Nutrition

The plant-based diet we recommend at Quantum Clinic is whole food, low glycaemic,  high fibre and anti-inflammatory. It contains healthy fats and plant proteins, rich in phytonutrients. It aims to address the underlying metabolic impairment that occurs with cancer whilst delivering the highest quality nutrients to maximise your cellular functions of repair, regeneration and detoxification.

Plant-based diets have been shown to both prevent and improve the outcome of many conditions including cancer.

 

Numerous large studies confirm that high fat diets in cancer lead to significantly poorer outcomes in the long term.

The following meta-analysis (highest strength evidence) on nearly 10,000 patients with breast cancer showed a 23% reduced risk of recurrence in those eating a low fat diet after a diagnosis of breast cancer:

In this randomised controlled trial that followed over 48,000 women over a period of 16 years, mortality rates were reduced by almost 50% in women consuming a low fat diet:

A high dietary fat intake has been shown to increase the risk of developing several cancers including ovarian cancer in this meta-analysis of about 900,000 people:

At Quantum Clinic we recommend whole food plant based nutrition as the diet with the strongest evidence for preventing cancer and improving outcomes. This can be combined with intermittent fasting for optimum effect.
