I was just asked about remedies for the common cold. Interesting because I was planning to write about the connection between fatigue and mental overload …
According to one of my teachers a cold indicates:
“Too much going on at once. Mental confusion, disorder. Small hurts” and fatigue indicates:
“Resistance, boredom. Lack of love for what one does.”
Louise Hay, Heal Your Body
Me – I am doing lots of things at once — experiencing mental confusion and not loving much of what I am doing! I am preparing to move – spending hours “on hold” making arrangements and filling out forms. Then I’ve been worrying about everything flowing smoothly … I haven’t even started pack yet!
So — my remedy for the “cold” and the “fatigue” is to take-it-easy and either do less or choose to be less bothered. Frustration and overwhelm is as much a choice as being relaxed and enjoying the sunset …
I do have one receipt for colds – a tea that I concocted years ago. Just the thought of it cures me!
The Cold Cure Brew: Bring water to boil is a sauce pan and add a pinch of Cinnamon; a pinch of cayenne pepper; a pinch of nutmeg; a pinch of sage; a pinch of ginger and a pinch of black pepper. Turn the heat down to low and let it brew for 10-15 mins then pour yourself a cup, slip in a couple Cinnamon sticks and sip away.
These are common spices that should be in your cupboard. This brew will raise your body temperature, increase your circulation and move that cold right on out!
