Treating Cancer Through Regulation Of Blood Glucose Level.

Of the millions of cancer patients being treated in the world today, almost none are offered any scientifically guided nutrition therapy other than being told to "just eat good foods." Many cancer patients would have a major improvement in their conditions if they controlled the supply of cancer's preferred fuel: GLUCOSE. By slowing the cancer's growth, patients make it possible for their immune systems to catch up to the disease. Controlling one's blood-glucose levels through diet, exercise, supplements, meditation and prescription drugs (if necessary) can be one of the most crucial components to an effective cancer treatment program. The saying that "sugar feeds cancer" is over simplified. The explanation is a little more complex.

German Otto Warburg, Ph.D., the 1931 Nobel laureate in medicine, first discovered that glucose is used by cancer cells as a fuel.

The large amount of lactic acid produced by this fermentation of glucose from the cancer cells is then transported to the liver. This conversion of glucose to lactate creates a lower, more acidic PH in cancerous tissues as well as overall physical fatigue from lactic acid build-up. 
Hence, cancer therapies should attempt to regulate blood-glucose levels through diet, vitamins and supplements, exercise, medication and if necessary, gradual weight loss and the reduction of stress. Since cancer cells derive most of their energy from anaerobic glycolysis, the goal is not to eliminate sugars or carbohydrates entirely from the diet but rather to control blood-glucose within a narrow range to help starve the cancer cells and boost immune function.
