Todays beauty post is a little different because it has to do with my healing remedy. So I have been really under the weather the past few days. I started feeling a little funny Saturday but my symptoms really kicked in on Sunday. Those of you who know me know that I refuse to take regular medicine unless its an emergency or really really bad. It all started Sunday and today I am already feeling a lot better. I’m definitely in the last stages and am even about to go jogging after I post this lol… I am not a doctor however I know that when your body is ill you want to work with it and not against it. Sometimes over the counter things can suppress the bodys natural mechanisms for healing. If you are going to try any of these make sure you aren’t allergic to anything first. Now the lesson I have learned which I always learn but never stick to is that I have to give my body TLC with the right nutrients everyday and not just when I’m sick. I am going to try harder to do that this time. Also I don’t eat dairy products on any day but especially if you are sick you should stay away from them because they will just add to your congestion.
I started taking Vitamin B and Vitamin C immediately
Then I decided to make my green smoothie which is something I try to do a few times a week anyways even when I’m not sick. I take a handful of spinach leaves, cut up one apple and pour in organic apple juice with no sugar added into my blender. When I have them I also add blueberries and shredded carrots.
Green Tea is great for helping to strengthen your immune system so I kept doing green tea with honey and two cinnamon sticks
I know this looks like it could be nasty lol but I couldn’t taste it anyways because I was congested. I put on a pot of water and waited until it was boiling. I added a few cut up garlic cloves and let them sit for a few minutes. Then I poured the garlic water into my cup and added a little lemon juice and honey. This was my first time trying this and I noticed a difference in the way I felt a few hours later
My wonderful mother gave this to me the last time I went to DC and I love it. I basically ate this and the smoothie the whole time I was sick.
