Fibroid Awareness Week 2017. Fibroid Awareness Week Fibroid Awareness Week
Eddie dont you think your stomach needs rest, when you are sleeping, your stomach is still digesting your dinner and hence, dont get enough rest. By fasting, your whole body gets rest... This rest period helps you rebuild functioning power and recover from the energy dissipation caused by hectic daily schedules and abusive living habits.
Most people think that food and drugs are the answer to their problems.They dont realize fasting gives physiological rest... Not everyone is a good candidate for fasting. Many factors need to be considered before a fast is undertaken. Not every condition will respond favourably to fasting.
Eddie, A wonderful thing about fasting is that it puts an interval between the behavior that you are accustomed to and the behavior that you aspire to. people find it difficult to change habits.But fasting brings your present lifestyle to an abrupt halt. It gives you an opportunity to decide how you are going to conduct your life afterwards. This enables you to make a break with your past and set off in a new, more positive direction.
fasting disciplines me. .. its good for fibroid tumors , back and neck problems.. you need not abstain from food completely Eddie... in the beginning it will be very difficult so you can drink juices in between... First time will be very taxing, the second time will be depressing but the third time onwards you will gain confidence and you will take it as a challenge.
After fasting, you tend to be very conscious about what you are eating, and why. Fasting heightens your awareness, as well as your appreciation for food. By fasting, we learn to eat with reverence.
There is no disadvantage if you fast once a week, Eddie.... but some people fast for continuous 4-5 days they end up with all kind of ulcers... but if fasting is done with the help of your doctor, it will do wonders to your health.
period late neg test and cant help but get a tummy ache after eating! Pregnant?!?
It's possible that you are pregnant, but personally I think you are probably not. You are most likely still not back to regular cycles after going off your birth control.
Usually pregnancy nausea is worst when your tummy is empty - NOT right after eating. Sometimes a few particular foods will make you sick, because they smell or taste different. But lots of other things can cause that too. In all three of my pregnancies, the first sign was my positive pregnancy test. The other symptoms don't show up until several weeks later.
Pregnancy symptoms, such as nausea, moodiness, skin changes, etc., are caused by the hormones. Your hormones are already all out of whack from the birth control you were on. Any "symptoms" you are experiencing are more likely due to the birth control hormones, not pregnancy. If you were pregnant enough for noticeable symptoms, you would also be far enough along to have a positive test.
I think at this point you need to just be patient while you wait for your body to get back to normal. If you don't want to get pregnant, use a barrier method of birth control. If you don't get your period for a while, you might want to do a test every few weeks or so just to reassure yourself, but it would be a waste of money to test every 3 days.
Once you do get back to normal, you might want to consider learning the Fertility Awareness Method (FAM) of birth control. This involves monitoring and charting your body's natural signs of fertility to figure out when you are fertile (able to get pregnant) and when you are not. During the fertile time, you abstain from sex or use barrier methods. This would not involve taking any pills or hormones, so there would be no negative side effects for your body. This is also very useful when you are ready to try to conceive, since you will know when your most fertile times are. If you are interested, read the book "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" by Toni Weschler.
Rare cancer was not diagnosed for a long time?
Receiving a diagnosis of ovarian cancer is difficult and life changing. Fortunately, medical advances have made treatments more effective. Women diagnosed in the earliest stages have a five-year survival rate of nearly 93 percent, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS).
Until recently, ovarian cancer was known as a "silent killer" because it usually wasn't found until it had spread to other areas of your body. But new evidence shows that most women may have symptoms even in the early stages, and awareness of symptoms may hopefully lead to earlier detection.
Early detection is important; still, only about 20 percent of ovarian cancers are found before tumor growth has spread beyond the ovaries. Your chance of surviving ovarian cancer is better if the cancer is found early.
Treatment of ovarian cancer usually involves a combination of surgery and chemotherapy.
In most cases, you'll want to have a gynecologic oncologist perform ovarian cancer surgery because they often have more training and experience with this type of operation.
After surgery, you'll most likely be treated with chemotherapy — drugs designed to kill any remaining cancer cells. The initial regimen for ovarian cancer includes the combination of carboplatin (Paraplatin) and paclitaxel (Taxol) injected into the bloodstream (intravenous administration). Clinical trials have found that this combination is effective, though researchers are continually looking for ways to improve on it. A more intensive regimen has recently been shown to improve survival in women with advanced ovarian cancer by combining standard intravenous chemotherapy with chemotherapy injected directly into the abdominal cavity through a catheter placed at the time of the initial operation. This intra-abdominal infusion exposes hard-to-reach cancer cells to higher levels of chemotherapy than can be reached intravenously.
Lifestyle and home remedies
Good nutrition is especially important for people undergoing cancer treatment. But eating well can be difficult for a time if your treatment includes chemotherapy or radiation therapy. You may feel nauseated or lose your appetite, and foods may taste bland or unpleasant. You may find that the last thing you want to do is plan meals.Even so, eating well during cancer treatment can help you maintain your stamina and your ability to cope with the side effects of treatments. Good nutrition may also help you prevent infections and remain more active.
Remember these strategies for eating well when you don't feel well:
* Eat protein-rich foods. Foods high in protein can help build and repair body tissues. Choices include eggs, yogurt, cottage cheese, peanut butter, lean meat, poultry, fish, beans and lentils.
* Keep an open mind about the foods you might eat. Something that is unappealing today might taste better to you next week.
* When you do feel well, make the most of it. Eat as many healthy foods as you can. Prepare meals that you can easily freeze and reheat. Also look for low-fat frozen dinners and other prepared foods.
* Pack calories into the foods you eat. For example, spread butter, jam or honey on bread. Sprinkle foods with chopped nuts.
* Eat smaller amounts of food more frequently. If you can't face the thought of a large meal, try eating small amounts of food more often. Keep fruits and vegetables handy for snacking.
Even if you don't feel well, try to stay physically active. A regular, short walk or climbing the stairs can keep your muscles from deteriorating due to lack of use. Exercise can also help prevent fatigue and depression and reduce anxiety.
In addition, activities that require repetitive movement, such as swimming, can produce a mental state similar to that achieved with meditation. The same is true of yoga and other stretching exercises.
I'm sorry it's so long but I wanted to make sure you have a fighting chance. your attitude is good, move on & fight.
