Does it seem to be working, in your opinion?
What types of things are you doing?
Books you've relied on or different types of doctors you have used to guide you.
Another question goes like this. If you have been doing "x", "y", and "z",then you get cancer, have treatment and continue doing whatever "x" etc,were, do you think you will have a different outcome, or do you think you might have trouble beating your cancer.
Do you think, if you take the time and really think about it, that it might make sense to try to change what you had been doing when you got cancer, now that you are trying to not get cancer again.
If you have heart disease or diabetes, or you are overweight or have liver problems due to drinking, or a myriad of other things, wouldn't you expect you doctor to ask you to change your behavior? Wouldn't you expect them to ,at the very least, give you some helpful guidelines when you have something as potentially life changing as cancer. Why would most doctors say there is nothing you could do through diet or lifestyle changes that would make any difference, when there are so many studies that no longer support that view?
Why doesn't he/she then ask you to change your behavior in regards to your cancer, especially in lieu of the fact that cancer cells have specific needs and specific things that slows down division or induces cancer death? Put this way, if you have type two diabetes, or are close to getting cirrhosis of the liver, and you go to your doctor and they give you whatever they give you for diabetes, or cirrhosis and don't ask you to change any of your behaviors, what would you think of that treatment?
Best to us all, and I still don't think so many should be having cancer wipe them out.
I have a monumental amount of hope for cancer's toll to be lessened, with changes we can make in our lives, and even better, in our children's lives. That is truly what I am all about.
