Well, it's been a while since I've written and I believe I am now around 8 months of being raw! My life is crazy in the summer and I've hardly been on the computer. I just had an amazing experience I have to share with all of you.
I went for a mammogram two weeks ago. The next day they called me and told me I had changes from last year that needed to be looked at a.s.a.p. I've had cysts but these were micro calcifications and there clusters of them in two spots on my right breast. I went back for another mammogram and the Radiologist came in to tell me they were very suspicious and explained why they were concerned. They scheduled an appt. for 2 biopsies on the same breast last week. Now I have to explain to you that I had cancer 25 years ago and I had so much radiation that it has put me at high risk for many things, breast cancer being one of them. For some crazy reason they see the highest incidence around 20-25 yrs out. SO, what was going through my head during this time was ..................here I am, almost 8 months, 98% raw foods, I exercise, my mind is healthy, I'm in a wonderful relationship, my life is great, so...how could I have breast cancer???? Of all times how could this be happening now. I started wondering about how serious the detox was on the raw food diet and was this a result. Between raw food, body brushing, oil pulling was I detoxing to fast???? The most important thing I have to tell you that even though those "little doubts" would sneak in to my head (thanks to the med. docs) I knew without a doubt I was doing all the right things. I said two things to many people. I said, "There is no way cancer could grow in a body that has only been fed organic veggies and fruit, nuts and seeds. My body is the healthiest it has ever been in 45 years AND I simply do not have time for this in my life." The other thing my bf and I did continually is to visual my cells being perfect including the samples from the biopsy. (I don't know if any of you have ever read the "Biology of belief". It is an amazing book and a must read! Anyway, on Monday the woman from the Dr.s office called and said every sample they took was BENIGN!!!! She even said everyone was shocked (how sad!) in the office. I can't tell you how good it feels and I totally give credit to eating RAW FOODS!!!! When I started this in January I said to Patrick, I feel like by doing this I am saving my life. Little did I know what would be happening 8 months later. I am so thankful Alissa came into my life and with her book and dvd made this so easy to do. Do we need any other reasons to go Raw???? I think not.....................Keep on RAWKIN rawbies, it is the one thing in your life you will never regret!!!!!!
