So im trying VERY hard to take NOTHING.. the first trimester is when they say it is very important to watch what you put in your body. (i know it is all the time, but you know what i mean) i have a horrible cold.. runny nose, aches ect...
I can handle not taking meds, but i want cough drops.. some web sites say dont do it the first trimester, some say honey ones are okay.. i see my dr on the 13th of this month for my first ultra sound, but i was just seeing if any of you know? im about 6 1/2 weeks right now..
Thanks in advance!
Avoid dairy while you are sick - it can increase the amount of mucus your body produces.
Peppermint tea is great! Peppermint is a natural decongestant; just be sure that peppermint is the only ingredient.
Honey (antibacterial) and cayenne pepper (anti-inflammatory) is the best cough syrup.throat soother.
Emergen-C will help you stay hydrated and give you an energy boost; be sure to mix it with cold water. The lowest price is at Trader Joes, though it is sold just about everywhere (Target, Walgreens, etc.).
I am a big believer in the power of foods. This healing foods pyramid from the University of Michigan is great: http://www.med.umich.edu/umim/food-pyramid/index.htm
