    Can I just drink regular green tea with lemon?
    Would that also help?

    Thank you!

    Green Tea
    If you're going to have enjoyment with tea, go with GREEN for full benefit. It contains EGCT, which is one of the most powerful nutritional molecules against the formation of new blood vessels by cancerous cells. It also acts as a detoxifier for the body. It activates mechanisms in the liver that can then eliminate cancerous toxins from the body more rapidly. It is more potent when added with lemon juice.

    HOW MANY CUPS OF GREEN TEA PER DAY (per Anti Cancer book)?

    In a group of Japanese women suffering from breast tumors that had not yet metastasized, researchers discovered that those who consumed THREE CUPS OF GREEN TEA PER DAY had 57% fewer relapses than those who only drank ONE CUP PER DAY. Why deprive ourselves?

    It takes a while to get used to green tea, especially if you were a coffee drinker, but I think of all the great benefits and down it fast. It's now become my staple and my goal daily is 4 cups and each is loaded with lemon juice (or fresh lemons) and a few shakes of ground cinnamon...yummie!

    Try it, you'll like it~

    What KIND of green tea
    Hi, Jan

    I drink green tea and have done so for years. What brand do you drink? That's may biggest concern right now, since I'd rather avoid the stuff from Japan--what I had been drinking up to now.

    Thanks for the info, and I think my brand of green tea tastes like fish water. No matter how much lemon I add, it still tastes like it formerly bathed a school of goldfish. But as Jana said, I'd eat squirrel s**t if it guaranteed no recurrence.

    So, half of lemon in each
    So, half of lemon in each cup sounds good to me. Is that enough?
    That would make 2 lemons per day.
    I am sorry for the silly questions :)

    No silly questions here
    Ask away. On these boards, there is no such thing as a silly question.

    In my humble estimation, two lemons sounds like just the right amount.

    Tea
    I purchase mine at iHerb.com and it's called Organic Sencha Green Tea (loose) 1 lb sealed bag, from China. I just learn to use the metal device to steep the tea in. Must let it sit in hot water for 10 minutes according to Anti Cancer book...can you tell I rely on this book, almost like my Bible. They used to have "decaf" green tea but haven't been in stock for a bit, so I just use regular. According to what I've read, reg has more of the ECGC ingredients and not that much caffeine. Usually caffeine keeps me awake, but haven't noticed this even when I drink it at 7pm for dinner.

    Jill, you're a hoot -- about not caring about the taste if it kills any cancer. I ditto that one girl. The things I eat now amaze me, as it's almost like second nature, whereas, many years ago I'd poo-poo the idea and held my nose...crazy hum!

    Fayad, I don't always use fresh lemons but bet if you cut one in 1/2 and squeeze juice, that would be sufficient enough for one glass/cup. I generally use the refrigerated kind in a bottle. Don't want to let the tea sit too long, meaning hours on end and drink later. Best drinking soon after the 10 minutes of steeping. I try to double the amount I made each time and almost like I'm getting 2 cups in one serving. Forces me to get both down and by end of day I had my 4 cups in 2 servings...bingo!

    Sencha
    I use sencha also.. but in tea bags.
    Jill it took alittle bit of getting use to but I love it now. After reading this, I will add the lemon juice! It does hurt and I like lemons. I finish my last chemo treatment tomorrow :-) and plan on increasing my green tea and wheat grass juice intake.

    Laura, congratulations
    on coming to the end of your chemo treatments. I remember how excited I was when I finished, full of ideas about how I would change my diet, exercise more, and reduce my stress. I wish you all the best and many, many years of pristine health.

    BTW, where you you purchase your sencha tea bags? I have the loose tea, but I waste so much of it trying to get it inside that little steel ball. LOL.

    I read your bio and your story sounds like mine! I had a fibriod and went in for a partial hysterectomy... and thats when they found cancer. Had a full hysterectomy done and found 1 positive lymph node... stage 3c grade 3 adenocarcinoma... How far out from treatment are you?

    Green Tea
    I get Green Tea bags, Brand is STASH...available at both Whole Foods and and also my regular grocery store....it is the dried leaves of the Camellia sinensis tea plant. Don't think it tastes like water from a goldfish bowl either... :-)...Makes me smile!

    The tea recommended in the Anti Cancer book seems very expensive. I may need to look into the tea Claudia is getting.

    I squeeze the lemon and generally use about 1/4 lemon per cup (of course the size and juciness of the lemon vary). Also, if I have ginger root, I grate a bit of that in the tea too sometimes.

    Cheers!

    Thank you, Karen
    Tomorrow, I will look for Stash green tea at Whole Foods. I'm glad that it doesn't have that fishy taste.

    Cheers to you, too!

    Yes I did read your bio as well and very similar. When you mean partial,did they keep your ovaries? I had it all taken out for good reasons. Also, my treatments included 33 sessions of external pelvic radiation due to the lymph node being outside the uterine wall.

    End of this month will be 2 years post treatments...yeah! Go for my next checkup mid-August and of course, already thinking about it once more. Just part of the journey.

    What type drugs for chemo? I had carboplatin & taxol and did quite well with it, but last 3 he added neulasta to boost my blood counts.

    Now that you're at the end of treatments, as Jill mentioned, you're looking at new ways to live your live thru better eating, exercising, stress reducers, etc. This is the place to get wonderful support and ideas. Everyone has helped me in more ways then they can count.

    Nice to meet you and feel free to send a personal email if you wish to chat further.

    Where in the NY area are you, and where did you have your treatment? I'm in Brooklyn--grew up on LI; had surgery at St. Vincent's; and my gyne-onc is now at Mt. Sinai.

    It's nice to have someone local to me on the board.

    yes yes yes
    I am certain that lemoncello has lots of good lemon stuff in it. There are many many lemons used for just a medium-sized bottle (we saw it being produced in Italy). I do love it too, Suzanne.

    Hi Jan, I first had a
    Hi Jan, I first had a partial and thats when they found the cancer... my first dr did a biopsy b4 the partial and the lab said it was clean. But when he removed the uterus at the hospital, thats when they found cancer. So I had to go back in for the full with my onco gyn.... Everything else was completely clean, except for 1 pelivc lymph node.
    I am finishing up my 8th carbo/taxol treatment today. My dr said the standard is 6 but also said since my body can take it he wants to do an additional 2.
    Its so good to hear its been almost 2 years!!! That is sooo awesome! I can't wait to return to my "normal" life now... Its going to be hard to reduce the worry, but I'm hoping with time it will happen only before the scans. In the future I pray this will just be a bump in the road as I watch my daughter grow up.

    Much Love to everyone on this forum!

    Hey Jill! Or should I say
    Hey Jill! Or should I say fellow NY'er! I am on LI, and so is my Dr. I did go to Sloan for a second opinion but they said they would do the same treatment plan as the dr I am seeing. Also they couldnt fit me into surgery for 6 weeks... I have full trust in my doctor and wanted to begin treatment asap. The sooner I start it, the sooner I can get back to "normal". I am in Suffolk county now but grew up in Nassau the Bellmore Merrick area.
