I'm vegan and in the past 3 weeks I have felt downright crappy. Two days ago, I started sneezing and caughing,and my eyes are puffy, and think it might be an allergy. Took benedryll which leaves me kind of spacy. Any suggestions what to use, either over the counter, or some kind of natural thing. I have in the past gargled with a hot tottie, made of hot water, honey and whisky. Gargle and drink it up and it sort of makes you relaxed. If I don't feel better after a 1/2 hour do it again. Supposed to kill the little buggies in your throat. Will definitely make you sleepy. I don't normally drink alcohol. Not too much good for the allergy or whatever I have. Lets go on the theory it is an allergy, any suggestions.
Alicia, I'm gonna look up the cure all tea. I WILL TRY IT!! I'll see if it was an earlier post for someone or in your book. Jennifer, I will also take your suggestions. Sounds like you have been there. I had to go down to LA yesterday (business meeting) and took Zertec , it helped but dried me out. Forced myself to drink fluids, I just wasn't hungry or thirsty. But ate at the Garden Wok, and had lots of tea, and broth & food. Worked today, i just winged it without xertec. Anybody got any suggestions on soup tonight? Something easy. I just don't feel like cooking much, or for the mostpart doing anything.. I'd even resort to buying something at the Health food store and opening up a can. Rest - I gotta do it. Honestly I think I'll take off a 1/2 a day tomorrow in the am. I also manage a paralegal school , and if I'm not here things don't get done. Think I'll do the same on Friday. (Classes in the evening start in Mid Jan) Going to bed early tonight. How long does this last? Its been 3 real miserable days of the drips and killer headaches.
A bit of a warning. Sometimes you have to go for medical intervention. Wed. night my whole right side was swolen on my face. I felt if I had a major headache, and my teeth, and jawline were in major pain. Something was seriously wrong. I went to the dr. Thursday morning, I went on a z-pack. After checking things over, he determined, I had a major sinus infection on my r side. Sounds weird but that is what happened. left side was irritated but not infected. I am taking lots and lots of fluids, and implimenting your suggestions including REST. Got the cure all tea recipe and going to pump myself full of that also. I took off most of Thursday after the Dr. visit, and took it easy today. I didn't feel guilty, I needed the rest. This weekend no work for me, I need the down time. Thanks again to everyone, I appreciate your feedback. Feeling a whole lot better.
