I realise this was posted some years ago but I wondered whether you still had the notes on diet and whether you could send me a copy please?

It would be wonderful if you could share those notes Judy. My son's father has just been diagnosed with Stage 3 - esophageal cancer. He has a very large tumor and they are going to take a closer look at what they have found on his liver. He has lost over 100 pounds and cannot eat hardly anything. Everything needs to be liquified but with your notes, he may be able to liquify the best possible nutrients he needs right now. God Bless. Thanks, Allison

He is in stage 4 with squamous cell metastatic cancer - meaning that it has spread already to the lymph nodes, which isn't good. He was told it is inoperable and incurable. He has been doing chemo (cisplatin and 5FU) and the tumor (which is between the stomach and esophagus) has not grown. This is a very aggressive form of cancer and the dr. was pleasantly surprised that it hadn't spread in the past 2 months. I feel it is because of the change in diet and lifestyle that we started. We are doing the Macrobiotic Diet and have given up red meat, white sugar, white flour, and milk products and are eating whole grains, organic vegetables and fruit, beans, soy products and soon we will be trying seaweed. That sounds awful but if it means your life, it's worth it. We personally know 2 people who have been cured of their cancer with this diet. And it makes sense. I have been reading everything I can on the internet and diet and lifestyle change seems to be the answer. The body can heal itself if you give it nutrients. There are certain foods that can kill (suffocate) cancer cells. I have about 15 pages of typed notes that I have accumulated on diet and curing cancer if you are interested. You need to read the book "When Hope Never Dies" by Marlene McKenna and "Beating Cancer with Nutrition" by Patrick Quillin. I feel it can be beat!

No unfortunately not. I think there are still a lot of us, even 10 years on, who would really welcome these notes.
Good luck to you and your father

Sorry to say, if it has spread beyond the Esophagus, then, it will spread further. My brother passed away on October 27, 2012. His cancer spread to the lungs, bones, brain, etc. He starved to death. I miss him.

It is a terrible surgery where they remove the esophagus and part of the stomach. They had hoped that they found it in time but found that it had spread to the lymph nodes. They have not started any type of treatment yet but are saying that he will have chemo and radiation after he recovers from this surgery. I can use any help I can get from anyone on different treatments and now I am seeing a lot about diet and nutrition also coral calcium. I am trying research as much as I can so I can help him. Anyone with advice on anything that might give him a better chance? We have all kinds of friends and family praying for us and I know that has helped to let him come thru the surgery.

So sorry to hear about your dad. Even with my dad it's a struggle to keep his weight but fortunately by the grace of God he can still eat anything though we limited his meat intake. I give my dad Prosure and ensure but prefer Prosure since less sugar content (when he was on feeding tube during radiation) boiled organic vegetables which we strain it throught the strainer with a teaspoon of coconut oil sometimes. Ghee sometimes etc when he can eat with rice. Coconut water almost everyday.
We are now fighting like hell and struggling but still we have hope ...
Now am researching cannabis raw juice/oil (cant find the oil at the moment) ...I think it looks very very promising.
Hope your Dad will bounce back soon. It's takes a short time to get unwell but long time to get better ...alway be positive(I know it's hard sometimes :( )
Good luck and God bless
