It’s been a long time since I last posted. There have been a lot of bumps on the road, and I haven’t felt much like it. I’m still dealing with those bumps, that came in the form first of dangerously low neutrophils, (they’re still low, but not “dangerously”) and now, at my last visit, my [...]

Part of my good health program started in 2007 when I started taking amygdalin pills from Mexico, alone with enzymes and other supplements. I was advised to also eat the apricot seeds — in addition to the pills. I tried this twice early on in 2007 and 2008. Both times I suffered severe stomach upset. For days.
Green tea is supposed to halt the progression of CLL and, in some cases, improve symptoms.
Here is the list of what I take and what I do, at this time in my life (it has changed many times) to be well and get well. My goal is, and had been, since July 2005, to become cancer-free. Others have done it and so can I. (By implication, you can too!) There [...]
There are two success stories, so far, both men, who have overcome their CLL Leukemia and either achieved remission — or became cancer free! — without conventional treatment. We can think of this as a miracle (which it is) or a sign of possibility and hope (which it is too!).
Like many CLL diagnosis “victims,” I experienced sadness, grieving, easy tears, insomnia, and morbid thoughts. I was overcome by negative thoughts and FEAR. Fear of dying. Fear of death. Fear of leaving my family behind. This made me overwhelmingly sad.
I’ve been taking vitamin D for several years now for my CLL. But it wasn’t until very recently that it has gained “official” acceptance in the medical world as an important supplement for all those with cancer and specially for those with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Here is one article and another on this very topic. [...]
Naltrexone is available by prescription only, whether for chronic lymphocytic leukemia or for any other condition. In its low-dose form, naltrexone is available only from a compounding pharmacy. It is important that you NOT get naltrexone in its slow-release form. You want to get all the benefits of your dosage while you sleep. Here is [...]
I like to keep a file of possible protocols (read: cures) so that I have something to fall back on should there be a less-than-stellar blood test. Low-dose naltrexone was in that file for more than a year before I was able to use it for chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
There is no such thing as a “CLL diet.” When i was first diagnosed, back in July 2001, I clearly recall the hematologist telling me to eat well, exercise and get a good night’s sleep. Unfortunately, he wasn’t very specific about the diet or exercise part. In the years since, I’ve become a natural cook. [...]
