Daughter with Slow Growing Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma at Salivary Gland
Hello, Ted. I am a mother of 3 children. My first one is diagnosed of cancer when she removed a lump behind her ear. What it looked like a cyst on MRI turned to be a malignant tumor, so they performed another surgery to remove more tissue around the cyst. It is a slow growing, low grade cancer called mucoepidermoid carcinoma at salivary gland. She went through radiation therapy for 6 and a half weeks. It has been 2 weeks since it was done.
I wished I saw the earthclinic site much earlier. Many things I did not know. I started to read a lot about many things about foods. My same daughter had lots of ear infections and my son who is 6 now started Asthma same time around the daughter's surgery. So, when I stumbled upon a book about cow's milk is not good for us, I stopped all dairy for everyone.
I make vege & fruits juice every breakfast and dinner time and manly, it is carrots, some greens like cabbages, broccoli, chinese cabbage, kale, etc with one apple and lemon. Sometimes I put pineapple or cantalope. In the morning, I put banana and blueberries. All organic. No matter how much I feel I should just make vegetable juice for my daughter, she would not drink it if it is just vegetables. So, I need to mix in some fruits. But, I read your post many times that you repeat no fruits, so I am now worried. Her cancer is now microscopic size that they cannot see anything in MRI. The biopsy reports tells that there was 2 lymph nodes metastasized nearby. Also, a neural invasion. That is the one that they say they are worried that it would go up the nerve to the brain if left, so they aggressively recommended radiation therapy. She was very healthy for doing the therapy mainly because I cut most of her sugar, in the simple form of sweets, and refined flour bread. I changed white rice to brown rice. Breads to be whole wheat 100 %. Many sources tell me thought that the carbs will all turn to sugar anyway, that better not to eat those. However, it is very very hard for my kids when I take away a lot of grains and fruits.
Other things I added is green drinks. Also, trying to balance PH. In search of PH balance, I came to the earthclinic and found lots of your remedies. I don't know which to try. I cannot try everything. But, if there are anything that kid friendly remedies, I would like to try. Now, also, to balance ph, I saw someone said to add calcium ascorbate for vitamin c and calcium. Is this bad? Sounded like calcium should not be fed to cancer patient. Any thought? I am very lost. Lots of information for me now that I need someone to tell me what to do. I don't have any regular doctors who think the cancer can be caused by bad diets.
I will wait for you reply as long as it takes. I will try to cut more sugar from our diets in the meantime in forms of bread and rice, etc. My daughter also loves virgin coconut oil now that she eats 3, 4 table spoons a day. She lost her weight, so I thought it is okay... Thank you for your assistance in advance!
