Welcome friends for tea this week. As we all know, October is breast cancer month and it is important to have regular mammograms.
This is Hope from the Thomas Kinkade 'Wings of Hope' collection. I couldn't resist a beautiful pink fairy with a butterfly and she signifies hope for the cure.
Earl Grey tea is brewing in the Royal Albert Lavender Rose teapot.
And the teacup I'll use that compliments this pattern is Paragon Victorian Rose.
Something to nibble with the tea...how about cranberry scones?
Our family is fortunate not to have any members with breast cancer, although we all likely know someone.
Last year after having numerous tests and seeing a specialist, I decided to visit a naturopathic doctor. My wrists, knees and ankles were constantly swelling and enough to wake me up nights. My general practitioner was at her wits end so I had nothing to lose by having a second doctor check me out.
Within the first hour of my interview, he told me he knew what was wrong. I didn't realize a naturopath was a digestion expert and what I required was digestive enzymes. The swelling was caused by a buildup of toxins in the joints as my body was very acidic and probiotics were also prescribed.
The most important lesson I learned was that an acidic body is a breeding ground for cancer. I checked this fellow out with some research and found what he told me was true.
So, my advice to you is to have your pH checked and if too acidic, diet can correct this. Little booklets of test papers can be bought and although a urine test is best, saliva can be used.
I'm linking with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage and Trish at Sweetology. Please visit them and their guests for tea.
