Being Sick

Good morning readers!

I have the opportunity to be sick today. I know, that sounds weird doesn’t it? But for someone in the health field it’s a good thing to experience what others go through. And, you know what? I’m practicing what I preach:

Be Sick!

What I mean by this is don’t fight it, don’t look for the miracle cure, do rest and give in to it. That doesn’t mean you’re letting the sickness win. Heaven’s no! It means that you are willing to take care of yourself. Stay in bed, stay warm, watch TV or read a book. But go slow, take care. The little phrase we say to each other unconsciously  “Take Care” actually means a lot. There’s a lot behind it. Think about it. Do you care for yourself? Do you give yourself time and space to BE? To take time for yourself? Okay, without going all “woo-woo” I think you get my drift.

Be Proactive

I also advise working proactively to rid yourself of your sickness. There are many things you can do to help yourself move towards health. Here are some ideas:

I have a cold…

Snuff and gargle warm salt water.

Take 1000 mg of Vitamin C an hour until a loose stool.

Take extra D3. 4-6000 IU a day.

Take echinacea and goldensea.

Take digestive enzymes on an empty stomach.

Take extra probiotics (not at the same time as the enzymes, as the enzymes will digest them).

Cut out wheat, dairy, sugar and white foods (white rice, potato).

Drink a ton of water.

Drink warm lemon water with agave and cayenne.

Call your homeopath.

I have a stomach bug…

Eat, drink clear liquids.

Take digestive enzymes on an empty stomach.

Take extra probiotics (not at the same time as the enzymes, as the enzymes will digest them).

Call your homeopath.

In the days and weeks ahead I’ll post more about caring for ourselves and how we can be proactive even before a sickness starts, but since I’m suffering a bit today and it’s very much on my mind, I thought I’d write these tidbits down.

Stay well and happy,

Christina
