Video Transcript: Suzanne Somers on Chemotherapy, Kale, and Coconut Oil
Editor’s Note: Enjoy this throwback to our A Global Quest 9-part series! In this short interview with Suzanne Somers, we discuss toxic chemotherapy, the pros and cons of fiber-filled veggies, and the power of coconut oil.
Suzanne Somers: People are so ill and the chemical treatments, chemical poisoning. I don’t even like to call it chemotherapy, so that people will really get a sense of, “Oh, I didn’t know I was taking chemical poison. Yeah, that’s what chemotherapy is.”
Ty Bollinger: That is exactly right.
Suzanne Somers: It doesn’t really work. It, you know…
Ty Bollinger: Cancer is not a deficiency of chemotherapy. So you can’t really give a long-term cure for it by treating with chemotherapy. Especially in light of what we talked about today, with the immune system being so key. If the immune system failure is one of the reasons that you are diagnosed, then why are you going to be treated with chemicals that will destroy the immune system further?
Suzanne Somers: Further, right. And on the other hand, why don’t you make a concerted effort to rebuild your immune system? And you can do that through probiotics and healthy fats, and no chemicals.
When your GI tract is shredded like a tire on a freeway, even high fiber vegetables at that point can turn toxic on you until you get things healed. So you have to even be careful about the kinds of vegetables that you take in during that time. And eventually, you can go back to all vegetables. But kale and cabbage, and those gaseous kinds of vegetables, while you have GI distress, is going to aggravate the situation for a while.
Ty Bollinger: Yeah, sorry I’m laughing. One of the dishes that we love, we cook up kale, cabbage, onions and we put a lot of coconut oil and cook them up. And we did that last night. But it does cause some indigestion, if you’re not ready for it.
Suzanne Somers: Yes. You have to be really comfortable with your spouse, because it’s a sort of noisy evening.
Ty Bollinger: Yeah, absolutely.
Suzanne Somers: But it is good. I probably have four spoons of coconut oil, just on its own, during the day because that is so appealing to the intestines. And then I use it in my cooking. Coconut oil is incredible.
In my Suzanne Organic Skincare Line, we have coconut oil in so many of the products. My products are certified ToxicFree®. I don’t know of anybody else who has that; organic. And so certified ToxicFree® means it has to be grown organically, extracted organically, and nothing upwind or downwind of the product can be toxic to contaminate it.
I’m developing a nice little business of people who want high quality cosmetics and skincare and makeup, and don’t want any chemicals. You know, I think about how much lead women have taken in through lipstick over the years. I make lead-free lipstick.
Ty Bollinger: Oh, it is phenomenal. Yeah, it is phenomenal the amount of lead that people have been taking. And I was going to say, my wife is looking for this. So you’ve got another customer.
Suzanne Somers: Oh, go to my website and it is honestly, you know, it sounds self-serving, but it was developed because this is what I wanted. I’ve never used a line of makeup or skincare as good as this. It’s just wonderful. And my skin has gone to a new place. So how nice, coconut oil.
Ty Bollinger: Awesome, yeah, coconut oil is great.
