Lathe Lavada - Edition 7


During the winter months, colds and the flu can spread like wildfire.

research even suggests that it can shorten flu symptoms by up to three days. EUCALYPTUS If you’re suffering from congestion or can’t stop coughing, eucalyptus may offer the relief you’re looking for. Available in several different forms, including syrup, oil, and dried leaves, eucalyptus can be used as an expectorant or as a way to relieve a sore throat. When you’re at home and sick, try adding a few drops of eucalyptus oil to the water in a humidifier. The results are remarkably soothing! ZINC While many people turn to vitamin C to hurry through a cold, that’s not the supplement you should be focusing on. In fact, an overwhelming number of studies show that vitamin C does absolutely nothing to help shorten a cold. Instead, take zinc. You can find it as a nasal spray or lozenge, or even as part of a vitamin C supplement. One study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine found that those who took zinc reduced their recovery time from a cold by half. Cold symptoms among those taking a zinc supplement lasted about four days, while symptoms among those taking a placebo lasted about eight days.

Getting sick at least once during the season can be hard

to avoid, and once you are sick, you want nothing more than for it to be over and done. While there is no way to completely avoid getting sick, there are ways to speed up your recovery. Next time you’re suffering from a cold, try these remedies to get back on your feet a little bit faster. ELDERBERRY SYRUP Also referred to as elderberry extract, this syrup is made from a plant called European elder. It can be purchased at many health food stores or made at home (but use caution when doing this, since raw and undercooked elderberries are toxic). Many people swear by the berries’ ability to ease congestion and relieve a number of other cold symptoms. Plus, elderberry syrup is known for having anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties, making it an ideal tool for fighting the common cold. Some

She called me up; she said, ‘Hey cuz, if you have to sell one of your houses, keep this name in mind. I got some really good vibes from him off of the TV screen, and if you ever need him, I think he might help you.’” When she needed help a few months later, Cindy remembered her cousin’s advice. As a mother and grandmother, Cindy was okay with her kids living at one of her properties. “I had just planned on letting the kids continue living in the house,” she reflected. But a major life change shifted her plans. “When I got guardianship of my grandchildren, that’s when I blew it — that’s when I decided I was going to sweep house,” Cindy said with a look of determination. “By then, I already had

Lathe’s name and phone number, so that was just my next logical step.” When Cindy contacted First Prime Realty Group, Lathe and the team did all they could to ease her situation. “Working with Lathe’s Office has been very good,” the grandmother explains. “I really like the conversations and how much time Lathe spent on the phone with me to explain everything — that part of it was a godsend. Yes, I would recommend him. Working with all of them has just been great!”

In such a chaotic time, the last thing you need is to work with someone who doesn’t take the time to walk you through the process — or worse, takes advantage of your confusion.
