I wasn’t going to blog today. I have strep throat with a double ear infection and feel like I’ve been run over by a truck but I wanted to share some home remedies that are really working for me.
- lots and lots of fluids
- vitamin C
- kleenex w/lotion
- put a warm heating pad on your back or chest for 20 minutes twice a day
- drink a FLU BOMB 3 times a day
Okay I’m sure you know all about the first five, but have you ever made a flu bomb? Last night I couldn’t sleep so I started watching video’s on YouTube and I found this great Flu Bomb recipe that has really helped me. I’m not 100% yet but I’m so much better than what I was yesterday.
I kind of changed up the recipe a little. I added a 1/2 tsp of Turmeric and a dash of black pepper. Turmeric helps with inflammation and black pepper helps the turmeric to absorb.
Okay, now let’s talk about ear infections. As soon as I feel a ear infection coming on I pour one cap full hydrogen peroxide in each ear for five minutes. After that I use garlic oil and tea tree oil. Here is a great video by Dr Josh Axe that explains everything.
Please stay hydrated. Don’t forget to use a warm heating pad and from my heart to yours, Merry Christmas. I hope this helps you to stay healthy during this wonderful time of the year.
