    Dandelion weeds and cancer therapy

    I have read sever articles on dandelions weeds and
    Colon cancer
    There is a small study being done in Windsor Canada
    And several stories of people adding years
    To their life by adding dandelion tea to their
    Anyone else hear of this
    I do drink the tea on e a day
    I make a lemon aid with it
    I do try to do everything I have read
    About foods that help fight cancer
    Not that I would ever ever not follow
    A doctors advice and take the medications

    I make a curry twice a week with loads
    Of garlic and onions
    And drink a kale with apple and Cinnomon cocktail

    I eat blueberries fruits low on sugar
    Switch up my vegetables often

    And don't eat white bread and white flours
    White rice

    Don't know if it helps But as long as I am alive
    It's working
    Anyone else follow a diet plan
    Not instead of treatment but in combination
    With therapy

    I have read up on foods that right cancer
    And I completed a list of foods in short the best answer is say no to all processed foods
    Don't eat processed foods at all including processed meats such as ham
    Eat more beans and nuts fish
    Avoid white foods flour white rice white potatoes

    Eat a colorful plate
    Make it a family habit
    We only have cake if we make it homemade

    You gotta eat anyway

    Still I make a curry beef that's to die for
    Its loaded with everything
    And my ingredients list are what's in the fridge

    I just put it in a big pot in thr oven
    Curry spice (Turmic ) Lots

    Cinnomin (just a little )
    What ever you have in your fridge
    In your favourite amounts
    Add spinach

    Serve with chick peas or and white broccoli
    And curry sause
    Over brown rice or on its own

    I don't eat peanuts because if they are stale
    They can be carcingitic

    I use a variety of fats when cooking
    Olive oil
    Cocconut oil
    Grape seed oil
    Walnut oil

    I eat sardines often and avoid canned foods

    Still I will admit sometimes the best diets and all
    The love in the world and cancer still kills
    Our loved ones

    So we fight blindly with heart and give it out best

    To date: 1 cancer, relapse, second relapse/mutation into 2 cancers, then 3 cancers simultaneously, 20 chemotherapy/GVHD drugs in 11 regimens (4 of them at least twice), 5 salvage regimens, 4 clinical trials, 5 post-transplant immuno-suppressant/modulatory drugs, the equivalent of 1,000 years of background radiation from 40+ CT series scans and about 24 PET scans.
    Both lymphoid and myeloid malignancies lend a certain symmetry to the hematological journey.

    Believing in the redemptive value of suffering makes all the difference.
