Today I feel that I have the strength to write as I am getting much better and I have been wanting to share this with you but the fogginess in my head and the cough in my throat and later the shortness of the breath I was experiencing ...did not allow me to formulate words properly to write ...but before I share with you the sickness I went through I like to share with you happy thoughts and the celebration of spring.
Today is the first day of spring, the celebration of the new day "NoRooz" in Iran. I was born there and after my high school graduation migrated to United States and been living here many years. People from all over the world celebrate this tradition that has been around for thousands of years. Traditionally, people go visit each other and drink tea and eat sweets, the elders give gifts to youngers and the whole country celebrates but it is different today because people are trapped in their houses to stay safe and prevent spread of disease.
So now that I shared with you my happy thoughts...I like to share with you my experience with the virus.
I have been sick the last 8 days, I was doing okay taking vitamin C, D3 and turmeric pills the first two days but the virus traveled to my respiratory system and then it was a different story from there on .... because I was going through shortness of breath and sometimes I felt like being choked in my throat. I remember I was sleeping in my bed separate from my husband bed and I thought to myself this virus is in the dangerous spot to be...I mean... around my heart and lungs and I thought..oh my God....
What if it travels to my heart? they say do not get out of the house and what if it gets worse? Who is going to take care of me, I certainly did not want to end up in the hospital...I mean, I tell you...I went to grocery store to pick up a few item to have in the house so that I did not need to get out of the house for a couple weeks and I came back with a virus!! Imagine that!!
In that moment..I really became aware, it was a moment of awakening, I could be dead in my bed if I did not pay attention to what was going on, I thought to myself, this is why this virus is killing people. We basically live with one breath at a time and if the one breath gets blocked in less than a second then that is it...it ends lives and this is why this virus is so dangerous, it likes to reside in respiratory system.
so that night I decided that I want to live and I said to myself that the power of my heart is stronger than this virus. I thought the virus is like a few nanometer in size as compared to our body made of billions of cells to protect and keep us healthy and having so much capabilities.
The emphasize must be on raising our immunity. We must raise our body immunity system globally, we must eat superfoods, take multi vitamins anything that raises the body immunity.
So I made it through that night and found faith in me that I can get through this. The next day, I told my sister who is a doctor that I had shortness of breath and she told me to breath through the hot steam water and also sent me a link from another doctor who recommended it as well and the reason behind it is to target the virus in the respiratory system...
it becomes weaker and eventually gets destroyed with hot temperature (hot steam). They recommended that I do this every day and everybody in the household must do it too to raise their immunity and prevent it from spreading. I have been doing it for the past six days and it is working like a miracle. The first time I did it, it caused coughing in me followed by mucus coming out of chest area which was good. I felt my chest was opening up and I was breathing much better.
Today, I am coughing very little and I feel I am defeating the virus in me, thanks God.
Here is the instruction:
Boil some water and put it aside
Cover the head with scarf or towel
Place the head above over the pot
Breath in and out through steam
Inhale again and hold the breath for 4 second and let it out breath normally
Do a few more inhale and exhale
This home remedy must be done every day and everybody must do it to keep the virus away. Please share if it resonates with you. Thank You.
I understand that we all have different belief systems and if it resonates with you, great! makes me happy and if it don't ...then let it go.
We in each moment have a choice and we act based on that choice we make. I wish everybody safety, health and peace,
with love and gratitude.
