~ Food Has Power ~
Justine, this is fascinating, especially as I've always had a hypersensitive parasympathetic nervous system...
I'm wondering if the MTHFR impaired detoxification system is a variable. Thanks for the link. I'll do some reading.
Also, I stumbled upon more information with regards to supplementation. This list from Life Extention Foundation has pointers on what not to take while healing leukemia.
Also, I remember reading once on Dr Mercola's site that a nurse he knew had been diagnosed with leukemia and then while getting a second opinion, found out it was just a severe fungal infection. The catch was that she herself was a pediatric chemo nurse, so most of her patients were children with leukemia. So the idea of the disease being potentially "contagious" was posited, but in actuality it was the administering of such strong medications which had encouraged fungal overgrowth in her body.
Sarah, how are you doing right now? You are quite brave!
Just catching up with this Sarah!!!!! (((HUGS))) I also just read your first three blogposts, and I'm blown away. I'm sending healing thoughts and much love your way! And I wanted to second this:
"Sarah, you sound strong, like water."
I'm thinking of you and your family, and just astounded and inspired by your strength and your ability/willingness to flow like water.
Much love to you!
I am doing well. I completed my course of chemo; I wasn't confident of the resources available to me to avoid that approach. AML is really fast moving and I was dying faster than I could try to heal myself. I have had the last biopsy. We are still waiting on the pathologists final report, but the preliminary results are positive and that's what the oncologist expects. His exact words were "I am confident that it will be clear." I guess I am out of that excuse and free lasagnas now! Probably a good thing; lasagna isn't so good for me.
