I have always liked to swim and I was pretty good at it, being a part of the Kometa team in Brno. But once I got sick, cought a cough that I couldn’t get rid of and I had to stay home for weeks. The inflammation of upper respiration tract kept coming back, so I had to take antibiotics for quite some time, but I wasn’t getting any better. It worked more the other way round. At some point I couldn’t stop trembling and couldn’t even hold a cup of tea. Eventually, I ended up in the hospital with corticoid treatment, as it turned out I was suffering from pulmonary fungal infection that I got from the pool water. My father brought me fresh goat colostrum. I tried it, having nothing to lose. It could hardly make me feel any worse. I drank the milk twice a day and after several months of suffering, in four days only, I started feeling much better, after all! I kept drinking the goat colostrum regularly till complete recovery. And then, finally, I was able to start swimming again!
