Home Remedies to Survive Cold and Flu Season

Try out these home remedies to stay healthy this cold and flu season.

Unfortunately, with the cold and flu running rampant, it can be difficult to stay healthy.  While you should take precautionary measures such as getting your annual flu shot and making sure that you are taking immune-boosting vitamins, sometimes this isn’t enough to protect you.  If you feel yourself starting to get sick, then try out these home remedies to stay healthy this cold and flu season.

1) Stay Hydrated

There’s a reason that doctors tell their patients to drink a lot of fluids; when you are properly hydrated, your body has an easier time fighting off illness.  For starters, drinking lots of water helps your body flush out the toxins and germs that are making you feel ill.  Additionally, staying hydrated keeps the mucus membranes in your eyes and nose moist.  This makes them more effective at catching and removing viruses and bacteria from your body.

2) Raw Honey

If your throat is feeling raw, then treat it with warm water or tea sweetened with a little raw honey.  Not only is honey soothing for sore throats, but it also has antibacterial properties that can help you boost your immune system.  Drinking honey can also help alleviate coughing, making it an ideal remedy for many of the symptoms that you may experience this cold and flu season.

3) Ginger Root

Ginger root can be used to alleviate feelings of nausea for those suffering from the flu.  For home treatment, you can buy ginger root capsules, powder, or extracts.  Additionally, you can sip organic, corn syrup-free ginger ale or tea made from fresh ginger root to quell feelings of nausea throughout the day.
