I was diagnosed with colon cancer (adenocarcinoma of the sigmoid T2or3(?) N1(?) M0) at the end of May 2016 and was offered surgery. I decided that I would try nutritional therapies and other protocols as I have recently been researching the micro biome and understand how important this is for my long term health. I have followed lots of protocols, mainly alkalising my body, ensuring that I am well oxygenated, I have removed all sugar, carbohydrates, lactose, fructose from my diet, and added all the foods which research shows kills cancer stem cells. My symptoms have reduced significantly, with virtually no pain compared to the gut wrenching "stop me in my tracks" spasms which I suffered before diet change. So I am optimistic that my next scans will show that the tumour has either remained stable or more likely shrunk. I may still have to think about surgery, so would like to hear from people about their experiences - immediately post operative and after 10 years. My hesitance about surgery is because of advice that when the main tumour is removed this allows the cancer stem cells to travel around the body more easily and cause metastases. These can occur months or years later. The surgeon who advised surgery said that "nothing kills cancer" however the research I have read suggests that nutrition can kill cancer and achieve this without the negative side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
