I have been very sick since last Sunday…
It started as a general fatigue and no appetite.
Couple days later these symptoms followed by penetrating headache, dizziness, body aches, chills, and itching in the throat.
3 days later I was in bed with 103 degrees fever, severe cough and breathing difficulties. I couldn’t move my body, I couldn’t talk, eat, or respond to people.
My friend, who is a medical doctor, explained that I had Pneumonia – an infection that inflames the air sacs in the lungs, causing cough with phlegm or pus, fever, chills, and difficulty breathing. I also learned that bacteria, viruses and fungi can cause pneumonia.
My mom has been taking care of me all this time. She used only old Russian remedies, which she learned from her grandmother. This illness allowed me to spend several days with her… it was nice to reconnect again.
After a week of being in bed, I am finally starting to feel better as my energy is slowly coming back. I didn’t use any drugs while I was sick, not even over the counter medications like Tylenol or Advil. I have to say that my body feels so much lighter; my mind is sharper than ever, my joint and muscle aches are gone, my eyes are brighter, and my skin is glowing. My digestive system was very happy to take a break from food.
And the most important, I am grateful for my body’s ability to recognize and destroy a virus that had an attempt to invade my body.
I know, this recovery and feeling of rebirth and complete renewal wouldn’t be possible if I took antibiotics or other flu medications. I know the difference – I used to take flu medications in the past. They made me feel drowsy, nauseous, weak, and lethargic.
When I get sick, I use natural remedies and healing foods to support my recovery. When I do that, my body and mind feel restored and reinvigorated after illness. I have more energy and feel inspired and supported by the army of ‘dedicated inner soldiers’ – my immune system that fights for my health and always wins!
This inner trust into my body’s capacity to overcome any illness is very uplifting. I experience a deep gratitude and humbleness for being alive. Only 5 days ago my entire body was sick and inflamed when I was unable to take a breath without coughing. I felt scared, as I didn’t know what would happen to me tomorrow.
My renewed health and sense well-being is a reminder about the miraculous healing power that lives within me… and within all of us…
This experience makes me feel deeply inspired and wanting to continue my healing practice to help my clients achieve their wellness goals, creating a brighter future for themselves and their families.
