Treat Flu Symptoms

If you have a cold or flu infection you need to take precautions that will prevent its spread and reduce its severity and duration.

  • Speak to your healthcare practitioner at the very earliest signs of an infection. If you begin taking the appropriate herbs and nutrients immediately, you can often prevent the infection from taking hold.
  • Wash your hands frequently throughout the day with soap and warm water.
  • Always cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough.
  • Avoid close contact with other people as much as possible and avoid crowded places.
  • Take time off, rest and stay warm. This gives the immune system a good chance to deal with the infection quickly and efficiently.
  • Include in your meals nutritious foods and plenty of fluids. Homemade soups with plenty of vegetables, ginger and garlic are great. They are very nutritious but do not take lots of energy to digest, leaving more energy for the immune system to do its job.
  • Avoid cold drinks and foods, fatty foods and foods containing sugar and artificial additives.
  • Excessive dairy foods may increase mucus production.

If you feel feverish make a cup of Flu Tea, rug up and sweat it out. You can repeat this as often as needed until the feverish symptoms have passed. A hot bath can also help to induce sweating.
