This week has been absolutely tiring! Not only did midterms
start to kick in, but a horrible viral respiratory infection took
hold of me as well. It started on Sunday and I actually had
laryngitis (no voice!) up until Wednesday accompanied by an
extremely sore and painful throat, spasmodic dry coughs, night
sweats, and high fevers.
I took a couple hours off my clinic shift to be treated in the
ND clinic by a couple of awesome colleagues of mine. They put
together a very impressive and pretty aggressive treatment plan
since the infection sounded like it was going deeper into my lungs
every day. There were some doubts floating around from other
colleagues about whether or not I would actually improve because
with each passing day I was getting worse. A huge component of the
progression was the fact that I was sleeping about 2-3 hours/day
because I coughed throughout the whole night.
However, this weekend I had the chance to finally SLEEP in as
long as I wanted. After some new additions to the treatment plan
they put together, I slept about 12 hours and then another 10 hours
the next day and woke up feeling brand new! I still had the
coughing and sore throat but to a minimum! So after a week of
torture on so many different levels, my body halted the viral
infection on it's own without the accompaniment of antibiotics or
anti-virals, which is amazing!
I am so passionate about this medicine that I delve into every
day. I KNOW it works and I believe in it wholeheartedly--well, I
think I do--then I encounter moments of doubt when applying the
medicine to myself. In this case, I was very positive that the
treatment plan implemented was going to work, but I know there was
also a line of doubt that I continuously had running through my
head. However, I was very against giving up before at least giving
it about 5 days. Well, the treatment plan started Wednesday and the
effects were seen about late Friday/early Saturday, so it kicked in
a lot sooner that I expected!
I am still recuperating and taking it easy for at least a couple
more days, but all in all, I feel like I can finally function and
have returned back to the world! :) Not only am I excited to get
back into functioning normally but also I miss my daily workouts!
Crazy, huh? :)
Well, I hope you all had an amazingly sunny weekend like I did
minus the sickness! Oh, and I included a picture of my beautiful
nephew because looking at his picture just makes my heart smile so
I thought it could possibly do the same for you!

perfectly in and laid out for a couple hours to soak up some
