Dear L,

It’s hard to believe that it’s been another 2 1/2 months since I last wrote. Lots has happened since then, including moving house! Our previous landlady got greedy and wanted more rent money, then, when she realized we were not willing to pay more than before and we would therefore be moving, she begged us to stay at the same price, long contract, blah, blah, blah. But we’d already found a better place, so we moved. The new place is bigger and better for the same price. So, that’s done now, but there are still things to do to get fully set up, so we’ve been busy.

How are you and yours? We’re all fine. Of course the cancer is still a concern and affects my meals most of all, (more…)

In case you didn’t catch the article: Should We All Be Vegetarians? (Excerpt below) please check it out. It was first posted as a cover story in the July 7th edition of Time Magazine in 2002 and is well worth reading.

Vegetarianism has many followers and appeals to people for a variety of reasons. The economical benefits are being discovered by more and more people struggling to make ends meet, while scientific studies are accumulating confirming the contribution of a meatless diet to vibrant health.

There is, of course, a learning curve to making the switch from an animal protein-heavy diet to one where the focus is squarely on vegetables and whole grains. Many people think they don’t even like vegetables all that much, so how could they enjoy a diet fully based on them as the main ingredients? (more…)

In “The Budwig Cancer Diet–What it Does“, you can read about Dr. Johanna Budwig’s diet for healing someone with cancer. It leans heavily on a mixture of flaxseed oil and quark (or cottage cheese). I’ve posted some information about it in the section “Interesting health articles from others” along with Dr. David Sevan-Schreiber’s very good article called “We can stop the cancer epidemic.”

Please take some time to read these articles, especially the latter, which is also shorter and easier reading.  Thanks! Have a great day!

Back to the details of my personal method and attack plan for fighting breast cancer:

In hindsight, I can see the progress I made in the first weeks after diagnosis a little more objectively, but at the time, I was often really floundering around. I thank God for the many years I spent reading His Word and doing my best to obey it, because that is what has given me faith to trust Him even in my confusion. My letters to my parents sound quite upbeat, which was how I felt when writing them, but when I wrote to my friend, L., more of my frustrations were exposed. Cancer has that weird effect on people—it makes you want to panic. My case wasn’t even so advanced, for which I was and am thankful, but it is still that “c-word”. You want to somehow run away from it, but you can’t. (more…)

Dear L,

Thanks for keeping in touch. I realize I’m actually “in remission” not exactly as I had put it, “they got all the cancer”. I’m beginning to recognize the difference. I must still be diligent to make the conditions in my body a very hostile environment for cancer, as there aren’t any tests that tell if and how many stray cancer cells are roaming around in my body, hoping for the right conditions to be able to grow again. Is that about right? So, I need to continue the balancing act with the live foods and supplements. Thankfully, J’s started to take an interest in following the same schedule, though he still eats fish and eggs. (more…)
