Are you aware of a good paleo-doctor or paleo-oncologist in Europe?

This is about a dear friend of mine living in Belgium, recently diagnosed with cancer.

have been mentioning to him for a while ketogenic diets and high-dose supplementation (D3, K2, Selenium, Mg, curcumin, CoQ10 etc). He eschews conventional treatment (chemo, operation) as the situation is not life-threatening (rare form of skin cancer attacking the eye) but it could blind him in an unpredictable timeframe.

I believe he'd give it a go given the proper medical support. So... is anybody aware of a good paleo-doctor reference in Belgium or neighboring countries? Someone who could consider it and work with him from the perspective of, say, the Quilt?

Thanks for any and all references.

So your first response to fight cancer would be to take some oil (?!) instead of going to a doctor to get it properly treated? Suspected astroturfing reported.

I agree with the recommendation to seek conventional treatment.

The University Hospital in Wuerzburg/Germany has been pioneering high-fat low-carb approaches to cancer (<40g a day). http://www.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1662484,00.html and http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3157418/

They used to have links posted in German and English with advice on how and what to eat, but those links seem to be no longer there.

I would strongly urge your friend to seek "conventional" treatment in addition to following a healthy diet, optimizing his vitamin d status, etc. Cancer is most curable when treated early; the worst possible advice one could give your friend would be to try to treat it via alternative medicine and then to turn to conventional methods if the former don't "work out."

Gert Schuitemaker at Ortho is a good orthomolecular physician. I don't know to what degree he is also paleo, but it might be worthwhile to find him and ask for advice. he is on twitter, @gschuitemaker

Hope this helps!

The internet is so full of alternative "cancer cures". I found myself thinking one day: if I had cancer, what cure or cures would I try? My answer was that the first place I would look would be here.

I once found a link for this oil in the Netherlands.

Just my 2 cents. Many people will think this is kind of a crazy suggstion, but i would definitely give it a try rather than choose the cut, poison, burn routine.
