This may be Magic….
Alright- so there are tons of syrups and pills out there to “cure” a cold, right? The last thing I want to do is put chemicals, dyes, and fake sugar into my body when I feel like I’m getting sick- or ever for that matter.
So about 8 months ago, I discovered a natural remedy for a cold- and it actually works (Michael even swears by it now). Every time I feel I am exposed to someone who is sick OR feel I am getting run down/starting to feel like my immune system is weakening, I take 1 pill of French Maritime Pine Bark Extract (Comes in a pill) AND Prim Rose Oil (1 capsule of each). Take it that day, and for the next 2-3 days. ***I also take this before I travel, especially on airplanes!!
If you already have a cold, take these 2 pills throughout the whole cold and it will reduce the length of your cold. Ease the symptoms by drinking Traditional Medicinals Tea- I swear by throat coat with lemon echinacea and gypsy cold care 🙂 I also like the Zarrabee’s all natural night time cough & sleep drink for bedtime.
Some other random tips while your sick that are no brainers, but often nice to be reminded of when all you want is to be taken care of — consume LOTS of fluids (Water & Tea); Lay off the coffee/any stimulating drinks; Get a minimum of 8 hours of sleep a night; Hot Showers; Cut Sugar out of your diet for the time being; Use Essential Oils at night; The Honest Co has a great Breathe Easy Rub to put on before bedtime.
Oh yea, & Wash your hands with soap and water 🙂
