Today was a stay at home in bed all day and rest day. I'm not feeling too hot. It started with a migraine (yesterday evening) and an upset stomach and cough today. I seemed to have caught the bug that many are struggling with as we finally let go of the winter baggage.
I didn't pop any pills or down any red, green or blue liquid. Instead I took the alternative route.
I burned eucalyptus and rosemary oil with cloves for the migraine and slept. I think the sleep had more effect on the headache than the oils. I got some relief but the pain was not totally eliminated.
I took some "Cold and Flu" herbal tea for the cough and impending congestion.
I made some ginger and peppermint tea for the upset stomach and lemon water for an extra boost of vitamin C. I grated up the ginger and boiled it for a few minutes. I added peppermint leaves to the steeping stage for another 10 minutes. I strained the mixture and drank it while warm.
I have also been taking a immune booster called: SUPER TONIC from Herbal Bush House(pictured below). It's a blend of garlic, onions, horseradish and other proprietary stuff. It's actually quite tasty!
I slept for hours today!!! Much needed rest will ALWAYS do a body good!
I'm happy to report: the migraine is gone (feeling a little twinge coming on now though) and the upset stomach was quenched with the ginger/peppermint tea (need another dose).
I'm unhappy to report: the cough is getting worse so I need more goodies in my system. This will be a quiet weekend!

Hope and pray you will stay cold free!
