I felt like a regular American woman today. My period came after two days of PMS cramps. The abdominal cramps were worse today than they usually are during the cycles when I’m not knocked out by my period. I napped on the BioMat. I used a hot water bottle on my abdomen.
I didn’t have much of an appetite most of the day, and my stomach was a little nauseated for several hours. But no diarrhea. No vomiting. No lying on the floor because I’m too weak to stand. No chills. No sweats. No blinding headache (just a minor one this evening).
It was regular, normal, not Lyme disease disastrous. What a relief.
I don’t take anything during my menstrual distress. I am wearing the acupressure balls on the shen men points in my ears. I’m not sure if they help, they certainly don’t hurt.
I’ve been tracking my cycles. This year has been pretty good. Not too many that knocked me out (maybe 3 out of 9 in 2011). And the ones that don’t knock me out are getting less intense, except for today’s cramps.
I’m hopeful tonight about having a healthy body through and through.
- Babesia, ilium, 1 minute each side; knees/elbows, 1 minute; liver, 5 minutes; chest, 5 minutes; shoulder blades, 30 seconds each; shoulders, 30 seconds each; feet, 1 minute
- Candida, abdomen, 10 minutes; chest, 2 minutes
- skin brushing
- fasting for part of the day with plenty of water
- BioMat (2 sessions of 1 hour each, level 2)
Mostly mentioned above. No night sweat last night. I couldn’t settle down to sleep until 2:30am, even though I’d been in bed for hours. Insomnia often precedes the beginning of my menstrual cycle.
Cramps most of the day, hurting enough to slow me down significantly. No appetite until 5:30pm. Then I was pretty hungry.
My knees hurt a lot. My joints are starting to get sharp pains of medium intensity: shoulders, elbows, hips, wrists, knuckles.
My head hurts a little tonight, with special emphasis on my right eye.
My ears are still popping as the congestion from the interminable cold clears from my head.
