As of today 17th August 2009 I have removed
109 skin cancers
From different parts of my head and body, in the past 3 years
since my first skin cancer, an Infiltrating Basal Cell Carcinoma
was diagnosed when the skin specialist performed a biopsy on my nose.
Reflecting on these skin cancers I wondered why when we normally
get sun burned all over why do we just seem to get skin cancers
appearing in selected parts of our anatomy?
This poses an interesting thought that was mentioned to me a few months
ago that has had me thinking ever since.
What was mentioned to me was “CELL MEMORY”.
I have to admit that before I started to research this concept I had
absolutely no idea what cell memory was or if it even existed.
Thank heaven for Google, I typed in Cell memory and D.N.A
And then went through the tedious and enlightening process of discovering
what CELL MEMORY is.
Roughly translated cell memory is the ability of the cell to for want of a better
word remember things that happened to its surroundings.
For example when the helper T cells finally remove an intruder such as
a virus from our system it keeps a memory of the make up of that intruder
and next time it should occur again they destroy it straight away.
Some transplant patients also report that after receiving a transplant they start to manifest
some of the characteristics of the donor.
My curiosity is why do from my observation of my self and others why when we get
sun burned all over why do the skin cancers mainly manifest themselves
in certain localised areas.
Why is it for example that when a skin cancer is removed either surgically,
or laser, or frozen, or by specific ointments and then the area is examined
under the microscope and pronounced clear why is it that 6 months 12 months or a
few years later another skin cancer appears near that same area?
I have just started to remove 2 new skin cancers off my back and if you look
closely there are the scars of others removed approximately 18 months before.
My question is why in this same area why not on my stomach or my foot since
when I was 17 years old I got badly burned and now at 60 years of age
I am getting the results of that action, why is it that the skin cancers seem
to come out in these specific areas? Cell memory seems to have some merit or
until we find out differently.
Now the big Questions that arise from this is this:
If cell memory is the reason these skin cancers appear in approximately the same area how
can we change the memory and instil a new one?
How can we reverse the process where by we continue to get these skin cancers?
I have just started reading a new book and the author says that the skin cancers
are the body encapsulating the acids in the body and sealing to protect
the body and that the best way to protect the body is to
alkalise it and bring the pH level to 6.8 –7.2
Maybe by controlling this we might be able to change the cell memory.
Any way I am still researching and looking for more results of published
research as I find the information and how it applies to me I will condense
it into user friendly easy to understand language
