Jerry Brunetti: Food As Medicine

When I was first diagnosed with cancer, there were not many places to turn outside of the oncologist’s office. The popular cancer sites out there didn’t give us many choices. We felt defeated and discouraged. Weren’t there any other options besides chemo and radiation? Enter Jerry Brunetti.

A few days into his internet search, my husband Kevin came across Jerry Brunetti. He was diagnosed with Stage 3 Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 1999 and told that if he didn’t do CHOP chemotherapy, he would die within 6 months. Like us, he embarked on a journey of his own, treated himself by detoxifying and boosting his immune system with “Food as Medicine” along with other “immune modulation.” He has been cancer-free for 12 years.

In this two part video Jerry explains the potential that different kinds of foods have to fight cancer and other diseases. He also addresses the importance of sustainable farming and organics. Each video is about an hour and a half long. We found it to be more informative than anything that was being offered to us elsewhere.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, no matter your decision to go conventional or holistic, I think it would be incredibly mind-opening to watch Jerry teach you how food can be medicine.

  1. I’m 60 years old, 61 this month, February, 2014. I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma 2 years ago. With no insurance I paid out of pocket for a biopsy, had financial help for a PET scan. This year we have insurance and last Thursday I had a bone marrow test, do not have results back as yet and will be having a PET scan on the 7th of February.
    I feel so blessed to have finally come across someone who has treated my type of cancer without chemo. I’m excited to learn how Jerry treated himself as I truly do need to get started. I have been doing Budwig CC/FO once a day. I also have Hashimoto’s disease which I take thyroid pill for everyday.
    Thank you so much for sharing your healing journey!

  2. I am only beginning this website, but like you , my family is battling cancer and the effects of chemo through holistic means. Because my son is seven years old ( Jan 5th ), our choice to do it any other way but the CHEMO way is not a reality for us. We fight hard to detox from chemo, and build immunity in his body. Jon has pre- b cell leukemia / standard risk . I was told if there were such a thing as “low ” risk that Jon would qualify, but there isn’t , and jon gets chemo for three years and two months of his “developing” life. So glad to meet you on the JOURNEY.. Thank you for being a voice . Here is to “MAKING IT COUNT”

    • Oh Pamela, I am so with you on your desire to heal your son without the forced treatments. I am shaking my head on what to write to you. You’re doing such a wonderful thing to help him detox from the chemo he is getting and give him the food that will help his body thrive. I am praying for you!

    • I wonder if a different Doctor would have an opinion other than this length or duration. Perhaps changing your Doctor to Dr. McDougall, who has put his patients on a nutritional protocol for cancer with excellent results, would give you way out? Hope you are all doing well, sending your family prayers!
