Natural Help for Lung Cancer

Monday, 10 December 2012 08:49 AM

Question: My mother has lung cancer and an integrative doctor advised her to stop taking B vitamins. He also recommended fermented wheat germ, Spanish black radish, and black raspberry capsules. Will these substances help with lung cancer?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

In general, a person should avoid certain vitamins if they have cancer. For example, B12 and folate (folic acid) should be avoided as they increase cell reproduction. Folate should be used when folate-blocking drugs, such as 5-FU, are used, and studies show it improves the anticancer effectiveness.
I would strongly discourage taking fermented wheat germ as it is very high in glutamate, which powerfully stimulates the growth and invasion of lung cancers.
The most powerful anticancer natural products include curcumin, quercetin, luteolin, silymarin, ellagic acid and DHA.
A low protein, high vegetable diet (especially blenderized vegetables) that is also low in sugar, simple carbohydrates, and omega-6 oils combines the many anticancer effects of natural substances. Iron should be avoided.
