Evans Food Sensitivity Assessment for Adults
The topic of diet and cancer can be found often in the media. There are such diverse ideas about what to eat to be healthy, it usually results in most of us being confused. Low fat, low carb, green smoothies, vegetarian – the possibilities are almost endless. How on earth do we figure it all out? A few weeks ago I posted a story about the Metabolic Typing diet which I believe helps to individualize this question. Some people do well on a more vegetable based diet while others seem to do better on a diet that has at least some meat protein.
The topic of diet and health as it relates to cancer is even more confusing. Organizations such as Inspire Health who do an outstanding job of helping cancer patients maximize their health recommend multiple servings of fruits and veggies a day. These foods offer a multitude of healing phytochemicals to help strengthen the body’s immune system. The article referenced below offers a philosophy that is almost completely opposite yet the results are very impressive. What is true? Or, perhaps, is there a middle ground that embraces the best information from both? I normally don’t believe articles that make such grandiose claims to cure cancer but I have witnessed the power of a Paleo diet on a friend of mine. As the article reports, her cancer numbers also dropped below her numbers at diagnosis when following this type of diet for year. Every single marker for health improved dramatically and her physicians are stunned. They had previously told her that her cancer numbers would not ever improve unless she took chemotherapy. She has proved them wrong and has already lived several years past their prediction for her. Her cancer doctor even acknowledged that it is true – cancers thrive on sugars and complex carbohydrates.

So, how do we make sense of this? What should we eat and what should we feed out children? Here are a few of my thoughts that are particularly important if you have cancer or any other serious or chronic health problem:
8. When you are hungry, eat something with protein or a healthy fat such as avocado as well as a carbohydrate so that your blood sugar doesn’t plummet an hour later.
