I wasn’t ready.
Who is ever ready for getting sick…..right?!?
Well, actually, I usually have some arsenals in my “medicine” chest for those few times a year when I feel something coming on.
That normally does the trick for me where I will go ahead and make tea with it and I might drink 8 cups of it over a period of the day depending on how I am feeling……but by the next day, it is like nothing ever happened or just a couple days of residuals like having a deeper voice for example.
But this time was different than any other time. I did not have it in my medicine chest and now I
totally regret not restocking.
While I got over the brunt of it within a couple of days, I still am experiencing residuals and it has been over a week! I am still getting a little cough which I am finding quite irritating especially because I love to talk! Ha ha ha!
I reckon, I have been burning the candle at both ends and in the middle temporarily so that did not help……and I did not miss a single marathon training session (I’m at the very beginning of my training), but still, I am soooooo not accustomed to being under the weather for so long and having a cough that lingers that long either.
Since I didn’t have my normal arsenals, I kranked up my vitamin C intake with some fresh, organic, locally grown lemons. And when I say kranked up……I mean that I drank strong lemon water with no sweetener added. Pucker up kind of strong! The only thing I added besides water was some apple cider vinegar.
If you ever make fresh squeezed lemon juice with a hand juicer, make sure you don’t cut yourself as that stings like H-E-double hockey sticks!
After this whole experience, you can bet your patootie that I am restocking on Vitalized Immunity. Not only does it give me the amount of Vitamin C found in the equivalent of 16 oranges in each fiz tab, but it also has a wonderful blend of immune supporting botanicals. And, the cool think about making a tea out of it by dissolving in warm water is that it releases the orange oils which coat the throat as you drink it for a wonderful soothing experience.
Do you want the Best of the Best…..the Cream of The Crop for yourself and those you love? Not sure how to get started? Here are 2 excellent ways.
And until my next blog post…… BE the reason someone is smiling today!
Make tomorrow amazing….. It starts with You today!
