Have you had patients or reports of people with non-Hodgkins lymphoma whose health has improved or lives have been extended by following the BTD?
Have you read my blog about Jim, my bother in law? Jim is still doing very well, now close to eight years after having been diagnosed with both Hodgkin's Disease and Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
I think the program has a lot to offer those folks trying to do something positive for themselves in conjunction with proper and appropriate concentional oncology care.
General, the best source for information on using the BTD for situations like this is the D'Adamo Library Book on Cancer which you can purchase online, at any major book seller or check out from your local lending library.
There's lots of good, reliable and sound info in there.
The trick is to take someone and turn them into what Bernie Siegel calls 'the exceptional cancer patient.' I always tell my cancer patients that no matter how grim or dire the circumstances, there is always a minimum percentage of survivivors, and my job is to get my patient into the survivor group.
There are lots of unexplored links between blood type and cancer; we are now just beginning to scratch the surface. Certainly choosing foods according to their blood type reactivity is a smart idea if your are undergoing chemotherapy or radiation: It's just another way to help conserve resources.
A story that I told in the cancer book sums things up nicely.
One of my long term cancer survivors used to run a support group at a cancer center in NYC. She would always mention the BTD, but most people would just fob it off. One day the head of radiation oncology ran by in a hurry, glanced in, then kept going. But in about ten minutes he returned. He was born in China, so his English was rather clipped. He pointed to the copy of Eat Right For Your Type that my patient had on her chair.
'Good book. Very good book.' he said, gesturing with his finger.
You could have knocked over my patient with a feather.
'How do you know about this book?' she asked.
'Oh,' he replied: 'Last person in support group always waving that book.'
Funny thing about so-called medical 'closemindedness': After my brother-in-law had obviously beaten the odds (he was given 3-6 months with treatment) he was asked to return to the Medical Center, where he described the scene as a 'sea of white coats.' They took note of every element of his protocol; foods, vitamins, herbs, etc. He was surprised to find out that this was not uncommon in seemingly miraculous type results.
You see, cancer has a virtually zero placebo effect, so when something unexpected happens in a cancer patient (especially one under their direct care) even the conventional oncologists want to know about it.
