A Non-Destructive, Non-Toxic Approach to Cancer Treatment
NORI-UK is a new cancer treatment service based in Bristol. Offering a treatment developed over several years by Mark Simon in the USA: non-toxic agents of proven efficacy are combined with a special diet.
Specialising in diseases such as prostate cancer for which there are few, if any, good options at present. Those diagnosed with cancers (such as testicular cancer or Hodgkin’s disease) for which there are effective conventional treatments are advised to follow the advice of a medical practitioner.
For more difficult cancers, perhaps with an uncertain or poor prognosis, or where known disadvantages of conventional treatments are unacceptable, NORI-UK provides therapy tailored to the individual in partnership with our US-based expert Mark Simon.
Methionine Restricted Diet
Nutrition is a powerful tool in controlling tumour growth as well as making cancer cells much more susceptible to treatment. The trick is in supporting normal healthy cells while depriving cancer cells of essential nutrients. Cancer cells are highly dependent on several different amino acids for growth and cell division. Cancer cells are universally dependent on methionine. It is both practical and effective to limit the dietary intake of methionine as a means to starve cancer cells of this essential nutrient. Normal cells are unharmed by short term limitation of methionine. Methionine restriction is very powerful and may be sufficient as a standalone therapy for many early stage cancers.
NORI does not encourage or support the use of nutritional supplements, herbs and juicing during cancer treatment. It is believed that these elements only help cancer cells grow and survive. Anti-cancer compounds are only helpful if they are adequately absorbed, are present in the bloodstream at a sufficient concentration and time interval.
Methionine restriction is individualised for each patient according to weight, nutritional status, disease progression and past dietary preferences. A methionine restricted diet may be continuous or cycled on and off depending on individual circumstances. Methionine restriction involves the elimination of many foods and a focus on mostly fruits. The natural sugars in fruits will not feed cancer cells or cause tumours to grow. It is a common misconception that fruit equals sugar and that fruits raise blood sugar. Fruit can be a problem if there is a high fat intake (greater than 10% of total caloric intake) which will cause insulin resistance.
