Wow! If you missed Lisa’s Facebook class on essential oils for post-cancer care, it’s not too late! The link is still active and you can still review all the information she posted. It will only be available for a limited time, so do check it out. I was able to attend and I learned so much. I’m still a relative newbie when it comes to essential oils… I just haven’t had the time to do my homework. So I am grateful for all the information Lisa shared. I took lots of notes and actually started several of her recommendations.
Specifically, I started using the Thieves at bedtime. I was previously using it only when I thought I might be getting sick, but I’ll be adding this to my bedtime ritual. I’m also adding Bergamot to help with balancing hormones. I have been aware of the power of Frankincense for cancer prevention and healing, and I’ve been using a cream I made with frankincense in it. Lisa indicated that she does 2 drops under her tongue at bedtime. I tried this, but I seem to have difficulty ingesting oils, regardless of the type; it always seems to bother my stomach. So tonight, I’m going to start diffusing it at bedtime.
So check it out! https://www.facebook.com/events/920824514700789/
She’ll have more classes in the future on other topics.
Last week we had a visit with my Dad’s radiologist. At this point, we are going to just wait and watch. This type of cancer apparently does not respond well to chemotherapy, and I’m not sure my Dad is the best candidate. In terms of radiation, because Dad is current non-symptomatic, it could actually do more harm than good to try to give him radiation now. So in a few months, the CT scan will be repeated and we’ll see how the disease is progressing. This is supposed to be a slow-growing cancer, although not always. Time will tell. Thanks again for all your good wishes and prayers for Dad.
As for the hives, they are pretty much gone. I did a 2 week cleanse and 5 days of steroids, so I’m not sure which helped… likely both. Still a stray itch here and there, but at least bearable and mostly gone. I’d still love to know what caused them… maybe something viral from when I was sick? Just another mystery, I guess.
