Dr. Michael Greger tells us that the best way to starve cancer is with a plant based diet. This is not new information, studies have shown us that eating plant strong can prevent cancer and facilitate recovery from cancer. Sadly, most people aren’t willing or are unable to make the lifestyle changes that prevent cancer, obesity, autoimmune diseases and other often preventable medical conditions. If you are ready to make the lifestyle changes that will support you in your health and wellness, medical hypnosis at Seattle hypnosis and Bainbridge hypnosis is for you. Call or email me and find out how you too can learn hypnosis and change your lifestyle.
Starving Cancer with
Methionine restriction—best achieved through a plant-based diet—may prove to have a major impact on patients with cancer because unlike normal tissues, many human tumors require the amino acid methionine to grow.
Forty years ago, a landmark paper was published showing for the first time that many human cancers have what’s called absolute methionine dependency, meaning that if you grow normal cells in a Petri dish without given them the amino acid methionine, then normal cells thrive; but without methionine, cancer cells die. Normal breast cells, for example, grow no matter what, with or without, but leukemia cells—they need that extra added methionine to grow.
What does cancer do with the methionine? Well, tumors generate gaseous sulfur-containing compounds with it – that, interestingly, specially trained dogs can actually detect. There are mole sniffing dogs that can pick out skin cancer. There are breath-sniffing dogs that can pick out people with lung cancer. Pee-sniffing dogs that can diagnose bladder cancer and, yes, you guessed it, fart-sniffing dogs for colorectal cancer. Doctors can now bring their lab to the lab…
Here’s the thinking: look, smoking cessation, consumption of diets rich in plants, and other lifestyle measures can prevent the majority of cancers. Unfortunately, people don’t do them, and as a result, each year hundreds of thousands of Americans develop metastatic cancer. Chemotherapy cures only a few types of metastatic cancer…Unfortunately, the vast majority of common metastatic cancers, like breast, prostate, colon, and lung, are lethal. We therefore desperately need novel treatment strategies for metastatic cancer, and dietary methionine restriction may be one such strategy.
So, where is methionine found? Particularly in chicken, and fish. Milk, red meat and eggs have less, but if you really want to stick with lower methionine foods, fruits/nuts/veggies/grains and beans are the best. In other words, “In humans, methionine restriction may be achieved using a predominately vegan diet.”
Just last Thursday I wrote that “Almost daily new and exciting studies on the health benefits of a plant strong starch based diet are emerging.” I have eaten primarily a starch based diet for over 17 years now and I can tell you that it’s been surprisingly easy. Not only did I lose more than 100 pounds, my health improved. The medical hypnosis skills that I have learned and that I personally use can help you make lifestyle changes to improve your health. Learn hypnosis and choose the best in every thought and every bite.
