Worried about my CT scan - any suggestions for detoxing before/after?
So I have my regular CT scan booked for this next Tuesday. I have only had two since the surgery (more before the surgery) for the cartilage cancer I had in the summer of 2010. The plan from the cancer agency is twice/year for the first two years, and then once a year after that for at least five years.
My problem is my sensitivity to .... everything. I don't like having to have the scan but I don't want to worry about a recurrence of cancer either! I believe that the radiation and barium injection could be harming me... it certainly always makes me feel sick. Even though I feel so much stronger as I am almost 100% raw, I would like to be able to prepare for this, nutritionally speaking. I was hoping that someone would have some suggestions as to what to eat/drink the day before/of/after? The hospital only recommends that you drink 2 litres of water before and after.
If the cancer hadn't been such a recent and serious life-threatening issue, I would turn down the scan altogether. I'm just not there yet.
