WOOT for GOOT!!

desperate to come up with something to help K with a cold that went straight to her lungs (of course)

we’ve got a wonderful cough tincture (Usnea, Inula & Althea) from our medical herbalist

been working on potent acupressure points thanks to recent shiatsu sessions (when K will let me – she’s been so hyped with this cold that any touching in those points results in instant withdrawal reaction – I could manage some while she slept fitfully)

some herbal brews: mint family (cat nip, spearmint, lemon balm) plus fennel seed, rose hips, calendula, some late season red clover & stinging nettles; fresh grated ginger & turmeric & lemon slices

finally, last night, she was struggling with breathing & fighting a low fever, I found GOOT.  slathered that on her feet, chest & back a couple of times, and she’s almost totally back to normal today.

this is amazing.  this kind of thing (especially once in her lungs) usually takes K a week or more to get over to this point.  one night of the GOOT.  well, let’s see if it’s repeatable… you know it, I know it, we’ll get more opportunities to test it.
