Organics, chemicals, diet, and fatigue
Thursday, March 06, 2014
I will have my 8th of 16 treatments tomorrow. I got my questions about nutrition answered today by a oncology dietitian. I will no longer buy soy products. I will eat antioxidants that are foods - all kinds. I will not take any supplements containing high levels of antioxidants.
I still have hopes of learning how to take off weight and keep my cancer from returning. Just in case I fail to get that connection I went on Amazon and found some books.
I trained yesterday after radiation. Whew! I was tired in the early evening. Today I just rested and did some light exercise at home. I watched a movie on DVD tonight. I need the diversion.
I spoke with a friend who has a recent diagnosis of breast cancer. I also spoke to several women who have 20 something daughters with cancer. The BUZZ in my circles of friends deals with chemicals in water, food, hormones given to animals. and so much more.
I am drinking spring water whenever I can. I am working on organic foods. My lawn service uses organic treatments. I use detergents and soaps that are safer for delicate skin.
I find that I either need to take the morning off and sleep late or else take a nap after radiation. I feel rather good, but tire quickly.
