Modern and Ancient Healing
I woke up the other night with a terrific nightmare going - I dreamed I couldn't breathe and was dying and was crying out for someone to help me and there was no one. Thankfully, I woke up. Woke up to find I truly couldn't breathe through my nose at all. Thus began a zoomer of a sinus infection. I blame the obviously extremely sick girl who was at the appointment window at the optometrist's office - she was so sick, I couldn't believe she was trying to work. She was coughing and sneezing constantly and didn't even attempt to cover her mouth or nose...I wanted to tell her to do their customers and herself a favor and go home and get well. Then I remembered the U.S. is moving toward doing away with sick pay. Beware!
So, this morning I've been digging through unused antibiotics as it is spreading to my lungs and broncials as usual. I'll call the doc Monday as I don't want the complications of bronchitis with surgery. Self medication? Yup?
And I'm going out to find a neti pot - and try an ancient remedy as well. From a book review:
Frawley (Pandit Vamadeva Shastri). The most thorough and practical presentation of how to use the neti pot yet. Notably, the book shows the place of such 'nasal therapies' in India's great healing traditions and their relevance for treating common diseases.
I'm also going order a bottle of Nikken's "Immunity" - a compound of various mushrooms known for killing bacterias and viruses and use it up. I can truly say the "Jade Green" supplement has tripled my energy - which was pretty low - so maybe I now have something approximating normal energy.
Last night I had a unique experience with muscle testing. Will relate more about it later. I'm off to Everman's for bubbling water and a neti pot and some organic veggies.
