So does diet, play any part in autoimmune disease. My wife wants me to see a nutritionist who uses Leap (lifestyle , eating and performance. They use a MRT (mediator release test which is blood work. The whole deal will cost me close to 1000.00 this includes three meetings with a nutritionist to go over results and set up a plan. Good idea or not

Hi Wesbig, do you have any health insurance, as they would pay for a portion of the treatment, also they would be able to recommend a doctor who specilizers in this , it’s worth a try, even if you have to pay the full amount, health is worth it, without it , it could get worse. Lacey

My husband has been taking tumeric for 3 months. Two masses have disapeared and two have shrunk. He also had pin point radiation . Hard to know if it helped or not. Will continue to take anyway.

Diet plays a big part just as well as mind set. My husband has been following keto diet to starve the cancer as well as watching acidity . Lots of supplements. He feels great and results have been fantastic.He is also on cotellic and zellboraf. God is great Pam

You need pepper or my husband has tumeric with minerva. It helps your body absorb it. Pam

If you don’t mind my asking, which cancer is he using the keto diet for? From the meds I gather melanoma. What kinds of supplements does he mainly take?

Hi, this is Lacey, I also had non-hodgkins lymphoma and I swear by curcumin, I take one pill a day ofTurmeric Supreme with my vitamins and Ensure, every morning with a light breakfast, it has given me back some of the energy I lost from chemo and my tests have been clean and perfect numbers. I have been in remission since Jan. 2015, so we are doing something right. Good Luck.

curcumin is a lifesaver. i have both a narcotic and a muscle relaxant but they don’t touch the kind of pain from spinal stenosis/sciatica/other autoimmunes. i lost a kidney some years back and drs are adamant i don’t use nsaids (i would kill for aleve right now) i discovered curcumin over the internet at “natural healthy…” and they have a product called curamin that also has other healing natural herbs like boswelia. it’s a lifesaver for me, hope it can help someone else.

Boswellia has some positive research behind it for the pain of osteoarthritis and it seems to have some synergy with curcumin, for pain and other things.

I can’t take nsaids either and I’ve tried boswellic acids but maybe I’ll have another look at them in conjunction with curcumin. I’m wary of taking on too many supplements having had cancer and a recurrence. Oncologist warned against it.

Well glad to hear that he is doing well on his current regimen. Have you shared the list of supplements with his oncologist to make sure that there are no conflicts with his meds? Some nutrients at certain levels can actually increase cancer metabolism. Thiamine is an example.

My oncologist advised me against too many supplements. Not everyone thinks the same but I just thought that I’d share it.

Best wishes.

These were all suggested by our oncologist’s nutritionist. I will double check with pharmacist. Thanks Pam
