Wash your hands well, you don't want "the" cold

After two and half days of a runny nose and sore throat, I am cranky and wish I had reminded myself to wash my hands more. That and not bite my nails when I get into a deep thought at work. 

Being pregnant and cautious about not taking medicine, this has been a trip: Emergen-C, vitamin C, lemon echinacea tea, up to 25 mg a day of zinc, breathing over a boiling pot of water, homemade chicken soup, less than stellar night's sleep, naps during the day, and more tissues than I can count - I am so over this cold! I wish it felt the same way. 

Here's to waking up tomorrow over the hump. And if not, do post comments with natural remedies that you found to work.

    1. Hi Danielle, you know I have tried it in the past and felt instant relief. I did not stick with it though. For me I was concerned about the warnings to sterilize the pot and water before you use it, that doing it more often seemed like a lot of prep. Do you have any suggestions on how to overcome that?
