Day 21

Tuesday, December 21, 2010
Do you have a special, non-traditional cure for colds or some other illness? Share it with us.

This prompt made me laugh out loud, given all the whining I've been doing lately about being sick. Obviously, my non-traditional cure is to bitch and moan on my blog, and then not do anything else!!

In all seriousness, I've NEVER been a proponent of the "better living through chemicals/pharmaceuticals" school of thought. It's VERY rare that I take any kind of medication. I've mentioned before that I endured a horrific and long labor, and then birth, without the aide of any drugs. I've had root canals without drugs.
I've suffered with migraines nearly my entire life, yet I only deal with them by closing myself in a dark room and/or sleeping. I think you get the picture. I guess my non-traditional cure is to let nature take its course. So far, it's kept me alive for over 4 decades! ;-)

And for those comments I tip my hat to you! You are amazing!

I made candied bacon and it was amazing. It was a super simple recipe with brown sugar. You will not regret making it. I believe in living better through bacon.

I love the DWTS and the Christmas card!

I love your "non-traditional cure." Thousands of bloggers can't be wrong! =)
Having grown up without the benefit of pharmaceuticals (as a Christian Scientist), I have a bias toward my right to use them...but they don't always work, as we both know.
