At some point, I’m going to talk a lot more about food.

I’m going to talk about the foods and drinks I gave up and why. I’m going to talk about the foods I now eat, and how they keep my body and mind whole and healthy. I am a living testament to the fact that food impacts what happens in and outside of my body. Some, but not all of the changes that resulted from my new lifestyle (not a diet) include:

No more allergies: I used to take up to four Benadryl and two Zyrtec a day. Yes, I said a day. I imagine I said some pretty ridiculous things in the fog-brain-stupor I spent such a large amount of time in.

No more debilitating migraine headaches: I’m talking can’t open your eyes, hearing roaring in your head, make you throw up migraines. I must have been a true party to be around!

Eliminating the inflammation in my feet and knees: My pain was so severe if I sat down after running the dogs, I could not stand up and walk without using my arms to pull myself up.

The loss of 40 big, fat, unhealthy pounds: No comment needed.

The ability to sleep all night: Sound sleep resulting in waking up refreshed and rested.

Absolutely no signs or symptoms of the surgically induced menopause I went into on August 14th: Doctors said I would be begging for hormones.I’m not begging for anything, but I’m praising for everything!

Pathology results that could not be explained by medical professionals: My abnormal, aggressive, quickly growing, Grade 3 tumor did not grow even one millimeter from the first week measurement in May, 2012 to August 14, 2012 when it was removed. The conflicting pathology reports divided the opinions of five Oncologists regarding any potential benefits of my having chemo (did I mention I did not have chemo or radiation)?

I will give the marvelous creation of my body the respect it deserves. God has blessed me with many healthy choices that can and will heal my body and mind.

So yes, at some point, I’m going to talk a lot more about food.

    Don’t forget to add the benefit of having your family look into their eating habits and making positive changes too!!

  2. Sierra says:

    I love that you are writing about your journey and that you are doing so well! Can’t wait to read more! Especially interested in the food choices you have made. My allergies are SO bad yet I’ve been tested 3 times with no real results.

  3. Monica Myers says:

    Trish! I had no idea you were going through this! I will keep you in my prayers. Sounds like you know what you’re doing. I suffer from migraines as well. I would love to hear what it is that you are doing that the migraines and allergies are gone! That is so awesome!

    • Trish T says:

      Thank you for the prayers Monica! I’ll take them! 🙂 I will start talking about some of what I’ve done this weekend. Not easy to change habits, but for me it has been totally worth it!

    It’s amazing how much of a difference it makes in masking the pain and actually healing the body. So many people don’t know how bad they really feel because they have tolerated it for so long. Acting on knowledge brings change and so does prayer. Keep up the good work and words!

    • Trish T says:

      Isn’t that the truth!?! That topic will actually be part of another blog! Thank you my sister for your good work and words that have made my journey so much easier!

    This is amazing me. Donna used to tell me she was worried about Starla because she ate unhealthy and you were the one to eat was always so worried you two would get breast cancer. This is bringing back many memories. I did not realize you haven’t been eating healthy all along.

    • Trish T says:

      Jeanette, I didn’t know how bad my diet was until I TRULY started reading ingredients and what they are/do to your body. I always thought I had a healthy diet! You are right, this situation does bring back a lot of memories. My next post will actually address some of that. It will likely be the most difficult post I write. So glad my mom had you as a true friend!!

  6. Mary Ann Ramsel says:

    Hi Trish! You are such a most amazing person and always inspired and motivated me while at SF. And now it continues as I follow you on your journey and learn to also make more healthy choices. God bless you!

    • Trish T says:

      Thanks Mary Ann! I miss seeing your smiling face at the Farm! I truly appreciate your support!

      • Mary Ann Ramsel says:

        I would like to know how you started your day 1 to start eliminating the unhealthly things from your diet? Did you do a cleanse first or just started tapering off the unhealthy foods, restaurant food, wine, cheeses, etc. I know you are so dedicated to your goals and I admire you so, so much! 🙂

      • Trish T says:

        Mary Ann, I’ll post about this next week! It was a gradual process at first, but became an overnight finish after my diagnosis! lol!
