Breast Cancer, Radiation, Estrogen-blocking medication, Hypothyroid
I am struggling with what I call, "Radiation Narcolepsy" mainly because the intermittent and unpredictable nature of my energy levels are impossible to discern since approximately 2 weeks after my last radiation treatment...
I am eating a primarily plant-based diet with some fish and occasional poultry. I've been avoiding wheat-based products since 1999 which stabilized my weight & digestion; I've been avoiding sugar with great diligence (especially since 2011); I'm participating in a local Cancer Wellness fitness program and Nutrition course and am at least walking every day.
My experience with Cancer has inspired me to study for my Associative of Arts degree in Kinesiology: Fitness, Nutrition & Health, and I hope to one day become well enough to help others be & stay well!
Meanwhile, this exhaustion is not easy to deal with and I wonder about the estrogen-blocking medication and my thyroid function (as I have had hypothyroidism and been taking medication for that at levels that are monitored with regular blood tests), are there specific foods to add or avoid for my present situation?
