Wahooo – feels nice to be on the other side of this thing. However, I want to start off by saying this virus is no joke. No joke whatsoever and completely unpredictable.
For those of you who are new around here or not familiar, both myself and Dan (my husband), tested positive for COVID-19 a couple weeks ago. While I continue to be without full taste and smell, we can both say we have officially turned the corner.
I felt called to talk a little about journey and the ways we found treatment without going into too much detail because everyone’s journey looks so different with this thing. I don’t want to give anyone any preconceived notions as to what their experience may be like, and instead provide some possibly useful tips to prep your body ahead of time and move through the symptoms as best as possible.
As always this is not intended to come off as medical advice, simply some tips and tricks that worked for us. It is up to you to incorporate them as you see fit, only if they feel in alignment to you and your health.
To start off, let’s answer a few questions:
Did you guys have COVID-19 or the Delta variant?
Have you guys been vaccinated?
Is it really that bad?
Did you guys end up in the hospital?
Did you ever feel like you needed to go to the hospital?
Did you ever have pneumonia after your COVID symptoms wore off?
What were your symptoms like?
Now for a little glimpse into what our COVID-19 protocol ended up looking like:
First of all, to understand what our preventative measures looked like, I could honestly write a book.

I think that about sums it up! I’m probably forgetting something but that’s okay because honestly you have to do what makes sense for you and your healing journey during these times. Again, none of the above is intended to serve as medical advice and is simply a preview into how we treated the virus. If anything, start your treatment upon the smallest of symptoms so that you can stay ahead of it as this virus is no joke. It completely wiped us out and we both know it could have been so much worse if we didn’t have the appropriate procedures in place.
