When we look back in years to come, I think Ty Bollinger’s The Truth About Cancer, Ultimate LIVE Symposium 2016 will seem like a pivotal milestone. I have never lectured before knowing that I am being watched by more than half a million subscribers online! (could be well over a million and, of course, when the replays appear, it will definitely surpass even that estimate). At one point, I learned, there were 15,000 viewers just on “chat” alone (internet savvies will know what that means). There were over 40 speakers of all stripes: good, poor delivery, dogmatic, self-serving and just out-and-out BRILLIANT! (Guess which group I was in!) If there was any downside to this intellectual fact-fest it was that i ...[click to continue]
Do you have problems from fatty liver disease? Are you sure? The liver isn’t as interesting to most people as the brain or the heart but, with the help of your kidneys, it removes 99% of the toxins inside you. Your liver prevents the pollutants from the food you eat, the air you breathe, and waste from overwhelming your system and shutting you down permanently.

What is Fatty Liver Disease?

There are two types of fatty liver. The first is alcoholic liver disease (ALD) that results from abuse of alcohol. Contrary to popular belief, you do not have to be a lifetime heavy drinker to damage your liver with alcohol. One night of “binge” drinking can damage this crucial organ. Your ris ...[click to continue]
Late last year (November) I came across a very strange report. The story itself is fairly fascinating but the implications are even more so. Imagine cancer being transferred from a parasite to the human body! In this case the man had HIV (a whole argument in itself, whether that has anything to do with AIDS). The point being that this may potentially happen a lot—but that a competent immune system will suppress it, before anything bad ever happens. See, this is a whole model of cancer; it’s called the “surveillance model”, meaning the immune system is constantly scanning for rogue cells and pathogens and will destroy whatever it finds, before there’s even a problem. That’s why you will remember me writing often ...[click to continue]
No matter your age, protecting your brain health should be a priority. I firmly believe that if parents make this a primary goal in their children’s early childhood, we can turn the tide on the epidemic of neurodegenerative disease. Yes, preserving cognitive function is more of a pressing topic to people over the age of 60 (as are most diseases and conditions) but there’s no reason to wait until damage is already done! You can actively fight against cognitive decline at every age to lower your risk right now.

I’ve just completed a moderate-sized but very needed book on the Psychology Of Cancer (How We Get It; How We Fight It; and What It Can Teach Us). You’ll be able to read it soon. Meantime, here is a tasty sample of what it has to offer... It’s all about the impact of negative psychological events on our psyche and how that can lead to a breakdown in health. Bad things lead to bad things, like a wound leading to a scar. We are, in a certain sense, defined by our most traumatic experiences. We can, at times, soar to the heights and feel great; a truly joyful dimension of Being. But these wonderful enhanced spiritual moments don’t seem to last. They are very wonderful but ephemeral and impact our lives very little, compar ...[click to continue]
These days, the reality of cancer seems to be an almost expected part of life. Chances are high that either you or someone you know has dealt with this human epidemic. Any techniques that can keep the #2 killer on the planet from claiming your life should be considered. Nothing should be off the table in a (literal) life or death situation. New cancer discoveries are made all the time but the likelihood that they’re reported (much less legitimately discussed) in either the mainstream media or the medical community are slim.

Ask any “properly trained” medical scientist about bacteria in healthy blood and they will answer that there are none. Blood is essentially sterile. This out-moded science is getting a lot of people killed. Anyone who has ever looked at a LIVE blood sample (freshly taken) under a dark-field microscope will tell you that blood is CRAWLING with micro-organisms. In fact, as my friend Dr. Garry Gordon joked, they are trying to re-cycle us before we are even dead! This is the basis of ridiculous ongoing controversy, like the Raymond Royal Rife story: Rife saw unknown microorganisms he named bacillus-BX. He reckoned this organism was capable of causing cancer. Scientists insist its quackery; there is nothing there! Same with Gasto ...[click to continue]
Too many people these days react with shock if you suggest more sleep. Despite the fact that it’s proven to heal, energize, fight aging, boost immunity, and so much more, it’s ignored as a valid part of your overall healthy lifestyle. Sleep has evolved into some sort of sign one is lazy rather than proactive about their health! I may be shouting into the void here, but I’m going to take the importance of sleep one step further and tell you about the benefits of naps. Yes, naps!

In the 1970s, anyone but an idiot was listening seriously to the emerging evidence that sugar was a major killer. The really smart ones didn’t get at all distracted by the saturated fat story (I’ve campaigned that we need saturated fat for brain health for over 40 years). The major star of this emerging science was a Brit: John Yudkin, founding Professor of the Department of Nutrition at Queen Elizabeth College, London. He tackled the sugar issue head on, with a sensational book, with an equally sensational title (“Pure, White and Deadly” 1972). pure-white-sugar-conspiracy ...[click to continue]
Ginger (Zingiber officinale) has a long and illustrious history. Indigenous to southeast Asia, this close relative of turmeric remains a common ingredient in Asian and Indian recipes, an excellent addition to teas, and is even featured in many specialty candies. The benefits of ginger are far more than culinary. For thousands of years, the powerful medicinal qualities of the ginger rhizome (root) have been well documented. The most recognizable ginger at your local market is yellow but the root can also be red or white. Its’ pungent aroma and spicy flavor make the root spice easy to identify by smell or taste. The flowering spice has few calories and ranks very low on the glycemic index. The substance in ginger th ...[click to continue]
Fungi are a rum bunch: we can eat some and they are delicious (cèpes, chanterelles, truffles); others are deadly (Deathcap (Amanita phalloides), Avenging angel, Autumn skullcap). Some even make fabulous medicines (Lion’s mane, Turkey tail, Shiitake and Maitake).

Learning how to take care of your emotional health is absolutely crucial to your physical and mental well-being. Unfortunately, the value of a strong emotional foundation is usually the least of our concerns, the last to receive needed attention.

Is Happiness Truly Attainable?

While “thinking happy thoughts” is based in good intentions, true happiness requires more work and commitment. After all, being honestly content with your own life is worth it! Material possessions are also not the answer. Having desired possessions is certainly nice but it’s more about the road you took to have those things. What you achieved to make it possible. It may sound trite but knowing how to taking care of your emotion ...[click to continue]
