I hate being sick as much as the next person but every time I saw a doctor about it, I would come home with a bag full of prescribed pills that I was supposed to take every day but forgot to continue three weeks later. Obviously, I would fall sick again, sooner than expected, and the whole cycle resumed. This included vitamins, cough syrup, ear drops, aspirin, anti-inflammatory, painkillers, you name it. My immune system was so fragile, I could almost recite theses pills’ composition by heart. That’s how much I depended on them and that’s how much medication I took throughout the year.
If you told me then that medication was not the way to go and that I was looking at it from the wrong perspective, I would have told you to take a hike, as I blew my nose loudly. What else cures a cold if not for some hot lemon tea with honey and a handful of very effective, and very chemical, prescribed pills?
Here is why I was getting this wrong the whole time. I was focusing on curing and not on preventing. The more medicine I took to quickly repair the damage, the harder it was for my body to bounce back and be ready for the next round of cold. And this went on for years, until I found Chaga Earth’s organic Chaga tea, by accident, on my sister in law’s kitchen counter. Curious, I asked what this strange tea was and what she used it for. The minute she said “it boosts the immune system” it was like making a dream coming true. I could not believe it that the answer to my problems had been on her countertop all this time without me noticing it!
Better late than sorry, isn’t that what they say? I’ve been drinking wild Chaga mushroom tea for two months now and, knock on wood, haven’t been sick yet.
