For 8 months I've been bug three, just coping with pregnancy related aches and pains... now i'm SICK! I feel horrid. Stuffed up, sore throat, feverish, coughing, ribs are sore, exhausted but can't sleep!
What can I do to get more comfortable? I'm drinking tea to help the throat issues, but it's only temp relief....
I'm sick too--poor us! My midwife suggested Nature's Sunshine Breathe EZ and Kali-Bichromium (a homeopathic) for conjestion. I haven't tried either because I seem to be getting better on my own, but they may help you.
Taking a warm bath with a couple drops (not more than 3! you'll itch like crazy if you overdo it!) of peppermint essential oil will lower your fever and unstuff your nose.
If you have a lot of sticky phlegm, try drinking club soda mixed with citrus juice. I've been drinking soda and grapefruit juice and it really helps me feel better.
