I’m going to start this article by saying, this isn’t your typical you should buy this product because… This really happened to me and it wasn’t fun. I’ll also mention that I am NOT a doctor and that I am just sharing my story.
For some time now, I have been having stomach cramps. No biggie, I blamed it on being a woman. However, every month, the cramps seemed to get more and more intense. The pain became intolerable, I wasn’t sleeping at night and I knew it was time to see a doctor. Why do we wait so long?
I went to my regular PCP and she said it was a Urinary Tract Infection or UTI. She thought the cramps may be because of my ovulation cycle and that even though I had not had these pains before, maybe somehow my body has changed, and I am now feeling these pains. I took the prescription she prescribed, and it went away. The following month, it started back up. I scheduled an appointment with my OBGYN this time and explained everything all over again and gave her the breakdown of what the PCP had said. She too checked and said it sounds like a UTI. After a short time of me convincing her that I wanted to do extra testing, she decided to schedule an ultrasound. It was going to take a few weeks to get in, so meanwhile, I am in the worse pain I have felt.
I took these few weeks to change. Change my food. Change my supplements. Change my mindset.
Again, I am not a doctor, I am just sharing my story. I pulled out my plant-based whole food cookbooks and got to cooking. I began eating more plants, and I felt really good immediately. I also had the Healing Trilogy: Mind, Body and Soul supplements from HB Naturals, and I pulled them out and began taking them every morning and night. The final and most important thing I changed was that I began praying every morning and night. I started to picture the doctor walking in and telling me everything is okay and that I am healthy.
The day comes for the ultrasound and we do it. I’m kind of excited because I just want to know the results already. Maybe the right word is anxious. The doctor comes in and has an extremely worried look on her face, not like how I had imagined in my prayers. She said I have a cyst that she’s worried about and thinks it may be cancerous. She’s going on and on about the cyst being on my left ovary… and at this point she’s using words I have never heard. I ask her to repeat it all because I didn’t understand. She tells me I should have bloodwork done and this will tell whether it’s a concern or not. We do the bloodwork, and off to Austin, TX it goes. I have to wait a whole week for the results which she plans on calling me with.
That was the longest week of my life.
I kept on eating plant-based, kept taking the Healing Trilogy twice a day, and prayed a little bit more.
Almost a week later, I finally received The Call.
“Hello Ms. Veronica, we have your results back. Your cyst is low risk for cancer, and we are not worried. You have another UTI, this can be caused by cyst on your ovaries. We are going to prescribe you some medications that help with reducing your chances of getting cyst and we’ll see you in 6-8 weeks for another ultrasound. Again, no cancer to worry about.”
Thank you God!
I learned a lot from this experience. Take care of yourself. Eat foods that make you feel good. Do things that make you feel good.
