My Offensive Line Up Against The Cold/Flu

I’m getting sick. I hate to say that but it’s true.

Last night, as it came time to take the dogs for a walk, I said to KC “my legs are sore!” It seems like a common comment, because I workout every day and some days the workouts go deep into the legs.

10 minutes later I said without noticing, “Man, my legs are sore.”

"What was your workout?” KC asked.

“I’m trying to remember.” I said. When you work out every day for 5-7 days a week for years on end, they all sort of blur together. Also I am nearing 50 and my memory sorta stinks because of thyroid issues and being in menopause.

Still 10 minutes later, “My legs are aching like crazy.”

“Uh-oh. You’re getting sick, girl.” KC said, noticing the routine of when I get sick, better than I do for myself.

“No way am I getting sick. But…I think I’ll skip walking the dog and go get ready for bed.” And within 10 more minutes I was sneezing like a crazy person. UGH. I am getting sick.

I took probiotics and tylenol (I’m a happy blend of medical and herbal defense) and KC; blessing of a man that he is; found me lamenting in bed and massaged my aching legs until I fell asleep, tucked me in, and I was out. I marry that man time again in my heart, he is so good to me.

Today I woke up achy, sneezing, and my legs feel like someone poured wet cement into them. So I thought I’d share my star line up of defense products. My cold/flu weapons of mass germ destruction, complete with links.

I’m not a doctor, nor do I play one on tv, but I am, in my opinion, the next best thing: a mom of 6. So be sure to make sure you don’t have allergies, or medicines that these herbs may counter, (do your due diligence to know the stuff you gotta know before you take anything over the counter or otherwise) and shop till you drop. Or so you don’t drop. ;)

I’m going back to bed with my hot ginger turmeric tea,

Live your great story!
