For anyone that has been following my articles you will know that I was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer, otherwise known as metastatic breast cancer, it was in my breast, lungs, liver, bones and lymph. For those that are reading my article for the first time this is my latest update on my journey.
So a quick catch up, I was:
I have been on the new tablets now for about 3 weeks and can feel the improvement already in my quality. The next few months will see if I am doing as well on this treatment as I was before.
My own natural medicine box includes:
It’s important to try to reduce stress when going through cancer (Oh the irony) but there are ways I do, I have a campervan I bought last summer (watch out for the photos on Instagram), I spend time with people who lower my stress instead of raise it, I go for counselling and reflexology and reiki when I can. One of my home relaxation techniques is my daily Epsom salt bath which has the added bonus of relaxing my tense muscles and strengthening my bones.
The truth is everyone who is going through cancer will approach it in their own way, this is mine, this is how I find my strength, in knowledge, in understanding this disease and how I can conquer it in my own way. That is what takes the fear out of that word that brings such fear to so many “CANCER”.
