Scott: Ty, let's say if someone is diagnosed with cancer, I know a lot of cancers are different but when we go to the traditional doctor, we get a sense of panic right away because we're told you got to start this and you got to start this now. Is it true that you can really take some time and think about what your own protocols and therapies are going to be? Because the cancer may have been there for, months if not longer where you don't really have to rush into, into a decision like that to go get surgery tomorrow.
Ty Bollinger: It depends on the type of cancer. So I'm dealing with a,with a friend of mine in New Zealand that's got a brain tumor. That's something you might have to act on quickly but typically I would say that,that people should empower themselves with knowledge which is why I wrote the book so people would have the knowledge and be able to intelligently discuss their cancer with the doctor once they are diagnosed. As opposed to not knowing anything and going into the doctor because in the end you will feel that sense of urgency and you're going to do what the doctor says when he says it. So you got to learn ahead of time and then you can intelligently discuss with the doctor and there, you know there maybe, you maybe in a situation where your whole body is overtaking with cancer and you got to do something quick. Or it maybe a situation where the doctor sees a spot on your leg that might be basal cell and that's not something you should lose a lot of sleep over that night. So it, it depends upon the stage of cancer, it depends on whether you know stage one or stage four.Stage four is the metastasized and it's in your lymph nodes and you better do something quickly there. Not that I'm saying you should go get surgery or you should go get radiation or chemotherapy but if you have stage four cancer that is spread, you better act quickly. I would act quickly within a natural treatment or a couple of natural treatments combined, two or three different herbal supplements combined. But you better act quickly if you have stage four cancer, it's not, nothing to mess around with. So it depends upon the stage of the cancer. I guess the answer to your question is it depends... on the stage of the cancer.
Scott: So along the same lines then, what's your thought on an early diagnosis and going you know if your, if you're 40 years old you need to do this, this and this every year. You know we all have those, those guidelines that we're supposed to do. What are your thoughts on, on doing things like that?
Bollinger: On, you mean going to get...
Scott: It could getting a colon-, colonoscopy or when you're turning 40 and,you know, the, the varying ages of breast to mammograms and things like that. Do we need to be doing that every year and how important is that do you think?
Bollinger: For colonoscopy, you, you, you risk serious, serious problems of perforation with colonoscopies. So you're going to have, you can have numerous medist or medical problems that can be caused from the colonoscopy. Let's look at breast cancer specifically because you mentioned mammograms. Should you go each year to get your mammogram once you get 40,no. There's better, there's better testing alternatives that mammography for, for detecting breast cancer. Thermography is much better, its, it's where they-, the doctor runs cool air over the breast and the cancer cells don't react like normal cells to the cool air and so they'll stay hot. And then the thermogram, the thermography just looks for hot spots in the breast and so after the cool air is run over the breast, the hot spot remains. And thermography can actually detect breast cancer years in advance of mammography. The problem with that is all the money is in mammograms. You look at the money that is generated each year with mammograms is, is astounding. Mammography actually causes cancer because what you're doing with the mammogram, you're radiating the breast, that's radiation. And there had been many studies out there that's showing that certain types of cancer, I think it was the, DCIS which I can't remember the acronym stands for but it's a certain type of breast cancer is increased 300 to 400 percent. Ductal carcinoma in situ, has increased 3 t 400 percent since mammogram started. There, there's, there are numerous studies that had been done to show mammogram has caused cancer. So should you go get your mammogram, I, I'd say no, don't get a mammogram, get a thermogram. But your insurance probably won't pay for it. So mammography causes, it, it's been shown to cause cancer so that's one issue. Another issue with breast cancer is not related on topic, as far as the, the screening but there, there'd been many different studies that have shown that, that one of the focus or one of the causes of breast cancer is bras. Because what's, what's underneath your,your, your. All, all breast cancers start on the edges which right there.
Scott: The wire.
Bollinger:Yeah. The wire. And what's underneath the wire, your lymph nodes, your lymph glands so your lymphatic system is, is one of your primary detox systems in your body. You have your colon, of course you detox to your colon, your skin detox system, and your lymph nodes. Your lymphatic system is a detox system. What happens with women that wear bra, those, the lymph can no longer flow under there so the toxins build up and that's where all breast cancer start. There was a study, there was a book that was written, it was called "Dress To Kill" and it was by two Swedish women that did that did studies on breast, breast cancer in relation to bras. And I believe that it was, if a woman wore a bra 24 hours a day, she had a one in four, one in five chance of breast cancer. Women that wear bras 12 hours a day, only half of the day, it was like one in 15 or 20. Women that almost never wear bras, it was one in 168. That is a pretty good research to show the length between breast cancer and, and bras. And the reason is the, the, the bras that have the wires go right into your lymph nodes and the lymphatic system is no longer able to, the fluid doesn't flow and you're unable to detox.
If you get diagnosed with cancer, do you always have to rush into or be scared into a treatment right away? What about annual screening, is that a good idea? Medical researcher Ty Bollinger talks about how and why it depends on the cancer you have. He also talks about the dangers of mammograms and bras and how they can actually contribute to cancer itself!
