Should be safe

Re: superfoods or cancer fighting foods

Hi Jo,
I`ve nearly finished my chemo and I have been taking Vitamin C (1g per day), D (50 micrograms) and probiotics the whole time. I haven`t had any infections, not even a flu whilst my family around me have been ill. I know they say that we should not take vitamins but you can also try to eat them from food, if you don`t like taking the pills. It is difficult to get 1 g of Vitamin C from food and also vitamin D is a challenge during winter time as there is hardly any sunshine. Vitamin C and D together fight infections. And probiotics protect your stomach. Protecting the hair is a different story( cold cap and Biotin and Omega fatty acids. I don`t take all this during the first week after chemo as liver may get overloaded but during the last two weeks before the next treatment. One week to go and I still have half of my hair left. Hope it all goes well for you! Take care! Sunshiney

Just thought to mention.I have been having Emmett therapy to help immune system .I have it day after chemo.Has kept me balanced most of time.Also had couple sessions of neurolink.It about your body`s power and ability to heal its self.For me it has been really positive and something I could do for myself whilst being pumped with toxic drugs.Gill again!!

Re: superfoods or cancer fighting foods

Broccoli is one of the best foods.lots info out there.can have it in soups,steamed or in salads.I have been taking curcumin tablets from health food shop to help digestive system during chemo.

Some eating plans are extreme!! I know cancer cells love sugars so once I have finished treatment my plan is to minimise processed food especially sugars.I found and from reading blogs seems normal that at times sugar is stable diet (cake)

Good luck.Gill
