@tinamarie1974 yes. It’s important to go to a licensed jewelry grinder. A lot of places are run out of alleys, and basically just use a mortar and pestle, or worse, just pound on the gems with a crescent wrench or whatever they have lying around. What you want is an outfit with a diamond-tipped burr grinder and a good filtration system so that you don’t get any machine oil in the powder. (I could tell you a story about my cousin Darryl here, but it’s a bit opaque.)
@tinamarie1974 it matters where you get the amethysts, too. Ideally you want to only harvest them when your rising sign is in Leo. Leo controls a lot of your respiratory virus issues.
If you can’t harvest them yourself, it’s really important that it’s done by someone related to you. And I know, you’re thinking, “Well, aren’t we all related, in a way?!” and I’m like “Yeah, but…”
See, amethysts are strange. They will bond to a family. And there are probably, like, faerie powers involved, and the Meztec Council probably has a role, but all that’s outside my training. So, anyway, have it done by a relative. If you’re not closely related to anyone in Brazil, you can sign some adoption papers over the internet. The amethysts I’ve used that were collected by my “cousin” Darryl seem to recognize temporal authority in that regard.

Drugs, lots and lots of drugs. I’m talking OTC here. I don’t know what you were thinking, cause doubt THAT stuff helps with colds. Usually pseudophedrin for sinus, ibuprofen for fever, guaifenesin for stuffy nose and dextromethorphan for cough. Get them separately and take as necessary. Too many all-in-one have things you don’t need at the time.
I used to get 2-3 colds every fall-winter-spring that usually morphed into sinus infections, lasting 2-5 weeks at a time. Then I had surgery to remove a polyp that was blocking a sinus from draining and haven’t had an infection since. Colds became a 2-3 day minor inconvenience, easily treated with OTC meds. And as I get older, I don’t even seem to get the minor colds as often anymore. In the last year of lockdown isolation, I haven’t had even a minor cold.
@macromeh Ditto up until the polyp… haven’t had that, but i also haven’t had a Sinus, or Ear infection in about 6 years, ever since I started taking Olive Leaf Extract daily.
is it a magic cure all, no, I did just have Covid… but I only had typical Cold/Flu symptoms.
My Dad, who doesn’t take Olive Leaf, developed Covid related double Pneumonia and had to be hospitalized.
am I suggesting there’s a Clear causation there? of course not. that would be silly.
I’m 41, and He’s 75. that plays a part.
Cold,flu, pmeumonia and my ND said even sepsis with IV. Here’s 2 MD’s talking about it from the HIghwire. I used to get sick twice a year which always ended in bronchitis, but no more. So grateful. Doesn’t matter they’re talking c-19, it works for any type of cold! Dr Linus Pauling has extensive research on it. (Not selling anything, it’s better to watch than for me to explain how to take it, short interview) https://www.bitchute.com/video/oeneLzpQrEcZ/
mucinex. i go through an entire bottle or pack of pills at regular intervals like it was antibiotics. by the end, i’m good. if the congestion is really, really bad i will also use nose drops (not nasal spray) before bed so i can get to sleep.
food-wise, egg drop soup (lipton chicken noodle + egg) is my go-to because that’s what my mom always made me. the medicine handles the physical stuff, the soup is to comfort the mind.
