We’ve never had a flu shot…ever. Not even any kind of shot…ever…except for the “shot” of whiskey when sick with a cold!
Fortunately, we don’t get many colds and for that we are grateful. But when we feel one may be coming on, here are some of the things we do. Sometimes, it only takes one of these remedies to knock the bugs out.
Over time we’ve learn to…
• put hydrogen peroxide in our ears. This tends to get rid of bad bugs lurking around.
• gargle with Celtic Sea Salt or warm honey
• use Wellness tablets
• add Grapefruit Seed Extract to water as directed and drink .
• use Oregacyn
Here is another very simple remedy that is worth looking into. Although we have not tried it, it seems credible. Baking soda is amazing for lots of things. We have used it here for some ailments and it does work. If you want aluminum free baking soda iherb has it here
We have had great success with these and seldom have had any type of bad cold of flu. Previously, when our bodies had succumbed to the inevitable because we started the protocol too late, we would just do “hot toddies” and wait it out. It also helped. Just put some brandy or whiskey in hot water with lemon juice and honey, then drink.
But, recently, we have found an amazing natural aid when you find yourself with the flu. This one health tip should be shouted from the rooftops. It is hard to believe that something this simple can be so effective; yet, that is exactly what it is.
One family member recently experienced a flu bug that produced unbelievably painful symptoms. All the other natural means which had usually worked were totally ineffective against this particular strain. It attacked swiftly and viciously with a pain that was unbearable. The only thing we could think of was the fever needed to be relieved and that a bath would help sweat the toxins out. Then we remembered an age old remedy which would help one sweat the toxins out during a bath–ginger root. We quickly grated some fresh ginger root and added it to a tub of hot water. Within minutes, sweat began pouring out of every possible pore. Not only that, but even after the bath the sweating continued. The relief was instantaneous. Later during the day, another ginger bath was taken. To see the remarkable change in the person now after the horrific pain he had experienced previously was an eye opener . Had we done the bath at the first sign of a flu, there probably would not have been any flu to contend with. From then on, this was to be our first line of defense for any cold or flu. .
Here is a link which explains the procedure well.
We would just caution anyone trying this to monitor themselves and not allow yourself to get too dizzy during the bath. Go slowly and stay in the water as long as it feels comfortable to you. We would suggest that before embarking on a ginger bath, while very safe, do an internet search to see if there any precautions if you have a known medical condition, just to play it safe.
As a side note, although most of the family had gotten the flu during this episode, only one family member remained untouched by the bug. The reason appears to be that she was taking liquid concentrate Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE) by NutiBiotic bought from iherb.com. GSE is a powerful natural antibiotic. Apparently, this simple action spared that family member some suffering and was killing off any viruses and bacteria which came her way. From now on, this will also be used as a first line of defense to ward off anything during the flu season, etc. Additionally, there are so many other uses for this product which are listed on the label.
