How to Stay Healthy in the Winter Months
How to Stay Healthy in the Winter Months or My Top 3 Products to Keep Germs AWAY!
So, like most people, I hate getting sick.
And, since I work closely with people in their homes and offices, the last thing a client would want is someone getting sicky germs onto them while they’re practicing yoga.
If you know me, you already know that I can be exhaustive in my search for the most effective products, and I also believe in attacking colds and flus on all fronts. I’ve tried so many products over the years (essential oils, juices, garlic, chicken soup, GSE, colloidal silver, Sambucol, etc.)
In this article you will learn about a tea, a supplement and a bath. These 3 things form my personal arsenal to keep winter colds and flus at bay!
** Please note, these work best before the issue has gotten fully into your body, i.e. they are NOT cold/flu remedies. Also, I am not affiliated with any of these products or sellers. This information is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on this Website.
My number one, must-have-at-all-times product is:
THE TEA – Ganmao Qingre Keli (powdered tea)
My acupuncturist introduced me to this many years ago, and you can buy it on Ebay.
Take this at the first sign of a scratchy throat, runny nose or body ache. I recommend 2 packets/day for 2-3 days. Can be sweetened with honey. Straight it’s not too bad, only mildly bitter. I always carry this in my purse and make sure I have a good supply while on an airplane. Far more effective than Airborne, Cold-Eeze, Zicam, zinc lozenges, etc.
THE SUPPLEMENT – Wellness Formula: (capsules, tablets and liquid).
I take 2-3 tablets (most potent of the three) at the first sign of an imbalance. These can cause stomach upset for some people so keep your receipt if you buy locally. They also can cause garlicky burps. If you’re even still interested, they do work quite well. Like all these remedies, better to take a higher dosage in the early stages.
THE BATH – Dr Singha’s Hot Mustard Bath
This also should be done at first sign of an imbalance. Imbalance can be defined as loosely as having weird cravings, sudden inappetence, or as on-the-nose as runny nose, scratchy throat, headache or bodyache.
The key is to use the hottest water you can tolerate, and to stay in the bath until you begin sweating profusely. Fill the bath with enough water to completely submerge your torso.
*** Always take at least 16oz of water along with you to the bath.
Go to bed immediately afterwards.
