I have a cold. I wish we could see germs like they show on commercials so that we could side-step them and save ourselves days of leaking, sneezing, coughing, sweating, foggy brain and other such nastitees (not a word, but I like it.)
I’m in my dry coughing, nose leaking day. Nice to be past the scratchy sore throat day.
I took a very hot bath with 2 cups of apple cider vinegar - the recommended treatment to move toxins out of the lymph system and rebalance its acidity. As I sat in the tub I wondered if in Ireland lymph nodes are called nymph nodes?
Anyway, in order to take a bath, I had to clean the tub.
I’ve been taking showers for a long time and not baths, and there’s that dirty-ness around on the bottom of the tub from my feet. So, I sucked it up, literally, and scrubbed out my tub. Luckily, my clogged sinuses kept me from smelling the cleaning products. All good.
Ahhh, a clean tub. I’ve been wanting to do that for so long. In the past I’ve actually hired a cleaning person to clean my bathroom - just the bathroom - for $25! Just a small nice thing to do for oneself now and then.
So, my cold will move out in the next 2 days - a 5 dayer - that’s my plan anyway.
Oh, by the way, another way to head off a cold - which I’d forgotten to do since I’ve not had one in ages - is at the first sign of a cold, take 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in half a cup of water several times a day. Why? The same reason to take a bath in vinegar - the body becomes more alkaline during a cold and the vinegar will help to rebalance the body’s acid level.
