Catching a Cold
Why is it that we seem to “catch” a cold right when we get a chance to slow down and sometimes right when we get to our vacation? How did we catch that cold? Was it going around? Perhaps younger children with runny noses, touching door handles? Let’s talk about why you got the cold and how to get rid of it, with an aim for not having them as frequently in your bright future! Colds are a generic name for a set of symptoms that can include: runny nose, congestion, stuffed nose, sinus issues, a cough, a sore throat, and there are more symptoms, in fact, often we wonder if “it” is a cold or is it “The Flu.” Both Cold & Flu have low energy in common! All colds are “cleansing opportunities” this I learned in herbal school; we learned that the body needed to do a purge! Let go of the accumulated mucous, phlegm, wheat products, sugar, and emotions!
• That fight you had with you man last week
• That extra stress at the job with your coworkers due to a trade show

Negative thinking transmutes into inflammation, pain and often leads to poor eating habits which form more mucous and congestion in the body.

It’s a choice which is fresher, more vibrant, more life-giving force is added to the body, and thus, far fewer colds as you detox much less frequently and enjoy better health. Specific juices, teas, like fresh lime and ginger juice are a welcome addition to increasing your food-based Vitamin C! What are you waiting for?
