Okay, it's been well over a year since we have seen that pesky MM show up on a blood test or bone marrow biopsy. We are still many years from proclaiming a cure, but we aren't going to stop trying to kick it. Every day is an opportunity to remind the disease who is boss.
When I was diagnosed, I wanted to look at holistic options for treating my disease. Well, consumed with two little tots, a career, and pressed for time to do research, I opted for the modern approach to taking on cancer with a heck of a lot of stuff that's not good for human consumption, in hopes the bad cells all get elbow dropped to oblivion, and the harm to the good cells is very limited with no lasting affects (i.e. second cancer).
Now, I have some time to breathe, enjoy my family, grow my business ( Torrent Consulting )...AND...return to this idea of taking a holistic approach to dominating cancer. Please leave a comment on what you have tried!!!
I have had several dietary related convictions over the years, one is that I want to be a raw vegan foodist. 8 years ago I gave up meat, and I proved to myself I can make some pretty big lasting changes in my diet. Now as a cancer patient, I am thinking of what other dietary changes I should make to give me the best chances of making that game winning kick. One is adding meat back into my diet.
First, I saw a holist doctor last week in West Bloomfield. The guy doesn't take any new patients, but he does LOVE Michigan football....so we lucked in with getting an appointment. He took what seemed to be half my blood from my body and half a pound of hair from my head for analysis purposes. We meet in a couple of weeks to see what he thinks.
In the meantime, I am toying with the idea of cutting out carbs from my diet....and I have already started to experiment. I am perplexed with how a vegetarian can do this...given we are more like carb-etarians in the Brabbs' household. Sugars have been linked as the fuel source for cancer. Not sure how true that is, but I am buying the logic, or at least going to factor it into the approach for my new diet aimed to dominate cancer.
If you or someone you know has said 'No to Carbs'....tell me how they did this without feeling sluggish all day long (me yesterday). By the way, I don't drink coffee or soda....although my tea has been nice!
The other thing I started taking is essential oils...kudos to Cassie on this one. Specifically frankincense. I figured if it was a good enough gift for the King of Kings, Jesus; maybe it could me a magical potion for dominating my Myeloma. Who knows....but I am giving it a shot. I am dominating five drips of this every night in a veggie capsule.
I would love to learn how other people are taking on cancer with their diet. Are you juicing? Are you drinking wheat grass? Are you making mud pies?????
