Ty Bollinger: …the immune system. You mentioned
that we need to get adequate protein for the immune system. So if you could, just talk
about the importance of a healthy immune system in preventing cancer and staying healthy.
Dr. Ben Johnson: Oh, when I take on… by the way, what I do is concierge cancer. I
only take on a few patients. And I go to their homes and take care of them there. But the
first thing I do when I get a new patient is – one of the things that I do is, I begin
to unimpede their immune system. Because every cancer patient, their immune system has missed
the cancer. So it has missed it. And so you have to unimpede their immune system. And
then you have to stimulate it back into action because at the end of the day, they will not
survive if their immune system is not really stimulated.
One of the many fallacies of standard cancer care is they just want to kill cancer cells.
Well, that’s nice. But why did you get cancer? Ty Bollinger: Yeah, what was the cause? Dr. Ben Johnson: They never ask that question.
I tell my patients; I encourage them to continue to see their oncologist to give them feedback.
So that as they get well, they will have a witness born to them that other things
work, whereas they [oncologist] know good and well that what they’re doing is not working. But I
say two things that you’ll be amazed at. They’ll never ask “what caused this?” and deal
with that or try to deal with it in any way. It’s just “let’s kill cancer cells.” And
then number two, as you get well, they will never ask you “what did you do?” Because they
don’t want that knowledge because then they’re responsible. So that’s two things that the
doctors will never ask the patient who is getting well from taking herbals and nutritionals
or alternative medical treatment. But you have to unimpede the immune system.
And then you have to stimulate it back in action. Because at the end of the day, without
your immune system working, you will not live. Because, let’s take AIDS patients for a
second. They don’t die from the AIDS virus. They die because their immune system is no
longer able to work. And let’s say you have a bacterial infection. We do not have an antibiotic
that is good enough to kill one hundred percent of the bacteria; any bacteria. This is one
of the many fallacies that we have about medicine and in our worship of medicine. We think “Oh,
antibiotic, it’s gonna kill all these.” No. It might kill 50 percent of the bacteria or
maybe even 60 or 70 percent if it’s a great antibiotic.
But at the end of the day, your immune system has to step up and finish off that other 30
or 40 percent or you won’t live. That’s why AIDS patients die, because we don’t have
an antibiotic good enough to kill any bacteria. We don’t have an antifungal good enough
to kill one hundred percent of any fungi. We don’t have an antiviral good enough to
kill one hundred percent of any virus. So at the end of the day, your immune system
has to step up. So that’s one of the very first things that I do is start working on
the immune system. Because at the end of the day, it’s gotta work if my patient is going
to live. Ty Bollinger: And so without that immune system
functioning, you’re a goner. Dr. Ben Johnson: Yeah, and standard medicine doesn’t even think of it. Doesn’t even address it. Your immune system. What? Ty Bollinger: Yeah, well obviously…. Dr. Ben Johnson: Why does that have anything to do with it?
Ty Bollinger: Right, obviously, they don’t because…. Dr. Ben Johnson: That’s why you got cancer. Ty Bollinger: And that’s why when they prescribe chemo
or radiation, it’s so absurd because they both devastate the immune system.
Dr. Ben Johnson: Well, and that is the extreme Achilles heel of chemo, is it… and radiation… it damages, severely, the only thing that
can possibly save your life — your immune system.
