Yes God is GREAT!. He does heal us but we can also heal ourselves thats why he made every plant for us for healing.
When i was going through the tests at the hospital, i was beside myself, and we always think the worst. One of the nurses had said to me that she had CIN2/3 ten years ago and they treated with the leep and she has been all clear since. She said to me that i was fortunate that the Dr's are aware that i had CIN2/3. and that they would not let it get to that stage of cancer. They were going to montior it and get rid of it. When i had the leep done th results can back as there was still some showing that the margin was involved. That really caused me concern as i was scared that that would get worse. The gyno who did the leep was not concerned as he said that is why he really burnt quite a bit after the leep proceedure just in case of any left there that he missed. In other words the price sent to the lab obviously showed that there was some left behind, but that was burnt away and the lab wouldnt be able to test that. I then waited an anxious 6 months to the next colposcopy, which involved a pap and thin prep. (thin prep is suposed to be far more accurate).
It can be all clear as i told you. Negative for any CIN at all.
Another thing that i was taking in my diet was the occassional glass of cranberry juice, maybe 2 a week, once or twice a week i was taking a product called Selenium ACE. Which is vitamins a,c,e, and selenium which is a free radical scavanger, have heard one of the most potent antioxidants. It is made by Nutra-life and as i am not sure what country you are in, there website is www.nutralife.com.au Maybe other brands make it, not sure.
I was also taking a procuct called Green Food which has such a large variety of green plants/vege's in it you wouldnt be able to eat that amount. it is an excellent addition to anyones diet. If you cant get these i would be happy to help and send them from here in Australia to you.
I think i told you the last email the foods really good for helping get rid of CIN etc;. Just think the richer and usually brighter the color of the fruit or veg the better it is for you. Think of Blueberries, they are great and you can buy them frozen in the supermarket. Carrots, Pumpkin they are bright, capsicum. I have heard the brighter the better. Red cabbage. Beetroot(Red), Blueberries(Blue Purple), Tomatoes(Red), Grapes (Red/Purple), All the berries are great. Sweet Potato (OrangeRed) Paw Paw or Papaya(Bright Yellow ). You can see the pattern here with the bright colors. Potato, turnip not as good, look at the color. Dont forget to get heaps of green into you. Grab some fresh spinache and parsley. i was eating parsley raw and spinache raw sometimes too. Grab some in your fingers and rub it and you will see the green come out, that is the good stuff the chlorofyl you should have. Grow you own parsley and spinache in pots if you have too. I was buying tabbouli from the supermarket and eating that too as it is high in parlsey and has some tomato. If you eat garlic thats good too.
Grape juice is good too, once again think of the colors. The brighter, deeper and more intense the color the better.
Let me know how you go with your tests, I will keep you inmy thoughts and prayers too. Think positive okay and remember that the Dr's see this evey day and they are not goin to let your CIN get to the cancer stage, if they have t do another leep they will.
Take Care and God Bless
