Obviously, single parents’ have the same right to sick days off as anyone else, but it’s the lack of support system that puts us on edge. Being the sole provider for your household is a responsibility that is constantly hanging over our heads. So for me, getting sick and taking days off work is not even an option.
For a long time, I struggled with finding the right balance between work, family life, and my health. There never seems to be enough hours in the day and the more tired you get, the more sensitive your immune system gets. I did the whole vitamin C approach for years but with unsatisfactory results. It wasn’t until I read about the wild Chaga mushroom tea in a doctor’s waiting room that I thought it was time to try alternative approaches. It sounded easy to do too. Brew a cup of tea every morning, drink it, and that’s it – it would instantly boost my immune system and give me some sort of superpowers.
You can imagine how I was a little skeptic at the time, thinking how could an all-natural supplement accomplish all that and more. We are so caught up in the conventional medicine theories that we easily lose sight of one crucial factor of all-natural remedies: the fact that they are made with organic ingredients. They might not work as instantaneously but they work for your body not against it. Prevention and maintenance should be the first things on our minds before curing.
Within one month I felt my immune system had improved but also my energy level. I switch from coffee to organic Chaga tea every morning and I haven’t missed the caffeine boost ever since. We tend to think of caffeine as something that gives you the energy you need for the day, but it’s just a quick fix that wears off after some time.
