Starve your cancer!
Dr. Chi Van Dang, Director of the Abramson Cancer Center in Pennsylvania noted that cancer cells have a voracious appetite to feed their rapid replication. He explains that the more aggressive they are, the hungrier they are. Cancer cells are “addicted to nutrients” and when they cannot consume enough, they just ”wither and die.”
Jane McLelland Grad Dip Phys is a qualified medical physiotherapist who has spent the last 17 years watching this research unfold, waiting for science to back up her theories and the methods she used to overcome stage 4 cervical cancer. She theorised that blocking simple sugars (glucose), key amino acids (nucleosides) and cholesterol would starve cancer alongside an individualised diet and reducing inflammation (COX2). To do this she used a novel combination of off label drugs, namely metformin, dipyridamole and lovastatin and etodolac. Other methods of starving cancer came from supplements which can also block the mTOR pathway a key driver in most cancers and also specific exercise.
Starving the cancer she sees as fundamental to overcoming the disease and believes this should underpin other methods of treatment such as immune therapies, blocking growth factors and oxygenation therapies.
However there is resistance to this multi drug and diet approach, not least because the drugs are cheap and off patent so offer no lucrative kick back to the pharmaceutical companies. Funding trials on these drugs becomes almost impossible. Also because doctors favour using one drug at a time for research rather than combinations, progress is painfully slow. The current system is badly flawed and failing the cancer patient. The cheap drug combinations I have discovered may work on many cancers and have the potential to save billions or even trillions every year for health care systems all over the world, not to mention lives and misery. And because the drugs work on the metabolism of cancer, this is common to every type, rather than the more specific DNA mutations, in theory they should work on every type and every stage of the disease to a greater or lesser extent.
Jane’s story of her journey through cancer and amazing discoveries using off label drugs and her use of a cancer starving diet, exercise, and specific supplements will be published in the near future.

The idea that we can starve cancer has been explored for decades by the complementary medical profession but has been criticised and ridiculed by the mainstream. Attitudes are slowly changing and scientists are now accepting that ignoring the cancer’s metabolism recognised back in the 1920’s by Nobel Prize winner Otto Warburg has been a costly mistake. For decades the focus has been on the genome which is a downstream alteration caused by altered metabolism. Clinically nothing is likely to change for a further decade or two as the medical profession as a whole are slow to change and extremely conservative. There is currently a big ‘pause’ while we wait for Big Pharma to come out with nice expensive patented metabolic drugs. Meanwhile there are lots of off patent drugs showing enormous potential, some of which Jane used to cure her disease. Jane discusses them regularly on her closed Facebook group (Click here).
Most oncologists still regard the ketogenic diet, currently the ‘on trend’ diet as too restrictive and too hard for most patients to follow, particularly if the patient has had a poor diet before cancer. While it is getting some noteable success in brain cancer, its value for other cancers is still undetermined as if used on its own it fails to address other cancers that use a fuel other than glucose. Some use glutamine (from amino acids), and there is a possibility that some slower cancers may even use fat for fuel (prostate, breast) but research is as yet patchy on this. Other methods for starving cancer such as intermittent fasting also show great promise. But as a longterm strategy they have their limitations.
Starving Cancer is not a complete answer in itself, but one that I believe should underpin all the other treatments that you have to go through. and should always be used in combination with other methods to tackle growth factors, boost the immune system and oxygenate. It should be a holistic programme and one that always needs individual professional advice from a qualified medical practitioner.
If you need to discuss your cancer and have a one to one consultation with me I would be happy to help and steer you towards other professionals who can help you with diet, supplements.
