Open Minds: Theories and Treatments for Cancer with Travis Christofferson (August 2016)

Season 6, Episode 37
Available worldwide

In the 1970s, the war on cancer began with a presidential decree from Richard Nixon. Since that time, many theories and treatments have risen. Some are accepted and perpetuated as standard medical practices by the establishment, others have been neglected or rejected for consideration. In exploring the history of cancer, Travis Christofferson brings light to the murky past of cancer research and promotes the resurgence of forgotten but effective treatments. This interview with Regina Meredith was originally webcast August 11, 2016.

Travis Christofferson is a graduate of the Montana State Honors Program in molecular biology with a minor in biochemistry. He is the founder of Single Cause Single Cure and the author of the recently released book, Tripping Over the Truth: The Metabolic Theory of Cancer. The book offers a historical perspective on the emerging metabolic theory of cancer — a theory that contends cancer is precipitated and driven by damage to mitochondria.

Last week Regina interviewed Daniel Sheehan and presumably many of us expected to see the other half of the interview this week. When can we expected it to be released?

There is to be a march to the White House Sunday Aug. 14th to once again awaken the sleeping leaders to the Keshe (plasma free energy technology). They will present the puppet master (Obama) with an actual standalone free energy device (5 KW) . This information was presented to world leaders sometime ago with (unsurprisingly) little to no response.

I am surprised that this site is not literally buzzing about this free energy technology that will absolutely free humanity from corporate dominance. The cure for cancer and all other diseases is now here!

I would love to see Regina interview this great soul!

I felt the author is very knowledgeable and I appreciated the amount of research that went in to compiling his book. However I feel that Regina's view of plant based diets is slanted. I have seen her repeatedly lament about her failure to thrive as a "vegetarian" but who knows why this is so? Did she eat too many processed foods?Was there a lack in balance to her diet? As an interviewer she should remain unbiased on these topics and stop interjecting her opinion unless she is going to provide solid clinical evidence (which there is none) that a vegan/plant based diet is not adequate for humans to thrive. The American Dietitian Association has clearly stated that vegan diets are healthful and prevent certain diseases including cancer.

So I would ask Regina to ask herself why repeatedly she states during interviews (because this is not the first) her personal opinion regarding her individual experience when the data shows otherwise? Because in actuality she discredits herself as a interviewer when she does this.

However, I do think it's exciting that more evidence is now pointed towards nutrition and the mind body connection. I encourage anyone who is battling with poor health or trying to assist a loved one to research Intermittent Fasting and plant based nutrition.

Peace to all.

Many of us are interested in empirical knowledge. Furthermore, many of us watching are interested in Regina Meredith's empirical knowledge. Take it or leave it, the truth is Regina is a dynamic individual who clearly has been chosen by Gaia to do these interviews because she is an engaging, intelligent, and informed individual who brings more to the table for her audience with each interview- which thankfully includes her opinion and vast experience. Personally I don't come to Gaia for robotic interviews devoid of substance, but rather for the educated opinions of their highly qualified hosts and those of their selected guests. Also, check out the other side of fasting before being quick to recommend to anyone as it's not the panacea it's often touted, specifically the rapid weight loss from fasting can cause gallstones in as short as a three month period. Diet is a highly individual topic and the more people share without prejudice, the more those seeking knowledge will have to experiment with. It sounds like you have an agenda you'd like to push for her audience with the fasting and plant based diet links, however, you may need your own show for that.

Great post!

My understanding is that a Ketogenic diet slows down the growth of the cancer and that is great but... I wish you guys would have elaborated on the whole paleo vs. vegan vs. vegetarian thing. The studies show that less meat means less cancer right? A Ketogenic diet can also be done in a vegan way can it not? Any comments would be appreciated.

Thanks a lot and cheers to good health!

Thank you Regina for being such a diligent researcher and interviewer. This was really impressive. I appreciated learning more about the broad swatch of cancer treatment history and how we have gotten into such a mess of stagnation, bureaucracy and control. And hearing about some of the brave and dedicated practitioners who have battled the cumbersome system to try and figure this out. Great interview. Kudos to Mr. Christofferson on his focus to assist with the shift in this very needed area!

Great infor. thank you

So Dr. Adkins was right - ketogenic diet is the way to go.

rosaluna, posted on August 11, 2016

Wow - opens a lot of new avenues of research for better care and treatment of cancers of all kinds. Thanks for this great interview. We will definitely buy Christofferson's book and read further on the topic.

Regina you are such a super researcher and interviewer. Your vast knowledge on a myriad of subjects makes for all of your interviews enthralling!

Wonderful information..of course hyperbaric chamber with the other therapies mentioned, brilliant! Thank you, thank you!!

Such an important show! Regina, as your name implies you are the queen of necessary, light-bringing information. Thank you to Travis Christofferson for such hard work and diligence. You are blessings to the world.

that has been clinically proven over the past 15 years to increase oxygen uptake in the mitochondria by a whopping 30% in just 8 minutes with no side-effects. It's called BEMER, and it's five patented signal sequences delivered comfortably are officially being developed for NASA space suits. See more here:

Will take a look at this, appreciate the link.

lynn19, posted on August 11, 2016

It was mentioned that mitochondria live in the red blood cells; what he does not share is that they do their work exclusively in the micro circulatory network - which capillaries make up very nearly three-quarters of your entire blood supply system - and which is the exclusive area where the BEMER signal performs its magic.
Here's a short video of how the tech works:
I mention that the effect is 12-16 hrs. so two 8-min. sessions daily keep you in the 'zone' to utilize mitochondrial function to the body's highest potential. Unfortunately, if you're 60 when you begin regular use, studies do not show that your cells will eventually return to half that. However, it does foster the best outcome of whatever health situation encountered by making more oxygen available to the cells. What condition is not improved with 30% more oxygen? And who would not want to push a button by the bed in your own home to have more energy and awake refreshed from a good night's sleep - with no side effects? Best from Lynn
