The following article will tell you the story of a woman called Jane Plant. Jane is a mother and wife who was diagnosed with cancer in 1987 when she was 42 years old. As soon as she heard her diagnose she was determined to do whatever it takes to fight her disease.
The first thing she did was change her lifestyle. This included a specific dietary regimen. It was this dietary regimen that really improved her health and wellness. Today, she’s sharing her personal experience with women all over the world hoping to raise awareness on alternative ways to fight breast cancer.
At the time when she was first diagnosed with cancer, her husband, an eminent scientist himself, was working in China. With the help of his colleagues, he began researching why breast cancer rates are so low among Chinese women.
At the end of his study, he came up with an effective cancer-fighting technique that he right away proposed to his wife. This method, which has actually proved exceptionally helpful, is now made public. Many people still find this method controversial, but people should be entitled to choosing their own anti-cancer treatment.
Jane received a lot of support in the form of letters and cards by her Chinese colleagues. At one point she said wondering why Chinese women rarely develop breast cancer. It was then that she did a research of her own.
She found that just 14% of the calories in the typical Chinese diet were fat rather than 36% of calories in the Western diet.
But, Jane’s diet before her cancer diagnosis was high in fiber and low in fats, which eliminated fat as a factor to her cancer onset.
After more research, she discovered that the Chinese do not consume dairy products, which took her by surprise. It then struck her that her Chinese colleges never consumed cheese or drank milk, with the reason that milk was for children. Then she also remembered that she didn’t know any Chinese woman feeding her child with cow milk or dairy products.
This only inspired her to continue with her research, which induced another stunning discovery– over 70% of the world population is lactose-intolerant! Plus, milk can set off numerous allergies. Nevertheless, the most shocking thing was that nutritionists turned a blind eye to this.
Jane’s diet was mostly based on dairy before she was diagnosed. She also consumed cheap beef. During chemo, she consumed organic yogurt to support development of beneficial gut bacteria.
At the time of her research, she found out that in 1989, yogurt was connected to ovarian cancer, after numerous women were examined by Dr. Daniel Cramer from Harvard University. The thing is Dr. Daniel monitored the diet of these women only to conclude that ovarian cancer was in some way related to dairy products.
Upon finding this, Jane right away stopped consuming dairy products including butter, milk, and yogurt. Her chemotherapy was not showing any results at the time, so her next step was to get rid of all dairy from her diet. Two weeks later, Jane saw that the lump on her breast started to itch.
It also become much softer and soon afterwards significantly reduced in size. Her test results also revealed that not did her lump shrink its size, however her tumor was also treated.
It all happened in only 6 weeks’ time. The moment neither she nor her husband could find the lump, she decided to see a specialist, who was rather sceptical about her dietary regimen. Having gone through this ordeal, Jane realized that there is some link between breast cancer and dairy products, much like the link between lung cancer and smoking cigarettes.
All in all, Jane is a living example of the effectiveness of dairy free nutrition in fighting breast cancer.
