After just two treatements her CA-125 is now back in the normal range. We credit it as much to good nutrition as to the chemo. I strongly recommend the Patrick Quillan book "Beating Cancer with Nutrition" as well as "How to Prevent and Treat Cancer with Natural Medicine" by Michael Murray. We also visited two naturopathic physicians since most oncologists don't seem to have any knowledge or interest (how sad) in the connection between diet and cancer. Below is the list of vitamins and supplements my mother takes each day. Exercise is also very important since it increases endorphins in the body and raises the internal body temperature, both of which kill cancer cells. Good luck!

Hi there! I was reading your message from a long time ago and was wondering how your mother was doing and what lessons you have learned over the last five years. My mother was diagnosed with stage 3c ovarian cancer three weeks ago. She has had surgery and just had her first round of chemo yesterday. I am an advocate of juicing and have been moving towards eating more raw foods in my diet and I appreciated your quest for healthy eating as a way and means of healing for cancer patients and all of us.
If you have any more insights being five years down the path, I would greatly appreicate it. I will look into the books you recommended. Thanks,
