"What Did You Do?"

Because I am a cancer survivor, people are always asking me, "What did you do?"  When I was first diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins lymphoma, after the initial shock, I wondered if there was anything that I could do; anything that would help my body to fight off this disease.  The oncologist was firm in that there was nothing; nothing that would make any difference apart from chemotherapy.

Well, I would like to disagree. There is always something that you can do.  I searched and read anything and everything I could about cancer and I found many books that were encouraging.  I found that cancer is not always a death sentence.  It is very hard to pick just one book; but, I will mention the very first one that I came in contact with, that I truly believed I could follow.  It was entitled the "Cancer Battle Plan Sourcebook" by David J. Frahm.  This book was complete in that it addressed every aspect of my life and helped me to believe that I could help my body to rid itself of this disease. 

One of the first things that I looked at was my diet. So much of what we eat is full of toxins and our bodies have become sluggish because of it. The body is just not able to rid itself of these toxins as it was originally designed to do. As a result I did become a vegan and ate mostly raw foods, along with juicing.  I also added some recommended dietary supplements.

Along with this process of detoxification I included such things as dry brushing, bouncing on a trampoline, etc.  There so many things to talk about when it comes to the topic of detoification that I think I shall devote a whole article to it; but for now I would like to mention that Nutronix has a very, safe and gentle overall detox program for the average person.  You can find out about it by clicking on the link to the left.  I have personally used these products and feel comfortable in recommending them to you.

Another very important thing that I learned was to surround myself with positive people.  I imagined myself in a boat and had to decide who I would put in the boat with me.  It certainly was not helpful to have people telling me what to do all the time, either.  I wanted people who believed with me that I would get well, no matter what my doctor said.  Along with this, prayer became increasingly important.

There are many more things I could talk about, but the bottom line is there is something you can do and it may not be what I have done.  I eventually did take chemotherapy.  My advice is for you to become informed; choose what will work for you and who you will work with.  Believe in yourself and trust the wisdom within.  Then, amidst the storm find peace and the strength to enjoy the life that you have been given.
