For what it's worth, as I am not the one presently dealing with cancer, alternative medicine scares the hell out of me. Not because I don't believe in it, because I do. It just takes a huge leap of faith to throw conventional wisdom to the wind and embark on an unknown, unproven journey. Suszanne Somers did it and she has been cancer free for years now. I also had a family friend who, three plus years ago was given 3 to 6 months to live with bladder cancer. It had not matatasized to any other organs, but the cancer had invaded 75% of his bladder. The doctors wanted to remove his bladder, some lymph nodes and his prostate. He did not want them to, nor does he believe in chemo and radiation. I will now post, in his own words, what he did next:
Where to start? Obviously you read my bio! When I was given a 3 to 6 month death sentence is when my wife Carol went to work! She searched the net from China to Brazil and in between. Her question was, cancer fighting foods? She got back the following. Of the 10 or so countries 6 of them totally agreed on exactly the same 5 and in the same order, and here they are.
1. Asparagus (try to consume 2 oz. everyday, yes everyday!) fresh, frozen, pureed or canned.)
2. Broccoli (reg serving)
3. Sweet potatoes (reg serving)
4. Brussel sprouts (reg serving)
5. cranberries (reg serving)
Just try to consume 1 serving of 2 thru 5 with your meal but always some form of asparagus always! I hate Brussel Sprouts and don’t like sweet potatoes either but I think about their importance and boom, their down!
She and I also did a study on Vit D3 and have since realized of how important that little Vit is. It does 2 major things, Vit D3 wakes up your immune system to fight sickness and dreaded disease and most recently Doctors agree that it also fights cancer cells! Check out my blog where I show that video link. Women should take about 2000 units, men 1500.
I’m not a God freak or religious fanatic but I do pray every night for this fight against cancer (again see my other blogs)
I also firmly believe in Mind/Body/Healing (check blog again)
And finally “A positive Mental Attitude” Get rid of feeling sorry and sulking over your condition (if you have a negative outlook)
Above all keep the feedback coming, pro or con!
His name is J Michael Machacek, if anyone wants to look him/his story up. His doctor has asked him to make his file available to other Urologists/Oncologists, which he did do.
So, there you have it. Did Mike's change in diet cure his cancer? You would be hard pressed to convince him that it didn't. Would I have the courage to forego conventional therapies and just change my diet if I were in the same situation? I don't know. Perhaps it was because he really had nothing to lose at that point. To me, this is astounding and wonderful. Too bad I hate just about everything on his list. LOL!
