FOUR THIEVES – more

POST #43
I’m doing the “Master Cleanse” or “Lemonade Diet” for the next couple of weeks.   What made me decide to do it was the itching.  I mean, I get this “morning itch” where I can scratch myself raw.  Sometimes, it would show up at other times.   The doctors don’t have an explanation (We all finally figured out that it WAS NOT bedbugs) .  I quit going to yoga class because I couldn’t control the scratching, and I felt I was distracting people. I took to telling people that I had a blood disorder.  Suddenly (DUH!), I decided to do a Master Cleanse, because that always clears up everything that I have (when I will do it).  I figure it is a good thing to do, no matter what. Like, if I am dying of some weird disease, we will be able to identify it faster (I did Master Cleanse before I had my colonoscopy because I did not want to take all the chemical stuff they told me to take before the colonoscopy — the dcctor and the physician’s assistant both actually asked me what I had done to be so clean).  

Right now, I am really tired of allergies and the “morning itch” so it’s time to go Master Cleanse.  I’m on Day 3, and the morning itch is not so bad, but it is still agonizing.  I don’t want to do chemical (allopathic medicine) interventions if I can avoid it while I am doing a fast.

Suddenly, I’ve remembered Four Thieves Oil It helped with “abominable itch” a while back.  Surely it will help this time.  It smells relatively nice, as well – people will just ask me what perfume I am wearing (it’s spicy).  It is working!

I’m happy.

Now, as I’m sitting here, after making up the new recipe, I’m noticing that my nose is not stuffed or dripping from the allergy I’ve been suffering.  I did not wash my hands after I finished making up the recipe, so they have Four Thieves Oil on them (even though they do not feel oily. Sneezing,  I got the Four Thieves Oil on my nose when I held the tissue to my nose.  Ooh la la! I may actually have an allergy remedy going on here. I’ll carry this bottle in my bag tomorrow for itching and for allergy stuff)
