The Daily Fight Series

file7651303838510I admit that I haven’t posted in a little while, but it wasn’t on purpose. I was sick with the flu for over a month and it took me out completely. I was forced to stay in bed and just wait it out for my body to heal. However, the flu got worse to a dangerous point and I went to the urgent care hospital center to seek help. I had bronchitis and other infections. It took two bouts of antibiotics to get my body back to a positive healing state. In many ways I looked like the kitty in this photo ha!
Some great things happened this month that I was unsure if it would happen. All I know that is I no longer feel the heavy stress that I used to feel and now I can concentrate on feeling better.
I’m thankful for the people I have met through the power of the internet who have been a big force of encouragement in my life. It took time for me to come around and feel hope. Over time the light of positivity grew in my heart and a little flower of hope was planted. It brought about great things that has completely changed my life forever.

How to Relieve Constipation

ConstipationThere is nothing worse that not being able to go when you want to and sitting there hurting wishing that nature will take course.  It’s not a funny topic nor an embarrassing issue to discuss.  It’s a debilitating issue to deal with but the good news there are various remedies that will help to ease and prevent the situation from occurring in the future.

1.  Drink plenty of water each day of at least 20 ounces after you wake up in the morning.  Drinking approximately 10 to 12 glasses of water each day and it’s the best way to flush toxins out of the body.  Avoid drinking sugary drinks such juice and soda as they contain copious amounts of sugar that can worsen constipation symptoms.  Constipation occurs due to lack of adequate liquids in the body.
2. Try eating a ripe banana with a glass of warm milk.  Chew the banana thoroughly and drink the warm milk slowly instead of gulping it down.
3.  Consume several prunes or drink one to two glasses of prune juice.  Prunes are high in fiber they contain a substance called sorbitol which is stool-laxative that helps with relieving symptoms of constipation. The prunes contain more sorbitol than prune juice.  Skip eating foods that are high in sugar such as cookies and candy.  You can still have those foods but consume them in moderation.
4.  Exercise is an important part of life and it’s needed for increasing function in the body.  Exercise by keeping your body moving through going out for walks for at least 20-30 minutes to promote good bowel movements regularly.
5.  Finally this is a difficult option but it does work. Squat down to ease out the excrement by propping your feet on a child’s step stool and raise up your knees while sitting on the toilet.

Constipation is a continuous issue that many people including myself have experienced.  Unfortunately, I’m allergic to bananas but I do eat prunes and apples to keep things going and moving along in my system.  I drink several large bottles of room temperature water throughout the day and I exercise several times per week.

Kickstart Up My Future

bookpencilWow! I have had such a busy week that I didn’t get a chance to finish my posts for this week.  I decided to make this a personal blog post as this is after all my blog.  I have been battling with various health ailments which unfortunately prevented me from being able to write.  I’m always adjusting and working on better plans to help me deal with major hiccups like this.  All I can do is hang in there and do the best that I can.

On that note I decided that I need to go after the business tools to help me meet my goals.  So you will see a GoFundMe campaign starting next month and I encourage you to support my cause.  I see something great and magnificent in my future but I need help to get there.  For the first time in a long time I am seeking help.  It took a lot out of me to put aside my pride and allow others to help me.  While I am doing the best that I can to help myself, I will need the assistance from others too.  Thank you and Happy Holidays!
