ALTERNATIVE AND SUPPLEMENTAL CARE
As a patient or caregiver, you'll explore countless options for treatment, including diet changes, fasting, and pages of marketing messages. My son for some reason spent a week on a fruit fast; he never regain the weight he lost and continued to grow thinner. Wasting, it seems such a cruel word, so be aware. I think now, how Steve bicycled to chemo and back to work for a few sessions. He said it helped, "Leaving Cancer."
My point is this: work with your TEAM, request a consult with the nutritionist who will have many options, including products and diets tailored to your particular needs. Their guidelines and suggestions are based on scientific research and experience. Request information about integrative care, consults for yoga, meditation, find out what's available to you.
You can find a frightening array of cures online, from around the world. Please, discuss with your physicians. If something "cured" cancer, pharmaceutical companies would be testing and marketing it. You might consider ignoring the headline: "Your Cancer Doctor doesn't want YOU to know about this."
Explore clinical trials with your doctor. If you feel like doing the research, here are a couple sites to search through:
National Cancer Institute Clinical Trials
American Cancer Society
INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE - SUPPLEMENTAL CARE
