Some years it just seems like the bugs are bigger and meaner and more plentiful than others. A few years ago, when our oldest was a senior the swine flu infiltrated our home. Sickness abounded! It was awful!
The doctor’s office just said yea they have the flu. Drink lots of fluids and rest, took our co pay and sent us on our way. :0( We were needing serious help to get well. Lots to do as a senior and soooo sick.
The next morning my dear friend Charlene appeared in our door way with armloads of soup and bread and all these homeopathic remedies that turned out to be amazing. Since it is flu season and I keep hearing from friends who are under the weather I am forwarding the list of things that work for us. We hardly ever get sick these days, PRAISE THE LORD, but when we do it is usually a doosie!
I am including the email I sent out to our friends after we had recovered from the illness. It explains what happened and how her suggestions helped us!
So do drink lots of Kangen water, take your Juice Plus and try some of these if you do get sick.
So Matthew and Micah had a brush with the back to school bugs already but Martin got nailed! Sore throat, headache, aches, fatigue, 103.2 for days on end, etc.
He has now missed a week of school and has 3 AP classes and one month left to finish his Eagle Scout Requirements. Please pray!
After the doctor said there was nothing they could do to help, my dear friend Charlene gave me all this great homeopathic stuff. In a day Martin is feeling much better. She researches everything to the nth degree. Everything she has ever recommended has worked. I just thought I would share since I have heard of so many who are sick too!
The deal is that if you can do these things the instant you start to feel like you are coming down with something it works MUCH better. These seem to be helping to shorten his stay in sick land, if we could have given it to him at the onset he might not have had to go there at all.
I started coming down with a sore throat and headache yesterday and I jumped right on it. I am going to keep taking it all for a few more days but I think I dodged the bullet!
Hope it works for you too!
Martin was skeptical, didn’t want any “witch doctor” remedies so Char provided us with the scripture to back it up, free of charge! He really likes feeling better!

HERE IS THE LIST:
I have been told that any of them that you can get Certified Organically Grown are better.
***Oil of Thieves-Thieves Young Living Oil, mix a few drops with olive or Safflower oil (about a teaspoon)and apply to chest/back and throat, put a few drops in the humidifier. Smells great and kills germs in the air while keeping your humidifier from growing bad germs. Check out the story of where it came from origionally on the recipe page. eew!
Two other sites I found…www.RockyMountainOils.com; http://www.Amazon.com/Health
Recipe for Theives Oil:
Eucalyptus Oil-add a few drops to the humidifier.
or the health food store.
Elderberry Tea–Take dried elderberries 1/4 cup simmer in water 10-15 min. strain and drink.
This is an anti-viral herb (VERY useful) You can also simmer in water/strain then mix juice with 1/2 cup of honey. Put in the fridge and take as a syrup, stays good for 2 weeks and you can take it if you feel anything attacking you.
Get loose leaf, any health food store would carry. Tastes a bit like raisins, sweeten with a dab of honey if you want.
Astragalus Root-add to chicken broth. I cooked the whole chicken or pieces with the bone in, in by pressure cooker with 1-2 roots, added a clove of garlic(cut up), one onion cut up, 3 stocks chopped celery until the meat was falling off the bone. I used the broth in chicken soup but made extra and froze in an ice tray so i could pop out a little bit for whoever is feeling sick, and heat it up. I also plan to add a cube or two to other things I cook during the flu season. Also, the cooked chicken I used in shepherd’s pie (my kid’s favorite) and other recipes that call for cooked chicken.
Juice Plus-17 Raw fruits and veggies with the water, sugar and salt taken out. What is left is in capsule form and has had a profound effect on our families health.
Kangen Water by Enagic– Ionized, microclustered, alkaline, filtered water. Changed our lives!!!!
Verses to back it up:
Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Every month they will bear, because the water from the sanctuary flows to them. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing.” Ezekiel 47:12
He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, took him to an inn and took care of him. Luke 10:34
Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. James 5:14
***This one really seemed to help alot! :0)
