My COVID-19 Experience

By Bren Gonzalez

I’m a true believer that everything happens for a reason. My path in life seems to have been set up for me to be introduced to COVID 19 . I am grateful to be able to share my symptoms and my personal experience.

For ten days I experienced all the symptoms and then some of COVID19. On a midweek day I started having dizzy spells, not common for me , and on sudden chest pain. So because the last five months have possibly caught up to me I attributed it to stress and an anxiety attack . So I went to my meditation spot aka my closet and allowed myself to set still. Once that passed I went on with my day . Two days later it started with ear pain , fever with 101 temp and all the signs of an infection for which I thought was maybe my ears.  I began to feel extremely tired, weak, had headaches and slept most days , lost my appetite and sense of smell and taste. This was the first five days and I then received a message that I had been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID19 along with others that had been exposed and that I know not all but some others also tested positive. I then said well it’s definitely not an ear infection!!!!!!!But boy I wish it was! 

So as I reached my 10th day having a stuffy nose; never having a cough, or sore throat, starting to feel better (I had not had a fever for 72 hours ) I got a cough attack out of nowhere which caused severe shortness of breath. I then began to cough up phlegm for a few hours using the shower evaporation with my essential oils to assist me along the way. 

As the next day rolled around I was remembering how I felt right before the cough attack and this weird feeling like goosebumps and negativity felt rooted throughout my body , I didn’t want to talk , watch tv or speak and was feeling very depressed . Keep in mind I had been in my room for just about two weeks which meant I couldn’t touch or be in the same room with my children, THAT WAS THE HARDEST PART FROM MY ENTIRE EXPERIENCE. I have this book of Healing Prayers on my bedside so I opened it and began to read it a few times. As I went  to sleep and then I awakened the next day I felt drained for obvious reasons but just about all my symptoms were gone (smelled the flowers again and my tastebuds were working again) except the cough and mild bronchial like feel that lasted a few days and then was gone , special thanks to beeorganics4 liquid lung detox and respiratory support supplement that was definitely what got me through the last symptoms. The thing that has stuck around is feeling less energetic which makes sense as I lost weight rapidly during the time I lost my appetite  which made it hard to have more than a meal a day . I feel this was all caused and I became susceptible to this virus after having done a five day fast where I had to do the placebo effect which meant I was not on my immune support protocol and I was exposed the day after I just finished my fast.   

During my time feeling unwell I was taking my immunity protocol ,full of vitamins ,nutritious healthy whole foods and a lot of rest. Basically the best natural protocol that I follow when it comes to immunity. I’ve added below a detailed list of my symptoms in the order that I can remember they started and the protocols I used. In times of so much still unknown and to little time to know it all sharing ones own experience I personally feel can help guide another . BE WELL & BE HEALTHY.
