All cancer cells start out as normal cells. Today we’re going to dive into what causes normal cells to convert to cancer cells.

Your mitochondria take food and convert it into ATP, which is the energy currency of the cells.

Your mitochondria also store electrons. In the mitochondria, you have an electron transport chain. This mechanism is involved in converting food into ATP—it contributes to energy.

The fourth complex is the last phase of the electron transportation mechanism. Dysfunction with the fourth complex triggers the conversion of a normal cell to a cancer cell.

Once a cell has converted into a cancer cell, it can no longer produce oxygen. At this point, as a survival mechanism, your body adapts to survive without this oxygen.

This is a new viewpoint on cancer—that cancer cells are essentially cells that adapt to survive in an environment without oxygen. Another word for a lack of oxygen is hypoxia.

There is also a gene involved in the conversion of a normal cell to a cancer cell called hypoxia-inducible factor 1 alpha (HIF-1 alpha). It’s also involved in hypoxia. So a lack of oxygen is involved in the switching mechanism of a normal cell to a cancer cell.

I’ve talked in other videos about different cancer strategies and things to include in your cancer protocol. But, there is an additional thing that you should consider adding to this protocol, and it’s called methylene blue.

Methylene blue is like a sponge that soaks up electrons, and it specifically targets that fourth complex and bypasses it so you can make oxygen and ATP again.

Methylene blue may be beneficial in low doses and should be diluted in water. You would also want the USP-grade methylene blue. Talk to your doctor about methylene blue for cancer.

    Really glad you have mentioned this. I think its used for mitochondrial dysfunction also.

    • Dr. Eric Berg DC on April 28, 2023 at 11:15 am

      No problem. Thanks for watching the video.

  3. Vurt_NexusMods on April 28, 2023 at 10:24 am

    I would not take that many drops to start with, it can affect your breathing which is uncomfortable / scary (for me 12 drops is bordering on too much and it gave me a headache, tightness in the chest – side effects when taking too much). I’d start with maybe 3 drops. i would also rather take 3-5 drops maybe 4 times over the day, though don’t take it to close to bed time.
    If you remember, a couple used this as protection against Covid (this was quite early on), they just got some cheap brand which wasn’t pure, and the husband died of an overdose. So be careful and make sure it’s pure + absolutely don’t take too much.

    For anyone who is concerned, i know my experience might not be the same for others but it might help you decide to take it, i have been taking methylene blue regularly for the past year and a half, the greatest thing i have discovered in my life tbh, great levels of energy (waay more than what coffee does but with 0 addiction), 0 side effects, helped me to treat corona virus, helped my family with their energy levels, i experimented with high dosages (85mg) at once, and i can say that made my blood pressure rise up and feel my head pounding, so make sure to follow the dosage dr berg mentioned since it causes no high blood pressure. Thanks dr.berg for your research and spread of great heath info ♥️
    Edit : also wanted to quickly mention how it improved my performance in football like 100%, faster reactions and never get tired.

    • Limbo on April 28, 2023 at 1:55 pm

      Wow that’s amazing I just started taking mine but it’s 1% and I had only been doing 3 drops max twice a day but I guess I will increase it a bit more while I wait for the book to come today!

    • mooner Lyn on April 28, 2023 at 2:40 pm

      Where to find M Blue ? Why didnts doctors talk about 😞

    • Mango mesh on April 28, 2023 at 4:34 pm

      It is expensive.

    • mooner Lyn on April 28, 2023 at 4:39 pm

      @Limbo which book ??? Tell me about. ❤️Thanks

    • catamandow1 on April 28, 2023 at 6:52 pm

      hi , what is the brand of methylene blue you are taking ?

  5. Thixuan Levu on April 28, 2023 at 10:34 am

    Great analysis.Thank you so much and so much Doctor Berg for daily information,they are very useful for me.Since i have watched your videos my health is getting better and my weight is steady ❤

    Oh thank you Dr Berg!! You’re always so in tune with all health concerns but this one is especially helpful for me and I’ll be checking into it ASAP!! It’s amazing just through you and several other people and in studying and understanding cancer that I exactly knew what you were talking about in the Warburg Effect!! Thank you again!!

  8. M. H. Ploni on April 28, 2023 at 10:58 am

    I find myself trusting Dr. Berg’s advice to a degree that, quite frankly, startles me . . . yet I am peacefully confident and grateful.

    Just for clarification, and for those who aren’t familiar with taking MB:

    I believe when Dr Berg says ‘take 20 drops’, he’s talking about a 1% solution (1gram of USP grade MB powder dissolved in 100ml of water). It’s usually best to put these drops in some water (approx. 200ml) or another drink when taking MB, and is recommended to divide these into 2 doses – morning and evening.

    Start with 10 drops per dose (20 drops per day), then do 20 drops per dose next week, then on the 3rd week try 30 drops per dose. These are still considered very low doses, as shown below:

    The dosage in most clinical trials is between 1-2mg of MB per kg of body weight, but be careful not to exceed this, as MB can start to have the opposite effect described by Dr Berg – it can start to rob electrons from atoms, causing oxidative stress and other problems.

    Assuming a 1% solution, a person weighing, say, 70kg would take 140 drops per day when targeting 1mg per kg because there is only 0.5mg of MB per drop when you mix/buy your 1% solution. For 2mg/kg you would naturally double this.

    Better still, buy a book on MB and read up for your own peace of mind – they are cheap and easy to find on major online retailers.

    Compass Laboratory and CZTL are two manufacturers that are well regarded – but please always check the lab reports for impurities, as ‘USP’ just means it has met the standards of one oversight body in one country (The USA). Ideally, you want things like Arsenic to be as low, or lower than what is accepted by your country’s environmental standards agency, so we’re looking at as close to, or less than, 10 parts per billion for the US and UK, though this will vary by contaminant.

    • SC Dealey on April 28, 2023 at 2:07 pm

      Better than the video… Thanks for the info. Lately Berg has seemed extremely long winded and scared to actually give choices for recommendations, as you did. It put zero “liability” on you, but at least pointed us in a direction.
      Excellent and appreciated!!!

      I find myself going to the end of the videos now to get to the meat. Maybe you should think about doing videos and make them as he use to… Good info with pointers for actual resolve and next steps.

      Thanks again! 😊

    • bastifully on April 28, 2023 at 4:49 pm

      half life time of MB is 5 hours so with taking 140 drops for a 70 kg person you would have an actual doses of 2mg/kg body weight ,this already is on the high end.

      ​@Dr. Eric Berg DC Dr. B, would methylene blue help severe small fiber neuropathy and Sjogren’s syndrome?

    I’ve been taking Methylene blue for about a year. I’ve experienced significant joint pain, muscle pain, neurological pain, dizziness, to name a few symptoms. I believe the methyl blue abated a lot of the symptoms. No side effects.

    • Someone You Don’t Know on April 28, 2023 at 12:21 pm

      I’m confused. The way your comment is written it kind of seems like the methylene blue caused these symptoms.

    • Nicole Endres on April 28, 2023 at 1:44 pm

      Sounds like detox or herxing

    • Yo Ya on April 28, 2023 at 3:37 pm

      @Someone You Don’t Know The standard of writing is really quite shocking.

    • DJM on April 28, 2023 at 7:16 pm

      @Someone You Don’t Know no abated means decrease the intensity. Symptoms had for years. After trialling a lot of things I started the M.B. With good results.

  13. mikeofallon on April 28, 2023 at 12:00 pm

    About 10 years ago I read about this new approach to understanding cancer as cells changing to survive in a low oxygen (and acidic) environment. Thanks Dr Berg for your research that fills in so much detail!

    • Robert McCabe on April 28, 2023 at 6:20 pm

      And fenbendazole as well.

  14. Mark Scott on April 28, 2023 at 12:29 pm

    Thanks, Doc! Fascinating presentation. I look forward to checking out Methylene Blue.

    I am hearing that Borax or Boric Acid has also had some positive effects on prostate cancer. I would be curious as to your view.

    Gotta be one of the best channels on YouTube hands down!

  15. Sarah M on April 28, 2023 at 12:45 pm

    I have been putting 10 drops PHARMACEUTICAL GRADE MB in about a half cup of Zevia 3X day (per Dr Mercola) for 2 weeks. The Zevia does a good job masking the bitterness and I actually enjoy it. I think it has increased my exercise recovery time, which makes sense. And I think it has increased my overall energy and motivation. Time will tell.

  16. Richiepipes89 on April 28, 2023 at 1:14 pm

    Huge W video. MB is the ONLY THING, that made a dent in my fight against bartonella/lyme/mold/Parasites. I honestly felt like superman on that stuff, and my muscle testing doctor also supported my claims with testing. Cant recommend MB enough.

    • Willetta White on April 28, 2023 at 2:38 pm

      What brand?

  17. Madhavi dasari on April 28, 2023 at 1:24 pm

    Thanks for the info doc 🎉. Will try this. Your next video on the subject is very good too. I underwent total thyroidectomy and RAI in 2017 Dec due to papillary carcinoma of thyroid. Been struggling with candida ever since and I survive(d) by being on a strict gluten free, sugar free, dairy free and root vegetable avoiding diet. Took Candex, Kyolic aged garlic for Candida. I still do when it flares up – dermatitis, vaginal candidiasis etc. But mostly my calcium gets depleted – lower back ache n plantar fascia (post covid shot). You are so right about probiotics / sauerkraut etc. I would get acid reflux if I eat white rice or gassy with dals/ lentils. Had to be on a severely restricted diet. After watching your videos in recent past, started taking 1. Sea Kelp for lumps in breast (fibrocystic breast), cyst on gall bladder and Ovary. 2. Started taking Benfotiamine 250 mg twice a day, which helped in reducing frequent urination. 3. Started taking TUDCA for fatty lever. 4. Started taking potassium citrate 100 mg twice a day for fatigue in lower legs due to light exercise and discontinued the Stamlo 5 mg I started taking post supplementation with iron. Ferritin 24. Tested positive for mycotoxins in Real Time labs test. Your videos are life saving Dr. Eric Berg. God bless you abundantly ❤🎉

    This week I’ve been reading the Mitochondriac Manifesto and I’ve been learning about electrons and the ETC, to name a few things, And now you are sharing a video on the same concepts!! It’s like we are lifting each other up, using each other to raise our collective consciousness. For everyone on this path, thank you!! 🥰 for everyone on this path, you are more integral than you may know!

  19. Aleesia on April 28, 2023 at 2:57 pm

    How lucky are we to being living at the same time as Dr. Berg? ❤

  20. Pure Spirit Guided on April 28, 2023 at 5:15 pm

    So I am curious about time frames, Do you need to keep taking Methylene Blue to experience its benefits? Or does it permanently alter the cell? This will reveal if Methylene Blue cures/enhances disease or treats the symptoms. How long do you recommend taking Methylene Blue for? Thanks for sharing your knowledge to help people make more informed decisions about their health.
