Hi Lisa,
I was wondering if you had replied to my post of 22 August. I have been having problems with my emails so could you please reply to my new email.
Many thanks

Hi Lisa.
I was diagnosed with MM 6 months ago. How many pills do you take ?
I finished with Chemo and I won’t continue with the conventional treatment.
Could you help me?
Thank you so much.
Best regards.

Hi Lisa
I came across the great news in your post of 24 July 2020 by chance. Could you please let me know how much curcumin and vitamin D you take and your regime for taking it.
Thank you
Best wishes

Comment on Test results by Regina NZ Fri, 21 Aug 2020 23:12:35 +0000 Hi Margaret
Love that kitten. I lost my beautiful fur baby 6 weeks ago, he got to 19,5 years. I miss him so much and I still see him sometimes out of the corner of my eye. I still check the water bowl every now and again, it’s just a habit after so many years.
My husband wants to get a kitten, but I am still grieving for my Timmy, and don’t want to replace him.
I just got my test done yesterday and awaiting results and I am wondering if they will have headed in the wrong direction, due to my grieving, which may be a type of stress.

Comment on Test results by Marjorie W Sat, 15 Aug 2020 20:07:09 +0000 Wonderful news for you! I’ve been following you off and on for years, but, now that I have SMM rather than MGUS, I’m following even more closely. Thank you for providing so much invaluable information!!

Comment on Getting rid of curcumin stains by Marjie Sat, 15 Aug 2020 20:04:35 +0000 I just recently started taking Curcumin capsules and didn’t think about the dust on the outside of the capsules. Right after, I threw a load of white clothes in the washing machine only to realize at the end of the cycle that I now had spotting clothing. To make matters worse, I took each piece and used baking powder and white vinegar to start the removal process. DO NOT soak clothes in a tub. The curcumin will spread. Whatamess. I’ve learned a lot. By the way, when I highlight a word while doing this, the highlight color is YELLOW. It’s too funny. Okay, back to removal. After scrubbing with a toothbrush and the white vinegar and baking soda, I set each piece to dry. It will dry with a reddish color. I repeated it all over again. Then, I washed the clothing in the machine with some soap and laid them out in the sun. I did this twice and most of the stain is gone or barely noticeable. It was a LOT of work but it felt good to somewhat conquer the battle. I’m sure there’s a much better way to do it and am looking forward to learning what it is!
