You'd probably have to work in hospice like I do to appreciate the way our minds work when it comes to "issues." We can't have a simple headache; no, it must be a glioblastoma. Backache? Bone cancer. So is it any wonder that my persistent dry cough, excess (but clear) phlegm and slightly delicate tummy makes me think cancer? I have a great hospice doctor friend who listened to me list my symptoms and he said it sounded more like an irritation than an allergy or a cancer. So with that in mind, I've made a super-duper tincture to cure everything. I drank it as a tea for a few days but I never seem to stick to the herbal tea thing. However, I will put drops of tincture in my coffee or water. My tincture "brewed" for two weeks in glycerin. It contains Cinnamon, Sassafras, Bilberry (might as well work on eyesight while I'm at it!), Comfrey, Elecampane, Dandelion, Fenugreek, Ginger, Marshmallow, Schizandra, Thyme and Wild Cherry Bark. And yes, I'd have thrown in the kitchen sink if it would've fit and done some good. So today, I've strained it into a 2oz bottle with a dropper and I'm ready to tackle this thing.
One advantage of working in hospice is that I get to play with all the therapy dogs. This is Asher, a Corgi.
