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 NOTCH+ Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) 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 NOTCH+ Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) 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 Asparagus and Bamboo are recommended when undergoing Fludarabine treatment for NOTCH+ Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL). But Rosemary and Quinoa are recommended when treatment changes to Cyclophosphamide. 

Similarly Ginseng supplements are recommended with Fludarabine treatment for NOTCH+ Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL). But Diosmin supplements are recommended when treatment changes to Cyclophosphamide. So always personalize your nutrition to your cancer gene mutations and other factors.



What is NOTCH+ Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)?

NOTCH+ Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) is one of the different subtypes of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL). In this subtype of CLL, mutation of a gene called NOTCH is detected. The defects or aberrations or mutations in this gene can either drive cancer (tumor promoters) or remove brakes on cancer progression (tumor suppressors).  NOTCH gene mutations are prevalent in cancer Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL). 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 NOTCH+ Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)

Why Are Some Foods Recommended in the Diet for NOTCH+ Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)?

Foods and Supplements contain different active ingredients which manipulate different molecular pathways relevant to cancers such as NOTCH+ Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL). 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 NOTCH+ Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL), cancer pathways or processes like NFKB Signaling, Hippo Signaling, Cell Cycle, MYC Signaling, Apoptosis, Hypoxia, Vitamin D Signaling, Angiogenesis, DNA Repair, Replication Stress, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling, Notch Signaling, MAPK Signaling, Small Molecule Transport, Growth Factor Signaling, P53 Signaling, Nucleotide metabolism, RUNX Signaling, Cell Survival, Amino Acid Metabolism, Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition, Extracellular Matrix Remodelling, Oxidative Stress and JAK-STAT 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/diet for cancer such as NOTCH+ Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) depends on the type of cancer, treatments and supplements being taken (if any), age, gender, BMI, lifestyle and any genetic information available.

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.
