Re: Reading recommendations

I'd deffo do some reading up and go armed with questions to your Dr.  A modern open minded Dr is a rare find so you have to go armed with data. They will never promote food over Meds, but in my eyes it all helps and If I can take less meds all the better for me. I will take a look at the /forks over knives . Thank you & good luck,

Re: Reading recommendations

Sorry...I didnt finish my post b4 it posted!!!  I have been on anastrozole.  Do not like the side effects...want to try healthy diet and exercise.  Forks over Knives is also on Netflix.  I had a hysterectomy in 1983 and my 2nd ovary removed in 2011.  Isnt the idea of Anastrozole to block oestregen??  I doubt that I have any to block.  I am going to have a discussion with my doc tomorrow.  Good luck to you.

Re: Reading recommendations

Hello...I would recommend Forks over Knives.  It probably seems quite drastic , but it is a plant based, healthy life style.  I have been on andrindezale since Jan 1, have g been diagnosed with ER+PR+HER-2 in Oct

Just wanted to hear of any books you guys had read that were useful. I declined Tamoxifen opting to better improve my diet instead. Odds were no different and I did not want all the side effects.

Anyway 2 I have enjoyed were:

anti cancer, a new way of life (dr.DavidServan-schreiber)

How to starve cancer without starving yourself ( jane McLelland)

 

Anymore that you have come across? 

Also for those wondering about collagen supps...as the cancer uses collagen to travel around the breast i would avoid adding it as a supp especially if you have dense breasts
