Natural Cures for Cold and Flu Season

This stuff is supposed to be awesome! I didn't realize I had the Flu otherwise I would have taken it-*forehead slap*

The past few weeks have been crazy- both my kids have been sick, and I got my very first ever case of the Flu. I haven't been to the Gym in about 2 weeks, but have done a few Garage WODs here and there. It's funny- in the past 2 years I don't think I've ever taken this much time off of Crossfit. All the little nagging aches and pains are gone, and even though I'm a bit weaker, I actually feel good~ ready to get back to it!

Here are a few things I recommend if you start to feel under the weather:

GSE: Grapefruit Seed Extract antibiotic, antifungal, antimicrobial, anti-everything!~ 15 drops in 4 oz. of OJ (it has to be OJ. This stuff is strong and nasty!)

Colloidal Silver: A natural antibiotic~ 1 tsp per day

Vitamin D3: I take 4,000 IU per day~ most illnesses can be traced back to a lack of Vit D 

And, like your mama always said- plenty of rest... I got so much "rest" that I am now completely caught up on every single season of every single Real Housewives show out there. Um, did I just admit that?!

Meet Cassie!

Cassie- July 2010
Cassie has been training with me since May 2010. She is a hard worker who always is first to grab the heavier weights! Cassie is a motivator to the rest of the group, and she was the only one to show up last week in the freezing cold weather!

Cassie Feb 2011
Recently Cassie decided to take on the Trojan Challenge and has had phenomenal results! Here is what she had to say about making the switch to Paleo:

"I have always been active and a big proponent of exercise and eating right.  Since joining Crossfit - specifically Kat's Bootcamp coupled with the Trojan Challenge - I am stronger than ever and am much more energetic.  I've changed my diet to include more protein, especially in the morning, and have cut out virtually all gluten and dairy while adding tons of veggies.  So far, I have lost 5 pounds (I think now it's more like 7 or 8!) and am feeling much leaner - especially around my middle!  In just a few short weeks, these small changes to my fitness regime have made an amazing impact."

Congratulations Cassie! I'm so proud of you and I can't wait to see your results on March 5!
