This cold/flu season has been NUTS. These “colds” have lasted weeks. The “flu” is packing hospitals across the country. I have had a sore throat on and off since new years eve and came across this recipe from David Wolfe which has been a huge relief on my raw vocal chords.
For a sore throat, mix warm water, 2 tablespoons honey, 2 tablespoons vinegar (I use apple cider vinegar), dash of cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. It tastes pretty good and it works within the hour.
My old friend Colloidal Silver has kept the really bad stuff away, but Sunday I was little too carefree and the fever took me. With 3 days to go before a much anticipated trip to Costa Rica I turned to a Oil of Oregano. I have heard about its miracoulous powers, so with watery eyes and a runny nose I threw myself at the mercy of the alchemists at Mothers Market and hoped for the best.
Well, it works! And it works fast. I take a shot glass of water and add 5 drops of oil. Like a big girl I shoot the OOO and for the next few hours it tastes like I just had pizza. Repeat 3-4 times a day drink lots of water, get some rest, and finish packing for Costa Rica.
I hope this helps get you through this sick season, the Banshees have a few parties around the corner and you are going to need your energy to keep up with us.
