Once I realized the author also had brain cancer and had been able to keep it in check for over 15 years through diet and other means, I knew this was the book for me. If you want to learn how to do something, go to someone who has done it! So I bought the book. It's an easy read and is backed up by scientific research and 28 pages of footnotes in case you want to learn more. The book is very specific in its recommendations.
I took the plunge around Christmas, 2009 and have been following the diet ever since. I underwent a year of chemotherapy treatments at the same time. During that time I periodically had MRI's that showed the tumor was shrinking. The tumor has continued to shrink even after I finished chemotherapy in January, 2011, so the diet change and supplements are having the intended effect.
Reading this book and changing what I eat has been incredibly empowering for me. I thought I knew a lot about nutrition before, but I learned some important things from Dr. Servan-Schreiber:
- Vegetables to eat daily (broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, all cabbages)
- Good oils to use (olive and canola)
- Spices to add (garlic, ginger, turmeric)
I also learned some sobering facts about sugar (see page 61):
"The German biologist Otto Heinrick Warburg won the Nobel Prize in medicine for his discovery that the metabolism of malignant tumors is largely dependent on glucose consumption. (Glucose is the form of digested sugar in the body.) In fact the PET scan commonly used to detect cancer simply measures the areas in the body that consume the most glucose. If a particular area stands out because it consumes too much sugar, cancer is very likely the cause."
I never thought I could kick the sugar habit, but after the first two weeks it wasn't hard. I found substitutes to feed my sweet tooth - berries, fruits, cinnamon, stevia, and baker's chocolate (which is unsweetened) with any of the above.
If you have the right motivation I believe you can do just about anything. My plan is to live well and long!
March 2, 2018 - It has been over eight years since my first symptoms of an oligodendroglioma appeared. My tumor shrank considerably, from over 5 cm to about 2.5 cm over 5-6 years. If it were not in the brain, this would be called remission, but in the brain it's called regression. During the past year it has started to grow again, at first slowly and now more aggressively in one area.
For me, nutrition is still a key factor in how I live my life and maintain my health. There is plenty of scientific evidence to support this (see How Not to Die by Dr. Michael Greger or his nonprofit website, NutritionFacts.org). Health is determined by so many other factors. What we eat is simply one of these.
My copy is dog-eared and written in. I've got notes on most of the pages and lots of things are highlighted. There's tons of information that your oncologist isn't going to give you, but you need to know. It was a God send for us. Every cancer patient should own a copy.
