I’m already hit for a second time this season–with a congestion and all that goes with it. I’m still working on building up my immune system. I don’t have one once of inspiration to write. I’ve committed to write something every day. Yesterday I had no access to the Internet. That was a valid excuse not to write anything.
Now I’m living on the home remedies. Have you tried the Apple-Cider Vinegar remedy? I slice a piece of fresh ginger and cook it for 1.5 minutes in the microwave in a regular cup of water. Then I mix it with 1 heaping teaspoon honey and 3 teaspoons vinegar. To soften the taste I add 1 teaspoon lemon. I drink it about 3 times a day!
How about garlic? If it weren’t that I feel self-conscious about the smell I would eat garlic like crazy. By the way, I eat the slices of fresh ginger! It’s strong, but not as bad as Jalapeno peppers.
I did a bad thing as a young girl. On a mission tour in Sweden I stayed at a young family’s home. They had a beautiful small pepper tree for decoration, with quite a few red peppers on it. I couldn’t resist the temptation. I told them that in Peru they ate those peppers. Very true! Mom used to tell me about the kids in Chile when I was a little girl. They had a piece of bread in one hand an a pepper in the other!
Back to the host family. The husband wanted to try the peppers, so he took one from the tree. He grabbed a pepper and took a big bite. I’ve never seen someone beg for mercy as he did. His mouth was on fire! I can’t believe he didn’t kick me out of the house for playing such a trick on him!
Now it’s time for reinforcement: garlic, ginger, blueberries, carrots, broccoli, onions, asparagus, apple-cider vinegar, honey, yogurt… Help! Do you have some good suggestions?
As I build myself up in my most holy faith, I want to build up my body to be strong. My prayer is that my body will glow with health and my bones vibrate with life. And this is what I wish for you:
Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well
with you, even as your soul is getting along well. (3 John 2)
