Colon cancer vegan

Common Questions and Answers about Colon cancer vegan


Avatar m tn Iron-Rich Foods, Iron-Related Genes and Colon Cancer (Colorectal Cancer). Iron-rich red meat - beef, pork, lamb - can increase the risk of colon/colorectal cancer. Cancerous cells are iron-overloaded (iron-rich, iron-saturated) cells. Primary tumors always develop at body sites of excessive iron deposits. Some might expect that since the vegan diet contains a form of iron that is not that well absorbed, vegans might be prone to developing iron-deficiency anemia.
Avatar f tn I don't know if i have Colon cancer eh. And i don't wish to see a doc and fool myself! i am just 15 years old, no heritate of it.
Avatar f tn My apologies for the long post, and for cross-posting, I am new here and did not know there was a specific Colon Cancer group, originally posted in the general Cancer group. My 72 year-old father was diagnosed with colon cancer about 6 months ago. It is currently 5cm diameter (from 4.5cm at time of diagnosis, both measurements by CT), located in the sigmoid region, protruding into the lumen as well as infiltrating an adjacent section of wall of the small intestine.

Avatar f tn It's not bad to take antioxidants during cancer treatment with the exception of radiation therapy. If more people went vegetarian or vegan cancer would come down A LOT (most cancers are aggrevated by meat usage), but that's not going to happen.
Avatar n tn I have to stay on this diet, because my mother's twin died from colon cancer and they removed four polyps from me two years ago and I have a small diverticula. Other than the adhesions growing back and the severe pain from them, I am finally starting to feel almost normal. I am back on acid blockers, even after nissan fundoplication. Having gastroscope done when I return home. Is this a normal stool on a high fiber diet?
Avatar f tn I did have a small time frame off and on where I was normal, having normal bowel movements and could eat whatever. What do I do? I am a vegan, I don't eat grains, even though I am not allergic to wheat/gluten nor have celiac, I eat raw food, exercise, drink water. I do what is right and healthy, but I don't go overboard on the health thing. (Please don't encourage me to eat meat/dairy, cheese, it is detrimental to me).
Avatar f tn at first I pooped hard small pellets liked and I was worried about my stools so I tried to use something to checked on my stools whether there were blood in it, so when I did that the toilet bowl water changes to dark red or something, I suspect there is blood hidden inside my stools, I checked for symptoms like this it jus mention CANCER. I am only 16 with no records of bowel/anal/colon cancer! I am a vegan as well, I really had this changing type of bm!
541657 tn?1239212530 Hi all, Some of you may know that I am interested in alternative and immune system supportive therapies for ovarian cancer. Yesterday I had a very interesting conversation with a doctor from the Oasis of Hope clinic in Mexico. They use extensive immune support therapies along with chemo to treat ovarian cancer. Some of these include vitamin C therapy, oxygen therapy, possibly hydrogen peroxide therapy along with a vegan diet, psychological support, etc to heal the 'whole' patient.
13459739 tn?1430327101 My career is built around a healthy lifestyle as disease prevention (specifically cancer) and nutritional healing (mostly cancer/ also food allergies and lifestyle diseases). From bout the first week in December 2014-mid March 2015, I went through a very abnormally stressful time. I recently had a copper IUD taken out in Oct 2014 because of constant pain in my abdomen. When my gyn removed the IUD she did an ultrasound and everything seemed to be just fine. I felt great afterwards...
Avatar f tn I am a 19 year old girl with a family history of cancer. I do not drink, smoke, or do drugs. The only pills that I take are the occasional Tylenol and a multivitamin everyday. I take the multivitamin because I wasn't eating enough milk or meat (I'm trying to go vegan) so I became a bit malnutritioned. For the past two weeks or so I have been feeling light headed, weak, very forgetful, and tired.
Avatar m tn If anything, they masked the underlying problem by prompting superficial stimulation. My colon muscles weren’t getting stronger, and all of the painful and annoying symptoms would continue. I would be able to eliminate, but never solidly or with any consistency in texture or timing. I remember enduring colonoscopies without anesthetic and having polyps removed when I was 20. The symptoms would lessen temporarily, but I would never heal. It took a while to realize that doctors (M.D.
1704915 tn?1357604854 ) Sigmoidoscopy Result = hemmrhoids internal due to straining, some irritation and redness but biopsies say no cancer 2.) Upper scope = some irritation and redness but biopsies say no cancer 3.) Mannometry = lower esophagus is weak causing the trapped air and pains (taking Aciphex and Gas X for this, avoiding gas causing/acid causing foods) 4.) Empty Stomach Study = stomach is emptying in a normal range 5.) Physical Therapy for pelvic floor dysfunction = not the cause of constipation.
Avatar f tn Hello, Apologies for the long story. Four years ago I went vegan. I was also going through a break-up, had gone off the pill and was living in the city in a damp, dusty and rundown apartment. Living there always made me sick with chest infections. Consequently, my hair started falling out and my immune system was poor. I saw a trichologist for hair loss and they prescribed me a series of vitamins. After a couple of months, I got better and balanced out my vegan diet.
Avatar n tn My mother was diagnosed with colon cancer at 50, so I also saw the need to eliminate that possibility. I had that done yesterday and everything was fine. My gastroenterologist said it pretty much has to be IBS. So here I am today, researching IBS and learning what I can about it. I am willing to do pretty much anything, easy and hard, to get this manageable. I know I may never be 'healed' but if I can get back to living and working like I used to, I will be so happy. I have lost 25+ pounds.
Avatar f tn My Dr said it is from all the stress I have been on however; I also think it's the meds, too. My older brother died of colon cancer several years ago and because these meds interfere with my bowel movements I am really getting scared so I am ready to tackle this. I have a colon appointment in several weeks so I only have 2 weeks to stay at the rehab. I had a colon treatment when I was on meds and the Dr said my colon was still dirty after drinking all of that stuff they give you.
865902 tn?1239312521 ” When it is, your liver and kidneys are designed to handle those “toxins” and will do so far better than anything someone tries to sell you. 2. Diets only work when they restrict calories. 3. Your colon is fine and does not deserve to be regularly “cleansed.” Colonics have been around since the early 1900’s (maybe earlier) and the fact that they are still being used is only evidence of the gullibility of humans. 4. Never trust something that claims to “strengthen the immune system.
Avatar n tn I would also consider diverticulitis, colon polyps or cancer, inflammatory bowel disease or other forms of colitis. Imaging studies like a CT scan would be helpful in ruling out many of the major diagnoses. If negative, I would also consider a colonoscopy. Regarding the nausea, the endoscopy can rule out most of the upper GI diseases. Further evaluation can be done with an ultrasound to evaluate the liver and gallbladder, as well as a 24-hr pH study to definitively rule out GERD.
Avatar m tn I am a 20 year old male, athletic build with sinusitis being only past medical history. There is a lot of cancer on my father’s side of the family but none on my mothers. During the summer, I started to develop stabbing abdominal cramps followed by mustard-yellow colored explosive diarrhea. The diarrhea was abnormally foul smelling, it floated, and seemed really acidic. When I wiped, the toilet paper would look almost neon yellow.
Avatar n tn Also, people who have a lot of gas have gotten relief by going on vegan diets. That means no meat and no dairy. Just lots of whole, natural foods. I was on such a diet for years and I never had gas. Also, some people get gas because their intestinal flora is out of balance. You see, you have about 5 pounds of good, probiotic bacteria in your gut. And about 1 or 2 pounds of bad. However, sometimes the balance is off and you get too much bad bacteria and not enough good.
Avatar n tn I recently had a colonoscopy to see about reversing what was supposed to be the temporary ileostomy and my intestines were so narrow they couldn't scope me and in the process the air that they tried to put in to see when they tried to scope me caused my colon to perforate and all the air was trapped in my upper body, putting a ridiculous amount of pressure on my lungs and chest so I couldn't breathe. I was hospitalized for a week and took about 5 weeks to recover from that.
Avatar n tn I want to give background, this will be lengthy. Our mother is 68, has had a heart attack, several silent ones, colon cancer (which has been removed), congestive heart failure, and gall bladder removed. At one time, we think around 92-93, she had jaundice. She had lost a lot of weight at one point, but don't remember if they ever told us why. Her platelets had been down to 45,000 to 50,000 around June 1998. Because of all her problmes, her liver panel has been elevated for about 4 years.
Avatar n tn What they are basically telling you is that the mass will be tested during your surgery to determine if there is cancer. If not, then the surgery proceeds in a normal fashion. However, if cancer is detected, then the surgery becomes the more tedious and cautious debulking procedure in which the surgeons try to locate and remove as much of the cancer as possible.
621217 tn?1289012687 Ironicly my therapist was diagnosed with colon cancer and went threw kemo over the summer. I felt guilty going back to him and talking about my problems while he was so sick and probably thinks mine are all in my head. ...I just can't stand to live this way anymore, and I don't know what to do...I don't want to die, but I don't want to live like this anymore. Please if any one can help, at least a little????
8095314 tn?1396521762 I was misdiagnosed for 14 yrs and finally operated on in 2007 for deep infiltrating endometriosis, rectovaginal cyst, rare mensenteric cyst in the sigmoid colon, bladder resection and a presacral neurectomy. I had one of the top surgeons operate on me and that is key!! Excision surgery done by an Endo specialist is vital for any type of pain relief. There are only a handful of these specialist around the world for 179 million women affected by this disease.
935242 tn?1244759045 most of the time I look 6 months pregnant and my boyfriend has just gotten used to it. =( I am athletic, I work out and eat very healthy (mainly vegan) and usually weight about 130-134 but now I weigh myself and its more like 146-149 =( I also have some lower back pain (always have) and hip pain and serious fatigue and some nausea at random times. I am not on birth control but have been on tons of different **** in my past.
Avatar n tn I'm vegan too and I have this stanky problem. I think it's the production of prostalgndins that's the culprit. The nerves in that region of the body are pretty mashed up as well. But there's nothing wrong with cutting back on processed foods. I'm stoked to try out activated charcoal!!!!
Avatar m tn I also feel that the elevated anti histone has something to do with it and possibly the slightly elevated liver enzymes’. I think there is an extremely low chance of colon cancer because of the blood in the stool and the elevated liver enzymes but this would be a long shot. I may request a colonoscopy as I have yet to have one done. I am very desperate and feel like the only thing I haven’t tried is a spinal tap to check for some form of virus or something.
280891 tn?1261016650 why don't we hear more about it on the eveing news? why do we not know that the higher the animal products consumption the higher the cancer rate ( of all cancers)..why do we still continue to hear on the news that cancer has gotten better in certain areas of the body when only they are manipulating the statistics to "look" as if it has...why is the American Cancer Society telling people the wrong information and getting away with it STILL!
Avatar n tn I am trying to ruleout GI causes while waiting to hear about an Ultrasound date to rule out my biggest fear,ovarian cancer.2 weeks and have no date but expect it to be 8-20 weeks do to shortages of technitions.
