Solo Traveler No Two

Unawatuna. Is this paradise? It’s strange how death or disaster creep up on you, how stealthily and randomly they pounce. This is the beach that the world was looking at with horror THAT unforgettable Christmas when the tsunami struck, shaking the axis of the earth to its core… I was there ten months before and, fortunately for me, not on the fateful day that the giant wave engulfed a big part of the Indian Ocean- and therefore lucky.
My ancestors the Ancient Geeks theorised about Goddess Luck or Fortuna to use her Latin name and tried to appease her.
I must say I felt a strange detachment a television viewer sometimes experiences in the face of such a deluge. I also felt lucky to have escaped the earthquake’s cruel Biblical force when I heard about the havoc it had caused. Lucky lady.
I am passionate about the island of Serendipity, beautiful Sri Lanka and like a pilgrim I returned six years later for a visit. On my second visit to Unawatuna beach that is depicted here I was told that 45 people had died that day on this piece of tropical paradise.
I feel even more lucky for surviving the stealthy cancer that can creep up the axis of your own body, your spine, life-weary and weak from man-fangled treatment.So far, so good.
During my second visit to Unawatuna, I sought a woman who had given me a massage 6 six years later in a wooden hut right on the beach. The hut was still there. Her neighbours told me she had gone to a funeral the afternoon I tried to see her. I was relieved. She was alive and well. Another lucky lady like me….


Solo Traveler one

This is me on a solo holiday to Sri Lanka. It was a year after diagnosis and I remember being on a drug called Zoladex. This drug causes a hormone imbalance so severe that at one point the estrogen marker on my blood analysis said zero(0). I think a lot of people would survive ( but not necessarily thrive) if this drug managed to suppress your ovaries indefinitely, but, alas. it doesn’t. After about 1.5 years of taking it, I felt weird and a routine test done privately showed that the lining of my womb was thick. All the oncologists looked worried I might sue and I had a 1000 euro biopsy done to test for cancer there. Luckily I was ok. I stopped the drug and went on natural progesterone cream to balance out my extremely disturbed hormones. Then the menopause came with physical exercise, yoga and a little bit of patience. I was 53. The natural progesterone was so effective that my periods had returned and were regular. 10 POINTS for this plant extract. It’s from yams. In Nigeria where they eat a lot of yams women have a lot of twins. I didn’t but I have a scan in my file showing two of my eggs one on each side refusing to descend because of the awful drug I had been on. Why did I agree to take it? To avoid chemo. Did I do well? So far and five years out it seems I made the right decision…

Is This Fruit Extract 10,000 Times Better Than Chemotherapy

Over a quarter of a century ago a study was performed on the seeds of the Soursop fruit, also known as graviola, which at that time demonstrated such amazing cancer-fighting potential, that those exposed to it within the conventional medical community looked upon it with complete incredulity.

Published in the Journal of Natural Products in 1996, Compound 1, one of five extracted from the seed of the graviola fruit, was found to be “selectively cytotoxic to colon adenocarcinoma cells (HT-29) in which it was 10,000 times the potency of adriamycin.”

Adriamycin is the trade name for the chemoagent doxorubucin and is known by the nickname “red devil,” due to both its deep red color and terrible side effects, which include life-threatening, even fatal damage to the cardiovascular system. This abject lack of “selective cytotoxicity” — the ability to kill only the cancer cells and…

Is this the magic bullet?

Maybe it’s international cutesie day…

“Is this the magic bullet?” This eye catching title has been used in America to promote a very impressive food supplement called BIOBRAN MGN3. The advertising campaign was put to an abrupt end by the FDA. Fortunately for the manufacturers of this patented product and the cancer survivors fortunate enough to come across it and can afford it, it works. But since breast cancer has been affectionately dubbed “a rich woman’s disease” the average patient concerned can afford it. It’s a rich bitch problem because the bagage and garbage that comes with the lifestyle can seriously damage your health. 50% fat cheeses, gratins, expensive cuts of meat more often that is good for you, maids to do your physical exercise for you…shall I go on?

Two days ago I read an article in the British newspaper the Independent about promising new research by a small team of cancer researchers in the UK investigating NK cells or killer cells. They form part of the immune system and wrestle with germs and rogue cancer cells. I couldn’t resist mentioning this product. As the label of the product says. it strengthens the entire immune system and does so in specific ways. The number of NK cells are increased and their activity is ENHANCED. Am I biased? You would be if you saw the good numbers suddenly fly off your blood analysis. There is a pleasant side to the high price – you only take it for three months and the effects are lasting. Expect to pay 350 euros a month for three months. Look at several websites to compare prices. I emphatically endorse it.

What’s in it? Rice bran with shiitake mushrooms treated together to ferment and patented by a Japanese company. Living in Cyprus, I am off the FDA radar. Also buy rice bran oil and use it in cooking. I do. Info online.

Turmeric is one the most thoroughly researched plants in existence today. Its medicinal properties and components (primarily curcumin) have been the subject of over 5600 peer-reviewed and published biomedical studies. In fact, our five-year long research project on this sacred plant has revealed over 600 potential preventive and therapeutic applications, as well as 175 distinct beneficial physiological effects. This entire database of 1,585 ncbi-hyperlinked turmeric abstracts can be downloaded as a PDF at our Downloadable Turmeric Document page, and acquired either as a retail item or with 200 GMI-tokens, for those of you who are already are members and receive them automatically each month.

Given the sheer density of research performed on this remarkable spice, it is no wonder that a growing number of studies have concluded that it compares favorably to a variety of conventional medications, including:

Fear, Bravery and HBOC

Pierce-Brosnan-2017848Fear, Bravery and HBOC.

Pierce Brosnan is every British woman’s rubacuore, Italian for heart throb. He is dishy (that’s British English for drop dead gorgeous) and he is faithful to whoever happens to be his current wife. His previous wife died from ovarian cancer and now her  daughter who is his stepdaughter.  I am sorry. Her grandmother, apparently also had the same fate. Looks like a case of genes plus lifestyle causing illness. Hereditary gene cancer is cruel.  It often appears while you are young . My favorite singer Anastacia got it.


I don’t know whether she has inherited the gene She has relapsed, perhaps not surprisingly as the toxic treatments render you an invalid. I wish her well and to everybody else who is reading this.


106214-originalThe material girl, Madonna, is not just a pop music phenomenon but also a poster girl for a proactive interest in one’s health. Read my other post on this classmate of mine, a 1958 native, titled Our Lady of the Morning Dew.
The icons for a reactive approach to serious health, on the other hand, are several and will be occupying my mind in the next few posts.
One of these survivor celebrities as I have just dubbed them is a British scientist called Jane Plant. She was stage 4 and given five months to live with a tumor in her neck but managed to survive by using her common sense. Nowadays she eats venison and it has to be not industrialised venison as she puts it. You can watch her being interviewed on youtube ( DDIbOW) I am ashamed to say that even before I was diagnosed I had her excellent book at home as well as several other classic health masterpieces but ignored the message it contains. Still got milk? Throw it out. Follow an Oriental diet which is low in dairy and can help you live to a hundred.Or do what grandma did in the mountain village all those years ago. Boil a hen when you are ill or when the hen is ill. (old Cypriot joke). Drink raw goat’s milk and pray that you don’t die of botulism. Even with germs it’s healthier than industrialized milk.In fact, the extra germs make it tastier.
I have known for a long time that no species on this planet drinks the milk of another species except us. I also add that we are the only ones who eat cooked food. Does cooking subtract from the natural properties of food. I AM AFRAID SO, especially if you overdo the cooking.
