I am sorry to hear that you have colon cancer. You can access posts from others with this diagnosis by typing in colon cancer in  "search forum" on the purple strip at the top of the page. What has carrot juice got to do with cancer if you don't mind me asking? Max

Dear Max,

Thank you for replying to my email.

One who has no option depends on others advise. On internet  few people have mentioned that they had Carrot  Juice and their Cancer vanished, thus I just wanted to know if any body in the form has any information about it.

Kind Regards

I am sorry to hear that you have no treatment options available to you. If you email the moderators they will give you a link to any information they may have on alternative and natural therapy. Or you can ring the nurses on the number shown at the bottom of this page - it is free to call from the UK.

I hope you get the information and support you need x

Hi SMA,

We do have some information for you on carrot juice! Happy
The molecule found in carrots that scientists have been interested in studying is an antioxidant called beta-carotene. Some scientists have shown that at high doses beta-carotene can kill bowel cancer cells grown in the lab (for example here). But there’s no evidence that beta-carotene has any cancer fighting properties in patients. In addition, there’s evidence that the effects of antioxidants on cancer cells are complex could make some types of cancer more aggressive and interfere with certain treatments like chemotherapy and radiotherapy as you can read here. There are lots of claims about ‘miracle cures’ to be found – but there’s often no scientific evidence to back up these claims. Find out more here. If you are being treated for cancer, our recommendation is to try and keep a healthy, balanced diet – we have written about this on our blog.

If you are considering making any changes to your diet, the best person to speak to about it is your doctor or a dietician, or you are welcome to give our nurses a call - if you live in the UK you can reach them on this free number 0808 800 4040, Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm. 

I hope this helps!

Best wishes,

Dear Moderator Luci ,

   
Thank you for broad information you provided which I am trying to go through , 99% information per information has no clinical evidence , but these people ( nutrition therapists ) on You tube very boldly  said us Have93% cure rates which does seem to surprise with me .

Kind Regards

I've got stage 4 colon cancer and have completed 6 chemo treatments. I recently have stopped my chemo but have continued with drinking fresh carrot juice each day. I drink 5 glasses each day. My next CT scan will be at the end of August and that should tell me if the carrot juice is working. If you'd like I'll keep you posted.

Hi Barry - Please keep us posted on your CT scan and if the carrot juice is working. My husband is also diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer since July and we have been juicing carrot juice (4-5 cups) a day. We will have a scan in Sept to see if it might be working.

Hi Brikee

Will do. My scan was postponed until September 19/16 and I am to get my results on Sept 26/16. By that time I will have drank about a liter and 1/2 of carrot juice per day for 5 months.

I'm feeling very good and have put on about 25 lb.

Keep checking this site for my reply in another month.  Good or bad you'll hear from me

Hi Barry, That's great to hear the weight you have gained. Out of curiosity what is your diet like now? With hubby I have him eating more healthy stuff like oatmeal w blueberries flax, green smoothies, salmon etc. when I am not around he will eat stuff not so healthy. I feel like the carrot juice is working though. He isn't in pain any more and is eating more too. So thankful for this. Brikee

Hi SMA , I have read the internet regarding carrot juice, I had my kidney removed 3 months ago 5.5 cm tumour in the middle, but I am having a scan on the 2cnd of september as I have 3 nodules in my lung that they say one looks suspicious, so i am waiting.

I have read so much on the internet about carrot juice, garlic , diet changes even people using some for of cannabis oil or some derivative of canabis. 

At the moment i am eating about 6 cloves of garlic every day, making nutribullet drink of strwberries, blueberries and raspeberries every morning and taking carrot juice and ginger in the afternoons. 

Absolutly no idea if it will help , there doesnt seem to be any real evidence on the internet of people having success, most of the things you read on the internet , are old, no real news currently ie 2016, so 

will carrot juice help... I dont know, 

Also it is so hard to understtand the best diet to eat, for kidney cancer there are american sites that say avoid all dairy products, cut down protien, we know to avoid sugar cakes etc, but I cannot find any real information on what to eat as a truelly balanced diet. I emeailed my surgeon 3 weeks ago and asked and as yet no reply.

yes I have seen articles where people have taken carrot juice and their cancer has vanished, I read the same on a lady that says she cured her cancer by eating pineapple every day , plus recently the article about the gentleman that says his brain tumours have shrunk due to a high fat protein diet, this was in the newspapers this last week.. 

I think the most interetsing article recently is the one about the doctors that have found a way to make aspirin into a completly soluble form that can pass the brain blood barrier and help deliver the medicines into the brain , but again clinical trials are at least 2 years away... we live in hope and thats all we can do

Dear Alan , best of luck and Congratulation that you are fighting your illness with alterative means at so early stage, They say 2 and a 1/2 kg of Carrot Juice which you have not mentioned how much you drank ,I did drink it for about 6 months even more ,but Tumour in Lungs from Colon cancer did grow, they have changed my regimen of Chemo and I have reduced intake of Carrot juicing to just few glasses hope for best. I am also making smithy of strawberries, blueberries and raspberries every afternoon and am on Just Vegetarian diet since last 6 months. Why have not they started you on Chemotherapy ,why are they sitting on it and Watching and Waiting, question which you should ask to your Oncologist. Please if you find any favourable article do let me know. Kind Regards SMA.
