– My Magic Powder

My concoction has earned the name of “Magic powder” because even though I am supposedly immune-suppressed, I have not gotten a cold or flu in the last six years I have been taking it… even when I was undergoing chemotherapy. In fact, as everyone around me has gotten sick, I have had to take care of them, exposing myself to the bacteria and viruses afflicting them but not succumbing.  The only times I have gotten sick were when I didn’t take it with me while travelling. While I do take occasional holidays from all my treatments, I no longer travel without it, as that is when I need its protection most. I have to think it played a role in my survival of the intensive chemo and radiation regimen I endured and is also playing a role in my being NEAD (No Evidence of Active Disease) since May, 2014, against all odds.

Many of the cancer-killing and immune-boosting supplements were expensive in pill form. Wanting affordability and more control of the sourcing, I ordered bulk powder from wholesalers. I pre-mix a month-or-so supply and mix a small spoonful or so with my juice in the morning before eating to maximize absorption. I am a big believer in our bodies, our higher healing selves if you will, knowing on a sub-conscious, intuitive level, what we need to heal. When mixing, I ask my body through muscle testing what proportions of which substances are needed for the next month or so. The default is equal parts and I vary from there. Each morning I ask my body how large the spoonful should be.

Five years ago, when I was given weeks to live, I didn’t have a lot to lose. I couldn’t wait for clinical trials that hadn’t been conducted yet. I decided to try anything that a credible source said could work to detoxify me, boost my immune system, and kill cancer. I asked my oncologist and researched to ensure nothing would interfere with my chemotherapy and radiation. For example, some chemos are deadly when grapefruit is ingested and supplemental anti-oxidants can interfere with the efficacy of chemo.  So you want to be sure to talk to your oncologist before taking any of these things to discuss possible interactions with drugs you may be taking. Warning: some oncologists will simply say no to taking anything besides western medicine. You must determine their credibility and do your own research. I fired one and my subsequent oncologists have been naturopathic, integrative, or osteopathic oncologists and are very well educated on complementary therapies and drug/supplement interactions.
