Title : Keeping cancer in remission - A consensus from patients


During recent forty years, thyroid cancer rates had gone up constantly. Generally, the best treatment for thyroid benign or malignant nodules is surgery, but surgery is very costly. This paper was about how to manage thyroid cancer through food and medication. To understand this topic, this researcher went through more than five thousand threads/emails online long-term thyroid cancer survivors’ group. Among the survivors, this researcher picked out five typical cases that survived thyroid cancer from eight years to close to 50 years. From these five cases’ discussion, this researcher tentatively summarized the best practices in diet and medication in improving thyroid health, and consequently keeping thyroid cancer in remission.

Audience Take Away:

  • For people with limited income, what should they eat to keep a healthy thyroid?
  • When treating a cancer patient, the medical treatment is important, but other factors are also important. Is the patient having a balanced diet? Where is this patient living? Is the treatment actually increasing the chances of cancer? Are there some everyday food or practice worsening the problems? Or is the patient in an abusive relationship?
  • As a practicing physician, you should think of all the aspects of a patient’s life, chemo and radiation and hospital stay are the only small portions of the time that doctors can be in control.
