A blog all about raising awareness for Women with Bleeding disorders.
I am a severe factor 5 Hemophiliac living in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and this is a blog about my life!
Pulled muscle? Drink water lots of water, then salt bath, then rub some zheng gu shui on it. Glutamine is good to add to juice or water (5g twice a day with a beverage) to help speed up the healing. By day 2 or 3 you should be able to start stretching it out. On Friday I strained my left pectoral muscle in kick boxing class. By following these simple instructions I'll be ready to hit the gym for my shoulder and traps routine this evening. Get better soon. Crutches suck!PS- Zheng Gu Shui is the Chinese muscle rub I was giving out at the Hemo youth leadership workshop. Can be found at Chinese herbal medicine stores for about $5. Glutamine can be purchased at Popeye's, GNC, or Naturally Fit and not only speed heals your muscles but also boosts your immune system and promotes good complexion.
