I really need some encouragement to stick with this. I finished chemo and radiation in May. Chemo put me into menopause instantly and the hot flashes are terrible, I can only sleep 2 hours at a time. I started taking effexor which eliminated the hot flashes. Then I started with ringing in my ear which is driving my crazy. I gave up effexor because it has that side effect.
Now I have hot flashes and ringing in my ear and I have been on the diet for a week been to 4 yoga classes as well as walking. So far I feel like c**p and I have gained a pound.

you need to work on your stress lowering for now.....calm and soothing, pamper yourself....
hitting the gym will only add up the cortisol in your body......don t!

I am sorry for what you are going through.  I went through the exact same thing in 2007.  This diet is going to be great for your recovery, I only wish I knew about it back then.  Your body will go through a lot of changes in the next few years.  Yes...years.  It will continually get better but there will be times you will wonder.  The hot flashes and stuff will subside in a few months and don't be surprised if after a year or two you are out of menopause (depending on your age).  I tried Effexor and it did crazy things to me too.  

Your body is going through major changes and healing.  Please try to be patient.  The weight will come and go and come and go again.  My onco told me it can take up to 2 years to get the chemo out of your body and regulate your weight.  For me it was nearly 3...I'm slow.

Look into Detoxical from NAP and Aromastat.  Get plenty of rest.  If Prednisone was part of your protocol...Cortiguard too.  I am not a doc but I know how these things helped reset my body.  Also, look into Methlyl B-12 from NAP to take at night and Tranquility Base.  After chemo and radiation I could not sleep at all and it wasn't until I started this diet/lifestyle and these supps that I could sleep through the night.

People think that once you are done treatment you should be feeling better and "be over it".  I'm here to tell you that this is the hard part.  Not being in treatment and feeling like crud can bring one down.  This is a kind community.  There are others here that have been through the same.  Your body will heal.  It may be different but it will heal and perhaps a better way of life will be gained.  Be patient...go for the journey if you can.  Do light yoga for lengthening and relaxation and keep your walks pleasant and light too.

Please keep us posted.  We are here to support you.

Thank you for saying that. Everyone I see that knows by PET scan was negative are so happy for me and expect that I am feeling better. So I walk around saying "I'm great", when actually going through chemo was easier than how I feel now.
Good to know it could take awhile.

I soooooooo know what you mean.  For me, people kept saying how brave I was and tough I was during treatment.  If they knew the truth, the brave and toughness didn't factor in until the year or two after.  Sometimes I even felt angry because everyone was so in celebration mode because of negative PETs and I was left feeling exhausted, fat and like I had an entire life to rebuild.

It ablsolutely does get better.  If I could give any advice it would be don't do what I did and do not add responsibility as you feel better.  DO NOT!  Every time I had a little more energy I would take on more of my "old life" and more work.  If you have extra energy do not use it, let it pile up until you are bouncing off the walls wanting to do stuff.  Remember all those well meaning folk that said "if there's anything I can do"...well, call them now.  Ask for help now.  Now is when you need it.  I mean it...don't add anything to your life until you feel like you are bursting with energy.  You will heal much faster this way.  Again...only my opinion but it's worth a thought.

Hi welcome to the forum!

I recommend a lot of niacin to get rid of that radiation or other cancer could pop up elsewhere in the body.

Maybe being more explanatory will be a more honest approach...  I know it is hard to explain to someone that you feel poopy when you look good and the tests are all positive.  It is hard to perform, sometimes even basic body functions, every day when you feel like the battery is dead, however...

I'm an A. You would never believe from where I came to where I am now. I am so thankful that I am stubborn and did not listen to doctors. Happy that I discovered natural healing.

MNMom - Once I cut out meat I dropped 35 pounds in a month in a half. It was the easiest weight loss I've ever had. And I haven't gained any of it back. I still have more to lose but its coming off slowly as I continue to follow my GTD.


O positive baby boy.

Hey everyone! I just started this diet, or should I say, this new way of eating, just yesterday. I am an A Rh- and even in the two days of not eating meat and things i'm too avoid, I can tell the difference. I am hoping to really get into this an continue for the rest of my life. I'm 46 right now. I hope you all can answer some questions if i have them. I'm so new at the veggie lifestyle, I know I'll have a ton of questions!

Hi Everyone I'm new here. I was wondering how to mark this thread so that I can come back to it later? Is there a way to do that?

Also, what kind of bread/starch do you use for sandwiches, toast, etc?

Welcome!  I don't know the answer to your first question and will look forward to finding out... I'm too new, too!  But I will tell you that I make a 'skillet bread' that is quick and delicious.  I've even memorized it and you can, too.  The end result is a English type muffin that is great for sandwiches and toast.

Skillet Bread

1.  2 1/4 c. any compatible flour  (Note:  If you have to use gluten free flour, add 1 3/4 t. Xanthum gum.  If using rice flour, I recommend you combine with another flour.  I use sorghum mostly.  If you can use spelt you don't have to use xanthum gum.
2.  1 t. seseme, fennel, or caraway seeds crushed (optional)
3.  1 t. each of salt and baking soda
4.  2 T. compatible sweetner (I use honey)
5.  1 cup compatible milk (I use almond)

Stir 1-4 until mixed evenly.  Make hole in center and add sweetner.  Take fork and stir to distribute around.  Add milk and stir until combined.

Now you can get out your rolling pin and extra flour, roll and/or pat it until it's about 1/2-1 in. thick; then cut into 8 pieces (like a pie).  OR you can simply add a little more milk and drop a large tablespoon onto a hot iron skillet like I do and save yourself the trouble of all that extra time and mess.  The end result is the same as far as I can tell.  I then pat the large tablespoon of dough down and shape it the way I want and the size I want.

2 - 3 min. per side and they're done!  Just lift out with a spatula and stand them on their end, putting the spatula on the top and gently working it down into the bread.  It should split easily... just like an English muffin.

Eat fresh that day and freeze the rest.  Remove as needed and pop into the toaster to unthaw.

Try it.  You'll like it, I think.
