Yay! I had a night of no coughing which would normally mean uninterrupted sleep if I weren’t getting up every couple of hours to pee. But, I’ll take multiple trips to the bathroom through the night over coughing any time. The coughing isn’t gone completely (during the day), but it’s getting better every 4-6 hours (herbal cough drops, organic herbal tea, and my ND’s herbs are all helping). I can breathe a bit better. I’m more rested. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. :) By the way… thank you everyone for your well wishes, energy, and prayers. Your support always means so much to me.
Today, I made a bronchitis busting shake to kick my health up a notch! Now, it’s not really a bronchitis busting solution; I’m not claiming it does anything drug-like or magical (you hear me FDA?!) lol – but, it does have ingredients that are known for respiratory / bronchial health. ;)
One of the commenters of my last post suggested I get the following into my diet (Sharanya – thank you!) - black pepper, turmeric, and cinnamon since these can support bronchial health. So… I did just that with the following nutrient rich shake (it’s MEGA YUM!).
