It’s taken me a while, but I’ve finally got my head around the Immune System and its role in preventing cancer (thanks to the work of Ty Bollinger and his posse of experts in this field).
Here’s what I discovered:
During an interview with Dr Robert Scott Bell, Ty asked him to talk about how cancer can’t exist if the immune system is functioning properly.
Dr Bell explained how the liver is your main organ of detoxification: to bind, eliminate and excrete solid waste through the colon, and liquid waste through the kidneys.
If the liver isn’t functioning properly the kidneys can’t handle what’s being sent their way, these toxins circulate through the system and the body tries to find somewhere to tuck them.
The body’s main form of interaction with these toxins is through the gastrointestinal tract, the alimentary canal, which is technically a tube that’s on the outside running through the inside of the body starting at the mouth and ending at the anus. This tube carries your outside environment through your body.
Dr Sherri Tenpenny (expert on vaccines) calls this the inside/out phenomenon.
Environmental toxins will have an impact on your microflora (microscopic organisms that exist inside organs), which is the seed of your immune system, as well as the liver, and this flora, when it’s healthy, is good gut ecology.
Dr Veronique Desaulniers tells us:
“80 percent of your immune system is in the mucosal lining of your intestinal tract”
The alimentary canal has a major job on it’s hands keeping everything toxic that enters your mouth from penetrating it on its journey through the body. The only barrier preventing the outside environment from affecting your inside terrain is an epithelial wall.
When this barrier is corrupted through any of the following:
- heavy metals (especially mercury)
the barrier is pierced.
Inflammation is created and you now have a leaky gut. The environment is no longer hospitable for the bacteria resulting in an imbalance in the growth of organisms:
- candida albicans
So many things can go wrong, it’s amazing that we survive at all. This is truly a testament to our designer, that we are created with the ability to withstand so much assault! But, our bodies have their limits… and that’s when they are overwhelmed with toxins and are unable to keep them in check. The imbalanced cells continue to multiply and the immune system no longer has the strength fight them off. The barrier is down.
This is when the immune system is compromised, the gut, along with the liver.
The terrain has to be addressed in order to restore the balance.
In 1908, Elie Metchnikoff (considered the father of modern immunology) won a Nobel Prize for his work with the immune system. He said:
“death begins in the colon”
We need to change the underlying causes!, not just treat the symptoms…
To achieve health on the outside we have to address our health on the inside!
Bob Wright, founder of the American Anti-Cancer Institute (AACI) tells us that “no doctor has ever healed anyone of anything in the history of the world. The immune system heals…. we need to stop dealing with symptoms and start dealing with causation.”
Dr Roby Mitchell (Orthomolecular Medicine Specialist) goes on to say “. a weakened immune system… allows cancer cells to grow better… the one thing that does kill cancer or cure cancer is your immune system.” He adds “the overwhelming majority of physicians who treat cancer… depends solely on the radiation or the chemo and the consequence of that is a weakened immune system. so the very system you are depending on to cure cancer … we killed that off and that’s why so many people with cancer, they die of the treatment rather than the cancer.”
Dr Mitchell continues ” A lot of times you can give chemotherapy and the tumour goes away but you also destroy the immune system and then the cancer comes back with a vengeance; that’s how you get rid of cancer – through your immune system. Through systems that are already within you that have failed. So what we have to do is get them to work again and that difference has made a tremendous difference in the results.”
At the end of this section of Ty’s research he tells us about the American Cancer Society’s website where you can download a document called ‘Cancer Facts and Figures’. It states that 95% of all cancers are caused by environmental toxins.
Environmental toxins invade your body every day, whether through:
- GMO foods
- pesticides on your food
- fluoride in your water, etc
they compromise your immune system and make you more susceptible to cancer.
Hormones play a significant role in the Immune System. I am researching that as we speak and will let you know what I discover… x
