I'm not really sure why I'm posting this, I was very superstitious before about letting so many people that dislike me know that I'm fighting for my
life. Pretty silly, I know... this isn't for them anyway, though I wish them all well in their own personal lives. I just feel like it this time, I
I'm not a fan of you and we exchanged lots of insults in the past but sympathize with you. I have personnal experience with cancer and understand what
you're going through.
but please spare me the miracle cures and chemo kills stuff, I trust science.
I've chosen to save alternatives for the last resort and will look into all the suggestions that have been posted, I do truly appreciate the kind
place they come from.
The decision is yours and only yours. It is not my policy to put pressure at suggesting something in these situations, but you seem to be well aware
of the prognosis.
If you want some info on the biochemistry involved with such cancer variant (non-small cell but still interesting), here is a good read:
The role of mitochondria in the development and progression of lung cancer
ETA: This link is more specific and suggest ketogenic diet not appropriate:

There are many sides that must be attacked to combat cancer and sadly there exist no magic bullet. Some of my favorites are:
- Blood glucose reduction and minimization of insulin secretion.
- Lactic acid reduction at all cost; ask your surgeon to avoid Lactate Ringer solution during intervention. Lactate promote metastasis. Maybe a
transporter blocker like Quercetin would help. Low carb diet may minimize lactate production (ref. Glucose Paradox).
- Mitochondrial antioxidant like C60 in olive oil (don't laugh at this, it is seriuous stuff). ROS overload in mitochondrion seem central in small
- Some cancer react well to ketogenic diet but other can feed on it, not sure about this one. This cancer come from highly undifferentiated cells so
it is a good guess to think they may not be able to fuel on ketones.
If you choose to goes the carrot juicer way, be aware that ALL carbs will transform into glucose in blood. If you don't believe that cancer cells are
big glucose hog, ask your doc how a PET scan is able to detect cancer activity.
Also be aware that corticosteroid increase considerably blood glucose level and cause insulin resistance.
Good luck to you and keep the fighting attitude.
