As moms, getting sick is just not an option! However, with littles just learning not to sneeze directly in your face, this makes it hard to avoid. So, what can we do when the inevitable happens?

MIRACLE MINERAL BATH
Wait to do this until your fever has gone down because you want the water nice and warm to open up your pores. Fill your bath with warm water, 1 cup epson salt, ½ cup sea salt, 1/3 cup baking soda and ginger root or crushed ginger. Allow your body to soak for at least 30-45 minutes in order for your body to absorb all the good stuff. Follow your bath with socks and cozy Pjs!
GARLIC IN YOUR SOCKS
Ok, gross I know but, it can make a huge difference! Garlic is a natural anti-viral and anti-fungal, and has major immune boosting properties. What I do is crush about four cloves of garlic in a bowl to make a paste. Rub the paste on the bottom of your feet and cover with socks. Sleep with the paste on your feet over night and wash them off with warm water in the morning. Feels weird, but works great!
Unfortunately, most major colds and flus have to run their course and can stay around for a few days. Avoid spreading it to your family by wearing a mask and washing your hands every time you touch your face. Lastly, follow these tips to help get you back to your old self quickly!
