Been a while since I updated on my Multiple Myeloma.
This is the 9th year after my Stem Cell Transplant. I have been taking only Ayurvedic Medication for the last 4 years.
There are other detailed posts in the past where I wrote all about in detail.
I am continuing to take Circumin, Ashwagandha , Satavari , Tinaspora Cordifolia as per the advise of my Ayurveda Doctor.
I also take few Allopathy medications like Folvite ( for better absorption of Iron), Renerve (for peripheral Neuropathy), Antoxid HC (Multivitamins) and Feburic 20 (to regulate Uric acid) .
Apart from the above , I also have been following the lifestyle prescribed by ‘Natural Lifestyle’ , since 4 months. I have lost some weight due to the restricted diet. I do feel healthy otherwise. Just that I can’t physically exert myself a lot. Able to manage quite well even during the lock-down period doing all household chores with support from hubby and son 🙂
I did the routine Blood tests 2 months ago (just before the lock-down) and the reports say that all is well.
However, it is 1 year 4 months since I did the Bone Marrow test. I feel it may not be necessary as I feel good and my routine tests including Serum Globulin levels were normal in the recent tests.
I am also back to work in spite of all the restrictions and risks.
I am dependent on my driver whenever . Doing my best to ensure that my Driver is also healthy. Provided Masks, Face Shield, Sanitizer , Liquid soap and gave him instructions on maintaining social distance and washing hands frequently.
Getting used to co-exist with the C-virus. With a little care and attention it should be possible to deal with it.
Harvesting curry leaves in my tiny garden :
I was all the while assuming that the curry leaf plant should be allowed to grow as much as possible before we start harvesting the leaves. I recently learnt that the branches should be cut frequently so as to encourage further growth of new stems.
So, I decided to cut off one of the biggest stems today. Here it is-
I then separated all the leaves, washed them well and dried them well.
This is usually how i prepare curry leaves before i pack them in an airtight container and store them in the refrigerator.
These leaves are going to last me more than a week. Feels so good to be able to grow your own food ,that too organically grown 🙂
