Natural Cold & Flu Remedies

Posted Dec 04 2012 3:11pm

It seems like everyone around me is getting sick lately.  Last week I started to feel sniffily so I decided to follow some ‘Natural Remedies‘ that I learned.

I was able to kick my cold in the butt!

Here’s the Advice:

Oil of Oregano

Oil of oregano is rich in vitamins, minerals and is anti-fungal/anti-bacterial.  The perfect combination to help your body fight off infection.

Warning** This stuff smells quite strong (no kissing for a few hours after you take it) and will burn unless you dilute it with water or take it in a capsule (my favorite way.)

Oil of Oregano

Yes, I know what your thinking- ‘Peroxide in my ears? What the hell?!’

It might sound scary but trust me it works.

Aren’t I cute when I’m sick :)

What you need:

-2 caps full of Hydrogen Peroxide

-Washcloth

-Somewhere to lay down

  1. Fill the cap with Hydrogen Peroxide
  2. Lay down and pour cap into your ear
  3. Let the hydrogen peroxide sit in your ear for 5-10 minutes
  4. Hold a washcloth over that ear and then tip your head to the other side to let it all drain out.
  5. Repeat on the other side.

You will hear some bubbling in your ear which is completely normal.

Some doctors believe that viruses enter your system through your ears and not your mouth/nose.

_____________

The major reasons your immune system becomes weakened and you come down with a cold are:

  • Eating too much sugar  (the culprit for everything right?) and dairy– dairy is known to create mucous and sugar actually stuns our white blood cells, both of which will weaken our immune system
  • Not getting enough rest (we all need to learn how to slow down!)
  • Inadequately managing your stress (another culprit for most diseases)
  • Vitamin D deficiency
Stay healthy!
