Home Remedies For Colds And Flu
Plenty of garlic or the herb echinacea will help boost the immune system and stop colds and flu from getting a hold. If you should be unlucky, however, at the first sign of a cold and fever make up a mustard footbath by adding one teaspoon of dried mustard to a bowl of very hot water. Mustard has a warming effect and inhaling an infusion will clear phlegm and draw infection and congestion away from the chest.
Home remedies for Colds And Flu
Lemon and honey are traditional remedies for colds and flu - lemon because of its high vitamin C content and because it improves the body's ability to expel toxins, and honey because it can help to soothe a sore throat. You could make up a hot drink with the juice of two to four lemons and stir in a dessertspoon of honey for a comforting home remedy.
Add fresh ginger or peppermint, or their essential oils, to a hot bath or footbath. They both help you to perspire, which gets rid of toxins from the body. A ginger footbath also draws away blood from the head to the feet and in this way can reduce the heat congestion you so often feel in the rest of the body when you are suffering from a cold or flu.
Garlic is a natural antibiotic and is good for all bronchial problems and lung complaints. If you eat garlic neat, try eating a sprig of parsley or dandelion leaf afterwards to freshen your breath.
Onions are excellent for colds. Put a thick slice of onion into boiling water and add half a teaspoon of cayenne pepper. Strain and drink the liquid hot at bedtime.
Pour 600ml (1 pint) of hot water over a handful of fresh pine needles, put at owel over your head and inhale the vapours deeply to counteract congestion.
You can even add a little lemon and honey to the remaining water and drink it so that you increase your levels of vitamins C and A, which will help to speed up your recovery from illness.
Eat plenty of yogurt, which can kill bacteria on its own. It will also help your body to produce more antibodies that will kill any invading organisms.
