Test Results


Hi All,

I hope you’re enjoying every moment of this glorious day.  I recently received more blood work and hair sample test results that I want to share with you.  But first, I thought I’d share a cute story.

The other day, I was sitting down to dinner with my family, and I was telling my husband about an acquaintance of ours who was recently diagnosed with late stage cancer.  I was expressing my concern for this woman and her family when my oldest, Madelyn, chimes in with “Don’t worry Mommy!  Just give her your blog.  She’ll be fine.” 

J

Aaaaahhhh….to be seven again.  But the funny thing is, she’s not all that far off.  This whole scenario gave me the opportunity to explain to my daughter that although this person’s life could be saved if she would read my blog and visit my doctor, most people simply don’t understand the power of good nutrition.  Heck, I’ve been a wellness junkie for almost ten years and even I didn’t really understand the impact of a whole foods diet until I changed to this new protocol last fall.    

The great thing is….she really gets it.  My little one certainly likes her fair share of honey but she is usually mindful of what she consumes and that’s what I’m hoping for at this stage.

So, on to the point of this post.  I’ll stop bragging about my daughter….at least for now.    

I had my blood and hair sample tested last week and both tests indicate that my disease is continuing to regress.  There were several improvements but the most notable one was my hair sample CT (cancer tumor) Mass improving from 20 to 19.5 (10 or below is normal).  Though it’s a small change, achieving a number under 20 is an important milestone and shows that I have much less cancer than I did when I began the program in September with a CT Mass of 27.  I’m really happy about this achievement and my doctor is too. 

On another note, I’ve noticed lately that I’ve been a little “off”.  Nothing major.  Just don’t ask me about some serious, personal topic like the weather because I might start crying. J  After discussing this with Dr. Gonzalez, he said that this may be due to my anemia as my brain is not getting enough oxygen.  This makes sense to me because in the first quarter of the year, I was pretty high on life and my hemoglobin was very close to the normal range.  Since then, it’s been bouncing around a bit and it directly impacts my mood. 

The thing I find most interesting is that a few months ago, I wouldn’t have even noticed that I was “off”.  I thought that having brain fog, moodiness and ADD tendencies was just normal.  After all, every other 40+ woman I know suffers from the same traits.

The only reason I notice this now is because I felt SO good in February and March.  These days, I feel relatively happy but not like I felt a few months ago and that’s how I know I’m not at my personal best.

As a matter of fact, I’m pretty sure that I have spent the majority, if not all, of my life somewhat depressed or “off”…..not living even remotely close to my authentic self.

This, of course, makes me wonder, how many people out there are living subpar lives simply because their brains aren’t receiving the nutrients needed to help them think clearly and be happy?

This whole experience has made me, once again, just feel really lucky to be on this program.  I consistently realize that this untimely cancer diagnosis is really a gift, an opportunity to live a fantastic life.

That’s all for now, dear friends.  Enjoy your day!

  1. Glad to hear that. What is your Hb level? And are there any suugestions from Dr. Gonzales as to how to increase them? My concern is that anemia may reflect increasing amounts of cytokines and other signaling molecules being pumped out by hyperactive if not altered myeloma cells -- even if there are less of them. Do you also undergo traditional testing, such as measurements of M-spike, light chains, total protein, etc.?

  2. Anonymous, thank you for your concern. Dr. Gonzalez runs all the conventional tests you mentioned each month and my numbers are trending in the right direction. All is well.

  3. Excellent! My only symptom is mild anemia -- and that is why I am sensitive to the issue. It is not easy to correct, even if one takes an agressive, conventional course of treatment -- which I have not done. But having a fully oxygenated brain in certainly a desirable thing.

  4. Hi - just found your blog last month. Thanks for keeping us informed. I admire you and also agree with your view on the body being able to heal itself when given the proper food/nutrients. I've been living that way for the last 4 years. It works! My thoughts are with you! P.S. Your daughter is too cute...and very smart!

  7. Hi Theresa. This is Anthea from South Africa. 19th October 2016. I have MM IGa and have been on orthodox treatment for 18 months. Was responding well to treatment until March this year when the tables turned and had some side effects to deal with involving a bowel operation. However I am over that but still not responding to treatment. I b saw your site when looking for a detox method for Multiple Myeloma as the medication us already toxic and I was pumped full of antibiotics over the last 6 months. I looked at the Gets on therapy bit am more interested to hear more about Dr Gonzales therapy and couldn't find your update button. Can you help me with where that is. anthea.labuschagne47@Gmail.com
