sick of being sick
My best friend came over on Saturday and I think she brought germs with her.
She's been a bit sickly lately and my partner and I have come down with it too.
We both have this dodgy stomach bug (I think) and nausea. Yesterday I had a sore throat which developed into this horrible cold/flu thing today.
So we've been trying to eat plain foods (boiled rice mmm) and drink lots of fluids but it's day 3 of feeling crap and I'm over it.
What are some of your no-fail cold/flu/stomach ache/feeling rotten remedies - comfort foods/drinks/soups etc?
(My partner tried to make me this hot drink with lemon, garlic, ginger, chilli and all sorts of uh tasty things :-X - anyone had something like this?)
i accidentally came across this page. from the previous. Sorry to hear you're not well.
this morning I was reading about Coconut oil for flu online.
Because I work with pre-school children who are often sick,
(its winter in Sydney)
when I'm feeling like a bug coming up,
I drink red grape juice run thru the juice extractor.
Branches and all, including seeds.
Its the grape seeds which help.
Also, I will take charcoal tablets which kills bacteria and inhale tea tree oil.
I use coconut cream and milk for everything, moisturizer, hair treatments.
All the best, hope this is helpful.
Miso soup! You could even add a little bit of the paste directly to your delicious rice for a little variety.
In the US, doctors often 'prescribe' the B.R.A.T. diet for stomach ailments.
Ginger or peppermint tea with agave (or honey, if you're so inclined) is also soothing.
I think your partner was on the right track, but just put too many items into the mix!
Sending healing thoughts your way!
