So glad you were able to fight off your cancer. And I agree that the SAD is pretty bad. But, unprocessed meat is NOT a toxin. And the SAD is not unprocessed meat, it's a very processed diet. So generally, meat is healthy and the human body needs meat in order to repair and maintain cells. Yes, a cancer-compromised body, depending upon the cancer type, would need specialized and targeted nutrition, as a method to try & drive down cancer cells. Overall tho, eating meat and other UNprocessed animal foods should be thought of as a good diet for most people - most of the time. Many people have healed their own diseases just by including unprocessed animal foods in their diet.
"i think people who sell remedies/protocols/therapies with the word cure are heralders of false hope..."
LOL! I think Conventional Western Medicine - which sells potions & remedies, er... pharmaceutical drugs, surgeries, & MD visits - are definitely heralders of false hope, and further CWM protocols often cause additional symptoms, compounding the deterioration of someone's health and not solving their underlying health problem(s).
Furthermore, conventional medicine is expensive, in the maximum. At least with a nutritional protocol like Dr. Wahl's, you don't need to take out an insurance plan to be able to pay for it. Her "expensive" book is $35. Wow, not too bad. And if you don't have that $35, her plans are mostly glean-able on the internet if you search for it. She's not making off people's purchase their foods at the grocery stores or supplements at the health stores.
Any money she's getting from this, is almost entirely being funneled back into her research effort on MS, not to some big-pharma or big-healthcare or big-insurance Wall Street corporations, stockholders, lobbyists and corrupt politicians' pockets. (I'm wiping the spit off my lips!)
Let's see what are the differences between spending, say $35, and buying nutrient-dense foods & supplements at your grocery store, getting exercise, preparing your food in a simple manner, reading & eating? What's the cost of that, versus spending some ungodly sums of money (even if you bought a good insurance policy) for MD visits, tests, pharmaceuticals, conventional treatments or hospitalizations, etc? Thousands of dollars? And, after that, you STILL have to buy food to eat.
I recently got a laugh over a big-pharma ad. Bristol-Meyers-Squibb has this blah-blah new drug for RA, right? And, OMG Hooray! the lady can now pour pancake syrup over that stack of pancakes she's gonna eat!! But there's a warning of possible serious side effects too, for this "miracle" drug. Side effects too numerous to list. Things like serious infections, dizziness, headaches, fatigue, skin rashes, stabbing chest pains, oncologic side effects and malignancies developing (yikes!) and on, and on.
So, I agree with the OP of this thread, that people who prefer to try something with very low side-effects, possibly cheaper, and more holistic, should look around. Don't take anyone's word for anything, including conventional medicine's word.
In 460BC, Old Hippocrates said this wise thing, "Let food be your medicine." He also said, "All disease begins in the gut."
