9 Natural Home Remedies for Flu That Never Fail

Ginger

With antibacterial properties, ginger is a great addition to the flu fighting arsenal.  It can easily be taken as a tea or used fresh.  You could even add it to your homemade broth.

To make ginger tea, use a ginger tea bag or grate fresh ginger root (about ½ teaspoon).  Allow it to steep and sweeten with a little honey if desired.

Ginger helps to reduce bronchial congestion  and contains natural cough suppressants called gingerols.

Vitamin C

As soon as you notice cold or flu symptoms, it’s time to take vitamin C.  To fight the symptoms, take high doses, about 3000 mg per day, in divided doses with food, until you have recovered. Then drop down to about 500 mg per day for ongoing immune system health.

 

Look for brands with added bioflavonoids, which have been shown to increase the effectiveness of vitamin C by up to 35%.

Be careful not to overdo the amount of Vitamin C you take, as flatulence or diarrhoea can develop.  If this happens, reduce the dose accordingly.

Vitamin C has been shown to reduce the duration of a cold and foods high in Vitamin C can also help e.g. oranges, red peppers, brussel sprouts, broccoli, strawberries, kale.

So it is a good idea to add these into the diet as well.

Essential Oils

There are several oils that have a potent effect on viral infections as they offer antiviral, antibiotic, antifungal and antiseptic properties.
