Matt has had a cold for a few weeks. He has been complaining about it for a while. I have given him absolutely no sympathy at all.
He has also been very sharing and now given it to me too. I have been doing really well up until now – this is the first time I have got anything. It’s probably because I didn’t give Matt enough sympathy!
So when I have a cold I would always dose myself up with cough syrup,Strepsils, cough sweets, lemsips anything to make me feel better.
The only thing with that is they all contain lots of sugar. With all the healthy eating I have been doing this year, cold and flu medication is something I shouldn’t be having.
I am also doing well on my detox, so having medication to help my cold will totally ruin it. So I am not taking anything for the cold. I am suffering in silence – well suffering as I don’t think that the family would say I am being that silent.
I started my healthy eating back in January and this is the first time I have got sick. Earlier on in the year a lot of people got colds but not me. I seemed to avoid it.
Why this year have I mostly managed to avoid it but not at all in previous years? My only explanation is it has to be the food. One thing I have learnt this year is that sugar has a lot to answer for and, according to Jenny, it can also contribute to getting colds.
So it also doesn’t make sense that the remedies for a cold are full of sugar. How can the thing that cause it to happen be the remedy too?
I think the reason that I caught a cold this time is because I am on a detox. They can make you a little rundown which means I am more susceptible.
The detox last time was a complete blood sugar meltdown but this time it is working deeper in my liver function and re-presenting toxins from my fat cells back into my system.
So really I blame this cold on what I ate last year rather the good things I am doing this year.
As for the detox, today has been a really good day – I haven’t really felt hungry and having protein back is a big bonus.
