Today I just want to buy something. Isn’t that odd? I fulfilled this need by ordering my first Christmas present for someone. (my sister)
I went to the dentist this morning. I have a cap (well, I have lots of caps) that has been feeling funny. Not really hurting because there was a root canal on the tooth under the cap but sensitive and oddly warm occasionally. So I went and they didn’t find anything too wrong. My gum was a little inflamed and he said the bite was a little off so I might be putting pressure on one edge of the cap. It’s a porcelain cap so he ground a little off the top to make the bite better. Now the other side of my mouth hurts! I sure hope it’s temporary.
Today I have an acupuncturist appointment as well. I will spend at least half of the appointment thanking her. She pushed me gently into trying some Chinese herbs. It took exactly four days for me to realize that they are miraculous. They did not make things a little better, they made things unbelievably better. I have not had to take a prescription or OTC pill for my sad intestines for THREE WEEKS! This weekend I will try raw veggies. I have been very careful about what I’ve eaten in the last three weeks to make sure I’m allowing optimum healing. But even eating things I shouldn’t or that were borderline I reacted the same as I would have reacted two years ago – before radiation.
I know I’ve talked about it but I will repeat this little triad many times because it is made to help people with all sorts of intestinal issues. If it worked on me, and I 100% guarantee you that mine were in worse shape than 99% of the people who may stumble across this, then it is worth it to give it a try.
Aloe Vera Juice – the pure stuff. 2 to 3 ounces every day or or two. Multi-spectrum digestive enzymes taken with any food that potentially may cause you problems. And then you must find someone who carries the GI Care Formula of Evergreen Herbs (EVHERBS.com). A-FREAKING-MAZING!
I do think I will have to permanently eschew most dairy and wheat. I just ate a snack of some of those lance Cheese /Peanut Butter crackers and it’s making me feel a little, uhg. I think that part of my digestive system is just damaged beyond repair. I’m okay with this. My goal for 2013 is to be on an at least 50% raw diet.
I am very close to be another size smaller while only losing 2 pounds. Not really sure what’s going on there but I’m trying not to even think about it. I feel good, I have some excellent muscles and eventually I will drop the last 15 pounds. Until then I’ll just keep trying to do what I do. Bike this morning, yoga tonight. Tomorrow Bike, then Zumba.
I had three excellent nights of uninterrupted (mostly) sleep then last night I woke up 11 times according to my FitBit. It feels like I woke up 11 times! My eyes feel all puffy and achy.
HA – after all that above, I just realized that I forgot to take my herbs. I would rather travel without my blood pressure medicine than my herbs. Does that tell you something? If I went somewhere and forgot them I would have them shipped overnight to me!
Off I go.
