Sharing a juicy family secret

OK people. This is why you come to my blog. I've got something to say and it's JUICY and it's from my family. (are you nervous mom?) he he he he

Well. . . maybe it's not what you think. But you'll be happy to have learned this bit of info. You may actually come back and thank me one day.

Here's the deal. If you've read my blog the past month you've probably noticed the posts have been few and I've talked about illness running around the house. Well, to top off this "lovely" (ah-hem) month, I developed the grand-daddy of upper respiratory infections. I'll spare you the details. I've been about as healthy as a slug at a salt convention and as useful as a bull at Tea Party.

I do have one thing to offer, my friends. It's the blessed home remedy that my parents passed on to me on how to relieve stomach discomfort. I've never personally known it to fail.

It's easy and it's YUMMY!

Are you ready?

OK. Here it is.

It's JELLO. Not the chilled kind. What you do is get a box of sugar free gelatin mix. Any flavor will do. Prepare it according to the directions. BUT you don't chill it in the fridge. Instead, you pour the liquid into a glass and sip it through a straw. The liquid gelatin coats your throat, stomach and other innards so that no matter what way the stomach discomfort has chosen to manifest itself it provides relief for either (ah-hem) end.

I'm surprised that more people haven't heard of this just for the plain fact that it works so well. I dont' have to fight the kids to take it either. As a matter of fact they ask for it. My kids refer to it as Jello Juice (hence the title of my post). :0D Everyone that I've shared this with has marveled at the results. This also helps to ease nausea. A great thing for pregnant women to try or just anyone who feels icky in the belly and wants it to go away.

So. Now you know the secret too. I hope you'll never need it, but if you do . . . you'll be glad that you know! (P.S. it's good to keep a box or 2 in your pantry just in case. You never know when you'll need it.)

Hello land o' ye bloggers. This being my inaugural post and all, please allow me to introduce myself. I am Chirsty's (sic) lesser-half. What, you may ask, has pulled me from the land of anonymity? Well, in response to Kelly's post I wanted to be the first (and loudest) to respond. We are definitely, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT expecting another child!

I admit this is totally what I was thinking as I read the post!

Brenda said...

OMG! Son's doctor told me about this little trick years ago when he was just a small thing...I've used it for years for him and it has always worked...

Who knew I was keeping a secret all these years...and they said I couldn't do it...grin...Glad you're feeling better!

C.R. Evers said...

Thnx Shelli. I wish I "felt" like fun.

LOL, Kelly. You brought my Anonymous hubby out of lurkerdom! :0)

Hi honey!

Hey PJ. sorry to disappoint, but 3 is all I can handle. Jello Juice is as interesting as the news is going to get in my house. The only baby I'm ever going to expect again will come in the form of a book deal!

Hey Brenda! You're the 1st person I've met so far that has heard of this before. We need to spread the word. This works way better than any OTC meds!

Christina Farley said...

Never heard of this but I'm intrigued. Wish I had known this when I was pregnant. I was desperate to try ANYTHING.

Will try this. Thanks!

Angela said...

That's brilliant! I'll def try this the next time the flu hits my place...

Thanks for passing this on.
