10 OF THE BEST FOODS FOR COLD AND FLU TREATMENT

10 OF THE BEST FOODS FOR COLD AND FLU TREATMENT

Each of these 10 foods is a great choice to help you recover from a cold or flu. And if you include them in your diet year-round or during times of increased exposure to viruses, they will help prevent colds and flu.

When you feel the first signs of a cold or flu, try focusing your diet primarily on these 10 foods. A diet that is all or mostly healing fluids, such as fresh fruit and vegetable juices, will help you heal as quickly as possible, especially if you have a fever.

These foods are important not only for preventing and recovering from colds and flu, but also for strengthening and building the immune system, for treating chronic diseases and symptoms, for detoxifying the body and much more. The more you incorporate them regularly, the more you'll heal and the better you'll feel over time!

Celery stem juice kills pathogenic microorganisms, including influenza viruses. The unique form of vitamin C in it does not need conversion by the liver, which means that it immediately strengthens the immune system. Drink a pint or more of clear celery juice on an empty stomach. Read “Medical Medium Celery Juice” (not yet translated into Bulgarian), for more information on how to use this herbal medicine for treatment. ( If English is a problem for you, you can read all the articles on celery stalk juice that we have translated on our blog. )

Cucumber juice has anti-inflammatory compounds and agents that help calm the temperature, like pouring water on a fire. It is also deeply rejuvenating and hydrating. Drink half a liter or more of pure cucumber juice on an empty stomach. Or drink it anytime you have a fever. ( You can read more about the topic in the article: "Cucumber juice" .)

Lemon water is excellent for the immune system, detoxifies the liver and body, rehydrates and even helps with nausea. Squeeze half a lemon in half a liter of water every morning. Make more to drink throughout the day. ( You can read more about the topic in the article: "Water with lemon" .)

Ginger water helps prevent colds and flu and relieves fatigue, nausea and sore throats. Ginger also has its own form of vitamin C and helps bring the body out of a reactive state when you are sick. ( You can read more about the topic in the article: "Ginger Water" .)

Thyme tea and water are antiviral and help calm coughs, lower fevers, and fight colds and infections. For more information, see the article: "Shock Therapy with Thyme Tea" .

Turmeric and Ginger Shots are a powerful combination that can be just fresh turmeric and ginger juice, or add oranges and garlic to the recipe. These shots boost the immune system and can be drunk throughout the day when you have a cold or flu, or any time of the year. (You will learn more about these shots from the article: "Shots with turmeric and ginger" .)

Fresh fruit, leafy green and vegetable juices offer a variety of different nutrients and antioxidants that your body needs to heal itself. In the form of juices, they allow the body to heal as easily as possible. Try juicing apples, oranges, cucumbers, asparagus, melons, pears, celery, cilantro, parsley, dandelion, spinach, kale, radish greens, and more.

Medicinal broth is simultaneously healing, purifying and nourishing. It is rich in minerals that need replenishing when you have a cold or flu. See the article "Medicinal Broth" on our blog. It is best to strain the vegetables and drink only the broth when you have a fever.

Raw garlic is antiviral and antibacterial, killing only non-productive bacteria. It also strengthens the immune system. If you feel that something in your throat is irritating you and maybe you are coming down with a sore throat, a cold or the flu, crush a clove of raw garlic and eat it with half an avocado, a banana or some boiled potato. Repeat this three times daily until you feel better.

Raw honey helps your body maintain a strong first line of defense by strengthening neutrophils and macrophages to fight pathogens. If you feel yourself starting to get sick, take a teaspoon of raw honey before bed. Add raw honey to lemon water to boost honey's bioflavonoids and give the drink an extra immune boost.
