(the book lying on the bed was one I picked up at the community center's recycling/resale shop in San Pancho. Here's To You Jesusa! is a fascinating read based on the true story of a Mexican woman (Jesusa) who followed both her father and husband into war during the Mexican revolution and then later found herself alone and impoverished in Mexico city where she lived until her death in the 1960's)
End of May Wellness update
I realized that while I was numbering off the changes that I’ve made in the last year towards a healthier life, I forgot a major one…
Change #5…Last April I began a daily practice of EFT (emotional freedom technique) or “tapping”. I’ve gone into detail about this here in a separate page so I’ll just quickly say again…it’s been a lifesaver for a chronic-but-reforming worrier like moi.
As promised I’m reporting back with the results of my May wellness changes. It’s been a great month and I'm sure the Mexican sunshine helped!
I continued to do the Milk Thistle cleanse while I was away and one change has been very visible. I had several lipoma’s…two smallish ones and one that was fairly large. The smaller one has completely disappeared and the larger one has shrunk considerably since I started taking the milk thistle. I was scheduled to have one removed surgically, but it’s no longer necessary and I’m confident the larger one will also continue to shrink.
I’ve been doing a lot of reading into why this might have happened and what it might mean for other areas of my health. Although there hasn’t been a lot of research into it yet, (there’s no money for drug companies in herbs so as a result there's little research done), milk thistle cleanses the liver which is essential in the healthy functioning of almost every other system in the body. It's been used for many years in Europe (specifically Germany) and there's been research done there on Milk Thistle, which confirms the benefits that have been known for centuries.
As for the effects it might be having on blood sugar levels and cholesterol, I’m going to give it another month or two and have those both checked out.
I also continued to drink chlorophyll infused water but often found it a challenge to get the 6 glasses in every day. I didn’t take the chlorophyll to Mexico ((I’m always a bit nervous about taking supplements and liquids both a) in my suitcase and b) through not one, but two borders, as we have to change planes in the US.) but I did continue drinking lots of water and I will say it's much easier to do the six glasses...and more...in a hot climate!
This one is harder to evaluate but I know that both water and chlorophyll are beneficial so I’m going to continue on with it.
A Perfect End To Another Perfect Day
