  2. I just listened to your Health and Nutrition Conference talk online. I am a three-time breast cancer survivor. I had cancer 20 years ago – it was HR2 (stage 2). I had surgery, chemo, but no radiation. I began to work with alternative doctors doing hair analysis and taking supplements. I have tried many different diets. Seven years ago I had breast cancer again, but this time it was hormonally receptive and stage 4. I took Femara and continued to work with alternative practitioners. When I stopped the Femara, after five years, the cancer returned. Then I started on Aromasin and the cancer went into remission. However, these drugs have caused bone loss and osteoporosis. The oncologist wants me to take shots (Faslodex) which are painful shots with bad side effects. i would rather fight this nutritionally and I am working with a nutritionist. I would like to know what you would suggest as a treatment strategy. I will be ordering your book to discover more insights. I think that my diet is helpful, but I do struggle with inflammation and not sure what I am eating or doing to cause it. I would love to Skype if you have the time. I am grateful for any help you may offer.

    • Hi Donna,

      I am not a licensed practitioner and therefore cannot offer “treatments”, and unfortunately cannot offer individual advice to those who are not my clients. I encourage you to sign up for our Facebook page for lots of great information on new studies, foods, nutrients, recipes, etc. and if you would like to Skype, please contact me at hwaldman@turning-the-tables.com. I’d be delighted to help.

      So sorry for the late reply – this section of the Website is not monitored regularly but the “contact us” feature is.

      All the best,
      Helayne Waldman
