I had the bloodwork done on Wednesday, June 20. I saw the oncologist on the next day. He said my B-cells had doubled in volume but there was still no need for treatment yet. He always tells me I am free to get a second opinion. I haven’t yet, but may consider it.
I have been making a fruit smoothie almost every morning using an apple (with seeds) first, followed by pineapple, then papya, both of which have been marinated in honey and kept in mason jars. Then I add lots of blueberries (fresh when I can get them), and a banana or kiwi fruit if there’s room in the blender and still leaves room for juice.
Apparently this has not been sufficient to lower the B-cell count. I have looked at Ketogenic diet (site says not recommended for cancer patients), Forks Over Knives website (interesting, but I am not going to totally give up meat. The body needs protein and too many beans causes other problems.) I also looked at Hallelujah Acres. This website sells a lot of natural products and supplements as well as suggests a diet regimen. I will check out the cost of the barley grass juice mix, not only from their site, but from other sources as well. I am also taking a women’s probiotic, drinking at least one cup of detox tea a day (when I have time), and one cup of Essiac Tea per day.
Ultimately, I will do what I can to be healthy. The rest is up to the Lord. Either way, I will be healed–either in this life or the next. I have this assurance because I have Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I don’t have to worry about whether I have done more good than bad in my life, or whether I got baptized the right way, or lived perfectly and made it to the end. Jesus offers the FREE GIFT of ETERNAL LIFE (not until we mess up, not if God is having a bad day, or if I forgot to say ‘thank you’ to someone); God created language and knows the meaning of the word ‘eternal’. He means what He says, and says what He means.
Where will you spend eternity? The offer of salvation is free to everyone who asks. There is no one too bad, too ugly, too unworthy, or too sinful. Romans 3:10 says there is none righteous. Not one single person is righteous in God’s eyes. Verse 23 says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin (what we earn from our sinful ways) is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life. v. 17: “For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. v. 18: “He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he tht believeth no is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” What sends people to hell is not the bad things that they have done, but rejection of God’s Son, Jesus, who paid our sin debt.
All you have to do is ask God to save you from your sin and make you a new person. It is a process. God doesn’t change everything at once. He leads us a little at time, putting His finger on what He wants to change. You don’t have to give up anything to get saved. Once you are saved, God promises a better, happier life (not all the time; life will always have its own troubles), and also promises to carry us through the tough times when they come. He promises never to leave us or forsake us. Sometimes He seems far away. If I’m not close to God, it is me who has moved.
