Day 2

The sun is shining and I am about to sit in the sunshine for 20 mins or so. I think it helps and I’ve been told that so long as I am careful not to burn, then it can help to raise the seratonin levels in my brain which makes me feel better! If you want to learn more about the positive effects of sunshine visit Dr Mercola’s fantastic website.

I am taking weak colloidol silver (3ppm) to start with. 5ml three times a day. I am also taking my pau d’arco, capryllic acid and my Garden of Life Primal Defence arrived this morning (edited by Katie 10 Oct 07 – I dont recommend this product any longer.  There is too much controversy. Now I rely on threelac for my probiotics). I think my bad day yesterday was due to kill-off. I feel a lot better today. I should also add that I have been diagnosed as low in pancreatic enzymes so I take those too. I also take a selection of vitamins according to the tests carried out by my naturopath. So yes I am rattling! But I feel a lot better. I am also taking aromatherapy baths which I highly recommend. I mix 10 drops of pure essential oils in a few ml of carrier oil (grapeseed as I already had some). The mix of oils depends on how I feel. I use an aromatherapy guide book for advice. Its easy!! For example today my bath will contain tea tree and lavender to kill candida and any bugs plus rosemary to help alleviate fatigue. I would add some lemon oil but you cant use if you are going in the sun. Lemon helps to lift the spirits. There are so many oils to choose from and many of them smell divine. They only cost a few pound so its a low cost treat! You can also burn the oils in a special oil burner but I think baths help more if you are poorly. I burn oils if someone germy has visited!

I am also doing my Louise Hay’s affirmations which helps enormously (and I was such a sceptic in the beginning!). Plus I’m trying to drink loads of water. Fingers crossed that all this works.

Hope its lovely and sunny with you today!
