Michael Gearin-Tosh discovered that he had bone marrow cancer when he was 54. This is the story of his quest to manage and overcome his illness and his determination not to be coerced by specialists, the NHS and even colleagues into joining programmes of invasive treatments. The author selected a number of regimes and devised his own rigorous daily round of juices, vegetables and coffee enemas. Six years on, his extraordinary survival would be classified as a "scientific miracle". But this is not a "how-to" book, rather an account of one man's quest to listen to his own inner voice of intuition in a world so heavily reliant on the certainty that it is the doctors that know best.

This is a careful chronicle of an illness, with literary references liberally sprinkled throughout, part of the flavor of the don's world. Excellent example of a person taking responsibility for, and an active role in, his own healing.
Since I didn't feel well and I hadn't improved, I switched to the Gonzalez protocol (the author contacted Gonzalez but didn't go see him) and Dr. Gonzalez told me to eat red meat 4-5 times per week plus eggs and dairy; all organic, of course. He prescribes a different diet for everyone based on genetics; some patients are on plant based, raw diets and some eat red meat three times a day. I happen to be in the middle so I eat a variety of plant and animal foods. Once I moved from a plant based diet to a diet that includes a lot of red meat and other animal products, my cancer began melting away. You can read about it at [...]. Please feel free to contact me via my blog with questions.
The point here is that a plant based diet works for some but certainly not for everyone. Red meat does not feed cancer. Cancer is like cockroaches; it'll thrive on anything you feed it. There are studies that show that sugar, fruit, meat and even Vitamin C feed cancer. It's a matter of what you choose to believe. Anyone with a blood disease such as leukemia, myeloma and lymphoma needs red meat, sometimes in very large quantities. If a plant based diet makes you feel great, then that's what you should consume. But it doesn't work for everyone and it didn't work for me. Actually, it didn't even work all that well for the author. It's true that he outlived the expectations of the conventional doctors by several years. He eventually died of an unrelated cause but he wasn't a well man when he passed. Knowing what I know now, I think he could have lived a lot longer on the Gonzalez protocol. So sad.
