Food is medicine!

I agree that it is important to change the diet and the attitude, and try and get out and walk or exercise every day. I have been using Boswellia Serata (450mg every 6 hours) to reduce the swelling from my GBM grade IV (diagnosed 08.2010). Good food reference books are David Servan-Schreiber's "...

Boswellia seems to work well

I have now reduced my use of Medrol from 24mg per day to 2mg per day, and I expect to reduce to 0 next week. I have reduced the Medrol about 25-50% every 2-3 weeks, and reduced the medrol dose size so that it was spread over the day as much as possible. I am still taking the boswellia 450mg every 6 ...

Mine is not operable - so I guess there is not much point in reading that now... I will focus on diet and other meds.

Diet

Hi- I suggest you also read David Servan Scheiber's book - 'Anti Cancer a new way of life' and Richard Beliveau's book 'Foods to Fight Cancer'. Richards book is a little more practical , but David's book gives the epidemiological basis for the suggestions.
Good Luck! - Bob
