This episode is all about living longer and healthier with cancer. As an expert in cancer health, Dr. Bouchard is on a mission to help patients understand cancer’s real root and how gut health, genetics, and environmental factors impact tumor growth. Conventional cancer therapy treatments and standard medical care are ill-equipped to focus on anything beyond the tumor’s size. While traditionally trained doctors are great at acute care (like surgeries), they are not trained to upregulate the immune system and rebalance the complex endocrine system. In this podcast, we cover:
- Why there will never be a magic cure for cancer
- The correlation between heavy metals and cancer
- How to rebalance your hormones
- Strategies for detoxifying your life
- Implementing stool testing for gut health
- How diet plays a part in balancing hormones and repairing gut health
- About blasting your system with nutrition during your eating window
Lori’s passion for cancer started at the age of 12 – she began to get sick all the time. Lori’s mom started her on fasting and supplements. In high school, Lori never really got sick. When she did begin to feel ill, Lori would step back from food and let her body rest. Now, people are always looking for a quick remedy. However, our bodies are designed to heal themselves. We need to let our bodies do the work that they are created to do. When people can’t get their iron up, they most likely have a heavy metal issue. As soon as those people do a heavy metal protocol, their immune system and blood count will start to perk up. Getting rid of a tumor isn’t enough. A cancer patient needs to fix the parts of their body that were feeding their tumor. Did you know that melatonin isn’t just for sleep? It helps with hormone regulation. Make sure to get your hormones tested, so you know how to balance them. For instance, when you have depression, it’s vital to see if it’s coming from low testosterone or low estrogen. Helping with insulin levels and stress will be one way to rebalance your hormones. Eighty percent of your hormone rebalancing can be done without a hormone test. Then, Lori gives strategies for detoxing the chemicals out of your life. Take it one day at a time. Look at your cookware – what can you get rid of that will lower your exposure to aluminum? The next day, check out your shampoo and find out if there are sulfates. There is hope for you in this toxic world. Do things one at a time as you are integrating a toxic-free lifestyle. Plus, Lori says to stop worrying if you lose track of your eating habits for a meal – it’s going to make your high stress! Later, Lori speaks about the importance of getting a stool test. A lot of cancers are stemmed from certain bacteria. You want to know what kind of lingering infection is in your system, and you’ll want to know what is throwing your system off. Cancer patients will usually have something that is lingering in their system. Clean out your system! Most of us have parasites and harmful bacteria in our bodies. Then, you can decide how to handle your health from there. Stay tuned as Lori talks about blasting your system with nutrients, how to best step into a new program, and why you need more fermented foods in your diet.
