Talk about peritoneal mesothelioma and you talk about certain death. Or at least that’s how many people feel. But one man has managed to overcome peritoneal mesothelioma through making changes to his diet.

Overcoming Peritoneal Mesothelioma

Paul Kraus is the world’s longest mesothelioma sufferer. He was originally diagnosed in 1997 and has defied all expectations ever since. Before you read on, click on this link to find out more about the disease.

One of the secrets to his success is that he made major changes to his diet.

Cutting Out Grilled Foods

Most people don’t take in enough water. When you consider the fact that we are made of 60% water it’s no wonder that people tend to experience crippling health problems at some point.

As well as the lack of any health benefits, unhealthy food like French fries and anything grilled come with something called acrylamide. This substance is normally consumed either in the form of food or by smoking cigarettes.

Studies have shown that acrylamide is reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen. Kraus immediately removed grilled foods from his menu. He also eliminated anything that could be considered fast food for this reason.

Managing Water Intake

Most people don’t take in enough water. When you consider the fact that we are made of 60% water it’s no wonder that people tend to experience crippling health problems at some point.

Kraus takes extra care to take in adequate amounts of water via foods and fluids. If the body is the engine water is the engine lubricant to allow the body to efficiently remove waste products.

Not only is it about maintaining an acceptable water intake it’s about avoiding things that dehydrate the body, which is why Kraus doesn’t drink alcohol.

Inserting Herbs into the Diet

The research into how many common herbs can benefit us is still in its infancy. However, the fact is that herbs do have a lot of benefits.

Kraus regularly sees them as an easy way to place specific nutrients into his meals. There are also some anti-cancer properties in many herbs. For example, basil is filled with vitamin K, but it also comes with anti-inflammatories that can help in the fight against mesothelioma.

Consuming Cruciferous Vegetables

Another group of anti-cancer foods is cruciferous vegetables. These leafy greens, which include things like broccoli, cabbage, and kale have been proven to contain huge amounts of protective enzymes that deprive cancer cells of nutrients.

When cancer cells are deprived of the relevant nutrients they can no longer carry out their functions of cell replication and growth.

It is also true that many leafy greens, along with nuts and berries, are jammed full of antioxidants. These play an important role in supporting the body’s defenses against the continued spread of cancer.

Last Word – Simple Changes Big Results

It may seem unlikely that Kraus could make changes to his diet and lifestyle and beat cancer, but that is his story. It’s convinced many doctors that more of an emphasis must be placed on dieting. Not only for cancer prevention but for cancer treatment.

Do you believe that there are any other dietary changes that could fight against mesothelioma?
