5 Things to help a cold:


5 Things to Help a Cold

This morning I woke up sick, sick, sick – I HATE being sick!  Of course how many people go WooHoo – I feel horrible!!!  When I do catch a cold I try to treat it as nicely as possible so it will want to cooperate, so far the treatment above has worked every time I have gotten sick the past 2 years. 

So, here is the rundown on everything above.  I was turned on to Umcka by one of the Whole Foods Experts, she said that people who work there swear by this product and I have to say IT WORKS!!  Even my oh so lovely, oh so skeptical BD (Baby Doll) swears by this stuff. Use it as soon as you think you are catching something and it will eliminate or shorten your cold.  They also have one for flu symptoms but I haven't needed that one.  Phew!  The Gypsy Cold Care Tea is yet another cold remedy I swear by, drink this about 4-5 times a day and it not only helps you push fluids but it is also full of other herbally goodness!  I would say 3 & 4 are pretty much givens and Nettle Soup is great for you when you are under the weather.  Nettles are loaded with Vitamin C just be careful when you handle them, they are not pleasant on your skin.  I fell into loads of Nettle bushes when I loved in England and it is NOT FUN!!  Try this recipe over at Chocolate & Zucchini for a guideline.

I am no doctor but I have discovered that this combination works wonders for me.  I also follow up with lots of Oranges and Cranberry Juice, real Cranberry Juice not Cranberry Cocktail to flush out the system.  Off I go to down another glass of Juice and eat my Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup.
