bark of Pao Pereira possess a variety of therapeutic properties including antimalarial activities, activity as a sexual stimulant and inhibition of the proliferation of HIV and herpes viruses. Bark extracts from Pao Pereirai, enriched in alpha-carboline alkaloids have significant anticancer activities in certain preclinical models; they suppress prostate cancer cells.

One of the constituents of Pao Pereira is flavopereirine, a small molecule that is able to cross the blood brain barrier, thus giving it promise in the treatment of brain tumors as well against a wide range of cancers. . Flavopereirine also exerts a selective inhibition action on viral HIV infection, particularly in patients infected by HIV-1.

**Rauvolfia vomitoria is a shrub or small tree up to 8 m. Older parts of the plant contain no latex. The generic name Rauvolfia (sometimes mis-spelt Rauwolfia), commemorates a 16th century German physician, Leonhart Rauvolf, who travelled widely to collect medicinal plants. The specific epithet vomitoria refers to the purgative and emetic properties of the bark. Rauwolfia vomitoria is reported to combat the interference of aggressive and toxic substances, have a protective effect on cells, and promote healthy cellular regulation. A rodent study reported in the February edition of the North American Journal of Medical Science indicated that Rauwolfia vomitoria improved immunity and hematology.
