Homeopathic remedies and elective dental surgery

Day 46: had a fab fab fab time playing comedy concert at UU Aiken! Then got back to my sister's house, hungry. After-show hungry, which can be dangerous. Judgment impaired!

I did the impossible in one way: reached into a bag of Lay's and ate just one. Yeah- Just one!

Saw some cooked chicken in fridge, had a bunch of that and wasabi popped snap peas. Not bad. A bit caloric and processed but not unforgivable.

My niece is having a birthday sleepover (bunch of 10-year-old girls), and cake was on the counter calling to me. Of course I can't have cake (gluten), but I did snarf about 1/2 teaspoon of frosting off the part of the tray that no longer had cake on it.

Sadly, sugar still tastes fantastic. Wish I'd lose my taste for it altogether!

I have begun a series of homeopathic remedies (drops under tongue, 2x/day) in preparation for dental surgery.

I almost can't believe I'm volunteering for this, but I've decided to have elective dental surgery. And I don't mean cosmetic.

I've been saying for a long time that my health went south right after I got my wisdom teeth extracted. I have a holistic dentist now, and he was surprised at how confidently I said this.

It turns out that these holes can close off as they heal, but leave a cavitation that can fill with bacteria, resulting in a slow Constant drip of bacteria into your bloodstream.

So, we are going to open up two of the four sites where my teeth were removed, drill out any dead bone that might've been left, put in a tiny piece of human bone and then my own bone will go around it. It's not covered by dental insurance, I'm not looking forward to it, but I feel very deeply that this is the right move for me.

Proving once again- from high colonics to sticking onions on my feet to signing up and paying out-of-pocket for a really unpleasant dental procedure: I will do anything to be healthy.

So far so good. I feel so much better now than I have in years. I only hope that this dental surgery move me forward and is not a setback. Wish me the best! It won't happen for about another three weeks.

Meanwhile I will continue to build up my health and use the homeopathic remedies in preparation for the procedure.
