Dr. Diana Milusheva specializes in anesthesiology and intensive therapy, but is interested in alternative methods of treatment. He studies hypnotherapy and applies the principles of dietetics in the recovery period after a serious illness. Dr. Milusheva also practices therapy with Dr. Bach's flower essences, regulatory medicine and nutrition. Dr. Milusheva talks about how people with oncological diseases should eat
Dr. Milusheva, what kind of food is useful for people with oncological diseases?
- Many doctors find it difficult to give specific advice on nutrition to patients, and they do not attach much importance to it. Dietetics is not what conventional medical doctors usually understand unless they are specialists in the field. In most cases, it is believed that one should start with broths and porridges. This is deeply incorrect because these foods have undergone heat treatment which destroys all enzymes (enzymes are mostly protein molecules). Initial feeding should start with fresh (freshly squeezed fruit juice). It is best if it is from a highly alkalizing fruit such as lemon or grapefruit, although they are sour in taste. Oranges acidify the Ph of body fluids. In the beginning, the juice can be diluted with water and taken in small amounts. An avocado is also a suitable fruit, which contains a complete combination of useful substances needed to restore the body. One can then proceed with purees and broths of cooked vegetables such as carrot, celery, broccoli, cauliflower. The broth is drunk first, and the pureed boiled vegetables are also taken within the same day. Gradually add s alt to the food.
As fats, I recommend only the fat of avocados and green or red olives, after s alt has been added to the food. They don't have to be black olives, even though they are delicious, because dyes are used in their processing.
After that, you can move on to harder protein foods, for example, pickled cheese. When it's real, it has good bacteria in it. Intake of unpolished brown rice, millet porridge, chia seeds and other grains is also recommended.
Can you eat meat?
- I would not recommend meat as food for a cancer patient. After a person has not had a full meal for a long time, he should start taking "live", raw foods. Meat feeding should not occur earlier than the tenth day after chemotherapy. This also applies to feeding after prolonged fasting. It is important to take "live" food - grated carrots or fresh cabbage juice.
Freshly squeezed cabbage juice
is of the most useful things, even for people with ulcers.
It most quickly relieves pain and heartburn in peptic ulcers and gastritis. I am talking about the juice, not the cabbage itself, because it contains coarse cellulose, and if a person has not eaten for a long time, it would be unsuitable for nutrition. After the sixth day, fresh cabbage salad can be included. It is also good to take sauerkraut because it is a fermentation product, as long as it is not in large quantities and is not too s alty.
What should cancer patients take after chemotherapy and radiotherapy?
- It should be known that after chemotherapy and radiotherapy purely physically, people cannot eat fully because they have many damages in the oral cavity, they have nausea or vomiting, strong cramps in the abdomen, and also because they are destroyed absolutely all kinds of bacteria in their intestines.
According to my observations, confirmed by other doctors in Bulgaria, including oncologists, one of the products that certainly helps cancer patients is regulatprobio. It represents a ferment, i.e. fermentation concentrate with bioactive ingredients - enzyme fragments obtained from organic fruits, vegetables and nuts. The body uses them to synthesize its own systemic enzymes that are related to metabolic processes in the body. This leads to alkalinization of the body, because we usually take food that acidifies our internal environment. Acidification is not good for he alth because it underlies chronic inflammation and toxin retention - not giving the cell a chance to cleanse itself. Biochemical processes do not proceed normally in a cell clogged with toxins.
This ferment is special, it is related to the immune system, but it does not activate it, but regulates it. Chemotherapy itself is aimed at suppressing the immune system and cellular function in general to suppress and destroy cancer cells. Another issue is that along with this, many other normally functioning cells are destroyed or the biochemical processes in them are disturbed.
During chemotherapy using this product, the sick many
easier to tolerate its unwanted effects -
nausea, vomiting, upset, and severe damage to the mucous membrane of the mouth does not occur. After chemotherapy is over, the ferment helps patients recover because the right microorganisms help reabsorb nutrients. Any nutrients can only be extracted from food if the gut is populated with the right bacteria. Supplements with probiotic bacteria can be used for this purpose. Especially if they are highly specific bacterial serotypes that are relevant to the primary colonization of the gut. The intestines of a patient after chemotherapy must be populated with the same "good" bacteria that inhabit the intestines of newborns. These are bifidobacteria, then it is good to continue with other combinations that stimulate the function of the killer cells of the immune system. If there are atypical, altered cells left somewhere in the body, although not cancerous, the bacteria activate killer cells and thus help destroy the atypical cells.
Must take vitamins and minerals
“Naturally, cancer patients can take vitamins and minerals. This should be tailored to their specific condition. Not with the specific type of tumor, because the causes of different tumors are always the same. If the cause is not removed, many people, despite having surgery, develop a tumor elsewhere, and this is not necessarily a metastasis. The reasons for the development of tumor diseases are directly dependent on the levels of stress, which depend on various behavioral patterns in the specific person - fear, uncertainty, anger, short temper, malice, greed, insult, guilt, excessive dedication to others, overcontrol over emotions etc
There is no danger in taking vitamins and minerals, as is attributed to them by some doctors. Especially for cancer patients, it is recommended that these vitamins and minerals come from natural sources, i.e. of fruits and vegetables. Then there is no way for them to overdose. However, few nutritional supplements are of organic origin. When they are synthetic, care must be taken with the concentration. It is described on the packaging and the daily dose should not be exceeded.
The belief that when vitamins, especially B vitamins, stimulate the growth of cancer, there can be some basis only if it is a question of synthetic vitamins and taken in high dosages. This is a rather outdated notion.
If any patient still has the mindset that B vitamins will harm him, it is better not to take such supplements. If you decide that something will harm you, it will surely harm you. In general, vitamins should not be taken during chemotherapy. Then regulatprobio and a probiotic combination can be taken to reduce the nausea and upset that these patients will eventually experience, explained the specialist.
