(Me and Laura, one of my basketball players, at her graduation last week)
Hi, healers! I just wanted to give you a little update. I have been doing PT three times a week for 2-3 hours at a time (lots of strengthening and stretching along with elliptical and treadmill warm ups). On the off days, I am able to go for hilly walks that last anywhere from 25-45 minnutes. I have been taking the difficulty of PT so well that we even introduced running for a few minutes on the treadmill at the end of my sessions. It obviously hurts, but we take it right to the edge of a flare, and I go home and contain it with lots of alkaline and anti-inflammatory foods and drinks. By the next day, I am feeling back to normal.
If you have any questions, let me know. A raw vegan diet is EVERYTHING right now. It is helping me recover quickly and contain flares. Remember, I don't take any medication. Not even advil.
I have to jet, but I will write again soon with more information as I continue on this healing journey.
