As many of you may know — my 9-year-old daughter has been extremely ill for the last 4 weeks. It is so painful to watch your child suffer from illness and not be able to do anything to fix it. All the mamas out there know that when our kids hurt– we hurt too and just want to make things better.
I have to express the gratitude that I have that my kids aren’t sick often and that they (Praise God) don’t have any debilitating or chronic diseases. It took one viral syndrome that lingered to get me thinking about how unfathomable it would be to keep strength having a chronically ill child. I have so much respect and admiration for those parents that endure this journey in life. I can’t imagine—
Although Stanley steamer made quite a profit this past two weeks, (Emma’s room looked like a crime scene after an unfortunate projectile incident involving red Gatorade) — The rest of us have tried to stay healthy and avoid this nasty bug.
I have been eating sauerkraut for the healthy probiotic benefits daily ( about 6 forkfuls daily ) along with my Garden of Life probiotic. I even added some Young Living Oil of Oregano that I put in gelatin capsules and take daily. So far so good.
Another major tip is activated charcoal –you can buy that over the counter — (I get mine at Fresh Thyme)– it absorbs toxins in your body before they can harm you. They actually use it for food poisoning and alcohol overdose in the Emergency Room. Ancient Egyptians used it on wounds and Hindus used it to purify water. It is said that it was used in the past to treat anthrax and epilepsy. Common dosing says to take 2 capsules every few hours– but keep in mind that it will absorb some of the good nutrients in your body — so don’t take it at the same time as some of your other supplements .
