A Little Ease

I'm amazed and so thankful. On Friday we got a call from Greg's doctor....his culture confirmed influenza A{and she wanted him to start the Tamiflu script-not sure why, it only is effective in the first 48 hrs-he didn't take it}. She shared that this flu was fairly aggressive and we might be in for long days. {When I read this, I became a little freaked out as well} By then, the boys had already started high fevers and were literally couch bound. I barely heard a peep from them all day.....just quiet requests for water and cold washcloths. As I wrote in a previous post....I was preparing for days of feeling sick.....and coming down with it myself.
The day before the boys started fevers... I ran out to Whole Foods.....and searched for my favorite natural dept. employee. He looks just like Kid Rock.....and is so helpful and kind. In the past, he has guided me with mineral makeup purchases.....today he was helping me batten down the hatches and prepare for the flu. I left armed with Vitamin C and a Whole Foods product called Flu Ease (homeopathic med.) The boys and I were to take it with the first sign of illness.....and we did.

All I can say is.....after taking a couple doses of Flu Ease and a heavy dose of probiotics.....all I came down with was some exhaustion and dizziness. The boys fever broke after 1 day.....by Saturday they were bouncing around the house again. I can't help but attribute this quick recovery to prayer and some natural meds. The boys were also excited to try my friend Ruth's advice to soak their feet in hot salt water....they did....and they loved it. Thanks Ruth!

What does the salt soak do?

I believe it helped to lower their fever. Draws impurities out?

Natural remedies were here a lot longer then all the others drugs. At least that is why I think they are always worth a shot. Glad very little hit you, and the boys are up and back bouncing around!

Glad y'all mainly dodged the flu bullet. I haven't heard of the salt soak or the Flu Ease but def. worth tucking the information in the back of my mind.

I love the boys so much. I can't really stand it.
