Choices

I went to see my Chiropractor this morning and she told me some interesting things. The most interesting was that she didn't think I have an infection and that the antibiotics I'm on will probably cause more harm than good (no infection=no use for the antibiotics=increase in yeast for no good reason). She said it was my choice what I did with that information, but it does make sense. My nasal "fluid" is running clear and that usually means no infection (sorry, probably more info than you needed to know!).

She did say that the cleanse I'm on and how badly my neck was out would make any viral cold that I would get a lot worse, hence the extreme sinus blockage. So I'm pumping myself up on vitamin c and acidophillus and going back to the chiropractor on Monday. If suddenly my nasal fluid does turn green and my symptoms get worse I have no problem taking the antibiotics. I just don't want to ruin my hard work for NOTHING if I have the chance to get better and keep the benefits of my cleanse thus far.

I know some people might think I'm weird and that this is all bogus, but I've got a lot of trust in natural and herbal remedies. I also have a lot of trust in doctors and medicine. If it wasn't for them I probably wouldn't be here today. There just has to be a balance between both worlds and I think I've found it for the most part. I've taken antibiotics before, and I'll take them again if I have to. There are just some things that I'd rather test the alternative route before taking medication that I know will have more harmful effects than good in my body at this particular time.

So on that note, would you please pray for me that what I'm doing will work and that I'm making the right choice. I appreciate all the support and encouragement I've gotten from everyone so far.

Absolutely, girl.

I hear you about your tough choices... We both know that we sometimes need doctors and chemicals and surgeries. But sometimes we just need to help our bodies heal themselves, in the incredible way God made them to work. Deciding when to try each approach is an art form.

Praying for a weekend full of strength, confidence, patience, and health. You are amazing.
