Posted by: Denise on: March 31, 2019

Believe me, you are not alone in having fear of CLL! Here are a few suggestions that have worked for me.

CLL: Mushrooms and Neutrophils

The good health, including normal absolute neutrophil counts, continued, and continue to this day.

CLL: Intermittent Fasting,
Reducing Carbs, and Detox Bath

Posted by: Denise on: February 11, 2019

I just wanted to check in because it’s been a while since I’ve made a post, and one of my CLL-buddies just wrote to ask if I’m okay. I am. I am okay. My numbers continue to be stable and I like to coast occasionally. By “coast” I mean that I continue doing whatever is […]

CLL and Intermittent Fasting

Posted by: Denise on: September 25, 2018

Intermittent fasting has become quite the craze. Google it and you will see countless pages, including many youtube.com videos touting its safety and effectiveness. I agree…to a point. It turns out I’ve been intermittent fasting for years – but didn’t realize it. Does that sound crazy? Let me explain. Before I started a truly healthy […]

CLL Book…Taking Topics

Posted by: Denise on: July 19, 2018

It’s been a while since I’ve posted about writing a CLL book. I still want to! (I still haven’t.) I have compiled a list of important topics to be covered. I will list below. I’m taking suggestions. What would you like in a book like this (that isn’t included in the topics below)? I can’t […]

Living Well with CLL —
the Movie Part 1

Posted by: Denise on: June 6, 2018

If you’re interested in more CLL alternative health videos, here is video #1. (I know, I know, this is my second posting of a CLL video; I posted out of order. Please forgive my inexperience at becoming a movie “professional.”) In this movie, I introduce Teresa, who came with her husband, Keith, to visit us […]

New CLL Alternatives Video

Posted by: Denise on: May 30, 2018

I made a series of videos with Teresa, a CLL buddy I met through this site — and who was visiting the state for her son’s graduation. This is the first of what will be many videos from this meeting. I hope you get some good information from it.  It took me some time to […]

For whatever reason, when I was first diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia by my original hematologist, he advised that I keep the news to myself. “It’s stage zero. You have no symptoms; you look healthy. So there’s really no reason to tell everyone you know—unless you want to.” Unless you want to. I had no […]

CLL Diagnosis: 16 Natural Things to do

Posted by: Denise on: November 7, 2017

When people first find my site, CLLAlternatives.com, it’s generally because either they—or someone they care about—has recently been diagnosed. Of all the gut-punches a person can sustain in their life, this is probably the worst. Even the word leukemia itself strikes terror. A blood cancer. A death sentence.   I get emails and postings from […]

CLL: Curable? Manageable?

Posted by: Denise on: September 1, 2017

Hello, It’s September 1st of 2017, and I thought I just might be overdue on making a post here. An update, if you will. I’m doing fine. Great, even. As a matter of fact I pay more attention to my signs of aging than I do my CLL, which is amazing! When I realign my […]
