|I do some alternative lifestyles as well as alternative medicine.
I'm a 12 year cancer survivor and was treated in the traditional western method - lumpectomy, 34 treatments of radiation. After the shock, etc., we decided to clean up our lifestyles.
I'm not vegan and I don't eat raw but do eat much healthier than I used to.
I eat as much organic as I can find and afford. I grow a lot of our own veggies. I plan to grow wheat grass and use it in my smoothies or juice drinks.
I juice and would love to eat more alkaline than I do.
We take several vitamins/supplements that help our immune system and general health.
I no longer do things like soda and junk food usually only happens when I'm in a foul mood which isn't often
I have an Ayurvedic cookbook which is very interesting.
A couple years ago, after working in the water garden all day, the bone that runs along the inside of my arm formed a knot and I could barely use my hand. If I put a brace on it, it was fine but then I also went to the health food store and bought rhus toxicodendron and took it in pill form and the swelling went down immediately. It's actually made from poison ivy which I'm highly allergic to but I did not have any adverse reaction to it.
Last year, I started getting a head cold and did the following for one week and it never developed into anything and went away. I bought all this at the health food store:
I upped my garlic tabs which I take every other day anyway.
I took Oil of Oregano tabs 3 times a day.
I put "warmed" garlic ear oil in my ears with cotton
I used a throat spray called Propolis & Herbs that had tea tree oil in it.
I put grapefruit seed extract in my juice each day.
I will do anything I can to NOT take traditional antibiotics.
I also use organic toothpaste.
If I eat clean 5 out of 7 days I'm happy.
