Later that night, I noticed the side of my tongue was sore and the back of my throat was starting to get a little red. Paniced now. Went to the internet and AAAHHHH read that you CAN eat too much garlic and it CAN eat holes in your intestines (We all believe the internet, don't we?) OK, hot epsom bath and no more garlic tonight... going back to the honey onion syrup and On Guard throat drops! Tomorrow, tomorrow… ok now I sound like Annie.
Day 9 Tues
- There is no cure for the a common cold. This respiratory virus is nature's internal whisk broom, and everyone needs a housecleaning from time to time.
- Shortening it, protecting ourselves from bacterial overgrowth secondary infections can be possible. I hope there was a reason I ate that garlic!!! But if a secondary infection does brew, it's time to see a doctor. If in doubt, check it out!
- Can't believe everything you read on the internet, but it can be helpful if taken in careful doses.
- If it hurts to talk, stop using your voice! Cancel performances. No phone calls, no singing, vocal exercise should be stopped, don't even listen to music. Voice rest, hydration and sleep are non-negotiable to create a short duration of viral laryngitis and keep vocal inflammation from turning into vocal damage.
