How OraSal (Salicinium) Works

Changing the cellular environment to stop fermentive diseases

By Thomas S. Lee NMD, APH

Every normal cell in the body takes in glucose and oxygen from the blood to produce energy needed to perform its function.  This process is called respiration, an aerobic process where energy for the cell is produced from fuels and units of power are created as Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP).

The first stage of respiration—glycolysis—uses glucose.  The second stage of respiration is fueled by oxygen.  The important things to know about these two ways of making energy are that:

  • Glycolysis takes place in the cytoplasm—the liquid part of the cell.  Aerobic respiration takes place in the cell's mitochondria.

  • Glycolysis is part of both aerobic and anaerobic respiration.

  • Unlike other types of respiration, glycolysis does not require oxygen.

  • Glycolysis splits glucose, a six-carbon compound, into two pyruvate molecules, each of which has three carbons.

  • In glycolysis, a cell will use two units of energy as ATP, to gain back four in return.

  • Glycolysis in the Krebs Cycle yields two ATP units, while if oxygen is available, the electron transport chain part of that cycle produces 34 units of ATP.

Sugar alone as a fuel is far less efficient than sugar plus oxygen.  The process that makes energy from sugar without oxygen is known as fermentation.  Fermentation in the body is associated with an environment that is high in blood sugar and lower in oxygen, and with various disease states that we want to avoid, including cancer.  The diseases of fermentation cause great suffering and untimely death, so it's important to understand what they are and how to treat them.

Fermentation may occur in conditions of high sugar and low oxygen, along with moisture, darkness, and warmth.  That could take place in a vat of beer, on a piece of building material, or inside the bloodstream or a cancer cell.

Fermentation processes involve anaerobic organisms (those that live in low-oxygen environments), and a person can become diseased by infection by these organisms if the body environment is conducive to their growth.  Some diseases of fermentation that you might recognize are Candida albicans, athlete’s foot, fungal infections of the lung or other tissues, and all cancerous tumors.

OraSal is a micro-encapsulated version of Salicinium.™  The Salicinium molecule has been proven to behave inside the cell in a way that can stop the first phase of respiration (glycolysis) without harming the oxygen stage of normal cell respiration.  Remember that while glycolysis is less efficient, it is the only type of respiration available to a cancerous cell.


This is interesting for those treating cancer because we now have a material that can knock out a fermenting cell, such as a cancer or a fungus, without harming the neighboring healthy cells.

Salicinium and OraSal have proven able to precisely target fermenting cells.  However, the proper use of these products requires that the right amount and right form of this molecule are presented to the most important tissues and cells that are undergoing fermentive and neoplastic changes.  Both the cellular metabolism of the patient and the biological effects of Salicinium must be understood in applying the protocols that have been developed to keep it safe and effective.

Most of the conventional technology of diagnosis and imaging of a disease process is still valuable, but now the most toxic and invasive technologies such as chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery can be scaled down.  This is because targeting only the unhealthy cells for treatment allows the patient's own immune system to regain control and maintain its normal healthy defenses.

When various conditions such as chronic physical or mental stress create a bodily environment that favors fermentation—that is, one which is anaerobic with higher blood sugar levels and various possible internal or environmental toxins present—the cells involved adapt and become dependent upon fermentation.  These changed cells produce only five percent as much ATP or energy as they formerly did.  They now ferment all simple sugars—which includes almost any type of sugar.  It is believed that these modified ("bad") cells have the ability to develop 19 times the number of sugar receptors on their surfaces as normal cells.

Nagalase is an enzyme which has the ability to completely shut down the localized immune macrophage, whose job is to destroy any cell that has been harmed or become dysfunctional.  When oxygen is returned to the cell and aerobic respiration resumes, the cell may return to normal health.  However, if the cell has been damaged and fails to return to aerobic respiration, it must become a functioning anaerobe, deriving its energy from glycolysis.  Nagalase enzyme activity continues to suppress the immune system and protect the anaerobic cancer cell.

Salicinium, after binding to NAD+, causes the cell stop making nagalase.  This lets the macrophages resume their healthy protective functions.  Without nagalase protection, the cancer or fermentive cell is now uncloaked from the view of the healthy macrophage.

Salicinium does not "kill" or "cure" fermenting cells—only the immune system can do that.  Salicinium does, however, help the immune system return to a functional state.  Once inside a diseased cell, it only impairs the anaerobic stage of glycolysis.  This targets the effect to only fermentive cells such as cancers.

Salicinium can be used an adjunct to conventional chemotherapy because it doesn't interfere with the function of any other medicine or normal metabolic process.  One advantage to using Salicinium with chemotherapy is that the chemotherapy medicines can be reduced to a small fraction (10-15 percent) of the usual amount.  This is probably due to the targeting function described previously.

Because this innovative medicine is an intelligent complement to many well-informed strategies of treating cancers and fungal infections, it's worth looking into it and the recommended protocols for its use.  Salicinium has no known side effects beyond the primary actions described in this article.  This medicine will become widely popular and available as its effects become more widely known.  We hope the medical community will investigate it further and help to share their findings with a world population that desperately needs some effective solutions for the scourge of cancer.

Note:  Salicinium is administered via intravenous (IV) drip at several registered cancer clinics in the United States.  OraSal is the encapsulated form of Salicinium, and OraSal is offered online in the NaturoDoc Store here.  For further information about these products, please contact NaturoDoc.
