Baldies' Blog began originally in the UK by a 26 year old journalist with a blood cancer on a mission to inform the world about bone marrow donation.

He has since died, and I took on the cause of making cancer care more transparent for everybody.

Cancer is a disease that will touch everybody through diagnosis or affiliation: 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed and 1 in 3 woman will hear those words, "You Have Cancer."

I invite you to read how I feel along my journey and
how I am continuing to live a full life alongside my Hodgkin's lymphoma, with me controlling my cancer, not my cancer controlling me.

I hope that "Baldies' Blog" will prepare you to handle whatever life sends you, but especially if it's the message, "You Have Cancer."

Natural girl

The detox seems worse than the chemo this time.
Through out the transplant, I was fine. I was good. I was moving around, dancing, exercising, I wound up in the hospital once or twice, but not for anything serious.
A severe abdominal pain with diarrhea? Well that can happen anytime, to any relatively healthy person
Not so bad.
The detox seems to be beating me down.
I can’t say that conclusively……
since I have been integrating other things into my surroundings. It can’t just be the new 75% fruit and vegetable diet I instituted with no refined sugars and removal of all “white”(aka processed) carbs.
Maybe my body is taking too much on at once.
Maybe integrating into the family structure again in conjunction with expanding or refining your diet should be kept separate so as not to interfere with the finding of whether the new diet or my newly extended exposure caused my problems.
I vote the exposure did.
I’m again going to start staying away from people while I ease into my new diet.
Then I’ll be able to tell which nasty side effects come from medication and which nasty side effects come from exposure.
No more exposure.
It’s just nasty side effects time. I did add Berberis Hommaccord to my mix.
It’s a potent, natural anti-inflammatory.
It’s used in many different cultures outside the US: Germany, Austria, and homeopaths here will prescribe it.
This reduces inflammation.
Inflammation, it appears, wreaks havoc on cancer. It’s like putting fire to hay.
The NSAIDs have been thought of as a possible assistant to stop this from happening, but they’ve been knocked out of the anti-cancer drug war because they could do damage to the kidneys and cause bleeding and ulcers. Celebrex and Vioxx were the next big hopefuls but after their mishap with the cardiac industry, they’re pretty much off the table for struggling cancer patients.
Berberis Hommacord is widely available online and seems to provide the safest anti-inflammatory action available.
Of the above options, I would absolutely recommend the homeopathic regimen at stopping inflammation, and thus, it’s possible correlation to cancer.
I’m beginning to take this.
Everything in me now is natural.
And I hope to keep it that way.
I always was a natural girl.

Go Hillary! Sounds like a good plan to ease into things and keep as many germs away as possible. Just remember how many countless people you have cheering for you, rooting for you, praying for you thinking of you and sending all kinds of positive energy your way.

Keep up the great work!

I think you might be right about easing up on the exposure portion - there are lots of pesky cooties flying around and landing without permission on whoever is around... Keep up the fight - so many people are on your side!
