Optimum Health!, Issue #025 - Falling Off The Wagon
December 21, 2018
|It's Holiday Time! Prostates beware!
When We Fall Off The Wagon
Do you know that old expression: "He fell off the wagon." It means he started drinking again... Heavily.
Boy oh Boy! I'm the guy writing these eZines and I'm the guy who gave himself painful prostatitis again!
Yep! And, I knew it would probably happen.
I had quite a summer. I went to China for the first time with my wife. Talk about great food! And, yes, I walked The Chinese Wall. Visited Confucius' Temple... Had a fantastic time. AND, drank some Great Beer. Delicious stuff! And, a lot of it. Unknown to most of us Westerners, the Chinese have some super delicious brews. That they don't export.
Well, I don't know how many of you know I love beer. LOVE it! But, I normally never drink it. Why? Because it gives me terrible prostatitis. So, I gave it up long ago.
But, on this trip I was compelled to just go crazy.
Yep! My prostate swelled and hurt and generally made me very uncomfortable. And, that doesn't usually happen overnight.
Once I Got Started, Look Out!!Those of you who know me, know that I tend to do nothing in moderation. At least when I'm having fun.
Well I had just a half glass. Then a glass. Then beer every night. It was quite wonderful!
And, when the little annoying signs started down below, I thought "They're not too bad.". Now, this is from a guy who has abstained from his brew for about 15 years. Yes, 15 years.
I woke up one day with a prostate that just plain was punishing me. I deserved it of course. And, I knew better. But, I was enjoying myself so much that I just plain didn't care.
Until it became a painful awful problem.....
I knew better. But, sometimes you just got to let go. And, I did.
So, after 15 years of complete prostate health, I was back at square one. The difference being, I knew what to do. After the big pain problem returned (I told myself I had become immune.... Yeah. Right...) I quit the beer completely. I got my Silver Water, started back with my Vibratory Massaging, and in short order: sent my prostatitis packing.
The Holidays Are ComingYes, the Holidays are coming. A lot of you are going to binge and do all the things you did way back when your prostate was a mess. And, you're probably going to do all the wrong things knowingly.
Now. It may be your turn.
If you do all kinds of craziness and your prostate problems come back, don't start thinking you're body is not working right anymore.
IT'S WORKING EXACTLY RIGHT.
It's just responding to all the stuff that caused your prostate problems in the first place.
Don't beat yourself up for it. We all fall off the wagon occasionally. And, it's OK. We're all human.
Sometimes we get away with it. Sometimes we don't.
Here's The FixWhen you notice things aren't going well down there, especially after a long period of great health, just take a look at what you've been doing differently. Then get yourself back on the wagon.
Get back to the things that made you well in the first place. I think you'll be surprised to see how well they can work again! And, if you've been taking care of yourself for a long time, you'll probably find your results come even quicker this time.
Happy Holidays!May you and those you love have a Very Happy Holiday Season filled with lots of Love and Laughter.
