When I was going through cancer treatment, I craved potato soup, bananas and oranges. I ate 2 bowls of soup and 2 bananas every day. I went through 5 pounds of oranges a week. I cut the oranges in quarters and sucked out the juice, leaving the pulp.
Since then I found out that some holistic doctors give their cancer patients high doses of vitamin C intravenously. Studies done by the National Cancer Institute confirm that high doses of vitamin C did help shrink malignant tumors. I also read that bananas are good at controlling diarrhea and I had a lot of that due to radiation and chemo.
My healthy diet consisted of more than just bananas, potatoes and oranges, but I seemed to crave them the most. My body instinctively knew what it needed to heal itself… and if you pay attention, so does yours.
