Diagnosed in late September 2019, I have been diligently seeking treatment since.
Early 2020, post chemo & radiation, my symptoms began to re-emerge and the tumor was determined to be active still. The next line of defense according to my conventional oncology team was a surgery. They discovered two tumors and fully removed them. I did suffer from some severe nerve damage that required added effort for my recovery and kept me in the hospital for over a week. Before I could recover enough to jump into the preventative chemo and immunotherapy routine, my cancer aggressively spread to my liver making me a stage four patient. We started the chemo & immunotherapy immediately.
Around that time I had started to read HOW TO STARVE CANCER and was becoming very interested in the concept of Cancer as a metabolic disease.
Current conventional oncology treats Cancer as a genetic disease with toxic processes that take the body to the limit. A reliance on Clinical Trials that are sponsored by Big Pharma means that .
The metabolic approach to cancer offers an additional level of personalized care that centers around lifestyle. For me personally, with a rare cancer that didn’t respond to first line of treatment,iIt gave me a sense of control in my outcome when the prognosis was ‘on paper’ quite bleak.
I added an integrative oncologist to my team, and she immediately ordered up a bunch of blood tests, prescribed a ton of supplements, and confirmed all that I had learned from my reading to that point; that a LOW GLYCEMIC modified PALEO diet plus daily exercise, fermented foods, bone broth and tons of immune system gut work was on the docket.
She also suggested a few more books that I read, and I’ve listed them here, among others that I have consumed since my obsession with this approach to healing the body.
