What is COWDEN’s Syndrome anyway? And why is beating it so important?
I am a full time mom, school teacher, and medical consultant. I am a post mastectomy, breast cancer survivor. I am also down a uterus and 2 ovaries since my diagnosis. I have a spleen that is questionable – but we are hanging onto that for now! I also work full time keeping my family of three as healthy as can be so what we have the strength we need to work on “beatingcowdens.” That’s a LOT of full time work, which is why I need LOTS of energy!
My daughter, now 10, is a delight. She does well is school, an when she’s not behaving as every preteen does on occasion, she is busy doing really well in school, reading, swimming, talking to friends, and generally being fun to be with. She unfortunately, or fortunately – I guess its a perspective thing – suffers with food allergies to gluten, dairy and soy.
While her medical history is complex and includes over 10 surgeries, the need to keep her on a pure, clean diet that developed when she was just a baby has likely contributed to the physical strength she has used to endure her challenges. Her restricted diet also caused my husband and I to reevaluate the foods in our home, and to clean up our own diets. Health benefits for all!
My daughter and I are the only ones medically diagnosed with this wretched syndrome that causes benign and malignant tumors all over the body, as well as all sorts of other mischief. My husband, although not diagnosed, also “suffers.” And while he is our biggest ally, our strongest cheerleader, and our best friend, he is also a stress eater.
About 2 years ago, during a stretch where there were 4 surgeries for my girl and I in a 5 month span – my hubby ballooned to his highest weight ever. After an introduction to nutritional cleansing, he lost over 50 pounds, dropped 2 medications, and has remained a much healthier version of himself.
Watching the benefits he experienced, and always looking for a new way to gain strength and energy, my daughter and I joined in on the nutritional cleansing, not for weight loss, but for health, and strength. The results have been amazing, and we have found a new, valuable tool to help us as we work on “beatingcowdens.”
