Top 10 Cold and Flu Remedies:
*Garlic: Take as a supplement when your energy starts to feel low. Garlic will give you an immediate boost of immunity.
*Elderberry Syrup: Packed with anti-oxidants, elderberries are a popular choice for kids. (And adults cause it tastes incredible!)
*Apple Cider Vinegar: A natural probiotic when made at home.
*Vit C: Take up to 10,000 mg per day of Vitamin C to kick any cold or flu down.
*Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide in ears: This is a great tip to remember. Just a few drops in the ears can eliminate any virus that is airborne.
*Oil of Oregano: This one takes a hit to the taste buds if you aren’t an oregano fan. I add it to my daily herbal tea when needed. Save this remedy for the colds and viruses that have you feeling a bit chilled.
*Eucalyptus (external only!): Make an herbal steam with eucalyptus and other essential oils to steam out the stuffed nose.
*Peppermint: Nothing soothes my sore throat like a cup of peppermint tea. Add a touch of raw honey and lemon, and your sore throat will adios.
*Vit D: Take as a supplement, or get your Vitamin D naturally from stinging nettle tea or mushrooms.
