Germanium sesquioxide, or organic germanium. is being used orally, topically, and even intravenously in Japan. Research and studies done in Japan make organic germanium one of the most exciting new supplements on the market today. It has been found effective for lung cancer, respiratory failure, leukemia and lymphatic cancers, brain cancers, arthritis, eye diseases, mercury poisoning, liver disease (including hepatitis), osteoporosis, candida albicans, cataracts, heart disease, and in reducing autism. It has pain-relieving, antiviral, and anticancer properties. During pregnancy it helps to prevent conditions of toxemia and helps to insure the health of the baby. In addition, germanium is known to be a rejuvenator and increases stamina, endurance, energy, and heart-muscle tone. When people have taken germanium supplements for major problems, they have also found that minor complaints such as headaches, backaches, corns, and warts have disappeared.
Does this all sound too good to be true?
Some researchers feel that the growth of cancer cells is directly related
to an oxygen deficiency in the cells. With oxygen, cells are aerobic. When
deprived of oxygen, some cells will mutate and become anaerobic. This
means they begin to grow and thrive in the absence of oxygen. This change
in their metabolism makes these cells cancerous.
The research done by Dr. Asai suggests that organic germanium plays a
vital role in stopping the spread of cancer cells. In addition to providing
oxygen, organic germanium also removes excess hydrogen from the blood. This was explained by Dr. Asai as follows:
Now, hydrogen of positive ions [H+] may be regarded as the dust in the
blood. This is generated with carbon dioxide after the combustion of food
taken into the body system for energy. Carbon dioxide is exhaled. The
hydrogen ions combine with oxygen to become water excreted in the form
of urine and sweat. And acid blood means an excess of hydrogen ions in the
blood, which deprives the blood of large quantities of oxygen, causing
oxygen deficiency in the body systems. For this reason, acidosis or acid
blood is considered the very cause of various diseases.
The two important
causes of acidosis are food and mental stress.
Germanium's use in brain diseases and mental functions can also be
explained as follows. The brain uses 20-30% of the total oxygen in the body.
Oxygen reaching the brain is related to blood flow. Germanium helps to
decrease the viscosity (stickiness) of the blood so that it flows better and is
thus able to carry more oxygen to the brain.
