I really can't recommend this book enough, it's one of the best books for anyone wanting to know more about cancer & anyone wanting to take control of their cancer.
I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Coloretal Cancer in late Dec-2017 & found Jane's FB page when doing my own research. Her FB page is full of great information, clinical studies, personal stories, & a great community with lots of really helpful support.
Jane has now released her much anticipated book, telling her story in great detail of how she beat cancer, using a unique blend of both Traditional & Alternative medicines, & combining a group of cheap Off-label medications, that have clinical studies showing their benefits beating cancer.
I've started taking several of the medications mentioned, 3 months ago, & I'm now showing exceptional reduction in all my tumors!!!
This book is Honest, Heartbreaking, Empowering, & packed full of very helpful & detailed info for anyone dealing with Cancer.
Jane Mclelland has provided the detail that has hereto been missing in my research. Understanding the hows and whys is the first step to making educated decisions. I recommend this book to anyone with a cancer diagnosis or anyone hoping to help a loved one in that situation.
If you or a loved one is unlucky enough to receive a cancer diagnosis and you're desperate to cut through the bullshirt, your search is over. This is it.
Keto, Paleo, Gerson, veganism, raw foods, juicing, CBD, THC, B17, IV C, black seed oil, curcumin, energy healing, chemo this and chemo that, UGH. Everyone thinks they have the silver bullet, including Oncologists who seem hellbent on keeping up the facade of knowing everything. (Spoiler: They don't.)
Then Jane McLelland arrives and changes the landscape. She's walked the cancer path herself and is here to bring some sense back to cancer treatment.
Though it's often stated cancer loves glucose, it loves quite a few other things as well. Some cancers love fat (take note, Keto-goers!) and others prefer glutamine (hello, carnivores!). Most can adapt their fuel source and some feed from all three macros with ease. All cancers have multiple pathways that a few diet tweaks do little to address. Jane takes us much, much deeper into Cancerland and shares her map with us.
Jane’s entire body of work is evidence-based with references galore. So if you're worried about this being quackery, worry not. She also advises to use the protocol alongside some mainstream treatment or at least with the guidance of an openminded clinician. She does recommend the Care Oncology Clinic in London (with a sister clinic in the US) but imho, even they’re not taking it to Jane’s level.
If you lack a science background, this isn't an easy read. A nursing degree helped but didn't take me all the way. I needed to go over the material many times before it started coming together. Don't let this put you off, though. Read a few pages, do a little googling, get a cup of tea and then dive back in. All the foundational need-to-know material is summarised in section two starting on page 301 of the paper version. So if you’re in a hurry, start there and work backward. I bought both paper and ebook versions but find the ebook invaluable for searching and cross-referencing.
In short, How To Starve Cancer is essential reading for everyone living with cancer and those who love them. It also holds crucial information for cancer clinicians who desperately need to get a clue and the courage to use it.
This book provides a road map (or as Jane MCLelland calls it a metro map) as to how to “starve cancer” and then hopefully “kill it”. Everything she talks about is researched and has a scientific basis. The whole book is a compelling read but if you are in a hurry simply go to Part Two: The Metabolic Protocol or better still simply read and then re-read the summary at the end. I have both the hardback version of the book for browsing and also the kindle version which allows me to search and research Janes’s recommendations and comments. Just buy it.
