Enforced Downtime

Two days a week for the next ten weeks I have to be unplugged. No tv, no computer, no electric car, no cell phone. And I'm actually excited for this adventure.

I work 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. I work at home, I work on the road, I work a lot. But then, I do love my work! Unplugging will be quite the adventure. It will be an exercise in time management, and that would be good. It will give me a chance to write handwritten thank you notes. I'll catch up on my reading. I'll read recipe books and find fun ways to prepare vegetables (which I am not a fan of). And I'll be eliminating toxins from my body. I imagine I will sleep too.

I've been having some trouble over the past year or so with being really tired in the afternoon. I've had to take 3 hours naps. The traditional medicine doctors say there is nothing wrong. Just exercise more, eat right and lose some weight. If you can't get off the couch - it's hard to exercise. I said CAN'T - not WON'T.

I took the advice of a friend and went to a homeopathic, oriental medicine practitioner. The first thing he said to me was "ohhh, your chi is really low". I knew right then I was on the right path.

I will be taking homeopathic remedies for two days a week for ten weeks. It requires I stay away from electromagnetic waves as much as possible. I'm also on a sugar free, no inflammation diet. Lots of fish, chicken and vegetables.

There is one thing I'd like to know. Why isn't there a homeopathic clinic closer than Wisconsin? I've asked around locally - and none. Perhaps one of my readers knows of a place?

If you need to reach me, pick up the telephone! My land line is 641-458-1114. I bet I'll be ready to talk to someone!

Hi Deb,

I know of someone for you in the Metro! Ned Looney, a pharmasist who turned naturopathic medicine, helped me overcome some serious fatigue issues a few years ago. Here is his website.

My blog has included some tips on how I overcame those issues naturally as well. Take care of yourself and get better! www.tabithazesch.com.
