I’m on the second day of a 30 day doTERRA cleanse & have nearly removed caffeine from my routine - which has caused a little Head Tension - About two years ago I stopped using ibuprofen all together because of having access to my doTERRA oils & deep blue complex (my new natural anti-inflammatory version of ibuprofen) The best solution I have found is to use doTERRA PastTense topically along my hairline where the discomfort is centered. In addition I will use my thumb to apply frankincense & lavender to the roof of my mouth. Works like a charm! Sometimes I add deep blue rub to the base of my neck if the tension persists.
Hit the three week mark today! I woke up from a great night of sleep, which has been rare recently and I was so excited for today! Three weeks; halfway through the initial recovery and closer to getting released to normal daily activities. Unfortunately, when I got out of bed I was faced with some pain and swelling which quickly reminded me that I'm ONLY three weeks out. So I grabbed my diffuser bracelets and knitting and parked myself on the couch for the day. Yes, I was a little annoyed that I wouldn't be able to get out of the house, much less tackle that step goal my doctor gave me, but being negative and upset gets me nowhere. Instead, I write down at least 3 positive things about the day. You would be amazed how much of a difference that makes!!
