The Best Natural Home Remedy for the Flu

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 want to specially thank the God of Dr IYARE for saving me,...I got cured from HIV disease with is

powerful magical healing spell. Friends, I was HIV patient for 8 years, i saw a testimony on how Dr Iyare cured

people fom Hiv, herpes and other deadly disease, i did not believe that he could cure me from HIV haven spend so

much on drugs. I gave him a test by contacting him lol and behold, I had a completely new beginning and realised,

my suffers was out of ignorance and foolishness, especially disbelief and lack of information. Sad enough deception

by our medical doctors who overshadows magic healing spells as alternate to English medicine, knowing magic healing

spell is more potent effective and defiles all medical diagnoses, it works and that is miracle from what I

understand now.Dr Iyare, God will continue to bless you and your family. kindly contact him today If you happen to

find yourself in similar problems, you have equal chances and hope to get permanent solution, my personal and and

family life is a living testimony and thankful for heaven there are still such persons on face of this earth.His

heart desire granted...I will keep on writing and posting testimonies about your good work on the Internet.
