Highlights

No two cancers are the same and neither should your nutrition be. When diagnosed with cancer or at risk of cancer – one immediate question is “What Should I Eat Differently Starting Now?” and “Which Supplements Should I Take and Avoid”. The answer is “It Depends”. It depends on which genetic mutations your tests identified. It depends on which cancer, which ongoing treatments and supplements. It depends on your age, weight, height, lifestyle, allergies and habits. The answer to “What Should I Eat Differently” and “Which Supplements Should I Take and Avoid” for ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma also requires understanding of how the food and supplements included in your diet manipulate the molecular pathways which are relevant for cancer and interactions with your treatment.

Internet search to find answers will never be personalized to your cancer type such as ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma and lifestyle conditions. Cancers are driven by biochemical pathways and therefore the answers to nutrition questions have to be based on molecular science irrespective of whether one understands it or not.  

For example foods like Tomato and Bamboo are recommended when undergoing Anastrozole treatment for ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma. Similarly Birch supplements are recommended with Anastrozole treatment for ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma. So always personalize your nutrition to your cancer gene mutations and other factors.



What is ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma?

ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma is one of the different subtypes of Endometrial Carcinoma. In this subtype, the Endometrial Carcinoma patients have estrogen receptors (ER). The defects or aberrations or mutations in this gene can either drive cancer (tumor promoters) or remove brakes on cancer progression (tumor suppressors). Estrogen receptor expression is prevalent in the cancer- Endometrial Carcinoma.You can visit NIH for information on the prevalence of genetic mutations across cancers. (Reference: Steven N Hart et al, Hum Mutat,. 2020)

Diet for ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma

Why Are Some Foods Recommended in the Diet for ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma?

Foods and Supplements contain different active ingredients which manipulate different molecular pathways relevant to cancers such as ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma. Genetic mutations and cancer conditions cause specific molecular pathways to become disrupted. Hence, those foods and supplements are recommended which do not disrupt those molecular pathways further and instead reverse the disruption. For ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma, cancer pathways or processes like NFKB Signaling, Cell Cycle, MYC Signaling, Hypoxia, Vitamin D Signaling, Angiogenesis, Replication Stress, RAS-RAF Signaling, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling, DCC Attractive Signaling, TGFB Signaling, Microtubule Dynamics, MAPK Signaling, Small Molecule Transport, Growth Factor Signaling, P53 Signaling, Oncogenic Cancer Epigenetics, RUNX Signaling, Cell Cycle Checkpoints, Cancer Epigenetics, Amino Acid Metabolism, Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition, JAK-STAT Signaling and Hedgehog Signaling get disrupted. Choose those foods and supplements which contain active ingredients which cancel the molecular pathways disruption. Those supplements which interact with the treatments and disrupt the cancer molecular pathways further should be avoided.

The nutrition for cancer such as ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma depends on the type of cancer, treatments and supplements being taken (if any), age, gender, BMI, lifestyle and any genetic information available. 

Example Foods to Eat with Anastrozole treatment for ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma

Foods and Supplements to take and avoid for ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma

Recommended Foods

Tomato: Tomato contains active ingredients like Glucaric Acid, Citric Acid and Lupeol. For ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma, along with other pathways, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling is also disrupted and drives the cancer. Glucaric Acid manipulates the molecular pathways like PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling so as to cancel the disruption. Hence, foods like Tomato are recommended along with treatment Anastrozole for ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma.

Bamboo: Bamboo contains active ingredients like Beta-sitosterol, Citric Acid and Linoleic Acid. For ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma, along with other pathways, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling is also disrupted and drives the cancer. Beta-sitosterol manipulates the molecular pathways like PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling so as to cancel the disruption. Hence, foods like Bamboo are recommended along with treatment Anastrozole for ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma.

Reduce Intake of These Foods

Yardlong Bean:  Yardlong Bean contains active ingredients like Folic Acid, Linoleic Acid and Oleic Acid. For ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma, along with other pathways, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling is also disrupted and drives the cancer. Folic Acid manipulates the molecular pathways like PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling so as to disrupt them further. Hence avoid or reduce the intake of foods like Yardlong Bean when undergoing Anastrozole treatment for ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma.

Jicama:  Jicama contains active ingredients like Retinol, Vitamin C and Folic Acid. For ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma, along with other pathways, TGFB Signaling is also disrupted and drives the cancer. Retinol manipulates the molecular pathways like TGFB Signaling so as to disrupt them further. Hence avoid or reduce the intake of foods like Jicama when undergoing Anastrozole treatment for ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma.

Foods to Eat After Cancer Diagnosis!

No two cancers are the same. Go beyond the common nutrition guidelines for everyone and make personalized decisions about food and supplements with confidence.

Which Supplements To Avoid with Anastrozole treatment for ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma?

Unlike foods, supplements are high concentrations of active ingredients and hence important to understand the interactions with Anastrozole treatment for ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma.

Silymarin: Silymarin contains active ingredients Silibinin. For ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma, along with other pathways, Cell Cycle Checkpoints and P53 Signaling are also disrupted and drive the cancer. Silibinin manipulates the molecular pathways like Cell Cycle Checkpoints and P53 Signaling so as to disrupt them further. Hence avoid Silymarin supplements when undergoing Anastrozole treatment for ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma.

Caffeine: For ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma, along with other pathways, Cell Cycle Checkpoints and P53 Signaling are also disrupted and drive the cancer. Caffeine manipulates the molecular pathways like Cell Cycle Checkpoints and P53 Signaling so as to disrupt them further. Hence avoid Caffeine supplements when undergoing Anastrozole treatment for ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma.

Should I take this Nutritional Supplement with Anastrozole treatment for ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma?

BirchBirch contains active ingredients Betulinic Acid and Lupeol. For ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma, along with other pathways, Cell Cycle Checkpoints and P53 Signaling are also disrupted and drive the cancer. Betulinic Acid manipulates the molecular pathways like Cell Cycle Checkpoints and P53 Signaling so as to cancel these disruptions. Hence Birch supplements are recommended with Anastrozole treatment for ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma.

Vitamin C:  For ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma, along with other pathways, Cell Cycle Checkpoints and P53 Signaling are also disrupted and drive the cancer. Vitamin C manipulates the molecular pathways like Cell Cycle Checkpoints and P53 Signaling so as to cancel these disruptions.  Hence Vitamin C supplements are recommended with Anastrozole treatment for ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma.

In Conclusion

Nutrition/diet which includes food and nutritional supplements is an effective tool which is controlled by you, while facing cancer such as ER+ Endometrial Carcinoma.

What food you eat and which supplements you take is a decision you make. Your decision should include consideration of the cancer gene mutations, which cancer, ongoing treatments and supplements, any allergies, lifestyle information, weight, height and habits.

The nutrition planning for cancer from addon is not based on internet searches. It automates the decision making for you based on molecular science implemented by our scientists and software engineers. Irrespective of whether you care to understand the underlying biochemical molecular pathways or not - for nutrition planning for cancer that understanding is needed.

Get started NOW with your nutrition planning by answering questions on the name of cancer, genetic mutations, ongoing treatments and supplements, any allergies, habits, lifestyle, age group and gender.

Foods to Eat After Cancer Diagnosis!

No two cancers are the same. Go beyond the common nutrition guidelines for everyone and make personalized decisions about food and supplements with confidence.


Cancer patients often have to deal with different chemotherapy side effects which affect their quality of life and look out for alternative therapies for cancer. Taking the right nutrition and supplements based on scientific considerations (avoiding guesswork and random selection) is the best natural remedy for cancer and treatment related side-effects.
