I call this piece “Investment Options”
NOTHING about this is inexpensive or quick but neither is anything about chemotherapy, months out of work, and doctors appointments every other day. You have to decide early what’s the better investment. This is not to say that the reason I got sick was because I was a terrible eater, sometimes shit just happens. I have gone through chemotherapy with devout vegans, vegetarians, and healthy eaters who work out damn near everyday. However, I am learning how to fortify my body from the inside out so that my chances at a longer healthier life go up instead of down. I am learning how to let the things I put into my body be my first line of defense and if necessary, let modern medicine be my last resort. I am gaining valuable knowledge daily on how certain foods work to create a healthy environment within my body and I must say that it feels great. I want what had to become a habit for me later in life to be second nature in my daughter’s life. I NEVER want to see her suffer as I have with her health. How can I truly say I love her if I don’t make the same sacrifices to protect her inner body the same way I unhesitatingly, go out of my way to protect her outer body. I am not trying to say follow what I am doing because all of the suggestions and renowned remedies from these holistic doctors didn’t work for me. What I am saying is try. Take the first step in educating yourself. Keep testing out different things until you find what works for you. Because I am a living witness that spending the money afterwards is way cheaper than spending the money upfront. I have been cut on more times than I care to remember so, if I have to take a few hours out my day to cut on some fruits and vegetables, which one you think I am choosing? I suppose, I am trying to share as I learn friends. I am trying to make what was hard for me easy or easier for someone else.
