I met Dr. Steve Haltiwanger through David Schmidt, who I interviewed in
BREAKTHROUGH as well as in KNOCKOUT, about their company, LifeWave.
Dr. Haltiwanger had a medical practice for many years, and then in 2000 began
setting up research projects with different companies. At present he works
exclusively with LifeWave, and the relationship between Haltiwanger and
Schmidt is quite a remarkable thing to behold. It is like putting Einstein and his
brother together. Dr. Haltiwanger’s passion is nutritional treatments of
neurological and mental diseases as well as utilizing natural therapies to promote
In his work he also tries to understand the reasons that cancer has formed or
presents itself. He claims there is a lot of information now about how cancer
forms in the body and a great deal of work being done on genetics and the
process by which one inherits a predisposition of the disease. Because an
inclination towards cancer runs in families, genetics is important. Genetic
weaknesses are like a fragile spot in the roof of a building. What usually occurs
is some kind of environmental trigger that comes along and stresses the system,
which in a building causes the roof to collapse or in a person for cancer to occur.

I have spent a lot of time in Dr. Haltiwanger’s company, mostly listening as he
has so much information to share. His ability to explain the extraordinary
functionalities of the healthy human cell and how easily it can become damaged
through poor food choices and lifestyle habits and the connection to cancer will
fascinate you. Enjoy.
SS: Hello, Steve. We are all touched by cancer in some way or another. In
speaking with Dr. Burzynski, he says we get cancer when protective genes are
‘turned off’--as though they were light switches—done through bad lifestyle and
dietary habits, stress, chemicals in our food and environment, toxicity and
declining hormones.
SH: I am not aware of the full implications of Dr. Burzynski’s work, but I do know
that when you have a genetic predisposition for cancer and something happens
where the immune system may be a little bit suppressed for a period of time--as
in a serious virus, pneumonia or bronchitis-- your immune system becomes
compromised and can trigger abnormalities in the cells even down to the DNA
level. Creating cancer by directly damaging the DNA or interfering with DNA
repair is a process called mutagenesis.
SS: So certain things can damage the DNA or the DNA repair mechanisms?

SH: Yes, you can trigger the development of cancer by damaging the DNA
directly with certain types of viruses or even some bacteria. Damage to DNA can
also happen with mutagenic chemicals, or you might be damaged by radiation.
We certainly know that nuclear exposure will damage DNA and x-ray radiation
will damage DNA.
SS: Let’s talk about DNA damage and its connection to cancer from an electronic
point of view. What does a cell do?
SH: A cell is not some static thing that sits there like a bag of chemicals. It’s an
information processing unit. Each cell literally contains all the features of
transmitters, like in electronic communication devices. All cells process
information from other cells in order to coordinate their functions. A signal is
received, say from interaction of a chemical with a cell receptor site (and there
are thousands of these receptors on the surface of every cell), and as a result of
that receptor activation a chemical is allowed to enter the cell, and it’s a normal
chemical; it’s supposed to be there. Our cells are designed to receive that
chemical and then initiate a series of steps, starting with the amplification of the
signal. So there’s a communication system with the receiver and an amplifying
unit and now there’s a signal sent through. Every time there is a chemical
reaction, a movement of electrical charges occurs, which creates an
electromagnetic field change and a specific signal. The end result is many of
these signals get processed down to the cell nucleus which responds by

decoding information from our DNA. Perhaps it’s a message to repair our DNA
or facilitate the production of an enzyme that needs to be replaced.
Cells are constantly talking to each other through electrochemical communication
systems creating local and systemic feedback loops. Each cell continuously
takes in information from other cells, processes this information and then
responds accordingly. Everything that occurs within each cell is either controlled
or influenced by the genetic machinery. Cells are designed to continually
manufacture certain proteins and enzymes, but a mature adult cell just doesn’t
make all proteins; its functions are specialized. If the cell signaling abilities are
compromised, then you’re set up to have a problem with cell malfunction.
SS: Do cells have the intelligence to ask for the right proteins? Is there a signal?
How are these proteins being replaced?
SH: Well, Suzanne, the body is continually breaking down and then rebuilding
itself. Just staying alive is stressful and causes wear and tear, which is catabolic.
Fortunately, the cells have the innate capacity for self repair as long as there is
an available source of energy and essential raw materials. When there is
demand and at the same time there is a shortage of the critical construction
materials needed to make new proteins, the body immediately begins
scavenging materials by breaking down the muscles and burning fat stores for

fuel. Muscle tissue is broken down first because muscle cells are energy hogs,
so the body reduces muscle mass to conserve fuel.
This is why people who go on crazy calorie restricted diets initially lose weight
fast, but soon their weight loss slows dramatically. What has happened is that
they have lost a lot of muscle tissue in addition to some fat. Eventually they stop
the diet because they usually become really tired, irritable, depressed and they
begin having trouble with normal functioning. Now they resume their old eating
habits and they rapidly regain the weight that they have lost, but internally things
have changed or been reset in a bad way.
Because the body has interpreted their recent prolonged low calorie intake as an
indication of starvation, signals have been sent to all the cells by the nervous
system and the glands to slow down energy use. This means the metabolism has
slowed down. In addition, other chemical signals are sent to store all excess food
energy into fat cells so they rapidly put weight back on in the form of fat pads.
Because a lot of muscle has been lost, their overall rate of metabolism is reset
lower; so now it does not take as much food to operate the machinery of the
