Cancer/Disease Support provides those with cancer advice on how to eat & nutritional supplments
Cancer can be an opportunity for getting healthier than ever! The key to doing it right is to determine exactly the diet, herbs, nutritional supplements, form of controlled fasting and other natural approaches that fit your unique situation. Blood pH, oxidative therapies, hyperbaric oxygen, intravenous vitamin c and other considerations must be chosen correctly for each person’s cancer situation.
Cancer can be fought using the right foods, nutritional supplements (i.e, herbs) and other healthy lifestyle factors.
Dr. Michael Wald, The Blooddetective, provides responsible and personalized healing plans for his patients with cancer. “No two individuals with a cancer diagnosis are alike and each person needs particular nutritional approaches”, says Dr. Wald.
According to Dr. Wald, “The perfect-cancer-diet does not exist! What helps is the right nutritional lab workup, along with a “Blooddetective Work Up” of all body systems - and then, putting it all together in a way that is do-able for the individual.”
If you or a friend or loved one has cancer help them find the nutritional support that they need
Cancer is no joke - and neither is the dietary and nutritional approaches that you choose to get healthy. Depending upon the type and stage of cancer nutritional needs vary greatly. The right foods and nutritional supplements for one person with a cancer diagnosis could be very different than another person’s nutritional needs. Here is what you need to think about when searching for a specialist who provides nutrition for cancer care…
Nutritional deficiencies, insufficiencies (normal, but not optimal) and increased needs must all be considered when deciding upon nutritional supports for cancer.
Some cancers increase nutritional needs.
Different cancers result in malabsorption or malnutrition - and malnutrition can result in reduced immunity, increased risk of infection and poor outcome.
Certain types of chemotherapy are toxic to healthy cells and nutritional supports may help protect healthy cells - in individuals who are receiving and not receiving chemotherapy.
How much of each nutritional supplement one takes with cancer varies depending upon body weight, metabolism, genetics, diet, stress, sleep quality and type(s) of chemotherapy or radiation.
Certain types of chemotherapy work well with certain foods and nutritional supplements and others do not work well together.
Antioxidants can be used with certain forms of chemotherapy and radiation if used correctly. Some well-meaning oncologists mistakenly assume that their patients should not take antioxidants thinking that they might interfere with “oxidant-acting” chemotherapy. On the surface this reasoning makes sense because if one chooses oxidant-acting chemotherapy then oxidation is the healing method…and taking an ANTI-oxidant would do the opposite (or interfere) with the chemo. The problem with this thinking is that it has been proven largely inaccurate. One major example relates to the anti-oxidant vitamin C. The term anti-oxidant is a misnomer, meaning that vitamin C (and other so-called antioxidants) are not actually antioxidants - they are POTENTIAL anti-oxidants or POTENTIAL oxidants depending upon the person that you provide them to. This is a complex concept, but the bottom line is that it is Dr. Wald’s believe, based upon his extensive research of the medical and nutrition literature, that the majority of so-called antioxidants reduce risk of infection in cancer patients, improve outcome, reduce side effects of radiation and chemotherapy and improve immunity - among other potential benefits.
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.
