This is a brief summary. I will do an element by element breakdown in chart form when I have more time.
Dr. Lorraine Day-- Eat organic vegan, no processed food, as much raw as possible, no dairy, no eggs, no sugar, low grains. Do fresh juicing. Stay away from medicines, chemo and radiation. No end point to this diet. She does not recommend supplements. She had stage 4 breast cancer and beat it. She also includes other practices like exercise, prayer, cleaning out the toxins from your environment and other disciplines.
Dr. Max Gerson– Eat vegetarian, no salt, low sugar, low fat, low grains. Both raw and cooked. Includes frequent fresh juicing, vegetable stews, supplements and coffee enemas. Stay away from foods that are common allergens, like berries and wheat. No eggs or dairy. Very regimented and difficult diet. It is recommended for a limited amount of time –3 years or so then is less rigid. It also recommends other life style changes like detoxifying your cleaning cabinet and make up.
Hulda Clark’s program–This is a very complicated way to address parasites through eating, supplements, teas, and zapping (which I will not even attempt to explain). She feels that parasites are a large component in causation of cancer.
Asparagus diet– Eat asparagus daily to de-acidify your body.
Lemon diet–Eat lemons as they are anticarcinogens.
Jalapeno diet– Eat jalopenos every day as the populations that do this have lower rates of cancer.
Block Diet–by Dr. Keith Block– Eat vegetarian for the most part, low fat, high in raw content, low in sugar, low in processed foods. Use supplements. Exercise. Create an environment that is conducive to healing and not to cancer.
Clean diet by Dr. Alejandro Junger– Do periodic 3 week long cleanses. ( once or twice a year, or more if desired). These include foods that alkalize the body for the most part, in raw, juiced and smoothie forms except one meal a day. This meal is to be in the middle of the day. He advises the elimination diet which is a very restricted list of foods that you can have which are for the most part alkalizing. He eliminates grains, common allergens, most meats and most fat. The idea is to make the food easy to digest as well as alkalizing so that your body can focus on detoxing. The really crux of his diet is giving your body a long period of rest every day without having to digest so that toxins can be ejected. There is no eating from dinner to breakfast. He has extensive recommendations on other ways to detox your life including meditation, exercise, and right thinking.
GAPS plan– Gut and Psychology Syndrome plan developed by Dr Natasha Campbell McBride. This is the diet that I am currently on with some modifications. It is my understanding that this diet is to correct the balance of good and bad flora in the gut and thereby achieve health in the other organs also. It involves eating cooked veggies and broth made from boiling bones for many hours. It also involves supplementation including probiotics in food and supplement form. The idea is to let the inflammation in your gut heal by providing healing nutrients while also eating food which is easy to digest. It is also a no sugar, processed food, dairy, grains, potatoes, or simple carbs diet. http://www.gapsdiet.com/GAPS_Outline.html
