Ha… what a title. Check out this article at Food Quality News.com. It is talking about the dangers of aspartame. Notice how it says “Despite
Per my previous post, here are some of the things I do when I am under the weather.
– 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)
Now… for some further explanation.
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.
I have been enjoying olive oil my whole life long. I am half Italian (mom’s side) and so I have a nice relationship with olive
I first heard about kombucha sometime in 2004‚Ä¶ I can‚Äôt remember exactly when. However, I was caught up in all of the new things about food that I was learning and switching over to real milk was taking the place of other beverage investigations. So I am finally drinking kombucha. A wonderful health promoting beverage.
So first off, what is kombucha? Kombucha is tea that has been fermented. It’s always prepared with sugar and tea. Just like any fermentation, the bacteria and yeast feed on the sugar and the byproduct is carbon dioxide and some other stuff which I do not remember at the moment. You should look it up. (who says that? really?) Kombucha contains several B-vitamins, probiotics, enzymes, and antioxidants.
