The Great Detector, Progress and Cancer Truths

This is a thermography camera.  Not scary at all.  Nothing touches you - nothing hurts you, or causes cancer, like mammography.

This is a thermography camera. Not scary at all. Nothing touches you – nothing hurts you, or causes cancer, like mammography.

I’ve made great strides since we last met.  God has been working on my heart, and mind and helping to show me new ways He created to heal myself.

First, myofunctional therapy.  It works.

I’ve learned to keep my mouth closed at night – through the various exercises I’m doing with my children.  At first, I thought it was a fluke… but a week later, I knew it was for real.  I was a believer.  My son has his appointment next month to get his tongue and lip untied as well, and after the first of the year – we’ll be looking at being expanded and braces… together.  I think our orthodontist finally gets that this isn’t about looks – as much as it is oxygenating our bodies, and restoring our health – for now and the future.

Check out how much MORE air is moved through your nasal cavity at night, while your mouth is closed.  God has a purpose in warming and filtering that air also.

Secondly, I talked to my ND about LND (Low dose Naltrexone – compounded), and Alpha Lipoic Acid.  They work together to help keep the stress I can’t control from taking over my health.  This couldn’t have happened at a better time.  I had been considering it for a long while – as the results with helping those with MS were pretty significant.  Within the first week, I noticed the back spasms I’ve had for years – were gone.  I’m about 3 weeks into it now – and they are still gone.  Praise be to God.  I’m on a low dose now – and I’m thankful that is working.  It’s a good sign – because as we all know, we simply can’t control all of the junk going on around us, and that really tanks my adrenals and my immune system.

Thirdly, after watching most of the Truth About Cancer series, I started taking Fulvic acid.  There is plenty of info out there, but here is a small bit of the benefits.  The doctor who shared about it said in all of this 8000 patients, he had never had a negative reaction to it.  That gave me a bit of hope – as I seem to react to everything.  So far, so good!  The doctor said he didn’t want it sound like a ‘Magic Bullet” or too good to be true – but I’ll admit – I’ve noticed a boost in energy, and my kids have seemed more level on it.  Not only does it gives your body essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids, it binds to toxins, and works as a chelator to metals and other things you don’t want inside of you.  The other cool thing is, it could have only been created in nature by something “like the flood”. 🙂 God knew we were going to mess things up, and He allows us a way to restore!  Praise be to Him.

Lastly, I had my thermography appointment in the midst of “breast cancer” awareness month.  I’ve noticed some changes in my left breast, and because I’ve had fibroids in the past – I just thought it would be smart to check up on things, for my future health.

The test was relatively simple, with the most difficult part being sticking my hands in ice cold water as a “challenge” to see if the spots in question still show up as being “fed”.  I was to get my results within a few weeks, and if everything was normal, I wouldn’t need to speak to the doctor.  I set my “phone appointment” – with the intent to cancel if all was well.

The weeks came and went… and I didn’t hear from my doctor.

I knew something had to have been in question – and deep down, I think I knew something was there all along.

Last week my ND confirmed my thoughts…  My fibroid showed up on the right side, and on the left side, near my other fibroid, there is an area in question, being fed vascularly.

She requested I get a sonogram, and I can’t remember much else she said after that…

I had some questions… we talked about my past issues on that side…

I always struggled with mastitis due to dense breast tissue, scar tissue and being lumpy.  Before my test, I thought maybe I was dealing with non-lactating mastitis…  that maybe some underlying infection in my breast was causing issues.

As I talked through things with my ND I became acutely aware of how I got to where I was.

My lack of regular cycle stemmed from not absorbing the right nutrients in my early teens and loading my liver with estrogen from the fake hormone therapy (BCP) at high levels.

The BCP never solved things with my irregular cycles and contributed  to the massive, fast growing tumors I had from ages 15 to when I went off at age 23 when married.
Having those 3 breast surgeries, to remove fibroids, led to scar tissue and combined with the lumps and poor diet, led to chronic mastitis.
That chronic inflammation and antibiotic cycle continued to break down my gut, thyroid and immune system.

Thyroid dysfunction is essential for cancer to grow.

So my chiropractor happened to ask me “when” I would get off of the Estro-DIM I was on.  I didn’t have an answer…  I assumed I would be on it … indefinitely.  He said, “but when your liver is functioning well, you should be able to get that out of your body.  You should be able to go off of it”

The wheels were turning, but I still wasn’t getting it.

So basically this estrogen, that continues to cycle and ramp up in my body is causing cancer to be fed in my left breast, and as my ND said, “We need to get that estrogen – OUT!”

So…  I set my appointment for a sonogram this week to see exactly what we’re looking at… and we’ll go from there.

My chiropractor suggested another saliva hormone (cortisol test) to see where my estrogen levels are.  If they’re still sky-high – perhaps an estrogen inhibitor for a time while I’m detoxing – could help me get over the hump.  Clearly my body hasn’t done it on its own yet.  I appreciate health-care providers who help weigh your options, and really do “get” natural healing.

I am not scared, I am thankful for the gift of this information, and the opportunity to help my body be well.

I know I’m in better shape than most.  Tackling a new diet doesn’t need to happen… but increased detoxing does.  Staying the course with de-stressing, exercise and sleep.  (Ok, so I still need more sleep!)

I’ve increased my juice in-take, been working on resolving negative emotions from relationships that destroy, and purposefully avoiding those who are toxic to my health. (Yes that’s number one when disease appears – negative emotions and stress destroy your immune system).

I know we all deal with things differently.  What works for some, doesn’t work for others…  I’ve learned over the course of the past three years, it’s easier for me to just not talk about things openly until I have a plan.    “Checking in” with people stresses me out.  I knew writing this all out would help me.  My mom and husband and kids know – and kids said this.  “I’m not a afraid mom, because I know that God will show you what to do.” 

They are right.

Not only that?  But a thermography shows more than a mammogram would have … maybe for years.  So I must assume I’m ahead of where I might be otherwise.

Until next time!

If you missed the Auto Immune Summit, or the Truth About Cancer series – please take the time to check them out.  SO much great information out there for us to help ourselves.  God is good.

And He said to him,

“Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.”

(Luke 17:19)

Bearing Fruit – Self Control

fruit-garden-4

If I didn’t mention before, we are studying the character trait of self-control in school.  (I’m learning a lot!)  Self-control is important in many facets of our lives, and it can be easy to focus on one area and then overlook another.  I stumbled upon this devotional from 2008, written by Rick Warren.  I thought it had some great encouragement that also applied to our journey of being healthy for Him.  The success that’s important, isn’t of the worldly form, but rather … in obedience to God.  Let us bear much fruit to bring Him glory!

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

“Successful people have one obvious trait in common: personal discipline. They are willing to do things that average people are unwilling to do.

It’s my observation that successful people express their self-discipline in six ways:

· Successful people master their moods. They live by their commitments, not their emotions. They do the right thing, even when they don’t feel like it. “A person without self-control is as defenseless as a city with broken-down walls” (Proverbs 25:28 NLT).

· Successful people watch their words. They put their minds in gear before opening their mouths: “Those who control their tongue will have a long life . . .” (Proverbs 13:3 NLT).

· Successful people restrain their reactions. How much can you take before you lose your cool? “People with good sense restrain their anger; they earn esteem by overlooking wrongs” (Proverbs 19:11 NLT).

· Successful people stick to their schedule. If you don’t determine how you will spend your time, you can be sure that others will decide for you! “So be careful how you live, not as fools but as those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity for doing good in these evil days” (Ephesians 5:15-16 NLT).

· Successful people manage their money. They learn to live on less than what they make, and they invest the difference. The value of a budget is that it tells your money where you want it to go rather than wondering where it went: “The wise have wealth and luxury, but fools spend whatever they get” (Proverbs 21:20 NLT).

· Successful people maintain their health. That way they can accomplish more and enjoy their achievements: “Control your body and live in holiness . . .” (1 Thessalonians 4:4 NLT).”

Most of you know the Scripture with the fruits of the Spirit.  If not, it’s part of our key Scriptures today… but also, take note of the last part of what God’s Word says.  It’s a key point that is often overlooked.  If we’re living by the Spirit, we will realize our human limitations, short comings, and inadequacies, and we will not set our goals on what other people are doing.  Envy does destroy.  Compare up.  Let your competition be with yourself to become a better you for HIM.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  Against such things there is no law.  Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passion and desires.  Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.  Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.” – Galatians 5:22-26
