This resonates very much with me; rest, cleanse and strengthen.
"There never needs to be a cure for the common cold, since the common cold is nature’s way of keeping you healthy over the long term. And so long as you get plenty of rest and strive to stay hydrated and properly nourished during a cold or flu, there is no need to get vaccinated or to take medications that suppress congested sinuses, a fever, or coughing. All of these uncomfortable symptoms are actually ways in which your body works to eliminate waste products and/or help your body get through a cold or flu. It’s fine to use over-the-counter pain medication like acetaminophen if your discomfort becomes intolerable or if such meds can help you get a good night’s rest. But it’s best to avoid medications that aim to suppress helpful processes such as fever, coughing, and a runny nose."
Ginger, honey, lemon balm, zinc and lemon are good companions if any virus hit.
Winter sore throat tea.
Make sure you have some of this ready...great recipe for sore throats and chest colds
makes about 2 cups
◾2 lemons thoroughly cleaned and sliced
◾2 piece of ginger about the size of your pointer and middle finger together sliced into coin size pieces
◾Honey (about 1 cup-maybe more)
In a 12-16 oz. jar combine lemon slices and sliced ginger.
Pour honey (organic is best) over it slowly. This may take a little time to let the honey sink down and around the lemon and ginger slices. Make sure when the honey has filled in all the voids, there is enough to cover the top of the lemon slices.
Close jar and put it in the fridge, it will form into a "jelly". To serve: Spoon jelly into mug and pour boiling water over it.
Store in fridge 2-3 months.
Adding a little Brandy couldn't hurt either!
