Fighting It Naturally


Hola! I'm blogging from Canada ... burrr. It's been a nice few months since returning, but now the weather is cooling down =( We've had frost twice, and many days requiring our coats & toques & scarves. So, if you happen to think of us Canadians in pity, send up a prayer for an Indian summer. 


This post is to continue on with a few more ideas & things that we do naturally to help us stay healthy. My last post on this topic included:
* Gargling with salt water * Steam Rooms * Raw Garlic * Chest Physiotherapy * Physical exercise * Cough Tea * and of course Nutritional Supplements!!! Below are a few more =)


Drum-roll ...

Essential Omega Oils for joints and cognitive brain function (Omega 3) - I take fish oils & D3 (5,000 IU 3x per day) Another great way to naturally get Vitamin D is to get out in the sunshine for at least 30 minutes a day if possible. I envy all you living in a warmer climate that can do this year round =)


Casein Removal - 80% of the protein in Milk is Casein. When you consume casein, your body is seeing it as a foreign protein, and you land up producing histamines which end up as mucus. That's why it's mucus forming. This process takes 10-12 hours.
Let's not forget the law of replacement ... people use milk everyday in so many different things. So, substitute Cows Milk for Almond/Rice/Hemp milk. I personally use and LOVE Almond milk. We either buy non-GMO Almond Milk or make it ourselves. We have a great, simple recipe =)

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) - MSM is great for so many things. It helps detoxify the body and increase blood circulation, it relieve stress, inflammation, etc ... the list goes on. I get a glass of warm water, dissolve 1 tsp, and drink as often as I remember. Anywhere from 1-4 times per day.

Alfalfa  - Most CF patients are on either on ADEK's or SourceCF or some other form of Vitamin K. Vit K is excellent for blood vessels and much more. We started using Alfalfa in January of this year. We buy it in bulk and make them into pills for daily use.

Colloidal Silver - Kills virus' & bacteria ... I take it only when I'm sick, or if I feel something coming on.

The Nutritional Supplements I take (product name not listed on my blog) include Vitamins & Minerals, Enzymes (natural ones), Probiotics, Carbohydrates, Phytonutrients, Phytosterols, and Antioxidants.

That's all I can think of for now, have a great day & stay healthy!

I have so many questions I am not sure where to begin. I have ALWAYS been sceptical of doctors and remember even begging my mom not to take me when I was younger. When I got older and after I had an unnecessary CSection (story for another time) I promised myself that I would start standing up to doctors and saying NO! After my 2nd son was born, ALL NATURAL GO ME! He was diagnosed with CF I went on to ask my distant cousin with CF and a few other people how they delt with all the meds and if they took all of them .. they pretty much told me it was a way of life for CFers and that you HAD to do it to keep healthy. I have now found your blog and I am SHOCKED I had no idea that there are people that try and treat CF Natural and I am so happy and scared at the same time because I have no idea where to start with getting my baby who is now 1 1/2 on something more natural Please contact my email couponfrenzy0000@gmail.com
