Well Versed in CAM

There was a lively discussion about Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) in the IV room at the Rothfeld Center today. KK was right in the middle of the conversation chiming in with her thoughts. She warned others that chemo can make you feel really sick. She recommended getting colonics to get the toxins and "yuckies" out. She explained that detox baths (Epsom salt baths) can help as well. One of the ladies offered her a gluten-free cracker with raw almond butter. She said, "No, thank you," then explained that she is eating a vegan diet with no processed foods, not even gluten-free.

No 14-year-old should have to be well versed in things such as these. She has always had a good attitude about everything, but it was good to hear that she understands how important they are for her healing.
