2 WEEKS POST-MASTECTOMY - GOING OUT WITH FRIENDS
2 weeks post-mastectomy, Glenn and I are going out with friends for dinner. I have extreme cabin fever by now!
I drove my car for the first time yesterday - it was a little sore in my pectoral muscles but otherwise fine. I was very careful not to strain my pec muscles in anyway as they can go into a spasm around the tissue expander, and while this may not be painful, it can make the one breast appear high than the other.
I am still feeling slight fatigue in the afternoons and am trying to rest where I can.
I still walk around the block every morning and plan to try gym tomorrow - non-arm/chest gym. I think the cardiovascular action would do me good right now. I am missing working up a sweat.
The cancer theory I am still trying on this week is that cancer is caused by fungal overgrowth as the body is in a state of acidosis and fermentaion. Cancer thrives in an acidic and anaerobic environment. I am still eating an diet very similar to an anti-candida diet: 90-95% raw, low GI fruits, only rice and products etc. Diet below:
Foods, drinks, supplements and medicines to EXCLUDE COMPLETELY for 3-12 months:
all grains, flours and cereals (except rice, millet, amaranth and chia), sushi rice (contains sugar and vinegar), all dairy (except plain yogurt, Irish butter and ghee), colostrum, tissue salts, sugar, honey, molasses, maple/corn syrup, palm sugar, sweets, chocolates, carob, halva, fructose, xylitol (except stevia), fresh sweet fruits: mango, banana, grapes, watermelon, melon and dried fruits, fruit juice (except fresh diluted apple and orange juice), vinegar (except fresh lemon juice), all soy products (soy milk, miso, tofu, tamari, soy sauce), all carbonated drinks, all energy drinks, soda and sparkling water, coffee, tea, kombucha tea, yeast containing products, bovril, marmite, Oxo spread, baking powder, commercial curry powder, all alcohol, all tinctures, Sweden bitters, vitamin B complex, Brewer’s yeast, Bio-Strath, StaminoGro, psyllium husk, Herbal Fiberblend, cashews, peanuts, pistachios, olives in brine, chickpeas, hummus, mushrooms, potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn products (mielies, pap, samp, polenta, popcorn, corn thins), sorghum, sago, tapioca, cassava plant, sauerkraut, mayonnaise, tomato sauce, Worcester sauce, pickles, pickled ginger, chutney, achaar, salad dressings, sauces, antibiotics, cortisone, antacids, H2 blockers, proton pump inhibitors, oral contraceptives, Mirena, HRT, progesterone, heparin, chemo- and radiotherapy, etc.
Foods, drinks and supplements to INCLUDE for 3-12 months:
beef, lamb, pork, fish, caviar, shellfish, snails, chicken, turkey, duck, goose, ostrich, crocodile, eggs, almonds, walnuts, pecans, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pine nuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, tahini, poppy seeds, flax seed, dried beans, lentils, peas, kidney beans hummus, plain yogurt, kefir, lassi, coconut, coconut milk, almond milk, rice milk, avocado, Irish butter, ghee, olive oil, sesame oil, grape seed oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, coconut butter, pumpkin seed oil, flax oil, hemp oil, evening primrose oil, pine nut oil, apricot kernel oil, apple, pineapple, kiwi, plums, paw paw, pears, peaches, oranges, naartjies, berries, tomatoes, sun dried olives, olive tapenade, fresh diluted apple and orange juice, all salads and vegetables, brown/wild/Basmati/white rice, rice cakes, puffed rice, rice pasta, millet, amaranth, chia, fresh lemon juice, garlic, onion, celery, parsley, basil, basil pesto, rocket, dill, fennel, cumin, cardamom, coriander, fresh and dried ginger, horseradish, chilies, pure herbal curries, turmeric, cinnamon, black pepper, Himalayan salt, stevia, home made salad dressing (olive oil, garlic, fresh lemon juice and herbs), home made mayonnaise (egg yolk, fresh lemon juice and olive oil), wasabi, organic cocoa powder, herbal teas, etc.
N.B. Take bicarbonate of soda – 1 teaspoon in a glass of water twice a day for 3 months and/or magnesium peroxide (Colon-fix) – ½ teaspoon in a glass of water twice a day for 3 months. These two supplements alkalize and oxygenate the body. The medium they create is not conducive for a fungal overgrowth. Do not mix them together. Take them 15 min apart. Anti – fungal supplements: non – acidic vitamin C, Enzimmune, antioxidants, EXO, UMI, carotenoids, caprylic acid, warburgia, African potato, Secomet, Citricidal Plus, Kolorex tea, Pau D’Arco, olive leaf, propolis, Cool Blue, AV/AT, RV 162 and probiotics (Super 8 probiotic, Probiflora 9, Bio – Rem ferment, etc.) speed up the healing process.
Avoid any antibiotics and cortisone during the treatment program.
Eat a lot of avocados, garlic, onion, leaks, chives, horseradish, radish, ginger, basil, oregano, thyme, etc. They suppress the fungal overgrowth. Chew mastic gum daily.
Drink 2-3 liters of purified water a day.
Regular use of a Rife resonator or zapper destroys the fungus.
You will go through a detox in the first 2 weeks as the fungus dies. Cravings might increase for a while. Persevere with the program. Select the correct foods when eating out. The improvement will start after 2 weeks. Follow the diet minimum for 3 - 6 months.
