|Less is MORE
Like so many other concepts and strategies in cancer, this comes from the world of breast cancer research. Most recently a major 'thought leader', Dr. Eric Winer, gave a talk about the idea of using less treatment in any individual. Some of you may know that there are now several tumor and/or blood-based TESTS that can tell if an individual needs or would benefit from chemotherapy. This will hopefully continue in the future.

Several doctors from India who practice Ayurvedic medicine will be attending the 2019 conference.
What is Ayurveda?
From a paper in 2002 discussing Complementary therapies worldwide: "Ayurvedic medicine, India’s traditional system of medicine, is more than 5000 years old. Ayurveda means the “science of life.” Therapies are designed to restore the inner harmony of the individual and emphasize care of the mind, body, and spirit. Ayurvedic treatments include diet, exercise, meditation, herbs, massage, and controlled breathing."
talks about the Ayurvedic view of Raisins:
"...the ancient sages and rishis of
India taught the people to weave the use of raisins and other healing foods into their everyday lives. This enabled them to eat healthy food without thinking of it as 'medicinal'."
Raisins nutrition facts
Raisins are dried grapes/currants. However, unlike fresh grapes, they indeed are rich and concentrated sources of energy, vitamins, electrolytes, and minerals. On a weight per weight comparison basis, 100 g of dried grapes hold 249 calories, several times more fiber, vitamins, minerals and polyphenol antioxidants than the fresh grapes. Raisins, however, contain fewer amounts of vitamin-C, folic acid, carotenes, lutein and xanthins than fresh grapes." SOURCE: Nutrition and You
