Herbal Remedies to Prevent Sickness

On Thursday, before heading north, I was careful to pack all of my herbal medicines for fighting illness, but I was in such a rush to get to my mother’s side that I did not unpack them and administer them to myself first. I did take an Airborne Formula brand effervescent tablet on the plane ride over, but at about 10:00 p.m., while sitting next to my mother, I felt the beginning signs of sickness in my throat. 

Having been exposed to my mother’s pneumonia, prior to her receiving antibiotics, I was quite frightened about the possibility of catching it myself. So I stayed in bed most of the next day, with the exception of making a trip to a nearby health food store and buying more herbal remedies, and making two trips to visit my mother at the hospital. All day long, I blasted my system with the following:

  1. Raw garlic pieces, pre-peeled and eaten straight
  2. Raw ginger, eaten straight
  3. Temple Leaf Tea brand “Cold & Flu Time” herbal tea and Yogi Tea brand “Green Tea Kombucha” herbal tea, both brewed with fresh ginger pieces and Honey Gardens brand “Apitherapy” raw honey
  4. Nature’s Way brand “Umcka ColdCare” syrup for cough, congestion, sore throat, and sinus infections
  5. Herb Pharm brand “Propolis Echinacea” throat spray
  6. Wish Garden Herbs brand “Kick Ass Immune Activator”
  7. Gaia Herbs brand “Quick Defense”
  8. Source Naturals brand “Wellness Formula” multi-vitamins

By the afternoon, I felt about 70% better, and by this morning, I feel about normal, with just a little residue. I have avoided getting full-on sick for a couple of years now, when I have administered some variation of this formula, so I wanted to pass it on.
