I know it’s been a minute since I’ve blogged. Two reasons: 1. The alternative to chemotherapy to treat the cancer didn’t go as well as I expected. While I’m grateful to have been up, feeling good, and working (working is part of my benchmark: I had my first job at 6 years old), I expected to have made more ground on healing the cancer over the last 6 months. My last MRI showed that the cancer is the same. The good news is that the cancer didn’t get worse. Apparently, the bone marrow cancer I have is pretty aggressive. I did, however, follow the instructions I was given by the alternative practitioner. At least I should be back to a stage 1 instead of stage 2 because I was good and did what I was told. When life doesn’t work that way for me, it really frosts my cookies!
The treatment I’m working on now is simpler, a footbath I soak in for an hour a day. The challenge with it that it turns my feet purple. In the summer. In the South. We only wear closed shoes here for corporate meetings and cold weather, so I now sport purple toe nail polish. I feel so hip and young! This course of action lasts 6 months.
For this treatment, however, I’ve upped my dosage of CBD oil from hemp. I’ve read that it has cancer healing qualities. I don’t know if that’s true. What I do know is true is that using the CBD helps with the pain, mood, and energy that I need to feel I have a life worth living. As with so many other times in my life when I’ve had trouble, I have to do something.
What I’m finding out about the CBD oil for me is that it tastes like I’ve sucked on a rope, but the payoff is so great that I just deal with it. So far I’ve tried the paste, the oil, the extracts, chocolate (I did NOT have to ‘deal’ with the taste with the chocolate…hehehe!). I haven’t vaped, and I do have gummies and moisturizer to try next. Sigh. I want to try everything!
Oh, the second reason I’ve been away is that in addition to selling real estate, I’m putting together a CBD oil website. I really believe in CBD oil. Everyone I know who has used it has had a great experience. Since I love to see people happy and to feel empowered – CBD oil lets you have greater control over how you feel – it seemed like the next right thing for me to do to help others.
More soon. I won’t stay away as long next time. Thank you for your kind attention! Hugs!!
