I thought I'd give this a try to post this question on this board. My husband recently found out that he has cancer cells in his lymph node. They think it might be thyroid cancer, he is getting an ultrasound tomorrow. I was wondering if by any chance, could eating raw help cancer? Which foods should I be making sure he eats? Thanks.

I'm sorry you're going through this! I don't know much on the subject, but the little I've read, I believe a raw diet would be very beneficial. Juicing especially. Carrots are great. I hope you get a better, more detailed answer than mine :)
May your hubby get well and be healthy always!

Take a look at the Gerson therapy for cancer. It includes lots of raw foods. Just google Gerson cancer and you will find the Gerson center. They have helped save many lives.
I haven't watched any of these but there are a few documentaries on this link that might hold some interest.
(you need to type cancer into the movie title search box and 4 should pop up)
There is also a free online one called phoenixtearsmovie(using a certain kind of hemp oil)that I watched some time back that I thought was very interesting initially but after doing some reading on the forum linked to it , I was disappointed with lack of case studies and just no real proof to substiante the documentary further.Having said that I certainly don't think it was a hoax either, just not sure what to make of it.
hope you find a solution.

On 'You Tube' there is a free video/movie called the "Beautiful Truth" . It is 1 and 1/2 hrs. long.
Please watch this if anyone you know has cancer. Michele, it will be the best vested 90 mins. you got. So much info packed into this documentary. Especially at the end with Charlotte Gershon.
Hope your husband watches it with you. And the best of health to you both.

I don't have any info on your question but wanted to let you know that I am hoping for the best for you and your husband.
I believe eating RAW will only help, not hinder cancer treatment, so why not eat it, that being said, it is of course pending him even wanting it, should his treatment make his mouth hurt a lot or what not. My mother went through Lymphoma a few years ago and RAW fruits and veggies hurt her mouth more than most cooked...but she ate what she could. :)
Best of luck and health to him..

get a copy of the wheat grass book by steven meyerowitz, and research the Hippocrates Health Institute and Ann Wigmores writings. Many case studies of cancers helped with wheat grass juice. Also Edie Mae Hunsberger in book, How I Conquered Cancer Naturally, although I haven't read that book directly but have heard it referenced extensively.
In this position - I would immediate start with wheat grass juice, for cancer meyerowitz recommends 10-20 ounces/day. But you can't start there, you would need to do 1-2 ounces a few times a day, and work up to avoid severe cleansing reaction. But if you fear the cancer more than being a little sick, go for it.
Although fresh is best, cold weather outdoor grown wheat grass contains much less sugar than young grasses grown indoors (cancer feeds on sugar), and I have mail ordered large quantities. It would take a minimum of 10-14 days to get to your own growing and juicing, so at least consider the flash frozen juice while you wait to grow your own. If you order by 2 pm they deliver next day. I get this for my mom - she says raw is "impossible" but the wheat grass helps her.
With the cold grown/flash frozen, I have had up to 10 ounces at a time without problems. with the home grown I am chocking on 4 ounces.
My advice, order the frozen wheat grass, and get some of these books and start reading/researching/etc, and start with a basic raw diet immediately until you can educate yourself.
The good thing about the Meyerowitz book is that he cites a lot of research - basic science research as well as case studies. Don't listen to people making wild claims with something to sell and no research but those endorsing the products. You will be desperate and afraid, but eat a lot of greens, salads, try to get organic/grow your own, do wheat grass, and read up on this before committing to expensive purchases (make an exception for the wheat grass). It will be expensive to fight this with food, and juices, but the best outcome can be gained as well. If you have room to garden - this is the season for planting leafy greens, lettuces, spinach, etc. they will be fresh flavorful and organic. If you don't have garden space, locate your sunny windows and try to grow what you can. Parsley is wonderfully nutritious, and a great addition to salads and raw crackers, etc. Grow baby lettuces and arugula in containers as well.
Best of luck to you both.

dark greens juice fasting is favored by many as it alkalizes the acidic body chemistry which about everyone has . and cancer cells thrive in acidic bodies . where as in an alkaline enviroment cancer cells are i guess sort of smothered out . wheat grass , easy to grow indoors or out , and other dark greens like spinach / dandelion / kale are what ide juice . and the raw diet is no doubt cancer fighting as in the first place all the cooked / processed garbage everyone lives on is fouling up our cells cutting off healthy circulation of oxygen and organic minerals , making these improperly standing cells prone to disease . clear out all the pollution and start supplying the cells a clean flow of oxygen and raw plant substances and they vitalize , in the process suffocating / flushing out the cancerous material to be replaced by vital properly nourished cells
