Daughter in law has cancer ,i have been reading about cancer sufferers needing a special diet it seems meat of any kind is not allowed including poultry and fish,all kings of sugar is out of the diet ...stevia is ok...also no dairy products or refined flour .

It does not seem to leave much else except vegetables ,even fruit which of course has lots of natural sugars in them are not alloud...

Does anyone have any ideas what i can give her when the family come to dinner ,not going to be very nice if rest of family is tucking into roast dinner and pudding and she is having to drink vegetable smoothies.

Shelled hemp seed added with quinoa for meat substitutes. There's various recipies to chose from, such as patties to added into salads. Not saying that's a cure(thought some speculate it can help), but rather nutrition wise offers a lot. Many other nuts and seeds should be included in, such as flax seeds and pecans and walnuts that have ellagic acid* and brazil nuts. That of course, if there's no allergy to them.
ellagic acid* with it's anti cancer properties is also in raspberries, pomegranates and strawberries.

Hi, very sorry to hear this.

As a start, I would recommend a book called "Cancer Free" by Bill Henderson. I think its up to the 4th edition (pdf can be found online).

Hes not a medical expert though I think the latest edition has been co-authored with a doc.

When his wife had cancer, he set out to find a natural cure and presents his conclusions.

In essence, he recommends an organic vegetarian diet. No sugar, refined or otherwise, even fruits and grains (carbs, complex carbs).

Also recommends barley pills or something else which will raise the body's pH, the idea that cancer can only survive in an acidic environment.

Even if its not a "cure", its a very healthy wait to eat and not harmful.

Best of luck. Thoughts and prayers.

Diet for many might be the cure.
What we are eating could certainly be killing us.

The guy in the article went back to greece. Ate fresh food and drank lots of wine.
And look where he's at now.

www.nytimes.com...



One day in 1976, Moraitis felt short of breath. Climbing stairs was a chore; he had to quit working midday. After X-rays, his doctor concluded that Moraitis had lung cancer. As he recalls, nine other doctors confirmed the diagnosis. They gave him nine months to live. He was in his mid-60s.

Moraitis considered staying in America and seeking aggressive cancer treatment at a local hospital. That way, he could also be close to his adult children. But he decided instead to return to Ikaria, where he could be buried with his ancestors in a cemetery shaded by oak trees that overlooked the Aegean Sea. He figured a funeral in the United States would cost thousands, a traditional Ikarian one only $200, leaving more of his retirement savings for his wife, Elpiniki. Moraitis and Elpiniki moved in with his elderly parents, into a tiny, whitewashed house on two acres of stepped vineyards near Evdilos, on the north side of Ikaria. At first, he spent his days in bed, as his mother and wife tended to him. He reconnected with his faith. On Sunday mornings, he hobbled up the hill to a tiny Greek Orthodox chapel where his grandfather once served as a priest. When his childhood friends discovered that he had moved back, they started showing up every afternoon. They’d talk for hours, an activity that invariably involved a bottle or two of locally produced wine. I might as well die happy, he thought.

In the ensuing months, something strange happened. He says he started to feel stronger. One day, feeling ambitious, he planted some vegetables in the garden. He didn’t expect to live to harvest them, but he enjoyed being in the sunshine, breathing the ocean air. Elpiniki could enjoy the fresh vegetables after he was gone.

Six months came and went. Moraitis didn’t die. Instead, he reaped his garden and, feeling emboldened, cleaned up the family vineyard as well. Easing himself into the island routine, he woke up when he felt like it, worked in the vineyards until midafternoon, made himself lunch and then took a long nap. In the evenings, he often walked to the local tavern, where he played dominoes past midnight. The years passed. His health continued to improve. He added a couple of rooms to his parents’ home so his children could visit. He built up the vineyard until it produced 400 gallons of wine a year. Today, three and a half decades later, he’s 97 years old — according to an official document he disputes; he says he’s 102 — and cancer-free. He never went through chemotherapy, took drugs or sought therapy of any sort. All he did was move home to Ikaria.

There is something to what Grey posted. My dear Father in law who I loved to pieces recently passed away... almost a year past the expiration date the cancer center gave him. Multiple cancers.. lung, liver, stomach, etc. He was in terrible shape by the time they identified it all. I eat for my heredity... how my ancestors ate and it did me a world of good, so we did the same with him. He was Russian #1 and as a child had a narrow diet of a mishmash of russian/german food in Nebraska. I suggested it, he liked the idea, and he stopped eating grocery store food, fast food, etc. He ate local, fresh and in season.. this included local meats and dairy. Im telling you, it helped him I believe. He got through chemo easier, had a little more energy, manageable issues for much much longer than expected or is the norm.

I wish you the best with this. Its a rough thing when someone you love gets the diagnosis. Hang in there and lean on a few here. There are some amazing cancer SURVIVORS here.

My friend also told me she avoids flour, sugar in all forms, and gluten. She tries to keep her body acidic because her cancer doc told her cancer cannot thrive in an acidic environment. She is terminal now, so it is a mute point with her, but she has been fighting it for 6 years and followed this diet and we was on her 5th year cancer free until she was re-diagnosed in April this year. She now has cancer all through out her body.

I will keep your daughter in my prayers.

I am unsure why you would limit meats. You need protein, and you need variety.

Carbohydrates, however.....reduce those to under 20/day.

My mom beat incurable b cell lymphoma. We gave her only meat and veggies. "Veggies" are not corn, potato, carrot, artichoke, peas....only low carb (green bean, brussels sprouts, tossed greens).

INcrease fat, decrease sugars. It starves most cancer tumors which require tons of sugar.

ETA: if you want to know how to make really good desserts with next to no carbohydrates, U2U me.

The only thing I caution is that quinoa is a grain. It is high in carbohydrates.

You can detect aggessiveness of cancer via a PET scan. In essence, the PET scan detects the metabolism of sugar. The brain and bladder will always be "bright". And so will otumors.

If they detect cancer by looking for metabolizing sugar......

I have been cancer-free for a little over a year after using the traditional methods of chemo and radiation like other members here at ATS. I never went on a special diet. You would have to be extremely diciplined to follow some of those diets and I highly doubt that most people could stick with it long term. Kudos to those who can and have.

I will be praying for your daughter in law and keeping her in my thoughts. Wishing her and the family the strength and courage needed to get through this.
