I Have a Secret

Verse of the week:
Isaiah 53:5 "By His stripes we are healed." In 1 Peter 2:24, Peters says, "By whose stripes you were healed."  This means you WERE already healed over 2,000 years ago when Jesus died on the cross and bore all these diseases for you.

I have a secret I want to share with you.  After the initial shock of learning I am a 26 year metastatic breast cancer survivor, the next question most people ask is, "What's your secret?"  First is faith, second is to follow your doctor's advice while at the same time following your own intuition, and the next little tidbit of info I give is about CoQ10 which falls in the "nutrition", doing what you can regarding your health, diet, and excercise" category.  So, my focus today is on what I have felt has been the one secret weapon I have used in waging my own war. 

Twenty-six years ago when I was in post-op recovery following my mastectomy, the nurses told my parents about CoQ10 - they referred to it as a miracle nutrient. Of course, my parents immediately began the hunt for this vitamin and were ecstatic to have found it at the local Sun Harvest.  I started off taking 50 mg every day and increased it to 100 mg several years ago.  It is the one supplement that I make sure I never run out of and have never left home without.  Yes, that means vacations and even one night weekend getaways.  Wherever I go my CoQ10 follows. I am absolutely convinced that it has played a large role in my recovery and victory over metastatic cancer.  Included below is an attachment to one of the many articles online that delve into the benefits of this supplement.   

As a disclaimer, I do not own stock in CoQ10, and while I do not endorse nor give medical advice, I do want to tell you what has worked for me.  And there are many other important vitamins and nutrients which I will go into more detail on later.  Please read below, do your own research, and talk to your doctor as to whether or not this nutrient might be one effective tool in your treatment plan.
