Linda Ludwig uses Macrobiotic, then Vegetarian diet

Understanding and Curing My Own Cancer

In 2005 I realized that I had both pancreatic and colon cancer – diagnosed as stage 1 and stage 2 respectively.

The lymph glands under my arms were the size of dimes and very inflamed. I had realized that something was wrong for a while as I had become lethargic and depressed. At the same time a dear friend of mine was dealing with prostate cancer.

I had watched my father and my cousin as they were treated for cancer with the mainstream traditional modalities radiation and chemo and decided that I would not take that path. They subsequently passed and I had read that there is only 10% cure rate when only traditional modalities are used for the treatment.

So I went on a research quest to find a cure for me and my friend. What I learned was that cancer is nothing to fear. As it lives on fat and sugar the easiest way to eliminate the active cancer cells from your body is to eliminate all fat and sugar from your diet.

Also, only when the ph of your blood is between 7.35 and 7.45 can your body function properly. Therefore, eating a diet rich in alkaline foods helps to restore your ph level to its optimum level. Once your ph level is restored your body has the ability to begin to heal itself.

The pioneer and authority on healing cancer through diet is Michio Kuchi, born 1926 in Japan, he helped to introduce modern macrobiotics to the United States in the early 1950s. In his book, “The Cancer Prevention Diet”, he dedicates a chapter to each type of cancer, the appropriate diet for that type of cancer, and case studies.

This approach resonated with me so I began the recommended diet which included only grains and vegetables. Within five weeks my lymph glands had returned to normal and I had more energy and felt better than I had for many years. I stayed on the strict diet for 2 months and then began adding other vegetables to my meals.

For 3 months I maintained a vegetarian diet, lost most of my body fat and looked and felt 15 years younger.

It is five years later and I feel and look great. If anyone would like to contact me about this I can be reached at
