My immune system is so delicate. A sneeze turns into a cold turns into bronchitis turns into pneumonia. I am not kidding. I have been trying to boost my defense for at least twenty years. 99 percent of the usual natural remedies don’t work for me. Initially, when I found out that I had CLL it seemed like a logical consequence of those millions of viruses and bacteria which have inhabited my body. Of course, I still try to improve my resistance against infections.
I wondered whether I would have to change my diet after being having been diagnosed with leukemia, but my doctors (seriously!) told me not to mind. After a while, when I realized that my health condition was slowly deteriorating, I searched the internet for cancer diets and ended up with the Budwig Protocol.
I want everything under the sun but skin cancer. Summer has always been my favorite time of the year. I have never worried whether a sun tan is fashionable or not, I just loved being under the sun, at the beach, close to the sea. Skin cancer has become an issue for me now, as CLL makes me vulnerable to other types of cancer as well.
When I was young, I wouldn’t have thought so. Whatever my grandmother told me – it was true. A bright but uneducated daughter of a farmer, she was an ayurvedic healer as well as a specialist in Chinese medicine. My granny was an ecological expert and a resourceful nutritionist. She was a wonderful therapist at the same time. I will tell you what she used to say.
