Mitochondria ... the powerhouse of our cells. Mitochondria are bean shaped organelles inside our cell that generate most chemical energy needed to power the cells biochemical reactions. They're also designed to protect our cells and unfortunately they can't do both at the same time. When they're in protect mode, the energy mode is not functioning as well. Leaving us ....
Extremely tired... That's always my first sign to take action and go to my wellness kit for an immune boost. If I simply feel "way more tired than normal" or "every little thing seems like an overwhelming task", that's my indicator to take action. I'm starting to get hesitant to say it ... but knock on wood I haven't been sick in 8 years. I've been run down from time to time but it hasn't turned into a sickness.
In our home, our #1 go to is Rachael's Remedy (I'll post about that soon, but in the meantime look back on previous blog). That typically knocks it out. If it persists, we progress in our regime.
Unfortunately, some have said they wouldn’t notice the difference if they were simply tired because of low thyroid, low vitamin D, or low iron.
Here's what we have on hand for when we need it (the following is a portion from a previous blog)... We don't use it all, in fact we don't even need to use it all that often, but it's nice to have ready when we do need it. Our kit includes: Rachael's Remedy Oil of oregano (this is mixed with Olive oil) ACV/honey/water/ Colostrum Really Raw honey with propolis (on a spoon not heated) IAG Zinc Vit C echinacea astragalus Cold Calm Belladonna Deep Relief
At the first sign of anything, if we ever even question if we have a sore throat or something, the 1st thing we'd do is Rachael's Remedy; put a drop on our thumb and rub it on the roof of the mouth. For us, that usually takes care of it. If we notice it's not taking care of it we do it again and add Rachael's Remedy to steam and add a couple drops of oil of oregano under the tongue. THEN, that generally takes care of it. If not, we move on to the whole regime and then we do each thing in the kit and do Rachael's Remedy in steam for sure. Belladonna is used for a fever, but in all honesty we haven't been sick/sick for a long long time and definitely haven't had a fever for years ... but it's there in case we do. I actually bought it so we'd have it in case I get sick because if I get sick I'd 1) probably forget what it is 2) My husband wouldn't know what I'm talking about. It's much easier to be prepared than have to run out and get items when you need them.
We also have a few other homeopathic remedies for if it's an allergy issue. Those have been primarily used for my son.
Also remember LOTS of water, concentrace minerals in water, massage, epsom salt baths, and routine deep breathing.
Have questions or in need of help with any of this? Let me know! Happy to help.
