Today I am a bit annoyed; I am tired and feeling down, mashaallah. Baby is still teething and having an eye infection as well. The boys still cough and I am having a little cold as well. I didn’t have had any evening this week for myself. My back hurts from carrying baby around and my head aches from the warm-alpine-wind and the heavy cloudy weather.
But hey friends, this wouldn’t be my place without a positive view and a bit of gratitude… So let’s try to see the things in a better light…
I am really really thankful that full moon is over since last Sunday, because we feel already much more relaxed over here. And I am so very thankful to have my natural medicine reservoir here. I rely so much on homeopathy and biochemic-cell-salts.
I don’t believe in the healthy effects of antibiotics and chemical medicine – yes, in some serious cases they are great and may help a lot, alhamdulillah – but in general I would always suggest trying natural medicine first. I believe in the importance to look for the causes of an illness and to heal at the bases and not simply to try to get rid of the superficial pain. I believe in the importance to help the body to recover itself – entirely.
Oh my, do you know the comfort of a warm hot-water-bottle, the healing effects of herbal tea with a spoon of real honey, the blessing of onions on an infected ear or olive oil on the bronchial tubes?
And then those little pills that magically help the body to get back its own healing power: Magnesium, Calcium, Chamomilla, Belladonna, Silicea… so many blessings directly taken out of nature. Subhanallah, some of them help so quick that it seems really unbelievable sometimes. Allah really provided a remedy for all illnesses out there in nature.
So we are talking in Latin words and numbers here these days: “can I have a hot-seven”, “I need a number five pill”, “where are the pulsatilla-pills”… and alhamdulillah, it helps.
On the nourished-mama-blog I was reminded of another great healthy thing: pulling oil.
I did it a long time ago and already knew about its healthy benefits, but unfortunately forgot about it. So now I wanna try again to detoxify my body in the mornings by chewing a tablespoon of oil in my mouth, inchaallah.
Realizing all these blessings, I feel already much better and am looking forward to a weekend with hubby, friends and a spring-clean of my body…
What are your natural magic helpers, friends?
Happy healthy weekend!
