@David09 - I doubt you’d get much encouragement from your doctor for the dietary approach, but I do think you may be onto something.
Unfortunately the medical profession is trained only in the use of laboratory tested drugs. My dad suffered a stroke as a result of blood clotting and they put him on the usual cocktail of blood thinning and statin drugs.
I certainly can’t say the stuff doesn’t work, but it seems that he has to take an awful lot of it. Of course, he hasn’t really changed his diet either, which I believe is part of the problem.
But you’re right; the body has its own built in mechanism to fight the disease, and if we could just let the body do its thing, I believe it would heal itself.
