Bad News That Could Have Been Worse

I've had this spot on my face, I lovingly refer to it as my "Old Lady mark" for almost two years I believe. Last week out of the blue my dad messaged me and asked if I had had it checked. I responded that I had just had my yearly skin check in November and briefly asked about it and it was of no consequence. My dad was pretty insistent I go have it checked. I called the doctor and surprisingly they had an opening a couple of days later so I scheduled an appointment for last Friday.

The doctor didn't act too concerned, thankfully or I would have spent the weekend in fear, but wanted to do a biopsy, so we did. Yesterday I received a call that my "Old Lady mark" actually was of consequence now. They told me the spot they removed was Melanoma In Situ. My heart sank and my breath caught.

They went on to explain it was very superficial, contained, and treatable. But it did require further treatment. I have an appointment scheduled with a Plastic Surgeon to have a centimeter in diameter and in depth removed in a couple of weeks.

Jesus, Essential Oils, and a Right Mindset

When the call came, I was actually taking a hot, Epsom Salt bath with a few drops of Vetiver. This is one of my favorite ways to practice self-care. I know myself, well--thank you introspectivity. Anyway, I know myself well enough to know that the calming and grounding effects of the Vetiver essential oil bath kept me calm during the initial phone call. And the subsequent phone call once I started processing everything; you're welcome nurse Glenda♥

I also know all those years I worked on my mind using affirmations and the Scriptures came heavily into play and will continue to do so.

The Next Step

The next steps are to follow my doctor's advice, keep my mind in a healthy and happy place, and to even more intentionally use the powerful benefits of essential oils, especially Frankincense--amazing for skin, there are even skin cancer studies using Frankincense, Vetiver--amazing for my emotions, mind, and mood, and Ningxia Red--so amazing for my body. I will also become a faithful sunscreen wearer and shade seeker.

And prayer, I remind myself, this wasn't a surprise to God. If you've got room in your prayers for me, I'd appreciate a mention.

Ningxia Red

1. The Ningxia Wolfberry provides ample antioxidants to strengthen the immune system. Antioxidants permeate cell walls and attack free radicals before they damage the DNA of the cell nucleus.*
2. Antioxidants of this berry fight arteriosclerosis and atherosclerosis – aiding the circulatory system – including the heart.*
3. The Ningxia Wolfberry is powerful in helping the liver function properly. The liver is one of the most vital organs in the body – it's our cleansing machine.*
4. Aids the eyes, cataracts, glaucoma, and visual acuity. This berry contains a complete array of antioxidant carotenoids including beta-carotene and zeaxanthin. In fact, the Ningxia Wolfberry has the highest source of carotenoids in all known foods. Beta-carotene is best known as a nutrient for the retina.*
5. The main constituent of the wolfberry is Lycium Barbarum Polysaccharide (LBP), according to studies in China LBP, can aid patients to rebuild their white blood cell count, enhancing phagocytes and the activity of natural killer cells, which bind to renegade cells, as well as improving major classes of T-cells. "increase the antibody reaction to the T-cell antigen".*
6. Acetone extract from the Ningxia Wolfberry inhibits gene mutation. Some scientists say the fruit is a good supplement to aid patients with liver cancer. Also, studies show objective regression of cancer in patients with malignant melanoma, renal cell carcinoma, colorectal cancer, lung cancer, and others. Results also indicated LBP may be used as an adjuvant in the bio-therapy of cancer.*
7. Minerals & vitamins act as enzymes and co-factors in the digestion process.*
8. Studies on seniors in China produced amazing results (many people live beyond 100 years of age in wolfberry growing areas). Increases in Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD) and hemoglobin were found in serum in all participants. In other words wolfberry "may help slow the aging process".*
9. Protects against the free radical attack on the mitochondrial DNA – our energy furnaces inside each cell. Antioxidants fight against mitochondrial destabilization.*
10. It is important that cell walls maintain their malleability for nutrients to cross this membrane. The free radical scavengers found in the Ningxia Wolfberry strengthen the cell wall and support efficient transport of flavonoid nutrients into the cell and waste products out of the cell.*
11. Can aid in lowering blood sugar and in many tests stabilizes blood sugar.*
12. Strengthens the brains neuro-transmitters against pervasive free radical activity, thus fighting against dementia and other forms of memory loss.*
13. Promotes a sense of well-being, and has had noticeable results in tests, which reduces stress and anxiety. The tissues of the body (including the brain) are assisted in avoiding oxidative stress.*
14. Has a B-vitamin complex essential to the body. In addition, these vitamins are vital for converting food to energy.*
15. Cells need to communicate, esp. those in the brain and nervous system. The synaptic responses are protected & fortified by the same polyphenols (flavonoids) that this berry uses to protect itself.*
16. Provides powerful anti-fungal and anti-bacterial action because it contains solvetivone (an amino acid). Properties in the food fight viruses – it's anti-viral.*
17. Reduces pain caused by inflammation because the berry contains beta-Sitosterol, a remarkable anti-inflammatory.*
18. The Ningxia Wolfberry is high in protein (more than whole wheat), an essential cellular building block.*
19. The Ningxia Wolfberry, unlike most berries, contains natural Vitamin E – a restorative antioxidant with too many health benefits to list here.*
