While waiting for my perfect health to manifest itself, I went to my Internet source for natural healing remedies. Perhaps one of my favourite websites ever, EARTH CLINIC! The website calls itself a "treasure chest" of home remedies, and I can attest to that! You will find everything here, anything from a Sore Throat, what I am presently grappling with, to allergies to .... Eyelash loss?! Really, if you're suffering from it, so is someone else in the world and that someone has posted their ideas, trials and successes with healing it.
My favourite part about it is the element of sharing. It is a community in the most literal sense. People sharing what they know about what works and what doesn't work for them. Just good old fashioned (and modern) folk remedies and a common interest in health and well being.
Can you tell I like this sort of stuff??!
So, back to my cold :( I am about to whip up a concoction (now that my partner's out for the evening- it is very potent! ). You probably don't want to do much kissing after a few glasses of this baby!
In a soup pot on the stove I boil:
- freshly grated ginger
- fresh garlic
- fresh lemon
- cayenne pepper
- maple syrup
This drink, combined with a lot of Cold FX, Elderberry Capsules, Vitamin C and Echinacea, is my go-to cure for a sore throat and cold. According to Earth Clinic, Kayla from Dallas, Tx likes it too!
