I am not a Doctor nor do I claim to have cures; I suggest you speak to your own Doctor if anything on this post resonates with you. That being said, my western Doctors were not able to help me during these difficult times. So I delved on a research adventure for other therapies.
This may come as a surprise to some and others closer to me know very well how long I have been battling with my post corona symptoms. I am what you consider a ¨Long Hauler¨ but I have chosen a path of research, alternative therapies and ultimately I trust that I will heal 100%. Throughout my research I have come across so many practitioners and different healing modalities, I think there is value in sharing them.
I want to talk about my journey because I feel that when we go to numerous Dr’s and nobody can give you any definitive answers, it can become a very frustrating and lonely journey.
I finally sought out a Naturopath, Dr Bonnie Marsh, who decided to walk the journey of healing with me and guided me into taking matters into my own hands! Obviously I highly recommend her and after hours and hours sitting in her practice I could say I became somewhat of an apprentice! I am ever so grateful to have her guidance in my life and hope I can share some of her knowledge with you too.
Firstly I would like to talk about Ozone Therapy I was previously exposed to ozone therapy in the south of Germany; turns out that my own grandfather had a “Sanatorium”, a kind of balnearium where Ozone therapy was used, we are talking about 70 years ago. Little did I know that I would one day own my whole set up, and would be treating myself at home. The O3 Molecule created by ozone is a potent gas that kills virus, bacteria and pathogens upon contact. With ozone less is more but frequency is key. So the healing process is slow but long lasting. I would like to add that there have been great results with auto immune diseases, lymes, cancer and other conditions using Ozone Therapy.
Bonnie also introduced me to Hydrogen therapy. I have not yet purchased my own set up but in the meantime I take Oral Molecular Hydrogen which according to numerous studies is just as effective as inhaling the Brown’s Gas itself.
From all the research I have been doing, and together with my intuition, I felt that anything that activated my circulation, cleansed my blood or was detoxifying, would be beneficial; I continued finding products that worked for the protocol I had started creating for myself.
To give you an idea of what a treatment day looks like for me: I start my day with a glass of water with lemon and pharmaceutical grade baking soda; after waiting a few hours I then take a glass of water with Molecular Hydrogen. Then I do my ozone treatment sometimes I do an insufflation (15/30 min.) and other times if I am more rushed I just do the suppositories. Both are equally good treatments for me. If you have questions about these modalities feel free to reach out to me and I can share more information or speak to your local naturopath to seek out your own treatments.
Infra Red therapy is also super beneficial and works for me and I like to lay on my amethyst mat early in the evening before bed, to be honest in my longterm plans I will own my very own infra red sauna one day which is my top choice for infra red therapy…. again I am not advising anyone what they should do, I am simply sharing my own experience and you can do your own research from there.
Music has also been very healing for me and I have created some amazing healing playlists on soundcloud that help me disconnect and help me envision a healed version of myself. Yoga and Meditation would also be certainly beneficial and learning breathing techniques. This book is also great resource ¨Breath”
We are all different and our needs are different but if any of this information resonates with you then you should look into it further. My intuition just kept telling me to oxygenate my cells, my system, my lungs and this is how I came to find all of these modalities.
After pumping my body with oxygen I then (a few hours later) take antioxidant supplements to remove the toxins from my body and am in an ebb and flow of oxygenating and detoxing. I like to alternate the use of vitamin D3, zinc, vitamin E, CoQ10, magnesium and selenium. Ask your Doctor which supplements would be right for you, the ones I listed are the brands I prefer for myself.
This is the best remedy I have found for myself and the closest I have come to feeling well again. I still have harder days than others, especially if my rest is affected which happens a little too much as I am a mother of a toddler but I see the end of the tunnel.
If you have found other things that work for you I would love to hear about them in the comments below, it is a time for us to share are knowledge and experience with one another as we are all in a learning process.
I hope this article brings hope, love and new ideas to some.
In healing together,
