What do you do when a family member (or you!) start to feel a little cough? Or throat tickle? Or just off? Do you think there’s not much you can do? Do you go straight to the doctor hoping for medication? Or does the doctor usually just say to wait it out, get rest and hydrate? Did you know there’s a natural way you can combat those germs early on? This is the lineup we use immediately:
*A spoonful of local Honey and a drop of Lemon to soothe the throat
*Diffuse Immunity in every room (we carry diffusers to help with this too!)
*Detox Baths for everyone to regulate magnesium levels (see our next post to learn more about that!)
*Topically, we apply Immunity and Frankincense to everyone and Cough & Cold on the person not feeling well
In addition to these natural aides, we also make sure to get plenty of rest; rest heals the body more than you know! We also hydrate with nourishing liquids - water, bone broths, electrolytes. We make sure to eat whole foods and to stay away from any processed foods so we aren't flooding our systems with more chemicals and preservatives. Elderberry syrup is a must for everyone in the family and the dose for the sick person is doubled. Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Zinc are increased for the sick person as well. And, of course, we wash hands more often, stay home and disinfect highly touched areas (think doorknobs, light switches, bathrooms).
These tools often nip that sickness quickly. And if we haven't caught it quite early enough, they lessen both the severity and length of the illness. Other family members or people in close contact don't usually get sick either, which is huge! No doctors are usually needed so that saves time and money too!
