Recently I had been dealing with a case of the shingles, an illness that people who’ve had the chicken pox can get later, usually triggered by stress of some sort.  That’s what happened to me.  It’s at best an uncomfortable illness and at worst excruciating.  Being somewhere in the not-as-bad-as-it-could-be part of the spectrum, I still suffered and had pain, burning, and itiching of the skin.

The physician’s assistant who diagnosed me prescribed an anti-viral medication.  I did not get any other advice.  So I contacte my network marketing team and also the product specialist at my company and received a supplementation regimen and also a recommendation to take a lysine supplement to keep down the argenine in my diet.  I googled this and verified that lysine starves viruses and argenine, which has some great benefits for the body, also feeds viruses.  I eliminated temporarily the foods that are high in argenine and concentrated on the ones that are high in lysine.

I did not miss a day of work, but did suffer, as I do not like to take pain medication and only took it when the discomfort got bad enough to get some relief.  Actually, lying down helped and heat to the affected area on my body helped.

When I finally saw my own doctor and mentioned about the lysine – she knew why that was.  I do not believe she would have recommended it, though.  Medical doctors say they get in trouble with the AMA when they talk about natural remedies. 

Good thing I had my own knowledgeable team who, in a sense, mentored me through my illness.

It put me in mind that the mentors I have relationships for my network marketing career are valuable and prescious to me.  I don’t have to make the mistakes they made, although, if I’m not listening or believing them, I could fall into some of those traps.  But I don’t have to.  I can make other mistakes while I am moving forward and then share these so that my team doesn’t have to make them. 

The world changes so fast.  There is so much to do and to know.  That’s why mentors are so important.  This is not a business you can do in isolation.

Wishing you the knowledge that an experienced mentor is golden for your network marketing success,
