My Dad has bladder cancer. It started out in his ureter, he had to have his kidney removed, and now it has progressed to his bladder. He just had a cancerous tumor removed. He has refused to get X-rays/catscans to see how far it has progressed. I'm afraid he is going to deny all conventional treatment so I have been looking extensively online for alternative therapies.
The most powerful supplements I have found with adequate scientific peer reviewed studies have been Vitamin D and Turmeric/Curcumin. (also Omega 3s)
I have now convinced him to start taking Vitamin D and Turmeric tablets. I have heard a lot of pet owners have actually had tumors shrink after starting to supplement their pets' diets with Turmeric.
Here are some links if any of you are interested. These are not extensive, but you can find plenty if you search a Journal database or use Google:
I know A LOT of people deal with cancer. As much as I Google, research, etc I know there might be individuals out there who have gone through this and have found their own research on supplements and may have a lot of knowledge.
Also, my Dad eats really unhealthy. We are talking gobs of butter, it's ungodly. He has a diet very high in saturated fat and animal proteins. He also drinks Pepsi like a fiend.
He does eat vegetables but the problem is when he eats them he loads them up with butter.
So I'm wondering if any of you have any tasty anti-inflammatory/cancer fighting recipes I could try on my family? (Note: They don't have to be vegan or vegetarian. My family eats meat.)
Also, do you know of any promising supplements that may help with cancer? Specifically tumors?
Thanks for reading. I am looking to eventually copy down a bunch of this research so we can have something semi comprehensive to turn to because I know we basically all deal with cancer some way or another in our lives. Any help or input would be great! Thanks in advance.
