The Cold Cure
FLU-Y? ME, TOO!!! Actually US, too. We're all feeling under it! It might be a cold or sinus (change in weather?) but it feels yucky, so we're going with my cold cure!
Yeah, conventional med says there isn't a cold cure... that you need to manage symptoms and wait it out, 7-10 days. But we haven't had a cold last more than 3 days in YEARS. I dunno. Maybe we're just lucky?
If you wanna get lucky, too -- heh -- try my simple cold cure go-to!
Cold Calm -- homeopathic for colds
Oscillococcinum -- if you suspect flu
Calcium Lactate -- excellent for the immune system (and bones -- I take at least 2 every day) These are purchased from a Standard Process distributor. My distributor is Veronica and you can email her here.
30k Vit D3 -- every four hours for a day or two
1400 mg Lipo C -- every couple of hours
150 mg Zinc -- 30-50 mg every 3-4 hours
Detox Tea -- mixed with a little green if that’s your jam
with Local honey if you can get it; if you can't, we love this honey!
Energy Fizz for fun + B vitamins
And chicken noodle soup!!! <<< That’s the cure, y'all :-)
Delicious cold cure: Chicken Noodle Soup
Ingredients -- use as much organic as possible so there are no pesticides to interfere with the healing!
organic noodles from Costco (so cheap and no glyphosate)
pastured chicken (but use grocery store if that’s what you can get)
fresh minced ginger
ditto garlic (we’ll put 4 heads in a pot of soup)
pre-packaged salad (Costco, $5 for a huge bag)
any spices you like
Salad? Yep!!! We get the big bags of organic Mediterranean salad from Costco and add a couple of cups to a pot of soup. It’s really tasty and pretty!
Mushrooms not required, of course, but if you love shrooms, always good in soup!
If you are NOT a liver fan but would love to add more of this superfood to your diet, cook, then mush in the Cuisinart or blender and add to a big pot of soup. You won’t know it’s in there and you get all the good!
Not doing anything else today! I even put a space heater on this morning to get rid of the chill in my bones. Feeling good, got my fizz and Netflix clicker. I'm set!
What do you use for a cold cure?
Tell me -- I'm always looking for new healing ideas!!!
