One of the worst parts of fighting cancer is having to explain the level of pain you’re in. How do you explain that excruciating pain to someone who has never experienced it? I remember they wouldn’t prescribe me anything stronger if my pain wasn’t higher than level 6 or 7. What was that supposed to mean? I always felt like my pain was beyond level 1000! The nurses and the doctors advised me to seek all-natural alternatives that would ease the pain but not get in the way of treatment, and they gave me a flyer with the details of a support group at the hospital.
All their other advice was crap but introducing me to the support group was the best thing they could have done for me. I was a grumpy cancer patient, I was going through the illness alone, and I needed a helping hand more than I’d like to admit it.
On my first session, they hit the nail right on the head when they asked me to introduce myself and to try to describe the level of pain I was in. I guess it was that obvious. The minute I started describing it, the other people in the room started to add more to my description to make sure they were understanding it right, and it was like finding people who finally spoke my language! They were also the ones who told me the doctors were right about the all-natural alternatives, which is why they drank organic Chaga tea every day or what people called the “anti-cancer Chaga.” It helped the body detox and it also had amazing anti-inflammatory properties that helped with the pain.
I bought my first pack of Chaga Earth tea bags right after the first group session, that’s how much I trusted their opinion! The results weren’t immediate, but within a couple of weeks, I began to feel improvement.
