This morning my husband woke up with the flu. I remembered a line of defense I wanted to try, the Wellness Juice Shot.
Got the Flu?
It was looking like the Great Flu of 2012/13 was going to pass us by. The germaphobe in me had been taking all precautions. After school the boys were marched upstairs for nasal rinses, doses of elderberry syrup were being doled out—as was the ever-constant reminder to “GET YOUR FINGERS OUT OF YOUR NOSE!!”
Despite all efforts, the flu—or whatever bug it was—hit me and the boys this past week. One at a time we dropped like flies.
This morning my husband woke up with it, and that’s when I remembered one more line of defense I wanted to try in hopes of shortening his bout with it.
“Let’s do shots!” I said.
The Wellness Juice Shot
There is a little juice bar I duck into on occasion for their Wellness Shots. I was hooked the first time I threw one back with Jay, the owner. Into the juicer went celery, green apple, ginger and lemon. And the topper? Three dashes of cayenne pepper—yeah baby!
Thankfully I have a husband who’s game for most anything, natural and alternative remedies included. That and when you’re feeling crummy you’ll try just about anything.
He was game.
Three shots later he’s asleep on the couch. Did the shots help? Who knows. Were they fun to do? As good as clean fun gets.
