I promised to keep you updated about all the testing for cancer recurrence I’ve been doing. I plan to blog about this with more information in a few months, so I can share the valuable information I have learned about seeking beyond the mainstream healthcare system for a more comprehensive view and treatment of my health. Integrative health is a passion of mine – using both western and alternative health options, and creating an environment in the body so it can help heal itself.
No one perfect test – There isn’t a 100% accurate test for the presence of cancer that tells you with certainty if you have cancer, the type, and where it is, so the best approach is to have a series of various tests (blood screening, MRI’s, ultrasounds, etc) to get an all around view, and to see if the various tests point to a similar diagnosis.
‘Grey’ zone results – I’ve had a number of tests done, and re-done now that I have baseline numbers. Some results came back squeaky clean and some showed ’cause for concern’.
So I decided to be proactive and start a natural immunotherapy treatment. If there is cancer in my body, this treatment should get it under control. The great thing is that by getting certain blood tests done, I will know if I am responding to this treatment.
I am feeling well overall, eating very well and continue a lifestyle that includes meditation and mindfulness. Thank all of you who write to me to ask how I’m doing. I will keep you posted and hope to have a success story to tell in a few months!
