Send your energy down and around your body – when we catch a virus often our energy is stuck in the chest and face area. One way to physically do this is to rub peppermint lotion on your feet. You will consciously send energy down as your feet respond to the peppermint.
Elderberry Syrup – I try to take this daily when it’s cold season. When I’m getting sick, I take it every few hours. It’s super easy to make and you can find the ingredients at The Elderberry in Charlottesville.
Rest – when we feel like we MUST carry on, it actually prolongs the length of our illness and we infect others. Often illness is a gift for us to slow down, recharge and sometimes it is good practice for setting boundaries.
Gan Moa Ling, Chinese supplement. An acupuncturist introduced this to me 20 years ago and it has been a lifesaver. I take it at first sign of a cold and often it has prevented me from getting sick.
Vitamin C and Echinacea Tincture - there is lots of research out there about this.
Throat coat tea or fresh lemon, ginger, honey tea. Chop 1-2” of ginger add to 6 cups of water, boil for 30 minutes, strain, add lemon and honey to taste.
Change your hand towel frequently - this is so simple, but super important especially with kids.
Epsom salt bath or baking soda bath – this helps to relax your muscles and clear your energy field.
Diffuse essential oils – there are several great ones – clove, eucalyptus, rosemary.
Go to bed at least an hour early – yes, this is different than number 3.

I’ve been asked by clients for help learning more about how they run their energy, what to do with the seemingly random intuition they receive, and the “so what” feeling with this information. I offered this class in September and several folks asked if I could offer it again and this time it's in Charlottesville. It will be held at Cocoa & Spice, where you can find delicious chocolates while learning more about how your intuition comes in.
Here's a little about the class, we all get intuitive hits or experience knowings: those things that we often don’t listen to or recognize until after the fact, and then go, “Oh! I had a feeling that was going to happen,” or,” I knew something was off.” We will practice various techniques for how you work with this information and how it enters your energy field. If you would like to expand your intuitive skills, more details found here. No experience necessary.
