Remedies

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) Β AND Prim Rose Oil (1 capsule of each).Β 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 πŸ™‚ Β I also like the Zarrabee’s all natural night time cough & sleep drink for bedtime. Β 

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 RubΒ to put on before bedtime.

Oh yea, & Wash your hands with soap and water πŸ™‚
