Food is medicine

I think a better way to say it is nutrition is medicine. When you have cancer, alot of times your body cannot work the process of digesting food so you have to find a way to get nutrition into your body, other wise you don`t survive!

Nutrition is a very important part of any natural healing protocol.   Ensure should never be recommended for anyone with cancer.  Sugar feeds cancer and the first three ingredients in Ensure are water and then two sugars.

wow, that was a good eye opener, cuz my doc. recommended this and I know sugar feeds the cancer.  Why is that not taken seriously?

The kids drink pediasure and again it's loaded with syrup..

My wife has pantriatic cancer. They gave her 4mths to live [had jaundice at the time]. Went thru radiation and then chemo. Well chemo kills! While going thru chemo I more or less feed her body. Some sujestions:                  GreensFirst                                                                 Vita D-3                                                                       selinium                                                               Anything to alkilize the body[AlkaBalance]                         Flax seed[grind it yourself]                                           Pro-biotics                                                              Gained the weight back she lost                                                                          Since chemo kills everything, you have to let the chemo work for a couple days and then replinish her body with the good things the chemo kills.

One year later- the tumur is dead.[demonstrates no signicant abnormal hypermetabolism within the pancreas]. Tumor has shrunk by over 50%, but still quite large. and no side effect from chemo[still taking it]. Another pet-scan in Dec. So people don`t give up, hit it hard from all directions!!!! And remember you body is the best doctor and every-body is different.

Actually sugar feeds every cell in the body including cancer cells and if you avoid all carbohydrates your body will make sugar out of other substances. Elevated insulin levels however may need to be avoided. Please check out: http://cancerdietitian.com/2008/02/does-sugar-feed-cancer-pa

I'm following a modified version of the Gerson Therapy and feel sooooo great. energetic, holding my weight, great appetite.  I strive to get rest and only following the diet part of the Gerson Therapy .... not the full program since I am going through chemo..... but definitely the organic juicing and working my way up to no animal protein, no salt and no fats. other than Flax oil. No nausea Sometimes I wonder "did they accidently mix up the patient files??!!" 

unprocessed organic foods,  are healing!
