Diarrhea Kills Cancer

By Dr. Tim

Two friends go to lunch. They both have the chicken. The chicken is tainted. They both get violently “ill” with diarrhea, vomiting, fever, and chills. Friend #1 has been to the chiropractic orientation and remembers that symptoms are usually a good thing. So he gets up the nerve, suffers through, and doesn’t take anything. He’s uncomfortable. The chicken is out of his body quickly. His philosophy has become that his body is smart—it knows what to do (especially if it’s aligned, but that’s another story). Friend #2 has very little faith in his body’s innate wisdom and takes a drug to stop the diarrhea and vomiting, and a drug to reduce the fever and chills. He’s comfortable. The chicken goes moves through his body slowly. His philosophy is that his body needs help—it doesn’t know what to do. Let’s shoot ahead 15 years with them repeating this pattern multiple times, which friend has a higher chance of being chronically ill? Which friend has a higher chance of having cancer? Until recently it was just theory, but a recent study has revealed phenomenal insight…

The study, published in an issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences—August 2003, focused on one of the many bacteria that can cause diarrhea, the famous Escherichia coli or E coli (as we know it). Giovanni Pitari and colleagues at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia started their research after noticing that countries where diarrhea is most common have extremely low incidences of colon cancer! They discovered that toxins produced from these bacteria interact with the cells of the colon in such a way that prevents them from being cancerous. E-coli-produced toxins were added to a dish full of dividing cancerous cells. The rapidly dividing cancerous cells slowed their reproductive pace to a crawl! Amazing!

This finding helps explain why colon cancer is a disease of developed countries, and diarrhea as well as other uncomfortable symptoms should many times be welcomed as our friend. I can’t tell you how many people have thanked me and told me how much healthier they are, or their children are, when they take that step of faith and let the body go through it’s natural healing cycles. You can’t walk on water if you don’t get out of the boat! The problem with most drugs is not the side effects. The problem is the effects—they do exactly what they’re designed to do! They trick the body into doing what it doesn’t want to do. God did indeed make our bodies smart. Do we have to wait for proof like this to start trusting? No, but it sure is nice.
