Nutritional Cancer Care - The Blood Detective Way!
Dr. Michael Wald is the author of, Nutrition and Cancer - a professional level textbook for physicians. Dr. Wald provides personalized nutrition in the form of dietary and focused nutritional supplement suggestions based upon the individualized needs of cancer patients based upon:
Dr. Wald's comprehensive natural approach to cancer
- Specific cancer diagnosis and current state of health
- Entirety of one's health and medical history
- Dr. Wald develops comprehensive nutritional plans for all forms of cancer as very few oncologists have the qualifications and thus training to properly manage the serious nutritional needs of those with a cancer diagnosis. No two cancer patients are alike even with the same exact cancer diagnosis and state.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF NUTRITION PROVIDED BY QUALIFIED HEALTH PROFESSIONALS!
Below are a few examples of studies that demonstrate the usefulness of nutrition as an essential adjunct to cancer care.
· Flaxseed can help some forms of chemotherapy work.

· Various natural products, when used correctly, can improve immunity and overall quality of life in late stage cancers including cancer of the bladder, breast, prostate, neuroblastoma, non-small cell lung, colon, mesothelioma, lymphoma, gastric, and osteosarcoma.

· Melatonin may prevent nerve damage (neuropathy) resulting from certain chemotherapy drugs.

· A special form of vitamin D (1, 25 D3) helps reduce the cancerous effects of estrogen, helps block estrogen from stimulating cancer cells and reduces inflammation in breast cancer.

Look at what the Nutritional Cancer Institute says about Nutrition:
The diet is an important part of cancer treatment. Eating the right kinds of foods before, during, and after treatment can help the patient feel better and stay stronger. Malnutrition (lack of key nutrients) can result in the patient's feeling weak, tired, and unable to resist infections or withstand cancer therapies.
· Nutrition therapy can help cancer patients get the nutrients needed to maintain body weight and strength, prevent body tissue from breaking down, help to rebuild tissue, and fight infection.
· Dietary guidelines for cancer patients can be very different from the usual suggestions for healthful eating.
· Nutrition recommendations for cancer patients are designed to help the patient cope with the effects of the cancer and its treatments.
· People who eat well during cancer treatment may even be able to handle higher doses of certain treatments. Being well nourished has been linked to a better prognosis (chance of recovery).
Nutrition is not a replacement for the standard of medical care such as chemotherapy, radiation and/or surgery (other other medical modalities). Some uses of nutrition may be considered Investigational or Experimental as defined below:
Investigational" or "Experimental
"Investigational" or "experimental" refers to the use of a service, procedure or supply that is not recognized by your insurance company and/or the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and/or the AMA (American Medical Association) or other appropriate boards and/or governing bodies or organizations (all of the aforementioned considered as “PLAN”), as standard medical care for the condition, disease, illness or injury being treated. A service, procedure or supply includes, but is not limited to the diagnostic service, treatment, facility, equipment, drug or device. A service is considered investigational (experimental) if any of the following criteria are met:
1. The services, procedures or supplies requiring Federal or other Governmental body approval, such as drugs and devices, do not have unrestricted market approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or final approval from any other governmental regulatory body for use in treatment of a specified condition. Any approval that is granted as an interim step in the regulatory process is not a substitute for final or unrestricted market approval.
2. There is insufficient or inconclusive medical and scientific evidence to permit the Plan to evaluate the therapeutic value of the service, procedure or supply. (Adequate evidence is defined as at least two documents of medical and scientific evidence that indicate that the proposed treatment is likely to be beneficial to the member.)
3. There is inconclusive medical and scientific evidence in peer-reviewed medical literature that the service, procedure or supply has a beneficial effect on health outcomes.
4. The service, procedure or supply under consideration is not as beneficial as any established alternatives and is not a replacement for the standard of medical care for your health condition(s).
5. There is insufficient information or inconclusive scientific evidence that, when used in a non-investigational setting, the service, procedure or supply has a beneficial effect on health outcomes or is as beneficial as any established alternatives.
If any portion of this notice is deemed unenforceable the remainder will remain potentially enforceable and in effect.
