The stitches are out!!  All 58 of them came out today, along with 1 staple.  After my last surgery, there were several random staples on parts of my head.  I’m not exactly sure what purpose the holes served, but it was an interesting task for my doctor to try and find them all.  This time, there was just one random hole.  I’m glad, too, because that one did not want to come out…

Many are asking, so here is a summary of what my diet looks like right now, while I’m trying to deal with this remaining tumor in my head.

Breakfast – Fruit Smoothie  (1/2 cup blueberries, 1/2 cup blackberries, 1/2 cup strawberries, 1 cup water, 1/2 cup Organic plain yogurt, 1/4 cup flaxseed oil, 1/4 cup of  Garden of Life Perfect Food (greens powder))

Everyday, I juice a combined 20 ounces of the following: Carrots, celery, garlic, 1 green apple.  I add 1/2 cup of Garden of Life Perfect Food to this, as well.  I split this into 3 different servings.  One usually at lunch time, one mid-afternoon, and one at dinner.  Spreading it out helps my body to assimilate all of the nutrients I’m giving it, at the time.  When you give your body too much, all at once, it will pass it through your body because it doesn’t need it all at the same time.

Snacks – Dehydrated apple rings, roasted almonds.  If you don’t own a food dehydrator, I  highly recommend getting one!!  I dehydrate apple rings on a regular basis.  They are the most amazing snack, especially when you have a sweet tooth.   Get a good apple variety(Sonata apples are my new favorite), peel them with an apple corer/slicer (they’re like $10!!), sprinkle some cinnamon, cloves, etc… on them, and throw them on the dehydrator.  I have about 20 quart bags of them in my freezer.  They are so good frozen, as well, but just pull out a bag and let them thaw, when needed.  I roast my own almonds.  Costco has a huge bag of raw almonds that you can buy.  I lightly coat those in olive oil.  I sprinkle sea salt and garlic powder on them, to taste.  I then spread them out on a cookie sheet and roast them in the oven on 200 degrees for around 3 hours.  The key is to not put too much oil on them or they won’t dry, and keep the heat down so that they don’t burn.  Low and slow is best.  They are a very filling snack and they are loaded with Co-Q10, which is a great cancer fighter.  Olive oil is an Omega 3 fatty acid, which is an even greater cancer fighter.

Dinner – Some kind of meat and vegetable.  I’m trying not to eat a lot of calories, so I will eat some of whatever kind of meat I make for dinner, along with whatever vegetable I’ve made.

Beverages – Aside from the juice I make, I now keep a pitcher full of green/white/peppermint tea combo (Long Life Tea brand…mmm….) in the fridge.  I try to drink several glasses a day of that.  I will also drink that tea hot, at least once.  I also drink a lot of water with freshly squeezed lemon in it.  Lemon water is great for flushing out your system and has an alkaline effect on the cellular PH of your body.  And it’s just amazingly refreshing!!

So that is my diet.  Recent studies have shown that dietary caloric restriction has been shown to control brain cancer.  Check it out:

So, because of this, I try and keep my caloric intake somewhat limited.  This does not mean I am depriving my body of calories.  Quite the opposite.  I feed it less, but what I do feed it is nutrient-dense in every way, so I’m better nourished than I was before. 
Still awaiting that pathology…..thanks for your prayers!!  Good night…
