Welcome to Hayward

Kicking around town can be lots of fun. Come join me.

1.  Take Ivy Leaf to Clear Congestion. 
Ivy Leaf is as effective as prescription ambroxol at clearing congestion-causing phlegm from the lungs, thanks to its natural expectorants, which thin mucus and trigger a productive cough.  Take 50 mg., three to four times daily.  Findy Ivy Leaf in drugstores.

2.  Loosen phlegm with NAC
Regularly taking N-acetylcysteine (NAC) can also help reduce the thickness of phlegm, relieving a persistent cough.  Take 500 mg., twice daily, for either acute or chronic bronchitis.  NAC is available in most drugstores.

3.  Turn on a Humidifier to breathe easier.
Warm moist air helps loosen mucus in your bronchial tubes, making it easier to cough up.  Just be sure to clean the humidifier according to the product manual to avoid germ growth in the water container.

4.  Try a proven herbal germ fighter - Pelargonium
Pelargonium can relieve chest pain, fever and congestion for up to 97% of bronchitis sufferers within one week.  The herb works by speeding up the motion of cilia, tiny hair-like structures in the nose and airways that capture and eject invading germs.  Take 30 drops three times daily for seven days.  (Umcka ColdCare by Nature's Way is the most widely available pelargonium supplement; find it in Walgreens and other drugstores.)


1,000 mg of Vitamin C Daily.

Repeat positive mantra to relieve stress - such as "I Can Handle Anything" - several times daily.

Prevent plaque buildup with tumeric.
Eating 1/4 tsp. daily of this golden-hued Indian spice can help prevent - and even reverse - Alzheimer's disease says Ann Kulze, M.D. author of Dr. Ann's 10-Step Diet.  Turmeric's active ingredient - curcumin - energizes immune cells, helping them quickly clear away 30% of damaging plaque deposits in the brain.

Auntie Isabel is getting her hair done in Hayward today, because tomorrow is Thanksgiving.  We are all going to try "Bake N Bite" the restaurant that replaced Dino's over on Industrial  Not sure what it is like.  Always fun to try new restaurants.  Oh Uh  Just looked them up on Yelp.  This is a Filipino restaurant with not a very good review.  No way will Uncle Joe eat here.  He is the most finicky eater.  Plain hot dogs, plain hamburgers, plain chili, cheese enchilada - that's about it.  Think we had better find another place to eat for lunch today.  Went to Denny's and had so much fun.  This was really a fun day.

4:30am  Just turned on the TV to HSN and ordered the personal Hunter Ultrasonic Personal Humidifier.  I tend to get bronchitis in the winter.  Fingers crossed, this will help me avoid it this year.
