One of the pleasures of being with a three-month-old person is that he wants to be held a lot. I particularly like carrying him while walking around. As luck would have it, he likes me to walk around carrying him. He prefers if I sing to him as well…
Even with my back pain (mostly in my spine, not in the muscles I need to carry things), I’ve been able to hold my nephew a lot. I’m grateful for all the yoga classes I went to during winter and spring, which have built up my core muscles and made this possible.
This is what we’ve been doing for the past two weeks. Now I can see and feel my triceps getting stronger and more defined. It’s kind of wild. I’ve had so much muscle atrophy over the past four years that it feels like a miracle to have this process reverse itself so quickly and noticeably.
I started 5LAC today. I’m taking 1 packet a day for a few months (2 or 3, we’ll see how it goes) before I bump it up to 2 a day. This is to supplement coiling for Candida.
- Babesia, chest, 5 minutes; abdomen, 5 minutes; ilium, 1 minute each side; knees/elbows, 1 minute; shoulders, 15 seconds each
- Candida, abdomen, 10 minutes; chest, 2 minutes; face, 2 minutes
- homeopathic support
- juiced greens
- turmeric (in scrambled tofu)
- lemon water
- skin brushing
I’m still Herxing from the Lyme treatment. My spine is killing me all the time. It hurts much more indoors (air conditioning) than when I’m outside. No headache today. No visual disturbances. Light sensitivity was mild.
I slept through the night last night. It was great. I slept more than 9 hours. But I woke up ready to sleep longer and needed time upright to let my spine pain calm down. I also had strange pain down my arms when I woke up. It was a dull but intense pain in a stripe down my arm along the nerve that ends in my thumb and first two fingers.
I’m still having knee pain and mild pain in my other joints.
Other than needing a nap, I had more energy today than I had over the weekend. I think I’m learning that when my energy level starts to sink consistently from day to day, it’s time to coil again for Lyme. In contrast, sudden, extreme fatigue that persists seems to mean that I need to increase the coiling time for Babesia. Slowly, I’m learning.
