2011 An Off Year For My Breathing

The year began with
some supplement additions, Iodoral--to boost my thyroid function, Black Seed oil to help my immune system. I did not give the Holy Basil a good try I did not want to confuse matters with the Iodoral. Immediately I got a nasty case of angular chelitis--my feeling is that it was a toxic dumping due to all the metal dental work in my mouth. As Iodine pushes the heavy metals out of cells as it is itself absorbed.

My specialist changed my inhaler to Dulera, which suits me a little better because I can use the full dose: 2 puffs 2x a day when I am having issues, and reduce it to 1 or 2 per day when I am more stable. But though I have had a few brief periods of decent breathing and some running. At the moment I am not able to run; I have been using other cardio machines at the gym. I am extremely fatigued.

I lost a very close friend this January and then a very beloved fur child this May. But in the early spring I have begun to learn to paraglide. A perfect sport for someone who is fit in terms of strength, flexibility, and enough cardio to get airborne (with a winch) and land; but somewhat compromised when it comes to cardio endurance. This has been uplifting and has helped me to deal with the great loses.
