Last week, I came down with some sort of stomach bug. There is a stomach virus going around right now, but it could have just as easily have been me reacting to eggs again. The symptoms were the same as they were the last time I had a reaction to eggs.
Brian is traveling right now, so I really can’t afford to be down for long with any sort of illness. I have to be able to get them back and forth from school, and to their activities. And I need to be able to work!
I have really gotten into studying natural remedies and natural health, so I was prepared for how I wanted to handle this stomach bug. There were only 4 things I did (besides trying to stay hydrated), and the stomach bug was gone in less than 24 hours.
1. Essential Oils
The very first thing I did was break out my essential oils. I have a mixture of DigestZen and Wild Orange diluted with fractionated coconut oil in a rollerball. I rubbed that oil all over my stomach and massaged in a clockwise motion. Within minutes the stomach cramping was gone. It was amazing. Read which brand of essential oils I recommend.

Thank you to Nature’s Path for sponsoring this Oatmeal Day giveaway!
Did you know that October 29 is National Oatmeal Day? I didn’t either until Nature’s Path, one of my favorite organic brands, enlightened me! They sent me a sweet little package of oatmeal, a mug and spoon so I could get ready for National Oatmeal Day.
They also included an Ode to Oatmeal:
The weather is cooler the leaves are in full color
Now eat this hot breakfast made by your mother
It is a bowlful of love made just for you
To keep you going for all that you do
Did you know that oatmeal is healthy and delicious
And packed full of antioxidants it’s so nutritious
Was there ever a cereal more deserving of adulation
From all of us who love this taste sensation
So sit right down, add some fruit, nuts and well wishes
Celebrate oatmeal day, and honey, please do your dishes
Indulging in a bowl of delicious Nature’s Path oatmeal took me back to my corporate days. Every morning when I arrived at my office, I would make myself a cup of oatmeal and grab a cup of coffee. It was my morning ritual. I only wish I had known about Nature’s Path back then because their oatmeal is so much tastier!
