Cold Busting Tea

cold busting teaAll around me, people are getting sick.  I’m managing (so far) to avoid it myself, even though my husband has a cold.  We’ve got lots of water, probiotics, vitamin C, raw garlic and rest happening around here.

Last year, I got hit with a nasty cold.  As soon as I noticed it creeping up on me, I made this tea and my cold was gone in a day or two, and I was feeling back to my normal self.

If you’re on the verge of getting sick or even in the midst of it already, I hope you feel better soon.  Here’s a tea recipe that can help get you there:

1‐2

 1

dash
 of 
cayenne,
 juice 
of 
½
 lemon, 
and
 1 tsp
 honey
 (or to taste)

Steep 
for 
10‐15
 minutes


Drink 
at

sign
 of 
a 
cold
 and

Peace, Love, and Wellness,

    Here’s one no will like: actual bedrest! I tried this one time, and healed quickly and felt better faster. Take some hours off and regenerate. I should actually take this advice from myself more often, lol.

      Gina, this is a good one! It can feel so difficult to just *stop* and turn off and rest for a while, even when we feel awful but it’s so important!
