Many people have asked us for a list of foods that Stefan ate while battling his prostate cancer. Our main focus in curing his cancer was to deny the cancer what it loves (sugar and acid) and boost the immune system (eating fresh foods high in nutrients, avoiding all processed foods, and taking supplements prescribed by a cancer nutritionist). Food became a tool for healing. The following list was created after many hours of research. For more information about Stefan’s experience, please read Our Journey with Prostate Cancer.
|avocado||lemon||buckwheat groats (raw)||arugula||almonds||apple cider vinegar||asparagus||decaffeinated green tea|
|coconut (fresh and oil)||limes||millet||bok choy||Brazil nuts||basil||beets||lemon water|
|nuts (see “protein”)||oats||cabbage||edamame||cayenne pepper||bell peppers (red/orange)||organic Rooibos Tea|
|olive oil||quinoa||chard||hemp||chili powder||broccoli||soy milk (unsweetened)|
|paprika||sprouts (all kinds)|
Note: Fruit and starches are not included in this list. Denying the cancer sugar was a crucial element in Stefan’s healing process, even natural sugars. Once we were confident that Stefan’s cancer was eliminated, we began to slowly re-introduce starch and natural sugars back into his diet.
This list was developed by Kathy Parnay. It is always important to consult your physician and/or nutritionist before attempting any major diet changes.
