Long Term Survivor of Leiomyosarcoma
I have always told people that I am recovering from cancer, not that I have cancer. I began to say this right from the start. Your brain listens to everything that you say, so that's why you need to say that you are recovering. It's more than just the things you speak out loud, although it is very important to speak only positive things about your recovery. But it's deep down in your heart and soul that needs to be convinced that your are going to be okay. That's why you need to flood your mind with the right guided imagery as part of the mind-body component of this healing program.
Are you recently diagnosed? Let people take care of you now - don't push yourself to do anything whatsoever. Don't spend time doing anything that drains you, period! When you begin to feel a little better, don't go out and spend your energy. Save it and just keep relaxing. That way your body can use the unspent energy towards healing you. Save your energy to do the healing routines that are to become your new way of living.
Your goal is never to feel exhausted. Whatever it takes. The only time you need to spend some energy is when you are outside walking each day in order to get your lymph fluid moving to remove the toxins from your body. Or when you are preparing raw, organic foods and juices.
When you are sleeping, the immune system is activated. The supplement melatonin has been clinically proven to have an anticancer effect against leiomyosarcoma in particular. I take 20mg before bedtime and sleep 10 hours per night. If you can't sleep that long, have a guided imagery CD by your bedside and listen to it when you wake up (with earphones if you are not alone) but remain still and quiet to prolong your relaxation.
The components of the anti-cancer program include mind-body work (such as guided imagery, meditation, reading stories about others who have overcome incurable diseases, and stating intentions and affirmations to be well), a detoxification program (usually designed by a Naturopath after they do some testing), avoiding environmental toxins, eating a mostly raw, organic, vegan diet, drinking freshly pressed carrot-apple juice and green smoothies and/or wheat grass, fresh air, sunshine, mild exercise, NO STRESS OR NEGATIVITY, some form of emotional clearing/healing (with a therapist, energy worker, acupuncturist, or self-healing guide), and supplements that have been shown to stop cancer from spreading (Liposomal or I-V Vitamin C treatments, Liposomal Curcumin, Pancreatic Enzymes, Fish Oil, Vitamin D, Silica, Vitamin E, Melatonin, Iodine, Glutathione, and Chlorella are some examples) and other supplements designed to change the way you metabolize estrogen - breaking it down in a non-toxic way that does not stimulate tumors (MK-7, DIM, and Lipotropic Factors).
Some supplements require blood tests to monitor your levels to make sure you reach the optimal level but don't overdose. I work with my naturopath and my medical doctor to accomplish this.
The first place for you to start is by turning off stress hormones (adrenaline and cortisol) because they suppress your immune system, shutting it down so it can't work to fight the cancer. So turn of your favorite laugh-out-loud movies, or music that evokes happy, care-free memories, and read through my blog. I'll show you ways to improve your well-being and connect with healing power you have within you.
