Q: My husband is 64 and was just diagnosed with multiple myeloma. I would like to know what herbs, tea and even certain foods he can eat to help him with this condition? Also, what foods should he stop eating? He likes wine, and candy. We don’t eat much red meat but do eat chicken and fish once in a while. I’m trying to give him some fresh fruits and vegetables.
A: Were your husband to receive treatment from a trained Ayurvedic practitioner, he would likely be prescribed a highly potent herbal regimen to address this disease at the deepest levels of his bodily tissues. He would also likely be prescribed certain therapies like enemas to help alleviate the buildup of toxicity in the body. To learn more about Ayurvedic practitioners, you can go to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

What is most significant about your question, though, is that you seem to already have a grasp of the information that’s important in helping his body to heal itself naturally. In feeding him fresh fruits and vegetables, you already know how he will stand to benefit from avoiding their processed counterparts. By listing his affinity for candy and wine, you know that these substances have a toxic effect. Shift him away from consuming any sort of animal protein at all, including chicken and fish, for these foods have low water content and are difficult to digest; this taxes the body’s resources and makes it harder to keep the disease at bay. Also, have him favor cooked foods over raw foods, reduce the size and number of his meals, and have him refrain from eating the last four or five hours before he goes to bed.
