100% Natural Cold and Flu Treatment
I don’t take antibiotics nor any other medication for the cold or the flu. I very seldom have a cold or flu. Should I however get a bad sore-throat or feel that a cold/ flu is on its way my ‘home-treatment’ entails the following:
During meal-time I include the following foods and spices:
Lemon, honey, turmeric (fresh turmeric or in powder), peri-peri (fresh jalapeno or in powder), white or black pepper (freshly ground/ powder), garlic (fresh garlic is more effective), onions – you can easily add these to any meal.
This recipe for a bad Cold or the Flu I learned from my dad. Thank you Dad! I have put it to good effect many a time.
Add into a cup:
- Grated rind of a full lemon (optional)
- squeeze an entire lemon
- half a clove of garlic (slice it into small tiny pieces)
- half a teaspoon of ginger (in powder)
- 1 tbspoon honey (preferably raw, unheated and non-radiated honey).
Mix the aforementioned. Do not add any water. Do not warm up. Drink 2x tea-spoons 3x a day. If you prepare the abovementioned syrup in the morning it will last you the entire day.
Have You Got a Sore-Throat?
Add the following into a cup:
- Half a teaspoon of coarse sea-salt
- sprinkle some white or black pepper (powder)
- sprinkle some ginger (powder).
Mix. Place into the microwave for 10 seconds.
Gargle 3 time a day.
Add a dessert spoon of honey to a glass of milk. Warm the milk and honey in a microwave and drink. If you do not mind alcohol, add a single shot of whiskey to the milk. Warm milk and honey? You will certainly sleep better!
Your body needs rest to heal. 8-hour sleep is fundamental for well-being particularly when you have a cold.
Consistency is Key
Do not give up just because at the end of Day #1 of your treatment you did not fully recovered. Continue with the treatment until the cold/ flu is completely gone. A balanced diet consisting of fruits and vegetables, quality protein, complex carbs and healthy fats will strengthen your immune system.
Have a speedy recovery!
