It is the middle of winter here in Edmonton, where I live, and it seems like everywhere I went I was running into people that were sick or getting sick. I was sure that it would not happen to me. Then sure enough on January 31 I too got sick. It started at just a runny nose and then to a cold, low energy, sore throat and a cough. I never go to the doctors unless I am bleeding so I decided I would just use some things I had around the house.
I started by taking shots of apple cider vinegar. It does not taste good at all but it definitely made a big difference. I had a soccer game the first night I got sick and needed something that would help me feel good enough to be able to play. Apple cider vinegar has many benefits to it and is known to give a boost to the immune system to help it fight off bugs. That was just what I needed to play soccer that night.
I also started spraying colloidal silver into my throat as soon as I felt the sickness coming. Silver is a known antiviral and also has anti-bacterial properties. It will help kill any bugs in your mouth and throat.
I usually start my day with a smoothie and this did not change while I was sick. I would always feel better after having my morning smoothie. I experimented with different mixes each day to see what results I would get. You can learn about the different benefits of fruits and vegetables and other extras, like apple cider vinegar, in my Free e-book that is available when you sign up for my newsletter on my home page.
I then also made a pot of ginger water. I added some cinnamon for extra flavor and also added raw honey for its benefits as well. Ginger is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Honey helps to soothe the throat and make it feel better. This brew was the icing on the cake. I am now almost back to normal without having to take any drugs at all. It took more work than what opening a bottle and popping some pills would take but it was totally worth it.
