God is good, and prayers really do work. Really.
I went to see the surgeon this morning for the final pathology report and the news was so much better than I expected. My baseball sized tumor turned out to be totally benign. No need to do anything else.
Before I got this diagnosis, I researched cancer, and what I could expect if the tumor was malignant. Of course, the one thing that stood out was that diet plays a HUGE part in warding off cancer.
I’ve decided to be proactive and start healing my body from the inside out. My diet will be the first to get overhauled.
Below is a list of cancer fighting foods, and POWER foods that keep your body running at it’s optimum:
- Broccoli, cauliflour, carrots
- Blueberries, strawberries
- Salmon (wild caught)
- Leafy greens – spinach, kale
- Sweet potatoes
- Tea, ginger
- Chia seeds
- Walnuts, Almonds
as well as other fruits, veggies, turkey and chicken.
The following foods will take a back seat to my diet, and eventually will be removed.
- white flours
- processed foods
My husband, by default, will be doing the same.
This, of course, will not be easy, since I LIVE on sugar and carbs. Initially I’m sure I’ll resist a bit, but knowing that I will be taking care of my health (not so much for weight, but for internal well-being), I will be able to make the changes necessary.
I am beyond grateful for this outcome, and will never take my health for granted again, nor the power of prayer.
Thank you to all those who prayed for me during the last 6 weeks of this health crisis. It’s been a very humbling experience, and I will always remember what got me to this point.
And now, I can return to regular scheduled programming on MidlifeMomMusings….and I couldn’t be happier.
