Staying healthy and getting healthy without resorting to over the counter medicines and antibiotics should be our priority.
Here are a few things you can do to boost your immunity and quickly recover from cold or flu at home.
Drink ginger tea, take a bath infused with ginger and bicarb soda (put 1/3 cup of bicarb soda and 1/3 cup of powdered ginger into a hot tub and then soak the body from the neck down).
Or you can try a ginger steam treatment. Boil one teaspoon powdered ginger in a pint of water. Turn off the stove, put a towel over your head, and inhale the ginger-infused steam through your nostrils for about 5 minutes. This will relieve congestion and help you feel much better.
Avoid mucous forming foods such as:
Milk, cheese, yogurt, ice cream
(at least until you are sure that the congestion has completely cleared up and not coming back)
Drink a lot of plain hot water to flush out whatever needs to be flushed out.
Take some vit c, and take some echinacea drops (12 drops, 5 x daily)
