Miggy’s diet

Good Morning,

Hope you are all well and set to enjoy the great weather today.
As promised I will continue to share with you some of the things that I have been doing which starts with the following, my diet.I have been asked a lot about what it is that I have changed so read below for more information. It is healthy and so much better than what I was putting in before. It is focused towards plant nutrition and other supplements like chaga mushroom tea’s of which are reported to help colon cancer. Please note this was my diet from March through to August of which I then changed as a result of meeting a lovely chap called Dr Mathews of who is trained in Auryvedic medicines. I will write about exactly what this is in another post. As always my approach is to try anything and everything as who knows what might help. We are all different each and everyone of us so therefore being open minded and not afraid to try something (even if it did not work for someone else) in my opinion has got to be worth a shot.
Mig’s diet
 
Typical daily diet which includes lots of green leafy salads, crucifix vegetables and fruits. I avoid as much as is possible anything processed, starchy carbohydrates and sugars. Also condiments ie tomato sauce & mayonnaise as these sorts of things are normally high in sugar and salts. I limit my meat intake and try to keep to chicken or fish. Again where possible Organic is best as it’s good to keep toxins to a minimum. My main aim is to eat foods that will nourish my body and give it the tools to help heal rather than things that have zero nutritional benefit ie biscuits or crisps although I love them so much…….
 
Breakfast: 
 
Warm water & sliced lemon (gently way to kick start your systems after a nights sleep in particular your liver and kidneys helping to flush out toxins. It also activates your digestive system and stimulates blood flow to your intestines and helps prevent constipation. Have before food or other hot drinks) 
Weetabix (you could have fruits or yoghurt’s but I have these at lunchtime)
Supergreen plant food – full of phytochemicals essential to nourish your cells and help reduce side effects from chronic disease’s.
CBD cannabis oil – non psychoactive and essential for helping nourish your endocannibinoid system (the master controller of all systems ie immune system, respiratory system etc…..
Chinese herbal remedies – as advised by acupuncturist. Helps to lower blood pressure, increase energy and improve overall health.
 
Lunchtime:
 
Salad bowl – rocket leaves spinach, kale (avoid iceberg lettuce as little nutritional value) tomatoespeppers, walnuts etc…I do add a dressing as otherwise it can be dry and boring.
Greek yogurt smoothie with berries – has zero fat and good pro-biotic content which is vital for maintaining good stomach health (over 70% of your immune system is found in this area alone) Blackberries, blueberries, raspberries etc….
 
Dinner:
 
Green vegetables – over half a plate, normally spinach, broccoli, kale and carrots.
Meats – mostly try to avoid especially red meat. Lean organic chicken or fish 
 
Snacks:
  • Grapes
  • Oranges
  • Seeds
  • Nuts 

Drinks: 

I avoid where possible anything cold as your body spends a lot of energy increasing it’s temperature. This can slow the digestion process and cause indigestion. That said on a very hot day a cold drink can reduce your core temperature so it’s about choosing what your body requires weather depending.

  • Normal Tea
  • Korean Ginseng Tea
  • Chaga Mushroom Tea
  • Mushroom complex Tea

Supplements:

  • Cannabis oil
  • Super green food
  • Chinese herbal tablets 
  • Turmeric
  • Ginger root
  • Garlic
Have a happy, healthy day.

Hello from Miggy

Good Evening All,

Hope you are all keeping well and healthy.
It’s been a while since I last posted and to be honest it’s been too long. That said I have kept myself busy and continued to increase my knowledge and understanding as best I can so over the next few weeks there will be lots of new updates talking about health, well being, diet and of course my favourite body nourishment…….cannabis oil.
But firstly I will kick off with an update on my medical situation Since I last posted I have had 2 further scans, July and October. Mostly they were positive in that the July scan showed that only 2 of my lung nodules had grown marginally but everything else had stayed the same including my liver. The October scan results were just as good if not better – my lung nodules have all remained the same, no growth with my liver nodule showing marginal growth. So why I am happy when there has been marginal growth? Because there has been no further spread outside the existing 2 area’s, the first positive. The 2nd positive is that mostly I have had in real terms no growth only marginal and only on 3 of which is great considering I have over 20 in total. The 3rd positive is that I still feel well and so much so that the Oncologist I saw last week said that surgery to remove the liver nodule was a possibility. This was not the case before as
I was told that no surgeon would consider operating due to the number of nodules on my lung but as they now seem to be stable this opinion has changed. So great news and this helps keep me focused and I will continue doing all the things that have brought me to this point so far.
There is however one thing that I have changed and that is my diet. This was as a result of seeing an Auryvedic doctor of which came about due to friend recommending him. Really amazing stuff so I will write a separate post about this shortly so watch this space……..
As always lots of love & light,

Loving Chinese medicine!

Afternoon lovely people,
As previously mentioned, I have been seeing a fantastic Chinese doctor who has been kindly treating me with both accupuncture and herbal remedies.

The aim of my treatments with her is to improve my energy and vitality, making my whole body stronger, so that, when I start Western medical treatments, I will cope much better.

Does it work?

Well, for me so far it’s a BIG YES…….it does! I see her once a week and I find the accupuncture so relaxing.

Yesterday she said: ‘did you have a sleep?’  To which I replied: ‘yes’   – and she said: ‘I thought so, as you were snoring’. (It can’t be true, can it George?!)

Over all I feel much better, with lowered blood pressure, improved energy and an improved zest for life.

So, it’s definitely worth a try, as it’s good for all sorts of issues and most importantly you get to spend time with a caring lady, who speaks so much sense, it almost feels like counselling…. Love her 😉

Have a great rest of your day!

Information,

Cancer fighting: Keep up to date on clinical trials!

Given my recent diagnosis, I decided to do some research to find out if there
was a government site that provided information on clinical trials and there is.
You can find details on other sites such as The Royal Marsden, Cancer Research UK and NICE.

However, if you sign up to this site, once you have completed the registration process, you will automatically be kept up to date with trial options with regard to your specific condition.

This will enable you to have an understanding of what’s available and give you some questions to discuss with your oncologist at your next visit.

Really hope it helps! See link for further details – https://www.ukctg.nihr.ac.uk/

More great news about cannabis the cancer killer!

Hi All,

Lots being going on over the past couple of weeks what with both my boys having their birthdays and the Easter holidays – all of which has been great fun. I have, however, kept my nose to the ground and have a couple things to update you on about my favourite subject CANNABIS……….

‘Northern Ireland boy Billy first in UK to be prescribed medicinal cannabis ‘

This is truly a great story and I am so pleased for him and his family, as it has helped him enormously, in controlling his life threatening form of epilepsy.

It will also help lead the way in that it has now set a precedent and should enable others to benefit.
This will continue to add to the ever growing pressure that we must put on the government and other world leaders to carry out extensive studies in order to fully understand its true capabilities.

And then there was this…
‘US government has added a page on the use of cannabis and
cannabinoids to their official cancer advice website ‘

The National Cancer Institute, part of the US Department of Health,
now advises that ‘cannabinoids may be useful in treating the side
effects of cancer and cancer treatment’ by smoking, eating it in baked
products, drinking herbal teas or even spraying it under the tongue.

The official government site has a long list of medicinal uses of
cannabis, including: anti-inflammatory activity, pain relief,
anti-anxiety, stress relief, anti-tumor, antiviral activity and
relieving muscle spasms caused by multiple sclerosis and many, many
more.

The site goes on to talk about how cannabis has been proven to destroy
cancer cells in lab experiments. Some really positive news for those of us desperate to find a cure!

Check this out also for an understanding of how our endocannabinoid system works.

Reiki – Making the world a better place

Morning All,
Well, as you know I have been receiving and learning Reiki, which is another part of my holistic approach to physical wellness. But it’s more than that for me, as I have always had a spiritual interest too.

I say that I am not religious but spiritual, which means, quite simply, that I believe in a
higher self and power and that we are all intrinsically connected and
share energy. Heavy stuff, huh?
Not really, mostly relaxing, and I continue to meet so many genuine
lovely people who want to help and give, even when they themselves have little.

I have now completed my 2nd lesson and look forward to my 3rd. It’s literally a hands on type of learning, which is I think the best way. Straight in the deep end, no messing about.
My teacher, Kathy, is kind, patient and I have never met someone who is so selfless and genuinely just wants to help people in pain or who are suffering. During
my lesson I am learning how to give healing and have also performed my first physic surgery.

Just amazing stuff, really is.

If you asked me a year ago if I would be doing this kind of thing, I
would have probably answered ‘ NO’.

But there’s the thing – it all just happened and feels so natural, like I am finally where I am truly meant to be and thoroughly enjoying myself.

Have a happy day.

Love Migs X

 

Note from Alex: I really do believe that it’s this kind of sentiment which makes the world a much better place – and reason why so many of us are giving up our time and working so hard to fight for our family member and friend.

Thanks so much for everything you’re doing everyone – donations, charity events, fundraising – it is truly an amazing testament to the goodness of mankind!!

Big love xx

The Eastern approach

MESSAGE FROM MIGGY

Chinese medicine and acupuncture

I met with a lady last Friday who has practised Chinese medicine for over 40 years.

I had a consultation with her, where we discussed my medical history to date. She used my pulse to identify weak organs and checked my tongue for blood heath/vitality to start with.

She then explained that the Chinese believe in a holistic approach and that you need to treat the body as a whole – making it strong first, then targeting the specific area where the problems are.

The treatment she offers involves acupuncture and, if required, a combination of Chinese herbal remedies.

The aim is to re-align the energy flow in the body via acupuncture and strengthen your organs with the help of specific herbs.

I researched what I was given and it all seems to have a proven history of working really well. Let’s face it, it’s something which has been used by the Chinese for centuries, so there must be something good there.

In particular, one form of treatment is in phase 2 trials in America as it has been found to work well.

I am due for further acupuncture on Monday/Friday so will update you on how I get on. What I can say though is that I’ve been feeling much more energised since Friday, so I am very much looking forward to seeing her again!

Have a great week everyone!

Lots of Love Miggy xx

April is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month!

MESSAGE FROM MIGGY…

Bowel Cancer: Are you looking out for the symptoms?

Bowel cancer is the fourth most common cancer but the second biggest cancer killer. Around 110 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer every day, that’s someone every 15 minutes.

April is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month, with a national campaign targeted at raising awareness of the disease and those who are affected by it. As such I wanted to make as many people as possible take notice.

Lifting the taboo on bowel cancer

Bowel cancer, also known as colorectal cancer or colon cancer, is any cancer that affects the colon (large bowel) and rectum (back passage). It usually grows very slowly over a period of up to ten years before it starts to spread and affect other parts of the body.

Most bowel cancers start as benign, innocent growths called polyps that look like small spots or cherries on stalks, and most do not produce symptoms. However, one type of polyp, an adenoma, can become cancerous (malignant).

If you have any unusual signs or symptoms, however subtle, don’t put it off. Get medical advice as soon as possible and let’s start beating this disease.
Read it, inwardly digest it and please spread the word.  It is very much a curable cancer when caught in the early stages, however it is recognised that doctors struggle to read the warning signs in the under 50s and so a new process has been developed to help.

Please, please, please take note, if not for yourself, then for a family member, friend colleague, or the man on the street. I really don’t mind as long as we
get the message out there.

UPDATE FROM MIGGY: Reiki – start feeling better from the inside

Currently there is no definitive cure for cancer, we all know that. But I really do believe that amazing things are happening in the world of medicine and science to ensure that a breakthrough is only just around the corner.

In the meantime, as well as the more traditional treatments for the types of cancer there are, many turn to additional ways to enable their bodies to be well enough to fight this disease.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is the reason we’re alive.

It’s often used in conjunction with other cancer treatments as a method of spiritual healing and self-improvement – and it has been effective in helping the symptoms of many an illness. It also creates a beneficial effect, whether to enhance well-being, relieve side effects or promote recovery.

I am currently seeing a reiki healer twice a week. I am also learning to become a healer and learning level 1 which is 12 x 2 hour sessions.

Both the above come from two lovely ladies called Kathy and Collette from Bewitched in Rowlands Road.

They offer many services including readings, healing, healing courses, up cycled clothing and quirky ladies bags etc….

I would like to give them a mention as they have been a real support to me over the past 6-7 months and have not charged me a penny – plus they’ve plied me with lots of tea and coffee! I can’t thank them enough.

If you’d like to find out more, you can give them a call on 01903 206663 or visit the website at www.bewitchedreadingsandcrafts.co.uk
