My condition was severe enough to warrant a course of antibiotics every few months and taking allergy jabs as well.
Around Ramadhan last year I started juicing. The funny thing was I started juicing because it was recommended by ex schoolmate who sold me collagen drinks (don't ask).
She said before I start drinking the collagen drinks I should detox my body first. Or else it doesn't matter how many supplements I consume because my body won't be able to absorb it. I realized she was spot on about this when I did some research on my own.
So I detoxed by juicing apple and celery. Pretty tame stuff compared to what I juice now. Even back then I was impressed that I could feel some positive changes to how I was feeling and how my body reacts to juicing.
And one year on...
- I have yet to take any antibiotics (for eczema or any other kind of illness)
- I still get skin inflammation but it's definitely controllable without having to resort to medication and steroid creams
- I recover quickly from the flu
Just like training, juicing has become a lifestyle for me. I've a feeling I'll be sticking to my juicing regiment throughout my lifetime.
