31: Week 3

So far so good! The job is going well! I get there later in there day and all the folks who are still in Academy Bay are still around. By the time a couple hours pass, they are gone and it feels like there is no one there except the two ladies in my row.

My neighbor is super helpful and I appreciate her knowledge of all things 31. The girl who was in my training class is a few cubicles down, but we get to whisper-holler to each other when we’re stumped. The team leads are really helpful too. The company grows exponentially every day so it’s pretty much mandatory to ‘ask if you are not sure’. Someone will know.

The best part is being able to be in touch with my friend who works at Easton. She told me about 31 and I was hired faster than I expected. She’s planning her wedding for June. It’s been great to be in touch about work at work and then the wedding before or after work.

At lunch, it seemed like there was a vacuum at work. I hardly saw anyone, but apparently there were more people there than I thought. I shuffled in ‘Subway’ and sat with my ‘dinner’ for my ‘lunch break’. Not a soul in sight. One fellow meandered in with his tea, then another, then another. Before ya knew it, I was surrounded by folks that I suspect work in the warehouse. I didn’t see anyone in monogramming.

At the last break, there was still little sign of life. Finally, when my fellow newbie and I went to our cars to go home, there were tons of people in the parking lot! Whew! Good to know!

The people are friendly, the consultants just want information and a friendly voice, the customers wanna be consultants. I couldn’t ask for anything better.

Adrenal Plus, Iodine & Me: Month 11

While I’m watching Pierce Brosnan make a fool of himself on Mama Mia!, I am going to write this… attempting to not cry.

It’s been been about 11 months since I did the CNE/Biomeridian Test at Dr. Scott‘s. Originally, he suggested that I take Immuplex because I had two surgeries within a 6 month period back in 2009. This supplement boosted my immune system. He also suggested that I take Adrenal Plus to support my adrenals as they were, according to the Biomeridian test, overtaxed. Finally, after I had read a book of his on iodine and its benefits, I began also taking Iodoral (iodine/iodide). Iodoral supports many organs, but in this case, the most important for me is my Thyroid gland. I’d once been told that I had hypothyroidism.

After a couple months, I dropped off taking Immuplex. I have since continued with Adrenal Plus and Iodoral.

Here’s the kicker:

Supplements are most helpful with a regular routine and healthy sleep pattern. The past week has had me up and at ’em every day at 7:15 to get to work… aside from Wednesday when the trees came tumbling down due to the wacky weather. I’ve noticed that it is muuuch easier to feel like I want to wake up early and not sleep in avoiding the day.

Now I know what Dr. Scott was talking about. He said your adrenals are the ones that help your ‘get up and go’ in the morning, it’s how your stress handler, it’s your ‘fight or flight’ too. If your sleep pattern is inconsistent, it may be likely that anything a person tries to ‘feel better’ will not help that person feel better.

Moral of the story: supplements are fantastic, homeopathic remedies are wonderful, but the most helpful part of your health is when and how well you sleep.
