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 ...
All in all I much preferred being in control of all my treatment rather than being helpless and reliant on doctors to reassure me about what was going on. I remember that when my daughter Emma was in hospital, she had a similar experience.
Nurses and medical staff were often too busy to give us any time to reassure us about Emma’s ...
My decision to become a nutritionist was directly related to
my own experiences using nutrition to cure my breast cancer.
changes I made following my diagnosis arguably saved my life, and my decision
not to have surgery was perhaps the most important I ever made. I wanted to get the message out about how
much I was helped by ...
We had put our house on the market earlier in the year and
at the end of November 2005 we sold up in Cardiff and moved 45 miles away to Swansea.
It was a very stressful time as most moves are, especially as we had booked up
a holiday to go away for Christmas again to Fuerteventura, and the time of the
completion was likely to clash with ...
In July 2005 I went for another scan. I was advised to stop wearing under-wired bras as it was blocking the flow of lymph fluid, by “hot-spots” around the underarm area and under breast area – which showed up clearly on the scans. Soft bras are much better and don’t restrict the flow.
The scan was fine – ...
I carried on with the diet and supplements. When I had been away at Christmas I ate really well and found that I could still enjoy a lot of good food without feeling that I was “depriving” myself of anything.
However, having to watch what I ate all the time did get to me at times. I’m not the kind of person that responds ...
In September 2004 I visited my GP as I was suffering from bouts of diarrhoea and was worried that I was not absorbing my supplements enough. He told me to take Imodium to stop it, but the symptoms persisted along with other IBS symptoms I had not experienced for a long time.
During this time I lost a lot of weight, developed a high ...
The new health regime I had introduced to beat my breast cancer had two particularly noticeable effects.
My reaction to B17
I was taking large doses of B17 in the form of up to 50 kernels a day plus two tablets twice a day. The nutritionist was surprised I could tolerate so many, and certainly I felt a bit nauseous from time to ...
The results of the blood tests gave me even more conviction that surgery was the wrong route.
When doctors take a tumour away, they cannot take the cancer away completely as it is not a local disease but a symptom of a disease. If cancer is a rogue healing process, as many experts seem to think, taking healthy tissue away at the same ...
After a bit of searching on some Internet sites, I found the article about apricot kernels that I vaguely remembered from before. I read avidly, and needed to find out more. I sent for books, and that weekend I started to chew apple pips (which contain B17) and ordered apricot kernels, thinking that it could only help if I started ...
