What’s the verdict?
My favourite thing about this nifty little brush is that it fits snuggly into just about any handbag and it is not easy to lose given that it is bright pink.
I have completed just over a month of My Journey to Wellness and I have had some real up and down moments so far…
I missed posting at the end of week three – why? Simply put, and with no apologies, I was exhausted. And that exhaustion left me feeling very debilitated for a while but it led me to recognise a clear connection between stress and the flares in my condition.
I am now into week two of My Journey to Wellness and I feel great; I had such an amazing first week that I honestly didn’t have time to think about the changes I was making I just stayed prepared and got on with it.
On Friday, 28th May 2016 I embarked on my personal journey to wellness.
As I take the first steps on this amazing journey I am supported by an incredible team of people – all of whom have given their time and services to me free of charge because they too believe that there is an alternative to medication when managing autoimmunity.
If I have learned anything over the past 18 months it is that autoimmune disease doesn’t come with a “how to” guide.
You are simply handed a diagnoses and sent off – usually with a pile of drugs – and left to fend for yourself like a ship lost at sea. I am not saying that drugs are not necessary – in my case they saved my life and I will be forever grateful for that.
At the beginning of this year I felt that I was suffering more from the side effects of my medication than I was from my illness, so, with the guidance of my doctor I decided to stop taking them for a couple of months to see exactly how my body was doing under its own steam.
