Are starchy foods bad for cancer patients
No Samantha- But she needs balanced meals: Image result for balanced meals
Balancing meals. Balanced meals include one food from each food group- Dairy; Vegetables; Fruits; Grains and Protein. The new MyPlate icon is a good representation of a balanced meal because all five food groups are included. When planning a meal, try to include "five of five."
base meals on starchy foods like potatoes, bread, rice or pasta. have some dairy or dairy alternatives (such as soya drinks) eat some beans, pulses, fish, eggs, meat and other protein. choose unsaturated oils and spreads, eaten in small amounts.
Eat well – NHS
I use olive oils….for cooking

Her doctor said she can have anything…..but I heard from some doctors that meats are not good for cancer patient….so this made me more confus

I can imagine, it would me too. A lot of m eat isn't good. I eat meat maybe 2- 3 month (red, lamb, etc.) Chicken, fish, pork..good stuff. Listen to her doctor. But as I said Samantha- she's dealing with a lot, so if she wants to eat something let her. Don't deprive her of anything unless her doctor says no or she's allergic to it.
Samantha- When does she go for her next CT scan?
I would like the dosages and recommendations for this as well for my husband. My husband still has no definitive diagnosis on his cancer and all the doctors will do is repeat PET scans at this point. It's frustrating and scary. We are looking into as many natural and supportive options possible and CBD/THC is one that we have started but we could use any additional information. Thank you Colleen for the links to the articles.

There is an article from flower to treatment
I have stage 4 lung and taking that. Anti tumor properties.
We are lucky here in Colorado. Marijuana is legal both medically and recreationally. Our doctors recommended it and gave my husband the medical marijuana card but we can also supplement as need be with recreational. My husband has a Stage 4 cancer of 'unknown primary' (after 10 months of testing and appointments)….we still don't know the cancer type BUT…….his tumor has gotten smaller and the overall lymph node activity has dropped every 3 months (confirmed via PET Scan) since he started using CBD and THC. Since we are doing no other treatment, we are cautiously optimistic that the marijuana is contributing to the decline in cancer activity. Our doctors are on board. There is an interesting article you can Google from the National Institutes of Health about the effect of CBD and THC for a number of medical concerns……there isn't much research yet because of the legal status but it being used for pain, inflammation and can in some way 'bind' to cancer cells they believe and kill the cells without harming healthy cells.
I am, as of tomorrow, 3 years cancer free from my breast cancer diagnosis and I too have started to use CBD only as a 'preventative'. I have noticed no ill effects. I use a small amount (vaping) before bed and it does relax me somewhat and I sleep well (ha ha). The CBD doesn't create the brain effects of THC but it seems to relax me and reduce some of my old lady pains that might otherwise keep me awake.
My husband has had no negative effects either……marijuana has been used for years and there don't seem to be long term effects for adults that are documented, so I figure……..adding it to all the other treatments and options……….why not!!

Hi @cmeyers, welcome to Connect. I know that as a new member you cannot post links yet. We do this to prevent spammers from posting.
For that reason, I did a little bit of research on Afaya Plus produced by Hyatt Life Sciences. The science they post on their website is not very thorough, so I had to do a bit of digging around. The website was careful however to post this caution:
"**These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease."
One of the main ingredients in Afaya Plus is Arum Palaestinum (Black Calla Lily). I found one "in vitro" laboratory study looking at the potential Cytotoxic activity and phytochemical analysis of Arum palaestinum Boiss https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2221169115001859. An "in vitro" study means that is was conducted in a lab in a glass vessel like a petri dish or test tube. Cytotoxic refers to a substance or process which results in cell damage or cell death. The prefix "cyto" refers to cell and "toxic" to poison. This study observed cytotoxic activity in vitro.
I think this may be the phase 1 study to which you refer:
– Potent Antitumor Effects of a Combination of Three Nutraceutical Compounds https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-018-29683-1
As with any supplement, complementary or alternative therapy, it is best to discuss with your oncology team before investing both in terms of hope and money.

Hi, i am also looking for help for my father. In search for help we got in contact with Dr. Cristina Sanchez and Aunt Zelda’s. Since we do not live in US we will take the recommendations and work with what we have here.
Little intro: My dad was diagnosed with Prostate cancer in 2004 and after going through all the possible conventional treatments the disease progressed to metastastatic and only one bone metastasi involved but it has concentrated on the lungs and so far he had 3 lung surgeries. The last surgery was end of September 2018 but the tumor markers instead of dropping have been going up.
I started researching CBD/THC OIL RSO we got the oil with high THC 800mg/ml but had difficulties in understanding the right doses. So Aunt Zelda’s helped me suggest getting 120mg of CBD daily and 250mg of THC slowly working up to this dose of THC and administering both sub-lingualy. We will see how things go and if needed we will increase the dose of THC.
Good luck and best wishes

Hi all my father-in-law has just been diagnosed with lung cancer and I was wondering how many of you have tried medicinal marijuana. It’s not legal here so can’t go to the doctor but we grow our own have done for years but don’t know much about this I know how to make tincha and edibles etc aalong with rso any help would mean the world
Hi @antzk1488 welcome to Connect. You'll notice that I moved your message to this existing discussion about lung cancer and the use of CBD and medical marijuana. Click VIEW & REPLY to scroll through through the past messages where members share experiences and research articles.
What type and stage of lung cancer does your father have?
@antzk1488– Welcome to Lung Cancer Support Group and Mayo Connect. I am a lung Cancer Survivor of 21+ years. I use CBD oil, the tincture, to help with anxiety and depression as I also have PTSD, which is another story. I think to start off with you need to understand that THC or CBD oil have not been found to "cure" cancer. No one knows as yet how THC and cannabidoil acts on cancer. But from all the discussions here you can see that a lot of people have benefited from it in one way or another.
What type of caner does your father-in-law have? Has he had any treatments, surgeries, etc? Is he in pain, uncomfortable, etc.? Has he smoked any of your weed before? If he has then I would suggest having him use the same dosage and go from there. However please inform his oncologist. I hope that you will get back to me.
