I had a bad bout of flu in 1st pg and chemist friend recommended a tea of Sage & Thyme and sweetened with a bit of honey - worked like a dream!!! It is very soothing on the throat and loosens any flem in the throat so helps you heal/recover faster. I used dried herbs - filled a 3-4 cup pot with hot water added 1 tsp of each herb, sweetened to taste and drank it both hot and cold as I felt. I also use it for my toddler if he shows any signs of colds or flu we start giving him the tea and he has never been ill for longer than 3-4days.
My lovely cold has taken a dive right into my lungs, which is typical for me. so, now i mostly have a cough...
I am going to acupunturist tomorrow for some treatment and some herbs to get the gunk out. She is well versed in safety in pregnany.
Karen, glad to hear you are better; I really i didn't give it to you on saturday..! I promise I wasn't sick yet then..!
