At the first sign of illness my instinct is to completely panic. Luckily, those who know me know this well and are good a providing calming influences. After flying on planes, dramatic changes in weather, and a lot of stress I started to succumb to flu-like symptoms earlier this week. I talked to my friend who is extremely knowledgeable in health and she gave me some tips.
1) Don’t Panic! Take a deep breath. Get some cozy clothes and blankets, have Mr. Smurf make you soup with lots of ginger and garlic
2) NO SUGAR & NO CAFFINE & no dairy (the latter one is easy!)
3) Drink Ridiculous Amounts of Water
4) Herbs. My problems were in my lungs so Sandra recomended Elecampagne, a lung compound tincture like Lung Eazy, a formula called “wellness formula” it comes in capsules and liquid it WORKS, and “wild cherry bark, elderberry” cough syrup if the cough gets worse.
5) Get lots of sleep
I love it when people tell me to get lots of sleep. It is just the excuse I need to spend a day in bed watching James Franco on General Hospital and asking Mr. Smurf to bring me things. He really outdid himself with the miso noodle soup on a smurf tray, with a smurf glass! So far I haven’t gotten really sick and I think it is because everyone is taking such good care of me.
These are great tips and the soup looks delicious. Hope you feel better soon. Stay warm.
Get well soon!
Amen to the lots of sleep. Add hot peppers, garlic, and ginger to the list of must-eats!
I love Traditional Medicinals. The Women’s Liberty is so good and really does work for PMS symptoms!
Feel better soon!
Feel better soon! Oh and I love your smurf cup and place mat its too cute 😉
oh no! i’m a cause of your stress! it’s not over yet, keep up with the soup and tea and rest….
