Sick as a Dog

Unlike a dog, however, I can’t just go outside and eat grass to fix the problem.

I came down with a nasty cold yesterday, and it got worse overnight. Sneezing, sneezing, sneezing. Low-grade fever, runny nose, etc.

Maybe I caught it from the tornado the day before…

I’ll try to keep to my usual schedule, but if posting ends up being light, you’ll know why.

  1. Check out the store on Alex Jones has a variety of products that boost your immunity. I use silver by NOW and kyolic garlic, you can buy at Walmart or Slave-mart LOL I hope you heal fast.

  2. In the winter, when you’re around other people, shaking hands and all that; wash your
    hands in soap & water, dry them on a clean paper towel, stay out of crowds as much as
    possible. It works. Eat an orange daily; take some vitamin C; drink plenty of liquids.
    Get well soon.

    • I agree. After going out in public the first thing I do when I get home is to wash my hands and change clothes.

  3. Yep. Chicken soup, hot toddy, rest and more rest are the ticket!

    Get well soon, Baron! As someone above remarked, we’ll be waiting for you!

    • lots of chicken soup made with organic chickens. Healing herbs like ginger, garlic, parsley, turmeric, bay leaves, sea salt, and celery seed. And a quarter cup of organic vinegar to the pot to draw the nutrients out of the bones. First I remove the breast meat beforehand to cook separately since it doesn’t take well to long simmering. Then simmer everything till the meat is done. After that, remove and cut up the meat, returning the stripped bones (including the fat and gristle) back to the pot to simmer again – adding more water and a bit more vinegar. After straining, the final product is a flavorful broth thickened with the gelatin. If the bones are still “sticky”, that means there is more protein to be had so I use a quarter of the water, a splash of vinegar, salt, and simmer again for a short while. By then, those bones have given their all.
      And hot toddies made with Meyer lemons (de-seeded) put thru the blender with honey, cinnamon, ginger and a splash of brandy. The nice thing about Meyer lemons is that you can eat the whole thing, thus getting the benefit of rind, pith, and juice.
      We use elderberry syrup also. Twice a day when well, more often when sick. Since this is the Baron’s first cold in 6 years or so, I’d forgotten how sick he gets in one of these bouts. So I laid everything on full blast. Today his fever is gone and he’s feeling somewhat better.
      Another time I’ll describe how to ferment rice to remove the arsenic before cooking. All American rice, even the organic versions, have arsenic. It’s due to the land in which rice is grown…this may apply to other rices, too.

  4. I hope you feel much better soon Baron but I think you must have sneezed right across The Pond as both myself and other half went down with this on Thursday. I could not believe how many tissues two people could get through- now having to fall back on loo roll which is horrid and makes for sore noses.
