Dear Ashlyn,
Thanks so much for responding.
I have been on the Budwig therapy since the week I discoverd the lump. One of the first books I read was Henderson's and it told the story of Johanna Budwig. That is my breakfast every day!
I also went to an alternative Dr. who prescribed a full range of supplements, minerals and vitamins which I take daily. Another alternative Dr. told me that I should get 200 minutes of aerobic exercise every week plus weight training and I am doing that as well. I feel great and, as I think I mentioned earlier, I have had no effects from radiation -  not even tired.

Unless someone can really make a case for it, I am not planning on doing any chemo.
Thanks again for your note.
Sue Ellen

Sounds like you're doing well, Sue Ellen.  I am also able to exercise 4 days per week for an hour each time and do a combo of cardio, push-ups and moderate weight training.  I also take vitamin D, cod liver oil, and effervescent Vit C daily.  Every little helps!
