View Full Version : Ever heard of obese person doing anti-cancer juice fast?
08-31-2007, 01:57 PM
I was just wondering if anyone has ever heard of a person weighing 300+ lbs. going on a 30-42 day juice fast where they were restricted to 7 cups or less per day of juice.
Reason being, I have a morbidly obese friend whose cancer may have come back. She says, "no more chemo forever".

She may want to check out what other cancer survivors have done in the way of healing themselves. There are a couple of threads on here concerning cancer.
Is she currently raw? Might I suggest if she's going that way, she find a good colon therapist, as well as someone who can so lymphatic drainage or at least some good reflexology.
Why is she being restricted on the juice?
A few books she may want to read: The China Study and anything by Norman W. Walker. A video she may want to watch is "Eating" by Mike Anderson (http://ravediet.com).
I wish her well,

Hi Revvell. :)
The reason for such a small amount of juice is that from what I have read if you are juice fasting to get rid of cancer, then you are supposed to not have much juice. The Breuss protocol is one example, and here is aonther:
The cancer supposedly feeds off of glucose in the blood. The idea with only small amounts of juice is to starve the cancer.
I'm quite new to raw and to juicing, so I'm not sure. I'm on this kind of juice fast myself, trying for 42 days. I'm doing it mainly to see what it will do to me, so I can tell others what to expect. But I don't think my results will be quite the same as what a person who weighs more than 300 lbs. can expect.
Very curious about this, because as hard as fasting for extended periods is, if a 42 day juice fast can shrink or even get rid of a cancer altogether...wow! :D
Thanks for your reply. Be well. :)

What's interesting is that so many people have eliminated cancer just by going from a SAD to a plant-based diet. My understanding (not my experience mind you) is that cancer cannot live in an alkaline body so, no matter how much juice one drinks, especially if it's raw and organic, there should be no problem. How they came up with that amount.. is weird to me... not 6 1/2 cups or 7 1/4? O.k., just playing here.
I don't think your experience will exactly match another's no matter what the weight is because there are so many other variables including what the food program was previously including caffeine, alcohol, soda, drugs, etc. I'll enjoy hearing your experience on this and I commend you for doing it yourself and logging results to share with others.

I believe it's more alkalinity vs acidity in the body. With cancer I would suggest to take it easy though because cancer means the body is VERY toxic and a sudden dump may not be good. I'd stair step it: SAD to cooked vegan to high raw, to raw, to juice fasting. Tha'ts just my opinion though.

Yes, so much of what I have read that seems legit says that cancer cannot live in an alkaline environment. I know that that has been proven correct in at least a peatry dish, and probably in some lab animals. And then there are people who have cured their own cancers by alkalinizing their systems.
'Stair stepping' is probably a better option for anyone who doesn't have a fast growing-cancer, or a large cancer which poses an immediate threat to life or continued welfare. I'm dead sure it is a better option for a person who is morbidly obese.
I'm just curious, really.
I do have a cousin who had a very fast growing cancer which she is afraid will come back soon. She's alread about 50% raw, but if Pet scan reveals more cancer, she's going to have to get on something that will put the hurt on it fast.
At her (cousin's) weight, she could probably pull off a juice fast. But my big friend probably can't. Still curious about it, though. *shrug*
Incurable means curable within.
That's a great saying. :)
Be well. :)
