I am in disbelief when a woman tells me that she is doing "x" because her doctor told her to, and then she knows almost nothing about "x".
We are smart strong women, with community and family....and the internet. The doctors do the best they can do, yet none of us, even doctors, knows what we don't know until we know it.
I suggest understanding the objectives of a treatment and then researching with the objective of finding the healthiest way to achieve the objective, with the least side effects. Taking drugs or potentially harmful treatments are only options.
I believe it's about prevention, and finding the the least, about changing the terrain of the body, that gave rise to the cancer.

Many women live the same lifestyle after discovering BC. The saying goes, how could anyone expect a different outcome if they keep doing the same thing over and over.

I understand, having been there, that it's terrifying. That's what friends, family and doctors are for, in addition to ourselves.

Your intuition is your best friend....and works best with knowledge. Don't drown in the knowledge, just find good sources, like this site, and others.

And remember, to envision what we DO want to see. The word "not" is not understood by the brain, ie I don't want to be understood by the brain as I want to be sick.

I have more to say and hope I haven't overstepped boundaries. We each have to choose what's best for us, and yet all of us,
has intuition.

Sleep early and well,

Having been dealing with breast cancer for a year now and trying to understand the "why" I find there are still no real answers. There seems to be no ryhme nor reason to it. I have known so many who did everything right, lived as healthy a life as could be and still became afflicted with this disease. I know many who are obese, don't take care of themselves, don't exercise, are older than me and do not have it. I still try to pay attention to the risk factors but after obsessing over every little thing I put in my mouth since being diagnosed, I have finally come to the realization that I want to live my life however long I have and don't want to always be worried or obsessed over this. Easier said than done however.


Great Blog! I love your mission and groundbreaking leadership on this...
