You’ve been feeling a tickle in your throat and a bit of a sniffle in your nose. Living in denial is certainly an option but it is likely that once you start to notice the symptoms it is probable that you’re already very sick. There are lots of natural health cures in your kitchen; there’s no need to start popping medications. Using natural health methods to cure an illness is a fantastic alternative to trying to cure your flu with chemicals and drugs. We won’t tell you to ignore your doctor but before you schedule the appointment, why not try a natural remedy for a couple of days and see if it works?
It turns out that your grandmother was right: chicken soup really can cure a cold-scientists have proven that it is possible! The ingredients in the chicken and vegetables are natural immune system boosters so, instead of jumping for the Dayquil the next time you feel like something is trying to get you, why not settle in with a giant bowl of some chicken soup (it’s best when it is homemade but canned varieties will work as well) and help your body kill that cold before it really gets started?
Garlic is a famous system detoxifier. To get better quickly, take 1500 mgs of garlic a day and wave good-bye to your cold! To get 500mgs into your system, eat one clove of garlic. This can be accomplished by either taking a tablet of garlic or by including a clove of garlic into your meals at least three times a day. It’s easy to keep garlic on hand-bottles of the spice are relatively inexpensive and garlic flowers are even cheaper. A note about garlic: the 500mgs a day 3 times a day remedy should not go beyond five days. Your doctor should be called if you spend more than five days feeling very sick.
Echinacea is a very popular supplement for people who want to keep the colds from advancing too far. As soon as you start to feel a cold or flu hit you, take some Echinacea so that it will do its job. One or two supplements of Echinacea, when taken early on, could have the power to completely stop the cold from affecting you. Echinacea can even help you when you’re already well into your cold by making your symptoms weaker and speeding up your healing process. In order to cure your cold you will need to take about 1200 mgs of Echinacea a day. To get the right dosage (taking all 1200 mgs will make you sick) take 400mg supplements three times per day.
Using natural health to build up your immune system is one of the best ways to prevent illness from taking hold. More importantly, knowing how to correctly treat the symptoms you do have can go a long way to helping you combat illness and to keep yourself from accidentally making yourself sicker. Your body will thank you for using natural methods to treat illness instead of simply throwing chemicals at whatever ailment comes your way.
