After the diagnosis

This is a wake up call to all cancer people.




In most cases - you will have time.


You need to spend as much valuable time that you have in finding out as much as you can about your cancer especially and cancer in general.


What you are having to contend with are rogue cells, that have broken away from the normally dormant and benign oncogenes that we all passess.

We all have around 52 trillion healthy cells in our bodies, and even a small cluster of rogue cells can only make up for up to 100 million cells in the early stages - so the odds are stacked against them - and yet they still survive and grow.

The battle against this life-threatening illness has to be fought at the cellular level, the smallest unit of life, that can replicate independently and are often called the “building blocks of life’ - and that means oxygen.


Oxygen in the air you breathe, in the liquids you drink and in the foods you eat.


Eerything you eat and drink or ingest, or think or do will have an effect on your cells.  So the thing to do is to help your  good cells to survive, whilst making it difficult or impossible for the rogue cancer cells to continue to thrive and grow unhindered.


You need to create a cellular environment that is hostile to cancer cells nnd which prevents or stifles their growth,


A high alkaline and oxygen environment, which at the same time provides for anti-cancer agentss and antioxidants that help to destroy them. and that means whole plant based food and liquids.

do's and don'ts

Whilst there are fast growing cancers, the majority of them are slow growing.


All cancer cells are graded from benign - not harmful - to medium grade (malignant) - slow moving - to high grade - fast moving.  For example, prostrate cancer has a specific measure called the Gleason scale, which measures from 1 = benign - to 5 = slow - to 10 = terminal.


However fast or slow the cancer is - as opposed to being benign - it needs to be dealt with.

These are some of the things you need to know about, apart from doing your own research.


Shut off or reduce the cancer food supply.


Cancer cells feed off glucose.

You need to reduce your sugar intake - that means cereals, grains, some root vegetables, most fruit and sugar should all be dealt with. Absolutely no processed foods as they are all high in sugar.

A high carbohydrate diet will feed the cancer cells and you need to starve them of their food source - so low or no carbs - again cereals, grains, wheat, pasta and processed foods and some root vegetables like potatoes.


All dairy products promote the growth of cancer cells.  Elsewhere on this website, is an article on Professor Jane Plant, who has shown that dairy products are a major cause of some cancers.  

Milk for instance, contains casein, a protein that aggressively promotes the growth of cancer cells.


Reduce stress which raises level of insulin, which also promotes the growth of cancer cells.  

Try conscious breathing or meditation.


Reduce weight as excess weight promotes the growth of hormones which in turn help to grow cancer cells.


Always try to get a good nights sleep, as melatonin, the calming hormone produced during sleep is also a powerful antioxidant.


Getting regular exercise is not only good for the body and the mind anyway, but it also reduces insulin levels, which is a cancer cell growth promoter.


Help your body to heal itself - its very good at it.


Get your mind round your cancer and the manner in which you deal with it day by day - it really helps.
