Natural Cold Cure



I hate being sick.  


A friend recently told me about garlic shots, that are a natural alternative when you are sick or don't want to get sick.  


So about 2 weeks ago a cold hit me really hard on day 1.  So I tried them, and couldn't believe it!  Normally my nose runs non-stop for 2 weeks, then I cough all night for 2 weeks, then I'm congested for 2 more weeks.  


I did 3 garlic shots and drank an APV mixture 3 times throughout that first day, and I was better in 24 hours!


Garlic Shots:


 Squeeze 1/2  fresh lemon into a cup


1 clove garlic; minced


1-2 Tbs distilled water (optional)










Mix together and drink it like
a shot.  


It sounds nasty but strangely tastes like pasta.


Don't drink this on an empty stomach.

Apple Cider Vinegar mixture:


1-2 Tbs ACV
1/2 squeezed lemon
A pinch(+/-) tsp cayenne pepper
honey or 1 pkt Truvia
as much water to taste
Sip 


This kinda tastes like juice with a kick.  I think I could get my kids to drink this one.  Drink throughout entire day if possible.






This has worked better than any medicine could.  I continued doing garlic shots (2-3 a day for the first couple days, then only 1 a day after that).  The 1st couple days I could tell I smelled like garlic, but I wasn't going anywhere and I felt great so I didn't mind.


Try it!  Tell everyone!


I really want a lemon tree!

Outside

It was warm today and we played outside.




It looks like at least one of our kids will sport some shades.




Colum went down the slide the other day and loved it.




We have flowers.
