Do you have a modern home with the latest gadgets — home security system with cameras, heating and cooling controls through your phone, remote garage opener and remote car starting, and of course internet and TV? Without moving more than a few fingers, you can control your home’s environment and see what is going on all around the inside and outside of your home and even communicate with the outside world. You are the master of your home, able to change its environment at a whim to make yourself comfortable, just by sending and receiving signals.
Welcome to the way you cells operate. From their position in your body, they can signal for changes to their “home”, their local environment. And they receive signals from other cells seeking to make their environment better as well. If they work together, they make both their local environment and the environment of your whole body better. As the saying goes, “If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it, and if one part is honored, all the parts rejoice.” This is how your body is designed to operate.
If you have a “smart home”, you see how everything works together. If there is a problem in one part of your home, such as a fire in the kitchen or an invader trying to break into your home, you see your home system acting to deal with the problem, usually by calling you or local authorities to help. For your cells, the reinforcements to deal with problems are other systems in your body, which are very sophisticated and should work together to return you to normalcy — what we call homeostasis. In your body, your cells use signals like your home does to sound the alarm and get things back to normal.
Cells normally act as a team: while they see things from their own little world, they will respond to signals that work against their own self-interest when your body tells them to. But what happens if they stop interpreting signals correctly, or decide to be selfish and ignore signals that they don’t like? Worse, what if they start sending signals to other cells to help them in their own selfish endeavors? In that case, those cells set up their own little home within your body and make themselves comfortable at your expense — that’s what a cancer stem cell does.
Before all the electronics, homes were not receiving signals. To know what was going on outside, you had to look through a window or actually go outside. Cells, however, only work through signals: they see their outside world through the signals that they receive. When you look at the image from your outdoor or doorbell camera, you are not really seeing the outside world. Instead, you are seeing the result of light that has hit the camera lens, been digitized into a stream of ones and zeros, then reconstructed on a small screen of dots of light which you can then see. Your cells do much the same, only their signals are electromagnetic and biochemical rather than digital pulses. They gather information and act according to their own programming. Your home system can sometimes malfunction, causing false alarms or giving you false readings. If you believe those signals, you then act erroneously to deal with a problem that doesn’t exist. Your cells are in a similar situation, trusting that the signals are right and appropriate, then acting according to those signals.

Environments — big and small
Most homes have central heating and cooling. If you are feeling cold, you turn up the heat for the whole house. That is your macroenvironment. But maybe you don’t want to spend the utility bill to heat your whole house further, so you use a space heater for one room, or just put on a sweater so you can be comfortable — now you are controlling your microenvironment, your immediate surroundings. Your cells respond the same way: to be comfortable, they try to set their microenvironment. If you are healthy, your body is working together so that what is good for those cells is helping your whole body. And the reverse is certainly true: your whole body environment is working to make the microenvironments within your body good. Homeostasis tries to keep all your cells happy and healthy.
When homeostasis fails, alarms go off and cells react. Their reactions are meant to be short-lived, returning your body to normal and shutting off the alarms. When your brain is sending alarms constantly, such as with chronic stress or worry, your cells go to more extreme measures to respond to those signals. At some point, the constant stress signals cause some cells to stop working with your body and switch to survival mode, where they operate to save themselves. They usually take several steps in this deterioration process before becoming cancerous, with each step changing their epigenetic behavior to try to improve their microenvironment.
From cancer’s viewpoint…
Ultimately a cell only knows what its signal receptors are telling it. That means it only sees its microenvironment through these signals. The macroenvironment information comes as signals into the microenvironment. If the macroenvironment is bad, it filters into each microenvironment and then affects individual cells. The same happens in your house: a very hot day will make you somewhat uncomfortable in portions of your home while you try to compensate for the macroenvironment with central air conditioning: you cool the whole house, but you will still have some hot rooms (microenvironments).
As cancer builds its home in your home, it is still in contact with your body’s macroenvironment, but modifies its microenvironment to its benefit. This makes the cancer stronger and more aggressive. Published in Current Cancer Drug Targets, researchers explain how cancer uses signaling between various types of neighboring cells to strengthen itself in the tumor microenvironment: “…reciprocal crosstalk between cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs), extracellular matrix (ECM), hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) intensifies the proliferation capacity of cancer stem cells (CSCs).” All these cells “talk” via biochemical signals, which in a bad microenvironment (which cancer stem cells have learned to adapt to) will further strengthen and support cancer stem cells growth, expansion and migration to other parts of the body.
But that is after the cancer has developed. Before cancer started, the microenvironment surrounding your cells had to have deteriorated, and likely stayed that way for some time. Some of your cells reacted to this by making epigenetic changes that made them hardier, taking on characteristics of stem cells. After enough changes, they essentially have become stem cells, but not normal ones: they are now cancer stem cells. Then they go on to build a tumor home and get even stronger.
Look to the source
Since cells respond to their microenvironment, as they see it through the signals they receive, then the greatest influencer of cell behavior must be the greatest source of signals. By far, that source is the brain. Cells do talk to each other and even themselves, but the majority of the signals comes from the brain, which is the great conductor or director of the body. Signals drive the cells to healthy or unhealthy behavior, and while the immediate physical environment does affect each cell, the brain has a much more powerful signaling impact. To a cell, everything is a signal, whether it be from the microenvironment or from the brain. And the brain is the greatest signaler.
Since your brain is the primary cell signaler, we might want to consider thoughts, which are where these signals originate. Thoughts are in two categories: conscious and subconscious. Subconscious thoughts are everything from signals — breathing, heartbeat, digestion, and every function that keeps your body alive — to dreams, responding to sensory input not requiring conscious consideration, to “muscle-learned” actions like bicycle riding. Conscious thoughts are a small percentage, now believed to be as little as 5%, of your total thoughts.
The subconscious mind is quite different from the conscious. It can truly multitask, handling your breathing, heart rate, and digestion, while controlling muscles to swallow, all the while riding a bicycle; while your conscious mind can only focus on one thing at a time. The subconscious mind only knows the present, and old messages from the past are treated as though they were current. The subconscious does not reason; rather, it just works by signaling. It dreams, yet it is always awake and always producing thoughts. It is habit-based, so that when you reach “subconscious competency” in a skill, you can do it without (conscious) thinking.
Higher, conscious thought does not develop immediately, and an infant is mostly operating subconsciously. This means the infant has the subconscious characteristics just listed: present-focused, all feelings and emotion, and processing everything literally. Without the conscious filter, every message, feeling, and image just gets sucked in without any limitations. As the infant brain develops, these thoughts get on “the ground floor” of the brain. Children are hyper-focused, taking in information rapidly while not necessarily understanding what it all means.
What this all means to us, however, is this: we all have stored messages, most of them from early life, buried in our subconscious where most thought emanates from, which become signals throughout our bodies and these signals can promote health or disease. From messages born in the distant past, the cell’s microenvironment, as observed through signals the cell receives, is being influenced.
Stress and disease
Since signals are the cell’s reality, stress, fear, and worry are some of the worst promoters of disease. Statistical studies show many links between ongoing stress and disease. In one such study linking stress to cancer, published in Frontiers in Oncology, researchers from the Cancer Research Institute, Central South University, Changsha, China in cooperation with the Department of Medicine, Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX reviewed many studies between stress and different types of cancer. They sum up their review with this statement: “Recent studies have shown that chronic stress can induce tumorigenesis and promote cancer development.” Besides lung, prostate, breast, gastric, and skin cancer links to stress, their studies also find stress promotes insomnia, cardiovascular diseases, gastrointestinal disorders, and of course mental illness which also indirectly promotes an environment that induces tumorigenesis.
Perhaps the question to ask is, “what disease doesn’t chronic stress promote?” Another question might be, “am I stressed?” Since most thoughts are subconscious, how could you answer that question? Yet the answer can determine your level of health. Fortunately there are markers in the body, and information available through brain imaging and brain mapping.
Dr. Nemec’s Review
It is absolutely amazing that this colony of cells called “you”, made up of 100 trillion cells, all works together in harmony or homeostasis. This alone is a miracle of God.
Let’s put this on a physical perspective. There are presently about 8 billion people on the planet. This is less than 1% of the cells in your body. Of these 100 trillion cells, almost all of the time they work together as one, perfectly balanced in this homeostasis. To understand the magnitude of this communication, imagine every single person on the planet working together for the common good of the whole. This has never occurred in our history, except for very briefly in the beginning. It is nearly impossible for a town to work 100% together, let alone a city, state, country, or the whole world.
Why can’t we work together as one as the body does almost all of the time? It is because we have self-agendas and priorities, set higher than the group agenda and priority. This was never meant to be— we were always to work together as one as is modeled in the body. So for the world population called your body of 100 trillion cells to work as one, there are a few prerequisites:
First, every decision made by every single cell has to be for the common good of the whole, not just for the good of the cell itself.
Second, being selfless at the cellular level is the highest priority, so that it can receive the messages from the leader, and not filter them through self-priority or agenda.
Third, when they receive these messages — without thinking — they must act immediately as the message commands. This is critical for the body to stay in balance. It’s all in timing, and each second over 100,000 reactions are occurring at the cellular level, so could you imagine the chaos if any of these three rules are broken.
The macroenvironment is the environment in the whole body, and that consists of what it is exposed to with the environment that is being made around it: with the air it is breathing, the water it’s drinking, the food it’s eating, the exercise and movement it’s doing, the sleep that it’s getting, and most importantly, the thoughts it’s thinking. All these factors send messages from the macroenvironment to the microenvironment, which is that which surrounds the individual cells. So if you stay in a negative macroenvironment, it will eventually produce a negative microenvironment at the cellular level.
It is important to understand this. Cells are not inherently selfish; if they were, you would’ve died at an early age of disease. So what causes cancer and all other diseases? The macroenvironment which influences the microenvironment. And of all the factors listed, which one is the most important, which has the highest authority? It is the mind and the thoughts — both subconscious thoughts and conscious thoughts.
Why is this? Because thoughts are being produced constantly, either subconsciously or consciously. Psychologists have said that only 5% of your thoughts are conscious while 95% are subconscious and controlling the cells of your body. Studies have shown that you have up to 80,000 thoughts consciously per day. In one day there are 84,600 seconds, so this means approximately every second you are consciously thinking about something, but this is only 5%, the rest is the subconscious mind influence.
What does this mean? This means that the communication to the cells comes from the subconscious mind, first and foremost. These are the stored programs of your life; this is 95% of the influence.
Second, communication to the cells comes from the conscious mind memories — these are the stored and remembered conscious programs, but that’s only still 5% of the cell’s influence.
So a subconscious stored program beginning between age 0-6 is much more controlling of cell function than even a remembered stored conscious program that happened after age 6.
Third source of cell communication comes from conscious thoughts which happen approximately once per second. So what you think, subconsciously most importantly, and consciously is producing continual signaling to the cells; this is why your mind controls your body and controls your cells.
So how do you develop cancer? Is it the air you breathe? Yes. Is it the water you drink? Yes. Is it the food you eat? Very much yes. Is it the amount of exercise and sleep that you get? Yes. But all of those combine to only 10% of the signals to the cells, while the other 90% come from the subconscious and conscious thought.
So how does disease begin? It begins as soon as you enter this world and your subconscious mind starts developing programs of how to live in a broken world. Then added to this after the age of six are the conscious programs that further store information about what this broken world is doing to you and your mind. So you can imagine what kind of messages your mind gives your brain, and your brain transmits to your cells when your mind has been programmed with “I am not good enough” or ” I am not worth being loved enough.” Your mind tries to detach or separate from the environment in order to protect itself from more pain and more hurt. Those programs are written on the hard drive of your brain.
At Revolution New Medicine® we’ve spent 40 years researching the mind, brain, emotion, body connection. We can absolutely say with 100% certainty that nobody gets a disease, especially cancer, without subconscious and conscious programming sending out incorrect messages to the cells. That’s why our Revolution New Medicine Protocol® is based on 3-D brain imaging, brain mapping and unique treatment to release these programs at the subconscious and conscious level, then re-imaging and remapping to confirm the imbalances have been resolved and the programs have been released. We also address all other factors that contribute to the environment at the cellular level, including air, oxygen, water, food, sleep, exercise, detoxification, and most importantly prayer, meditation, and stillness.
By addressing the subconscious programming, conscious programming, and all the physical factors, we make a new environment that promotes healing and health and restores a selfless communication pathway from mind to brain to the emotions and to the cells. This is the only way to heal and be in the highest level of health. There is no other way: every other attempt is just a drop in the ocean.
So in summary, cancer stem cells form from the environment — the messages they receive from the subconscious programs, the conscious programs, the conscious thoughts, and the lifestyle factors mentioned. When you balance these all of these, that’s how you heal the root cause of all disease. Cancer stem cells (which make all the other cancer cells in the body) are just your normal stem cells (which make all the other cells) trying to adapt to the messages of self-centeredness and self-protection coming from the macroenvironment of the mind. Change the messages — change the food, water, air, the amount you sleep and move, and you will see cancer stem cells can revert back to normal stem cells producing normal healthy cells, because now they are receiving the proper signal of “all for one”, instead of mixed messages. This is the answer to all disease.
