Organic & Whole Living: Light at the end of the flu tunnel...

Thanks to my efforts for getting more organized and planning my weeks better, you had no idea my whole family was down with a rough case of the flu last week. I had features all ready to go, which is was totally out of character for me.  It was a blessing in disguise.

There is light at the end of the tunnel and as soon as we all kick these horrible coughs we'll be back to normal. I can hardly wait! This flu lent itself to plenty of home remedies to try. We tried everything from tumeric and honey to boiled onion to open up sinuses.

The best part, my husband made a delicious batch of Jordin Rubin's Chicken Soup. We did cook it for the full 24 hours and it was delicious. Our throats were raw, but the warmth of the soup soothed and I started feeling a little better. Next time, we will omit as much of the fat as possible as this seemed to make it somewhat greasy, but other than that a great soup for the flu.

After a week of major coughing, aching and sore throats I was craving anything cold on my throat. That's when I remembered popsicles (I had forgot about them, after all it is winter), but better than that frozen berries! These were wonderful. My youngest love and nursed frozen juicy red raspberries, blackberries and blueberries. They were great for getting some antioxidants back into your systems as well. The flu is tough, and I'm thankful it has passed and I think we've had our lifetime share.

What about you? What do you do to soothe the flu naturally?

Oh, you smartie! When we had the flu recently, my blog all but dried up. It still is a bit dry, since we took an unexpected trip as soon as we were well. I hope you all feel better very, very soon!

Hi Lori,

Thank you so much! I can understand getting out of dodge and out of the house, that's for sure!
