I am so thrilled, so beside myself that I must write this now. I didn't wanna speak too soon so as not to make a fool of meself. I am currently at 35,000 feet in the air, it's -57 degrees outside this big ol' plane and I'm on my lil computer that the man hooked up for me to play with. I have to share this - that's how exciting and huge this is!!
We've been in Hawaii for a bit and on our way back home. I was a little scared about this trip and how I'd fare -
1) I've been warned by friends that live in Hawaii (newer transplants) that staph is rampant and will get you when you least expect it. A few years ago, only weeks into our friends living there, with a small cut on her foot with a decent immunity, she got a staph infection that spread. Like most things, since I've met Unyquity, I believe only fractions of all scary stories. I think it's all a mirror of how robust your immunity is. I fell in a forest and cut the palm of my hand. It was a good sized gash and I was a little concerned about it as we were only a few days into our trip.
The skin was broken and flapped back a little. I went to the store, got a travel pack of band-aids and nail clippers for the extra skin. Got back to the room, washed it well in Miracle 2 soap, trimmed the skin and put Uny's Echinacea on it. I repeated this a few times, never put a band-aid on it and in getting in and out of the salt water, the 1/4" x 1/2" gash was gone in 3 days. Staph?!? What Staph?? Ha!!
...btw...I never opened the travel pack of band-aids. :)
2) Staying in the jungle with my 3 nephews (I'm not kidding, they live very close to the land), we stayed in a tent in the back 'yard' (lol). There's a huge problem with a parasite called 'rat lung worm' and apparently slugs get the buggie from the rat and slime it all over your vegetation. Although most on the Big Island use catchment water, it is not potable. You must completely dry your dishes before eating off of them and folks are instructed to be incredibly careful. I heard the number 50,000 cases and scoffed at it. Although I still have imbalances that the IP will take care of - I feel a confidence with my immunity that I don't think I've felt in my entire life.
Not but a few sneezes, I drank coconuts hacked open in the jungle, hardly washed off mangoes that I ate with my hands, papayas, jack fruit and fresh caught Ahi fish - shared tables with folks that hadn't really washed their hands - and I sneezed but a few times. No stinky anti-bacterial stuff once - just me, Uny's brilliance, my small tote of tinctures and my new found immune confidence.
3) My bowels and body were certainly fatigued and sluggish for the first week or so. At the end of the Hawaii stretch, I woke up with a cold sore on the right side of my bottom lip. I washed it well, put Uny's Echinacea on it twice and it was completely gone in a few hours. We washed our hands with Miracle 2 Soap everywhere we went and nary a blemish on the immunity.
4) In San Francisco for the last few days, we were visiting friends. One of our friends became ill while we were there and as they'd already prepaid a small trip they'd saved up for for this weekend - they were very sad that their trip might be in jeopardy. To the rescue! Small bits of spices, ACV, garlic, ginger in the kitchen? Check. Out of nothing, I made salt baths with ACV, cocktails, did some lymph drainage and hung out with her for 2 days while helping where I could with love and complete confidence that I'd be fine. A few sneezes? Yes, she had a cat and I sneezed a bit. ;) For 2 days I hung out with a person getting bronchitis with a fever AFTER 10 days in Hawaii...suck on that buggies!!!!
Not a scratch. No rat lung worm, bronchitis or staph can catch me! Muuahahahahahahaaaaa!!!!!
