Women who don't have BRCA mutations could have other high-risk genes that affect treatment choices

I had endometrial cancer, which has now metastasized to the lungs. I've been on what is known as the "anti-cancer diet," perhaps best known from the book Anti-Cancer: A New Way of Life by Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, M.D., since January. In addition to chemo., I am seeing an oncologist who practices integrative medicine, which means I am also exercising daily, taking supplements, and practicing mind/body work (yoga, meditation, spiritual practice). All recommendations are based on scientific research, so this is not about crazy or fraudulent cancer treatments. I am looking for other people who are practicing these same lifestyle activities to talk to about what they are doing and compare notes (and recipes). Thank you, Babs in Sacramento, California

Hey babs, what supplements are you taking? My husband was just diagnosed with gbm IV brain cancer and I am looking to suppliment his diet to help with the radiation and Temador treatments. I'm hoping to find something that will boost his energy levels so he can excercise. I know exercising helps boost your energy level the hard part is getting started. I might just send him back to the physical therapist for encouragement. I will be looking for that anti cancer book. Thanks for the tip. I found a site my friend told me about. google "MMS Jim humble". depending on how my husbands treatment goes I'm going to try it out.
