The Best Natural Home Remedy for the Flu

IMG_7942.jpgHere in the U.S., we’ve entered an early and unexpected flu season, with most of the country experiencing high levels of flu-like illness.

Influenza is a virus, and once contracted you may experience a variety of symptoms that range from mild to severe. Common symptoms are a dry cough, fever, body aches, chills, and headache.

While the flu can often go away on its own within 7 to 10 days, there are two choices for speeding up recovery. Antiviral medicine targets the virus itself, while over the counter and complementary treatments can offer relief for the symptoms while the body’s immune system heals itself.

But the best defense to the flu is a strong immune system.

Our immune systems are a perfectly integrated network of cells and organs that together defend against disease. The human body naturally manufactures antibodies as part of our immune systems that assist in destroying abnormal or foreign cells. If your immune system is weak, however, it will not be able to fight the rapidly multiplying flu virus in your body.

Ginger (zingiber officinale) is one of many natural medicinal agents that can shore up your immune system, as well as treat the symptoms of the flu.

Used since ancient times, ginger has powerful antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties.

The warming, antiviral properties present in ginger stimulate circulation and help loosen mucus from the lungs and sinuses. The gingerol in ginger is an essential oil that warms the body, stimulates perspiration, reduces fever, and loosens phlegm.


The best way to treat flu symptoms is to drink several cups of hot ginger tea a day.

You can steep fresh, shredded ginger in hot water for 15 minutes and then add some honey and lemon. Or for added convenience and more consistent flavor, you can use ginger powder, following the recipe below.

Drink up for a healthy immune system and a natural way to treat the flu.

Organic Ginger Tea

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup hot water
¼–½ tsp. Organic Ginger Powder (or fresh grated ginger)
1 lemon
1 TBS honey

Mix well and drink hot.

I caught genital herpes from my ex boyfriend who never had any symptoms. I have had it for 1 year and 4 months now,and it has affected my life. I have told my husband who I trusted about it and I have never had a bad reaction, it has affected my new relationship with my husband. People think herpes is really a minor skin irritation herpes has a long term effects on health. The stigma attached to this virus by ignorant people is ridiculous. Most people have herpes in one form or another. I would like to advise people on how i get rid of my herpes.i was reading a comment on the internet,and i saw a testimony posted by a woman from island that she got rid of her herpes with the help of doctor Lusanda. so i was so happy when i saw that post,that his herbal medication is is genuiue .i quickly emailed him and within couple hours he responded to my email.i explain things to him he told me not to worry and within days after contacting him i received the herb via DHL.i followed the prescription of the herb.after 16 days of usage i found out that my herpes was no more my doctor was also suprise with the change, he also called 2 other doctors to conduct seperate test on me and they both came out with same result NEGATIVE,when some of my friends who had herpes saw me they were surprise and i also introduced them Dr Lusanda and they have been since cured from herpes,kindly contact Dr Lusanda via this email drlusandaherbal(at)gmail(dot)com or website on www(dot)drlusandaherbal(dot)weebly(
