Fasting and Chemotherapy: what is the difference? Most people believe that chemotherapy and fasting are two completely different experiences. The truth is, they are very much alike, except for the length of time the treatment lasts.
During chemotherapy, your body will go through a series of changes to kill off all of the cancerous cells. While fasting, your body will go through changes as well. It will go without food, drinking nothing but water, and you will start to sweat. Both of these processes can cause dehydration and the build up of toxins in your system, especially if you do not start to get enough exercise.
When I started fighting breast cancer, I used a homeopathic program. It was based on the fasting method that I had learned about years ago from my homeopathic doctor. The program uses vitamins, herbs, and other natural ingredients that are designed to kill cancer cells while offering a fast to strengthen your immune system and give your body the resources to fight against tumors. It is a great alternative to traditional chemotherapy and has been very successful.
As I said, both fasting and chemotherapy had their own benefits. There are risks you should discuss with your doctor. It’s important to know that there is no cure for cancer at all. It’s possible that the treatment you’re considering could actually make your cancer return. Also, your immune system can be negatively affected if you go on a fast for an extended period of time. Always speak with your doctor before starting a fasting diet.
To prepare for fasting and chemotherapy, I would eat plenty of protein, vitamins, and liquids. It is best to eat one type of food at each meal. Also, take one vitamin a day, but take it in small amounts. If you are planning to fast only for one day, I would recommend taking multi-vitamins instead of vitamin supplements.
On the plus side, I was able to eat all the fruits, vegetables, and oils that I dislike! I also didn’t feel hungry or have any more cravings than usual. After one week of doing this, I’ve lost a few pounds, my skin looks better, and I feel more energized than I have in years. I definitely recommend giving it a try if you’re looking for a healthier alternative to traditional treatment.
During fasting, you should avoid anything that contains processed sugars, such as soda, chocolate, or juice. You may also want to stay away from meats that are high in fat, such as pork. You should also stay away from dairy products during fasting chemo. If you’re going to drink water, try to find an herbal tea to drink, rather than coffee. Herbal teas have a milder effect on the body than coffee and help to cleanse the body of toxins.
The great thing about fasting is that it’s easy! You can do it in your own home at anytime that works for you. This means that if you’re busy at work, you don’t have to sacrifice your treatment just because you’re not available to fast. For me, fasting worked well while undergoing my treatment for breast cancer, but I cannot guarantee it will work for you.
