"The body wants to heal itself--give it what it needs," he said as we spoke about different foods that can nourish and heal. Although alternative approaches to addressing cancer can seem thoroughly modern, Rob points out that "All this alternative stuff is thousands of years old. Why discount this for something that has been on the market for 3 years?" His own diet is macrobiotic with very little meat. He doesn't completely eliminate meat--but he does minimize meat and eats 4-5 eggs a month. If you do eat meat, he recommends that you try to find meat that is not mass produced like lamb and game.
Rob is careful not to dismiss mainstream treatment as an option but he also notes that the body will be forced to do extra cellular work to accommodate chemicals and medicines and a diet high in minerals and micronutrients is the way to give your cells the boost they need. Early in his diagnosis, Rob also discovered Deepak Chopra's Journey to the Boundless, a video that explores the connection between your mind, body and spirit. "It is an ancient perspective that rings true today," Rob says of Chopra's video which has been a tremendous aid with many practices that he believes helped his recovery. He has learned that "healing involves not just diet but also addressing emotional injuries and suffering.”
Here are some of the important foods he likes to include in his diet.
