I just wanted to quickly recap on my progress during the last week for those who might have missed some of my blog postings.
Generally I feel better today than I have done for nearly three years, prior to me becoming ill with cancer in January 2010. This is a really good and positive sign which is boosting my confidence that what I am doing is actually working.
I still have a major pain issue with my back but have arranged a session with a highly recommended masseur called Julie tomorrow morning at 10am. The purpose of this visit is to try and establish if I have a problem with my back that is causing the pain, or if it’s something to do with my cancer.
In Brandon Bays’ book ‘The Journey’ she talks about having massages on a regular basis as it helps to remove toxins from the body. If I have an issue with my back then a series of massages hopefully will help solve that problem as well as helping my body to rid itself of those toxins which clog it up.
I’ve never had a massage before so I’m not really sure what to expect, but I guess it will be ok and will be a new experience for me. I might even enjoy it!
I’ve been quite strict with my diet this week, avoiding all of the things that I am not supposed to eat or drink – well at least until Friday I did. Friday was a very alkali day but at 6pm I started my weekly evening off!
I had a chicken and vegetable curry which I made myself, just a few small pieces of chicken and a range of veg – only a tiny portion really – along with a small Naan bread and a couple of spoons of basmati rice. All washed down with a couple of glasses of my favourite read wine!
I then returned to drinking tea (Roobios – actually a member of the legume family, so no caffeine) and of course my pH enhanced water. Clare was eating crisps and ice cream (not together) but I manages to ignore the temptation and be a good boy.
As much as I enjoyed my treat, I didn’t actually feel very well afterwards for the rest of the evening. My stomach seemed to be objected to something. Strange really, as I find normally a glass or two of wine actually seems to settled my stomach down.
It all sounds as if I have been a naughty boy, but I am permitted up to 20% of my food being acidic rather than neutral or alkali forming. I probably need to make my own Naan bread in future as the one I had was made with yeast which is a no-no for me. It can be made with baking powder just as well.
Yesterday Clare was working in the afternoon so I set about making a Butternut Squash and Red Pepper soup for my lunch during the coming week. I’ve had a little try of it and it is delicious! I’m getting to enjoy having soup for lunch rather than sandwiches which apparently are so bad for me. Yesterday saw me back on my special diet. In fact – I was extra careful because I wanted to compensate for any acid that the previous evening had produced. Tomorrow I will finished the day with a vegetable stir fry with a small Tuna steak lightly fried in a touch of butter, quite delicious.
My daughter Becky is coming this morning to keep me company while Clare takes her daughter Grace and Jade’s daughter Charlotte swimming at the local pool. I think Becky and I are going to walk around the two local lakes and enjoy the fine weather. I so enjoy her company.
I will leave you now to get on with whatever it is you’re doing and will speak with you tomorrow probably.
Best wishes for the weekend.
