It’s nearly impossible to spend the winter without catching a few colds. Sometimes, taking the meds doesn’t just do the job and it needs a back-up AKA home remedies. Helping you with the latter, here’re some of the best home remedies for the flu.
Drink , drink, drink. Having a flu could leave your body dehydrated, that’s why you should make sure to make up for that by drinking at least 8 cups (64 ounces) of liquid each day-it doesn’t all have to water. Hot drink are much better for this disease, but avoid coffee, tea with caffeine and alcohol.
Have some soup. Because moms always know the best, it turns out that the delicious chicken soup your mom always make for you when you have cold could indeed help with the cold. So next time you catch a cold make sure to not miss your mom’s bowl of soup.
It’s time to be a couch potato. You’re most probably very tired because of the flu symptoms and you should listen to your body and just have some rest even if it means spending all day in bed until you feel good again.
Don’t be afraid to use the moist heat. Moist air helps ease nasal congestion and sore throat pain. You could indulge in a steamy shower or just turn on the shower and sit in the bathroom for a few minutes, inhaling the steam.
Spice up your meal. Adding a few healthy spices into your meal could help you relief the flu pain. For an example; garlic , ginger, chili or horseradish.
Finally, may your winter be a flue-free, but just in case you caught one, make sure to try these home remedies to have a less-painful cold.
