Complete with fever (up to 104), hacking dry cough, muscle and body aches, congestion, sore throat, and headaches. I'm pathetic and miserable.
No, I didn't get the flu shot this year. I NEVER get the flu shot and I cannot remember the last time I had the flu. Triffling colds here and there but rarely ever the flu. So, yes, I have the flu but without poisoning myself with the garbage that's in the flu shot (which is only 10% effective this year for a single strain).
Instead, I handle the symptoms NATURALLY. Here's what I've been doing:
Let me be a tad more specific with some of this.
The essential oils I'm using are:
Frankincense, lemon, OnGuard®, oregano, melaleuca, Breathe®, rosemary & juniper berry in the detox bath
The NeoLife supplements I'm using are:
Garlic, Herbal Respiratory Formula, zinc, Super C, Salmon Oil Plus, PhytoDefense (carotenoids, flavonoids, cruciferous compounds), Aloe Vera Plus, Tré
The homeopathics I'm using are:
Aconitum Napellus 30c, Allium Cepa 30c
I have quarantined myself to my bedroom in order to protect Dempsey, our cancer kiddo. If he catches this I will never forgive myself and relatives might never hear the end of it. It's awful not being able to spend time with my family! And knowing that I'm contagious for another five days is brutal.
Thankfully I know this will end and I won't have any lasting issues because my body is strong otherwise. Taking the necessary precautions to make sure I recover quickly and protect my loved ones from this virus is of utmost importance. It sucks to be quarantined but it would suck much worse if my son ends up admitted to CHOC. I think he has escaped the clutches of this virus so far, praise God, because he is asymptomatic at present. I just want to keep it that way.
No, I'm not going to go to the doctor. I know what I have and I know how to deal with it. A doctor would tell me I have the flu and try to prescribe some synthetic compound, most likely and antibiotic, that would have NO EFFECT on the virus that I have. So, I stay home, away from the public, and handle my sickness naturopathically.
