Preventing Cancer is Like Growing a Garden – Dr. Patrick Quillin

Ty Bollinger: I’ve heard you say that health
is like growing a garden. Why do you compare those two? Dr. Patrick Quillin: Well, if you think about
not everybody in America has access to a garden, but I hope you at
least have some appreciation that—I don’t care if you live in Central Park or near Central
Park in New York City. I’ve been to New York a dozen times and
it’s a beautiful, vibrant city. But go to the nearest botanical gardens and have a look
at nature and have an appreciation for it because when you find a patch of land and you say I want to grow a garden here, the first thing
you’re going to do is take out the weeds and sticks and stones and
detoxify that patch of land. Then you’re going to go in and till it up and make sure
that it has the right levels of nutrients. You’re going to nourish the soil
with, of course, the common agriculture is NPK, nitrogen
phosphorous, potassium. But in real plant botany plants need more like 15 different
nutrients and actually there’s a 112 in the periodic table of elements.
So we’re going to take that piece of land and we’re going to
nourish it with what the plant needs and with what I need because a plant may not need selenium,
but I do. And that’s why we’re going to put it with
soil. So we’re going to nourish the soil then we’re going to put in the
right seeds and inoculate the soil. And then we’re going to water it, pray over it, and
hopefully in two or three months we will have a productive garden that’s
feeding us–the same thing with the human body.
You find a body that’s not well, all kinds of symptoms. We mentioned some of the common
killers in America. And from those symptoms the first thing we
would do is say, we’re going to take you just like that piece of
land. Let’s detoxify you first. Let’s take out the heavy metals, the volatile organic
chemicals. Studies have been done looking at Americans where these
are legitimate labs, FDA approved labs that have looked at
urinary output from a volatile organic chemical, BPA, bisphenol A, is one that’s commonly
found in almost all of us. Flame retardants in almost all of us.
You think, well, how did it get there? You know, the fact is that many
of us have been exposed to frightening levels of chemicals that in many cases are hormone
disruptors. That is they effect the ability of the body to make
male or female hormones, insulin, the many hormones are now
disregulated. So those chemicals, the heavy metals, the toxic burden in the gut, many
of those are causing what’s called autotoxemia. Auto as in self,
toxins in the gut, back to that hundred trillion cells. Those hundred
trillion micro organisms are making—if you’re doing things right they’ll make vitamin
K2 which is an anticancer substance. If you’re doing things right
they’ll make a little bit of gas, as in hydrogen, which actually is
a—will be absorbed into the blood stream and is a powerful antioxidant. They’ll make
a little bit of butyrate, which is such a powerful anti-cancer substance
that its being researched at the National Cancer Institute.
If you’re doing things right, if you eat right, if you don’t drink too much alcohol,
drugs, antibiotics, then you’re going to have a healthy level of bacteria
in the gut and it will make you healthy. If you don’t things right those
organisms start generating their own toxins which are them absorbed into the blood stream.
And if things really get ugly then you might—your intestinal
lumen will become dysfunctional, hyper permeable and now
what you have is what’s supposed to be a screen door that keeps the bugs out. Now we’ve
got tears and rips in it. Now we have micro organisms moving
into the blood stream. Its called bacterial translocation. And now
you have yeast, candida albicans, bacteria, yeast, virus, other organisms that can move
into the blood stream and generate autoimmune diseases, even cancer.
There’s a whole chapter in my book, Beating Cancer with
Nutrition, that talks about is cancer in some cases actually an infection? And that’s
a whole fascinating subject. Back to the business of what does
a garden have to do with our body? Detoxify. The next thing you’re
going to do is you’re going to nourish the soil in us too. Take that patient and make
sure they’re optimally nourished so that we can go in and embrace
that sound byte of a healthy human body is self-regulating and
self-repairing. We want to get the soil doing that and we want to get our body doing it
if we’re optimally nourished. And then we’re going to do the
water and check the pH. pH is an important issue in the human
body as in the soil. Its not just right you’re not going to thrive. Pray over it. Stress
reduction, an important part of healthcare.
I’ve worked with enough patients to know that what you’re eating may not be as important
as what’s eating you–forgiveness, love, tolerance, a mission
in life, people who love you, useful things to do, a good night’s
sleep, all of that down regulates the stress hormones of the 400 different neural peptides
that our brain and body make. We want them moving in the right
direction. Deepak Chopra says it best, “every cell in your body
is eavesdropping into your thoughts.” So if we do it right we talk that garden patch,
we do the same thing in our body, then our body goes back into self-regulating,
self-repairing, and hopefully it comes—and goes into remission from whatever it is that
you had that you went to the doctor for.
