    I’ve had to look into more natural ways for health. My youngest daughter has had reactions to so many things. She’s not fully immunized because she wound up in the hospital twice from severe reactions…stopped breathing when she was 16 months old, and then swelled up like a balloon and had respiratory problems the second time. Well…not exactly like a balloon, but it was pretty bad. So we do a lot of C, D (with Cal/mag), garlic, echinacea and acidophilus (she hates yogurt).

    Sometimes, though, we do have to give in. I had bronchitis once for a couple of months trying to self-treat. I finally gave in and took antibiotics. 🙂

    We’re very much into natural remedies around my house, too. Little Goose has never in her life actually taken antibiotics (Dr. gave us a prescription during the great strep outbreak, but said I didn’t need to fill it if she was doing better by Sunday, and she was). I may have to try your tomato tea sometime, but given that I don’t even like tomato soup… I may stick with making delicious chicken soup — the trick is to boil the bones for a good long time to make a nice, savory bone broth. 🙂

    Also, we add lots of Vitamin D to our C, and use lots of probiotics and drink kefir and eat yogurt all the time. We’re almost never sick… (almost!)

    Ooh! That tea sounds really good. I’ll have to make a note to pick up some of that and a couple of lemons when I next visit a store in January (kidding…not until Monday though!). And yay to more weird people like me. 🙂

    My grandma’s remedy for a cold was Fenugreek tea with lemon and honey. It really does work wonders for loosening up nastiness in your chest, soothing sore throats, and easing a cough. And all without the side effects of stronger drug store or prescription medicine. I guess we’re weird like you 🙂
