    Former Model Battles Breast Cancer with Diet Changes

    She was completely healthy a little over a year later.
    "I switched from a generally healthy diet to a metabolic one, focusing on alkaline over acid foods and cutting out all sugars," adds Richards. "I also cut out all grains and most fruit, which are broken down into sugars. Instead, I concentrated on leafy green vegetables, short grain rice, quinoa and linseeds, and cut out all dairy, which is pumped with artificial hormones. I also had regular high-dose infusions of vitamin C, a natural form of chemotherapy."

    Very interesting!



    She definitely looks healthy. She doesn't look 55.

    It is irresponsible for the tabloid rag to publish this. She may have just been lucky.

    I can personally vouch for the benefits of a non-sugar diet.

    I had a few issues with my prostate about 5/6 years back and the docs were recommending all kinds of radical solutions but fortunately I knew a Buddhist herbal medicine practitioner and he told me the gland was most probably just 'gunged up'. When I asked him how to 'de-gunge' it he advised me to cut out all sugar, so I gave this a try and within about 3 months I felt like there had never been a problem in the first place

    I must confess that I've since succumbed to the lure of sugar once again (after all, it is a drug ) but nothing even close to former levels and I must say that I feel as well now as I did 20 years ago!

    I completely agree the levels of sugar in modern diets are unequivocally bad for us.

    But I am highly sceptical of the claim that avoiding certain foods will cure pre-existing cancer.

    This sounds somewhat like the ketogenic diet, which I'm very skeptical of because our brains prefer carbs for energy. You don't want to go and interfere with your brain chemistry.

    In some studies Vitamin C has been shown to slow down the progress of cancer, and sometimes reduce the size of a tumour. A good diet could help to, but it would be risky to try cure cancer like this. There is probably a good few people who have died trying things like this.

    Natural News is an utter crap website peddling conspiracy theories and quackery to. On the front page there is a story claiming the West Nile virus has not been proven to exist! They omitted a big section from The Sun, because the writers have no sense of balance.

    FIRSTLY, I’m delighted Jessica is alive and seemingly well.

    Very occasionally, I’ve seen spontaneous regression of cancers, possibly two or three per 1,000 cases.

    I’m not against the use of some complementary therapies in conjunction with conventional medicine, but using them instead of conventional medicine is a mistake.

    There have been some amazing developments in cancer in recent years and even if we can’t cure all cancers, we can often turn that cancer into a disease the patient can live with for longer, providing them with a better quality of life. The data for complementary therapies simply doesn’t exist. As a practising hospital-based oncologist I’ve worked with somewhere in the region of 10,000 cancer patients and I’ve never seen one get better with vitamins.

    Complementary therapies often pose risks in their own right – the use of royal jelly can cause hepatitis and there is a Chinese herb that can actually cause kidney cancer.

    It’s perhaps understandable people grasp at straws.

    But the ongoing development and refinement of therapies such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy are proven to save and improve lives.

    I have been following a keto diet for 8 months now, and I have no troubles. The body can synthesize fuel for the brain from other sources than carbs. And you don't avoid carbs completely on the diet anyway. My energy levels and my mood are so much better because of stable blood sugar levels. But you are correct that keto and Dr. Atkin's diet has experienced some controversy.

    If the diet is changed from a highly glycemic diet to a diet that does not provide sufficient carbohydrate to replenish glycogen stores, the body goes through a set of stages to enter ketosis. During the initial stages of this process, blood glucose levels are maintained through gluconeogenesis, and the adult brain does not burn ketones. However, the brain makes immediate use of ketones for lipid synthesis in the brain. After about 48 hours of this process, the brain starts burning ketones in order to more directly use the energy from the fat stores that are being depended upon, and to reserve the glucose only for its absolute needs, thus avoiding the depletion of the body's protein store in the muscles.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ketosis

    Normally, the carbohydrates contained in food are converted into glucose, which is then transported around the body and is particularly important in fuelling brain function. However, if there is very little carbohydrate in the diet, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies. The ketone bodies pass into the brain and replace glucose as an energy source. An elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood, a state known as ketosis, leads to a reduction in the frequency of epileptic seizures.[

    Allopathic medicine has no cure to offer. Chemotherapy does not do much, most doctors who have cancer don't do it to themselves.

    There are plenty of alternative cures from the New German Medicine to Reich's Orgone therapy, to drinking baking soda (an Italian doctor figured out that cancer is a fungus, therefore he gave His patients baking soda to drink with high curing rates) and so on.

    Almost everyone who develops a cure for cancer is shut down or killed. There is too much money in the useless chemotherapy and profit counts more than the life of people.

    When you have cancer you better find your own way to heal and avoid doctors.

    Some things that she said that I agree with were

    Cancer needs an acidic bloodstream, so it is beneficial to eat alkaline foods such as vegetables, and Citracals with calcium, which also have vitamin D.

    It is better to eat vegetables than fruits.

    It is better to eat organic meats and dairy, in limited quantity.

    It is a good idea to limit whole grains, and nearly eliminate processed sugars and flour.

    In addition to vitamin C, it is also beneficial to eat turmeric, alpha lipoic acid, acai berries, Detoxigreens, and possibly ginger. It also helps to drink filtered water.

    There are other forms of cancer treatment besides chemotherapy available with a little research.
