Meningiomas are benign tumors that develop in the thin membranes covering the brain and spinal cord (meninges), they usually grow slowly and do not invade the surrounding normal tissue (malignant tumor) and it is very rare when thay extend to other parts of central nervous system or body.
The symptoms of meningioma depend on where they are developed, the very small do not cause symptoms, the big ones can cause changes in symptoms and characteristics of the skull bone, which is observed by X-ray, a meningioma covering the frontoparietal parasagittal may cause progressive spastic weakness of the legs and incontinence, and then, mental dysfunction, seizures or persistent headaches, pressure inside the skull (vomiting, swelling, or protrusion of the blind spot in the back of the eye). In case of meningiomas, you must pay special attention if there are changes in visual acuity and / or hearing.

You can eat as much fruit as you want during these days, and all it will be your only food. You will start this diet by taking two tablespoons of olive oil on an empty stomach with half a clove of raw garlic, and a glass of warm water.
