I started juicing when he was in my belly.
Doctors told me I had a very aggressive lymphoma and I needed a very aggressive chemo for my best chance of survival.
I asked for recommendations with nutrition to help me heal and was given outdated food pyramid material. That was not the information I was hoping to receive. Omg 🤦🏻♀️ at that point I knew I had to do my own research and become my own advocate!
I prayed. I meditated. I asked Spirit for guidance and went online. I remembered how touched I was by @crazysexykris
when I first came across her story. I was determined to find answers, to give it my best shot, not only to survive for my family, for my husband and our 3 kids + baby on the way, but I was determined to get through it all without having to terminate pregnancy. I believed my best outcome would include a complete healing, a healthy family and a healthy baby.
I decided to start juicing and even though I didn’t know the specific benefits, I felt inspired enough to nourish my body and my baby with fruits and veggies. And after researching everything about Hodgkins Lymphoma, I decided to do the chemo also.
6 months of ABVD chemo, injecting anticoagulants twice daily for 2 months (bc the huge tumor in my chest was wrapped around main blood vessels = high risk for heart failure), numerous ct scans covering my belly to minimize radiation exposure, all the side effects, losing hair by the handfuls, balding, Giving vaginal birth to a beautiful healthy baby boy after 4 months of exhausting chemo and then, tubal ligation surgery, caring for my newborn (midnight feedings etc) & more chemo immediately after delivery..... + 25 radiation (Mon - Fri for 5 weeks).
It was all so worth it when I heard NO EVIDENCE of DISEASE!
BUT, my thyroid was damaged and I was left with crazy side effects. God answered my prayers by connecting me to @medicalmedium
🙏🏼💙🕊🎉🙌🏼 I found hope, reassurance and a roadmap to truly HEAL with food. I’ve been off all meds for 6 months, Thyroid is in normal range, & I feel so good. My baby is almost 4, my family is healthy & we’re all learning more about healing, wellness & prevention. Thank you Anthony!
