Hi CG! I love your quote too! I love this forum and you seem to be the heart of it! Hope things are improving for you!
I'm in the process of getting snowed in and have plenty to do around this house, but felt the need to check in with you, since I haven't in a while. The reason for the lapses is that once I get in this forum or web in general, it's a couple hours, and other things don't get done that need to, and I'm trying to put my house into order in all the places that got neglected, from either being too busy or tired or sick. I'm also trying to get family help with this, but that is another story!
I have to admit that I am not only drinking caffeinated tea, but back on coffee, but try to stick to organic, so less harmful at least. Still feeling good, and my lymph nodes that were still slightly swollen back in the summer, seem to have gone down. I don't even know when that happened, but only noticed, because my mother-in-law mentioned another family member's lymph nodes, so I felt mine, and other than my neck being stiff from shoveling for three hours a few days before that, the lymph nodes themselves don't seem to be protruding there!
I agree that it is better to take the supplement than eating yogurt for probiotic. And while trying to get and keep yeast under control, it is best to avoid sugar and dairy. And thank you peacesoul for reminding me why to avoid the caffeine! I do try to balance it out with the herbal tea, but for the moment have been turning to coffee. Will cut back down after the holidays!
