It never fails. I will wake up on a Saturday or Sunday morning and have at least one or two emails from followers who were up all night, overwhelmed with the feeling of “stuck.” They feel completely hopeless and limited by various circumstances and are convinced there is no way out of their chronic illness. When I dig deeper into their lives, I always find out that this is not true. There are always several things these people can be doing to help themselves that they weren’t able to see.
 
Here is what I want you to remember today:
 
No matter what roadblock you have in front of you, there is a way around, over or through it.


 

Today I am sharing some of the more practical things you can be doing at home, without the need of a care team, that will improve your health and pave the way for a remission. All of these are free or low cost and can be done from the comfort of your own home.
 
1. Dental hygiene. It seems common sense, but there are way too many people ignoring the care of their mouth. The first way disease enters our bodies is by what we put in our mouths. We need to be making more of an effort to be brushing and flushing. If you aren’t oil pulling already, start NOW. Also consider things like activated charcoal rinses (easy to make yourself in ten seconds) and dental probiotics to keep bacteria from growing and following those nerve pathways under each tooth into the rest of your body. (PS add bonus points for smiling often!)
 
2. MOVE! No excuses here, folks.  You MUST be active in some way for your lymph system to cleanse and flow and toxins to continue to be flushed out. Moving your legs especially, allows the lymph to thin, creating a better filter to catch the bad stuff. Can’t handle a 30 second dance party? Try a foam roller or resistance bands for slow, concentrated efforts. You can even google yoga routines in bed or talk with a physical therapist for options on how to move in a way your body can manage. This is crucial!
 
3. Juice/smoothies as snacks. It is appalling to me how many people request my help finding supplements that will replace them having to actually eat a vegetable. There is no replacement! If you are having time getting those greens in, then know your body is likely overly acidic, allowing disease to continue living. We need an alkaline inner environment and juicing or building a proper smoothie is an easy way to pack those nutrients in, in a way that still tastes good. Check out the Facebook group for more on this. 90% of people are doing it wrong!
 
4. Rest. Ignore the opinions of others and take that nap. Sleep in. Many of the chronically ill complain of less than quality sleep. Take this time now to incorporate a solid routine that allows you to rest when your body needs it. Even if you aren’t sleeping, listen to soothing music and allow your brain time away from any type of stimulation. This winding down allows the brain waves to even out, causing us to feel more relaxed and less stressed.
 
5. And lastly, invest in your face to face relationships. If you are feeling under supported, reach out and reconnect with those around you. If you are bedridden, ask them over to play a game or a cup of tea. If you are able to get out, pursue a hobby, attend a meetup group, try a new grocery store. Consider working as a freelancer on websites like Upwork.com. Small, short forays into the world are a great way to build up confidence in yourself and how far your body has come. Make it a point to reach out to someone each day and have a real conversation with them, even if only for a few minutes. This will make you feel a sense of purpose and accomplishment and can often raise your vibration to a higher level, allowing healing to occur within. Your illness does not stop you from being able to listen to them, give advice or laugh. Your diagnosis does not make you any less of a person– it only changes how you execute certain situations. I truly believe that.
