last night i was contemplating over the kind of nutrition my mom had..guess, i focused on the quantity not the quality type of nutrition.  I t may have probably contributed to the growth of her tumor to her lt lower area of the back.  It boils down been feeding her with rich in sugars, meat protein.( evaluated by the nutritionist though during her tx sessions she can have " anything".  Not even paying attention if quantity is more important than quality..I' m afraid if I'll change her diet she might lose weight and not be able to withstand her upcoming tx -folfiri by next week. She's walking around despite the pain.. Need any suggestions/advices. She doesnt eat cabbage, broccoli (her info re this veggies until now sticks to her head), been trying to educate her re vegetables, receptive to few only. She loves meat protein such as beef, chicken.  I read last night from some of our friends here in this site about SUGARS, meat protein, dairy. Pls. help..

Hello Hope73,

That's great you're looking into diet to help your mom. There are answers out there, seek and ye shall find. We have had to be our own advocate for Mike's health. Diet DOES make a difference! Even if it doesn't cure, it will improve ones quality of life. There are many excellent resources out there that will explain why a veggie, low protein, no sugar, alkaline diet works. Juicing veggies with an apple is great too.

As far as your mom gaining weight you might try the Budwig Diet that uses cottage cheese with flaxseed oil blended together to look like sour cream consistency. My husband gained 20# doing this when nothing else worked! It is suppose to oxygenate the cells and the oil definitely puts weight on! Mike's color also came back to his face and began getting his energy back.

There are many wonderful people on this site that can help you. God guide and bless you through this journey called life.  In Christ, Lynn

hi Lynn!

Thank you very much for your prompt reply..a bit ago my mom and myself discussing about drastic change in her diet and looks like she was receptive to it and i told her from this time on we'll both change our diet. we'll try the Budwig diet since it will also benefit her gaining some pounds..the sugar part im looking at is the raw sugar..lynn, is that the best substitute for refined sugar? Do you have any other alternatives for it? Told her too, we need to think of all but natural, organic types of nutrition. She loves rice too, we eat white rice at home, that i guess would need be scratch off from our daily staple food.  

This site is helpful with wonderful people around it sharing their experiences. An eye opener for me..well, i must say got hooked up with this site now which before i got so preoocupied with social networking and have found this site where i could have my mom read through the messages so she can also be more involved and proactive.  Again, my sincerest appreciation to you and to all.. with God's grace we'll get through this.. hope

I've researched cancer and immunity extensively out of necessity for the health of myself and family members. Your mom should wean herself from ALL sweets, including fruit and artificial sweeteners.

Your mom should eat healthy servings of rice. Its sugar is benign, time-release amylose. Its proteins are docile, and healthy for cancer sufferers. She should ingest meat, fat, white cheeses, plain yogurt, and veggies. A few plain corn chips and tortillas won't hurt. They contain amylose and docile proteins, and are low in fructose. No grassy grains (wheat, barley, rye or oats). No nightshades (tomatoes, potatoes or peppers). No legumes (peanuts, beans or peas). No nuts, except for macadamia nuts. No onions or garlic. She should drink water.

 ....Rinse and repeat.

Good luck.

thanks for your prompt reply..i read brown rice be a substitute for white rice; isn't it animal meat protein such as beef, pork contributes harm to existing condition?

Need enlightenment on this area,pls. 

thnx..hope

The problem proteins are the ones which require "deamidation" by enzymes like DPPIV in the small intestine. Intestinal immune processes cut these reactions short before the proteins get fully digested. These process dumps sugars and whole proteins into the bloodstream before they can be broken down.

Meat proteins are broken down earlier, in the stomach. They are "deaminated" by enzymes like pepsin which are activated by bile acid in the stomach. Meat proteins are broken down before they can be affected by immune processes in the small intestine.

The difference between brown rice and white rice? White rice is brown rice with the "germ" protein removed. I can’t put my fingers on the study right now, but it demonstrated that humans tolerate rice germ quite well. My experiences agree with these findings.

Good luck.
