how i naturally cope with sickness…. #CoconutOil

ok last weekend my 7yr old had a fever

just a slight one

he gets better and goes back to my ex

….

wednesday night TinMan gets ill plus horrid back pains

thursday he gets meds (doctors like him)

thursday night or after midnight friday morning… i start to get ill

….

…….. note to self :

when one is truly allergic to codeine.. don’t kiss someone taking codeine

….

right away i started having tingling and numbness in my lips

slight lung issue

by 7am friday morning i went home cause i was getting worse fast

i didn’t start hallucinating but reading on my kindle became way more vivid

….

saturday i am in and out of sleep, low fever, body aches, horrid hangover like migraines, swollen abdomen, lungs burnt like i smoked a pack of cigs in one go or ran a mile in the freezing air… dry mouth/throat/nose and more

normally a thing like this would knock me on my ass for a month and another month to mostly recover

the joys of having an undiagnosed autoimmune disorder

….

when i started taking coconut oil, on a regular basis, starting in april last year

 i started to heal faster overall, suffer less and stopped taking any meds unless it got too heavy for me to cope

even then i usually only take paracetamol

i hate meds, i suffer too many side effects or develop allergies to the meds

one medication made me lose feeling in my clit…. i took 3 low does pills and nearly 2 years later i still dont have full sensation!

so yeah, i try for more natural ways to get better

….

i know i need to drink plenty of fluids and eat, even though i am not really hungry

i made myself some chicken legs/thighs

they where frozen and i put them in a baking dish with warm water covering 2/3rds up the side of the chicken leg

added lots of parsley flakes and some Himalayan rose salt to the water

when it was mostly done baking, i added some garlic powder to the broth and on top of the skin which was crispy

i also baked up some carrots, mostly just reheating them as i bought them pre-vapor cooked

added the carrots, both and some chicken into a bowl

my mom and i have been reading up on health benefits of various herbs and such for years

she sent me some green tea pills and red algae pills

i hate pills but i figured if i opened the soft gels (you never know what they are made of or if they will cut the beneficial properties of what is inside) and mixed with hot water to dissolve the powder and make a sort of tea…

well i poured the tea like mix into my soup and it had a nice flavor

….

but before all that i made myself one of my hot coconut oil drinks

easier to drink something healthy while prepping and baking

my drink consisted of a large Guinness mug, filled 1/3rd with hot milk

then i add coconut oil… i used a heaping tablespoonful of cold/solid oil (it is only liquid when warm)

then coffee and some passion fruit syrup

the oil in that amount is hard to drink

so slimy feeling but the milk and coffee thin it out and the syrup makes you feel special

pretty tasty

….

i drank half the mug and less than 20 min later i suddenly had a productive cough instead of dry cough

it started cleaning my system out as if i was way more into the cold/flu/thing

the neat part about coconut oil is that it is antibacterial like antibiotics but not harsh on the body unless you are one of the rare people allergic to coconut

the coconut oil is ALSO antiviral! it is a kick ass plant with a ton of health benefits

but many people are stupid and cry out “no no it’s fat it’s fat it’s SATURATED fat”

that just means it burns higher without changing chemical composition (thus going from good to toxic)…unlike all the other (non tropical/non medium chain fatty acids) oils we have been told are healthy for us (some are still very healthy, so long as you don’t heat them and they are not exposed to light or air)

….

on the side i have been drinking lots of tea with honey

mainly these two flavors

lavender, thyme and rosemary…. very sweet even without honey

the other tea is from the brand loyds, EXTREMELY flavorful, rosehips (high in vitamine c) and apple

so if we say i started getting noticeably sick after midnight of friday morning and it is now early evening sunday

i am detoxing my system extremely fast whereas it would take me at least 2 weeks to get to the productive cough stage at my “normal”/messed up healing rate

it is helping me, the coconut oil and it augments the other healthy stuff i have been doing for most of my life

….

in the words of reading rainbow “but you don’t have to take my word for it”
