Treating a Low-Grade Glioma

Monday, 24 October 2011 09:05 AM

Question: I’m 36, with a Grade 2 glioma. My doctor told me I have between five and 10 years to live. I bought your book “Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients.” Is there any other book, research, or websites that can help my search for a cure?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

I am sorry you are facing this terrible problem, and I shall pray for you. Unfortunately, I am unaware of a program that can cure a low-grade glioma. However, there is encouraging research that suggests we can reduce the growth of the glioma, and potentially arrest its growth. Most of this research is being done on the much more malignant glioma tumor called a glioblastoma multiforma.

The most encouraging results come from using curcumin, adhering to a ketogenic diet, drinking the green drink I discuss in my book “Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients,” and avoiding all excitotoxin additives (eat only foods you prepare yourself).

High-dose vitamin D-3 has produced some very encouraging results in arresting tumor growth. This entails taking a dose of 10,000 IU a day. Avoiding red meats is critical, as iron promotes tumor growth. It is always advisable for cancer patients to get an iron panel laboratory test. Also critical is avoiding omega-6 oils (corn, safflower, sunflower, canola, peanut, and soybean oils).

Mercury, as found in certain types of seafood and dental amalgam fillings, is also associated with brain gliomas.
