FYI- NAC or n-acetyl cysteine, is an amino acid and is good to help overcome colds/ flu; check it out on WebMD. Get it in the supplement aisle. Mullein tea, or infusions, are great for lung health and restoration. When I had pneumonia- the real stuff- I mean a sac of pus sitting in the lower lobe, eating pineapple really helped me recover. The bromelin is good for respiratory health, too.
Lung issues are a good time to process grief, metaphysically, if you are into that.
Of course I think I've probably posted this before.
I get elderberry capsules 500mg and double or triple dose for short periods when I am fighting something. Pho soup with its bone broth is some good homeopathic medicine, delivering all that goodness one could want.
It is nice to avoid antibiotics, if possible. I have found patients with chronic sinusitis actually are suffering from a yeast (Candida albicans) sinusitis. They've been treated with multiple antibiotics and still struggling with no relief. A round of 3 flucanozole tablets coupled with good plain greek yogurt that can be sweetened with stevia and non alcohol based vanilla flavoring and incorporating fermented foods, like sauerkraut. I believe people suffer more from Candida than the medical community recognizes. They see it only of being of consequence in immunocompromised patients and that just isn't the case. Yeast fills the void caused by antibiotic kill off of good bacteria and can be an insidious infection- poor gut digestion, leaky gut,, depression, brain fogginess, congested liver from poor splenic pancreatic chi since yeast ferments and makes alcohol internally.
It is good to share some health. Hope all stay well this holiday season and others feel better.
The band sure knows how to pinch hit. Can't wait for the bus to come by
