My First Ozone Therapy Treatment…NAILED IT!

I’m so stoked to share with you all that my first Ozone Therapy Treatment has came and went and I did great!!!

I was admittedly nervous 😟 going in, I won’t lie. Even sitting in the comfy recliner chairs, surrounded by a couple of nurses and a few other ladies doing treatments, I was still a bit shaky. But, God knows me very well. 😊

The Big Man Upstairs knows that I’m just a little bit of a talker….seriously, just a little, tiny bit. 😊 So what did He do?? He planted those two ladies right across from me, one of which enjoyed talking, like me. 😉 Oh and then, He had two nurses in there, one of which was extremely willing to chat with me. And the other?? Well, she’s a trainer at a local gym (I might work out a little), buff girl (like me 😂), who models LuLu Lemon (which I love ❤️ ), and is pregnant. So I might of carried in headphones, my phone, a laptop, and my work bag….NONE of which I used. (Don’t let the note pad on my lap fool you….I didn’t touch it other than to get it out!) 😬 I may have talked the ENTIRE time. 😂 But that was perfect because it kept me from thinking about what was going on!

So, anywho, got through it, easy peasy. I had one IV with a combination of saline and ozone. The second IV had three main ingredients, of which I only remember Glutathione. But the second IV was to help boost my immune system. I will figure that combo out and let you know later. (Maybe if I hadn’t talked so much, I’d remember 😬) My nurse, Dana, forewarned me that some people will feel drowsy after having their IV, others have noticed that they have more energy. Since I’ve been sick lately, I was praying I was one of the lucky ones to have more energy….and I was one of the lucky ones. 😊 We had a lot going on last night so it would have been much more stressful had I been tired! And today, I definitely have more of my energy back that has been zapped from this nasty cold. 🙌🏼 Still not 100%, but definitely better! I feel like I have control of my day again!! 💪🏼👊🏼

So overall, it was a great experience! I wish I could give you all the conclusion right now and say, “hey it worked – my strep and other infections are all gone!” But I guess you’ll have to put up with my cheesy, third rate blog for awhile if you wanna know the answer to that. 🙃 I will continue to keep you all posted! Thanks for following along!!

Ten Week Journey of Healing

Hi all!! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve been on here!!  I had NO IDEA how much my kiddos being home from school was going to affect my work and blog over the summer! But man…note to self for next summer….someone say, “day camps”? Lol, I’m kidding…sorta…

Anywho…I hope you are having a wonderful Monday and a great start to your week!!
I’m back to blogging today and for a very GOOD reason!  I’m getting ready to embark on a little journey that may be of interest to you or someone you know!
As most of you know, I have Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, which is an autoimmune disease.  I’ve been battling it since 2003, at the young age of 24.  For a long time I just dealt with it, taking several medications to not only help my thyroid but to also help deal with the symptoms of Hashimoto’s…mainly anxiety, allergies, and my blood pressure dropping unexpectedly.  The last 6-7 years, I’ve slowly been learning more and more about nutrition, supplementation, essential oils, meditation and breathing exercises, finding the right doctor, holistic health, possible root causes, etc., etc.
A few months back, I had labs ran to test for possible infections.  If you aren’t aware, there are many infections that can trigger Hashimoto’s (and other autoimmune conditions).  I was aware of a few that I had contracted in the past (H. Pylori – ulcers, Epstein Barr – mono and Herpes Simplex – cold sores, and a few others), so I thought it would be good to see how active they were.  As expected, those that I just mentioned all came back as positive for having had them, with Herpes being a little higher as that is still active every once in a while.  But the one that I didn’t know they were testing for, and one that I wasn’t even aware was a possibility, was the one that came back so high, it was off the charts.  And it was one of the most common infections people, especially children, can get… and that’s Strep.  And this REALLY surprised me because I’ve only had strep once, maybe twice, ever.  So that leads me to the little journey I’m about to take.
There is something called Ozone.  Don’t ask me to describe it or really explain it because I’m not sure that I even know how to.  But, it’s known to be magical! 🙂 Ozone can kill infections in the body without harming the body. So, I’m about to go through 10 ozone treatments, one per week, at The Logan Institue for Health and Wellness.  There, Dr. Logan and crew will give me an IV with Ozone and Saline.  The hope is that these infections, mainly the strep, are/were the trigger for the onset of my Hashimoto’s, that this will kill the multiple infections that are both dormant and active, in bigger hopes that this will drop my thyroid antibodies and reverse my autoimmune condition.  Don’t be confused though, because there is no cure for Hashimoto’s.  So you’re probably asking why am I doing this then?  Well, because while there is no cure, reversing Hashimoto’s will allow me the relief of the multitude of symptoms that come along with any autoimmune condition.
So, why am I telling you all this??
I’m going to blog over the next 10 weeks about my experiences with the Ozone Treatment, my diet (AIP) during this time, what I’m doing for exercise, how I’m feeling, and of course, the end results.  So, if you have a thyroid condition, Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune condition, OR know someone who does, feel free to follow my blog or share with those who may be interested. (Warning – I don’t claim to be good at blogging, blog consistently, or make myself all pretty for my pictures and videos, as you may have noticed if you’ve already been following my blog! LOL) My hope, as always, is to empower people with knowledge about health and nutrition.
If you are willing, I would love some prayers of healing over the next 10 weeks!
Talk to you all soon!
