Easy Homemade Flu Remedies

It’s  the change of season during the month of September & October, Spring, I felt that a small article on cold and flu would be appropriate. Not only do we get winter flu but also change of seasons and summer flu. Probably the worst part of this is that you are not quite sick enough to stay at home, but still feel very out of sorts. The headaches, blocked nose and inability to concentrate, congested chest and all over body aches and pains, creates energy of total misery.

A good solution for this niggling phase of illness is to boost one’s immune system with natural cold remedies which do not need a prescription, and have far less side effects than antibiotics. (Immune Food Kits, LG/LA Kits) The next is to ensure that you clean out the entire body of any unwanted bacteria/virus/parasite that has brought about this weakened immune system. These detoxes would be Herbal Parasite Cleanse, Bowel Cleanse, Mop-up Cleanse, Kidney Cleanse and lastly Liver cleanse. By detoxing at least once a year, you are ensuring your body has a fighting chance to ward off any attacks as the seasons change.

Why Detox? What will this do to assist your body? A closer look at how your body functions will reveal that if your gut and bowel are blocked or impacted with old material, you disable the mucus membranes which allow the absorption of the nutrients to occur. No matter what you drink, eat or what supplements you take they will struggle to be absorbed into the body, normally resulting in some form of anemia, and thus opening your body to attack.

What must be understood is that we do live in times where most of our food, water and air are polluted in some way. The toxic levels we are dealing with today are so high that our bodies struggle to function, never mind heal itself. We need to clear out all unwanted toxins and unwanted energy so that our bodies can make use of the energy available to heal and function at the highest levels.

Then lastly, but probably the most important part of healing and ensuring our bodies remain strong, healthy and vibrant is our Ph Levels and Cellular water levels.

spicesResearch across the world has revealed, a long time ago, that if our bodies Ph level is balanced, that is not too acidic and not too alkaline, we will remain healthy and have no issues with dis-ease in our bodies. Why is this? Because a balanced Ph level in the body cannot feed parasites and dis-ease. Systems that are too acidic or too alkaline are breeding grounds for all kinds of disorders. Good examples are – cancer: It CANNOT survive in an alkaline body, joints and arthritis problems survive and flourish in an acidic body. So how do we balance our Ph levels?

Firstly, we must follow a lifestyle change into consuming live foods rich in nutrients, fiber enriched products, products that are not processed and treated with toxins and cut all junk food from our diets. The understanding must be that “Whatever I consume must feed my body, if it has no nutritional value I will not consume it”. Your body is just like a vehicle that needs fuel. If you use the wrong fuel the vehicle will not perform at it’s optimum level and will eventually give in and stop working.

The second, and probably the most unknown to us, is the cellular water in our bodies. Our bodies are made up of 75% water and all our cells of our organs are replaced every 7 years. So logic follows that if we have stagnant water in our bodies, we have a breeding ground for all kinds of dis-ease. The entire body’s cellular water is change every 3 weeks, so if we consume Living Water, rich in nutrients and un-treated, we are feeding our very cells. The basic structures of our bodies are being cleaned, washed out and replaced by fresh vibrant water. By doing this we place our systems into a completely different category. The body is detoxed by yearly regimes, the cells are feed by Living Water and now we can feel the vibrancy of the energy flowing through us, as our Ph levels are balanced, the cells are alive; our fuel is nourishing every part of us.

It may seem a huge task to accomplish, but really it is so simple and basic that most of us will not believe such simple things can change our whole body structures and health levels.

I would like to challenge all those that read this article to just give it a try. Prove to your selves that these simple adjustments can do wonders for your health, mind, body and soul.

I have included two simple recipes for sore throats and chesty coughs. Try this natural homemade cough remedy to clear your flu blues away.

flu fighter honey teaIngredients: (All available for Herba Farmacy)

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

Place all the ingredients in a small jar and shake to combine. Leave at room temperature for a few days or place in the refrigerator for longer storage. Shake well each time, before using. The spices will not dissolve into the liquid and it will remain watery. Take as needed.


honeyAn excellent pep-me-up tea for flu and colds:

10 Drops Ginger Tincture

10 Drops Hydrangea Root Tincture

1 Heaped Teaspoon Organic Honey

Organic Rooibos Tea

Boil water and make Rooibos tea, no sugar. Add drops into tea to dissipate the alcohol and honey and enjoy.

I hope this small article will assist you in better understanding the magnificence of your beautiful bodies and that you will take all measures to heal it, support it, feed it and Love it.
