They Think I have Neurofibromatosis

I live with 4 separate brain tumors. They estimate I have what’s called “neurofibomarosis”, which is just a fancy way of saying I have a genetic disorder that causes brain and spinal meningioma tumors.

Luckily I just have brian tumors. The only way to know for sure, though, is through a biopsy but I don’t need the risk and toxins of opening my skull. I just do what the research shows as ways to stunt and prevent cancer and tumors growth. Hence, my passion for holistic health and nutrition.

One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned is that health is internal. Not just numbers on a scale or piece of paper. Had I followed the ER and urgent care doctors advice, to take pain pills, and not fallen and hit my head in 2010, I’d never had received an MRI or found the tumor.

My surgeon said I most likely wouldn’t have woken up one day soon if it were not fall and hitting my head due to the size of the giant mass taking over my brain.

If you feel as if something is wrong regwrdless of someone telling you “you’re fine” without looking deeper, push to get the testing done to gain clarity rather than suffering both mentally and physically like I did believing I was “normal” and that’s what I had to look forward to the rest of my life. 💚✌️
