Topic: Living Differently
Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed the incidence of ages associated with CC? Of course, this is not a hard and fast rule and some people are far younger, but I see so many 60ish people having dealt with this.
This is not just a rhetorical question. As the daughter of 2 parents that both passed within the last 18 months, both at age 61 (inconceivable until last August) , I am starting to feel quite proactive about my health. I am 39 and I too have digestive troubles. I have changed my diet about 12 times, getting rid of dairy, then wheat, meat, then adding fish back in, adding vegetables, eating more alkaline foods. Could there be incidences within families?
Do we have any nutritionists in the audience or others concerned for their digestive systems, or their family members and wanting to make changes?
I have seen what CC/bile duct cancer can do to a person and how quickly and am ready to stand on my head, eat seaweed and do just about anything to find a healthier path.
I would appreciate any ideas or suggestions. I want to empower myself and loved ones with knowledge. I am also considering having some medical testing and think I know where to begin, but it's a murky subject.
Thanks for reading this one. I need some direction. -ljg
