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.

Just wanna say a big thank you Neme Amber for introducing me to Dr Emmanuel the great HERBALIST that helped me prepare home remedies that cured my herpes (HSV 2).
I was infected with HSV 2 for the past two years and i was unable to get a better job cos all the company i was to get employed checked our blood test and found out that i was positive to GENITAL HERPES and i loosed employment.
So i was desperate to get a cure so that i can live normal and get my job training.
i earlier made some research and i contacted some doctors online but they keep on asking for moaccccccney for courier after that they'll tell you that tax and so more so i became broke and frustrated.
One day i was less busy so i decided to make latest research on herpes cure and i found a site were everyone was talking about DR Emmanuel and hes ability to cure herpes.
So i discussed with Neme Amber and she explained to me that its very easy working with Dr Emmanuel so i contacted DR Emmanuel via email (traditionalherbalhealingcentre@gmail.com) and he helped me just as he has helped others now im cured and different medical centers has tested me and approved me cured.
so i decided to thank Neme Amber cos she made it possible for me.
and i can also assure you that he can also help you. so if you need the service of DR emmanuel, ill put his details here so that you can easily get in touch wif him.
his email: traditionalherbalhealingcentre@gmail.com or visit Www.traditionalherbalhealingcentre.web

it gives me great joy to share with you on how I was cured of a dreaded virus called HERPES by Dr Zuma, a powerful traditional herbalist. The agony and pains I passed through while I suffered greatly from the shackles of HERPES was so excruciating that it rendered me hopeless, financially handicap and the worse of all, giving up on fate of dying so untimely. I was on google surfing the net since HERPES rendered me jobless and I incidentally came across several comments, appraising Dr Zuma on how good he is and of the numerous diseases he was able to deliver people from. Infact he was reffered bto as a saviour. The comments were encouraging and I stooped to try my luck. I got in touch with him (Dr Zuma) through his email (drzumaherbalhome@outlook.com), he was so confident of himself that there is no affliction too difficult for him to change for good and this gave me hope I once lost. Dr Zuma thereafter said he will be send across to me a herbal mixture as a remedy to the virus with instructions on how to use it. I did just as Dr Zuma directed me and dearly beloved, after a couple of days, the torments of HERPES ceased automatically and today, I am sound healthwise, hale and harty even working at the moment. It is indeed a great news to those who must be suffering from one disease or virus, Dr Zuma is able to challenge that affliction. Why not visit him today through call/whatsapp him through his mobile number +2348119007839 his web/site http:/%
