Smoothies for Cancer

by Jim A
(Edmonton, AB. Canada)

I'm trying to make healthy smoothies for cancer. I have metastasized colon cancer (stage four), and was on chemo until this past November (2009). One stubborn tumor is still growing. To get my immune system as healthy as possible, I'm making two smoothies daily, using my Vitamix blender.

In the morning, I make my fruit smoothie, and take it on an empty stomach (recommended). I use a combination of about five fruits - example: strawberries, blueberries, apples, oranges, papaya, banana, kiwi, pear, etc. To that I add whey powder, flaxseed, goji berries and a liquid - unsweetened soy milk.

My evening smoothie, usually taken about an hour before a light supper consists of five or more veggies - broccoli, spinach, asparagus, kale, carrots, colored peppers, pea pods, tomatoes and cauliflower. To that I also add flaxseed, whey powder and goji berries, using Minute Maid tetra packs of raspberry/banana juice or the like (for the taste) plus water for my liquid catalyst.

Having just developed this methodology of getting my fruits and veggies, are there any suggestions to add/delete/change my ingredients or procedure to maximize the benefit of the smoothies? I do eat other produce thru the day to aim for a balanced diet (well, heavy in the fruits and veggies).

Any thoughts or suggestions on the above would be appreciated.



You have been doing good at consuming fresh produce in your diet. How are you feeling now? Have you seen improvements in your health?

As you know... I am not a doctor. So I can't diagnose or prescribe anything for your condition. All I can do is say what I would do if I were in your situation.

If I were blending smoothies for cancer, I would avoid all high sugared foods in my smoothies, especially fruit juice. I would use whole fruit as much as possible. If you need it sweetened try using stevia and water instead. I would even switch from soy milk to unsweetened almond milk.

I would definitely focus on using berries... as they are the lowest in sugar.

One thing that I would add is psyllium fiber husk powder. This contains a lot of fiber and will help clean out the colon on a regular basis.

A supplement that my mom and my family took for our cancer was dehydrated aloe vera gel. Aloe vera can be a great immune booster and tissue healer.

I hope this answered your question. I hope that your body heals quickly!

Happy Blending!

Eating To Cure Cancer
by: Marcia B

Jim, I hope you are still out there and doing well. It is my hope you will go to Chris Wark's website Ho too had cancer. He had the surgery and went on an all out attack to make sure it didn't recur.
I was diagnosed with pre-cancer of the colon. My doctor wanted to remove 1/3 of my colon. I opted not to have that surgery because, it had not reached the cancer stage. I went on the Hallelujah Diet for about 6 months. Since that time, I have started eating lots of veggies (organic when I can get them) and fruit. without exception; NO MEAT, NO SUGAR, NO GRAINS (for breads and pastries) NO GLUTEN (it is inflammatory) NO DAIRY. Cancer is curable but, we must attack it with fervor and stay the course until we have a clean bill of health. Chris Wark has a Super Salad recipe on video (You Tube) that I eat every single day and will until I get a clean bill of health. He also have a great breakfast recipe with oats being the main ingredient. I add anything I think will work with it for extra nutrition. Try juicing at least 3 juices every day. I highly recommend carrot, celery, cucumber, pear, apple and carrot. This is a detox juice loaded with Vits. A, C and others. Good health is a life long pursuit. Hoping this finds you well. Stay the course........Marcia B Bogan
