Transcript: Dr. David Jockers – What I Would Do If Diagnosed With Colon Cancer
Ty Bollinger: So let me ask you this Dr. J. If you were diagnosed with colon cancer, let’s say, what would you do?
Dr. David Jockers: Well, I will tell you, I mean this does hit home. I didn’t talk about this in the beginning, but early on in my practice I was 28-years-old and all of a sudden I had this big red spot on my nose right here. And the cancer actually that my grandfather had was a melanoma, a metastatic melanoma, so a skin cancer.
And so I knew I was susceptible to something along those lines. I grew up surfing on the beach. So I’ve had a lot of intense sun exposure, probably been burnt way more than I would naturally recommend just really because I didn’t know any better.
And so I knew I was susceptible and at that period of time in my life I was living, number one, with a lot of fear. I had just opened a business. I was in a tremendous amount of debt. I had a lot of people counting on me. There was lots of—you know when you run a business there’s confrontation.
There’s all different types of issues and my nutrition wasn’t excellent. It was great. I would say it was a lot better than most people. It wasn’t excellent. There was a lot of things in my life that were issues.
And so I looked at myself in the mirror and I could see exactly what was developing. And I knew enough to know that that was not normal. Certainly I could have gone to a dermatologist or somebody for a more advanced diagnosis of it, but I really didn’t need that. To me it was a wakeup call.
I think, really for all of us, we’ve got to have eyes to see and ears to hear in our own life. Because ultimately if we’re living in a way that’s just not beneficial to us and the people around us there’s going to be wakeup calls.
And I just took inventory of where I was in my life and I realized that fear was my dominating thought. Fear of failure, fear of letting people down, and I knew I needed to work on myself mentally, emotionally, spiritually.
I looked at my nutrition. I realized, you know what? There was probably way too many carbohydrates in there than there should be. And so I took out the carbohydrates and went keto—ketogenic.
I was over training. I was actually exercising too much. So I really focused on rest, really, really resting my body well because I was in a state of adrenal fatigue. So I really needed to rest effectively. I just took inventory of all the different areas in my life, sort of doing more detox, really trying to detoxify my liver, utilizing some different supplements, some different advanced strategies.
In a matter of two months it completely went away. And so to me it was really just a message that, hey, my body can heal itself. I just need to line up with the right principles.
Certainly I wouldn’t say I was in an advanced state of cancer, but I was looking at something that had the potential to kill me. And, you know, by just heeding that warning; taking inventory of my life, really getting it under check I was able to heal myself naturally.
So I would take the same approach. I would just look at myself and say what areas of my are out of sync with natural order and
what do I need to get in check?
Then I would seek out people with great knowledge, people that share a similar philosophy when it comes to your health and the health of the body as you. So I’d seek out expert opinions. I would research. Obviously, there’s a lot of great websites like yours Ty, where you can find a lot of information.
You have a fantastic book where you can find all kinds of great information out there so you can start applying these strategies. Because clearly I had a little bit of an advantage being a doctor working in this field, I knew where I needed to go to find what I needed.
And so if you’re out there and this is the first time you’ve ever heard this I would highly recommend seeking out the experts,
for example, that are on this panel as well as getting the books, going to the websites that you need to, getting the information you need, finding people that share a similar philosophy, starting to apply either nutrition plans, the supplements, the different advanced strategies, whatever you’re able to do and whatever just feels right in your spirit to do and you know, you do have hope.
I mean there are answers. There are natural answers. And you know, there’s a lot of people that are getting well naturally and you can be one of them.
