Step 1- Clean
Detoxify the biological system (long term)
This step is the initial and primary step of cleaning up the biological system. Heavy metals along with the persistent organic pollutants (POP’s) are increasing in our bodies. As a result of a chronic lack of good nutrition and an overabundance of the above mentioned toxicities, changes begin taking place within the physiological system as described with an analogy of a volcano of various toxicities erupting and causing massive burden on the immune system.
Eventually, this process leads to an increase in cell mutations and cancer oftentimes is the result, since the protective antioxidant pathways are unable to keep up with the increasing rate of cell mutations. Apoptosis (programmed cell death) which is responsible for the self-destruction of abnormal, unhealthy cells begins to become suppressed, allowing cancer cells to grow unchecked. This is what begins to happen in the picture of cancer.
Step 2- Optimize
Reconfigure the physiologic environment (re-establish)
This step is the most lengthy and most difficult of the five steps. This step includes all therapies designed to make the patient’s internal biological system “unfriendly” to cancer, such as proper nutrition, supplementation (vitamins, minerals, herbs and antioxidants), autohemotherapy, hydrogen peroxide, hyperthermia, and hyperbaric oxygen or other treatments that increase oxygenation. It also includes supporting the adrenal system, the optimization of the gastrointestinal system, and supporting the mental aspects (spiritual, emotional and psychological) that are so vital in cancer treatment. Also critical in this stage is the restoration of hope.
Step 3- Repair
Rebuild and stimulate the immune system (immune modulation)
This step focuses on rebuilding and repairing the patient’s compromised immune system. Dr. Buttar has a very precise regimen which utilizes highly specific immune modulating poly-peptide analogs to accomplish this goal. It is important to remember that if cancer exists in the body, by definition the immune system is damaged. Therefore, it becomes essential to repair the immune system and “upregulate” it to the point that it can begin to naturally address the issue of the cancer on its own.
Step 4- Identify
Target acquisition of the cancer (AARSOV)
This step is used as a specific method of acquisition of the cancer by the now repaired and reinitiated immune system that was previously damaged and not functioning properly. Dr. Buttar refers to this technique with the acronym “AARSOTA,” which stands for “Autogenous Antigen Receptor Specific Oncogenic Target Acquisition.” Essentially, it’s a method by which the body is enabled to identify the cancer as being foreign and allows the immune system to move against the cancer.
As an example, human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) and alpha feto protein (AFP) are non- specific markers of cancer, but they are also markers of pregnancy. The fetus is growing inside a woman’s body but is foreign. Why doesn’t the immune system fight against the fetus? Because these markers (HCG and AFP) allow the body to know that this growing organism should not be attacked. However, cancer, cells are able to mimic a fetus by releasing the same markers. Dr. Buttar developed AARSOTA as a means to overcome this “cloaking” device that cancer uses to fool the immune system into leaving it alone. The AARSOTA allows the body’s immune system to identify the “signature” of the cancer and begin fighting it.
Step 5- Maintain
Sustain changes achieved with the first four steps
Oftentimes, cancer patients revert to their old habits and fail to follow through on the important aspects of their cancer protocol; thus, the cancer returns. The changes initiated in the first four steps must be sustained; otherwise, the cancer will come back. Dr. Buttar’s fifth step focuses on maintaining the progress which has been accomplished in the first four steps and keeping the cancer at bay… permanently.
