Gwone. That’s the word my husband uses when something disappears or leaves. It’s from the powerful play The Syringa Tree by playright Pamela Gien. It’s also the word I now use to describe my ovarian tumor.
Last week I got a call from my doctor confirming that the ovarian tumor that I’ve had for almost a year has disappeared. While the doctors and nurses don’t seem shocked and amazed, I am. So I started thinking about how this miracle could have happened. I’ll never forget the moment I said to myself shortly after being diagnosed, “I’m going to experiment and see if I can get rid of this thing.” Although I have no empirical evidence of what ultimately led to its departure, here are the few things I consciously included in my experiment:
- Expressing my creative side. As I mentioned in my Top 10 of 2010 blog, I found out ovarian tumors are related to stagnant creative energy (if you believe in that hocus pocus, which I do). So I decided it was time for me to start expressing my creative side more often. Of course that was the beginning of my blog.
- Taking a glutathione accelerator. Glutathione is the master anti-oxidant and it’s the destroyer of oxidative stress and free radicals (which contribute to the onset of cancer). I started taking MaxOne™ (formerly MaxGXL®) in September. I’ve noticed other tremendous health benefits since taking it, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it were a contributing factor.
- Meditating and practicing visualization. I started joining my mom’s regular meditation groups and whenever I thought of it, I would practice visualizing my tumor disintegrating into fine dust then vanishing. Poof!
The doctors confirmed it wasn’t a cyst and that it was a tumor (they checked a few times just to make sure). They were planning surgery in a few years when it got big enough to take out. So, what was it? What made it go away? I can’t be sure. But, in any case, now it’s gwone.
