- eat more vegetables
- fewer processed foods
- less sugar
New things I’m trying:
- regularly eating cloves of garlic- it’s a little gross but if you chop it up and chase it with water it’s not so bad. I’ll try to do it once or twice a day. This is supposed to kill the lyme bacteria, in addition to antibiotocs (allegedly?) Garlic is really good for you so taking it can’t be a bad thing. haha
- organic apple cider vinegar (Bragg’s brand)- i’m trying this one like a tea, 1 tbsp of the vinegar, 1 tbsp honey (local honey), in a cup of water. wasn’t terrible, and i’m sure I’ll grow to like it over time. I’ve read it can really clear up acne and make you healthier overall, so in addition to helping with my herx reactions it really can’t hurt, right?
I’ve tried both of these things today and have my lemon tea next to me right now. I’m physically exhausted (it’s what happens after a weekend of chasing drag queens, haha) but my head feels much better than usual. Much clearer. I hope it continues to improve.
I’m making a really epic vegetable soup as we speak- carrots, celery, onions, garlic, purple cabbage, kale, yams, and mung beans, in addition to bay leaves, salt, pepper, and a little soy sauce. I’m so excited. I should have enough afterwards to have lunch for most of the week. It’s really delicious, you guys. Kind of having a foodgasm over here, haha
I hope everyone is doing well! Let me know what things you are doing to stay healthy! Take care of yourselves! <3
