Bravelute... I hope you feel much better quickly! I can't stand hospital food. I see the way I eat as my poor health prevention program. It isn't just about protecting myself from cancer, but also from other ailments, disorders, etc. It seems to be working for me so far. I haven't even been getting colds since I started eating healthy and exercising.

When my Mother was in the hospital recovering from heart surgery we would not allow her to eat many of the foods that the hospital served. We told them that she was allergic to corn and corn syrup (which they found out first hand when they ignored us and gave it to her) Also, when my sister was in the hospital this past January, I told the nutritionist that we were trying to get her healthy! She apologized for what they had on hand and said that their hands were tied - so we brought in our own food. The staff was very accommodating!

In this article, Dr. Funrman makes a case to stop calling it Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and start focusing on Breast Cancer Prevention Month.

I say, let's work to prevent ALL cancers. And we have a food list here that will help us do just that. Can you see how anti-antiogenic foods are a major part of Dr. Fuhrman's plan?

So, let's make every day a Cancer Prevention Day, or better still, Poor-Health Prevention Day.

I found myself in the hospital last night, admitted with insufferalble abdominal pain and vomitting. The small intestine obstruction appears to be clearing, vomitting is improving, and I've been pacing the halls today, with my spark tracker on. If you ask me, this is a great testament to the health benefits I have received from this anti-angiogenic program. And with my history of cancer, I was ready for that to be the reason for this blockage. But no, they aren't finding any reason for it. At least not yet.

Eating anti-angiogenic foods doesn't mean that health problems won't crop up. But I feel my body will be better equipped to deal with them and take me back toward health more quickly than my old diet did!

Now to the hospital clear liquid diet. I Was given apple and cranberry juice, coffee, and tea. Otherwise it was various ways to present sugar water, I think to pack in the calories. There certainly wasn't any nutrition to supplement the potassium and sodium in the IV drip.

Where is the dietician. Wouldn't we heal faster with an extracted juice of apple, carrot, beets, and perhaps a little spinach? I think, YES!!

Tomorrow, have a 5 Alive meal and think of me downing broth, jello, juice, tea, and coffee.
