Re: Do You think Nutrition & Exersize Helps?

Absolutely nutrition and exercise helps. My mother was diagnosed with stage 4 non small cell adenocarcinoma the day before Christmas, she was expected to live 4 weeks if she made it through the weekend. It metastasized to her brain, lymph nodes and her femur bone. We got her on a high fiber diet, and after hip replacement surgery she is now able to walk. The dr said exercise is very very important to keep your muscles strong, of course don't over do it. especially if you have cancer in the bones. She is doing better than anyone expected, and I attribute that to salmon once a week(for omega 3's) lots of broccoli and carrots and fruits. now her life expectancy is over a year. and possibly longer if we keep up the good work.
