No Medicine Required

A week ago, I have been sick for a few days, flu to be exact, and now confidently I could say I feel better already. After years, I have taken no medicine at all for such disease. Two keys, good food and good sleep. And one more, no cold drink would help your body heal much faster. It would not happened same way to your body, but thankfully God always approve this way for me to get my healthy again.

Good Sleep

At the very first day of Ramadan, I got sick. You know, first day and getting sick, a total mess for me. And the very first hard thing for me I notice is amount time of sleep.

Usually I get asleep at 10 PM and wake up at 4 AM. But in Ramadan I have to make it earlier since I have to prepare the sahoor. So after getting qiyamul lail (taraweh and witir) around 8 PM, I prepare myself to get asleep at 9 PM and get up at 3 AM. And since I was sick, I should add more sleep. No choice, I sleep after sahoor at 4 AM until 7 AM, sure in between I wake up to get prayer, usually around 5—5.30 AM.

I feel pretty good on following the pattern


Good Food

Rule no 1: No ice or cold drink when you are getting flu. It would make it worse and longer to recover. Trust me, it is not good (also supported by science).

Rule no 2: No fries, except you make it by yourself and using a very good oil.

Rule no 3: Supply additional vitamin, usually I drink YOU•C1000. Well, not a paid advertisement but so far so good for me. And I am also not too familiar of pill form vitamin.

How about your first day of Ramadan?
