What’s your secret? Did you change your diet? Start a fast??????
I did change my diet....added a lot of things that I never used to eat (food high in protein and antoxidants )
These are things I added and ate a LOT of
whole grain bread
Pretty much I started eating all fresh food (no processed or refined foods)...lots of greens, and berries ...berries are high in antioxidants.
When I found out I had cancer, I immediately got online and started researching...BUT I stayed away from any site that would tell me "how long I had
to live" or anything claiming to be a "cure" or anything negative. I looked up all I could find on nutrition.
After I found out what foods I needed to start eating, I started finding out what to STOP eating....and I cleaned out my pantry and fridge.
These are the things I STOPPED eating
MOST IMPORTANT IS SUGAR....no refined sugar and no foods or drinks with sugar in it!
white rice and pasta
I also started drinking purified water with fresh lemon juice in it all the time...ESPECIALLY during chemo and radiation....it helps flush the toxins
out quicker. This I think is the reason I never lost my hair or any of those things. My doctors were amazed by that because the kind of chemo I had is
one of the worst and all the people I saw at my chemo treatments had no hair. I was so scared and kept waiting for it...but it never happened..I think
all the lemon water I was drinking kept my system flushed out.
Other than this, I just did the chemo and radiation and did what the docs told me to. The radiation was the worst to ime, especially the last couple
I had severe radiation burns, so bad I spent a week in the hospital to treat the burns
That was awful. Imagine having burns on your body and then letting someone burn you again on top of those burns! That is what the last 2 weeks were
But I knew I HAD to do it....and I won't lie, I laid in bed crying like a baby from the pain....but I thought to myself, if I can stand one more week
of pain, I WILL get my life back! I just kept repeating that to myself over and over...
That's pretty much it....I just did what I had to, and tried to stay positive as much as I could. I never thought about dying and dwell on that...I
even told my doctors not to tell me "How long I have" or any of that....because I didn't want that negative thought inmy head. Oh....which brings me
to the finalbut VERY importanat thing.
Stay AWAY from negative people....they will drain you.
