COVID-19 | Was I exposed to this?

I wonder if somehow I was exposed to COVID-19 before it hit the news and literally become this viral thing.

Back in October of 2019 I decided to get the flu shot. I NEVER get one of these things ever however the news outlets kept reporting that it was going to be a bad year and for some reason I felt driven to get one. Because it seems EVERY YEAR I get a bad bought of the flu and knocks me out of work during the month of December in which I miss out on company holiday parties and gatherings. So went down to my local CVS and got one after my workout and then thought nothing of it afterwards.

So what can one eat on this diet? Well these are ingredients that have been accepted by professionals who deal with this disease. It’s basically a high fiber + alkaline lifestyle. Do not call this a diet but a lifestyle change because it will keep the body in check where you will be in a much better state. This should basically be your shopping check list:

PART II – Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (Silent Reflux)

So this is Part II of my journey learning about the disease of Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (Silent Reflux).

Have learned quite a bit after seeing an ENT that initially diagnosed me having this.
Silent reflux is a tricky disease that often times can get misdiagnosed because people who have it never know because of vague symptoms that often get confused with other problems. It is often referenced as an “old persons” disease but there is uptick trend in those that are in their 30s starting to get diagnosed with it. Possible and likely reason is due to what the FDA has been putting in our food source such as acids to maintain a products longer shelf life. I am in my late 30s but believe I have had these symptoms much much earlier in life when I look back on all the issues I was having. This disease really did not get classified until the early millennium from what I have gathered.

PART 1 – Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (Silent Reflux)

Late November 2017 I was diagnosed with Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (Silent Reflux).

A month prior I was hit with the flu and conjunctivitis and took nearly a week and a half to recover. Even went as far to go to a walk-in clinic and receive medication to help clear up the conjunctivitis and other antibiotics. When this came on I was having the usual symptoms of the flu but also having other issues that were more prevalent after the fact. For instance, had this harsh nagging cough that just would NOT go away, often times it would ramp up to the point that every morning I was throwing up mucus. Grosssss……. I thought it had progressed into an upper respiratory infection and was taking Robitussin Cold + Cough for quite a long time because it would provide some temporary relief in my breathing, as if it would help clear my lungs a bit.

Workout Routine II

So almost a year and half ago I started to change up my workout routine to include more weight lifting. Why? Well I noticed that I was hitting a plateau with my cardio workout and noticed there was not much change happening because my body was to accustomed to the workouts I was putting it through.

My Weight Loss Journey

So in 4 years I have lost a lot of weight but through a rather long process and a lot of determination. Have often been told how well I look by people I run into from my past or currently work with and some often ask, why? and how? So I figured why not document this little journey I have been on and if it might be helpful for anyone else that comes across it!
