so happy to hear

your good news !!! Will continue to keep you in good thought and prayer........... i started back to my gym a few weeks ago after almost 9 months off. and it is sooooo hard. But i know the best thing for me is to continue to try and do the best i can and work slowly up to my previous level of fitness. Most days i feel great that I have worked out....walking on the treadmill plus a bit of weight training.....but usually come Thurs I'm whipped.

Keep on keeping on , Tammy. Again Congrats on your good news !!!!
Hugs and Best wishes

Good News from my Dr.

Hi Tammy

I just stopped by to see your latest update. This is great news about your tumor shrinking! Hooray!

I love the story about your doctor de-hexing you. He sounds like a really great guy. I'm so glad that you can kid around with him - it must make it so much easier for you.

Get going on the exercise and better eating habits. They say it takes 21 days for something to become a habit, so don't let yourself stop before you reach that point. Sending positive energy your way.

Good News from my Dr.

Dear Tammy,

Your note brought tears to my eyes. So often I feel like I'm nagging . . . but I really think lifestyle changes help. I know that the effort you are making will help the chemo beat that tumor into oblivion! I am so happy to hear that it is shrinking!

As Beth said, it does take a while for something to become habit. As I've changed my eating, it's become easier. I am dying for a doughnut right now, but instead, I heated up some peas and lima beans, and had those instead. (Of course, I still want a doughnut.) :-)

I think it's important to note that I have not started any of these lifestyle changes from a "healthy" mode of eating. I have along been a wine collector, and one of my favorite "lazy" dinners is a nice plate of cheese and salami with a good bottle of red wine. Candy or ice cream? That's a fine dinner, too! So I want you to know that this has not been easy for me. Though I have a base of knowledge from my parents, I have long ignored it. I cannot afford to do so anymore. And to that end, I sold my 45-bottle dark wood wine rack just yesterday.

Truth be told, I haven't been able to do half the things I want to do, mostly because my doctors have been all, "Don't take vitamins! Don't eat raw food!" So . . . my Phase II action plan will soon kick into gear.

I am so glad to hear that the bloodroot is working for you. To that, maybe you can add Essiac tea (it tastes fine!) and maitake mushroom with D-fraction, which both have a strong history of helping to minimize tumors and/or keep cancer at bay. Not everything works for everybody, but you have to try.

Though I've eaten a lot of protein throughout chemo, I think I'm going to go the mostly vegan route, though I will still eat fish. I'm sure I will break down and eat junk every now and again. But instead of sugar daily, maybe I'll have it twice a week. And instead of ice cream, maybe I'll have sorbet. There are so many little changes that I can make!

Exercise . . . is so hard. But you have to force yourself to do it. It's so important in oxygenating your system. As is raw foods, especially carrots and the like.

I know you will beat this thing, Tammy! I am so, so glad that my "gentle persuasions" are helping. We all love you, and we all want you to get through this thing, and to get rid of that pesky tumor! If you can, buy "A Cancer Battle Plan" and read it. It's really interesting, and I think it'll give you some additional ideas for supplements and things to add to your diet. You don't have to do everything the author did. But it might be helpful.

You're always in my prayers! s!

Re: Exercise and Iron

I have always found that exercise begets more energy. Before my current medical history, if I felt tired, I walked a couple of miles, and came back feeling much better. Both in body and soul.

I would like to say something about eating meat. It is now back in my diet - usually slices of deli meat. For a long time - 5 years, I did not eat it, as, quite frankly, I did not like the way that animals were raised. (I was not a vegetarian, by the way).

However, it is a rich source of iron - the best source as far as I can determine. There are 2 types of iron 1) heme or hemo and 2) non-heme or non-hemo. The first type - the type that is more easily absorbed can only come from meat, fish, and poultry. No, I'm not talking about 10 ounce steaks here, but, for me, I need that iron. Iron deficiency, by the way, seems to be the #1 nutritional deficiency worldwide. If you do not have enough red blood cells, less oxygen to body = less energy.
