Nutrition Therapy – Fighting Cancer – Mistletoe Cancer Treatment

Nutrition Therapy

What is Nutrition Therapy?

Believe Big believes that Nutrition Therapy is important to all individuals, but vital to a patient wanting to overcome cancer. Nutrition Therapy is the “development, education, and oversight of a custom, results-driven, and sustainable diet and lifestyle program.”

We believe that individual protocols need to be created through a detailed assessment of past and current eating habits, lab work, medical history, physician recommendations, lifestyle factors, and more. It is important for a patient to understand how plant based and unprocessed foods can work medicinally to help the body heal.

Believe Big will connect you to a Clinical Nutrition Therapist who specializes in oncology to determine your protocol (including Ketogenic Diets, Plant Based, Intermittent Fasting, Treatment Support, and Detox). There is much misinformation circulating about nutrition, and things are always changing, which is why it is extremely important to have an expert in the oncology field that can present you with the most up-to-date, evidence-based information.

Please email us at support@believebig.org or call us at 888-317-5850 and we will connect you with someone that can help you. In the interim, please review the information on this page to help you get started on your path to better health.

Why is A Plant Based Diet Important?

The cells in our bodies love an alkaline environment. When your cells are in this environment they receive nourishment and release waste with ease. Our bodies were designed to operate as close to a pH of 7 as possible. When your pH is either too acidic or too alkaline, your body experiences distress. Other factors that contribute to an acidic environment include, but are not limited to, a lack of exercise, anger, and stress. Your body can regulate pH, however, there is a limit to how much it can neutralize.

What Can I Start Doing Today?

  • Restore your proper pH balance by eating more fruits and vegetables along with removing or limiting meats and dairy to less than 12 ounces per week.
  • Choose fresh, certified organic whole foods. If you are unable to buy all organic, at the minimum avoid the dirty dozen. Check out the Clean Fifteen and Dirty Dozen printable resource you can carry with you when you shop from the Environmental Working Group.
  • Eat a wide variety of plant based foods. Many Americans eat a limited variety of foods. A wider choice of foods is more interesting and helps to stimulate recovery. Your physician may advise you to rotate your foods, especially to help relieve a weakened digestive system.
  • Drink lots of pure water with fresh lemon juice. This will rapidly excrete soluble wastes rather than allowing them to accumulate in your body.
