Diet

Diet

I'm wondering how important is diet? When I was first diagnosed I read a lot about diet. But when I asked my Dr he said eat what ever you want.... I'm wondering if any one has any other thoughts on this. Has your Dr talk to you about diet. I read alkaline diets are good. Because I'm still on no treatment and would like to stay that way. I'm wondering if any one has thoughts on it

I have found that some foods just do not agree with me since my chemo pre-SCT. My Onc/Hem said not to eat what bothers me and my transplant Dr. says it will take months. He said the fiber is hard to digest. Another huge concern is food safety if eating raw/fresh products.

I have found that my medical doctors practice western medicine and don't give much advice on diet. I've also read a lot concerning others that have had cancer and achieved remission and diet was a big factor for them achieving this. Functional Medicine Doctors do focus on diet and I've been researching them to see if I should go to one. Unfortunately, they aren't covered by insurance. I've been juicing weekly to help get more nutrients and started on some supplements to improve my diet. Everything I've read says cut out all sugar, but that is really hard for me. I'd say do your research and make choices that make the most sense for you.
