Problems After Cancer

Hello dear knowledgable bulletproofers:) my mother now 67 survived tough cancer treatment, radiation and chemo. This is 4 years ago, but the last year her overall condition has detiriorated severly. She looses her balance and can hardly walk anymore and she is going more and more into dementia, from forgetting what she has said till thinking she is places that she is not. Doctors say they cannot do anything and we cant get anything but a shoulderraise. There must be a reason why she has aged 20 years in ten months and is there someting to be done?

Thank you all in advance

Best regards mathis

  • I am not a doctor nor a naturopath, but I would suggest a low carb diet (preferably a ketogenic diet containing whole, organic and unprocessed foods) in combination with anti-inflammatory supplements (like curcumin) and supplements targeting at nutrition deficiencies like for example, vitamin D3. (Identify those deficiencies through tests first). High doses of vitamin C may also be beneficial. But I feel restrained to give advice to (former) cancer patients so please consult an holistic doctor AND a regular GP first.

    i would be wary to suggest a keto diet for someone who has had cancer...


    i have not seen any evidence for keto diets for cancer patients, perhaps in a 'petri dish' (in vitro).


    i know this is an ex-cancer patient, but still(?). 


     


    i have actually seen a few studies that suggest keto diets may be a bad idea for cancer patients, tho i have only glimpsed at them. 


    here are a few; 


    Ketones and lactate increase cancer cell “stemness,” driving recurrence, metastasis and poor clinical outcome in breast cancer


    Tumor growth in patients with tuberous sclerosis complex on the ketogenic diet


    Long-term High Fat Ketogenic Diet Promotes Renal Tumor Growth in a Rat Model of Tuberous Sclerosis (rat study)


    fake it till you make it

    so do high fat diets cause cancer?

    How ketones have the potential to accelerate tumour growth in some cancers.
    Why you can’t “starve cancer cells” with a ketogenic diet.
    The complexity of cancer.
    Is cancer a genetic disease, metabolic disease or both?
    Issues with the way some cancer research is being interpreted and communicated.
    Criticisms of the conclusions being made based on the experimental models used.
    Why recommending cancer patients embark on a ketogenic diet is premature & potentially counter-productive.

  • Even though most cancer cells can't use their mitochondria very well there is still plenty of glucose in the blood even when on a ketogenic diet. In vitro experiment shows you need to get glucose down 1mmol/l, then cancer cells die within a few days.

    There has been research supporting a ketogenic diet for cancer, Vitamin C to target cancer 10x better then pharmaceuticals, and fasting. Although these methods are an option, a whole foods, unprocessed diet (something similar to Bulletproof) would be the most advisable.

    One thing that doesn't get enough attention, is that while diet is crucial, keeping a good attitude, laughing, and being with family are all important factors to a good health. Best of luck to you!

    It is what it is.

  • Stephanie 'keto' Person used a keto diet to help her mom,who had cancer at the time.
    So,maybe it makes a difference as to what type of cancer someone has?

  • I would like to suggest you to contact your doctor and discuss about all the things relative to your mother's health. There might be a chance of having some side effects of the treatment received earlier or there might be some other problem with her health which need to be taken care off.

  • My mom died of cancer last year. Even before then I knew that some cancer types are circulating in my family so I researched them.
    There are specific diets out there to heal cancer patients with natural means. One well known is the Essiac tea cure, another one is from a German lady that within her life time has cured cancer patients with a a very basic very simple diet that has to be adhered to religiously.

    When regular medications don't help and modern medicine is not helping many patients flock to natural methods.
    I myself would not consider modern medicine much if I contracted cancer. Removal of a tumor is all I would allow modern doctors to do. The rest I would only address with natural means, but of course that would be my own choice and I would bear all responsibility.
