🌸 For many who have undergone a mastectomy after a breast cancer diagnosis, questions always arise as to what options are available to return to 'some normalcy' going forward. I say 'some normalcy' because after a breast cancer diagnosis, nothing ever remains the same after such an experience.
However, there is hope to living a fulfilling life as long as there is valid and evidence-based information regarding this very important issue, and this is where my next amazing guest comes in.

🌸 Terri Coutee is the founder and director of Diep C Foundation. Patients across the world seeking information about options for breast reconstruction as part of their breast cancer treatment, utilize the Foundation for this purpose where she also shares her successful journey (as a breast cancer survivor) through breast cancer surgery and reconstruction.

07/15/2021

A silent killer it is. High blood pressure is the world's leading killer which can be prevented, mostly by reducing dietary sodium, and treated with safe and affordable medications.

πŸ“Š The stats have it that for every death prevented, about two heart attacks are prevented in addition to strokes, kidney failure, dementia, and more.
Sodium reduction + hypertension treatment can prevent 3 million early deaths annually. Lowering blood pressure can save millions of lives!

πŸŽ¬πŸŽ™οΈ This is why Cancer Convos with Grace B. empowers and informs both patients and caregivers because as one who was once diagnosed with high blood pressure at the onset of my cancer journey, and which had apparently triggered the "divine fall" (detailed in my memoir) had I not been advised about this, I would not have known. Thankfully, it is now well-controlled after revamping all necessary lifestyle departments.
πŸ—£οΈ Nevertheless, we will continue to share this scary health issue.

So, in a nutshell, eliminating stress (not easy, based on all that occurs around us daily), getting regular physical activity, eating a healthy diet, being particular about our overall nutrition, and reducing air pollution (our environment), can make a huge difference.

Hypertension is a disease. You have the choice to either treat it with medication or not.
Regardless of which choice you may make, do check your blood pressure as often as you can so you know what you may or may not be dealing with because, when it hits, it is fast and furious.

⚠️ FYI: Know that having low blood pressure is equally not good.

Does drinking lemon πŸ‹ water first thing in the morning πŸŒ… have benefits?
Definitely!
Here is why.

πŸ‹Detoxification: flushes out toxins and aids lymph flow.
πŸ‹Clear skin: increases hydration and promotes a healthy glow.
πŸ‹Prevention of kidney stones: lemon juice contains citrate which binds urinary calcium thereby preventing the formation of kidney stones.
πŸ‹Lemon pulp is fiber and is a probiotic pectin which is great for digestion and cleansing of the colon.

So, make sure to have your daily intake of a slice of fresh lemon πŸ‹ in warm water. Extremely beneficial and I highly recommend. βœ…πŸ’―

FYI:

🎬 One of the very salient points raised during my FB Live show with Carolyn was addiction to pain-killers; during and after our cancer treatments. The pains were unbearable and most times unmanageable as severe bone-pains, migraines, and body aches occurred incessantly. There were good days, when we got a bit of a breather, but when the bad ones showed, one literally wanted to die.

For Carolyn, she almost became addicted to Oxycodone (used to treat moderate to severe pain); it made her numb, put her in a happy place as she performed her usual routines as career woman, wife, mother, and daughter. However, when she saw she was asking for too many refills and anxiety and panic attacks set in when she was running low, she had to be intentional about the troubling issue and wean herself off it, thanks to the timely assistance of church and family.

For me, it was morphine which I adamantly refused to take anymore of, and fought the excruciating pains with all the might I could garner. We are not called warriors for nothing. It was no mean feat, but thank God, I succeeded.
It is so easy to β€˜pill-pop’. STOP πŸ›‘

Now. The operative word here is β€˜intentional’.
That is what we were. Know your vulnerabilities, your weak points. Pray your subconscious speaks to you and if you are not capable enough to handle it on your own, DO speak to your doctors and/or confide in someone close.
Addiction to any medication is death. The stats exist.

Happy Follow Friday, Grace! Thanks for being an active member of WEGO Health and inspiring us with Cancer Convos.
IT CAN BE VERIFIED.. Ma'am Grace Bassey, I've known you as an award winning advocate and fighter against Cancers. Please what would you advice on the case below of a woman with advance Breast Cancer needing support..? For several weeks, a lady receiving treatment at the University College Hospital, IBADAN has been unsuccessfully trying to get me on phone. She finally did today and I asked her to put it in writing via Whatsapp and her FULL CONSENT for me to share her case. Which she did. Here's her story... "Good evening sir, Please I am Emonyon Rosemary from Edo state. I've been battling with breast cancer for the past 3years. I've taken many Courses of Chemotherapy and dosage of Radiotherapy. Currently in UCH Ibadan, Radiotherapy Ward. Emonyon Rosemary. Treatment is expensive. We have spent all we have. Yet I was told this morning that it’s spreading to my lungs and bones, and that I still need to continue Chemotherapy/Radiotherapy to see how it can help prevent further spread. Now I have no helper anymore.😭😭😭 Help me. ZENITH BANK 2087531051 Emonyon Rosemary God almighty will bless you with long life and in good health for all my sister told me about you. It gave me small hope." My thoughts I really wish we can get anyone or foundation who would not send her money but PAY DIRECTLY INTO THE HOSPITAL ACCOUNTS FOR ALL HER TREATMENT. That will make me remove her account number immediately from this post. Lucky enough, I am sure there are lots of doctors and an associate professor of yours in UCH. They can be used to verify this specific case. The lady told me there is no metastasis to the brain as at today. Friends, I believe we are mostly for the support of the weak amongst us. Just they way we are weak and being helped by God in certain areas of our lives. Let it Thank you.

Cancer ravages body and mind but in any fight against Cancer the most critical battle ground is the mind. I learned this from Grace Bassey.
