The Sick To Do List

Per my previous post, here are some of the things I do when I am under the weather.

– pray

– sleep

– eat easily digestible foods to conserve the bodies energy (have broths and lots of liquids, stay away from sugary drinks, juices, no pasteurized products)

– get lots of antioxidants

– drink Kombucha

– drink green and white tea

– eat extraordinary foods (see below)

– peroxide in the ears

– clean out the nose with saline solution

– take oregano oil

– herbs (turmeric, garlic, echinacea, licorice root (glycyrrhiza glabra), astragalus (I have never taken this one), etc)

Some pills that I find helpful:

RM-10 (Garden Of Life)

Seasonal Relief (Garden of Life)

Vitamin C

Under The Weather

So I was “under the weather” the past couple of days. Yeah… me… under the weather… who would a thunk it.

I found it kind of amusing actually… well, before and after… not during my “under the weatherness”. Since I changed my diet I rarely get ill, especially when compared to my pre healthy diet days. I used to get sick about 4-6 times a year on average. Now it has been more like once every two years with the past year being the exception. Since I have moved to Nashville I have felt more under the weather than usual… like 2-3 times.

The past couple of days was the only time though that I felt drained of all my energy. The other times I had energy and was able to be up, out, and about. On this past Monday, I was so dead… I felt like I could hardly move. I hardly ate and slept for around 15 hours.
