Lotus, nine days is awesome! You can go the distance! How wonderful that your tests came back negative. My best friend discovered similar lumps about a year and a half ago. She wasn't as blessed because she had lymphomic cancer. It has been a rough ride for her. I'm trying to gently share some of the health benefits of mc, but seeing is believing so..... Hey, have you read the book "The Maker's Diet"? I found it super informative on health and toxins etc. Life cahanging to say the least.The only reason I bring it up is that it has begun to change the way my husband thinks about food. He is very healthy as well....has been within 5 pounds of his highschool weight for 35 years...but time has a way of mirroring all of our habits good and bad in our faces. Anyway...just wanted to thank you for sharing your journey and encourage you to keep on cleansing. I think it showed a huge amount of willpower to cook for others and stand true to your convictions!!! Way to go!!!!
