Health - WTF!

Over the last four or five months a number of things have happened that have led to my feeling better than I have for a long, long, long time.

The first has to do with a chronic post-nasal drip and sinus issue. It seems to have gone away. I got some significant relief a couple of years ago from the use of acupuncture. But this summer in response to the onset of asthma my doctor gave me a mild anti-allergy medication. The combination seems to have almost completely eliminated all those issues that caused me to be trying to clear my throat constantly, have stuff dripping down causing coughing and bunches of other stuff.

The second has to do with muscle pain. I used to have to get up during the night to take pain killers so I could sleep. I started taking turmeric about a year and half ago. That helped a lot. And then we got our memory foam mattress. That has seemed to help even more. For whatever reason, muscle pain as a detriment to sleep has seemed to disappear.

I also have more energy. I think a lot of that has to do with the success of my transitioned life that seems to be in almost perfect balance.

As in all things, I am exceedingly grateful and giving of thanks.

That is really terrific! It's amazing how significant constant small health problems can be. What a great Christmas present for you.

I am actively looking for how I can combat post-nasal drip, this x2 year cough is insufferable. I am delighted that you got these chronic issues resolved. Health is the most important gift we overlook.
