I’m so fortunate to be in a home with gardens and sunshine and greenery. It’s deeply healing. Not many had the privilege of that. So I’m very grateful…Having 17 herbs kadha.
It’s a phenomenal blend. Fresh fruits, sugarcane juice, coconut water, protein, easy-to-digest food, saltwater gargles, steam inhalation, balm on the chest.”

To allow my natural immunity and alternative healing and wellness practices to accelerate my healing. You do what’s right for you. Each to their own. Caution. Not panic.”
