Hi everybody .
My mom was diagnosed with idc cancer today. there are 3 lumps on her left breast that were biopsied on monday. the results came back today. IDC. Now she has to meet with a doctor at the beginning of next week. I'm sure they're going to want to perform a mastectomy. I would rather take the Wigmore approach to fighting the cancer. Can anyone give me some direction to go as far as treatment besides the surgery/chemo route. She's 62 had her thyroid removed 2 years ago and now this. Thanks in advance for any help you can share. Oh yeah, we live on Cape Cod where 1 in 5 women are at risk for breat cancer. That's what my mom was told today. there's got to be an enviromental factor to that besides diet. That seems like an awfully high rate of cancer for a man made island.

I was cruising around Dr. Gabriel Cousens site, treeoflife.nu and was reading an article about not eating dairy (looking for inspriation to give up cheese) and he recommended this book:
The No-Dairy Breast Cancer Prevention Program: How One Scientist's Discovery Helped Her Defeat Her Cancer (Paperback)
by Jane Plant
You can read the beginning of the book on Amazon.com and it seems like a very helpful book, written by a breast cancer survivor who is also a science researcher.
Dr. Ruth Heidrich is also a survivor and medical doctor. Revvell gave her a fantastic interview (revvell.com) and Dr. Heidrich's book are also on Amazon.
Our thoughts are with you, your experience could happen to any of us.

I can offer only this...positive attitude...check out crazysexycancer.com.....
cancer cannot survive in an oxygen rich environment..lots of green, chlorophyl rich foods and drinks....no sugar, sugar feeds cancer...no dairy....carrots.... my prayers and light to you and your mom.....:)

cancer thrives in an acidic body. Gotta get her cleaned out and alkaline.
My prayers are with you and your mother

Thank You .
I've been telling her for years about acid/alkiline . She needs to hear it from someone other than myself. I'm trying to find a health center that will take her with her conditions. She's the type that needs to hear it from a trained profesional and not her son. Her biggest problem is eating healthy. I've been trying for years to get her to eat /live better. Plus I have my sister and father to try and convince that this is the path she should take(if she wants to go in this direction). I'm convinved that it's better to regenerate you internal system rather than kill it to fight any sickness or disease. I just hope she gives me a chance to prove it to her.
Thanks for taking the time to read this .

I just wanted to add my support, my Mum is 61, had her thyroid out 10 years ago and now has stage IV rectal cancer. I always knew she would go the chemo/radio route for treatment but wanted her to get onto as much raw as pos to try and support her. It wasn't easy, she lives 8 eight hours away and when we arrived after Christmas she had already prepared meat and fish dishes and was drinking loads of wine. As the week went on I was able to explain that by suggesting that she change her diet wasn't an attack on her or blaming her but that it was necessary to help her heal. She seems to be doing pretty well now, with enzyme sups to take with cooked meals. The prob now is that I'm not there and my brother is and he seems to think its all a load of rubbish so I am having to start again explaining it all to him. She starts 5 weeks mega treatment on Feb 18th and I plan to go down near the end, armed with juicer, green smoothie info etc to get her back on her feet after all the crap she will be dealing with.
What I wanted to say was that raw will really help your Mum even if she decides to go conventional for now, cancer is frightening and when the only way you know is allopathic then its just as frightening to leave that behind. Then once you have convinced her the family won't be easy either. Sow the seeds to raw and self help, be there to answer questions and don't get too upset if they turn you down. PM me if you like, we are both going through very similar things and it stinks!

Besides my interview with Ruth Heidrich, I've also interviewed cancer survivor Brenda Cobb. You might wish to download the interviews onto a cd and give them to your mom and anyone else you know of who has cancer.
Also, on Feb. 5, I'll be posting an interview with Mike Anderson who produced the movie ("Eating" ~ available on my website) about his latest dvd, "Healing Cancer from Inside Out". That will also be available on my website very soon. Sometimes people have to hear/see these things from people other than those they love and those who love them.
All the people mentioned, Ruth, Brenda and Mike are closer to your mom's age which may help as well.
