After nursing a sick boy for a few days, I was the next one to fall ill. I believe many moms experience this too. You have a child who is down with fever, flu and cough and you too caught the virus when your child is getting better. I put myself on many alternative therapies and took lots of manuka honey and propolis, drank lots of water and stayed in bed as much as I could.
I was thankful that after three days, the fever and cold left though I’m still working on stopping that irritated cough. Due to my illness, I haven’t been at work neither can I do my chores back home. I got lots of rest and sleep and I can feel that my body is deprived from all a real break. Nursing a sick child can be demanding and stressful and it’s easy to catch on an infection when you are emotionally tired. But I’m glad my son has recovered and he’s back in school. He has also recovered in time for our shopping day this weekend where we need to buy some gifts for friends and choose some Personalized Jewelry for his teachers.
As part of my alternative therapies, the propolis has been a fantastic natural antibiotic and I believe it has helped me in my recovery process. Active manuka honey is also a wonderful nature remedy for boosting the immune system and it contains antibacterial qualities too. If you are suffering from a cold, fever or cough, try out these natural remedies and you will be surprised that you will recover faster too. Do not hesitate to consult a doctor if your symptoms persists which indicates you need further medical assistance.
