An Ounce a Day
By Terri Bonin
Have you ever heard the saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”? Well, there’s a similar saying that floats around certain health circles. We like to say that an ounce a day keeps the doctor away. An ounce of what you ask? It’s like liquid gold. Chock-full of antioxidants just one ounce of this drink daily will change your wellness. I have to confess that I ran out of this goodness a couple of weeks ago for the first time in ages. I was so busy I had simply forgotten to order more!
What happened next was unfortunate and honestly, I didn’t even piece it together until…
This week! I was deciding what to order in my Young Living wellness box this month (y’all, we get to change up our orders every single month) and I naturally put Ningxia Red on my order as usual. That’s when it hit me! I got REALLY sick two weeks ago and I thought it was just because my body had been running on empty for a while. When I looked back at the timing of when I ran out of Ningxia to when I got so sick I gasped. It was a few days later! Sometimes I think I take for granted how healthy I am all the time and I forget about the supplements and products I take daily to make sure I stay that way. I ran out of Ningxia and then I got a nasty cold. Hmmmm! Suspicious!
I’ve learned my lesson y’all! I am NOT going to run out of Ningxia again! When you’ve got a good thing going you really shouldn’t mess with it. Learn from my mistakes friend, don’t run out of Ningxia!
