The past couple of months, I haven’t felt like I’m in my top shape. This caused me to go to see the doctor which in turn caused me to get an ultrasound to check for tumors (the doctor wanted to rule out possibilities). What it boiled down to was that I had slept on an air mattress and the softness, while comfortable, wasn’t good for my lower back. This caused pain elsewhere in my body.
The doctor recommended a regime of ibuprofen for a couple of weeks, and I did this. It helped a little, but that pain is still there. Add on top of that the pain I’ve suffered from flag football practices in the past few weeks (practices are over now and our tournament is on Saturday). I’m feeling old, but I still want to be able to do things. Nothing seems to be helping. The doctor said if it was still bothering me come November before I leave, he’ll okay it for me to see a specialist when I get home. I can’t wait that long. This pain sucks.
Recently I came across a posting, on Google+ I think, that suggested how wonderful parsley is and it can be boiled into a drink to get the benefits. I looked into it further and it seems parsley is a wonderful this to eat. I set out to the store to buy some and came home with two 70g bundles for a total of 3.50 UAH (about 1/4 lb. for about $0.50). I made two large pots of juice with it. I tried some and it tastes great.
So what do you think? Did I buy snake oil? Does anyone have experience with this that might suggest an improvement? I’m just trying to feel better.
