Cure Colds and Flu With Natural Health

  • Sharebar

It is not a good idea to take a bunch of over the counter medication in the hopes of simply sleeping through your cold or flu.  Sure it’s tempting but there are better ways to help yourself feel better and to get over your flu. Nature has come up with plenty of ways to help you deal with cold and flu symptoms and to heal from them entirely.

Here are natural remedies you can try.


Cayenne pepper is great for colds, flues and your sinuses.  Add some cayenne pepper to your tea to help stimulate and relax your sinuses so that you can breathe easier.  Another reason to take cayenne pepper when you are sick is that it will cause you to sweat which will help you heal.

You don’t have to eat a bunch of oranges to meet your vitamin C requirement.  A great source of Vitamin C is the leafy green vegetables.  If you feel yourself starting to get sick, aim for the green and leafy as well as the orange and round.  Other citrus fruits contain vitamin C as well.

Vitamin C is also found in bell peppers so why not add them to your favorite meals.  Adding bell peppers to your meals won’t just enhance the flavor of the food, it gives you the nutrients you need to build a strong body that is able to fight off illness.


It is not hard at all, really, to use this information if you become aware and commit to it.  Herbal teas are great because they contain ingredients that help you feel better but do not contain caffeine which can slow down the immune system’s response to illness.
Making your own tea with helpful ingredients is useful as well.  The tea will help you sweat which is always helpful in ridding your body of the toxins that are trying to take over while you deal with your cold or flu.  Using herbal and natural health methods to get well is a great idea.
Instead of running for the antihistamines and decongestants, run for your teas and your bottles of water.  Don’t forget to give yourself permission to rest up and give your body a chance to heal.

    For quick help in cold and flu, you may try this herbal tea – Boil some basil leaves in water, along with some black pepper and jaggery, till the water reduces to almost half. Then drink it sip by sip.

    This has been tried and tested by me on several occasions.
