I'm sorry, but that is the Big Pharma dominated paradigm dogma that I simply don't buy into wholesale.
First, my wife reversed her cardiovascular disease naturally with diet, exercise, and supplementation when her primary care doctor wanted her to go on statins.
Second, she is educating me about the politics and money behind the pharma-cancer industry as she is an attorney who used to work in Regulatory Affairs for a bio-engineering company.
Third, I don't have an obstruction and fiber is absolutely essential to efficient digestion. Broccoli is one of those super foods with anti-carcinogenic properties (if organic) that is not difficult to digest as the nutritionist claimed. My only problem is that I have been on a high fat, low fiber, pro-inflammatory diet for far too many years. I'm going to rely on PhD level experts in clinical nutrition on this one.
Fourth, as I mentioned before, I know people who have completely reversed their Stage IV cancers going the natural route. Sure, you may know some people who said they tried a natural treatment protocol, but I know from my wife's experience that it has to be diligent and extreme in order to be effective. It's not about just modifying a little here, a little there. We are talking about 1 hr cardio 5x/week, mega doses of the appropriate supplements, extreme veganism with juicing and intermittent fasting, and no deviations. The people I have known to go this route, including my wife, are met with disbelief by their doctors, who act completely stunned. This is because the industry is so dominated by the Pharma interests that alternatives are unfathomable. But, I have seen it with my own eyes and have heard of it by a number of people who were skeptical and dug into the data.
I am not going to make a decision because I have been fear mongered or bullied into it, so please don't waste time trying to convince me one way or another. I didn't think that that was what this site is about, from the description I read in the introduction posts.
