Being sick sucks, it really does. You’re tired, achy, stuffed up, irritated… Not to mention every task becomes so bothersome. A few months ago, I wrote an article on how to get over your cold with a few DIY methods (click here to read). Sometimes when you’re sick, doing anything at all is just too much, even DIYs!. So, I thought I could provide some tips to help you fight the flu naturally! Some you can make at home and some might require a quick trip to the store (the last thing you want to do when you’re sick, I know).
This homeopathic formula is designed to alleviate symptoms such as congestion, runny nose, sneezing, coughing, sore throat, and chills/fever. This product contains Black Elderberry, which is plant that has been used for centuries to support the immune system and functions. It is best taken when you first start to notice symptoms.
This product makes no claim to help you fight a cold or flu, but it sure makes me feel better! Kombucha claims to have a high nutritional value while supporting a healthy immune function. I love it because it tastes great, gets rid of my sugar cravings, and gives me a boost of energy. The carbonation in kombucha seems to help clear up my nasal congestion! Pretty awesome, right?
3. Green Tea
Okay, this is mix between a visit to the store and DIY, but making this tea is pretty simple. A simple mix of warm water and green tea is all you need! I love having green tea when I’m ill because it soothes my throat, clears my nasal passage, and also improves my immune function! Adding honey and lemon makes it even better. Try looking for a quality, organic green tea which may contain higher amounts of immune boosting ingredients.
Stay happy and healthy, Coconuts!
