Natural Skin Care Newsletter: March 2005 Issue
The beginning of March heralds another change in season and with this change there are usually coughs and colds to be expected. Hopefully you will not have to worry about catching a cold or having the flu, but if you do, the information in this newsletter may well come in very handy...
Over many years of clinical practice we have 'developed' (more by trial and error, than any scientific methodology) a tea (if you can call it that), which is easy to make, tastes great and really packs a punch. In this newsletter we will share the ingredients and how to make it with you and should you need to use it, we think you will get a pleasant surprise...
We hope you'll enjoy this issue of our newsletter.
Newsletter - March 2005
1/4 tsp. of a Ginger root (finely chopped)
The juice of 1 or 2 Lemon (depending on how juicy they are)
A pinch of Cayenne pepper
2 Desert spoons of honey (more if you like)
1 Nip of Brandy (this is optional, but effective)
Make approximately 0.5 litres of Peppermint or Lemon grass Tea and add the ingredients. Let sit for 10-15 minutes, strain, then enjoy the brew! It really tastes great.
Drink approximately 250mls 3-5 times daily (you can keep what is left from your 1st batch hot in a thermos bottle for use later in the day, but you should make it fresh daily.
If the you or the person your looking after has a fever, you may use the following suggestion. It works! We've used it with amazing success on literally hundreds of patients of ALL AGES.
Vinegar Socks - yes, that's right, Vinegar Socks.
You will be amazed how quickly (usually within 12 hours) the fever will go down.
Other hints for treating the common cold
Steam inhalations: using Eucalyptus oil, add 3-5 drops, no more, to a bowl of boiled water, place it on the floor near the bed where the patient is lying. This will help break up a congested chest and help to keep the sinuses clear.
If you feel up to it, have a shower occasionally to keep the pores of your skin clear and clean - your skin is eliminating toxins and it helps to keep it clean.
Rubbing Eucalyptus oil directly on the chest and back helps to loosen sticky phlegm. A drop or two on the cushion (in a corner or the underside of the cushion) will also help this process.
If you have an oil burner, use it to evaporate Eucalyptus, Aniseed & Peppermint oils floated on water. Place it in the sick-room.
If you are hungry eat - if not don't. Follow what your body tells you. You've probably heard the saying starve a fever and feed a cold - well, there is some truth to this. If you are hungry, eat food that is easily digested, such as soup, fruits, lightly steamed vegetables and the like are a good source of nutrients without overloading your digestive system.
Get as much sleep as you can - this provides the body with the best chance to fight the bugs.
Remember - it's better to take a few days off and fully recover from a cold than sharing your bugs with your colleagues - they won't thank you and your body will take much longer to recover from the illness.
We sincerely hope you will have a healthy, enjoyable month ahead and wish you all the best.
In good health
