Banish Blue Monday…

Another weekend has come and gone and as ever it has been full of fun and love. We visited our friends who we only see a few times per year. It’s not for the want of seeing them it’s just they are very busy people! After a thoroughly jolly time Bear and I headed off to use the facilities of a spa. We worked out, had a swim, steam and jacuzzi as well as a facial together. It was bliss and a great way to spend our Sunday.  Note to self must have more treatments together. It’s such a lovely way of maintaining closeness sharing time like that together.

On our return there were yet more deliveries waiting for me and I always get a little bit alarmed at the thought of what have I bought this time?! It’s amazing how quickly I forget. I have been ordering many new supplements that I have read about in a few books recently and in the process thought that a few may benefit me and also Pete. I am having a meeting this Wednesday with a specialist dietician so I will ask her thoughts on them before taking them. Once I have the low down I will share on here.

I have been preparing for the appointment by completing food diaries and divulging all the supplements and medication I currently take. The list is endless it feels like…

The thing with taking supplements is that you can get carried away. There is no denying that I feel great and would I feel great if I didn’t take these supplements? I know it is best to always get as many vitamins and minerals from actual food intake except for the obvious things such as vitamin D3 which unless you live in a sunny country and spend a great deal outside is needed in a supplement format.  It is possible however to get vitamin d form certain foods.

Here are some foods high in vitamin D;

Shitake and button mushrooms

surprisingly, the dried versions of shiitake mushrooms are high in vitamin D. This may be due to the fact that these mushrooms are great at sucking up sunlight. Shiitake mushrooms are also rich in B vitamins like B1 and B2. Make sure that you find mushrooms that have been dried in the sun, not by artificial means, in order to achieve the benefits of high vitamin D content.


A small, 3½ ounce portion of these high omega-3 containing fish will give you 90% of your recommended daily amount. Currently, it is recommended that people eat more of these oily fishes to infuse their bodies with the vitamins and omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFA’s) that the human body cannot produce on its own.


Sardines are one of the best foods sources of vitamin D. One small tin can of sardines will provide you with approximately 70% of your daily needs. These tiny canned fish are also a great source for vitamin B12, omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and selenium.



Eggs are another food that contains vitamin D in small amounts. Eating one egg daily will provide you with approximately 10% of your daily needs. I recommend eating free range organic farmed eggs from a local source if possible.


That said I still always have my eyes open and my ears close to the ground as you never know what could be the one thing that helps stop canSer such as modified citrus pectin which may prevent metastases. Hearing about these sorts of things with such bold statements stop me in my tracks and I can’t help but think well if it doesn’t do any harm then why not try?

Modified citrus pectin is derived from the pulp and rinds of citrus fruits which have been altered to produce shorter sugar chains. Thanks to these shorter sugar chains, the pectin is more easily absorbed through the intestinal tract and into the bloodstream. This has a mean ability to halt metastasis – the spread of cancer. In one study involving melanoma cells, MCP decreased tumour metastasis to the lung by more than 90%.Along with mopping up cancer cells MCP can also draw toxins and heavy metals from the body – often the underlying cause of disease. Well based on that snippet of information that has caught my attention and I wonder why I hadn’t heard of it before?

But as I say I have a list of about 5 supplements that have caught my attention lately and I will ask some advice before adding or alternating for some I already I take.  I don’t want to overload my body anymore than it already is.

I have today taken steps to booking to go to…. Switzerland! I am not off on another holiday but booking for a week at a treatment centre to receive GcMAF. After having received a lovely email from a patient who has just returned from there with nothing but positive comments I felt compelled to give it a go. The cost is currently less than having treatment in Germany at only 3000 Euros for the whole week plus hotel and flights. On checking out the data it seems it is very close to Lake Geneva and the airport is only about 40 minutes away. It won’t be until March but at least I know it is being booked. At least I get to see some of the world whilst travelling for treatment. There is always a bonus to every situation.

Today is apparently Blue Monday as it is classed the most depressing day of the year. I am unsure as to why as I feel that January has so much to look forward to. But if you are feeling blue here’s a little picture to cheer you up….



Light and Love.
