View Full Version : Raw food and Cancer
06-27-2006, 12:05 PM
A friend of mine who is a naturopath has just been diagnosed with cancer. I had heard that there were several retreat centers and doctors who specialized in refining the raw food diet to address cancer. Does anyone have any good referral sources for this?

Living Foods Institute in Atlanta, Georgia with Brenda Cobb and Jane Holmes. I think she also has one in Florida.

Check out the Gerson Institute.
They even have a video that describes what they do on their website.
Here is a link directly to the video.

My mother went to Hippocrates in Florida and she is doing really well.

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend's cancer. I don't know if you have read the book 12 Steps to Raw Foods by Victoria Boutenko, but the foreword was written by Garbriel Cousens. He is the Director of the Tree of Life Rejuventation Center in Arizona and they help people with all aspects of health: physical, spiritual, etc. I am pretty sure that they help people with serious illnesses. Also, there is the Creative Health Institute in Michigan. I think both of these places would be good starts. I will keep your friend in my prayers.

I work there and we see many people with cancer every week. If your friend is a naturopath, s/he is open to natural things, so s/he would really be a good candidate to come to Hippocrates. I've seen so many miracles.

I am curious - if you have been on chemo, were you warned against taking in high anti-oxidant content foods/supplements?
I know that "they" are concerned that if anti-oxidants protect and strengthen cells, it might also protect the cancer cells from the chemo invasion, thus hindering the effectiveness of the chemo. I don't think that they have any hard and fast proof of this, but it is a concern to them.
It makes me wonder, then, WHAT do they expect us to eat - what passes for food in the hospital? White, bland, starchy cooked-to-death, dairy, meat and jello?
