Foods To Eat And Not To Eat For Ovarian Cancer
Food not the answer: There are a huge number of studies on diet and cancer that have yielded a morass of utterly contradictory results. The book that claims vegans don't get cancer assumed the accuracy of death certificates during mao's famine -- the health benefits have proved elusive to hard science. Why not eat what you like, avoid greasy / sugary / salty stuff, get enough protein & enjoy your life? ...Read more
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
Why do some people have to eat pureed food, what is pureed food, and when can a person be able to eat regular food?
What you love: If you have cancer, eat what seems right to you. A recent, hugely-expensive study of "healthy eating" (i.e., fruits, vegetables, all the politically correct stuff) for women with breast cancer was a total failure, as most people who really understand cancer would have predicted. I'd urge you to do everything to make your life rich and meaningful, whatever the outcome. Good luck. ...Read more
Is beyond diet a good option to choose to start a diet? They allow only to eat organic foods and they don't allow wheat, soy and corn. I am starving
Yes,no need 2 starve: I can not find many details without paying but i believe everyone should eat only organic if possible- see http://bit.Ly/19xax7e avoiding simple carbs like wheat ; corn is a well-proven method of losing weight-try quinoa instead! i don't feel all soy should be avoided-fermented soy like tempeh ; miso are ok in moderation.I avoid all those for a month every spring ; don't starve at all-see comment:. ...Read more
What are the best things to eat/drink for adequate nutrition if one is not able to eat solid food?
Depends on Reason: It really depends on the reason you are unable to eat solid foods. If from a stomach bug, you want to consume what you can tolerate and what is appealing with an emphasis on hydration (alternating water and gatorade). If it is because of, say, a broken jaw, protein shakes are a good bet. You can also puree fruits, vegetables, and protein so that you have relatively normal nutrition. Good luck! ...Read more
I know to eat in small portions and three meals, but what are the best foods to eat to lose weight?
Aim for at least 5: Servings of vegetables and at least 4 servings of fruit per day. Make it a goal to eat fresh, organic produce of varied colors. All of these different colored foods carry varied enzymes. ...Read more
What are some easy foods i can eat to help weight loss but still healthy for the fact that i'm breast feeding?
Soy and gluten free foods good for your body? I can't eat gluten/ dairy but I want to be healthy, but I'm not sure if all the stuff is healthy...
Depends: You can certainly be helpful without eating either as long as your diet is balanced otherwise. Soy is almost as good as animal protein in term of nutritional value (lacking B12 however) but is no better than many other protein sources either. At one time, soy was touted to be preventative of breast cancer but now the opposite may be true. The best answer is moderation and balance in nutrition ...Read more

Fake information: Sugar (glucose) is the OBLIGATRY energy source used by the brain and heart. Remove it from the human body and they are dead. It does not cause cancer. Carbohydrates are a good nutritional source for anyone at any age, when used as part of balanced nutrition. Anything, including water can be toxic to humans when used in excess.

Healthy diet: A sensible diet with plenty of protein and relatively little salt / grease / sugar will help with your life overall. But anybody telling you that there are magic cancer-fighting foods is "misinformed" or worse. Having cancer is bad enough without people giving you bad, subscientific advice. Good luck. ...Read more
Avoid acidity: During a gastritis flare, your stomach is producing too much acid. Using otc zantac, (ranitidine) etc can help but avoid foods that are acidic such as tomatos, onions, citrus (orange juice, lemons), spicy foods and caffeinated drinks since they are also very acidic. Eat smaller amounts, stay up right after eating, and try deeper green vegetables since they are more alkalanizing. ...Read more
Very important : Not every doc will agree with me, but i believe this is very important; it's a good idea for everyone, but esp. Important for those dealing with serious illness. While it is undoubtedly beneficial to minimize exposure to pesticides, the most important reason to choose organic foods these days is to avoid gmo foods-eating organic is the best way to insure this.See http://bit.Ly/19xax7e & comment:. ...Read more
Food to help lower LDL, Food to completely avoid. No need for a lesson about cholesterol please, just eat this not that?
Not the key: Despite all the "pop" talk, diet is not the key to managing high LDL cholesterol. It's mostly genetic, and the decision as to whether to medicate should be made judiciously. Limit very-high cholesterol foods, and prepare for a welter of contradictory studies -- some very poor-quality -- about omega-3's, saturated fat, and so forth. Aerobic exercise will help you far more than food choices. ...Read more
