I always try to recommend healthy diets to my friends and family. Especially to persons who are sick or fighting against cancers. I keep the books of David Servan-Schreiber (Guérir, Anti-Cancer) on my coffee table (I mean « green tea table »:) as they are full of good advices. I am not a doctor and everyone can react differently to food; but here is a list of advices I found useful and food products that we should always remember to put on our tables:
– Reduce or eliminate sugar. Sugar induces the inflammation that helps the bad calls and metastasis’s progress. The lowest impact sugar sirup is Agave.
– Reduce animal proteins and only eat organic meats and eggs that have a Omega 3 supplement. Same for dairy products.
– Eliminate white wheat.
– Drink Green Tea instead of coffee (6 cups of per day, can be decaffeinated). It has polyphenols that reduce tumors and metastasis, especially during chemotherapy.
– Turmeric is the spice found in the curry. It is the strongest anti-inflammatory and it increases the good effects of the chemotherapy. You need to mix it with back pepper so the body can absorbs it. It can be used on vegetables with olive oil.
– Use olive oil or flax seed oil. The others have too much Omega 6 (bad omegas). Eliminate any Hydrogenated oils like sunflower oil, and all the fried food, chips etc…
– GINGER, GARLIC, onions, leeks, chive, shallots.
– Vegetables rich of carotene with orange or strong colors containing Vitamin A and Lycopene which limits the progression of the bad cells.
Tests were done on rats with tumors, giving them a mix of vegetables really simple everyday. The cancer stopped progressing. The Mix included: garlic, brussel sprouts, beets, broad beans, spinach, green onions, broccoli, grapefruit, turmeric and black pepper, green tea, (240 ml per day for an human being)
– tomatoes cooked.
– mushrooms: shiitake, maitake, enokitake, cremimi, portobello. They contain Lentinan which stimulate the immune system and cells .
– Spices: thyme, oregano, basil, mint, parsley, celery, especially ROSEMARY which increases the efficiency of the chemotherapy.
– Seaweeds : nori, kombu, wakame. arame and dulse. But are they safe now??
– strawberry, Raspberry, blueberry, blackberry. They contain Ellagic Acids and a lot of polyphenols which stimulate the elimination of the bad cells. They had amazing results with Raspberry extract for cancer.
– orange, grapefruit, tangerine which have favonoids, anti inflammatory and detox the liver.
– Pomegranate juice, every morning.
– supplements of Omega 3, DHA and EPA. (but are they safe now due to percentage of plastic in fish oils?)
– Probiotics; which lock the progress of the cancer cells of the colon.
