Richardson Cancer Diet This is a nutrition-based approach to cancer prevention and healing
from cancer. Developed by a medical doctor, the focus is on providing the body with naturally anti-cancer and cancer-fighting nutrients.
CHEMOTHERAPY AND RADIATION SUPPORT
PolyMVA is a uniquely formulated combination of minerals, vitamins and amino acids designed to support cellular energy production and promote overall health by restoring certain nutrients that may be depleted during chemo therapy and radiation.
What Poly MVA Does:
Poly MVA is a promising new dietary supplement that may assist in boosting immune response, and healing damaged cells.
It is a uniquely formulated nutritional supplement containing a proprietary blend of Palladium and alpha-lipoic Acid (which we refer to as LAPd), Vitamins B1, B2 and B12, Formylmethionine, Acetyl Cystiene, and trace amounts of Molybdinum, Rhodium, and Ruthenium. It is designed to provide energy for the compromised body systems by changing the electrical potential of human cells, increasing the charge density of DNA within the cell.

The Alternative Health Approach to Cancer
New! Just Added: Skin Cancer Information
Important Disclaimer: None of the information shared here is intended to replace any needed
medical treatment. This article presents an alternative health view of cancer, how it can be treated and some of the controversy surrounding the
current use of chemotherapy and radiation.
Even if a person chooses to undergo chemo and radiation, the alternative health community believes that supplementing the diet
with foods containing cancer-inhibiting properties can help a person win the battle against cancer (see more on some of those foods later in the article). However, it's important to note that while actually undergoing radiation
or chemotherapy, your doctor may not want you adding as much as a vitamin so you must always, always check with your doctor.
Timing Critical with Supplementation: It's also important to note that some of the more
potent chelating herbs (such as red clover), vitamins and minerals may flush the chemo out as just another toxin in your body so it would be counter-productive to take them while actually on chemo
but many people do very well with recovery by adding such things before and especially after the chemo has done it's job.
Fully discuss your options with your doctor before making any changes. Seeking out a cancer specialist who is knowledgeable about, and supportive of, nutritional and alternative supplementation, is
vital if you want to treat your cancer in the most productive way.
What is the role of chemotherapy and radiation, in treating cancer?
Chemotherapy and radiation are introduced into the body of a cancer patient to destroy. Neither has any healing properties and both definitely also damage healthy
cells along the way to irradicating cancer cells. In fact, I consider these forms of cancer treatment to be a gamble the doctor takes, that the chemo will kill the cancer before it kills the rest of the body. These treatments also have such serious side-effects that may require strong medicine, often causing serious problems or drug addiction. Sometimes, the gamble works
but I personally don't like the odds.
Do certain foods help the body fight cancer?
Research has proven that eating certain foods can supply your body with cancer-fighting assistance:
An anti-cancer property has been isolated in the common carrot.
According to research done in the Netherlands, eating more green veggies may decrease your risk of colon cancer, due to their
Other cancer-fighting foods include foods containing a substance called indole-3-carbinol. Foods high in indole-3-carbinol include caggage, cauliflour and broccoli. Foods rich in indole-3-carbinol can help the body combat breast cancer.
Foods with capsaicin, like cayenne peppers and jalapenos, are also thought to be beneficial in helping the body
fight cancer due to their ability to neutralize nitrosamines; these foods are particularly indicated in cases of stomach cancer.
Do certain foods increase risk of cancer?
Yes, just as dietary choices favoring foods beneficial in the war on cancer can help increase your odds of prevention and survival, overeating foods known to increase risk can lower your overall odds.
For example, some studies indicate that a diet high in red meats
may increase risk of colon cancer.
Because of the level of heme in red meats, it is believed that they are cytotoxic. The term cytotoxic means something that has a toxic effect on cells.
The heme level in red meats also can cause cells to increase at a rapid rate, a medical term called
epithelial proliferation. If you are going to eat red meat, eating some spinach with it (to counteract the cytotoxic properties of the meat) might be good since studies have shown that spinach, and other green veggies have an inhibiting effect on the cytotoxic effect of red meats. However, not eating red meats if you have colon cancer
seems to be the healthier choice.
Again, this educational information is not medical advice, but an alternative health perspective. You should choose your cancer doctor very carefully, be sure you trust them, and then follow the advice they give you.

If you have had chemotherapy, or chemo has been prescribed by your cancer specialist, there is an important study that you need to read, about the longterm effects of chemo on the brain. Although the language on this site is rather scientific and detailed, the jist of this study is that chemo effects the brain for up to a decade after the chemotherapy treatment is over. Specifically, the person who has
had chemo has very altered cerebral blood flow, which impacts short-term memory tasks and short-term memory recall. This persistent brain fog is sometimes referred to as chemobrain. More on this subject: USA Today

If undergoing chemotherapy, it's important to be aware of these effects so that you can work with your doctor and family to deal with them. If you begin to experience forgetfulness or short-term memory problems, take steps to help yourself. Have family members present when you talk with your doctor, and ask them to take notes for you. Write down all important appointments and put them in an area where you will easily see them, and be reminded.
