Lymphoma Remission and Fasting

Two published case studies document the remission of stage IIIa, grade 1 Follicular Lymphoma in a 42-year-old female. The patient, diagnosed in 2014, was initially treated with a medically supervised water-only fast for 21 days duration followed by a diet of minimally processed plant foods free of added salt, oil and sugar. The first case study, published in 2015, documents the remission of the disease through six and nine-month intervals. The second case study, published in 2018, documents the patient's experience over the subsequent three years and illustrates continued remission of the lymphoma with CT/PET scan images. The two reports collectively provide substantial rationale for continued research on the efficacy of water-only fasting and a health-promoting diet for the treatment and maintenance of low-grade Follicular Lymphoma.
