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.

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.
You know these forms you get when you see a new doctor. The ones, where you are asked whether you are pregnant, addicted, suicidal or whether you have any other serious disease. Until recently, the mention of my asthma and pregnancies were not alarming to any of my practitioners. Cancer is.

Hot blooded, coldblooded, blue blooded, full blooded, bloodless, … it all seems to be in our blood. Our blood is the source of a human being’s vitality and identity. We have music in our blood, the characteristics of our ancestors, some of us seem to have evil in their blood. I have leukemia in my blood.
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.
