Global Health News Episode #26 | TTAC Goes to Asia | Vaccine News

The number one cause of death is
cancer in Japan. It’s way high. Not just old people – you know, elder people,
younger people too. Yeah, I mean here at the Cancer Control Society
meeting, we see a lot of young people that are cancer patients. We’re going to interview a couple of them
later, but not elderly. They’re young people. Young people, yes. Have you had anybody in your own family personally
affected by cancer? Ah yes, my own father died when I was one
because of stomach cancer. And my mother passed away a couple years ago
with lung cancer. I’m so sorry to hear that. But you know not just my parents. I’ve met a lot of people. Well, we share that because I lost both of
my mother and father to cancer, too. So yeah, I’m sorry to hear that. So, so many people get cancer. Is that part of the reason that you’re doing
what you’re doing now with the Cancer Control Society because of your parents? Probably, yeah, I think so, but you know I’m
very much interested in health – physical health and mental health for a long time. I don’t really know why, but that’s my interest
for a long time – for about 30 years or over 30 years. Do you think that our nutritional choices
have anything to do with the cancer rates? I think so. We can’t deny that, right? We just can’t. And you know, long time ago Dr. Max Gerson,
his Gerson therapy worked very well 60 or 70 years ago. Then, Dr. William Kelley, his therapy was
amazing! Mostly diet and nutrition and some other stuff
– detoxification, but their way worked quite well! Yeah Gerson therapy is primarily juicing many
many many times a day, right? I think they juice 13 times a day for those
that have cancer. Carrot juice and vegetable juice, but it works
very well I believe. Yeah, yeah it does. Diet is very key. Diet and nutrition. I interviewed the patients that have shared
their success with Gerson, but yeah diet and nutrition are key in both of those protocols,
aren’t they? Yes, pretty much in Japan, too yeah know? Well, what is the typical perspective of a
Japanese doctor here about the impact that nutrition can have on cancer treatment? These are regular doctors? Yeah, the normal doctors. I believe they began to know about it, but
the medical system doesn’t allow them to work on the nutrition, I think just like the US. A lot of Japanese medical doctors are becoming
aware of that, I believe. So now it’s changing in Japan. Did you learn much about nutrition in medical
school in the western program? Nutrition? No, but a lot about herbal medicine. Herbal medicine? Yes, because herbal medicine is the center
of Chinese medicine. So the western medical school in China teaches
herbal medicine? Yes. Okay! Because we put a lot of time into learning
about the herbs because the herbs in Chinese society, they sync herbs and food together. Combine food, combine herbs into the everyday
diet. How the herb and food influence the patient
or influence a normal subject or healthy subject a well is very common knowledge. So the medical students that get out of the
education in China would be considered western medicine – they’re still taught about herbs
in China which is very interesting. It’s very different than the US. Yes, it’s very different because in western
medicine we think there are many different nutrition components in the food, but in Chinese
culture we don’t think so. We think how this food can influence people
about different thinking processes or different point of view. Because in western medicine it’s like light
particles or molecules so when the component or compound inside of light is very important,
but in Chinese culture we don’t talk about the particles. We talk about a wave, just about light. There is a very long history and argument
about light. Is light a particle or a wave? From Newton to Einstein to quantum mechanics,
they finally think light is both particle and wave, but nowadays the Chinese medicine
the western medicine argue everyday just like light. Chinese medicine thinks the medical field
is the wave, but in western medicine they force the particle (argument). They’re different point of views. So in Chinese medicine all of the students
all of the doctors like me with this wave thinking to talk about nutrition, the food,
ther herbs and the treatment. They combine together, so just like me integration
of Chinese and western medicine will use both views. Particle view and wave view. Initially what do you believe is it that sets
the Philippines a part? What is unique here about the approach to
cancer? Oh ok, we do have what you call traditional
medicine and I suppose you know that each place has something that’s different from
them and so that really isn’t calculated with us. We usually go to our elders who believe in
what we call our native healers. When I was younger we didn’t go to doctors
we went to all these people that were not doctors and so that is still in our genes
and in our history. But you know modern medicine has crept into
our lifestyle. They think it’s easier, they think it’s the
best, but we don’t have I think we’re the only country or one of the countries that
has a law – the TAMA law – traditional and alternative medicine act which mandated that
the government study all of these traditional modalities and standardize them. So, we’re very lucky to have that. So the TAMA law, the traditional and alternative
medicine act, that basically says that you can study everything. You can study all of the traditional things
and you can get certified for doing that and it’s going to be legal. So it’s not the, I guess the word traditional
has been kind of changed because traditional medicine really is the herbs and the traditional
forms of healing are the things that have been here for traditions, right? Isn’t that really traditional? But that tradition, so that’s part of it,
but we do have some things that are unique like we have something that’s just like a
sauna, but using herbs and hot water and cloth around you. This is really the expert of Dr. [Indecipherable]
and he can really tell us all about that. Then we have a form of healing massage, then
of course all of the other herbs and then we have manipulations that like the equivalent
of your chiropractor. They’re so good they just take your pulse
and then they say ok it’s your lungs or it’s your brain or whatever. So they’re excellent and we do have that and
now being grouped together or you know their practices are standardized, but they don’t
just teach to everyone they teach to whoever they think is blessed to learn the knowledge. It’s very much like the Indians and the Americas
you know they have healers there. What’s the best ways to prevent cancer? To get the knowledge because you have to listen
to get the right knowledge. People will be giving you a lot of information,
a lot of “eat this” or “eat that”, but you must ask why. Okay? As a doctor and as a Christian I believe that
nature is God’s provision for healing. So we find healing in nature. I feel this strange feeling that we are all
the same like the cells and the nutrients. So when a cancer patient suffers, the first
thing is that they need nutrients. You know, they have a lot of deficiencies
because of chemo.They are deficient of nutrients so people need sufficient nutrients so the
body has a system that can heal. This internal system so we cannot do anything
to sacrifice this system just for the sake of treating anything. So I find that this is important. No matter what you do, keep your immune system
intact. Then you have a good chance to fight cancer,
chronic illnesses, even diabetics have potential! It can be worse you know? We are taught hypertension, diabetics, all
of these are incurable diseases. We have to take medicine for life?! But to me that’s a lie you know? I was taught – I was brainwashed, but I saw
my patients getting better and not worse! I’m not seeing their diabetes or hypertension,
but somehow when they have cancer they change your diet. They just change your lifestyle and the blood
pressure just drops! I never asked them to stop because they took
the hypertension medication they’re going to get the side effects so they have to stop. I am their doctor who put them on to the
medication, but asked them to stop. Eventually, they were cured. So Dr. Vijay, we just talked to Dr. [Indecipherable] and one
of the things he mentioned was that chemotherapy can actually enrich cancer stem cells. Do you have any idea why because I’ve heard
that before, I’ve read scientific literature that it does that, but I don’t understand
how. I think cells by design are able to withstand
various insults and they are designed to deal with poisons. We are exposed to poisons all the time and
we are built pretty robust. The stem cells are very robust, whether they
are normal stem cells or cancer stem cells. We see these with chemotherapy and regular
therapy although they are such toxic chemicals, the chemotherapy kills a lot of actively dividing
cells, but yet we still have enough stem cells reserved to re-heal, repair and regenerate
normal tissue. Cancer stem cells behave pretty much in the
same way. They have internal mechanisms, enzyme systems
that can disable chemotherapy. They also have mechanisms where they can pump
out chemotherapy out, out of your cells. So there you are, chemotherapy gets to the
cancer stem cells, but they are just you know, shoo-ing them away or neutralizing them by
unique metabolic pathways. And as we continuously expose them to chemotherapy
they become resistant to this and one of the reasons why chemotherapy can become a problem
after working so well initially is the development of resistance. That’s a great explanation, that explains
why cancer comes back after chemotherapy frequently because you killed a lot of the cancer, but
you didn’t kill enough of those stem cells so that it couldn’t regenerate the cancer. Absolutely, because the way chemotherapy works
it is targeting actively dividing cells. Stem cells are generally dormant until they
are called into action, until certain signals pull them in and traffic them to where there
is damage. So, they remain dormant. So, dormant cells are not, you know, effected
by the chemotherapy because they are designed to target actively dividing DNA. A patient that I saw of marrow suppression,
when there’s bone marrow suppression, and he was severely anemic and he had a very interesting
story. He had a story and he wouldn’t react to a
situation, so when the family, whatever problems the family faced – His wife use to work and
his son used to work, if his wife says this is the problem he would present a
very indifferent attitude to the whole situation. It might look as if he didn’t care, but it
was an indifference throughout his life. So I asked him, I said, weren’t you aware
of the situation in your family that your family faced? And this very important when you talk about
integration – integration with the patient, integration in the family setting and that’s
why in malignancy in cancer a family doctor is very important. I still have patients today who leave a super
specialty hospital with a complex report of malignancies and they stand outside the
door of the hospital and they give me a call and ask the family physician, “Doc is it malignant? Doc is it benign?” They want the statement of a family doctor,
that’s why family medicine is very important in India we take a great deal of effort to
preserve this concept of family medicine. So this gentleman was indifferent and this kind of indifference was understood so
he was prescribed a homeopathic remedy along with mistletoe. And after his case got cured, I was invited
to Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 2013 to share these stories and it was
a unique experience for me to present my work of thought patterns in cancer patients
3 years before the cancer and malignancy develops. What are
the thought patterns? What is the mind-body connection? What is it? And every physician – It is the duty of every
physician to find out the mind and the body and the spirit To look at the patient as a whole.

  1. in Japan, there is also atomic pollution from WWII and Fukushima. They have been affecting them through the generations since WWII atomic bombs primary genetic and then carry over >

  2. SO interesting! Can't wait to see it. Went to Tokyo once when son lived on the US Navy base, and yes, I wouldn't want to be there without an interpreter! LOL Very few people speak English, very few signs in English. But of course, they had Wendy's, McDonald's, Arby's, etc and the people in there knew a little English. Too bad they've let our western foods into their country! Also, know a girl who, at 12 almost died from a vaccine and now, at 20, though a beautiful young lady, has to live with a feeding tube, balance problems, and other problems. She is trying to be a light to others on some anti-vaccine websites online.

  3. In the Philippines you should really check out further Dr. Farrah Agustin-Bunch Natural Medical Center (she is on FB), also Dr Jose Ray Mondejar in Cebu City…amazing homeopathic, holistic doctors.
