A man claims he ‘cured’ himself of cancer by switching to a vegan diet.
Rob Mooberry, 43, was diagnosed with stage 4 colorectal cancer in 2012 after he was rushed to hospital with a perforated colon.
After undergoing surgery, chemo and radiotherapy, his cancer diagnosis was downgraded to stage 3A.
Before resuming treatment, Mooberry, from Las Vegas, tried a raw vegan diet.
Mooberry claims medics had warned he would need two rounds of chemotherapy and radiation therapy and there was the possibility that he would need a colostomy bag fitted.
In November 2012, he started a plant-based diet along with his wife Amanda, now 39, who was previously a vegetarian.
Mooberry says, that when it was time for his next scan in early 2013, his cancer had shrunk by almost 80% in size.
He is now celebrating being cancer free for five years raising his 20-month-old twins and runs a small cancer charity when he’s not busy working at his bar job.
He said: ‘I’m not standing here on my soap box saying everyone needs to go plant-based and vegan. But if you’re going to ask me what worked for me, I’ll tell you: the diet.’
It’s also worth noting here – again – that Rob underwent surgery, chemo and radiotherapy, which is what doctors suggested following his diagnosis.
After a year of symptoms like bloating, blood in his bowel movements he presumed he could have IBS or something similar.
But in 2012 he was rushed to hospital in agony and medics found cancer which they suspect had been growing for around two years.
Rob says he had no family history of cancer so the diagnosis came as a devastating shock.
He added: ‘when I finished chemo, the oncologists were saying I would need to do more straight away and I really didn’t want to.
‘I needed to heal. That’s when I knew I needed to do anything to beat this cancer. I was really willing to try anything to save my life. That’s when I went hard-core raw, vegan, superfoods.’
Mooberry told the Daily Mail that he doesn’t want people to take his experience as an endorsement for veganism, although he hopes it makes them consider the healthiness of his lifestyle.
