Ive been having a (research) battle with myself on the idea of loading up in the antioxidant dept before treatment for obvious reasons. Ive heard it helps AND hurts. Im wondering if I should limit myself (or stick to certain supplements...foods) Im seeing a dietician next week..I just want to go in there with my research and PERSONAL opinions from experience. With you all being caregivers, survivors, and patients...I value YOUR views..
Thanks in advance, I really appreciate any help...

I am so glad that you're doing your own research, your dietitian is blessed to have such an interested client! There are a couple of websites that may be helpful...
Both of these ladies are well versed colleagues of mine, Cancer RD- Diana Dyers with a history of surviving cancer three times herself.
Hope your appointment with your Dietitian goes well.

Like mosgt things you are your biggest allie. My wife and I started her chemo a month ago. before that we met with a diatician. she may have know what foods or supplements had what for calories and protien. She was not intersted in noni juice or budwig diet. oh I haven't heard of that on in particular. Not sure how youd be in that field and not have heard or the budwig diet. It is hard enough to put it all together when the so called experts don't have a clue. Do as much research as you can. We are drinking Noni juice. Have a friend who credits it with saving him. Have not seen any negative on it so it is worth a shot. I am encouraged by the flaxoil/cottege cheese mixture. again have not seen any negatives and very inexpensive. other than that trying to eat a lot more fruits and veggies. fish. staying away from sugar. I've seen more than one article that said to stay away from sugar. Not sure if its helpfull or not? cost is nothing. If anyone has a referral for a good nutritional book I would love to read it. Especially if it gives the why of what is good for us. SO much info so little time. And we all have no choice but to get it right. Best of luck to all on this board.

I am very pleased about the following book: Anticancer: a new way of life by David Servan-Schreiber, MD, PhD. There is quite a bit of nutritional info. that tells you the "why" part you are looking for. I am ordering it for my father (GBM grade IV) because my mother-in-law has it and loves it (lung cancer stage IV).

In May 2005 I was diagnosed with stage III or locally advanced prostate cancer. I used alternative treatment to defeat my incurable cancer. It s been over 4 years since had treatment. As long as conventional medicine treats the sympton and not the cause they will continue with their bleak results. The Budwig diet is part of my approach. I believe if you boost your immune system and feed it with antioxidents your body was made to defeat cancer. With diet, supplements and positive mental attitude you can win. The choice is yours.

Research POLY MVA.... also baking soda and water. 3 x a day. 1/2 tsp of baking soda (pure from health food store) and about 4 oz of water. This should help a lot.
