Since my mother passed away from Pancreatic Cancer I have dedicated a large portion of my life to writing articles that will help Pancreatic Cancer patients improve the quality of their lives. Life is precious and until some are faced with a life threatening disease such as this many don’t take the time to realize how fragile and valuable life can be. What can you do when your most valuable possession which is life is jeopardized? The answer is that you cherish what you have and you take the steps to make the very best out of the time that you have. This article deals with digestion and debt relief for Pancreatic Cancer Patients and their families.
Digestion and debt relief may seem like two peculiar subjects to tackle but in essence dealing with these two issues can make a world of difference for Pancreatic Cancer patients and their loved ones. First I will deal with the matter of digestion for those dealing with this brutal Cancer as proper digestion is vital for the Pancreatic Cancer patient. The reason for this is that people with this disease are fighting to live as the Cancer fights back to destroy them. We all know the frequently used expression, “You are what you eat.” The problem is that if you can’t eat you become nothing because you eat nothing or in other words you die if you are unable to nourish your body.
There are tons of books with nutritional plans and diet suggestions for Cancer patients full of fantastic advice on foods that can heal you or help you live longer but you have to be able to consume them to make it work. Pancreatic Cancer robs you of your digestive abilities in so many ways from stealing your appetite to causing great discomfort when you do eat. You can eat several small meals throughout the day, ingest vitamin rich and protein rich supplements and you can even take your digestive enzymes which are all recommended but there are just going to be times no matter what you do when it is hard to eat.
A nifty little trick my dad found out helped my mother when she did it and more than likely it will help you or your loved one as well and I encourage them to do this faithfully. Consumption of the proper diet during Cancer is vital for strength and for some even recovery. One crisis associated with Pancreatic Cancer specifically is that the entire digestive system is disrupted making it one of the worse Cancers in existence. One simple little item eaten with every meal and snack can provide digestive relief and that is a dill pickle. There is something in the makeup of a dill pickle that aids in digestion and helps prevent acid reflux, sickness and pain associated with diseases that make it difficult for people to eat and digest food. If you are not doing this already you should begin eating a dill pickle with every intake of food and watch the difference. You will be pleasantly surprised and you have nothing to lose. I am not a doctor and this is not medical advice it is just something that could possibly help you or your loved one live longer based upon something I’ve witnessed first hand. Try letting the dill deal with your digestive issues.
The more a Pancreatic Cancer patient is able to eat especially of Cancer fighting foods; the better their quality of life will be. It doesn’t do anyone much good to live long with a disease if they have a poor quality of life and for the Cancer patient quality of life is a critical treasure as you never know how much life you have. What if the ability to eat the right foods helps you live longer on this earth? What if? Aren’t dill pickles worth a try? It was very painful seeing my mother not be able to eat. We would get so happy when she had an appetite and then to see her racked with pain after eating was always a scene that killed the joy of the victory we felt we had jachieved ust moments before hand. When the dill pickles helped her digest her food without complications and pain I gained new hope of a prolonged life or recovery for her but she didn’t stay consistent with it and that was the downfall.
Thankfully, you can learn from our mistakes. Sometimes it is tough to get a Cancer patient to do what it takes to make them live when they are on mind altering pain killers like morphine. What I recommend is to make sure somehow that the Cancer patient you know, especially those with Pancreatic Cancer continues the dill pickle eating regimen faithfully no matter what it takes. It always amazes me how a component to a cure can be a simple item we never paid attention to before. Two other treatments I recommend that you research on the internet for Cancer are the baking soda treatment and the asparagus treatment. Try everything reasonable until you find something that works.
Secondly, I would like to deal with the topic of debt. Cancer is a very difficult disease to treat and most people don’t have enough insurance coverage to deal with the high Cancer treatment bills. All of the medications we had to get for my mother were so numerous and costly that our annual prescription benefits ran out. Some prescriptions cost as much as $800 for a 10 day supply. It is absolutely outrageous that when a person is dying and paying their debt to life they have to almost break themselves just to live or live a little longer in the most peace they can find with the disease. I have a few FREE suggestions for you.
First and foremost please come to the realization that Cancer can happen to anyone. Cancer does not discriminate and no one is exempt. Cancer comes to the rich and the poor, the famous and unknown, the young and the old, the black, white, brown, red and yellow. I would suggest Aflac to everyone and I am not an Aflac agent but I had it years ago and I know that they offer a Cancer plan that pays you a claim upon diagnosis and also helps to pay what the insurance doesn’t cover along with supplemental income payments. You would have to contact an agent to get more details. I just wanted to tell you a little about it in this article.
Next I would research studies that are being conducted for Cancer patients. Pancreatic Cancer is a Cancer that has been underserved when it comes to Cancer research and even recently bills have been passed for more Pancreatic Cancer research to be conducted. If a Pancreatic Cancer patient gets accepted into a study they are many times able to receive the latest cutting edge treatments for the disease and at no charge. I definitely recommend taking part in a study but if the treatment seems too hard on your body don’t continue. Since Pancreatic Cancer is so difficult to diagnose it usually isn’t diagnosed until it is already stage four and at that stage many times there is very little benefits that come from chemotherapy. My mother tried an experimental chemotherapy that did show improvement but she was unable to continue with it due to its effects on her.
The third thing I want to share on the subject of debt relief is in regards to life insurance. The only thing I really have to say about this is make sure you have more than just enough life insurance to cover the funeral. Life insurance should be at an amount that covers funeral arrangements, as well as, bills and living expenses for those left behind. I am both sorry and not sorry to say that. Sorry because the reality that death may occur is very difficult to deal with. It is extremely hard to think about the one you love or even yourself not living anymore. I’m not sorry because it is a possible reality that must be dealt with. My mother left a lot bills for my father to deal with and in his and the family’s grief it would have been nice not to have bill collectors callings while we ourselves were grieved to death from our loss. You have to think about income replacement, funeral expenses, bills and existing debt ahead of time. It will make things easier in the long run so please just do it.
In addition to providing people with Pancreatic Cancer and Cancer in general with useful information based upon my experience with Cancer through my mother I have started a business that helps people become mortgage and debt free. Imagine the burden that can be lifted off of you when you own your home outright and have no mortgage payments. Now imagine what it would be like to not only have no mortgage payments but for your bills to be paid off as well such as car notes and credit card bills. Cancer can leave behind devastating debt such as medical and prescription bills on top of debt that was already present before the bills associated with the disease surfaced. Many Cancer patients have to get home care and then there is hospice, legal fees and funeral costs. My job is to help people clear the debt out of their lives so that they can go on living with less pressure.
The way I do this is by introducing people to a little known financial system developed in Australia that is now available in the US and Canada. It is not a bi-weekly or debt roll down program but an advanced financial system that allows people to pay off their mortgages and debt in one third to one half the time allowing them to save thousands and even tens of thousands of dollars in interest while becoming mortgage and debt free. It would have been so much easier on my dad if his home was paid off while my mother went through her dramatic episode with Pancreatic Cancer. Had his mortgage and debt been paid off before she was diagnosed more money would have been available during the Cancer treatment process. You would be amazed as to how many people go into debt while they or a loved one has Cancer. Debt can add up quickly by charging medical bills and medication on credit cards. Some people even skip their house notes to pay medical bills as it is the most important issue at that time. I don’t want to help you prioritize debt I want to help you be free from the burden of debt and if you are a home owner I want you to be mortgage free as well.
One person that recently went through this program that I am offering had 8 years left on their mortgage when they started and paid off their mortgage, truck note and credit card debt in less than 13 months with virtually no changes to their current lifestyle on the same income they had always been on. Cancer really hurts badly for the Cancer patient and for those who know and love Cancer victims. I will give you a free analysis on how you can be mortgage and debt free in 1/3 to ½ the time on your current income to see if I can help you in any way. I am also available for contact for more suggestions on dealing with Cancer; specifically Pancreatic Cancer. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
