We took the muchkin to urgent care this morning after my ex and I drove to emergency in the middle of the the night and weighed all our options and decided to tough it out. So glad we did that. He ended up walking around holding her for hours and I held her upright in bed. She has severe reflux. Had it her whole life and everytime she gets sick, no matter what it is her reflux flares up horribly.
She hates taking medicine but I’m going to have to force her to take high doses of colloidal silver to help neutralize the acid and slippery elm bark to help thicken and weigh down the liquid in her tummy so it has a harder time coming back up as soon as she starts getting sick.
Fortunately they told me we were doing everything right and they didn’t want to prescribe anything because she has her H. Pylori test tomorrow and it’s a very sensitive test. Hopefully this gives us a better idea of her digestion. It doesn’t help that both her father and I have digestive issues as well and I still firmly believe that being born cesarean bypasses a necessary mechanical aspect that babies need to put things into place and start the body up….so to say.
Anyway……we’ll get through it. Had to cancel my only client today, which is fine. I’ve been a zombie all day…so tired. It’s 3pm and I haven’t even eaten breakfast yet.
I did that mucoid plaque cleanse in December and several clients have asked me how it went. Did I see vast improvement? And no…. I can’t honestly say vast but at the same time…. while I can’t say I have a ton more energy or lost weight or something very quantifiable I can undoubtedly say that I haven’t really gotten that sick.
This munchy has been very sick lately, in fact all three girl have been sick this season and even with this one coughing right in my face repeatedly and me being in direct contact with her vomit I didn’t get sick. I felt a few waves and slept a bit more. My mind/body awareness seems to be much better and even more interesting my spiritual practice has seemingly gotten much stronger. Maybe there is really something to that pineal gland thing.
I say this because after my ex told me about his sister getting engaged Saturday I remembered that about 2 weeks ago both my daughter and I woke up to dreams about her. Mine was that she was getting married. The event was very dark and my ex mil was crying and very upset but the most distressing part to me was that the bride was unhappy as well.
I was even tempted to text my ex-sil but it didn’t seem my place. I kind of regret it now, a little. Knowing my mil she is probably very upset indeed. She (rightfully so I think, unfortunately) does not like her daughters fiance.
It’s like I tell my clients better out than in. I don’t get why clients would not want to have that stuff out when I show it to them. For one how does anyone expect to have absorption of nutrients with a disgusting casing layering your intestines. Secondly the cleaner your bowels the better everything else that filters toxins into your colon can work, lymph system, liver, kidneys, etc. All very common sense to me. So while no I can’t go run a marathon now I think overall it was very positive thing to do for myself and I’m proud of myself for taking care of me. Prevention is priceless.
I plan on doing it every 5-10 years as general maintenance for my body. It’s not like it was hard, even for me that generally has a hard time taking things and following protocols.
I have to start making posters for my digestive talk next month at the library. I booked the main room and hope I get a few people at least to come. It totally surprises me how many people don’t know what good bowel health looks like. What a standard bowel movement should look like. Simple things to improve and manage it better. It’s a community service and if I get any business from it great but mostly I just want to share important general knowledge about our own bodies that seems to be lacking.
You don’t know what you don’t know until you know you don’t know it. Unfortunately that sometimes means not feeling well before people seek the information. So this is me trying to help anyone wanting to improve or just know how it works. We are after all just magnificent machines powered by food, water and God. Good to know how to do maintenance on our equipment and how it works.
Basic knowledge of digestion can go a long way to knowing when to get help or when to take steps to assist it. Digestive health issues can really impede quality of life. I should know. Lol. I do know. Good can come from suffering. Thankfully….. otherwise it would all seem rather useless. Wouldn’t it?
Wishing you a day of gratitude wherever and however you can find it. Mine is going to be wrapped in a corn tortilla and smothered in homemade guacamole here soon. The ex took the sicky for the evening sooooo….. to do list here I come.
