Dark Clouds Lingering

Just a day after I proclaimed good times for me, I had a very unpleasant episode yesterday late afternoon. While I was midway into my enema, I was coughing profusely while lying down. All of a sudden, I coughed out some cartilage like substance. I quickly went to the bathroom to see what it was. Just like in Mexico, the jelly like substance was stained with some blood. I am not sure if it was a good thing or not. Subsequently, I also coughed out more blood clots, much more than in Mexico. After that, I felt my chest a little compressed and uncomfortable. The first thing I need to do is to prevent bleeding (if any). So I tried not to cough so much and started to drink some Camomile tea. I also skipped my dinner and only ate oats and drank the Hippocrates soup only.

When I retired to bed last night, my chess was still feeling uncomfortable. I also had some difficulty swallowing my saliva for I felt my throat was full. Slowly I drifted into sleep. When I woke up this morning, I was still coughing a little and there seems to be some remnants of some blood clots. If fact, I am still coughing with blood stained phlegm throughout the day. I am still feeling a little uncomfortable around my chest area and I also noticed a little pain as well.

Just before I posted today's post, I received a called from the sister-in-law of Joanne, a cancer patient that passed away earlier this year. She told me her younger brother has just been diagnosed with stage 3 nose cancer. He is 40 years old and will be starting his radiation therapy soon. Of course, I reserve my comments on his brother's radiotherapy treatment. She has asked me to meet her brother to introduce the Gerson diet to him. I suggested that the meeting be held after his brother complete his treatment. Just this three days, I have already heard two cancer cases from people I know. I guess some people only learn when they are sick. Wouldn't that be a little too late?


  1. Sometimes life's like that. One cannot blame this and that. The important thing is to live it as best we can.

    Hope you get better and be gentle when you speak to your friend with nose cancer.

    People need love...not what should have been.

    We can only thank God for each day we have and if its time to go home, we will leave with no regrets.

  2. Actually, my sick message is for healthy people out there.

    When was the last time you paused your life for a moment to give priority to your health? When was the last time you had a full body checkup?

    Don't be like me or this nose cancer friend. It's still not too late for you.

  3. In my opinion you should drop the niacin till the bleeding stops. Niacin open or enlarges the blood vessels. This can make bleeding worse. I think you are having a healing reaction. I bet it is a worry for you.

  4. Thanks for your suggestion. I have stopped taking niacin for almost three months now since I noticed blood in my phlegm.
