We got our FIR sauna set up last weekend and I have been eagerly but cautiously using it for 10 min. at the start of my day after drinking water to hydrate first thing. Probably the most interesting result thus far is it restarted the eye burning, sneezing, bronchial irritation with resulting cough. These are all at minor degrees but nevertheless it is a direct response to using the sauna I believe as nothing else has changed in my environment. The heat from the sauna feels soothing on my sore back and shoulders but causes some itching and then later in the day they ache again especially at night. But less so than on the MP and prior to starting the NAC, supplements, etc.
A few important improvements I would like to report on are my liver and gallbladder continue to function without pain most of the time even when I indulge a little more now in my diet. But of course I am still somewhat limited as when I consume too much fatty food the soreness does appear. Nonetheless, it is a vast improvement over before I started NAC, etc. so I am so thankful for the relief. Other improvements are my energy level, mood along with clearer thinking reflected from less pain in my head, teeth & sinuses.
I am now able to take 400 IU of vit. D witout notable sx increase. Also I am taking 12.5 mg. of Iodoral. The vit. D had stopped the scalp sore cycle I had developed on the MP the last couple years. I also noted I have less hair loss after bathing now. The both of them have given me more energy I believe.
Symptoms prevail as my body is plagued with mild pain, burning, aching, pressure, soreness, etc. in many locations; joints, muscles, arteries, veins, etc. At times organs such as heart, liver, gallbladder, spleen, reproductive organs feel deeply sore and stressed but not unbearable. Skin tends to mildly burn frequently in areas & hands tingle often. All of the above have been common for me and I suspect will be last to go after proper treatment on the Cpn protocol.
I plan to continue to increase supplements and time in the FIR sauna. But will stay at present levels this week. My sister has flown home from Taiwan and I want to stay at my best for our visit. My brother is bringing her up late afternoon today and they will be staying a few days to celebrate my birthday this week. They the dearest! So anyway, I wanted to get this update in my blog before I get too busy and anymore time elapsed.
Oh ... just want to add: Kudos to JimK and all of you that worked on the new format here. It is wonderful. Much more soothing as it isn't so "busy" feeling. I do keep my monitor at low brightness as my eyes are burning so the blue tones are soothing then instead of irritating at a brighter level. But having said that ... the pale blue tones make everything clearer to read for my blurry eyes I think. Very nice indeed! A lot of hard work was put into the recent changes and I want to tell you that I really appreciate all you do here. You people ROCK! Blessing upon each of you. Hope you all are having a good day.
