 Take precautions during the cold and flu season. Viral infections are dangerous.  A healthy defense system may prevent a full fledged attack.  The trigger points that stimulate our immune system to over-react to a pathogenic invasion can cause excessive amounts of fluid to settle in our lungs, nasal and ear cavities.  This condition is the perfect environment to breed infections. 

 Alternative approaches to counteract this inflammatory response is hot and spicy lemon and raw honey drinks are comforting antidotes. Also, Essential Oils work wonders as part of your daily routine to avoid getting sick. Of course, if you are sick, these pointers will help speed up recovery.

Use as often as necessary to clear the sinus passages.  Make ½ a gallon of peppermint tea and add lemon and raw honey to taste, heat or drink cold. Peppermint has a cooling and drying action with an antispasmodic effect on the respiratory system.   For achy muscles, place 30 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil in an ounce of carrier oil.  Massage the oil into your sore muscles and chest.
