Surviving Uterine Leiomyosarcoma - Naturally!

Incorporating a Healing Lifestyle 

into the Real Life of A Cancer Survivor



A Natural Approach to Uterine Leiomyosarcoma
My 55th Birthday - So Happy to Be Alive! 

Let's Talk About What a Healing Lifestyle Might Look Like

     I went for my check-up with my gynecological oncologist this week, and it's been 3 1/2 years without a recurrence of the disease. I feel healthy and strong, and in many ways much better than I ever did before. The doctor looked at my original lab report and pronounced it "remarkable" that I was sitting across from him, looking so vital. He told me to "keep doing what you are doing." There are many women who have asked if I would write down what I do on a daily basis, so this is for all of you!

     As I proceed on my journey to continually strengthen my immune system in hopes of preventing the return of Uterine Leiomyosarcoma, I face the challenge of how to fit all of the wonderful things I want to do for myself into every day life. Some of the most important things I do on a daily/weekly basis are:  juicing, meditation, guided imagery, preparing salads and raw foods, organic shopping, acupuncture, exercise, sunlight, breath-work, supplements, reading healing books, green drinks, energy work, emotional clearing, and lots of good sleep! If you are wondering how I fit it all in... the answer is YES, IT IS A FULL-TIME JOB!

     I would be remiss if I didn't first and foremost thank my husband for supporting me both emotionally and financially, allowing me to do everything that I need to do for myself. 

     When we were first informed that I had ULMS, my mother told me that I was going to be fine and immediately guided me to read books by Bernie Siegel, M.D., a pioneer in how the mind affects the body. His book, Love, Medicine and Miracles: Lessons Learned about Self-Healing from a Surgeon's Experience with Exceptional Patients, was the first in a collection of positive books about people who have been healed of cancer that I refer to on a regular basis.

Mornings

     Mornings are my time to nourish myself. I am a "morning person" so I use my best time to tend to myself rather than putting myself last. (This was an important concept to learn.)

     Upon awaking, I lie still in bed, face up with arms at sides, and mentally scan each part of my body, noting how each part feels. It's a lovely, dreamy feeling when your body first wakes up, and it's a great time to mentally memorize what relaxation feels like so you can learn to carry it with you throughout the rest of the day. Next, I imagine roots growing out of my feet going deep down into the earth, grounding me. I ask to be cleared mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually from anything that hinders my health and healing. Then, I listen for guidance. Finally, I take my hands and hold their warmth above any part of my body that needs healing. I imagine a white light from Heaven coming in through the top of my head and flowing through my hands, bringing a healing energy to any part of my body that needs it. This is part of what is called energy work.

     Upon arising, I always scrape my tongue and brush my teeth to get rid of  bacteria before consuming any food. I start the day by taking two tablespoons of Liposomal Curcumin (which stops tumor growth by preventing the formation of blood vessels which feed the tumor) and Liposomal Can-Help Complex (a liposomal nano particle blend of vitamin c, glutathione, curcumin, resveretrol, CoQ10, B1, B6 & B12 designed to replicate intravenous vitamin c results). It is extremely important to take these in liposomal form because they pass through the gut directly into the bloodstream. They are taken on an empty stomach, so I might get showered, clean the kitchen, juice vegetables, go for a walk, or check my e-mail while I wait to have breakfast.

     Breakfast includes fresh pressed juice. I juice once every three days and put it up in 8 ounce glass canning jars filled to the brim in the refrigerator. For practical purposes, I don't juice every day, but if you are able to, or you are fighting active disease I would recommend juicing every day. (My family juiced every day for me in the beginning.) I always juice carrot-apple-celery; carrot-apple-dandelion; cucumber-celery; and red beet-apple. In the summer I love Kale lemonade. Adding a little apple releases more nutrients in the carrots than if you do carrot alone. The nutrients in juiced carrots are cancer fighters. Dandelion is a liver detoxifier (and my mother had a dream about it healing me). Beets are also a liver cleanser. Cucumber juice is used at the Optimum Health Institute during their detoxification week.

     The other part of breakfast includes a piece of Ezekiel 100% flourless toast (made solely from sprouts) with 2 tablespoons of flax seed oil or coconut oil on it. Note that I don't consume any product made from flour. Flour products break down into sugar too quickly and are NOT consumed on the anti-cancer diet. At that time I drink a cup of organic, water processed decaf coffee with coconut milk creamer. Yum! I take supplements with breakfast, lunch and dinner.

My Supplementation Schedule 

(B = at Breakfast, L = at Lunch, D = at Dinner) 
I put my capsules and tablets in a pill divider that is marked Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner/Bedtime. I bought a pack of seven dividers, so I load up all of my supplements once a week and I am set to go! It makes all the difference.

1. Healthy Items' Liposomal Curcumin, anti-cancer, stops tumors from establishing blood vessels - before Breakfast on empty stomach, wait 10 mins.
2. Healthy Items' Can-Help, anti-cancer, if you aren't on IV Vitamin C infusions this is the next-best treatment, before Breakfast on an empty stomach, wait 10 mins. to eat

3. Broken Cell Wall Chlorella for increasing the function of your immune system, 2 gm. divided B-L-D
4. Multi-Enzyme High Potency digestive enzymes Dr. Murray, 1 at B-L-D
5. Nature's Way DIM-plus for estrogen metabolism, important for estrogen positive tumors, 1 at L
6. Jarrow MK-7 from Natto, bone/cardiovascular health, reduces inflammation and increases cancer cell death, 1 at L
7. Integrative Lipotropic Complex supports liver  function, supports proper estrogen metaboliztion, 2 at B, 3 at D
8. Natural Factors Biosil for skin, hair, nails, bones, made of Silica that strengthens the immune system and detoxifies the liver, 6 drops at B
9. Carlson's 2000IU Liquid D3 for immune system, 2 drops at B

14. Jarrow Silymarin Milk Thistle anti-inflammatory 1 at D
15. Ayurceutics Boswellia anti-inflammatory 1 at L 
16. Barlean's High Lignan Flax Seed Oil, 1 TBSP at B
17. Carlson's Norwegian Cod Liver Oil, 1 TBSP at L
18. G.T.'s Kombucha, one bottle a day, 5 X per week, anti-cancer digestive supplement, immune system, fermented raw drink
19. Sometimes - Garden of Life Primal Defense Probiotic (multiple strains and refrigerated is a must)
20. GermanZyme pancreatic enzymes, they dissolve the protein coating around cancer cells, allowing the immune system to destroy them, 2 at B-L-D
21. Chinese Mushroom formula used in Chinese Medicine from acupuncturist, enhances immune system, 2-3 B-L-D

Anti-Cancer Hormones

1.  Melatonin 25 mg. at bedtime, anti-cancer and sleep-aid. Melatonin has been proven in scientific studies to cause cancer cell death in leiomyosarcoma in particular!!
2.  Bioidentical Estriol from naturopath, hormone replacement cream  2X per week, pea-sized amount applied vaginally 
3. Sometimes - Bioidentical Progesterone capsules from naturopath for hormone balance
4. Sometimes - DHEA oral spray from naturopath for hormone balance
Note:Only use bioidentical hormones when you have had cancer, and work with a Naturopath that specializes in hormones. Replacing hormones can give you energy and a sense of well being, making you feel younger. 

For the first 2 1/2 years I was a raw Vegan, following the Hallelujah Acres Diet. But in the past year I have had to add a small amount of organic, free-range animal protein back into my diet to build up my muscle tissue. Nuts and lentils just weren't doing it for me! Once a week I eat a couple of organic, cage-free, free-range eggs for breakfast. Locally grown is best. Once every week or two I will enjoy Wild-Caught Salmon. I never eat dairy because the protein found in dairy, known as casein, was used in numerous laboratory studies to turn on and off cancerous tumors on in mice (The China Study). I don't eat chicken, pork or beef. I don't eat products made from flour; instead I eat organic, sprouted, flourless products from Ezekiel or Oasis bakeries, but no more than one slice per day. Corn and soy are notorious genetically modified foods - I never eat them unless they say organic and non-GMO. I also avoid sweets with the exception of organic, dark chocolate. For the most part, you are better off to eat a piece of fruit as your "treat." I don't use Agave - from my research it is no better than high fructose corn syrup. When my sweet tooth calls, I look for the lowest grams of sugar in organic dark chocolate. :)
 

Mid-Morning

The middle of the morning is a very productive time for me. My original tendency was to work hard at this time. But I have changed that! Now I use that time to make sure I get done the things I need to do for myself first. So I may juice, go shopping at my favorite organic store, prepare my salads, read a healing book, exercise or get out in the sunlight at this time. I never tire myself out! A wise holistic MD once told me that you should SAVE YOUR ENERGY FOR HEALING. If you are in the early stages of recovery, sit outdoors and read a book. Relax! Allow your body to use the energy it has to heal you. Don't use up all of your energy doing things until you feel tired. Now I get a lot done each day without getting tired. But I make sure to only do one or two big things a day and always STOP before I feel worn out. I always take along my green drink or drink it right before I go.
 

Lunch Time

For Lunch I sit down and have a big, organic salad with spinach, arugala, 2 kinds of sprouts (pea sprouts or sunflower sprouts and broccoli sprouts), raw broccoli, tomatoes, red onions, strawberries or blueberries (in season), cucumber, red bell pepper, and purple cabbage. That is my standard salad. I make other salads with fewer ingredients, but my standard salad ensures that I have dark greens, calciferous veggies and sprouts that I must consume daily. I enjoy an ak-mak organic cracker with soup or salad. I love to drink a Kombucha with my lunch and perhaps another juice at this time. In the colder months, I make soup from a base of organic broth with carrots, leeks,tomatoes, zucchini, yellow onions, red lentils, split peas, garlic and seasonings. I also enjoy  tomato-basil soup, vegetable soup, broccoli soup, carrot-ginger soup all made from scratch with organic ingredients.
 

Snacks

Organic Apple Slices with Raw Almond Butter
Organic Celery and Organic Peanut Butter
Half Banana with Organic Peanut Butter
Green Smoothie (Barley Max Berry, 1/3 Frozen Banana, Small Bunch Kale, Ice and Water, Blended in Vitamix Blender)
Humus  *   Kale Chips  *  Fruit  *  Raw Organic Nuts *  Berries
 

Afternoons

After taking care of my own needs in the morning, I work from home professionally, but no more than 10 hours per week. I also do paperwork, errands, and cooking for my family in the afternoon. If I ever feel like my energy is running low, I will relax and watch movies, or even take a nap after a meditation. Another juice, Kombucha, or green drink should be consumed every two or three hours.
 

Dinner and Evening Time

Dinner consists of another serving of salad with a small portion of something cooked. It might be a steamed vegetable, an occasional sweet potato, or a small portion of a vegetarian dish. Another favorite is Raw Nut Burgers made from organic, raw, ground walnuts, almonds and sesame seeds mixed with minced red bell peppers, garlic, onions, Nama Shoyu and cayenne pepper.

The evening is spent helping my son with homework and catching up on shows I like to watch. I try to drink one more green drink in the evening.


Bedtime

When I have time, I love to go to my sanctuary and do a short meditation before going to bed. It is sooo relaxing and gets my body ready for the most healing time of day - when I am asleep. I sleep for 10 hours a night. Sleep is vital if you want to heal from disease.


Descriptions of Things I  Do Daily or Weekly

1. Juicing - I juice vegetables and put up jars to drink over the next day or two. I do this every third day. I drink at least 2 glasses of fresh pressed vegetable juice and 2 Barley Max or green drinks every day. When I was first diagnosed I drank one 8 ounce glass of juice every hour of the day. It is an essential part of healing from cancer. Juice provides nutrients that go directly into the bloodstream without having to be digested.

2. Meditation and Guided Imagery - I do this every day. Sometimes I listen to Guided Imagery when I take a walk outside. Other times I sit in a special place that I have made for myself where I meditate with incense, candles and music. Another way to meditate is to read one of the healing books and allow the thoughts to bring healing to the mind. Many of the Guided Imagery CD's also include energy work. 
Deuter - a great artist who makes music for meditation - Buddha Nature and Reiki Hands of Light are favorites
Native American Flute Music for Meditation

3. Exercise and Sunlight - I try to do some form of exercise and get out in the sunlight 3-4 times a week. Sometimes it means eating a meal outside on my deck, or going for a walk on the trail. I also enjoy Jazzercise, Zumba, and a circuit at the gym. My goal for this summer is to exercise a lot more! Exercise boosts the immune system by stimulating the lymphatic system which eliminates toxins. In order to get the lymph fluid flowing, you must MOVE your body. It doesn't have a pump like the heart does to move the blood. Aerobic activity is the best way to do this.

4. Shopping and Preparing Salads - I shop at an organic co-op that has the freshest, organic produce possible. I make one or two huge salads that will last me for  5 to 7 days. This way I just grab of big portion of my salad for lunch and dinner, without the constant preparation. 

5. Emotional Clearing and Healing - I found it imperative to go through the Cancer Self-Healing Guide. It took me many months to journal through all of the questions, but it allowed me to clear myself of all old wounds which some cancer experts believe can cause a recurrence of the disease. Now I do a daily clearing, asking the Heavens to clear me of anything that binds me emotionally. I pay close attention to my heart and my gut, so I don't allow anger or resentment to take root in my pain body.

6. Acupuncture - At least once a week I go for acupuncture. I found a practitioner that creates a great space with music and candles. She teaches me about energy work and energy healing as well as doing my acupuncture sessions. Acupuncture is an absolute MUST for my well-being, healing, and physical comfort. 

 

7. Non-Toxic Environment and Non-Toxic Beauty - In the beginning I worked with a naturopath who used lab tests and homeopathic remedies to help detoxify my system. Now I use all non-toxic products to clean my home. Everything that touches my body, face, and scalp are always non-toxic, free of parabens, SLS and unwanted chemicals. (I'll do a page on beauty in upcoming months)

Jeannie, was wondering if you've had a Vit D test, and if so, what your levels are?

Jeannie said...

Yes. Testing my vitamin D level was one of the first things I asked my doctor to do. My very first Vitamin D 25 Hydroxy level test showed a moderately low level of vitamin D - about 43 ng/ml. Once I began walking in the sun with legs and arms exposed, and supplementing with 4000 IU of Carlson's liquid vitamin D daily, my levels went up to 85-90 and have stayed there. It is my understanding that if you are fighting cancer, you would like you vitamin D level to be 80 - 100. Thank you for your question. Please feel free to add more information about the topic!

Jeff said...

That's great. Your first test of 43 would place you in the top 5% of Americans. Being that most people are very deficient, testing in the low 20's, on average. Maintaining 80-90 is a great job on your part

Hi Jeannie,

I have read through a lot of the info in this post and I am very interested in speaking with you about my mother's current health. She is 67 and was diagnosed 4 months ago with Stage 3 Uterine Papillary Serous Carcinoma. The stats for survival for this particular set of uterine cancer is very bleak. She went through 4 rounds of chemo and it did nothing. She is getting worse and the cancer is spreading rapidly. Her organs are failing, she has blood clots, fluid in her lungs, fluid in her stomach and legs. It's horrible. I'm in a panick and feel we should do something different. If it were me in her situation, I would be doing more natural things in addition to the medicine. I eat carrots every day, because I love them, and just happened to look up the benefits recently and found that it has helped keep the body alkaline and prevented cancer cells from progressing. I have pushed my family to move toward a more natural approach, but my sister is a doctor and naturally follows what medicine would dictate. Please give me at least a couple things I could start with before it's too late. I was thinking of juicing carrots and beets and taking it to the hospital. I'm torn on what to do because she eats whatever they bring her in the hospital, and just trusts that they are doing the right thing. She's eating meat- chicken, they brought beef-stroganoff today and I refused to let her eat it. I don't know what to do. I'm up very late searching for some type of help. I hope that you receive this message and can provide some type of assistance. Thanks in advance for reading this.

Jeannie said...

I'm sorry to hear about your sweet mother. Fresh Juicing of Vegetables allows a body that has been worn down by chemo and cancer to absorb nutrients directly into the blood stream without having to go through the digestive system. That would be a wonderful way to supplement her diet. I love the Barley Max Mint as a tastey way to drink wheat grass (the young barley and alfalfa leaves). Wheat grass and fresh vegetable juices will alkalize the body. (When I was in the hospital, I had my family bring me carrot juices and wheat grass. I refused to eat artificially colored sugar filled jello, white flour products and drink their "juices" which were filled with sugar. The meat isn't as bad as those other things; it would be nice if it were free-range when she gets home.) Her digestive system may not be up to eating all raw, but she may enjoy steamed veggies. The Liposomal Can-Help and Liposomal Curcumin are some of the most effective supplement that are nano-particles which also pass right through the gut into the bloodstream. I'd start there, and spend as much time with your mom as you can. Engage her in the present moment with you, taking her mind off serious things. Don't expose her to news or violent programming. It would be wonderful if you could relax together and listen to one of the Guided Imagery CD's for Healing by Belleruth Naparstek. Those would be my suggestions. Love, Peace and Light to you both.

Jeannie said...

I had new blood tests done in June 2012 and my vitamin D level was 79. The lab report recommends that you do not exceed 80, although Dr. Mercola suggests 80-100 for cancer patients. I feel good with a level that hovers around 80 for myself. ~Jeannie

Edna T said...

Hi Jeannie,I am so glad you are doing so well. I have recently been diagnosed with Leiomyosarcoma and had a complete abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy.The pathology report came in stating that the tumor was a high grade spindel cell tumor with necrosis, confined to the uterus, but it also said "Focal Lymophvascular space invasion is seen. I am not sure exactly what that means, but it sounds like something (cancer cells) have invaded the Lymphovascular space. The surgon also did diaphragm and pelvic washings and said they came back negative. I understand that there is a very high reoccurrence rate for this type of cancer. Help! ???

Jeannie said...

Hi Edna,
First of all, take deep breaths - literally. My tumor was also high grade with necrosis. It's great that the diaphragm and pelvic washing came back negative! Now let's affirm that the body can do miraculous things and the mind has an incredible effect over the chemistry of the body. A stressed out mind can shut down your immune system, so the first thing I want you to do is go to my blog on Guided Imagery and get yourself some great CD's from Belleruth Naparstek. Second, you will need to make important decisions about whether you will subject your body to chemo/radiation therapy. I researched the results of these therapies and found they have little positive effect on ULMS, while at the same time they shut down the immune system. Whatever you choose to do, surround yourself with people who believe in your chosen method of treatment. Look into the Gerson Diet and all of their miraculous healings. Read books by cancer survivors who were told they would die but they defied the odds. (Refer to my book list for some great choices.) First- get your mind relaxed and positive. Second- create a non-toxic environment for yourself, inside and out. Think of it as pampering yourself. Learn to meditate! I wish you the very best. Write to me anytime. ~ Jeannie

Edna, make sure to join me on Facebook!

Edna T said...

Thank you so very much Jeannie. I can feel the love you send with your posts. My doctor does not recomend chemo/radiation therapy. I am listening to the guided imagery and the affermations you have recomended. I have been following a vegan low fat diet from "The Cancer Survivor's Guide" by Dr. Neal D Barnard and Jennifer K Reilly,RD. I Will Look into The Gerson Diet. I am working to Think positive and relax my mind. I still find myself feeling a little sad or sometimes a little spacey. I thank God for allowing me to find your Blog and I will join you on Facebook. God Bless:)

Hi Jeannie,

I am 37 years old. In 2009 I was diagnosed with ULMS. Before diagnosis, my biopsy came back negative. I continued to have the hysterectomy and later learned in my follow up that is was confined inside my uterine. Of course, I was highly concerned and my doctors encouraged me to undergo chem. I was in remission until Spring 2013 and I began chemo again. Ended unsuccessful chem 2 weeks ago and about to undergo a throcotomy to remove masses. Yikes! Well, I have been researching and trying to learn the best options for me. I want to begin from this point forward holistically natural therapies. I didn't understand it years ago, but now embrace it value. During my time on the treatment, I did drink green smoothies about 5 times as week. Eliminated red meats and I am still learning more natural ways to help my body to heal itself. Including Deep Meditation and Yoga. Do you have any other recommendations?
I would like this conversation to be confidential.
Thank you & God Bless

Dear Anonymous,
I needed to publish your comment so that I could reply to you since you didn't leave me any contact information. I'll delete it if you would like me to after you have a chance to read my reply, but perhaps others will benefit from my response as well. You have definitely been through a tremendous amount of stress - emotionally, mentally and physically! You are also very young to have cancer. Statistically, being young is on your side! First of all, embrace the surgery to remove your masses. You body will have less to deal with when that is over. Now, let’s look at the facts. Your current regime did not allow your immune system to prevent microscopic cancer cells from re-establishing themselves in your body. Chemo and radiation have their place in certain cancer treatments, but unfortunately they also negatively impact your immune system. So your new goal after surgery will be to do everything you can to build up your immune system again. I’ll try to lay out some simple suggestions. Find a very reputable naturopath who you can work with. It won’t be covered by insurance, but the naturopath can order different tests than your medical doctor can, tests that will give you vital information about the toxic burden in your body, how your body metabolizes estrogen, and your immune system’s functioning. This naturopath should be able to administer IV infusions of vitamin C and specialize in cancer/and or immune dysfunction. All of the people that I have read about who have survived a medical death sentence have undergone a total transformation in their lives. This transformation included a strict, raw vegan diet along with juicing vegetables (not just smoothies), particularly consuming freshly pressed carrot-apple juice around the clock. Emotional distress, particularly judgment, anger or resentment, must be removed so that the corresponding negative energy can be released from the body. This really isn’t as strange as it sounds – all religions teach about forgiveness and love. You should work with a therapist and go through the Cancer Self-Healing Guide I have shared on my blog. It may take a year, but it will be vital to your recovery. The mind-body connection is extremely important. Use guided imagery and meditation as often as you need throughout the day to rid your body of stress hormones. Stress activates hormones that literally suppress the immune system, so it’s just not an option for us in our lives. If there is any way possible, change your lifestyle so you do not have to work or shoulder stressful responsibilities for at least 2 years. This means if you take care of young children, get help! We have to set boundaries, and often we have the type of personality that loves to serve others – it’s who we are. But when we can’t do that anymore, we will find out that those who really love us will love us just the same, even though we are not able to do all of the “things” we used to do. Love does not have to be earned. There are many supplements out there, and they can also cost a small fortune. The ones that I know have been clinically proven to work on uterine leiomyosarcoma are melatonin and nano-liposomal curcumin (not capsules). I recommend IV Vitamin C, and after than nano-liposomal vitamin C. Make sure your doses are high enough to be effective. I take lots of supplements, but they were all based on testing by my naturopath. The lymphatic system removes cancer cells from the body, and it only works if you are engaged in some form of light-bouncy exercise, like walking or rebounding. Yoga won’t do it. I hope these suggestions have been helpful. Most of all, DON”T read negative information on the internet, like forums where others are struggling with multiple surgeries. Stick to reading stories of other survivors who have beat all odds. They will give your mind the belief it needs to have – deep down in your subconscious – that you have the ability to restore your immune system and make your body well. Love and prayers and healing energy to you! ~ Jeannie
