I have thermo scans periodically and my blood continues to be tested at 6 monthly intervals. The trend has continued towards the normal pattern. As I have mentioned previously, the tests are for two enzymes in the blood.
- Active Telomerase is a key enzyme that helps a cell to replicate. An increase in the number of cells with active telomerase reflects the destruction of cancer cells. My levels have always been upwards – which is beneficial and shows that cancer cells are being destroyed at a good rate.
- Tumour Marker – 2 Pyruvate Kinase (or PK): Some abnormal cells have an increased level of PK. The normal level is between 5.00-15.00. My level has fluctuated a little at times: for example, the PK level was between 10.3 (my lowest and best level last year) and 37.00 (the highest level in 2005 ) but an adjustment in the diet has set it back down towards normal again.
I have usually been within the normal range. My last blood test was 28.67 – which shows a slight metabolic disturbance, according to the consultant – and my supplements have been reviewed again to account for it. There is an explanation for this, however.
I have recently discovered that I am gluten intolerant and had an infection, which caused my scan to show some “hot spots” indicating changes in temperature that remain after the body has cooled. My diet has been changed and I am now avoiding bread, oats, wheat
, and barley. Although the infection did not cause me to feel ill, I was finding it difficult to digest wheat, yeast and gluten, and it was interfering with how the nutrients were being absorbed.
My current diet will ensure an alkaline environment in the body, and things should then settle down again.
The cancer remains in remission, it has not spread and I continue to feel fit and well. I have caught a few infections – about 3 in the past 3 ½ years, including the last one, which is far less than average.
It just goes to show that providing you keep fit and well by the use of a good diet and supplement program, cancer cells cannot survive. This is a lesson that I hope others will follow rather than submit to the risky strategy of surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, none of which can tell the difference between healthy tissue and cancerous tissue, and causes so much harm to the body.
I hope you have enjoyed my alternative diary and found it helpful.
