Dr. Susan Saccomanno shares guiding principles for cancer patients to help them know which diet is best for them, with an emphasis on wholistic eating that includes a variety of foods, plus an abundance of fruits and vegetables.

When managing cancer, we need every possible advantage. Cancer cells are resilient—they undergo genetic changes that provide them with protection and camouflage, and at the same time they acquire properties that enable them to overcome the body’s defense systems. They can even manipulate the immune system to aid cancer growth while suppressing what would otherwise be adversarial to the cancer. Botanical medicines and their selective compounds have the unique ability to address these issues, while concurrently strengthening the host and microenvironment.

Traditional herbal medicine recognized centuries ago that combining many plants delivers far better results than relying on a single plant. This is true both for supporting health and vitality and for treating imbalances and diseases. The multi-component nature inherent in medicinal herbs makes them particularly suitable for managing the multitude of issues that present in complex diseases such as cancer, and offers great potential for synergistic actions, including interactions between botanicals and the relationship of botanicals to conventional cytotoxic drugs such as chemotherapy and targeted agents.
