Cancer Fighting Diet for Insulinoma
My 11 y/o female pit bull was diagnosed with Insulinoma last week. I was told she needed to be fed 6 times per day in order to keep her glucose levels stable and avoid seizures (the reason I took her in to be seen and received the diagnosis)
I am implementing the Budwig protocol (ground flaxseed, flaxseed oil and cottage cheese) to her daily schedule, however, I am conflicted about the appropriate cancer fighting diet diet.
I am planning to cook her meals and to incorporate supplements such as probiotics, digestive enzymes, Vitamin C, coconut oil, as well as others I am coming across.
I have found recipes which include 50% beans, lentils, 25% brown rice or quinoa, and 25% cancer fighting veggies such as kale, asparagus, carrots, broccoli, pumpkin, sweet potato, etc.
My question is whether meat should be included in the diet. Some websites state that feeding meat would feed the tumor and other websites state that meat is necessary in the canine diet.
I do not wish to put her on steroids or meds.
I have not seen any testimonials which state that the insulinoma was cured with the Budwig protocol with dogs, however, there are extremely positive results in humans that did not have meat in their diet.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
