|My husband, Robert. He doesn't have a man cold here!|
I love my husband, Robert, however, he is currently suffering from a cold, or as we call it in my house - a man cold! This means there is extra blubbering on top of all the coughing, sneezing, and running of the nose.
And now I am fighting off the same cold. So if you don't mind, I'm going to take the next 2 minutes to blubber and be done with it:
I have a sore throat, a headache, and I'm achy in my neck and shoulders. I'm drinking tea like it's going out of style (see my tea recipe below) and I got up at 4am this morning to take some supplements to help my immune system fight fight fight!
I really can't afford to be sick right now because I am heading into 2 very busy weeks of work, which will take me to New York City for lots of appearances.
Here is a naturopathic cold-fighting tea remedy my daughter Rachel gave me. It certainly does not have a pleasant taste, but it feels like it is working. Fingers crossed!
- 1 cup green tea
- 1 teaspoon fresh, grated ginger
- 1 clove garlic, mashed
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- juice of 1/2 a lemon
- 1 tbsp honey
Okay, I'm done blubbering now. Any tips out there?
