Home Remedies For Cold and Flu We Recommend Trying

The rains are here and it’s like they came with the flu. Seriously, how are the two connected? Why is there some random outbreak of flu whenever the Weather changes?

All in all, the rains are a welcome change. We get to say goodbye to the annoying dust and most importantly there is hope for food security.

How have you been coping with the flu that’s going around? What have you been taking to keep the cold at bay or at least nurse that stubborn cold that is beyond antibiotics?

Did you know there is actually no cure for flu?

Below are some preventative measures and also remedies for the common cold. Speaking of which, why is it called common when there is never anything common about it? Correct me if I’m wrong but doesn’t the pain and discomfort feel different every time?

Anyway, let’s get to it.

Lemon, olive oil and honey shots

Squeeze the juice of one lemon into a glass, and add one tablespoon of extra virgin oil and a teaspoon of honey. Mix them up and drink up. This concoction works great to soothe dry throats and coughs.

Good old Dawa

Take about an inch or two of ginger, and a clove of garlic, peel, and pound/crush. Boil the paste in one and a half glass of water for about 10 minutes. Set aside and add juice of one lemon. Enjoy while hot. Take this three times a day and thank us later. Taking this daily also helps boost your immunity keeping infections at bay.

Hibiscus tea

This tea is the truth and nothing but the truth. Hibiscus tea is a great anti-oxidant and a great source of vitamin c. It also has anti-inflammatory properties making it great for fighting the flu. Steep a cup and enjoy with or without honey. Guaranteed results by your third cup😊.
