It sneaks up on you, out of the blue the crud catches you and ACHOO!!! Don’t you love that 3 am wake up call of a sore throat? You roll over and snuggle deeply into your warm cushy bed. Just as you are about to drift back to sleep you swallow, well you try to and you cannot seem to get a good hard push down your esophagus. GASP! Your throat hurts, the dread washes over your body, on no, you have a cold!
To keep it real I figured I should tell you what happens to me when I get sick, since I am always telling people how awesome natural healing and meds work! Unfortunately as awesome as all the stuff I take is, I still get sick! Saturday morning I was welcomed at 3am with a sore, tight throat. I am not one who can get that wake up call and drift dreamily back to sleep. I fight sleep the rest of the night. First I get up and take a huge dose of vitamins and start my homeopathy. Then I get back into bed and do the toss and turn dance. Part of my problem is anxiety, how will I take care of my family if I am feeling yucky? What if I pass it to my kids, what if my Hubs gets it? I feel doomed and hopeless till I fall back asleep. Thankfully I wake up with my throat feeling almost 100%, thanks to the homeopathy! I continue to take the homeopathy and vitamins, down water and rest the entire weekend.
I do not believe in the over the counter medicines. I have given it to Hubs if he gets sick and has a very crazy work day ahead of him but that is a rare occasion. I feel as if taking that stuff makes a cold last 10x longer! I think it stops the bodies ability to work to it’s fullest potential. I need to feel good, when sick, so that’s why I love the homeopathy. Now Ill tell you, first hand, how well the homeopathy works. So far since Saturday morningI have been taking the homeopathy regularly. For the most part I have had a little tiredness, sinus pain and pressure. I will take an ibuprofen if the pressure is to much to handle but so far I have only taken one on Saturday morning. I took the one Ibuprofen because I did not have the sinus homeopathy pills which I got later that day. I will say that I am still slightly miserable but I feel as though I have been taking over the counter medicine with out the “drugged” up feeling. I am also confident that my cold will be much shorter then the average cold. Today, Monday, I feel my cold is almost over, I may have one or two more days that I am not 100%. That is 4-5 days that I will feel slightly miserable! The common cold typically lasts 7-10 days! This is why I am a huge believer in homeopathy, vitamins and another secret weapon, elderberry! You can learn about elderberry on a blog I am following click the blue link to read it, A Drizzle Of Oil A Pinch Of Salt.
I hope this motivates you to look into using more natural remedies. I truly believe that we have the power to heal ourselves without drugging ourselves silly! You can read more about Homeopathy HERE. Educate yourself, your body will thank you!
Stay Well and Strive For Progress!
