Common Cold

by Kristy H.

February 2011

I was up last night with a sinus cold and fever - body aches, headache, chills, etc. I had read just a few days before (in your herb catalog) that catnip induces sweat and brings a fever down. I made a simple tea with equal parts catnip and echinacea and sipped on it until I had drank two cups. Within 20 minutes, I noticed I was perspiring - the fever was gone, along with the aches and chills. I felt SO much better, and now have a new favorite herb!

I am a Registered Nurse, and have always believed that there was a better way to treat my children. My husband and I have always been very leery of antibiotics because I have seen and knew the overuse of them. You have given me a wonderful way to treat my family and to show them I love them. I am just now getting started and the first thing I did was to treat my 5yr old's sore throat with garlic "tea". She only drank a little (because she said it tasted bad) before bed. When she woke up the next morning, her sore throat was GONE!!!!! Again, thank you so much!! God Bless You.

Did You Know?

Split ends and frail hair can be drastically reduced by simply consuming Horsetail cut and/or powder. Also, weak and thin fingernails can be stronger and thicker after just a few weeks. The nutritional structure of Horsetail is well known as one of the best cures for such annoyances. Just add a bit of the cut herb to any tea combination. In a tincture, it would even be more effective. The powder can also be encapsulated, if you prefer. Continue usage even after you see improvements to make them more permanent.

Kelp would be our second choice as a nutritional powerhouse that can make a noticeable difference. Consuming both would be the best way to tackle it.
