There is a common thing that every cancer patient should hear from their oncologist when they are diagnosed with cancer. They should be informed that by making certain dietary changes, they could increase their chances of healing dramatically, no matter what treatment they get.
Cancer patients should be told that nutrition is their first and best defense to cure cancer. They should be given information on how to switch to an alkaline diet, mainly consisting of vegetables, with a small amount of fruits, cereals, and proteins. This diet is similar to the ketogenic diet that is the subject of much debate in oncology journals, with a further reduction in the total consumption of proteins, cereals, fats, and processed sugars, to help reduce inflammation in the body.
