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.

Hi every body on this site, I want to give a testimony about my HIV virus that was cured by a large caster. 4 months I must be an HIV. I never think that I live it again and I am very grateful to this great man named High Priest Dr.otonu HIV AIDS who cured my last 4 weeks. I was in great pain so I told one of my best friend; she told me it's not a big caster that can cure my HIV. I asked her if she had her email, she gave me her email and sent by email. He spoke to me and make the necessary rituals and he told me that after two weeks you should go for a test and I did, when the doctor told me that I am now HIV negative, I could not believe myself, I went to see another doctor the result was still the same, I was human on the planet earth again, so I emailed and thanked him. Please, if you are having a similar problem please visit / contact him email (otonuspelltemple@gmail.com) or (otonuspelltemple@yahoo.com) or by calling (+2348169616855).

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,

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

Hi
I slept with my girlfriend who was away for a longtime and she didn’t tell me that she had herpes. I had so much heart broken after knowing that I have contacted genital herpes. I just committed one sin and I'm gone forever. Until i read of Dr. Maccus online and i contacted him for help, he give me all the procedure in which i followed and take the herbal medicine as instructed and he told me to go for test. To my greatest joy was that the virus was totally flushed out of my system, I pray that God should strengthen Dr. Maccus for taking this disease away from my body.
Honestly in my heart i want to sincerely thank Dr. Maccus for making normal again and to all those who are in pain because of this disease don't be discourage. I pray that he that did it for me will also do it for you, you can contact him with this email address dr.maccusherpescure@gmail.com
