I have tried this before, but wanted to start a thread for us natural girls to build our friendships, share our thoughts and the natural things we are doing. there is a thread called bottle of tamoxifen, that I enjoyed the friendships of, but now that I am off the tamoxi-train and using alternatives, it would be nice to have a support group of women who encourage each other with alternative, complementary and holistic treatment.

Here's to friendship and support.

I had cut out all sugar.  But, wanted to ask if organic honey is okay or am I better off staying off all sugar.  The reason I ask is I was able to quench my chocolate craving tonight by mixing 2 heaping teaspoons of dark cocoa with almond milk and a little organic honey.  If this is a bad idea, I won't do it again.  I was just hoping, hoping, hoping you guys would say that it is a GREAT idea.  Can't blame a girl for hoping!

Luna - that sounds YUMMY! Actually honey is a good substitute for sugar because it is low glycymic. My doc told me to use either stevia or honey (raw is best) as a sweetner.

My vote is for Agave nector for sweetening, I like it better than honey, and I love honey :)

Luna-You are so right that if we had known all this stuff 30 years ago, we would have never gotten cancer. Sadly, I must admit that  I probably would not have listened. All my grandmothers lived to a ripe old age. My grandmother is still alive. None of them had cancer, so I thought I was impervious. But I have come to learn the whys for my cancer, and I am committed to spread the word to healthy people so they do not end up here. That is why I am going to do this prevention convention. Now that my students are gone, I am able to work on it. I hope we can have them all over the country and get others to be more proactive in their health.

As for the honey-I think it is just fine in moderation. Honey has antioxidant powers, and that mixture of cocoa powder and rice drink sounds healthy. Cocoa is also antioxidant. I have not been able to give up my choc habit, and I think I am going to try your recipe. My problem with most chocolate is the soy lecitin junk in it. Your recipe may make it so I can feel better about chocolate. Everything in moderation of course.

Deni-I loved that website. I have emailed Dr Moss to see if I can get him to come and speak to us. Keep your fingers crossed. If anyone has other suggestions for speakers, let me know. I want to get my compounding Pharmacist to come, my hormone doc, my thermographer and have yoga classes. If Lisa ever shows up again, maybe she can come and teach us some Zumba. It will be a fun and educational weekend. I also have someone from a culinary school in Chicago who will cook for us! My next goal is to find good hotel rates. I do not want to charge anyone to come and I hope to make it as affordable as possible. I hope you will all come and bring your healthy friends so we can spread the word.

Good morning ladies Smile.

Vivre, All of this sounds sooo exciting and educational. I cannot wait until everything comes together and attend this wonderful convention Smile. Thank you so much for doing this. If there is anything that I can do or help with, please PM me and let me know. As far as getting in touch with MD's, speakers on cancer, Natural Doc's, etc. I will speak with my Primary Doc (She is all for supplements, diet prevention, etc) and see if she may be available when all takes place. Thanks again.

Jenny.

There aren't many places where people celebrate people they care about being de-ported, but this is certainly one!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!

Until the time when someone comes up with a definitive "cure", we each have to cobble together what we believe will be the most effective treatment that we can live with, not merely survive.
