Sorry guys, I don't know if I can do this diet anymore. It's too much sugar. Hard to believe in any diet. I'm going back to some more salads and low glycemic fruits and foods that are just more on the lower level like oatmeal or something. Man oh man, it's been rough for me. I just wish these problems would go away, I'm in too much pain, every day I'm hoping it's not the last.
then why is the gerson therapy totally reliant on plant foods??
the protocol calls for juicing which would give you the biggest sugar rush :P
i dont know - maybe you can point me to a study showing its efficacy?

Not necessarily Duncan. Fasting has other benefits. It allows the body to focus on the problems, such as the conditions that allowed the cancer to start in the first place. It's these simple associations (cancer feeds on sugar) that often get us in trouble.
cancer isnt simple which is why there is still no cure for many but medical research is making steps. 85% of childhood leukemia is now cured as an example.
But as you know "all cells use glucose for fuel." Well that is true for cancer cells too. But a fair amount of cancers (there are many different types) are unable to metabolise anything except glucose. Lowering blood sugar slows the growth. if you eat nothing then your body will start metabolising fat.
Except for the cancer cells.
If cancer feeds on sugar then how come so many people have reversed their cancer on exclusive fruit intakes lol!
'The Grape cure'
Carrot juice fasts
Gerson therapy etc. They are all 9/5/5. The only way to get higher sugar % would be to do a fast on refined sugar. Then you would be 100/0/0.
What about herbs when doing the juice fast? Also, try it for a week or 100 day?
Going 100 days is really reaching, but if I have enough faith in it, I might try, but I'll try a week and see how I feel. It seems like there's a lot of veggies and not much fruit on the list. Where did you get this info? Cool thanks man!
Hi, have you looked into the possibility that you have a fungal problem in your body? I have tried 80/10/10 a couple of times but it just wasn't possible because I would just keep feeding the fungus in the body. Fat levels didn't matter at all, I was even under 5% all the time.
I'm not going to bore you with my life story, I've been trying a lot of things to get rid of the fungus overgrowth (been on plant based diet over 2 years) and it seems like I might have found something that works for me. I've been taking an oxygen supplement for three days and the effect has been pretty amazing. I've been eating fruits all day without any issues at all, and my skin that normally dry up a lot is very moist. I'm not talking about simple candida issue here though, I'm talking about fungus overgrowth that I've had for over 20 years that has spread to a lot of places in the body.
So if you have ever taken a Candida test and score high on that, it might be worth researching oxygen supplement (for blood/white blood cells) together with probiotics (for your gut). Personally I think a lot of people on this board might have fungus issues, because if you start to get dry skin from eating lots of fruits, it can be a sign of fungus. It's like a sponge when you feed it and it blooms out.
Not sure if I can post link to the supplement I use, because it comes with $5 discount (ref link), so if anyone is interested in that just PM me.
Interesting. I've heard of candida, a nutritionist said that I had it, but who knows I've got to so many places. Oxygen supplement? We all love to breathe and get more oxygen :)
Interesting. Send me a link, I'll check it out. Honestly I try not to get entangled with supplement and stuff, but send me a PM of the link and your story and I'll look into it.
Yeah I thought this too. If you're eating too much fat and add that to a ton of sugar you're looking for an explosive kind of reaction. I had mild chest pains the first couple months LFRV.
I agree with the other posters about candida / fungal issues.
You should actually check out the condition he has then tell me a diet can cure it.
"Pheocrhomocytoma". look it up.
That's really good. I would have to copy and paste pheocrhomocytoma, because I can't spell it.
