Thank you so much for your comments.
Regarding the diet:
The day my dad was FINALLY released from the hospital, we went out and bought ...
Rice and vegetable steamer
REVERSE OSMOSIS WATER (5 bottles to start)
All ORGANIC fruits and Veggies
We started juicing all kinds of crazy concoctions for him (like I said before, he is a trooper, some of the juice tasted really NASTY)
My mom went to see a TCM doctor and brought home three shopping bags full of herbs, or as my dad said something that looked like it had been swept up from the backyard LOL!
We boiled the herbs and made my dad this tea which he was only able to stomach for two days before it made him sick to his stomach.
Next we went to the health food store. At out local health food Store "Garlic Grove" my mother explained the situation to the owner who proceeded to tell her the story of Josip Gabre, a man from our city who beat cancer, she gave my mother his book to borrow titled "How I Beat Cancer" and explained that she worked directly with him.
We both read the book and decided my dad should be on this Taheebo/Pau d'arco Tea from Brazil. he started immediately.
The following week his diabetes was completely under control, and his bili rubin level had dropped significantly.
So at this point he was on a strict Vegan diet and the tea.
Our major problem then, was that my dad was still losing weight and that was causing him to be extremelt tired and miserable.
We read more books, visited more web site and had to make a descision as to which road to take regarding diet. This part was soooooooooooo confusing there are so many different diets and so called miracle cures it gets frustrating.
We looked at them all and found that they all had the same foundation, organic and at least 80/20 vegetarian diet.
so how do you fatten someone up on a sugar free, dairy free, vegan diet??? It hard and its been a slow process but here's what we did...
There is an organic protein shake called "VEGAN" it has 160 calories per scoop, it contains every vitamin suppliment you could ever need as well as Omega's and next to no sugar.
Juices with banana's, strawberries, Soy milk and a little bit of STEVIA (tastes great)
Avocado is extremely fattening and full of nutrience
Potatoes, Brown Rice, Lots of UNSALTED almonds, dates, tones of greens, lots of small meals.
Suppliments:- Geraniun capsuls (helps oxidize the blood)
-Vitamin C, Buffered, if you can stomach it take the powder if not take
- Taheebo Tea also called Pau D'arco 1 and a half to two litres per day
as well as 4-6 capsules. If you can find the tinture it is said to be
better thats still being debated! Our whole family is taking it and
are all seeing improvements in our own health.
- Selenium, Omega 3,6,9 and occasionally I throw some "cell food"
into his water (shhhhh he doesn't know that one LOL)
Plenty of fresh air, this one has been harder to get him to do as he was way too tired before. so we bought a dog in hopes that he would walk it, so far my mom walks the dog and occasionally dad does too!
One thing that I think has also been important is "cheat days" for sanity purposes!
He's allowed to eat chicken breat (organic) about once a week.
and occasionally a bit of cheese.
Oh, we also started giving him a bit of essiac tea last week no complaints so far!
I know yesterday I had commented on his CTSCAN but I think what is more important is his blood results.
Of the 42 blood levels tested only 1 was high (his GGT) which has come down from 708 to 172 and his Lymphs were a bit low EVERYTHING else was at normal levels and I don't mean normal for a man with the big C I mean NORMAL!!!!!
LAst month his blood levels were way out of wack so to me this is incredible.
I hope this post helps
I think the hardest part of the diet is wrapping your head around that fact that nutrition might be able to heal your body. We are so conditioned to believe in pharmacuticles and medical technology that anything else seemd way too hoxie!!!
