Chest Infection and Running

I have a slight chest infection. And If I were to go to the doctor with every chest infection, I would be there once every two months. I cannot take the stronger medications that the doc can give me, due to side effects, so I continue my fitness regime in order to strengthen my lungs. And I ran out of colloidal silver, which I use sparingly, maybe one week a month, in order to control chest infections. At the moment, my optimal chest health is essential. I am training for a half-marathon, and my training has slipped back with this infection. I am back to running only 30 minutes at any one time.

Yesterday, I ran by the beach whilst rubbing the finger points (since I couldn´t tap in public) and simply kept pondering my dilemma over and over again. I had bought olive leaf extract simply because my spouse can take it and not the silver (we both have a slight chest infection). The rubbing whilst focusing on my issue helped me with a great insight. I had been worried about buying two things, the olive leaf extract and the colloidal silver, because of budget. We had a lot of payments going out at the end of the month and had to be careful. However, it was a false economy, because it would be cheaper for me to have the silver and my spouse to have the olive leaf extract. This is because the silver is cheaper. So instead of us both using an expensive product, I could use the cheaper one which my chest does much better on. The colloidal silver works for me within 20 minutes. So if one day I wake up with the slightest chest infection, I can take the silver and run.  And then my chest is fine.

Of course, I´m not a doctor or herbalist and so I am not giving any advice here. Rather, I am sharing my experience of how tapping helped me to gain insights and solve a problem.  I went running this morning and the only reason why I had to be limited to half an  hour was that it was all the time I had available  🙂
When you have a chronic physical condition, anything that either emotionally or physically has a negative impact on you can make the condition worse. EFT is one way of throwing away the emotional rubbish collecting in your system. In the same way that we dispose of our household rubbish regularly for home cleanliness and hygiene, I use EFT to dispose of negative emotions for my optimal physical health. My health was not always as good as this. Please go back to around 2005 on this blog to get to the worst postings, if you are looking for how to tap for those really bad days of health.

Decision-Time – Two Oceans or Darling For First Half-Marathon?

Decision-time came today, where I had to decide whether to enter for the Two Oceans half-marathon or do a smaller half-marathon as my first. Of those, I fancied the Darling half-marathon on 21st May 2011, and called and got the details for comparison.  So I am tapping as I read and re-read the following factors.

  • My spouse has lost an important contract as an IT contractor three months ago (when the company went bust owing 4 months pay), and although we are recovering well from it, and I am blessed with an abundance of lovely clients, I am loathe to spend the Two Oceans entry fee just now when it is needed for other things (as has been the case for the last two months).
  • Although I am making phenomenal progress with distance and stamina, my speed is still slow (though improving).
  • The Darling half-marathon is:
    • About a fourth of the price for me as a non-South African.
    • Only about 700 entrants compared to 11500.
    • Three weeks later, which means three weeks extra training time working on my speed. And since I am progressing 0.1 km/hour faster per week, that means an extra 0.3 km/hour added to my speed).
    • Starts at 8:30 instead of 6 am (a big plus for a non-morning person).

OK, decision made. My first half-marathon will be at Darling on 21st May 2011  🙂
