Beetroot, Oxalates, Parasites and Cancer Cells
Benefits of Raw Foods (which includes the raw beet juice)While oxalates are generally considered a negative factor in foods for human consumption, they may also have health advantages. Oxalate can trigger a burst of beneficial phagocyte or white cell production that helps fight microorganisms and foreign particles in the body, according to researcher Mahmut Caliskan at the Mustafa Kernal University Department of Biology in Turkey. Foods rich in oxalate are also full of other nutrients that may be lost in cooking. Antioxidants, B vitamins and vitamin C are dissolved into cooking water when high-oxalate vegetables like spinach or sweet potatoes are boiled, according to the University of Idaho. Individuals unconcerned about oxalate intake may benefit from eating high-oxalate foods raw.

I have reason to believe that the 42 day juice feasting on raw beet juice helped Nanay a lot, particularly leading her into remission. Now all the pieces of the puzzles are coming together. Raw beet juice have enough oxalate and oxalic acid which promotes the profileration of phagocytes. There are several forms of phagocytes, one of them is macrophages, which I have already blogged about last year (macrophage eating cancer cells). The problem with macrophage or phagocytes is that they need to be activated by some enzymes. It is suggested in this study that oxalate/oxalic acids in beet roots causes a burst (meaning activating) the phagocytes (which includes the macrophages). Once activated this phagocytes start to eat foreign bodies (including bacteria, worms and cancer cells). How wonderful is that? Food that activates our own immune system to fight foreign invaders.
Dr. Hulda Clark’s bowel protocol includes taking Betaine HCL a supplement extracted from beet root. Why beet root of all ingredients? She probably do not know it, but beet root is rich in oxalate/oxalic acid, so its very effective in dealing with parasites.
There were also anectodes in Curezone, that tells of people expelling worms after fasting on green juice (meaning raw vegetables- even those that are low in oxalic acid), like romaine lettuce juice. Gerson therapy consists of lots and lots of green juice. Gerson probably knew by instinct that alkalizing greens help cancer patients, but at that time did not see the correlation between oxalic acid and phagocytes yet.
Maybe the reason why Dr. Hulda Clark thinks that cancer is caused by parasites is because, all the food that kills parasites seems to kill cancer cells too. But what they dont realize is that the phagocytes have a role to play in this. GRanulocytes eat larger parasites like worms. While macrophages, eat cancer cells. Some people on herbal parasite cleanse, thought their clease was not successful when they dont expel worms. COuld it be that the worms have already been digested by the granulocytes so when they pass them, its no longer distinguishable and are only bits and pieces of what they once was.
The earliest mention of oxalic acid as a benefit for human health, probably belongs to Doctor Norman Walker. In his book “Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices” he states: “Raw oxalic acid is one of the important elements needed to maintain the tone of, and to stimulate peristalsis.”
In the book “Oxalic Acid in Biology and Medicine” Albert Hodgkinson stated that: “A mean value of 288mcg of anhydrous oxalic acid/100ml was reported for normal human blood” 17
In Turkey, the scientists discovered that in animals oxalate can promote a rapid increase in white blood cells: “Recent studies indicate that the levels of oxalate are too high for the substance to only be an end-product of the metabolism in animals. Therefore, it has been suggested that there could be an oxalate oxidase pathway in animals, which uses oxalate to produce hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), which could than be used to promote a “burst” of phagocytes, white blood cells that engulf and break down foreign particles, cell debris, and disease-producing micro-organisms. 18
Dr. Supriya Yadav from the Agharkar Research Institute, India, reported that “oxalic acid when combined with zinc sulphate and other salts was able to significantly inhibit the growth of E.coli.” 19
Colonel Joe Hart of Arkansas has been granted three patents for the application of oxalic acid for treatment of cancer, bacterial and viral infections, and vascular diseases.

Jennifer Prescott 20 after her own investigation concluded that oxalic acid is the cure for cancer: “Research reveals there is one common denominator in the foods known as great antioxidants. They are all high in oxalic acid.”
“Oxalic acid is needed by our body for many functions and plays an important role in colon health, so much so that when it is not received through the diet, the body synthesizes it from ascorbic acid.” 21
