I was never a runner but this year I promised myself I would try something different. It’s not as much about exercising and keeping myself fit as it is about pushing my boundaries and see how far I can go. Ever since I found a new meaning in my life that I’ve been doing these little challenges. The most recent are doing a 5k run and I anticipate the first marathon in the future if this goes well.
My main concern when I started to practice was the pain in my joints, especially my left knee and ankle. I don’t know what’s up with the left side, but it sure is a lot more painful than the right one. Keeping a clear head so I can focus on achieving my goal is a top priority, so no way I was getting painkillers from the local pharmacy. Instead, I went into the health store looking for herbal remedies with impressive anti-inflammatory properties.
The minute I said impressive anti-inflammatory properties, the employee laughed and said: “aisle 4, look for Chaga Earth organic Chaga powder capsules or wild Chaga mushroom tea”. Yes, it was that simple. Because there is nothing out there as complete and effective as Chaga Earth wild Chaga mushroom tea. I sometimes use the capsules if I’m in a rush but my favorite ritual starts with a hot cup of tea in the morning before my training.
The pain in my joints is gone and my energy levels are up! I felt like I cleansed my body from the inside out. I’m considering ditching the 5k and begin practicing for the marathon instead.
