WOB is Optimal

A most dramatic placebo effect has been reported by Dr. Bruno Klopfer, a researcher involved in the testing of the drug  Krebiozen. In  1950, Krebiozen had received sensational national publicity as a “cure” for cancer and was being tested by the American Medical Association (AMA) and the US Food and drug administration (FDA).

One of Dr. Klopfer's patients had lymphosarcoma, a generalized far-advanced malignancy involving the lymph nodes. The patient had huge tumor masses throughout his body and was in such desperate physical condition that he frequently had to take oxygen  by mask, and fluid had to be removed from his chest every two days. When the patient discovered that Dr. Klopfer was involved in research on Krebiozen, he begged to be given Krebiozen treatments. Dr Klopfer did so, and the patient’s recovery was startling. Within a short time the tumors had shrunk dramatically and the patient was able to resume a normal life, including flying a private plane.

Then as AMA and FDA reports of the negative results of Krebiozen started being publicized, the patient took a dramatic turn to the worse. Thinking the circumstances extreme enough to justify unusual measures, Klopfer, told his patient that he obtained a new, super-refined, double-strength Krebiozen, that would produce better results. Actually, the injections Klopfer gave were simply sterile water.. Yet the patient’s recovery was even more remarkable.. Once again the tumor masses melted, chest fluid vanished, and he became ambulatory and went back to flying. The patient remained symptoms-free for two months.  The patient’s belief alone, independent of the value of the medication, produced his recovery.

Then further stories of the AMA and FDA's tests appeared in press: “Nationwide tests show  Krebiozen  to be worthless drug treatment of cancer.” Within a few days the patient was dead.

An amazing story which is incomprehensible to medicine: "No doctor or scientist, no immunologist, oncologist or psycho-neuro-immunologist can claim to have an even basic understanding of what causes or cures cancers until they are able to fully explain everything that went on inside Dr. Klopfer's patient from the beginning to the shocking end."


And yet the explanation is straight forward, provided one examines it from a different perspective :
1. Most diseases are self-healing. WOB knows how to heal most diseases.
2. Self-healing operates also in cancer. WOB controls cancer
3. The outcome  depends on the intensity of the disease driving agent, and  patient’s (WOB’s) reserves (Health).

WOB and Mind
WOB controls Cancer
Here is the story again.

From its very beginning, WOB controlled lymphosarcoma. All that time, it was in full control of the disease and did not require any assistance from the Mind. WOB was silent. As disease progressed, WOB control loosened, and it  sent to the Mind its first signals for help: Shortness of breath, fever, and weakness. As if saying: "I can't manage any longer, go and get help." At this stage  lymphosarcoma was diagnosed.

Mind serves as interface between WOB and the outside. It supplies WOB with vital resources, like water. When WOB control of water resources loosens, it sends the Mind a message of thirst, as if saying: "I can't manage any longer, go and get water." Besides acting as WOB servant, Mind informs WOB about the  "Outside". In case of danger  it instructs WOB : "Take refuge!" and WOB mobilizes the necessary processes in order to save itself (the body). WOB does not sense danger, nor an imminent death.

Cancer as Disease of the Mind

Some messages  by Mind are initiated by imaginary situations.   Like anxiety, when  Mind warns WOB about a non existing danger and WOB mobilizes its escape mechanism. This condition is called here "Disease of the Mind ".  A similar disease of the mind occurred when lymphosarcoma was diagnosed. Biologically the cancer was not more dangerous than the day before diagnosis, yet the mind informed WOB that: . "We are going to die!", whereupon WOB mobilized its escape mechanism. The diagnosis of lymphosarcoma initiated a disease of the mind which is called  "Cancer of the Mind".
Cancer of the mind is nurtured by the society which regards cancer as the manifestation of Evil.

Now WOB had to deal with two situations: To control lymphosarcoma, and to handle the Cancer of the Mind. It diverted essential resources for controlling  lymphosarcoma, to handle the disease of the Mind, and his condition got worse.

Disease of the Mind


"When the patient discovered that Dr. Klopfer was involved in research on Krebiozen, he begged to be given Krebiozen treatments. Dr Klopfer did so, and the patient's recovery was startling." Krebiozen reduced the intensity of Cancer of the Mind. Now Mind informed WOB: "The danger is over, we are saved:!" WOB directed resources which handled the Cancer of the Mind, to control the lymphosarcoma and the patient recovered.

Cancer of the Mind is a disease caused by Medicine. It is an iatrogenic disease, which is nurtured by a false belief that cancer is an Evil against which the patient is helpless. In reality patient controls his cancer
. Cancer of the Mind hits all patients. It is a deadly stigma. Medicine ought to realize that placebo protects the patient from its folly. Instead, it brands placebo as unethical, and regards Dr. Klopfer's treatment as a fraud.
