A Note About Staying Well

Greetings to all,

Just a note about staying well—-the Big C or anything else

  1. First– get some fresh air and sunshine every day – a walk is perfect
  2. Second– eat lots of deep nourishing soups- if you are into the bone broths make sure they are truly organic bones and have lots of veggies in them, add a bit of kombu and/or miso paste greens, mushrooms, root veggies are the best for immunity
  3. Third – and most important- keep sharing those great hugs, loving smiles, words of joy and compassion

Next- all the basics like washing your hands- any kind of soap, keep humidity around 40% in your house, get enough sleep.

If you are sick STAY HOME- you don’t do anyone any favors pushing through and going to work


  • Make or buy some fire cider- the best for clearing everything, 
  • Astragalus root, Nettle leaf- you can put these in your soup too
  • Elderberry syrup,
  • Ginger syrup with a bit of cayenne in it


  • Whatever you like- tumeric, black pepper, cumin cardamom, cinnamon to name a few
  • Boneset (Eupatorium Perforatum) is my go to for flu like symptoms


  • Oscillicoccicum is the best first signs of any likely animal transmitted virus- only a few pellets are needed once- first sign exposure in the neighborhood or your home,
  • Belladonna or Aconitum for fevers- belladonna is fever, flushed, loss of appetite and thirst,
  • Aconitum is sudden onset also panic- lots of that going on right now
  • Bryonia- dry cough,
  • Ant. Tart.- rattly cough,
  • Squilla- cough stuck in the lungs
  • Gelsemium- feeling lots of fatigue/lethargy- droopy

Everyone should be on Bach Rescue Remedy every day- the drops can be put in your water bottle so you take some all day- for feeling vulnerable, stressed, anxious

Our biggest risk of contacting a disease we do not want is our fear and anxiety-, which increases your vulnerability for sure

Your are all incredibly healthy and will do well- call for a pep talk or support of any kind

                                                     Sending lots of hugs and loving thoughts
