Sorry I just saw this. I will add more at another time, but I can tell you this. In our experience, changing your diet to counter the cancer is challenging, but also very rewarding. It does take a lot of research on the subject of nutrition and cancer.
You won't get this advice from the doctors. They've been trained on the side of medicine. They have limited foundation in the area of nutrition.
Cute sidebar however.....One time during our meetings with our oncologist we had good CT results. We talked about how we added cloves of garlic to Lynn's daily diet. Our oncologist smiled and said that we should "create a medical name" for it and publish a book. i.e. if the medical world isn't buying in to nutrition, make it a medical topic. The end of this story is that Lynn's medicine list at the doctor's office now includes garlic. Pretty cool.
My wife has completely transformed her diet to eliminate all processed foods - not just sugars. She and my daughter, who I give credit for continued research on this topic, have developed a diet regimen that consists mainly of vegetables, fruits, beans (lots of spices for flavoring), fish and chicken. All organic. She is now eating 2500 calories/day, and everyone is a value added calorie. No red meat - too hard on the liver to deal with. Everything is based on nutrients and reduction of toxins to the liver.
There's lots more to the story, but I will tell you we believe the chemo helped ONLY as much as the modified diet. It was definitely the combination that provided her with the positive improvement.
And attitude accounted for 50% of the improvement.
I hope you have a Merry Christmas,
