differently to have prevented your heart attack, and there is nothing you personally can do now to keep from having another one????? I'm thinking you might have been out the door looking for a new doctor with more information on things you can/could do have done. Well, generally, there are things that you did in your daily living that allowed cancer to get that new blood supply, that's the one that without it, cancer can't grow big enough to harm you, and be a pain in your proverbial butt. The good news is, there are things that you did that allowed your cancer to grow big enough to mess up your happy life, even though you don't know what they were right now. But, the great news is, there are things you can do today and tomorrow and the day after to make it really hard for cancer to keep growing in your body. So yippie!
A huge thing is cut out all artificial sweetners, you can do this today. Good. That was sorta easy, right?
Exercise, you don't have to get crazy about it, just do some if you weren't, and more if you were. Alright.
This one is a really hard one--reduce stress. What, are you crazy, you ask. Well, the jury is still out on that one, but here's the things about stress. Stress and that adrenaline rush it inspires are put there to make our bodies ready for the WORST. Guess what folks, the worst is already here, cancer. What happens when you are under stress is your really mostly smart body takes away the focus from daily repair and disease fighting, like the immune system fighting off those pesky cancer cells and puts all its energy into getting ready to fight some outside enemy. So--stops fighting cancer. When I put the stress theory together I got the strength to tell my friends and family that, while I truly loved them, I just was off things that caused me stress til I got this cancer thing under control. Took a few times of mentioning the cancer/stress relationship but they eventully got it and good news, still love me.
I understand that there is all the typical stress of daily life, if you can't avoid much of it, that stuff in the form of other people telling you their problems, that's the stuff in the above paragraph, but rushing to work and all that, well you just may have to do that, so, here's the good news about that, simply take a minute or two to breathe really slowly and deeply. There, you just convinced your body that the enemy is gone and your immune system can start eating those cancer cells again.
Please read the post on some things you can right now for some other helpful hints on long-term survival along with whatever other options you are doing.
So, here's the point I am trying to make: if after all the surgery and chemo/radiation you go thru--if you continue to do the things you did that allowed cancer to gain a foothold in the first place--what do you think the results will be when all the chemo/radiation is over and you back to your old life--that one that let you get cancer in the first place. I don't know about you, but I thought I might just get some form or cancer or see the recurrence of this one. Let's stack the odds against cancer coming back. Let's all change some things. You be in charge. You guide your future with your present actions.
I love you all
Well, as I used to say,
I'm just sayin'
Health and happiness to us all,
