Greetings, All! My oncology nutritionist sent me the pdf . It is quite similar to the SQ1 protocol, as the "five to thrive plan" is about Diet, Movement, Spirit, Rejuvenation and Dietary Supplements. Much of this I am already aware of, and probably so are most of you, but there were a few things that were new to me. For instance, Dr. Alschuler noted "as we age, the stomach produces less hydrochloric acid. This decrease makes it difficult to digest dense proteins such as meat, but it does not affect how we digest plant-based foods. One could argue that as we age, our physiology naturally lends itself towards a diet that is comprised primarily of fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds and less reliant on dense proteins such as meat and dairy." I did not know this; how interesting that the body naturally wants to do this. Anyway, just thought I'd share. The pdf doesn't talk so much about cancer but about how lifestyle has the ability to affect all chronic illnesses.
