Health Stuff

I'm rather tardy about getting about to writing this post, but here I sit with gritted teeth, and I'm gonna get it done!

The last few months have been interesting ones for me health wise. In brief, I spent from June 2 to August 27 waiting to find out whether or not I had cervical cancer. Praise the Lord, the results came back negative (which is a big positive!). However, they did find some precancerous cells (CIN1), and I go back in six months (from the end of August) to get re-tested.

In the meantime, we'll be working on making my body the least hospitable host possible for any nastiness trying to grow. For the record, here's most of the regime that we've formulated:

**Daily Multi-vitamin/Multi-mineral supplement.

**Progesterone cream - Excess estrogen promotes cancer growth, and as I've discussed here
before (and no, I haven't finished that series yet...), I discovered last year that I was waaay estrogen dominant. I've recently gone back to using the bio-identical progesterone cream to help with that.

**Liver Support - Among a myriad of other functions, the liver helps with hormone issues. I'm taking Milk Thistle and Dandelion supplements to support liver function.

**Thyroid Support - I'm taking a natural supplement to support thyroid function, as well as taking an iodine supplement (under the supervision of a qualified health practitioner) to help restore my body's iodine supply, which is critical to thyroid function.

**Topical Regime - I will also soon be starting a mostly topical regime targetting my cervix (under the supervision of the aforementioned qualified health practitioner). I'm not going to go into the details of that on this blog. :-)

**Ph Balance - I've found that my body is extremely acidic, and getting a better ph balance will help create that inhospitable environment I'm working for. This is pretty much done through food, so I'm in the process of revising my diet. And I'll admit that it's not fun. :-) But it's worth it.

I think that's all. All - Ha! By the time I get all these systems working right, I suspect that I'll be feeling better than I have in years.

This post is pretty much a sketch version of most of these issues. If you're curious, I might work on posting more details on some of them. And if you want to read about the journey from "What's that?" in labor to "There's no cancer, but..." email me at and I'll see about getting you access to the private blog I started for blogging about that.

And now, I must go nurse the little man!
