Learning about cancer – Chap 5: Cora method


A man with diabetes with the blood glucose of 527mg/dl, which is the highest blood glucose level in the world. He has four shots of insulin and two does of medicine everyday to keep the blood glucose range of 300-500mg/dl. But after four days of following CORA method (eating boiled rice with boiled water spinach and soy sauce), his blood glucose level went down to 137mg/dl. This is the best result ever in the world. However, he couldn’t follow CORA method because he couldn’t stand boiled rice and boiled water spinach with Vietnamese soy sauce. And he decided to be back to his insulin injection and medicine as before to have yummy food.

We respect his choice. But we also admire a venerable monk who strictly and happily adopts CORA. His blood sugar level is now 110mg/dl (before, 285).

Probably one’s choice of food depends on one’s virtue. People with merit from spiritual practice can easily accept simple but healthy food to avoid diseases more than those who don’t practice spirituality. Those who still feel happy with simple diet have a gentle soul, and they can make their body environment gentle without difficulty.

The press has reported a man who claims a vegan diet cured his colorectal cancer. His name is Rob Mooberry. Rob Mooberry was given just a few weeks to live. His colorectal cancer had reached the critical stage 4 diagnoses, and he was in pain. Chemotherapy, radiation, and invasive surgeries were the doctor’s orders, but after the first round, Mooberry decided his body needed a break.

“…When I finished chemo, the oncologist were saying I would need to do more straight away and I really didn’t want to. I need 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.”

His doctors told him that his attempts to cure cancer with an overhauled, plant-based diet was “naïve”, but Mooberry was just focused on one thing: feeling better. He went vegan, took herbs, and even tried coffee enemas.

At this next scan a few months later showed something that shocked everyone: His cancer had shrunk in size by nearly 80 percent. Fast forwads almost a year from that scan, and Moobery’s scans showed almost no evidence of the disease.

In December 2017, Mooberry celebrated his five-year anniversary of being cancer-free by starting his own cancer charity – the Mu Casa Moo Foundation – and talking about his experience with beaing the disease with his diet.

“I’m not standing here on my soap box saying everyone needs to go plant-based and vegan,” he said. “but if you’re going to ask me what worked for me, I’ll tell you: the diet. Whoever is thinking about adopting these practices should research, weigh, and evaluate if this is right for them.”
