This week has been one disappointment or struggle after another. Through it, God has given me peace that He is doing a new thing. He is still good, and His timing and purpose is always for His glory.
One thing I'm physically struggling with is tonsil stones. I have had that issue before, and it went away while I was on antibiotics for my skin. I've been have off that medicine for a few months now, and the tonsil stones have flared up again. I've been using mouthwash and taking multivitamins regularly, but I have not been exercising and have had a bad diet. I looked up the causes for tonsil stones, and almost every thing on the list applied to me! Lack of exercise, stress, and diet including a lot of fatty foods, refined foods, dairy products, fried food, and sugar. Almost everything I was doing was tearing down my immune system and overworking my tonsils.
So, I have resolved to make a point of exercising every day, and to eat fresh foods. This morning I had half an apple for breakfast, and drank a bottle of water while walking on the treadmill. I walked 3 miles in 50 minutes, burning 400 calories. That's a good start since I have not been exercising regularly. I ate a peanut butter and banana sandwich on wheat bread and drank orange juice for lunch. I may have a salad later this afternoon.
I'm all for home remedies, and taking care of my body, so as not to rely on medicine. Especially if it's a mild case of something that can be avoided easily. When I was taking medicine, I asked what else I could do. They just told me, "Eat whatever you want, and keep taking the meds." Well, it got expensive and my skin was still breaking out, so I decided to focus on taking vitamins and taking care of my body.
So here's to eating healthier and producing more lymph fluid!
