I am recently diagnosed with chronic phase CML. I had incidentally also just been learning about the benefits of a whole foods, plant-based diet on health and disease (via Forks Over Knives and the work of T Colin Campbell, Dr Esselstyn, Dr McDougall). There seem to be many studies and stories of this diet reversing solid cancers, and I am wondering if there is evidence of it helping blood cancers as well. Does anyone have links to studies/info?
Also, I'd love to hear from anyone who utilizes this type of diet and the outcomes they've seen, related to side-effects, blood counts, etc, I am slated to start Tasigna as soon as my insurance company approves it. They want to use Gleevek but my hematologist is pushing for Tasigna instead.
Thanks in advance!
