508. Cancer And Cortisol

Transcript Of Today's Episode

Announcer: You're listening to the Doctor Is In podcast, brought to you by martinclinic.com. During the episode, the doctors share a lot of information. As awesome as the info may be, it is not intended to diagnose, cure, treat, or prevent any disease. It's strictly for informational purposes.

Dr. Martin: Well, good morning. Hope you're having a great day here. And we got a nice couple of little studies to look at this [00:00:30] morning and I think you'll find interesting. Two new studies that came out, kind of interesting. Both of them on cancer, I'm going to do a little bit on cancer this morning. But I want to introduce these two studies, they came out very recently. Surprising? I don't know, it depends on your take of things. But this grabbed me and I actually wrote a little bit of a [00:01:00] devotional on it this morning. And here's the headline on the study, the level of toxicity from loneliness is stunning on its effect on cancer. The effects of loneliness is stunning as to its effect on cancer.

So let's talk about that before I introduce the [00:01:30] second study on cancer. Now, I've said this many a time. When you don't think holistically, we've lived in a time where, I've used an expression, we're not thinking past our nose. Now why do I say that? Well, again, the virus ... When am I going to stop talking about that? [00:02:00] I don't know. But you must admit, I've been very consistent in saying this. We focus so much in on the virus, we've given public health officials, unelected, emergency measures that have been going on for over nine months now. And their focus has been on this virus. Of course, they live for that. They go to [00:02:30] school for that, their training is for that. Virus, virus, virus, virus, virus. We got a new virus. What do we do about it? Let's close the world now.

And to them, the virus is more important than anything else, because that's their training. Now, the problem with that, when you don't think holistically, is that a lot of people are going to fall [00:03:00] through the cracks. And I've been saying this for nine months. Remember we've had session, many sessions, the coming tsunami, because we're not thinking past our nose, fear. Well, in this same study, listen to this, in the same study, fear, anxiety, depression. I was talking to you about statistics [00:03:30] in Northern Ontario, in suicides, overdoses amongst young people.

I got an honorary degree, I don't know if you knew this or not, in obituary-ology. I read obituaries everyday. Well, I want to make sure I'm not in it. No, but seriously, I'm fascinated by that. But you know how many young people [00:04:00] are in obituaries, died suddenly. You know how many times that's suicide or overdose? They don't like to talk about it, they really don't. They don't like to talk about it. But since March, just in our hometown, Sudbury, it's averaging one a day, suicide or overdoses, [00:04:30] young people. It's crazy.

Look, there's always been suicides and there are going to be overdoses, but it's like on steroids today because people are meant to be with their families. They're meant to be with other people. You can argue with me if you want, that's fine, but I've been consistent, I've said it. Look, first of all, we miss the elephant in the room [00:05:00] because the only people that get sick from COVID, and I mean really sick, are people that are metabolically unwell, one, and old. It doesn't hit other people so ... Look, I'm not saying that it never happens, I'm just telling you.

Look, for young people, the flu is more dangerous. That's just the fact I'm not negating the virus. I'm not saying that, but I think we made a huge mistake by focusing in only on [00:05:30] that and not looking at the rest of health. And this statistic ought to shock the life out of you, that you get a 26% increase in the risk of cancer if you're lonely, 26%. Smoking won't even increase your cancer 26%, risk of cancer. It's probably close. But think about [00:06:00] that for a minute. Think of what this study is saying.

And by the way, if you have anxiety or depression, your increase in rates of cancer go up 21%. It's worse to be lonely. It's worse to be lonely, but that's holistically looking at things. Because listen, guys, listen, listen, I don't know if this virus is ever going to end, [00:06:30] but there'll be another one. I'm just going to make a prediction. Most of the time I'm wrong and my predictions. You don't want to bring me to Vegas with to bet. But I just want to tell you that I think you'll see that the new people on the top of the food chain in medicine, who are going to be drunk on power, in my opinion, just my opinion, [00:07:00] will be the public health and infectious disease people. Unelected, and I don't know who do they answer to?

This is why I cried out to the Canadian Medical Association. What happened to the pathologist? What happened to the oncologist? What happened to the cardiologist? People are still dying of cancer. [00:07:30] Cancer didn't go away. People are still dying of heart disease. Where did the flu go? Nobody's got it this year. What were they saying in Alberta? I read a statistic the other day, there was four cases of the flu in December. Are you kidding me? But guys, all I'm saying is this, all I'm saying is this, wait [00:08:00] until we see ... Because remember now, remember what I've shown you in the past about cancer. Cancer don't come overnight, cancer don't come overnight. Remember the tip of the ballpoint pen? 99% of all cancers takes five years for cancer to grow to that size, tip of a ballpoint pen.

Ladies, you're never going to find that cancer in your breasts [00:08:30] until it's developed into a lump that you can feel. Well, a lump is a lot bigger than that, for heaven sakes. You see, people think, "Oh, last week, I got the diagnosis of cancer. I felt that in the breast and I went to the doctor and they took a mammogram." And oh, they call you back and they go, "I would like to see you in my ..." Well, not today, because you can't see a doctor because of COVID. They call it you on the phone [00:09:00] or they FaceTime you, and, "Oh, here's the bad news. You got cancer." Well, that cancer had been going on for a long time.

But what loneliness does, what anxiety does, what depression does, and this study has shown it. They shown exactly how it happens. Let me read it to you. Don't take my word for it. Let me read the study and show how this is happening. Because when you're lonely, [00:09:30] you don't realize it. It's very similar to when you're scared. The reaction very similar. You get the drip, drip, drip of cortisol. Remember what cortisol is? Scared. But even when you're lonely, the same hormone is released. The fight or flight. You got a broken heart. You can't see your family. [00:10:00] You can't see your friends. What happens? Cortisol, cortisol. And cortisol suppresses your immune system.

How does it do it? It affects your T-cell activity. Remember your T-cells? Those are your Navy Seals. They're the Navy Seals of your white blood cells. They're the ones that attack cancer. T-cells they come out of your lymphatic system. [00:10:30] They fight bacteria, they fight viruses and they fight cancer cells. T-cells. By the way, you need the sun for T-cells. You need vitamin D for T-cells. Anyway. And then here's another thing it does, according to the study, it affects your B-cells. What are B-cells? You make T-cells and you make B-cells.

Well, B cells [00:11:00] are very much involved in identifying foreign objects like bacteria, like viruses. The problem with B-cells, if they're suppressed, everything that comes into your body ... Your body is so smart, it's unbelievable, it flags it. "Oh, here you come." It's like going across the border. " [00:11:30] Here you are/ let me see your passport." It's amazing. And have you ever crossed the border into the United States or Americans coming across into Canada? As soon as they put your passport in, all your information comes up in a second. You got a record, you're in trouble. You're probably not going be able to cross the border because it comes up immediately and the border guard sees it.

That's what your B-cells do. [00:12:00] I'm just trying to give you an illustration. And your B-cells, they flag it. "Oh, you're a good guy. Oh, you're a bad guy." The problem is when you have high levels of cortisol and you have a broken heart, because you're lonely, you're hurting. Well, physiologically, your T-cell activity goes down and your B- [00:12:30] cells, they don't flag. So a bad cancer cell comes in, usually that's flagged. And the B-cells scream, "Hey, T-cells. We got a foreign invader and he's going to make us sick." So T-cells, the Navy Seal guys, go after it.

But what happens if your B-cell activity is affected? I could go into a whole thing about autoimmune, [00:13:00] because that's how autoimmune occurs. The body doesn't recognize or it over recognizes a foreign agent, the antigen. We call those antigens in medicine. So you get the little [inaudible 00:13:17] there, and when your T-cell activity and your B-cell activity is messed up, you're much more susceptible to those cancer cells growing. And they [00:13:30] grow, grow, grow, 26% more if you're lonely.

Guys, how come no one's talking about that? This is what I've been screaming about. This is why I have to go for a walk after. And if I had one of those stupid Fitbits or something on my wrist, it would be telling me to breathe right now. I get upset, [00:14:00] because we don't think past our noses. "Oh, well, we just got to do this for a short period of time." It was supposed to be two weeks. When they closed gyms, I would say, "Jeepers creepers. That's the last place that should be closed." I just wish I could get an infectious disease doctor and grab their little face for five [00:14:30] seconds and say, "Why are you closing the gyms?" "The virus." No, no, no, no. But what about our immune system? If you have a good immune system, you got nothing to worry about, honey. But nobody talks about it, it drives me insane.

I know I'm preaching to the choir here today, this morning. I know [00:15:00] you're on my side, but for heavens sakes, what's more dangerous to our society, the virus or cancer? Because we're going to see it, guys, I'm telling you, cancer rates ... We're not winning the war on cancer because we're looking for love in all the wrong places, and then ... Here's another thing, here's another thing. I'm just going to say it, it's actually a whole other study. I'll just give you [00:15:30] a little tidbit right now.

You know what happens when you're depressed, anxious or lonely? There's a part in your brain called the cerebral cortex. And it works to keep you away from addictions to sugar. But you know what happens when cortisol is drip, drip, drip, drip, drip, drip? The cerebral cortex don't work like it should. [00:16:00] And you got a center in your brain, the dopamine center in your brain, that says, "You know what? I'm down, I need sugar." I'll tell you guys, this long-term effect, it's so destructive. I just can't emphasize it enough, that 26% lonely increases [00:16:30] your risk of cancer by 26%.

Now I've said this to you many a time. Ladies, ladies, breast cancer, I stress it, breast cancer. It's a trinity of bad, it's a trinity of bad. There's three things that will up your increase, ladies, of breast cancer. And this is why we're not winning the war on cancer, [00:17:00] because I'll just give you breast cancer. One out of 20 women used to die of breast cancer in the 1970s, it's now down to, what, one out of six, one out of seven. One out of five, depending on who you're listening to, but it ain't good. There's a trinity. Write these down. If you take notes, write the trinity down for breast cancer. And I rarely ever seen an exception to this, [00:17:30] ever. And by the way, men prostate cancer and breast cancer, a two-headed coin.

So breast cancer, what is it? The trinity that's out to get you. One, insulin. That's food, that's sugar, that's crappy carbohydrates. You got it? Number one, because cancer needs fuel. [00:18:00] Always remember that, cancer needs fuel. I don't care what kind of cancer it is, it needs fuel. Cancer cells need fuel. And you know what they hitch their wagon to? Sugar. And if you don't believe me, the illustration I use all the time is the PET scan.

I remember telling an oncologist that one time, and they never heard it. They never heard it in all the years they went to medical school. [00:18:30] She said to me, "What?" Well, I said, "If you go down to the cancer center," I said, "Why are you giving [inaudible 00:18:38] and boost? Because you're going to ensure that they die of cancer and you're boosting, ensuring boost. Why are you giving that stuff? It's full of sugar." "I don't know, they need energy. They're not going to eat." This is an oncologist I'm talking to.

I said, "Well, how [00:19:00] does a PET scan work?" "What?" "How does the PET scan work, doc?" "Well, you give them a cup of sugar and they light up like a Christmas tree if they have cancer." Mm-hmm (affirmative), and I rest my case, because I'm the quack. I said, "Well, cancer, it needs fuel." One, got it? Two, you guys know this, and this is for men too, it needs [00:19:30] estrogen. Breast cancer and prostate cancer need estrogen. That's part of that trinity, the unholy trinity. And the third one is cortisol.

Cortisol is not your friend. I just gave you a tremendous example of that. Makes a perfect storm in cancer? A perfect [00:20:00] storm in cancer is insulin, estrogen, which makes you a woman and makes a man a woman too,.as a man's testosterone level goes down, their estrogen levels go up. Unless you're planning on leaving the planet, you're going to be surrounded by xenoestrogens. And this is why, you know me, I have a heart attack just thinking about [00:20:30] all those people with the spray, spray, spray and the clean the hands 75,000 times a day. "Yeah, but you see that'll kill the virus, Dr. Martin." I know, but it'll kill you too. Don't worry about the virus, worry about all that estrogen you're putting on your skin that's going right into your stinking bloodstream. I'm telling you.

Number three, insulin is food, [00:21:00] estrogen is our environment and the world that we live in, plus hormones. And ladies, I don't care if a doctor tells you ... You know that cancer cells? They're not receptive to estrogen. Nah. Yes, they ar, because estrogen makes things grow. They're more than receptive, they're just not hyper receptive like some people's cancer is. But it's receptive [00:21:30] to cancer, I can tell you that right now. And thirdly, cortisol, and we've explained what cortisol does. How it suppresses your natural immunity.

Your body knows how to fight cancer, guys. Your body fights cancer every day, you just don't know it. It sees it coming in, it gets flagged. [00:22:00] Your immune system ... Isn't it unbelievable? Think about that for a minute. It gets flagged. Your body sees a cancer cell, it goes, "You do not belong in here." The border guard, "Get the H out of here." Do you know what I mean? Is this something? But you see why my blood pressure goes up? [00:22:30] And Kathy says, "How do you check for cortisol?" Well, I used to do it in practice every day. And today, you almost got to bring a physician to the dentist and have their teeth drilled without anesthetic for them to even order a testing of cortisol.

And again, I don't even like the blood test, but I don't want to get into that. You have to listen to your own body and realize that your cortisol [00:23:00] levels are high. In this day and age, especially in the world we live in, isn't it true? There's so few that are not being affected. I didn't even bring you the other study. I promise I'll do that at another time. I just had to take a deep breath there. I get wound up guys. I get wound up, because in medicine [00:23:30] it's common sense and they're throwing it out the window to the detriment of our society in the longterm.

Let me just throw something else out too. Now again, if you look at the deaths in 2020, total deaths, all of deaths around the world, it's not higher and it wasn't 2019. It's not. I want you [00:24:00] to take the virus seriously, I do. But I want you to take your immune systems seriously too, even more seriously. And I'm on your side, I really am. I'm on your side.

Tomorrow, question and answer. Question and answer, Thursday tomorrow. [00:24:30] Why? Because Friday's New Year's Day and we'd take a break for the very first day, and then we'll be back supercharged, Lord willing, on Monday. But tomorrow's question and answers, it's not too late to send your questions in. We sure appreciate that. We're getting another big shipment of books and you've made this a big, best seller already. The metabolic reset, [00:25:00] does it work? Yeah, unbelievable. Who's joining us on January 1st for the reset? Put your hand up. And it probably won't be on the first because that Friday, so we'll start next week. So we'll give you a little time to get ready and we're going to do this together. We're going to do the reset together.

Plus [00:25:30] invite your friends and your family and your neighbors, whoever, to join the private Facebook group. We sure appreciate it. We're up to, I can't remember how many thousand now. Thank you for watching on Facebook. We can't get over the response, and the podcast, up to over two million now. Unbelievable, since March.

We love you guys. And [00:26:00] we talk to you soon.
