Well done Vicky.I have followed a similar diet since being diagnosed with bi-lateral breast cancer nearly 5 years ago. I refused to have chemo ,opting to cut out dairy ,meat ,bad fats and processed food instead.I have been taking Arimidex.I have also kept myself fairly fit and lost weight by regular exercise.
I have just been signed off from the hospital and told that the cancer is highly unlikely to return.
I am sure that an appropriate diet is vital in fighting breast cancer,even though Doctors will not agree .

I urge people to be cautious and to not reject proven treatments in favor of unproven ones.

It's not that doctors "disagree." It's that they are scientists and want to see the evidence. Since it's being researched it is clear that some think there may be something to this.

BUT WE DON'T KNOW YET.

Don't play Russian roulette with your life. Use alternatives in addition to, not instead of, treatments that are demonstrated to help. And make sure that your alternative is appropriate. Some may actually tend to encourage reoccurrence.
