If you've watched any of my videos, you know that I feel that chronic stress and consuming soy in excess are what I believe caused my cancer. I've been a vegan for 8 years and healthy with exception of chronic stress which was at a level 10. You may also know that stress elevates your white blood cells or it can make them too low. For the last 4 years, despite doctors telling me I was extremely healthy I knew something was off, so at my yearly physicals I would ask for blood-work and each year they would tell me the only thing they were concerned about was how low my WBC's were. The reading always fell from 3.0 -3.7. After having it low for so long but never having any other symptoms doctors just felt it was normal for "me". I now know my body was telling me that cancer was brewing and just because I didn't fit into the textbook protocol didn't mean that something wasn't wrong. I knew it, and I told them so for many years! Honestly, I'm not sure they would have been able to do anything about it since reducing or eliminating stress would have been part of the solution which they did address. My readings were awesome! I now have a WBC count of 4.0 out of 3.8-10.5, glucose is 66 out off normal range of 65-99, yay low sugar!!! And Bicarbonate is 30 out of a range 19-30, yay for a high PH blood!!! To top it off my blood pressure was 118/68, she said it was that of a teenager!
I really don't think the modern medicine truly understands the gravity at which stress affects our health from our immune system, appetites and sleep to our hearts, brains, and emotions. It's an entire body problem. Well, all that is to say that since I've been working on eliminating stress, have eliminated refined sugar, soy, regular wheat, consistently exercise and focus on my faith in Jesus, everything...I mean everything, about me has changed. To the point where when I'm in the presence of strangers they tell me how beautiful my spirit is or how my presence makes them feel happy. Only God can do that! He gave me the knowledge I needed to follow my passions using my gifts to help others and has given me the knowledge to use foods from his earth to strengthen and heal my body. My strict diet (using Dr. Sebi's Nutritional Guide) and recipes is evolving and becoming a way of life and my relationship with God is stronger than I knew was possible. None of my progress would be happening without my amazing husband and supportive family. I now see how important support is in a person life! I'm so happy to be putting the bad from breast cancer behind me and taking all that I've gained with me!
Ok, now's a great time to share that I have some new stylish head wraps up in my Etsy shop. You can also purchase them from my Facebook store, which I think the shipping ends up being cheaper because of some deal the post office has with Shopify. Links are in the side bar.
I've also been able to squeeze in a little sewing time and I LOVE this peasant top made using McCall's 7325 View A! As usual, there's a review on Pattern Review and I've done a quick video for this one because I love it so much!
Here's the pics!
