I’ve been asked a lot lately about how I feel: changes in body and mind or flashes of enlightenment. So I think it’s time to come clean and If you like to picture me as a glowing yogic beacon of health, maybe pick another post to read!
About a year before leaving Australia and every so often I would have an outbreak of pimples on my head, hiding amongst my hair, festering on my follicles. I was a little miffed sure but never went to the Doc, citing my busy lifestyle. Plus after a while, they would subside with the tide, back to the netherworld, triggering neurotic neurons and sprouting crazy thoughts of conquering the world in yogic travel.
So I guess it was only a matter of time before the pimples spread and so brazenly: mounting an assault on my chin. It first happened before I left Australia but with a quick dose of antibiotics to punish an ailment of the flu variety, I quickly got things under control.
I didn’t make the connection between head and chin until Bangkok when it happened again. I administered cream from a Thai chemist and the pimples dived for cover before resurfacing 2 weeks later, freeloading their way to Mumbai. I thought I may be lacking in vitamin deficiency so I tried to eat my way out of trouble, also hoping to put on the 5 kilos I’d lost since January.
It didn’t work and when I arrived in Dubai, Tasha and the other yogis thought, “omg (oh my God) if this is what daily practice does for you, we don’t want a part of it!” I visited the chemist, desperate for something hard core and after a 10 day period of antibiotics, I was restored to my skeletal best. But within two weeks they strutted back. I hit them with a second dose and they disappeared from both head and chin; I thought I had them licked (sorry for that visual).
Now in Budapest I’m feeling strong, have introduced push-ups into my routine and even put on weight. My only setback was getting a chill the other night at a party so I’m nursing the remnants of a cold. But now the pimples are back, starting with seismic eruptions on my head followed by another outbreak on my chin. Great!
What shall I do? Well the antibiotics aren’t working, nor is it good for me and I would rather take a more natural approach. I’ve obviously got some crazy, recurring viral infection, with my immune system unable to cope. So I think it’s time to see a specialist, have some blood tested and perhaps look into colonic irrigation.. ha ha sorry for more disgusting visuals but I’ve no accompanying photos for this post!
