secondary infection...




Well, with a month-long illness my immune system was bound to be compromised.  Now I've got the dreaded secondary infections:  a sinus infection.  I'm using my neti pot, eucalyptus oil, warm baths, steam treatments, anti-inflammatory/pain meds....need to check on decongestants & zinc treatments.  I'm also sipping red tea (antioxidants) and trying to rest (ya right).  I'm gonna skip the doc & more antibiotics until we see if I can handle this at home.  My body does NOT need more antibiotics - I'm sure that would send my body out of whack and would probably lead to more thrush issues (I am *NOT* doing that again).

I ordered my SuperMom vitamins from Beeyoutiful, Wednesday evening ~ they are on their way.  It may not clear up my current issues, but hopefully I can get my body back to normal and build up my immune system again.  I've also been told to buy the "green" drinks (superfood type stuff) that you can find in the grocery store.  They taste like fruit drinks, yet also have TONS of veggies and green foods in them.  This is one way many people build up their immune systems ~ I don't want to go through *this* again.  I'm completely SOLD on preventative measures whenever possible!!

So sorry, no more current blogging.  Someday I'll be back.....someday......

Funny, we aren't health nuts, but do eat plenty of fruits and veggies, and take vitamins,and we meditate on what the Word says on health. (ps 91, 3rd John 2) But that's it, and we haven't been sick in OVER 2 YEARS. And I'm around sick people ALL day.

Keep your hands clean, keep your hands away from your mouth and eyes when out in public. i use those sanitizing wipes on the grocery carts. Just the other day, I was at the store, and a sick woman coughed all over the place, didn't cover her mouth, and I'm not sick.

take some probiotics, and load up on Vitamin C.

I have had great success with a large dose of Fermented Cod Liver oil. Sounds disgusting, but 5000-15,000 IU's and it will help you tremendously. My husband got swine flu, and had 1 day of sniffles and fatigue and that was it.
