Amidst all the excitement and fun, being pregnant comes with a little set of challenges!
It's amazing how a little person inside of you (Ours is the size of a lemon this week- http://www.babycenter.com/6_your-pregnancy-14-weeks_1103.bc?intcmp=timeline) determines everything! You don't want to eat, drink, or consume anything that might compromise growing brains. Ya know?
Well, I got a cold/borderline sinus infection and I was determined to find a natural remedy to relieve it. So I called Cathy Wagner, my go-to remedy galpal! She recommended Grapefruit Seed Extract- it's acidity can cut through almost anything once diluted. She also says it's good for a rotten tummy in a strange county??? Good to know... pack the GFSE!
Then Mom sent me an awesome little contraption- a Neti Pot! Thanks MOM!
YA'LL NEED A NETI POT!
(It's really gross but it works)
So... what's my mix??
Neti Pot + Kleenex
1 cup warm water
1/4 tsp salt
3 to 5 drops of Grapefruit Seed Extract
(read instructions, this stuff is potent & can literally burn your face off!)
Rinse Sinuses 3xs per day while congested
Walaaaa! I'm healed!
(I also doubled my dose of Fish Oil (for inflammation), drank lots of H2O, took a tylenol for fever, & laid around for 3 days!)
I love you Neti Freddi!
