It’s official – my thermostat is broken! Last night, I had yet another night of disturbed sleep, interspersed with being either way too hot or shivering cold. This temperature control problem is part of the illness I am now in the process of healing.
Along with all the other crazy symptoms, it can be a real pain in the backside, but soon all of this will be a thing of the past, as I am slowly finding and working out ways in which to help my body back to it’s natural state of good health.
Day 114, Reason 114: Today I am delighted to discover another piece of the puzzle.
As I am typing this, I am sipping a cup of black, decaf, Earl Grey tea, which tastes even better than usual. This is because that from today, I am only drinking bottled spring water, having found that the filtered tap water I have been drinking all this time (although technically safe to drink) is laden with chemicals.
I’ve also been painstakingly going through all my beauty products – shampoo, moisturisers, make up, toothpaste etc. I’m already quite careful about which products I put on my skin, and I (mostly) adhere to the rule of not putting anything on my skin and hair that I wouldn’t be prepared to eat – mostly because sometimes the power of advertising appeals to my vanity and I have succumbed!
I came across a few items in my (very limited) beauty regime, containing natural ingredients that showed up on my food intolerance blood test result as being in the red zone – that is I have very high antibodies against them. So, they have now gone – donated to my Mum – and also plenty of products that, even though they promise to get rid of my cellulite etc, just had too many chemical nasties. Yuck!
One of the affirmations I have been using over the past few months, is that “I attract everything I need for my body to heal.” It seems to be working, as quite a few little things have shown up recently and I have a strong feeling that eliminating these chemicals from my life will have a very positive effect on my health and the healing process. Yay!
