This week was almost a total loss. I started feeling crummy on Wednesday, achy and tired. Felt fluish. I laid around pretty much all day, and when I got up to do something I was grumpy. Mommy was no fun at all! The kids looked like this most every time I got up:
So I started taking raw garlic right away. Garlic is a natural antibiotic. I crushed a clove into a tablespoon and poured a bit of orange juice over it to make it go down easier. After I got the hot stuff in my mouth, I washed it down quickly with a cup of O.J. (Not quite like a spoonful of sugar, Mary Poppins, but it sure helps!) I take 1 clove 3 times/day.
The next day, (I should have done this Wednesday, but all I wanted to do was lay down) I brewed up some Echinacea tea and downed 2 quarts of it over the course of the day. It tastes pretty good alone, I didn't even add any honey.Because I was feeling so worn out, I upped my vitamins. I take a liquid multivitamin because liquids are more easily and quickly absorbed into the body. (And because my Naturopath Doctor says so.)On Friday morning, I was still a little achey. By this time, I was about done with feeling like I'd been run over by a train, so I started getting serious. I added B Complex to my arsenal. I needed energy!
That afternoon, I felt fine! The aches were gone and I wasn't so tired anymore.
All those things together added up to a healed and happy Mommy.
