Just a quick post to let everyone know that I got my chemo again today! This is the fourth week in a row that I’ve managed to keep my white blood count up high enough to get chemo using natural methods instead of pharmaceuticals! Yay!!! And this week my count rose again – another 100 – to 2,400. So even though the chemo is definitely wearing me down in other ways, it can’t beat all the things I’m doing to keep my immune system strong.
Just another reminder that the standard treatment is not always the best one. It is important to thoughtfully and intelligently consider ALL options and choose what feels right. The answers are inside each and every one of us.
For me, taking a bunch of “meds” to tackle every issue never felt right. In choosing other “natural” options I have shown that the answers do not always lie with a pill. Of course for many people taking a pill (or two or three or four) is much simpler than exercising every day, eating healthy, working through emotional issues, and actively pursing other treatment options. I get it. But for me, natural healing along with some western medicine is the way to go.
And obviously it’s working. So I’m just gonna keep doing what I’m doing. Two more weeks of chemo to go… Then it’s scan time and we’ll get to see the fruits of all this labour.
Peace. – T
