Puzzling the Pieces Together

Im back in NY for a little over a week, but it feels like a month. Its alot of work, specifically brain power, to put all the pieces of the puzzle together. Cancer, or any health condition for that matter, is extremely complicated and there are many different aspects that need to be taken into consideration when trying to reverse it and heal yourself. Its been about three years now since the cancer crept back up on me. In that time it has been a whirlwind. To say the least!!!  So many different doctors, different treatment options, so many opinions, so many schools of thought. I hear that "I shouldnt eat this and I should only eat that and I shouldnt take this supplement and I must take this supplement and too much exercise is no good but exercise helps rid the tumors." Make up your mind people!! Its confusing and a time comes where you have to sit back and use common sense and think "okay what will work best for me?" Bottom line is we know our bodies and we have to listen to our bodies to know what is good and what is not good for us.  Also, research! Its a must!! A doctor or a specialist could tell you something is good or bad for you but the rationale and proof is critical. So now that I have a wealth of information I have to think about all the recommendations I have got in the last three years and decide what regimen I will follow.

For now I am piecing together all the programs and doctor's recommendations together. Basically a little bit of this and a little bit of that. It took time but I am learning little signs of how my body is doing. If I have a coating of white on my tongue that means too much mucus and I have to cut down on dairy. Little things like this help me gauge how Im doing.

The pieces of the puzzle feel endless......quality water, anti cancer diet, lots of veggies, juicing, replenishing vitamins, exercise, quality supplements, wheat grass, good digestive health (enemas & colonics), acupuncture, hydration, physical therapy, happiness, relaxation, essential oils, meditation, lab tests, sleep, sun, smiling, cellect supplement,  doctors, staying far away from the standard american diet, and endless research.

Each one of these puzzle pieces is very involved and has a puzzle within it. I will blog about all of these as the weeks progress.

In the beginning the puzzle felt like a thousand double sided piece puzzle but now it is more manageable. I now feel like I am piecing together a 100 piece puzzle. The more knowledge you get the more it makes sense....complete sense! When you can understand the why and how of something it makes it that much easier to stick to make it a lifestyle.
