The lateness of this post is almost embarrassing. Well, for sure you know I am authoring these myself! I would love to tell you I haven't posted because I was so extraordinarily busy… what really happened was I got so extraordinarily SICK! I have 11 grandchildren in this realm. 5 of them, with various stages of colds, were with me on Thanksgiving. Then after they left… I came down with 'IT'. HOLY COW!
But I took my own advice, and it is now history for the most part!
So this is what I did:
Lots of hot broth
Tomato juice with 1 dropper of cayenne tincture (breaks the mucus up!)
Cayenne, honey, lemon and cinnamon shots, great for head stuffiness.
Vit C 3000 mgs/day
Garlic, tablets 4-6/day
Oil of Oregano, 3 drops applied to bottom of each foot for 3 nights.
Onion poultice to break up cough… love that stuff!
Lots of hydrotherapy,(hot baths) with epsom salts and mustard to draw out toxins
And one good book to read, finished it by the way.
And of course I looked for any energy imbalances and corrected what I found. Worked wonders for the headache!
I also did smoothies with an addition of Tangy tangerine for the nutritive boost.
This stuff going around now is very contagious, and has landed some older people in the hospital with dehydration. For some reason this stuff is REALLY DEHYDRATING. You must FORCE yourself to drink. I started to display some symptoms of dehydration (was a first for me, ever!); dark urine, odd skin texture, lightheadedness. Plenty of juices/drinks on a regular schedule will help to avoid this. I didn't really feel thirsty, but was somewhat nauseated so it is easy to not drink.
Now that I feel better, the grandkids are off the naughty list and I must get some things ready for Christmas! ;-)
Tis the season to be careful. I suggest wearing gloves where ever you go to avoid picking up some germ. You might want to make sure your Vit. D levels are up; stock up with the Vit. C and maybe take some as a preventative. And stay well hydrated!
If you have a question about something I have presented, feel free to ask.
Merry Christmas, All!
