I just pulled this page out of my files, wanted to share with a friend whose mom is fighting cancer; in fact, I have shared this page with a few friends, unfortunately! Anyway, I was thinking everyone should have access to my cancer fighting highlights. I I I am also celebrating my latest blood test results and I am doing extremely well; ALL my levels are back to normal finally and my tumor marker is well below the normal range. So, two years down and three more to go!!!
Hope these notes can help someone fight their own good fight:
Life is awfully overwhelming and moves in slow-mo for a while; it’s impossible to know it all right away but you WILL HAVE plenty of time to learn what you need to, so don’t put overdue stress on yourself.
- CRAZY SEXY CANCER
- THETRUTHABOUTCANCER.COM (I watched it for free)
- STAY TUNED FOR MY E-BOOK COMING OUT SOON… A BOOK FULL OF EVERYTHING I HAVE LEARNED DURING MY CANCER BATTLE
It is very important that everyone around you stays healthy so your immune system isn’t compromised.
Get a theme/fight song!
You need humor, especially during treatments!
Sleep a minimum of eight hours a day.
Organic food is very important and eating a wide range of fruits and vegetables is ideal… juicing is super powerful & highly recommended. I love my juicer and it is easy to clean — Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Juicer.
Grass fed beef and pasture raised poultry is also important; I happen to be gluten free and try for vegan living (I splurge on good cheese and sushi).
Filtered water is good (I use a Zero Water system and the Berkey). No plastic bottled water!!
Green tea with hibiscus flowers, shitake mushrooms, cruciferous vegetables, nuts, flax seed oil (add to cottage cheese with fruit), turmeric, kale
No grilled foods
No sugar… use honey, agave or brown sugar if needed.
This list could go forever… and you will learn more from the books I suggested.
You can also check out the nutrition section on my website TahoeBoHo.com; there are some great food lists under the nutrition page to help at the grocery store, and I am always adding more stuff!!
Glass and stainless steel for food/beverage storage and cooking..
Oxygen kills cancer… daily walks really helped me fight my tumor and my sadness!
POSITIVITY SAVES LIVES, you must believe he will get better… with all you’ve gotJ
I love yoga & meditation, but visualization might be better for kids – video games in your head killing cancer cells is supposed to be great!
I took a homeopathic route during treatment (lifestyle & diet changes), but went full eastern once chemo ended to cleanse and clear. Some of the things I did during this stage:
- no chicken (makes things grow fast)
- no shellfish (toxins)
- only hot liquids & foods (keeps your body from focusing on your core temperature & can just fight cancer)
- a lot of rice & beans
- herbs & other random things that don’t often get explained well – eastern medicine requires the same blind acceptance as western.
It’s important to mention that such a strict diet is really hard and chemo should just be enough… so I allowed myself guilt-free cheating every day during treatment and that did make life a bit more fun. I got my chocolate bite at the end of a lot of nights – shenanigans are good!!
IMMUNOTHERAPY IS ALL THE RAGE, so ask… but I didn’t get it, so don’t have experience to share.
Learn to love the lifestyle that loves you back!!!
