For the first time in over 2 yrs I am sick and I have caught a stomach bug. My boys have had it between the 2 of them for around 2 weeks. I have always been lucky in that I've never really picked up the sicknesses my kids get and we are never sick at the same time. It crossed over to my fiance on Sunday. My symptoms started late last night.
My questions are:
First of all, why did I even get sick to begin with? I've been taking 10-15k iu VitaminD per day along with 3600mg Omega 3 fish oil capsules and my other supplements. I've been doing a lot of IFing lately to try to break my weightloss plateau. My diet has been clean.
Is it a known phenomenon for mothers to not pick up the sicknesses of their children directly? If that is the case perhaps my fiance was the bridge.
I have 2 Tbls of Apple Cider Vinegar in some water, that always seems to help right away (and I repeat this a couple times a day). And I take lots of extra probiotic tabs, or Kefir, or sauerkraut, always seems to kick it fast.
I think now we are more exposed to more things, more illness to combat on a daily basis. But it seems taking the right steps can help shorten the illness.....
