As many of you know, I was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer (Metastatic breast cancer) in August 2020.
I have been doing very well in most respects. My tumours are all shrinking and my tumour markers have gone from 110 to 11(being consistently between 13-11 for the past year now). This is an indicator that my cancer is much reduce and not active.
Along with the oncology treatments, I have been tirelessly researching how to support my body to stay healthy. I am blessed to be in the position of previously being a nurse and now a nutritional therapist, naturopath and herbalist. This has meant that I have been able to manage many symptoms and side effects with nutrition, supplements and herbs and I have been able to adapt my regimes to where I am at any moment.
Some of the effects that can crop up during treatments are:
I have been able to reduce these side effects with a variety of herbs and supplements over the last year and a half, adjusting them as I’ve needed. I still get very tired after treatments and my back has been a huge concern for me but we are getting there.
My main supplement and herb regime have included:
I recently had a batch of blood tests and was told I have a very healthy body for someone with my diagnosis.
Keep the good wishes, prayers and energy coming and I’ll keep you updated on where I am and what I’m doing.
