Goodness, what timing is so right.

Hoping it will pass fast. Get some Vit. C in you and whatever else usually
works.

Unhappy

my regular doctors office is closed due to mardi gras here...even the post doesn't deliver and banks are closed. no trash pick up which I forgot about so our bins are at the road a day early.
I am thinking about trying a walk in clinic. want to nip this in the bud it has not reached my lungs yet so maybe we can prevent that with an early intervention.

Heart hey sweetie

Dear Bizi,

sorry you are feeling bad. remember though if it is viral they won't give you antibiotics anyway, but i can understand your wanting to be seen just in case.

you might try the spiced tea / spiced lemonade recipe i posted for mari some time ago. the spices used are antimicrobial, antibacterial & antiviral. you should have about 3 cups in one day.

as the base, you can use plain water (with lemon and honey added at the end), regular tea, or an herbal infusion. i sometimes use a red fruit infusion (eg red zinger) as the base, as those are rich in vitamin C - in which case i skip the lemon.

if you don't have all of the spices listed, tell me what spices you do have and i can suggest an alternative.

love and healing vibes to you

(((HUGS)))

Heart reposted tea recipe... shorter and more info

Dear Bizi,

I reposted that tea recipe to a new thread... removed some fluff and adding serving information, properties, and recommendations in case of illness.

Sounds like a great idea to go to the walk in clinic. Nip it now so you can party hearty for the grand week of festivities.

Feel better soon.

I feel better already with the cortizone shot and some really good lebanese food for lunch. My twin sister is having heart issues, please send good thoughts her way.
