April is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month!


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



UPDATE FROM MIGGY: Cannabis oil – the cancer killer?

You may or may not have seen the news in the press about cannabis and the masses of positive effects that its oil is believed to have in fighting cancer.

Only a couple of days ago, the news hit the headlines about a boy who made a miraculous recovery from cancer after his mother gave him some cannabis oil.

While some believe it can shrink tumours, others feel that the plant can at the very least alleviate many of the horrific side effects of this vile disease. And let’s face it, when you’re in this kind of boat, any lifeline is a more than welcome prospect!

I am currently taking a product from a company called Cannawell called Hemp Pure 6x Strength Organic Cannabidiol – with black cumin seeds & frankincense oil added.

It has many benefits and I believe it does help in addition to other things, such as an antioxidant filled, healthy diet and reiki. What this combination of treatments can provide is a holistic approach to mind, body and soul.

I am also seeing a Chinese herbalist doctor on Friday, as I discussed apricot kernels with her, which have a ‘seek and destroy’ type effect on cancer cells.

There’s certainly a lot to be said for looking into holistic remedies and treatments for cancer sufferers to complement the more traditional methods.

So, keep an eye on the website to find out more about the variety of treatments that I am trying in my bid to win this war!
