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
Ľ–˝ tsp. Organic Ginger Powder (or fresh grated ginger)
1 lemon
1 TBS honey

Mix well and drink hot.

My mother was diagnosed with ALS in May 2016. Her doctor put her on riluzole, letting her know there was no cure but the medication might provide her a few more months of delayed symptoms. ALS progresses at different rates and affects different body parts first. My mother, being 73 at the time, fell into a category of what they call "fast progression" (older female). Her arms weakened first, then her hands, her mouth, and throat, and finally her lungs. Throughout her two-and-a-half-year ordeal, she was able to walk with assistance nothing was really working to help her condition.I took her off the riluzole (with the doctor’s knowledge) and started her on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis herbal formula i ordered for dr.unuareghe , her symptoms totally declined over a 5 weeks use of the ALS disease natural herbal formula. She's now almost 75 and doing very well, the disease is totally reversed!! you can contact dr.unuareghe on his email and get your cure also dr.unuareghecuringhome@gmail.com or wasapp he on +2349067894643

Do anyone still doubt natural herbs? I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. I wonder why people still spend their hard earn money on injections and drugs each time they are sick. Natural herbs can cure herpes, diabetics, asthma, HIV, hepatitis, etc. I've seen it with my own eyes. i was cured of HIV by this herbalist doctor who uses natural herbs to cure different kind of illness. Even Dr. Sebi prove to the whole world that natural herbs can cure all illness and he cured countless of people using natural herbs. i know is had to believe but am a living testimony. If anyone here is sick, why not give it a try, there is no harm in trying it. Contact Dr. Baba Ogu on: drbabaogu@gmail.com

IT IS REAL!!! HOW I COMPLETELY GOT RID OF 4 YEARS GENITAL HERPES WITHIN 7 DAYS... GOD IS AWESOME,I AM A LIVING TESTIMONY!!!!....

I have been dating for almost 7 years until i contracted GENITAL HERPES VIRUS from my Ex-boyfriend. Ever since then i have been searching for cure everywhere because i was feeling so uncomfortable having so many outbreaks, Most people have herpes in one form or another, i was first taking Antiviral medicines such as acyclovir (Zovirax), famciclovir (Famvir), and valacyclovir (Valtrex), which are recommended for treating primary genital herpes outbreaks..But i needed to get rid of it completely, I came across so many testimonies online speaking about cure to herpes. i was so eager to be completely cured, I became a victim of fraud after contacting several so-called herbal doctors i was referred to. I lost a lot of money but i didn't stop searching for a cure.
Then one faithful day,i came across a testimony of a lady saying that she got her Genital herpes cured by a GREAT HERBAL DOCTOR she called Dr. Aramide by contacting him through his email address. And she advised anyone with GENITAL HERPES or SIMPLEX HERPES to contact him for HERBAL CURE. I contemplated for about 4 hours whether or not to contact him. Then something inside of me told me to give a try. I then contacted him through his email and told my problems to him. He told me all the things I needed to do and also gave me instructions
