And here's one on sesame seeds: https://anticancerclub.com/recipes-and-eating-healthy/seeds-cancer/

 

"An anti-cancer diet often includes no or reduced dairy intake. Invariably I get asked the standard question “but where do I get my calcium from then?”

 

Enter the mighty little sesame seed. This flat seed with its delicate nutty taste is a nutrient-dense powerhouse and one of the oldest known seeds used for centuries in warmer climates.

 

An excellent source of calcium, one cup of natural sesame seeds contains 1,4 g of calcium while one cup of whole milk only has around 290 mg (Murray, 2005). They are also high in anti-oxidant Vitamin E, helping ward off oxidative damage particularly to the liver, an organ that every cancer patient needs to nurture to ensure it can perform its detoxification functions optimally.

 

I love recommending it to cancer patients in need of extra protein as this little seed contains more than 35% protein, more than any nut. About 50% of it is healthy oil, add to that its high phytosterol content and you have an amazing food to help lower cholersterol. Phytosterol is a plant compound similar in structure to cholesterol, it can displace cholesterol in the gut and help excrete it in your stool. Studies have shown a significant reduction in blood levels of LDL-cholesterol, the so-called “bad” type we do not want an excess of."

Here's an Anti-Cancer Club article on avocados:  https://anticancerclub.com/recipes-and-eating-healthy/avocados-and-cancer/

 

"Avocados are naturally high in (healthy) fats, rich in antioxidants and phytochemicals, making them an excellent addition to an anti-cancer diet. Lindsay uses avocados in a healthy favorite salad.

I stumbled upon this web site (The Anti-Cancer Club  https://anticancerclub.com ) this morning and thought others might find the resource useful. I don't have cancer, but have family that does. This looks like a great place to research solutions and approaches. So yay! Smiley Happy

 

Take a look at this webinar they've posted, for example, (click through to watch the webinar):

 Reframing Distressing Thoughts and Other Mind Body Techniques Reframing your thoughts can change your journey.  This video  is a must watch full of very valuable coping strategies and information from Rob Rutledge,MD who is running the #WelllnessChallenge2017.

Here's hoping for the very best for all of us!
