Each Tuesday I’ll share an easy, nutritious recipe so you can join me in the home-cooked self-care.
Cough Care Part 1
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp honey (local + organic = best)
Mix to paste.
Follow with warm water.
Cough Care Part 2
Heat (but not boil water) in saucepan, remove from heat.
Carefully place bottle of organic sesame oil in pan or float a small bowl of oil in water.
When heated to body temperature, remove oil from water and rub warmed oil on chest and throat.
Cover with warm shirt and hop in bed.
Sleep without coughing.
Wake up rested and feeling so much better.
Last time I did this two-part couch remedy my cough was gone in 2 days.
I’ll keep you posted on the progress.
Please let me know if you made the recipe and what you think.
Please share your favorite recipes or cold/flu remedies!
Today’s yoga brought to you by me! I am teaching my BTSA (Beginning Teacher Support & Assessment) classes to new teachers today and I’ve got to get myself ready.
Today’s music is R&B Transmogrification by Quasi. Have I ever mentioned how much I love Quasi? They were the musical obsession prior to the current. LOVE! Better than coffee any day!
Don’t forget FREE Fridays at 4:30 with the new It’s All Yoga teachers (21st and X in Sacramento) – you’ve got to sign up online www.itsallyoga.com.
I’m teaching 3/5/10 – so mark your calendar. That’s THIS Friday! I heard rumors of a RESTORATIVE section – hello heavy use of props! I’m sharing the class with Amanda, so come on by.
Thank you to all of you who came to my February Recess 5:45 classes. Such an honor to practice with you! Namaste.
Thanks – My hubby has the cough bad – so I’m going to try these.
@maria: i hope he feels better soon. colds this year are nasty.
hard alcohol never hurt either. well, okay that statement is debatable. but still.
@tess – but still. i love you.
I don’t think I’ll try the one you have to “Gag Down”. =)
Love ya Tams!
@e – it’s truly nasty. i never did it this time and guess what? i’m STILL coughing. *sigh* i may have to gag it down afterall.
remedy one, for chest congestion: thyme tea. brew dried thyme leaves as you would tea. brew it strong, with lots of herbs. add lemon and honey.
remedy two: fortifying garlic and parsley broth. one bunch of flat leaf parsley, one head of garlic with cloves peeled (try to keep them as intact as possible), simmer in water until garlic is totally soft. strain (or eat the garlic and parsley for kicks), salt, add a squeeze of lemon and/or a dash of cayenne.
@v3 – both sound delicious. i’m off to the kitchen now. please keep me in mind when you come across more remedies.
