Keeping Faith: The minute I was dx, diet, supplement and lifestyle changes became the first line of defense for me. I was determined that I was going to fight bc as naturally as possible with no chemo or rads if at all possible.
I was fortunate that my age 71, and my early stage bc and low onco score have made it possible for me not to need chemo, and I opted out of rads. I am going to try tamoxifen and see if that along with my diet and other changes will keep this monster out of my body. I exercise and take many supplements..iodine, mushrooms, minerals, Vit B, C,D, CoQ10, glutathione, alpha litrophic acid, and a prescription drug called Naltrexone which boosts the immune system to attack cancer cells, similar to the way the new cancer vaccines are going to work. I also follow an anti cancer diet of fruits, veggies, lean protein and no gluten or sugar. Not easy, but doable. The key is to keep your body in an alkaline state so that cancer cells do not thrive. They grow well in an acidic environment, but not an alkaline one. You can check this with test strips that you buy in the health food store.
The results have been awesome. I took a test to see how my body absorbed and utilized antioxidants the other day (same test featured on Dr. Oz show) and I scored 54,000 points. Dr. Oz scored 75,000. Still room for improvement, but was pleased that I am one of the few that scored in the blue range which is the highest and best category. I've lost 14 pounds and my waist size is now down to below 1/2 of my height! I was successful with this nutrition program in eliminating the fat from around my middle...something dieting has never been able to do for me. Estrogen is stored best in the fat cells around the middle so the less of them you have the better.
All the best to you in your quest for good health. If I can answer any questions for you, please don't hesitate to ask or PM me. Sending hugs and positive energy!
