It’s hard to believe but it is almost Winter. Mary’s message today is all about the upcoming flu season. She wants to remind us to eat healthy, reduce stress and do natural remedies instead of pharmaceuticals. Eating healthy is very important. Our favourite site is Dr. Mercola (mercola.com). He has great knowledge about basic nutrition and how to treat ailments with natural remedies. Even when it gets cold here we still get outdoors to embrace Mother Nature. We love to walk in the woods or along the beach and this certainly keeps us healthy reducing stress too. Scott and I have never had the flu shot and have seen so many people sicker than when they started in our opinion . Our favourite natural treatment is Oil of Oregano diluted in olive oil. It kills a lot of bugs. We buy it at a health food store. They can give you the info on the dosage. And if you are taking certain pharmaceuticals you need to talk with the health food store staff whether you can safely take it with your prescription. Raw garlic is another favourite we take to kill bugs. We chop up one clove in the morning and one clove in the evening for no more than one day or two. (Too much garlic can be toxic.) Heated garlic does not work it must be raw. We explain we just had Caesar Salad to explain our breath. And have you ever heard of Aerobic Oxygen? It is liquid oxygen you put into your water and then drink. It can kill bugs too. We keep it in our medicine cabinet too. It does not mix with certain pharmaceuticals so talk to the health food store as to whether or not you can take it safely with your prescription.
And this is According to Mary!
