Whole 30 v The Summer Cold

Recommended Posts

Hi chaps,

I'm on Day 13 of Whole 30, and feeling wrecked!

Caught a summer cold the day before my hubby and I started, but decided to carry on since I figured I would be feeding my body lots of vitamins/minerals to help get over it.

The first week I started feeling better, and then BAM, it came back for round 2! It's now 14 days into my cold and still feeling hungover evey morning, horrible cough, sore throat, sinuses, etc etc. Hubby, of course, is fine.

I don't mean to play my sad violin, here, but I'm just curious if a) I'm putting too much stress on my system, which may be too busy adapting to Whole30 to fight off my cold? And B) if there's anything I could be adding/changing to my Whole 30 that would help quicken my recovery?

I take a daily multivitamin. Also? I'm getting sick of eggs...

Whenever I have a cold, I make sage tea. Sage is an anti-viral and really helps sore throats. I used to use freah sage when I hhad a garden but noe get red sage from the herbalist. However I've also just used the stuff in my spicerack when I've run out. Hope you feel better soon.
