Your book was recommended to me by a certified nutritionist/pharmacist, who has known me since 1990. May 2001, I was diagnosed with breast cancer-infiltrating, T1, node negative. I had a lumpectomy, chemotherapy and radiation. I was cancer free until March 2004 when it returned to my spine, the L-1 disk. After weekly rounds of chemotherapy for six months at Duke University, followed up with five weeks of radiation, I was finally in remission. Tumor markers on April 8 were 89.6. By December 15 they had dropped to 22.
Every three weeks I receive Herceptin and Zometa every three months. Since December 15 until May 21, we noticed a trend of my tumor markers rising: 22 to 28.4.
After talking with my certified nutritionist/pharmacist, who knows of all the drugs I am on, he recommended your diet. I started it immediately on May 26. My latest tumor marker of July 21 was 26. I am looking forward to the next tumor marker test in early September to see if this downward trend continues. I am convinced that sugar negatively affects my body and probably feeds the cancer. In addition, I have lost 12 pounds of the 25 pounds that I put on due to chemotherapy and radiation. I am 5’11″ and weighed 163 prior to my first cancer treatment in 2001. I am now 10 pounds from my goal.
Thank you for a succinctly written book.
