You all have been so kind to ask how we are doing after our recent c*v!d experience! 🥰 Thankfully, David and Reid had about 2 days of flu-like symptoms and then just some lingering fatigue and congestion. We are back to our regular programming at the Carroll Household.
But I couldn’t wait to share this story with you! So David had the worst sore throat of his life; that’s why he first went to the urgent care – we thought he might have strep throat. He was extremely miserable and described it as “swallowing glass.” 😢
I was at a loss of what to do for him, so I reached out to some wellness expert friends – and they started flooding me with ideas. I got to work mixing up and putting all kinds of natural goodies on david. I must have been a bit over-zealous because he said, “What in the world are you doing to me? I’m feeling a bit smothered!” 😂🤷♀️
Oops! However!! We got his major throat discomfort down from a 10 to an 8, then a 6 and a 3 within a matter of a couple hours! 🙌 By the end of the day, it was totally gone! I wanted to shout for joy that once again we had seen natural methods work incredibly well and help him feel so much better.
Here’s what we did:
💎 He gargled with warm salt water every 3 hours
💎 I made a spray that he sprayed on the back of his throat every hour. (4oz spray bottle, 30 drops Copaiba Oil, Thieves Mouthwash, Salt, Water)
💎 I made a roller of oils that he rolled all over his throat and neck every hour (Copaiba, Oregano, Frankincence, Thieves, Lemon, filled with fractionated coconut oil)
Of course, we were hitting all the early treatment and immune-boosting tools we had as well – vitamin c & d, Liquid zinc, I ver mec tin, Ningxia Red antioxidant drink, Inner Defense capsules, liquid echinacea, oils in the diffuser, sunshine, lots of rest and fluids, etc.
I know I’ve been on this natural wellness path for 7+ years and I’ve seen these methods work time and time again. But I get excited like a kid on Christmas every time it happens again! Just had to share, and I hope it helps give you some tools to put in your wellness toolbox as well. Check out my Wellness page for more thoughts on that. ♥️🪴
