I’m an Endosister on CD1. And things have been rough — already threw up today, which is not entirely usual for me. Had to move an appointment to tomorrow, and there is so much blood … I’m exhausted. My lucky break today is that my days off had to be broken up this week so all I have to do today is care for my health.
I also am an essential oil using & loving skeptic — I joined doTerra because I loved their headache oil blend and their PMS oil blend works so well for me, but I’m one of those people who generally has to experience it to believe it. So I can’t think of a better time for my personal Deep Blue Challenge. This is a new supplement with anti-inflammatory ingredients, including frankincense, curcumin from turmeric (which we are all told to use to reduce inflammation!), ginger & more.
Several women in my group have Endometriosis and have been raving about this as a way to reduce their pain. I became a member of doTerra because their products work for me (and hey baby, those wholesale discounts are sexy!), and I will always be honest with you that this is a group in which I’m enrolled. With ingredients like these, I definitely have nothing to lose and everything to gain. I’ll keep you all posted on my results! You can follow my oil adventures on mydoterra.com/oilsbychanel, which has links to my Pinterest and Twitter as well. I’ll try to keep up on this blog as well.
Will I give up my codeine? Not if I don’t have to, kids! 🙅🙅🙅 But there’s no reason we can’t combine natural methods with our pain meds! I’ve tried all the chemicals and I can’t say my life is worse for pharmacology. But I will try anything and everything.
