The Vitamin D Project – Feeling Better all the Time!

October 22, 2009

The days of mega doses are over.  At the end of the day, I think that the vitamin D helped lessen the impact of this cold/flu (whatever it was).

Still using the neti pot.  For those who may not be familiar with neti pots…. it is a 8 oz little pot, in  shape of  a genie lamp.  Fill it with salt water, and pour the water into one nostril with your head tipped sideways, so that the water runs out the other nostril.  I prefer the ceramic variety.  They also come in plastic.  Very useful in getting the gunk in your sinus out.  Lord knows, as tempting as it may be to take antihistamines , or other drugs that dry up your poor old runny nose ..(do you think it too graphic to say snot?), the very last think I ever want to do is dry up any gunk in my sinus.  I want it OUT!  It really will clear your head.

it sure feels good to be out in the world again 🙂  I’m way late putting the garden to bed for the winter.  Way late!  Finally, yesterday, I pulled everything up and began to dig out some of the worst of the weeds.  Did I mention the poor dead looking sweet potato plant I put in?  In the end, we decided that it was not dead after all, and I’ve been looking forward to seeing what was growing under the ground.  Well, I dug up the worlds smallest sweet potato yesterday!  Looks like a mutant carrot!   Kinda fun!

    Sweet Liz–
    Et Resurrexit!!!
    How wonderful to find you feeling better!!! Re: the neti pot–Grandma used something very similar to this years ago–a glass bottle with a syringe device that would irrigate the nasal passages–It just didn’t have an au courant label-lol-

    Sounds like the same thing to me too. Neti pots are nothing new … been around for years, just not so much in western traditions. It is a cute little thing.

    Hi Liz,

    Wondering what your thoughts are on magnesium? I have read alot and talked to a dr. about how most people should be taking a mag. supplement. Our soils are depleted of minerals so even a healthy diet might be lacking. I was just curious what you knew.

    I hope its “ok” to ask something off topic.

    Love magnesium! Great for stress relief, and I sleep really well if I take it. Good for so many things. Unhappily, Lyme spirokets (sp) also love it 😦
    And we don’t want to feed those little buggers.
    A good way around this is epson salts in the bath. There is a complicated explanation for this. Don’t ask 🙂 I’m not an expert. I just know that, as with other substances (hormones etc) if you are able to bypass the digestive system, and the liver, by absorbing something through the skin, it can sometimes work better for you.
    There is no doubt that soils are depleted and many minerals are lacking in fresh foods.
    I’m so glad you brought this up! Off topic stuff is fun and could lead to more discussion and learning!

    We still have some wonderful red, orange, yellow and pale green leaves on the trees. We can enjoy them more with the sun out. How’s the weather literally and figuratively where you are.

    What are you singing these days?

    Love ya.

    Hi Martha! So nice to still have leaves! We are totally done here in Ohio.
    I’m planning a visit to DC (to sing etc). Let’s email and set a date for lunch 🙂
    Many things new and good here, and looking forward to hearing more about your studies!
