Quick Natural Tips for Preventing & Alleviating the Flu

Posted on the 21 January 2013 by Mattie @comfyconfident

In Boston and across the US, there has been an outbreak of the flu. With the flurry of reporting over the flu epidemic and the shortage of hospital beds, I wanted to talk about quick natural tips for preventing and alleviating the flu from Dr. Brian Clement, co-director of the Hippocrates Health Institute (HHI).  HHI is one of the country’s top healthy-living, spa retreat centers.

Below are some simple steps you can implement from Dr. Brian Clement to stay healthy or recover more quickly from colds and flus.

Dr. Clement’ Tips for a Healthy Cold & Flu Season

  1. OSHA: Take 10 drops of this bio botanical every day.  Osha root is commonly used as a multi-therapy for cold and flu symptoms. The root has antiviral and antibacterial properties and, when taken at the onset of cold or flu, may help reduce the window of time in which symptoms are experienced.  Osha root helps clear mucus from the sinuses and lungs by increasing expectoration; this relieves congestion and makes breathing easier.
  1. Apple Cider Vinegar:  Twice a day mix two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with 8-12 oz. of water. This soothes the stomach, fights colds and gives an incredible boost of energy. Apple cider vinegar is available at your local grocery store.
  1. Sprouts: Use sprouted garlic and onion in a green veggie juice or in salads to cure the flu. Sprouted garlic and onions are available at most local health food stores.  Garlic and onion boost cells in the body that destroy infection causing viruses and bacteria.
  1. Cayenne: Sprinkle dried cayenne pepper on your salad at lunch, use in your favorite dinner recipe or take 10 drops a day in liquid form. The active ingredient in cayenne is capsaicin.  Capsaicin alleviates congestion and thins the mucus in your nasal passages so you can breathe again.

I hope these help everyone stay healthy and sickness free!
