I am not a doctor, none of the information on any of these pages pertaining to the Ketogenic Diet/Way of Eating should be considered medical advice and should not replace the care of your personal physician I am simply eager to share the information I have learned while on my own journey to health. Before you embark on this journey, please consult with your physician.
What do you do when you get sick and you’re in ketosis?
Should you go out of ketosis and “give your body fuel to fight”?
Are you kidding me?
Your body is weak, and the last thing you want to do is add inflammatory gluten and sugar and carbs that turn to sugar to just add an extra burden to your body.
No – here’s what I’ve done and it works for me:
Ascorbic acid every 1-2 hours
Anti-Inflammatory Tea – recipe below
Chicken bone broth
Pink Himalayan salt (1/16 teaspoon under the tongue every 2-3 hours)
Lots and lots of water
Your usual meals – fat, fat, and more fat to fuel my body the healthy way
Rest when you can.
Do not stress yourself out or pressure yourself to do more than your body can handle.
Beyond just giving our immune system a good boost, here is an article that shares all of the benefits of ginger.
In my recipe I use ground ginger, only because I don’t have any ginger root on hand.
A lot is being said right now about Turmeric, it is a powerful anti-inflammatory and it helps to dull pain as well. Here is an article with more information.
Anti Inflammatory Tea
1 cup of water
1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger or 1 TB of fresh ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon of ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon of ascorbic acid or lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon of stevia
Boil water and add spices, ascorbic acid or lemon juice, and sweetener. Remove from heat, cover and let sit for 10 minutes.
Do not boil, because boiling will destroy the healing properties in the spices and juice.
Strain into a cup and sip.
This is an amazing healing tea!
