I can't believe this. It finally came to me, and I DON'T KNOW WHY I didn't realize this to begin with! I was drinking ESSIAC TEA regularly and then slacked off (sigh) JUST BEFORE I got my ferritin test done at the end of November that showed a drop of 200 points! THIS is what lowered it! The reason I missed this is because I was drinking the Tea for my Thyroid and not seeing any results or feeling any differently. So that's all I was focused on. Because I was taking the IP6 and it claimed to lower ferritin, I just assumed that's what did it. Now I know the TRUTH!
I've been constantly PRAYING for God to help me to REMEMBER what in the world it was that I DID during that time. And it just now came to me .... ESSIAC TEA!
I still have some left over, so I'll get started on it again right away. I can't believe I'd forgotten this. This does not mean I'm going to stop eating healthier or doing intermittent fasting. I've got to take care of my body! I need to repair it, heal it, from all the damage that's been caused by the radiation and chemo that failed me. Eating a raw, vegan diet is what's going to do that.
Thank You, God! Thank You for being my DOCTOR! It's always His stuff that helps me! Thank You, my precious Lord, for helping me to REMEMBER! PRAISE YOU LORD!
So .... this is where I got my Essiac Tea in case you're interested (and NO I do NOT work for these people): www.discount-essiac-tea.com.
I also need to thank a precious friend and sister in Christ who introduced me to the tea. Thank you, my dear friend, Cathy. You know who you are! I love you! xxx
Finally, another friend introduced me to something new that is shown to be very successful at wiping out cancer. It's called CELLECT. I have yet to try it, but this friend said it wiped out her cancer. In just over a month it dissolved a lemon-sized tumor! You can read about it here:
Again, I can't thank my Heavenly Father enough for showing me the way. He is The Great Physician, and I'm beyond grateful that He's willing to be my Doctor. There aren't enough words to describe my gratitude.
God is GOOD. (No matter what happens!) I love Him.
I just got bad news yesterday when my lab reports came in. Turns out, my ferritin levels have gone up significantly! It went from approx. 785 to 1065. Normal ranges should be 5 - 150 approximately. I’m so disappointed about this because it means the IP6 isn’t working to lower the ferritin levels like I thought. I’ve been racking my brain to figure out what caused them to drop 200 points from the 971 range, which took places between July 2017 to the end of November 2017. What did I do between July and November that caused these numbers to drop?
I was taking the IP6 (sporadically)
I was doing some intermittent fasts (not often)
I had been on hash oil (for fear this was cancer)
My conclusion is that the IP6 had nothing to do with it since right now my numbers have skyrocketed and I’ve been taking it consistently.
So, what in the world should I do?
I’m trying to remember what my diet was like during that time. Like I said, I’d been fasting on and off. But I hadn’t really changed how I ate. Of course, I always try to avoid sugar. It’s possible I did a better job of that before the Holidays.
The causes for my high ferritin could be from chemo (all the chemo and radiation I had during my cancer treatments that failed) or it could be from my having Chronic Kidney Disease (which I've been diagnosed with), or it can be cancer. I read about this at the following LINK: https://link.springer.com/article/10.2478/s11536-013-0256-4.
I feel defeated.
I have to trust God to fix this for me, to lead me to the right solutions. I suppose I’ll get back on the hash oil, start fasting again, and also significantly change my diet to a steady course of raw fruits and vegetables. This isn’t easy when you’ve got a family of five to feed and make meals for, but it looks like they’re going to have to start eating my way for it to work. Certainly won’t kill them, that’s for sure! And Lord-willing, it’ll lower my ferritin levels and keep me alive a bit longer!
Please pray for me.
On November 1, 2010, I was diagnosed with Stage Four Non-Hodgkins T-cell Lymphoma when my oncologist found a tumor in my head. He gave me radiation for this tumor, which continued to light up on all the PET scans for the rest of my treatments, but the growth had stopped. Within a year-and-a-half I was given eight rounds of chemo (including 22-hour bags and other numerous amounts of smaller injections of chemo that are innumerable—nearly bleeding to death twice), 35 treatments of radiation, a stem-cell transplant (which included "enough chemo to kill a healthy person"—my oncologist liked to say—along with full-body radiation), and numerous amounts of drugs and one magnesium vitamin.
