PERSONAL PLEA! I NEED YOUR HELP!

I am asking all of you for your help. Melissa, my soul sister, best friend and roommate was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer this past week. She is only 43 years old.

Though her treatment decisions are her own, she has asked me to reach out to everyone for any information about natural treatments that can provide relief from treatment side effects (chemo), have evidence of cancer cell reduction, reduction of anxiety, etc. Whether your suggestions are traditional, radical or even "illegal" i.e. cannabis oil ..are irrelevant. Anything that can not be harmful will be helpful :) I am devoting most of my time to researching these potential treatments, but I don't want to miss anything. Anyone who has dealt with cancer, please share what you have learned. The comment section is wide open and will be checked every single day.

She currently practices yoga and meditation. I am an excellent source of positive energy :D ..and will provide her with as much as I can muster. We both feel that directed positive energy has amazing qualities and ask you all to direct some her way.

Thank you for taking the time to let me share my personal plea. Namaste~

  1. Rick Simpson Oil is very beneficial. With chemo, I suggest watching electrolytes, feelings of weakness, try a Gatorade or organic electrolyte mix and see if that helps. Having a good friend is a big help too, A good dose of "this too shall pass" helps to get past the onslaught of change and confusion, she will one day find her way back to "normalcy".

  2. Hi Slaade,here Luxemburg, I talked already with you a few weeks ago about wheatgrass, its very helpfull for your roommate. Best way is to take it every morning before eating on a empty stomach,she may use the powder,3gram daily morning. She can mix it with water or juice.
    I use it for other problems since beginning of the month september and I can tell you it really works!!! Much love to you.

    1. Hello Luxey! :) Since our previous exchange, I included wheat grass in my spring gardening! We put (what the kitty cat doesn't snatch lol) in the juicer and have a "shot" with breakfast. Thank you for reminding me about it's wonderful qualities :D

  3. Again Lux here, just to say that I try to incorporate in my meals as much as possible turmeric-garlic and ognions,they are supperfood! Here after some of my research from 2 years ago :
    Garlic does more than keep vampires away—the popular herb also contains allium compounds that enhance the activity of immune system cells designed to fight cancer. These compounds, called dialyl sultides, may block carcinogens from getting into cells and also slow the development of tumors. People who regularly eat raw or cooked garlic may enjoy about half the risk of stomach cancer and two-thirds the risk of colorectal cancer when compared with people who eat little or no garlic, according to a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. A number of subsequent studies in both the laboratory and in animals have also indicated that garlic components have cancer-fighting properties. In a new study (February 2012) from China, researchers found evidence that a compound derived from garlic called S-allylcysteine showed some anticancer effects against human prostate cancer cells in the laboratory. Garlic is a versatile herb that can easily be incorporated into a cancer fighting diet.

    Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is considered an anticancer food and spice because it possesses a variety of important cancer fighting properties. In the January 2012 issue of Frontiers of Bioscience, for example, the authors remarked that curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, “appears to involve a blend of anti-carcinogenic, pro-apoptotic, anti-angiogenic, anti-metastatic, immunomodulatory and antioxidant activities.” In other words, curcumin seems to fight cancer from multiple fronts. Some of those fronts have been demonstrated in studies like one published in 2010, in which the investigators evaluated the benefits of turmeric and found that it inhibited the growth of both human and animal prostate cancer cell lines. A number of studies show that curcumin may prove to a powerful anticancer food against colon cancer, and there are also data suggesting that curcumin used along with chemotherapy is “a superior strategy for treatment of gastrointestinal cancer,” according to a 2009 report in Nutrition and Cancer. According to Dr. Andrew Weil, founder and director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, unless you have inflammatory bowel disease, the best way to reap the benefits of turmeric is by adding it to your diet.

    And in summer I eat as much as I can raspberrys, I grow them in my garden, that's superfruit!

    Raspberries are an excellent source of antioxidants and phytonutrients called anthocyanins, which may protect against cancer. In a study published in Cancer Research, rats given a diet containing 5% to 10% black raspberries had a 43% to 62% decrease in the number of esophageal tumors. In subsequent studies, black raspberry extracts inhibited the growth of colon cancer cells and also demonstrated activity against esophageal cancer in rats. In a recent Ohio State University study, black raspberry powder was given to patients who had colorectal cancer. The investigators found evidence that black raspberries had a positive impact on biomarkers of colorectal cancer, enough for them to conclude that additional studies of black raspberries “for the prevention of colorectal cancer in humans now appear warranted.” Raspberries may be an important part of a cancer prevention diet.

    1. Thank you again Luxey :) Garlic is used heavily in this household. Not great for the breath *grin* but oh-so-tasty and health boosting. I was unaware of the beneficial qualities of Turmeric and will add it to my list. Raspberries are a staple, as we add them to plain yogurt for snacking. Sister has alot of stress issues, even pre-cancer, and that seems to be the huge issue at the moment. Any suggestions (pharmaceuticals aside)???

  4. sexual healing - raise energy to breast and massage area affected : )))

    always best for me: to find true 'source' of the problem, start from the beginning, when first pain started, and work from there

    I have a close friend who beat spinal cancer last year, I BELIEVE IN YOU!!! wishing you the very best

    basic symbolism: breast gives life to newborn - question - are you giving enough life to yourself???

    Cancer energetically, occurs when there are strong feelings of abandonment, betrayal and fear of being alone. It is the root cause of cancer. Cancer has been called the disease of the nice people because they tend to hold in their emotions rather than creating conflict. People who tend to have a higher predisposition to cancer seem to have patterns of behavior which encourage them to overextend themselves both mentally and emotionally for others, and who tend to put emotional needs of other people before their own.

    BREAST (left):Feeling unloved, refusal to nourish oneself. Putting everyone else first.
    AFFIRMATION: I am loved and nourished by all around me

    BREAST (right): Over protection, over bearing, difficulty in giving love.
    AFFIRMATION:I embrace and trust life knowing that I am safe and loved. I choose to love and be loved.

    once again, best of love to you and yours, hope this helps!!!

    2. Thank you for the reply and wisdom. So much truth. Melissa is the kindest, most giving person I have ever known, ALWAYS putting others before herself. Even before her diagnosis, I suggested she read "Dying to be me"~Anita Moorjani. She took my advice and enjoyed the book but now is re-reading as she "gets it" more now. She has always been one to keep her feelings within...in part because of her strict Christian upbringing and also because she is a Scorpio..and that's just what they do.
      As for diet, we are organic eaters, have been for a few years. We have weaned ourselves from beef and pork and now only eat poultry and fish. I grow most of my own veggies and will be sharing some gardening advice on the blog very soon.
      Thank you again and may blessings be with you!
