Brain cancer survival rates vary widely depending on the kind of tumor as well as the age of diagnosis. Along with doctor-recommended treatment, there are some natural treatments that might help your chances of getting better.

About two-thirds of newly diagnosed brain tumors are not cancerous, according to the American Brain Tumor Association. Brain tumors affect many children, with only leukemia being more common.

Using foods and natural compounds can have a positive impact on the health of brain cancer patients, helping to generate healthier cells and contributing to healing, according to Prevention.

Here is a list of some of the most potent foods for health and healing to combat brain cancer:

1. Japanese green tea is one of the richest polyphenol sources in the world, according to WebMD. The polyphenols are housed within catechins, which have disease-fighting properties.

2. Studies have shown that pomegranate juice can slow down even the most aggressive cancers, according to Prevention.

3. Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory, which can be mixed with black pepper and used in soups.

4. Fresh ginger can destroy cancer cells and slow tumor growth.

5. A group of vegetables including Chinese cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, bok choy, and Brussels sprouts contain anticancer molecules that detoxify the body of cancer-causing substances and actually cause cancer cells to commit suicide.

Don’t boil broccoli or cabbage or it will destroy the beneficial compounds.

6.
Garlic, Onions, Leeks, Shallots and Chives all contain sulphur compounds that can encourage cancer cell dealth.

7. Soy products contain isoflavones that prevent estrogen and testosterone from stimulating cancer cells.

8. Fatty fish eaten two or three times a week can slow cancer cell growth.

9. Citrus fruits contain flavonoids, which remove toxins from cells.

10. Berries are also rich in polyphenols, two of which actively promote cancer cell death.

11. Dark chocolate is high in polyphenols, but must be over 70 percent cacao to have any effect.

These foods on their own haven’t been shown to cure brain cancer on their own, but oncologists are just now starting to realize that nutrition can help or hurt cancer patients as they are getting other treatment.
