Gargle, Eat, Soak, Rinse, Repeat
Immediately Swish mouth, teeth and gargle deeply for 60 seconds and frequently with mouthwash, salt water or coconut oil at the first sign of feeling bad. Do not wait.
Swish spoonful of coconut oil in mouth they teeth for 10 minutes then spit to kill bacteria, fungus, viruses and whiten teeth and refresh and protect gums.
Immediately take Echinacea and Vitamin C as follows:
2 tabs 3x per day until better and 2 days after. Take short term only when needed. It is OK to take one or two doses preventatively when you are around people who are sick or when you feel you are run down in times of stress, lack of sleep, bad nutrition or excess sugar. Echinacea boosts your immune system.
Vitamin C any form. I keep EmergenC with me because it is easy to carry, share with others and has added electrolytes. EmergenC cuts mucous and hydrates when added to water. It cuts phlegm, boosts energy, boosts immune system, reduces cough and gives your body something with which to fight virus instantly. It has very little sugar, 1000 mg vitamin C and comes in lots of flavors. My favorites are Cranberry/Pomegranate, Raspberry and Tangerine.
Great healing foods are coconut oil, bone broth, steamed spinach (drink the spinach steam water), chicken soup, dark green leafy vegetables like kale, Swiss chard, spinach, grapefruit (eat the white pith), goji berry, camuberry and kiwi!!!
Kiwi, camuberry and grapefruit are the highest sources of high phytonutrient vitamin C in the world!
Pour mouthwash in small narrow cup/glass and soak toothbrushes in it continuously. Change liquid every 3 days to a week and wash cup.
Clean drinking glasses every day. Change pillow cases daily. Change bedding once contagious sneezy stage over.
Open areas to fresh air and sunshine. Expose body, face, eyes to fresh air and sunshine daily.
Wash hands frequently and every time you sneeze, nose is blown. Clean contaminated surfaces such as toilet handles, light switches, phones, keyboards or door handles that are touched.
Use Nasal wash bottle with distilled water in the shower or over sink when you brush your teeth, shower or are congested. This greatly reduces the viral load in your body and helps you feel better instantly.
Insert bottle in one nostril and squeeze bottle gently filling sinus cavity. Tilt head so that solution runs out opposite nostril freely. Stop. Pinch nostrils and tip head back to retain solution for 30 seconds. Blow nose thoroughly. Repeat with other nostril.
Run warm water on your face and forehead or use hot pack to reduce sinus pressure. Learn to trigger point and flush your sinuses and face at Body by Design.

If symptoms increase or get worse, mucous becomes dark green, brown or bloody or you have difficulty breathing or have lung congestion or any other concerns, call your doctor immediately or seek medical treatment. The following is not medical advice or diagnosis and should not be construed as such.
Sleep. Trust. You are right where you belong for a reason. Ask what that reason is and enjoy the journey. Make changes in busyness, stress levels and choices if necessary.
