Just want to let you know that I'm neither a doctor nor a nutritionist, hence, I will encourage you to seek a second opinion after reading what I have to say.
Both Chemo or using alternative therapies kill cancer cells. Both methods do not kill the cancer cells 100%. Today, you and I carry carry cancer cells too. The only difference are these:
1) Chemo method is to "toxicify" the body. Hence, it will kill both Cancer and good cells of the body. Side effect is permanent damage to internal organ and relapse may happen between 2 to 5 years. Does this method work? Yes.
2) Alternative therapies such as Gerson or Breuss therapies require strict diet. Basically, organic juices with almost no protein at all. This method is to nourish the body so that it can use its self-defense to fight. People who is going through this therapy requires tremendous self-control. Let's say, if they survive and doctor declares that the tumor does not exist anymore, this person cannot go back to its previous diet. It has to follow a strict and clean diet for the rest of his or her life. And a lot of time, people is not open to this idea.
