Introduction

Hundreds of patients think that Corrective Cancer Care is the most comprehensive, most effective and least toxic treatment modality available today.  Read about it here and see if you agree.

Be Informed:
  1. Want something that increases the killing effect of chemotherapy drugs 10,000 fold?
  2. Want something that  “selectively kills cancer cells” ?  Check this out   and this too
  3. Want your chemotherapy to be  low dose and targeted?  Check this out     and this     and this     and this  out!
  4. Want to minimize your side effects of chemotherapy and radiation?  Check this out   and this     and this      and this  out!
  5. Want to enhance your immune system so it is YOU and not the drugs which is killing your cancer?
  6. Is the standard of care  adequate for you?   Norman Shealy M.D. doesn’t think so.  Neither does  Professor Max Wicha, M.D. (distinguished professor of oncology, U Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center)   and neither does Dr. Weeks.      Ask your doctor whether he or she would take the same protocol they are recommending to you. That is a VERY important question.

We offer

1) chemosensitivity testing

2) We offer targeted low dose chemotherapy  (IPT)

3) We offer therapies which redifferentiate cancer stem cells

4) We offer immune enhancement (supplements, energetic medicine, diet and lifestyle support)

For now, here is a summary you can share with those who have cancer.

Here are some links which highlight the concerns we have with conventional cancer therapy which ignores cancer stem cells

Diet is a critically important aspect of recovery from cancer.

Here are some leading thoughts for how to nourish yourself.

Corrective Cancer Care Nourishment Principles

 

 

Three rules of nutrition:

1) Pause before meals and cultivate a sense of appreciation. Someone has grown of food or harvested the food or prepared the food it’s time for you to take a deep breath and relax and feel grateful. This does something very significant biochemically speaking, it shifts you from a “fight or flight” sympathetic-dominant state to a relaxed and regenerative  nourishing yourself  parasympathetic-dominant state.

 

2)  The second rule is “Chew Chew Chew” meaning it is important to fully appreciate the meal by digesting it thoroughly and absorbing into every cell in your body. How often have you looked at your stool and seen uneaten corn kernels or pieces of vegetables or beets which you never chewed and simply passed through you without nourishing you? Did you know that you have three different locations for digestion of food? Your starches are digested mostly in your mouth, proteins in your stomach, and fats oils in your small intestine. Chewing allows the food to be broken apart so that the appropriate digestive enzymes can help you absorbed nutrients at their specific locations.

 

3) The third rule is to eat foods which you can see were once growing in nature. Simple! There is no such thing as a “bread” tree or a “pasta” tree or an “orange juice” tree. Yes you can eat the oranges, but not the orange juice (too much sugar, too concentrated) and you can eat the whole organic or sprouted grain but not the processed bread. Another way to understand this rule is to never eat food which has an ingredients label on it. If you have a label with ingredients on your food it is most likely packaged and has been processed or has food additives or flavorings or dyes mixed in.

 

After paying attention to these three principles of nourishment, the next question is “What foods so I select for breakfast lunch and dinner?” Here is where many philosophies collide: raw foods versus cooked; blood type diets versus food allergy considerations. It can get very complex!

 

In general the Corrective Cancer Care diet features primarily organic green leafy vegetables (broccoli kale Brussels sprouts and other cruciferous vegetables) and the “rainbow vegetables (carrots and beets rich in beta-carotene and other living nutrients). Raw is excellent, lightly sautéed is fine, stir fry is excellent in organic coconut or olive or rice bran oils. Salads can accompany every meal and can be doused with health-giving oils such as olive oil or coconut oil or rice bran oil as well as organic apple cider vinegar and other spices. Salads can have various meats or tofu or vegetables on them as well as raw (not dry roasted) seeds and nuts. New Eden, Manna or other powdered supplements can be mixed into the salad dressing to add nourishment.

 

Often overlooked are the healthy organic sea vegetables (nori, arame, kombu, dulse, wakame)  which grace Japanese cuisine.

 

For starch, we recommend not the processed grains (bread and pasta) but rather the organic whole grains (brown rice, groats, buckwheat, quinoa, amaranth) . Moderate amounts of sweet starchy vegetable can be enjoyed (potato, sweet potato, squashes).  Don’t forget the very powerful herbs such as curcumin turmeric (in curry), cinnamon, ginger, garlic and other old friends in the kitchen.

 

For protein we encourage vegetable proteins such as soy, aduki and other red and black beans, but animal protein is also helpful: organic chicken, fish, egg, turkey,  red meat if high in omega 3  (grass fed) as opposed to omega 6 (corns fed)

 

As for fluids, there is an old wisdom “Drink your solids and swallow your liquids” .  What that means is don’t gulp down an unchewed piece of steak. Instead, chew it enough that it goes down like a liquid slurry. Equally so, rather than chug down a glass of fruit juice (remember, carbodrates like sugar in fruit juice are digested in the mouth!) swish it around in your mouth to ensure digestion before swallowing.  Organic green tea and organic coffee (no cream or sugar!) are complements to a healthy diet but sugary or artificially sweetened sodas and other drinks are not advised.   Try Honegar (1 T raw honey, 1 T organic apple cider vinegar and 8 oz hot or cold water)  or Kashmir Delight (1/2 tsp powdered turmeric  ½  tsp powdered ginger and 8 oz hot water).  If you crave milk,  try soy milk or nut milks (almond, hazelnut  www.rawfoods.com ) or grain milks (rice). But dairy is out – see www.notmilk.com

 

Most importantly,  do not drink much liquid with your meals because fluids dilute your all-important digestive enzymes.  Try this: five minutes before a meal, drink 20 ounces of pure alkaline water to make sure you’re well hydrated before the meal so that your digestive juices function optimally. Only drink enough liquid as is necessary.

 

Again, ideally all this is eaten with a grateful heart.

 

Now what to avoid?

There’s an old saying there’s no such thing is junk food; there is food and there is junk and just because the junk is edible doesn’t make it food! We can all agree that the time for eating junk is passed if you have cancer. Other foods to avoid include sugar, dairy, all foods with artificial coloring, flavoring, dyes and hormones.  It is not enough to simply avoid sugar, you are wise to avoid foods with a “high glycemic index” – i.e. foods that rapidly convert to sugar. For example: cotton candy melts into sugar in your mouth and that means it has too high a glycemic index.  What else becomes sugar right away?  You are correct: alcohol.  So, no more alcohol if you are trying to starve your sugar-eating cancer.
