Over and over I ran to the store trying every "natural" remedy I could find that I didn't know how to make myself only to have to run back to the store to get tylenol and motrin because it didn't work. I also tried making juices, smoothies with real Aloe leaf in it, herbal pops, sovereign silver, etc etc etc. All of these homemade remedies were great in decreasing the length of my kids cold or flus, but I could never find something that would keep them from having fevers going up to 104 degrees or higher.
Frustrated I cried out to Abba asking Him to please direct me to a good solution (why I didn't do this sooner is beyond me lol). Then I happened to express my frustration to my bestie who is very knowledgeable in homemade remedies and she told me exactly what she does that has been working for her for years now.
The truth is, there isn't just ONE remedy that will help, but SEVERAL. 3 in particular. They are a strong kind of colloidal silver which she makes herself using a kit, a foot rub using a special blend of infused oils and essential oils, and...drum roll please...inserting onions into their socks.
Yes you read that correctly. I know it sounds CRAZY, like you are trying to protect them from vampires or something. BUT IT TOTALLY WORKS! I myself have tried it on both of my boys and not only have they maintained a low fever, never getting above 102, but they also are full of life and vigor and can keep functioning in daily life (albeit, a little slower than usual). They also get a full night's sleep rather than waking up regularly in the middle of the night due to discomfort.
This is the very first time this has ever happened in all my years of parenting. AND, this is the first year EVER we haven't all gotten sick at least once right at the change of the season. Myself, the Mister, and our daughter have yet to get sick. When one of us would get sick we'd all get sick. Not so this time. We are an extremely social family, seeing and visiting people daily and almost all of them have already dealt with a cold or flu in their families 2 or 3 times already. This was us also for years...except this one!
For those of you who are visual, here is a live video I made detailing everything above:
Try this out yourselves. What have you got to lose???
In case you missed it above, here is the link to my recipe for making the cold and flu foot-rub.
