PJ is a long standing, vibrant client of mine who has done extremely well over the past 15 years since her diagnosis. She has reconnected with me with a new history of gastric ulcer and wants to review her diet and dietary supplements for any necessary changes.
Since the number of studies on diet and melanoma have increased substantially (see graph), I did a complete review of her nutritional needs based on the latest science.
In addition to an extensive review of the foods that we now know are linked to melanoma (and there were some surprises here), the supplement changes I recommended:
Delete multivitamin, turmeric and red yeast rice. Continue Whole Food Nutrition Capsules
as foundational nutrition and to ensure adequate plant chemical intake.
Change Calcium/magnesium supplements to better reflect more appropriate dosage.
For osteoporosis, consider wearing a weighted vest for bone building.
Add probiotic with specific strains relating to melanoma.
Add Whole Food B-Complex.
Add Melatonin, 10 mg/day.
Try cabbage whole food powder. Add to smoothies or take with a bit of juice.
For osteoarthritis, 1 scoop daily of collagen powder. Preliminary evidence indicates that type 2 collagen appears to provide symptomatic relief in many types of arthritis, including: osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. It has strongest scientific support for usage in the treatment of osteoarthritis.
In place of dietary fish recommendation, add algae-based omega-3 fatty acids, 2 caps per day OR double Omega Blend.
