Hello! When we put up my dad's new menu, we started with the thread from IgnoranceIsntBliss, linked in the OP. It lists many foods on which
studies were made for their effectiveness against cancer.
From there, we looked for the food that was reputed good for the types of cancers my dad had, plus those helping fight cancers in general.
I don't remember everything that was on his list, sorry. It's been almost a year since I did it and since then, he moved with his brother who took
charge of his meals.
Boiled beef is very good, as well as broth made from beef bones. I remember making a couples of blueberry pies. Also, he prepared a liter of water
with baking soda, to help lower his acidity... He took one liter a day.
And as much as possible, we didn't use processed food. We prepared the meals from raw items. You can better control what is in your food, its
quality. One thing he couldn't eat was chocolate 80% pure... Too bitter for him...
My best advice is to look at the list, and find what is appropriate to one's case. Also, look at the general history of the person. As I said
previously, we found that his hips being compressed were major factors in his getting bladder and prostate cancer. His eating habits, that were very
limited in terms of variety, plus his constant exercising made it so that he ended up poisoning himself with toxins his body couldn't eliminate due
And there was is heart problem that complicated things as some foods were causing him troubles, probably because of digestive problems.
I firmly believe that the 5-6 weeks we got to help him nourish his body and help flush some of the toxins before the chemo was the major factor in his
recovery. Any one about to receive chemo should think about that, and talk about it with their doctors.
As I said, if you have already lots of pollutants running free in your body, and that you add the chemo, some of these products are bound to interact
in a harmful way. The contrary could be true, but I don't think it is worth taking the chance.
What do we do before repairing any type of construction? We clean, so the repairing process will hold better. I think we forgot to apply this
mechanism to ourselves, before getting treatments. Of course, you will be asked about possible expositions or about meds you take that can interact
with the chemo. But not about your history, like we did with my dad.
Doing that requires a bit of work, as each individual is unique. That is why I will encourage you to read the mentioned thread, and from there, do
more research about what you will find. A helpful molecule in tomatoes could also be found in a nut, or another fruit, vegetable, or animal organ
good for consumption, aside from usual meat. ( Like livers, kidneys ( we call them rognons
, etc. ) Or a specific specie.
Some veggies won't like that idea but you have to make a simple choice, live or die.
A last thing, we try not to buy pasteurized food, if possible.
