I have just completed the 4 year check up after my adventure with breast cancer, and I passed with flying colors!    

If you aren't familiar with my experience, the short story is that I had a fast-growing tumor which was surgically removed with a lumpectomy and lymph node removal.  I also had radiation and chemotherapy.  I'll keep this part of my story short because it is not a period of time that needs to be dwelt upon.  The best part of the story is the healing and my return back into life, light and hope.

This motivated me to get my secretor test done.  Although I had been eating somewhat half-heartedly for my blood type for 2 or 3 years, I was eating as if I was a secretor.  And I was also being quite lenient with my interpretation of how many avoids I was willing to eat!    

There is nothing like being face to face with a condition that could quickly end your life, to put ones life in perspective.  I let go of avoids on the day that I received my secretor results, and have never looked back.  Except for that rare time when I am eating food that has been cooked by someone else, and I get avoids without knowing it, I have not eaten avoids in 4 years.  

My diet is at least 50% beneficials and sometimes more.  I accepted the fact that I am responsible for living or dying, and the choice was clear to me!    It has been like having another part-time job, as I shop, carefully prepare meals, eat with a calm and conscious attitude and clean my kitchen.  It has become a sort of spiritual practice, which has brought a real serenity into my home.  I have come to love my body very much, and respect the healing power that it has.  I have been giving my all to supporting this body which is such a devoted friend and helper to me!  

The result of my dietary and lifestyle changes is that I now weigh 20 pounds less.  My skin is smooth and radiant.  Chronic irritable bowel conditions are 90% gone.  My sleep is so much better, I actually feel rested when I wake up, and have begun to remember my dreams again.  My depression is completely gone.  After living with depression for most of my life, I can't even remember the last time I felt "down".  My cholesterol has been gradually moving into the healthy range with an exceptional ratio balance, and this is while eating ghee, lamb, full-fat goat yogurt and eggs!  

The biggest challenge for recovering from my illness is my fatigue.  I have continued to struggle with this issue, and by paying attention to the fatigue protocol, I am beginning to see progress.  I am also going to bed earlier, keeping my sleeping area dark, drinking more water, jumping on my Rebounder and breathing well.  And I have started the process of having the rest of my mercury fillings safely removed.

I'm quite thrilled, and hope you'll send your smiles my way also.  I wish you all great and abundant health and radiant well-being!!  




Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful testimonial.  I was very moved at how you now look at food, and that taking care of your body has become a spiritual experience.

It's a good thing, when we can become mindful of what we put in our bodies.

Victoria, that is such wonderful news to read your post..

You came a long way.. and you did it by yourself into yourself, which is a major spiritual act..

It is such a reassurance to find that missing link. BTD was for me the last piece that completed my health-puzzle..
It made such sense... I went on BTD and never looked back again.

We all have our stories to tell..  

Makes me grateful and privileged to be part of the BTD group worldwide..

I am soo happy for your recovery and send you all the smilies you need...

Thank you all for your kind words and <<smiles>> !  To alll who are dealing with serious diseases, I encourage you to smile and take a deep breath, and know that your health can change for the better.  Consistency in dietary and lifestyle change is so important, and don't be discouraged by temporary setbacks.  Our attitudes lead the way for our healing;  optimism opens the doorway to the possibility for being well, and pessimism limits how much joy and wellness that we can experience.

I forgot to mention in my post that during treatment and afterwards for a year or so, I closely followed the super-beneficials listed in the Cancer book, and I followed the supplement protocol very persistently.

Im glad to hear youre a breast cancer survivor.

I have fibrous breasts and have had a couple of cysts drained.  I get tired of always having to go back and get re-checked.  I didnt go to my last appointment because I dont trust my gyno.  I should find a new one since my aunt died of breast cancer at age 54 and Im 55.  It is encouraging to know that my B nonnie diet can help if it ever comes to that.
