Now that we know that Ana has an inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor, we know what we have to do. Put her on an anti-inflammatory diet! The word inflammatory is right there in the diagnosis, it’s simple! Well not really, the truth is that nobody knows if the tumor will respond to treatment enough to save Ana’s liver. The doctors don’t expect it to work but they think it’s “reasonable” to try. It’s clear that not only do we need a miracle; we need to make a miracle happen. When Ana is all better she will be one of those cases this surprises everyone.
There are tons of alternative cancer treatments and now is the time to start taking a real look at some more options. So I’m officially asking for suggestions. Personally I feel that some alternative treatments show real promise and some may not fit our situation. If you read Jackie’s post Breakdown you already know how overwhelmed she is so please DO NOT contact her with your suggestions, this will be my project, so please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I fully expect to be overwhelmed with great ideas as well. That’s why I’m asking that you email me rather than post them to the blog it will be much easier for me to save and organize emails.
How I Plan To Choose
Dr. Hochberg warned us that some alternative treatments have worked, but without large scale studies is can be risky business especially when it comes to drug interactions and the efficacy of the treatment that she prescribes. I have to say, I agree with her 100% so I plan to proceed with caution and I will probably focus on educating myself on one alternative at a time.
Back To the Diet
I joked earlier about the simple diet change, but as it turns out there may be something to this. There is a connection between cancer an inflamation and it seems like a low risk place start. I’m just starting to read about anti-inflammatory diets and would love to know if anyone knows anything about them and/or cancer’s connection to infamation. Unlike other suggestions, I think it would be better to post anti-inflammatory stuff here for public discussion. So go ahead and post a comment, let’s bounce ideas off each other. My biggest question so far is how do I get an eleven year old kid who is used to eating french fries and pizza to eat brown rice and beans? I need some tasty recipes!
