Anyone want to talk about food? Sugar is bad, fat is good, ok to eat Grassfed meat and stay away from processed food. Dairy and grains are suppose to be bad, now Lectins are bad too. Is Keto diet the answer to help fight tumor growth. Should we supplement with vitamin c, vitamin D3. Drink lots of green tea, and ginger turmeric tea. Stay completely away from alcohol or moderation. Any thoughts?
someone also suggested a drop of frankenscense under tongue.
https://www.dietitians.ca/ is reliable site and your cancer centre should have someone to refer you to.
Best of luck for sure and update your DR team.
Vernon BC. I’ll keep the reference in mind.
Have you started Keto?
I have been on a Keto diet since june 2018, mostly. I found it hard during chemo, my stomach wanted what it wanted. There is a good web site about Keto diets: dietdoctor.com
There are good recipes on the site, you can become a member but you don't have to: lots of info without a membership.
Let me know how it is going for you!
Reach out to Valerie Dinh, the Regional Manager for OCC for Quebec. She may have some resources to recommend or thoughts on the subject. Worst case, you should know each other anyway. [email protected]
I agree whole heartedly with your words regarding diet and cancer as a symptom.
She lives in Oakville , but also very close to Mississauga. Would you be able to recommend someone ? Or are you offering your services over the phone ?
Thanks so much for sharing your mom’s story - it’s very encouraging !
This is very interesting and helpful information for anyone seeking enhancements to the traditional approach to treatment. That said, if you entertain any of these alternatives, please please ensure your oncologist is aware and participates in an overall holistic approach. There are many non-prescription medications, vitamins and foods that can seriously affect efficacy of some of the more traditional treatments and specifically some of the trial medications.
I am delighted to hear of your great progress! Well done. I know it is very challenging, and I have total respect for conventional oncology. To me, for my mother, it seems to be a combined effort that continues to give her success. Oncology is ever changing, and I know that everyone is biochemically different: what works for one doesn’t always work for others. However, I have great faith believing that it is the individual who sits in the “Driver’s Seat”, and is the one who determines how it all works out. I think for my mother, her deep belief in herself, her perseverance against all odds, combined with “super charging” her body with all the whole nutrients it needs to fight, plus good conventional care, pulled her through. I particularly focused my mother on a combination of many vitamins and whole foods- introducing Curcumin and others. She always ate well: egg salad sandwiches, lovingly made by my Dad ( who learned from her!), once a month: beef liver, things like that. Even if she felt nauseous- she ate. All I can say, Bella Donna, she’ll be 90 yrs old next May. She was 83 at her diagnosis, with a top Oncologist who predicted, “grim prognosis”. They didn’t even recommend she try Chemo- she had 6 rounds of it, and I sat next to her through each one. There is a great book to read, that I have and had during her treatment: Dr. Russell Blaylock: “Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients”, and I found it very inspiring. You have a terrific attitude and though it seems like you are “ on your own”, know that Faith keeps you company. I am wishing you the very best.
