Hit a brick wall!

Hello, been a few weeks since I've posted and to be honest I've not been feeling that great.
The black dog has been hanging around again and its been hard to motivate myself to do anything other than my womb cancer support stuff. That has to be my priority so when things get a bit tough that's what I concentrate on.

My health has also not been too good recently. The sleepless nights are making the fatigue really bad and that is making the cognitive stuff harder as well. Sometimes I can barely remember what day of the week it is!
The juicing and smoothie making has had to take a back seat as well as my bowels have been out of sorts and I can't risk making things worse.
So all in all, its not been much fun around here for a few weeks.

I've been doing a bit of research in natural treatments for scalp psoriasis, which I developed about 18 months ago. Its gotten really bad over the past 6 months and I think a lot of it is driven by stress. It kicked off just after Mom died at the end of 2013 and has got continuously worse since then.

I don't want to use conventional medication or treatments so am currently using coconut oil and tea tree oil. I melt the coconut oil (put some in a small glass jar and then stand it in a jug of hot water to melt it) and then add drops of tea tree oil. Let cool and then rub into my scalp. Thankfully I don't have it anywhere else apart from a small patch on my face at the side of my nose. I'm hoping that it doesn't spread.

Found a couple of really interesting websites - one especially interesting one was which is about fungal infection and the link with many autoimmune issues - of which one of them is psoriasis! Going to be checking out some of the Youtube videos on that.

Am going to make an effort to get back to the smoothies and juicing and hopefully it won't affect my bowels too much!!!
