Spotlight on: Med-Essence Blends (Autumn Special)
Heal colds naturally with these blends and simple homegrown remedies
I haven't been to a primary care doctor for an ailment in years. That doesn't mean I haven't been sick. I've gotten a cold at least once/year. But, the last time I went to the Dr. was when my husband and I came down with sinus infections together at least 5 years ago. I had never experienced so much pain in my sinuses ever before. He diagnosed us both with sinus infections and wrote a prescription. He took the meds, I did not. I treated mine with just my essential oils and actually recovered quicker. (Obviously, these results will vary for everyone.)
Simple, yet effective treatment, essential oils were designed to be inhaled. They carry natural anti-bacterial properties so the plants themselves can ward off disease. Some have anti-fungal properties, others are anti-viral. When they are used for sinus infections and upper respiratory ailments, they work quickly because they go right to the site of inflammation and fight the infection.
Check out my prescription for fighting the common cold the natural way. (When prevention is no longer an option)
1. I always supplement my essential oil healing with Hot water with Cinnamon and Honey for a cough or Hot water and Lemon for extra mucous.
2. Take mega doses of Vitamin C (I like Emergen-C)
3. Take B vitamins, Zinc, Selenium and Calcium/Magnesium with Vitamin D
4. Eat almonds, walnuts, berries, green leafies, whole grains, broth and lots of Garlic!
5. Get lots of SLEEP! The body needs sleep to rejuvenate. Resting in front of the TV is not enough. Sleep shuts your brain down from the Sympathetic Nervous System to the Parasympathetic to restore and rejuvenate damaged cells.

Common Cold, Bronchitis and Flu Symptoms:

- Take a bath in Cold & Flu Bath Salts once/day until well (detoxifies the pathogens from the body, relieves muscle soreness and can induce a mild fever to fight the infection)
